    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 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...

    Old Characters in PM2019

    My hopes: -Gary appears as the Viridian City Gym Leader -Iris appears as the Unova Champion Not sure if they'll decide to follow the games so closely, but it'd be really great if they did.

    January 8th: PM2019 050 - Galar Fossils! Stick 'em Together!!

    So, Cara Liss appears. Since I first saw the title, I expected her to appear. After all, it was her in the games who came up with the whole idea of combining Fossils and made a machine for that (bringing pain and suffering to the Pokemon world...). Of course, the anime doesn't always have to...

    November 27th: PM2019 047 - Pokémon Champion! The Battle of Big Eaters!!

    Shame that the episode takes place in Vermillion. It should be Celadon - it has a restaurant that holds an eating contest in the games. Such a wasted opportunity to visit a different Kanto town.

    Pocket Monsters (2019) Speculation Thread

    It's nothing more than a gut feeling... but something tells me that Journeys is gonna jump the shark after the "Sword & Shield" arc. Not sure if it'll be for better or for worse, but I'd expect a change in the series formula... just when I started to grow to like it.

    August 23rd: PM2019 034 - Saito, the Lone Warrior! The Otosupus Menace!!

    To me, the Karate Master having four disciples is an interesting information (but yeah, most people probably don't care). Why? Because it implies a high fidelity toward the games, where there were four Trainers (aside from the Master) in the Dojo, the Blackbelts named Hideki, Hitoshi, Mike and...

    August 23rd: PM2019 034 - Saito, the Lone Warrior! The Otosupus Menace!!

    Well, aside from different names, nothing really suggests they're separate. NPCs from different regions constantly mention the Karate Master from Saffron City as a much-idolized Fighting-type Trainer. Hell, he even appears in person in Kalos. He's actually one of the most-referenced Kanto...

    August 23rd: PM2019 034 - Saito, the Lone Warrior! The Otosupus Menace!!

    This episode's got my interest because of Saffron City Karate Master being there. Will he be Kiyo (from Johto), Hamm (from Kanto Battle Frontier) or someone else because... screw continuity? Even in the games his identity is problematic, as he is known as Koichi in Kanto-based games and Kiyo in...

    June Plot Discussion

    You've probably forgotten that Hidenori Kusaka x Emiko Yoshino mangas exist (for core and spin-off games alike). They were one-shots but as far as I know, there were also some two- or even three-chaptered ones. Although they stopped making them years ago and those that got released are...
