Yeah, nice balancing.

Also shout outs to Gengar. The last remaining Pokemon to be OU for every single game.
Is that Christ bullet ten-tapped?

Not if you're a Doubles player.

...I'm more worried about T-Tar + Excadrill.

After the affront to logic that was not including the sun and moon Pokemon in Pokemon Sun and Moon, it only makes sense they'd pardon their crime by adding the sword and shield Pokemon in Pokemon Sword and Shield.
Hello, I like video games and comedies. Let's be friends. :)

For every proper balancing move they made, there are some pretty stupid choices they kept out.

All dragon pseudos except Goodra and Hydreigon were cut. This is good for them, as they were just completely outclassed by Salamence and Latios/Latias.

Silvally might actually get a chance to shine this time. He has the makings of a contender. He just had no place in the game before due to other options.

Skarmory and Blissey are gone, but they left Ferrothorn. I woulda cut him too tbh

Zoroark was cut, but shadow taggers Gothitelle and Chandelure are left in. Completely backwards thinking on their part. Zoroark traps are skill based. Shadow Tag trapping is just easy mode kills.

Ferrothorn and Toxapex gonna ruin the game, mark my words.

Ferrothorn/Toxapex/Reuniclus will be a staple on every single team.

Chandelure doesnt have shadow tag. It only had it in gen 5 where its HA was unreleased anyways
