Do this with Explorers and I'm so fucking in.
It’s the same as usual, although you can choose the break the old gender-locks on certain species if you choose a species for yourself (i.e: can play male skitty, female machop)
Edit: While writing this comment, I was mashing through the quiz for another test run, picking all the top options. Despite the fact I selected a Male player, I got Hasty Eevee. Genderlocks have been removed, or at least for some species.
It is interesting to note that all these Pokemon also debuted in Advanced Generation era Pokemon movies, the first 4 were in Lucario and the Mystery of Mew and Munchlax was even earlier in Destiny Deoxys. All of them but Lucario appeared in Advanced Generation episodes too. Not to mention being main character partner Pokemon except Weavile.If they only add in a few gen 4+ 'mons, I'm going to guess that all statue Pokemon--Bonsly, Lucario (already confirmed) Mime Jr., Weavile--from the original will make it in.
Edit: And Munchlax.
So, they are pulling a Crash?I found some sales figures for the series from a few sources, and I can say pretty confidently that at least over 5 million copies were sold for the Rescue Team titles, over 5 million copies sold for the Explorers titles, around 1 million copies sold for Gates to Infinity, and over 1 million copies sold for Super Mystery Dungeon.
So as many people probably already expected, this large drop off in the later titles is likely why the series went on hiatus for a few years, and why a remake was probably seen as a smart move too. Figure out the core of what people loved from the start and make a charming game that hopefully sells well, then add on to it in a sequel which could be brand new or another remake of the other well selling entry.
