Yeah, I just meant that we have a better shot of at least one of them.
Given that it's a tournament style, I guess they'll either have only 8 completing the Gym Challenge, or that there's still a Victory Road-like route to stop the rest. Given how new this format is, and how little they said...
About the overview trailer, I think we got clear shots of two characters in the Champion's Cup.
The male character is clearer in the trailer then the female one. I do hope in any case they're not random trainers. I'd like them to be other rivals, but I doubt we'd have more then Hope, Bede...
If the early stage can be found in Raid battles with a sign indicating they can Gigantamax later on, it’d be great, but I’m personally skeptical.
Gigantamax are supposed to be hard to find. If there’s the chance of finding them also for earlier stages, it’d reduce a bit their rarity,
To be clear, I meant that I do that in my first run, not in all of my playthrough, but I do enjoy the growing/evolution aspect a lot.
It’s normal that people have different preferences and play stiles, though.
But it'll be avalable in the final stage. You won't find a Raid Caterpie with the ability of Gigantamaxing, but a Gigantamax Butterfree.
About your question, let's say I want Tyranitar in my team, and I catch Larvitar. While the final stage would be available in the late game, I'd still use...
The G-max in question might not appear easily/before the end of the main plot, or too late into it.
Also, for me, the G-max would be already in its final stage, and I prefer to catch the members of my party in my story play trough in their first stage.
That’s why I won’t likely use Gigantamax in main story, unless the starters have one.
I love to take Pokémon in their initial stage and making them grow and evolve, and we can’t do that with Gigantamax ones.
I think breeding might be a way to gain Gigantamax Pokémon in their early stage.
I’m quite sure that in the wild, normally, we won’t be able to catch any Pokémon with Gigantamax abilities or hidden abilities. Those are going to be reserved for Raid battles.
Both are great news. Expecially the latter if it means a big number of new Pokémon is in, but having a npc that you can use to delete and relearn moves in every Pokémon center is also nice. Having different npcs in different cities with all those different functions was a tedious and old system...
I think it was simply referring to the thought behind developing the games, not necessarily post game content.
Keep in mind that the hardest rated raid battles are specifically built to be hard for veteran players, and they’d require competitive items as well as a good coordination from the...
Masuda talks about the criticism about the graphics, mentioning the Wild Areas, and that are a lot of connections in the background. Not sure what...
Yes, although not in the interview I posted.
As a side note, the interview (the same that previewed the game for Everyeye last week), will do a live stream tomorrow to talk about the interview, so if there’ll be any additional info, or hints towards something, I’ll post it here.
It’s a video interview from Everyeye with Masuda. The answers are generally fairly generic, since Masuda didn’t seem keen in...
I’m honestly not sure if there’s a popular grass starter, in the same sense Greninja and Charizard are (Or GF believes they are).
Assuming they won’t go for Decidueye, my guess would be Sceptile, although I wouldn’t rule out Torterra or Serperior. Meganium and Chesnaugh, I’d rule out.
