Is my most wanted addition in the next Pokemon series. I'm crossing my fingers that Game Freak will tweak Xerneas' moveset in Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire. My most wanted addition to Xerneas' moveset is Play Rough, which is the only physical Fairy-type move. I could never understand why Xerneas wasn't given the opportunity to learn Play Rough in Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, considering that Pokemon's base Attack and Special Attack stats are even. Physical moves that Xerneas can learn in Pokemon X and Pokemon Y includes: Close Combat (Fighting), Giga Impact (Normal), Horn Leech (Grass), Megahorn (Big), Night Slash (Dark), Outrage (Dragon) and Rock Slide (Rock). If I had my way, I would replace Outrage with Play Rough, because I find it odd that a physical Xerneas' most powerful anti-Dragon move isn't a Fairy-type move. Question: Should Xerneas be allowed to learn Play Rough?
This Gengar is as ready for a fight as it is for a fright! I finally took a trip to visit my local GameStop yesterday to acquire a code to download a special October 2014 Shiny Gengar. Showcased below is the full details of the Pokemon that I acquired during that promotion: Pokemon: Gengar Level: 25Nature: Relaxed (+Defense;-Speed)Characteristic: Strong willedItem: Gengarite Moves Learned: Shadow Ball (Ghost | Special) Sludge Wave (Poison | Special Confuse Ray (Ghost | Status) Astonish (Ghost | Physical) Stats: HP: 67 Attack: 40 Defense: 40 Special Attack: 76 Special Defense: 50 Speed: 57 IVs: HP: 9 Attack: 11 Defense: 9 Special Attack: 25 Special Defense: 30 Speed: 17 I like how I received a Gengar with one of the worst possible Natures... and to make matters worse, its low HP and Defense IVs hinders its defensive Nature.
Before/after you. I received a code today via the Pokemon Trainer Club Newsletter to download a special demo of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire. Hardcore Pokemon Trainers in North America have been boasting the exact time they received their code... because that's what humanity has come to. I figured that I'd join in the boasting fun by revealing that I received my code at 6:36 AM Pacific Daylight Time on October 21, 2014.
To illuminate all immunities? The Scrappy Pokemon Ability allows the user to strike Ghost-type Pokemon using damage dealing Normal and Fighting-type moves. Some Pokemon Trainers have asked Game Freak to amend the Scrappy Ability to allow its user to illuminate all immunities. For example, with that amended Ability: Normal hits Ghost. Electric hits Ground. Fighting hits Ghost. Poison hits Steel. Ground hits Flying. Psychic hits Dark. Ghost hits Normal. Dragon hits Fairy. It's pretty safe to say that a majority of Pokemon Trainers would oppose that amendment, because no Pokemon should be given a free pass to guarantee a hit during a switch in. I would personally oppose that amendment, because Pokemon X/Y is currently plagued with overpowered Pokemon, and luck based Abilities and moves. The last thing that series needs is more Pokemon to worsen the situation...
