I'm kinda disappointed it was the UK, but maybe it will grow on me. At least we have concrete info on the games!

I also find it kinda funny that Sword and Shield were among the first titles we discarded.

Can't wait to stop the nefarious plot of Team Brexit.
Or team Remoan, a group trying get Galar to no longer be it's own region and submit to rule from Kalos and share a league with them.

The music! Oh my god the music! I can literally listen to the music on repeat!

I’m conflicted with the version choices since I prefer warmer coloured, and the offensive one...

Looking at the map of Galar, the region seems to be painfully liniar. The water starter looks like Mudkip 2.0, but still looks pretty nice. The Grass Starter is my favourite of the three (Grass Chimchar FTW)

following pokemon removed with no excuse this time, no overworld encounters either
