    The Tapu being found in the DLC in Galar is a really weird and random thing. The Regis I get and I can see the other Legendaries fitting into the DLC and Galar but the Tapu? They’re heavily associated and important to Alola. Why would Hawaiian based deities be found naturally in Galar?

    The Regis were heavily associated and important to Hoenn and then they showed up again in parts of Sinnoh, Unova, and Alola/Ultra Space.

    Dialga and Palkia and Giratina were heavily associated and important to Sinnoh and they've showed up in Hoenn and Alola/Ultra Space.

    The list goes on. It doesn't especially matter how "heavily associated" the Legendaries are to their region (aren't most of them "heavily associated" to their regions?) when the point is that the Legendaries are being gathered so you can catch a bunch of them in one place.

    Why are any Legendary Pokémon appearing? This is no different than Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire's catch every Legendary through soaring and Ultra Sun and Moon's catch every Legendary through Ultra Space. It's just a gimmik to make them easily accessible with little bearings on lore.

    Is there any news on whether or not the new MD will function like EOS? Where you could recruit fully evolved pokemon on dungeons as this wasn't a thing in the original Red and Blue MD but given this has megas now it could be possible?

    The only news on the game is what we saw in the Direct and in the demo, so no, nothing yet.

    My personal guess is that they will clean up many of the more archaic mechanics of Rescue Team and at least bring it up to date with Explorers.

    This wasn't mentioned due to chaos of the last direct, but apparently Fairy-types will no longer be represented in TCG. Instead, they will be integrated into Psychic-type.

    This also means we aren't going to much Fairy-type support in the main games in the future like Fairy-type legendaries.

    This also means there won't be a type to get the Dragon-type treatment in Gen 9.

    That’s some what confusing. I get that the Fairy type is associated with magic but they are better on their own as a unique TCG typing. Why is that there can’t be any extra Pokémon Types in the TGC outside of the original five?

    I don't play the TCG much these days, but I find this a little disappointing regardless. I dislike it when they introduce new ideas to the card game, only to drop them a few years later. I honestly liked that Fairy-types had their own color scheme before, so the fact that they'll get bumped down to sharing the Psychic-type TCG typing is somewhat sad.

    Wow, that's obnoxious. It's ridiculous enough that there are still types missing in the card game, and now they go and decide to make even less types? How does that make the slightest bit of sense?

    How does it mean that in the slighest? This is the card game we're talking about. It has little, if any, bearing on the video games. The lack of Dragon, Bug, Rock, Ground, Ghost, and Poison Types in the card game never meant anything to games, so why would the lack of a Fairy-Type mean anything?

    I take it by your response you haven't seen the card game in a while? Dragon and Fairy have their own types in gold and pink colorings in previous iterations. Also poison-types are now under the darkness variant of cards meaning a lot of cards played around poison are going to be synergized with the darkness cards as opposed to previously being the psychic and grass cards.

    What in the actual heck?! That makes absolutely no sense.

    I think you misunderstood my post. I know fully well that Dragon and Fairy exist in the card game. That's why I'm annoyed by them removing the Fairy-Type. Can't really be annoyed by them removing something that never existed in the first place, can I? I did mention Dragon as a type that doesn't exist, but I meant that in a historical sense, as the Dragon-Type was no more or less relevant in the games before the introduction of the Dragon-Type in card game. I also know about the Poison-Type change, but I'm not really sure why you brought it up.

    By your previous comment, it sounded like you were really late to the party. I brought up poison-types because that it is in my opinion the biggest change since many poison-type cards, regardless if it's grass or psychic, often have moves related to the poison ailment which is fairly popular in many TCG metas and will substantially boost the options of darkness cards.

    So has anyone noticed that Klara's bow looks like a Dustox?

    If anyone has, can we discuss the coloration? Maybe Galarian Dustox is pure Poison and can Gigantamax?

    Gigantamax Toxtricity has been revealed. Now you too can have the high ground!

    Gigantamax Toxtricity looks interesting. I like that it gets an "actual" guitar when it attacks. Wish that it got one when it was idle as well.

    I wished that GMAX Toxtricity is the final evolution as opposed to a giant.
