    Some designs felt a bit lazy or out of whack (Charizard X just floats (nothing special -_-) and why did they have to make Eelektross (my favourite) look like its Swimming (I wouldn't care if it was banned in Sky Battle))

    @Jolenne; Iron Ball, Gravity, Ring Target, Mold Breaker, Mega Charizard X. I'm out of Sky Trainers to challenge, but if anybody can do it, I wanna see :)

    What I don't get is that gliding Pokemon clearly do have grounded models; they use them in Pokemon amie. So why not just give those a few attack animations?
    Yeah, this is the part that annoys me most.

    Well, it's not that surprising (although a bit disappointing) that they can't get animations for every pokémon compared to Stadium, considering Stadium had a hell lot fewer pokémon.

    @Stratelier; If the only eligible Pokemon are Flying Types or Levitate, I fail to see how Ground type moves would ever work in these battles.

    Doduo's clearly air bending. Look at those leg movements. Bending.

    Yeah, the models that just sit there gliding like Xatu and Skarmory are the worst, if they were going to use the same models for sky battles and ground battles, they should at least flap their wings or something.
    Charizard (and Charizard Y) flap their wings; Charizard X just ... floats.

    One question I'd like to know sometime is if Dig/Earthquake works in Sky Battles (Charizard can learn both), but I'm out of Sky Trainers to battle and no rematches. Sky Trainers are so far just a specialized class of NPC trainer and not a 'new' type of battling (though some of them are quite genre savvy, being armed with Electric/Ice types or attacks).

    I actually just consider that canon when it comes to the question of how Doduo and Dodrio fly.

    Also, Chesnaught forgets that he has a huge shell on his back. Well, they'll probably resolve these issues in Gen VII (or, if we're lucky, Z/X2Y2 version.)

    I always thought the Sky Battles were incredibly gimmicky and stupid. There's literally no new mechanics or anything like when they added Rotation and Triple battles. It's just "Hey, let's battle but only using a very small selection of Pokemon!" It's just... what's the point?

    I agree, some of the animations in X/Y are just illogical, I mean really, like the Hydro Pump one, it's like the cannon is just there to make it look cool.

    If I were to do a monotype run, I think I definitely would do it with Bug. Especially after the introduction in Gen V I think there's great coverage with a lot of pretty cool pokemon.

    I'd probably go with Scyther for the last member. :3
