That would definitely be an interesting mechanic, but the Alolan hat definitely throws it off a bit. I feel like it'll eventually be an event; perhaps the hats are able to be changed by an in-game NPC. Hopefully Ash-Pikachu becomes utilized, unlike the special Floette from X/Y.
Yeah very true. I would say they would have to use it because it has access to an exclusive Z-Move, but AZ's Floette had its own signature move so I'm just hoping.
This is definitely legitimate! Very interesting.
