Mega Darkrai, nooo. Mega Darkrai more speed, Nooo. Mega Darkrai with Compound Eyes/No Guard-esque ability, NOOOOO. Plez no make it stahp.
Do we have any starter predictions?
Well, rather than predictions I suppose it’s more accurate to say, what types would you like to see for the starters?
I suppose we can, as usual, assume water/grass/fire. Honestly I wouldn’t mind seeing starters that don’t have secondary typings but it’s looking pretty unfair for grass types who only have Torterra and Chesnaught, and mega sceptile but I won’t count him. Basically the ones we have are 1 fire-5 fire/(3 fighting, 1 flying, 1 psychic), 4-grass/(1 ground, 1 fighting) and 3 water-3/(1 ground, 1 steel, 1 dark).
I’m interested in seeing types that will either negate the grass > fire > water > grass route, for example, grass/dark, fire/psychic, water/fighting (gen 6 you were so close)
Alternatively I would also like to see types that won’t affect each other unfairly. For example Grass/Flying, Fire/Fairy, Water/Ghost.
Or the best option would be if they lead us down a path of hinting origin animals and silhouettes of leafy, blazy, watery blobs of doom then reveal that they’re all just fire/fighting types. That’s the best option and you know it.
I’m still hoping for a very annoying normal/ghost type or a non-dialga steel/dragon or better yet a dragon/fighting type which I’ve been wishing for since gen 3. If anything the addition of fairy types would stop it from being too broken if it has good stats but you never know. We have plenty of x4 weakness Pokemon in OU and Brave Bird Talonflame ruins everything fighting type, barring Terrakion/Cobalion I suppose. blah blah blah
Also, any predictions for the legends? Fire and Water/Ice seem obvious but psychic and dark seem like things that can be applied too, thank you espeon and umbreon.
Do you think we’ll see literal poke-sonifications of the moon and the sun or will it perhaps be more subtle in its design? Maybe our Sun legend will be the snake/wolf/bird/idk who ate the sun. Who knows! Isn’t it fun to use our imaginations?
