Galarian Zigzagoon, Linoone and Obstagoon all look like they belong in KISS, oh my goodness. I might have to make room for one on my team...
Marnie is so beautiful ♥_♥ #GalarGirlsAreGoals
Is she going to be a more "edgy" rival, like Gladion? I'd be down with that - I can't think of any female rivals who've fit that character type so far. I love her stoic expression. :D
Dude, I think the Galarian forms might be my favorite things in Gen 6 so far. Galarian Weezing is PERFECT for a British region, and as I understand it, badgers are quite a thing over there (see: Hufflepuff, Helga). So taking the badger(ish?) pokemon they have and sprucing it up for the new gen is just a slam dunk to me.
I also think that cross gen evos never quite worked as well as we wanted them to. Gen 2 had some good ones, but Gen 4 went way too far for my tastes, and I think a lot of people's tastes. I think giving regional variants and then giving THEM new Evos makes a TON of sense. I think you get the nostalgia for the old pokemon, but you don't make people feel like the old things they like are ruined if they aren't into the new evo. And if they are, hey, all the better.
The Galarian froms look really cool! Although I think Poison/Steel would've been better for Galarian Weezing. And Linoone doesn't just get a Galarian form, but also an evolution! I'm really happy we're getting new evolutions for old Pokemon again!
Is Morpeko our new Pikaclone? They better give it good stats!
The two new rivals intrigue me. I have a feeling at least one of them will be competitive.
This seems hilariously unfair to the UK. I feel like most evil teams are far enough removed from the real world region, but this is just a poke in the eye.
I actually like the fact that they're tying the evil team's theme in with the sport style Gyms, that's kinda cool. But yeah... I think Team Yell will rise right to the top of the list of evil teams I can't take seriously, haha.
The new pikaclone has to be the worst one yet, lol. That aside, I'm glad the leak about Galarian forms was true. Zigzagoon looks pretty great, and it's even given an evolution which is something we haven't seen since Gen 4.
Smug rival reminds of someone that I can't put my finger on, but he gets points for having a Duosion.
I wasn't sure about black/white Zigzagoon and Linoone at first, but when I saw them in the trailer I have to say I like them. Plus there is new evolution for the old Pokémon (that isn't Eevee), which is one of the few things on my wishlist for a while.
Bipolar Pikachu looks like fun to use and I would consider one on my team. As for the rivals I think they are pretty standard. One seems to be bratty arogant archetype and another female Gladion. The team is disappointing. I wish we could return to teams that are actual thread instead of comic reliefs. But the idea behind this team is great.
I'm not quite... a fan of Galarian Zigzagoon/Linoone yet, but at least they get Obstagoon as a new evolution, so maybe I might need some time to getting used to it. And is it just me, but Marnie seems to give some mysterious vibe?
So that leak awhile back about Team Yell, Marnie, Bede, and Galarian Formes was real...
Also, LMFAO, the memes this time around for all the new Pokémon are wild.
Morpeko is already being Snicker memed to death, I'm loving it. I also really like Zigzagoon's new forme and final evolution! Neato! Also, maybe this means we really are getting a Farfetch'd regional evolution that was rumored a really, really long time ago? I hope so.
