    The "extreme evoboost" looks really awesome, but I still thinking that the "z-move dancing" is really odd.
    Didn't like the new Pokémon, even their abilities looks useful.
    And, looks like we'll have a improve character customization, which is good, I guess.

    EDIT: How the hell is Pikipek eating that? That fruit(?) is almost bigger than its head. xD

    I like Oranguru's move Instruct because I'm thinking about the combo Mega Kangaskhan that attack 2 time and this move asd
    (but for now it's impossibile because the Megas aren't confirmed ;_;)
    Anyway, I think we will see him often in the competitive (or not? :suspect:)

    Maybe Pikipek has a new ability to eat things much bigger than him?? :coffee:

    So we got our Rugby Monkey! Meaning those Chinese leaks are real! Beyond a doubt at this point!
    We also got Harambe! Let the memes begin!!!

    Oranguru's attack is going to be a pain!!! Definitely a Tank Pokemon!
    Passimian has an interesting ability!

    I really like the two new primates!!! They have a good design and concept XD
    Their abilities and moves could be really useful in competitive battle too! Can't wait to see them in the game!
    Though neither is a gorilla, it seems like some people will see this as a compromise for a "Harambe" Pokemon haha

    We finally have the Rockruff evo's name! Lycanrock!!!!!
    Judging by the sand rush ability and priority accelerock move, it seems Midday form might be more used in battle.
    I can't believe they had to point out that the midnight form learns counter...as if that's anything special...:(
    I hope Midnight form has something special too XD

    Finally, the Z-moves are kinda bothering me. Catastropika and the other attacking Z-moves seem too OP. I don't know how strong they are, but they seem to require no strategy to use. It's just raw power...which is something I don't like to see in Pokemon games :( I hope there's going to be something special about those too. On the other hand, will any of eevee's evolutions get to use eevee's z-move? Or is it only for Eevee?

    Customization is improving in Sun and Moon, which was pretty inevitable

    We get to groom Pokemon in Pokemon refresh, which means it should be a replacement for Amie.

    Same for me when they showed him in CoroCoro... but maybe he will have better stats...

    First, you can use only one Z Move for battle, so it's not that powerful because it's only one time :coffee: I think that the Megas were much more powerful because even if you can have only one Mega, they last for the entire battle :coffee2:
    As for Eevee's Z Move, it's exclusive for him, so his eeveelutions can't use that Z Move (it's the same when they revealed Snorlax Z Move, you need to evolce Munchlax to Snorlax before using the move)

    I'm happy that this feature returned and is improved :sbav: I really love to create my own character!! (And this time... no hat!!!!)

    They're going to be a pain to battle that's for sure! It is cool that they're adding more Double Battle abilities. All he is, is Harambe Sage Mode!

    Like the name Lycanrock gives me ideas for good nicknames! I think they only pointed out because it corresponds with his Dex description.

    I it is only Eevee that gets to use it.

    I can't wait to see all the possible customization available!!! I really hope there's a long hair for guys not just the girls...Pretty cool that you can also change the colors of the shirts and pants via dyes!

    They confirmed that it's replacing Amie.

    Does that mean that they're trying to get Eevee to be used in compitetive battle...? Then does that mean the evolved forms will have different z-moves? It's kinda confusing how they gave signature moves to non-fully-evolved Pokemon...

    Oh and what part of its description matches lycanrock's name?

    Oh I meant the Mignight learning Counter part.
    It purposely taunts the opponent so it'll make the first move so he can Counter.

    If Z-moves can be used only once per battle, can you block it with protect? That would be a waste...but if it can't be blocked, it's too overpowered..
    And if a Z-move is too powerful, that probably means that you're getting a free KO once per battle...somehow I think that's wrong :(

    Well, the World Championship is always 2 vs 2 so I think that it's normal to add more moves for the competitive :yeahyeah:

    I think that they don't want to give Alolan/Mega forms to some Pokémon so they simply added a special Z Move and nothing more.
    Well, in the little cup Eevee will be uber for sure thanks to this move XD (but I don't know if someone will add him for a real competition :suspect:)

    Oh so I guess the featured move is connected to its description. I still hope it'll get a new move like Midday form too though..

    For now... we don't know... :cry::cry:
    But... many Pokémon can 1HKO others so a Z Move isn't that surprising... and, in the trailer we don't know Pikachu's level... maybe he is overlevelled XD
