  2. I think the new ability that the most trainers will appreciate is Swirlix's Sweet Veil. I think every trainer's been thinking that kind of ability was needed a long time ago! :o

  3. "Bulletproof grants the Pokémon from the following Ball and Bomb moves"

    What exactly does it grant the Pokemon regarding this list of moves? Resistance? Immunity?

    Sorry for the typo! It apparently grants immunity to those attacks. ^^
     
  5. After playing the game & watching hundreds of Wifi battles, I feel that Protean is now the most popular ability introduced in Gen VI since nearly everyone and their Aunt Trixie has a Greninja with one. Plus, I have to say, from what I've seen a pokémon with Protean is practically unbeatable
     
  6. If you run a Goodra or Blissey, I believe you shouldn't have a problem with Greninja at all.


    In my opinion, Gale Wings is the most popular ability, since people are now forced to use a Rotom, Tyrantrum, Landorus-Therian, Tyrannitar, and other Pokemon on their team only to wall Gale Wings Talonflame.
     
  7. Gale wings would be overpowered for a flying pokemon...
