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.

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.

That Steelix appearing out of nowhere has me howling. It's just not acceptable for a game in 2019.

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

Please prove me wrong GF.

The trailer is trash.

They got rid of mega evolutions only to reintroduce it with a different name? Gimmicky trash.
That whipped cream Pokémon? Gaybait trash.
That whipped cream Pokémon ''Gigantamaxing'' into a giant cake? Utter trash.

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.

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.

- 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?

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
