    It's going to be a gamestop event sadly. That is how event mons seem to be distributed for the first time. Diancie will obviously be a viable pokemon. It's guaranteed a 600 base stat total, and rock/fairy is an incredibly potent offensive combo, which only has to worry about being doubly weak to steel. Steel is a move type only ever seen on steel pokemon however so it doesn't really need to worry about being surprise blindsided by a bullet punch.

    I've heard rumors that either Hoopa or Dianca are getting this OP ability that makes every other move miss. Even without protect just invest in all sorts of bulk, spam set up moves and you are set. If it gets protect/recovery well GG metagame.

    Like Meloetta, I dislike its design, therefore I hate it. So this is another mon thats not for me. Probably feel the same for the other one that was leaked thats similar, just too much and not cohesive enough.

    To be fair, there isnt really any other creative ways to make a Rock/Fairy, its essentially a Rock Fairy
