I just rewatched the trailer and those are most definitely Articuno, Moltres and Zapdos.
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.
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.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?
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.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.
