Hey all! We wanted to let everyone know that the Pokemon GO section has officially been merged into the Pokemon Video Games section. You can find more information in this thread.
If they want to release gen 7 this year, then they need to wrap up the anime TF arc as soon as possible and I don't think that will happen how the pacing is right now. 9 months maximum from now on. That are about 37-40. TF arc will last at least until June/July like the merchandise and the M19 short are teasing. The league and goodbye also take 2-3 months.And suddenly Gen 6.5 got a hell of a lot more credence. There's only two other possibilities at this point, either we're skipping to 7th gen or they're teasing a 7th gen Pokemon ahead of time, and I don't see either of them being likely. 7th gen wouldn't make sense because they haven't explored Zygarde's role in the Kalos region, and there's no need for them to tease next gen Pokemon in a game they're not debuting in because the internet hypes up new content immediately. And like I said, it explains... pretty much everything weird about 6th gen. The next few months should be very interesting.
Because that could be a Gen 6.5 mythical pokemon and if they release Gen 6.5 in June like BW2, the timing for a mythical pokemon would be perfect. And why even distribute the pokemon in a new gen 7 games, if the movie is also a couple of months old?Magiana is confirmed to be a mythical Pokemon by CoroCoro. It makes no sense to use it this year without making it obtainable in a game. How would they distribute it more than a year later with the movie being old news? It would seem like a complete afterthought.
Because if there will be a new wave of pokemon in gen 6.5, they need to promote the new wave of pokemon if there's gonna be a Gen 6.5 game in the next months.If Game Freak were interested in Generation 6.5, I would think they would have saved Volcanion for that and/or kept Magiana for next year's movie. Instead, they've created a situation where Magiana is clearly more exotic than its co-star.
Is it official!?I really want to stop reading Magiana as 'Mangina'. Dammit, brain.
Pokejungle just updated: "Magiana’s body holds a mechanic that serves a function and only Volcanion who is chasing Magiana knows the mystery behind it. Volcanion is on a mission to return Magiana to the mechanical Kingdom of Azoth, where it has been kidnapped from. Presumably Magiana has some link to Project Azoth mentioned in ORAS."
This Azoth stuff is REALLY intruiging me now, but I still have no idea how it'll tie into the next game.
