    LF: Galarian Darmanitan Trade options: Ponyta, Eiscue (and do other SH exclusives if given enough time to catch them).

    The new fossil Pokémon

    Missed opportunity? Ha. It's called Ultra Sw/Sh, buddy. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if the completed versions are introduced in the expanded version of the game. I get the in game lore behind how misshapen they are, and they look weird, and it's funny. So I'm not that opposed to these, but...

    What Featues Would You Like the Games to Focus On?

    In order of my preferences: 1. More Pokemon: Gen VI and Gen VII had very few Pokemon, I wanted another Gen III or Gen V, where were were introduced to multiple Pokemon of different types. 2. Mega Evolution: I understand their concerns, many Pokemon that have received Mega Evolutions did not...

    Gen 8 Region Hopes and Dreams

    On the issue of TMs, they can be earned through completing sidequests or being found throughout the region, much like they are now. Ultra Sun/Moon introduced many sidequests that weren't actually very useful in expanding gameplay, which typically in JRPGs sidequests, mainly in part because all...

    Side Quests and Mini Games

    Ultra Sun and Moon had a lot more sidequests and it's something I hope this game continues. The one big drawback to the sidequests in these games is that the rewards weren't really that useful, because the game kept most of the important stuff, such as TMs, to be acquired in the more traditional...

    Gen 8 Freedom of Travel Discussion Thread (Sinnoh + Breath of the WIld Mechanics)

    That presumes that difficulty can only be determined by level differences, but even the game doesn't adhere to that because you have areas like the Battle Tree where all Pokemon have the same level, and there is still a range when it comes to the difficulty based on the moveset and Pokemon they...

    Boss Rush Mode Discussion Thread (Ex. Gym Leader Castle or World Tournament)

    The omissions of Elite Four members but the inclusion of Champions, with no explanation as to why that was case, was very confusing to me in B/W2. I think a bringing back the World Tournament with all past Gym Leaders, Elite Four members, Frontier Brains, and special NPCs, such a rivals, the...

    Gen 8 Freedom of Travel Discussion Thread (Sinnoh + Breath of the WIld Mechanics)

    There's absolutely no reason why the difficulty of the NPC cannot be more stressed based on their class with getting rid of the level system, or taking a dramatic shift of it. Already Ace Trainers and Veterans use a somewhat more complicated battle strategy, and Youngsters have much weaker...

    Gen 8 Region Hopes and Dreams

    Honestly, the only direct sources of cash in the game I would like is some initial starter money, defeating the gyms, maybe a couple of treasure boxes, and the Elite Four when you initially become champion. Any other source of revenue would have to be traded in for items found, like the Relic...

    Gen 8 Region Hopes and Dreams

    One wish I had is that I hope they get rid of the idea of Pokedollars in the game, specifically the mechanic of you getting money after Pokemon battles with trainers. You just inevitably reach a point where you have so much money and nothing really to spend it on. I would much prefer if players...

    Gen 8 Freedom of Travel Discussion Thread (Sinnoh + Breath of the WIld Mechanics)

    People really aren't thinking that creatively when it comes to the freedom of travel concept. Remember, from the perspective of the player within the game itself they have freedom of travel, it only as you play the game that the developers introduce hurdles to block your passage until certain...

    Thoughts on the Upcoming Pokemon Switch Game?

    Two observations that I heard yesterday have really stuck with me about this game. The first is, if there was going to be a region/Gen that GameFreak wanted to try out a more casual experience Kanto/Gen I was the best candidate. Had we gotten a remake of D/P/Pt in this format rather than a true...

    Thoughts on the Upcoming Pokemon Switch Game?

    I agree, we have no reason to explicitly expect an open world game, just as we had no reason to expect Breath of the Wild; however, we can and should expect that the developers fully utilize the hardware. It would be weird if on the Switch rather than a game like Breath of the Wild, or even...

    Thoughts on the Upcoming Pokemon Switch Game?

    I think the point they are making is that such an open world game is what they want Gen 8 to be, and looking at comparisons if GameFreak was to make the switch, given the release window it doesn't line up seemingly with the time they have had for development. I suspect much of this is driven by...

    Thoughts on the Upcoming Pokemon Switch Game?

    I'm assuming post Gen 1 typing and moves will remain in the game; however, that will pose some problems. Steel and Dark were introduced in Gen 1 and that significantly changed the difficulty of certain battles in FR/LG, which is why in rematches the Elite Four changed somewhat. Now with the...

    Pokemon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon Recent Happenings Thread

    Sigh. With the news that Gen 8 won't be out until 2019 I'm restarting UM. Just give me something to do. It will suck as I have collected many of the Mega Stones; however, with Bank and Mantine Surf I should be able to build back a lot by the time I get to Poni Island. And this time I'll get to...

    Thoughts on the Upcoming Pokemon Switch Game?

    So I've had some time to reflect on the game, and honestly I think once I came to terms that this isn't Gen 8 and just a Pokemon for the Switch it was much easier to like it. Even though it is a remake of a core game, I'm mentally grouping this game in with other games like Conquest, Ranger...

    Thoughts on the Upcoming Pokemon Switch Game?

    There's nothing wrong in complaining that what was revealed does not meet or exceed the expectations some fans had. It doesn't do the franchise or the community a lot of good to hold as the guiding philosophy that only does that like what's presented should contribute to the conversation...

    Thoughts on the Upcoming Pokemon Switch Game?

    Probably not. There's just little reason to play this game. It's a reversion of the franchise. There's nothing inherent to the Kanto region that makes revisiting it on the Switch something that's very appealing to me. And I don't play Go religiously, and even if I did, what's the benefit of...

    Thoughts on the Upcoming Pokemon Switch Game?

    I'm inclined to sit this one out. This game seems much more inclined to casual players and consumers that only got into Gen I when it came out, rather than more invested fans of the franchise. I just don't see the point to revisit Kanto as the initial entry into the Switch, it's a lack luster...
