Hello guys, I just wanted this post of mine to be the first of this thread's page 1,000.
Sure it is possible. Just one example: with SM they only showed the logos in the first ad. I believe that the first announcement of the eighth generation will show much more, just like the one of XY. They need to show how the games "evolved" from SM, and regain the confidence of the fanbase (also show how the game is different from LGPE for some).It's barely even possible to be more aggressive than they were with SM.
When XY was announced the 3DS was with about 35 million units sold. The Switch is struggling to reach 25, even with Let's Go (it will probably hit the mark at Christmas, but the fiscal year sales will still be far below Nintendo's forecasts).Maybe in Japan, but certainly not elsewhere. And the only support needed is a cheaper model.
What do you mean by that? Part of the fanbase is dissatisfied. They are aware of that. Otherwise, there would be no reason for Tsunekazu to be promoting the upcoming games during the pre-launch of Let's Go.That's a big stretch and reeks of entitlement.
I was referring to Let's Go.But I liked XY and SM. How bad of a reception did they get?
With Ohmori most likely at the helm, this isn't surprising.So that means a fair amount of dialogue. I remember when SM (or was it USUM?) were still leaking, someone mentioned the overall length to finish the games being a bit high for Pokemon games. If that's the case, it makes me excited to see just how extensive this game is.
Sure it is.Question, if localisation is already starting, does that mean japanese translation is already done?
Huh, in that case since they announced the game will come out in the second half next year, do we expect it earlier? Maybe around August or September?Sure it is.
And if you also believe that the game will be announced in January, by now the game should be almost ready. Between the announcement and the few months before the release, they will be able to add, modify, and fix some things.
I would not be sure about the starters and legendaries, but I really think they will not do like the SM's announcement, where they only showed the logo. I think that they will want to show the public that games are a evolution of the seventh generation. And show for some that they are different from LGPLGE. So I expect an announcement like XY.I wonder if we might get a mix between the way S/M and X/Y were announced
Title drop in Jan/Feb, movie related reveals that also have to do with gen 8 from feb-march then actual info blowout with starters/legends, etc in may
Maybe, it is "later 2019", at all. But I'd bet on October or November, if you ask me.Huh, in that case since they announced the game will come out in the second half next year, do we expect it earlier? Maybe around August or September?
Not too sure about what the Riddler said myself, as Google Translate didn't help.What was the reason for X and Y being announced so early? Like in January two months after BW2 were released internationally? As well as showing the starters and legendaries at the same time? It was never done before and it hasn't been done since.
Also what has the riddler mentioned about the next film? Did he give a hint? what was he discussing about?

As for your question in XY's case, they basically were showing off the major change of Pokemon on the 3DS. Since they were jumping from 2D Sprite animation to full 3D animation graphics, they probably wanted to set the bar really high with the technical jump.
While I DO question if the same can be done now that Let's Go are on the Switch, I also do see a potential of the reveal being in January and being very akin to XY's reveal. It'll be the first core series game for competitive players on a new system. And the way each interview they had regarding the titles have always mentioned the key word "Evolution" means that what ever is planned for said titles is VERY BIG and provides some major shake ups, maybe to the graphical sense, who knows. Too add, I think we may see that only, however marketing strategies do say otherwise if the leaks made by Paul is anything to go by. In all, my guess (note its a GUESS) is that starting next month, we may be in for a wild ride.
I think they might have learned their lesson from Sun and Moon, or at least I hope. I know people were pretty angry when the first thing they showed were logos, repeated the same thing on a tv appearance, and didn't show anything concrete until May. At the least they had the excuse that they weren't ready yet and wanted something on the 20th anniversary, but still.I just hope it isn't like SM in terms of announcement, knowing at least a little more than "it's coming" would be nice. They don't need to show everything, but I would like to at least see the box arts so it can spawn speculations.
