Does this idea seem at all plausible to you?

  2. So now we have our first Ghost-type 8th gen, and it's a teapot. I like it; it has a lot of character.

    I was going to play the female trainer anyway for the Scottish Pokemon Trainer memes, but I'll probably customize her to look like a cute little princess doll to make the Scotsman from Samurai Jack impression I'll do for her voice even funnier.
    I'm not really digging Polteageist that much, but I do like Cramorant and will probably use it on my team if its stats are good. I see cormorants a lot in and around my town's harbour, they're nice birds, so I'm happy there's now a cormorant Pokemon!

  4. after i saw the jolteon at the beginning and then a gigantamax eevee i expected something eevee related. in the video on the pokemon youtube chanel you also see the eeveelutions. what a tease.
    anyhow, the mint(?) alcremie surprised me, i thought it was shiny for a sec but the clover thing shows it isnt and then the video confirms it can have multiple flavors. the strawberry one is so good though so 90% im gonna use it.
    the teapot pokemon looks kinda cute! gotta see what it evolves into but it might end up on my team. the bird pokemon... i didn't like. not meaning to be rude of course.
    love the customization! glad i can make multiple saves on my switch so i can play through and make several players and teams

    I hope our Pokemon get a bunch of adorable interactions and that they have friendship meters with each other

    The camping feature looks fun. Hope we have a lot of options for the food. Bring on the food porn!

    According to the camping section on the Sword/Shield website, there are several variations of Alcremie, so I wonder if Alcremie is the Burmy/Oricorio of this gen.

    How can anybody look at that Pokemon Camp footage and say with a straight face that this game was not made with heart is beyond me. That was incredible and the customization on the trainers is the best it's ever been.
  13. Alcremie has Strawberry and Clover styles so far; I wonder what other varieties it may have. All I can think of is peaches and cream at the moment.

    The teapot thing is cute, hopefully it evolves because I feel like they could take it in an interesting direction. Dunno what to make of the bird, it's suuuuper basic looking and its ability feels gimmicky.

    Customisation looks great, as does camp. The clothing options in XY/SM weren't great, so I'm happy to see they've expanded it a lot. The interactions in camp look really fun and I like that you can have your whole team out together. The curry thing is also hilarious.

    More like the Vivillon. There's loads of them.

    You can see all (?) the Alcremies here btw: https://swordshield.pokemon.com/en-us/gameplay/pokemon-camps/

    I definitely get the sense that this game is content-heavy which is fantastic. It's a shame that with the Pokecamp and overworld wild Pokemon that we don't seem to be able to allow our own Pokemon to follow us. I do love that feature and it's odd that the animations already exist for it.

    Looks like the female Eevee has the heart shape colour on its tail like the partner Eevee from LGE.

    PokeMon2.0 Cramorant is too cute for words!

    I love Cramorant and it just became my new favorite Gen 8 mon. Polteageist is kinda meh but still good, makes me think its going to be a 3 stager.

    Hoping the heavy Eevee focus in both trailers is an allusion to what they will reveal next.

    It bothers me a little that they keep excluding details from the english trailer that are present in the Japanese ones, oh well, I don't think it's new for them to do this.

    Toffee Caramel Alcremie please?

    Well, I wondered whether there was going to a huge Eevee reveal. Something about Pokemon GO and their focus on Eevee for the research breakthrough and one research task being "take 5 photos of Eevee" has me suspicious. Though likely looking for clues that aren't there. Although the trailer focused on Eevee and its line quite a bit.
