If we're factoring in dodging, why can't Raichu just flee from Palossand beforehand?
Because there's only so much fleeing & dodging it could do; Especially when surrounded by sand where any pile of sand could be part of Palossand; and even if Raichu could figure out where Palossand is; it could run out of stamina & endurance from so much dodging and Palossand could also catch up to raichu trying to flee. . . it'd still end up as Sand Castle food. . . While Alola Raichu could just float away from it on its tail. . . and out of that Sand Castle ghost's reach too like over water; or far away from the beach. . .If we're factoring in dodging, why can't Raichu just flee from Palossand beforehand?
There's ONLY So Many Shadow Balls it can use before using up all its PP on that move. . . and running out of stamina & Endurance. . .But if there's only so much fleeing and dodging it can do, wouldn't that also be a problem with Palossand launching too many Shadow Balls at it?
TechSkylander never said regional variants sucked.so stop trying to argue your point that Alola Forms AND regional varients as a whole suck; Because they DON'T.
Psychic is a really poor choice compared to something actually super effective against Ground types.No It doesn't. and I Disagree. . .

Armored Mewtwo is (almost) confirmed to be in the game already. They found a trademark that applies for videogames.Yes, regional variance should become a mainstay imo, but my heart tells me that it won't. GF is always introducing cool new gimmicks like this only to drop it next gen so they can hype it up for the future remakes (cf: contests).
However, the idea of giving old Pokemon new forms is as old as Pokemon itself, so whilst I don't think we'll see Galar regional variants, I do think we will see new forms of old Pokemon in the Galar region that is related to whatever Gen 8's gimmick is e.g. Arcanine "Armoured Form", Mewtwo "Armoured Form", etc.
Well, regional variance was first shown on the Orange Islands arc, which is why people started asking for them in the first place, although if I recall correctly the fans thought at the time they would only be simple palette swaps. Now that I think about it, I wonder if the anime had the power it has now at that time the regional variants would have appeared in the games earlier.I just started watching the Sun & Moon anime a few weeks ago, and I noticed in the episode I watched yesterday, Ash teased the idea of regional variance occuring in other regions. So maybe I was wrong and there will be Galar regional variants ...
I Sure hope so. . . Why ELSE would they be called regional varients if they weren't gonna be in future regions? If they really WERE planning on ditching them after alola; they should've justed called them alola forms. . .I just started watching the Sun & Moon anime a few weeks ago, and I noticed in the episode I watched yesterday, Ash teased the idea of regional variance occuring in other regions.
