Calling box legendaries "pay to win" doesn't even makes sense when one of the main features of the games is trading and they do a lot of distributions for those legendaries too.
Getting online to trade or download event Pokemon used to be free and now won't be.
He caught *literally* every mon he came across.

That's some grinding and a half. The level curve is still up in the air.



Gigantamax doesn't seem to change stats. 4Chan leaker confirmed Charizard's G-Max form only increased HP.

That means Gigantamax only changes moves. That's it.

It adds a layer of choice imo, without breaking the initial idea of flexibility. Surprisingly good call from GF.

In fact, G-Max Zard is thoroughly inferior to Regular D-Max Zard unless its move's side effect also traps like Fire Spin instead of setting a Sea of Flames like the Pledge combo.
The move could just have higher base power and/or be a spread attack. Even without it, the side effect is most likely better in doubles since there will be a lot of options for getting rid of Sunny Day, but the G-Max move is guaranteed to set up some pretty good damage over time with just one use.

TM Reward is Revenge. Missed the number.

No idea of what Machamp's G-Max Move is.

The AI is quite possibly the worst I've ever seen.
3 turns of Max Moves. Not a single STAB. Even on neutral matchups.

Yes, all part of how the game is becoming more pay-to-win and how it will be much more expensive for less content than before.
That would be pay-to-play. If you need to pay to even play the game (online) and pay no more than that to do anything else, that's just pay to play. Pay-to-win means paying more money to give you higher chance of winning.

G-Max Finale seems to heal 20% regardless of damage.

Can't vouch for the AI, but the Alcremie set looks pretty good.
Edit: Nvm, AI is pretty derpy.

Wack af since you get the Dazzling Gleam TM waaaaaay earlier.

This is like the biggest mystery at the moment
I'm going to guess it changes forms when using Overdrive.
 
Could his form be based off using the signature move? I do think it could be like the sig move forms for the s&m legends, or it changes stats until it switches kinda like aegislash, finally it amps up after using charge

A good guess but I just feel like that’s too obvious and someone would have tested it by now.
