    Oohh glad to hear it. Usually hate the "token bird" of each Gen but he's looking different for once! I heard they've nerfed Talonflame though? Still waiting for it to come out and gonna have zero time over the next few weeks to play it. =.=;

    Bit sad that Moon doesn't get Vulpix though, gotta be the coolest looking "remake" going.
    Yeah talonflames gale wing will only work at max hp now.

    Fair does, the guy RQ because my vikavolt tanked 2 hits to 1 hp. If I'm swapping anything it'll probably be minior since that still requires a bit of setup and can be 1 hit by a lot. Tapu koko is pretty mediocre since its move pool isn't good for its stats (only electric physical attacks are spark and wild charge).
    Doesn't need physical moves; Thunder(bolt), Volt Switch, Dazzling Gleam and HP Fire, when coupled with Electric Terrain, make it pretty strong. I've even seen it 2HKO Aegislash with Thunder before.

    eShop will likely be midnight, possibly 9am or something. Shops will be whenever they open. I've ordered mine though, so I'm hoping it will come in the morning post

    Fair does, with its terrain just compared to most other sp atk electrics and it outdoes them. Current team is: araquanid (keeping this thing, my game maker), vikavolt, mudsdale, salazzle, porygon z with z-conversion and toucannon (counters so many physical sweepers).

    Once the metagame has settled down a bit, we'll have to have a battle! I haven't actually played anything on Showdown yet as I'm waiting to play the game first, but I'll have to get a bit of practise over the weekend! Complete Zygarde got banned today btw.

    Current team atm:

    Toucannon
    Araquanid
    Turtonator
    Palossan
    Tsareena (biggest troll match just now, idiot against me used accelrock and could've killed my tsareena with a normal move since he was faster and I had 5% hp and then a decideuye using sucker punch... both moves failed because of my ability and he RQ after getting wiped)

    Yeah I agree, there's even more of a story focus than BW. And some of the 'side quests' (as much as you can call them that), like finding 8 Stuful slow the game down too. I'm enjoying it so far, but it needs a bit of work on pacing.

    -----

    My team thus far is:

    - Primarina
    - Mudsdale
    - Lycanroc (Day)
    - Salazzle
    - Haunter
    - Charjabug (can't evolve yet)

    All are level 37/38, just about to start the ghost trial.
