Pokemon Sword & Shield GENERAL DISCUSSION Thread [Spoiler-Prone Area]

Discussion in 'Pokémon Sword & Shield Discussion' started by Kage-Pikachu, Jun 9, 2018.


Does this idea seem at all plausible to you?

  1. Nah

  2. Yep

  1. I sure hope not. I hated that both of the last 2 gens had every new species spoiled before the release. I want to be playing a Pokemon game and run into a Pokemon I had no idea existed, something that hasn't happened for me since Sapphire version.

    I can see an evolution for Chatot in Shield since it's a standalone Normal/Flying type Pokémon too just like Farfetch'd. It could evolve into a pure Fairy type.

    I just wanna say I’m really happy I guessed this XD

    Also, I think since we didn’t get Sirfetch’d’s Shield counterpart, we might get it soon. Like closer to the end of the month, maybe? No real proof, just seems unlikely to me to reveal it next month given we’ll be getting a trailer (if the pattern hasn’t changed after this), so it makes more sense in my eyes to reveal it before September ends.

    I'd love even more if we got a baby evolution for the line and Meowth and Persian got a stat boost to match it. Persian deserves to be dangerous again, not get variants of the same power or less.

    I’d assume the Shield exclusive would also have a sword and shield then? But the shield part would be more prominent.

    I just thought of something. Since Escavalier is in these games, then doesn't that mean Accelgor will be too? After all, the two need each other in order to evolve.

    Could be. I quite like Bastiodon, so that’d be a nice exclusive, regional form or not.

    Sirfetch'd carries both a lance and a shield, but Farfetch'd uses a "sword". Think of it as Farfetch'd being Sword exclusive.

    So it's really just Sirfetch'd that was revealed. Well can't say I wasn't prepared for that, but I still don't like the idea that GF wants us to be excited about the reveal of a single Pokémon, could at least given us the Shield equivalent as well.
    On Sirfetch'd itself I like it, but it looks more like a regional form than an evolution.

    You're reading my mind. I'm hoping it doesn't either.

    SueChef Old dog, new tricks!

    Sword Exclusive: Bea + Sirfetch'd
    Shield Exclusive: Allister + Ghost Type?

    I'd love, as would most I believe, for Dunsparce to get some love, but if the Shield exclusive does turn out to be a Ghost type, I'm not sure I'd like it to be the evolution for Dunsparce unless it kept it's normal typing too as our first Normal/Ghost combination.

    That makes sense. Now wondering what other Pokémon currently have some kind of shield in its design that could evolve into a Shield exclusive form. Escavalier doesn’t exactly seem to hold anything similar to a shield.

    Yeah, I’m excited for a farfetch’d evo, but it looks pretty bad,.

    Its kinda one of the central concepts of the game so I don’t think it’s going anywhere anytime soon.

    Dunsparce evolution being Sirfetch'd counterpart would be just perfect! Dunsparce is probably the only pokémon that rivals Farfetch'd in terms of how much the fanbase demanded an evolution for.

    Also, a Ghost vipery thing would probably look great

    To be honest, after all the hype surrounding sirfetch’d, i’m A little disappointed in the reveal. I thought he’d look a little more elegant than this.

    Hmm I hope Sirfetch'd is good, I think it'd be a good member of the anime trope team I want to build.

    Honestly, I’m a little bit disappointed that it’s only Sirfetch’d, but I had kinda expected it to be the only one revealed in the first place and I’m not too bothered because they revealed some information earlier this month already. I do like its design quite a bit, but unfortunately it’s in the other version of the game than the one I plan on purchasing. I am pleased that Farfetch’d is finally getting some good love after being a pretty notoriously bad Pokémon for a long time. The fact that it’s a version-exclusive Pokémon is interesting, and the fact that no counterpart to it is known at the moment is even more so. I wonder what it could be?
