  1. I didn't notice this myself but it's a nice touch.
  2. It's that time again! This one might be big if they're announcing it two days in advance.
  3. That's a lot of variety. My interest is particularly peaked by the Dr Strange horror movie (which should hopefully stand out more than the origin story did) and Mahershala Ali as Blade. We didn't get nearly enough of Ali in Luke Cage.
  4. It looks like Yamper might evolve from a Corgi to a Greyhound (appropriate, with it being the fastest dog in the world), considering the electric dog logo behind Rose: It would make sense, since both breeds have a strong association with the UK.
  5. All right, Jango, stop. While @KHCast was getting a bit heated (and I encourage him to dial it down a bit), that doesn't mean you can attempt to gaslight him over it. If people are unhappy with whatever bullshit is going on with this game, then you're just going to have to accept it. As far as I can see, there's no real personal attack here. You can always step away from the argument if you feel uncomfortable.
  6. Forget those Gigantomax imposters! How about some REAL Kaiju?
  7. If anyone's interested in the leak being discussed and doesn't want to go hunting for it:
  8. Someone on Restera noticed that another new Pokémon crept its way into the trailer: Some kind of elephant teapot I guess?
  9. They also revealed the following version exclusives: Speaking of exclusives, here's where the gym is: And here's some more art: EDIT: Trainers in their competitive kits:
  10. Art of Yamper and new Pokémon: Gym leaders:
  11. There's also trade evolutions, which will now be locked behind a paywall if nothing's changed...
  12. I don't think that was ever up for debate regarding Let's Go though? Everything about it suggested a lower budget to begin with. As for Sword and Shield, it's possible that the new camping gimmick (replacing Amie or whatever) includes new animations, which might go some way to explain their claim that the Pokémon require extra work to put in the game. I can't imagine it satisfying people either way, but I feel there must be some truth to their official line on this. Because they can't seriously believe the usage of the same models would ever go unnoticed.
  13. This does make me wonder how Uub will be handled going forward. He's surely too young and inexperienced to be of any help now, but maybe in the future the show could finally move past the end of Z and focus on him? I don't have much hope it will happen, but it would be great to focus heavily on someone other than Goku and Vegeta. Part of me wonders if Buushin will just find the boy and borrow the power back, leaving us with little more than fan service. Then again, as Vegeta noted, brute force is bound to be important in the final fight, so maybe Uub isn't even seen this arc and the godly technique is a thing of the past.
  14. So, I thought I'd finally upload a video about how I was thinking the starters might evolve (at least prior to the leak, since much of that contradicts this). It only took me two or three months to get around to editing it together. =P Time stamps:
  15. And - - it has wings on the back of its head! lol I was hoping we'd get some kind of goblin for Galar, and there it is! I really hope it evolves.
  16. They'll probably be wanting to show off the four player Dynamax battles, at least.
  17. Another new Pokémon has been spotted in the trailer:
  18. I wondered why Leon wears such an odd combination of clothing, but thank you Twitter:
  19. Someone just noticed on ResetEra that the wolves' bizarre names, Zacian and Zamazenta, probably come from "cyan" and "magenta". And that would mean
  20. I would guess that Wooloo is based on the Valais Blacknose sheep:
  21. Ravens are literally just big crows anyway. But I agree. As cool as those two are, Game Freak has stepped up their crow game. Yeah, I don't know quite what to think of this. It's weird that they mention only one wolf legendary when the direct was very clear about there being two separate Pokémon.
  22. OK, so Wooloo and Corviknight look very promising. I'm assuming the latter isn't the regional bird, as it doesn't look like it will evolve and it would seem odd not to start with the first stage. Gossifleur and its evolution do their job as the usual early game plant (which I'm rarely interested in), but Drednaw looks a bit off to me. The wolves seem fine I guess, but I won't be making a decision on Sword or Shield based on them anyway.
  23. Since we're less than a day away now before we likely see some early game Pokémon, I just want to say that I'd love for the regional bird to be Water/Flying and based on a heron or northern gannet. The gannet (above) is our fastest bird and utilises some pretty distinct diving poses. "Gannet" is also a synonym for glutton here, so that could influence its potential name and lore.
  24. I guess I'd forgotten all about it. It seemed odd to me since she flies a bit in one of the Generations missions (although that wasn't very high, I suppose).
