There's not much talk of sea pollution in Pokemon at all, though. I don't think we even have any official reference to it, outside of regional forms whose purpose is to take care of it.But if he drowns all the humans there won't be anybody polluting the sea anymore
Maxie never suggests anything about building industries, just vague promises about human development. And considering solar and wind power is a common thing in the Pokemon world, that doesn't have to mean pollution is the result.where he is presumably going to build his industries
How does the song being creepy suggest that he's going to pollute the world?Then there is the creepy drought theme song.
He certainly learned to trust others and ask for help instead of just relying on himself.I don't remember Gladion getting character development (he always wanted to stop his mother and never did)
"Because Null and I have to make it on our own. And I don't ever want to forget that."
"Ngh! So I'm still not strong enough.""All the days that I struggled alone and lonely... it was all for nothing? Is that it?"
"Maybe helping one another out isn't so bad...""<Player>! Hau! I leave Faba to you!"
His attitude towards Hau changes over the course of the game, too.I've been waiting for you. To thank you. For what you did for Lillie. For our mother. I appreciate it. Maybe more than you know.
There's just a reference to pollution that I can remember in the Hoenn games, but it is by a random old man in the beach of Route 110 and it is more like an obligatory environmentalist message.There's not much talk of sea pollution in Pokemon at all, though. I don't think we even have any official reference to it, outside of regional forms whose purpose is to take care of it.
In fact, him and Hau are foils of one another.His attitude towards Hau changes over the course of the game, too.
I read that Leon uses Charizard, Aegislash, Haxorus, Dragapult, the Starter that beats yours, and something else the leaker couldn't rememberIs there any information on rival’s/GL’s teams? I’d be willing to bet that Marnie will have Grimmsnarl, Gothitelle, Morpeko but am curious about the rest of her team. Also Bede’s - will he have Hatterene and a psychic themed team? What are the rest of Leon’s Pokémon?
Don't forget Milo and Eldegoss. Also... I just realized that Bede is the first male Fairy Leader in the series.I read that Leon uses Charizard, Aegislash, Haxorus, Dragapult, the Starter that beats yours, and something else the leaker couldn't remember
I don't recall if it came from the same leaker, but I have seen these Pokémon mentioned as the aces of these characters:
Nessa - Drednaw
Kabu - Centiskorch
Allister - Gengar (presumably Bea would use Machamp)
Opal - Alcremie
Melony - Lapras
Raihan - Duraludon
Oleana - Garbodor
Bede - Hatterene
Marnie - Grimmsnarl
Since Bede takes up Opal's position as the leader of her Gym, he might have more of a Fairy-based team, despite running Duosion in that one trailer.
That is true, although what stands out there is that everyone on that list has a Pokémon that can Gigantamax. Eldegoss, so far as we know, cannot (and I think might have been ruled out entirely, I'll need to double-check), so I wonder if Milo uses something different in the post-game. Maybe Apple.Don't forget Milo and Eldegoss. Also... I just realized that Bede is the first male Fairy Leader in the series.
Technically, Let's Go had Giovanni "retire" and then be replaced by Blue for rematches in the post-game.Now that I think about it, this is the first game that I see Gym Leaders retire during the events of the game, since Piers is replaced by Marnie, Opal is replace by Bede and (at least in Shield) Melony is replaced by Gordie (don't know how that scenario plays out in Sword).
On the first point, a recent pic revealed Milo to have a G-Max Flapple, making me think that either he replaces Eldegoss (since the pic is from a rematch), or I was wrong and his ace is Flapple.That is true, although what stands out there is that everyone on that list has a Pokémon that can Gigantamax. Eldegoss, so far as we know, cannot (and I think might have been ruled out entirely, I'll need to double-check), so I wonder if Milo uses something different in the post-game. Maybe Apple.

Wow....never expected that especially Chairman Rose being like the introduction person to the player knowing his later role in the story neat touch. Also introducing Leon was great (oh Leon I'm gonna end your champion career very soon). I like that they change up the start of a new game very new and fresh!So, since this is the SWSH story thread (and it even has SPOILERS in the title), I guess I'm allowed to post this here. And if I'm not, I can always take it down or one of the admins will delete it anyways.
So, somebody managed to get their hands on a copy of Pokémon Sword and manage to stream it on YouTube for about two hours or so and, before the stream got taken down, I did manage to see part of the intro and I thought "Why not post it here and see what people think of it?".
Apparently, the games starts off by throwing you right into the trainer customisation with no message form the professor whatsoever (or, at least that's what it looks like, since the stream started off with the guy already having chosen his PC and name). Then, the actual game starts off by showing you the page of what looks to be the Pokémon world's version of YouTube, with a video sponsored by the company that has the triple C logo showing what I assume to be the opening ceremony of the Galar League, held in the big stadium that we've already seen during the trailer that introduced Chairman Rose. Speaking of him, Chairman Rose walks in and starts things off by giving the usual "Welcome to the world of Pokémon" speech and, like previous professors, he throws a Poké Ball (so as to show what a Pokémon is), with the Pokémon that comes out being a Cufant. He then introduces himself, before announcing that an exhibition match against Galar's undefeated champion is about to begin. Then, a bunch of pyrotechnics go off in a line, at the end of which, Leon and his Charizard pop up and pull a pose, which all of the people in the stadium try mimic. Their opponent is revealed to be Raihan and his partner, Duraludon. Raihan then talks about how, no matter how strong Leon is, he's gonna defeat him this time, to which Leon responds with the "You know I don't lose battles, Raihan!" line that we've already seen. He then orders his Charizard to Dynamax (without recalling it back into its ball, interestingly enough), who then starts to glow red before turning into G-Max Charizard. Before to camera turns to the skies and the logo of the games pop up. We then cut away to the outside of our house, as Hop, alongside a Wooloo, are going along the path towards the house's door. Inside, the PC is seen watching the video we saw earlier on his/her phone, before Hop bursts in and greets you. He than comments on your new phone, asks if you're watching the match on it and says that the best way to cheer Leon (to whom he refers to as "Lee") is to pull of his signature Charizard pose (which, I assume, is the pose he pulled off earlier). Your mom than come in and says that she didn't expect Hop to be here and then asks if today isn't that day, to which Ho responds that it indeed is and that's why he cam to check on the PC. And that's about all I could see before the stream got claimed.
So, what do you guys think of the first few minutes of the games? Personally, I'm still surprised that they introduced a version of what's basically PokéTube. It's just so... unexpected and surprising? Makes me wonder if it's actually gonna play a bigger role or if it's hinting at some kind of mechanic that we haven't seen yet (like maybe the player gets to record part of their gameplay and post it online or share it with their friends). Or maybe I'm just overthinking it and it's just there for flavor and worldbuilding. Regardless, I think it's pretty interesting. And also kind of interesting (in regards to the anime, at least, since I guess it won't actually affect the games in any way) is that they show that you don't actually need to use a Poké Ball in order to Dynamax/G-Max a Pokémon. I guess that chances of Ash actually Dynamaxing (or maybe even Gigantamaxing) his Pikachu have grown.
I think the drought is a metaphor for global warming and the reason the song is creepy is to portray the terrible consequences it might have on planet. Tabitha's subplot when he realizes that their actions might destroy the planet also implies this. Especially since Maxie refuses to listen to Tabitha's desperate plea because he is in denial about the problem. So he is kind of like people who deny the effects of global warming in real life?How does the song being creepy suggest that he's going to pollute the world?
I think I recall seeing someone mention Rose doing that, but it could have been a fake leak that got lucky and got something right.Wow....never expected that especially Chairman Rose being like the introduction person to the player knowing his later role in the story neat touch.
