Actually, we don't know for a fact that that's Dark Pulse. While it's true that it does bare a striking resemblance to the Dark Pulse animation from GenIV, one mustn't forget that the screeny in question is a Beta shot for a new generation of games. It may be Dark Pulse, but it's also possible that it's a completely different attack with a similar animation, or maybe even some kind of new PokeBall release animation.
And I agree, I don't see the point to this thread. It could have easily gone into any of the other dozen or so Zoro or Screeny discussion threads.
So, despite looking very much like the Gen IV animation of Dark Pulse, we are all in agreement that this is probably isn't Dark Pulse and is instead some random ball effect or a different move we know nothing about?
A Dark-type Pokemon used a Dark-type Attack. Amazing...
