• Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.
  • Hey guys! Have you heard? We now have popup
    Yes, Popups!
    messages for your forum posts. Learn more about it here!
  • Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
  • Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

    SPECULATION: Generation VI: The Future

    Guys, take the reveal as you will, but there are four important things to consider: - Volcanion is being treated as secondary to a new Pokemon, which doesn't need to happen during the middle of a generation. Lucario was revealed after Deoxys' movie with no other Hoenn legendaries to star, and...

    SPECULATION: Generation VI: The Future

    @Platinum Lucario Sorry if this sounds like it screws over your entire theory, but in addition to gathering all the Cells, the two Cores have to merge to become Complete Forme. I believe this was leaked by one of the anime writers and possibly stated elsewhere. Additionally, Complete Forme has...

    SPECULATION: Generation VI: The Future

    I would like to challenge this claim. What's your take on the Strange Souvenir? Do you believe it was referencing an NX generation on the first day of a four-year 3DS generation or do you believe it has no meaning? Like it or not, Game Freak had a reason for including it in XY, and it would be...

    SPECULATION: Generation VI: The Future

    Would you mind showing me where in my link he said anything about order of releases? Here's what I linked (go look at the link yourself and you'll find this is the entire quote and thus not taken out of context): "For the Pokémon brand, and for Game Freak, our first and foremost goal and top...

    SPECULATION: Generation VI: The Future

    Notice that all I've been saying is that the title wouldn't be Z and the supposed game would be more individual than a typical third version. Don't really know why anyone would argue against this. I imagine this post means you're more open to it?

    SPECULATION: Generation VI: The Future

    I don't know what to tell you. Even if I agree with your counterargument, I can't believe we got to a level where the rational mindset is to distrust what people say.

    SPECULATION: Generation VI: The Future

    You're referring to a different interview. The context of this quote is complete and absolutely means that just as Gray was something the fans expected, Z would be too.

    He was saying that updating games via remakes is more preferable to porting them to VC. Red and Green were already remade.

    SPECULATION: Generation VI: The Future

    I know you immediately followed this sentence by suggesting it may not be "Z," but please reread. "Everyone was really expecting Grey, so it was exciting to come up with something fans really didn’t expect."

    SPECULATION: Generation VI: The Future

    The big thing that everyone seems to be missing is that Masuda actually used the name "Z." That means it won't be the name of the theoretical game, people.

    SPECULATION: Generation VI: The Future

    Guys, come up with a better name. Zygarde Complete Forme doesn't actually look like a Z. Here's the link: Pokémon’s Developers On Virtual Console Absences, Twitch, And Super Smash Bros. There's actually literally no other context but what I posted. You're thinking of something else, and...

    SPECULATION: Generation VI: The Future

    Is it just me or did we suddenly fall for the Gray trap all over again? If we did, this will change your mind: "Fans assumed after the release of Pokémon Black and White that we’d see something like a Pokémon Grey. And after Pokémon X and Y, fans were expecting something like a Pokémon Z. Will...

    SPECULATION: Generation VI: The Future

    There is nothing to overread. They're not going to say that Z is predictable and that they want to be surprising and then turn around and release Z. B2W2 sold more than every third version (except Yellow), and they would've sold millions more had they not been DS games. In other words, if they...

    They're not going to regress to a third version unless they want less money. Please don't suggest that Masuda was being misleading.

    SPECULATION: Generation VI: The Future

    A third version is completely predictable no matter what its name is, and Game Freak regularly says that they want to surprise us. The least you should expect is a prequel.

    SPECULATION: Generation VI: The Future

    I'm talking about an interview conducted in October 2014. Masuda used the name Z in October 2014 and called it too predictable. The minimum expectation should be a third version with a different name. Additionally, Complete Forme is by far not shaped like a Z. Normal Kyurem had a gray body and...

    SPECULATION: Generation VI: The Future

    Is Z seriously the consensus right now? You're literally saying that they would in fact reference the name of a future game a year ahead of its announcement. If your minimum belief is a third version with a different name, please put quotation marks around Z.

    Game Freak didn't release games in 2011. The localization teams did, and if it wasn't for B2W2's shorter localization period, they would've been released in 2013 outside of Japan (or December 2012, which is still 21 months since BW). There has been a two-year break in every generation.

    SPECULATION: Generation VI: The Future

    I really hope that whatever game is planned for next year isn't released until the end of the year. Otherwise, it would basically mean they're done with two-year breaks and every game from now on will have as much content as XY and ORAS. The supposed Zygarde form being silhouetted this early is...

    SPECULATION: Generation VI: The Future

    Is Zygarde really going to completely change species despite being based on Niohoggr? That clearer image makes me no longer able to see it slithering.
