The fact that No Guard/Fissure Machamp is gonna be a thing scares me. Maybe No Guard will get nerfed and won't effect OHKO moves.

Shamelessly stolen from gaf

A region inspired by Hawaii would be awesome

The likely candidates are the regions that are based from:
1) the whole State of Hawaii or Oahu (its tropical setting, the yellow fire truck and the license plate with a rainbow on it)
2) Singapore or Southeast Asia (its tropical setting, the hotel and the woodpecker)
3) Spain (Junichi Masuda visited there)

see i'd be cool with any of them, but this idea in particular stands out because spain is next to france and so it's easy to imagine a region based on spain sharing a border with Kalos, Kanto/Johto style

Given all the extra zygarde stuff they need to include i guess the most logical thing for them to do would be to set the game in the neighbouring region and have some of the plot be in kalos. That would be hype as *bleep*

Still hoping it's hawaii though, but part of me is thinking that spain would be more appropriate now

Dammit nintendo why didn't you just show a trailer

Well what if it's set in Hawaii and instead of connecting with Kalos it connects with Hoenn? There's a linear route and too much water in both. Besides technically ORAS was the last main series so far

I just noticed something from Bulbapedia that each core series region has a letter 'o' present in its English name.

Sorta likely names for a new region name in Sun & Moon: Corona / Solari / Helios / or something else that is sun & moon related and that has an 'o' in it.

So if we can trade from Red/Blue to Sun/Moon, could we potentially trade a M' that evolved into a Kangaskhan (or really any glitch pokemon that evolves into a regular Pokemon) and thus knows Sky Attack, Water Gun and Water Gun?  If I recall correctly, Gen II's trade barrier didn't block that, so it may be possible. Unless of course, the game is modified to remove the glitches, which would really suck.

it'll be interesting to see how gamefreak goes about preventing that from happening. they've already got legality checkers in place but they're still not very effective at filtering out hackmons

like i said before, i believe they might just give you a copy of that pokemon with the original name/ot/level/etc. but give it moveset/stats as if it had been leveled up in one of the newer games (i.e. you wouldn't retain the moveset when transferring it over). they might also restrict the values of pokemon that can be transferred to ensure that transferring a glitch pokemon with a dex number that technically doesn't exist in those games won't become an actual pokemon when bringing it forward

idk lol

I'm more concerned how they are going to deal with genders.

So there has been some pretty convincing leaks lately.



If this is real then the starters are leaked and Moon's boxart and mascot (which I thought looked a lot like a Nightfury when I first glanced at it).
