I kinda hate to do this so soon after just choosing my type, but after testing it out in PO, can I change to Dark? I prefer it over fighting.

Hey everyone :D sorry that i haven't been on in a while, boarding school over here gives us our own laptops and of course there's quite a bit of restrictions IT puts on them ._. But thank Jesus there's safe mode and VPNs! Just know that im still here and I can at least get on PU, but i cant install PO, sucks. I can manage to keep up to date though with any EE related news that goes on. I can get on PO on the 23rd, as that is when home leave is. But as for everything discussed so far, i like it. And by any chance do we still plan on having that tourney that we talked about a while back? I dont think i saw anything saying we werent gonna have it, so im assuming it's still going to happen sometime soon, correct?

Well the games have been out for a few days. I saw some on Serebii.net, and I really like how Froakie turns out. I also like how they're all part fighting/psychic/dark as well as grass/fire/water. I think I'm going to get it, but I'd need to buy a new handheld system to play it on. Unless the WiiU can play handheld games or something.

I might try to make sure the PU simulator is working and build up a non mono team to try out.

The balance server is up and working fine. In a few weeks I'll be updating it with the new pokemon and then balancing will start. The balance team has a lot of work ahead of them because new and old pokes will need to be balanced.

Fun fact: Some pokemon have 4 abilities now. :D
Example? Scolipede now has speed boost.

Just what I needed right? Another speed boost bug type.

ANOTHER bug type with speed boost? Whatever.

Gen 6 has given us quite the weird looking new rock/water type. Also the evolution of that pistol shrimp get an enormous claw.

There seem to be several new type combinations we haven't seen before (not counting fairy), which is cool. I don't yet know what fairy's resistances and weaknesses are.

The new type chart can be seen here:
http://www.serebii.net/xy/typechart.shtml

And yeah there are lots of new combos. poison/dragon fighting/flying to name just 2.
Serebii also just announced this: '"Just been informed of a discovery where classic Pokémon stats have been altered slightly. We're still currently calculating base stats for the Kalos Pokémon, but when done we will be on top of this"

Could there be a small balance in the works at gamefreak? :O

I see they didn't choose dark to be super effective against fairy types, though poison and steel are. I figure steel because fairy tails often happen in forests, or in a time before technology. Poison is often considered an evil force in stories, so that makes sense. Fairy type is actually resistant and super effective against dark, as well as dragons. Also fighting, because magical utopias are often peaceful.

Yeah, it just doesn't make much sense to me.

Gamefreak never makes much sense though. Cause take steel resisting dragon...thats just stupid. In all old fairy tales you never read of a plain ol knight beating a dragon. They always had some type of magical item with them. Be it a magical sword that was forged in a dragons fire or a shield that was able to withstand the dragons fire, or some kind of magical artifact.

Yes, though as of right now I don't know how much they will be nerfed or if they will even be nerfed at all.

Some of the mega evos are too strong and will have to be nerfed.I heard a lot of pokemons are getting new abilities.will starters get new abilities too?Wouldn't it be unfair that some pokemon have 4 abitities and starters have only 2.

Some of the mega evos are too strong and will have to be nerfed.

I wouldn't go as far to say that yet.
So far, every single mega pokemon that has been tested is actually partly weaker then it's normal form.

Example:
Mewtwo with life orb does more damage then mega mewtwo.
because mega pokemon can't hold items because they are already holding the mega stone.

So in our example, normal mewtwo hits harder but is not as bulky or as fast as mega mewtwo.

Therefore we can't tell at this time whether or not megas will be nerfed.

just have one thing to say Roloc, Lucario+Adaptability+Power up Punch+Bullet Punch+Close Combat+Shadow Claw (for those pesky ghosts)= total destruction. Might need to be looked at.
