SPOILERS! Pokemon Sword & Shield Pre-Release SPOILERS - Check Post 2!

Something that just crossed my mind: event pokemon can now learn egg moves. That means the LGPE pikachu would have access to fake out, eevee would have covet or captivate, etc.
Are we certain that they have egg move data? They might be stored as different species, like Ash Greninja.

I'd love to know whether the LGPE save bonuses have partner stats, and if so, whether Pikachu still benefits from the Light Ball. If it does, it will see competitive use for sure.
 
Do we know if the rumored ability for the box legends (all moves are super effective/all moves have guaranteed status effects) is true?

Easy way to figure out:
-Can LGPE Pikachu/Eevee breed with other Pikachu/Eevee?
 
Normally I'd suggest that Zamazenta could run a Toxic stall set, but we don't know if it gets recovery, it doesn't even get passive Leftovers if you want to keep its Steel type, and most importantly all four Pokemon that we can assume are Uber are immune to Toxic in the forms they're likely to be used in.

They really missed a trick by not giving Eternatus Corrosion.
 
I mean, being able to give to your loyal starter egg moves seems like a nice payoff, so that I’m not forced to use them just as an egg factory. :v
Don't get me wrong, being able to chose ANY pokémon you had in previous gens —im thinking about the future too— and change it's IVs and Nature to make it competitive is exceptional. If only they gave us an ability capsule to get Dream World abilities it'd have been perfect.

It's only that it makes me a bit sad because I started breeding —like serious breeding— back in DPPl, then I wrote a lot of guides for spanish forums and so on, my Pokémon experience has been heavily related to this aspect of the games so, for me, even if this is surely a great QOL improvement, it's impossible not to feel sad about this.
