What do you think about Sky battles?

I don't get it. At all.

And I'm kind of scared that they might force them upon us in a gym battle, which means we'd HAVE to catch 2-3 pokemon that are usable in them.


Nintendo already stated that the sky battles would be 100% optional.

I think that they're an interest concept, but I don't see them becoming all that popular compared to doubles.

That said, Aerodactyl is gonna Stealth Rock the format.

I wonder if the Air Balloon will allow a pokemon to participate?

Also, how will Eelektross look in a sky battle?

Aerodactyl, Eelektross and Zapdos will pwn the sky battles IMHO...

It could be interesting. The backdrops are nice, and having your team restricted to a select few should force some people to think of new strategies. At least it's optional so those who don't like the idea aren't forced to do it. I also can't see any Gym Leaders or E4 initiating a sky battle. Maybe gym trainers, but not the leaders themselves.

I like them, but surely there has to be a place to draw the line for who can participate.

Gyarados is Flying type, but can't learn Fly. Yet he can do them.
Volcarona and Genesect aren't Flying type, but can learn Fly. They can't do them.
Eelectross isn't Flying type, and can't learn Fly. Yet he can do them.
