Caught me a Taillow that knows Sky Attack right off the bat.

Honestly though, the DexNav was great. Lets you get Pokemon with special moves, lets you check their stats/nature, allows for shiny chaining. Why they ever bothered to remove it is beyond me.

But they didn’t. Then we got SOS battles. Don’t be surprised if that’s gone too. I’m sure they’ll add some sort of dumb gimmick similar to those, maybe it’s max raids this gen
it all comes together

I am all for DexNav coming back. It was one of the best things in ORAS.

Dexnav was soooo good! Gutted that it was replaced by that horrible SOS feature.

Yea, DexNav was by far the best mechanic they've come up with. I really enjoyed chaining encounters for hidden abilities and special moves. It was especially nice as something grindable to appeal to older players, and it would've been easy to iterate on for future gens. I very much missed it during UM.

Unfortunately they seem determined to make changes purely for the sake of changes and we'll probably never see it again.

Also, gotta acknowledge Chansey bases as the best leveling method ever. Secret bases in general were a pretty awesome idea. I got a Happy Hour/Pay Day Smeagle from a base someone set up years ago and just let sit around. Thanks, whoever you are.

Egg moves are only used for comp which is a shame since a lot of Pokémon learn some neat moves that are locked out by breeding

It was a great feature
