To lay the controversy/rumors to rest, I transferred a Roost Kyurem over, and it works.
At the moment, (Kanto) Slowpoke cannot be transferred to Galar, and neither can its evolutions. You'll have to wait for the upcoming DLC for them.Will kanto slowbro (water/psychic) be in? From what I hear regional forms for existing galar mons are in but idk if that applies to galarian slowpoke -> slowbro -> kanto slowbro.
If so, I think it may have some potential as another option for a bulky water.
they cant be used in ranked, because the rules for the actual season cant be changed anymoreCan someone test this with a non-modded pokemon? Everyone on twitch is telling me they can’t be used, I’m not trying to troll
I don't really see Jellicent being popular w/ Pex around, which is by far the best Keldeo counter (unless it got some coverage i don't know about?)
Y'all are sleeping on Teleport Clefable, I think defensive sets will benefit greatly from immediately swinging momentum in your favor. I've been spamming teleport Xatu in RU, and damn is that move good. Outside of that, Softboiled is good, Unaware will be nice for Hydrei, etc etc
I can't wait for the fun to be had with Eject Pack Ninetales+Dugtrio to snipe Toxapex! Then what's gonna stop Growth Venu (outside of bulletproof Kommo)? Regardless, I think Weather Ball Venu, in a meta with Heatran, could make Sun a viable archetype. Excited to try it out.
Roost/Sub/Freeze Dry/Earth Power sounds devastating against bulkier teams. With pressure you can probably beat defensive Corvi! Dragon Dance physical variants might also have some merit, but special sets look very fun to pay with.
If Keldeo becomes popular I could see Jellicent becoming popular as a response, it's also a Vish check so there's more to it than just Keldeo walling.
Jsyk Corviknight doesn't get Toxic since it wasn't in Gen 7.
I'm pretty sure this thing absolutely hates Home. While the addition of Toxic is nice, it can't really fit it into it's moveslot
I agree, I’m really upset by this actually because I’ve been enjoying the meta, and really hoped transfer only moves wouldn’t be a thing. 6v6 casual battles are the only place in game where people abide by Smogon rules, usually 7-8/10 battles you can tell people are following our rules there. Now with these new additions, casual battles have been ruined for me which sucks. I can’t tell if they’ll have transfer moves or not, almost unpredictable. I lost my old ds, and this was my first Pokémon game since X/Y I have no way to get these old Pokémon. It also adds another confusing mechanism to building teams. The game was clean as is, really hoping for them to ban transfer moves completely from online :/ or else sadly I’m going to have to move to the 4v4 ranked meta online which I really don’t wanna do just so I can still compete knowing we all have equal access to the same moves. Blahh cheers friends!I feel like this shitty meta is getting worse and worse. Toxic, hbell/aromatherapy and knock off were removed from most pokemons and it was a wise choice, now we are back to the same shit. Truly a loathsome meta, let’s hope for some swift bans.
