Now that I think about it, shouldn't Terastilizing have been in Galar? Rose's whole thing was that Dynamax energy was limited and would eventually run out. Terastel energy needs to be refilled after use, that could've connected to his goals.

The issue was that Dynamax energy was also used as a finite power source, and as of now there is no confirmation that Terastal energy can be used for the same purpose. A better point of comparison would be Mega Evolution energy, which is at the core of Devon Corp's Infinity Energy, and would be a viable replacement energy source.

I'm fine with DLC as long as they don't do the crappy thing of purposely cutting a lot of stuff just to get extra money from DLC that a lot of companies do. I would hope the Pokemon Company/Nintendo would be better then that, but I air on the side of cation. As long as the base game actually feels full/complete and not empty or slashed for the sake of selling you content at extra cost I'm fine. It is a very hard balance to strike, but it is possible if the effort is put forth.

I mean, Isle of Armor and Crown Tundra seemed pretty solid. They felt like a whole new game, really.

I have confidence the DLC for Scarlet & Violet will be incredible.

It was fun that if you didn't have enough money to pay the taxi guy he'd bring you to a dark alley and try to beat the crap out of you with his Pokemon

Speaking of Scarlet & Violet DLC I feel like that area that is basically southern France/Kalos and is just covered in fog screams is going to be used for DLC just like the situation with the Crown Thundra and Galar.


So one part will probably be that and then maybe another part will be some islands.

Nah, I think it's just gonna be past and future versions of Paldea. It makes the most sense, and it's also the cheapest thing to do.

If there is indeed a connection in the story to AZ and the Kalosian War, I can see there being DLC surrounding that war from Paldea's perspective.

There is literally a area covered in a substantial amount of fog on the north eastern part of the region, the last time we had a similar situation was back in Galar and the Crown Thundra was revealed.

So it is pretty likely that we are getting part of southern Kalos as DLC to some extent otherwise the map wouldn’t have extended that far.

Literally every region since Unova has had cloud cover in its official map. That has never made a difference.

We cannot assume now that it means something.

Crown Thundra (Scotland) is part of Galar (United Kingdom), but Kalos (France) has absolutely nothing to do with Paldea (Spain).

I see more likely a DLC of the Balearic or Canary Islands (I hopefully that both).

That argument doesn’t work as the only time significant amount of cloud cover was used to cover up land was on the case of the Crown Tundra in Galar.

So that doesn’t mean that part of it can’t be visited, as don’t forget Portugal is not part of Spain, and yet it was still made a part of Paldea.

If they really had no intention of that part of the map being used for DLC then they would have had the map adjusted in a way to cut off that part.

Alola didn’t after SM’s release when the Aether Foundation was revealed to be hidden under the cloud that was removed from all subsequent maps. And the Poképelego is still recognizable under the cloud so the clouds are more for aesthetics in Alola than other regions.

Thing is that Lumiose was already fully explorable by the time you fight Clemont. The only post game areas in XY are Kiloude City, Zygarde's chamber in Terminus Cave and Unknown Dungeon. Which literally just amounts to one town and two rooms. Previous games had entire subregions to explore like the Sevii Islands in FRLG, the Battle Zone in DPPt, and East Unova in BW. I was hoping we'd get Southern Kalos for XY's post game to follow suit but nope, that entire section of the map was just nothingness. Also the Battle Chateau is literally just the Battle Tower (which we'd gotten in every game since Crystal) with a different name. So no, XY's post game didn't impress me in the slightest. In fact, I'd say it's one of the worst post games in the series, in the same tier as other nearly nonexistent post games like RBYLGPE and RS (probably just above those two but they're more comparable to those post games than other more substantial post games).

Portugal doesn't seem to be represented in Paldea because until now nothing has been seen about that country neither the Portuguese language nor buildings nor any clear reference that suggests that Portugal has some type of representation. What's more, the game won't even have a Portuguese translation, which says a lot.

If our legendary at no point picks us up from school I'm going to ride it to school every time I have to return to it. Seriously, it'd be so cute if after we're sent on the treasure hunt someone runs up to the Principal and is like, "Um sir, we have a situation outside." Everyone goes outside and sees the legendary just patiently sitting around, waiting for you to get out of school. Then upon seeing you the legend runs up to you, excitedly greets you, and now we're just able to call upon them whenever.

One feature I'm REALLY hoping comes back in Scarlet & Violet is the ability to nickname traded pokemon once. It's a small quality of life feature, but it's one that I really missed since it wasn't available in BDSP or Legends
