Confirmed no held items and no abilities.

IV’s are in the game but no one knows how they work exactly

XP is weighted towards capturing not battling

There is a combo system of catching the same Pokemon multiple times in a row

Seems like bullshit. Every time I see something about the game that I like more information breaks that makes me sigh

Zeraora being released on 1st October, but will probably have to go to a retailer?

That’s dumb especially as all the other legendary’s released throughout the year have been obtainable through download

Man, new Pokemon are appearing in Pokemon Go before the traditional games?

So Zerora, Mega Latios, Latios and Bisharp all fell down from OU (Premier League) to UU (Championship?)*

This is one of the big problems with SUMO multiplayer. No matter the generation you are always going to have Pokemon that are better than others and therefore become more popular therefore used more. But if you look at gen 6 OU and Gen 7 OU basically all the Pokemon fell out of it because no one cuts the mustard anymore. Which makes OU very boring. The other side is it has made Gen7 UU very good because it is basically Gen 6 OU with some added Pokemon.

This happened for two reasons. Firstly a lot of the new Pokemon in SUMO just weren’t very good and a lot of them ended up either in or even lower than UU. Because they didn’t effectively ‘shake up’ the meta this meant OU in the beginning was largely the same (And that in it’s current state had been around for 2 years so there was already fatigue).

There were also some early bans on things that were too powerful and like I said early drops of new Pokemon that just weren’t powerful enough. However the Pokemon that were ‘just right’ are so devastating they wiped a lot of the old competition away with nothing to replace them. And the existing Pokemon that did survive the culling and remained in OU only became more integral to the meta. Landorus-T must be the only Pokemon that actually gets better with every generation. It can do everything!

Also the problem with a lack of diversity in Pokemon leads into a lack of diversity in sets. I can’t speak to the current meta that well because I’m not playing it, but even watching I can look at a team and go “Well this will probably run these moves, and this will whatever”. And why wouldn’t it stick to the tried and true when there is nothing to force change? Things just go away to lower tiers not up, it seems.

With at least another year of SUMO (Because I very much doubt Let’s Go games will pick up steam in the competitive scene) the battle scene will die of death, I think. They need to get it right next time. You had fatigue come over from last gen, with what will at least total 3 years of this gen, it’s just dull. I never want to see a Toxapex or Celesteela ever again.

I can’t figure out how to share a video that starts at a specific time stamp but if you want to see something quite funny skip to 15:06

I don't know why that is funny but I do know how to do time-specific links.
