Interesting...That would be an acceptable reason, I suppose.
It’d certainly fits. I mean, it’s fine to know the typings of the legendary if there are legends and stories about them (and for some, the typings is obvious by the stories on them), but if not, not knowing it and finding it in the game is quite interesting.

For this point, I don’t think that it’s due an overreaction from criticism on the former gen’s marketing cycle, but possibly a new idea on how to present the legendaries.

Although I guess we’ll have to wait and see what happens this month.

I wonder if we'll see something this week.
Apparently, Pokenchi will have news this weekend. However, we know that they usually just rehash already revealed info. So there's a possibility that we will have news on Wednesday/Thursday (Starter's evo pls) that Pokenchi will cover.

...or they'll just rehash the Gen 1 Gigantamax, Charizard and co reveal.

I don't think we will see the first or second stages of the starters before the datamine/release.
Not sure about second stages but I definitely think we will be getting the first stages due to that poll that asked fans if they would want them revealed prior to release. I believe it ended with the majority wanting them revealed.

It did, but... idk, Gamefreak doesn't seem to wanna show them off. Of course, we do still have 10 days left of October and 2 weeks before the games after that, so anything is possible

Does anyone think we could see something tomorrow? I know we haven't had an announcement for anything for tomorrow, but it's one of the last Wednesdays this month. If not, maybe next Wednesday, the 30th?

I could see something coming the 30th. I am not sure if halloween is a thing in Japan but, it would be interesting to have something interesting happen.

Maybe on the 30th? On the other hand, I can see them going dead silent until release.

I hope we'll get something tomorrow, but I honestly think the next trailer will be on the first Wednesday of November.

I’m thinking with how things have been slow this cycle we’ll probably be getting biweekly trailers until release. Maybe weekly come November.

But I’d love to be pleasantly surprised

I dont think we’ll be getting anything too major until probably after the release of the game. But, i do have a feeling that GF will probably officially showcase impidimp sometime soon before Halloween hopefully
