    Make it more subtle. Maybe something like, Pokemon East and West based on Germany. For reasons...

    I wouldn't mind if they removed z-moves in gen 8
    They are basically just instakill moves

    Yeah I can't say I'd mind that much myself. I only ever really use Z moves as a way to be 'cinematic' for important battles like against rivals, Guzma, Rainbow Rocket leaders, and the Elite 4 and Champion battles. Kinda the same with Mega Evolution.

    I’m the same with Mega. I think it was a poorly distributed gimmick.

    I hope they have no new battle gimmick (like z moves and megas) in gen 8. I don't dislike them, but they're getting tiresome and don't feel like they add much unless you play competitive pokemon.

    Even for competitive pokemon, its a hot mess it stuffs everything every time a new generation and meta is formed. The power creep that comes with each gimmick + the new generation is extensive.

    What else can you really ask for. If they don't do anything that sets each gen apart the games will be more repetitive than they already are.

    What would be nice is the return of Triple and Rotation battles.

    I'd like to see a gym leader or whatever the new gimmick for gyms is that utilizes these kinds of battles, or at least doubles like Tate and Liza do.

    Oh well at least it's something to look forward to, something actually related to gen 8 or not. It'll at least be something new to talk about!

    I wonder what it is

    We shouldn’t hype it up too much. Might be something really minor like tune in next time for news lol

    Either way, seeing peoples reactions when I wake up is something I look forward to! xD

    I hope at least some kind of theory business comes from it, nonsense or not. :p

    If it will be new designs + regional forms it will be cool but I really don't want new mega evolutions.
