Haha no biggy! They’re the parts that make up an atom. The nucleus has protons and neutrons, and the electrons orbit the nucleus. Protons have a positive charge while electrons have a negative charge, and neutrons having no charge. That’s why I thought electron would work better than neutron, since it would make that positive/negative thing.I'm not good at science. I don't even know what's those things are
Oh lol I thought Neutrons are the negative ones cause they make up the nucleus with the protons. And then Electron can be the third gameHaha no biggy! They’re the parts that make up an atom.

Isn't that basically the same as Sun and Moon?It seems as if though almost every idea has been explored within this thread, so what about Night and Day? Somewhat silly, I know, but I sincerely can't think of anything else!
I love the time and thought you put into this explanation. It makes sense, it’s clear, and it’s absolutley a brilliant idea. Thank you for that.It really depends on what the next game(s) would be, right?
Going ahead and making assumptions based on rumors going around lately, along with my own speculation:
It looks to be a new Kanto/Johto story, one that will most likely pickup the Rainbow Rocket plot thread. The heavy Eevee focus has me thinking the main character starts with an Eevee, in a sort of inverse of Yellow-- which is nice, as Eevee's the only starter we've never actually been able to start with.
If it's a paired game, which seems more likely-- I vote Pokemon East and West. A game that contrasts the more metropolitan and genetics/technology-focused Kanto with the traditional, spiritual Johto.
But with the move to a home console for the first time, I think it's at least possible that they try for a single release. I had taken B2W2 as a signal that they were done with unpaired games entirely (I never believed Z was coming), but this may be a special case. I'd be surprised, but you never know.
In which case, I have several ideas:
If you're making a new Kanto game, you'd probably use the old color-based naming scheme. If you're bringing Kanto into the modern era, the obvious cover mascot to me is Mewtwo. He occupies the same role in the game that other cover mascots from gen 2 and up have had. Mewtwo's really the only endboss Pokemon that hasn't been on the cover of a mainline game. If Mewtwo's on the cover, I'd think the game would be called Pokemon Violet.
(Pokemon Purple is also possible, and one of the most recently added Pokemon being named Poipole could almost feel like a hint in this direction, but I just don't think the title sounds as good as Violet).
But another thing to consider is that, rather than making Kanto no longer the odd-man-out, you could lean into the "starter on the cover for Kanto games" thing and put Eevee on the cover. After all, we had the Pikachu version and now this would be the Eevee version. But "Brown" sounds terrible, so I started looking up synonyms. I could get on board with Pokemon Hazel.
And if you wanted to add Johto-significance, I guess you could do something like Pokemon Bronze. It's brown for Eevee and it's a precious metal like the gen 2 games. I'm not as fond of it though.
But then you could also consider that the cover legends for the Kanto games (other than Yellow) weren't just weird because they were starters and not legends, but they were the final evolutions to the starters. So maybe instead of Eevee, you could put all its evolutions on the cover? A game cover that looks like EvoBoost or that T-shirt with the Eevee jumping through a prism would be neat. Really emphasizes what's unique about Eevee.
In which case, I think the title would have to be Pokemon Rainbow, which I've been mentally restricting myself from guessing up until now because 1. it doesn't sound very cool, and 2. in my mind, they kind of already used it? But that's actually not true at all, as Niji is an internal codename that the public was never supposed to know (and no one but diehard fans would). The title would have a double meaning as this is almost certainly a game with a big Rainbow Rocket focus. I think it's at least possible.
Anyway, I'm not leaning towards any of these in particular, I'm just spitballing.
