We're very close to the reveal of Gen 8 it seems, rumours abound that it will be this coming week for Pokemon Day on the 27th February that we get a tease of the new games and that seems about right tbh for a timescale.

Rumours are that the versions are called Pokemon King and Queen due to hints from the Pokemon account on Twitter and I've seen November 21st banded about for the release, but that's a Thursday laugh.gif Either way I can't wait, it's going to surely be a huge jump from Sun and Moon with what the Switch can do, it might be asking too much for it to be the big open world game we've wanted for years but it's sure to be so much bigger and better than before, hopefully there can be two regions in it at least or something, and a bigger postgame.

I hope so too but I am very sceptical. Hope GF will prove me wrong though and snatch my wig and lashes.

So excited for this! Really hoping for graphics like Fire Emblem or Dragon Quest.

I hope the anime returns to usual as well, because Ash stuck in one location most of the time gets quite boring tongue.gif

I do wonder if theyíll bridge the anime with something separate as I imagine this will be the final series set in Sun & Moon and they wonít put out a new era until the games are established. But, Iím very much looking forward to having a new game for the Switch!

I reckon there will be another series of Sun & Moon. I remember Black & White was still airing about 6 months after X & Y came out.

There's no point releasing it on the 3DS, it's pretty much dead.

I do wonder if theyíre gonna do a sequel series or have this generation be three games within the region. I did think of royalty, but what I also thought of was a deck of cards. Maybe we could have Pokemon Jack or Pokemon Ace as that third game if they decide to go with the latter?

Fingers crossed this is an actual reveal and not some troll spin-off reveal but I can't see why it won't be, hype *.* That's 2pm our time which very conveniently is just as I finish work!

It's 7 minutes so hopefully we're treated to the starters, names and maybe some gameplay, I'm most excited to see what it looks like as a step up from SM/USUM!

Sword/Sheild, kinda lame. Starters look Meh, but I think I'll go with the Fire Bunny.
Late 2019 tho. Probably November. So far away.

I'm thoroughly whelmed.

The fire bunny is atrocious and the water starter looks like a Mudkip/Froakie hybrid. The grass monkey is cute at least. The games themselves don't look particularly impressive either. I've noticed random encounters are back, which is a shame, since the new approach was one the few things Let's Go actually got right.

I was hoping there would be a bit more change with the graphics, it looks like itís gone back to what Sun and Moon were like and stepped down from Letís Go.
It looks good enough but I was kinda hoping to be wowed
