Pokemans!

There was no reason at all to suspect a Switch game. The current gen is less then a year old, and the last remake is less then three.

 

I'm not the only one that thinks the new versions of the legendaries looks hideous right?

I wouldn't have thought there would be a Switch game in the direct, so Pokken Deluxe being announced was a great surprise to hear about.

 

Silver and Gold coming to the 3DS eshop was a nice surprise too.

Yeah, I'm stoked about Silver and Gold, less so excited for Pokken Deluxe for reasons stated earlier. I'm especially glad to hear trading will remain in the game too. It would be awesome if Nintendo reintroduced some of the events that allowed you to get the event Pokémon for the eShop games. That's something I'd like to see.
You mean the port comment right?

 

Well, look at it this way: if you didn't buy the original Wii U game, the new version gives you the full experience plus the extra characters and any other extras. And it could reach a wider audience thanks to the success of the Switch.

 

I can understand why people wouldn't be as excited though. I'm just looking forward to the portability of the game, the new fighters previously exclusive to arcades, and any extras since I enjoyed the original release.

So soon after it came out on the Wii U, it just undermines the system. 3rd party developers worked so hard to take away the exclusives they made for it, now Nintendo is doing it to themselves. They're essentially cannibalizing the Wii U by taking all the games that made it worthwhile and putting them on the Switch, acting as if the Wii U never happened.

 

 

You are free to your opinion. But at this point I just dont care about the WiiU anymore. It wasnt really that great of a system to begin with and while I wished it was better, at this point I cant bring myself to care anymore.

 

Its not like its monetary successful after all. I have hopes for the Switch at least. Probably will be disappointed but who knows? I've been wrong before.

 

I still need to see the Direct. I've heard good things about Pokken Tournament before.

A bit underwhelming for me. I was hoping for Gen 4 remakes.

Complete opposite. I treat Pokemon like porn. Maybe you're really hoping for one thing, but whatever. Pokemon is Pokemon. I have zero attachment to any generation, so one new game is as good as the next. So, great news!

If you don't have an attachment to at least one generation, you aren't the biggest Pokémon fan by any means.

Disclaimer - despite never claiming to be, I'd like to claim not to be the biggest Pokemon fan by any means.

He's too busy writing the news articles for the official Pokémon website.

Well, he's supposed to be. Instead, he just spends his time playing Pokémon TCG Online.

Meh, online. I'd rather replay the GBC game. I really enjoyed that.

That reminds me that I still have a fan translation of the second game to complete.

The Ultra SuMo have my interest. They call it an alternative story which means it can be taken in one of at least three ways: these games will act as the Crystal/Emerald/Platinum of the series, a sequel like B2W2, or they will do something radical and this is an alternative time line in which something between the events of Gen 6 and Gen 7 did/n't happen, causes a the timeline to alter and a new story to emerge (thanks Barry)

 

The new Solgaleo and Lunala have some interesting things about them. They appear to be in radiant form and wearing Necrozma as armor. General. theory is that a new and stronger Ultra Beast will be rampant in the region and the box legendary and Necro must FUSION HAAAA to defeat it.

 

What I want to know is what the new Pokemon and stuff will be. The leaks mentioned things that were said to be in Gen 7 that have yet to appear (I want my Dolphin) and given the incredible accuracy of said leaks I think there could be some relation. Also worth noting that there is a variation of Magearna that we've not got yet so maybe that will see an appearance here.

I was too, but I'm still looking forward to these (though not as much as I would be for Sinnoh remakes)

 

Besides, on the shelves behind Ishihara, Sinnoh was the only region to not have a single game up there. Probably because there's a new one coming soon enough? I expect it either after these next games, or in Gen 8.

 

 

I'm fine with it either way. (Both possibilities have their up sides)

 

On that note, I know I'll be picking Rowlet in this one since I've already picked Popplio on my current game.

 

Yeah, I agree. That's a good way of looking at it.

 

I'll probably choose Rowlet again, haha :P

 

 

I could have chose Popplio again, but since I was undecided the first time through and decided by coin flip, I can now take the other option. There's also the fact that I'll be using a different team anyway and I do have a different fairy type in mind.

 

 

There was no reason at all to suspect a Switch game. The current gen is less then a year old, and the last remake is less then three.

 

 

The rumors didn't help, that's for sure. There were some who even thought the next games were going to be Switch exclusive(while claiming that it would help boost Switch sales). I get that some people would have like to have a mainline Pokemon game on it, but as you stated, it's too soon(the fact that the 3DS has a larger userbase being another reason).

I understand that some people are not excited for Pokkén. Just a bit annoyed of people calling it out as if Nintendo betrayed them. Despite that the talk for the Switch game was nothing but speculation and building up hype over false speculations. Pokkén was a really fun game, and spent many hours on it. I hope this version will bring more life into the game, and hope to see it played at more local tournaments. Not to mention the USB controller designed for the game has been confirmed to work with the Switch, that is a big plus in my book.

Speaking of which:

E3 did have a reveal that they are working on a mainline Pokemon game for the Switch. I do remember hearing about them hiring people who have experience in systems with more powerful graphic capabilities not too long ago.

 

But still, anyone who was expecting a mainline Pokemon game release for the Switch this year had raised their hopes far too high considering all the odds that were against it.

So, we're getting a core Pokemon RPG for the Switch. I can't wait for more details but in the meantime I'll be waiting for Ultra SuMo

When Ishihara said "core Pokémon RPG", I actually misheard it at first as "horror Pokémon RPG", and was pretty confused for a while. :P

 

Excited to hear more! I guess the games that release on Switch will probably be the first games of Gen 8?

"horror Pokémon RPG",

It's the true story of MissingNo. and the Lavander Town theme all rolled into one package!

Anyone else on YouTube seeing an ad for a game called Mystery Pets? It is literally Pokémon stolen and being sold for mobile devices. One ad featured "Meag Lucario" and the game itself looked like basically just Pokémon X/Y, except played on a phone.
