- points earned from Mantine Surf can be used to get items
- you can have Move Tutors teach your Pokemon moves that they couldn’t learn in last year’s games
- it’s not yet known if points can be obtained through other methods or if the points are Battle Points
Hopefully Umbreon can learn a decent physical STAB move like Crunch
hopefully incineroar can fire punch or sucker punch this time
still blows my mind to this day he couldn't in S/M.
