To be honest, I'm not too surprised.

Also, this means over half of Gen 5's legendaries have alternate forms.


Do Genesect's really count as forms?


The game's coding considers them alternate forms.


That means nothing. They had to program them as alternate formes. It's the same thing as Arceus and people don't consider Arceus to have 16 alternate formes. The Pokedex can show alternate formes for Pokemon that have them and it doesn't consider Arceus and Genesect as formed Pokemon.

Your opinion differs from mine, therefore you are a troll.

But will it get Ice Beam?

It is, as some admiral once said, a trap.

I remember when it was something unique and special to have multiple forms. But now everyone and their mother has them. It's OK Deoxys...you're still cool...

What would you do if they gave Mewtwo an alternate form?


appreciate that they arent ignoring the old, but be frustrated that the forms are only being giving to legendaries (save rotom) and not other pokemon that could use a good stat change, and or type change.

Not only that, but if you check out the official Japanese site's Pokedex Arceus isn't listed for any type but Normal.

I think it's safe to say that for a change to be considered a real alternate form, it has to be a physical change rather than a simple palette swap.

For some reason I did not see this coming, maybe because we haven't even had access to the original forme yet.

I hate additional forms. They add nothing to the game and are simply a gimmick to get fans' money.

... Are you presuming that people would not buy Black and White 2 if Keldeo did not have an alternate forme? Do you think GameFreak is charging for Keldeo's alternate forme? How do alternate formes necessarily equal more money?

(Well, okay, I suppose there's merchandise...)

Genesect's drives already count as alternate formes in BW's data,

All they need to do have them change Genesect's secondary type.


I actually thought about this when the new kami forms were introduced. If Genesect ever gets it's "Drive Form" change, then I'm interested to see Bug/Ice Bug/Electric, and kinda Bug/Water. Bug/Fire would be like Volcarona with better movepools option.


About Keldeo, I'm wondering if the new form going make it a pure Fighting legendary? Just my 2 cents speculation about it.

Next gen, every legendary will have a different forme or two.

Geez Game Freak, way to spam something.

Actually, next gen they will give every past legendary a nerw form too.

Seriously, GF is smoking something really strong, and it's super effective
