How different is this game gonna be though. Just the same ol same ol not to mention the new Pokemon designs have got considerably worse. Need I remind people of the infamous keychain Pokemon lol. Just ridiculous.

Wonder if they carry on the recent trend of giving the starters a certain theme to them for example X/Y they had the rpg class theme of Mage, Knight and Ninja.

What was the Sun/Moon theme?

Looking at the third stages SuMo seemed to go for each character being a certain archetype, Grass = Robin hood style rogue, Fire = Pure braun wrestler, Water = Maiden but that's just my take as it's certainly a bit more open for interpretation.

Gen 5 kind of had a theme as well, with Samurott and Emboar being based on Japanese Samurai and Chinese Warriors respectively. 

Yeah I just checked Gen 5 had a theme with famous historic Eastern figures like Scholars, Warriors etc...

Pokemon designs are always going to be a hit and miss but Klefki wasn't THAT bad. I don't have a problem with ghost type Pokemon inhabiting real life objects.

My interest and hype for Pokemon died down significantly though but I'm still curious on whats next. I just want them to start buffing Pokemon they knowingly gave bad stats too *glares at Pyoroar* and to put a difficult setting. I wish the games went back to the content HG/SS had.

The newer designs are way better than the older ones and it isn’t even close

Need I remind people of the magnet with an eye on it, and a bunch of broken eggs. lol. Just ridiculous.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

Not only are they a bunch of eggs, they are a bunch of eggs that turn into a tree lol

Also the pile of sludge that turns into a bigger pile of sludge, a pedophile clown, a drag queen wearing blackface, etc.

I prefer the older gens but they had their fair share of lame designs.

Every generation has had both good and bad designs, gen 1 had a god damn pokeball as a Pokemon.



Back when Pokémon designs were still thoughtful and interesting.

Generation 7 starters were circus themed.



I'm really hoping for a Water/Poison platypus starter (and just good starters in general).

A mystery dungeon being announced alongside the main titles in the direct would make it the best direct ever for me
