I think we'll have the first trailer (not teaser) at early May. But I think we can and that we should have a teaser before that, with the titles at least.Does anyone here think that Gen 8 will be revealed in April/May? I don't think so because that's too late for an announcement of Pokémon's first home console core series game.
I like all of this, this sounds good.
Interesting. I had seen this before, and had ignored by the amount of generic information he had given.
I don't necessarily disagree, but can you really say that just getting the titles and Magearna for SM was enough to keep people invested in the discussion for three months? Even XY with its more substantial reveals had a burnout heading towards May and I remember some dropping out of discussion for other games until that point. Ultimately, if the intent is to keep people engaged throughout the year, the early part is still rather limited since there's only so much that you can recycle the small amount of discussion points given, so fans still get antsy again and the tease we get just serves as a small fix to a bigger problem.Those sparse details could be enough to get the fanbase hyped though. One of the things fans are going to be looking to see is how improved the graphics and the overworld are. Even a few screenshots or gameplay clips could answer that. If we're going to be waiting a while anyway to see the real meat of the reveals, they may as well show something in the meantime. Remember, we've known about this game for over 6 months. We've already had a long wait and fans are antsy for information on the game. Having at least something for the next 3 months would at least keep the fans engaged. Yes, it's not much but something is better than nothing.
I agree with this, I don't mind the number so much as I mind how they're utilized. Gen 6 had the second least number of legendaries in the franchise, but none of them stuck with me as Xerneas and Yveltal were underdeveloped, Zygarde had to wait until the sidequest in SM to get anything to it, and the Mythicals started to lose their personality and connection to the region to become glorified trophies. The low number of them did nothing to make them feel more legendary and in a lot of ways they were lacking in comparison to the majority of their counterpart in other generations. The intent for legendaries should be focused more on implementing them better so that they stand out, not cutting off the number of them arbitrarily and leaving with a small amount that may not feel special regardless.While I agree that Gen 4 overdid it a bit when it came to the amount of Legendary Pokémon, I was actually very pleased with the way they were handled in Gen 7. The Tapus role as active island guardians given was heavy focus. Even the Island Challenge has been created in honour of their great benevolence. They also influence the islands and their inhabitants directly. Take Tapu Bulu for example, who destroys the Thrifty Megamart as punishment for the people who built it on its sacred grounds. That said, Type: Null and Silvally pale in comparison and don't feel like real Legendary Pokémon to me at all.
I'd like to see more Legendary Pokémon that feel involved with their world, like the Tapus. Or at least Legendary Pokémon with interesting lore or mystery behind them to truly justify their Legendary status, such as the Regi Trio.
I highly doubt that either of those things will happen. It's fake.So, I just looked at his replies under that tweet. If this turns out to be true, there will be 100-110 new mons and you will revisit kalos. I really hope he is right, this sounds really cool.
Revisiting Kalos is unlikely IMO. We haven't seen anything like that since Gen II, and I would think GameFreak would want Gen VIII to stand on its own.So, I just looked at his replies under that tweet.
