Usually the first trailer, sometimes the second I do believe.
Strangely they haven't revealed it yet and we're 2 trailers in.
It is very strange if the name is generally revealed in the first or second trailer. Indeed, we are two trailers in, and yet we don't know the name. Perhaps they have not FULLY decided on the name?

Man I forgot how... not great the Sun and Moon trailers were, the earlier ones at least. Not sure if it got better later on.

I didn't follow leaks before Gen 6. XD Closest was my mom found some stuff I think before Gen 2 released. She printed out pictures of Bellossom, Snubbull, Marill (Pikablu) and Donphan and some others.

My interest in pokemon actually dipped the most around Gen 3 and Gen 4, and I don't remember if I even knew about Gen 5 until 2011 when I got back into the series again and was angry knowing that Unova even existed.

It's a very long shot but I what if the reason why they haven't revealed the Region's name yet is because maybe it has a different name depending on what which version you play?

I mean it's unlikely but this is also the very first time we've had Version exclusive Professors so anything's possible I guess

Sounds like a pain when you wanna refer to the region, do you just pick a name? call it both with a slash? Fuse the names somehow into one?

I WAS ALSO ANGRY because I was disappointed in diamond lol. So glad that I bought it anyway though
I never finished Diamond... don't think I finished Sapphire either. After playing through the entirety of Gold, the whole classic Pokemon gameplay was just really boring and repetitive, and so with Black and White being "you must use these ugly new pokemon," I just noped out on that generation entirely. Screw that.

Diamond at least had the Underground so I kept going back to it to dig up skull fossils and never progressed. XD

Gen 6 kind of piqued my interest again with the 3D, and I was back into Pokemon at least via art and online roleplay at that point anyway, but I decided to wait because I expected Pokemon Z to happen and then it never did. So wound up skipping that generation.

And then Gen 7 came out and it had so many new pokemon that I loved the designs of, so I finally got a 3DS and picked up a Pokemon game aaaaand... yeah, turns out 3D didn't make the gameplay any different, really. Still the same slow turn-based drag through trying to avoid grass because I'm sick of randomly being stopped every two seconds.

I am so glad that random encounters have been going away.

Now if every game from now on could just be more like Legends: Arceus. Easily the best game in the series in terms of general gameplay- definitely had room for improvement but the engagement was so good.

I remember in high school getting so excited at the first XY trailer
God I remember having just gotten back into pokemon with black 2 in freshman year, only for x and y to get announced a week or two later. I was so hyped, I even got my first job at Mc Donald's to pay for a 3ds. Made getting hoopa real easy to lmao.
