I don't know why people are expecting Levitate when they know how insanely good that would make it.
Dusknoir has no legs and floats, so it must have Levitate right? And what about Milotic? Heck, even Tirtouga floats around.
I'm betting it's not going to have Levitate, or if it does, it will have lackluster stats/movepool to make up for it.
I hope it doesn't have it because if it does have Levitate it's pretty much going to be another Spiritomb. Good typing but held back by shortcomings in other areas. If it is weak to Ground as well, it will be able to actually have some decent stats and moves.
P.S. Wait, its Ability isn't confirmed right?
We're not expecting it, we're hoping for it. Besides even if it doesn't have levitate, air balloon still exists.

ive explained this before, but ghost/steel would break the game. its too good. offense has no way to get through it. this, in addition to the fairy type, and you are looking at a full on stall tier.
I say thank goodness. Finally Defensive Playstyles can be viable after being obsolete in the increasingly hyper-offensive metagames of past generations. With Fairy-Types (supposedly) shutting down Outrage Spam and now a Ghost/Steel type, it looks like defense/stall is back in play in Pokemon.

Imo, 60 base defenses is still pretty good for a type that would defensively wall a greater portion of the types. Standard sweepers would probably need a +1 or +2 to guarantee a OHKO. Combined with great offensive stats and a speed, and possibly a new ghost phys move on par w/ Shadowball, it could be a potential threat, even with fire and ground weaknesses.
