    That's too obvious. Just like Leon would be too obvious. ! The real evil team leaders are Magnolia and Sonia!

    Arceus is made up religion though. it's not based on any specific deity, but rather takes the elements of a generic creator god (as they appear in nearly every religion and mythology).

    Uh....

    How exactly does this:
    Sound anything at all like:
    ?

    So no it doesn't sound like a Nuckelavee at all.

    Maybe, but I remember there being some controversy about it.

    I wouldn't be surprised, but I think there might be way more controversy if they styled Pokemon after gods or figures from religions that are still around today, so the idea that Chariman Rose will use "Religion based Pokemon" sounds fishy and problematic.

    Unless it would be Pokemon based on Shinto Kami, Japanese culture seems to be pretty relaxed about having Kami from Shintoism appear as characters in video games.

    I agree with you there. It wouldn't be pretty, that's for sure. Usually Evangelical Christians have a big fit over that kind of thing, in terms of Pokémon.

    Maybe.

    It'd be cool to have two psuedo legendaries for this region, we already have pre-existing exclusive psuedo legendaries.

    Yes! We haven't had two pseudo lines since Gen 3. They could make one that's more offensive and one that's more defensive. And make one of them a non-dragon type please! I love the dragon type but I really like seeing some diversity in the pseudo typings. Like maybe a ghost/water type pseudo?

    I think that the camping feature mentioned in the credible leak is the new version of Amie/Refresh.

    Agreed! Especially after seeing in the treehouse footage that there are new items, such as the sack of potatoes and the pungent root, I could see us camping and making new foods for our Pokemon. I wonder how extensive this mechanic will be though.

    They'll probably do what they did with the original Pokemon Amie and essentially give us some of the basics of what the feature will be like, see if fans like camping and want it to be more extensive, and if we do then they'll add on to it.

    Any more credible leaks? I don't think the first credible leaker is going to reveal anything else, I think that their time portal completely ran out of power.

    Well no but do we really need more leaks when we are getting official news in 6 days?

    Don't expect anything significant from Pokenchi.

    Expecting news from Pokenchi is like expecting Serebii to pivot to video.

    If someone expected news from Pokenchi, i would say Corocoro have better chance than it (even Corocoro nowday are hopeless for news)

    ...but i guess i kind of look forward to it in another way, i have made a promise to laugh someone when it air after all.

    So it will just show stuff we already know in a new light?

    That's what Pokenchi usually did back in SM's prerelease period.

    We likely won’t even get that. They tend to just show the exact trailer that was released earlier then discuss it.

    I noticed as I said in the other thread, Kabu means fog in Fijian. Maybe we could have a split Fire/Flying gym in the industrial town.
