I find that Pokemon Stars is unlike a 3rd version to Sun/Moon

    If you remember, X&Y didn't have a X2/Y2 or Z. So I doubt Pokemon Stars is a 3rd version. I could see it being a spinoff, maybe.

    They pretty much stopped the 3rd version tradition after Black and White 2. Also B&W2 came out 2 years after B&W1 if I recall.

    I don't think it'll be a third version either, because Solgaleo and Lunaala are a duo, not a trio. It'll probably be something like Pokemon Colosseum for the GameCube.

    I hope it's like Pokemon Snap 1&2 or Colosseum. I really want a Pokemon Snap sequel with all Pokemon from gens 1-7!

    Wrong, the third of the trio is Necrozma.

    Or a 3rd version adding a new legendary that we obviously don't know about and is pokebank tradable with a patch to sun/moon.
    A new exclusive legendary would be a seller.

    Oh I didn't know, I haven't finished the game yet. I thought Necrozma was an Ultra Beast.

    I'm still in denial over this Pokemon Stars. Until it becomes officially announced by Nintendo, Game Freak, whoever, it doesn't exist. If it happened, I hope they go the full 3D graphics, make it better than Colosseum, XD, and Battle Revolution.

    Are they seriously calling it Pokemon Stars, instead of Pokemon Eclipse? If so, they're missing a HUGE opportunity here...

    It's supposedly just a codename, so there's still hope.

    I'm excited that it's possibly a thing because I felt Sun/Moon was pushing the 3DS a bit further than it really needed to. Though being a 3rd version on a separate console seems kinda odd. If it's only possible to transfer Pokemon through Pokebank and not directly through trades it gets rid of the trading to complete the Pokedex aspect between Switch players, seeing that all copies of the game on that platform will have the same available Pokemon. QR codes are out of the question as well if it doesn't have the camera.

    On the other hand, they're marketing this handheld as a console. Local trading will be a thing but used less than the 3DS if only because of the smaller player base at first. If wonder trade and online functions are cross platform it could work itself out.

    This entire generation seems to be the 3rd game with Zygarde the Z stuff all over the place.

    I agree. People do take rumors quite a bit too far, especially when a lot of them end up completely false.

    Now that you mention it, Solgaleo & Lunala are kinda odd, due to the fact that they evolve from the same pokemon; similar to Slowbro & Slowking, Poliwrath & Politoed, ect.

    EDIT: Also, I just realized that they are the 1st legendary pokemon that can evolve :wacko:

    They might just pull an or as (can't trade things newly added) which prolly wouldn't be alot. RS->E was possible, BW->B2W2 was fine XY->ORAS was OK. I see no reason why they wouldn't be able to do that for this. (Provided it exists)

    Lml NO. I know Nintendo makes its $$$ by selling you the same exact shit twice, but they have never done this with a pkmn game XD

    Actually they stopped with a special third edition after Platinum. BW2 aren't third editions of anything.
