Today I'm covering a few random ones that I missed.

Decidueye: This is my second favorite starter evolution. I really like the idea, but glasses on a pokemon seems odd to me. And from what I've seen, it doesn't really use it's wings as a bow to shoot arrows, but rather shoots them like a hedgehog. Interesting. It also has a new hidden ability, long reach.

Incineroar: Although it's my least favorite of this generation, it does place high in my favorite fire starters list. Honestly, while it may not be bipedal like everyone wanted, at least it's a fire type!

Primarina: This one happens to be my favorite. I started off on team popplio, and it looks like it stayed that way! Water/Fairy is a perfect typing for it, and I'm glad this leak was real. In terms of competitive, it has the hidden ability liquid voice. I can't wait to see what it does!

Trumbeak: An interesting middle evolution in my opinion. I wouldn't consider it cute or cool anymore. It's just... there. And middle evolution aren't very good in competitive, making this one not a great pokemon.

Toucannon: Not a bad pokemon competitively at all! It has great attack, but surprisingly low speed for a flying pokemon. It also loses it's hidden pickup ability for sheer force, a more competitive viable ability.

Crabrawler: I honestly thought this was gonna be a standalone pokemon, but I was wrong! Unfortunately, because it's a first evolution, that also means it's a lot worse in competitive then I was expecting. Anger point however, is a great ability.

Crabominable: This thing is a pain to spell. And it's just so weird... how did a crab boxer turn into a yeti snowcrab? beats me. Fighting/Ice is a pretty cool typing, and once again, it's abilities are really cool.

Oricorio: I like all 4 styles, Baille, Pom-Pom, P'au, and Sensu. I like Pom-Pom the most in terms of appearance, but for a serious competitive match I would pick Sensu for it's typing. It's ability Dancer is gonna be interesting. Really makes you think twice before choosing a move.

Wishiwashi: Kinda confused about how it's ability works. I honestly can't say if it'll be useful in competitive because it needs the schooling ability, which means it can't have a secondary effect in battle. It will be interesting to see.

Mareanie: I don't know what in the world this is based on, but I admit I like it. Not great in competitive, but a better poison/water type then Tentacool/Tentacruel will be pretty cool.

Toxapex: This is another pokemon that I like, but I don't know why. Toxapex has an interesting stat distribution, as some of it's stats go up by a lot, and some don't go up at all.

I'll finish this series up at entry 5 or 6.

    HA Incineroar is very well-received as well. The genius bonus of being based on a heel wrestler rather than a regular one adds to the feedback of its Dark-typing. And it can learn Leech Life, for some reason, begging its use even more. X3

    Indeed! I was mostly just focusing on the new abilities, because I didn't know what they did, but all 3 have some great potential!
