    SPOILERS: Official Let's Go Pikachu/Let's Go Eevee Discussion Thread

    I'm struggling to find what's so different about this game. As far as I can see after today's footage, this is just Pokemon Yellow with changes to wild encounters and stat growth. What other overhauls are in place to warrant phenomenal blockbuster sales and the birthing of a new series? Pokemon...

    Official Pre-Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield Speculation & Leaks thread

    SM sold almost exactly as much as XY did three years later.

    SPOILERS: Official Let's Go Pikachu/Let's Go Eevee Discussion Thread

    That's not really how it works. Not releasing LGPE wouldn't have enabled them to release Generation 8 this year because according to them, neither started development until around SM's release and new generations always take three years to make. Keep in mind that three-year generations are...

    Buy or Pass?

    At one point, I was going to buy the game for all those spins, but then it sank in that it will almost certainly have zero longevity once I beat it...

    Official Pre-Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield Speculation & Leaks thread

    I actually saw some some doubt that Gen 8 would look better than LGPE. Good to see that belief squashed.

    I would hope that Gen 8 is so much better that all the Let's Go owners buy it in addition to the traditional fans...

    Official Pre-Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield Speculation & Leaks thread

    @KrisiChiki One thing they really need to consider is making the GTS free. Paying to complete the Pokedex alone? I guess a counterargument is that you (or if you're a kid, your parents) paid for your Switch and game, so $4-35 should be nothing, but it still feels odd.

    Space World 1997 demo for Pokemon Gold leaked

    The fact that Ho-Oh was used for both the Gold and Silver demo intros tells me there was some information either scrubbed or yet to be added. I don't know what out of the original 100 could've substituted Lugia and if so, why it wasn't in the Silver intro.

    Space World 1997 demo for Pokemon Gold leaked

    Thinking rationally instead of just going with what ERAsaur thinks, I don't see much of a music theme to the Kurusu line. It's up in the air as to whether any of the latest Pokemon draw from this scrapped batch.

    Space World 1997 demo for Pokemon Gold leaked

    I'm referring to how the third evolution's name has the word "aria" in it. The speculation comes from here: The Space World 1997 demo for Pokemon Gold has leaked online I'm pretty sure Kurusu is indeed at least partially a seal.

    Space World 1997 demo for Pokemon Gold leaked

    As my favorite Water-types, the Popplio line being potentially based on the original Totodile line is definitely music to my ears. I'd love to see this demo completed. The beta Gold and Silver looks like a different game altogether, but I suppose that's not uncommon.

    Space World 1997 demo for Pokemon Gold leaked

    Yeah, I happened upon this the instant it leaked, and it's a tad sour that some if not most of these designs will never be used. I do look forward to seeing art of all these though.

    Official Pre-Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield Speculation & Leaks thread

    I'm guessing 2020 will be off, because they shouldn't be developing anything else but Gen 8 in 2019, and I strongly believe no $60 Switch version should ever take just one year to make. They called the 2019 game "all-new". And like I've been saying before, there's a certain standard that new...

    Official Pre-Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield Speculation & Leaks thread

    In the same breath, Ohmori said that they "will do their best to make a game that lives up to the expectations". That's just Masuda's personal view on a game he may not even be is not directing and more of a "it's not Zelda" statement.

    Official Pre-Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield Speculation & Leaks thread

    But Nintendo confirmed here that the E3 announcement was referring to the 2019 game. And didn't Game Freak say that it was "challenging" to make the game and that there are "high expectations" for it in reference to the game Nintendo teased? Surely, they weren't talking about Let's Go.
