    Australia might be too big. It'd certainly be larger than any existing region. The topmost New Zealand map could be improved a bit with additional routes joining the cities to be less linear. I don't know a lot about New Zealand geography but there is likely a better balance between those two maps.

    Hmm... I'm not sure they will, looking at the lists. Blue had the Meowth, Vulpix and Sandshrew lines as exclusives, all of which have Alolan variants now, while Red had no such exclusive Pokemon. It doesn't balance out as well now.

    It is online I think, I misunderstood what you meant. It's an option for filling up the Pokedex other than the absent GTS and Wonder Trade, but presumably not if you don't have paid online.

    What of friend-code based trading? We have a trade section here, don't we?

    Game Freak considers Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee to be mainline games, but not 'core' RPG games like Sun and Moon or the games coming next year. It's unclear whether Pokemon Go will have influence on games after the Let's Go games, but the core RPGs next year will not have Go influence, at least.

    Is that... a Scizor-like Pinsir evolution? I wonder why some of these were changed or removed in the end. There had to have been some logic behind it.

    Many are. Many are not. Many sit on the fence at the moment.

    I don't mind going back to Sinnoh sometime, but having a return to Alola, return to Kanto, then a return to Sinnoh all in a row does not sit that well with me.

    If the core series is going to take anything from Go I would want it to be the menu/interface design. Maybe it looks bland to some people but I really like the simplicity of it. It looks clean.

    One thing I am actually looking forward to with these is hearing new versions of the classic original music coming out of something newer than a Game Boy Advance...

    Is that... south of Cerulean City, near the daycare?

    I would still be okay with the future Kanto idea that came up during leaks season but it'll be good to get away from the idea of going back there again. I want to see somewhere new. Somewhere that isn't Kanto or Sinnoh or Alola.

    Why does it matter if they are considered mainline and not spin-offs, other than for marketing purposes?

    The Let's Go games aren't for me, but I came out of this whole thing a lot less disappointed than I thought I'd be for a Kanto-only game with Go integration. I'm optimistic about Pokemon's future. Graphically they look great, so Gen 8 should be even better, and if the newer Pokemon aren't going...

    As a bridge from Pokemon Go-only players to the core series RPGs... some people will want to cross it, some people won't, and I think Game Freak will be happy with that.

    Kind of weird choice to have people way over that age in the advertisement then...

    I don't care for this at all, it's everything I dreaded, but if core RPGs are still coming that's good enough for me. I can do without these.

    Damn it, I'm going to be at work. At least I can check my phone at oh wait no I can't, no signal. Life is suffering. (I'll probably live.)

    Do the Build-A-Bear people even know anything other than 'there will be a reveal of some sort on that date'? The same thing the rest of us know?
