If we're getting regional forms, I'm hoping Hisuian Typhlosion isn't a bland piece of trash that abandons everything charming about its pre-evolutions while having no personality of its own like regular Typhlosion is.
According to the leaker, H Decidueye is a mess while H Typhlosion and H Samurott are very similar to their original forms. Samurott is still on 4 legs.

He, etc.
Given the way the designs have gone lately, my expectations for Typhlosion are high. All that's left to do is hope that the regional forms or whatever are actually gonna happen.

I was wondering...Consindering there's just one version this time and that probably breeding will not be included in the game, how will we get the other two starters? I mean, if we cannot breed our starter, I doubt anyone would give it away for trade.

Khu is full of crap so I wouldn't be surprised if his taste in Pokemon designs sucks, lol

I used to be really against the idea, but I think I've slowly warmed up to the idea :enzap:

I just hope the designs are creative and not just a form for the sake of forms. Maybe some new secondary typings would be cool too

Postgame or event gifts maybe? Is there a reason why fans think breeding won't be included? Was there a rumor about this?

The leaker said that only one thing among breeding (something else) and candies will be back in Legends. Candies are most likely to be the ones to be back.

If I had a nickel for every time a leaker was actually correct, I’d have about $0.20. Which isn’t much.

You weren't around in Generation I? Back to the basics.

I won't be surprised if the starters are in the wild somewhere in Legends, actually, considering the game's greater focus on dex completion.

Given what we've seen of the Professor so far, it definitely seems in character at some point that he would lose the other Starters who escape into the wild and you have to catch them as some part of late game side quest. :unsure:

Yeah, I see you getting the other two starters at some point somehow, if they are in the dex. Are they confirmed to be though? It was always my understanding that since they were brought to Hisui with the professor, they therefore are not native to Hisui and therefore not in the dex you are making.

I don’t think we have official confirmation that they’re in the ‘dex; but I imagine they are. Even if they aren’t native to Hisui, I can see the professor using them as “training” task for how to capture various forms of information.

And I’m also sure they’ll give us some way of obtaining the other two; even though they’ve moved away from the “gotta catch ‘em all” slogan, they’re aware that the collecting aspect of the game is popular. Even with Dexit, almost every Pokémon has been obtainable (barring a handful of Mythicals) in gen 8.

I was. But 25 years have past and I doubt they would go back to that.

Agreed. And even back then, you had the potential to get a complete ‘dex (minus Mew) via link trade. Not that it helped me any… I was 19 when I started playing Blue (1998). I didn’t know anyone my age playing, and I wasn’t about to approach little kids and ask if they wanted to trade Pokémon lol.

Well, they’ll figure out some way. "Back to the basics" doesn’t really mean you abandon the features that make the player's life better. The starters are the marketing for a game, they'll be made available somehow.

They're already available. You pick one and trade for the others, giving up on something rare like a shiny or a trade evolution.

I could see one of them being a post-game gift (see XY), but all three would be overkill.

I think, with the de-emphasis on multiplayer and the lack of breeding in this game, that they’re not gonna require trading to complete the dex. Like I’m even willing to bet the trade evos will have an alternate method. I’m definitely expecting the starters you didn’t pick to either be given as gifts or able to be found in the wild somewhere
