Title: Pocket Monsters: Sword & Shield
Post by: Bloom on 24 August 2019, 22:26:23
Found this out earlier.

Galarian Weezing looks weird.
Zigzagoon and Linoone get the new Obstagoon evo.
Alcremie, Corviknight, Drednaw, Duraludon, Eldegoss, Gossifleur, Grookey,  Impidimp... wow, a lot of names of new Pokemon...
Title: Re: Pocket Monsters: Sword & Shield
Post by: Bloom on 24 August 2019, 22:28:28
Then there's Morpeko, Rolycoly, Scorbunny, Sobble, Wooloo, Yamper, Zacian and Zamazenta.

We're back to Gyms! And what's with Team Yell? They... don't sound awesome to me. To my pre-evolution, though... well.

Dynamax is a thing too.

Post by: Bloom on 28 August 2019, 14:55:59
Apparently our protagonists are Gloria and Victor.
Hop is a weird name for a friend.
Professor Magnolia has her granddaughter Sonia as an assistant?
Oleana looks boring to me.
What's this about Bea and Allister being version-exclusive Gym Leaders?
There's also Milo and Nessa...

Mirror Armor rules!

WARNING!
Tomorrow at 22:00 (UTC) there will be more info apparently.

Let's hope it's something goooooooood. (Like Zacian's type. What kind of name is Zamazenta?)
Title: Re: Pocket Monsters: Sword & Shield
Post by: Bloom on 05 September 2019, 19:24:05
WTF.

Alcremie has over 18 variations in appearance.
Cramorant (Flying/Water) has been revealed and its ability sounds weird - "Gulping Missile"?
But that's nothing compared to... the Ghost-type Polteageist. The Black Tea Pokemon. What.

Pokemon Camp's a thing too...

Considering Galar is based off the UK, does this mean the Elite Four will be based of The Beatles/Sgt Pepper (Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, John Lennon and George Harrison)? Or that the Elite Four will be replaced with fighting every single member in Parliament?

Maybe Team Yell aren't the actual main villains, and that the actual antagonist is plotting to take over Galar and create a second Galarian Empire?

This just in, Alcremie now has twenty-eight confirmed forms known as "Flavors".

So, I guess they'll probably reveal it soon?

Maybe even all Galarian forms?

Dunseraph.

Heck, why not make Pokemon Fire, Ice and Lightning?
Three games for the price of three.
And a fourth version with fusions of ALL legendary trios.

That's Zapmolcuno (sounds better than "Thu-Fi-Zer"), the Johto beasts, Hoenn legends, Sinnoh legends, original Kyurem (+Zek/Resh), Kalos legends, and Alola legends (Dawn+Dusk Necrozma?).

Silly me. :P

News, we get.

Autosaves return, but can be switched off.
HMs don't return.
The EXP Share is automatic, but still unclear on whether or not it can be disabled.
Some Pokemon aspects will be changeable?
18 gyms - Bea (Sword) and Allister (Shield) are in Major Leagues, not Minor Leagues. Gyms are in different leagues in Galar each year... hope we can battle all 18 gyms, if this is true.

Assuming it's not a case of bait-and-switch, Galarian Ponyta will exist and have rainbow-colored manes?

If so, I bet they're Fairy-type. And Selena Daria van der Merwe would love them, then...

But one apparently didn't have a tail? O_o

Yep. A lot of Pokémon in the series could use evolutions. Also, hopefully the game's plot will be closer to Gen 4-Gen 5. Gen 7 adding in a plot about multiverses was a bit much, I think, despite the story being fine otherwise.

And I take it that Mega Evolutions are gone for good?

#BringBackNationalDex

But I think the Dynamax thing is why we lose so much - Z-Moves, Mega Evolutions, and so on...

And I doubt Leon isn't the final boss, and! I hear the legendaries are wolves?

I bet the next version(s) will be that whole paradox with the sword that breaks through any shield, and the shield that blocks any sword.
Or Gun/Spear/Axe.

Morelull and Phantump lines confirmed, too...

Dynamax Wailord would be humongous.

It annoys me that Game Freak keeps introducing gimmicks and then abandoning them later (i.e Mega Evolution, Z-Moves). What's the point?
On some level, it'd be hilarious if the final Dynamax boss is Wailord. Not only would it be humongous, but also extremely light.
Title: Re: Pocket Monsters: Sword & Shield

Cue the Nintendo Switch NXT, which comes with Sinnoh remakes featuring all... let's say 900 Pokemon, Z-Moves, Dynamax, Mega Evos, and more. :P

Seriously, though. The point is to make us WANT those things more, I guess.

...

I wish we get 112 new Pokemon this gen, at least. Then it'll be 200. Why/how?

151 + 100 = 251.
135 + 107 = 242.
156 + 72 = 228.
88 + 112 = 200.

Wouldn't it be annoying and funny if those non-Galar Pokemon and forms are hidden in the code?

Oh definitely. Game Freak were all like, no National Pokedex and then it turns that every single Pokémon was in the game all along.

It did have a post-game sidequest where you would encounter the Ultra Beasts. Of course, that's nothing like Episode Delta or Team Rainbow Rocket, the latter of which will hopefully return a few generations later (so it can a few more members).

I was thinking that each member could have had alternate teams replacing the version exclusive Pokémon (i.e Cyrus having Giratina instead of Palkia or Dialga Or Lysandre having Zygarde instead of Xerneas or Yvetal) or multiple versions of the same character (Ghetsis from BW/B2W2 or both versions of Archie and Maxie).

I suppose Tricaliber could work, though I'd rather it'd differ to Aegislash so you have incentive to have both evolutions. Last I checked, Mega Evolutions are kinda like 4th evolutions, though it's kinda wasted on Pokémon that aren't fully evolved. Hopefully, Arceus will get a much needed buff and also some backstory related to Galar.
Title: Re: Pocket Monsters: Sword & Shield

So an ability which prevents attacks from missing/allows attack on those who use Fly, Bounce, Dive, Dig, Shadow Force, Sky Drop, and Phantom Force and turns all Normal Attack to Fairy type while boosting those attacks by 30%? Love it. It would make Tricalibur a useful and interesting Pokémon in it's own right. Also, I still think that Deoxys should get Stance Change to take advantage of it's multiple forms; I'd say the same for Castform (weather) and Wormadam (determined by where Burmy evolved) , but their mechanics are different.
Title: Re: Pocket Monsters: Sword & Shield
Post by: Bloom on 08 October 2019, 14:15:28
We need more Burmy/Wormadam forms (like Magma Cloak).
We need a badass Fighting/Flying Starly line with Anger Point.
We need Fog and/or Sandstorm Castform, too.

Oooohhhhh, and a cloudy form, for cloudy weather.

And the return of seasons. (Season 5 was the only seasoned one, being Unova and all.)

Hmm...

Frankly, we could use more evos that are currently exclusive to, like, one or two Pokemon (Eevee has, so far I know, THREE exclusive methods - Glaceon, Sylveon, Leafeon).

Ponyta is like Hoopa now - the classification changes based on form.
Galarian Ponyta is the Unique Horn Pokemon (rather than the Fire Horse Pokemon), is a Psychic-type, and gets Run Away and Pastel Veil (prevents itself and allies from being poisoned and heals allies from poison when switched in).
It's in Shield, though...

Guess unicorns are not Fairy-type.

Yeah, maybe it would be better if each Eeveelution had to learn a move at Lv:50 to evolve. So for example, Flareon has to learn Blast Burn at Lv:50 (or has it before Lv:50), it evolves into Blazeon.

Salmon is delicious, but smoked salmon is even better. Who knows, perhaps we'll get a salmon Pokémon?

Tomorrow, we'll be getting more news, supposedly.

Hopefully, it's revealed while I'm at the dentist's and not later.

I've heard. And it's funny, because I was at the hygienists (i.e dental hygiene) yesterday, hence my erratic posting.
One only wonders what the next piece of info will be.

Hopefully, a salmon Pokemon.

And Galarian Rapidash and an evo.

And at least three new Eeveelutions.

And a Shadow-type Pokemon, and Team Yell's big bad bossy-boots boss.

And Pikachu Volt Tackling Mewtwo through buildings like a boss.

Galarian Rapidash seems likely, and perhaps we'll see starter evolutions or more of Team Yell (unless they have multiple villain teams this time around).

WHAT THE NIFLHEIIM GAME FREAK

Gigantamax Pikachu, Eevee, Butterfree, Charizard and Meowth confirmed. That last one is the LARGEST Gigantamax form revealed so far.

More Gen 1? Ugh, I swear Gamefreak has developed this bias for Gen 1 and it's annoying. What about the other 7 or so generations of Pokémon? But hey, it's not like Charizard has enough forms anyway. Oh well.

Post by: Bloom on 17 October 2019, 11:32:47
But Meowth's size is 108'03" - that's larger than Charizard (91'10").

That's way crazy, given their normal sizes (Pikachu and Meowth are 1'04", I believe).

...

The anime will make Team Rocket way stronger now, I bet.

Maybe there'll be a Gigantamax battle between Ash's Pikachu and Team Rocket's Meowth?
Then again, it's just another gimmick. It's a shame really, considering that Mega Evolutions could have been kept for later games.

Theory:
What if Gigantamax Mega Charizard X existed? *dun dun duuuuuun*
Or more Pokemon get Gigantamax forms that won't be revealed until the games are released?

... We... still have no new Bug-types, do we. :o

Considering how much content Gen 1 gets compared to all the other gens, it wouldn't be that implausible (and what about Mega Charizard Y?). And of course they'll probably more Gigantamax forms that we've yet to see.

Who knows? Maybe they'll be new, or perhaps some Galarian forms will be Bug type?

* cut to an alternate timeline where Generation IX gets only two-stage Starters, Legendaries, Mythicals, and regional variants *

That'd be a catastrophe.

* cut back to Gen VIII not introducing new ~112 Pokemon *

To be fair to Digimon though, it did have some cool designs. Come to think of it, both Pokémon and Digimon have a popular monster (Charizard/Agumon) that has multiple forms and their mascot (Pikachu/Agumon) are yellow.
But back to Pokémon, Mega Evolution is far closer to MegaMan X Command Mission's Hyper Modes considering that both Mega Evolution/Hyper Mode are temporary powered up forms. Though Hyper Mode is better balanced considering it only lasts a few turns, or that to get Absolute Zero/Ultimate X, you have to fight 2 different optional bosses to unlock them.

Mega...
Giga(ntamax)...

I bet the NEXT "transformation" will have "Tera" in the name.

Either way, I take it stats change when in Gigantamax?

It wouldn't surprise me if the next gimmick did have Tera in it's name. And I suppose Gigantamax transformations do have stat changes (as well as new attacks).

Pokémon SwSh is available for preload but unplayable 'til release date (15 November), I hear.

But the lack of reveals (like evolutions) was intentional, too. That players can discover things for themselves...

Basically we only got like 24 Pokémon revealed (variants included) so far.

This isn't an emergency, but I'm making exceptions for Pokémon. As of tonight.

Oh that sounds nice. I'm sure Bloom would have enjoyed Sword and Shield despite the steps back it took.

The only interesting thing to talk about is that one of the songs in this game was composed by Toby Fox.

Huh.
No bad times, I hope.


So, we have about the same amount of new Pokemon as Sun/Moon (and less regional variants).

Next year may add more.

So the game's been released. I'm sure if Bloom could, she'd talk our ear off about it. Who knows, perhaps she's enjoying it right now?
EDIT: So Applin and it's evolutions are Grass/Dragon, which I'm sure would make Bloom Seymour very happy.

Typical, she mentions Kim but it appears that Bloom is being unpersoned as we speak. Then again, from what I've seen of Pokémon Sword/Shield, it doesn't seem too impressive. The main villain plot twist was already done in Gen 7 already and the Legendary designs are lacklustre.

Then there's #890 with that 1125 Base Stat Total form... I don't like it. Irony, huh?


And the Ghost/Dragon line... well. Sounds interesting.

But I like the fossils more. And Perrserker.

At least we don't have to see complaints about there being no Dark Gym any longer...
