• Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.
  • Hey guys! Have you heard? We now have popup
    Yes, Popups!
    messages for your forum posts. Learn more about it here!
  • Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
  • Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

A lot of characters don't have their aces for whatever reason. Maybe they plan on making Sygna suits with their aces instead? I'm mostly depressed about Bugsy getting Beedrill instead of Scyther/Scizor, myself.
They did what again?:lapras:

TIL Seel is only water-type, wow. :confused:

Even then, that thought goes moot already considering
Cynthia's Sygna Suit is based around Kommo'o instead of Garchomp.

So we can simply conclude that: DeNa just doesn't know what it's doing.

They don't have to be consistent about whether aces belong to default suits or Sygna suits. It's their game.

What really bothers me is that some gym leaders are currently stuck with unevolved Pokemon.

Meditite is just baaaad, which is a shame, because Gloves Off is great.

Using the excuse of 'it's their game' is not an excuse to be inconsistent with stuff like this.

I meant it more for those who didn't already get paired with their traditional ace. Normal Cynthia will still get Garchomp, obviously, and the sygna suit will be completely separate

Another idea I had is that perhaps they chose Pokemon based on whether or not we can get them to evolve? Voltorb, Papitoad, Surskit, Meditite, and Weepinbell can all evolve, but Raichu, Excadrill, Vivillon, Lucario (aside from being with Korrina)/Machamp and Gogoat can't. That way players spend a bit more coins on evolution stones. Of course, that doesn't fully work out either, given Beedrill was chosen over Scyther, and the fact that Piloswine can still evolve, just like Seel, among others. They also could have just given them earlier stages of the evolution lines too if they really wanted us to spend more. Not to mention that datamining shows Weepinbell and some starters have no Evolution Sync stories at all yet. Maybe they'll be added in future updates, maybe not, who knows?

No train of thought is going to consistently explain the Pokemon choices they made in this game so far, I just get a kick out of doing so anyway.

Meditite is just baaaad, which is a shame, because Gloves Off is great.
I used Meditite as a cheap 3-star support for most of the game since I didn't have anyone else to buff attack for a long while. No way she'll hold up in harder challenges, but for a casual F2P player like me, she wasn't completely awful. Hopefully it'll evolve soon and gain access to Mega Medicham or something.

Out of the evolutions, I'm looking forward to Medicham, Rampardos and Aurorus the most because their trainers are some of my favorites. I mean, I still didn't get Grant yet, but...

It really doesn't matter as long as the aces aren't ignored.
