The game’s only been out for a few days, but here’s the ones we’re most excited to get our hands on for one reason or another.
Been waiting for a prettier butterfly for a while now. Vivillon proves that my patience has paid off.
Friend got a really annoying Fire/Flying Charizard? Teach them a horrible, horrible lesson with a Rock/Dragon Tyrantrum. Unless you got X. Then, uh, well. Sorry.
Trevenant is a haunted tree. I’m not sure how much more you could possible ask for from a Pokemon.
Swirlix is literally a living cotton candy that can murder dragons.
Pangoro is a Fighting/Dark Panda with a trenchcoat made of fur. I just. I can’t. I’m not.
Malamar is a Dark/Psychic squid. Except its body shape is an upside down squid with a birdlike beak. It just looks so goofy I can’t help but know I’ll include it in my final team.
Goofy appearance aside, Flabebe’s Fairy type and special move that keeps Grass pokemon from having lowered stats make it a huge boon for anyone that chooses Bulbasaur or Chespin. Speaking of Chespin…
Chesnaught – Chespin’s final evolution – is for everyone who ever wanted a little Gears of War in their Pokemon.
