    Would be amazing (although it would mean a long space between some gyms, I guess) if some plots of the story require us to travel to Kalos (if it appears) and back. For example, the main villain of the new region is causing things, but Team Flare does something in Kalos that affects this new region and it forces us to go there and fix some issues there to be able to proceed. :D

    However, that would mean a lot of travelling (which can be fixed with trains) and big spaces of no gym and such.

    I'm late seeing the news but WOW. I was not expecting anything to be leaked/revealed/whatever you want to call this. I would've bet on us getting a Pokémon Z, but I guess I'm wrong. I guess the theory that sounds the most, uh, sound to me is the one where these games take place in a new part of Kalos/a region connected to Kalos, of which Zygarde also effects. It has gotten to much attention to not have a major role in these games. But we won't have to theorize a little over 14 hours from now. I'm so pumped up for this!!!!!

    A "difficulty" option would fix part of that. Would be nice for Pokemon to finally have it.

    And you can just turn off EXP share. Nobody's making you use it.

    Lysandre's dead and Xerosic's reformed, I forget what the girls were doing after the game. Nobody's around to pick up the pieces, unless we get an evil female leader for once, Malva perhaps.

    I looked at the font with the Sun/Moon logos, and they look like they are going back to B/W aesthetics, rather than the abstract X/Y.

    My lines of thinking was that we could see a new team with a new leader, etc. We beat them in the new region. The leader vanishes...

    We then go over to Kalos, beat the first three or four gyms, and then you hear whispers of an evil team (Flare) that's re-emerging. However, when you start to investigate, you stumble upon the leader of the new team...as a Flare Executive. He can be the new face of Flare, serving under the injured Lysandre, who will come into the plot later on. Team Flare also had quite a bit of money when you think about it: team members paid to join, their base was in the middle of the most luxurious city of Kalos, etc. They could have easily funded a subsidiary team as far as I'm aware, but that's just what I'd like to see.

    The climax can be in the mountains of Southern Kalos (bordering what I hope is a Spanish region), meaning members of the new team can come back here.

    But anyways, I have a bit to say about the logos...

    I hope this takes place before XY tbh.

    Pretty sure. I didn't say Yggdrasil was Odin's horse, just that it's the Norse translation of the word.

    A bit late to the discussion but wow... that's a bit unexpected, but people still saw it coming.

    Interesting. That we're hitting Gen 7 (?) already.
    Most likely this region is the one teased by the tourist. The one with a great battle facility and the origin of the Strange Souvenir.

    A part of me still wishes that this just Z split up. XY has a lot of room for improvement.
    Well, if this is actually Gen 7, I still wish that we revisit Kalos for post-game and Episode Z.

    Obvious Solrock and Lunatone Evolutions/Megas incoming?

    Feline Why?

    If they do Sun and Moon, it could be space themed. That's my guess. Sounds pretty interesting for the 20th anniversary.

    Everlasting Everything stays.

    You know, it's interesting they would yet again take red (orange)/blue as a color scheme. Why not take something like yellow and pale purple for sun and moon ?

    If Sun and Moon happen to be real, I wouldn't jump on the Generation VII train just yet. It still could be sequels/prequels to XY. There is a lot of unexplored things in XY, I don't see how they could just go past AZ's Floette, Zygarde's two unobtainable moves and many of Zygarde's secrets showing up left and right in the anime.

    These Pokémo S&M "leaks" sound so cool. I really hope it's Zygarde, but I won't be really bothered if it is gen VII. I just want a new main game xD

    So, did Drew Barrymore organize the Pokémon soiree event or was she encharged of conducting it? I'm kinda confused, but if it is the former it's cool knowing she likes Pokémon, after Ansel Elgort and Nate Irving (actually I don't know much about american football, so I don't know if he is really popular, but it's funny anyways).

    Lysandre's fate seemed fairly open to interpretation to me. Especially in X were the weapon was supposed to grant you and him eternal life in the final stand.
    Oh I see where you're coming from. Although the translation is correct, a better one would be "Odin's gallows" if you ask me. It fits a lot better thematically with Odin hanging himself from a tree to gain mastery of runes and their knowledge.

    They technically did orange/gold vs grey and red and blue are primary colors. Not that odd tbh.

    did i ever mention I created a Hypothetical G7 Pokemon Game (Called Sun & Moon) a few months ago BEFORE this was announced?

    It's very likely they will be the ones on the boxes (20th anniversary...etc)

    Cool but there have been other SM fangames made before :p
    Though if I were you I'd be happy xD

    On the one hand I would find it cheap to have the mega-evolutions of already existing Pokemon on the box-art, but on the other hand, I do see that they just can't continue adding large quantities of new Pokemon every generation.

    You did and so have several reddit users apparently.

    Honestly, I hope something other than Charizard is on the covers. It's a great/popular Pokemon, yeah, but I'm sick of seeing it literally everywhere

    I agree only in the sense that I would prefer new and more .... mythical (not legend) type pokemon as a box art. However if this is correct (not sayin' it is) then it makes sense. Charizard is very popular.
