Does this idea seem at all plausible to you?

    They do look older. I assume they're 13 or 14 at most. Not as old as the black/white protags but not as young as the Su/Mo protags either.

    Yeah. I think that they are equivalent to Nate & Rosa in terms of their ages.

    Gen 5 Chibi sprites made their ages kinda irrelevant imo. S&M finally ditched chibi but like you said they basically were kids so that is why I am super happy about this!

    It is London. You can see London Eye and Westminter Palace when they zoom in the video.

    One of the best ideas I've heard. Love this!!

    Some of my thoughts:

    things I liked include:

    The region (looks temperate/mountainous and leaning more towards cold)
    Player characters look a bit older
    The player characters look AMAZING (provided customization returns, it will be even better than Alola with these models and climate)
    The grass starter

    things I didn't like

    No overworld encounters
    GYMS RETURNING! (and the fact that they said they are wanting to "try new things" only rubs salt in the wound)

    Where did they say gyms are returning? Didn't see anything about gyms in the video.

    You can see tournament rings and buildings in the trailer. There's a grass gym they show in there.

    Yes, but the Lati twins aren't box legendaries. ;)
  10. If you zoom in enough, you can see all the stadiums or gyms

    I don't know why I haven't seen many people suggest Scorbunny as becoming Fire/Electric? To me it seems one of the two most likely, the other being Fire/Fighting (god forbid). Also ironically enough, I've been wishing for a water lizard starter for ages, but Sobble is underwhelming for me. Hopefully he'll grow on me, because I like Scorbunny a little more at the moment, yet I don't want another Fire/Fighting repeat...

    As for Grookey, he's okay. Nothing special to me though at least.

    Looks wack!

    Just kidding. The game looks beautiful actually. Very beautiful. If that's what sun and moon is supposed to look like at full power, then that's amazing. The starters are all equally cute. I can't decide just yet, gonna wait for the final evolution.

    The map looks interesting. It seems a bit small, but Hoenn also seemed small but had a lot of stuff to do in it, so I'll hold on to my judgement. I am bit afraid that it seems very linear in terms of map direction, you can literally trace the flow upwards. I hope that's not the case. Back tracking never hurts in a pokemon game.

    Now, I don't know yet, but from just the trailer, it seems were going to have the same old closed routes again. I hope that's not the case. What's the point of a beautiful landscape if I can't go frolic in it? However, the middle region with the lakes appears to be what could be the closest thing we have to a big open region.

    We might still have over world pokemon. Maybe, Idk but I hope we do. I really hope we do. The trainers still are standing in one place, I hope that's not the case, but probably most likely.

    I just hope the gameplay and the story is on point.

    I’m not impressed. It just looks like SM HD which is one of the worst case scenarios for this game. What they showed of the game still shows tons of cramped, linear paths, it just has more visual flair in the background. I reduced my expectations from full on BotW to just having larger and more open paths but it doesn’t even look like it meets those expectations. I’ll reserve judgment in case more info comes out that makes this game look more favorable (such as being able to challenge gyms in any order), but not a good first look at this game.

    You're right, I missed that they talked about gyms. That's so dumb. I was hoping this game would have at least a semblance of challenge since it was supposed to be for the 'veteran players', but I guess not.

    You know, that would be a perfect opportunity to create your online Wi-Fi teams and battle. You can create your clans, which perfectly matches with 'Sword', 'Shield' theme as well.

    Looks like there's a huge, futuristic city at the very top of the region. I hope that's a city and not just the Elite Four.

    WHY the titles colors are red and blue again? I wanted Pink and Green..

    Holy crap, don’t get my hopes up for a Poison type (non-UB) legendary!

    Industry vs. nature could definitely play a role there.
