Good to see the 100+ pages that came up while I was off playing KH3 to the Platinum Trophy didn't announce anything new!

At the same time I'm so thirsty for news. The Direct gave me nothing but more thirst because there was nothing for Animal Crossing, but now I'm also thirsty to hear about Rune Factory 5...

Nintendo plz I am dying

Ah... then i missed that. Cannot have them all.

But its possible it doesn't mean anything right now, because its a different console at all. But when SUMO was revealed, XY reveal trailer was made private.
Oh, I see what do you mean now. The SM trailer has already been removed/made as private for a while now, I think (regarding official channels). I'm not sure about the others (LGPE and USUM).

Pokemon is our only hope of hearing anything any time soon. Animal Crossing we'll very likely be waiting until E3. sigh

Will gen 8 have an orchastrated soundtrack? I hope it does
There should be at least some tracks recorded by/with an orchestra!

Sometimes i have been wondering if this generation will have an extra amount of science fiction (each game has already had quite a bit!) and so some compositions may include orchestra mixed with synthesizer!

The general Chinese community has been quiet since LGPE leaked which they knew of well in advance before PokeJungle shared that blurred Lapras picture.

I think it will be a long while before we get any real industry insider leaks for Pokemon again.

Like, if anything, Let's GO had an absolutely beautiful soundtrack. I hope we get some more fully orchestrated pieces for Gen 8. I need to hear that beauty again.

Whatever happened to the Chinese Riddler? Didn't he hint at pokemon sun&moon's titles and their box art legendaries before they were announced?
I seem to think he ended up getting in trouble with the law because of what he was doing. He is now laying low probably or possibly in prison.

As I recall, he's not in prison- I think he just got scolded or opted not to leak anymore? People have posted speculation posts from him here since Sun and Moon, so he's still around, but he's not posting leaks anymore.

It's been an awful fast month and Pokemon Day is a little over a week away so we will be hearing something soon. Fun to see the thread so far in. 1500 pages here we come! Who gets a prize for final post on 1499 and first for 1500? Haha

Edit: when you think about jt groudon is more of a sun pokemon than solgaleo
In terms of primal typing and Pokémon ability yes

In terms of actual origin and mythology, definitely not.

Honestly the best example of the sun is Volcarona in terms of Pokémon lore and real mythology.

The sun and lion are in a lot of emblems irl though so I can see how the Sun pokemon is a lion.
