Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield
« on: February 27, 2019, 09:09:30 AM »


It's Generation 8!

The region is Galar, which I think is based on England this time.

The starters are: the Grass-type Grookey, the Fire-type Scorbunny and the Water-type Sobble.

Thank you for reading.

Game looks good, but not really feeling the starters so far.

Going to keep the tradition of going with the water starter though, so Sobble it is.

Aegislash will definitely have an important roll in the game.

Remember when Pokemon Sun and Pokemon Moon was new, where people thought Solrock and Lunatone would have something important going for them? The only thing I can think of that they got special treatment with are new moves they benefit well from, but I don't think they got any special treatment. In fact, they are not found locally in the original pair of games! I think they are found in the Ultra games, though.

Thank you for reading.

I know

But when you put the fact that you can transfer your Mons from older games to the newer ones, it suddenly sounds less exciting.

But if he's actually one of the Pokemon you can find in the wild then YES!

Where my Sobble gang at?

Opinion may change as we see evolved forms, but right now I'm 100% team Sobble.

The games, from what we know so far, gets a resounding "meh" from me. Mainly because of the starters, they don't look at all interesting. I've kind of felt that way since the Unova-era shift in art, tbh. I'll probably just capture a Treecko in an older game and find a way to bring it over. #MakePokemonLookCoolAgain

The region itself looks pretty interesting, though. It being based on England, I'm expecting a lot of castles and forests and such. "Sword and Shield" kind of makes sense in that regard, I guess. Knights and all.

They added their own applause to the title reveal, which is just........ sad.

Also, the boy kid's backpack is HUGE!

Loving the Galar region so far, been hoping for a more mountainous region after sustaining Alola fatigue. (nothing against Alola, but after playing Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon back to back within a short timespan I'm kind of sick of the ocean.)

In terms of starters, traditionally I usually lean towards the water-type but so far I'm more team Scorbunny.


I wonder what the Gen 8 anime will be like.

If I do end up getting this, I'd go with Sobble as the starting Pokemon. It's so cute!

New region looks exciting, and I do like the designs of the 3 starters, particularly Scorbunny. I'm gonna wait until their evolutions are revealed to decide which one I'll pick though, and I do hope that Scorbunny's evolutions won't be Fire/Fighting

Yeah, starters usually are more cutesy than anything, but these invoke a much different feel to me than what we've been getting since Unova (Snivy's actually pretty cool, though).

They all look cutsey to me.

Hell I'd argue Cyndaquil is more cutsey than any of the ones we've gotten since.

I mean, nothing wrong with cuteness, and their final evolutions may look much better than their basic starter forms. But these being the first Pokemon we would see in the game just doesn't do it for me. Perhaps future Pokemon will interest me, but that hasn't happened in a while.

How dare you good sir.

I must smite you now.

Truth be told I'm actually more of a fan of ugly pokemon.

Like intentionally hideous ones.
