Honestly, I really don't feel too good about the upcoming future of the games. Objectively looking at what's been shown, I can't feel anything anymore from what was shown @e3 other than disappointment.
I read what you have so far and I like it! I like that it features Ethan, Lyra, and Kris. I also like that there's not much focus on battles, since that's pretty much the bread and butter of the games and anime. I look forward to the updates!
I think I can rest easy now. It looks like the main reason there were so many USUM shills before is because of Game Freak's lies regarding how different the games were going to be. After the datamine, I'm seeing a different side to people.
