Looks like one more Corocoro leak.

From serebii of course.

Namakobushi: Said to be able to send its insides out from its mouth and use as a fist.



It's speculated to be a water/fighting type since a Namako is a Sea Cucumber and the Fist it sends out / Kobushi (means fist)

Kinda loving this thing already.

These were supposed to be showcased tomorrow/this Friday, but apparently they got leaked early: http://nintendoeverything.com/rumor-new-pokemon-alola-forms-shown-in-sunmoon-leak/

That alolan Raichu is so cute omg.
Lanturn
well they released the japanese video now on their youtube. Cool stuff. Note that Team Skull's pokemon are not in Pokéballs, but Ultra Balls and such.

Ummm... I don't know if anyone else here plays competitive pokemon or not but I just got back to playing pokemon showdown after a 2-3 year hiatus and damn the competitive meta seems so different. Clefable is so much cancer now; I love it.

competitive what? smogon? vgc 15/16?

GG anime.

Live Pokémon Sun/Moon stream at Gamescom starting shortly: https://www.twitch.tv/nintendodeutschland


New Content:

During the Gamescom presentation by Battle Director Shigeki Morimoto, we learned some new information about Sun & Moon. First, we saw a new Z-Move used by Pikachu which was Normal-type called Hyper Sprintangriff in German, translates to Hyper Sprint Attack. In addition to this, a world first reveal came which showed a new Pokémon, Turtonator, which is Fire/Dragon-type with the ability Shell Armor and a new move called Shell Trap which will cause the opponent to get hit by an explosion of damage if it hits Turtonator in the same turn.

Note English name is Turtonator.

meh. I like VGC more cause it's much more fast-paced. But yes, Clefable is viable now since it became a Fairy and got a +10 on SpA. Heck, even Clefairy is viable in VGC because of Friend Guard.



btw do steps count toward egg hatching when you're offline in Pokemon Go?
Hika
nope @ Navi

I don't think it has background app refresh properly enabled but that's just what I think
Cause I haven't tried

Another unannounced trailer:

I think Stufful just made my heart melt <3

also, no, you have to have the app open on your screen in order for distance to count

Well I just found my favorite fighting type for this Gen... And I don't mean that cute little bear. It's got a tag sticking out of its butt.

Sandcastles look great still. I love the shovel that spins on Palossand's head.

ps. Someone should really update the opening post.

Oh yeah if anyone here has competitive knowledge/experience I would appreciate some help by rating my pokemon team. Missing 2 generations of competitive has just made me an absolutely clueless, terribad player and ever since I started playing again I've made a bunch of horrible teams. This is the first Mega Lopunny-based team I've made; I've only made Mega Gardevoir and Zard X based teams prior to this one.

not sure about the Fake Out on Turn 12. Mega Lopunny is faster anyway.
