    Shitoron does NOT rule team flare, there has been no information to confirm this.

    @3 Yeah, it will likely get changed to a more “English” name per ONM. But, it did give me a chuckle.

    Yeah, particularly given the player age demographics of Pokemon…

    I think a name like that would result in confiscations, suspensions, and parent-teacher conferences. And that’s just from what the kids would get up to with it, never mind unreasonable schools.

    An evil team obsessed with money? Sounds kinda lame.
    I wonder if we’ll get another interesting villain this time around. Both Cyrus and N were great.

    Some great new typing there, especially Dark/Psychic.

    @6 yea Dark Psychic is neat… the Ghost Steel is a nice combo as well! Just hoping we get some more of those not to common dual types!
