He, Him,
Seriously though, if they're gonna keep doing Charizard like this, then we're really going to need a game where you can use all of the burst mechanics because imagine the teams of just charizards and each one has a different burst attached. "Here's my mega charizard, and my Inferno Overdrive charizard, and my Gigantamax charizard, and my--"

Plus the SwSh reveal video gave us VIDEO of the starters. We don’t even know a single thing about how these new starters move or even what they look like from a different angle. That’s kinda wild.

Galaxy brain idea: Eevee is in, but not all of its evolutions are, so it does fit the table. Like three are in or something, but not necessarily the same three as Kanto.

(to be clear, this is mostly a joke)
I saw this and my first thought was it only has three new Eeveelutions

What are the latest rumours? It is still believed that the 9th gen gimmick is the move fusion?

Consider that back in 2016, around this month, all we knew about Sun and Moon from their announcement trailer were the names (and that maybe they were settled in Hawaii even if not officially confirmed). So I guess we were pretty lucky with S/V, we got less info about the starters but we also got a better look at the region than sw/sh.

REALLY hoping next week is finally time for SV news. It has been pointed out also that there's hidden videos for Unite, with one of them obviously being Delphox's reveal. They revealed Hoopa in the Pokemon Day event, so with Delphox coming on the 6th, it would make sense to do it there. So get that out of the way and move onto a big Scarlet and Violet trailer.

Agreed. It’s pretty wild that we don’t even know the region name or the official in game model of the starters at this point when SwSh revealed all of those back in Pokémon Day in 2019.

We didn't actually see in game models of Scorbunny, Sobble, and Grookey until the June Pokemon Direct in 2019. What we saw on Pokemon Day was CGI footage.

Though we said the same thing about Espeon and we're still waiting. XD

Still, hoping for it.

Granted SuMo's Pokemon Day announcement only gave us concept art and a WIP look at Pikipek's model... but the next trailer for that came sooner than this one.

Well, I should’ve clarified and said 3D models rather than in fake models but yes, those are what I mean. I still count those.

When we finally DO get some news, which I seriously hope is next week and they don't just wait for a Nintendo Direct and do one after it...I imagine the things we'll get will be

  • An in game look at Sprigatito, Fuecoco, and Quaxley
  • Explanations about how Pokemon will function as an open world game.
  • 4-5 new Pokemon, possibly including the regional rodent, bug, early grass type, and bird.
  • The region's name and map. Please. I love analyzing new region maps.
  • Possibly some details about the whole grape/orange school thing.
The whole regional gimmick is a wild card. For Sun and Moon, we didn't find out about Z-Moves until August, though Sword and Shield gave us info about Dynamax in the first big news drop.

Like many have speculated, I’m certain the games will have past/future theme. Especially after looking at the clock in the trailer, I’m pretty sure its design is inspired by the Andalusian era of Spain in the past. Like the attached pic, it’s very similar to the clock from the trailer. I’m a fan of Andalusian style architecture , so I can’t wait to see all the inspiration in the games.

Would Volo appear through timetravel? That would make sense for Hisuian Pokémon getting into the game...
I mean he did say "I will CONQUER it! No matter how many years, how many decades, how many centuries it takes me!" so maybe he's got some eternal life situation or something.

That would be very interesting. I mean if it's pulled off better than AZ.

It won't happen but it would be really cool if AZ and Volo were rivals and Volo was the king who fought with AZ or something.

We can expect news on June 2nd. It is a Thursday and news about the upcoming generation typically comes out in early June within the first week early into the second week.
