Gen VI metagame speculation in Competitive Battling Discussion Posted June 16, 2013 · Edited October 7, 2013 by Tbird The following post(s) contains spoilers. Read at your own descretion. As with the last generation, I started a thread that speculated as to how new additions would affect the Pokemon metagame. As the last thread received some good reception I thought I'd start the process all over again. At the moment there's not a huge deal known, however, with the bombshell of a new typing, a couple new pokemon and moves also thrown into the mix we can all start to make some fairly educated judgements. Also as there's more known, more can be speculated. In the spoiler below I'll update what we know of the new games (as far as is relevant) as and when the information comes. Feel free to use it as mini encyclopaedia of new information, if you will. I will be relying mainly on the information given from Serebii and Google. If you think anything else should be added, post with a reliable source. Up-to-date general information and fandom New Pokemon New moves So have at it, kids! As ever mods feel free to update/reformat this OP in however which way you feel right. As stated, the idea is to discuss and speculate on the information given. Try to stay away from saying things such as "I think _pokemon_ will learn _move_." But feel free to say things like "If _pokemon_ learned _move_ It could probably Work well as a _role_ because of _reason/Nature/Other known moves_" I know they seem similar but the latter better provokes discussion, and also provokes, at best, solid educated guesses.
