Shooting water out of fingertips in a James Bond pose is (a) cooler (b) on the right side of the natural/artificial divide and (c) not a dog with a sodding gun.

The grass monkey looks daft, but still better than the other grass monkey. Not much more to say at this point.

Announced legendary is very underwhelming in my opinion, doesn’t look great, lacklustre typing. Wonder if it’ll be part of the Isle of Armor DLC or just distributed via WiFi.

The Mythical Monkey of England. Never heard of it.

The ‘za’ bit at the beginning suggests that this is the third wolf. Not sure how that ties in with being a flipping monkey.

Imagine just making a new pokemon on the fly now and making more money from it, marketing it with "A NEW POKEMON IS BEING ANNOUNCED... WOW LOOK GUYS IT'S... A NEW POKEMON!!! IT'S A MONKEY BUT THIS ONE'S BLACK OMG WOW SO AMAZING WOW!!!" and then all the fans just eat that gooseberry fool up

If they wanted something to fit in with the wolf theme of the other cover legendary Pokémon they could have just gone for a werewolf-esque Pokémon, although that was already kind of done with Moon’s version of Lycanroc.

Beat the champ. That fight was strawberry floating hairy. Got him on the second attempt. The first fight, his Cinderace managed to kill my Inteleon. God he is so shite.

I found the champ a walk over. The guy with the hoodie before him was tougher for me. I forgot his name. Dragon guy looks like he has a beer gut.

On my run of Shield, Leon was trivial. On Sword where my team were under levelled it was a bit trickier, had to get the set up right with Gyarados and dragon dance.

New legendary looks alright, but we're all forgetting the most important question:

Can Zarude learn Sandstorm?
