• 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.

    For more information, see this thread

How about apathy vs emotion? Does emotion influence our decisions or would we make better decisions without emotions?
I really like this idea. Heart versus Mind. Logic versus Emotions. I would love to see that really fleshed out and even somehow represented in the rivalry between the legendary mascots. Even more fleshed out than Truth versus Ideals in BW, which I though fell a little flat.

We can have the Compassionate Pokémon and the Logic Pokémon. The Logic Pokémon can be robotic in appearance and the Compassionate Pokémon can be motherly in appearance.

Pokemont Desert and Jungle(III game could be Oasis),
What if a region 60% of it would be half a year a dry desert and the rest of the year 60% would change into a rain forest?

Imagine how people would need to use technology in such a region.
And how pokemon would need to adapt in this changing region through the year, then fire/grass cactus() would be a posibility. Day and night also need to be present after Sun and Moon, not like in previous games that they forgot about it.

1.Heart vs 2.Mind,
1.Bravery vs 2.Logic
makes me think more about 1.Sweapers and 2.Stallers, about
1.action, Priority, power,speed,attack,special, physical
and
2. reaction, counter messures, abilities, strategy, effects, defences

Assuming that Game Freak goes with biomes, I'd play the hell out of a Pokemon Savanna and a Pokemon Tundra.

Pokemon Brave and Pokemon Logic , that could actually be good ones.

Might and Magic, that really should be made into pokemon games by now, with a figthting/fairy legendary

Pokemon CRYO (Cryokinesis) and PYRO(Pyrokinesis)

I want to see the Four Symbols of China as legendaries next gen. They are protectors of the four compass points: the tortoise in the North, the dragon in the east, the fire bird in the south and the white tiger in the west. Instead of there being a trio of main legendaries and then a trio/quartet of lesser legendaries, I would just make these the main and only legendaries.

Each one is associated with an element in the mythology: tortoise with water, tiger with steel, dragon with grass and fire bird with fire. For their types I would make them Water/Ice, Steel/Ghost, Grass/Dragon and Fire/Fairy . Ice because the tortoise represents the north where it's cold and also because it is also associated with black (black warrior) and the void, both of which could link to black ice and the coldness of ice respectively. Grass/Dragon because it's literally just a dragon, it's not very surprising. Fire/Fairy because the phoenix is supposed to represent peace and good fortune (and is often seen as opposite of the the dragon) and we have too many Fire/Flying types so it can differ itself from Ho-oh and Moltres this way. Steel/Ghost for the tiger because the white tiger in this myth is associated with clairvoyance, grave guarding and all sorts of spiritual stuff... and also it's white like a cliche ghost so it fits nicely.

good ideas, but the grass/dragon would not fit in somehow, I would rather want a dragon/steel levitate based and a ice/ghost tiger with heatproof.
Grass/dragon needs rather a physically oriented line, a european rose dragon rather.
The Tortoise , water? really? we had so many turtle and totoise pokemon, water, ground, grass, fire? why not electric/rock? or something other then we had in the past?

So you're going to totally ignore the background of the idea and then tell me what would and wouldn't fit it. Are you for real. The tiger is the one associated with Steel in Chinese mythology, not the dragon. The dragon is associated with wood and is literally a Chinese dragon, so how would that not fit Grass/Dragon.

not that, I like your idea, but that motive was udes in Digimon.
I also look what we got till now.
Could you tell us more of the abilities and status of these legendaries? physical or special oriented? tiger would rather be physical, what about the rest?

I have been thinking about this for awhile now, and I realized that what I want from the Gen VIII games are for the Pokémon designs to be more wackier and somewhat contradictory. I want Pokémon like a snowman that loves heat and has the ability Flash Flare. I want kid-friendly version of Lovecraftian-style abominations without turning the games into a cosmic horror. Basically, I just want strange, interesting, and fun designs for the Gen VIII Pokémon and even the region as a whole.

Do you mean something like this:
A snowman-line that can control fire.

Embrakid (ember + tundra + kid)
Slazeman (sleet/slush + blaze + snowman)

Both are Ice/Fire-type.

GAMEFREAK, CAN WE PLEASE HAVE A REGION BASED ON INDIA! PRETTY PLEASE! *puppy eyes*

I always saw Island Trials as an Alola-exclusive thing, so maybe we will see Gyms return hopefully with a Dark-type Gym this time around.

Also, I hope they introduce more Pokémon than they did in Gens VI and VII. 70 to 80 new Pokémon just ain't enough for me! Also, can I get a peacock Pokémon? Please...
