...Huh. The leaks were real. I really like the battle interface and the wild Pokémon roaming in the overworld - I hope Gen VIII uses a similar style. Not a fan of Kanto though, hopefully the dex won't be limited to the original 151 before postgame. That was just plain annoying in FRLG. Johto being a postgame area would be fantastic imo.

Just saw the trailer, and pretty meh and underwhelming. There's some good things for sure like co-op gameplay (something I was hoping they'd do on the Switch) and Pokemon in the overworld, but everything else just looks like the exact copy/paste I feared they'd do. Not a good look so far. Reveals of non-Kanto Pokemon and new areas would save this for me, but otherwise pass.

So, all the Gen 8 leaks that came out this year are all BS. That means the Italian leaks and many others. Dang it, I was really looking forward to Gen 8 this year.

Also, not a huge fan of what I saw from the trailer of LGPE. I guess I'll have to come back to the community in a year. That 2019 hype tho....

  • I like the overworld, but I abhor the chibi hero models. Too reminiscent of Gen VI.
  • Plus the boy looks too much like Ash, gross.
  • I'm not interested in Kanto, but I already resigned myself to this fate a long time ago.
  • The co-op is cool. Probably won't use it, though.
  • And it looks like we can have Pokemon follow us? I swear to God though, if we're only limited to Kanto Pokemon with this feature, or if we're forced to keep Pikachu/Eevee in our party, I'm not buying.
  • It hasn't shown me anything that entices me, like sidequests or in-depth character customization. I'll wait and see though, since that stuff isn't usually confirmed until later on in the marketing.
Other than that, meh. Gen and Pokemon Go aren't a selling point to me, and since those are the main cruxes of this announcement, there's nothing about this that makes me care. I had low expectations coming in, and this video met them exactly.

I heard some people try to claim this a spinoff too. When will we got confirmation of whether or not these will connect to gen 7?
