What's the review embargo? I expected a datamine leak today, crazy how close we are to release without it.

I hope the datamine reveals some interesting things. I'm mainly concerned with

-pokemon coded into the game not currently in the regional dex
-g-max forms we haven't seen
-mythicals

Mythicals are interesting. People have wanted them added through patches to keep the surprise factor but I'm guessing TPC would prefer that players have the mythical ready to unlock without a download, so that any person can stroll into a store and claim one.

Also, the total number of mythicals may give us an idea of how much of the future is mapped out, and how long TPC expects us to keep playing just SwSh.

Yeah I'm still excited to see the rest of the new moves, hidden abilities, updated stats and movepools for old Pokemon, and all that. I hope that a smaller roster means more of the old Pokemon will receive updates. Really surprised the datamine hasn't happened yet.

Anyone know if you can breed the fossil pokemon?
Why would you ever want such beings that the light of Arceus has abandoned to spawn more of themselves?



Aaand I found this image while trying to find meme-y Arceus pictures. I wish I had not....

So at this point the earliest we would get a datamine would be in the 11th, right? Or is there hope that something might happen today?

wow, those posts calling James Turner talentless and blaming him. I think its best not to be spreading shitty chan board posts and calling them "savage".
calling people "retards"...so savage... I think it says a lot when that kind of comment is included in this montage and the types of people spreading this.

Some of the new TRs alone seem crazy enough additions, getting the full list and what learns them will be huge.

Imagine if Hydreigon, Gengar, Aegislash, Reuniclus, Clefable, Chandelure learn Nasty Plot! Maybe even Eevee will learn it, a lot of its evolutions are special attackers.

edit: Also just thought about Swoobat. Simple makes Nasty Plot a +4 boost, and it has Stored Power. Could be fun!

Ew, gross. Thanks for the heads up.

So, what's this I've been reading about GTS? Is it really not in the game or did the leaker just not see it?

I think it's more likely that we will see a backtracking of stance on DLC / expansions than SwSh not getting updated. Besides, if this is all about TPC product management, budget, and lack of incentives, then that falls perfectly in alignment with that.

Then again maybe the ultimate DLC revenue is just making another game.

There is no fucking way the GTS is gone. In this current age, it would basically kill the game outside Japan.

Like I’m pretty down on Pokémon Sword and Shield and I still am not cynical enough to believe that Gamefreak would take out the GTS.

I really like a lot of the new designs. The elephant, the fire bug, the corgi... Sun and Moon didn't have a lot of designs that I wanted on my team Honestly I'm just waiting to see some raw footage now so I can gauge how fast the battles are. It's really a big aspect of buying for me, grinding/training/catching in S/M was so tedious because it was like watching a slideshow at times.

One thing I can't say I mind much is the lack of National Dex... you grow up playing Ruby and Sapphire, you already had many Pokemon made totally inaccessible unless you were willing to buy a Gamecube, link cable, and suffer through Pokemon Colosseum.

Yes I may need to trade for my pokedex.

Nice to know the JP players are just as unimpressed as we are about dexit:


TL;DR - Japanese Pokemon fans are savage.
None of this is savage. This board full of offensive embarrassing language. Please delete it.

Calling someone a “retard” is not savage. Their intense hatred of Turner seemingly only because he isn’t Japanese isn’t savage.

If we can take anything from those 2ch posts, it's that the Dexit debate is just as embarrassing and hyperbolic in the JP fanbase as it is in the West. And for the record, I'm openly against the culling.

They took it out of Let's Go already. It isnt unprecedented.
