    Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Speculation/Discussion Thread!

    Porygon-Z made a brief appearance in today's trailer, though I'd feel even better if we saw evidence that it (and other Platinum Dex additions) are available before the post-game. I'd forgotten about this before browsing images today, but apparently the Eterna City statue was always a Dialga +...

    Sinnoh Dex 3.0 Speculation Thread

    Yeah, based on how they've described these games so far, I expect they'll be similar to LGPE with regard to which species are usable: Platinum regional Dex only, mayyybe with some Galarian forms and already-exisiting Megas thrown in. I'd love to be wrong, though! The fact that they didn't show...

    Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Speculation/Discussion Thread!

    Nice catch! I wouldn't be surprised if they added certain Platinum elements like Looker and allowing us to challenge Fantina 3rd...but I'm not getting my hopes up for the Frontier after ORAS. Incorporating Platinum into the climax is a bit trickier, since I imagine they want it to be distinct...

    Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Speculation/Discussion Thread!

    "Hate" is a strong word, but the choice to use such a drastically different style from the preceding main series games for these remakes is unprecedented and definitely disappointing for me. Having wandered around the Crown Tundra in recent months, I was really excited by the possibility of...

    6th Gen Nuzlocke Challenge Thread!

    Omega Ruby Wonderlocke 2019: • Zorua became our first ally to reach Lv. 50 and our final B-team member (alongside Linoone, Pelipper, Breloom, and Lopunny) to fully evolve, after mauling Mysterious Sisters Scall & Ion aboard Sea Mauville. • Shelgon finally achieved liftoff after brutalizing...

    6th Gen Nuzlocke Challenge Thread!

    Omega Ruby Wonderlocke 2019: • Machoke achieved maximum musculature after crushing Courtney's Camerupt atop Mt. Pyre. This was a pretty proud moment, since Machoke's been around for all six Gyms thus far and essentially became my de facto "starter" once I decided to let Linoone live the easy...

    6th Gen Nuzlocke Challenge Thread!

    Omega Ruby Wonderlocke 2019: PETALBURG CITY GYM: Unfortunately, some simple strategizing made my long-awaited showdown with my father at the Petalburg Gym pretty anti-climactic. Shelgon's recent evolution in Lavaridge Town equipped him with "Protect," which provided the perfect tool to upend...

    New Pokemon Speculation & Discussion Thread

    While its design is somewhat stylized for that logo, I really hope a new Pokémon wouldn't look THAT similar to Pelipper: same bill, same two little feet sticking out the back, same wings that split into exactly three blue "digits." Slurpuff was the mascot of Alola's malasada shops despite not...

    New Pokemon Speculation & Discussion Thread

    Eh, that logo looks a LOT like Pelipper (especially the bill shape and blue-tipped wings). We also know that Wingull/Pelipper are definitely in the Galar Dex.

    Which Pokémon Do You Want To See Return In The Galar Regional Dex?

    You can see wild Pumpkaboo around 0:18-0:20 in the Japanese version of the newest trailer.

    GALAR REGION Discussion & Speculation Thread

    Based on exterior shots from the official site, it appears to be in that Diglett/Dugtrio-statue city (surprisingly enough). Everything matches up with the Galar map: accessed by a big staircase, surrounded by water, path leading upward off to the left...

    The Isle of Armor & The Crown Tundra DLC - RUMOR & SPECULATION Thread [Spoilers]

    Do you mean Gigantamaxing? The thus-far-very-credible leak mentioned that Lapras, Meowth, and Pikachu have Gigantamax forms too. If accurate, that also means Pokémon don't have to be in their final evolutionary stage to have a Gigantamax form.

    Gen 8 Gym Types and Structure Speculation Thread

    Eh, I wouldn't worry too much, since I think the headband comparison is a bit of a stretch (all that black would be an odd way to reference very-white-Scorbunny). The only time a Gym Leader has ever used one of their region's starter Pokémon was Gardenia's Turtwig in the infamously-small Sinnoh...

    Gen 8 Gym Types and Structure Speculation Thread

    Per usual, the Japanese version of the latest trailer has a bunch of cool extra scenes, including Bea using a Hitmontop: Based on the first few scenes with the fireworks, it looks like that rose-shaped stadium will be where the Champion Cup takes place.

    Gen 8 Gym Types and Structure Speculation Thread

    It's a little weird that most Gyms have that very specific stadium style while a few others might not, but the official site does mention 8 Gyms/Badges: The Gym Challenge is a true celebration of Pokémon battling! Participating Trainers strive to collect all eight Gym Badges, and only Pokémon...

    Gen 8 Gym Types and Structure Speculation Thread

    It seems a lot like the anime Leagues: Once a year in the Galar region, a series of Pokémon battles are held with the League Championship on the line. This is the Champion Cup! The Champion Cup is the tournament to decide who will be able to challenge the reigning Champion for their seat...

    Gen 8 Gym Types and Structure Speculation Thread

    Yup, looks right to me too. They definitely threw us a curveball there, since it seemed like everyone (myself included) expected that one to be Ground (maaaybe Rock or Steel).

    Gen 8 Gym Types and Structure Speculation Thread

    The official site shows the setting of Bea/Allister's Gym, and it definitely doesn't look like that mushroom-filled forest. The people speculating that mushroom-forest Gym may be dual-typed might've been onto something, though: maybe it's another version-exclusive Gym (like Fairy for Sword and...

    Eeveelution Wishlist Thread

    That's a great observation! People often fixate on the "even-Generation-pattern" for new Eeveelutions, but what you mentioned makes a lot of sense: Espeon & Umbreon = both of time-of-day and Friendship (not counting the rudimentary partner Pikachu-exclusive variation) were new in Gen II...

    Which Pokemon deserve an evolution/pre-evolution?

    Hmmm...I'd actually expect the opposite, given that Tangrowth, Leafeon, and especially Lickilicky all look pretty different from their early versions in that GS beta.
