So Marshadow possesses a bunch of Pokemon at an attempt to kill Ash and the other three trainers. Okay...
This makes me uncomfortable because it's another case of a movie treading close to my view of Neo Celebi, except... not really because there is no backstory to justify this extreme attitude. Plus, it's small in scale.
Welp. There goes my interest in the franchise down the drain.
I'm pretty sure that they did consider a cross-platform release at one point, which would explain Eurogamer and the Switch TBA slip-up. But it clearly isn't a cross-platform release, and a fifth version, even for the Switch, would be ridiculous. I hope they realize that, but who knows anymore.
A great example of how multiple timelines -shouldn't- be done. Please don't ever do anything like this, Game Freak. I mean, you did mess up the XY-ORAS connection, but at least you didn't invalidate anything major from the older timelines.
See my posts in the movie thread (I'd link you if I could).
The movie isn't even close to a celebration of the original series... Seems like a way to promote Kanto sequels to me, with Ash getting a reboot for the hell of it. I honestly expect Brock and Misty to be in their 20s now, which would explain the odd replacements.
It figures that some people would complain about Sun and Moon getting a third version over XY. I won't deny that XY are the games that "need" it more, but this move is not about "fixing" anything. It is childish to see it that way.
Sun and Moon are obviously easier to upgrade than XY are, and a lot more people are interested in them. That's all there is to it.
For some reason I can't reply here or post anything too long. How do you do it?
Anyway, I still think that a plot revolving around a deadly epidemic would be a very refreshing change of pace. Perhaps Lusamine ends up spreading her disease unintentionally? Maybe her symptoms will be even worse in Stars.
To be honest, while I somewhat liked the idea of using Necrozma in Kanto rather than Alola, I can do without an "Ultra Beast threatens a region" plot again. They can take Lillie and Lusamine's story in a different direction... after tweaking the story we've already seen.
Having to wait until 2020 for games that could actually bring something new to the table is a scary thought. 2021 might sound like a better fit for a Kanto/Johto return than 2018 chronologically speaking, but waiting that long would put a lot of potential to waste. Game Freak shouldn't take it for granted that people that started with Generation I will still have the same interest in the series as they do now.
I am honestly worried now. If Game Freak are resorting to a third version, DP remakes in 2018 wouldn't be surprising. And that would make a generation that started unpredictably wind up fairly similar to Generation III and Generation IV, ignoring the Switch transition (which isn't going to make anything better content-wise).
