I'm pretty sure Reshiram is still Ubers and while he might not be used as much as the other legendaries it's still pretty strong for OU and he has very strong Fire STAB.
Now Kyurem Black is OU because for a strong Pokemon with 170 attack he only has Dragon Claw and Fusion Bolt and no usable physical Ice STAB relying on Ice beam instead. Why doesn't he get Ice Punch? Maybe with the introduction of Ice Hammer he might get one.
Some Pokemon really should have their move sets fixed. Like Gardevoir should learn Boomburst
170 attack means nothing when the only physical ice move it gets is freeze shock.

Speaking of Megas, Do you think GF will bring back New Mega evolution well and improved in future games, or GF got rid off Megas altogether
I'd like to think they would, but after the way they were handled in Sun/Moon, who knows.

Besides, there's other ways they can empower older Pokemon without mega evolution. They could invent new gameplay mechanics.

I have reasons to believe that the next generation of pokemon will take place on Spain. Hear me out on this one, I know it is pure speculation on my sude but you see junichi masuda was tweeting alot about spain lately also if you remeber during the ultra beast task mission looker always enter the door speaking spanish of some sort. I dont know maybe it is just me theorizing stuff but I really think spain will be the next setting
He does that to Portugal too, but it's just because he's traveling there and being interviewed there.
He did a lot about Shanghai last year and nothing about a Shanghai region happened. (Well, we got Chinese games, but still.)

And no, Looker speaks a random language everytime he enters, not just Spanish.

If you propose that Spain will be the template for a future region you have to take into account that it will share many connections with the Kalos region. You may not be able to travel there, but it's be unreasonable to expect the games to not future NPCs, Pokemon, and elements from Kalos.

Speaking of Kalos, If we got a region based off the UK, we could perhaps reach Kalos through a channel-tunnel like area.
I would actually like to see a region based off the former Yugoslavia, but I doubt that will happen.

I think that we are only seeing new regions in first pair games only. That probably explains why we only got Kalos in XY and no other game. Alola would probably be the same and remain in SM. I don't see a return to Kalos at this point.

I found something that might confirm that Stars is fake.

So?

This thread is called Rumors/Fakes/leaks discussion.

We're still free to talk about stars or anything else regardless of what new "evidence" comes up against it.

I'm still of a mind that Gamefreak is aware that the 3DS has long reached its limit and the time to evolve is soon.

But why the needless pretense when you could just, you know... post it?
I already did. It's in the Stars discussion thread.

It's an interview that suggests that GameFreak is interested in making games for the Switch, but doesn't know when. This means that a Switch Pokemon game is not in development right now.

Right, but if it's relevant to mention here in addition to the Stars thread, then it would be helpful to include the link in this thread as well, instead of making a vague statement that adds an extra step of somebody needing to ask you what it is that you've found.

No it doesn't. It means they want to test out the switch for future entries. Pokémon Stars, being a rumoured third version, would be the perfect game to test out the Nintendo Switch with for future generational games, as others have already said.

Gen 8 would be perfect for testing the Switch. I can't wait for Switch to get gen 8 as the first main series games on it.

Not really. A new generation will possibly be like XY. It was all shine, but no substance. While a third version already has many things in place. It's easier for them to adapt Alola to the Switch than start anew. This will also test the Switch with software that they can better and enhance, than start over and give us a generation that would possibly need an expanded version.

I'd like a Asian Region, but not based on Japan. Heck GF, there are more places in Asia other than Japan!

You'll really regret saying gen VIII will definitely be the first games on Switch if the Stars rumours are true. Also, if they use Pokémon Stars to test out the Switch, then they'll be able to make Gen VIII as perfect as possible, with less of a chance to get things wrong, having already tested everything.
