There's still time before the game launches for them to reveal new Pokemon.

All most people can do is complain, and most will end up buying the game day 1 anyway.

True enough for some people I guess. There’s been a few games I skipped out on because they didn’t appeal to me. Though I probably will wait until the day after release and check Serebii for the dex. I don’t understand the people that call that spoiling something when it’s got nothing to do with the story or anything.

Here's hoping Fire/Electric for Scorbunny evolution and not some Incineroar clone...

Yeah, I skipped Gen 7 until literally about two weeks ago because I thought the Dex looked largely awful. I'm perfectly happy to wait before starting Gen 8 too - not just because I haven't yet finished Gen 7 (Ultra Sun is seriously hard going - I mean, it's not just a question of the dialogue being cliché or uninteresting, it literally doesn't even make sense most of the time), but also because I don't even own a Switch yet.

I'm definitely looking at the Pokedex before I go ahead and splurge. Thought to be fair I'm getting a Switch either way, at some point.

Crybabies whined about knowing all of the new Pokemon last gen so they're showing us all the old ones instead this time.

To me, it becomes a problem when Gamefreak continues to pump out s**tmon while refusing to improve old s**tmon. In my opinion, every Pokemon should be viable in some way. I know that’s not all there is to Pokemon, but battling is a huge part. A conservative amount of new additions is fine so long as there aren’t many s**tmon, but it’s looking like that’s not the case here. Obstagoon and Sirfetch’d are great ways of trying to revisit old s**tmon - I can’t understand why they don’t do that more often. And the Pokemon receiving gigantimaxes in that trailer beside Butterfree now aren’t the ones who need it. Who is gonna use Pikachu, Meowth and Eevee? Did anyone really use them even after their Alolan forms/z-moves? IDK, Gamefreak logic is bizarre.

Meowth, Pikachu, and Eevee are the faces of the Anime and are basically the faces of the franchise at this point. Its not to say they are ppls favorites, but they are the Mons Gamefreak has used to "Hype" the series whenever needed.(I mean Ash still has Pikachu along because its the poster child of Pokemon, The anime Meowth Talks and if that doesnt show a form of marketing, then what does? Finally Eevee gets a new evo every few gens to keep hype for new stuff and what not and nothing else has, what is it now, 8 evo's at this point.)

They’re not showing much due to the complaints of showing too much last gen.

So, the community did this.

I wish I could say I hope that you’re right but they literally keep trolling the fans that want to see only the new mons. Did we really need a 24 hour reveal of a Gen 1 Pokémon?

I’m of a same mind though about wanting to see what the game has to offer Pokémon wise though because I wanna know if the game even has designs that I like. So far the only concrete one for my team is Corviknight and I don’t trust them not to mess Scorbunny up.

I’d be pissed if I preordered the digital version and the amount of new mons was so low I’d have to pick between what I feel are terrible to okay designs.


Normally by the 1 month countdown I know my version and starter. Normally I buy digitally because I don't sell the games I enjoy, but this time around....

We are just under a month away, and this time I don't know which version to choose because I don't know the new exclusive pokemon. Sirfetched and my little pony are not decision makers for me.
I don't know which Starter I would like either. I guess I will go with my Grass type default.

I understand GTS makes exclusives a little less important, but since Game freak thinks it important to make 2 versions with exclusives, and I am done buying both versions nowadays, then I need to make an informed decision. That requires information though.

Yeah this is the one thing I think Gamefreak really needs to clarify, I like the restraint but exclusives actually matter to know before the games are out.

Let's be real here, out of the 1000 different pokemon we always use the same six every game
I always use 6 new Pokémon.

Reruns it’s a mix and match.

if I can tolerate a rerun that is.
