New Pokemon category goes hard according to players

Staying current with the various classifications and categories within the Pokemon community can be challenging, particularly for those who are new to the fandom.

The term Pseudo Legendary has been a source of confusion for many years.

In a recent fan discussion, the topic of Pseudo Legendaries was brought up after @JoeMerrick, the webmaster of Serebii, noted a potential change in the term by The Pokemon Company. This sparked a debate among the replies as it was declared that an official name for this group may have been established.

According to Joe, the term Powerhouse Pokemon can be found in recent, legitimate materials released by The Pokemon Company – such as the latest merchandise launch on The Pokemon Center – showcasing Pokemon that are considered to be Pseudo Legendaries. This includes creatures like Salamence and Dragapult.

Pseudo Legendaries or Powerhouse Pokemon are defined by meeting a set of requirements. If you are not familiar with this term, these requirements include:

  • Base stats which total 600
  • A slow leveling curve/XP gain curve
  • A fully evolved Pokemon from a 3-stage line

The response from the Pokemon community in the comments was predominantly positive, with numerous individuals expressing their enthusiasm for the new term. One fan even remarked, “I actually prefer this term over Pseudo Legendary… but it may take some time to adjust after using the other term for so long.”

Another Pokemon player concurred, stating, “I prefer it over Pseudo Legends because they seem like generic characters that fans constantly use, but are never mentioned in the actual game. Powerhouse, on the other hand, sounds straightforward and organic.”

Despite the enthusiasm for using Powerhouse as an official term, there were still some who were not convinced. They argued that it lacked clarity and significance. One individual even made a joke, saying, “I will treat this like ‘First Partner’ for the starters and simply disregard it.”

In this discussion, other terms related to Pokemon were also mentioned. A fan expressed their approval of the change by stating, “This title actually goes hard.”They also acknowledged that it was a more sensible choice compared to the contentious use of ‘first partner Pokemon’ instead of ‘starter Pokemon’.

Regardless of whether you refer to them as Pseudo Legendaries or Powerhouse Pokemon, there is no denying that ‘mons such as Baxcalibur, Dragapult, and Hydreigon are formidable opponents. Whether in the TCG or video games, these Pokemon never fail to make a significant impact and stand out among the rest.
