The community day for November has been announced, and this month we get two! On two separate days, we will have days featuring two related species; Electivire, which was a Pokemon exclusive to Pokemon Red version of the main series, and Magmar, which was exclusive to Pokemon Blue!

Overall... this is not good. Giving Magmortar Thunderbolt and Electivire Flamethrower is obviously an attempt at contrasting parity and a way to give them both better coverage for PvP, but it's doubtful that this will be enough to make them much better than they are now. And as for PvE: they're both best used for their own innate types, though Magmortar falls short in that area. In truth, it's a shame that it wasn't the one to learn Flamethrower.
