    To be fair, they experimented with Pokemon Let's Go. In fact, they changed things in Sun and Moon and they both kick up a storm of complaints.

    Well they should know the fanbase doesn't like when they experiment. I don't think very many people enjoyed Colosseum and XD when those came out.

    What'd I say? A new entry for the Switch.
    But I can't help to think it's been made with the "Let's go" engine?

    This is only because they were released on a home console.
    The Pokemon fanbase doesn't like anything : new pokémon are always bad because "gEn 1 iS BetTeR", old remakes are bad because "lol they don't have ideas anymore", if they release a new gen without new mechanics "Lol it's the same game sold for 60€", if they introduce new mechanics "lol it's not Pokemon it's digimon" ...

    Finally, Nintendo has made the best decision : they do everything they want and the games will sell well, because it's Pokémon

    UK? I like the country but it's a bit disapointing to me. For a European country Italy, Greece or Germany would have intressted me more. Worldwide I would liked to have seen e.g. a African one, maybe Agypt. But it looks nice, guess now it's waiting and drinking tea until we know more ;).

    Hmm, I wonder why that could be :rofl2:

    I'm interested to see if they stereotype the UK much in this region. I'm expecting a lot of tea!

    Are you sarcastic because you saw my region flag or do you just fullfill a certain English stereotype here (that one with a obsession)? :P

    I assume it's based on industrial England. That tower looks kinda like big Ben.

    You do know Sword and Shield represents the UK which is what the "Galar" region is based off of right?

    He isn't wrong. Sword and Shield could represent, in theorie, many countries especially, but by far not limited to, all European countries with a decend medieval history. E.g. Spain. On the other hand Pokémon never was known for creative names, in regards of the version names at least. Gold and Silver? X and Y? Sun and Moon? The list of mediocre titles for great games is a stable of the series, I fear.

    Coming out late this year? Suits me just fine. Plenty of time for reviews to come out before I even think about if I want to get it or not.

    Probably will get it anyway, so long as it’s not another pokemon Go. But at least I can step off the hype train.

    Why do they always release 2 of the same game when it comes to Pokémon?
    There’s always that group of fanboys that buys both, so it makes sence that Nintendo try to abuse them out of some more money but idk. To me it seems like something that EA would do.
    I mean I’m not asking them to save the fuckin children, it just seems scummy to me to suck double the money out for the same game.

    I just wish that for the final game their can be Pokemon outside interaction, not for Pokemon battles just make the region more diverse. Walking Pokemon would be nice but I doubt they will do that anytime soon.
