• 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.

    For more information, see this thread

Does anyone know if Lillie is really in the Battle Tree?
Just wanted to know from a story maker's perspective...I want to be able to make any all reasonable chnages that I can till I play the game myself.

Any and all help will be appreciated....even if she only has a Clefable and only that I am ok with hearing that as well.

Can you get more than one Poipole? I know there are 2 stakatakas so you can trade but if I want a Poipole and a Nagandela... Is that possible without trading?

She's there as a starting partner. You won't be able to battle against her at the tree, but you can pair up with her for multi-battle challenges. She uses Ribombee and Comfey.

Nope, just the one Poipole sadly.

I could be wrong, but I don't think that USUM reference any old characters aside from the villains and the characters that already got their dues in SM. The only surprising references are to the GS Ball and Sevii Islands, but they're very basic.

Interestingly, if each of Naganadel's stats were increased by 6, its stats would not only all be prime numbers, but its BST would have been 570...

I wonder what caused Game Freak to do/ignore such a thing. Perhaps it can be rectified in Generation 8.

I just checked, and it seems like it does have one non-prime number stat: its Speed of 121. I would say this is either an oversight that Game Freak didn't think enough of to correct it, or it was done deliberately for reason I will explain in the story spoiler below:

Poipole and its evolution seem to be popular in Ultra Megalopolis. Perhaps Naganadel's Speed stat was supposed to symbolize it not being viewed as some sort of abomination in that world, but rather something the populace of Ultra Megalopolis has come to accept as part of their everyday lives. They caught up to speed with that Ultra Beast, so to speak.

Regardless of the reason, what @Alola pointed out and/or my possible explanation for this, that one Speed stat of Naganadel not being a prime number in contrast to all the other UBs is a very interesting piece of trivia.

Dragalge (UM) / Clawitzer (US), and Golurk (US) seem to be more version exclusives.

I'm not sure what is paired with Golurk, it seems like it could be either Baltoy or Bisharp.
Decision is made. Ultra Sun it is then. I will have one of my kids with me! (And I'm hoping it's Bisharp that's paired with Golurk; I do ship those two. Do not ask.)

ok, we need probably wait o gen4 remakes or to gen 8 or 9 hopefully, earlier then later.

Hope they dont forget Water Compaction(let it half water damage too and rise both stats +1 by water move), like they did Heatproof(half fire and buff both stats by +1 by fire move), that one also would need a buff in rising stats.
