Default Pokémon General Thread

I think we could do with keeping discussion of Pokémon to the one thread. We already have a thread for one of the Pokémon movies, but I wanted to share a link here because it's available to watch on the official Pokémon website for free right now:

Pokémon the Movie: I Choose You

It's a re-telling of the original story so I'm expecting some amount of nostalgia.

Pokéstuff to look forward to in 2018: moar Pokémon Switch news. I'm excited to hear more about it since it'll be the first HD Pokémon game and the second screen is gone for Switch.

It'll be the first main Pokemon title to be on a home-console(even though Switch is part Console part handheld) too.

If we're lucky, we might be seeing the 8th Generation game next year and then a (Finally) remake of Diamond and Pearl games.

I've yet to see the new Pokemon Movie trailer that came out a couple of days ago, but I wish they kept Ash's eye design the same as at least the "I Choose You" film. His eyes in this new one are too big.

Surprisingly, this month is a Pokemon Mania and here's why:

The delayed English Dub episodes of Sun and Moon(now titled as Ultra Adventures world-wide) in a couple of weeks, and in those same weeks, the English and full version of Detective Pikachu comes out as the VERY last Pokemon 3DS game.

Rumour: Pokémon Switch will be a reboot of the franchise.

Bitch I am so down for this. 800 Pokémon now

Seriously? Rebooting the entire franchise for Switch? Well, I guess 800 is enough for them to finally say stop making more titles and just decide to restart from scratch.

But seriously, how can this be rebooted if they already made Remakes from Red and Blue to Ruby and Sapphire and still haven't remade Diamond and Pearl? Not that I'm against in not making any more Pokemon species since 800 is a bit too much and I think they've finally ran out of ideas of newer Pokemon.

I'm just not certain how this will turn out. But then again, this rumor might be false.

"Reboot" is kind of vague - does it mean a complete reset, Gen 5/Black and White style deal (no old Pokemon during the main story), return to Kanto, major gameplay changes, or something else? I highly doubt they'd get rid of all (or any) of the previous Pokemon. I'd definitely welcome changing the mechanics up, though. Nothing against the series' formula, but I'd be disappointed if Pokemon Switch turns out to be essentially just a prettier-looking 3DS game. At the very least I'm hoping it'll be less linear.

Or maybe a change in storyline since it all began more than 20 years ago? At this point, none of us know for certain yet, and I doubt the new game will be out this year. 2019 sounds more likely for a release year.

I don't think they'll get rid of the previous Pokemon either, but maybe change the Pokemon Professors, or maybe it'll be like the Reboot/story change like the Pokemon I Choose You movie that came out last year.

I'm thinking, similiar to the Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game, the new Pokemon game will have voice acting for most human characters. Kind of like how Final Fantasy X was the very first Final Fantasy game in history to introduce voice acting.

I said this in the other thread but I think Pokemon may as well make the full transition into a full JRPG. They seemed to be heading in that direction with Sun/Moon.

I probably wouldn't mind if they added some dank fresh shit to the series, I haven't played much but I found the games after Red / Blue to be pretty much carbon copies of the originals, an' shit.

inb4 in app purchases, spend $10.000 to CATCH 'EM ALL!

I think a reboot of the games console style would be great. Obviously doesn't mean getting rid of all 800 Pokemon and starting fresh but with a console there are so many new opportunities for play to change it up. I'll only get a Switch when this is out.

Well, it comes with practice. I can think of nothing.
I do not feel the need to occupy my mind with nonsense, just to avoid thinking about what really matters.

Rumours abound that there's going to be an announcement for Pokémon Switch tomorrow. Including a Tweet from the official German Pokémon Twitter.

^I was wrong about that. HOWEVER

Various leaks today (and a domain name registration) for Pokémon Let's Go! Eevee and Pokémon Let's Go! Pikachu, along with this tweet from Matsuda.

Everything points to Kanto, the rumour is a post-apocalyptic Kanto.

And yet still one core RPG game to be announced later on. This may be what gets a switch for me later this year. Comes out day after my birthday
