    Redefining a "Generation"

    Since the release of Sun and Moon every game has introduced atleast 1 new pokemon, except for BDSP. I think as a fan base we need a new definition for what starts and what ends a generation. The old definition: From gen 1 to gen 6 a new generation was simple, new pokemon, can trade with every...

    Your "too old for Pokemon" phase

    In the early 2000s many kids having grown up on RBY and GSC were saying they were too old for the games, and that Pokemon was a fad soon to die out. Gen 3 rolled around and while not as succesful it survived and over time many did eventually come back for nostalgia or maybe just downloaded Go...

    Are the two sinnoh games a test?

    So as we have known for months now we are getting two sinnoh games. One a traditional remake with all the bells and whistles from the original, probably with a coat of Masudas perspective about modern games and the mobile market. The other game is something fans, online anyway, have been...

    Speculation The future of the chibi style

    With lets go and BDSP we've seen that game freak wants to experiment with art styles. No main series game on the switch looks the exact same. Do you think chibi style will stay to remakes ala lets go and bdsp? It works well for old regions so that they can keep their layout. Or should game freak...

    The platinum episode speculation

    So if the delta episode tells us anything they aren't going to include platinums story in the main game (only real story change being the climax anyway) so we are likely to get something for giratina in the post game. How do you guys think it will play out? There is a good set up for this...

    Could Gamefreak have figured out how to make gold and sliver transfer to ruby and sapphire?

    As we all know the gen 2 games can't connect with the gen 3 games which sparked frlg which sparked the whole remake trail we've found ourselves on. My question is were game freaks hands really tied? If GSC can transfer to gen 7 games why not gen 3 games? The gameboy advance was backwards...

    The replacement of Red and Blue?

    So as we saw from the tree house playthrough our rival has been replaced by Trace and clearly the trainer character isn't Red, now this remake is feeling off. If it for nostalgia why replace the most iconic rival with any friendly guy? Is gamefreak worried that Blue seems to much like a...

Lacked a battle frontier or most features introduced in emerald, and comes up short with its...
