    Zoruagible Lover of underrated characters

    Too soon imo

    That stuff should apply to the old mythicals like Mew, Celebi, Deoxys, Jirachi, Shaymin, Darkrai.... stuff that rarely shows up anymore(Outside of Japan)

    If they are sticking true to Gaelic and Celtic fae mythology of the british isles, then we'll have one cover legend who is part Fairy and one who is part Steel. Perhaps Grass/Fairy and Poison/Steel?

    So a steel wolf? That would be a sight to see...

    I can't see much of Wales which is dissapointing. Really hope we get some different Accents in the NPC script.
    Hopefully we also get visit the Elite Fours hometowns. Maybe we can have a Celtic Elite four since the Map seems to be heavily inspired by UK but mostly England. Also Hope we can travel to Ireland or Kalos postgame since while the map is big, it seems like most of it will mandatory in the main game. Hopefully we can pick and choose which parts we go to first?

    I am pretty certain in terms of the Stadiums/Gyms - this is how it's going to turn out:

    Right now my bets are on:

    1st Stadium: Fire
    2nd Stadium: Grass
    3rd Stadium: Water
    4th Stadium: Ground
    5th Stadium: Fairy
    6th Stadium: Ice
    7th Stadium: Dragon
    8th Stadium: Steel

    If so would he be a gym leader or Elite four?

    Wasn't his dream to be a gym leader? Imho he'd be a pretty good Dragon Gym leader and it's kind of nice to see characters from older games in newer ones.

    I'd be happy with that. Dragon types are overdone for the E4 to be honest. I would like him not to be a late Gym leader though.

    I really hope we get more dynamic weather in these games. It'd be cool if rain, sun and even hail could happen in any route and wasn't just static in certain places, and if it affected encounters. Not hugely, just make certain Pokemon appear more frequently in certain conditions, and have a handful that are exclusive to specific weather. Also, bring back the day/night cycle affecting counters. I've always felt that stuff like that made the region feel more 'alive'.

    You can count on rain for sure. UK is known for always being rainy. So the game will be like XY in that aspect, that one also had these random spurts of rain happening which you needed to evolve sliggoo

    My guess with the day/night cycle encounter is that they discontinued them after Gen II as to not encourage children playing the game to stay up past their bed time trying to catch nocturnal Pokemon.

    It was brought back in Gen IV and VII though.

    In my defense I never played Gen IV.

    But woah...I totally forgot that and I even had Shiinotic on my team in a couple of playthroughs...

    the region is kinda small though... i can only count around 10 cities/communities.

    They usually don’t release the full map on day one. There’s probably more to the region (Ireland or a Kalos visit) than what they’re showing now.

    there are buildings in the trailer that aren't on the map, so it's most likely not like the alola map, which was a 1:1 representation

    Plus, some of those towns/communities look pretty big.

    I would love for that to be an option post-game. The Pokémon games have all been sorely lacking in post-game content since Gen VI so I hope Sword and Sun compensate for that.

    Oh my Arceus

    They finally based a region off Westeros!
