  • UnburdenedLegume

    So where’s the trailer?

  • David Nixon

    Cool For e Nintendo Switch 😀

  • EarthenWarrior

    The Internet is asploding

  • Fairy

    Saw new content for Splatoon and Mario Kart! 😮

  • PenguinBand1t

    Interesting concept. Want to know what price point it would be

    • Ultron

      I’m gonna guess $400…

      • ThatGuyWithThePokemon

        I’m gonna go with $500-550

        • Ultron

          I wouldn’t be surprised, but they’re always talking about making them affordable for families and stuff.

          • ThatGuyWithThePokemon

            True enough, but with the inflation since the Wii U was released and the time and funding that went into this, it’s probably going to be more expensive than usual… I’ll compromise and say $450 xD

          • Ultron

            I guess they also didn’t show any families in the preview xD

          • ThatGuyWithThePokemon

            F*** families, get money =P

  • WoahMama EastGovnah

    This honestly looks amazing.

  • Strawberry_Pocky_Moose

    Huh, looks pretty good. I wonder if it’ll get a Pokemon title 🙂

    • TheGreatGuardian

      It will. It’s been confirmed by Tsunekazu Ishihara, the CEO of TPC, that there will be Pokemon games for the switch. And apparently within six months it will get a game made BY GAME FREAK (I.e. Main series Pokemon). I can’t confirm the latter though.

  • WoahMama EastGovnah

    Im really happy they have a regular controller along with the handheld part

  • ThatGuyWithThePokemon

    I was never excited for this, never really cared, thought people were greatly exaggerating what this new console represented… But after this, I am happy to say I was wrong. This isn’t just setting a new standard for gaming, but for tech in general!

  • ShinyXatu

    So we have a new Mario and Mario Kart, Splatoon 2, Breath of the Wild (obviously), Skyrim, and NBA. I’m ready to make the Switch.

    • Ultron

      I thought it was more of the suggestion that it can play previous titles.

    • David Nixon

      *Rimshot*

    • WoahMama EastGovnah

      well we dont know if Mario kart and Splatoon aren’t ports? because Mario kart Switch looks like 8 with the same hud, but with new things like King Boo

      • ShinyXatu

        Because they have features that weren’t in MK8 or Splatoon.

        • Ultron

          Could be updates or dlc

        • WoahMama EastGovnah

          they could still be ports just with more stuff added to them to make them different from the wii u version. and what does splatoon have different i didnt notice

          • Fairy

            Hairstyles for one

          • ShinyXatu

            New hairstyles, camera angles and graphics. I want to wait for the GameXplain analysis because they’ll go deeper.

          • WoahMama EastGovnah

            hm who knows tho, either way im gonna get both games lol

      • Fairy

        If they’re ports they’re still improved ports

        • WoahMama EastGovnah

          yea ik. im happy either way because they have new things added to it

    • Claus H. Luíz

      “I’m ready to make the Switch.”

      You took that goddamn opportunity with a smirk on yo’ mothafuckin’ face, didn’t you?
      Honestly, this should be their slogan or something. I’m ready to make the Switch. Are you?

    • Cwistian

      I’m so excited for this console!

    • Phatmon

      What about your ShinyXatu? Is he ready for the switch?

  • UnburdenedLegume

    OMG this thing looks incredible!!

  • TCRowlet

    Everyone’s excited for Nintendo Switch and I’m just sitting here thinking f**k…Pokémon on 1 screen again…

    Truthfully tho I am excited and can’t wait to buy it. It really is just take your console out with you.

  • OOHHHHHHH
    OIOOHHHHH
    IM SOLD LET ME GIVE YOU NY MONEY

    AAAHHHH

    THIS IS THE BEES KNEES WOOOOAAH

  • SKYRIM IS ON A NINTENDO SYSTEM OMG WOAAAHHH

    • ThatGuyWithThePokemon

      Skyrim already steals people’s lives, but taking it on the go? Man, now they just need to put it on VR to complete Bethesda’s evil scheme

  • Ben

    I’m just glad the new Mario game is fully 3D and not another sidescrolling platformer. This system has potential!

    • Ultron

      Could it be the next 3D world??

  • UnburdenedLegume

    I am so buying this console. Unreal tech

  • Oz37

    The question is, when can I preorder and start making payments? That way I won’t have to shell out $400 or whatever all at once. (Note how the question is NOT if I’ll be getting this. Of course I’ll be getting this!)

  • Cyanic

    People shit on the N Switch because the tablet design failed in the WiiU, but lets be real. Which is superior? I feel like Nintendo released the WiiU as a beta to fix everything wrong with it. Just like X an Y. Personally, I’m super excited for that new Mario. Imagine a Pokemon or Pikmin game on that OWO.

    • WoahMama EastGovnah

      OWO whats this

    • Fairy

      The problem is the GamePad feels like an afterthought and served so much less than it could’ve

      The two screens here are actually being implemented and used it seems

      • Cyanic

        True. Coming from the owner of a WiiU, I was impressed by the idea, but felt it could go further. Is this the future of handheld gaming? Because with this, the console market just got rocked. Imagine GTA IV on this… The possibilities are endless ^^

        • Fairy

          Pokemon on this will be amazing

    • Ben

      People shit on the N Switch? Have you looked at the comment section of their Facebook posts?? People are really pumped for it! And believe me – their comment sections are usually very negative.

  • TheSunnyMonster6893

    I really hope this is as great as they say it is. The over all design seems pretty good, but as far as what’s under the hood is concerned I hope its decently powerful……We can’t have another Wii U……I know it won’t be as strong as the PS4 and Xbone, but close will do it for me lol

  • WoahMama EastGovnah

    if this system can handle 2k17 on a handheld screen. honestly i can see amazing graphics coming from this system alone

  • PenguinBand1t

    Console gaming in the toilet? Yeah

    • EarthenWarrior

      I already do that

      • PenguinBand1t

        Unfortunately, I’m not lucky enough to be allowed to put a TV in the toilet

        • EarthenWarrior

          I used a DVD player with the RWY connectors for the Gamecube. All it took was a stool, and a powerstrip

  • EarthenWarrior

    Alright I got to start working
    This time I’m going to be a savvy gamer and find out as soon as possible to purchase and reserve one because it looks freaking amazing

  • ShinyXatu

    Seems as though we might not get a handheld from Nintendo for a long time. This is the best of both worlds. It’s up for debate whether Pokémon would come to the Switch.

    • Cyanic

      A 3D Pokemon game? I am going to die peacefully XP

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Pretty sure Nintendo already came out and said they’re developing Pokemon games for the Switch

      • ShinyXatu

        I mean a mainline game.

        • UnburdenedLegume

          Yeah why wouldn’t they? I honestly see Sun and Moon being the last handheld games tbh. The whole game seems to be a celebration of 20 years of Pokemon. Perhaps the gen 4 remakes might be on 3DS, but I see gen 8 and onward on Switch.

        • TheGreatGuardian

          Tsunekazu Ishihara has said they’re making a game for the Switch, and there was a rumour that Game Freak was making a game to be released within six months of the Switch being released

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Gen 4 remakes in October/November 2017? I could see that happening tbf

          • TheGreatGuardian

            Closer. Six months from March is September… I can’t confirm the part about that though, but there are definitely Pokemon games coming for it.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Even better, But my reply contradicts my below comment. I could see the gen 4 remakes being on 3DS and the next mainline (presumably gen 8) game on Switch.

  • EarthenWarrior

    So if there are no delays we might see it hit March 27
    That’s 23 weeks

    • Claus H. Luíz

      About 5 months~! Way sooner than I expected.

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Cant wait till I can preorder this baby. Imagine not having it in your possession

  • TCRowlet

    Seeing Mario Kart 8 and Splatoon, I wonder if Sun and Moon would get Switch ports. I’d prefer not, because then features will possibly be witheld from the 3DS versions.

    • PenguinBand1t

      I’m not sure how they would incorporate the 3ds’ two screens for a port

      • TCRowlet

        The screen is big enough it can probably be split. We see this in Mario Kart multiplayer.

    • Ithsme

      I hope they have more to show off than just ports though.

      • TCRowlet

        Yeah!

    • Fairy

      Plot twist

      That’s why the Dex is so underwhelming

      • TCRowlet

        HA! XD

  • AlolanSandschrew

    Looks really cool!!

  • Kali Black-Mamba Russaw

    My wish would be that you could play 3DS games on it… I’d pre order it today.. Pokemon Sun and Moon on he big screen? yes, please.

    • Claus H. Luíz

      Wishful thinking, but the problem with that is the lack of the necessary bottom screen for the functionality of pretty much every 3DS game.

      • Kali Black-Mamba Russaw

        thats true maybe they can do something though? or make an attachment?

  • TheSunnyMonster6893

    Some questions I have are how do they keep the cost down of games when using discs would probably be a better way for space than carts are and how they plan to do the switching from tv to handheld. Will the cartridge always go into the pad or will there be a need to stop the games and put it in the pad? they make it seem like you won’t need to stop the game, but who knows.

  • Green

    I’ll wait to see new games that’ll come out on this. I don’t want to get it if there are no new interesting games (which is a low possibility)

  • EarthenWarrior

    Also Game cards confirmed
    My only problem is the durability because that screen looks very frail and bendable with my big fat strong bear paws
    Also if people do take it on the go they MUST invent a savvy carrying case

    • ThatGuyWithThePokemon

      Yeah, all those are good reasons why people probably shouldn’t get it immediately. Need to work out the kinks.

  • Ben

    Crazy thought: Gen VII could be the first Pokémon Generation to have its (main series) games split between consoles.

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      I cold see that. Maybe they port Sun and Moon over even.

    • Green

      But if Sun and Moon can go in the NX, then so will X/Y and ORAS

      • Fairy

        Not necessarily

        Why would they? There’s no reason to port those

        • Green

          But they ARE 3DS games.

          • Fairy

            If they’re just backwards compatible then I don’t see why that’s interesting at all

            Diamond and Pearl can go in a 3DS

          • Green

            But SuMo has already been confirmed for the 3DS. If NX games and 3DS games are allowed, then ORAS/XY will be too.

          • Fairy

            What do you mean?

            If NX is backwards compatible it can play XYORAS? Because if it’s what you’re talking about it’s not revolutionary or anything

          • Green

            Yeah. Is there a way they can make only new 3DS games work on it?

          • Fairy

            Why though?

  • WoahMama EastGovnah

    Pokemon can work with the switch just a new interface would be used, the hud for the battle could look really cool

  • EarthenWarrior

    Oi vey….I just thought of something
    If it doesn’t come out…..
    The Nintendo BAIT AND SWITCH

  • SomeGuy

    YAAAAAAAAAASSSSSSSSSSSS

  • Leo

    I need it

  • Fairy

    So this is making my wait for my GP actually bearable

    Thank you base Nintendo

  • SomeGuy

    This is EXACTLY what I wanted it to be!!

  • Ben

    Just the thought of a main series Pokémon game on the big screen fills me with glee 🙂 Or even a Mystery Dungeon title would be pretty cool.

  • WoahMama EastGovnah
    • Fairy

      I see SEGA
      Bayo3 Bayo3 Bayo3

    • UNITY YES!!!!!!!!

    • Ben

      Seriously. The Switch could be a huge revitalization for Nintendo.

    • Ben Rhodes

      Codemasters, Level 5, SEGA.
      That means Racing Games, RPG’s and going fast

      • WoahMama EastGovnah

        i was hoping to see blizzard! so i can get my hands on handheld overwatch

        • Sasha Nekosune

          You have to consider what it says at the top… a SAMPLING of Nintendo Switch partners.

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Ubisoft, Bethesda, Bandai, Square Enix, EA

      So the Switch will have the next Assassin’s Creed, next Elder Scrolls, Xenoverse 2, Kingdom Hearts 3 and Mass Effect Andromeda? Yep, definitely buying it

      • Trusk

        To hell with Bandai and Konami. My favorite companies are Namco, Hudson, and Nintendo. Hudson should be back in business by now. I want my new Bomberman game!!!

        • Akiran Drake (Nightshade)

          I’d love to have Xenoverse 2 where ever I was.

    • Claus H. Luíz

      Arc System Works, Bandai Namco, and Square Enix! JRPGs, here I come!

    • EA..? Lies!!! EA would never support Nintendo ever!

    • Review Reviewer

      EA’s game: Plants vs. Zombies, Pay to Win edition.

  • SomeGuy

    PLEASE GIMME FFXV (are people still excited for that game?)

    • WoahMama EastGovnah

      Kingdom hearts 3 😮

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Imagine killing Heartless whilst dropping a turd. Double satisfying

  • WoahMama EastGovnah

    i can honestly see a direct in the near future for the NX. can’t see nintendo going dark anymore

  • SomeGuy

    Shit son. I wonder what GameFreak will do. I could see any game even Sinnoh remakes being on Switch but keeping SuMo’s style until Gen 8

  • Andre

    MK9????

    • K I N G B O O

      • Green

        Was King Boo in MK8?

        • Fairy

          No

          • Green

            inb4 it’s just a DLC

        • Claus H. Luíz

          Not at all.

      • Andre

        dying

    • Fairy

      I think it’s more of a MK 8.5, it looks remarkabley similar but with new stuff

      • Andre

        too many new stuff to be a dlc i think

        • Fairy

          Not a DLC, just a port which is hella enhanced

  • marketing slogan: “its time to make the Switch”

  • AHHH I CANT TAKE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is more thank I can take. This is better than what I imagined. Like, OMG. And all the 3rd part support. This is literally everything the Wii U failed at and SWITCHed it around and is now its strong points. Like, just imagine all of the possibilities with this. AND AGAIN UNITY IS SUPPORTING IT!!!!! If they can make the process of putting games on the eShop as easy as Steam this is going to be absolutely perfect. Like as a hobbyist developer, I could get a freaking game on a Nintendo system. That idea is too much

  • Ben Rhodes

    Isn’t it odd, that in the MK8 section, they showed them playing as a Boo/King Boo, despite neither been in the Roster. New DLC? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/3f089ce66edbcaa0c054858c58ad176e0f80afb04ee76debd72b2403b2a5f5c2.png

    • TCRowlet

      Not only that, but dual items.

      • Ben Rhodes

        At first I thought they were just showing what it could do, but perhaps it’s getting an NX rerelease with extra content

        • Ben

          Mario Kart 8 1/2…?

        • TCRowlet

          Which I wouldn’t mind at all, Mario Kart 8 is the best in the franchise. Just adding onto that game is fine by me! 😀 It was always odd that they didn’t do more DLC for 8 considering how popular it was.

          • WoahMama EastGovnah

            this is probably why they didnt do more DLC

    • Andre

      too many new stuff to be a dlc i think.

      • Ben Rhodes

        Rerelease with extra content then

    • Ben Rhodes
      • WoahMama EastGovnah

        hes like “IM BACKKKKKKKKK”

      • Claus H. Luíz

        Plus, why are there TWO items?? That’s new.

      • towelgirl21

        Yoshi’s chalk outline? R.I.P Sweet Prince

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Unrelated question: My Pokemon Bank subscription expires in 19 days. How do I renew it exactly? I really cant afford to lose my shiny Dialga, amongst other things lol.

    • Once it expires just buy a pass thing. There is a grace period before your pokemon are removed

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Where do I buy a pass? E-Shop?

        • Ultron

          Pretty sure you can renew it directly from the pokebank and just do the exact amount

      • Fairy

        Do you know how long that period is? I’ve never missed getting my subscription back but I’m a bit paranoid ^^;

        • i have no idea D:

        • zess

          I normally take them all out the day before I renew just to be on the safe side.

        • UnburdenedLegume

          Apparently you are notified 14 days before the subscription ends

  • zess

    Well I absolutely love this! Come March I’ll have a new console/handheld (consheld?) Too add to my collection!

  • WoahMama EastGovnah

    seeing MK8.5 or MK9 with King boo gives me hope my main dry bones makes a comeback

    • TCRowlet

      And Birdo!

    • Ultron

      I want queen bee and wiggler from Mario kart 7

      • WoahMama EastGovnah

        Wiggler riding on a wiggler bike eh lol

        • Ultron

          Yes plzzz

    • EarthenWarrior

      I want to see…….
      Olimar
      Captain Falcon
      Fawful
      Spike
      And………maybe Boom Boom

      • FAWFUL YES

        • EarthenWarrior

          I had this fan idea for a Pikmin Planet race course and one in the beanbean kingdom

  • Sorry for slowness updating guys. Currently on mobile internet on a train. It’s like 1997.

    • WoahMama EastGovnah

      hey atleast starting in march you can play Nintendo Switch on the train likes its 2017

    • Claus H. Luíz

      Ah~
      1997.
      The Great Wi-Fi Depression.
      Horrible, suicidal times they were.

  • libra

    I like it so far! It’s using Nvidia tech based on GeForce. I love the idea of console and handheld gaming. Nintendo has already listed a lot of support. I hope the dock boosts the power. The name, design, and slogan I totally love!

    • KGNeos

      I can’t even imagine what future Pokémon games would look like on this system.

  • KGNeos

    I NEED THIS NOW LOL! 🙂

  • Claus H. Luíz

    I REALLY hope we can also play Wii U games on the Nintendo Switch.
    Cause let me tell you, err’body gonna make that Switch quicker than Pillsbury biscuit dough popping out of its can…

    …First time I opened one had my heart s h o o k.

    • Sasha Nekosune

      If there’s a slot for CD’s on the dock for the Switch then it might but i am not sure. Nintendo has said that they don’t want the Switch to replace the Wii U or their Mobile Consoles. But it does look like the switch could play 3/DS games.

      • PercyEspeon

        Yeah, especially in the moment where the guy inserts something into the handheld part. It looked to be a 3DS sized cartridge. But it didn’t look white so *Shrugs*

  • WoahMama EastGovnah

    I really hope the VC is expanded to the gamecube. it needs some love too 🙁

  • Me

  • PercyEspeon

    <3 <3
    I wonder if it will only play Switch games, or be able to play both Wii U and 3DS titles.
    If not, that's totally fine, but I'm definitely interested in getting one, especially as it's both console and handheld, and definitely if the potential for future Pokemon titles go towards the Switch 😀

    • WoahMama EastGovnah

      we could get ports of wii u games. it looks like we are getting some

    • Claus H. Luíz

      Wii U: “Wii U? More like Me, too! …Please take me.

      Switch: “…BOW BEFORE YOUR NEW MASTER!!”

      • PercyEspeon

        Sammmee, I was never interested in the Wii U, but there are some games I am interested in, so if we get ports or whatnot, then it makes my job easier and I’ll just get Switch

  • Also me im kinda concerned that im not seeing people freak out like i am i gave myself a headache screaming jibberish just over whelmed by hype

  • WoahMama EastGovnah

    nintendo was one i away from calling it the Nintendo Swiitch 😉

  • EarthenWarrior

    Alright the Nintendo Switch Amazon page is up
    I wish they would do an announcement when pre-purchases are available
    I am determined to get a copy ASAP

  • Fairy

    Of course after I get hyped up it turns out I’ve either got an infection causing a gland to swell or a cyst 😡

    At least the Switch means I got one good thing today :p

  • TigerMasku

    Is this console portable and home at the same time?

    • WoahMama EastGovnah

      yep!

    • TigerMasku

      If the release pokemon exclusive to Switch, it will be the first time I might actually buy a non portable nintendo console.

  • nb97

    Do you guys think that this will replace the 3DS?

    • yep yep

      • WoahMama EastGovnah

        not a bad thing tho. but its scary to see combining two markets will help them

      • Trusk

        This is NOT to replace the Wii U. Did you not read what the staff at Nintendo said?

        • WoahMama EastGovnah

          yea but we all know that everyone is gonna switch focus to the switch

        • Ben Rhodes

          Yeah but, they said that about the DS to the Gameboy Advance too

        • Lol yes it will. You seriously think Nintendo is going to keep supporting it?

          • Trusk

            This is lacking local multiplayer. I want Namco to create a new Namco Museum title for the the Wii U first. Use of the amiibo to unlock hidden classics!

          • What? They are probably going to let you use Wii U pro controllers. Not to mention the mini wiimotes in the controller?

          • Trusk

            All I am say is that they are only rushing things here, and, in times like this, haste make waste.

          • Fairy

            The things been confirmed for two years now

            That’s the opposite of a rush

          • If the Wii U had to survive for two more years Nintendo would hurt so bad

          • Fairy

            It’s been been confirmed it has local wireless

            Both multiple controllers with one switch screen and multiple switch screens with one game

          • So they realized two gamepads was a good idea

          • Fairy

            I think that the multiple screens thing is only if multiple players have the game (like handhelds) but it’s still a brilliant option

          • They might have download play like on the DS

          • Fairy

            Yeah but that probably won’t be as immersive as all having the game but I do feel download play is a good chance of happening

        • Armaggedon16

          If you really think that this isn’t replacing the WiiU and believe that PR crap, then you are, quite frankly pretty stupid.
          Tell me, what new game is coming out on the WiiU?
          That’s right. Zelda Only. And it was delayed to release it alongside the NX.
          The Wiiu was a good system to have in, like 2014.
          But since then it’s been dead

          • You literally told someone to shut up when they presented a logical argument.

          • Trusk

            Only when they called me stupid. He did not have to say that. I couldn’t help it, ok.

          • Ok but like, he as a reason for that. You aren’t looking at this situation logically. You have to try to understand this and you just aren’t.

  • This is the right kind of crazy Nintendo has needed. It is like combining what they learned from the Wii and Wii U

    16? 18months? However long amount of months it took to reveal this has been worth it

    I find it rather too busy…

  • Fairy

    What ports are people wanting? I’m kinda wanting an Overwatch port because I can see my husbandos on the go otherwise I have to invest in a PS4 and I really don’t want to do two consoles in such a short span of time

    • Ben Rhodes

      The Fact that Codemasters is developing for it gives me hopes of Racing games like Grid and F1.
      Level 5 developing gives me hopes of Ni No Kuni and their Playstation RPG’s.

    • YES. GIVE ME OVERWATCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I NEED TO SEE MY WAIFUS MAI AND TRACER AND MERCY ON MY NINTENDO SYSTEM

        O hem G Trasir for Smish?

        still makes as much sense as Cloud Strife tbh :p

        • Actually yes that would be amazing

          • Fairy

            I mean Ryu, Snake and Cloud got in at points and they’ve been scantily seen on Nintendo consoles

            Definitely feels like a pipe dream but I’d actually die,

    rn im seeing alot of positive reception of the switch, but u still have those negativity people who think it will end up like the wii u

    • Fairy

      I’ve seen them, it’s called the YouTube comment section

      • WoahMama EastGovnah

        and 4chan but they always complain

        • Fairy

          4Chan probably complains about people complaining about complaining :p

    • Ben Rhodes

      At least it has a less confusing name for newcomers, no more thinking it’s an upgraded Wii

      • Fairy

        I feel like that legit cost GameFreak a few sales

        • Ben Rhodes

          Certainly did when it came to the DS/3DS/2DS/N3DS.
          Too many times I’ve heard people saying a 2DS is just a DS and that a DS can play 3DS games.

          • Fairy

            Yeah so many people can’t tell the difference

            It’s kinda sad, I’ve heard more people understand the 3DS is a separate console due to having a number but most people around here think the Wii U is just an upgrade

          • That logic makes no sense. So a less powerful system can play games that require more powerful hardware that also needs more buttons. O. That actually kind of amazes me that people thought that a DS could play 3DS games

          • Ben Rhodes

            You hear a lot, one lady bought a Mario Amiibo for skylanders, it’s a mix of idiots and misunderstandings
            “Mum can I have a New 3DS”
            So she buys him a New 3DS, but not a NEW 3DS, just a brand new original one.

          • Oh that poor kid

    • Ok ok the Wii U already had warning signs
      -No 3rd party support
      -Terrible launch line up
      -No one knew what the thing was on announcement
      -Weak advertising
      – Not powerful enough for most AAA games

      • For fun:
        -Already has great 3rd party support
        -Zelda, Mario, Pokemon, Assassin’s Creed, Just Dance 4, Skyrim etc.
        -Obvious what is just from watching the video
        -Too early to tell but based on this trailer Nintendo is probably going to do great
        -It’s a handheld running skyrim. Dis gon be pretty powerful

        • WoahMama EastGovnah

          its running skyrim remastered and 2k17 too 🙂 Ps4 and Xbox one level of graphics

          • Does Remastered have all of the DLC? Stupid question but idk

          • WoahMama EastGovnah

            yes it does

          • Woooo!
            I’m just so hyped for this. Skyrim and Breath of the Wild is going to steal away my life

        • Trusk

          You think that just because it is new means that It will have no weakness. You better think again. When the Wii U came out I decded to take my time conisdering whether or not to buy the game. As new titles came out and I learned about amiibo, I decided to give myself to the system. I was happy to have obtained the system. I am not ready to see the Wii U fall so soon. Why can’t they produce it until 2020?! Besides, I thought that Tank! Tank! Tank! was a good title by Namco Ltd. I am currenty doing some research on the pros and cons of Nintendo Switch.

          • Fairy

            Because the Wii U will of been out for over four years by the time the Switch comes out

            Thats like the average life span of a console

          • Trusk

            Dude, the Wii managed to exist for seven years. I wanted to believe that the Wii U would las as long as that. If production were to stop in March 2018, there should be at least one company to blame for its betrayal and sidetracking…Konami!

          • The Wii also had tremendous 3rd party support and was easily accessible. It wasn’t just dedicated gamers playing it anymore. Your grandma could play, your entire family could play, your friends could play. Anyone could pick it up and understand it imminently. Wii U was kind of the opposite effect

          • Trusk

            *facepalm and sweatdrop*

          • Ok here is the thing. The Wii U was practically dead after two years. By then, any 3rd parties giving it the time of day were beginning to leave. It was basically a Smash Bros and Zelda machine. The Wii U had a great line up but it wasn’t enough to grab consumers. The Switch was a must have for Nintendo to avoid a world of hurt trying to keep the Wii U going. It was dead.

          • Trusk

            No offense, but you sound a little bit like my cousin. But he criticizes almost everything.

          • I’m looking at cynically because this is a huge game changer for the industry. I mean, I wanna make games so I follow this stuff because it is important. It isn’t criticism to say the Wii U is dead. It is. It has pretty much nothing coming to it. Most of its life span was kept up by 1st party (which were pretty good for the most part) and it was going to sink. The Switch is a life saver for Nintendo.

          • Fairy

            I’d say it’s less the Wii U died and then the Switch is coming out and more they were weaning us off the Wii U for the switch to the Switch

          • Trusk

            I’d like to create video games too, but the thing is that there are still going to be flaws to this new system. And honestly, I though that when Iwata first announced it they have just started working on the system. A great system would take more that just two years to develop. If they were first announcing a new system they should at least say that it is already in the works. And besides, I am actually majoring in biology.

          • Fairy

            What has biology got to do with the NX XD

          • Ok yes it will have flaws but not like the Wii U. In retrospect, the Wii U was a disaster. I love its games but everything surrounding it was bad. Nobody knew what the thing was and there were no games on it too hook people in early.

            They didn’t spend two years making this thing. They just announced it two years ago. And I don’t see what you majoring in biology has to do with this?

          • Trusk

            Well, number one, I am sorry that I brought biology up. I am just as educated about art as you are. And number two, I never thought of the Wii U as a disaster. Whenever I read that the console had problems, I would hope for software releases that would make more utilization of the Game Pad’s functions. Light gun games wouldn’t hurt and I kept on making suggestions on Miiverse that they would make more shooters. I believed that, after Star Fox Zero came out, I had my hopes up about many companies such as Namco, Sega, Konami, and even Capcom creating games in that genre (meaning it would support the Wii Zapper). If it the Wii U were dead, then I would at least swear/curse Konami’s name, even soil it if necessary, because they wasted their time on f****** Yu-Gi-Oh cards. Konami is a traitor to all gamers! Some of its employees would be better off working at Nintendo to support the ideas suggested by fans. That would granted them a lot more room to create some fantastic ideas for games.

          • This is fun
            1. I wasn’t arguing that I know more about art and even then, what does Biology have to do with art? Plus the Wii U failing isn’t art. It isn’t subjective. It is just a fact that it died quickly.

            2.Suggestions on MiiVerse literally do nothing. I’m trying to be respectful, but do you really think that someone at Nintendo is going to see a post on miiverse saying “ey make a shooter” then just go “SHIGERU GET OVER HERE WE GOTTA MAKE THIS GAME” Like, no.

            3.Why are you bringing Konami into this. I mean #Fuckonami and all but like, they have nothing to do with Nintendo in this argument. I didn’t know about this Yu-Gi-Oh game but you know that there are different parts of Konami making different games right? It isn’t thousands of people in the same company working on only one game at a time.

            4. The problem with taking game ideas from fans is that most fans don’t know anything about game development. Ask someone on the street for a game idea and you will probably get a cliche story idea that takes place in a MMORPG. They don’t know how to properly design and prototype mechanics and they often dont have a sense of scope. Plus even if they did, by the time development would be over (2-3 years in development most likely) the Wii U would be in the same place it is now

          • Trusk

            Look I said that I brought up biology by mistake. And with a comment like that, how would I believe that you want to make video games. You just like to spit in the face of others, don’t you? Why did you say “this is fun”? I think you are just trying to do this on purpose.

          • I’m not spitting in anyone’s face. I’m stating objective facts. I’ve gotten my hands dirty and made a couple small games. I know how hard it is. Actually no I don’t it is harder than I know.

            Ok yeah maybe I shouldn’t have said “this is fun” but I just get enjoyment out of unstoppable force meets an immovable object situations like this.

            You shouldn’t assume someone who is disagreeing with you is being malicious. I love games and I want more people to play and make them, but like, you cant just take someone’s undeveloped idea and spit it out as a full game in 5 months. Well you can, but that’s why we have Steam Greenlight *buh dum tiss*

          • Trusk

            What? *raspberry and laughter* You made a couple of small games? Give me a break. Even if I never made a gmae in my entire life, I ALWAYS know how hard it is by watching others. Take this key element in mind when creating games: “creativity” What makes you think that I would expect them to create a game in 5 months? Wishing and expecting are two different things. Until I’m confident that I can make a change, I just let the world decide for itself and hold on to thoes ideas until Nintendo gets the staff to review the ideas from fans, or when Nintendo gets a Kickstarter project.

          • I don’t think you understand how this works. Making a game and watching someone making a game are two different things. And like, yeah creativity is important but so is realism. A game has to have a realistic sense of scope. My first project ever was a huge rogue like dungeon crawler that spanned hundreds of floors with tons of unique monsters and bosses. And hell no I couldn’t do that. I learned it the hard way and have sense adjusted my projects to a more realistic scope. Just look at No Man’s Sky if you want an example of an unrealistic sense of scope gone wrong. The thing is though, people don’t think critically about their ideas and make them realistic or viable for a game.

            Back in 6th grade my friend had this idea where a boy wakes up with magical powers in a kingdom. That was his whole idea. That was it. How do you make a game out of that? It would just be another forgettable, probably buggy JRPG that no one played. You cant just come up with ideas like you can with books or movies. Video Games are a whole other beast.

            And I say that the game would be released in 5 months because if it was released any later, it wouldn’t help the system. Let’s say Nintendo took a fan idea and in 2 1/2 years it would be released. Who would buy that? Probably the person who came up with the idea and game reviewers. That is because the Wii U has nothing going for it,.

            Also I’m genuinely curious how and what you will change. Like, there is logic behind this stuff. There are reasons these companies do what they do. In the departments you are complaining about, there isnt much one person can do about it

          • Trusk

            Hey! Nintendo isn’t always about realism! And besides, I understand logic pretty well. The good reason why Nintendo would not actually submit ideas, even if they wanted to, is that they simply do not have the staff members to review them. Try looking it up. Plus, it is not just me. There are plenty of enthusiatic gamers who would have such ideas. Some to bring back genres in which we missed so much of and others to point out at what is missing in the games they currently play.

          • Ok but Nintendo is a business. Ignoring the fact that 97% of fan ideas are probably pretty mundane and undeveloped, you just said that they dont have the staff to review them. And they shouldn’t. Nintendo is filled with creative people with experience in games. Trust me, they don’t have a hard time coming up with game ideas.

          • Trsuk

            Well, I do not expect them to use my ideas. I thought that I would be my way of inspiring them and telling them what games the consoles are missing.

        • Armaggedon16

          Not be pessimistic, but the wiiU had promising 3rd party support at launch as well

          I remember people going crazy over ZombiU

          • Fairy

            I think ZombiiU was like the only support

            And that ain’t no Skyrim :p

          • Ehhh maybe? But not to the point of other consoles

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Surf, Fly and Waterfall are TMs in S/M

  • TheSunnyMonster6893

    So with the Switch being both a handheld and regular tv console I wonder how long the 3DS will stick around. It’s still selling decently as it is so it’s not like the Wii U where they need to cut their losses. I imagine they’ll give it at least another half a year, maybe a full year, and then drop it.

    • Ben Rhodes

      I feel if theres another Gen 7 Pokemon game, it will be on the 3DS, like Gen 5 was DS, but then they switch.

      • TheSunnyMonster6893

        Idk….I feel like SuMo will be the last games on the 3ds. This might be the first time GF split a gen between consoles lol

        • Ben Rhodes

          Or go straight onto a new gen, they haven’t even started development on the next game, unlike when B2/W2/X/Y/S/M were developed overlapping.

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            That’s true. It’s an unpopular theory, but one could guess that maybe gen 7 is the first gen to feature only one set of games.

          • Ben Rhodes

            I’d say if they feel complete, but X/Y didn’t feel complete and they got no 3rd version, so very possible at this stage

  • Claus H. Luíz

    Unless it gets a successor, the Nintendo 3DS is definitely sticking around.
    Nintendo has a stranglehold on the handheld market and attempting to grip the mobile market.
    Meanwhile, the Nintendo Switch is about to give the console market a leglock from the shadow realm. They ain’t playing around!

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      I think you mean successor as the 3DS predecessor was the regular ds. Anyway I’d argue that the Switch IS the successor to both the regular consoles and handheld. Otherwise it’d just be a tv console and not have portable functions. The 3DS as great as it is, is getting old and they need to swap soon. the Switch is likely their answer to that

  • UnburdenedLegume

    The new Poke Ball looks like its exclusively used to catch UBs

    • Claus H. Luíz

      Yup.

  • WoahMama EastGovnah

    seeing amiibos in the trailer basically confirmed it will have amiibo support. I’m hoping that this time they have better functionality

    • SomeGuy

      No thank you. I love amiibos. They’re cool. But I shouldn’t have to buy a game and a toy in order to play the game. Supplemental features are way better.

      • The Wolf in BoTW is probably the best use of it

      • WoahMama EastGovnah

        no no im not saying that, im saying im hoping that the functions are more in-depth with games like how wolf link will join u on journey in breathe, i hate like the ones where it just gives u a random item and coins

  • Armaggedon16

    I doubted Nintendo, but I’m glad they proved me wrong. The switch looks amazing, It looks like it’ have an amazing launch line up with zelda, Mario and splatoon. All Nintendo needs to do now is advertise this thing properly and make sure the 3rd parties don’t ditch it like they Did the WiiU

  • Claus H. Luíz

    On March, Nintendo Switch release date, 2017, we will all be like this…

      Banjo Kazooie
      Shovel Knight <<<<<<<<<<
      Skull Kid (prob not)

      • UnburdenedLegume

        Banjo Kazooie isn’t Nintendo property anymore though

        • Microsoft said they are open to it though

      • Fairy

        Inkling needs to be in :p

        • Oh shoot yeah!

          • Fairy

            I was thinking maybe:

            Inkling with Splattershot (its the only weapon you use in the campaign)

            Marie with Splat Charger (She has a preference for it)

            Callie with a Roller (She also had a preference for it)

            But I feel that’d be overkrill XD

          • Maybe just have different weapons as different attacks and Callie,Marie and different Inkling looks can be costumes

          • Fairy

            Yeah

      • WoahMama EastGovnah

        um Inkling?

    • Ithsme

      Ports are great and all but ports alone won’t sell a console.

      • WoahMama EastGovnah

        Mario Kart 8 and and Splatoon are shown to have new features and people who didnt buy the wii u will buy those 2 and we have skyrim for crying out loud lol

  • http://i.imgur.com/aZo8jbm.png?1

    Some people just can’t be pleased

    • WoahMama EastGovnah

      its not even 2 hours the trailer is out and we already see stuff like this. theres been 27 maddens. 25 call of duty games including spin offs SINCE 2003! .? hello they act like ps4 and xbox one dont have repetitive games

      • UnburdenedLegume

        But PS4 has Bloodborne and Uncharted 4 so all is forgiven

    • Trusk

      You know, poeple are entitled to their concerns. I think the real problem is that they do not have the staff to accept the ideas of dedicated gamers. I am only saying this out of my concern for Nintendo, and I love Nintendo as if the company is my personal God of art. That was what I have been seeeing in video games since I was at least six…art.

  • Claus H. Luíz

    Nintendo has also announced that it will release a more traditional Switch Pro controller, mirroring the Wii U’s Pro controller. Thank the lord. Hallelu!

    • WoahMama EastGovnah

      yea we see it in the trailer 🙂

    • Fairy

      I just hope it comes out with the console, or at least at the same time

  • CoolGlaceon

    I’m hella excited for this. One thing I’m scared for, however, is that since the detatchable controllers (seem to) attach mechanically is that it might break due to wear and tear

    • Fairy

      I’m also quite scared about this, especially as the console is expected to survive excursions out of a building

  • Ithsme

    Something that concerns me greatly: I hope you can buy a second handlend part individually. My brother and I each get our own handheld, and I know most families do, so it’d suck if to get another handheld part you had to buy another console part. I can’t be the only one who’s worried about this, it’d be horrible if I had to share the handheld part with my brother.

    • WoahMama EastGovnah

      i mean it would be a smart move but it looks like they are going with a couch co-op so its possible

      • Ithsme

        I know so many people who would be p*ssed if you couldn’t. Me included, this looks great, but if you couldn’t individually buy another handheld part, sharing that with my brother would ruin alot of the experience for me.

    • Fairy

      The console and handheld are the same thing, what you think is a console part appears to be a charger and what allows connectivity to a TV.

      • Ithsme

        So what, nintendo is just abandoning all the families with more than one sibiling who each get their own handheld? This is a majority of the people I’d assume.

        • Fairy

          No I’m assuming they’re expecting each sibling to get a separate one because it’s literally one device that has an adapter to charge it and play it on TV

          • Ithsme

            I hope it’s not 400 dollars then, that’d be outrageous if they’re assuming that people will treat this like a handled and each get their own. They’ve already called it a home console, so I don’t think they’re treating it like a handheld. It looks good, but I need to know this before I’m completely sold.

            I’m going to buy it either way, but still

          • Fairy

            It is literally a handheld though, it can be taken out and about :p

            Hopefully it won’t be that much or you can buy it without the adaptor thing and cut money off of it

          • Ithsme

            It is a handheld, yes, but that doesn’t mean nintendo is treating it like one. They call it a “home console”. Yeah I really hope me and my brother can each get our own version of the handheld portion.

          • Fairy

            I dunno, the fact there whipping the handheld market and stumbling in the console market feels like they might bring it together to get more sales

          • Ithsme

            Nintendo has always favored family gaming, so I hope they take families who don’t want to share one handheld into account here.

          • Fairy

            Hopefully, but I could easily just see it be a hybrid of both and then them having a package deal for families which would include one adaptor and then X number of the actual console

          • Ithsme

            I’d be satisfied with that. Anything just as long as they don’t snub families.

          • Trusk

            I just thought that the Wii U and the Nintendo Switch would exist together untill 2020…

            A console existing for eight years is hella farfetched

          • Trusk

            You think…?

          • Fairy

            The Wii lasted five years

          • Trusk

            Clearly you do not read the articles online. Production ceased after 7 years in the market.

          • Vincentk

            Uh the ps3?

          • Fairy

            The PS3 actually sold well though throughout its lifetime

          • Vincentk

            Agreed so how is it farfetch for a console to last 8 years? Lol Maybe for Nintendo but ps3 did and still going

          • Fairy

            I was more referring to the Wii U specifically lasting for eight years, it was a mistake like you brining up biology in a console debate

          • Vincentk

            Oh,well in that case I am in agreement lol

  • The Queen of Peace

    No double screen ? Love to see DP remakes on this…

    • I’m thinking of ways they can get around this. Do we know if the Joy thing is a touchscreen?

      • WoahMama EastGovnah

        but what if u want to take it on the go

    • Fairy

      Maybe it’ll be the game boy layout (one screen and menus pop up) when in single screen and then the DS layout when you’re in dual screen?

      • But doesn’t the TV turn off screen when you take the screen controller out of it?

        • WoahMama EastGovnah

          yes it does

        • Fairy

          It could be different depending on the game? Just spit balling ideas :p

        • Pharap

          Consoles can’t turn monitors off, that was most likely done for effect.
          Monitors almost always have a separate power switch/power source.

          • WoahMama EastGovnah

            it might go to a black screen when its unplugged from the console so its not technically off

          • Well no the monitor wasn’t turned off, they just stopped putting the game on that screen

          • Pharap

            Then it will be going black on purpose.
            Normally if screens don’t have an input they either go blue or flash up a ‘no signal’ message, which would indicate that there is still display data being sent to the screen.

            So basically it doesn’t rule out the possibility of both screens being used, but it depends how powerful the GPU is and what the setup is like and how much graphics memory there is etc etc

  • Shady

    I can’t see any chance to reveal SM on this council.

    • I think it has a chance. Maybe Eclipse version will have a dual release

      • Ben Rhodes

        If there is Eclipse

    • Ithsme

      I’m on the fence.
      On one hand, better graphics and TV play for SM.
      On the other hand, they’d likely withold features from the 3DS version making me wait 4 more months for the complete experience.

      • Shady

        I hope so cuz I didn’t buy 3ds yet so I can start with that……but u can turn 1 screen to 2 but how turn 2 into 1 ??

  • Porygans

    Can someone say why there are no fossil pokemon in the leaked dex.

    • Fairy

      Johto didn’t have Fossils either, and I’d put that in spoilers

      • Porygans

        That’s right but every generation after it had it just like kanto didnt had a box legendary but every generation after it did.

        • Fairy

          And every generation had Gyms until they didn’t

          • Nintendalek42

            Removing gyms makes creative sense, as it allows new possibilities. Removing fossils makes no creative sense, it’s limiting your options and complete creative idiocy. I don’t belive it’s a comparable situation at all.
            Sorry If I seem cold but I’m not letting GF get away with this one >:( .

      • IT ALL COMES TOGETHER

    • Because the Hawaiian Islands are new islands formed by volcanos thus not enough time for fossilized species

      • Pharap

        Hawaii does have fossils, but not many. Mostly molluscs, which are kinda boring.

        • Ben Rhodes

          And Birds

          • Pharap

            We have enough birbs this year.

          • Ben Rhodes

            But imagine a Rock/Grass flightless Bird Fossil, Like a Moa, I know Moa aren’t in Hawaii, but T Rex aren’t in France so

          • Pharap

            I don’t know if I’d trust GF to make another bird fossil. Archeops could have been so much better but they decided to give it the worst abilitiy in the history of fossil pokemon.

          • Ithsme

            THERE ARE N E V E R E N O U G H B I R D S

        • Oh true. But yeah they are kinda boring

          • Pharap

            And birbs and corals, but again, those aren’t very special.

        • Ithsme

          I’ve heard that Hawaii, while not having many fossils, has quite unique fossils, so they’re missing their chance if there is none in the complete list.

          • Pharap

            They do have some unique extinct species, but none are particularly fantastic. Most are just plain-looking birds, insects and molluscs.

    • Ithsme

      It’s because it isn’t complete. 😛

      • Porygans

        I realy hope so

        • Ithsme

          Time to whip out some copy and paste action!
          Here’s my preliminary list of reasons, it’s not finished yet:
          1. Ash-Greninja is nowhere to be found in the datamine, meaning it’s stored somewhere else. Before you say “these are pokedex stills, of course it isn’t there”, Mimikyu and Wishwashi’s form changes are in there, so it makes no logical sense to not include Greninja’s form change.
          2. The 6 (counting the two after Mimikyu as one because of form changes) missing models cannot be totems. Firstly, these are pokedex stills, and if totems are just pokemon with an orange aura with no real unique features, they would not have a pokedex still. Secondly, we know of 7 trial captains, and there are only 6 totems here (again counting the two after Mimikyu as one), so even in the highly unlikely event that they are totems, there are STILL missing models here.
          3. This list does not include a pokemon that resembles the strange souvenir, nor does it include a pokemon that resembles the statues on Mahalo trail.
          4. The datamine does not include any stills for Charizard (who we’ve seen in trailers and is a pokeride pokemon) or Horsea (who we’ve also seen in trailers and is on an alolan statue).
          5. GameXplain claims they found MULTIPLE new pokemon in the first two hours of the game, and the leaked pokemon don’t look early game, as most are evolutions and the rest look late game. Remember, this is only the first TWO HOURS, so to find more than 1 new pokemon demonstrates how this can’t be complete.
          6. Marshadow is in the mythical pokemon section, which would mean that Solgaleo and Lunala are lacking a third legendary to the trio.

          • Fairy

            1) Those are confirmed to be the Alola Pokedex stills, Greninja isn’t in the Alolan Pokedex

            4) The Pikachu in Unova and the rare Pokémon in Kalos

            6) They could easily be ambitious renditions and/or randomly made. I’d even argue the statues are based off of humans

          • Ben Rhodes

            Also, Theres precedenct for statues to not resemble actual Pokemo

          • Pharap

            I’m not saying what we’ve got is everything, I’m saying some of your reasons are flawed:

            1. It has to be stored somewhere, that’s an indication that these ‘pokedex images’ are incomplete and might actually be there to stop people digging further.
            3. There’s nothing to say there is a pokemon that resembles the strange souvenir. The Riddler’s leak doesn’t count either since he’s got other things wrong.
            4. Charizard exists only as a ride pokemon, he’s not in the regional dex. Same with most of the ride pokemon.
            6. There might not be a third or it might not break the rule. Kyurem wasn’t immediately after Reshiram or Zekrom. Giratina was 2 Pokemon down from Dialga and Palki, Arceus was even further down.

          • Ithsme

            These are loose connections like I’ve said, nothing definite. I would assume that the strange souvenir was a Pokemon, it’d be very weird if not.

          • Pharap

            I’m pretty sure it only ever existed as a hint from G6 to where G7 was going to be set.

            Either that or it’s supposed to look like Marshadow.

    • Pharap

      Because GF decided in their infinite wisdom “no fossils this generation”

    • Nintendalek42

      Just another random, inexplicable, agrravating decision on GF’s part

      Also I know I’m heavily repeating what myself and others have said, but I want to put the “Johto didn’t have fossils” and “Hawai is a volcanic island” dud excuses people are giving to rest once and for all.

      “Johto didn’t have fossils”-Johto was basically Kanto.5, and we’ve had fossils every gen since, indicating it’s a pretty established pattern (as you’ve said). And no, stopping this pattern it makes no logical sense whatsoever as they’re purely stifling they’re own creativity.

      The geological argument: Now this one I’m just not gonna let pass anymore:

      a)Hawaii has a bunch of subfossils species, and apparently a few standard ones too… So yes it does have some form of fossils, not that that even matters, because …

      b) When the hell have game freak ever cared for biogeography or geological realism? This version of hawaii has red pandas and koalas. But they’re randomly going to decide not to put fossils because Hawaii doesn’t have proper fossils? I don’t buy it.

      c)Most importantly, if you take a look at the Alolan pokedex, it has 4 fossil lines from previous generations. Now unless we have to buy those fossils, that just kills the geological argument right in it’s tracks.

      Sorry if I come off as agressive :/ , I’m just sick of people making the same excuses that don’t even hold up to cover from one of GF’s usual bullshi¨t decisions.
      GF dropped the ball with fossils just like they dropped the ball with the number of new pokémon and the pre-release reveal ratio. Let’s not let them get away with it.

      • Pharap

        You forgot to address one of the other excuses:
        Pancakes.

        • That Pancake thing was the point when I realized that I might need to take these games less seriously

          • Pharap

            Pancakes was the point where all hope was lost.

            Tbh the anime should have been a big hint too.

            Pokemon is slowly becoming a comedy-parody ; n ;

        • Nintendalek42

          Of course! All the new fossils were turned into pancakes and that’s what made raichu psychic! Spot on! ;_;

  • Ben Rhodes

    Not related to the Switch but this is the current thread, Now we know UB’s are catchable, I decided to speculate the types. As they’d probably need types, I toyed around with the Triple Type idea for them, but decided to stick with the way we’ve had it since Gen 1. I’m not 100% on them, but it want to start speculation https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e97a93186bf78ff19b25d187a727a1972f4efe082815e934f93194aba251ad2a.png

    • Claus H. Luíz

      I think that Steel/Psychic one might be better off as a Grass/Fighting-type since it looks like a giant bamboo warrior.

      • Ben Rhodes

        That was one of the ones I struggled with, it gave me a Clemonts badge meets Medicham vibe, which is why I settled for that.

    • Ithsme

      I think at least dark for galaxy eating guy.

      • Ben Rhodes

        I considered that, but I felt ones that shared types might be classed as the same UB in each version, making 6 UB with 2 sharing a number, and I figured it might be those 2 steel ones, so I didn’t want a type clash

    • Trusk

      Shuoldn’t the UBs have better names than their so-called “code names”

      • Ben Rhodes

        Oh yeah sure, but I didnt’ feel like speculating that, I did speculate the Guardians names though, on another thread.

        Tapu Au or Tapu Whenua The Psychic one
        Tapu Ahi or Tapu Kanaku The Fire one
        Tapu Katao The Ghost one

    • UnburdenedLegume

      The crab is probably Water/Fighting, like its human counterpart Hala specializes in Fighting types (he also has a Crabrawler)

      • Ben Rhodes

        If they are actually counterparts that is, that too is speculation.

        • UnburdenedLegume

          Well since their French names are Ultra Chimeras, I am pretty sure thats exactly what they are.

          • Fairy

            They could easily be Chimeras of Pokémon or are just called that because they appear to look like human/Pokémon crossbreeds

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Regardless, they are connected to specific humans in the game. Its not a mere coincedence that Beauty and UB-01 look like Lusamine and Lillie.

          • Ben Rhodes

            Oh no sure they resemble them, but that doesn’t mean they are them, only 3 look like they’re related tbh. I really don’t feel Hala would randomly be one, One of them may be related to Wicke, and another to Faba. And possibly Plumeria.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            I never said they were them, I said they were counterparts. They come from another plane of existence, where Pokemon and humans are most likely the same thing.

          • Ben Rhodes

            But still, Hala feels like a Stretch. It’s more than likely Skull and Aether Admins.
            But even if they were counterparts, wouldn’t catching them and using them feel weird to you?

          • UnburdenedLegume

            They make me feel very unpleasant tbh. But I do want to know about their origins

          • Pharap

            Yet another reason I really don’t like the UBs. Get rid of the UBs and I’d happily put up with all the other weird changes we’ve had, but the UBs just don’t sit right with the rest of the world.

          • Fairy

            The thing is though Beauty is version exclusive when Lusamine isn’t.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            What does that have to do with Beauty looking like Lusamine? The evidence is right there lol. Even if its version exclusive, it doesn’t change the fact that the resemblance is uncanny.

          • Fairy

            Because it’d be odd if Lusamine shows up as an Ultra Beast in one game and not in the other

          • UnburdenedLegume

            But I never said that Lusamine is an UB. I said that they are counterparts from different dimensions

          • Fairy

            It’s still weird though if her counterpart doesn’t show up though if it’s such a huge story element

          • Ben Rhodes

            Specially if the other is Gladions counterpart.

          • Pharap

            Chimera:
            – Anything composed of very disparate part
            – A vain, foolish, or incongruous fancy, or creature of the imagination; as, the chimera of an author.
            – An organism with genetically distinct cells originating from two zygotes

          • Ben Rhodes

            That last one sounds like Zygarde

          • Pharap

            Zygotes are cells that form babies.
            Twins that look the same are known as ‘monozygotic’ because they are made from single zygotes that split, thus making the foetuses look the same.
            Twins that look different from each other are ‘dizygotic’ because each one is formed from a different zygote.

            At least I think that’s how it works, my time spent learning Psychology was years ago. And yes, biology like that is relevant to learning Psychology.

          • Ben Rhodes

            Alot of the time when you speak it feels like you’re talking down to people I dunno if that’s on purpose but it feels degrading.
            But what I meant is, Zygardes Cell and Core form to make Zygarde, obviously more than 2 but I thought the similarity of how it sounded was funny.
            And yes I know that.

          • Pharap

            Because I tried to explain it in plain English?
            Would you prefer I just tell people to ‘google it’ or send them to wikipedia instead of trying to explain it myself?

            I took ‘sounds like’ to be in the homophone sense, not in the similie sense. I suppose it is sort of similar, it might well contribute to Zygarde’s etymology.

            That last sentence was preempting “so you did psychology and you’re suddenly a biology expert?” which I’ve had said one too many times.

          • Ben Rhodes

            I try to talk to people like people while explaining, though sometimes it comes off as talking down to them. I do struggle with that. I’ve seen you mention Psychology a lot and I know how they’re related. I get that you’re trying to make it clear but it comes off like that, though I admit it isn’t easy. Specially when theres people not willing to actually listen.

          • Pharap

            I don’t get what the difference is, I’m just reciting the facts as they are, formally and with no room for ambiguity.

            I don’t think I mention it that much, only when it’s relevant somehow (i.e. any chance I get to insult Freud). You’d be surprised how many people don’t know what “twin studies” are.

            And my main subject of study is programming so I’m very used to people not having a clue what I’m talking about.
            And there are people here who are quite young (e.g. <17) and who are from different topics (i.e. they have different curriculums) so I don't like to assume too much knowledge of any topics in case I have to backtrack.

          • Ben Rhodes

            The difference is one makes people more likely to listen and the other makes people more likely to be annoyed. Even if your intentions are good it can still give a derogatory feeling. Part of it too might be because I feel like I’m talked down to by know it alls a lot, so it’s not 100% you, I just mean try and be a little more, nicer, instead of direct. Though I know that’s not easy. Specially when people have no clue, and also not face to face.

          • Pharap

            I think you’re reading more into what I said than there is.

            How do I even make information sound ‘nice’?
            Do I add more ‘lol’? Do I add emoticons?
            Is it because I used the word ‘thus’?

            Seriously, I don’t get it.

          • Ben Rhodes

            I’m not quite sure how to word it, but sometimes it feels like you’re insulting intelligence, it just feels a bit condescending. But you’ve given your reasons for why it’s like that, and I agree, it is hard to explain things to people without sounding like that tbh, like maybe start of with a positive, but then explain like “That sounds cool, however”. As I said I suck at explaining, it was just getting a bit annoying. Sorry for bothering you about it.

          • Pharap

            I don’t mind it being brought up, but you haven’t really given me much to go on.

            If you can’t explain precisely what it is that gives you that impression and can’t really suggest something specific to change then I don’t really have much to go on and I can’t really do anything about it. Especially since you’re the only one who has brought it up.

            You don’t have to apologise for it, I just wish you could’ve given me a clearer idea of why you get that impression.

            Again, most people I know wouldn’t know what a zygote is, let alone how they work.

            (As an aside: ‘cool’ is a word I would very seldom use.)

      • Fairy

        I don’t see where Water comes from tbh, it doesn’t do a good job of displaying it and Crabrawler proves they’re willing to do terrestrial crabs

        • UnburdenedLegume

          Yeah it could very well be pure Fighting too. Assuming they have typings of course

          • Ben Rhodes

            Unless they find a way around it, they’d have to have types otherwise Why be catchable and therefore useable they could have triple types though if they’re different enough.

          • Shady

            It’s not a crab it’s an elemental monster.

    • Prince Fae

      My favourite out of the UB’s is the one with the pillar and the teal colour scheme its so cool and elegant.

    • Shady

      I am pretty sure that Steel-Psychic in fact Grass-Psychic and the Water-Ground actually Ghost-Ground.

      • Ben Rhodes

        The first gave off a Bronzong feel, though it was hard, and the second that’s actually a good idea, I honestly didn’t think of Ghost for any.

  • SomeGuy

    ARE YOU GUYS READY FOR THE 90s NOSTALGIA BABY!? Nintendo is gonna be reigning as king again!

  • temporario23

    Please tell me that the portable part can be bought separately and work on its own. I’m not gonna waste so much money on a console just to play a Pokémon game.

    • Fairy

      The console and portable part are one and the same it appears

    • Pharap

      We don’t even know if they’ll have a Pokemon game yet.

      • EarthenWarrior

        They said they were making games for it
        Maybe finally a battle revolution

        • Pharap

          Battle revolution was dull.
          Call me when they make something XD/Colusseum style.

      • Jacob Price

        Actually they are, Nintendo has mentioned that they’re working on Pokemon content for the switch

        • Pharap

          “Pokemon content” is vague.
          Could be The next version of Pokemon Rumble or something.

          • Jacob Price

            It was actually confirmed by Ishihara himself that they were making games for it.

  • Fairy

    So I was joking around with my friend about it but now I kinda want Nintendo Overwatch skins if the game ever gets ported to the Switch

    D. Va-Kirby and Robobot Armour
    Symmetra-Samus
    Winston-Donkey Kong
    Soldier-Captain Falcon
    Tracer-Bayonetta

          • Trusk

            Sou da! Sou da!

          • Fairy

            True, but it’s one of the few that fit in with Zenyatta and it’d be a pain in the arse to make anyone else a Pokémon besides

            Greninja Genji

            IT’S TOO MUCH OF AN OBVIOUS CHOICE TO NOT PORT IT

            IF BETHESDA IS BRINGING SKYRIM OVER I’M SURE OTHER DEVELOPERS CAN RUN THEIR GAMES

            ALSO ITS FINE WERE JUST CAPITALISING ON THE HYPE 😛

          • CAPITALISING

            HA THATS PERFECT

          • Fairy

            I’M JUST PRAYING FOR BAYONETTA TRACER

            IT’D BE TOO PERF

          • Trusk

            Right, you think that Blizzard would work with Nintendo again, just like the SNES days? Ain’t gonna happen…sorry lass.

          • Fairy

            I’m sorry, but in 2016 we have

            -No Gyms in Pokémon
            -Skyrim on a Nintendo Console
            -Trump as a series candidate for POTUS

            Anything can happen XD

          • Trusk

            What does Trump have to do with THIS?!

          • Fairy
          • Prince Fae

            The shade of it all XD you’re like my new favourite person here

          • Trusk

            Yeah, yeah yeah. A joke.

          • This is a different time fam. The whole gaming market is overwhelmingly different than how it was 20+ years ago

        • Pokemania88

          Over watch? I’m just going crazy about 2k basketball, and sports!!! Could you imagine we can play madden nfl that would be crazy!

        • TheHipsterRowlet

          HELL YEAHHH I WOULD KILL TO PLAY OVERWATCH ON THIS (EVEN THOUGH I SUCK AT PLAYING AS WIDOWMAKER ON CONSOLE)

          • Fairy

            Widow’s my defense main so my heart goes out to anyone who plays her on console especially myself

          • TheHipsterRowlet

            She’s my defense main too! (Along with Mei) My #1 main is D.va though 😛 I also really enjoy playing as Mercy/Reaper/Tracer/Pharrah 🙂

          • Fairy

            My total main is Mercy, nothing like giving the enemy paranoia as they expect the mercy to pop out of nowhere and undo all their work XD

            I’m just a general support player, but Widow, Tracer and Rein are my other mains and I play Bastion but that’s a shame of mine :p

          • TheHipsterRowlet

            Oh Mercy is my 2nd most played haha! I really love her (and her witch skin I never got :C )
            It’s really frustrating for me to play as Mercy because Tracers come out of nowhere and always kill me haha. My team doesn’t really protect me 🙁 However I love it when I get to kill other characters using her pistol xD

          • Fairy

            Mercy killings are the best feeling in the world, especially when it’s a flanker trying to get you when they’re at low health

            Yeah, I feel teams not protecting their Mercy is a huge problem. Even just being near her could let her escape death and possibly get off a rez but other players blame you for their faults 😡

          • WIDOW MAKER IS AWESOME!

            Like I know it is an overdone trope but I love the sexy snipers. She is so badass I love her

          • TheHipsterRowlet

            She is! I’m so glad she was buffed! She really needed it xD

          • Trusk

            Not an Overwatch fan, but I would pick Tracer because she has a great body, very attractive, and I’d give to at least se her in a bikini *growls*!

    • Pharap

      2K the company?

      • Pokemania88

        Yes and games. We can play freaking 2kbasketball on a Nintendo console!!!! That’s crazy

        • Pharap

          Meh, only thing I’ve played of theirs is Borderlands 2.

          • Exeledus

            good choice.

          • Pharap

            I need to go back and complete it sometime, but yeah, did not regret buying 😛

          • Exeledus

            I remember grinding up my Mechromancer to take on the superbosses. I only beat 3 of them, then I stopped. I should get back to that.

          • Pharap

            I don’t have the money to spare for the DLC 😛

            I stopped around that electric mech thing near the train that was derailed, shortly after encountering (can’t remember her name, the girl voiced by Alex Birsch). I did however get two characters to that point, Zero and the blue haired siren (I think they were called sirens).

          • Exeledus

            spot on! if you have a ps4, I recommend the handsome collection, all on disc dlc included, for around $20. its a great deal as those games have tons of content.

          • Pharap

            I just have a computer, last console I bought was a Wii and last handheld was a 3DS 😛

          • Pokemania88

            I just love sports games and it’s practically the only reason I own an Xbox

          • Pharap

            The closest I’ve ever got to a sports game is TF2, or maybe Mario Kart 😛

  • Prince Fae

    OH MY GOSH I JUST GOT OFF WORK AND NINTENDO SNATCHED MY WEAVE COMING OUT THE DOOR! SKYRIM!!!! ZELDA!!! ALL THEY NEED IS DRAGON AGE AND I AM SET!!! OTHER COMPANIES BE SHOOK! I feel like my PS4 may have just had a best before date stamped on it for march 2017 (~ ̄▽ ̄)~

    • Pokemania88

      AND 2K!!!!!!

      • Prince Fae

        whats that?

        • Pokemania88

          Sports games

          • Prince Fae

            oh sorry I’m not a sports fan, but yay sports games for sports fans!!! 😀

    • This reveal is so good. Not as good as when Iwata pulled the Wii out of his freaking Jacket out of nowhere, but still amazing.

    was that…SKYRIM?!? 3rd party support here we come!

  • Exeledus

    I am HYPED. I hope others are to, this thing looks like just what Nintendo needs.looks like 3rd parties are going to be supporting it too.

    • Exeledus

      reading an article “The System will go on sale in march, with titles from nearly 50 publishers”

      • Trusk

        I better at least include a new Namco Museum title. It is one of my many wishes to Namco Ltd.

        • Exeledus

          I’m trying to find a list, ive heard theres a list of developers. I hear FROM software is on there which has my psyched. their games are made with the level of love and polish Nintendo’s are.

          • Trusk

            I do not give a s*** about the Nintendo Switch. All I care about is that Konami better lay of their Yu-Gi-Oh cards and make a new Gradius if they are to atone for their betrayal.

          • Exeledus

            trust me when I say they don’t give a damn about the cards either.

          • Trusk

            And who is “they”?

          • Exeledus

            konami. whoever the heck is in charge of distribution, marketing, and balancing over there needs to be slapped.

          • SomeGuy

            I love Yu-Gi-Oh some of my best times in college were spent traveling with friends and competing in regionals and nationals.

          • Pharap

            Your college years sound more fun than mine were.

          • SomeGuy

            Yea I didn’t love them. The realities of becoming an adult can be a tad jading at time. But there are always good times to be appreciated.

          • TheNintendoChip

            I agree, some of my best school memories come from playing Yu-Gi-Oh! when we all could!! I recently rewatched some of the anime for the nostalgia factor

  • Exeledus

    just a thing to note: they put the right joystick in a much more comfortable position. also, I’m super hyped for that splatoon port/sequel, team WSWR will splat another day!

      Also loving the new icon.

  • I hope so much that the eShop becomes more like Steam. Letting developers easily put their games on the Switch with a Green Light-like process would be a god send. That alone could put it ahead of competitors

  • Pokemania88

    Um…Did Greninja just leave ash?

    WAIT WHY THO

    • Greninja represents all of the development and good character writing in the anime

      • Pokemania88

        Yah. But I’m confused why he left.

        • Because we can’t have nice things

        • Armaggedon16

          Because with the sunmoon reboot. We aren’t gonna see him ever anyway

          • Pokemania88

            Tru. But I would have at least enjoyed for him to be at Professor Oak’s lab. Whatevs. I’m too hype for the games to worry about the anime now.

    • EarthenWarrior

      Zygarde appointed it to be the defender of Kalos

      I think they’re gonna keep quiet after this, just a taste
      Then in about a month they’ll announce a Switch Dirrect and when pre-orders go live, then let news flow at their whim

    Anybody notice these purple scales on Type:Null body actually belong to Salandit evo?

  • CoolGlaceon

    Price guesses for the Switch?
    I really feel like this thing will start at $499.. hopefully not tho

    • Pokemania88

      $300+

    • WoahMama EastGovnah

      $300-$350 System alone
      $350-$400 with game bundle

    • Fairy

      If it’s their replacement for handheld and console, I’d say about £350 for some sort of lite deal, and then cheaper for a deal without the adaptor in case it’s multiple people and they don’t need more than one

    • 350$

    • EarthenWarrior

      I suspect 300-400
      But I don’t care as I say often I have butt loads of saved cash doing nothing
      254$ in quarters
      Tips from work ranging from like 80$
      250$ for a rainy day
      and my work money

      Granted I owe my Dad like 600 but that’s a drop in bucket to me

    • Ithsme

          • Pharap

            He stopped the Pancakes infecting the other Pokemon! And pancakes can’t give humans powers! (Rumour has it malasadas can though).

            Plus he had a hammerhead shark as his Secretary of Defence and appointed 6 babies to the Supereme Court.

            To quote him:
            “The only thing we have to fear is gigantic, man-eating spiders!”

          • Oh give me a break. He single-handedly caused the drop the worth of PokeDollars to a record low and put Kanto in a 4 year depression

            Would have been okay with just scratching the form, not releasing the Pokemon itself. It makes no sense to me, but the writers dont want Ash having nice things lol.

      • Claus H. Luíz

        A switch, as it’s called in some parts of the USA, is a tree branch stripped of its leaves. It’s used to discipline children like a belt, etc.. So, basically, it was used for a good ol’ fashion ass-whoopin’.
        http://i.imgur.com/zIgkuWi.jpg

        • Pharap

          Ah, that explains why I didn’t get it. 😀

          • Claus H. Luíz

            Which country are you from? UK?
            Don’t know if you guys have ever used something like that to discipline misbehaving kids. Well, maybe waaay back then.

          • Pharap

            Yeah, Britain. (Specifically England.)

            We had a similar thing, but instead of a rudimentary ‘strip the branch of its leaves’ we had specially carved “canes”, and the practise was called “caning”.
            It was typically only used in schools, not by parents, and the cane was thinner than a ‘walking cane’.

            I don’t know when it was outlawed but it was some time in the last 50 years.

          • Claus H. Luíz

            Caning. lol It just sounds funny.
            Imagine during Christmas times. Was it… candy caning? Ohohoho~

          • Pharap

            Ironically ‘candy’ is also a very American term. As is the association of candy canes with Christmas.

            And while I think of it, so it Trick or Treating on Halloween.

          • Claus H. Luíz

            You guys just call candy “sweets,” right? I honestly have no idea how candy canes got associated with Christmas, but then again I don’t think Christmas as we know is what it was supposed to be.

          • Prince Fae

            most of our christmas traditions are pagan, with a few other cultures sprinkled in here and there so who knows

          • Pharap

            Anything plant-related is almost certainly pagan. The modern form of Christmas is mostly part pagan, part christian and part aethiest.

            However you look at it though, it’s only worth it for the special christmas episodes of various TV series. (Admittedly last year was a bit of a let down though.)

          • Pharap

            Yeah. People understand what ‘candy’ means because of the external influence, but ‘sweets’ still remains primary. (Where I live at least, it might be different in the big cities.)

            It’s probably related to commercialism, like the red santa thing supposedly being a result of coca cola’s influence.

            According to Wikipedia they weren’t mentioned in associated with Chritsmas until the late 1800s and they were more popular in America because of heavy production in Georgia.

          • Prince Fae

            they had caning in north america too, around the same time the switch was popular, the cane was usually used like you said in schools and some religious schools continued using them long after everyone else stopped, like the nuns used the cane on my dads knuckles to make him use his right hand instead of his left because they thought it was of the devil

          • Pharap

            The cane was used in many countries, but which ones I have no idea. Presumably everywhere with some form of British influence has used it at some point.

            I’m guessing he came from a place with an Irish influence?

          • Prince Fae

            I mean, yea we are of irish decent but we live in canada, thankfully in the past 30 years all of those schools no longer exist here

          • Pharap

            It was the reasoning behind the caning that gave it away. Ireland still holds quite heavy Christian beliefs in comparison to the rest of the UK. (The conflict between the Catholics and the Protestants is still somewhat present.)

            Aparently caning wasn’t outlawed in public and state-run schools in Britain until ’86, and wasn’t fully outlawed until ’99 for England & Wales, 2000 for Scotland and ’03 for N. Ireland.

            In some ways I wish we still had it, detention was never much of a punishment, nobody saw it as a deterrent.

  • Richard Haslam

    Pokemon Diamond and Pearl Remake will probably be on the Nintendo Switch, seeing that Pokemon is now focusing their attentions on that. And if that’s the case, then Gen 7 will be the first gen pokemon game to be on two separate Nintendo consoles. It’ll probably be able to trade with Sun and Moon to and from between the Switch and the 3DS.

    • I think that the Switch will have 3/DS games compatible so at the very least we will be able to play it here

      • Richard Haslam

        actually, 3DS only

        • Oh has this been confirmed?

          • Richard Haslam

            no, but if it’ll be backwards comparable, it’ll won’t be for the old DS game. If D/P remake is released for Switch, then it’ll certainly come full circle, as it’s the first Pokemon gen to be released on the DS when that was new.

          • UnburdenedLegume
          • Yes but what does this have to do with it?

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Nothing lol but I wasn’t sure if you already had

          • Pharap

            Part 35?
            TL;DW

    • Pokemania88

      DAMN THAT”S GONNA BE CRAZY

    • WoahMama EastGovnah

      honestly i hope not, i want a new gen to be the first real step into the next generation

      • Richard Haslam

        same could be said for the DS with Gen 5 when Gen 4 was released on that. I wasn’t impressed. That should’ve waited until 3DS. Nah, I think it’s better releasing it on a console in which is not backwards comparable with the DS, rather than buying the same product again, just like Twilight Princess. Besides, The Pokemon Company have revealed so that they are already at work on it.

        • Pharap

          If they’d released G5 on the 3DS it probably would have looked worse. They needed a lot of time to rewrite the game engine to work with the 3DS’s hardware.

          • Richard Haslam

            Then why is it refereed as Generations then?

            Gen 1 – Gameboy
            Gen 2 – Game Boy Color
            Gen 3 – Game Boy Advance
            Gen 4 – DS
            Gen 5 – DSi (DS)
            Gen 6 – 3DS
            Gen 7 – 3DS (Switch)

            The Gen 5 I can understand, but a DSi is not a Gameboy Color as it can easily function to and fro between DS and DSi with DS games. Isn’t really backwards comparable as it is the same console. Also why two Gens on the 3DS? For a generation to work, it must be on a separate system altogether.

            From what is said, Game Freak has now started focusing with the new console. Could be the G4 remake. Could be Gen 7.5 or even G8. We will never know until the next year.

          • Pharap

            The DSi was still as DS, the processor was almost identical. The DSi was to the DS what the New 3DS is to the 3DS.

            Pokemon generations are not tied to the console they are played on.

            And it’s backwards ‘compatible’, not backwards ‘comparable’.

    • towelgirl21

      Man, I don’t wanna have to spend $400 on a console I won’t use on my TV just to play Pokemon. I couldn’t afford more than one pro controller for my Wii U, and I couldn’t even play cheap old Wii games because I had no Wiimotes. Got frustrated at my lack of money and sold it. Never even finished Bayonetta 2 🙁

      I know you can take the Switch apart and carry it around, but it looks a lot less replaceable than a 2DS (which is what I use).

  • SomeGuy

    That thing isn’t a touch screen right? I’m not crazy am I? Though it would be nice if it was if only because then maybe Wii U and 3DS games could potentially be digitally compatible

    • Claus H. Luíz

      I really hope it is touch screen. I actually like that feature a lot. :

      • SomeGuy

        They seem to very purposefully show that you never use both screens at any given point in time so I have my doubts.

        ‘Tis a shame. Looks like my (3)DS and Wii (U) libraries will be stuck on my 3DS and Wii U. Good thing I went digital. Cut down on old video game clutter.

    Hmm… Didn’t notice that. Maybe it’ll function just like the New 3DS’ tiny analog stick?

      the guy plugs in headphones are one point, but the ones he is using are clearly wireless

      • Claus H. Luíz

        Wait, what? The picture I put up is of the tiny D-pad.

        • WoahMama EastGovnah

          idk i just wanted to point that out.

          • Claus H. Luíz

            Ohh. Well, ya confused me. But, great info on the headphones.

          • WoahMama EastGovnah

            yea ik, i just saw Swtich comment and i was like ” I MUST TELL SOMEONE”

    • SomeGuy

      Lol It is so very interesting how millenilals have this trope where we just sorta magically have everything we could ever want and live in fancy apartments in major cities. Ironically enough I am moving to LA with my two best friends next year lmao

      • Claus H. Luíz

        Ugh… that sounds great. Good luck & have fun on your trip.
        May your friendships never falter.

        • SomeGuy

          One of them currently goes to NYU for film and his dad is self made and crazy rich so that friend really is the people from this trailer lol

  • HMK’s reaction was beautiful

  • For the people who responded to me yesterday about the Dittos, I’m going to try to distribute them evenly, if you’re all cool with that. I will respond back to the old responses you all have given me with my FC and Ian. Of course, I will need all of your info as well. There really isn’t anything I need specifically; so, just give me whatever (I like fighting and normal types) or a 5-6iv adamant/jolly Buneary

        • Shady

          Did u mean he just one of ur art by coincidence?

          • No no, this isn’t mine. I just saw this picture, liked it, and drew a couple pictures because I think it’s cute

  • Ithsme

    On today’s episode of Ithsme is in denial of the leaks being complete, I bring you this video:
    https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=ArNdThqpWMw
    Watch the section called “pop up images”. Do you see the section image (looks a little like the squirt bottle, so it’s obviously modeling a Pokemon. Except, something’s off. Maybe I’m just blanking, but we have not seen anything like that Pokemon just yet. Unless I’m missing something here, then this is a Pokemon we haven’t been shown.

    SIDE NOTE: During the “in closing” section, what are those dark small images do you think?

    • Fairy

      Wait, what image are you talking about?

      Also, those little black images are all the different body types of Pokémon, which you can use a search function in the Pokedex 😀

      • Ithsme

        The second one on the second row (if you count the little box as a row). It’s around the :50 mark.

        • Fairy

          I don’t think that’s a bottle, it looks more like a lucha mask imo

          • Ithsme

            It has to be based on something though, this is the Pokemon world we’re talking about here, where everything from watering cans to pastries are designed like a Pokemon.

        • Pharap

          Do you mean the zygarde core cube or the Hawlucha mask?

          • Ithsme

            The former. What about that looks like a Hawlucha?

          • Pharap

            Green. Red. Wrestling theme. Like the ride gear helmet.

          • Ithsme

            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6b95ebd9f0c4247fc853b7c02f602071edf4b08c96d71535173e6a7fe441d0be
            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/6b95ebd9f0c4247fc853b7c02f602071edf4b08c96d71535173e6a7fe441d0be.png https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/d690699854624d4338441519656e7e481aadfc80b9690b17172fccbe5e0de6ad.png .png
            Firstly, it looks nothing like Hawlucha at all IMO. Secondly, it looks nothing like the ride helmet. Sure there’s the colors, but look at the color placement. It’s all off. Lastly, even if it was the ride helmet, it would have to be designed based on some Pokemon, not just a random thing.

          • Pharap

            It’s similar, Hawlucha’s colour scheme is reasonably unique. And there’s no reason to assume it’s even based on a Pokemon. I never said it was the ride helmet, I said it was ‘like’ the ride helmet.

            The colour scheme could just be a reference to Pokemon Red, Green and Yellow. The design is probably just generic lucha rather than trying to be something specific. The yellow streak looks like it’s just lighting or a long pikachu tail, and the red and green have a fire and grass theme.

          • Ithsme

            Since when did the Pokemon world take inspiration from non-pokemon things? I mean, come on, this counter is sorta pushing it.

          • Pharap

            Since Ash’s cap isn’t based on a Pokemon, and neither are a fair number of the shirts and clothing. The Contest costume in G6 wasn’t, the Devon Scuba Gear wasn’t, the Devon Scope wasn’t, the Magma Suit and Aqua Suit weren’t, the Dowsing Machine wasn’t.

          • Shady

            I can’t see it as Hawlucha mask….it’s looks very different.

    • Ithsme

      Edit: *second image

    • Pharap

      They left the symbol table in…
      *headdesk*

      GF, that is not how you obfuscate!
      Ordinals exist for a reason!

      • Ithsme

        What’s your counter to this evidence? xD

        • Pharap

          Sorry, had to complain about that, that explains why people could reverse engineer so easily. There are tools that read symbol tables and can use them to produce assembly code with functions , so copying it to PC and getting decent assembly code would be a 5 minute job with the right tool to hand. Then they’d only have to read the function names until they saw something that sounded interesting and read further to figure out what it does. Only marginally harder than reading the original source code. In fact the right tools could turn the assembly into C to make it even easier.

          Thank you 🙂

          • Ithsme

            No problem! Always willing to brainwash convince people we’re getting more!

        • Prince Fae

          can we just take a moment to talk about those Sun and moon flutes for a second, like I wonder if we get them and call the legendaries with them (which would mean they have no story like XY’s legendaries)

          • Ithsme

            They have to have some story, they have the prevos and all

          • Prince Fae

            thats fair, I hope they do

          • Pharap

            I don’t see how having flutes suddenly means ‘no story’.
            Lugia and Ho-oh had wings.
            Groudon and Kyogre had orbs.
            Palkia and Dialga had stones.
            Reshiram and Zekrom had orbs.
            Xerneas and Yveltal had nothing.

          • Prince Fae

            Was just an observation doesn’t mean its correct. The reason I say this is because so far we haven’t really heard anything about either of the legendaries but we have heard all about the UB’s and the Tapu pokemon, and it seems like they will have the main story focus in the game so far (again seems like, doesn’t mean it will) and XY they were kind of just called forth randomly from a machine reviving them. Im ready for GF to prove me wrong, it was just a feeling I had.

          • Pharap

            It wouldn’t be a surprise if they just told us all about them beforehand. Misdirecting our attention to the UBs stops people questioning the legendaries.
            I’m pretty sure this isn’t the first time we didn’t know the purpose of the legendaries until actually playing the game.

            It won’t be like XY, we already know they have actual shrines dedicated to them and their own special moves and forms, both of which have had attention drawn to in videos.

            (When they appeared in full 3D)

            (And the first time their abilities were shown)

            Signs point towards purposely drawing our attention away to keep them mysterious. Like how the in Jaws the shark itself waits until the final act before it actually apears ‘in person’.
            Seeing the effect of a being before seeing the being itself is a well used trope for a good reason.

          • Prince Fae

            I’m well aware of this tactic and this being the possibility, thank you 🙂

          • Pharap

            Just saying, it’s certainly possible.

            Especially because of the shrine thing, Xerneas and Yveltal didn’t have shrines like all the others. Dragonspiral Tower, Cave Of Origin, Whirl Islands, Tin Tower, Spear Pillar.

            X & Y just got dumped in a lab under a henge, no shrine/ruins.

            That’s 2 big things (that and the flutes) that Solgaleo and Lunaala have running for them. Not to mention the prevos/altformes.

    • Prince Fae

      I feel like I sucked you down into this conspiracy theory with that game explain comment and now you’re gunning for it harder than like anyone else here, I don’t even have to look for evidence anymore XD. Be the face of this revolution Ithsme! Convince them all!!! lol (hunger games music starts playing)

    • Was this still a question?

      • TCRowlet

        I was adamant this would finally be another dual region game. So many hints and connections, I feel misled. Couriway Train crashed ;~;

        • Ithsme

          I felt that the battle frontier we be DLC.

          We all feel betrayed, let’s just boycott the game.

          • TCRowlet

            I don’t think it will be DLC, Battle Frontier I’m still 100% firm in my belief that’s in the game 🙂 But Kalos ;~; I’m just gonna sit here and cry the rest of the day away.

          • Ithsme

            🙁

          • Green

            If Pokemon gets DLCs, I will stop playing (jk, but I’ll be mad)

    • Ithsme

      D:
      Look on the bright side, you have to new Pokemon to look forward to, and if we’re lucky the BF!

      Also I don’t get how the word of one datamined means anything.

      • Ithsme

        *dataminer

      • TCRowlet

        I still wanna believe ;~; Maybe they kept it out of the demo, I’m grasping at straws now.

        • Green

          Usually, I’d post some kind of Spongebob picture here, but I doubt there will be Kanto or Kalos

        • Ithsme

          I’m stretching here, but GF likes to be unexpected. People expected another Kalos game in Gen 6, quite a few people expected Kalos in SM, but NOBODY expects a Kalos game after SM in gen 7!!!
          Lol I’m just making something up

          • TCRowlet

            They’re going to add a train station to Sinnoh and the DP remakes will let us go back to Kalos

          • Ithsme

            Best games ever

          • Green

            I hoped that in Kalos, after the game was over, you’d go to the train station and your dad would be waiting for you and he’d take you to Hurrn. But then on my 11th birthday, Hurrn was cunfrmd

          • Prince Fae

            I think for me the reason I feel calm on dark and dreary days as well as rainy days is because I am a dark and chaotic person, nighttime gives me energy but the day time puts me to sleep. There are many other reasons but they are not important

          • Green

            Yet, you love fairies

          • Prince Fae

            yes of course…? If you mean to say why I don’t love the dark type its probably because that kind of obvious darkness isn’t what I identify with 🙂

          • Ithsme

            Darkness isn’t what I identify with

            “I am a dark and chaotic person”

            xD

          • Prince Fae

            I don’t think you understand what I mean, its more accurate if you take the whole statement. “that kind of obvious darkness isn’t what I identify with” meaning that the darkness that I identify with is not something you can really see but only something I can feel. No one is 100% good or bad, we are all somewhere in the middle, if you really want to understand truly what I am talking about you have to look outside the box. Thats what I’m all about, being outside the box, unexpected and unpredictable

          • Ithsme

            You lost me there, I had 6 exams and the PSATs this week my brain is fried, I’m not ready for deep thinking lol

          I like being wet

          EDIT: Like with water

        that’s why i got a gazebo

          Lucky son of a gun, Scottish properties tend to be too small unless you live out in the country or are absolute loaded with money to even attempt to do something like that 😡

          But a park in the city has one and it’s so nice

          • Pharap

            The rest of Britain is pretty much the same ftr

            America has nearly double the floorspace on average, if not more.

          • Fairy

            Makes sense, much bigger country and all. And to be honest, I don’t understand why Americans need so much space XD

            I’m far too used to bedroom (1-3)/bathroom/living room/kitchen and I feel like it’s enough tbh ^^;

          • Pharap

            It’s also a matter of population density. They have less people per square metre than we do. Britain has way too many people. Especially London, factoring London out drops Britain’s overall population density by a reasonable amount.

            I temporarily lived in a 3 bedroom house for half a year, but otherwise I’ve been in the same 2 bedroom (1 of everything else) place all my life 😛

            (I’d like a bit more space though, we have too much accumulated junk and I’d like a place to computer alone in.)

          • Fairy

            London has a larger population than Scotland

            That’s honestly terrifying, when I was on a London trip with my school there was more people with me in that city than there was in Scotland

    Only thing that could make this better is if it turns into a tablet with a browser and whatnot. This thing looks mature enough for public. I was just thinking how cheap my 3DS XL looks. Can’t wait for Pokemon on this! Will finally look how we always wanted it.
    I feel like the first Pokemon game they are working on will be like Pokken Tournament.. but after that, hope they drop the 3DS, though I will slightly miss 3D, and focus on this only!
    Having the console and handled be 1, mean no skipping out on the power of handheld games. Awesome!

  • Ithsme

    Of counts the first thing my brother says when he saw the switch was my reaction too: “Can you buy an extra handheld part?”
    Nintendo better not dissapoint me here, or else there will be some very fun arguments between us in the future. Nintendo has always favored family gaming, they better not assume that a family would be willing to share one handheld. -_-

    • EarthenWarrior

      my brother was deadpan and dry witted when i showed him, and the other one pointed out all the faults with it
      i swear my siblings can’t ever be excited about anything

      • Prince Fae

        are you saying you get excited about things????

        • EarthenWarrior

          i’m excited for this
          breath of the wild
          yooka-laylee
          and sun and moon

          but those buttholes don’t give a crap

          • Prince Fae

            I cant wait for them to send me my code for Yooka-laylee when it finally gets finished.

            BOTW had a new trailer recently btw, almost the same things but some new, yay

          • EarthenWarrior

            ditto mi amigo

        • Fairy

          Of course he does

          Have you seen him planning world domination? Like a kid on Christmas

          • EarthenWarrior

            i’m figuring out what fault-lines are critical enough to sink continents

          • Fairy

            Which ones are you sinking e-e

          • EarthenWarrior

            you’ll see

          • Fairy

            Better not be western Europe

            We’re too trendy to die

          • Pharap

            Trendy?
            Not the word I would have picked.
            *makes plans to hand trident over to Earthen in exchange for keeping Britain intact*

          • Fairy

            London, Paris and Milan are like the fashion capitals of the world :p

          • Pharap

            London feels like a foreign country though, it’s so alien compared to the rest of the places I’ve been in the UK. People’s behaviour and attitudes are really different (not necisarily negative, but still odd), the way things are structured and laid out are different and a lot of the place is cleaner and more modernised. It’s really weird.

            Maybe it’s like that in some other places, but tbh I’ve felt more at home in Greece than I have in London.

            Now that I’m done with that: fashion is unimportant 😛

          • Fairy

            But fashion is an art form 😮

            Like I don’t think everyone should engage in it, just like not everybody is forced into drama and painting

            I like London, I literally got lost without a phone there but easily navigated my way back due to the structure. If it was New York or something I’d of been screwed XD

            I also love the contrast between old and new, it’s an art in and of itself. And it is a city of art, really, due to the plays and musicals

            I also just feel more at home with more people, it grounds me. I’m reminded that others are living and that I’m not necessarily alone.

          • Pharap

            Some things should stay hypothetical or on the drawing board *looks at Lady Gaga’s meat dress*.

            Most people are made to experience drama, painting and textiles through the national curriculum 😛 It’s not being made to do it as a career, but it’s still important. Also it depends on a person’s outlike, there are people who treat all clothing as a fashion statement and not merely coverings to keep warm and ‘decent’.

            I’ve never got lost there before. If you’re not going a large distance it’s pretty easy to use buildings as landmarks. Some places are nicer than others.

            Plays I’ll agree with, not musicals.
            I prefer the old bits. I went to an art gallery in Camden once and had to stop myself laughing at the ‘art’. It was no oil painting, pun intended.

            Eh, I don’t like places with lots of people. Too much judgement, too many negative vibes. I liked the docks though, nice and calm with a gentle breeze.

          • Fairy

            Are you saying musicals aren’t art?

            Bevause if you are they’ll find me with a knife over your body saying

            https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f97317e75ef5c9c13d6beacacc7a2bd9ae64609b9b1be476a07b06b230d21051.gif

      • Ithsme

        I’m going to be shocked if you aren’t able to buy a family bundle/buy a second handheld, people with siblings who aren’t willing to share is a big part of the market I’d assume.

  • TheReece25

    I know one thing. If this doesn’t have a cool new pokemon game. I will be disappointed yet again, but Splatoon 2 is cool though

    • The Last Kurusu

      Your back where have you been?! How have you been? And they said a while back within 6 months of release they will have a Pokémon game for it (my friend thinks a format like Stadium so it can be a multiplayer game)

      • MenacingCascoon

        I became one with the shadows, I will be back with the shadows soon, I just want to talk about the Switch

        • The Last Kurusu

          Need me to catch you up?

          When will you become the VengefulDustox?

          • MenacingCascoon

            No catching is necessary, Im going in SM blind. Maybe I will evolve if BattleFrontier comes back

          • The Last Kurusu

            Just going to say one name if you don’t mind

          • The Last Kurusu

            Demo I’ll say demo

          • Well dang you will never evolve 🙁

      • MenacingCascoon

        And really they said pokemon game? I hope it is a Battle format of the games

    • Dang, still haven’t evolve huh?

    Part 2 of your daily loose evidence stuff.
    Not sure how accurate this is, but I found his one Reddit, the list of Pokemon on MeleMele supposedly found somehow with the datamine: http://pastebin.com/DRd8c2mm
    If you recall from the evidence I’ve said multiple times, GameXplain found MORE THAN ONE NEW Pokemon in the first two hours of the game, which quite obviously take place on MeleMele. Now, if this list is true, there is ONLY ONE NEW POKEMON in MeleMele that isn’t an evo, which is the leaked anemone thing. It isn’t even near the beginning of the dex, it is near the end of the island. If GX found more than one new Pokemon in the first two hours and there’s only one non-evo Pokemon found on late MeleMele, it’s obvious at this point they found something that we don’t know of. Evidence number I lost count.

    Holy Mew! Did anyone notice this??
    Here I was thinking the 1st one “evolved” into Lunala and the 2nd into Solgaleo.
    This gen is unofficially the 2-stage evo gen.
    https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CvJh4-EWIAQN8gE.jpg

    • Prince Fae

      I feel like this makes way more sense then what was suggested before, the middle stage is like a cocoon

    • Pharap

      I dunno, that first one doesn’t really look like Solgaleo much, it looks much more like Lunala.

      • Claus H. Luíz

        From space puff, to cosmic cocoon, to galaxy beast! But, there is still a chance Solgaleo and Lunala don’t share a “pre-evo” and actually have their own. Interesting stuff, nonetheless.

        • Pharap

          I think that chance is very slim.

  • Pharap
    • Prince Fae

      The old man from S/M gives me the creeps, the old man from Breath of the Wild seems like he could kill you with his pinky finger. He’s deff gunna be a BAMF I hope his role is mysterious and cool

      • Fairy

        The old guy in SuMo creeps me out for various reasons

        One being his fashion sense

        Tf is he wearing

        • Prince Fae

          his pants are higher than the trees in my backyard

          • Fairy

            As are has socks

            And seriously, those shoes with that hair?

          • Prince Fae

            he reminds me of a young version of that creepy old man from family guy

          • Fairy

            Oh God he kinda does

        • Pharap

          And this is one of the many reasons I avoid leaving the house.

          So much for the world being non-judgemental.

          • Prince Fae

            hmmm…..

          • Fairy

            The difference being this is a joke video game character and thus is garnering no sympathy form me at all :p

          • Pharap

            Aha, so it’s one rule for real people and one for virtual ones?

            (Seriously though, I think people do judge clothing too much.)

          • Fairy

            Yeah pretty much :p

            I always internally judge, I can’t help it, but I’d always treat an actual person with respect and will probably care more about them.

            And I guess the reason so many people care about clothing is because it’s easily the most evident expression of oneself: it’s one of the first thing people notice about you and it can also just express so much more (like this is my job, this is my team, this is my culture, etc)

          • Pharap

            Clothing, much like makeup, is easy to lie with. Put on a fancy suit, tell someone you’re a salesman and they’ll probably believe you.

            I’ve never put much faith in clothing, I tend to forget what people I meet/know are wearing unless it’s out of the ordinary.

  • Fairy

    Out of curiosity, how old are people here? Just wondering because how gay this website is was a surprise and I’m wondering if there’s anything else surprising about the peeps here, like the site being older/younger than average than other sites 😮

        I could see you being older, you’re definitely a lot more level headed and don’t seem to be infected with the stronger desire for city life that even young nerds have

        • Pharap

          Thank you.
          My life has necesetated level-headedness a fair bit.

          I’d prefer ‘geek’ to ‘nerd’ but I know what you mean. I don’t know all the motivation for people wanting ‘city life’ but the ones I’m aware of (drinking & clubbing, meeting people, materialism) aren’t things that motivate me.

  • Pokemania88

    So what are we thinking as to if Pokemon sun and moon will be on the Switch.

    Or maybe the next generation of pokemon games.

    • Ithsme

      I don’t know if I want that.
      On one hand, better graphics.
      On the other hand, that means that the 3ds version will have restricted features, and I’ll have to wait 4 months after the release for the full experience.

      • Pokemania88

        I mean, I don’t think Sun and Moon will be on the Switch. But I do think we get gen 8 on there.

        • MelloMori

          Let’s see how the console does. While it certainly is powerful, it’s running the Vita risk right now with handheld dev’s, and we’ll have to see how we’ll they can communicate the idea of a console game that can be played on the go, and one that is meant to be thought of as a handheld that can be played on a big screen.

    • EarthenWarrior

      i’m not thinking that
      i don’t think main games will hit the Switch THAT soon
      they should should start small with one-two spin-offs and a battle revolution game with sun and moon’s sequel

      • Pokemania88

        Yah. I think we might get gen 8 on the switch

  • WoahMama EastGovnah

    Unreal engine 4 has confirmed that they are working with devs for switch games

  • Fairy

    To be honest this kinda sounds dumb but I kinda hope they do a Pokémon spin off for the switch

    Like complete tabula rasa, no old Pokémon at all, the only things coming from the main series being the rough concept of turn based battles, the current type chart, and relevant moves and abilities they can use for these spin off Pokémon

    Or a harder, more mature (teenaged) spin off series

    Or both as one project

    • Ithsme

      Nah I don’t want that.

      • Fairy

        I just feel the main series has a lot of clutter and I feel a back to the basics sort of game would be just what some people need

        • Ithsme

          I thought you meant drop the Pokemon title and make a digimon/yokai watch esque spinoff. Still don’t want it though, I rather like what it is now.

          • Fairy

            Nah, it’d still be Pokémon at its core, and it’d just be a spin off so peeps who like tge main games can just not touch it or have both :p

          • Ithsme

            That’s true, as long as it didn’t interfere with what Pokemon at its core is.

          • Pharap

            Your description was basically “It’s pokemon, but without all the 720+ existing pokemon”.

            Scrapping megas and z-moves I could agree with, but retconning every single pokemon is quite drastic.

          • Fairy

            Tbh I just feel it’d be a nice break way from the main series

            And one of Pokémon’s problems is that its designs tend to be limited by the game’s art style, and I’d love to see them try their hand at others, like more realistic or different animated styles

          • Pharap

            I’d be for it if they went cell shaded like Wind Waker and Breath of the Wild.

  • Haxford
    • SomeGuy

      Eh.

    • Fairy

      To be honest I like Liften, it has so much more personality than a ‘3edgy5me’ black Tiger ever could’ve

      • Ithsme

        Litten 3 tho. ._.

        • Fairy

          Liften is Litten3 and Litten3 is adorable :3

          • Ithsme

            Litten 3 is the very embodiment of dissapointment.

          • Fairy

            Tbh I thought Litten was the dissapointment ^^;

          • Pharap

            Litten is sugoi, Tony is a mess.

    • Shady

      Regardless if this thing beautiful or not …..It can’t be a pokemon.

    • Ultron

      “But this is so generic. Like, at least the one we got is creative”

      TOO BAD IT STILL LOOKS BETTER THAN THE BULLET-PROOF VEST WEARING, FOAM FINGER WAGGING, BIPEDAL POS WE GOT.

      -Composes self- Yeah, Litten3 sucks.

      • Pharap

        When I hear people saying ‘generic’ I’m going to take it as a sign that someone is doing something right.

        “Lurantis is a generic mantis” Approved
        “The toucan is a generic toucan” Approved
        “Tsareena is so generic” Approved
        “Alolan Raichu is totally non-generic” Disapproved

        • Ultron

          Toucan is great :3 I’ll take concise designs over weird bizarre shit that doesn’t work any day (looks at cryogonal among other things)

          • Pharap

            Yeah, Cryognal is… nobody knows what Cryognal is, they just try to forget it exists.

    • Pharap

      Instead we have that awful wrestling thing ; n ;

  • Ithsme

    I’ve come to the sudden realization that we’ve never had a quadrapedal fire starter in its third stage. Don’t say typhlosion.

    • Chaos

      Sudden?

      • Ithsme

        I’ve never thought about it much.

        • Chaos

          That’s actually what the big commotion is about in regards to Fire Type starters…

          • Ithsme

            I just thought people hated Fire/Fighting

          • Chaos

            People hate Fire starters that start off on four legs and end up on two

          • Ithsme

            So basically the last three gens

    • Ultron

      Typhlosion is a damn poser.

    • …………………..Eevee..

      • Ithsme

        It’s not a starter Pokemon, not counting spinoffs.

        • It was Gary’s starter in Yellow

          • Ithsme

            By that logic Corphish is a starter

          • Fairy

            Corphish is best starter

          • Yeah I know I’m just reaching

      • Ultron

        Even if Gary gets Eevee as a starter in Yellow, it’s still not 3 stages.

    • TheReece25

      Why can’t we say Tyhplosion? He was mix

      • Ultron

        Only ever depicted on all fours in the anime though. It sort of counts but not really cause the anime isn’t canon in comparison to the games.

        • Pharap

          Excuse the music (i.e. mute it) but:

  • MewMew

    With the Nintendo Switch I think its very interesting and it looks fantastic! the only thing I can think of though is that it’s going to be weird and take some time to get use to not having a double screen for Pokemon games but I’m still looking forward to trying it out!

  • Haxford

    It’s actually not bad. If we got this design some gens earlier, everyone would be very pleased. It’s just that it’s bipedal AGAIN and it looks like a fighting-type AGAIN: it becomes boring.
    http://i.4cdn.org/vp/1476923496306.jpg

    • Ultron

      No, stop trying to justify it. That leads to settling, which leads to accepting mediocrity as the norm.

    • Ithsme

      We would, but it’s like waiting years for a change and getting the same thing. And again. And again. And again!

    • TheReece25

      He looks Awesome! Especially in 3D.. that’s what sold him for me. Just was upset Litten changed from calm to aggressive, but they all grew up, like humans kind of. Just pray not fighting!

      • Ultron

        Does fighting type even matter at this point? It’s still an aggressive masculine fire starter again.

        • TheReece25

          what are you talking about? Last gen was feminine.. . emboar was disappointing.. but blaziken rocks and looks completely dif from this.. plus i think blazkine before meg looks androgynous. And they are not all agressive either

          • Ultron

            Delphox is obviously the outlier. I’m just saying the variation between fire starters is lacking. I almost never choose them anymore.

          • TheReece25

            Maybe if you sum them down to typing.. and bipedal.. other than that, they are very different.

          • Ultron

            Meh, 3/7 have fighting as a second typing, 7/7 are bipedal, almost all are aggressive in demeanor or appearance. Honestly it’s boring to me. The grass starters have the best variation and I’m really not even a fan of grass type.

          • TheReece25

            Typhlosion at least is a mix of standing and quad. And most seem battle ready.. not agressive to me.. maybe another word. Especially not fennekin. But its cool to all have opinions. I love his design tho

          • Ultron

            No, everyone must agree with me or they’re wrong!!! I do like Fennekin though, but wasn’t impressed by delphox. I like when it uses its wand in battle though.

          • TheReece25

            Oh, and infernape still looks major cool.I’d only toss emboar.. though love pignite

      • Flamer

        It’s not… It’s Dark.

    • Shady

      It’s not the official art though I can sense the dark through it………Y ppl still hate him cuz humans r affected by each other and the hate turn into Beliefs…….but I am not surprise how it become most popular in ppl team.

    • Flamer

      He looks like a tiger, he looks like a wrestler. He dies NOT look like Blaziken, he does NOT look like Emboar, he does NOT look like Infernape! He looks like himself! He is NOT Fire/Fighting either! Who cares about bipedal? Just don’t use him! He looks amazing and I can’t wait to have one on my team.

      • Haxford

        Calm down, I just said he’s not bad. He looks appealing, sure, but it’s just that I’d have liked some change now.

      • Ultron

        It’s all about variation. We also don’t know he’s not fire/fighting, so don’t count your eggs before they’ve hatched.

        • Flamer

          You want variation? Use one of the other 801 Pokémon! There’s a wide variety for you!

          • Ultron

            Oh, trust me. I’m gladly using Rowlet. But that doesn’t mean I can’t be disappointed. I like cats and wanted something resembling a tiger.

      • Ithsme

        Bipedal isn’t what bothers me.
        Type isn’t what bothers me.
        What bothers me is, WHY ARE 4/7 FIRE STARTERS SOME SORT OF FIGHTER? Regardless of whether it is fighting type or not, it’s ANOTHER fire starter become a fighter, and to be honest, that idea is stale. VERY stale.

    • Pharap

      I would never have been pleased, whatever generation it appeared in.

      Litten ruined forever.

      I have no issue with fighting type, the bipedal I wouldn’t have had issue with if the design were right, but ignoring those, I still hate the design.

    • Cosimo

      I don’t hate it at all… It’s a very cool design and if it’s Fire/Dark it’ll be the best starter ever.

    • I actually like it alot

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Same, it’s really grown on me.

    • Gamer Dragon07

      Heck yes,I am quite content with Litten’s final evo,I wasn’t too surprised when I first saw the final evo leaks.I do know that people will be hating because of appearance and the possibility of becoming a fighting,that’s just sad.Pokemon is pokemon,Litten becoming a bigger cat is too generic and is too predictable so Game Freak has to create something people least expect.I don’t hate any pokemon Game Freak create,sure some may be ugly in appearance but that’s like real animals,sure inanimate objects are not as appealing as mythical or real life animals.But at the end of the day,it’s pokemon,it’s not the end of the world people.I’m sorry for the rant,but I do get tired for all the hate on certain pokemons just because they’re not what you guys expected them to become.
      #Litten for the win *waves Team Litten flag* 😀

    • towelgirl21

      I love it! Roided-out Lucha Tony!

  • TheReece25

    I love how they started designing for a 3D world.. I can Easily see all of these Starters in Pokken Tournament. . I’m still confused how Popplio3 fights tho

    • Ultron

      It probably fights best in water. Doesn’t look like it could move much on land. It’ll probably be pretty slow.

    • Fairy

      With loooooooooooooooooove

      Probably bubbles and its voice though, along with hydrokinesis and possibly Fairy powers

      • Ithsme

        It favors attack over sp. attack.

        • Fairy

          Really? Where did it say that? Because that’s a hella odd design choice

          • Ithsme

            GameXplain remembered from what they played

          • Fairy

            But the E3 footage suggests otherwise

  • Haxford

    Question Time
    Where would you live if you lived in the Pokémon Universe?
    I’d want to live in Castelia City, just because I love big cities as I’ve lived all my life in one.

    • MewMew

      Castelia City is cool 🙂 Fortree for me! it feels like home and one of my favorite places to be

    • Shady

      Lavender town …I would like Ecruteak city more ……I wish I can visit distortion world too.

    • TheNintendoChip

      Oooh that’s a hard one! I think maybe Canalave City or Lilycove City.
      Aspertia City is also pretty cool

    • Pokemania88

      Probably either Undella town or viridian city

    • Fairy

      Probably Laverre but moving from Alola, as soon as my Fairy team was ready Valerie would be facing a coûp for the Laverre Gym :p

      In all seriousness though, it has a nice atmosphere and looks beautiful

    • Pharap

      Top choice would be Rustboro because it’s got some nice grassy areas nearby and Devon Corp would be a good place to work/visit.
      Maybe Verdanturf because it’s nice and calm.
      I’d consider Floaroma if it weren’t for the ugly wind turbines nearby.

      Not sure about other places, I’m sure there will be places in Alola I’d like, but greeting people with ‘alola’ would get old really fast.

      • Ultron

        Wind turbines aren’t ugly >:I

        • Pharap

          You’re right, they’re hideous blotches on the landscape.
          All those beautiful unspoilt fields ruined by those giant white eyesores.

          • Ultron

            Well, they’re sustainable so I’d rather have that than strip mining or fracking :^) Clean energy obvi isn’t going to be perfect but if the biggest complain is “it’s ugly” then you’re doing something right.

          • Pharap

            I’d rather have hydroelectric, nicely hidden inside a dam and it can be adapted to solve power surge issues. Plus tidal can be hidden neatly and they can filter out almost all of the plankton and stuff that might have otherwise been adversely affected.

            And there’s recently been some leaps forward in nuclear research that are begining to look like nuclear could become much cleaner. I can’t remember the details but it involved diamonds.

    • Probably either Castelia City or Ecruteak. Hehe, kinda funny actually. A city full of development and a city of tradition

    • Prince Fae

      Ecruteak City 100%. I will always be a Johto guy and its just such a gorgeous place

    • Pharap

      Was the reference to the BBC programme Question Time intentional? *vaguely thinks you might be from Britain*

    • Ithsme

      Hearthome

  • Shady

    Totem pokemon looks very competitive. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rADvOOpsSAM

    • EarthenWarrior

      well it seems both Pikipek and Crabrawler learn Rock Smash
      also crabrawler can be found very very early

      • Pharap

        How are you sure it can be found early?

        • EarthenWarrior

          well it’s level 10

          • Pharap

            Oh right, didn’t watch the video all the way. Fair enough.

      • Shady

        When I watch Crabrawler first trailer while he sweeping Cresselia by knock-off …I thought for sure this pkmn will stand alone ….but now it’s not have an evolution it’s an earlier too.

  • FleurNyaa

    I am really confused. Does this make a new 3ds obsolete. I still have my original pearl pink 3DS and was planning on buying a new one when these games come out does this mean I shouldn’t buy a new one and wait for this. #BlondeMoments.

    • Ultron

      I don’t think it makes the 3DS obsolete, but it’ll be interesting to see what they’re going to do with it..Honestly if they just dropped support for the 3DS that would really suck for kids who can’t afford an expensive console just for the handheld.

      • FleurNyaa

        Well see I have a very limited array of games I have any interest in playing. This seems to just continue my trend this past year of buying every system currently on the market for 1-3 games per system. Excluding the PS4 which I bought to play with my fiance. However I feel like this is kind of sucky I guess for lack of a better word coming to mind at the moment. Also its just not coloured to my taste either. xC I guess four hundred isn’t as bad as twenty two hundred for a computer for just the sims 3. </3

    • Pharap

      I think it depends on what you depend to do with it.

      I haven’t bought a new 3DS game in months but I still use my 3DS nearly every day to look stuff up on the internet and I also play some of the free-to-play pay-to-win-quicker games regularly.

  • Claus H. Luíz
    • FleurNyaa

      Where is Wicke?

      • Claus H. Luíz

        She’s busy babysitting Timmy Turner.

        • FleurNyaa

          This is going to be the like maze runner and Wicke really stands for wicked isn’t it?

          • Claus H. Luíz

            Oh, no. It’s that Wicke is pronounced similarly to Vicky, which is Timmy Turner’s babysitter’s name.

          • EarthenWarrior

            who is voiced by Grey DeLisle now known as Grey Griffin

          • Claus H. Luíz

            Who the hell name’s their child Grey, though?

          • Pharap

            It’s not her real name.

          • EarthenWarrior

            i think its Erin

          • Pharap

            Born as Erin Grey Van Oosbree
            It’s Grey Griffin as of her third marriage.

          • EarthenWarrior

            does it matter?

    • Prince Fae

      You didn’t put the spoiler tag ;-;

      • Claus H. Luíz

        …Oh! Edited. Sowee.

    • Pharap

      Seen it, discounted it.

    • Ultron

      I don’t think the ones for the main character, scientist man, hau, or gladion work at all. For the scientist, it actually appears to be feminine because it’s wearing a dress. Not all that close to a labcoat

      • EarthenWarrior

        Actually people highly spectate that gladion is Absorption’s counterpart with his values of power reflecting UB-02A’s nature

        • Ultron

          but the point of the UB’s is that they take on your appearance. All the others do. I’m guessing there’s some buff character that hasn’t been revealed.

          • EarthenWarrior

            since when did they start body snatching i’m telling you its Gladion = Absorption
            the color scheme
            the power emphasis
            also the spikes on his coat perfectly match the spikes on UB-02A’s shoulders

          • Ultron

            well if you look at the other ones that are obviously inspired by them. But I’m with Pharap, the black one is closer to Gladion

    • TheNintendoChip

      It doesn’t make sense that the male playable character has a corresponding UB and not the female one.
      If Hala has one, why don’t any of the other Kahunas?

    • Prince Fae

      This mostly matches up, with the exception of a few, the main character won’t be an ultra beast because that would make you one too which would make the whole mystery behind it redundant. You would already know. I also don’t think the skinny green goggled guy or Hau match up all that well. Guzma though is a dead ringer

    • I wish Wicke had an Ultra Beast. It would probably be an adorable puppy though because she is too pure and perfect

      • FleurNyaa

        When she turns out to be the one actually spearheading the illegal research and experimentation of humans and Pokemon alike. omg it makes sense Wicke is Xehanort.

        • No way she is going to be the innocent one who got caught up in shady AF business just wanting to help pokemon

          • FleurNyaa

            It’s always the cute and innocent looking ones.

          • Sorry but this face

            can’t hurt anything

          • FleurNyaa

            Nope, googling female Pokemon characters is a no-no, I can never unsee what I just saw.

          • Pharap

            I did the same thing in a vain attempt to find artwork of her being evil, but all I got was rule 34.

          • FleurNyaa

            It was disturbing.

          • Pharap

            I was expecting it and it was still disconcerting.

          • FleurNyaa

            When Lopunny is your favorite Pokemon and it ends up being a reference to Playboy.

          • I think the reference to playboy is actually kind of funny

          • FleurNyaa

            I just always thought it was chic with the fur around its arms being like fur coat cuffs.

          • EarthenWarrior

            Rule 34 NO EXCEPTIONS

          • FleurNyaa

            I don’t necessarily understand but okay. : D

          • Pharap
          • EarthenWarrior

            because since the dawn of man, whatever the sun castith it’s divine gaze, man has had one dream
            to get his rocks off

    • Cosimo

      It doesn’t make sense. Why would one Kahuna be based of one of the Ultra Beasts and not the other ones? And, this assumes your playing the male character. What if you play the female antagonist? It doesn’t quiet add up…

    • joker901

      I agree on UB1-2-4-6-7-8. I’m not 100% sure about hau but defenitly the male character is not a UB. Remember that we have not seen all the characters from this gen, so maybe it’s a new one.

    • Pharap

      Not that I believe in this, but clearly Gladion is better suited to the carbon thing currently assigned to the player.

      If this theory is correct I think it’s possible we might find out who the muscular character matching UB02A is on the 23rd.

    • Ben Rhodes

      I’m not convinced anyone out of Skull or Aether has a counterpart, therefore let me offer up alternative solutions https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7ebf5756a5ffc95e6ccaa06d0bc4ce667306d4ffa357f87c18b2ca458cca986a.png

    • joker901

      Well, Archer is the most liked but with opposing feelings cause a few hate it, Mermaid is pretty much loved or neutral but not hated, Wrestler is hated with a few who likes or are neutral to it. Is this a good resume?

      • Pharap

        (I almost regret not choosing ‘hate’ for the mermaid.)

        The tiger is currently most hated and the archer is most loved.

        But it still needs more votes, it’s not quite representative yet.

            I discuss life through the computer.

            Seriously though, Zelda is a right of passage, it’s like having never seen a Star Wars, James Bond or Disney film.

          • FleurNyaa

            I spent 2200 dollars on a gaming computer with best on the market parts for sims 3

          • Pharap

            Yikes, that’s more than I spent on mine back along. What sort of ‘best’ are we talking?

            Prepare to have your wallet consumed:
            http://store.steampowered.com/

          • FleurNyaa

            The newest everything but since I have no clue about computers besides pushing the big button turns it on. I want to update the psu its not strong enough. But i legitimately have electrocuted myself before on lamp chords and toms hardware laughed at me when i asked a question. xC

          • TheHipsterRowlet

            I- That’s something I would do. Seriously though, I love the Sims. I hope you enjoyed playing it on that computer 😀

        • Pharap

          Obvious solution to one of those is remove all children from the building 😀
          (By any means necessary *hides weapon* :D)

        Bill Bailey is awesome I loved him in black books

    • Michael A. Lozoya

      Also the meme used the same side controller for the Top Right and Bottom Left of image so it could be a reason why it’s a bit confusing.

    • TheHipsterRowlet
  • Fairy

    Guys I’ve came up with a new theme for my Sun and Moon Teams and I’m really excited about it! Greek Dieties! (And luckily it literally allows me to keep the same six I posted earlier for Moon who’re the ones I’m really excited for)

    Spoilers for datamine

    Popplio3-Aphrodite
    Tsareena-Persephone
    Salandit2-Eris
    Bewear-Hera
    Oricorio-Athena
    Ninetales-Artemis

    Litten3-Ares
    Rowlet3-Apollo
    Vikavolt-Zeus
    Wishiwashi-Poseidon
    Palossand-Hades
    Ribombee-Eros

    • Ithsme

      Ooh that’s cool! Small nitpick, I’ve heard that Artemis is more associated with the bow than Apollo.

      • FleurNyaa

        She is, he is more associated with healing, medicine, foresight, and music. xP

      • Fairy

        Rowlet3 fits better in the God side IMO because I couldn’t really find another Apollo Pokémon whereas I felt Ninetales was a good pick due to Artemis being the goddess of the hunt (foxes are commonly hunted animals) as well as her association with the moon (the moon has connections to ice in various media and Fairy has that Moonblast/light connection) :p

        • Ithsme

          Oh, I didn’t even notice the male/female God split.

          • Fairy

            Yeah, part of me wanted to continue that feminine masculine split because it contributed to itself so well.

            I’m also going to have a starterless third run to cover the four Olympians I missed (plus Hestia) and to have a ‘mixed gender’ run.

          • FleurNyaa

            Fun fact Hestia once was an Olympian but gave up her spot to Dionyssus.

          • Fairy

            Yeah, that’s why I really want to include her, as well as the fact she and Hades are siblings to Zeus, Demeter, Hera, and Poseidon who I already had covered 😀

            Fun fact: The centerpieces of each team are meant to be Popplio3 and Litten3 due to the gods they’re named after fitting so well with the fem/masc theme

          • FleurNyaa

            Ooh the implications of having both Aphrodite’s husband Hephaestus and her adulterous lover Ares on the same team. #Salacious.~

          • Fairy

            Greek Dieties were like he original Keeping up with the kardashians :p

          • FleurNyaa

            Plus Deliverance all rolled into one.

          • Fairy

            And Game of Thrones tossed in there too :p

          • FleurNyaa

            I’ve never seen that.

          • Fairy

            Either, but I do know it has a lot of:

            -Drama
            -Violence
            -War
            -Adultery
            -Sex
            -Incest

            All the basics of Greek Mythology XD

    March is already the month my wallet dies again

    • Ithsme

      I’ve been saving up for a while, hopefully my brother doesn’t try to mooch off me like with the Wii U.
      He payed 5 dollars of the Wii U and now claims it was 50/50.

      Minor rant: While I payed a large majority of the Wii U other than what he chipped in, my dad payed for 200 dollars of his PS4 and isn’t even making him pay it back. -_-

      • WoahMama EastGovnah

        i dont go half with anybody because they always make a excuse last minute

  • Pharap

    GUYS HALP!!
    @fleurnyaa:disqus has never played a Zelda game.
    I can feel the world crumbling!

    • Shady

      That’s not a big deal.

    • WoahMama EastGovnah

      its not a big deal to me.

      • Pharap

        O _ O You’re dead to me.

    • Ultron

      That’s a shame.

      • Shady

        No shame in playing no game.

        • Ultron

          It’s a classic series, with one of the greatest soundtracks of all time. Seems like a shame to me.

          • Shady

            I tried to play one of them on DS (emulator) but I didn’t like it at all.

          • Pharap

            Which one?

          • Shady

            It called Legend of Zelda – Spirit Tracks.

          • Oh god no that one sucks. The DS games (Ok my opinion, some like them) are not very good. You should try Wind Waker or Ocarina of Time

          • Pharap

            Sucks is a bit harsh, but it’s definately not something to rope a beginner in.

          • Ooops yeah you’re right. Sorry! I don’t like them though, I don’t think they are good starting games just due to the (imo) frustrating controls. That’s all I mean

          • Pharap

            Yeah. They weren’t as good as they could have been, but Spirit Tracks had a really good soundtrack if nothing else. They just made a mistake with the train gimmick. Zelda is better when it focuses on story instead of gimmicks.

          • Ithsme

            Try a console one

          • Ultron

            That’s basically like playing a pokemon spinoff game and thinking it’s comparable to the main series.

          • Pharap

            Spirit Tracks was indeed a bit of a spinoff.

            Try to get Ocarina Of Time 3D for 3DS, easily one of the best games of the series.

            If you’ve got a Wii or Gamecube, try to go for Wind Waker or Twilight Princess.

          • Ultron

            *Easily one of the best games of all time

          • Ultron

            You have to play Ocarina of Time.

    • They should try Wind Waker. A bit easier and totally stunning. Link Between Worlds is a good mobile alternative

      • WoahMama EastGovnah

        breathe of the wild is a good mobile alternative starting in march 😉

        • Or if you prefer a more at home experience, try Breath of the Wild

          • WoahMama EastGovnah

            if u need a good game to sit on the throne with, try breathe of the wild

          • If you need to escape the mafia and want a bit of zelda, you should check out Breath of the Wild!

            Nintendo Switch coming to a store near you!

          • Pharap

            If you like the good old Zelda magic revamped with a bit of pseudo-scifi and a lot of free-roaming exploring.

            Buresu obu za waiarudo!

      • Pharap

        ‘mobile’ makes me think of phones ; n ;
        ‘handheld’ is better 😀

    • FleurNyaa

      I am bad at games. My fiance carried me through tom clancies the division. As is such with most games I got stuck in the tutorial room of one of my brother’s games for an hour and couldn’t find the door out so he took the controller from me and said never again.

  • Claus H. Luíz
    • WoahMama EastGovnah

      why is there park ball? isn’t that pal park only

      • Fairy

        It’s probably for Pokémon who were already caught with it and their offspring

        • Prince Fae

          park balls don’t carry over

          • Fairy

            Really? Huh.

          • Claus H. Luíz

            Well, then… Wonder what they’ll be doing in Sun & Moon.
            New Pal Park-like feature?

          • WoahMama EastGovnah

            why we already have bank

          • Prince Fae

            probably, not unless they make them an actual ball, which tbh id love a yellow ball

          • WoahMama EastGovnah

            it works like a master ball tho. its just yellow

          • Prince Fae

            they could make it a regular ball though, I like to customize my pokemon in certain poke balls so a yellow one would be awesome

          • WoahMama EastGovnah

            we had seals in gen 4 lol

          • Prince Fae

            no ~~~ I didn’t like seals, they were glitchy and didn’t let you box your pokemon, just certain balls for certain pokemon, premier, love and heal balls being my most used for my fairy teams

          • Ithsme

            O o O

          • Prince Fae

            hey if they fixed them then cool

          • WoahMama EastGovnah

            they can fix that

          • Ithsme

            Yes! YES! BRING BACK SEAL
            CAPSULES!!

          • Ultron

            I bet the park balls will be for the pokemon from the pokepelago that choose to join you.

      • Claus H. Luíz

        No idea. Maybe in case you bring a Pokémon over from another game that’s captured in one.

    • Fairy

      If the apricorns weren’t back I’d be yawning

      But the apricorns are there so hopefully we have those Poké Balls back 😮

      • Claus H. Luíz

        Wait, are the Apricorns actually back??
        Cause, please lord! I love Pokéball diversity and variety!

    • Prince Fae

      IF THIS ISNT REAL I WILL END A HOE!!!!

    • Although it is absolutely beautiful soaring through the Hoenn skies, there is no reason to keep it when Fly is replaced by PokeRide. Just slower. I will miss it though

          • Claus H. Luíz

            I always here of it, yet I’ve never watched Dr. Who.
            Is it really all that great? Cause I might need a new show to watch once I’ve caught up to the latest 7 episodes of Once Upon a Time.

          • Prince Fae

            imo torchwood was better but still sub-par but to each their own

          • Pharap

            Torchwood was meh. It got better after they stopped being hooked on sex. Nobody will ever let them live down the ‘sex gas’ episode.

          • Pharap

            It used to be, recent years have been a bit sketchier, we’re hoping things will pick up after Moffat (head writer) leaves.

            Everything with David Tennant as the 10th Doctor is worth a watch. 11 was good for the first year and gradually got worse. 12 could have been good but Moffat dragged the world into darkness and let them get away with silly things like the moon being a dragon egg.

            Once Upon a Time doesn’t air in Britain as far as I’m aware 😛

          • Claus H. Luíz

            I might just give it a chance.
            You can watch Once Upon a Time online here: http://www.couch-tuner.ag/watch-once-upon-a-time-online-str/

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Heaven Sent and Hell Bent are the best episodes of the 12th(13th) Doctor so far, and are great episodes overall.
            Once Upon a Time has aired on channel 5, not sure if that’s still the case as I’ve not watched it much at all.

          • WoahMama EastGovnah

            diamond and pearl had amity park? that seemed to be a test for Heartgold and soulsilver why not just make it the whole sinnoh region in the remake?

          • Quit whining. They removed benches. You have no right to complain

          • Claus H. Luíz

            I want them, too. Whine with me.

          • *pouts and takes a seat on a bench*

          • WoahMama EastGovnah

            BUT YOU CAN’T DO THAT IN SUN AND MOON

          • IM SITTING ANYWAYS!!!!!!

    • WoahMama EastGovnah

      Johto poke balls is probably what the johto tent

      • Ithsme

        Then what are the actual apricorns for?

        • WoahMama EastGovnah

          maybe you can earn them and u can make the poke balls through the tent

          • Claus H. Luíz

            Holy Mew! What if the Festival Plaza allows us to actually make our own Apricorn balls? I’d be sooo happy with that.

          • Prince Fae

            Like we could combine two apricorns to make new balls

          • Claus H. Luíz

            Yes! Crafting would be nice.

    • TCRowlet

      I’m pretty sure the item data is always there. Doesn’t mean it’ll be used.

      • WoahMama EastGovnah

        ORAS didnt have them as item data only textures

        • TCRowlet

          Interesting. I mean I hope they are back, but we’ll see. The fact the Park Ball and Sport Ball is there tho makes me question it.

          • WoahMama EastGovnah

            my blaziken in oras isnt in a park ball and I put in gen 4 through the Pal Park

          • TCRowlet

            That’s what I’m saying, it doesn’t carry over, but it’s still in the data. Park Ball was just a catching minigame for transfer from Gen 3.

          • WoahMama EastGovnah

            DIAMOND AND PEARL REMAKE CONFIRMED?

  • Nintendalek42

    Am I the only person that’s actually kinda really dissapointed that sitting hasn’t returned (at least according to the demo)? It honestly kinda kills the game’s vibe of extreme immersion compared to past gens, because for all the fancy graphics and character proportions, it’s always gonna feel like a step backwards to just bump into chairs, beds and benches…

    • Ithsme

      No, everyone goes nuts for sitting lol.
      It was an alright feature I used once for the kicks but honestly IMO it was pointless, I don’t mind it being gone if it means better graphics (somehow).

      • Nintendalek42

        Yeah it’s definitely not that important, but it’s just another niggle that game freak clearly could have solved if they put a little more productive effort into their games :/ . It’s just annoying when innocuous features that make the game feel more lifelike get removed, especially when they’re as basic as sitting…

        • Ithsme

          I would’ve much rather them focus on good features, and it seems promising and they’ve said in an interview they wanted to add good post game features for longevity! (Frontier pls

          • Nintendalek42

            Yeah, I’d love for that to be true, but I’m going to stay pessimistic as to us getting a battle frontier. We already got screwed over pokémon wise, so I’m not going to expect miracles, just the usual decent stuff

    • Ultron

      No, sitting is an odd exclusion, but I’m more bummed over no soaring. It was just so good.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Charizard Pokéride might offer it too though, in some form.

        • Ultron

          That’s what I thought, but based on the interview I doubt it 🙁

    • Pharap

      Sitting, watching my character also sit, staring back at me…

    • TCRowlet

      Sitting was an amazing realistic feature and GameFreak is always removing the best features ;~;

      • Ithsme

        The most pointless features are the ones we miss the most. . .

        Nope I miss BF a ton more

        • TCRowlet

          I miss Kalos 🙁

          • Ithsme

            I miss the most bland region in all of Pokemon too. . .

          • TCRowlet

            Kanto?

    • FleurNyaa

      My fairy godmother finally answered my prayers its a tiara <3

    • TCRowlet

      Those are all item data from Gen 6. They always seem to carry it over to my knowledge.
      Pendant = Wally
      Glasses = Maxie
      Anchor = Archie
      Stickpin = Steven
      Tiara = Lisia
      Anklet = Zinnia

      • Ultron

        Maybe they’re all in the game..?

        • TCRowlet

          Or just in the data. Or for returning characters. Who knows. But as customizable options? I highly doubt it. That’ll just be our Z-Ring.

          • FleurNyaa

            Well at least I still have an actual tiara, oh well.

          • Ultron

            Maybe they’re back because of….the PWT

        Th…that’s not what I meant.

        But seriously why is this exciting? Or is it just sarcasm?

        • Pharap

          It means we know what the other places are. It’s exciting for me.

          • Ithsme

            What do you mean what they are? It just says “mystery zone” and “faraway place”. Doesn’t exactly narrow it down. Unless you mean we get to travel more places in the demo?

          • Pharap

            They’re vague enough to be intriguing.

    • EarthenWarrior

      my mega holster is one of three items
      Mega Hat: the keystone is in the band of a cowboy hat with various pokemon teeth
      Mega Claw: my iconic Ursaring Claw necklace has my keystone wedged in
      Mega Belt: My big phat Marowak skull Belt Buckle has the Keystone in its right eye

      • FleurNyaa

        That seems a little morbid.

        • EarthenWarrior

          ….you know who you’re talking to right?

    More small tidbits:
    https://mobile.twitter.com/PokeLoot/status/789234539029815296
    Town map images for each island. Nothing too huge, but now we know where it seems we can go on the islands. Plus it’s cool to look at.

    • Ithsme

      Didn’t work. Hold on

    • Ithsme
      • FleurNyaa

        Am i the only one who thinks based on the maps the towns are small especially the one with the skyscrapers along the beach which are only on one side or how close together the cities look to one another.

        • Ithsme

          Likely bigger in game

            I saw hawaii five o and realized there were skyscrapers.

          • Prince Fae

            well then

          • FleurNyaa

            People always think I am stupid because I am oblivious. As adore said and I posted earlier heaven wouldn’t have me because I am all about me.

          • Pharap

            Ignorance is bliss ¯_(ツ)_/¯
            *glues front door shut*

          • Prince Fae

            I don’t think you’re stupid. but you’re quoting a drag queen??? I never pinned you for someone that likes that, learn something new everyday

          • FleurNyaa

            I don’t necessarily like drag queens but I do know who she is because the song I love u was the description of my last relationship before my current fiance.

          • Pharap

            The truth is much sadder.

            Fun fact: only 10% of Hawaii’s population is native 😀

          • FleurNyaa

            It has the highest concentration of asian americans of all states, districts, countries, and territories outside of Asia itself.

          • Pharap

            Yup.
            Life is also very expensive there, a lot of the beaches are overrun with tourism and sustaining a job is extra hard.

          • FleurNyaa

            Their jobs also pay more though.

          • Pharap

            Depends where in the world you live to compare it to 😛

      • Ithsme

        Akala goes back a ton further than I thought lol

      • TCRowlet

        If you look closely, you can see that Kalos isn’t there

        • Ithsme

          Really? Point it out to me, the images are kinda blurry.

        • Ithsme

          To be fair neither are the post game islands/the small island under Poni/the aether paradise.

          • Ithsme

            Why do I keep calling it that? xD I mean aether PARADISE

          • TCRowlet

            So you’re telling me there is hope? And I think the small island is Pokepelago.

          • Ithsme

            Not the one under Poni, we’ve seen it in trailers. Also I don’t think we can go to pokepelago, that’d be super odd.
            Trainer: “Oh, hey there Pokemon I caught once and never used. We should hang out sometime!”
            *slowly backs away*

          • TCRowlet

            Oops sorry I thought you meant the tiny island on the artistic map with the single tree xD

          • Pharap

            Aether Heathen? Muahaha

    • Ithsme

      Also I wonder why Poni is so blurry. I know it means nothing but still

    • Pharap

      Soo tiny.

  • Shady

    Spoiler (same Ithsme subject) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OHYmaMtxuOI

    • WoahMama EastGovnah

      I didn’t know you can get ur starter there!!!!!!! IM SPOILED AND CANCELLING MY PRE ORDER

    • Ithsme

      Sorry guys, I just have to.
      ——-
      For those who didn’t see earlier, GameXplain said they found multiple new Pokemon in the first two hours of the game, and the only new Pokemon other than evolutions is late MeleMele. Furthering my point that the dex is incomplete.

      Woo, gotta take a breather (a typer? Lol)

      • EarthenWarrior

        ….they could’ve been alolan geodude and diglett

        • Ithsme

          Geodude isn’t in the list of the first island

          • EarthenWarrior

            says who

          • Ithsme

            Scroll up a bit

          • EarthenWarrior

            and who says i’ll believe him

          • Ithsme

            Nobody, I’m just going off of what we’re told.

        • FleurNyaa

          When you realize geodude is based on a geode so on the inside he is all crystal and sparkly~

          • EarthenWarrior

            its actually based more on a pet rock

          • FleurNyaa

            xP Crystal

      • Nintendalek42

        Well, there’s that thing in Lillie’s bag… Not gonna say anymore than that.

    • Pharap

      “meeeleee meeeleee” lol that guy fails

      • Ithsme

        It bothers me for some reason that it is Meleme(le) and not MeleMele. I had to include the parentheses because my phone won’t even let me type the real spelling!

        • Pharap

      The best part is u can catch Crabrawler earlier in this game.

  • Claus H. Luíz
    • Ithsme

    • FleurNyaa

      The best one ever was the face of Tresemme this year.

    • TCRowlet

      Solgaleo and Lunala

    • EarthenWarrior

      that anemone and the spidey

    • Shady

      I hope it’s not cuz I wanna build my mono fire type post game.

    • Ultron

      How are they about to make one of the only fire pokemon an exclusive? This might point to there being more pokemon than were found.

      • Pharap

        Baile Oricorio?

        • Ultron

          Oricorio, Litten, and Salandit would be the only new fire options in Moon or whatever version its not an exclusive in

  • Pharap

    • FleurNyaa

      Akala is where I will be.

      • Pharap

        Any reason your comments keep randomly deleting? I keep missing chances to reply 😛

        • FleurNyaa

          Its the OCD, I feel impulses to delete them.

          • Pharap

            Erm, ok… Why?

          • FleurNyaa

            I honestly do not know. I am the same way on facebook.

          • EarthenWarrior

            so you deleted that whole superpower thing

          • FleurNyaa

            Its not that bad when I was in grade school I would take my tests up to the teachers desk and never take my hands of it and then turn around pick it back up and it went on well into highschool. Also I seem to offend people quite easily especially you so out of self doubt I tend to delete things where I think I could be viewed negatively.

          • Pharap

            Sound more like mild paranoia than the compulsions that come with OCD, but I could be wrong.

          • FleurNyaa

            Well I guess to be fair it is paranoia as a few months ago I was on a similiar site but for anime and people hacked me and got um personal things and then decided it was best made public so.

          • Pharap

            Well, that sucks (to put it lightly).
            Strong passwords are a must these days.

            And this is also why I’ll never go more specific than Southern England and why when I finally get a new phone I’ll be doing my best to disable the GPS.

            I don’t think you’d be at much risk of that on Disqus. Most people here probably wouldn’t even know how to hack your account beyond trying random passwords. And you can always recover your account via email.

          • FleurNyaa

            The only thing I can be positive about is they still talk about me and look at my pictures, I know I am a hot topic.~ <3 That came out wrong sorry

          • Pharap

            The only way to guard pictures is to never post them. I’ve only ever put one photo of myself online and thankfully it’s been lost to the ages.

            At least you’re admired I suppose. If something of me ended up online it would probably end up in a meme or just a truckload of negative comments. 😛

          • FleurNyaa

            I’m just glad it was the one before the breast augmentation.

          • Pharap

            I tried to not jump to the conclusion that is was ‘those’ types of pictures but had a feeling it would be. That’s quite a problem these days, one of the reasons I try to stay away from social media and keep my internet persona separate from my real life where possible.

          • FleurNyaa

            It wasnt that bad, I dont do pictures the way most girls do. I try to do it classy and only mildly suggestive so you couldnt see anything you wouldnt if you have a bra on, just the curvature. Its just I am very sensitive about that kind of stuff. Things just stay at the back of my head and bother me thats all. Also Persian being confirmed with a non fluffy tail broke my heart.

          • Pharap

            Fair enough.

            Tbh I wouldn’t even know how far ‘most girls do’ I literally don’t touch facebook and I only visit tiwtter pages, I don’t actually have an account.

            Yeah, human memory is both a gift and a curse. There’s more than a few memories I’d like erased, that’s for sure.

          • Pharap

            You know you can make your profile private right? So people can only find your comments in the thread and not from your profile?

            But oh well 😛
            *discards comments about Osaka*

          • FleurNyaa

            I would prefer if it were the opposite.

          • Pharap

            Why? Nobody reads old threads anyway.

    • Ithsme

      Without watching the video am I doing it right?

      • Pharap

        Pretty much. *not 100% convinced you didn’t watch the video :P*

        They’re pretty easy though, I think that other guy was an exception XD

  • Ironhide

    pokemon core series will releases nintendo switch???

  • libra

    Who is ready for HD Pokemon Games from GameFreak? Seriously, I love the new marketing, third-party support, and potential of the Nintendo Switch. I want the next Pokemon Games to be on the system to assist Nintendo in pushing units. I’d like a D/P remake in a similar style to S/M, but in HD. What do you all want to see?

    • Pharap

      Depends whether they’re going down the main series, battle revolution or Colusseum/XD route.

      I want something Colusseumy.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Colosseum was the best of them, I’d like to see something similar in future.

        • FleurNyaa

          I got a gamecube on my 9th birthday with Colosseum, and didn’t know you needed memory cards so I got just after Venus and left it running as long as I could but the store was closed. I cried so hard.

        • Pharap

          XD was ok as well, I usually treat them as joint.
          I kind of preferred XD’s “here’s Eevee, choose an evolution” approach though.
          What I really liked are the admins though. Such variety, such character, and the teams weren’t type-locked.

          • Monkeyfuzz

            In fairness I never got to play XD, I’ve seen gameplay though and I prefer the characters of Colosseum. Though I do like being able to choose how Eevee evolves, I thought Umbreon and Espeon were meant to represent that your character was neither/both good (Espeon) and Bad (Umbreon, Dark=Evil in Japanese as I’m sure you know).
            The Admins were great. This was essentially showing a Pokémon Game working well without Gyms.

    • Like BW2, I doubt Gen 7’s followup game is likely still on the 3DS. Gen 8 Switch, then Sinnoh Remake as well on Switch.

      I also wanna see a new Pokemon Battle Revolution, it’s about time!

  • WoahMama EastGovnah

    so if anyone saw heartstone might be coming to Switch, thats one step closer to our overwatch port.

    • FleurNyaa

      I play overwatch

      • WoahMama EastGovnah

        overwatch is amazingly fun

        • FleurNyaa

          I am only good at Mercy Mei D.Va, Symmetra, and Widowmaker

          • MelloMori

            Take pride in being a good sniper.

          • FleurNyaa

            I will because I can’t do anything else lol

      • I’d try overwatch if it had a demo where I can test if my PC can handle it. Is there one?

        • FleurNyaa

          oh no i play on ps4 i cant play shooters or most pc games on pc involving multiplayer outside of lol or smite. I am better with an actual controller,

          • Ah I see. Well my question still stands in case people know if there’s overwatch PC demo I can test with. 🙂

          • MelloMori

            I don’t believe their is, though I’m pretty certain the spec’s for it are easy enough to find for you to see for yourself.

          • I did the specs calculator, and it feels inconclusive. Like my CPU is 85% as good as the best CPU nowadays but my video card is 35% of the best video card… (so… video card is trash?)

            edit: Note I’m on a laptop so there’s no upgrading video card.

            Actually I have an idea. I’ll try PALADINS first. And if that works, then I go buy Overwatch.

          • MelloMori

            yeah that’s a good test. Though if you know for certain what model your Video card is, Overwatch recommends only a 660 GTX. So fairly old parts still really work well for it. I run a 970 on mine and its looks great. And one sat I’ll upgrade to that 1080 beauty. When the’re a bit cheaper.

          • I’m not sure if the laptop nvidia cards follow the numbering hierarchy though, and Street Fighter V PC is kinda unoptimized anyway but makes that video card a bit hot causing slowdown. But we’ll see. I can download Paladins in the weekend.

          • MelloMori

            They do follow traditional numbering for the most part. They might be a bit weaker, but their generally comparable. So if you have anything that’s 700 series(three years old or so), you’ll be more then fine.

          • FleurNyaa

            I have a 980 and i thought I had a heating problem installed monitors never goes above 70 c, however I do have slight card crashes that I can alt ctrl del out off which only happens on smite every so often no other game, and sims 3 every thirty minutes gives me a kernel power 43 error but i dont know how to install parts i want a new psu but my ex is being coy about it, and if I have to uninstall and reinstall the other components to do the psu I have decided I am simply buying another computer with a 1080.

      • EarthenWarrior

        i would play overwatch, but Wow is my truer calling

        • WoahMama EastGovnah

          once u go overwatch u dont go back

          • EarthenWarrior

            i played it, and i’m playing wow this very second
            i’m one bar away from hitting 109 on my Shaman

        • FleurNyaa

          Tyrande Whisperwind is my wow identity.

    • Pharap

      I keep getting confused between Hearthstone (the popular card game) and Stonehearth (and indie voxel survival RTS game I support)

  • ShinyXatu

    Just as I had hoped, the Switch has me hyped for Nintendo, and games in general, once again. Next year is a fresh start. By extension I’m also more hyped for Sun and Moon than I have ever been in the past. I’ve spent so long waiting for this day and it was worth it.

    • WoahMama EastGovnah

      I hope we get a direct soon 😀

      • ShinyXatu

        We have an Animal Crossing Direct in a few weeks. While it might just be for New Leaf DLC, we could easily get a teaser for Animal Crossing Switch! Because of this Direct I don’t think we’ll get the Switch Direct until December.

        • WoahMama EastGovnah

          End of the year Switch Direct or Start of the new year direct im guessing

          • ShinyXatu

            Yeah, December or January it is. But I just don’t care anymore. I couldn’t be happier with the reveal.

        • EarthenWarrior

          So i was thinking
          let me set the story, a few weeks ago my and my brother went to best buy and they were letting costumers test the new Playstation VR helmet and i liked it
          then it got me’a’thinking, what if the next Animal crossing was VR
          you would have a first person view of your animal crossing town, actually interact with townsfolk, much more interactive fishing and bug collecting and you take customizing your home to a whole new perspective ]
          frankly this sounds all amazing but my brother made one crucial point
          He thinks that the more…enthusiastic players would live inside their helmets and that’s a problem

          • FleurNyaa

            3d gives me migraines and siezures I will happily opt out of vr. Not to mention my intense fear of zombies and horror genre in general.

          • EarthenWarrior

            i totally get you, i truly and honestly think i might becoming epileptic, i can’t stand bright lights, strobes, and flashes anymore

            going blind is my all time biggest fear, if i can’t see definitely…game over man…. can’t game, can’t read write or draw….just game over

          • Ithsme

            Yeah, no migrains or siezures for me, but I simply dislike it VR in general, it gives me mild headaches and really disorients me.

          • ShinyXatu

            I don’t think the Switch will have VR, at least not until a few years into its life cycle. But we’re definitely getting a new mainline Animal Crossing game soon, no doubt about it. The features of the Switch are just perfect for the series. I just hope we don’t have to wait until 2018.

        • Prince Fae

          WAIT WHAT??? when??? I must have forgotten about this

          • Animal Crossing Direct? November 2

          • Prince Fae

            YAY, thanks

        • Ultron

          If there’s not a new main animal crossing I’m done

    • Pharap

      Can’t find the joke I wanted to respond with ; n ;
      First world problems.

  • WoahMama EastGovnah

    so we have
    Skyrim Remasterd
    NBA 2K17??
    Just Dance (ew)
    3D Mario
    Mario kart 9/8.5
    Splatoon 2/1.5
    Breathe of the wild
    Sonic 2017
    NX year will look pretty good for it already. and seeing all the devs on board it will be amazing most likely

    • ShinyXatu

      I’m guessing Mario will be revealed at E3 2017 and released in the holidays with Sonic. I have a feeling that the Switch’s first E3 will be historic.

      • WoahMama EastGovnah

        Super Smash Bros 4 Switch edition with more playable characters and stages, and we all know many people will buy it

        • ShinyXatu

          I’m positive I will play it much more than the Wii U and 3DS versions combined. That’s because I always felt conflicted about playing one over the other. Now there is no guilt about whether I spend more time on home console or handheld.

          • WoahMama EastGovnah

            we all know ice climbers and/or wolf will come with it hands down, thats all you gotta show for people to buy it lol

        • Ithsme

          All these ports a kinda depressing me; it’d much rather they focus their effort on new things rather than just adding a few things onto and same game that I now have to buy twice. One or two is fine, but I don’t want them to port ALL the good Wii U games to either the 3ds or the Switch, it’s sorta making me feel there was no point in buying the Wii U.

          • WoahMama EastGovnah

            Smash bros is a shoo in for a port tho. MK,Splatoon and smash being the biggest titles i can see being the only 3 and we know 2 already. smash seems more likely now

          • Ithsme

            But Mario Maker and YWW are getting 3DS ports now, and I feel like as a Wii U owner there was no point; I could’ve experienced the best games without buying a Wii U.

            I do want a Xenoblade X port though.

          • ShinyXatu

            This is a console that they will be supporting for a long time. I’m sure they’re getting Wii U remasters out of the door within the first few years and then focusing on completely new experiences.

          • Ithsme

            I don’t want for my experiences for the first few years to be mostly ports though, there’s no real incentive to buy the console.

      • I think Switch could show up on something like CES 2017 first (January).

    • I think there’s enough time to release NBA 2K17 port. People will still get it coz mobile and HD.

    • Pokemania88

      And a confirmed pokemon game coming.

    • Pokemania88

      And I am SO HYPED for NBA 2k17. Those graphics are gonna be sweeet plus you can play it on the GO!!!!!!!!

    • Prince Fae

      And a dragon Quest Game

  • Pharap
    • Ithsme

      So that’s why so many pokemon are humanoid this generation…

    • All of the waifus this gen is getting a bit too much

      • Shady

        Can we cinsider Morelull evo as a waifu?

        • …. Yeah, why not!?

          • Shady

            Untle now my team is full with a beasts it need some or maybe one female to balance it….I don’t believe in waifu though.

          • What is your team?

          • Shady

            Litten3
            Wimpod evo
            Mudsdale
            Crabrawler evo
            Morelull evo
            Silvally

            on the Pc; Oranguru and Whishiwashi for doubles, Midnight Lycanroc, Sensu Style.

          • Morelull evo -> Tsareena or Lurantis?

          • Shady

            For me yes but all grass of this gen r pretty gorgeous….so I will not depend on my emotion I will pick the one whose better in battle.

          • I reccomend Ninetails. A bit more feminine and it can give you some Fairy Ice coverage. Plus you need a special attacker

          • Shady

            I don’t need it I have my ice type in addition I prefer not depend on alolan I need try completely new one that’s wat I did in every new game but Morelull looks like special attacker……but this good point I am lake of special attacker I will study that.

        • EarthenWarrior

          never that thing looks like the creepy alien from the Simpsons
          you know the one

          • Shady

            I said this many several time I like creepy stuff.

    • EarthenWarrior

      i mean…. hmmmmm…..i am a guy who wants a gal with a big rear….but i think even i wouldn’t marry a fruit monster

    • WoahMama EastGovnah

      when shiggy tells us to stop it, i always laugh

  • Pharap

    Welp it’s *looks at clock* 3:26am… ooops
    I’m calling it a night.
    *vanishes into the abyss once more*

  • ShinyXatu

    I’m rather confident that we will never get another dedicated Nintendo handheld, certainly not for the next decade or two. Hold your 3DS’s close, because they could be the end of an era.

    • Your Landlord

      Aren’t you confident in a lot of stuff?

      • ShinyXatu

        I’m confident in this.

    • WoahMama EastGovnah

      I mean whats left for the 3ds nintendo wise in 2017
      Mario sports
      Pikmin
      Yoshi wooly world port

      • ShinyXatu

        There’s nothing left for it beyond 2017, I’m pretty sure about that. But I’m personally content with that.

        • WoahMama EastGovnah

          those are the only 3 games we know for 2017 in NA

          • ShinyXatu

            It’s possible that we could get Pokemon games on the 3DS until 2018, seeing as Black 2 and White 2 were released in 2012 on the DS. At the same time I think they’re going to transition to the Switch much quicker than they did with the 3DS.

          • WoahMama EastGovnah

            knowing gamefreak they already starting working on the pokemon game for the switch probably a year ago

    • Ithsme

      This concerns me. Will I have to buy two whole consoles for my brother and I to each have our own handheld part? There should be a way that people don’t have to share, nintendo has always taken family gaming as a priority, so they better not snub families with siblings who don’t get along well.

      • Definitely.

        However if you are just playing the TV, then I bet someone could just take off the sides, and the other be on the control pad.

      • ShinyXatu

        Yes you do, which I why I think it will be a relatively inexpensive console.

        • Ithsme

          Hopefully, if it’s not my brother say’s he’ll just chip and use mine, and I know that won’t go over well. -_-

    • Green

      That looks like Kurzesagt or however you spell it.

  • ShinyXatu

    Apparently it’s been confirmed that Nintendo won’t reveal any more information in 2016. I’m completely fine with this because at least they aren’t keeping us in the dark anymore. Get ready for one heck of a January Direct/press event/both.

    If you haven’t seen the Dex leaks, don’t look.
    I drew more random crap. This one involves Pyukumuku! (I’ll go over it on Sketchbook and post that tomorrow)

  • Green

    Proof that we haven’t seen every Pokémon in the Dex leak: WHERE ARE THE FOSSILS?

    • But there are gens with no fossils… I don’t think that’s conclusive…

      • Green

        But that was Johto and Johto deserved so much more. It was just an extension of Kanto.

    • Ithsme

      That’s not proof at all, but if you want proof, I think anyone here can tell you by now I’m your guy. 😉

      • Ithsme

        Here you go, a preliminary list of evidence (there are 3 more I found today which I haven’t updating this list with yet:
        1. Ash-Greninja is nowhere to be found in the datamine, meaning it’s stored somewhere else. Before you say “these are pokedex stills, of course it isn’t there”, Mimikyu and Wishwashi’s form changes are in there, so it makes no logical sense to not include Greninja’s form change.
        2. The 6 (counting the two after Mimikyu as one because of form changes) missing models cannot be totems. Firstly, these are pokedex stills, and if totems are just pokemon with an orange aura with no real unique features, they would not have a pokedex still. Secondly, we know of 7 trial captains, and there are only 6 totems here (again counting the two after Mimikyu as one), so even in the highly unlikely event that they are totems, there are STILL missing models here.
        3. This list does not include a pokemon that resembles the strange souvenir, nor does it include a pokemon that resembles the statues on Mahalo trail.
        4. The datamine does not include any stills for Charizard (who we’ve seen in trailers and is a pokeride pokemon) or Horsea (who we’ve also seen in trailers and is on an alolan statue).
        5. GameXplain claims they found MULTIPLE new pokemon in the first two hours of the game, and the leaked pokemon don’t look early game, as most are evolutions and the rest look late game. Remember, this is only the first TWO HOURS, so to find more than 1 new pokemon demonstrates how this can’t be complete.
        6. Marshadow is in the mythical pokemon section, which would mean that Solgaleo and Lunala are lacking a third legendary to the trio.

        • TCRowlet

          3. I’m telling you it’s going to be the red tapu once it closes its mask 🙂 And the statue was only speculated to be a Pokemon, we’ve had plenty of statues in the games that aren’t Pokemon 😛

          • Ithsme

            I was hoping the Tapus would form a huge tiki thing.

          • TCRowlet

            That would be cool xD

          • WoahMama EastGovnah

            “An ornament depicting a Pokémon that is venerated as a protector in some region far from Kalos”

          • Ithsme

            But if it’s not the Ula Ula tapu, then this literally confirms that the dex is complete.

          • TCRowlet

            Look at the red tapu. And look at the strange souvenir. Do you notice how the red tapu has no hands. Look at the nostrils on the strange souvenir. When the red tapu closes its mask, that’s what it’ll look like 😉

        • Prince Fae

          you probably shouldn’t use the totems as an example because they never said that there would be a totem pokemon after each trail captain.

        • joker901

          1) Greninja is not in the regional dex so it’s clear its new form in’t there either.
          2) Totem are in the dex because they are much bigger then normal pokemon, this is why the pokedex may register them as they were forms. No, we have all the totem pokemon in the pokedex cause wishiwashi will not have a totem model: it’s school form is already a totem like pokemon.
          3) The strange souvenir may be a Tapu (the red one) once closed or may not been a real pokemon at all.
          4) Palpitoad was a statue in x/y but was not in the regional pokedex. Charizard may be a post game pokemon to ride or simply rideable pokemon are not registered by the pokedex
          5) They probably have seen Pikipeck evo, alola diglet and alola geodude and graveler.
          6) Gen 2 has no 3rd legend so it’s possible neither gen 7 has one.

          Think what you want but dataminers agree on the fact that this is all what we have.

    • TCRowlet

      It’s Gen 2 all over again, only without the 2nd region.

  • WoahMama EastGovnah

    back up ur bags because gamexplain just posted video stating Nintendo Says No More Switch Details Until 2017

    • We will have to rely on third parties to spill beans on more details then.

        you need to make sure negan is holding a Lucile, that will up his damage output significantly.

          Negan’s a PAB. Carol could solo

          • Exeledus

            she has a new ability that makes her easily influenced by pacifists for no good reason.

      There’s no hope. It could be the best kept secret, but more than likely not. All the hints and teasing, boo!!

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      Is anyone really surprised? Sure it was a possibility in a way, but it was never something that was a shoo in. Honestly I think they can do a a single region just fine and make the game feel solid. There doesn’t really need to be much post game content if the whole story is super jam packed.

      • Dicie

        Right, but I did find it neat to get a response from one of the dataminers themselves 😉

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          Yeah that’s cool of them. I imagine they’re way more open to talking about the mining than legit sites and news press hahaha

      • TCRowlet

        Boooo!!!

        • TheSunnyMonster6893

          Oh boo yourself lol

          • Dicie

            LMAO

          • TCRowlet

            XD

            Couriway Town ;~; All the parallels to Gold and Silver ;~; Zygarde protecting the Kalos ecosystem ;~; I feel betrayed.

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            I think the whole part of the Couriway town train taking you to another region or back to Kalos went away for keeps once we learned that the new region is a set of islands instead of a land locked region. After all how is a train going to get you to and from a set of islands? lol

          • Ultron

            Marine tube from B2W2 with a train in it!!

          • TCRowlet

            This is the same franchise where we rode a dragon into space and crashed through a meteor! But an underwater train is inconceivable meanwhile they already exist!!! God dammit GameFreak!!! xD

          • TCRowlet

            There are trains irl that go underwater 🙁

          • TheSunnyMonster6893

            Not trains that I trust enough to go under entire oceans lol

          • TCRowlet

            Masuda kept his profile image as the Eiffel Tower, and on his blog his profile image is of a bridge in France. I’m reaching here, but UGH. And there could’ve been a post-game island that’s more of a mainland thing with train tracks.

    • Ultron

      Well, looks like Kalos is going down as the worst region in pokemon history. So many questions still left unanswered. So many chambers still left empty.

      • TCRowlet

        I hate GameFreak.

        • Ultron

          Kalos could easily have been a great region.

          • TCRowlet

            And instead it was a hold over for Sun and Moon. Can’t even return to fix the potential it had. Nah, let’s just take Zygarde, and move it over here.

          • Ultron

            Seriously that was so lazy. They couldn’t have fit in a Z in 2015 to actually make the story not awful?

          • TCRowlet

            It’s clear Sun and Moon were always the plan, otherwise why place all the talk of going to a new region next time in XY. And who knows, maybe they actually did have plans to return to Kalos, but the plans fell apart =/

          • Ultron

            I feel like it would’ve been easy to make a Z though, you know? Literally just take X&Y game, change the story slightly, add 1 or 2 more encounters and better dialogue for Team flare, give Malva more to do, a few new locations, more post game stuff, and then work zygarde into the story. Whatever, at least Sun and Moon look great. And they better be.

          • TCRowlet

            Yeah I get what you’re saying. XY really could’ve used a 3rd version, it was so lackluster for all the hype it generated. I hope Sun and Moon will be great. I mean honestly I expect they will be even without Kalos. It’s just I was so hopeful to return to Kalos and finally get a 2 region game again.

          • Ultron

            I feel like we’ll never get another 2 region game ;-; I just hope that at least Alola has some sweet post game islands to explore

          • TCRowlet

            Oh if this wasn’t a 2 region game, no way will it ever happen again. Admittedly, we never really needed a 2 region game before. Hoenn, Sinnoh, and Unova were fine on their own. But this all really built up to being the perfect storm of Sun and Moon being a dual region game. But seeing as they most likely won’t be, it’ll remain a GS thing.

          • Johto has no fossils. It was part of a 2 region game. Alola has no fossils…………………. wishful thinking but hey… and I don’t wanna wait until the inevitable Kalos remake that will happen when I’m old and retired…

          • TCRowlet

            Sun and Moon are alchemic symbols for Gold and Silver
            Solgaleo and Lunala have no trio master just like Ho-Oh and Lugia. Although it can be argued Zygarde is the trio master of both Xerneas/Yveltal and Solgaleo/Lunala.
            Magearna has the Soul Heart Ability.
            Johto had no fossils and neither does Sun and Moon.
            That Ecruteak-looking city on UlaUla Island.

            It annoys me xD Probably looking too much into things all along. Yet GameFreak has a history of hinting at things..

      • KGNeos

        Lol! But you’re right, the Kalos region felt bland and GF not making a sequel to X and Y left these games with confusion and many unexplored features. At least we have Zygarde’s complete form and the other ones in Sun and Moon.

        • Ultron

          Yeah, I’m looking forward to whatever they have planned for Zygarde. It could be a cool legendary and actually have a good story.

      • Ben Rhodes

        Maybe it’s so when we get to X/Y remakes there won’t be as many people dissapointed that they changed a lot because all they’d have to do is add to it.

  • Exeledus

    I’m going to seriously doubt the switch is backwards compatible with the wii u, but I wonder if I could pop in a 3ds cartridge?

    • Pokemania88

      That might be likely.

      • Exeledus

        smash bros for 3ds…. for switch! pokemon on the big screen, ocarina of time or majoras mask. gotta wonder how the touch screen would work?

        • Pokemania88

          I think that would be cool. I mean, Nintendo makes a lot of new consoles compatible with old ones, I just don’t know if they would do both the wii u and 3ds since it is a hybrid.

          I would certainly hope so.

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      I imagine the best we can hope for in that regard is them porting over games from the Wii U via new retail versions or making Wii U games in some capacity on the VC lol

  • Shady

    This trailer didn’t show if we can connect this council on the laptop…..they should aware of that.

  • joker901

    If there’s no pokemon league, how do we train our pokemon? You think maybe the captains can be matched in postgame with them having an actual team? I also remember the chinese leaker said that “an actual elite four” would have appeared sometimes after the main story…

    • TheSunnyMonster6893

      I imagine they won’t get rid of the traditional “league” ever. I would be willing to bet that some sort of league takes its place in the Alola region after you beat the game. I can’t imagine it being all that extensive, but we’ll have some sort of E4. I would say at the very least the Kahunas are rechallenge.

    • Ben Rhodes

      I imagine theres a central figure. So:
      Trials
      4 Kahunas
      1 Central Figure Champion Type, probably a King/Queen.
      In Hawaiian History Kahunas serve a King, so that seems possible.

  • Exeledus

    well, its been a crazy day. gotta go get extremely angry at people for not knowing how to play splatoon. goodnight everyone!

    • That’s shooters for you! At least unlike Overwatch we won’t get yelled at. Good luck and good night!

      • Exeledus

        send a request to Exeledusp! we can splat sometime!

        • Sometime perhaps, I no longer live in a place with stable internet, also thanks to time zones I am in the office right now. But perhaps I’ll go send when I get back to my wii u on the weekends.

            Well Siren is Greek/Roman Mythology, so it’s not necessarily English.

      • Close! Pyukumuku was actually Salandit and the last one is Midnight Lycanrock
