Eternal Floette is still my pie in the sky, but more realistically probably some random gen 8 pokemon. Maybe just a cute mascot type, maybe something with connection to Zeraora, maybe just some rando that's not really important but gets screentime because it's really new.
Barring that I could see...Suicune. Suicune had increased importance due to Crystal, Crystal relreased this year and they could play up the very-slight suicune imagry Johto seasons toyed with. Actually now that I've written that out, Celebi would make sense too.
he's using it as an example in that context - they're not gonna commit to including anything for Switch 2: Electric Boogaloo at this point, just because it's trendy and cool now says nothing going forward
Oh, okay. Go away. 4chan users can barely count to 10 let alone wipe their own butt. Why should anyone credible listen to them. The person who did it is 10 times smarter than anyone there and is a nice person. So don't post here ever again.
I'd imagine that they'd rather branch into different IPs instead of going back to Mario again. I'm sure Mario will get another shot at some point, since SMR's performance seems to have disappointed them, but I don't know how they'd adapt Mario Kart specifically in a way that works on mobile without encroaching upon MK8D. Party might make more sense, though it'd probably depend on whether or not Nd Cube would do mobile development
actually, I could kinda see Metroid to tie in with Samus Returns and MP4
One mythical is about what I expected. So way I see it, there's 2 options
I feel like next year will be a break year. Gamefreak is...pretty slow when it comes to adapting to new platforms, and Gen 8 has by their own admission probably going to require a change up due to the Switch's shtick. If they actually put it out by next winter I'll be genuinely surprised.
So I'm thinking Zero will be our lead (Revealed either in december or early next year), but there might be a gen 8 pokemon teased. The other "costars" I could easily see being ultra beasts or about necrozma. Rainbow ROcket would probably be an interesting anime film as well. I think it kind of depends on what hte anime does with its plotline. Inexplicable swerve and involve Eternal Floette somehow?!
I didn't find SM that easy so "still piss easy" means nothing to me.
I think the remaining new things look fine? The new mythical in particular looks fine in motion and its no more erigious than Lucario or zoroark
Yeah, I think the first option would be the way to go, with the Year 3 game being a remake or sequel of some older region. As for profitability, I wouldn't be so sure. If USUM was DLC content at a lower price, you'd have more people willing to buy it, so there would be an increase in sales to offset the lower price.
I mean, that almost defeats the purpose of dual versions.
I'd rather Pokemon go the New Super Luigi U/Mario Kart 8 Deluxe route. Release the updated version as DLC for the original version but also provide a bundle of the original game + DLC. That'd probably be the most economical way for Game Freak to go about doing DLC.
Having typed that out I think the gen 2 starters will be fully replaced regardless. After all, GS on vc are right there. Maybe swap in the gen 4 starters since they're the biggest pain to get at this point
I think people expecting more than 100 were a bit...lofty in their expectations.
I'm still thinking it will be the 84 island scan pokemon formally added to the dex (I mean...you can capture them just fine during hte main adventure. little silly!)+ the 2 new UBs (who in the alola dex i assume will come before necorzma and not after) + a smattering of other pokemon
If we assume Mantine's line, remoraid's line by extension, and Meinfoo's line are all in that'd leave 8 spaces.
If the island scan pokemon are added to the wild encounter tables instead of staying island scans, I could see the gen 2 & 5 starters swapped out for other pokemon, though, so that'd give another 18. Also if they are removed from Island scan, I can see all the pokemon being replaced with another 28 families.
