      We're never going to let Z go, are we? I think Game Freak has finally managed to push the fandom's OCD into nuclear meltdown.

      On a different note - I'll have a response to our other conversation up later today. I've gotten half of my comment written and saved, and I should be able to finish it up tonight. Again, sorry for the delays.

        I think that only a few fans still care about Kalos' "untapped potential". Some of them are just vocal on BMGf. In fact, outside of two members that aren't around much, I only see Kalos being mentioned by people whose thought process boils down to "hey, why not add a second region to Stars and do something with Zygarde?".

        Glad you enjoyed it this time around. To be honest, the original version is so good that I don't even think any of the dubs managed to turn it into a terrible movie (leaving aside me detesting censorship and editing of any sort, since all of the dubs are spawned off the 4Kids one).

        The ambiguous nature of the Unown in this movie was pretty interesting to me. Here I'm suspecting they latched onto Mii because of her emotions and childlike imagination, easily compatible with their ability to warp and create reality. I'm actually trying to expand on the Unown's role in this movie and connecting them with Arceus in the manga I'm working on right now.

        I hope that you aren't going to turn them into Arceus' underlings or something.

        I'm not, it's more like symbiosis on a cosmic scale. Their portrayal in the movie doesn't really set up for a good role as underlings, anyway. Way too wild and unpredictable.

      Not too familiar with Hawaii'an myth, but there seems to be themes of sacrifice to their gods similar to the Mayan. Some speculate that Lunaala is based on one such god (mayan) named Camazotz. I'll have to research further and Polynesian culture in general, or wait until I (hopefully) vacation to Hawaii later this year.

      Yo Silk. Been a while since I've gotten the chance to be active here, any place by chance where I can read up on any recent theories of yours? : D

      Pretty cool that GameFreak seems to be going with an Alchemy theme for some of the lore of this gen, we actually speculated on that very thing when Kalos was still new.

        Well, not trying to sound biased or anything, but the last two American based regions were pretty story driven... even if Orre may not technically count in that regard, I'm hopeful nonetheless.

        Alola is already premiering on the same console as the previous gen (like Unova did) so perhaps GameFreak will feel the need to make it "stand out" with more depth like they did with regards to BW & Gen4.

        Alchemy as a theme does explain the typing(s) rather well though, and has a root in astrology to boot. However, I have seen people bring up Hawaii's own mythologies which are intriguing; your recent post about the island guardians is very interesting.

        Perhaps the "island challenge" is a way to link the usual league challenge with the mythology of the region? Give it a bit more depth than just hoping from point a to b, but it could also be something else.

        Quite possibly a reasonable explanation for the Ghost typing: https://books.google.co.il/books?id=fkc10_zCBv0C&pg=PA202&lpg=PA202&dq=moon+repository+of+souls&source=bl&ots=kvomiX3bQj&sig=ReNZIQ8-Z5cTxmYlcuh6SxDqbsA&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjjs4r_sJHNAhVDvBoKHca4A-QQ6AEIGjAA#v=onepage&q=moon%20repository%20of%20souls&f=false
        Honestly, I will admit this is rather loose, but GameFreak could have simply conflated the theme(s)Info does come from an alchemy text though.

        Finished reading the blog entry. That's pretty great. Congratulations!

        Hm... I remember hearing about 999 before, but never really got into it. Didn't even know there was a game for The Walking Dead either, though I shouldn't be surprised as it's popular... I think.

        I remember watching Danganronpa, but I never really got into the games as I couldn't get them due to not owning the systems. That and Digimon seem to be the only games that interests me on the PS Vita. I still need to watch Digimon Adventure Tri, perhaps sometime this weekend. ERASED sounds interesting... I'm tempted to watch it.

        The first Danganronpa game is now available on Steam.

        If you're interested in Cyber Sleuth, you may want to buy a PSTV. It's only around $40 these days.

        And you should definitely watch Tri and ERASED. I doubt you won't enjoy them.

        Oh yeah, I remember hearing about that now.

        Yeah, I am interested in Cyber Sleuth, though I'll probably get the PSTV and game sometime in... May-June, since I'll be done with school by then.

        Haha, alright. I've been planning on watching Tri, I'll start this weekend, ERASED.. Either this weekend or next week. I'll let you know what I think of them when I do.

        I'm sure that he is going to pop up again using a sockpuppet. It may be difficult to recognize him because obviously he won't be talking about Z anymore.

        !Z! was a sockpuppet of Gillian, who was in turn a sockpuppet of Azuro. For all we know, his forum history goes even further back.

      Hey, it's been a while. I actually lielowed from Pokemon back in 2014, but the sudden leak of Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon made me get back to Pokemon again.

      Do you think this will be the sequel to X/Y, much like B2/W2 is to B/W? I'm actually feeling this might finally be Generation VII. And Pokemon Sun gave me another hope that Game Freak may finally introduce the Light-type. :p
      1. Silktree
        Silktree
        A new generation is well in order. I don't see these titles being associated with Zygarde, and why else would XY get sequels?
        Feb 26, 2016
      2. bian
        bian
        Yep, it looks like it. Generation VII is indeed coming. So Zygarde's formes will be included in these games.

        I'm waiting for the legendaries,.I wonder what will be the theme this generation. I hope it's Light and Darkness, as it gives me hope for the introduction of the Light-type.

      I do have a question, about the generations, though. Are you still thinking of this as a standalone thing? Or, if you do think it will start Gen VII, what do you make of the future beyond that? I can easily believe that Gen VI will consist of only two entries; that's no different from Gen V. But isn't it kind of awkward to start Gen VII on the 3DS with the NX on the horizon? Unless this is a standalone "special" gen.
      1. Esserise
        Esserise
        Or, crazy thought, Gen VII is only this one entry, the the NX will kick off Gen VIII... but that seems kind of "out there" as possibilities go.

      2. Silktree
        Silktree
        Well, my prediction in the past few days due to the Rainbow leak was exactly that: a standalone game under the anniversary label. That way, Game Freak could move onto the NX in late 2018.

        But the presence of two titles obviously makes me reconsider. It's still possible, but certainly less likely if the marketing is the same as past generations, which the trailer should clarify. It also depends on just how much they're changing the engine. If it is a substantial difference, they'll want to re-use the engine next year, making it unlikely that they can move onto another generation in 2018.

        It's actually possible that the NX handheld will only be released in late 2017, making it reasonable for Game Freak to wait until late 2019. Or the gap will be exactly as long as the 3DS-XY one... Nintendo will survive.

      You're not getting Gen 7 this year :) and a few baseless attacks at me won't change that :)

      Has any merchandise placeholder for the movie shown up yet? Or will the movie merchandise start being advertised later? I don't know where this sort of thing shows up. I'm feeling a new Pokemon in the movie even more now after Corocoro's tease for next month. :D

        There's only one merchandise sheet so far, with no placeholders. It's scheduled to be released in April, so it's pretty obvious that they're saving the major stuff for later.

      We're having "delusional wishful thinking" apparently, because we're looking at the situation and entertaining other possibilities. I can understand people who bring up counter points to discuss but not those people saying we're delusional for personal reasons. It might be that we are wrong about the end result but I don't think our view is unreasonable all things considered.

        I think that Serebii may be one of the worst offenders when it comes to ignoring any evidence that doesn't support a Kalos game.

        Fun fact: When Munchlax was revealed in 2004, a lot of people thought that a new generation would be released that very same year. Serebii was one of them. Years later, he also thought that Generation V would last 4 years, and was still seriously considering it when XY were teased.

        I think him being a big name in the community and so arrogantly confident there being a Gen VI Zygarde game in the works doesn't help people want to consider other options since most fans consider his theories to be mostly accurate (despite being wrong for most of this year). It will be interesting to see. (Also I didn't get a mention from your blog weirdly.)

      To be fair, if Masuda is personally tying Go to the anniversary and it's confirmed to be released in "early 2016," it would come off as weird not to release it on February 27th.

      ----------We already know that Go is treated as part of an anniversary project, which includes the next main release.----------

      Do we actually know there's an anniversary project that includes the next release, or is this just speculation?

        Masuda: "Of course, at the same time, I'm also thinking up ways that this project might connect with the next entry in the main series Pokémon games. 2016 marks the 20th year since Pokémon was born. It's going to be a very meaningful year for me, and I am really excited to be able to participate in this project. I hope everyone will also be excited for Pokémon GO."

        Just a bit of reading between the lines.

      I'm hoping the Virtual Console release isn't an indication that they are treating the anniversary as secondary. I'd much rather they also use that day to announce the next generation and release Pokemon Go.

      I'd be beyond pleased if they released Generation IV and V on Virtual Console one day and revived the Wi-Fi features.
      1. Silktree
        Silktree
        The anniversary isn't limited to a single date, and doing too many things at once isn't necessarily a good idea. I see Go's release and Generation VII's announcement happening around the anniversary, preferably a few weeks in advance. We already know that Go is treated as part of an anniversary project, which includes the next main release.
