Hopefully she's just saying that because of reasons we can already sorta figure (HD-USUM esque graphics, Kanto, etc)

Hype is at an all time high, we're finally here ahhh

anything think the Oha Suta news might be pertaining to the anime that will tie into the new games?

Mixed reactions (reffering to Rogers) sounds bad.
I think it depends:
- People who are expecting gen 8 will be disappointed anyway.
- People who are expecting BOTW openworld and graphics will be disappointed anyway,
- People who are expecting d/p remakes will be disappointed anyway.

If you count all these people, the fact that the reactions will be mixed is just a fact right now...

Personally, I will be disappointed if:

- The games are 1:1 remakes.
- Graphics are just s/m in hd. I need something that marks the switch, like they've always done with new systems.
- We'll go back to grid based.
- Pikachu and Eevee cannot evolve.
- Only first 151 pokemon in the games.
- The announcement never happens.

About the ‘original 151 only’ thing -

What if the games have Bank compatibility?

Hasn’t everyone been... catching them all...?

‘Cause, you know... they’ve kinda been encouraging that for a while now.

the series first console game not being a traditional new generation like we've come to expect gives it far more of a reason to be divisive than we've seen in the past imo.

There are still plenty of people holding out that the games will be new region, new pokemon, etc, people who don't keep up with rumors assuming gen 8, etc. There's gonna be more of a storm than usual upon announcement
