I've settled with Scorbunny because I really enjoy Cinderace's design and movepool (dat HA). With the datamine out and about, I've also figured out what my team will look like SwSh, though I wish the game had more grass and water types to choose from since I normally have one of each on my team. This is likely the first game where I'm going without a Grass/Fire/Water trio since I'm not too keen on the selection available out of the new mons. (That, and Appletun is Shield-exclusive, so)
If you like Appletun so much, then why aren't you going for Shield?
