Wow thats actually a huge improvement, did they change for any specific development reasons or was it part of that old public demo ?
If I recall correctly, it's from a trailer.

EDIT: Also, as far as I know they never gave a reason. It was just gone once the final game came out.

Are we in the darkest timeline with this drought? Or would the darkest timeline be one where the games are delayed?
Either way, after hyping myself up for AC news in the Direct, I'm keeping my expectations of news for anything I'm waiting on as low as I can.

No, this is not the darkest timeline. The darkest timeline would be if the games got cancelled. I don't want to know how the fandom would react to that.

I was going to suggest cancellation, but then I though I shouldn't say it out loud (or I guess type it out) just to be safe. I don't think we'd survive the aftermath of that kind of announcement. shudders

I can see it already...

Ishihara: Due to difficulty with the switch we will be cancelling the next games until better hardware is released sorry.

I threw together a quick little concept of how I think Gen 8 could look (best case scenario)
Take the models for Go and Lets GO and put on a background thats a sizeable leap from what we have now, similar to Pokken Tournament or Battle Revolution in HD.

From what we've seen of TOWN (Which is most definitely just an engine test for this) I dont think it's too farfathed to have something in this ballpark in terms of graphics, though I expect the artstyle to be consistent with a cel shaded anime look.

I don't think Legendary Pokemon are modeled after the titles--at least not for gold/silver. Ho-Oh debuted on episode 1 in the anime.

In any case, my point is that the titles need to make sense in the game. Crown & Sceptre doesnt make much sense imo

I would prefer if they did the characters in the vein of Gen VII. Just give them a wide range of emotions.
I also hope the story focuses on the pokemon rather than the characters unlike how sm focused too much on the aether family

This is the most realistic approach, definitely agreed.

Hmm ... looks a little too busy for my liking, but then again I am more used to the simplistic backgrounds of Gen 3/4
