There seem to be small amounts of new footage in there, and then, at the end, amazingly the first time we have seen Zacian and Zamazenta in game!!
This has absoluetly nothing to do with your comment but I got a notification saying you quoted my post, but you've quoted Prog's instead... did you quote me and then delete the quoted part XD?They've shown a couple trainers with pink, blue and green hair. Purple too, IIRC.
Yeah, I was gonna quote you hella earlier and the quote was still at the top of the reply in my post by accident. Nothing important, that I can remember. Haha. Sorry!
That what's been shown since like the first or second trailer.About the overview trailer, I think we got clear shots of two characters in the Champion's Cup.
The male character is clearer in the trailer then the female one. I do hope in any case they're not random trainers. I'd like them to be other rivals, but I doubt we'd have more then Hope, Bede, Marnie and also Leon; but I hope they won't be random trainer class or something like that, even if they won't have the same role in the story as the others.
Yeah, I just meant that we have a better shot of at least one of them.That what's been shown since like the first or second trailer.
But I'm really starting to think that the bracket is rigged as such that you never fight the random trainers you walk in with and you only fight special NPCs until you get to the tiers the rivals are on.
True. I mean it does look like it's from a later build anyway.Yeah, I just meant that we have a better shot of at least one of them.
Given that it's a tournament style, I guess they'll either have only 8 completing the Gym Challenge, or that there's still a Victory Road-like route to stop the rest. Given how new this format is, and how little they said, we can't know for sure.
I don't think it'll be rigged in terms of lore/in game reasoning though. I just think it'd make more sense to have defined NPCs in the tournament....expecially if it means more complex team and advanced AI.
That’s what I meant when I said earlier that I want the two character appearing in the trailers, in the champion’s cup, to be definite, detailed npcs. Hopefully they went that direction.To be honest I'll be a little disappointed if the tournament at the end is largely us battling nobodies. Battling nobodies is what Victory Road is for.
Honestly I'd rather fight the gym leaders again then fight nameless trainers.
I think this is one strength to having a large cast of characters, because then you can have an entertaining tournament that people can feel invested in because most of the participants have names and have appeared in the story at least once before. (I think My Hero Academia does this pretty well)
Here's a thought, it's possible they might create some unique characters solely to appear in the tournament. I mean they created Ryuki seemingly just for the Champion title defence battle so they could do the same here. Especially if they're not creating an elite four nothing is stopping them from adding some unique characters to the tournament "just because".
Sun and Moon were kinda unique having most of its elite four members show up in the story beforehand, usually you don't encounter them until you're fighting them.
