I think I'm team scorbunny or team soddle all the way. I really don't care for the grass monkey.
Also, I wonder if the logos gave the legendaries away. Are they both going to be wolves? Or at least one of them?
The gyms look sick though!

I am just so overwhelmed with joy and pride that we are the host region for the next set of games. It's been obvious for a while but to still have it officially confirmed is next level stuff.

I can't wait to invite all Pokemon fans to the Galar region later on this year. First time on a home console it's guaranteed to be epic!!!

Looking at it with a calmer mind, it looks like the scenery and music are the best things about it. The Fire starter is the only one I like a little, that too because it’s speedy.
WHY NO FOLLOWING POKÉMON GF
No overworld encounters either...

Guess I can play it as a visual novel?

No sign of following Pokemon or overworld Pokemon. I will have to look back at the Let's Go titles to see if they showed either of these in the beginning. I won't be devastated if it doesn't happen, after all these are very big games. But at the same time that does leave me hope that they just haven't fully put it into the games or were showing it off yet because they did say they wanted to make these games as big as possible.

If following Pokemon does happen, I hope we can have an option to have are starters on us. I can see the player holding Scorbunny, Sobble sitting on the player's head, and Grookey sitting on the player's shoulder. It's just a wish, but dang that would be awesome.

So its finally revealed. Is it time to start speculating Gen IX yet? Anyways part of the region does seem Sweden like, but I can very easily see the connections between it and Britain. Hope fully the starters grow on my cause they just didn't do it for me like previous gens have.

Grooky looks the best. I don't particularly like Scorbunny or Soddle or whatever it was called, but they aren't the worse starters (Gen 5/6) so at least that's something.

A pity that there are no overworld Pokemon and following Pokemon, not sure why they continuously get rid of features people like.

The region doesn't look huge, but that aside, it looks pretty good. No more crappy console frame rate.

Just beautiful... The attention to detail, the vertical spaces, the new shell-shaded style for the Pokémon, that spooky forest, and that move animation for Lucario, SO EPIC!!!!! Grookey is by far my favorite first stage starter. At the end with that scene with the big stadium, the player character was wearing a shirt with the same red and blue symbol that's also in the Japanese logos for the games, it should be something very significant. I would've rather seen a region based on another country, but I can't complain because this looks absolutely gorgeous.

Sweden is close and that's most likely Scotland.
Feel a little disappointed Wales does not seem to be included but I appreciate I was never going to get everything I want.
