    Official Pre-Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield Speculation & Leaks thread

    We all said the same thing about USUM "Oh that Rockruff is just a preview, surely they'll reveal Walking Pokémon later, they're just hiding it, we know the walk cycles are in the data..."

    worst starters yet graphics aren't as charming as Town or even LGPE following pokemon removed with no excuse this time, no overworld encounters either can't even give us the actual release date might consider saving your money for SharpSword and SturdyShield

    To be fair, it is possible to fill up that seven minutes with talking/“summarizing the series” But yes ideally it will be an XY-style trailer

    I'm not terribly familiar with the franchise but they do look a lot like Sonic and Shadow plus "Chaos Control" is a term from that series good effort but traaaaaash

    In the originals, sure, I guess there's kind of a ceiling on what you can realistically keep doing in Johto before getting bored, but the remakes added a fair amount. I guess it's in the eye of the beholder, but in addition to the Safari Zone and Battle Frontier, you also had the Pokéathlon, the...

    I don't think it feels totally pointless, especially not in Johto's case as there are still lots of little daily events worth traveling back for - but I do agree that the multi-region idea in general is fraught with issues and would probably just shortchange all of them. A singular focus is much...

    Not to mention, the big R in the background R is the 18th letter of the alphabet. Today is the 26th. 26 - 8 (as in Gen 8) equals 18. HMmmmmMmM mmmmmm............. Technically, it was whoever decided to release Red & Green on that day in Japan 23 years go

    Well, for Sun & Moon, the February reveal was just the titles/logos and a few glimpses of (ultimately irrelevant) concept art, and then there was nothing in March, and in April they just yanked everyone's chains by having Corocoro show the game boxes with blank artwork. Our first burst of...

    Official Pre-Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield Speculation & Leaks thread

    Well normally they have Mythical Pokémon that can serve as extended promotion; the Diancie and Marshadow reveal trailers both came months after the games' release dates much like this one. LGPE doesn't have a Mythical like that because Meltan is already out, but there is a Mewtwo movie coming up...

    Official Pre-Pokémon Sword & Pokémon Shield Speculation & Leaks thread

    Well, I would think these anime-centric travel brochure videos are more than likely leading up to the Twitch stream of anime episodes that starts on the 27th (US) As far as we know, the Treehouse thing isn't even going to be visible to anyone who isn't physically there, so I don't think that's...
