RE: Pokemon Direct Incoming
Haven’t watched the direct yet, but I like those names. Seems like an extension of how they’ve been playing with fantasy rpg roles with the starters in recent generations.
If we end up with a special edition, bet on arrow or magic something something.

Scorbunny is currently best starter, but gotta wait to see the finals.

Random encounters good, ok.

Probably the same reason why we don't have the roaming pokemon encounters. TT_TT

From what I saw it looks like they're keeping random encounters, which I applaud. One of my favorite aspects about pokemon is that the encounters are random; you never know what you're going to go up against and if your team is weak you can't just cheese your way to the nearest pokemon center without buying items (like repels) to help you. From a lore perspective, how is tall grass supposed to be dangerous without your own pokemon if you can see wild pokemon from a mile away?

Ehh, I don't really agree with this since we can run away. It just makes the game feel more like a grind, and personally I'm more on edge with the surprise encounters. I enjoyed Let's Go more just because I know what's coming. Heck! I even Shiny hunted! Something I never did in past games.

That and with the Pokemon roaming the real world, it helps with the game play's immersion.

Ehh, agree to disagree I guess. It's true that you can try to run away from encounters; but then it comes down to opposing speed stats. In the event that your faster Pokemon have fainted it becomes much harder to run away from encounters. :P

My favorite starter right now is probably Grookey (the I AM GROOKEY meme potential is definitely there lol), but I definitely agree that we need to see their final forms before picking a starter.

I myself disliked the removal of random encounters in lets go. I enjoyed having a random encounter more than seeing the pokemon. As for taking out pokemon following, that was a mistake. Having a pokemon follow you is my favorite part of heart gold and lets go.

The look of the game and the wolf in the titles kinda make me think it will involve a werewolf.

It’s a pommel or crest, so either the legendaries will be wolf themed, or it’s more likely related the lore of the region itself. Would be cool to see and interact an actual government of a region or a high family.

A bit strange that it’s a wolf on both versions tho.

If the snorlax mount was removed as well, we riot.

We will dethrone the pokemon monarchy and put an end to the monstrosity.

RE: Pokemon Direct Incoming
I like it to be as “real” as possible. Just like the anime, does Ash get random encounters where they just appear out of no where? Nope!

He often can spot them first and try to ambush the wild Pokémon!

I guess, I normally don't think of the anime and games fitting together though. Maybe they will make a Lets go for Johto.

RE: Pokemon Direct Incoming
I'm feeling REALLY good about these new ones. I remember hearing they hired like 150+ new staff at GF for these titles and it really shows. My wishlist is as follows:

1. At least 100 new non legendary Pokemon
2. They they don't reveal like 98% of them before launch again, the best experience of Pokemon as a kid was encountering all the new strange ones I'd never seen before
3. Battle Frontier type area

I mean I want the game to be good besides, but other stuff like better online and options for playing with other users seems given on the switch.

RE: Pokemon Direct Incoming
Actually, given that the region is modeled after the UK, a monarchy being included in some form or another seems really likely.

I wonder if we'll get alternative forms like the Alolan forms.

RE: Pokemon Direct Incoming
I hope they do. It’s be odd to dead end that idea and just have the one region with alt forms.

Since the region is based on the UK, Queen Elizabeth has to be the champion. If not, there at least has to be a king or queen who has significance in the story.

Drampa mega evolution when?

That'd work if they age Cynthia by a few decades Slow

RE: Pokemon Direct / Feb 27!
I love the map, especially the city area with the tower. The plot could have the evil team steal something from the tower that belongs to the royal family so they can summon the legendary.
