Notes on USUM Legendary Beasts

Entei and Raikou are now version exclusives. With this info, only Legendary Birds and Pixie trio remain as the trios without a version exclusivity.


Similarly, only Legendary Golems and Pixies remain as the minor trios without a dependence on starters.

This could imply that Legendary Beasts' types will be the basis of the next major legendaries.

Going with the Rainbow Rocket

PWT had Champions and Elite Four
RR will have all villain teams.
This leaves Rivals, Professors, Elite Fours, and previous protags.

Rivals have been possible to battle in Stadium games, so most likely they will be the next major focus.

Professors generally can't fight, though recent ones have been significant bosses. Protags are similar.

Random Comment Dump

Field(Physical): Chesnaught, Incineroar, Samurott
Defensive: Torterra, Emboar, Blastoise
Speedy: Serperior, Infernape, Greninja
Bulky: Venusaur, Typhlosion, Swampert

This seems a decent enough selection.  I'll probably rescramble it with the next generation.

  7. Fire-type turtle.
  8. Field-based Grass and Water starters for Emboar.

  6. 95, 90, 75, 65: Speed
Edit (26.10.2017):
-Early Electrics have been so far:
  1. Field, Fairy: Pikachu
  2. Field, Monster: Mareep
  3. Field: Electrike
  4. Field: Shinx
  5. Field: Blitzle
  6. Monster, Dragon: Helioptile
  7. Field, Fairy: Pikachu, again.
Honorary mentions: Mineral, Alolan Geodude, Bug: Grubbin

Monster/Fairy and Fairy/Dragon are unused Egg Group combinations. Field/Dragon is used for snakes and Scraggy. An electric snake, maybe?

-Water/Ground species:
  1. Water 1/Field: Wooper
  2. Water 1/Monster: Mudkip
  3. Water 2: Whiscash
  4. Water 1/Amorphous: Shellos
  5. Water 1: Tympole
The sole Water2/Field member is Wailmer, so a Water/Ground whale maybe? Monster/Field is another large group. Water2/Water 1 can occur, maybe a cuttlefish?

In terms of Pseudos, there are no Water 1/Monster pseudo. Possibly a Rock/Water, Water/Flying or Ground/Water.
Edit(27.10.2017):

Dragon/Monster exists for Fire and Electric. Grass, Water and Ice can get it.

Edit(28.10.2017):
There are no Ice/Ghost types in Amorphous Egg Group, yet.

Edit (29.10.2017):

Going on some potential counterparts to Ultra Beasts, here are some options I have:

  1. Cyberspace species: Similar to current Yu-Gi-Oh! series' Cyberse monsters, I thought of a sub-group of species that will be encountered in the cyberspace. These species would be two staged species with stats based off composite numbers, as opposed to prime numbers. Similar to Nebula trio, the respective main legendaries would be based off these cyberspace species, with third legendary serving as a Minicon style upgrade.
  2. Time-displaced species: Similar to UBs, these would be species that are displaced in spacetime. Future variants would be Steel and Electric focused, Past variants would be Rock and Psychic focused. Some would have version dependent side evolutions. The third legendary would "age" the main legendaries.
  3. Rare migrating species based off different seasons can work. Third legendary would force the given season upon fusion.

How to improve: 513-514: Pansear-Simisear


1.Stats: Should Simisear get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

Unlikely, Simisear already has a high gap.

An evolution would be fun, though.

A Mega would be a waste without a small boost.

2.Should Simisear get more abilities?

YES. Drought would be fun on Simisear.

3.Should Simisear get more moves?

More Punching moves and Swords Dance would be helpful

4.What additional typing Simisear can have?

Fighting, Dark, Normal can work.

Shitty form change ideas

-A species that changes form depending on whether Grassy Terrain is activated or not.
-A species that evolves into a different form depending on the season it evolves.
-Has a form change at %75, %50,%25 HP
-Form change creates a secondary attacker(something like a living shadow that works as Parental Bond).
-Changes form depending on Nature.
-Changes form depending on father's Egg Group upon hatching.
-Changes form depending on IV total.

Notes on Late Ice-types

Note: Crabominable is not listed because its base form can be obtained early.


How to improve: 572-573: Minccino-Cinccino



1.Stats: Should Cinccino get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

Cinccino can get at most +30 BST boost.

An evolution would be much better, but given its nature, something like an Azurill or Pichu would be more fitting.

A Mega would be cool, though hard to say how it would work.

2.Should Cinccino get more abilities?

Probably. Pickup would be fine.

3.Should Cinccino get more moves?

Probably. Play Rough is an obvious choice.

4.What additional typing Cinccino can have?

Psychic, Fairy, Dark and Electric are obvious options.

How to improve: 278-279: Wingull-Pelipper


1.Stats: Should Pelipper get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

+15 BST to match Swellow would be cool.

What Pelipper really needs is an evolution, however.

A Mega would be useless, really.

2.Should Pelipper get more abilities?

Pelipper already has three abilities, but if it were to get more, Pickup and Water Absorb would be nice.

3.Should Pelipper get more moves?

Probably. Belch would be fun to use.

4.What additional typing Pelipper can have?

Ice, Dark and Normal are the obvious options.

10 Ekim 2017 Salı

How to improve: 131: Lapras


1.Stats: Should Lapras get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

Lapras cannot get much more stats.

Lapras cannot really evolve further outside of a stat redistribution.

A Mega would be cool.

2.Should Lapras get more abilities?

Refrigrate would be nice.

3.Should Lapras get more moves?

Lapras should get Recover or Slack Off.

4.What additional typing Lapras can have?

Electric, Dragon and Psychic are obvious options.

How to improve: 684-685: Swirlix-Slurpuff


1.Stats: Should Slurpuff get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

+30 BST can be at most. Slurpuff currently only has 140 BST gap.

An evolution would be better, though.

Mega Evolution can be useful, but Slurpuff is far too balanced for that.

2.Should Slurpuff get more abilities?

Yes. Slurpuff can get Pixilate, Misty Surge, Cute Charm, Gluttony etc.

3.Should Slurpuff get more moves?

Elemental Punches are obvious, but fang based moves are a necessity as well.

4.What additional typing Slurpuff can have?

Grass, Fighting, Fire and Psychic are obvious options.

How to improve: 543-544-545: Venipede-Whirlipede-Scolipede


1.Stats: Should Scolipede get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

+15 BST to match Leavanny is a must. But it already got a boost so it will likely wait for a while.

A side evolution would be cool.

A Mega would be okay with another boost.

2.Should Scolipede get more abilities?

Sheer Force would be decent. Tough Claws would be better.

3.Should Scolipede get more moves?

Stone Edge and claw based moves would be cool. Sticky Web would be divine.

4.What additional typing Scolipede can have?

Ground, Steel, Rock are options.

How to improve: 324: Torkoal


1.Stats: Should Torkoal get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

Torkoal can get at most +70 BST boost.

An evolution would make most sense, but a pre-evo is more fitting for now.

A Mega would be too weak.

2.Should Torkoal get more abilities?

Torkoal can get something like Aftermath, or some other Ability like Flash Fire.

3.Should Torkoal get more moves?

Slack Off would be the ideal option. Mud Shot and Mud Bomb are options as well.

4.What additional typing Torkoal can have?

Rock, Ground, Fighting are options.

9 Ekim 2017 Pazartesi

How to improve: 710-711: Pumpkaboo-Gourgeist


1.Stats: Should Gourgeist get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

+10 BST to update Gourgeist would be neat.

An evolution can work, though would be weird.

A Mega would be cool, but would require a decent Ability, and be fitting for all forms.

2.Should Gourgeist get more abilities?

Probably. Regenerator would have been cool, so would Intimidate.

3.Should Gourgeist get more moves?

Flare Blitz and Recover are the most obvious missing moves.

4.What additional typing Gourgeist can have?

Dark, Psychic and Fire are the obvious choices.

How to improve: 276-277: Taillow-Swellow


1.Stats: Should Swellow get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

At most it can get +15 BST to have +200 BST gap.

An evolution is absolutely necessary for Swellow to have any point.

Outside of Huge Power a Mega Swellow cannot work.

2.Should Swellow get more abilities?

Yes. Swellow needs one more Ability, and Gale Wings would be fine.

3.Should Swellow get more moves?

Swords Dance would be the best choice.

4.What additional typing Swellow can have?

Dark, Steel and Fighting would be the best option.

How to improve: 060-061-186: Poliwag-Poliwhirl-Politoed


1.Stats: Should Politoed get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

+10 BST to match Poliwrath is obvious. But Politoed can get +40 at most.

A side evolution already exists, and a fourth evolution is impossible.

A Mega would require a good Ability to work.

2.Should Politoed get more abilities?

Regenerator would be cool.

3.Should Politoed get more moves?

Recover would be obvious. More Psychic moves like Calm Mind and more Dark-type moves like Nasty Plot and Dark Pulse would be fun as well. Teeter Dance would be thematically fitting as well.

4.What additional typing Politoed can have?

Psychic, Fighting, Ground and Normal would be the obvious options.

How to improve: 209-210: Snubbull-Granbull


1.Stats: Should Granbull get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

Granbull has not got any boosts, but at least it can get +20 BST to match a 170 BST gap.

An evolution would make sense regardless, however.

A Mega would be a failure.

2.Should Granbull get more abilities?

Pixilate would be the obvious option if it were the case. Iron Fist and Strong Jaw would be the other options.

3.Should Granbull get more moves?

Slack Off and Drain Punch would be fun.

4.What additional typing Granbull can have?

All elemental types and Normal can work, but ignoring them Ground, Fighting, Rock and Steel can all work.

How to improve: 524-525-526: Roggenrola-Boldore-Gigalith


1.Stats: Should Gigalith get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

Gigalith already had a +10 BST boost.

Gigalith cannot evolve further. It can get a side evo or regional form, however.

Gigalith with a Mega would be weird, but useful.

2.Should Gigalith get more abilities?

Gigalith recently got a full set of abilities, so it is not too necessary. Solid Rock or Clear Body would be fun though.

3.Should Gigalith get more moves?

Probably. Gigalith is desperate for a recovery move, maybe Shore Up?

4.What additional typing Gigalith can have?

Ground, Steel and Fighting are the main options.

How to improve: 043-044-045: Oddish-Gloom-Vileplume


1.Stats: Should Vileplume get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

Probably. Vileplume already got a stat boost, but it is insufficient.

An evolution is impossible, and a side-evolution already happened.

A Mega wouldn't save it, but would make it less useless.

2.Should Vileplume get more abilities?

Yes. Vileplume only has only two Abilities. Grassy Surge would be an obvious option.

3.Should Vileplume get more moves?

Absolutely. Vileplume should get more Dark and Fairy moves like Dark Pulse and Draining Kiss.

4. What additional typing Vileplume can have?

Fairy and Dark are the most obvious options.



7 Ekim 2017 Cumartesi

How to improve: 550: Basculin


1.Stats: Should Basculin get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

A +15 BST update to match it to Bruxish would be decent at least.

An evolution is almost necessary for it to get any relevance.

Mega is unlikely, as it has an alternate form.

2.Should Basculin get more abilities?

Maybe. Basculin has good Abilities, but it would rather have moves to back its moves.

3.Should Basculin get more moves?

Probably. It has a very limited movepool, so it can get anything. Psychic Fangs and Hydro Pump are the most obvious options.

4.What additional typing Basculin can have?

Ice, Dark and Fighting are options. Rock is also an option.

Notes on VGC 2018

Since cover legendaries are still banned, this means that Switch games will likely be in 2019, and the current three year cycle will continue for the time being.

This also likely implies at least one, at most two Mythicals with alternate Forms for USUM.

This doesn't mean Gen 8 won't appear in the next movie, but it does mean we won't see a new Mythical in the next movie.

This does mean that there is a good chance that Switch will only last six years, unless it has three generations for a full nine years life cycle(which would be 11 years of wait for Pokémon).

How to improve: 590-591: Foongus-Amoonguss



1.Stats: Should Amoonguss get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

Foongus-Amoonguss already has a 170 BST gap, and this can be increased by +30 at most.

An evolution is very necessary despite Spore.

A Mega would be nonsensical without a broken Ability.

2.Should Amoonguss get more abilities?

Yes. Amoonguss only has two abilities and some possible options:

  1. Chlorophyll
  2. Gluttony
  3. Illuminate
  4. Sap Sipper
  5. Solar Power
  6. Water Absorb

3. Should Amoonguss get more moves?

Yes. Amoonguss' movepool is a disgrace. At the very least it can get Acid and Acid Spray.

4.What additional typing Amoonguss can have?

Dark is the only possible option.

4 Ekim 2017 Çarşamba

How to improve: 554-555: Darumaka-Darmanitan



1.Stats: Should Darmanitan get a stat boost, Evolution, Mega Evolution or nothing?

Darmanitan Standard can get at most +60 BST to match Zen Mode.

Darmanitan can get an evolution, though Zen Mode already works as one.

Species with form changes generally do not get Megas.

2.Should Darmanitan get more abilities?

Yes. Darmanitan only has two Abilities and needs another. Some options would be Iron Fist, Drought, Flame Body, Reckless.

3.Should Darmanitan get more moves?

Slack Off and Nasty Plot are obvious options. Psycho Cut and Psychic Fangs are also options.

4.What additional typing Darmanitan can have?

Fighting, Ground, Normal and Rock are options.
