    I'd end it with Eggman's death.
    Then Sonic wakes up and realizes everything post-reboot was a bad dream.

    No, people are not entitled for wanting to bring their favorite/sentimental Pokemon into newer games like they always have, especially since GameFreak has gone on to emphasize that they know how their fans hold their Pokemon close to their hearts due to unique experiences they've had with them.
    This didn't just happen to them; they knew that this would not be popular with long time fans who have been transferring Pokemon since gen 4. They decided not to put in the effort. They're deciding to rush this game to get it out rather than honor the time, work and attachment that they've encouraged their fans to put into their Pokemon. They did this to themselves.
    Because Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, on the 3DS, had a total of 807 Pokemon, which does not account for gender differences, mega evolutions and other sort of variants and forms. That without a doubt places us close to 900 if not over it, and each different model has a variety of animations (eating, sleeping, happy, angry, special attack, physical attack, attacked, fainting, running, walking, signature; some had more or fewer than others).
    The 3ds had all of that. The Switch is obviously much more powerful. It can run Skyrim and Witcher 3. There is no doubt that it can hold all of USUM's assets and then the new Galar content. This isn't GF pushing the system to its absolute limit, this is their programming/optimization skills cracking under pressure to meet a deadline.
    For such a controversial statement, they've done nothing to soften it. These are the same people who knew Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee would be polarizing, which is why they mentioned that they were working on the then unnamed SWSH after announcing LGPE. If this was the case, they would have said that.
    And that doesn't look like it will happen, and we also have precedent that it may not; new ORAS mega evolutions didn't get patched into XY, the new Pokemon and forms in USUM weren't patched into SUMO. This is apparently going to be the norm now as well.
    Because of that, people are rightfully angry that what was once a guarantee is not anymore. Those "self-entitled goofs" have Pokemon that are over a decade old, traded from special people in their lives, or are simply attached to them for literally an other reason, and if said Pokemon aren't popular enough, are unpopular, or GF plain old doesn't think they fit for some reason (reminder; Solrock and Lunatone weren't in Sun and Moon, you had to transfer them, so it can "fit" but not get in), they may see years of storage in Pokemon Home. That prospect is ridiculous, so it's no wonder people are mad.

    I was going to say. XD
    Both fandoms really seem to hate the thing they claim to love.

    Johnny Boy reacted to Legendary Emerald in Star Wars fans have it as bad as Sonic fans   
    The Star Wars fandom seems to be eating itself alive. The amount of vitriol the new film trilogy gets is so disgusting. There are legitimate complaints to be had with the films, and I'd never hold it against someone for simply not liking the movies, but most of what I see online is bad-faith arguments propagated by the same mentality that brought us Gamer Gate. A lot of these people don't even realize what they are parroting, which is another big problem with nerd culture in the modern day.
    As this forum is about a primarily Japanese property, we will probably never have to worry about termites coming out of the woodwork to say the developers have been infected by "SJWS" who are pushing a no-Amy-panty-shot-agenda. Sonic fans have it relatively easy compared to most American franchises in that regard.

    Obviously I can't stop you and it's your choice in the end, but to quote The Critic: "If the movie stinks, just don't go."

    Y'know, if they even HAVE Dream Events this time around.

    I also just realized something.

    We're probably going to see characters like Wario, Waluigi, and Dr. Eggman in bathing suits.

    And it will be the sexiest thing known to mankind.

    Those aren't his Riders shoes but close enough.
    But Eggman though.

    That's what I like to see. This right here needs to happen more.

    NOBODY FUCKING CARES what shareholders and corporate drones think will make money, we care about what stays true to the series we like AND ISN'T SHIT.
    THIS IS FUCKING SHIT.

    Scorbunny's definitely gonna be my starter this time around. I'm really liking the region and the overall theming here.
    Now, the third version better be this or we riot.

    Ooh time to let a little hype well up inside! Although at a mere 7 minutes, I wonder if we'll see all that much. It's more than enough time to showcase titles, box legendaries and starters, but who knows how much guff will be interspersed between the good stuff.
    Also, since this is a Sonic forum, an amusing fake cropped up today:

    In retrospect, I actually think that Mega Evolution seems tailor-made for remakes, as a way of renewing that region's Pokemon and legends in a way which adds to without replacing the originals; consider also, for instance, the way in which Platinum and B2W2 gave their title legendaries powerful new forms...  In this light, the integration of Mega Evolution into ORAS honestly seems more natural than it does for XY.  (Though XY in general really needed a Z version, far more than Sun/Moon needed the Ultra versions, but that's just the way the cookie crumbles, I suppose.)

    Hey, just a thought—what would you guys think if Princess and the Frog was in KH3, but it followed an original plot involving Dream Eaters?

    You know I noticed something about selfie mode. When you use the camera in Arendelle, Corona, or the Caribbean the characters there will appropriately ask what your phone is since their movies take place in eras before photography. However if you aim the camera at Hercules or Eugene, they’ll actually strike a pose and smile, implying that they know that what you using is meant for taking pictures.

    - This the best solution , Shade could be reintroduced , but with adjustments . She could share guarding duty with Knuckles . Also  I think Knuckles and Shade should be the only echidnas around , I don't want archie situation to repeated .

    So, over the last month or so I ended up learning the entire story to Kingdom Hearts through various means, and there are a few things that stick out to me:
    Mickey Donald and Goofy in Kingdom Hearts are so weird to me. I think it's a holdover of when they intended for Mickey to be the main character (Probably the three of them going around in some  Disney crossover RPG), but all three are really weird for basically being the only three Disney characters who aren't in character.  Mickey being this extremely well informed authority figure is so weird when most of his cartoons are about him getting himself in over his head and cartoon logic-ing his way out.  Donald and Goofy are almost even weirder for being these ardent members of Mickey's royal court when they were really just friends of his when they appeared in the same cartoon at all.
    The villains almost universally have the ability to come and go from Sora's immediate area basically no matter what.  It really seems to undercut the significance of ongoing events when the villains can come and go with zero effort or risk to themselves, or weirdly, seem to chose not to.  The former is exemplified in BBS when Aqua beats up Vanitas and then he laughs, hops up, and runs away.  If he was beaten up, why is he able to just run away like that? If he was holding back and wasn't actually beaten up, why did he run away at all?  Then an example of the latter, where the Organization XIII members just sticking around to die in CoM or Big Boss not retreating when the fight isn't going his way in 2.  This ends up with Sora seemingly having no agency until the final battle.
