my dumb theory is that it's in the dex so some alolan scientist can show up to the place that revives the fossilmons and goes "what are you idiots doing, this is what a real amalgamation looks like!"Some interesting stuff here. Silvally's available, huh? Weird pick with intriguing story implications but I'm not complaining,
With Smeargle gone, I would assume they've cut moves that can't legally be learned by anything. A list would be interesting, actually.Sorry to open another can of worms, but is it known whether all moves made the transition? Granted, few would notice if obscure moves such as Mud Sport, Rototiller, or Gear Up were removed, but knowing they weren't there would make the game feel a little less substantial.
Heracross was not present in the original SM Dex.I know we got a lot of cool bugs but damn, RIP to Scyther, Scizor, Heracross, and Pinsir. The OG good bugs. Is this the first time, bar BW, that Heracross is not available in the regional dex?
And RIP the queen Volcarona.
"632"I'd like to understand exactly why 400 is a low number. We've had several generations with less than that. Sure, it's been a while, but other than the lower metagames, how many of the 800+ Pokémon were really viable? I'd rather have a balanced metagame with 400 mon than a bloated one full of fillers.
That said, every game since GS has an expanded post-game Dex, so i wouldn't be surprised if the 600+ becomes kinda true.
