• Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.
  • Hey guys! Have you heard? We now have popup
    Yes, Popups!
    messages for your forum posts. Learn more about it here!
  • Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
  • Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

If the remakes do happen I hope the National Dex returns, but seeing as the Bank is getting the update idk if it will every return.

When did this become a thread about human/Pokemon fusion? Now, back to the topic of Gen IV remakes. Would you like to use DP's dex or Platinum's?
Platinum's, absolutely. Platinum's wouldn't exist if it wasn't for D/P's being rather empty in certain departments.

As for fusion...Cyrus attempting fusion with Palkia or Dialga would be incredibly interesting to witness. He states how he wants to make their power his own, so...him fusing with the said Pokemon would literally be making it his own.

As a gameplay mechanic, I never want to see Pokemon/Human fusion, like...ever, but as a storyline mechanic (like Lusamine's) I think it'd be really dramatic and unexpected, especially attempting fusion with what is stated to be a god. Cyrus certainly has the ego & drive to attempt something like that.

Speaking of which, I wonder if D/P remakes would feature new ultra beasts. Sinnoh is famous for spacetime lore, so it'd be interesting to see if they introduced new ultra beasts from other dimensions to coincide with the theme.

Pokemon is not Dragon Ball Z. Apart from Black/White Kyurem and Lusamine fusing with Ultra Beast, the whole fusion thing is one thing that needs to remain absent from the games.

When did you become a moderator? This is twice now that you've gone into a thread to say, "When did this thread become about [a perfectly relevant topic when given the context], let's change the subject."

You could just as easily raise your own questions or ideas without the pretense.

I'd have to assume not, since Ultra Beasts count as whole Pokémon in the Pokédex and have their own index numbers. They'd be introducing new Pokémon in the middle of a generation, which I don't think they're ready to do. Although they could certainly introduce new forms for the existing UBs, or they could introduce more UB-like forms for the Sinnoh deities. Personally though, I'd be perfectly happy with just a general examination of how the Sinnoh dragons are similar to/different from the UBs.

Dp remakes are not going to have new pokemon cross gen evolutions unless it is in gen 8 which would introduce new evolutions for older pokemon.

Considering Rowan's area of expertise is in evolutions I'd hope for more mega evolutions as well as cross gen evolutions.

Maybe for certain really underwhelming lines they could get a new evolution and a mega.

Exactly, They only do new pokemon on the new generation, not on third game, sequels or remake, they only focus on old pokemon, well third game they can bring new pokemon and a lot of old pokemon, seqeuel they do the same thing on third game, but remake they only bring old pokemon

GF could have keep giving old pokemon with new pre-evolution, but they stopped doing that because of Mega evolution, they should have did new evolution for old pokemon and kept doing megas, but since we're not getting pre-evolution and megas, their no purpose of pokemon anymore :(

Just because they stopped doing that, doesn't mean that it'll never happen again. They stopped doing third versions and now we may potentially have a third version again.

Okay What about Mega evolution, we likely won't see New Megas in Pokemon Stars or DP remake, because Sun and Moon focused on Z-moves, they probably will do the follow up on Z-moves like they XY follow up on ORAS with Megas

There isn't much to follow up on. Only exclusive Z-Moves which wouldn't be much, in my opinion.

So what, we'll see new megas again, or they'll rid of megas altogether and come up with a new mechanic that is similar to Megas. To tell you the truth, people hated megas for a lot of reason, which cause GF not to focus on Megas

Stars is just a code name though. It could easily be sequels. Rainbow was a code name for Sun and Moon games I believe.

Third game, sequel, doesn't matter as long as they expanded the story of Sun and Moon
I think if we get a DP remake (or better possibly a sequel) there would be at least some explanation as to some unresolved plot points in Sun and Moon.

True, just like XY did with ORAS, if we get DP remake in 2017 or 2018 if Pokemon star rumor turns out to be true

Remember those days when people said that they will never remove gyms...

I've seen many people expressing their hate on Z-Moves. And Megas can more easily be followed up than Z-Moves. The only follow-up I can see to Z Moves is- Exclusive Z-Moves (meh...), and Z-Forms (which would be Megas with a new coat of paint.)

Looks like that happens in sun and moon, but rumors say the gyms will return in stars ( I don't know if it's in the pre-game or the post-game)

I still don't know about Megas, But I don't think they'll bring it back in Stars or DP remake, maybe they'll bring it back in the future well and improved, but for z-moves, we'll likely to see some new exclusive z-moves and finally introduces Z-forms in pokemon stars (I think Z-moves and Z-forms might replace Mega Evolution)
