Yeah, as lame as it sounds, I like planning my team out.

It sounds dumb but when I play through the main game, I put in a good effort to use some hipster pokemonz, as in I hate using something if it's totally overused or if it seems like every trainer in the game has one.

Some of my favorites/strongest pokes in game have been pretty unconventional like Lumineon or Heatmor.

I once even managed to stick with a Sunflora for my entire playthrough of SS, which is a feat within itself.

But yeah I'll be keeping up with the pokemon releases as we get them.

I already feel like I know too much. It's okay to learn about features in the game, but we've already been shown twenty, TWENTY, new pokemon.
I like English dubs.

I'm the opposite actually.

As someone who primarily chooses their Pokemon based on aesthetics, there's no way in hell i'm gonna train up a 'Mon not knowing if it's final evolution is godly or a straight up turd.

I'm more opposite as I always look at a complete pokedex, research for about two weeks on bulbapedia and base stats and typing AND THEN play the game. I also have this goal of not catching more than 10 evolution lines.
Gamefreak better add a feature that can topple this fairy type.

I want to but I don't know if I could resist. I only had that experience in gen 2 and 3, our great country still didn't have widespread access to the internetsss
