    DAMN this thread is a nice place to be immediately post-announcement!

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

    I will never stop wishing for that Platypus water starter. I know it was a fake by a talented artist. I KNOW, OK?! I WILL NEVER. STOP. WISHING. ON A MORE SERIOUS ... oops, sorry... On a more serious note, I will legitimately lose my shit if there are new regional variants OR new Megas. If...

    Man the last few days of this thread have been a total rollercoaster! I had just come to terms with the idea that Pokémon Day was going to be fruitless and then out of nowhere BAM! I am so hyped!

    ‘Assbasket’ is the best thing I’ve read in such a long time.

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

    The cultural, ethnic, architectural and geographical diversity across Europe is mind blowing. Hoping that Game Freak don’t revisit Europe purely because we’ve had Kalos is a little short sighted, in my opinion. Each to their own, of course! But I always cringe a little when I see Europe spoken...

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

    Hmm. In a subtextual kind of way, all Pokémon games encourage love over hate. Good over evil. Open-mindedness over judgement. It’s realy all one and the same. I’m not sure how encouraging love can be considered ‘preachy’ but that’s just my opinion. I saw someone mention Pokémon Love and Pokémon...

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

    Absolutely. I would LOVE for there to be new Megas and new regional variants introduced. I feel like it’s almost a guarantee that Gen VIII won’t introduce more of both... which makes me think they won’t introduce more of either... which makes me a little sad. Both of those concepts are so huge...

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

    Having read the past couple of pages I just wanted to speak up for Gen V lol! Gen V is my favourite gen so far. By quite some distance, actually. It introduced my number one favourite Pokémon, the entirely new Dex made Unova feel so far away from the previous regions (the intended effect) and...

    Similarly, I still believe the titles will be Pokémon Plus and Pokémon Minus but have nothing to do with the Plus and Minus ‘leak’ Just purely because Game Freak went with X and Y for the first 3DS game (definitely no coincidence) and Plus and Minus ties in nicely with the Switch Joy Cons.

    It also allows the player to attach their own choice of personality and character to NPCs. It can be pretty jarring to hear a voice attributed to someone who in your head, sounded completely different.

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

    It’ll be a cold, cold day in hell before I let anyone call me ‘Big R’ ... God... those nicknames in XY were the cringiest moment of any Pokémon game (for me). Like, actual physical shuddering upon reading them. All joking aside, I do agree that being able to choose a nickname for the purpose...

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

    Mhm this is kind of my point though. I don’t understand the argument against an entire new Pokédex because all people ever say is ‘I didn’t like the whole Unova Dex’ - that’s not really a valid argument. The quantity =/= quality debate can be applied to literally every regional Dex because no...

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

    Yeah that’s a really good point - at least being able to identify and avoid the same old same old in the overworld would eliminate the disappointment of running into your 17’846th wild... Nidoran, or something.

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

    Yup... can’t beat the excitement of loading up a brand new Pokémon game and running into a Pidgey for your first wild encounter... All joking aside, it’s obviously a very subjective thing. If there are no Pokémon out of 100 or so brand new Pokémon that appeal to you, that’s extremely...

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

    Totally agree. I’ve never fully understood the argument against this to be honest. There are now so many games in which all current Pokémon can be obtained, I’d love if every first game in a new gen had only brand new Pokémon available - at least until post game (at which point you could then...

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

    If you re-read my comment you’ll see I’m not bashing ‘speculation’ - that would be odd in a speculation thread. My point is that actually, not everything can be allowed to come under the umbrella of ‘speculation’, surely? The thread is for discussing leaks and rumours, not whether it’s more...

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

    Jeeez first it was Bible passages and now it’s talk of colonization. I swear I’m not trying to play the role of buzzkill here but linking potential new Pokémon regions to existing Pokémon regions via things like colonization, wars, religion... it’s sooooo far beyond just speculation, it’s a...

    You mean you DON’T have the 217 Alternate Form/Gender Variant Pokémon available to you?!! It took too long. I loathe myself.

    Doesn’t this kind of answer itself? It’s happened in the past, therefore there’s a chance it could happen again..?
