Time to appropriate fan games and maybe not shut them down!!! :D

I think Nintendo may actually be making some steps in that direction, if Cadence of Hyrule is anything to go by. It's not the same situation of course, but it's rather close in spirit. Guess we'll just have to wait and see.

More Pokemon and trainers were announced, and here they are now!

First off, there are two new Gym Leaders: Bea (Fighting) and Allister (Ghost). Note that Allister is a lad, and he has that mask, so I guess he's sort of a... Shy Guy.


Then there's Chairman Rose, who seem to be in charge of the Pokemon League, and Oelana, his secretary:



And perhaps the Pokemon is the one people want to see, and there's some new ones. Besides Yamper, who was announced earlier, we have:
- Alcremie (Fairy), with Sweet Veil

- Rolycoly (Rock), with Steam Engine/ Heatproof

- Duraludon (Steel/Dragon), with Light Metal/Heavy Metal



Gigantamax is probably the closes we could get to Mega Evolution, since it's not only Dynamaxing a Pokemon, but it changes their appearance as well. Two such Pokemon affected by this are Drednaw and the aforementioned Alcremie:

Nice to see Mega Evolution 2. Why aren't they just normal evolutions so they at least won't die with dynamax when it's removed in the next game.

I think putting this new steel dragon up against Tyranitar was a bad idea, Tyranitar looks so much better that they shot themselves in the foot.

I've been wanting true evolution for weaker legacy Pokemon since Generation 5, honestly.

If certain rumours prove to be correct, this could happen though the nature of it is still unclear.
