That logo is also present in Milo's gym.

And on his uniform. -just looked back through some trailers-
At this point, though. Unless it's specifically stated as a town name, it could be something like Hotel Ritchissime or all of the restraunts. Milo could just work there or be the first gym leader with an in-game last name.

I know this is already being buzzed about in other threads but it is news and I figure I can just point out that they mention in there that they'll be adding more throughout the month so... yaaaay every day this month is a potential news date. XD

@Aulos
Answering you here because it fits this thread better. Overworld encounters will be present throughout all the game, it's not exclusive to the Wild Area. You can see Woolo in a Route 1 screenshot, and inside the mine, for example. I know the way they presented it may have been confusing, but Wild Area is just the area where the weather changes constantly.

I think the main problem is that even considering the type of format this live is, they’re really shaking too little with too much time between each snippet.

I honestly don’t understand why even in their concept art the protagonist’s house doesn’t have a room for the mother/parents.

It’s a little thing, but it’s quite baffling. The concept looks quite nice, though.

After hearing the game informer thing, if they do plan to not reveal any form of starter evolutions, well the designs better look freakin good, cause if the evolve into designs people won't like, that'll lead to a lot of disappointment.

That's kind of the norm, though. Starter evolutions haven't really been all around great for a long while.

Speaking from a purely design stand point, Gen 7 was pretty good imo.
Yeah, also I love Torracat and even Incineroar (which I hated at first but now love), Decidueye, Primarina, Braixen, and Chesnaught. Gen 6 and 7 had my fave designs, including for starter evos

I disagree. Gen 1 has the most boring starter final evos, hands down, and they've gradually gotten better. They've upped the creativity each gen, although they could take a bit of a break from the extremely humanoid designs that they've gravitated toward the past decade.

-hands up because she still prefers them over everything else- The more "creative" designs of recent years make me not want to evolve my starters.

But point really just being that people disliking and being disappointed by starter evolution designs is typical and pretty much expected. Can't really say that they had better be really good designs because they just will never be unanimously liked. Some will like them, some won't. It's unavoidable.

This. Everyone has different tastes and every final form will have its fans, no matter what. I thought everyone loathed Incineroar until I recently learned it's extremely popular in Japan.

And anyone wanting to see the final forms can just... Look thenm up in a leak that will be 100% out the day of release.

That being said, I'd like the middle stages please.

XD Japan loves Incineroar because it's based on a pop culture icon. The rest of the world doesn't have that bias.
