Then in that case what you should be pushing for is a cheaper price for existing content. We have mobile games that give us about the same content for free that Game Freak is giving us for $40-$60 and there's other games that are $40-$60 that are offering much more content. It's not simply about the content, it's about the relationship between price and content. There's definitely room in the market for a lower end game with less content for an audience that doesn't want as much out of a Pokemon game, but that audience also isn't the best target audience for a full priced retail console game. The issue is that people are expecting the price to match the content, you should get premium content for a premium price and a lesser price for lesser content. Unfortunately they're not really doing this, we're getting lesser content for a premium price and that's being seen as poor value.Maybe, maybe not. Thing is the lack of additional features doesn’t bother me as much because I never made much use of them even when they were available. I happen to be one of those people who “doesn’t have time for video games” Masuda keeps talking about.
Yup, it was Umbreon. It didn't get the Dark-Type (and a slight redesign) til later. It evolved from Eevee with the scrapped Poison Stone, just like Espeon used the Heart Stone. Judging by one of Gen II's Pokédex entries, they didn't even alter them after the change, which is why it mentions that Umbreon has poison sweat.Wasn’t originally there a poison eevee in the prototype game of Gold and Silver initially ?
I would bet on May 7th or May 9th, for the first trailer (I think we may have a teaser before that, but I don't think it will show up on a Pokémon Direct).Mabye try to predict when the pokemon direct will happen
I'm predicting Feb 5th
We know he was promoted to an "Art Director on the Pokémon series". But we don't know yet whether he will be the eighth-generation director or the director of another game.Do we know what art position James Turner would have with Gen 8 ? Hearing he got promoted to a higher spot within gamefreak. I know this is taboo however Im thinking, hypothetically, if the region itself is United Kingdom / London or whatever, Turner having lived in that area for most of his life and him being in a higher Gamefreak position within art, what better person to draw from for inspiration.
I wonder if he got much say within design in Gens 5-7 or if he followed a specific brief set by Gamefreak.
Seeing the beta sprite of some other Pokémon, like Murkrow, I think the Dark type didn't even exist at that time? And well, it makes sense to Umbreon to be a poison type, because it is said in Dex that it expels venom of its body. So I think we can catalog it as a "cheater/trickster pokémon", and that's from where the Dark type must have come from.Considering what we can see of Gen 2's development, it's pretty clear that Espeon and Umbreon were not originally intended to show off any new feature (except two type stones that got scrapped). They were switched later to tie in with the day/night mechanic, at which point Dark may have made more sense to them than Poison and no effort was made to alter Umbreon's design.
That's true. But not everyone was waiting for the eighth generation to be released that year.Oh...that's nothing. We woke up with that in mind like every day till May last year.
And if anyone hasn't noticed yet, Meltan's national dex number is 808, and Melmetal's is 809.It's because Mewtwo's Birthday and the 810th day of Gen 7 both land on this day. Meltan was revealed on the 808th day of Pokemon Go.
Oh wow, I completely forgot Eternal Floette was in Gen 7. That is kind of interesting that GF was in Southern France area. I remember seeing a theory video about visiting Southern Kalos (or just a Southern France region) in a future game like years ago.Another little thought- Eternal Flower Floette is apparently still in the game data in Gen 7, but Cosplay Pikachu's data was removed.
Kinda makes me wonder about that GameFreak being in southern France thing.
I don’t see why they would use Town’s engine instead of just sticking with SM’s.This is getting into tinfoil-hat theory, but if we were to assume that Town is in the same engine that gen 8 is using,
haven't all generations on new hardware been built in new engines? I always figured that and personally towns overworld is a lot more what I expect visually out of gen 8 than s/m'sI don’t see why they would use Town’s engine instead of just sticking with SM’s.
I’m also not really sure what you mean by a game with “similar style”. Italian and Spanish culture are quite a bit different than France’s.
Actually Murkrow was already Dark/Flying at that point, and there were a few other Dark-types, like Girafarig was originally Dark/Normal and Sneasel was also already Dark-type. There was also a Dark-type cat line that was sadly scrapped.Seeing the beta sprite of some other Pokémon, like Murkrow, I think the Dark type didn't even exist at that time?

So thinking about, I don't think its sprite should have changed so much. Maybe, if it was a poison type, they could have switched his black color parts to purple.
Yeah, I didn't know (I didn't look for the details about this demo yet). I had just researched minutes ago, and had just edited the post at the same time you were quoting me.Actually Murkrow was already Dark/Flying at that point, and there were a few other Dark-types, like Girafarig was originally Dark/Normal and Sneasel was also already Dark-type.

But yeah, I agree Umbreon fits both types well. About the octopus reference, good thinking! I had not realized that.But yeah, I don't think that Umbreon's design needed to change much. Even if it was a last-minute type change, poison Umbreon was already black with red eyes, so they may have looked at it and just decided that it could work as a Dark-type and that would add more Dark-types to the roster, since the type was new and quite lacking.
Kind of a shame, though, because I'm sure that the glowing rings on Umbreon's body were a reference to the blue-ringed octopus (and its shiny form may have been made blue for just this reason) so now that the design was made into Dark... they'd have to find some other way to represent poison if they ever release a poison-type eeveelution for real, and that first reference was a pretty good one. But ah well, surely they could think of something.
I’ve seen people speculate that it’ll be a successor for Pokémon Bank, but it’ll also be available as an App for Phones and the like, because said people pointed out Monpoké could mean Monster Pocket.and we've got that Monpoke trademark still unrevealed... which looks like it could be more of Pokemon's clever wordplay using the "-mon" as the french word for "my." My poke? The successor to Pokemon Bank?
