Again, somebody put quite a bit of thought into these little guys if fake, which is what makes them slightly believable cause that's the same feeling I had for the Alola starters.
Really, there's as much thought put into those as there was into these-


So I wouldn't say that thought makes something more likely by any stretch- little more convincing as a reference sheet, maybe. But this one still falls very short of believable.

Still, even if they are fake. I like seeing image leaks. Gives us something to discuss and speculate about the set of starters we might actually get.

Right now Nintendo is on a LGPE high BABY and it feels nice.
With that said, it might take a bit until we fully see Gen 8 until around Pokemon day and the hype has never been realer

I see that you added "Ages" and "Seasons"... Maybe the third version could be called "Secrets". Jokes aside, the Flame/Frost duo sounds nice, same with Summer/Winter.

Nature and Nurture would be interesting, but the latter doesn't marketable.

I bet on Infinity and Eternity, perfect names of Pokemon games being before Diamond and Pearl remakes, as both names has to do with Time and Space. (Alternatively, the remakes could be called Eternity Diamond and Infinity Pearl.)

It will never happen, but I bet someone at GameFreak wishes they could name the remakes Crazy Diamond and Pearl Jam. I don't think Eternity Diamond will happen though. Eternity is suppose to exist outside of time.

That or it can grow into a great crested newt, the tail kinda hints that's the case. That can be cool actually. And you want to know the funny part about that theory? Crested newts can be found among the Britsh Isles. In other words, another hint to the U.K. being the next region.
I would be so happy if we get a Crested Newt. Its number one on my list of animals I want to be a pokemon.

Hey people, what are your bets on the names of the next games?
Even though I made it up kind of off hand, I actually really like the sound of Ebony and Ivory so I'm going to stick with that.

Pokémon Stardust and Pokémon Starlight
It's not quite the same, but I think Stardust and Comet Shard could be cool? (I'd say Star Piece, but Shard sounds cooler) They've been valuable items for a while, but there's never been any explanation behind them.

agreed, 2019 is going to rival 2016 in terms of sheer hype for the franchise and perhaps surpass it.

Time is eternal though, it is something that will always be around.
We'd be getting into a philosophical debate mixed in with some semantics, but time is often described as infinite, not eternal.The distinction is mostly only clear when discussing more religious philosophy, but since the spirtual/religious/philosophical themes are pretty heavy in Diamond and Pearl, I feel like this would be taken this into consideration. There's definitely a chance I'll eat my words one day, though.

looks like there are merchandise scans pertaining to M22 that have "mystery secrets" set to be revealed in/by February. (source: pokeshopper patreon scans looked at via new ruffledrowlit video)

Presumably our first gen 8 mon, it was obvious this was coming but it's nice to have some kind of confirmation that it'll be in the earlier part of the year

As long as "mystery secrets" end up being actually something interesting. Maybe it's because I got cynical, but the last times the secrets were underwhelming (thanks to the dataminers, mostly). I hope I'm wrong about this.
