Well I have basically beaten the game now. Main story is beaten, post-game mini arc is complete, and all legendaries have been captured (and in freaking premier balls because I hate myself). All I need to do now is evolve some Pokémon that will be added to my Living Dex once January rolls around. Well that and my Moon playthrough for a few legendaries.
Game was great, looking forward to seeing what they have planned for the region (as there are more than a few clues that they are not done in Alola yet).
I wonder if there's an Alolan Flabebe line, what with Hawaii having cool tropical flowers.
Man, when I played Y, Flabebe, Floette, and Florges broke the game for me. It was a pure fairy type, but it learned a bunch of powerful grass moves, so having a pokemon with a good grass movepool with none of the grass type weaknesses meant that I actually shelved my Bulbasaur, who was going to be a cornerstone of my Torchic, Froakie, Bulbasaur A-team. Oh, and I pretty much took out Y's Elite 4 with Florges alone.
Nope. Only Pokémon that got new forms in this game are the ones with Alolan forms (which are all Gen 1), ones with anime tie ins (Greninja and Zyg...w/e), and Pikachu (but those aren't released yet and I'm stretching by calling it a new form).
I've heard that Cutiefly and its evolution are beasts this game though and they are Fairy/Insect. I plan on including it on my team for my Moon playthrough.
