    Well, I never put too much stock on an art series to show something new that's Pokemon related.

    I don't think they will ever do a particularly dark pokemon game. That's just the wrong tone for this franchise.

    I think it's more like we troll ourselves when we expect more from them.

    I'm just waiting for the day we see the region so that we can see the end of literally everything being interpreted as a UK hint.

    The amount of pages that have been wasted looking for UK hints in everything (even his LUNCH was not spared) makes Spain look like an obscure lone post.

    I’m still betting on London (regardless of the over the top speculation). And probably less than 90 Pokémon, until Gen 9.

    Even if Spain becomes the next region, there’s at least Gibraltar to be added within it.

    I just want some official news in general, whether the titles, the starters or even the legendaries, at least something more concrete.

    I don't know. I feel like it would be much more agonizing to know the games' titles and the new logos without any further information than knowing nothing at all. I'd rather wait a while longer to get more information at once with a bigger reveal. A 30 second teaser with only the titles and release date tells us almost nothing at all. Either way, I can't say I wouldn't be hyped to finally get at least some news after all this time.

    Well at least knowing the titles our imaginations can run on something more stable than rumors for a little bit haha

    I would hate them only releasing the titles again but I'm sick of the same lame titles coming up again and again and again so... lesser of two evils. Some of these rumours just need to die.

    Story, graphics region design, Pokemon design, non-battle features? I'm pretty sure most people's opinions of the games aren't just centered around how many features they can put in battles.

    (All of them, tbh.)

    I think that if it is Spain, it could be the entire Iberian Peninsula considering the fact there's Portugal. The Americas were colonised by the two countries in the 16th Century.

    I wouldn't even be surprised if we end up getting a Gym Leader who is inspired on a Conquistador.

    I am thinking Mewtwo's new form is going to be Ultra Shinning and he will look similar to Yuma's Dragon form. I could imagine Mewtwo gains a dragon,because he does looks similar to a eastern dragon in a way. I wonder the music will play a key unlock his new form,because we known music had play major roles in Pokémon movie like the Darkei movie and Pokemon 2000 and the Power of Us.

    While Pokemon has a few dragon types that are questionable, I really don’t see why Mewtwo of all things should have a dragon type.

    Could you give an example? After typing “dragon based on cats” on google all i can find is the Toothless from How to train your dragon.

    That’s not exactly “mythology” xD
