  • Vikavolt (JP: Kuwaganon): Bug/Electric with Levitate
  • Drampa (JP: Jijīron): Normal/Dragon, new ability Berserk raises Special Attack under certain circumstances
  • Bruxish (JP: Hagigishiri): Water/Psychic, new ability "Dazzling" blocks priority moves
  • Cutiefly (JP: Aburī): Bug/Fairy type, Shield Dust/Honey Gather abilities

I didn't like the weird design of Goomy > Sliggoo > Goodra as Dragon types and I don't really like it with Jijiron either. Dragon types should be the baddest looking motherfuckers in the game. Come on! Hopefully it's the first or the second evolution of something that looks a bit cooler in the end.

Donald, this article needs an update; we have english names.

Goodra is hands-down my favorite Gen 6 pokemon on design alone. the fact that it's viable and thick and gives it's trainer slimy hugs only makes it better.

I'm in the camp of people hoping that Drampa here is actually a Dunsparce Evolution.

I'm also lovin' Tapu Koko's design.

OedoJune 30, 2016

I don't think Goodra's design overall is bad by any means, ClexYoshi... I just don't like it as a Dragon type design.

I also realize this is a super weird quibble for me to have.

The Dratini line looks  about as un-badass as possible. Heck, Dragonite is powerful but looks very cutesy.

For sure and there are other cutesy Dragon type designs like Altaria too. The Garchomp kind of Dragon type designs are among my favourites in the games though and I just wish we had more of those than we get.
