    The Pokemon series sure is undergoing a lot of shifts right?

    Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu & Eevee would be the last time Junichi Masuda would serve as Game Director, the Pokemon main series games are going to launch on home consoles for the very first time, the Pokedex roster is getting cut for the first time since Gen 3's Ruby & Sapphire, Ash finally won a Pokemon League and the very first and longest running Pokemon adaptation, the Pocket Monsters manga, is finally coming to an end after 23 years.

    Oh yeah. I think I should probably mention this but from what I'm hearing the Pocket Monsters manga apparently pulled a Gintama on everyone. It's continuing lol. As in, it's not ending.

    I just felt like pointing out this quick pattern:

    Red/Green - 1996 | 8 years later | FireRed/LeafGreen - 2004
    Gold/Silver - 1999 | 10 years later | HeartGold/SoulSilver - 2009
    Ruby/Sapphire - 2002 | 12 years later | OmegaRuby/AlphaSapphire - 2014
    Diamond/Pearl - 2006 | 14 years later..? | 2020?

    Probably doesn't mean anything but yeah... there's a pattern going on!

    Oh my.... I totally forgot... it fits with the pattern but what would this mean for the DP remakes? 2022?

    It doesn't especially mean anything for potential future remakes. Maybe 2022 or whatever sees remakes released, but they would have been positioned for that year entirely independent of how many years had elapsed since their source material.

    It is, as you said, not an especially meaningful or predictive pattern, if pattern we insist it be.

    I've noticed some consistency here. You often step in when the possibility of remakes are announced, any possibility really. So am I to conclude the possibility that you will never ever consider any future remakes unless it is officially announced? As in consistent trends, rumors, pretty much anything really does not matter at all to you. Only what GameFreak announces. And if I am right, your objective here is to pretty much consistently remind people that none of this matters unless GameFreak says so. So for every potential remake thread that happens, your expected to be there and call it pointless? If not the case, then what is the point of such consistent comments?

    Keep in mind this thread is for actual news. And this ain't it.

    From left to right, Platinum's original DP design and her later Pt design.

    Today marks October 27th, Platinum's birthday in Pokemon Adventures. Happy Birthday Ms. Berlitz!

    Yesterday, Pokemon Duel officially shut down, meaning that no one can play it.

    Just found this out from @lolipiece , but we finally get to see some sketches of what the protagonists of Pokemon Adventures Sword & Shield will look like who are based on the game characters and... hmm. The girl character, Shield. She looks less like an angry scottish lass from the comics and more like... Dawn from the anime lol. I am perfectly fine with that.

    So this is pretty cool news. @e9310103838 is the first to show this pic here, a clearer look of the protagonists of Pokemon Adventures Sword & Shield.

    So... I tried going to Global link with my Ultra Sun account but the code for Fennel's Munna didn't show up. It's said my game doesn't quality. Haven't tested vanila SM though

    Was able to reclaim Fennel's Munna for all three of my Gen 7 games (Sun, Moon and Ultra Sun). Apparently the Munna appears to be natured locked to Mild, soft-resetted my Ultra Sun game a few times and the Munna still had the same nature.

    I had to Google what this was since I hadn't even heard about it before. Apparently it was some sort of mobile game? I guess it must not have been very popular, or perhaps it was simply overshadowed by the release of Pokemon GO and Pokemon Masters.

    So the main site mentions a book about the new anime series being sold in Pokémon Centers that gives items no SwSh.

    Does it reveal the book's name? I'm interested on hunting it via my usual "middle men" stores for all Japan-exclusive releases

    No mention of a name yet but I’m sure it will be revealed very soon.

    This one is a week old, but apparently in SwSh, Poison has been changed to Darkness.

    They were originally Grass, then changed to Psychic in Majestic Dawn and it seems now they are Darkness (Dark-type equivalent in TCG).

    It was inevitable that we would see a type change for TCG in this gen, but I didn't expect to be this. I was hoping another case like Dragon, where one of the unused types would become its own thing in TCG. But this works too.

    As a minor side note, V-MAX mechanic also includes regular Dynamax Pokémon, though PokéBeach has noted this in their original post.

    Regardless, hopefully we will see another unused type introduction in Gen 9 for the TCG like Bug/Ice/Ghost/Flying or Poison. By then it will be the time to do so.
