Game Informer had an interesting interview with Game Freak’s Junichi Masuda about the history of the Pokémon series and its future. They’ve shared most of what they learned, except for news about the upcoming titles Pokémon Ultra Sun & Pokémon Ultra Moon. Finally they’ve shown us a new feature in the upcoming games, Alola Photo Club!

You:’ll be able to take custom pictures with your Pokémon, both inside and outside the photo studio. As the game progresses, more features will be unlocked for your photos.

What do you think?? Has the recent deluge of news whet your appetite? Personally I think this could be a great way to share your training online via social media!

  • Ithsme?

    Just saw all of the new stuff, and while it’s not perfect, this definitely has me hyped a good deal more than I was before. A bunch of little clips to speculate on? Perfect.

    In that spirit, why is Ryuki standing in Surge’s gym, or a look alike building?

    • Ithsme?

      And wow, the protags look so much younger than in like every other game.

  • KᑌᑭᑭO

    I’m certain that this is a feature that I’m going to use a lot :Y

  • Ithsme?

    While I’m at it, does anyone have a high res version of the new map? They claim to have new areas but the map looks largely unchanged. Maybe they mean giving us access to areas we already should have access to, like the golf course and the lighthouse.

  • Ithsme?

    Sorry for the spam, but I missed the discussion so this is just me going through what you all probably already have. New director, fresh blood could work well.

    Also does the Akala basin look dried out or is it the lighting?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      It is apparently the lighting.

  • Monkeyfuzz

    I think I’ll have a bit of fun with this feature, then quickly grow annoyed at how the photos come out, I’ll struggle due to my perfectionist nature :/ I’ll hopefully get passed it and will probably forget about the whole feature down the line. I think it would be good if it unlocked stuff either in-game or on the Global link like prizes for doing certain amounts or themes.

  • Daedardus

    Did anyone actually bother with the movie thingie in BW2?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I did all the missions and stuff but then didn’t use it again.

    • glauca

      I tinkered with it a little bit. It’s more of a feature to use when your bored.

    • Ultron

      No, but it was nice they actually put content in if you were interested in it. Personally it didn’t appeal to me as much as the PWT

      • PWT pissed me off cause everyone kept beating me in the final round with BS strategies or I never got the gym leader I wanted to face

    • I did the movies were mostly interesting, but some were heart tugging (Everlasting memories)

  • Ultron

    Okay, but why? I’ll probably do it once or twice and then…never again

    • Daedardus

      They had to actually put something new in the games :P.

      • Ultron

        Well I guess it might be cool to have a photo with my Volcarona, but I’d trade that for just being able to walk with it

  • joker90
    • Ultron

      Wrong. If you win, it will slam its head down on you, instantly snapping your neck. If you lose, it also will slam its head down on you, instantly snapping your neck. Confirmed by the director, look it up

  • Dicie

    It’s been quite the day for news! There hasn’t been an awful lot to talk about, but at least we know that Ryuki and Kahili will play a more significant role in the story and gyms are as good as back (maybe even in Kanto, who knows). Maybe these games aren’t the rehashes I expected, and there could be a lot in store. Also, during the trailer, when that Rockruff was following the trainer… walking with Pokemon confirmed??

  • I wish more details dropped, but I’ll definitely enjoy my boy Kommo-o’s new Z-Move + taking 802 (at least/minus variants) photos in the photo club.

    I like the new map, the quick trailer probably has a few things hidden away, but definitely could have used more.
    I guess we’ll definitely get some good info come October’s CoroCoro.

  • Evil-Antho

    I just wanted to point out since no one seems to be mentioning this.
    Since Kahili and Ryuki are more or less minor characters, it<s neat to see them have a more prevalent role. And then there is the whole ''this is an alternate story/alternate dimension'' so I was wondering if we would see any relevant characters having different roles like
    Guzma being a good guy or hell Team Skull being more there (I love team Skull they are my precious numbskulls) or the Aether foundation being more messed or hell the rumors were Gladion is a goodie-2-shoes in the Aether foundation or WHY THE HELL NOT SKULL LILLIE lol. (yo Nebby get in da bag. It's ya bag Nebby)

    But no one is mentioning this clear shot of Kukui in his normal self. I was just wondering what people thought of that, since Kukui IS an important character. (goodbye oh dreams of Professor Guzma *sniff* )

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    I’m considering whether I want to watch the Sophocles episode of the anime…..I really couldn’t care less about him…….Is it even worth watching or should I just skip it and wait for the Gladion episode? Lol

    • I think its worth it (then again I like this season more than XY so what do I know :p)

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        I love this season, but Sophocles is just so awful lol

  • Golden_Flygon

    What a day… Not one, but 3 different types of USUM news we got (even if we didn’t get too much, I’m more than satisfied with Kommo-O getting a Z-Move).

  • Dicie

    So upon further inspection of the new Alola map, only SOME of the construction sites have been utilized as far as I can tell. The new circus-like buildings are present in Hau’oli City and Konikoni City. The lot in Heahea City has also been used, but there is a dark building present there instead. Malie City also has a harnessed lot, but there is an orange-roofed building there. Royal Avenue also seems to have some structure built in a nearby area.

    Thus far, that’s all I’ve been able to uncover about the empty lots. Let’s say we do get gyms… there must be other areas that the map has not shown yet. Assuming Kahili and Mina get their own trials, I think I know which two could potentially be gone. First of all, it’s possible that Lana’s trial could be retired, given as the waterfalls in the northern part of the map have dried out. Across the entire new map, there are dried out areas–the Altar of the Sunne/Moon, a little strip right near the golf course, and even a significant chunk of Hau’oli City’s coast. Another possibility is Kiawe’s trial, as the volcanoes that once had steam pumping out of them now appear to be dormant. This is a stretch considering we’re just looking at minor details on a map, but it’s still important to point out.

    It still doesn’t seem that we can access the golf course, lighthouse, or power plant, but it’s too soon to say for sure. Assuming trials are back, Kahili’s is likely on the golf course somewhere and perhaps Molayne could have his own thing going on at the power plant?

    The region itself has considerably less water and some of the color schemes of the buildings have changed. There are also a few new beach areas in Hau’oli and Heahea, for example. I’ve attached two images of both maps to see if any of you can find other changes. Let me know!
    https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/9122cd4bdbcc382fab295638b8e096df8700d9a4408d73e134096dd9f775edd7.jpg https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8fa62fe45b319055dafc556d330fcf16b74c7f10b2fc73066371c34458194a93.jpg

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Oh hey crap, where’d you find this higher res image of the new map art? The only version I found earlier was one that was not so great when zoomed in on. I think the new map is hiding some areas to be honest. We still have no idea where that new forest/cave area is and I honestly have no idea where I’d place the Pikachu farm lol

      • Dicie

        Found one on a 4chan threat lmao, and yeah another island wouldn’t be the craziest thing in the world. I’d actually love that tbh

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Cool. I’d be willing to bet the cloud on the bottom are hiding something. They were way smaller and more transparent in the original map. Now they’re thicker and GF love using clouds to hide shit lol

    • Butter Geek

      they didn’t dry out, it’s the lighting

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        I mean the Malie garden definitely does have some dried out areas. You can’t blame lighting on that kind of a difference. Especially since the other half of the garden is clearly full of water. I will agree with you tho that the lighting does trick the eye a bit. It’s hard to tell in some areas and in others it’s easy. We’ll just have to wait and see.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    So while today wasn’t exactly what we thought it’d be how are people feeling? Better, the same, less excited, confused? I for one am a tiny bit more optimistic about everything. I’m still not 100% on the idea of playing through SM but with a few differences here and there, but honestly it almost looks like there will be some pretty major things going on. I wonder what they’ll show off next. Hopefully we’ll get some new Alolan forms. Lycanroc was a good start, but since it’s so specific to a single Rockruff that’s an event it kind of ruins it. I’d like to see some new forms in which I can go out in the wild and find for myself rather than it just being somehting given to me lol

    • Sunny

      I am feeling better both because I finished all of my work so I now have free time for my two days of summer and because of the news drops today. They may have been small, but worthwhile. Also there is supposedly another merchandise with a question mark due to be revealed on Aug. 31st. So we should be expecting a news drop before that time. Thus, I am confident that-even though it has been a slow start-the train is moving.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Yeah I’m sure going forward we’ll start getting even more news. During BW2’s pre release we didn’t start getting substantial news until April. That was only 2 month before June when BW2 were released. So if we start getting stuff next month that’ll be on course as far as scheduling goes. I just hope we start to get more info on new forms found in the wild and maybe some official art for some characters that may have not gotten it uploaded since last year. Kahili and Ryuki are two such characters. They have art, but it’s only in the design sheets they gave out with the guides. they never uploaded them with clean ones.

  • Sunny

    Also Gamexplain has their analysis video up if anyone is interested in watching that.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Oh geez I’m sure it’s another video where they pick apart footage that is more or less self explanatory, but then make up shit that may or may not happen. And then they say “But we’ll have to wait and see if that actually happens haha” Oh well I’ll prolly watch it anyway……..lol

  • Golden_Flygon

    I’m 90% sure this has been said already, but I found something else on Bulbapedia that could point to the place that Ryuki’s at is Lt. Surge’s gym:
    “Ryuki is a musician who has traveled to Alola from another region beyond the sea in order to spread his fame.”
    Maybe that region is Kanto..?

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      I’d love ti if we were able to go to Kanto( even just a a part of it) but I’m skeptical. I know it can be done, but I get the feeling GF don’t want to do that kind of thing anymore. They’ve only ever done it once and it was when Iwata was somewhat involved. I doubt they have the drive enough to push something like that out on what would be more or less a filler set of games while they make the Switch game. I’d be more willing to bet that if it really is supposed to be a gym it’ll be more of a representation of Surges gym. Like a replica or something. I saw someone (maybe here or somewhere else) say that maybe Po Town could be changed into a Kanto styled town that would basically be like an amusement park based on Kanto. It wouldn’t really be an amusement park, but it would be the kind of thing where they have replicas of gyms and other landmarks from Kanto there.

      • Golden_Flygon

        Maybe… But it does have the exact same layout as Kanto’s electric gym (even the windows are oddly the same) so I’m not entirely too sure.

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Again tho it could be a replica gym I won’t argue it doesn’t look like the Vermilion gym, but It’s hard to believe they’ll put that much effort in a secondary game.

          • Golden_Flygon

            Yeah. Guess we’ll just have to see.

    • Ryuki is a musician? What about him makes him look like a musician?

      • Golden_Flygon

        I mean… he has a guitar in a case in his concept art…

    • Butter Geek

      Not really a chance. If it will happen, I’ll be really shocked

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      that’s redonkulous lol

    • EarthenWarrior

      By all laws of science you should’ve been incinerated to dust

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Here’s an interesting tidbit. apparently an early version of the building that Ryuki was shown in was found in SM’s coding. It’s stripped down and doesn’t have the same coloring, but it’s definitely the same building only with some slight changes.

  • EarthenWarrior

    https://youtu.be/yM8i1aW0hWE
    So this is where everyone went

  • Tick

    does anyone here play pokken? Is the pokken controller worth the money?

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      I played it for about a week after it came out and decided I hated the controls and stopped. A real shame tho. I love fighting games and if it was controlled more like Tekken from which it is basically based off of, then it could have been great.

  • Golden_Flygon

    I just noticed this in the trailer: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/f66e82c34ceba24fcf24ced525630ba0785ac9d85e65c1a39776853c27fbcf0b.jpg
    Like I dunno if it’s Necrozma, the symbol split on U Solgaleo and U Lunala’s heads, or something else entirely.

    • Golden_Flygon

      Nevermind GameExplain talked about it lol

  • Doctor Aphra

    Kommo-o is basically Dio but sadly it didn’t have ZAWARUDO.

  • Ithsme?

    I have a bit of a stretch claim to make here, but I a few pixels make me think the league is already established by the beginning of USUM.
    Check out this pic: https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/896e0a6fd5b20e046eb2b363c3c45d957f8a5e1fca72dd2c926a5c591ead072a.png

    Notice the little arch near the peak? That wasn’t there on the SM map, despite being there in game after Kukui established the league. The fact that it’s already there probably means the league is already there.

    • Dicie

      Yeah the league is definitely already there.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Also lower on the mountain there’s a weird area that appears to be an additional spot for the victory road? Maybe Victory road will be more fleshed out in these games.

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Poni Canyon felt like victory road, not Lanakila.

  • Make Salmon Run 24/7 you cowards

    • Ithsme?

      I’m 100% sure it will be enventually, it’s just a intrest strategy as it is. Just like amiibo, if you can’t have it all the time, it just makes people want it more.

      • I just need to get ability chunks ffs

        • Ithsme?

          Alternatively, you could just wipe the gear and then drink Crusty’s fried drinks.

          • Yeah but then I wont be guaranteed the abilities I need

        • Ithsme?

          Speaking of Splatoon, have you tried League Battle? I just unlocked it a few days ago, and the servers are even worse than Turf War. I get an error half the time, and when I don’t, it takes like five minutes to get into a game.

  • EarthenWarrior

    Bored had sudden inspiration

    Darklaw (placeholder name don’t bitch open for revision)
    Underling Pkm
    Dark/Rock
    Tough Claws/Infiltrator HA: Intimidate
    A monstrous insect demonic like Pokemon with pitch black skin and a cluster of thin black and blue needles, it has two mantis like arms equipped with very long hooked claws, it’s mouth has three tri folding fangs that rotate, and bright gleaming orange crystals for eyes, and lastly two short hooked claws on its feet
    “This dangerous Pokemon lives deep underground in search of precious minerals to feed on, it’s powerful claws and burrow through the hardest of bedrock”

    “The more minerals it eats the harder it’s body becomes, it loves to hunt rock Pokemon like Roggenrolla and Carbink”

    • Monkeyfuzz

      Why isn’t it Bug? Should learn Metal Claw and Acid Spray to help it eat its’ prey.

      • EarthenWarrior

        Because it merely has a exoskeleton like body but anatomically it is more of a earth elemental abet a dangerous flayer that eats minerals and uses them to strengthen its stone body

      • EarthenWarrior

        And as for attacks some include

        Hone Claws
        Dig
        Screech
        Slash
        Fury Cutter
        Fury Swipes
        Metal Claw
        I guess Acid Spray early like level 1 attacks
        Night Slash
        Mean Look
        Leech Life
        Stealth Rock
        Automize

        And its signature attack Deep Cut which is a rock type move that slashes the opponent with long stone claws that grant it a significant chance for Defence to drop

        • Monkeyfuzz

          It should probably get Bite and maybe Pursuit for more Dark level ups, Bite being a starting move.

    I hope this feature gives out ribbons. I really eally want more ribbons for my babies!

  • Im actually really liking the classic squiffer

    • EarthenWarrior

      Why is it that I always seem to go to bed right around the time everyone is playing
      Tomorrow I demand we all splat together

    • Tick

      Im thinking about giving it a try, but I don’t use chargers that often.

    • Tick

      What weapon do you usually use?

      • Dualies and Inkbrush. I was messing around with the Squiffer since it just came out but I’m trying the umbrella now

        • Tick

          Ah, I like to use the sploosh-o-matic

          • EarthenWarrior

            Krak-On Roller, all day everyday

          • Tick

            whats its sub and special?

          • EarthenWarrior

            Beakon and Baller (Baller is borderline useless no defense and limited mobility)

          • I really dont understand how the umbrella works but I love how my character looks with it so I’ll keep trying

          • Tick

            yeah i love the victory animation for it

          • EarthenWarrior

            It’s like a shotgun with a shield
            You pump out rounds and hold it to put up a shield and if you hold it long enough it pops out

    • Ithsme?

      Coming from a Splatterscope main, I’m not a huge fan so far. You don’t realize how much the scope matters until you’ve used it nonstop for a week and then lose it. And I keep throwing the point sensor thinking that it’ll be a bomb. ._.

    In my fangame, gym leaders’ teams are diffrent (harder) than in normal games. The 1s and 2nd leaders have 3 mons, 3rd and 4th have 4 mons, 5th and 6th have 5 and the last two have a full team. I’d like you to tell me if the last two teams don’t sound too hard:
    7th:
    Polecante (regional rodent, pure fighting type)
    Hawlucha
    Pangoro
    Machamp
    Blaziken
    Superine (pretty strong, Fighting/Fairy type)

    8th:

    Slaking
    Furnibeast (very strong, pure normal)

      Sounds good where can I play this game?

      • I believe these are still concepts atm, so it hasn’t been made yet.

        • Link Joker

          Oh lol. Is it Being made soon?

          • I’m not sure

          • Butter Geek

            yup

    • Desu-er Seraph

      Sounds pretty easy

    • Haxford

      1 – the teams could use more of your regional pokemon
      2 – normal is way too easy for the 8th gym, especially when only 1 of them has a second typing

      if you really want normal, than i’d suggest:

      Drampa
      Pidgeot
      Snorlax
      Bewear
      Slaking
      Furnibeast

      or maybe use Pyroar/Heliolisk/another fakemon

  • zess

    When do you guys think they’ll bring back contest or something similar? Im thinking it’ll be in the Sinnoh remakes.

    • Fedex

      They won’t unless it’s Sinnoh/Hoenn based games

      • zess

        I figured as much. 🙁 but it would be nice to have it return in a new generation.

        • Fedex

          I know but GF don’t seem to unless it’s the same region they introduced/used it.

    • Ultron

      I hope in Sinnoh remakes they do more to revamp contests than Hoenn did. I want them to be more exciting and less luck based.

  • I’ve said this before, but this could’ve been a really cool crossover. Not to say that SMT and Fire Emblem isn’t cool, but I personally would’ve been more interested in a Fire Emblem and Pokemon.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Huh…..I didn’t know that. To be honest tho I have no idea how they’d have done that. How would that have even worked? I mean at least you could change the Fire Emblem characters into Persona, but I’m not sure how Fire Emblem would have interacted with Pokemon…….

      • I don’t really have an idea on how, but I feel they could’ve found a way. Maybe that was why they switched Pokemon to Shin Megami Tensei.

    • Juan

      Pokémon Conquest? 🤔

  • Monkeyfuzz

    @disqus_B13dRd0KEP:disqus you still want a Jangmo-O? If yes, what Ball, Nature, Ability and Gender and do you want it hatched or in egg?

    • Fedex

      Bulletproof, Male if possible, Modest and a Pokeball is fine and you can give it hatched that’s fine too.
      Thanks!

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Is it OK in a Heavy Ball? I already have that in daycare breeding.

        • Fedex

          Yeah that’s fine too!

          • Monkeyfuzz

            Is 31/Pretty Good/31/31/31/31 IVs OK?

          • Fedex

            Yeah perfect :]

          • Fedex

            Also you seem to be quite a breeder so makes me wonder do you have any perfect or even close to perfect IV Dittos??

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I do, but these are done with a Male 6IV ‘mon bred for me. The Dittos I have were RNG’d from gen 5 for me, I bred and traded a very large amount for them.

        • UnburdenedLegume

          Do you have Soundproof ones too?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            I can breed Soundproof yeah.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Its no rush but if you can breed me one of those too, that’d be much appreciated 🙂

          • Monkeyfuzz

            OK, same ball etc?

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Yes

          • Monkeyfuzz

            OK, I got one with the same IV spread.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    @Monkeyfuzz:disqus if you have time, you can give me that Jangmo-o now? Modest and Heavy ball right?

          • Deerlia

            thanks~

          • Monkeyfuzz

            NP 🙂

  • Ultron

    There better be more guy hairstyles in USUM. Honestly it was pretty unacceptable how many they gave the females in comparison.

    • Monkeyfuzz

      They always do, they think girls want more and the boys aren’t bothered. Problem is if you’re trying to make it represent you more that thinking doesn’t work and is kinda sexist.

      • Ultron

        Yeah exactly, it’s dumb. In Animal Crossing I can wear girl/boy hair and clothes..GF is low key homophobic though. We especially know this due to the different dialogue between the girl and boy trainers with Lillie.

        • Daedardus

          Yeah, Japan has a big problem with gender diversity and sexual orientation. Animal Crossing is maybe the only Nintendo franchise that encourages breaking of gender norms.

          • Ultron

            I would’ve thought that Japan was a pretty socially progressive in that regard. It’s disappointing for sure, but I’m not confident it would be any different if made by a Western dev.

          • Daedardus

            Haha, good joke. Japan is one of the most socially conservative countries that have a high degree of industrialisation.

    • Daedardus

      Girls/women*. Use of female as a noun really is derogatory when speaking about humans.

      I just hope we can crossdress/take on other gender’s hairstyles.

      • Ultron

        Well I felt female was appropriate considering GF does not allow trainers to be transgender/wear other gendered clothing :/

        • Daedardus

          Are you a native speaker? Because female is more used in the context of an adjective. For example, male/female bathroom, male/female clothing, male/female hairstyle. But whenever you would say ‘guys’ or ‘boys’ you say ‘girls’ and whenever you refer to men you refer to women. Referring to women as females is actually comparing them to some lowly animal you don’t care about. 😉

          • Ultron

            That’s interesting, I guess I never thought of it like that.

    • Let us cross dress ffs. I actually wanted to use some of the guy hairstyles on my female character.

      More hairstyles all around. Like 5 more for girls and 15 more for the boys because having only 4 is insane

      • Desu-er Seraph

        Yeeesh
        I just want something giga spiky and anime-y
        Is that all that much to ask for?

      • I guess that could work. Not my cup of tea, tbh

    • Meh they have my hairstyle so either way I can be happy

      They should have hair dye though like Miitopia

      • Also a clothes dying system that isn’t fucking stupid

        • True cause if you dye clothes can you buy more white clothes after of the same kind?

  • EarthenWarrior
  • Tick

    anyone want a code for a salazzle holding a focus sash?

    • Monkeyfuzz

      What region?

      • Tick

        North America

        • Monkeyfuzz

          Oh, I don’t think it’ll work for me then.

          • Tick

            what country are you in?

          • Monkeyfuzz

            UK

          • Tick

            yeah it wont rip

    • Tick

      Offer is done, someone else took it. Ill try to get another sometime soon.

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Watching the Gladion episode of the anime in English. Gladions voice is actually not half bad. I don’t mind it at all actually lol

  • Monkeyfuzz

    @UnburdenedLegume:disqus and @disqus_B13dRd0KEP:disqus I need to go out now, I’ll be back in 5 hours or so, or tomorrow, if you want your Jangmo-O’s then.

    • Fedex

      Ok no worries

  • Desu-er Seraph

    Those of you who call swampert “Pert” are gross

    • Golden_Flygon

      Mega Pert doesn’t even sound conformtable at all…

      • Desu-er Seraph

        Agreed

    • Chaos

      I guess it gives Mega (Shar)Pedo a run for it’s money. :/

      • Desu-er Seraph

        But even than you can pronounce that as Pay-doh
        Pert sounds like a word for shit

    • Butter Geek

      WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN MY PERT?!

    • Didn’t Get Its Own Game Govnah

      Guzma they probably will fuck up

      • Butter Geek

        What if now he’s Branch Chief Guzma?

        • Didn’t Get Its Own Game Govnah

          You come up with the strangest ideas

          • Butter Geek

            That’s called a genius (jk, I’m far from a genius)

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      You should’ve put the whole OST 😛

    • ShinyXatu

      It’s very difficult to improve Vast Poni Canyon. But if they can, then the world is truly a magical place.

    • Fedex

      I love the trial themes, totem battle etc

    • Shady

      E4 is the best for me but where is it?

  • Didn’t Get Its Own Game Govnah

    so you guys think theres a 5th island or no

    • Tick

      im gonna say probably not.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      There are a lot of clouds in the bottom left corner in the map that may be hinting at a new island, I know it’s far fetched but the fact that there are way more clouds in USUM map that in the SM maps makes me suspicious

    • Butter Geek

      I hope, but I’m not sure if that could happen

  • Butter Geek

    don’t believe that we’lll visit kanto n USUM… but Wicke mentioned someone fusing with a pokemon like lusamine in kanto

    • … Bill?

      • Sunny

        Bill Nye the science guy!!

        • Butter Geek

          BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL BILL

  • Desu-er Seraph

    Theory time: USUM wasn’t meant to be announced back than, they just released it along with Pokken in that trailer to prevent backlash thinking it would suffice. It explains why the trailer was so short and how the games weren’t touched on. The trailer we got yesterday was originally intended to be our first announcement of the game

    • Hmm sounds plausible enough

      • Desu-er Seraph

        That’s my opinion

    • Fedex

      Not sure about that.
      Remember GF plan way ahead.
      For example they have two teams so one is focusing on say ORAS whilst the other one on SM. They’re developing games and planning way before we know it.

      • Desu-er Seraph

        True
        I mean I just feel like the announcement was meant to be later

    • Shady

      Hmmmm…..that’s y they didn’t show the cover early??

  • Desu-er Seraph

    Don’t kill me for this
    (I feel like Earthen might love this idea)
    I feel like if Vast Poni gets a remix, it should sound similar to the original but it should have rattling/clanging noises that can be heard here and there to represent the Kommo-o that live there

    • I could roll for that

      • Desu-er Seraph

        :3

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Yeah….

      That’s actually a very creative idea! :0

      • Desu-er Seraph

        😀
        I kinda hear a variant of cowbell or tambourine or maraca to make this noise

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Good, these instruments are fun

          • Desu-er Seraph

            Agreed, *insert needs more cowbell here*

  • Desu-er Seraph

    I just want to be a smurf hoopa god who plays yu-gi-oh to murder people, is that so much to ask?

  • Just got gold everything except for healing in Overwatch

    I might just be able to climb back up in ranking!

    ALSO PLAY OF THE GAME

    • Desu-er Seraph

      In prud of you
      No one needs healers ;3
      I mean, I get plenty of gold healing when I play roadhog
      *laughing and crying*

      • ALSO I WON THE GAME FIR US AS TORB WTF

        • Desu-er Seraph

          TOIRBYOIRD

          • Today’s goona be a good day

    Expect a shitton of Gigantic spam out of me now, this game has caught me in its grasp https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/af149f04605950563d1ccf6723d5c93da11f285e467618c32e3fac9ba9f7baa2.jpg

  • joker90

    Let me see:
    – When Gen 5 was announced everyone thought that Unova was somehow connected in its western part with another regiorn. Never happened.
    – When Gen 6 was announced everyone thought that there was a southern Kalos under the clouds. Never happened.
    – When Oras were announced, everyone thought we ould have returned to Kalos. Never happened.
    . When Usum were announced everyone thought we would have returned to Kanto. Never happened.
    – What region do you think we would return in Gen 8 even if it does not happen as always?

    • Desu-er Seraph

      Giga Sinnoh

    • Fedex

      Maybe in a future gen 8 or 9 game.
      It’s not impossible at all with GF they like to throw curve balls.
      Like how Alola has four Islands, they could possibly make a game with 2 region both being decent size but together making a full game experience.
      Time will tell I guess.

  • Desu-er Seraph

    TBH I would have called Mega Evolutions Giga Evolutions

    • Why?

      • Desu-er Seraph

        I just like how it sounds

        • Sunny

          Not possible. They are saving Giga Evolutions for Gen 8.

          Ampharos becomes Mega Ampharos

          Trainer: This isn’t even our final form!

          Proceeds to use Giga Evolution

          Mega Ampharos becomes Giga Mega Ampharos. His hair is now blue.

          • Desu-er Seraph

            YES

          • So, he’s Super Saiyan Blue now?

          • Sunny

            But of course. What else could Giga Evolution lead to.

    • Fedex

      For me personally mega sounds just about right!

  • Fedex

    So I’m currently on Ula’Ula Island and I think Alola is just a fantastic region. Beautiful, diverse, unique and mysterious.
    Hoenn was always no.1 for me but I think Alola takes it atm depending on how Ula’Ula plays out and the last Island.

    Where does Alola rank for you guys..
    AND, which is your favourite Alolan Island?

    • Desu-er Seraph

      Alola region wise is certainly my favorite but Unova still has my favorite games

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      In 4th after Hoenn, Unova and Johto

      And my favourite island is the biggest which I have forgotten the name of 😛

      • Fedex

        Haha I wonder 😛
        We have similar tastes
        Hoenn and Unova are my 2 favourite regions. Johto is awesome too!

        • KᑌᑭᑭO

          Yeah, these two regions are so good, specially Hoenn by having a lot of variety and by not being as linear as the others

    • Akala for sure

      • Also

        Sinnoh
        Unova
        Johto
        Alola

        But they are close

        • Fedex

          No surprises as to which is first on your list :]

          • It’s too good

          • Fedex

            What is it about Sinnoh that you lile so much?? What makes it stand out for you??

          • I’ll answer in a few minutes gotta finish this game 😛

          • Fedex

            Okay then I’ll wait in suspense for a lengthy essay on why Star likes Sinnoh! 😛

      • Fedex

        Akala is awesome, might be my fav too depending on Ula and how the 4th plays out for me.
        I like how Akala has an element feel to it..water, grass and fire…

    • Golden_Flygon

      Melemele
      Edit: Oh and I rank it 4th

    • Sunny

      Ula’Ula
      It’s 1st!

    • Alola is tied with Sinnoh as my favorite. My favorite island is probably Melemele.

    So what are you mofos up to?
    I feel like playing OoT but I’m up to the Forest Temple and I’m like ehh

    • Desu-er Seraph

        Hmmmm both those peaked my interest

          • They’re both great

          • Butter Geek

            Yes. All 3 of them. And everyone that disagrees isn’t worthy enough for the amazingness of Inci.

          • Fedex

            Inci is my fav fully evolved Alolan starter by a mile

          • Butter Geek

            These are the right words!

          • I like them all equally cause they all have good designs (Fight me on that people I dare ya) some good types and are all in all imo The next Sinnoh trio (But not as good as that trio)

          • No. Everything about Inci is awful. I can’t understand the love for it

          • Butter Geek

            I can’t understate the hate
            It’s not fire/fighting
            everything about it was made on purpose (the design, the name, the entries etc)
            Its orgin is amazingly complex
            Its quirkyness makes him even better
            The z move is amazing
            and many more
            If you try to see these pros, you’ll understand why I love it so much.

          • – Sonic games were made in purpose doesn’t make them any less bad
            – It’s based on tiger heel. That’s not that complex. If anything it’s the least complex of the 3
            – They never play up the quirkiness so it’s not appealing
            – The Z move is the only good part of inci

          • Butter Geek

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Eo3GDUmepeI I don’t wanna write it
            Planning out a mon makes it better if they do something good with t. you don’t like the design, doesn’t mean it’s bad.
            You’ll see the quirkyness whe he’ll be ash’s
            the z move isn’t “everything”?

          • yeah I saw that video. Every pokemon for the most part has lots of planning and research put behind it. Incineroar isn’t special

            He is insanely unappealing. You took a cat and gave it muscles. I don’t care if its based on Tiger Mask. The idea didn’t work at all. Sure you can say Lopunny is just a bunny with tits but the design works because the design is tied up in a simple and elegant way. Its feminine figure makes since because it’s a bunny and it needs to get around quick. Even better in its mega form

            Inci on the other hand has a tiny head with gigantic hands that are way too big. It shoots fire out of its crotch also. That’s just stupid. Its lower body is really underdesigned compared to the top half and it all comes together to create a disgusting abomination.

            Inci is a bunch of “ok” and just bad ideas without good execution.

          • Butter Geek

            His design is a mix of menancing and ridicolous. Just like wrestlers. He isn’t supposed to be good in a real life fight, just like wrestlers, he is supposed to look that’s way. But if he needs to, he has the muscels to kick a*s. Just like wrestlers.

          • I don’t care how similar it is to wrestlers.

            His design DOESN’T WORK

          • Desu-er Seraph

            Yo Starry, do I need to come in and drop a literal verbal bomb on this shit starter?

          • Do what you must

          • Desu-er Seraph

            I might kill it several times over

          • Butter Geek

            F*ck this sh*t I’m done, your guys’ arguments are invalid, you just don’t like the design and call the mon garbage

          • > Me: analyzes the design to explain why it doesn’t work
            > You: Ok but it’s a wrestler

          • Shady

            Don’t be mean he talk about mix of menancing and ridicolous that’s alone could count characteristic ……ZZzzzzzzz I need go to sleep

          • Ultron

            My Incineroar has been decent in the battles I’ve used him in, so I don’t have many complaints on that end, but the design is still hideous in my eyes.

          • I think the design looks fine, but that’s just me.

          • Ultron

            I like the face, don’t like anything from there down. It would be better if its chest and arms were different, imo

          • Desu-er Seraph

            Are you sure you aren’t just being a stubborn idiot? You won’t even admit the mon has flaws. Hell, even I can admit my favorites have flaws! Marshadow for example would have been much better if its shiny was its default color, bam I did it.
            Instead you’re too busy saying you either like Incineroar or you clearly have an invalid argument.

          • Yeah he has a point like even Weavile has flaws like it’s Fighting weaknesses or the fact they kill innocent Alolan Vulpix

          • Shady

            He is mannish, mean and kinda dumb he looks evil but he’s good inside all these thing make him awesome …I agree his lower body kinda underdesigned but that’s not enough reason to hate it just if follow this stupid bipedal stuff.

          • Really? Primarina is a Siren…

            It’s based on a half women half fish creature that sings sailors to their death

            That’s not very complex

          • Desu-er Seraph

            Incineroar is a fursuit mixed with John Cena ;3

          • And Inci is a wrestler

          • Ultron

            -Sees fighting about the the downfalls of Incineroar and Primarina-

            -Turns toward Decidueye and hugs it for being so flawless-

          • Desu-er Seraph

            ^^this

          • Desu-er Seraph

            Outside of plush form that is

          • Yeah, but I think they both are pretty simple to explain and aren’t complex

            Deci is complex tho I agree there

          • Shady

            This wat humanz about they just gonna hate ….don’t listen to them he’s awesome

          • Cause every one has different opinions and he loves how its a Wrestler and such

            I actually am a fan of it and all of them for that matter

        • Butter Geek

          Incineroar olding an Incinium Z, not as cool, but much more bada*s ********

          • It is most certainly not bad ass. Fam Inci’s signature move is him spinning in a T-Pose

            How more ridiculous can’t you get

          • Butter Geek

            It’s badas*s the same way wrestlers are, especially hells. I wonder if that’s a coincedence, OH WAIT

          • What does this even mean

          • Butter Geek

            he’s planned out in every inch,more than lopunny for certain. just one of the things I love about him

          • Him being planned out well doesn’t make it good and idk why you think it’s more planned out than other Pokémon are

          • Butter Geek

            What is the charactr of Lopunny? What complex orgins are behing it? It’s a playboy bunny? wooow

            Did you just have a root beer float? hahaha

          • Just regular Root Beer

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Should have been a float. Combine all your favs lol

          • I had it at a restaurant, and I didn’t see any floats on the menu

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            ah gotcha lol

  • Ultron

    While Incineroar might be ugly, at least it’s better looking than its shiny aka one of the ugliest things in existence

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    So I bought the first two volumes of the Pokemon Adventure manga. I’ve always wanted to read them, but buying manga is always a drain on the bank and it’s typically easier to just find it online somewhere. That said the Pokemon manga are kind of hard to fin so I figured I’d give it a try in the real deal. I’m most interested in the GSC stuff, but I figured I’d try and read all of RBGY first since it’s a continuous story.

    • The RSE is the best one. Read all of that. They are so amazing. Everything after RSE is trash

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        I may read RSE too. I once found a scanned in version, but I just couldn’t concentrate on it. Maybe if I actually buy the manga in book form I’ll have more discipline

        • If you enjoy RBGY and GSC, read it for sure

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            I kind of really want to. I read manga on the regular anyways so idk why it’s h=taking me so long to get into the Pokemon manga lol

      • Agreed

        Excluding HGSS (because it was actually based on the originals)

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          I’m gonna read HGSS too once I get through all the main stuff. I kind of want to read the ORAS stuff too lol

          • HGSS is awesome and just hinting if you read GSC already
            Rogelio replaces mantine on Golds team

          • Sorry not Rogelio Togepi

      • Armaggedon16

        Except DPPt and BW are the best ones.

        • Maybe they get better over time but from what I read it wasn’t that great

          • Armaggedon16

            Idk till where you read, but bw gets good pretty fast (when white meets N) DPPt takes a bit more time but the Platinum chapter is Amazing.

    • Armaggedon16

      Ayy they’re all awesome. RBGY is actually the weakest one, GSC is awesome, RSE is even better and DPPt and BW are the best ones.

What made P4G so great was the freedom to play anywhere and anytime. I’m still enjoying what I’ve played of it, but need to find the time now.

    Today we take a look to not the sea, but the city, for some hit squid girls single, Ebb and Flow, by Off the Hook.

  • UnburdenedLegume

    I am convinced that this is Kartana’s Ultra Space
    The little orange dot is Kartana, its glowing and moving in the trailer. Kartana is a Grass type, this is a forest with the leaves having a similar shape as Kartana.

    There are no Chinese style forests in SM nor any on the USUM map.
    That one person in the image is probably a Faller. Guzma and Lusamine lived in Ultra Space too, albeit for a short period, but anything’s possible.

    Nihilego’s Ultra Space was a rocky and crystallized cavern, this is a similar layout but obviously forest themed so its Kartana’s, or possible Celesteela but i highly doubt that.

    Given that we have version exclusive UBs, I’d say each game will have 5 of these Ultra Space ”corridors” https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/121344c37c4e375662e689ab11ac3ce6ad60d5ea44b4f2dd4a0d1424337ea580.jpg

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I just hope that these new Ultra Spaces are a little longer and more interesting than the one we got in SM

    • Butter Geek

      There are 2 NPCs like that. Not really makes sense IMO

    • You could be right with this… I kinda like that idea alot as well

    • Didn’t Get Its Own Game Govnah
      • Butter Geek
        • Didn’t Get Its Own Game Govnah

          what else could it be? this Ultra Space could hold humans who were trapped by Kartana

          • Butter Geek

            maybe a short trainer? Inspired by Kartana? the black on its hands don’t match kartana

          • That’s just pixels. This is legit Kartana

      • hmmmm yes i see the resemblance

        • Kimberlyjowens

          After i lost my previous job six months ago, i’ve had luck to find about this superb website that was a life saver… make $85 every hour and get paid at the end of each week …They offer online home-based work. My last month check after working with them for 3 months was $12000… Amazing thing about it was that only requirement for the job is basic typing and reliable internet…
          If this interest you, try it out on following website❋❋❋Read more here……

    • I guess so but I hate the idea of regular human characters just living in ultra space

      • What if they came from their respective world’s tho but they are lost? Like Annabel before she landed here

        • Butter Geek

          -I’m lost…
          -Me too…
          -We should stand on two sides of the road, so a trainer walking through has to battle us!
          -Great idea!

  • Butter Geek

    Ya know what would be the best part about Inci in Smash? He’d get a cool amiibo

    • EarthenWarrior

      My ideas for the Alolan trio were

      Decidueye
      B: Spirit Shackle: Standard Ranged charge you cannot store the shot and release in a different spot but those hit by it will be immobilized for a solid second
      Side: Leaf Blade: a wide multi slashing attack that can be chained together
      Up B: Brave Bird: a fire fox esque propel
      Down B: Sucker Punch: a counter

      Incineroar
      B: Fire Fang: He lunges forward and bites the opponent down
      Side B: Darkest Lariat: he swings and spins forward trapping multiple people in his animation
      Up B: Acrobatics: he performs a leaping somersault bouncing off opponents
      Down B: Bulk Up: he glows red as he flexes causing him to deal more damage and have reduced knock back

      Primarina
      B: Sparkling Aria: sends out a bubble bomb that travels forward and bursts
      Side B: Double-slap: a flurry of open flipper smacks
      Up B: Water Pledge: Surges upward on a column of water
      Down B: Disarming Voice: a short sound wave that disables those struck

      • Butter Geek

        Final smashes would probably be their Z-Moves

      • down B for incineroar is unbalanced. One should trade for the other.
        Maybe slow speed as a side effect?

        • EarthenWarrior

          It’s either you move slower and it lasts only a few shots then you are fatigued and can’t use it after a while

      • and sparkling aria can be stored maybe?

  • Butter Geek

    Wait… I just fought of something… what if in pokemon switch/USUM we get pokemon Amiibo that unlock clothes/hairstyles/accesories? Like in splatoon squids/kids can unlock outfits, here it would be pokemon

    • Nope.jpg

    • Monkeyfuzz

      That falls under paid DLC, Pokemon isn’t realy into that. Pokemon Smash Amiibo are different before you argue that.

    • Who’s “of something” ? Why’d you fight?

      • Butter Geek

        Thought***

  • Photo thing is pretty cool. I saw at one point in the video “Pikachu is surprised!”
    Maybe we can troll our Pokemon?

  • joker90

    Ok. I strongly believe the forest is Kartna Ultra space. Now, considerations about that:

    – If this Ultra space is as big as Nihilego’s GF could have spent its time better building a proper battle frontier. “Our world is huge, other worlds are cave-like size” Wtf?
    – People are seen in the forest. Could this mean that at least we have to fight someone to get UBS? Let’s hope so, at least it’s five minutes longer to play. What pokemon do they use/, only Kartana lives in Kartana’s Ultra Space? Assuming that the “Wha if” dimension of USUM is not that different from SM, maybe it’s wih other dimensions that Gf decided to introduce new Alola Forms?
    – If we have to travel to other dimensions to find UBs maybe UBs never came to our world, maybe all the Lusamina/Llie/Cosmog plot is gone and all is now related to Necrozma? Cause doing an entire plot around UBs menace just to open other portals and risking another invasion is just stupid. Now we become the invaders?

    • This theory was stated earlier in the post.
      I’m sure you thought of this and your own, and I agree, it’s a pretty good idea

      • joker90

        I saw the post about Kartana been found in the forest, then I made my considetations.

        • ah ok.
          But I don’t think we are invading.
          What is more likely is that maybe Kartana brought the character here to show him something, maybe an enemy to fight

      Unless they decide to show something in a Nintendo Direct, which I am guessing will be sometime this week due to the pokken demo, xenoblade and fire emblem not having dates, new arms character coming really soon, lack of new maps in splatoon 2, ect. Im hoping for news in a nintendo direct.

  • Butter Geek

    Just for fun: If there was a pokemon league that we all were a part in, what would be your team? What would be your story? Who would be your partner? What region would you be from (doesn’t have to be the clostest region to your rl country/city)?

    I would be a trainer from Alola named Hubert, that moved there when he was little.
    His starter was a litten
    He caught a pichu before his first trial
    after his first trial he found a Grubbin egg
    Pichu evolved during the water trial
    Litten evolved into Torracat after battling with Totem Salazzle
    Before the grass trial he caught an Alolan Grimer that was stealing his trash
    In Lush Jungle he met an Oranguru that joined him
    He bought a thunder stone for Pikachu (and used it)
    Grubbin finally evolved before fighting Totem Vikavolt
    After the ghost trial he caught a Stufful
    Grimer evolved defending Stufful from a Garbodor
    His Torracat evolved
    He found a Psychium Z when he got lost in the desert, Oranguru helped him find the exit
    Charjabug evolved in Vast Poni Canyon
    He found an Aloraichium Z after beating the last trial
    He decided to fight the international league (where you’d all be)
    He challenged Guzma and won a bugium Z from him and Poisonium Z from Plumeria
    Kukui gave him Incinium Z as a goodbye present
    Stufful evolved before Huberet entered the league
    The final team:
    Inci with Incinium Z (partner)
    AloRaichu with Aloraichium Z
    Vikavolt with Bugium Z
    AloMuk with Poisonium Z

      That’s awesome. I’ve gotten some pretty decent pulls form single packs from Burning Shadows. I usually open up boxes and other stuff for my YouTube Channel, but I’ve taken a few weeks off of that so I can save some money and just focus on real life stuff lol

      After i lost my previous job six months ago, i’ve had luck to find about this superb website that was a life saver… make $85 every hour and get paid at the end of each week …They offer online home-based work. My last month check after working with them for 3 months was $12000… Amazing thing about it was that only requirement for the job is basic typing and reliable internet…
