The important thing is 'what kind of game does Game Freak want to make'? They've been making core RPGs more and more complex with every edition when they could have simplified it whenever they wanted. They could have had us returning to Kanto every generation. They didn't, and the games have been huge sellers every time. I was worried for a bit there but I just don't believe Game Freak is about to throw away what made them successful beyond Gen 1, the way of making games that they are obviously passionate about.

Do we even have pre-order stats yet? I know the games are up for pre-order now, I've done so myself, but I don't think we know how many copies have been pre-ordered yet. That usually takes awhile.
We don't know, but it's one of the safest bets ever.

Odds are greatly in anybody's favor who says these will be top selling games, just because of how broad of an audience they appeal to.

Okay then. All's I know is I'm gonna pick up Let's Go Eevee. Has anyone speculated if they're going to release a brand new Eeveelution? Did GF make any such hint? Or am I just a little nutty? I'd personally love to see a Steel-type, Steeleon, or a Dragon-type, Drakeon. clever names are clever

Unfortunately, that seems rather unlikely. They’ve said that there is one brand new Pokémon in the game, but didn’t give any indication as to what kind.

Also, it would be pretty shady if they introduced a new eeveelution and then didn’t let you evolve your starter Eevee into it.

They're adding one new Pokemon, so it could be anything

Probably just Gorochu though

My guess is we're going to get more information at E3 this year considering the timing of the announcement and everything meaning E3 for Nintendo is going to be big.

But we have five months before this game is out and even though this hype period is still shorter then most I wonder what they can announce over those months that could keep people excited until the game comes out.

Remember, our partner can't but wild Eevee's can. Meaning nothing's stopping them from showing a new evo, especially with the upcoming movie.
It wouldn’t make sense from a marketing standpoint to not let the starter Eevee evolve into the new Eeveelution.

Actually it could make sense, as new players would evolve it willingly/accidentally and then would be dissapointed that there is no interaction anymore between the starter and trainer, as the evolutions for example won‘t ride on trainers hat.

So the starters will most probably be not able to evolve. And the new pokemon is likely to be a mythical/legendary or something like lucario/zoroark, as it is called a special pokemon and will probably be used in next movie. I don‘t think they will center a whole movie on an evolution of eevee. Instead we will probably get two or three evolutions with Gen 8, as there hasn‘t been new ones for so long.

Its #808 in the dex, meaning its either a mythical or a legendary or the gen 8 grass starter.

We don't know for a fact that it's #808.

There's a decent chance it is, but that has never been said or confirmed.

I heard somewhere that there was a datamine of Pokemon Quest with no. 808 present.
Oh? That is interesting. I guess I stand corrected. It'll probably be another Victini-type where it's at the beginning of it's region's portion of the national dex for whatever reason. I don't see why Gen 7 would need ANOTHER mythical. Have they datamined any info besides a dex number?

I was hoping it'd be a non-legendary special-type Pokemon like Lucario/Zoroark vs. a mythical, but oh well.

I believe it was just a certain number of empty slots beyond 151, for the other existing Pokemon plus one more. 808 might not even be its dex number in the end, it might just be the 808th and final Pokemon added to Quest.
