Hope they get megas first and maybe Gigantamax all together... also gen 2 starters should be in game and get upgrade after all this time. Maybe Megas for 4 generation and Gigantamax via item for 2 generation?

I just rewatched the trailer and those are most definitely Articuno, Moltres and Zapdos.
They are so close to the actual things that I sincerely doubt they're new Pokémon.

Unless they decide to make XD01 canon and these are his weird off-spring trio.
I'm pretty certain that the voiceover said "new Pokemon" while it showed them off so I think there's still a chance that these are new Pokemon, as unlikely as that seems.

Though having those three birds be shadow variants of the regulars would be great in my opinion.

Why do u people want a gen 4 remake??? They will never happen! I talked to TPCI and they said no gen IV remake b/c they don’t have the technology to make a remastered Sinnoh game

Well, the Orre games don't contradict canon (alien names aside), so who knows if the whole thing happened?

We're getting new regis, not new forms of the regis. And why so hung up over the so-called Sugimori art? Why would we not get official art of the Pokemon or characters?
The artwork is a help when creating the in-game region vibe so I prefer Sugimori's. As for the Regis, you're correct, but even so, why now and in this way? We had ASOR and we'll most likely have Sinnoh remakes so to shove this content into SwSh seems like a new type of pandering...of the Hoenn type.

You sure are over the top.

I don't know what's worse, Gardenia's constant talk of game freak being greedy or your conspiracy theory-esque posts that make almost no sense.

Edit: Not, you Kyriaki, you're fine. Though you did ninja me so... I'm kidding.

Yeah, i can confirm this. My uncle works at Gamefreak and he says Sinnoh is too hard to remake in current hardware. Masuda said technology needs to advance at least a 1000 years before Gen 4 is remade.

I don't think including new Regis is Hoenn pandering. They don't have any nostalgic connection to the original RSE, there's only two of them (it's not like all new expansion pass Pokemon are related to Hoenn Pokemon), and I don't think they will be included in any sort of "REMEMBER HOENN? REMEMBER YOUR CHILDHOOD?" thing.

I think the new Regis are more of a case of GameFreak expanding on a pre-established legendary trio, similar to what they did in DPPt with Regigigas.

There appears to be no sights of Pokémon Direct on Pokémon Day. If this is the case, remakes are likely out of question for 2020.

There will just be a showcase of a new Mythical on that day. This is already been confirmed.
