Randomly assigned I imagine, along with gender and personalities values. It's translating the stats over I'd be more interested in, as they already had stat variations they have to somehow preserve.

Probably...though it only being compatible with Sun/Moon has me a bit curious.

The fact that RBY will only be compatible with Sun and Moon makes me think that the battle system and everything involved in it is getting a big overhaul. Or the system they will use for determining natures/abilities/characteristics/etc isn't compatible with XY and ORAS for technical reasons.

They absolutely don't.

Then again mainstream gamers seem to hate reading so there's that.

Or it's just that S/M is Gen 7 and they want to give it a selling point in advance.
