I like how people have transitioned from thinking the bracelets involved Burst Evolution to Synchro Evolution. I'm just thinking it's super moves... or Synchro moves...

God, I hate Ash-Greninja. It's mere existence has led everybody to be like "OMG SYNCHRO EVOLUTION" and I just... no. It can't happen.

The bracelets will be used for the Super Moves and possibly Mega Evolution (they have a small circular spot on the inside part of the wrist that could fit a Key Stone), but that's it.

The thing is that Synchro is a cool idea in the fact that it's you become stronger the closer you are to your pokemon, or how well you work together. Which makes sense with Pokemon trying to get people together to complete different goals.
Although, I completely agree with the Ash-Greninja thing. I don't hate it. To me, it's just mega evolution without the key stone. My problem with it is that as soon as Greninja evolved, boom Ash-Greninja, which I hated. The form is bearable, just the backstory behind it.

No, it's not a cool idea. It's just Mega Evolution with the Trainer making the same motions as the Pokemon. That's not cool, that's just stupid. What's the point? I agree it's Mega Evolution without the Key Stone, but it's not anything that's going to be in the games.

Look, you're entitled to your opinion. I like the idea. That's all I'm saying. Remember when Mega Evolution was first revealed. No one liked it. There are still some people who don't like it, like me. Synchrolution might not even be a thing, but some people are excited and others aren't. If you wanna like or hate Ash-Greninja, you do you.

When Mega Evolution was first revealed, I was really excited for it. I love Mega Evolution. I'm dying for Sun/Moon to introduce a Mega Lilligant. The issue I have with Synchro Evolution is that it's not a creative idea. Again, the only difference it offers from being Mega Evolution is that the Trainer moves around too, which offers nothing from a competitive or game play perspective. It's a simple added visual aesthetic that is just unnecessary. And when I said I hate Ash-Greninja, it's not that I hate it's design. I hate the concept that it's brought up, being Synchro Evolution or whatever anybody wants to call it.

And regardless of whether you like it or not, Synchro Evolution has almost certainly been shot down at this point. Characters in the anime, most notably being Alain and Malva, have referred to Ash-Greninja as a Mega Evolution. Alain notes how it "gives off Mega Evolution energy" and how strange it is it "Mega Evolves without the need of a stone." Malva says, in the latest episode, "Greninja's Mega Evolution was exciting!" While the mystery still exists, the most logical solution is that Ash-Greninja is purely an anime-exclusive plot device. It's essentially Mega Greninja, which Ash's bond with Greninja was able to tap into the potential of without the need for a Mega Stone or Key Stone. And to me, this implies that there is a real Mega Greninja that does require a "Greninjite" and Key Stone, which will likely be introduced in Sun/Moon given how popular Greninja is and how popular Mega Evolution is (meaning it will really help drive sales). The anime will likely use this Mega Greninja (which will likely be revealed within the coming month or two) in order to fully explain and wrap up Greninja's story arc, driving the anime into the direction of the Alola Region. 

By the way, the bracelets look like they're going to be used for Super Moves, if the new trailer is anything to go off of. Super Moves do add an interesting mechanic that will be great in the competitive aspects of Pokemon, as well as adding an interesting story element to the games. Synchro Evolution is almost dead at this point. Put your fingers in the air

Alright, now that you say that, that is actually brilliant.
Hear me out for a moment and tell me what you think. What if the bracelets are just for the super move, and Synchro just becomes the new Mega Evolution. Because in the bracelet for Sun and Moon, there doesn't appear to be a key stone slot. So what if Synchrolution just replaces Mega Evolution in the sense that you no longer need a key stone to mega evolve? It might be kinda weird to implement, but what you said has turned on a light bulb.

So if Greninja is a mega Pokemon, there is such thing as a Greninjite, but Ash doesn't need it, because Synchrolution. THAT would be interesting.

Actually, there is a small circular indention on the underside of the bracelets, likely for where a Key Stone could be placed. Mega Stone

No, Synchro likely won't be in the games at all. The bracelets will likely be used solely for Mega Evolution and the Super Moves. Nothing more. Synchro is likely just an anime-exclusive term used for Greninja's transformation in the anime, being just a strange Mega Evolution. It gives them an excuse to give Ash a Mega Evolution without actually giving him a Mega Evolution, you see what I mean?

:nod: Actually, on a second thought, those bracelet remind me of these two features (from "SMD" series) >>>> bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wik…

>>>> bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wik…

I think they are trying to reinforce Pokèmon in a similar way :shrug:

Well. I f you look closely in the trailer. I believe the trainers don't have the blue or yellow crystal yet. So I believe that you get those bracelets pretty early on your adventure and are able to use those special moves. And whenever you get the corresponding crystal to put in the bracelet you'll be able to perform the synchro evolution thingie. But hey. That's just a theory. (wait for it...)
