    The game releasing this year is a core game, not a spin-off. They wouldn't release a spin-off before the previously announced core game or the backslash would be inmense.

    And Emily basically confirmed it being a core game when she said the Pokémon games coming this year. Then another user specifically asked about the plural and Emily replied that Pokémon games usually come in pairs (Red+Blue, X+Y, Sun+Moon mentioned as example) so she assumed games.

    Hope to god it's a Kanto game with only 151 pokemon.
     
  3. They're not going to erase the other Pokemon just because you want only 151 to exist.

    There will be more than the original 151 pokemon in the game, I can assure you that. Let alone the new evo's or pre-evo's of the original Kanto pokemon that would still be there, like Blissey or Umbreon/Espeon, Steelix, Scizor, Munchlax, Electrivire and Magmortar, Magnezone, Lickylicky.

    Sorry, Hoenn and Sinnoh pokemon will be there too.

    Thankfully even if it's a Kanto game it will have all the 807 Pokémon :)

    What's the likelihood we are extremely close to the announcement now that mods are hinting at the games? They usually know when a Direct would be incoming, don't they?

    Wouldn't be the first time.
    The first two Pokémon Mystery Dungeon games also came in pairs.

    I'm not saying we definitely won't get a main series game this year, but nothing's really confirmed that, either.

    I think there are only 151, the rest are fanfiction with shitty drawings.

    I’m sorry. I had this long post typed out in response to you. Giving my thoughts of XY (why I enjoyed it so much) and Alola while explaining the point I was originally trying to make and my phone or this site did something weird. I couldn’t copy it, I couldn’t scroll down to hit post reply when I started proof reading it. I’m pretty frustrated because I put a lot of thought and a decent amount of time into that post too.

    There'd be plenty of people turned off enough by a barebones rehash of Kanto to not buy the next games. Thankfully, Gamefreak isn't as stupid as some people seem to think they are, so we don't have to worry about such things. Genwunners being slaves to their nostalgia and being wrong about post-gen 1 games is also a weird thing to give them props for.

    Pokemon Red is available for VC on the 3DS if you're interested. Now, on the other hand, if you are one of those who realized that Pokemon didn't die with the first entry and is the #1 franchise in the world, you'd realize it'd be foolhardy to ruin the pokemon other children have grown up on.

    I won’t even be mad i can’t play Pokémon Switch until 2019, but, I don’t think I can take another year of Gen 1 vs everybody else and “Kanto remake” vs “Gen 8” banter for another year

    Every pokemon gen has averaged 15 million+ sales in every main game afterward. I don't know where you got that from.

    I didn't know 15 million sales over 20 years for each game was "people not giving a shit."

    You mean the movie? There was literally nothing distinct there but two new human characters, one being Cynthia's daughter.
     
  20. So you came into this topic to troll and also be unoriginal on purpose right?
    Games are not the anime and never will be, the only exception is Ash Greninja (and some really subtle bones thrown like the silver metagross)

    Unfortunately the pokemon in the anime are the only with any personality, individuality and charm with the most the game has being amie/refresh. I dont expect the next one to do much differently, but its a shame theyre just souless disposable weapons in the games and all the focus will be on the trainers again.

    I imagine joe will come in and tell you all the other tie ins outside of greninja such as ashs pikachu (thats really underwhelming compared to the show)

    Wow I wonder why you'd think that, it sounds almost like you don't like the majority of the franchise yet still feel entitled to having you whims fulfilled despite how nonsensical they are.

    I just want to provide some clarification on what I said -- and what I didn't say.

    What I said: I believe a Pokemon game is releasing on Switch later this year. It will be a RPG with at least two versions.

    What I didn't say: I didn't specify whether it was a core game, a spinoff series, a remake of an older game, or a Gen 8 game.

    I won't be sharing anymore details. The announcement isn't that far away.

    I wonder if they will announce it before E3. That would be a Pokemon type thing to do. I'm surprised it hasn't been revealed yet, tbh.

    Well.....

    Pokémon Yellow

    :p

    There was also a reference in ORAS to Alain and his Mega Charizard which was a bit weird.

    There aren't that many anime tie ins really.

    I can't believe a flooded 100 year in the future Kanto is going to be a thing.

    It's like something out of a 12 year olds fanfiction from 1999.

    Actually all of the remake games have sold roughly the same amount (around 12 million) no matter what generation and this number is also less than what the newer main games sell. Only third editions don't sell as much but since that's comparing one version with two that's a bit unfair. So no, despite your attempt, FRLG didn't sell any better than other remakes nor other mainline titles despite it being a mostly 1:1 remake of Gen 1. And even if it did, it's also 14 years old at this point so trying to use it to judge the modern Pokemon audience is dated at best.

    Should there be a game this year, then E3 is the latest it is likely to be revealed

    I wonder what the anime will do. SM is pretty easily going to end by November given the current pacing. But if the game is Kanto in the future, lol, the anime isn't going to move on from Ash. I wonder how they'll handle it. Maybe just have elements from the game in present time or something. Hopefully they go back to Ash's XY design or maybe the Movie 21 design for the next saga.

    If it is revealed before E3 at this point expect thousands of people online going "why didn't they save it for E3?"

    Because for Pokemon it goes "announcement with logo, followed by footage at a later date" to build tons of hype for clicks when the footage drops

    ZhugeEX hinted at a Mini-Direct is happening atleast.

    Pokémon wouldn’t come at a Mini-Direct. He could’ve just been hinting at any kind of Direct in general.

    Plus we always get some kind of direct in April and May since like the inception of Nintendo Directs.
