Yes! I've been wondering why Electric Pokemon can get paralyzed for so long, especially when Poison Pokemon can't get Poisoned.

I'm much more excited about these new mechanics than the English names. The female Pyroar does look pretty cool, though. The new games seem to be focusing more on gender differences so far. I'm excited. :)

Nice, very nice indeed. The names really fit the bill. And I love the new mechanics. Why should Electric-types get paralyzed? And Ghost-types being able to avoid moves like Mean Look makes a lot of sense, since ghosts by nature can just phase in and out at will. And it makes sense that Grass-types should be immune to their own spores and powders.

Lookin' very good, GF. You've done an excellent job so far. I can't think of one thing that was a mistake so far.

Meh, I don't think Electric types should be immune to paralysis. It's not like paralysis is an electricity thing, it's just often associated with it. Body Slam, DragonBreath, etc. can cause it too.

Because you can still break its back with Body Slam. If anything, they should have just made it so that they can't be paralyzed by Thunderwave.

It's going to be interesting in the competitive battles being affected by this. I wonder if Foresight will negate the ghost type's immunity to moves like Mean Look.

On a note about customization of the player characters, I personally hope a tophat is will be available to wear.

Ooh, I was hoping the female Pyroar would have a big gender difference and she does! :D And she's beautiful too!

I want to catch both a male and female Litleo and nickname them Kovu and Kiara. Any Disney fan should know why. lol

I also love that blue style Furfrou. I want one of those too! I misread the name as Frufru at first lol. I was like "lol this thing has the same name as the horse from The Aristocats?" XD
