I've been waiting generation after generation for some big changes to my favorite Pokemon line, only to be disappointed every time. Gen 5 brought some... interesting new additions with Agility and Cotton Guard, but overall I can't stand how much this line is neglected! I'm expecting Tail Glow and a special Electric type priority move, Gamefreak!

(I know Tail Glow's Japanese name is Firefly Light, but Manaphy gets it and it ain't no bug. There are also far stranger things that have happened in regards to move names, i.e. Crawdaunt having Dragon Dance.)
Love me long time.

Indeed. If the "rumors" are true and there is an alternative evolution for Flaaffy, that fear would be confirmed!
Love me long time.

Ampharos is my favorite Pokemon ever, and I agree it needs more love. If Lilligant gets Quiver Dance ("Butterfly Dance" in Japanese), then Ampharos should get Tail Glow.

EDIT: On the bright side (pun intended), if the rumored Light type becomes a reality (not that I think it will), the Mareep line has no excuse not to get it, so that'll probably be fun.

Anything... I'm down for anything! Mareep is my favorite Pokemon ever but I also love Flaaffy and Ampharos. If it gets neglected again this generation I'll be a sad sheepie.

Eviolite Skarmory.
I like it!
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

It's bioluminiscence. That's why it can't get it

That's not the reason Manaphy gets it. Manaphy gets it because it's based on a species of Sea Angels that are called "Sea Fireflies" or something like that in Japanese.
