Will the stories of the DLC be separate from each other and the base game?
My guess is that the Teal Mask storyline in Kitakami will definitely be separate from the base game's main story given that they advertised being able to go there as soon as you're enrolled in the academy. However, given that the Indigo Disk storyline directly deals with the contents of Heath's journal and the questions pondered by it at the end, Blueberry Academy is likely to be either post game exclusive or split into pre-game and post-game segments in order to directly tie the DLC to the main game's plot. At the very least, I hope the Indigo Disk storyline intersects with the main plot of Paldea. It would just feel weird for the conclusion of Heath's Scarlet/Violet Book and the Terastal phenomenon to not only be finished outside of Paldea but be a completely separate narrative from everything before it.Will the stories of the DLC be separate from each other and the base game?
That's assuming most if not all testers are not doing their job and are instead busy taking notes the whole day.Considering most true leaks come from people supposedly testing the game...maybe they need a better vetting process?
Because if it's true and the play testers are those leaking game info, then maybe the full blame isn't completely on Game Freak and Nintendo since they probably never got the needed feedback from the testers that were too busy making notes about what the new Pokémon are based on for internet points.

Nah, that's just unlikely and shifting blame. Even Khu said the game was in a bad state months in advance. The problems were obvious.
@Greninjaman The two characters are centred in both posters, though. And they're from that new academy. I suppose they're important in both stories, and not just a cameo in one of the two.
That's an interesting way to look at it, but not entirely true as there are hundreds of games that had a very messy release period due to being "incomplete" or appearing "unfinished" in regards to either gameplay or performance, and they have all in some instance had extremely heavy updates, and workarounds to make them better experiences, and the developers for the most part were very transparent in dealing with it.Is it possible that they can’t fix the issues without remaking the whole game? As an IT major (going for a Master’s degree) currently having a course on software testing, one of the most important concepts is that the further along you are in development the harder it is to test and maintain issues with the software. It’s possible these issues are (unfortunately) baked into the game’s code by now. Or am I mistaken?
I think it might be more of a not-too-subtle "take that!" to real-world Japan's xenophobia issues.Hmmm, Blueberry Academy is underwater... Atlantis connection again?
Also the rival is a Japanese person who dislikes people from other regions. Are they poking fun of the Japanese fans who were mad at SV for featuring non-Japanese characters? lol
When and where were those three stated to be Japanese? We know Carmine and Kieran are from Kitakami, so that all but says they are. Also, what does Kieran's name imply?Also...weren't Iono, Rika, and Larry Japanese? If anything, regardless of the setting, the cast of SV was probably even more diverse than the other non-Japanese region games. So these hypothetical people who hated the lack of Japanese people they're supposedly making fun of completely missed 2 of the gym leaders and an elite 4 member.
Either way, it's probably a subtle xenophobia thing. But that depends on if Carmine and Kieran are even Japanese to begin with (they sound more Galarian given Kieran's name). The field trip sounds like it's attended by multiple schools.
