    On anything else, having rechargeable moves be non-recharge-able after a successful kill would just render them ridiculously overpowered, therefore banning said moves from competitive play. I mean, Frenzy Plant Venusaur in sun? Blast Burn Solar Power Charizard in Sun? Hydro Cannon subpetaya Empoleon? No thanks.
    Well there is a reason for why they changed it back in Generation II, the no recharge if KO made Hyper Beam over powered at the time, though it seems to have been nerfed as time went on...

    I'm hoping that Geomancy won't be another Hyper Beamesk attack like Roar of Time was. I'll rather have a fairy version of Earthquake or even Aero Blast than that.

      porygon z with adaptability can run hyper beam to get a ko on a huge amount of otherwise specially defensive pokemon, but there are generally better options. other than that, yeah it's pretty sub-par.

        Unless the scoop of the century is that every region will be in this game, or that it is magically platform compatible, or something along those lines, I have a feeling that this "scoop of the century" will be very anti climactic.

          they look more like old-school Digimon than Pokémon. :\

            I like it. I'm glad it looks exactly like the most recent drawing of it, because that sketch was what I was hoping for it to look like.

            Too be honest, I thought it would be a lot bigger. I guess I was too used to comparing it with Cherrymon from Digimon, but now that I think about it, none of the sprites I've seen have truly matched their actual height, so it doesn't matter to me. XD

            Also, I noticed the EXP bar is no longer a solid two colors, but now has a fade effect to it.

              It does match the pic that Serebii showed, it's funny how I was once comparing this thing to a Digimon character lol. But can't wait to see more information on Orotto, including its typing.

              I really like this thing. I'm glad it matches the final picture Serebii showed cause that's the one I liked the most. I really hope that it's a Grass/Dark cause to me it looks like it's sort of evil or posses.

              I honestly don't get why everyone is saying it "looks like a Digimon". Even after looking at Digimon such as "Woodmon" and "Cherrymon" I still don't see much resemblance. Oorotto looks much more slender and a bit taller than both of those Digimon and it has fewer foliage. I think it's distinctive enough to not resemble any Digimon too much. Not similar enough in my opinion.

              Besides, there shouldn't be a stereotype or set definition of what either a Pokemon or a Digimon should look like. That should be up to their respective creators.

              I didn't say that it looked like those two Digimons.
              I only said that it looked like a Digimon. :3

              But anyway, about its type, yeah, I could also see it being Grass/Dark type. :3

                I think the only reason why I mentioned "Cherrymon" in my post was from the early, early sketches of it. I guess I just grew that mindset that it would be similar to it in stature. Fortunately it isn't, and I think that it's a genuine Pokemon. :)

                Typing-wise, I'll throw a dart at the board blind-folded and just say Grass/Ghost(hopefully!) or Grass/Dark(will settle, but it's nothing brand new). There is a possibility of it being Grass/Fairy too, but for whatever reason I just don't see it. I guess it's because my mind is tainted from how I perceive fairies, even though fairies in folklore can be demonic or "fallen."

                  Grass/Dark or Grass/Ghost

                  The rot could indicate, decaying or death, which would suit ghost-type.
                  The rot could indicate, spoiled or impure, which would suit dark-type.

                    Is it weird that I'm actually so excited for this? Haha it's the little details that count for me and this is totally it!!

                    They hit the nail on the head with their sketch, obviously it's at a smaller scale due to the Horde Battle but it will be nice to see the Official Artwork once it has been released.

                      Based on looks alone, I kinda want Oorotto for my team. Hoping its some kinda fairy type combo so I have an excuse to add a fairy to my team.

                      Might be out of line but Awex was seen in a Horde battle, yet I doubt we will see it's evolution in a Horde battle. Yet we might because of this. This also brings me to this, Oorotto could infact be a evolution of sudowoodo. Now, I know not of alot of people think this anymore. But this revives my hope of it being a evolution.

                        It looks skinner than how I had imagined.

                          Soodowoodo is a petrified tree, a dead tree. Oroto could be a Ghost / Grass, a literal "dead tree".

                            Now that I see orotto more closely, to me it looks like it's going to be a single type pokemon. Either grass, dark, poison or ghost. (Steel could be a possibility as something unexpected and random, but i doubt it).

                              But Grass/Ghost type trees tend to be enchanted trees (in this case normal trees possessed by spirits) rather than dead trees.

                              Now I'm struggling on whether I should use Gogoat or Oorotto on my team as my Grass type, if it's even confirmed to be a Grass type.

                                I don't think they've announced it. We'll find out soon though, as the next Corocoro comes out in 12 days or so.

                                  Looking at some fan art of Orotto: http://volatilet1mes.deviantart.com/art/Oorotto-389688413

                                  It kinda makes me wonder if it's actually some sort of dark or ghost stick spider-like creature that wears the bark off of trees as some kind of armour.

                                  Just imagine him without the foliage and bark, like some kind of tubular shadow creature with spider legs.

                                  I can imagine him slipping out of the bark, sorta like how Cohagrigus has his hands coming out of the coffin.

                                  Not sure if I will want him on my team though, at least I prefer him to Gogoat.

                                    Will probably comment on other developments later...but Oorotto's design looks cool (a little reminiscent of the Digimon Cherrymon and Woodmon (moreso Cherrymon), although I'd imagine that all 'tree-based' fictional monsters will look similar to another at one point or another). It also seems like a dreadful thing to encounter in hordes within a forested area... :<

                                    My hopes are that it's a Grass/Ghost type (or maybe Grass/Dark; something part Grass-type, at least, not another Sudowoodo typing-betrays-design ordeal), with a possible English name of Rotroot or Bruteroot (1st Pokemon movie's novelization's nicknames FTW).

                                    Additionally, giving it the Ability Flash Fire would be a bit interesting, as it would nullify the common weakness of Fire and would likely surprise/dash the hopes of Trainers who were planning on taking it on with a Fire-type Pokemon. (I haven't seen Fennekin's recent trailer with Oorotto yet, but if a Fire-type is used, Flash Fire can still be saved for a potential 2nd or 3rd/Hidden Ability). ^^

                                    I wouldn't be overly surprised to see Oorotto end up like Sudowoodo, but I really hope it's not the case :( I know Sabre's theory about it being something hiding in bark could be true, and there's a precedent set (kinda) with the new fairy thing that lives ON flowers but isn't one, but I really would rather it be Grass type. Hoping for Grass/Ghost here.
