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

    Yes, it is astonishing to consider!! Basically it has been an additional 20 years, and then, with the wise but very secretive method of announcing the development of the games over the course of two years, it has added almost the equivalent of a century somehow! :) :)

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

    It is very strange to think back to how uncertain everything was yesterday, and even earlier this morning!! :) :) I remember checking the pokemon_cojp twitter around 10:30 their time, after waking up and just seeing the Sakaki/Giovanni card image, and it really seemed like there was not going...

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

    It is quite possible that Gen 8 will have all new icon/menu sprites for all of the Pokémon!! I have a feeling they will look really amazing.

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

    I hope if there are new fishing mechanics that a difficulty setting would apply to them!! :) It is interesting to consider how all forms of water and all connected activities might be expanded upon in Gen 8!!

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

    I am very, very cautiously curious~excited now (maybe +.00022 %) for the a chance of there being two regions and six distinct starters: This simply because of Nintendo as media creators in general having this now very famed penchant for setting something up to look one way and then having there...

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

    Yes :) I guess it would require the two versions to either be separate regions or time periods for it to really make sense!

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

    I do wonder about the three Pokéballs, is it possible that they have decided to have 3 starters unique to each version?? I don't think that would be necessary, but it would be really special, and something they may decide to create eventually! Otherwise I am also wondering if there could be...

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

    I am glad they are still going to have Pokemon Directs!! The different format of reveal perhaps was just for Let's Go after all. I feel like it is not possible to even be slightly prepared for whatever will be presented!!

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

    Yes, this seems encouraging also :) This is from the reply section, from a post of theirs on February 23 which is just a link to "The final countdown" song on youtube This may be an accurate translation: Let's Go was clearly not bad, must stop:) But yes, we're talking about a Gen 8 core RPG:)

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

    Hmm!! Perhaps Gen 8 will have already been revealed and the press event will include additional information that won't be released publically just yet. He did mention the non disclosure agreements.

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

    Yes, they did know of Pokemon Quest's visual style, that is good to remember! It could be that the private press conference, followed by a trailer being released, and news articles, is what they are going to do now in place of "Pokemon Direct" for new game reveals?

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

    Then there are also even the two (or more?) earlier Gen 8 threads..!! As far as the actual topic at hand, there have been no posts so far today on the pokemon_cojp twitter, yesterday there was one which was introducing the Pokemon Shirts! :unsure::) It is fun to watch and wait at this point...

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

    I would think this would be more likely if Detective Pikachu itself had not been revealed yet! Game Freak, Creatures, Pokemon Company, Nintendo, and everyone else involved have been working on Gen 8 for many years now! I think they would be fine with allowing their creation to perhaps...

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

    This is the most recent post from pokemon_cojp on twitter!! I think there is some awareness of there being overall an eventually very positive result by lightly confusing, remaining rather ambiguous about what else could happen in a day or so! Nintendo's current style for their biggest...

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

    I would say that the timing of the Sun & Moon Direct announcement may not correspond to this year! But additionally, they may even choose to simply release a trailer outside of a Direct! It could be a complete surprise that way. Or they might even release the trailer first, and then have a...

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

    Yes! :) The region videos that they have created, and their timetable, are very specific! Unlike last year they are also counting up rather than down! Everyone who is working together for Pokemon Day, and Gen 8, would not want to be interpreted as being misleading to fans, even if the idea to...

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

    It would be startling if there is actually a demo made available when it is announced, similar to what happened with some of the games in the main Nintendo Direct..!! We would have to hope that all of the full game content was removed, and this time it probably would be!

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

    Well, it was reassuring to check and see that the main Nintendo Direct was announced only one day before! An announcement might be posted tomorrow morning in Japan, which would basically be just before, or during, this time of day tomorrow!

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

    Hmm!! I was considering the very abstract artworks that have appeared about Satellite/Comet and am a bit curious. While I don't think whatever that is would be this: eventually (maybe not in Gen 8) it might make sense for our main character to either be able to buy, or already possess, an...

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

    It is already the 25th in Japan!! I think at the very least that we are just a day 1/2 or so away from at least a new Pokemon being revealed, and, hopefully a more complete reveal!
