Politoed is my favorite Pokemon.

The majority of "busted" Megas were a result of giving power boosts to already strong Pokemon or giving them poorly balanced abilities on GF's part. If Farfetch'd did get a mega as opposed to an actual evolution it would've been one like Beedrill's. What turns me off about these new cross-gen evos is that they're regional, so it's easy to flick that "doesn't matter" switch again and just make it irrelvant again because the next region won't be cold enough for Farfetch'd to evolve or something.

At first, I was upset by the idea of “oh these are temporary, so why does it matter?” But I realized that’s just how things are in any other game, so might as well just enjoy them. I think that dynamaxing is still a complete gimmick, and I’m very skeptical of the gigantimax forms. I’ll enjoy stuff I genuinely like, like Sirfetch’d, with the expectation he won’t exist in the future.

As for Sirfetch'd himself, I like how he looks. I used a Farfetch'd in FRLG and it wasn't too bad as long as it was holding a stick. Mono Fighting (though this isn't really too bad) with Steadfast is a bit dull though, and the description of his new signature move makes it sound like a reskinned Giga Impact unless they're explaining it badly. Maybe he gets a unique hidden ability?

Steadfast, and the signature move both suck. I just want him to be usable.

Oh, and about the Ditto evo: I feel like they scrapped that after realizing how redundant it would be. Ditto's whole schtick is that he copies the stats and moves of the opposing Pokemon, so giving him an evolution wouldn't really change anything unless they take away what makes Ditto... Ditto? Maybe the Shield counterpart won't even be a Generation 1 Pokemon, or it could just be a furball Meowth or something.

You’re right about ditto. I just sort of like the weird design, and I wish Ditto could have more of an identity, although for reasons stated that’s obviously counterintuitive. :mrgreen:

You have fantastic tastes. I don’t know why, but I love Politoed and Slowking, for how kind of...random they are? I don’t mean that in a “RAWR LOL XD” kinda way. They’re just Pokémon that most people forget/ignore, but they’re still old enough to have intense nostalgia over.

10/10 with Slowking too btw, always gave me a more kaiju vibe than Slowbro for some reason?

The odd thing is Poliwrath is so horribly boring to me, I love Poliwag and Poliwhirl, then the third stage is just like a bulkier Poliwhirl? Meh. Politoed has this simple, cute design that I just gush over while looking like a proper third stage for the line.

Yeah, Politoed was always [the] Poliwhirl evolution for me, really wish you didn't have to trade it.

The Grookey final evo is pretty good. Unique concept, good design (can't go wrong with gorillas). Sobble's middle evo is trash, though. As is every other mon revealed today. Think I'm finally growing out of the franchise as most of the new designs are not appealing at all.

Can someone PM the supposed leaks?

There are a lot of supposed leaked designs and I dunno which are the supposed legit ones

I know, right? There's like a whole page dedicated to it! I sure am glad I stumbled into the Godzilla vs Kong thread out of idle curiosity, I was beginning to think I'd never find a place to talk about A Quiet Place. Maybe they should just cancel GvK altogether so we can all go see A Quiet Place 2 and discuss that here come March 2020?

All of them, and yet simultaneously, none of them are. Best to wait another week.

I like Intelleon. Then again I'm also a degenerate and probably a furry, so I'm not the best judge here.

I was being ironic about the furry and degenerate thing to be clear, but whatever floats your boat, man.

Also, you guys keeping up with all the leaks? Right now my team is looking like the apple wyrm, Grimmsnarl, Intelleon, Coalossal, Mr. Rime, and Corviknight.

Looking at the leaks that are out and about, I'm pretty much unimpressed with these new Pokemon designs.

They threw any sort of sense out the window. Galarian Mr. Mime evolves into Chaplin, there's a pie dragon, KISS, and Meowth can become longcat. Face it, we Yokai Watch 3 now.

If the leaks are what we will be truly getting from these games, I'm not impressed. I've played every handheld game up to this point and opted to skip out on Let's Go when I learned how the mechanics were going to work, but everything since the move to 3DS has just been underwhelming. The last games I truly enjoyed were B2/W2, and I think that's where my cutoff is going to be in terms of collecting/replaying the games.

The only Pokemon that looks legible is the Centipede one.
