Posted by: Liаm Feb 23 2019, 12:58 PM

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.

Posted by: Whoody4Paramore Feb 23 2019, 02:44 PM

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 they’ll bridge the anime with something separate as I imagine this will be the final series set in Sun & Moon and they won’t put out a new era until the games are established. But, I’m 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.

Posted by: Codester X Feb 24 2019, 11:58 PM

I do wonder if they’re 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?

Posted by: Dexton Feb 26 2019, 02:55 PM



Announcements coming soon, likely for Gen 8's main series game for November release! Although it's strange nothings been leaked/advertised in Japan so far when normally they get info before English speaking coutries

This is it girls. Lettuce pray it will be epic.

Posted by: Whoody4Paramore Feb 26 2019, 05:11 PM

They've been posting the starters from each gen every day on Insta, so we should get a reveal of those!

Posted by: Liаm Feb 26 2019, 06:05 PM

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!

Posted by: Codester X Feb 26 2019, 06:34 PM

f*ck do I wanna wake up early for that or

oh well I did it for (G)I-DLE’s comeback today, I can do it for tomorrow tongue.gif

Posted by: Aaron. Feb 27 2019, 02:10 PM

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.

Posted by: Defaze Feb 27 2019, 02:14 PM

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.

Posted by: LMLou Feb 27 2019, 02:37 PM

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

Posted by: JJAAKKEE Feb 27 2019, 02:41 PM

ooo galor is the UK upside down

Posted by: Whoody4Paramore Feb 27 2019, 04:05 PM

Love the UK-inspired setting biggrin.gif

Posted by: Codester X Feb 27 2019, 04:51 PM

Sensing a recurring theme here

Gen 5: Western Hemisphere
Gen 6: Eastern Hemisphere
Gen 7: Western
Gen 8: Eastern

so I’m thinking Gen 9 will be another Western Hemisphere region?

Posted by: Whoody4Paramore Feb 27 2019, 05:47 PM

Hopefully the return of gyms makes the anime return to adventuring!

Posted by: Atonement Feb 27 2019, 06:33 PM

The starters are kinda cute but it's always the later stages that make the whole line look like a true mess. I mean, we can already tell that Scorbunny's final evolution is probably gonna be some ugly overgrown, buff hare. I'm leaning towards the monkey or maybe the water type.

The game looks nice but for me the most important/vital points are:
- the game shouldn't be too easy
- the game shouldn't be too short
and we won't know that until after release, so I can't really say anything yet about my level of excitement.


Posted by: Codester X Feb 27 2019, 06:34 PM

I'm already a Sobble stan just from that clip alone

Scorbunny and JooE from Momoland give off similar energies

I'm already seeing Stonehenge and Westminster Abbey references

Posted by: Liаm Feb 27 2019, 06:59 PM

I don't want to say I'm underwhelmed, but I kinda am laugh.gif I LOVE the idea of a UK based region, but the starters while cute look a bit... basic? Like idk how to explain it, they kind of have too much of the same style and whilst they're different animals they just seem a bit similar.

I expected a bigger step up from Gen 7 graphically too, I guess it might be one of those that pops when you actually play it and they'll have added things etc. that show that. I'm still excited ofc! *.*

Posted by: Dexton Feb 27 2019, 11:21 PM

Great to see Chespin, Mudkip, and Chimchar all making returns!

Posted by: Envoirment Feb 27 2019, 11:42 PM

I like what I see, but am not that excited about it really. I'm hoping the game won't be too short/easy and that the evolutions for the starters will be decent!

There will indeed be another (presumably final) series of the Sun & Moon anime. Quite like the look of this, seems less slice of life than the previous S&M series.

Posted by: Umi Feb 28 2019, 06:11 PM

Similar thoughts to the rest of you guys really. Map looks beautiful and I'm OK with the starter first stages but it's all about the gameplay at this point. A couple of generations ago I would have trusted the gameplay to be solid but I'm terrifed of a Sun/Moon rerun at this point.

Posted by: Codester X Mar 1 2019, 12:14 AM

From the trailer, it seems very "back to basics" with the gym emblems, random wild encounters and stuff, but what threw me off was the football stadium and the jerseys at the end before they highlighted the starters. Is that going to be relevant in the story? Does Pokemon have a World Cup theme?

What I'm more interested is how everything is going to look come the 2020 tournament season.

I just want some cross-gen evolutions. The likes of Dunsparce, Stantler and Girafarig deserve their time to shine after 20 years.

Posted by: Codyclipse 🌙 Jun 4 2019, 06:02 PM

I know Gen 6 had Megas and Gen 7 had regional variants, I’d expect Gen 8 to come out with either something new or combining them both.

I just wish we got another Mystery Dungeon game sad.gif

Posted by: Oliver Jun 4 2019, 07:09 PM

Is this Switch only? It'll be a shame for the series to desert the handheld consoles.

Posted by: Liаm Jun 4 2019, 09:32 PM

There was a leak that had loads of evos for old Pokemon (like there was one for Dunsparce and one for Donphan) as well as Delta forms for Johto and Hoenn Pokemon but I'm assuming they were fake, you get so much shit coming out from people who know they can get a bit of clout while people are scrambling for info laugh.gif I hope we get "Galarian" forms though, I really liked the Alolan forms last time as it was an interesting way to breathe life into Pokemon that needed a bit of love to make them interesting again.

Apparently, and this seems more concrete, what we could be getting is armored Pokemon, which sounds even worse than Megas tbh

Of course it is, they're starting to ditch the 3DS now.

And the Switch can be handheld if you want it to be.

Loads of new stuff announced! The games are out on November 15!


Posted by: Codyclipse 🌙 Jun 5 2019, 03:41 PM



I still don’t understand what Dynamax is, is it just making them look bigger for enhanced visual effects? Also I’m liking how the “gyms” are stadiums in this!

Posted by: Liаm Jun 5 2019, 03:54 PM

Dynamax sounds like a failed DVD alternative from 2002 laugh.gif Not sure about the idea tbh, I assume it will be like when there was the bigger Totem Pokemon and they had increased stats. I just don't really see the point, I'd much rather have something a bit more novel and interesting like the Alolan forms were :/ If every Pokemon can have it it might at least be more interesting than Megas.

Posted by: Prettylittlebry Jun 5 2019, 04:14 PM

Corviknight and Wooloo are my faves so far. Also , Zacian is my fave of the legendaries so will be getting sword first

Posted by: Atonement Jun 5 2019, 04:49 PM

Corviknight, Wooloo and Eldegoss are queens tbh. I don't like that the legendaries embody the names of the game so literally.

I'm not here for the new generational gimmick and I wish they would stop them all. I think I would have liked it better if there were just particular Dynamax battles, instead of getting to Dynamax once per BATTLE. That's a whole ffing lot of Dynamaxing if I'm not gonna like using it.

The last game I played was Black and White so seeing these graphics and camera control was really something else. I know it's still probably subpar compared to other games/consoles but for a Pokémon game I think they slay. I also like that weather conditions will influence was Pokémon you will encounter.

Yeah me too, I don't think every gen needs a "gimmick" like this, I think it makes it less special too with it seemingly being anyone can go Dynamax in any battle. I'd like it if there were certain boss Pokemon like within the evil teams, the rival's starter or a gym leader's ace that kind of emphasised them or upped their stats to make them more a challenge, but if it's just gonna be any old thing in any old battle I don't see the point.

I'd much rather they fleshed out Alolan forms or Mega Evolution a bit more, as much as I wasn't a fan of the latter.

Posted by: lewistgreen Jun 5 2019, 10:03 PM

I cringed the whole way through at their presenters laugh.gif and Dynamax looks like a massive gimmick right now but I’m sure I’ll love it when I come to play it. Some of the gameplay looks fab!

Posted by: WhoOdyssey Jun 5 2019, 10:37 PM

Well it's not a Pokemon game without some sort of gimmick tongue.gif

Posted by: lewistgreen Jun 6 2019, 05:43 AM

I thought I read that Dynamaxing can only be done during certain parts of the game e.g. Gym Battles and certain Wild Zone areas and that’s it? Hardly fun if it’s every battle like 1:1 with Bill the Nerd and his Grimer laugh.gif

Posted by: Dexton Jun 6 2019, 08:53 AM

The footage reminded me a lot of the BotW world actually, which for a Pokémon game is spectacular.

Posted by: Envoirment Jun 6 2019, 07:04 PM

The game looks so good *_* I like the pokemon we've seen so far. Wooloo being my favourite - it better have a good evolution chain!

Posted by: Liаm Jun 11 2019, 05:27 PM

Only the Pokemon in the actual Galar Dex have been coded into the game - so you can only use those. Really bizarre decision :/

Posted by: Oliver Jun 11 2019, 05:48 PM

That is an incredibly strange decision to make. Who knows how many Pokemon are going to be included? :S

Posted by: Liаm Jun 11 2019, 08:12 PM

I might sound very cynical but it feels like this is leading up to the obligatory enhanced second version having them all, so people will buy Sword and Shield now bc of the Switch hype, then also buy the next one to get all the Pokemon laugh.gif Some people are saying that it's no different to when Sun and Moon didn't have the option of getting certain Pokemon until Pokemon Bank was updated for it, and like fine you can never obtain every Pokemon in every game but to not even code them in and never have the option of bringing them over.....

I'm not THAT bothered from a personal standpoint as I always tend to use new Pokemon in playthroughs anyway but it's just such a weird decision, it's going to limit the metagame for example.

UGH I skipped Let's No and will have to skip this too waiting for the re-release I guess. I mean, I'm the same as you: I always use the newest generation in my party in playthroughs, but I'm not gonna buy this game only for it to be re-released a year later with ALL Pokémon in it and likely a few new areas. I know it is all but confirmed but it'll probably happen.

Why does GameFreak keep on disappointing me. The last Pokémon game I played was Black or White (don't even remember which one I have) and I want to play a new Pokémon game but I don't want to settle.

As Animal Crossing is delayed this means there are no games coming in 2019 that I will want to buy.

Posted by: Defaze Jun 15 2019, 10:44 PM



Sorry, but these games looks awful.

The level of backlash GameFreak has been receiving after the cut Pokemon reveal is kinda unprecedentent for this series, but I must say, I'm glad they're finally on the receiving end of criticism. I've felt Pokemon fans at large have been wayyyy too lenient in the past, especially after the absolute shitshow GameFreak have consistently served with XY, SM, USUM and the worst offender, Let's Go. ORAS was the best of the 3DS era, but that was predominantly due to how amazing the original games were -- and even then they butchered key aspects like the Battle Frontier. I've been replaying Platinum, Heart Gold and Black 2 recently, and the absolute nosedive in quality the series took after the transition to 3D is honestly quite startling.

Graphics are not as important to me as actual gameplay and difficulty/post-game but even that I have little faith in tbh.

Posted by: cantthinkofaname Aug 7 2019, 01:30 PM



So new info from this trailer includes:
- Regional forms are back. Weezing, Zigzagoon and Linoone all confirmed to get new Galarian variants.
- Zigzagoon & Linoone's regional variant have received a third evo: Obstagoon.
- New Pokemon that changes formes depending on whether it has a full belly or whether it's hangry lol: Morpeko.
- New rivals: Bede who dresses like an old lady, and a goth chick called Marnie.
- New team: Marnie's fans call themselves Team Yell (oh lord) and they are basically just soccer hooligans.

I think I'm not forgetting anything.

Idk despite the flack this game has been getting I'm still excited to play it in November.

Posted by: Aaron. Aug 7 2019, 02:11 PM

Everything I'm seeing and viewing has left me really underwhelmed. Moving to the Switch was a risky move but I have yet to see the value in moving to a larger platform.

I've always enjoyed Regional Pokemon Types/Evolutions - so I will give them a point there. Hopefully there are some interesting choices they will make on the Pokemon because the threw we have seen so far are not good choices.

They've completely lost me with Full Belly and Hangry?! Like. Why?

Team Yell was when I turned off the video. This all looks really bad. I'll still buy/play but this looks awful.

Honestly I've been filling my spare time playing fan made Pokemon Games and they are a lot better and more advanced than the direction we are going now. I give them maybe one more game on the Switch until they give up and just focus on mobile gaming apps. Although I would not mind seeing a few remakes for the Switch.

Posted by: Dexton Aug 7 2019, 03:53 PM

- Galarian Weezing looks stupid
- Galarian Zigzagoon/Linoone look great, still not entirely sure of the inspiration though... Zigzagoon made me think of a mime at first but Linoone looks like a badger. Obstagoon is a bit meh. I don’t mind the design but I’d rather have regular evolutions to old Pokemon
- Morpeko looks stupid. It also looks completely made for the anime tbh, like how a Pokémon will look angry and change its pigment to display mood lmao. Also “Hangry” is very stupid I don’t care if it’s an official word now in the dictionary it’s dumb.
- Honestly Teams have been a complete waste of space for years now and only included to force a plot into a game. With now this game has open world like qualities they could’ve easily just had numerous “side quest” type things instead of an evil team. Again teams are very anime driven these days I feel like the game is becoming an afterthought
- I do like the idea of a Pokemon being different based on its hunger though. I don’t mean like adding hunger levels to every Pokemon but for example Snorlax. “Full Belly” could alternatively be an ability where a Pokémon’s attack/defence stats are doubled when its full and halved when its hungry. Feed it berries mid battle or something, add a “Forage” move where a Pokemon “searches nearby bushes for food” and picks up random food. Usually just HP restoring but they could have a small chance to increase stats. Unless I’m missing any other hungry Pokemon I’m pretty sure it’d just be Munchlax & Snorlax. Basically an ability like Pickup but for in battle

Morpeko is one of the worst Pokemon I've ever seen, they're not even remotely trying with the Pikachu clones now laugh.gif

I actually like it laugh.gif been waiting for a regional form for Weezing since Sun & Moon as there have been so many cool ideas out there but I think they did a good job here. Could have been cooler to go for a nuclear design instead though but I guess that wouldn't really fit the UK inspired region.

So how many Pikachu look-a-likes do we have now?

- Pichu/Raichu (duh)
- Plusle
- Minun
- Dedenne
- Pachirisu
- Emolga
- Togedemaru
- Mimikyu (well, sort of)
- Morpeko

Marrill also felt like a Pikachu inspired Pokemon at the time.

Am I forgetting any?

I laughed when I saw Jacob Rees-Smog in the comments! laugh.gif

Posted by: ITz Cody Aug 7 2019, 08:45 PM

Not sure if the Zigzagoon Line was the right pick to introduce it but I LOVE the idea of a regional variant-only evolution.

Morpeko is the definition of trying too hard

Posted by: lewistgreen Aug 7 2019, 09:09 PM

More regional variants please!

Posted by: Liаm Aug 7 2019, 09:57 PM

Other regional evoltuons from the rumours were Meowth and Farfetch'd, I really like the idea too though! I think the Weezing one should have been an evolution maybe. I like the Linoone one but it's the same typing as Ratata/Raticate, whilst it makes sense the 4x Fighting weakness is a bit shit and I imagine it won't be hugely exciting to actually use or in terms of movepool/potential.

In the future a good idea for a "reboot" of sorts would be if they did an entire Pokedex (of a certain region, probably bloody Kanto again lmao) in different types. There's a fan game called Pokemon Insurgence that has loads called Delta species and there's some really cool ones, like a Fire/Water Lilligant, Dragon/Fairy Gorebyss, Flying/Fairy Raichu, Grass/Fire Greninja, it's really cool and invigorates some forgotten or kinda bland Pokemon. Actual Gamefreak are never that creative, but the fact they totally turned Vulpix and Ninetails for example upside down as ice types was so cool.

That's all of the, Marill was deffo meant to be one even though it's not electric (ik Mimikyu isn;t either but all the pikaclones otherwise are)! Idm most of them but this new one isn't even remotely trying laugh.gif
