    Oh, now I get it. Makes sense. :)

    True, but a Pokemon like Scizor with a really high attack stat could break walls. Even if they're extremely bulky a good team partner will make things easier. I think you're right though, we should wait till we know the stats before we can judge how good they really are.

      First off, I LOVE Scizor and Malamar and I'm definitely having Malamar on my team, so this is just for discussion. Even though Scizor does have a x4 weakness to Fire, it also has 8 resistances, 1 super resistance, and 1 immunity. Malamar has a x4 weakness to Bug, and 1 immunity to Psychic. That's it :/ Everything else is neutral. I'm REALLY hoping Malamar makes up for this with awesome stats, but who can say?

        That's not official, but there is a rumor that we're getting another Mewtwo forme, which is said to resemble closely to Mew's design.

          Pangoro is so freakin' badass! Thank you Universe! My ferocious bear team is that much closer to becoming a reality!

          Not really that excited about the others, though. Team Flare looks really cool, and definitely French, haha! I think it is nice modern-day commentary.....

          But the rumor states that the one that resembles Mew is the one from the latest movie, while the second unknown looks more like Mewtwo's original forme. That's some pretty nice and accurate looking artwork though, I like it. The second one would make for a cool new Mew forme, if it had one.

          Geomancy basically means "Earth Divination". Think occult astrological divination - 'seeing' stuff. Magic, basically. Xerneas is basically a seer tapping into natural earth energies, I guess. That's the best way of putting it.

          And oy, Mew having a forme too. -_-

            That sounds like a move which would need some charging in order to gather the magic from the earth and turn it into a power array of beams of light.

              Agreed. Seems like a two-turn move.

              I also get the feeling that it's a special attack by the way you described it.

              Also no thank you @ new Mew forme. :x A second Mewtwo forme is currently just speculation, right?

              As for what Geomancy's effects are, all we really know is that it's a damaging move. Other than that, we got nothing (so stuff like two turns, recharge, etc. are all unknown).

              I don't really understand why everyone things Oorotto is a Sudowoodo evolution. Honestly, from all the speculated images, other than looking like a tree, they don't have much in common. All of its leaves actually look like leaves, whereas Sudowoodo's/Bonsly's are just green spheres. It going from cute and derpy to so sinister just seem kind of radical to me as well.

                Pancham's evolution looks totally awesome. The squids are cute and unique. That pink bird and the white fluffy one is cute too.

                  I agree, I don't believe that Orotto/Oorotto/Aurotto will be a Sudowoodo evo. And his typing can be anything at this moment, honestly. Unless they show some moves he uses in battle we can only throw out what... 15 different possible combinations? There are his obvious typings, and then the pseudo typings, and both are very viable considering, as said before, the Inkay and Malamar being dark/psy when they are clearly squid which 95% of the people would assume has the water type somehow involved, but they threw a curveball and made them completely unique types -- and they can easily do the same to Orotto. I think we should just wait it out regarding him tbh.

                  Geomancy doesn't have known information. But from how it looks, I'd assume it's a one-turn high damage move like most of the legendaries have been getting lately. A signature move.

                    Geomancy = Fairy Earthquake?!?!? That, would be awesome. And it kind of does look like a wide-range move. That or a 2-turn charge move.

                    No wait, it's Xerneas' signature move, doubt it'd be a fairy-type earthquake.

                    Oh I do hope Xerneas doesn't have a charging signature move, I like my legends having usable signature moves thank you.

                    Indeed, it's only shown up in the rumors from Pokebeach, though there is a chance it's true considering a lot of those rumors turned out true. I'm kinda hoping it turns out to be true.

                      Well Roar of Time was a Dragon type hyperbeam so Geomancy could be a Fairy type Earthquake.

                      Well Fusion Flare and Fusion Bolt were essentially Fire and Electric Earthquakes respectively, so perhaps?

                        I just realized that Inkay's move Topsy Turvy is also a stage name(9-5) in the special world in Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D.

                          I knew it sounded familiar when I heard it...so that what it was.

                          I hope that Inkay's line has some powerful dark moves. Thus far we've seen it mostly use Psychic moves.

                            considering the amount of power the signature moves of xerneas and yveltal have, they can between those of hyper beam, overheat or earthquake kind, a skull bash/solarbeam kind don't sound like a good idea. I think there's also a possibilty that they can be like a sacred fire, aeroblast or magmastorm kind. I don't think they are going to make those moves like double-edge kind, if they do they will probably be the first double-edge special kind.

                              I really like Xerneas' typing.
                              It should be able to wreck a ton of other guys in Ubers do to it being immune to Dragon. Maybe they'll have to ban it or something!

                              Not exactly, since they don't hit your teammates or multiple foes. However what made Fusion Flare and Fusion Bolt unique was that one of the two moves hits harder when used after the other. I am hoping Geomancy is not a charging move like what François said. Although being a Hyper Beam variant won't hurt either. I want my beloved Xerneas to get a reliable signature move.

                                There's not much difference between it being a Ice burn or a Hyper Beam other than the fact that you have to survive a hit before hitting opposed to hitting first then surviving for the next attack.

                                Oblivion wing seems more special as it appears like Yvetal is healing after using the move. Hopefully Geomancy will have a secondary effect too.

                                  However... Panda's are extremely awesome and powerful so I understand the appeal which caused Game Freak to make this Pokemon. I quite like it, actually, but yeah, it does resemble the others to a point where you cannot appreciate the Panda Pokemon's greatness.

                                  Just under two weeks until the next "Scoop of the century" CoroCoro, although I have a feeling this is going to be an anti climactic "scoop"

Ever since Roar of Time, which was learned by Dialga in Gen 4 (along with Giga Impact), it seems to me that the introduction of new moves that require recharging has reduced itself to zilch (at least, I don't remember any moves that require you to recharge in Gen 5). Instead of wasting a completely good turn waiting to recharge, we have moves that lower your stats as a consequence, which is a much lesser evil as you at least have a turn to switch out and switch back in again, inflicting massive amounts of damage each time you do.

                                    See: Victini in UU, essentially.

                                    In any case, I do not believe that Geomancy nor Oblivion wing will not be moves that require a recharge, rather I think they will be moves that would have heavy secondary effects, or rather moves that would be similar in nature to V-Create, inflicting massive amounts of damage whilst lowering the user's stats significantly. Going by what has happened last generation, what with Kyurem-B and Kyurem-W suffering no negative ailments whatsoever as a result of using their own signature moves, I can safely assume that this might ring true for these legendaries as well, making them more powerful than they should be, but eh.
                                    Or you know, they could bring back the old Gen 1 mechanic of recharging moves skipping the recharging part after landing a successful KO, thus making Hyper Beam and other rechargable moves used more often back in the old Red/Blue days.
