You know someone in Santalune tells you the names of all of the badges, and one of them (in English, at least) is explicitly named the Fairy Badge. Come to think of it, almost half of the Kalos Badges are straight-up named after their gym's type - Bug, Fairy, and Psychic. The others are fairly self-explanatory as well - Cliff (most likely Rock, possibly Ground), Rumble (Fighting), Plant (Grass), Voltage (Electric), and Iceberg (Ice). Of course, I've only beaten the first gym so far, so most of these are speculation, but they don't exactly require great leaps of logic.

Y tho? Over in Japan, the dark type is less 'absence of light' and more 'evil. Like, bad guy pokemon'. And by and large we don't get any evil leaders or town mayors, except Giovanni who totally would have pulled it off. Don't expect to be surprised, OJ.

In any case.
Nobody cares.
The gyms are all too easy to notice what type they are anyway. Fairy/Psychic is all just a big magenta blur to me.

Speaking of Fairy/Psychic, Gardevoir wrecks fighting gyms. Doubly resistant to Fighting~

Dark type is my favorite type because it's construed as evil.

Not all Dark types are evil though. Absol is the best example.

And even then, wasn't it once said that no Pokemon is naturally evil, they only become evil if their trainer raises them like that?

Though I think that might be info from the first gen, so it might not be canon anymore.

welcome to trying to bring morality into pokemon: the thread. kind of like trying to decide which chess piece is the most aggressive

i decided to stick with pancham because it evolved into super bear and it's moderately good now, aurorasaurus hasn't evolved yet but i'm getting there, and i think chessnut might evolve in like one level

team so far
- wall nut
- flying man
- oso
- aurorasaurus

I think that's pretty much just the anime. Many Pokémon are described as vicious or violent in their Pokédex descriptions.

So I've gotten two more team members and, of course, started a team rotation. I just couldn't resist. Also, Meowstic Maya's name finally makes sense now that she's evolved!
 
Funnelcake the braixen
William the Vivillon
Percy the Azumarill
Daryan the furfrou
Maya the Meowstic
Caledwelsh the honedge
Glb'golyb the Inkay
Calliope the amaura
 
I'll be taking the latter six into the second gym. They're all level 25-26. Do you guys think I'm ready?

Well, guess I was ready. The battle was, like, really anticlimactic.
Spoiler:
Maya two-shot the amurica or however you spell it, although she did get paralyzed, then Percy took out the tyrunt with a critical-hit ohko aqua tail.


Gahhhh oh gosh Carbink is rare as heck. Also its catch rate is awful. After maybe two dozen encounters before finding it, it broke out of three great balls while asleep at red health.
 
Can anyone figure out its stats? It's level 23 with an Adamant nature and it's "Capable of taking hits".
62/35/81/30/76/29
That Defense looks, like, really really high, but maybe its other stats just totally suck? Iunno.

Try smogon. It has low HP but large defenses; a shuckle but less extreme.

Carbink has insane physical and special defense, but its other stats are pretty low.

So! In other, less capslock-y shouty news, I've got a Malamar now! :V
Man, it looked cool even in screenshots, but it looks way better in motion. It's just so... so sinister and threatening and cooool and it's like hypnotically swaying back and forth and its glowy patterns are all pulsing and stuff and its tentacles are waving around slowly and eeeee C: Its pokèdex entry makes it even better:
paraphrased from the pokeydecks:
It wields the most compelling hypnotic abilities of any POKèMON. It uses them to make anyone do its bidding.
Doesn't that make it sound so awesome??? Also, according to Smogon(whose website i managed to find on my own hahaha :V)...
contains information on some pokèmon's function in battle:
That one we saw the stats of? Turns out it DID have crappy IVs, and Malamar's base stat spread looks to be 80/100/90/70/65/70. Not great, but very usable! I'm pretty happy about this.
Here are some other stats they found out: (Stats are "about __" if they are unconfirmed estimates.)
 
Chesnaught is 90/100/120/80/70/70
Delphox is about 75/75/70/110/95/105
Greninja is 80/90/75/100/75/120
Yep, basically what I figured they were like.
 
Diggersby is about 85/60/75/50/75/75... but it can have Huge Power as a Hidden Ability, which you can find in a horde battle. Say hello to the best route-1-normal-type-420 BST-thingamajig yet!
 
Talonflame is about 75/80/70/80/70/130. Jeez, what's with that Speed? Too bad all its other stats are mediocre.
 
Vivillon is 80/50/50/100/50/100. Yessss, I was right, it IS better than Butterfree and Beautifly! I'm actually really relieved, because Vivillon has one of my favorite designs in gen 6.
 
Pyroar is 85/75/75/110/65/105. The heck??? Wowww UNEXPECTED is all I can say. Did ANYONE think it'd be a special attacker with mediocre Attack?
 
Florges is about 70/65/60/115/145/80. Woah jeez that Sp.Defense. I'm guessing this is the final form of Flabèbè, judging by its name, type, stats, and its place in the list?
 
Gogoat is 125/105/65/90/80/70. Wow, um, didn't see that coming? I mean, low-ish defense and massive HP? I figured it'd be more like 95/105/95/70/80/80 or something.
 
Pangoro is about 110/130/80/80/80/70. Yep, that's around what I expected.
 
Furfrou is 75/80/55/65/90/100. Wow, that's actually pretty close to my prediction, but better! I'm glad this thing is decent. I figured it'd be close to 70/80/50/50/80/85.
 
Meowstic is about 80/50/85/95/95/110. I'm surprised at how good its HP/Defense are and how low its Attack is, but I'm happy with these stats.
 
Aegislash is 60/60/150/60/150/60 in its defensive stance, and 60/150/60/150/60/60 in its offensive stance. Niiiice, it looks really useful. I just hope its low Speed won't let it down too much.
 
Aromatisse is 100/65/75/95/95/30. Wait what that Speed? I didn't expect a bird to be as slow as a freakin' Slowbro.
 
Slurpuff's stats have yet to be determined.
 
Malamar is about 80/100/90/70/65/70. Totally different from my prediction of about 105/60/70/115/115/50, but I can get used to it.
 
Barbaracle is 70/115/115/50/100/80. Dangggg that looks good. I might just have to use one in my next playthrough.
 
Dragalge is about 70/80/90/95/125/65. What low speed! What high sp.defense! I wasn't quite expecting this.
 
Clawitzer is about 70/70/100/130/100/55. Nice. Once we realized it would be a special attacker, I thought it'd be like this.
 
Heliolisk is about 60/65/55/120/100/120. Wow, more fragile and offense-based than I would've thought. This, um, this is Helioptile's evolution, right?
 
Tyrantrum is about 95/130/120/80/60/70. Neat. It looks useful. Nothin' else I have to say here.
 
Auroros is about 125/85/70/120/95/70. Wow, um, really? Well, there go my dreams of Calliope being a mixed attacker with an ice Return. Ah well, I was considering boxing her soon anyway.
 
Sylveon is 95/60/65/110/130/65. That's what I thought.
 
Hawlucha is about 90/95/80/70/70/110. Darn, I was hoping it'd be a flying bird with mediocre speed for once. Doesn't it look more like a 95/105/80/70/70/80 to you?
 
Dedenne's stats have yet to be determined.
 
Carbink is about 50/65/155/50/155/50. Yep, mini-Shuckle is right. Man, I ought to try this thing out someday. Too bad it's got better physical attack, or else the newly stronger-than-Rock Slide Power Gem would be really nice on it.
 
Goodra is about 80/95/80/115/140/90. Worse HP than what I thought, but otherwise expected. Man, assuming the level curve is as steep as BW2's, this thing is actually evolvable, like, before the very end of the game, which is great.
 
Klefki is 50/80/90/80/80/70. Mediocre stats, sure, but a great defensive type and Prankster. I might just have to try using this guy sometime.
 
Trevenant is 90/120/70/70/80/50. I figured as much. Looks pretty useful, and it apparently can learn Horn Leech. Cool.
 
Gourgeist is 70/80/120/50/75/90 in its smallest form, and perhaps about 95/105/125/60/80/50 in its biggest form? The gaps between the high and low estimates for the biggest form were so big that it's hard to be sure. The middle two forms' stats have yet to be determined, but we can make educated guesses about them.
 
Avalugg is about 100/110/180/45/50/30. Jeez, what min-maxing this thing has! I haven't actually seen this thing, but I'd never expect a pure Ice-type to have stats like this.
 
Noivern is about 90/80/80/105/85/120. Cool, but nothing else I have to say about it, really.
 
Xerneas was next, so I stopped scrolling down because I didn't want to spoil myself about any remaining legendaries.

Meowstic is such a cat. Going all like "Whatever." while it's plainly visible that she likes me high-fives. <3

Also, Pokemon Amie is the greatest thing ever. I wish the Expression Game were less buggy, though.

I don't know if I want to take Lucario. My team is already full, but I feel bad for abandoning him. Conflicting feelings, aaargh.

Spark. You're a cool member of my team.

Also, I really love what Korrina says: "You soon going to swim in these [badges]" I think Game Freak did this pacing completely on purpose. And they are aware that we know they know we know.
