Pokémon GO - Community Note: GO Battle League preview, combat system update, legacy attacks!

Niantic has announced some more details on GO Battle League, upcoming changes to the combat system, attacks that some Pokémon will be able to learn in Pokémon GO for the first time, and some familiar attacks certain Pokémon will be able to learn which will be coming to the game in future updates.

Pokémon GO - Community Note: GO Battle League preview, combat system update, legacy attacks!

Trainers, In this special Community Note, we’re excited to share some more details on GO Battle League, upcoming changes to the combat system, attacks that some Pokémon will be able to learn in Pokémon GO for the first time, and some familiar attacks certain Pokémon will be able to learn once again! Let’s GO!

Leagues, seasons, ranks, rules, and more!
Pokémon GO Battle League will be a triathlon-style contest!

  • Battles will take place in all three leagues: Great League, Ultra League, and Master League. However, only one league will be available at a time, and they will all rotate throughout a season. This means that in order to be the best, you need to be able to win in all three formats!
  • As you win battles throughout the season, your rank will increase, even as GO Battle League rotates between leagues. You will start at Rank 1 and work your way up to the top rank, Rank 10. Once you reach a new rank, you cannot drop below it for the rest of the season. Higher ranks mean better rewards!
  • Once you reach Rank 10, measure against the best with your battle rating. Wins increase your battle rating, while losses will cause it to drop.
  • You cannot use two or more of the same species of Pokémon on your team.

As we get closer to the release of GO Battle League in early 2020, you can look forward to more information on how GO Battle League works.

Updates to the combat system
There are some exciting updates coming to the combat system.

  1. When two Pokémon use Charged Attacks at the same time, the Pokémon with the higher Attack stat will go first. If two Pokémon have the same Attack stat, a random Pokémon will go first. We want to ensure Charged Attack ties are broken fairly. Restrictions in Great and Ultra League currently put a focus on trying to get low-Attack Pokémon to maximize CP. While maximizing Defense and HP is a great strategy against most opponents, in close matchups, the Attack stat can now become a deciding factor. We hope this will help deepen team building!
  2. Switching Pokémon now clears any changes to its Attack and Defense stats. As more attacks are added to the game that affect Attack and Defense, we want to ensure these effects have clear counterplay opportunities. Debuffs should encourage players to switch Pokémon and buffs should make switching less appealing. There’s more to consider now when to use these attacks and when to switch Pokémon.
Updates to existing attacks in Pokémon GO
There have been updates to the following existing attacks in Pokémon GO.
  • Night Slash - Its energy requirement has been reduced in Trainer Battles, and it now has a chance to greatly increase the user’s Attack stat.
  • Icy Wind - This move now decreases your opponent’s Attack stat when used.
  • Hydro Cannon - Hydro Cannon now deals less damage in Trainer Battles. Community Day exclusive attacks are intended to be powerful, but Hydro Cannon was too strong.
  • Frustration and Return - They now take longer to charge in Trainer Battles and deal more damage. Since all Shadow Pokémon have access to Frustration and Return (through purifying), we wanted to make sure these attacks do not become too all-purpose.
  • Mud-Slap - Damage for Mud-Slap has been increased in Gyms, raids, and Trainer Battles.
  • Sand Tomb - When used in Trainer Battles, Sand Tomb now charges quickly, deals less damage, and decreases your opponent’s Defense by one stage.
  • Forretress, Torterra, Garchomp, and Gliscor can now learn Sand Tomb.
  • Earthquake - Its damage has been increased in Gyms and raids.
  • Overheat, Draco Meteor, and Psycho Boost - These attacks now charge up quicker in Trainer Battles, but they sharply decrease your own Pokémon’s Attack after use. Some damage values have been adjusted down to maintain balance.
  • Close Combat - This attack now charges up quicker in Trainer Battles, but it sharply decreases your own Pokémon’s Defense after use.

Attacks new to Pokémon GO
Certain Pokémon will soon be able to learn attacks that hadn’t yet been seen in Pokémon GO!
  • Octazooka - It’s a slower Charged Attack that may sharply reduce your opponent’s Attack.
  • Octazooka can be learned by Octillery and Kingdra.
  • Mirror Shot - It’s a quick Charged Attack that may also reduce your opponent’s Attack.
  • Mirror Shot can be learned by Forretress, Magnezone, Ferrothorn, and Klinklang.
  • Fell Stinger - It’s a quick Charged Attack that also increases your Attack after use.
  • Fell Stinger can be learned by Beedrill, Qwilfish, Vespiquen, and Drapion.
  • Aura Sphere - It’s a powerful Fighting-type attack.
  • Aura Sphere can be learned by Lucario.
  • Superpower - It’s a powerful Fighting-type attack that charges up quickly but reduces the user’s Attack and Defense after being used.
  • Superpower can be learned by Pinsir, Snorlax, Hariyama, Rhyperior, and Melmetal.

Pokémon that can learn more attacks
The following Pokémon will be able to learn attacks they couldn’t before.
  • Cloyster: Icy Wind - Cloyster is a defensive Pokémon, and gaining access to the newly improved Icy Wind will help it fill that role even better.
  • Feraligatr: Ice Fang - By focusing on its bite, Feraligatr can stand out a bit more from the other Water-type first partner Pokémon!
  • Porygon2 and Porygon-Z: Lock-On - Lock-On generates energy very quickly at the cost of dealing very little damage. Porygon2 and Porygon-Z both rely on slow but strong Charged Attacks. Lock-On should help improve their chances of using these attacks.
  • Celebi: Seed Bomb - Since Celebi is a Mythical Pokémon that has the Grass type, we wanted to make sure Celebi has access to a Grass-type attack.
  • Shiftry: Snarl - Access to both Razor Leaf and Snarl should let Shiftry pressure popular Ultra League Pokémon like Swampert and Giratina.
  • Kyogre: Surf - Currently Kyogre’s Charged Attacks are very slow. Surf will give it a faster charging option that matches its type.
  • Lickilicky: Shadow Ball - Lickilicky is great against Ghost types already, and Shadow Ball will help it even more.
  • Tangrowth: Power Whip - Tangrowth should be able to use its Grass-type Charged Attacks more frequently with this powerful move. Power Whip is also a great fit for a vine-covered Pokémon.
  • Heatran: Flamethrower - Flamethrower should allow Heatran to more effectively combat Pokémon that are weak to its types, like Venusaur and Registeel.
  • Stoutland: Ice Fang - Ice Fang will help Stoutland battle differently from other Normal-type Pokémon with Lick.

Pokémon that can learn old attacks once again
As part of the group of Pokémon to debut with Pokémon GO, some Pokémon originally discovered in Kanto have had their attacks change a lot over time! We’ll be adding back some of the stronger attacks a few of these Pokémon used to learn back in 2016 to make sure these attacks are accessible to players who have joined since then. We’ll look at bringing back more of these attacks over time.

  • Arcanine: Flamethrower
  • Poliwrath: Mud Shot
  • Machamp: Cross Chop
  • Golem: Ancient Power
  • Gengar: Shadow Claw
  • Exeggutor: Confusion
  • Pinsir: Fury Cutter
  • Gyarados: Dragon Breath, Twister
  • Snorlax: Body Slam
  • Dragonite: Dragon Breath, Dragon Claw

We’re excited to see the teams you build with these changes, Trainers. Stay tuned, as we’ll be sharing more updates like these in the future. Good luck on the battlefield!

Version Exclusive Pokémon, New Galarian Forms, More Gym Leaders Revealed for SwSh

Posted by Sunain | December 11th 2019 at 12:02 PM EST

Comments: 0

In an announcement today, The Pokémon Company International and Nintendo revealed new Pokémon that have been discovered across the Galar region in the Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield video games, available now exclusively on Nintendo Switch systems. High resolution artwork and screenshots from the press release have been added to an Imageboard thread.

NEW POKÉMON AND MORE CHARACTERS REVEALED FOR POKÉMON SWORD AND POKÉMON SHIELD

Version Exclusive Pokémon, New Galarian Forms, More Gym Leaders, and More Revealed for Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield

The new Pokémon revealed include:

pic

Sandaconda
Category: Sand Snake Pokémon
Type: Ground
Height: 12'6"
Weight: 144.4 lbs.
Ability: Sand Spit / Shed Skin

Sandaconda covers its head with its inflated sand pouch, protecting itself from outside attacks. This sand pouch is able to store over 220 pounds of sand at a time, and it is so highly elastic and thick that even a Durant’s pincers can’t pierce it. Sandaconda’s Ability Sand Spit is a brand-new Ability. When Sandaconda is hit by an attack, the Ability allows this Pokémon to spray sand from its sand pouch and cause a sandstorm.

pic

Centiskorch
Category: Radiator Pokémon
Type: Fire/Bug
Height: 9'10"
Weight: 264.6 lbs.
Ability: Flash Fire / White Smoke

Centiskorch creates flammable gases by fermenting its food within its body. The gases are then burned in the heat-generating organs along its belly. This process produces so much fire that the flames overflow from the antennae on its head. The flames are extremely hot, with temperatures reaching nearly 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit!

pic

Gigantamax Sandaconda
Type: Ground
Height: 72'2"+
Weight: ???
Ability: Sand Spit / Shed Skin

When Sandaconda Gigantamaxes, it appears as a terrifyingly huge tornado. Gigantamax Sandaconda attacks by spinning its body at high speeds in battle, which causes the sand surrounding it to inflict massive damage on anything it touches. Any Ground-type attacks used by Gigantamax Sandaconda will change to G-Max Sandblast. G-Max Sandblast deals damage to opponents when it hits and cause the opponent to be trapped within a tomb of sand that damages them every turn for four to five turns. It also prevents Pokémon from fleeing or being swapped out.

pic

Gigantamax Centiskorch
Type: Fire/Bug
Height: 246'1"+
Weight: ???
Ability: Flash Fire / White Smoke

The number of segments in Centiskorch’s body increases due to the influx of Gigantamax power, as does the number of its legs. With these legs, Gigantamax Centiskorch is capable of astounding speeds despite its massive size. Fire-type attacks used by Gigantamax Centiskorch will change to G-Max Centiferno. G-Max Centiferno deals huge damage to opponents and cause them to be trapped within a firestorm that will deal continuous damage to them for four to five turns. G-Max Centiferno will also prevent opponents from fleeing or being swapped out.

These special Gigantamax Pokémon can be encountered in Max Raid Battles. Until January 9, 2020 players of Pokémon Sword will be more likely to encounter Gigantamax Sandaconda, while Pokémon Shield players will be more likely to encounter Gigantamax Centiskorch, so be sure to try your hand at some Max Raid Battles during this period.

Version exclusive Pokémon and more Gym Leaders were also revealed. In Pokémon Sword, players will be able to encounter:

pic

Stonjourner
Category: Big Rock Pokémon
Type: Rock
Height: 8'2"
Weight: 1146.4 lbs.
Ability: Power Spot

Stonjourner has a body made of various stones, big and small, and it acts by moving these stones like arms and legs. On occasion, this Pokémon will put on a burst of speed to use its long legs in a dynamic move. Stonjourner’s Ability, Power Spot, is a new Ability which will power up the moves of its allies. This Ability can be used to great effect in Double Battles and Max Raid Battles to help support your allies.

pic

Galarian Darumaka
Category: Zen Charm Pokémon
Type: Ice
Height: 2'4"
Weight: 88.2 lbs.
Ability: Hustle

It is said that Galarian Darumaka arose long ago, when seismic shifts caused the warm region they lived in to cool down. The fire that once burned within their bodies was extinguished, and in its place, Darumaka of this region developed an organ that allows them to produce cold air.

pic

Galarian Darmanitan
Category: Zen Charm Pokémon
Type: Ice
Height: 5'7"
Weight: 264.6 lbs.
Ability: Gorilla Tactics

Galarian Darmanitan evolves from Galarian Darumaka. This Pokémon lives its life with a large ball of snow always upon its head. This snowball serves as a way for it to store food, and Galarian Darmanitan seems to place the food and things it finds into this snowball to keep them preserved. Galarian Darmanitan has the new Ability Gorilla Tactics, which causes its Attack stat to increase but means it can only use the first move that is chosen for the entirety of a battle. Some Galarian Darmanitan can have the Hidden Ability Zen Mode. A Galarian Darmanitan with this Ability will ignite with fury and change form if its HP drops to half or less of its maximum during battle. Its dormant fire sac, long neglected in the Pokémon’s cold environment, blazes back to life in battle.

pic

Gym Leader Gordie
Gordie is a Gym Leader exclusive to Pokémon Sword. This Rock-type leader’s Gym has risen to the majors and has garnered a lot of attention in the Galar region; it’s known as the dark horse of the Pokémon League. His admiration for Rock-type Pokémon led him to join the Rock-type Gym to forge his own path to greatness.

In Pokémon Shield, players will be able to encounter:

pic

Eiscue
Category: Penguin Pokémon
Type: Ice
Height: 4'7"
Weight: 196.2 lbs.
Ability: Ice Face

Eiscue hails from a very cold area, and it produces cold air from within its head to create ice around it and protect its head from warmth. The ice around its head can be shattered by a strong blow. It creates new ice every time this happens. Eiscue has a new Ability called Ice Face. When Eiscue is in this form, the ice covering its head will protect it from the damage of a single physical move—but the ice will then be destroyed, changing Eiscue into its Noice Face form. When Noice Face Eiscue is on the battlefield, it will be able to return to its ice-topped Ice Face form if the weather condition changes to hail. Noice Face Eiscue will turn back into Ice Face Eiscue once hail begins or once Eiscue enters the battlefield when it’s hailing if the Pokémon had been withdrawn from battle. In Noice Face form, Eiscue has lower Defense and Sp. Def compared to its Ice Face form, but it will have increased Speed.

pic

Galarian Corsola
Category: Coral Pokémon
Type: Ghost
Height: 2'
Weight: 1.1 lbs.
Ability: Weak Armor

It’s said that this form arose from the Corsola that lived in the sea surrounding the Galar region in the ancient past that lost their lives to a meteorite impact in the area. They are often found living in places that were once seabeds, and it’s said that they sometimes attack humans and Pokémon that they come in contact with.

Cursola
Category: Coral Pokémon
Type: Ghost
Height: 3'3"
Weight: .9 lbs.
Ability: Weak Armor

Cursola evolves from Galarian Corsola. After continuing to store up the energy it has absorbed from other creatures for so long, Cursola has lost its corporeal body. Its spirit energy overflows and now pours out of its former shell. Cursola enjoys the new lightness this form gives it, because it’s sometimes spotted bobbing along as it wanders.

pic

Gym Leader Melony
Melony is an Ice-type Pokémon user and the only Gym Leader able to boast that she’s never once lost to Raihan, who is generally regarded as the strongest Gym Leader in the current Galar Pokémon League. She is also the mother of the Rock-type user Gordie. While she has a generous and bighearted nature, she loves hard battles and hits opponents in their weak spots with unflinching accuracy.

In both Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, players will be able to encounter both the Dark-type Gym Leader Piers and the Dragon-type Gym Leader Raihan.

pic

Gym Leader Piers
Piers is the Gym Leader of a Gym that was once said to have been among the greats. He may be a bit wild, but he is a Trainer who truly cares for his hometown and his friends. He loves his Gym, with its close ties to the town it’s based in, and he has been trying desperately to support it together with his Dark-type Pokémon. But he also seems to be getting impatient with the limitations of his own strengths.

pic

Gym Leader Raihan
Raihan is said to be the strongest Gym Leader in the current Galar Pokémon League. He is also the rival of Leon, the sitting Champion. Raihan is a Dragon-type user and trains relentlessly, while also making the time to enjoy his hobbies of fashion and cultivating his social media presence.
