So Lucario's Recovery gets longer with damage?Originally Posted by Sakurai
Ah, that's good news. It makes it more likely that pre gen five Pokemon still have a chance to be new Poke Ball Pokemon. On the other hand, it means that Spear Pillar won't be returning as a retro stage. How unfortunate, I liked Spear Pillar.
I reckon Spear Pillar will be replaced by somethin' like N's Castle, with legendaries creatin' hazards. I'd specify somewhere in Gen 6, but I somehow doubt Team Flare's Geosenge base will be made into a Xerneas/Yveltal stage... can't see any other location neither. Perhaps the Tower of Mastery, but I don't think said legendaries would fit in there.
Remember this picture.
Still unsure what to make of it.
Oh right, forgot 'bout that.
... That's Pikachu's normal on-stage standing animation, so I reckon it's safe to say Xerneas is on the stage as well, lookin' away. Not that this narrows down whether or not it's a Pokeball 'mon or stage hazards; y'all should recall Dialga 'n Palkia would occasionally jump onto the stage and attack your life points directly.
The fact that they aimed the camera upwards makes it seem like they might be attempting to conceal the identity of the stage...key word being might, of course. It makes sense, at least.
