Nice! and at a perfect time of 1400 GMT :D

Also, where are the people saying it wasn't bound to come in 2019 ? Do you maintain these thoughts now ?

This was funny, nice one.

Well at only 7 minutes they could be going to talk about Pokemon:Go and Pokemon:Lets go, followed by Sorry we have no information about the next game yet.....

Around the Network

~7minutes? I'd expect a bit longer of a presentation for the introduction of the new gen, but I guess they'll share new trailers/information etc all ~2months instead. Still, this might indicate there is a small chance this is about content for Let's Go or Pokemon Go.

7 minutes only, so I expect just a little trailer on how the next Pokemon will look like without further details and a segment about Pokemon GO and PLG. I expect a more in-depth view on the Gen 8 around late May, just before E3, like they did before.

So, how likely will it be that the visuals will cause an uproar?

The last one lasted 8 mins so we should not expect something really deep in terms of content. So a small unveiling video for gen 8 like they did with Let’s Go and I won’t bet on this but an announcement of a port of Detective Pikachu for May to launch with the movie would be nice.

Just as a quick multi poll of sorts, what are people wanting/expecting??

I mean like

Art Style
Battle system
Catching system
Adventure style
Region base
Release date
Number of new Pokemon

I want

Title: Pokemon (that's it)

Art Style - either a return to pixel art as in Gen V, or more polished celshading as in Ni No Kuni or Dragon Quest XI

Battle system- The traditional stuff, get rid of z-moves though. Maybe expand movesets to 5. Return of all standard features like abilities, double/triple battles.

Catching system- straight up traditional catching mechanics, no motion controls

Adventure style - a guided open world, where there is a story compelling you to go somewhere, but the gyms can be done in any order and scale accordingly.

Region base - Australia.

Release date - September.

Number of new Pokemon - 120.

I expect:

Title: Pokemon Amethyst/Pokemon Topaz

Art Style - slightly better than Let's Go.

Battle system- some new gimmick added that just congests battles with more long animations

Catching system - Motion controls shoehorned in, 'the reception to let's go was very positive' hahaha

Adventure style - so linear it may as well be a visual novel

Region base - UK

Story- Go fight gyms, beat bad team in spare time

Release date- November

Number of new Pokemon - 60, as well as 15 new forms for Kanto Pokemon
