Community Question Edit

What Pokemon needs to be able to learn a move that it can't learn, or vice versa?

  • Michael Barryte: If it's in the air, it should be able to learn Fly. Make Cut an item instead of a move.
  • Jimmy: Ferrothorn and Ferroseed can't learn Rapid Spin.
  • Alex: Togekiss shouldn't have Thunder Wave.
  • Kellie (delivered by Jimmy): Flareon can't learn Flare Blitz.

Fanswers Edit

 Email 1 (Dakota) Edit

Slaking Mega Evolution with a different Ability, such as No Guard, without much change in stats and an added fighting type. Design is a cross between a ground sloth and King Kong.

Email 2 (Jose) Edit

Pidgeot with a Attack and Speed boost, Fairy and Flying type, with Pixilate, to turn it into a physical sweeper.

Email 3 (John) Edit

Any funny nicknames for Pokemon?

  • Jimmy: It takes way too long to name the Pokemon. It took him 2 hours to come up with the name "Kickstarter" for a Hitmonlee. In X/Y he just named stuff randomly. Ex. Charles for a Talonflame.
  • Michael: In Diamond, he named them literally, such as "Rose Girl". "Electro Mouse" for a Pikachu.
  • Michael's brother: Nickname Pokemon other Pokemon's names.
  • Alex: Doesn't nickname them much. When he does, it's a person's name that he thinks "captures the essence of what they are".

Multiple saves and branching paths could be a good game mechanic. He trains using a Lv. 100 Volcarona in Triple Battles.

Email 5 (Seth) Edit

Mega Ludicolo with an ability "Strong Hold" that makes all Pokemon that make physical contact unable to move next turn, with a 40% chance to paralyze. Stats would be boosted in Special Attack and slightly in all others. He would look like a king with a "cape" and crown. They think the ability should be either one or the other.

Email 6 (Paul from California) Edit

Mega Crobat. Michael goes slightly insane over a Batman Beyond Crobat. Question: What is a Pokemon you forget exists?

  • Alex: Quilfish or Lumineon
  • Michael: He doesn't know the names.
  • Jimmy: Staraptor line, Misdreavus

Email 7 (Sarah) Edit

All of the starters get Megas, especially Mega Feraligatr with more Special stats. Question: What do you think makes a Pokemon deserve a Mega?

  • Jimmy: Pokemon he'd forgotten about that could use a boost in battle.
  • Alex: Fan service, cool Pokemon designs that should get more exposure.
  • Michael: Arcanine should have a Fire/Fairy mega, Pokemon with no evolutions.
