BE CAREFUL: As with all rumors we treat these as discussion points and not something to based your hopes and dreams on. Do not treat them as fact.

It isn’t a rumor that GameFreak is working on a main series Pokémon game for the Nintendo Switch, but exactly when is a point of contention. Many gamers thought that “Pokémon Stars” (later revealed to be Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon precursor or even just a tech demo) would be the first main game on Nintendo’s new console after gaming journalists erroneously reported on it last year. One year later and nothing concrete has been announced, but that could change soon.

A Reddit poster with a history of correctly leaking gaming news posted, DasVergeben, recently posted a new topic about some of 2018’s plans from Nintendo. Relevant to Pokémon fans is the fact that GameFreak is under pressure to release Generation VIII next year for the Switch. That means if all goes according to plan we could see the first “console” main series game within 12 months!

Do you think it’s too soon off the release of Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon or would you prefer GameFreak to keep generations shorter than they have in the past?

  • Honestly the most important part of this rumor is Mother 3 on Switch

    • Alex Veens

      and the metroid prime 4 trailer with actual gameplay

  • Sunniera

    They are “under pressure”. Did the rumor explicitly say who is pressuring them?

    • PJ

      Nintendo

      • See that’s the part that I have doubts about. Nintendo isn’t about rushing games and never really has been. I suppose this could be different under a new leader.

        Though I can kinda understand it from a business point of view because Pokémon would be the thing that really ropes in the handheld audience

        • Sunniera

          Sentiments shared.

        • PJ

          Well I like to think of Nintendo as a gracious and big-hearted company, but at the end of the day they’re trying to turn a profit for shareholders. BotW and Odyssey were the huge releases expected for Switch and now that they’re out there’s a need to continue the momentum with other big names.

          • Aaditya Rauniyar

            Animal crossing, Smash bros, Yokai Watch, etc can be released next year and then Pokémon in 2019

        • UnburdenedLegume

          You should have a look at what PS4/X1 are releasing next year. You wont have any doubts anymore then, Nintendo knows they’ll fall behind if they cant offer at least one big title in 2018

  • Hayley Waalen

    Gen 8!!!!!

    • Sunniera

      Gen 7 isn’t even over yet!

      • Hayley Waalen

        Okay

  • Michael Okeefe

    It might be way too soon for release. It’s going to be released in 2019, regardless.

    • PJ

      I personally feel like Spring ’19 might be a more reasonable assumption, but GF has been working on Switch stuff since 2016 as evidenced with their Sun/Moon porting.

      • Omar

        But the question is, is the Sun/Moon port real in the first place?

  • Anonymous

    I’d like the games to be next year, but if they’re going to be rushed which means we’ll miss out on content and awesome stories etc. then I’m happy to wait for 2019. As long as USUM is good enough to last on for two years

  • Ultron

    I don’t really feel like it’s enough time to create a polished Pokémon game for Switch. I don’t like waiting, but if it makes a better game then go right ahead. Just give me Animal Crossing Switch to pass the time! 😛

    • UnburdenedLegume

      Unless they’ve been working on gen 8 for a while and all they have to do is upgrade it graphically, which is fairly easy to do unless we’re talking about a massive game

      • Ultron

        I imagine that the game has to be somewhat bigger, otherwise why make the jump? They reached the limit on the 3DS and now they’ve got a way bigger base to work with.

  • Chris Mckenzie

    they should called the gen 8’s Pokemon switch for the 2 games will be called Pokemon Circle and Pokemon Triangle

  • UnburdenedLegume

    Non-Pokemon related but a Kingdom Hearts 3 release is scheduled for November 1st, 2018. I HAVE ACTUAL TEARS IN MY EYES IVE WAITED SINCE 2007 FOR THIS

    • MK126

      YASSSSSSSS BOUT TIME 👐👐👐👐👐

  • MK126

    Id be all for this. Im sure they work on different games at the same time especially since i think it was reported in some interview that USUM was developed by a new team while a more experienced team developed and worked on Gen 8. We wont probably get Gen 8 til October/November of 2018 MAYBE

  • KᑌᑭᑭO

    Uh, it’s kinda hard to believe that Nintendo is pressuring GF to release a new game considering Nintendo isn’t about pressuring 2nd party developers and there having years without Pokemon games before. But if that’s the case then I hope GF is able to pull it off and not to rush the game :l

    • MenacingCascoon

      I mean, I could definitely see it, business can cruel and can change like that. They could decide that “You need to have next game out by 2016, or you need to make a game by 2017.” Things definitely do change, Maybe in the past they didnt care, but now they could be more pressuring. I definitely do believe GF is being pressured. Especially seeing how big Nintendo is, I wouldn’t doubt it at all. But yea like you said, I hope GF can pull it off.

    • Funny Valentine

      You’re forgetting that this isn’t Iwata Nintendo anymore, and Pokemon is one of their flagship franchises.

    • TheReece25

      They are banking on the Switch’s success. They know Pokemon is their #1 game. A new Pokemon game soon for the switch would be an instant success. It would finally encourage all the 3DS users it’s time to upgrade, and lure in past fans with the new graphics. Solidifying the Switches position next to the PS4 and Xbox. From a business perspective.. this is 100% believable

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        Yeah it makes sense that they’d want to make fans upgrade their 3ds to a switch but, is there really any hurry for this? So maybe they’re forcing GF to finish it in 2018 because there aren’t many big games coming that year; they have Kirby, FE and a few more really but nothing as big as Mario or Zelda.

  • Omar

    If this is true, I really hope they started development in 2015.

  • Funny Valentine

    Gen 7 is really quick then. 2 years for a generation is incredibly short. I thought they’d draw out the anime with another arc like they did in BW with the arc where traveled around a bunch of islands.

    • TheReece25

      They anime has already started the games story arc.. which I thought was soon.. maybe not

  • MenacingCascoon

    Poor, Pokemon, I dont want them to be under pressure. Honestly, I bet Nintendo keeps pushing them to make yearly releases. HOWEVEr, I really do not think gen 7 will come next year, I mean Ash hasnt even taken on any of the Ula Ula or Poni trials. And we need a movie for the electric mythical. I think 2018 will definitely be a blank year for Pokemon.

    • Ultron

      Yeah, but in a year he’s already at the aether foundation plot. Another year to do the other two islands isn’t a stretch.

      • MenacingCascoon

        But even the BW anime was 3 years long. (Granted last season was filler) Idk maybe if it releases late which pokemon normally does, but Idk I just dont see it. But I not always right

        • UnburdenedLegume

          They only added Decolore Islands arc because X/Y weren’t finished yet

        • Ultron

          I haven’t seen the SM anime, so I can’t say, but it does seem they’re focusing less on filler this time around and are more interested in creating a concise story.

          • UnburdenedLegume

            Still a considerably big chunk of filler episodes (not BW level tho) but they are less annoying because of the slice of life themed content

          • Ultron

            True. I need to get around to watching them.

      • MK126

        Plus there isnt much of a league so I doubt there would be a lot of episoded focusing on becoming champion of Alola

  • Unseelie Fairy
  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Whatever. It’ll come when it comes and all that matters is that it’s a solid game. No one can say for sure if it will be or not at this point so anyone saying that it coming out next is a bad thing is jumping to conclusions. They spent a crap ton of time on DP and look how that turned out. I’m sure whatever it is it’ll be up the the general standard that has been created. At this point they know how to create 3d models and properly design a 3d world so it’s not like we’ll end up with XY again where they were inexperienced. If they bring what they know from gen 7 to the Switch then it’ll be a good game. Also just because Ishihara said he thought the Switch would fail it doesn’t mean that GF shared the same thought. Ishihara runs TPC not GF. If Masuda and the higher ups at GF saw potential then they could have gotten started right from the get go. I wouldn’t be surprised if they were at the very least looking at the system when developer units were being shipped out before but was announced. Don’t worry guys it’ll still be a Pokemon game

    • Unseelie Fairy

      The issue some people have, myself and Star included, is that Pokémon relies too much on the fact that ‘its a Pokémon game’. I know that many people are happy with the current formula, but it’d just be nice to see a new innovative Pokémon game and that’s near impossible in such a short time span.

    • Ok but like…

      The GBA is much closer to the DS and the DS is to the 3DS or the 3DS is to the Switch.

      Developing for the Switch is a very different beast from anything done before. This is their chance to take their time and make something new. It’s a total waste if they’re goona be rushed

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        I get what you’re saying, but it’s not like they’ve never ever made a game for a console before. Plus the 3ds really isn’t as different compared to the Switch as you’re making it out to be. They already know how to make high res models. It’s not a matter of making the models. The obit real difference is that the Switch is a single screen and the 3ds is two. They’re more than equiped to handle it. Now if you’re worried about story and concepts that’s a different thing

  • A slice of life Pokémon anime with likable characters would be incredible

    • Sunniera

      From what little I have seen of the current season-it seems a bit like slice of life. Who else do you not like aside from Sophocles (he is a given)?

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Like, no badges or anything, just everyday life but with Pokémon.

        • Sunniera

          That sounds like a great opportunity for a spin-off game. Probably a combination of Nintendogs and Animal Crossing. I may have just predicted a future Pokémon App.

      • The characters aren’t likable. Ash is annoying af

        • Sunniera

          I am starting to get the feeling that gen 7 is the low Point of Pokémon for you. When you consider both the game and anime. If it’s only the game then it’s gen 6 hands down.

          • Gen 6 was actually

          • Sunniera

            Also what do you think of how they handled Lillie in the anime. Since you said that the characters in the SM season aren’t likable, I am wondering what you opinion is on Lillie since I think she was your favorite character in SM (video game).

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Isn’t that want SM is? Ash going to school and basically accomplishing nothing? Haha

  • ShinyXatu

    I know this is what’s being reported and all, but I still think it’ll come in March 2019 or something like that. I could see it being announced either at E3 or around September next year and then have a fairly short hype window (yet longer than USUM by a country mile). November 2018 could happen, but it just feels wrong to me.

  • Unseelie Fairy

    I really hope that PokéSwitch comes as late as possible, I just want these games to be as great as possible and I’m afraid that they’ll just make it ‘current Pokémon, but longer’.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Well, this is their first time on the switch and they seem to have only one year to make the game so that seems the most likely chance. But maybe the second games they make for the Switch is something that is “great as possible” who knows.

      • Unseelie Fairy

        They won’t have a year to make the game, they would’ve been making it simultaneously with other games which is still harmful because it means it wasn’t that focused on it it only gets like a year to itself

  • Chaos

    I don’t have a Switch and have no intention of buying one in the near future. So USUM may well be the last Pokemon game I play in a while.

  • Govnah

    gen 8 will be out in 2018 so

  • Unseelie Fairy

    Predictions on Gen 8’s title(s)? Winner gets a shiny bred of their choice 👀

    • Butter Geek

      My actual idea some time ago was Pokemon Freedom and Pokemon Unity

      • Those things aren’t opposites…

  • Amiibo outfits for Pokémon Switch

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Please be a thing. If they don’t get integrate amiibos in some way it’ll be a missed opportunity.

  • Butter Geek

    I really freakin hope I won’t see any spoilers from the leaks or I’m going back into my Bunker

    • They all should be marked

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      I doubt spoilers for the actual game will come until next year so no need to baneful bunker yourself yet

    • Sunniera

      In the games you return to the Sinnoh Region. They were DP remakes all along.

      • Butter Geek

        *Sounds of Star being happy*

    • Govnah

      Damn I Cant believe Lillie’s Grandfathers dog’s second owner is the champion

      • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

        Isn’t the dog a secret member of gamefreak?

        • Prashanth Raghuram

          Yeah and it’s actually a human the upcoming protagonist of doge mystery dungeon

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Lillie drop kicks Giovanni and makes Team Aether, where she captures Glitch Form Necrozma (revealed to be Missingno) to rewrite the region to be kawaii asf

      • Unseelie Fairy

        Also Lillie’s a Fairy expert and has never even touched an Ice type 👀

    • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

      I can’t believe Necrozma fuses with the tapus and kyurem to become the original dragon!

      • Unseelie Fairy

        It’s called Necruzem and it’s Fairy/Dragon, ability is Rainbow which lets it use attract on any Pokémon

    • I can’t believe that Necrozma achieves light form and uses the ultimate z move

      • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

        And they called it “Light that burns the sky”

        • It’s so crazy wow

          • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

            It’s literally a tactical nuke

      • Prashanth Raghuram

        The birthing cut scene where solgaleo and lunala fuse to form a cosmog is simultaneously beautiful and disturbing

    • Sunniera

      I can’t believe that Lillie and Gladion are basically Cersei and Jaime Lannister in USUM and Lusamine’s villain arc is just her being a responsible parent and trying to break them up by sending them to her dear friends Professor Kukui and Guzma…I may have went too far into “spoiler” territory.

      • Prashanth Raghuram

        You forgot that Lusamine wasn’t trying to be a good parent but only trying to gladion out of the way to get with Lillie and Guzma becomes gladion’s sugar daddy, but all of that’s only after the rainbow rocket villain orgy in the post game.

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Guzma and Molayne reveal they both had crushes on Kukui, that’s why one turned evil and the other is irrelevant. Burnet shacks up with Lusamine and the gay trio summon the ultimate Fairy-type, Tapu Homo

      • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

        Isn’t it fairy fire for the flamboyancy?

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        Ok this has gone too far

        • Unseelie Fairy

          You’re just salty you got spoiled for the DLC 👁‍🗨

        • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

          No..
          We haven’t gone far enough

      • Unseelie Fairy

      Your sh*tpost from here is a better story for a pokemon game than the one from XY

      • Govnah

        • Unseelie Fairy

          It evolves by holding the Susicious Object you find in your house, it becomes Poison/Electric with the ability Battery and the move Horn Attack

          • Prashanth Raghuram

            Horny* Attack.

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        XY had a story?

    • Prashanth Raghuram

      The biggest spoiler is probably that ASH IS IN THE GAME and he possesses you and then takes you into the anime world through an ultra wormhole to his house with Kiawe and their Alolan form babies.

  • Butter Geek

    How many hours of gameplay long would you like Pokemon Switch to be?

    • Unseelie Fairy

      A fück ton. Just the campaign or like overall?

      • EarthenWarrior

        So in Germany?

        • Soggy Auggy

          Did someone need my German expertise

    • Sunniera

      1.000. That is one-thousand hours in countries such as Mexico.

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      35 hours like a normal Pokemon game campaign but I hope this time is greatly extended to 100 hours or so in the post game, like, I want good post game GF pls

    • Longer than my patience for this series

    • Govnah

      Longer then any chance of Incineroar getting love

    • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

      Longer than Reshiram’s all mighty draconic penis

      • zess

        I almost choked on my lollipop 🤣

        • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

          whoops

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      If well paced? Maybe around 50-60? That’s a solid game length I think without feeling over board. Plus with Pokemon it’s not like it really matters. The most amount of time I’ve put into Pokemon games is typically not even while playing the story

  • EarthenWarrior

    Ugh that new magenta background is giving me a headache
    As for Pokemon on the switch i’m very very skeptical,
    Yes the Switch is the hot new item around but i just don’t know how well a full fledged pokemon game will go down, i dunno i just feel weird about it being on home consoles on the big screen and I don’t like carrying the switch on my person at all times unlike my 3ds which is always in my pocket everywhere i go. and the online capabilities don’t like me very much and won’t connect anywhere that isn’t my basement

    I honestly need some kind of trailer or overview to state my full opinion

    As for Gen 8 I really hope they step up their game and really focus on creating lots of new interesting pokemon with plenty to choose from, I just really don’t like the small pokedexs and want plenty of variety because plenty can agree from the last 2 gens that some types got plenty of attention while others got shafted,
    As for a region I want something based on either Australia or possibly Russia, but mostly Australia since it has so much life and mystery to it and that would really work for me

    as for mechanics i kinda hope they take a more wild and bold unorthodox approach from the whole overworld, i kinda wish they could take a more…breath of the wild approach where Pokemon sightings are more immersive where you could actually see pokemon skitter and wander around

    now for some negatives, it is not unheard of that as players we want bigger and longer and more spectacular games by the year and it takes a lot of time, energy brain power and a whole lotta fresh imagination, yeah we want gigantic post games and bigger flashier things but sometimes they just don’t have the ideas or go the extra mile or time limitations are a factor, but i believe that if they hold out just long enough and got plenty of people on it we can actually see something like that

  • Govnah

    Getting it day 1 dont care anymore

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Just when you thought this game couldn’t get more anime :p

    • zess

      Can’t wait to get this game! It looks really great. But I’m a bit worried that since I’m new to the series certain things might not make sense? Has anyone seen or read Made in The Abyss? This scene reminded me of it, on that note if done correctly that anime would make a great game.

  • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

    I like how kids nowadays play hangman…..
    Like think about it
    Wtf

    • Butter Geek

      Kids have been playing hangman for a long long time, it’s not like a new trend. But yeah, it is kinda f*cked up

    • Sunniera

      I played it all the time during Chemistry lab back in my sophomore year of undergrad. My T.A. Leo was cool and let us do it. I was very bad at the game because I tried to live vicariously through the man that we were hanging.

      • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

        Indeed

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      It’s one of those things that you don’t notice how mess up it is until you think about it

      • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

        Its straight up called hangman
        they ain’t even TRYIN to hide it

    • Chaos

      Nowadays? That’s been around for years. Hell we played it at school and no one gave a damn. Good times.

  • Luigi301

    Why are they under pressure? Also I know they said they are working on a switch game for 2018 but I think they should slow it down a little bit. They really don’t need to throw out a new game only a year later

    • Prashanth Raghuram

      So that the switch doesn’t Wii u it out… I mean admittedly it has a better hardware and already some great titles but a limited library soon after release can really hurt console sales

  • Agent F

    There are a number of ways to look at this

    – Switch is a big upgrade. Masuda has already shown that they understand the challenge ahead.
    – They need time to make a good quality switch game. From graphics, mechanics to story and Pokemon.
    – GF always plans ahead so they must have anticipated the move to the switch and planned from earlier.
    The question is when? 2016 or 2017?
    – Nintendo is a business. Business is cruel. Pokemon is their diamond jewel for sales. I can definetly see them pressuring GF.
    – However GF has shown before they can stand up to Nintendo albeit respectfully.
    Plus GF understands the size of the project they’re taking on so surely they will try to compromise.

    My switch prediction: Gen switch gets teased sometime next year.
    Gets released early/mid 2019.

  • Just saying if Smash and Animal Crossing release this year they WILL cannibalize any Pokémon sales

    • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

      I’d say moreso the latter than the prior

      • Smash was THE system seller for the Wii U and and Animal Crossing was the system seller for the 3DS that wasn’t Pokémon

        • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

          But Pokemon still sold the 3ds
          Plus a smash game came out relatively recently so

    • Butter Geek

      The best option:
      Animal Crossing Switch Summer 2018
      Smash Switchh XMas 2018
      Pokemon Switch Early 2019

      • Govnah

        it wont come out early 2019.

    • Unseelie Fairy

      I’d say Pokémon would cannibalise them tbh

      • HAHAHAHAA
        No

        • Unseelie Fairy

          Hahaha

          Yes

          If these games were to come out, it’d be Pokémon and another one cannibalising the third one. Not AC and Smash cannibalising one of the best selling franchises of all time.

          • Fam Smash 4 destroyed ORAS in sales.

            Smash is huge.

          • Govnah

            I can see Smash but not Animal crossing

          • Unseelie Fairy

            ORAS was a remake with poor marketin, those inheritly sell worse. PokéSwitch is going to be hyped asf

    • Govnah

      eh they wont

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Smash definitely would, but AC ehhh not so much

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      They’re all vastly different games tho. They could each have an equal piece of the pie without it being a problem.

      Formed: After seeing the state of Guzzlords Ultra Space, I realized that the Ultra Beasts had been mistreated and outcasted by society.

      Team Reclaimer

      It’s our goal so hence the name

      Our goal would be to turn the human world into a haven for Ultra Beasts to punish the humans who had destroyed their homes in their dimensions and punish those who are unwilling to accept harmony with them.

      Final Team: A mix of Bugs, ghosts, misunderstood types, and UBS

      Decidueye
      Araquanid
      Krookodile
      Naganadel
      Blacephalon

        Nice……so finally some one believe in me….but u can’t trust in humanz so punish them all.

    • Siem de Daler

      – I will form it because of global warming.
      – Team Sundevource
      – Because it “devourses the Sun”
      – Make the sun shine less, stop the people from causing global warming
      – Solgaleo
      Team: Arcanine, Rapidash and Volcorona

      And now its your turn

    • Awesome Waffles

      To free people from the tyranny of clothing!

      It would be called Team Figleaf! (A figleaf often serves as a symbol for nudism.)

      Figleaf’s hopes to achieve a clothes free world, where people can feel the breeze!

      To this end, they’d use the legendaries to revert the planet back to before clothing was invented.

      Final boss team:

      Ludicolo
      Gourgeist
      Golisopod
      Volcarona
      Barbarnacle
      Wishiwashi

      It’s basically a more evil version of Nudist Beach from Kill la Kill. Also not the most serious team.

      • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

        Oh my god I literally thought of Kill La Kill XD

    • Shady

      – obviously humanz

  • Unseelie Fairy

    Unpopular opinion but I hop PokéSwitch launches in late 2019, like how bOReASs was nearly a full two years before a better game

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Inb4 this is what the majority wants

      • Unseelie Fairy

        I’ll be happy if it is tbh

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    What’s one animal you’d like to get a Pokemon? (Inb4 dolphin) I’d like to see a flamingo

    • A non starter Ice type penguin

    • Unseelie Fairy

      A more accurate rhino or a peacock

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Yeah maybe a rhino that stays on all fours. Have we never had a peacock Mon? I find that hard to believe haha

    • Govnah

      not an animal but better ground types

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      A better rabbit pkm pls

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        I’ve always liked the idea of a grass/fire rabbit

    • Awesome Waffles

      Do mythical animals count?

      If so, a Pokémon based on Sleipnir.

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        So a horse? Lol

        • Awesome Waffles

          An eight legged horse thank you very much.

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Oh ok…….sure why not that sounds alright

    • Govnah

      Give me a mon based off the Nuckelavee

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        So another horse? What’s with you people and horses? Haha

        • Unseelie Fairy

          But it’s the centaur’s heavy metal emo cousin

        • Govnah

          Um sir its Human body tied to a Horse?

    • Maybe a crocodile? I don’t think we’ve gotten one based off of that

      • Govnah

        Krookodile

        • Oh, right. I got nothing then

          • Govnah

            join the nuckelavee family

          • That’s disturbing…

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Sandile? But a different type croc/alagator would be nice

    • zebstriker

      A kiwi bird

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Ooooooooo that’d be cool. Also to some degree I think the doduo line part part Kiwi, but a full fledged Kiwi would be nice. I imagine it wouldn’t fly? Do Kiwis fly?

  • Govnah

    I remember during the X/Y days since Zygarde i wanted two more pokemon based off a wolf and humanoid creature so we can mons be based off Loki’s 3 children. Now i realized that Zygarde forms basically gave me my wish lol

  • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

    On the topic of bugs, why does Volbeat get tail glow but Illumise doesn’t?
    Like it’s called “Firefly light” in japan and Illumise is a fucking firefly

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Because if you look a Volbeat it doesn’t have a glowing tail, it has a three holed butt that lets out smells that gets Volbeat to follow it

      • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

        • Butter Geek

          He was a lifeguard?…
          …how?…

          • Soggy Auggy

            Honey as an OG member of this site honey? I’ve seen one pic of Earthen and he is (was?) in good shape and I remember him talking about being a lifeguard in New York

        • I think he works retail

          • Soggy Auggy

            Oh poor thing no wonder he rages so much

  • Govnah

    Nintendo has filed a new set of trademarks for multiple games, including Super Smash Bros. The news comes to us via Japanese Nintendo, which points out that additional trademarks have been filed for multiple amiibo, The Legend of Zelda, Splatoon, and Animal Crossing.

    • Ultron

      Are you saying the animal crossing, zelda, and splatoon trade marks are for amiibo?

      • Govnah

        no

        • Ultron

          Oh good. There don’t need to be any more AC amiibos lol

    • Josh Omega

      It’s looking more and more like we will get a smash bros for switch sometime next year. Perhaps an announcement in a direct latercthis year?

  • Soggy Auggy

    HAHAAAA omg remember like 5 years ago when I accidentally posted a selfie of me on the beach with a towel on my head lmao

    • Ultron

      Vaguely but also not really?

      • Soggy Auggy

        I remember when we all had the great idea of uploading selfies so we can put names to faces… it didn’t go so well. Everyone’s a little shy

        • Unseelie Fairy

          That’s happened a few times more recently, think the last one was a few months ago? First time I ever did it

          • Sunniera

            I put my face up while I was wearing my Rocket Grunt uniform on Halloween this year. No one joined me.

          • Butter Geek

            You looked so good everyone started feeling bad about their bodies

          • TheReece25

            🤣.

          • Soggy Auggy

            Can’t seem to find it but I’m assuming you’re a twink 😉 lmao

            My profile pic is me 🙂

  • pokedigijedi

    That depends, are they rushing it? then no, they should take their time to make it good.

    If not then by all means go ahead release it by 2018, I just don’t want to see a game that could’ve been great ruined because some wise guy decided to get his paycheck a little bit faster.
    I don’t want to see a great franchise ruined by an incomplete buggy game

  • Josh Omega

    I would be okay with it as long as it isn’t rushed out. That said we don’t know how exactly long they have been working on this. They may have been working on it for a good while now.

  • Unseelie Fairy

    So what’s everyone’s plans for the seventeenth? I’ve got a day off of school so time to no life a whole weekend XD

    • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

      Oh, simple
      Having two friendos over to experience the game with me

      • Butter Geek

        I wish I had friends who play pokemon

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      whats a sevneteeth

      • KᑌᑭᑭO

        Oh you mean the date USUM comes out

        • Unseelie Fairy

          No, seventeenth of December

          I must know every detail of all your lives so when it comes time to destroy you all from the inside I’ll be able to do it successfully 👀

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Oh, but that’s really far away so I might either, play or watch something new i’ve illegally download in my PC, study for a really hard test that’ll come out of nowhere or if I’m really lucky, play Xeno 2

          • Unseelie Fairy

            Not OOSOOM? You heathen 👀

          • KᑌᑭᑭO

            Gotta save money for games that aren’t half identical to those i’ve already played 👀

            Gisp 0:

          • Butter Geek

            You sir are just wrong

    • Every time a new games comes out you get a day off… You get it easy!

      • Unseelie Fairy

        What? I had a SuMo come out on a Wednesday XD

      • And we’ll since I’m with my dad so I will be sitting in the car playing alongside my brother hoping that my 3ds isn’t broken

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Calling off work and then spending the entire day playing USUM. Nothing more nothing less

    • Gamer Dragon07

      I’m lucky that I’m off from work that day so now I can waste an entire day playing USUM

    • EarthenWarrior

      -Leave the house at 8:45
      -wait until Toys R Us opens at 9:00
      -quickly get both copies and any swag they got
      -drive like a lunatic home
      -go to the basement where a gallon of water and a bag of Cheetos puffs will be waiting for me
      -boot up the game wearing my comfy shirt and pj bottoms
      -play until I finish the first trial and trade over Jangmo-o
      -play until body shuts down

    • Butter Geek

      I won’t play it on the 17th
      *dramatic music*
      I’ll play it on the 18th while on my airplane to a week in Turkey!

  • I made something today

    I made another cat Pokémon

    Coogar a Fire type Cogar (name is a mix of Cogar+Cook) I want it just for pun

    • Butter Geek

      Maybe make it a chef or something kitchen related? It could be Normal type with a move that is a diffrent type depending on the nature, cuz Pokemon treats natures as taste preference. The Pun would still work.

  • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

    I completely forgot that banette was a voodoo doll

    • Unseelie Fairy

      What did PU do to its Mega?

      Banette.

      • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

        PU never had a mega

        • Unseelie Fairy

          I just want a pun

  • ShinyXatu

    An interesting thought: if we do get Gen 8 next year after all, we could be seeing the first hints of this as soon as this month or December. Remember back in the fall of 2015 when they started hinting at / revealing Zygarde Complete Forme in the movie? Whenever they begin discussing Movie 21, they could also hint at a new form or Pokémon.

    • Unseelie Fairy

      Oh God I remember the reaction to Ash-greninja… And people thinking Z was confirmed

      • ShinyXatu

        Oh yeah, and I did too. I was pretty confident that we’d get Gen 7 in 2016 but that threw me for a loop. Little did we know that Z and Sun/Moon would be combined in some ways!

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      I’d say the first real hints will come in January. I think they’ll follow a similar track like they did with eh gen 6 to 7 transition. First the new mythical we have in December and then early next year they’ll reveal either a mythical for the next gen or whatever the special Pokemon from gen 8 it is. Kind of hope it’s a regular Mon tho. It was cool when they used normal Pokemon as the special guest

  • Could Nintendo not pressure them for it? That’s what leads to things going downhill.
    Ease up on the pressure, let them launch it early 2019 if they need to.

    • ShinyXatu

      I feel like Nintendo has some master plan in motion to sell a crazy number of consoles which involved Zelda on launch day and Mario in the holidays, then for next year it’s probably Animal Crossing, Smash Bros. and Pokémon to top it off. Wishful thinking on their part.

  • ShinyXatu

    Any thoughts on this? http://www.japanesenintendo.com/post/167397863114
    Trademark images for Splatoon, Animal Crossing, Zelda, amiibo and…Super Smash Bros. That last one has to be related to Smash Switch (unless it’s instead related to Smash amiibo, which it isn’t). Since there’s a separate trademark for Pocket Camp on this article I’m pretty sure Animal Crossing Switch is on the way in 2018 as well. Should be a fun year. Could we be seeing a blowout December Direct rather than waiting for January?

    • Butter Geek

      Yeah, it’ll be awesome! I’m not sure about a December Direct, maybe if AC Switch is coming out Summer

      • ShinyXatu

        I only say that because everyone talks about Nintendo’s “traditional” big January Direct, but I think they’re going to mix it up this time. Zelda could relate to the DLC releasing in December, Splatoon could be DLC as well, amiibo for, well, new amiibo, and AC + Smash for big announcements. Then everything else is third-party. There’s a chance!

    • Daedardus

      Standard licensing/trademark fanfare, they update the trademarks to include more products (mobile, merchandise,..) and lengthen the period of the trademark, nothing new. For all it may mean is that they intend to gather profits from the franchise, which doesn’t surprise me at all since they still sell all those stuff.

      • ShinyXatu

        I understand that argument of course, but Smash Bros. still sticks out like a sore thumb in this list. That makes me think the others could be suspect as well.

  • Unseelie Fairy

    Spoilers for USUM (so pretty much just spoilering this for butter) I’m really upset we didn’t get a new Nihilego form. As in, Mother Beast Nihilego but without Lusamine in it. You can explain away the change by saying ‘it has human energy in it’ and stuff. Keep it Rock/Poison with levitate or spice up the type Combo with Fairy/Poison or something. It could’ve even been through Ultra Burst like Ultra Necrozma is.

    • Butter Geek

      T H A N K Y O U

      • Unseelie Fairy

        No prob

  • Kuhnsanguine

    I think Pokemon has shifted to a faster release schedule. The pattern of Main, Sequel, Retro, hasn’t changed to Main, Sequel, Main, Retro. I expect that next year we will get Gen VIII on the switch and in 2019 we will get Gen IV on the switch.

    • Kuhnsanguine

      *Has changed

  • ShinyXatu

    I think I know what the first Gen 8 Pokémon to be featured in Movie 21 could be…BANANINI!

    • I wish it was real

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      I’ll never forget this beauty and the things it caused in this website

    • Dazzling Rainbow Grunt

      Nope I followed the artist on instagram

  • I’m not worried and I am going try to stay optimistic because if this rumor is true (which there’s a good chance it could be given the apparent history with this leaker on getting things right before. Kinda reminds me of the Gematsu Leaker. There is a chance he could be wrong) then that means Pokemon Stars was real and that Game Freak has been considering a Switch game since 2016 or possibly earlier. Then that also means Game Freak will have had at least two or three years (or possibly more) to have worked on this game. I certainly don’t want a rushed product at all. X and Y could have been a lot better but it felt kinda rushed now that I look back on it. Though again, I am trying to think positive. Thinking negative won’t get you anywhere. From what I read in an interview the other day, veteran developers were put to work on the Switch project while younger developers were put to work on Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. I have a feeling that Game Freak knows what they’re up against. Gotta keep some faith in Game Freak that they’ll get it right for their debut game on the Switch.

    • Agent F

      I really like your personality. You’re so positive and optimistic, kinda like me 😛
      It’s a nice change! GF knows what they’re doing, we’ll be fine:]

    Hello deers, I hope i dropped in at a better time, I am just so tired of being alone in the middle of the night/early morning… Sleep is hard.

      you’re not the only one

      • Deerlia

        It’s the rockruff life, huh?

        • EarthenWarrior

          I’m just bummed, i did nothing productive and i feel like a old uninteresting schmoe
          Just sitting alone in my basement doing PUGs on wow (Pick up group) while watching old kids movies (Atlantis) just waiting for something to happen

          • Deerlia

            Eh, can’t be as bad as being a doe on the couch watching spongebob and FOP every night… usually into the mornings next day, hoping for something to change ever so slightly, my fur is orange and matted quite often, given it’s my autumn coat and all…

    • I hate being alone too. The night is fun, but only when you have someone to share it with

    • Agent F

      You’re welcome to hang around with us Junglers :]

      • Deerlia

        You don’t wanna hang out as late as i do, i lurk from 6 PM to 6 AM EST, then i usually crash on my haybed and try to get some beauty sleep…

        • Agent F

          You’ll be surprised deer how late I can go! Although tonight will be an early one as have to be up early tommorow!

          • Deerlia

            Well, that’s usually the case for me, people cannot do it, or have other plans for staying up so late…

    Please, Nintendo, if you want to pressure Game Freak, just pressure it to make a really good game. You planned to release BotW in 2015! You had take your time and everyone knows how good the result was.

    • I dont think they are being rushed at all. It is nothing like what Nintendo is like

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Yeah I mean we’ve see in interviews that GF can stone wall Nintendo when they want to. They’re two separate companies that are on more or less equal footing. Sure GF basically has to make Pokemon for whatever console Nintendo puts out, but I suspect that if Nintendo tried to pull some crap Masuda and the higher ups would stop them. They might be pushed to do certain things, but ultimately GF will do whatever it wants.

    Celesteela always reminds me of Gasgano from Star Wars. Its body also reminds me of podracers and Gasgano ride one of them. Coincidentally, Celesteela is called Blaster.

  • It’s so weird thinking about how Pokémon has literally been with me my entire life???

    Like I played it when I was super little with Red but never really got into it but 8 laters later I got Soul Silver and that changed my world. Before then I just played liscensed shovelware but Soul Silver was really what got me into real games

    I played Platinum and a few spin offs later on. Until eventually BW were announced and it was all I could think about for so long. I was obsessed with all of the rumors and possible hints left in other generations. When I finally got my hands on Black version the excitement was unreal

    B2W2 was the first game I bought after moving to another state. That post game was what really captivated me.

    X and Y’s announcement and hype season was just unreal even if the end result was disappointing. Nothing beats that excitement of seeing new Pokémon every month.

    The “mewthree” reveal led me to this site actually. I lurked for a looong time.
    ORAS was also crazy after all the Hoenn Confirmed memes and it’s what actually got me to make an account here

    Just idk… it’s weird looking back at it. Looking back to each game is also looking back in different stages of my life so far. When gen 8 comes out.. like… damn, things will be even more different

    Idk just something I keep thinking about

    • TheNintendoChip

      Same though. I remember having a similar realization around when X/Y came out. After each main series release, I make an effort to take a moment to think about how much my life has changed since the previous one!

  • Natsu

    It makes sense that Nintendo would be pressuring GameFreak into releasing or hastening the production and development of the Switch Pokemon games. Between 2010 and 2017, Pokemon has amassed over 71 million sales across its core series, Mystery Dungeon series, and Pokken. Furthermore, Pokemon is at an all-time high right now with both X/Y and Sun/Moon soon to breach 16 million sales and Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon likely to bring in sales upwards of 7-10 million. Nintendo understand that Pokemon is the bread and butter of their company at this point: if the Switch gained further traction by introducing a Pokemon title, then the tables will truly turn and competition will be in Nintendo’s favor. At the same time, if GameFreak, because they are pressured release a “bad” Nintendo Switch game in comparison to Windwaker and Odyssey, the backlash and disappointment will be quite adversarial to deal with. However, when taking into account that GameFreak has always planned ahead and have probably been working on a Pokemon Switch title since 2016 and the rushed release of Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon, they might have respectfully disinclined themselves from Nintendo’s pressures. Creating a ‘meh’ game that will boost sales for one quarter versus creating an “awe-inspiring” game that will boost sales for years on end… GameFreak better make the right choice…

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      Windwaker………I think you mean Breath of the Wild

      Are videos like these really necessary? For some, I understand (like when there’s ambiguity, like Virizion, Volcanion, etc.). This just seemed pretty straightforward though…? Maybe that’s just me though

      • EarthenWarrior

        Very much yes,

      • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

        For things like Blacephalon and Naganadel, yes

        • TheNintendoChip

          I more so meant how the same person had videos for the other new Pokemon too. I can understand Blacephalon despite the fact that it seemed okay to me, and I can totally understand Naganadel.

    • TheUltraMonster6893

      I’ve been trying figure out Naganadel’s face. It’s eyes go from actual eyes to just a stretched out thing. Does it still have a mouth like Poipole does or does it not anymore?

      • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

        That stretched out thing is its eyes. You see that gray portion on its face? That and the skin above act as a mouth that can open. The gray thing is basically a bottom lip and head

        • TheUltraMonster6893

          Hmmm ok I think that’s how I figured it went. It’s just a major change from Poipole

    I don’t think Nintendo “pressuring” GF is the same as them rushing. They’ve had easily 2 years already to start getting ready for this. (last year and this year) Usually production for their games takes somewhere around 3ish years. I wouldn’t even be surprised honestly if they knew something about the Switch back in 2015. They may not have had the developer unit for sure, but they would be one of the first companies that Nintendo proper would tell about the Switch. They were on the ground floor for the 3ds developer units too so it’s unsurprising if they got the Switch early too. If you count last year, this year and the better part of next year that’ll amount to almost 3 years. On top of that I’d say they’ve been developing in some pat gen 8 since 2015. They start conceptual work SUPER early for each gen so it’s not out of the question for that to have been a thing. Altogether it amounts 3 or more years of work toward the Switch game. That’s a pretty decent time period for them to get stuff ready. Plus on top of that they clearly have an understanding of how to properly create HD 3d models since most of the Pokemon models are in fact in HD, but are just scaled down to match the 3ds’ limitations. I see no reason anyone should worry about the Switch game. Not at this point anyway. We shouldn’t judge a game that we have absolutely no info on other than that it exists.

    • Prashanth Raghuram

      It is entirely possible that they created the HD models anticipating a switch game

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Exactly. They prolly knew that the regular handheld era was over

  • Shady
  • TheReece25

    What was Zeraora’s Dex entry?

    • TheReece25

      And there will be no national Dex???

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Not in this gen there isn’t. They’ll prolly bring it back next gen

        • TheReece25

          What does that even mean tho… We can’t use Pokemon not available in game..? Or they just won’t have any Dex entry?? Wtf

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            They prolly just don’t have a dex entry. It’s a really weird thing to do, but it is what it is. I imagine for VGC they’ll make a point to tell people what they can and can’t use. For average online play I’m sure you can use whatever you want. It’ll just be tricky for the actual competitions.

          • TheReece25

            Ugh…

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            I know…..It’s annoying. We’ll just have to see what they do once the games are actually out.

      • belmad

        I think the reason is there are creatures coming from other dimensions other places etc., whole space time thing is fucked up as the generation itself.

        Whole UB thing was gimmick. Therefore they didn’t want to introduce a national dex them appearing in it. In next generaiton when there is national dex there won’t be any UB in them, there will just be Pokemon from this dimension. UBs will be long forgotten.

        Another possibility could be just Rotom being an asshole.

        This is just an opinion.

          Dex entries have always been crazy. I think the fact about Hypno stealing kids away was from one of its dex entries

          • TheReece25

            I know.. and they just keep taking it further. Parents were already pissed over that or something similar

          • TheUltraMonster6893

            Are they? I’ve never seen parents be outraged over the entries.

          • TheReece25

            I forget… I read something about all Pokemon controversies. I can only think of Jinx and the seizure episode.. but I know if parents bothered to go deep into their kids games.. there would be upset.

    • Yep and one that I think they for the first time, they went to far

      “At night, it weeps loudly for its dead mother, but those cries only attract its natural enemy; Mandibuzz.”

      I love the choice of Cradily. Always loved the grass/rock type combo and want to see it used again. Forestress is an interesting choice. Personally I’d recommend Durant over it, but hey, that’s just me.

      • Josei & the Nekomata

        Cradily was an easy choice. It’s not perfect, but it’s bulky and I always intended to use it. Choosing Forretress surprised me too.

    • Luigi301

      Stoutland and Cradily are two of my all time favorite pokemon. I used both competitively. cradily was when I was new to competitive so i did a weird set. Stoutland is one of my top pokemon in competitive.

      • Josei & the Nekomata

        I’m curious – what kind of set with cradily did you use?

        As for stoutland, I’m thinking of using one or two elemental fangs for coverage (fire for sure).

        • Luigi301

          it was a weird set, i dont quite remember tbh. iv wise it was like a mix of ivs towards spD and spA, moveset was like infestation toxic stealth rock something i dont really remember. again this was when i was starting out and i just really like the pokemon

    • Monkeyfuzz

      I love Alolan Muk and Noivern. For Stoutland try and get Psychic Fangs as an egg move.

      • Josei & the Nekomata

        Oof, psychic fangs is a tall order, especially on a main game run. Maybe after all is done.

      It looks like it sucks, but on the bright side it’s the only game where Grey Matter, Stinkfly and Upgrade are playable

      • TheReece25

        It looks like a decent money grab.. which the entire franchise is now. A great concept that has and never will have a great game

          Yeah, I might get it if it’s ever on sale but probably not

          Probably not, I doubt they’ll do DLC and Gax was stolen by Vligax anyway

  • Ultron

    Okay, idk if this is common knowledge to everyone who has a Switch, but apparently there’s a battery pack stand that hooks into your Switch to give it a bunch of extra life in hand held mode. For me, this is a game changer because I play it almost exclusively in hand held and find myself running out of battery too quickly. Just thought I would tell y’all incase you’re like me and wanted something like this to come along.

    Also, I got my Daruk Amiibo today and might I say it’s gorgeous. Luckily the Urbosa one went back in stock this morning on Amazon and I was able to order one of hers <3

    • Dazzling Rainbow Grunt

      Urbosa is amazing, easily my favorite amiibo I own, with Revali as a close second, I can’t wait till I get Daruk and Mipha on Christmas! These are easily the best batch of amiibo yet!

      • Ultron

        The Revali one looks really nice, but I hated him as a character so I’m not certain I want him lol.

        • Dazzling Rainbow Grunt

          Yeah I can understand that, but if you can find them I recommend all of them, Revali and Urbosa both look GORGEOUS and from what I’ve seen Mipha and Daruk are too

          • Ultron

            Yeah honestly it kinda might bother me if I don’t have the set haha. But then again I don’t have the BotW Link or Zelda either. Thought theirs were just okay.

          • Ultron

            Bother me*

          • Dazzling Rainbow Grunt

            Yeah I’m missing rider link, Zelda and the Bokoblin, and I’m getting the other Champions for Christmas, I definitely find the champions way better than every other amiibo (ever) they look beautiful and would honestly be the only set I would feel bothered by not having

          • Ultron

            I really want them to make an Amiibo for Riju. Maybe for the other hero incarnates as well?

          • Dazzling Rainbow Grunt

            Definitely I’ve personally dubbed them as “The New Champions” I would buy all of them in a heartbeat as well, but obviously if I could only preorder one my gay ass would choose Sidon

          • Ultron

            Sidon is pretty cool. I actually like them all quite a bit :3 Wish we got to see more of them!

            Definitely would’ve been great, maybe they will help rebuild Hyrule in the DLC?

          • Ultron

            Is that what the next DLC is focused on?

          • Dazzling Rainbow Grunt

            I believe so, it was stated it takes place after beating Ganon, so it’s highly likely, and also possible they will help us, perhaps even some sort of thing where only they can sense the champions spirits, being there descendants/brother for some reason. Actually now that I think about it, was Tiba related to Revali?

          • Ultron

            I think so? Either way, I really hope so. I would love defeating ganon to be permanent

    • TheReece25

      I feel like the battery is amazing… Lol. I dunno

      • Ultron

        Idk, I only get like 3-4 hours right now in handheld

  • TheUltraMonster6893

    Whelp IGN is a disgusting company and deserves to be burned to the ground. Never going there again for anything.,

    • Dazzling Rainbow Grunt

      I don’t know what caused you to post this but I 100% agree

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Apparently IGN has been covering up a sexual harassment problem and even blamed the victim. It happened when one of their staff got harassed on multiple cases throughout the course of what I think was over a year. She complained to HR and they never did much. Eventually the guy was let go I think, but it was essentially on good terms. Now a large group of their staff has walked out on them due to this disgusting behavior.

        • Dazzling Rainbow Grunt

          Wtf how could anyone blame the victim?!! I know it happens a lot but seriously. That’s like saying the reason I’m far is because someone put chocolate in front of me, the chocolate was something I wanted but it’s not like I couldn’t resist it. Or like saying I stole something because I wanted it and it looked good, that doesn’t make it right

    • Ultron

      Yep. IGN is filled with gross individuals. Sadly I still go there for news. Any suggestions for better pop-culture places that are less toxic?

      • TheUltraMonster6893

        Kotaku can be a good source of gaming news, but even then its parent company is weird. It’s terrible that so many of the bigger gaming sites are owned by awful people

      • Dazzling Rainbow Grunt

        I just use Reddit, then you can even use subreddits to filter out anything not news related

  • Unseelie Fairy

    Imagine how cool mythicals in an open world Pokémon would be? So like when they’re downloaded into your game, you have to track them down in the wide open world to some of the most obscure and wonderful places, before capturing them in areas with amazing vistas.

    • Prashanth Raghuram

      They kinda already did that on a smaller scale with like the roaming lake guardians from gen 4 so i can see that happening! They could add a device (like an app to the poketch or something) that allows you track them maybe or use clues and info to deduct where they may be

    • KᑌᑭᑭO

      Well I was hoping this would happen for a long time too, and these are some of the reasons why I want them want aside for feeling like a better way to obtain mythicals instead of just a distribution that doesn’t make much sense.

  • Deerlia

    Huh…?
    It says in the sun pokedex for Cutiefly it can sense auras… That stands out, like a Riolu.

  • Pewpew Its Seraphu y’all

    No joke I sincerely hope that when USUM comes out, Celesteela just rocketing itself into the fucking sky becomes a meme. It looks hilarious and I have no idea why

  • Monkeyfuzz

    Some bits of information I’m not sure have been posted yet https://twitter.com/wwwwwwzx/status/929822563013767168
    Also evolution method spoiler evolving Cubone, Pikachu and Exeggcute into their Kanto/original evolved forms seems to be Ultra Wormhole related, as in you go to a certain one and evolve them there they will be Kanto instead of Alolan.
    Moveset changes, remember CTRL+F to search a ‘mon https://pastebin.com/raw/QAx7wUfX

    • I think they might be distributing too many moves now

      Of what it looks like, every Flying type plus a few non-Flying can all learn Defog now, as well as a ton seem to now get Throat Chop (So Weavile and Incineroar are no longer special at all for this move)

      • Monkeyfuzz

        There are some waste moves tutorable now too, Bind and Covet mostly.

      • Farfetch’d is viable now, it got First Impression added on

        • Monkeyfuzz

          It always was, everyone was too blind too see it.

    • PikaPerfect

      what does that mean, though? is it that if you go into a wormhole, you can’t reset for shinies, you just have to try agian, or what?

      • Monkeyfuzz

        Yes, but not for Legendaries/UBs. The Wormhole for non-legends will either appear shiny before you enter and thus be a shiny or not in which case it will never be, apparently.

        • PikaPerfect

          ah okay
