Pokemonster topc begins anew
also reposting this. I'm curious on people's opinions


The more I think about, the less I think we're gonna get another Lycanroc.


Visually, Dawn and Dusk (The times of day) are every similar. For example, look at when the Lycanroc's use Shattered Storm Shards. How could you change Duskcanroc's sunset visually since a sun rise and sun set are very similar. Not saying that "Oh you can't make it different!" but more so Duskcanroc fills the void of that visual motif. Adding a Dawn form might be difficult to make it distinct.


Back before Duskanroc's reveal, SM's in-game data had files for 3 Lycanroc forms, not 4. I know they can add another, but why have the third and not the fourth?


Duskcanroc is likely this Gen's Lucario, with it being heavily promoted, even Ash having one in the anime. It's clear this is going to be the prime Lycanroc form. Introducing a 4th form would be too much and might not be able to find it's own identity.


Duskcanroc get's both Accelerock AND Counter. Yes, you could give G=Dawn it's own signature move, but it'd still be inferior since it likely wouldn't get Accerlerock and Counter.


I'd like another Lycanroc, but I feel like there's no need for another form.


Not to mention, as EZ said in the old topic, Duskcanroc is called Twilight Lycanroc in Japan. Twilight is a term for both sunrise and sunset.

That you using this to disprove a Dawn Lycanroc makes no sense at all, it furthers the likelihood if anything

I do see your point, but I don't think that alone furthers the idea with that alone, as I have other points as well.

Literally just Dawn Wings Necrozma. Japan seems to use twilight to refer to dusk specifically (Dusk Lycanroc and now Dusk Mane Necrozma), which makes sense given things such as Twilight Princess.

Makes sense, surprised Solgaleo got the name change though.

I can think of another reason why I don't think we'll get one.


I feel like we'd know it by now and since when we get the special Rockruff, it evolves into Duskcanroc no matter which game version. If we got another form, wouldn't it make sense to make it version exlusive? Like, make it the "Dawn" form for the event Rockruff in UM, while it evolves into the Dusk form in US? Hopefully I explained that one well enough. Introducing another form that won't be revealed until after the game's release, despite it's counter part being such a big part of USUM's promo stuff feels weird and doesn't seem very Game Freak-y.

@HIHD about Lycanroc

tbfh I feel like Dusk has no identity of its own

I can only see it as Midday Form with Superior Form's mane

I'm not trying to bash it, I actually prefer Dusk to Midday Form, but it's an incredibly lazy cosmetic change and in an ideal world to me would have been the original Midday Form, it just isn't distinct enough (and changing its color is not a substitute to actually adjusting proportions, which Dusk does not do)

Also consider a potential Dawn form could just be secret for now and time-of-day dependent as IIRC they didn't mention Mega X or Y when we first saw Mega Mewtwo, they acted like it had one Mega, but I may be misremembering on that front

And on this subject can we get a Lucario equivalent that isn't another wolf/canine-type thing again thanks, I believe Gardevoir may fit the bill but that was four gens ago, and im struggling to remember one from gen 6 but to me it's Megacario (maybe it's actually Greninja? But that certainly wasn't the case until after he got popular already and I really feel Megacario was originally who they wanted to fit that bill given its significance in XY).

It's generally considered that Greninja ins Gen 6's Lucario.

And true, Mewtwo X wasn't revealed til after from my memory, but Mega Mewtwo Y wasn't event elusive like Duskanroc is.


Also, as for the poster, it also has two new characters.

That poster just makes me laugh because of the American Kirby is Hardcore! vibes it gives off. Like seriously... even ****ing nice guy Hau is pissed in it. I guess USUM is going to be a darker and edgier SM? Which none of the trailers have implied in the slightest so far, aside from Necrozma (who frankly only loses to Giratina as a living embodiment of "obviously evil").

That said, I'm still super sad it doesn't look like Colress will factor into the story. You have merging Pokémon, he should be involved in some way, damn it! <.<

The original series cap has always been my favourite, so I picked that one.

I found out the other day that the I Choose You movie will be showing at my local cinemas, so hopefully I'll be going to see it in November.

Rowlet: The shiny one, because sparkles. Also I really want to like Decidueye more.
Zorua: I'm gonna make this a tradtion: have a Zorua on my team whenever possible (even if I have to use Bank (unless Bank isn't available yet))
Rockruff: The event one. Duh.
Dewpider: I like this thing. Gen 7 has the best bugs overall
Stufful: I plan on catching a Jangmo-o later
Alolan Raichu: Surfboard Pikachu.

Plans change, so this might not be my final team.

looks like most of those new ones in USUM (dedenne, mareep, larvitar) appear on poni island, but from the backgrounds i think Tropius and Heracross appear early on in Mele-Mele, and Zorua in the trainer school.

Definitely gonna have a Heracross on my team.

Aww HELL NAW the new ones better not be confined to Poni unless they're switching island orders up on us. By that logic, if Riolu gets locked to the post-game again, I'm just trading one over from Sun because that was just a dick move, GB. <.<

emeraldzoroark Yellow Sparx Gems: 1838
#47 Posted: 22:39:02 22/09/2017
Well...
Tropius is in a grassy area, no idea where.
Larvesta is in a cave, so could be anywhere
Mareep is probably at the ranch
Larvitar is in a cave too
Zorua is at the Trainer School. No I don't regret the research.
Houndoom and Manectric look like they're at the ranch too, but it doesn't make much sense since we have to consider the level they evolve at.

Edit: Just occured to me that the TCG might hint at what new Pokémon will appear. For example, there's a Zoroark GX card despite it not appearing in Sun and Moon.

Some of the challenges look different. Hope Mina's isn't a post-game one and is actually a real trial part of the story. Really hope Kiawe's is fixed because god that one sucked. Seems they might be trying to fix up the game and make it actually good this time. I'll still wait until it's out and I can see what all's changed before I think about getting it. Considering it's only been a year since SM came out, I somewhat question if they held back to have stuff to add in USUM which could be part of why SM feels so lackluster.

Surfing between islands sounds nice, and wave tricks is fine, but the point stuff with it makes it feel really gimmicky and why.
