I was unsure about Sword and Shield's names when I first heard about them, but seriously? Scarlet and Violet?
I mean, to be fair, the very first Pokémon games were named Red and Green. The color conventions have been in the series since the very beginning; X and Y, Sun and Moon, and Sword and Shield are the outliers. (Even the ones named after "minerals" are still colors.)

Personally, I'm not too fussed about the name of the game. Also -

Pokémon Chaos and Pokémon Order! It's right there! A perfect name!
Gonna be honest with you, this sounds like a fangame name.

...Do you mean that as a compliment, or do you think I stole it?
I don't think you stole it. It's more an observation. I think it's a cool name, but I don't think Gamefreak officially would go for it and it's more along the lines of what fan creators would use.

Years ago I remember people were expecting Pokemon to run out of gemstones lol

Also years ago, do any of your remember that when a new Pokemon installment was revealed, it wasn't the starters who were first revealed, and all Pokemon's names were in Japanese and we don't know their English names for MONTHS while people were speculating on what the English names were. Also Japan gets their Pokemon like 6 months before the rest of the world. Gen 6 was like the first time the starters were first revealed plus their English names.

I don't miss those years at all, good riddance to these insane staggered releases, but I wonder if some people are now too young to even remember this.

Koraidon is exclusive to Scarlet

Miraidon is based and definitely sealing the deal on Violet for me

Also, we have different professors (depending on the game? (I think))

I like Pawmi. It somewhat resembles a chinchilla, from what I can see. Don't like Lechonk or Smolive, as they are very generic looking in my opinion. The legendaries don't impress me at all, but I like the look of Miraidon more than Koraidon. I can't believe they did not reveal the name of the region. I like the open-world and the fact that multiple trainers can explore it. And following Pokemon are back as well. Hopefully this mechanic is improved greatly, as BDSP missed the mark quite a lot when it came to this.The graphics look nice as well.

Also, I might be taking a personal break from the franchise. I'm done playing Shield, never finished New Snap, and stopped playing BDSP a month before I received Kirby and the Forgotten Land. I personally think that although I like a lot of the Pokemon introduced in Gen 8, the games weren't as good as previous generations. Sword and Shield had a poorly executed gimmick, subpar graphics, and a linear structure. BDSP had nostalgia bait, cheap looking overworld models, and was released unfinished. If Gen 9 continues to have problems or even makes things worse than they already are for the franchise, I'm honestly thinking about skipping over these games. Considering how mediocre Gen 8 was, I'm not really sure if we need another Pokemon game this year. I also think that Gamefreak should let players enjoy PLA instead of giving them another entry. A lot of people (including myself) might be burnt out from all these entries releasing one after the other.

Sword and Shield we're good games, and I'm always excited for more Pokemon
BDSP has an interesting new style, plus stuff like the Grand Underground and a harder Elite 4


Just pointing out some positive things to counter the negatives :D

Really like the two new legendary designs, both of them are generally great and the fact they're based on motorcycles makes them even better.
