Hey hey hey, I’m back again with more fun Pokemon news. Until November 30th, those of you who access Pokemon Bank will be gifted with Johto starter Pokemon, Meganium, Typhlosion, and Feraligatr, with their Hidden Abilities. We’ve never had access to their hidden abilities before now so let the fun begin!
Meganium gets the Leaf Guard ability which prevents status affects from happening while the Sunny Day field condition is active. Typhlosion gets Flash Fire to absorb incoming Fire attacks, boosting its own Fire damage output. Feraligatr gets Sheer Force which negates the bonus affects of certain attacks to beef up the impact, so your attacks like Ice Fang and Crunch will be hitting much harder.
Go ahead and start up that Pokemon Bank!
And for those of you who don’t know about it: Pokemon Bank is an online storage feature for Pokemon X, Y, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire. It cost $5 a year and you can deposit up to 3,000 Pokemon into it. It’s a great tool for collectors and battlers. You can’t transfer items in this way, but it has been mentioned that Pokemon Bank will be the way to transfer Pokemon to the newer generations from here on out so $5/year seems like a sweet deal to me. You can get it from the Nintendo eShop on the 3DS.
