Fire Slash makes total sense. Fire totally needs better moves and now's the time for it imo.

Yeah, I'm quite surprise we have yet to have elemental slashes...well beyond Oshawott's semi-signature move.

I can see Fiery Slash, but not really for Water/Grass. I mean grass isn't overly sharp and water is just... wet. XD; Sooo if anything we'd hopefully get like Fiery Slash. :3

We already have a grass version actually, Leaf Blade.
I meant Ice, Electric, Fire, Water slashes.
However...how about making a grass punch called Wood Punch that may cause flinching?

Oh right Leaf Blade ahaha. Ice Slash would be awesome, so would Wood Punch! Don't think there'd be anything for electric, though...

Electro slash? I feel like if they make one Luxray will have it, and so will Raikou, and maybe even...Raichu.

Elemental Claws might work better, along the lines of Shadow Claw.

Well shadow claw is a Ghost version of Slash... I guess they could call them claws too if they want to :3

How about making a water version of Double edge? We've already got grass and fire versions of the move but lack water.

Not sure how water can really hit hard other than Waterfall. More Scald-like moves should appear tho imo.

New powerful AND accurate Physical Water, Fire, Electric and Ice moves are needed in my view (with good distribution).

New powerful AND accurate one-turn Special Grass, Ghost, Rock and Steel moves are also needed in my opinion.

Most importantly though, I'd like to see Fire and Ice versions of Stealth Rock - something like "Lava Rise" and "Deep Freeze" - that does damage on entry (with type-effective damage), or even burns/freezes on entry (although this might be too powerful). I think these would really mix up the metagame nicely, making Fire and Ice less useless defensively (although Rock types might still be favourable since they'd take half damage from Lava Rise...).

Perhaps Deep Freeze could cause the enemy to slip over on entry, causing more (and type-effective) damage the more the enemy weighs?

There could even be a Flying entry hazard - something like "Tornado" that would mess with the weight mechanics by picking everything up off the ground and tossing them about for damage. Flying-types (and possibly 'mons with Levitate) wouldn't take damage since they can control themselves in midair.

Thoughts?

Cool ideas, but like you said some of them do seem overpowered.

Personally, I think that the ones we currently have suffice enough. Sure, they may be inaccurate at times, but I feel that's to really balance out their power. After all, one wouldn't want to be taken a full on Fire Blast in Sun when there's a chance that it could miss though, right? :x

I wouldn't mind this, but I think it'd be pushing it a bit much to have them burn/freeze on entry. Especially Deep Freeze, that would mean that every single Pokemon that isn't an Ice type gets frozen, and that wouldn't be good. D:

I honestly think that SR would suffice, because Flying doesn't really hit many things super effectively. Meaning it'd probably only be useful for grass/bug types, but not much for other types out there, really.

Deep Freeze sounds like it could be good, although I think I'd call it something like Ice Rink or Ice Skate idk, because Deep Freeze to me just makes me think of Kyurem and not an entry hazard move.

So we do actually have Parabolic Charge and Parting Shot confirmed. With these in mind, what else do you think we'll get (that seem to be suited to the new Pokemon?) Maybe something like a new type of Head Smash exclusive for Gogoat and previous Bulls?

I don't think Gogoat's line will be getting an exclusive move. Maybe Fletchling will learn a fire version of Sky attack in it's final form?

I was recently playing Pokemon White 2 and found one of these trainers:


Who said "a flood of attacks from three Pokemon..." *hits B button* "I know! 'Jetstream' attack! Let's call it that." I thought this might be a new move that would be debuted in X & Y.

What do you guys think?

I think it may reference a new battle mechanic for double and triple battles with moves combining to form a new attack, like the pledge attacks did, but with maybe all attacks doing something like this... Maybe rotation battles will allow combos like that too somehow.

Or it may simply be a random NPC saying something weird just like every other random NPC in every Pokemon game ever =P

If Parabolic Charge is the electrical equivalent to Absorb, then I can imagine there might be equally equivalent electric type moves to Mega Drain and Giga Drain.

Not necessarily- Horn Leech, Drain Punch and Leech Life don't have any same-type variants.
