    Speculation Gen 9 Predictions (Development predictions, New Regions, Version names)

    There is absolutely no way that they are going to try to stretch Gen 8 out for another four years. Not happening.

    Speculation Gen 9 Predictions (Development predictions, New Regions, Version names)

    I am betting either Legends DLC, Gen 9, or both.

    Speculation Gen 9 Predictions (Development predictions, New Regions, Version names)

    You're kind of right, if you take 02's epilogue into account, but the specific message in Last Evolution was "children have potential and adults don't" and the timing was like "we're taking your kid things away so you can focus on being an adult." So while 02 does take away the sting, the movie...

    Speculation Gen 9 Predictions (Development predictions, New Regions, Version names)

    Very much no. The difference between Pokemon and Digimon is that Digimon Adventure actually ended at some point while Pokemon has held on as a continuous thing. There's no revisiting a series from your childhood because the Pokemon anime never ended. And while it was great to revisit Digimon...

    Speculation Gen 9 Predictions (Development predictions, New Regions, Version names)

    It was a soft reboot. They were trying to put everyone back at square one for those games.

    Speculation Gen 9 Predictions (Development predictions, New Regions, Version names)

    They're not going to throw away 30 years of world building. Plus the last reboot attempt wasn't well received, that's why we haven't gotten another region dominated with only new pokemon like Unova.

    Speculation Gen 9 Predictions (Development predictions, New Regions, Version names)

    No, I'm saying that Legends is out right now so if your kid's birthday falls between now and November, you're more likely to be getting them Legends, not telling them that they don't get a birthday present if they want Gen 9 for Christmas. I'm actually ignoring BDSP's existence because they...

    Speculation Gen 9 Predictions (Development predictions, New Regions, Version names)

    There's nothing concrete about those DLC talks, though. If DLC comes out, then yes, I would expect Gen 9 to be next year. If there isn't, though, then Gen 9 this year is feasible. Legends may not get the holiday sales this year if Gen 9 is announced but it would get a year's worth of birthdays...

    Speculation Gen 9 Predictions (Development predictions, New Regions, Version names)

    I don't know why you guys are making the gap between Legends' release and November sound shorter than it is. Same year does not mean short gap when it's opposite ends of the year. It is very nearly a whole year apart, like most of pokemon's releases, so a Gen 9 release this year is feasible, and...

    Ideas are infinite, and they can't really look at anyone's fakemon anyway. (took forever to find this again)

    Speculation Gen 9 Predictions (Development predictions, New Regions, Version names)

    Do people really go "Oh another game is coming out in 10-11 months, I better not buy this one now and wait almost a year for the next game to release?" Might as well do that indefinitely, there'll always be another one released in a year. And yes, as good as Game Freak can get, because they...

    Speculation Gen 9 Predictions (Development predictions, New Regions, Version names)

    It wouldn't be out until the end of the year anyway? It's not like we'd be able to play Gen 9 the minute it's announced. We'd have nearly a full year to enjoy Legends Arceus while we wait, that's plenty of time. Even better if there's cross-promotion.

    Well, only until Pokemon Day, then it's fair game.

    These ones- They're Sun and Moon's signature colors. There's also a palm tree there, I'm noticing. The Sun/Moon tease was strong with this one.

    Speculation Gen 9 Predictions (Development predictions, New Regions, Version names)

    I think if there's a hint in any of the games, it's probably as subtle as the blue and yellow cushions in ORAS, in which case no one will find it until after the fact.

    I can't wait for the region based on Nashville.

    For the record, and I guess any other plush-based guesses as to what the next region will be, the plush featured next to Masuda in the photo are... Top Shelf Pikachu Around the World British / London Guard Pikachu Pikachu Around the World Netherlands Pikachu Pikachu Around the World Chinese /...

    Might want to look again. The China one is right there.

    Speculation Gen 9 Predictions (Development predictions, New Regions, Version names)

    I think people are focusing too much on that Dutch Pikachu and blatantly ignoring the fact that there's a Chinese one right there in the set as well. If they were supposed to be hints at upcoming regions, where's French and Hawaiian Pikachu? Who knows what the significance of those countries...
