    Pokémon Sun and Moon - General Discussion Thread

    Pokemon hasn't been much of a world building series. There's traces of it here and there, more so in the last 2 gens, but it's never all that cohesive or conclusive. For something like AZ's Floette, the explanation could be as simple as them changing the ending up a bit. Perhaps the original...

    Pokémon Sun and Moon - General Discussion Thread

    Yeah, Gen 2 was a rather unique situation in general. I've read that it was Iwata who compressed G/S enough for them to fit the Kanto region in the first place. My pet theory is that by the time Iwata made more room for them, the design of the Johto region was close to completion. So rather than...

    Pokémon Sun and Moon - General Discussion Thread

    I don't think you're fully grasping what I mean by recycled assets. In S/M, all the Pokemon models can be expected to take around 1.3, maybe 1.4 GB in total. Now let's assume they decide to make a second region. What else would they need to add? Not the Pokemon models again, because they're...

    Pokémon Sun and Moon - General Discussion Thread

    I don't know about a second region being impossible based on file size alone. X/Y and OR/AS were both shy of 2 GB and supposedly a good half of their file size is attributed to the high quality Pokemon models. Assuming this is an accurate account, that means everything else that takes up...

    Pokémon Sun & Moon - Hopes and Wish lists

    While IVs as they were (i.e. unchangeable) makes sense from a purely casual standpoint, there's an undeniable competitive crowd that puts the work into perfecting IVs and releasing everything that falls below perfection. With the continued emphasis on multiplayer and the perception of perfect...

    Pokémon Sun and Moon - General Discussion Thread

    It's not impossible, but I just don't expect Game Freak to give us too much at once anymore. The impression I get from them based on their past decisions is that they're more than willing to milk their fanbase. If they were going to put in that effort to renovate Kalos, they could very well have...

    Pokémon Sun and Moon - General Discussion Thread

    Indeed, with how open and organic the Alola region looks, Kalos as it was in X/Y would look pretty bad in comparison. They'd have to do some redesigning, give it some new textures, make models for all the chibi NPCs, and rework the camera too.

    Pokémon Sun & Moon - Hopes and Wish lists

    To be fair, that could be interpreted as PR speak. OR/AS just came out so they were mainly focused in talking about decisions specific to OR/AS. It's similar to how they justified the exclusion of character customization in OR/AS. Rather than saying it might be back in a future game, they...

    Pokémon Sun & Moon - Hopes and Wish lists

    The main thing I'm hoping for is that the Battle Tree does enough to feel more like the PWT than just another Battle Tower variant. Ideally it will include all past gym leaders, champions, protagonists, major antagonists, and frontier brains, as well as having a variety of modes, including...

    ~ Official Pokémon News Discussion Thread ~ [POST POKEMON NEWS HERE]

    Eh, Black/White and X/Y were pretty simple too. The thing I'm most curious about, assuming this is true, is the what the cover mascots will look like.

    Digimon discussion - Digimon Ghost Game now available on Crunchyroll

    Just for your information, Adventure 02 is awful. After the new Adventure series was announced, I marathoned the first 2 seasons. Adventure stands the test of time really well, and I loved it just as much as when I was little. 02 on the other hand... was a painful experience. It lacks the...

    Naruto and Boruto Discussion Thread

    Once again, I'm going to have to ask for a source. The last ANN article I read points out that a "new mini-series by Kishimoto" "will launch next spring."

    Naruto and Boruto Discussion Thread

    Point taken. That said, too often, "losing fights" isn't necessarily a reason for it being better. It's the nature of a shounen to have the protagonists win in the end, and I'm one of those who prefer it when an author doesn't beat around the bushes. Powerful attacks that seem like they can...

    Where has this been confirmed? I see several sites saying it, but none of them have linked to a proper source.

    Naruto and Boruto Discussion Thread

    The main characters of One Piece have plot armour too. There have been many instances where the straw hat crew could have lost members, but didn't because it'd inconvenient the plot. As a shounen, it's not much better than Naruto. Both of them can be insanely good when they peak, and both of...

    Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire: Expectations & Desires? [Not a speculation thread]

    It can really go either way. I mean sure, there are some things that have stayed true to R/S, but we also know that Rayquaza will be involved in the story, move tutors will be present, and there's dialogue from the text dump that seems to be similar to what the Apprentice (an Emerald exclusive...

    Naruto and Boruto Discussion Thread

    The mini-series, focusing on the children, will be written by Kishi. That said, there seems to be a series of novels too, the first one about Kakashi, that will be written by the dude who wrote the Blood Prison movie.

    Digimon discussion - Digimon Ghost Game now available on Crunchyroll

    The episode count for the Adventure sequel remains unconfirmed. With the focus being high school, romance is inevitable. If there was no basis for shipping in the first two Adventure series, there will be soon.

    Naruto and Boruto Discussion Thread

    I hear a lot of comments about Kishimoto selling out, and quite frankly, as someone who has followed this series for 11 years, I don't get it. The story really took a nosedive in quality after the Invasion of Pain arc, but everything after Kaguya's defeat has been solid enough to make me fall...
