Yeah and having Leaf or Red depending on if the player chooses the Female or Male character respectively would take far too much effort on their part. They couldn't do it in HG/SS either. I mean, it's not like Game Freak has ever made a choice based on the gender you picked *cough*Gold/Lyra, Brendan/May, Lucas/Dawn, Calem/Serena*cough*.

*rolls eyes super hard*

): I bet adult Leaf would look very nice.

Leaf may be doomed to be forgotten, but no one is forgotten as Kris :(. Lyra is to diffrent to be the same character but upgraded.

I'm still holding out hope that Hilda is the canon protag of black and white just so we'd have a little diversity in canon protags even if it's just one or two if Serena or Dawn get canon protagonist-ized.

Here's hoping they show up during either the battle tree or generations.

I loved Kris's design and I wish I could see an updated version of her. ): She was first girl. Always will be special.

So did the Train On trailer just confirm that Exeggcute evolves into Alolan Exeggutor with a Leaf Stone, just like normal? I find that a little weird. If it's not a different evolution method, how will we make it happen in future games that aren't in Alola? I wonder if it's the same story for Alolan Raichu & Alolan Marowak?
I'm seeing it like how we evolve Eevee into Glaceon or Leafeon; you have to do it in a certain area. Except this will be on a Regional scale, as apposed to just near a rock.

They should add some female protagonists to the Battle Tree. They'll probably add Dawn, May and Serena/Shauna.

There hasn't been any news regarding anything being revealed next month before the game's release right?

I imagine we won't. We'll just have to transfer them like people figure we will have to transfer the old ones for Sun & Moon.

I hope we can get the regular forms in a future game(s) this Gen (i.e. Trade instead of Transfer). That would make these "Alolan Evolutions" basically version exclusive evos like Lycanroc's Forms Then maybe for future Gens, have a Safari Zone-like area (that's maybe under a dome) that "simulates the environment of Alola". That way you could encounter the Alolan forms there, & evolve Pikachu/Cubone/Exeggcute into their Alolan Forms while inside.

As far as the male and female protagonists go the females appear as the main anime side kick 90% of the time safe for leaf who didn't exist back then and was replaced by misty, and Hilda/Rosa no idea why though

For generations its only fair that the male protagonist get their 5 seconds of fame since its all they're ever getting and even then they are hardly on screen. I do understand why people are pissed about red always taking leafs place though.

Red is the counterpart of Ash so of course he always take priority over Leaf. Leaf isn't that well known anyway.

Personally I'd rather have my female protagonists get attention in the medium I actually digest instead of them playing second fiddle to a runt who's been ten years old since before I was even ten years old and can't even beat a pokemon league because the writers aren't creative enough to make a new protagonist every once in a while.

Well, it could be that we only have CoroCoro left in November. :/
Which would leak five or six days before the games release... which means the games might've been obtained early and their content poured over the internet already.

Not that that matters to me, I'm European -.-

I am in the same boat as you. I hope the last news will be the most mysterious. :)

Something not mentioned yet is that likely at some point in the game, Lillir cuts her hair, dons a hoodie and becomes a Pokemon trainer. In the Train On 3 trailer, you see a character with that look behind a text bubble that is Lillie speaking. I doubt its the PC, as they show SHO throughout the trailers with the default look.

Becouse I don't see the hair cutting part this shot is really zoomed in.

Also that's...more like a parka than a hoodie. It still fits her style. All she probably did was change bags. Maybe you three are on your way to the leauge construction site and the npcs finally wear appropriate clothes.

The only thing that screenshot really proves is that Lillie knows Gladion. Or if they are twins, she just dresses as him sometimes and does the twin thing.
