Does this idea seem at all plausible to you?

This is the first game without any notable Electric-type specialist, unless you decide to do a mono-Electric run.

I kinda delved into dex spoilers (squinty eyes) and I saw Vikavolt and thought "I wonder where you have to evolve Charjabug", click Vikavolt and was shocked (pardon the pun) to find that they changed it to being a stone evo, guess that bloke thinking you need a stone to evolve Charjabug in the anime (EDIT: Hayate was his name) is less of an idiot now.
On that tangent, I then figured that the Magnemite and Nosepass lines were cut because of Vikavolt's change in evo method.

I kinda like Leon lol.
I usually like theatrical characters, but everything he does looks a bit forced and fake to me, especially his poses and smiles.

He is kind of presumptous aswell. Like, even if Hop wants to beat Leon someday, him calling his brother a fan is a bit lame if you ask me.

Maybe that is intentional though...

You're right. They completely ditched location based evolutions, likely because they got tired of having to shove a magnetic area, an ice rock, and a mossy rock into every region so they decided to retcon all location based evolutions into stone evolutions.

That does make sense, and for the location based evo 'mons that got cut, they'll adopt that method in future games (like gen 9 for instance if DP remakes do happen).

Chuffed to hear the hate was blown out of proportion as expected.

I'm so jealous of the people who can play the game already :( still another 8 hours for me...
It was not blown out of proportion.
A lot of the issues with the game come out in the long term, not the moment you start playing the game.
Like why would you care about the dex cut when you want to use 6 new pokémon for your first playthrough of the game.
But when you beat the game and want to start playing competitive and you want to use your favorite pokémon Dragonite on your team and it's not in the game, that is when it will be a problem.
Give it time.

Speak for yourself; 13 hours for me and by then I will be in bed. It'll be about 20 hours before I start playing. :(

1 day till launch. Feels like it's been a while since I've had a new region in the palm of my hands.

When can we expect the official Sugimori art to be revealed?

I hate that I’m actually getting excited.

Do we have any information/data mines on the details of any postgame battle facilities? Particularly difficulty, ie. whether the opponents’ Pokémon have good stats, EV/IV distributions, and move sets.

Thanks to anyone who can share! Remember to put it in spoiler tags if you respond, I don’t want to be the one who caused anyone to get spoiled!

I am much happier now that the other Kanto starters are revealed. Not in the game Technically, but you can still send them from Home :D

Bought on the Australian eshop.

Opinions so far:

- I like Hop better than Hau, but i find Leon incredibly annoying.

- Even though the graphics are far prettier docked (the characters look a bit off when it is not docked except for the cutscenes), i will be mainly playing it on the non docked version because i prefer playing it on the go.

- The first part of the game doesn't force tutorials on you like SM did.

- The routes seem very linear and narrow so far. Like people said before, it doesn't look like there is too much to explore.
How are they non docked? It's the only way I'm playing due to possible warping issues with the Switch being docked.

One of my friends got the game today and we played the first hour together.

What we saw was pretty neat and I am pleasently suprised about the early story input as well as the character interactions. Also a very good first impression was the storytelling. People who played through the forest know what I mean.

Could be worse. I made the mistake of ordering online and it only shipped today. If I'm lucky I will have it tomorrow afternoon but will most likely have to wait until Saturday.

Does anyone know if Pokemon will appear shiny in the overworld like in Let's Go?

Looking at the pokédex, seeing some weird things. What's the deal with giving Incineroar Parting Shot? Wasn't it already broken enough? Now it can reduce enemy offensive stats not only when entering battle but also when leaving battle. And Shell Smash on Blastoise, seriously? Did they realise that Blastoise gets Water Spout?
