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

    I agree because it takes close to 90% of the actual direct on stuff we already know LOL

    Do you think they will do a past gens montage like with the other pokemon directs where it takes most of the direct time or will we have a more meaty reveal this time ?

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

    I personally want them to modernise and spice it up a bit. Pokemon has gotten a lil mundane lately especially compared to the other JRPG franchises. I wouldnt be opposed to a BOTW shakeup where a lot of the core features stay, but lil tweaks are here and there to bring it in line with the...

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

    Im curious what percentage of the direct is allocated to Gen 8 and its reveal. Xy only got 1.32 mins out of a 11 pokemon direct and SM got 20ish seconds out of a 6 and a half min pokemon direct. Because theres 3 pokeballs in the direct image, I hope its a XY like reveal where we see the...

    Japanese is correct. Has an element that acts as the ' of ン, in this case a meteor, in SM it was a z-crystal. Has the pokéball as º of ポ and has POKéMON written on top. Will have to wait until a reveal or this gets debunked The only iffy thing to me is the thick cardboard cover but with the...

    None of the postgame events in Johto are worth revisiting, the only is taking the magnet train back and fourth to fly to the Pokémon league or collecting eggs. Although I think the new safari zone / battle frontier was the real meat to Johto. I wouldn’t be opposed to all the Japanese regions...

    I’ve never been a fan of multiple regions, not just because Gamefreak in general don’t seem keen because of the various issues, but imo the moment you travel to the second or more regions, it feels like your initial journey was pointless as you’ll never go back outside of some minor postgame...

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

    The modern era has complete drought periods, no word or real communication from the company for months on end then you get bombarded with a much needed reveal which is good, then you get more drought periods after the initial tease followed by a season of constant in your face updates until...

    After 11 that pretty much kills any Pokémon day reveal / direct yeah as it would be the 26th then.

    Shading is not consistent with GF orientation, lines are wobbly like done in paint and the Japanese text is a bit off. Gamefreak does not make these inconsistencies

    The pokemon marketing schedule is honestly really out of whack sometimes like in this situation. There's countless ways it could be improved and they often seem to repeat the same mistakes over and over.

    Did they advertise Xy and SM months after their reveal in Japan and other countries ? I dont ever recall seeing any advertisements online. I dont understand the significance of the LGPE advertisement now, unless it's meant to connect with the mewtwo movie trailer next week ?

    Think Serebii mentioned that theres a new Mewtwo movie and Detective Pikachu trailer next week, and theres rumours of some app or something for the Pokemon anime on the 27th, wouldnt be surprised if thats just the big news we are getting.

    Its possible they do know about them, but the majority of Americans are super confused on this topic from personal experience and when we explored those leaks way back.
