In both meanings of the word at that! I had you guys predict what would be its event move, and nobody got it right. Yep, they went with Mega Kick as a tie-in with the upcoming FIFA World Cup. MEGA FUCKING KICK. As a reminder, Return just beats it in every conceivable way, since after six gens Mega Kick is STILL Normal for some reason. Not to mention, it could already learn Mega Kick to start with... but that was with a gen 3 tutor, so I guess it did make it legal with Lightningrod, if you care enough about that. Too bad that event doesn't come with Volt Tackle, so Lightningrod + Mega Kick + Volt Tackle is still illegal. Same for other moves that are actually used on Pikachu, such as Iron Tail, Fake Out and Knock Off.
But really, think of this as another opportunity wasted. If they wanted to make a World Cup tie-in, why the hell not Blaze Kick or High Jump Kick? Do they think Pikachu is already some kind of juggernaut thanks to all those fabulous events it's gotten over the years? Why did they botch it so bad?
