    Sweden is close and that's most likely Scotland. Feel a little disappointed Wales does not seem to be included but I appreciate I was never going to get everything I want.

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

    I am just so overwhelmed with joy and pride that we are the host region for the next set of games. It's been obvious for a while but to still have it officially confirmed is next level stuff. I can't wait to invite all Pokemon fans to the Galar region later on this year. First time on a home...

    Assuming it's a cross between Galant and Valor, they could have easily gone for Galor as well.

    Or team Remoan, a group trying get Galar to no longer be it's own region and submit to rule from Kalos and share a league with them.

    As @Freak-Pokemon said, if nothing is revealed on Pokemon day that will prove the tweet was nothing. If games are revealed, and they are something royal/regal or something to do with bugs (bug poision legend) that will prove the tweet was a hint. Also 27th February in Japan is 26th February in...

    Unless they ditch the 3 stage limit? They've ditched a ton of other rules lately, why not that one. 3 is an arbitrary number. Legends can breed and have eggs, legends can evolve, mythicals can be found without an event, why not add a 4th stage, mega evolution already pushed the envelope with a...

    I'd like that, but Alolan Raichu unfortunately complicates matters.

    I don;t think so because you need the gym badges to use HMs in the earlier games, those requirements were removed for LGPE. So you can use Surf or whatever its called as soon as its obtained you don't need the gym badge from Fuschia like in previous games. Kanto in the Johto revisit is also...

    It's really not hard, they did similar with VS Seeker and the easy mode/regular mode/hard mode in B2W2. They've even hinted at this in the Origins anime. The gym leader uses a team based on how many other badges you have.

    Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee already allow you to challenge gyms 3,4,5,6,7 in any order. That can easily be expanded in a Gen 8 title.

    That screenshot of Lickitung from Detective Pikachu is a pretty good case against more realism in Pokemon in my opinion lol. That thing gave me nightmares.

    Why not? They've already done super moves and super stat boosts, why not super types? And it'd be limited to the box legends.

    I'm sure it's not beyond the skill of GameFreak to code it differently. Remember the ??? type

    It would only be 2 legends, well you could have a 3rd to make a trio, a Rock/Rock, super effective against both, or more likely Electric/Electric (neutral to both). Imagine Electric/Electric with Levitate ;) :P

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

    Just had a really cool idea for this. The legendaries could be the first dual same type. Aka Fire/Fire and Ice/Ice They would be the embodiment of the hottest flames, and the coldest frosts. The mechanics would work with them basically getting a double STAB. So rather than a 50% boost for...

    Personally I don't count Metagross, all the other Pseudos are "Draconic" even Tyranitar. Metagross doesn't have a 4x weakness either. Hydreigon didn't when it was revealed but that has since been retcon'd with the fairy type.
