Four new Pokémon have been revealed this month, and the one that's worth the most attention is Gogoat the mono-Grass Pokémon. Why? Two reasons. One, it gets Horn Leech, which was previously exclusive to Sawsbuck's line. Second, and more importantly, YOU CAN RIDE IT. Is riding Pokémon a replacement or complement to the bike? Do you need an HM? Does it hint at the end of HMs? Who knows? What I do know is, this is what'll get people talking until next month.
In other news, we have Yayakoma the Normal/Flying Japanese Robin (basic bird or something else entirely?), Yanchamu the Fighting-type panda (thus fulfilling one of the most popular species requests ever), and an Electric/Normal lizard whose name is currently illegible on the pictures we have so far (update: it's Elekiteru). Yes, Electric/Normal. Seems like they're doing an effort to give us more Normal dual-types.
Also, character customization is now a thing... but only hair color and skin shade. Not gonna do too much for those people who make the most generic wishlists ever. Also, is that a map of France? Well it wasn't exactly a well-kept secret, what with this whole Eiffel Tower thing. And finally, there's this picture of the female character riding a Gogoat right next to her artwork, and you know what? I have to look pretty hard to NOT see Roll Caskett there.
So, my opinion? I like what I'm seeing. The lizard could look a bit better, but oh well, can't get a 10 every time, right?
Edit: The lizard knows a new move that appears to be a Giga Drain clone, based on the description. If true, and more Pokémon get it (not unlikely at all), the choice vs. Thunderbolt could prove to be very interesting
Edit 2: The move Yanchamu is said to use appears to be a more support-oriented version of U-Turn, where instead of inflicting damage while switching out, it lowers an unknown stat instead. This gets more and more interesting!
