    The Future of the World Championships

    My predictions for the final matches (considering that it's a Tournament format, though I still have a little hope for Round-Robin format). Quarterfinals: Ash vs. Iris - Ash wins Alain vs. Steven - Alain wins Leon vs. Lance - Leon wins Cynthia vs. Diantha - Cynthia wins Semifinals: Ash vs...

    Who will Ash defeat in the Masters 8 tournament?

    I wonder what system will the battles be held. If it's a tournament with quarter-finals, semi-finals and the final, then I guess Ash's opponents are obvious - Iris, Alain and Leon, probably in this order. The rest seem to be just "background NPCs" and they seem to be there mostly for flavor. I...

    Isle Coronis

    This work feels underappreciated, which is sad considering Coronis's great contributions to the Pokemon manga fandom. The art is nice, smooth and feels quite "real". Also, Coronis's great understanding of the series sure helps. While the dream of an official Pokemon Special-based animation...

    November 19th: PM2019 088 - Trial Mission! The Deep Sea Diver Research Team!!

    Drake? Wow, didn't expect that. Of course, I'd prefer if they showed someone else from Hoenn Elite Four, but after 90 episodes I don't expect Journeys to debut any not-seen-before game character anymore. It's deluded at this point. But still, Drake is nice.

    Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Speculation/Discussion Thread!

    Except she had both in DP, so that's no indication. Let's be true, Snover pretty much confirms DP teams. Any other option possibility is very unlikely at this point. If they did anything with the Gym Leader teams, then getting rid of repeated mons (by "repeats" I also mean Pokemon from the same...

    Volume 60 Discussion

    Glad that Chatelaines appeared, pity they feel so shoehorned. Maybe they'll get some more screentime in future volume? Also, those Gurkinn's successors with Megas (apparently known as "Mega Evolution brothers"?) have names - Peeshu-kun (ペーシュくん) - the Medicham one, Iire-kun (イーレくん) - the...

    October 8th: PM2019 083 - The Py That Became A Star

    For another time, I hate the fact that the episode takes place in some nondescript location that's supposed to be Johto. Couldn't they set it somewhere near Mt. Moon (maybe show Mt. Moon Square for the first time?) or in the Ruins of Alph, if Unown are involved. That would be in Johto and would...

    Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Speculation/Discussion Thread!

    I don't see how the content of the game is an obstacle in creating pre-release hype. It's not like the pre-release coverage of previous remakes was that centered around new content. Most of pre-release stuff was new artworks and presentation of familliar characters, plots and mechanics. Some new...

    Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Speculation/Discussion Thread!

    So, there is this bonus for preordering the Double Pack in some select shops in France. You can get two of each Apricorn Balls in the game, among other goodies. Why am I posting this, if the whole thing looks France-exclusive (didn't find any evidence of such bonus in other countries) and this...

    Pokemon Evolutions: Series of shorts

    This looks... pretty promising, I must say. I am especially happy with how many "alternate animes" we got this gen. Poketoons, Twilight Wings, the GOTCHA video (if it counts) and now this. I hope the trend continues and we will be getting more of these in the future. Especially that 2022 will...

    Legends: Arceus - General Speculation/Discussion Thread

    I have mixed feelings about the fact that the region is named Hisui. At one hand, I like it, because it's a reference to how the real-life Hokkaido was also renamed. Before 1869, its name was Ezo. At the other hand, I feel that they did it to throw most of the present/past equivalencies out of...

    September 3rd: PM2019 079 - The Moon and the Sun; Koharu and Haruhi

    I have a feeling that the Journeys series is backing out from its "multi-regional" format. I mean, they are not even trying to reference past games and series anymore. First we got the Cresselia/Darkrai two-parter set in some random unnamed town in Sinnoh, now they're giving us some non-existent...

    Upcoming Manga release thread

    I will never understand why are Viz's releases so slow. They did translate most of those chapters once already as part of the mini-volumes... This is literally 90% of the work already done. They are already left far behind by French and German releases and at this rate, this gap will get even...

    No Pokespe this month. Kusaka-sensei is unwell.

    Yeah, this has happened earlier... In 2012 and before. Since then, times have changed a lot, both Pokemon and E3 have evolved a bit, to the point that the two have been considered as somehow intertwinned, with one being one of Nintendo's flagship franchises and the other its most important event...

    No Pokespe this month. Kusaka-sensei is unwell.

    And I hope this isn't something worse, 'cause covid isn't the only disease out there, nor is it the deadliest one. Hell, first the newsless E3 and now this. I can't help thinking that something bad is happening to this franchise. I know, I know there's absolutely no connection between the two...
