Cue the inevitable Robin Hoot joke. Oh, wait, this very post is exactly that just by saying the first sentence. :P


So, Shiny-locked Pokémon. An annoyance, right? You don't get to obtain a cool shiny red Solgaleo or whatever.
The Island Guardians (the four Tapu Pokémon), the Cosmog line, all of the Ultra Beasts, and Necrozma are all coded to not appear Shiny. As such, Shiny variants of those Pokémon will likely be available either as event Pokémon, or in a future game.
There are seven Island Trials, but only six Trial Captains have created Trials: Ilima, Kiawe, Lana, Mallow, Sophocles and Acerola. The seventh Trial Captain is Mina, but she hasn't created a Trial yet.

It seems you have a Trainer Passport.

There is a seventh trial, alright. It's just not created by her.

Hyper Training alters the IVs, but said alteration applies only in battle, remaining unchanged for other purposes?

Weak Armor raises the Speed stat by two stages now.
Prankster will fail when its user uses a priority move targeting a Dark-type opponent; that move will still work on allied Dark-types.
Gale Wings will now only activate if the Pokémon is at full HP (100%).
Parental Bond's second hit deals 25% of the first hit's damage (from 50%).

Apparently, Professor Kukui's wife is a character introduced a few Generations back: Professor Burnet.

The XP system from the Unova games are used here again.

A possible Poké Finder comment? "7.8/10 Too much water."

The very first Youngster met in the game - a random NPC, basically, who serves as your first opponent (or so I read)? Apparently, he is one of the Trainers who can challenge you as Alola's champion.

Lillie and Gladion are the children of Lusamine?

Multitype changes type based on the held Plate, right?

Well, now it looks like the held Z-Crystal also changes the type of a Pokémon with Multitype. That's another advantage over Silvally then.

(I blame the "Rainbow Dragon Eater".)

Makes sense.

Okay, then, Grass-type Arceus. Use Bloom Doom!

She won't be bringing any doom for… no idea how long. With her kitten having been killed in front of her several weeks ago, and Dia in a coma…

But that's going off the rails for this thread.
Going by Serebii here…

Litten (and its evolutions) are the only Alolan Starter Pokémon to not have a new Ability as a Hidden Ability (Rowlet line gets Long Reach, Popplio line gets Liquid Voice). Instead, they get Intimidate.

Zygarde has five Cores and 95 Cells, it seems.

Gible, Beldum, Goomy and Trapinch lines aren't version exclusives.

You get an Eevee egg, a Porygon, an Aerodactyl, and a Type: Null at various points in the story (as gifts).
Absol, go beyond the bonds of evolution! Mega Evolve!

Apparently, Global Link artwork of all the new Pokémon have appeared, except for a few:

After Alolan Raticate, is a missing image (020-02).
After Mimikyu, there are two missing images (778-02 and 778-03).
After Magearna, there are two more missing images (801-01 and 802-00).

The numbers seem to correspond to their National Pokédex numbers.

Evolution Moves. Those are how Solgaleo learns Sunsteel Strike and how Lunala learns Moongeist Beam. And how Silvally learns Multi-Attack, and a way for Alolan Raichu to learn Psychic. (Not sidekick.)
Except, it seems to be bugged?
Kadabra learns Confusion at level 16, yet due to the Evolution Moves, it tries to learn Kinesis instead.

We finally get an Ice Stone, and only two Pokémon evolve with it. -.-

The Strange Souvenir depicts a mysterious "guardian deity" Pokémon. Doesn't look like a Tapu to me.

Legendary Orbs are purchased. The horror.

Pikachu can only be found in the wild through SOS battles. Noooooooooo. (Sarcastic Michelle is sarcastic without being a cat.)

Greninja's base stats: HP 72 / Attack 95 / Defense 67 / Sp. Atk 103 / Sp. Def 71 / Speed 122
Ash-Greninja's base stats: HP 72 / Attack 145 / Defense 67 / Sp. Atk 153 / Sp. Def 71 / Speed 132

That's a 110 BST increase (from 530 to 640).

Makes me wonder about Ash-Pikachu (seeing as Ash's Pikachu beat a Tyranitar and a Metagross).

Zygarde has multiple forms, of course. Their base stats:
10%: HP 54 / Attack 100 / Defense 71 / Sp. Atk 61 / Sp. Def 85 / Speed 115
50%: HP 108 / Attack 100 / Defense 121 / Sp. Atk 81 / Sp. Def 95 / Speed 95
100%: HP 216 / Attack 100 / Defense 121 / Sp. Atk 91 / Sp. Def 95 / Speed 85

It goes from a 486 BST Pokémon to a 600 BST Pokémon, and goes from that to a 708 BST Pokémon (based on stats).

Then, there's Wishiwashi. A wishy-washy Pokémon, right?

Solo Form: HP 45 / Attack 20 / Defense 20 / Sp. Atk 25 / Sp. Def 25 / Speed 40
School Form: HP 45 / Attack 140 / Defense 130 / Sp. Atk 140 / Sp. Def 135 / Speed 30

From 175 BST to 620 BST. That's a higher BST than several Legendary Pokémon, including the Island Guardians who all have a BST of 570. I'm amazed.
And now, for even more things that amaze me.

By the top highest base stats:
Top 5 for HP: Blissey (255), Chansey (230), Guzzlord (223), Zygarde Complete Forme (216) and Wobbuffet (190).
Top 4 for Attack: Mega Mewtwo X (190), Mega Heracross (185), Kartana (181), Mega Rayquaza, Primal Groudon and Deoxys Attack Forme (180).
Top 2 for Defense: Mega Aggron, Mega Steelix, Shuckle (230), Regirock and Steelix (200).
Top 4 for Sp. Atk: Mega Mewtwo Y (194), Mega Rayquaza, Primal Kyogre and Deoxys Attack Forme (180), Mega Alakazam (175) and Xurkitree (173).
Top 3 for Sp. Def: Shuckle (230), Regice (200), Primal Kyogre and Deoxys Defense Forme (160).
Top 3 for Speed: Deoxys Speed Forme (180), Ninjask (160) and Pheromosa (151).
Top 4 for base stat totals: Mega Mewtwo X, Mega Mewtwo Y and Mega Rayquaza (780), Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre (770), Arceus (720) and Zygarde Complete Forme (708).

I just realized "Xurkitree" sounds a bit like "circuitry".

(And a lot of the new Pokémon are slow compared to other Generations, or so I hear. :o )

Well hello what's this
Yokai Watch stuff can lead to other Pokémon!?
Or am I mistaken here?

Either way. That seems odd, but oh well…
"I'd rather sleep than do deliveries."

Do not anger the Snorlax. Or else it will pulverize you into a pancake. *yawn*
