Yeah, I was not too happy that Necrozma hurts Lunala. And it doesn't look as good either after the fusion.

But that won't be an issue this time around. No matter what either of them fuse with, I doubt they could look much worse.

They'll probably look better. Most people say their designs are too complicated, but they feel like they could stand to have a more complicated design to me.

plz no pokemon fusion. i have avoided buying b2w2 and USUM because it looked like fusion was going on.
Three things:

1) If that's the case, I hope you didn't buy SM either, because it features Lusamin fusing with Nihilego. And Pokémon-Human fusion is an abomination. It's the worst kind of fusion.

2) BW2 fusion is not really fusion: it's the fusion of two Pokémon that used to be one. Not the fusion of two different Pokémon species.

3) Do yourself a favour and play BW2. It's one of the best games ever. ;)

I think Sword/Shield will have a Gale of Darkness-style plot. The Dynamax might be operated by a mysterious hacker organization of same name.

I bought sun because it wasnt apparent fusion was a focus. Yeah ive heard about people really enjoying b2 and i thought about grabbing one sometime. However i also have seen people not buy it for the same reason i didnt. So not alone haha.

I do think that Necrozma Dawn Wings-Dusk Mane is quite different in concept then a hypothetical presence of the Original Dragon in Gen 5 remakes. If the dislike is simply about fusions, and the similarity with other monster franchises, I get it, but Megas, Battle Bond and the Lusamine-Nihilego fusion are already established, and I prefer seeing the Original Dragon above all of them (expecially the human-Pokémon fusion, which I disliked in Digimon as well). I do wonder how they’ll implement it, though, given that Reshiram and Zekrom would likely be exclusive to their version (on that note, I also wonder if and what they’ll do to power up the Creation trio).

In regards of the themes of the game, competitiveness is likely a major theme in the Galar region, given how important battles are and how respected the Champion seems to be.

I still think the third legendary might be behind the Dynamax phenomenon, and I do want to see how it ties with the plot.

On the whole fusion thing, it makes sense for both Kyurem and Necrozma, it makes sense for Kyurem because you're basically putting the pieces back together while Necrozma needs a constant source of light to lessen the pain that it has and eventually, making the pain go away completely by reaching its Ultra form.

If fusion is indeed a thing with the new legendary mascots again, this time it would make a lot more sense for it to be between Zacian and Zamazenta rather than involving the third legendary again.

Battle Bond
I don’t think it counts as a fusion because... no fusion takes place. It’s basically bond to such an extent that your vitals like heartbeat and feelings synchronise.

Ash never physically fuses with Greninja and is certainly not comparable to Necrozma or Kyurem fusions.

I meant to compare Battle Bond to human/mon fusions in other franchises, not to Necrozma or Kyurem’s.

It’s also different to Lusamine and Nihilego, howewer, I dislike both, as I normally do human-mon ‘fusions’.

I still don’t think it even counts as a human/mon fusion since no actual ‘fusing’ takes place. Ash has independent thinking, Greninja has independent thinking, both have their separate bodies.

It’s more comparable to telepathy than fusion imo. The only argument likening it to fusion would be Greninja resembling Ash; which is implied to be a coincidence since the previous hero Greninja looked identical to the present Ash-Greninja and I doubt people 1000 or so years ago dressed the same as Ash.

Synchronisation is a much appropriate term than Fusion (which is borderline misleading imo).

But I never called it fusion, though. I mentioned it together with Megas and Lusamine-Nihilego fusion as they’re similar to features in other mon franchises.

This had implied to me that you thought of battle bond as pretty comparable to Ash Greninja, which I think is a different beast from the Human/Mon fusions in other franchises, where if I'm not mistaken the bodies fuse physically.
