Pokémon Sword and Shield [2019 Release]
#1
[Image: hero-logo-1.png][Image: hero-logo-2.png]

In light of a new merge of the Pokémon section into the gaming section, I'm deciding to start things off of opening discussion regarding the incoming Generation 8 games coming out this year.

Key Facts
  • The release date of the titles is coming out in the second half of 2019, announced in E3 2017 and once again in a Pokemon conference.
  • According to Junichi Masuda, Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee will (possibility) be his last games as an director.
  • 2019 Games will have a more traditional aspect as the original core games 
  • Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee is a core game, but it seemingly a different branch.
  • Tsunekazu Ishihara confirmed the 2019 Pokémon game is slated to release in the second half of next year and will have better graphics than any prior title in the series.
  • Ishihara also told Famitsu that this Pokémon game will be aimed at experienced fans, unlike Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu and Let’s Go Eevee that is targeted for a new and younger audience. He also confirmed that the 2019 game will contain many new Pokémon.
As a rule of thumb, place all "leaks" under spoilers for those who coming in the thread. News; however, do not follow such rule and will be posted as such. 

What are you expecting for the new games, and what changes do you want to see in it?

The title will change once we get confirmation of the official title.

Knowing GameFreak, they would probably tease their fans by showing stuff about Pokemon Go, Detective Pikachu, and maybe a spin off game and then reserve the last 30 seconds to the Gen 8 game. xDD

I'll be crying once I see the new Pokemon game. I just can't wait for this game anymore and tomorrow I get my fix!  Wagh Shame I got class during the time the Pokemon Direct is showing (9:00 AM my time) and I was TEMPTED to skip class to watch a 7 minute direct... but it's my coding class and I really love that class. 

My speculation is that they will probably introduce the starters and I can't wait for the fans to make ridiculous theories based off of X minutes of the new game.

There are two versions of Tatsumaki: Shine's version and Z's version.

Guess it was packed with full information regarding the next games, Sword and Shield! No time wasted for this one! Here's the trailer for those who didn't seen the direct this morning (or whatever parts of the world you are):


Galar region is seemingly based off of the United Kingdom from first impressions. And those starters looks so dang cute!

Love the starters, love the mc designs and love how the new region looks!! I'm really excited for this game!!
(Still curious about them invisible feet in the trailer xD )

I expected the graphics to look more different tho since they kept saying its gonna be way better than the 3ds version but oh well it be like that sometimes..
Also seems like invisible encounters are back in the game which is too bad.. thats one thing I liked about Lets Go. XD

But still super hyped about the game! Can't wait for more info.

TEAM SOBBLE FOR ME.

I am totally going to pick Sobble, he looks like he would evolve into a chameleon because he can turn invisible, or rather, camouflage into the background. I love the other starts too! I always start with the water type to 'test the waters' of the game. I am in love with the region! I just KNEW it would be based somewhere in Europe. I thought it would be Spain but I was pretty close! I'm super excited to see what the Galar region will bring! I do have a couple of speculations about the starters, however...

Let's start with the Grass-monkey, Grookey.

IN MY OPINION, I think his final evolution will either be Grass/Dark, Grass/Fairy, or Grass/Fighting.
The Pokedex Entry for Grookey mentions that it's mischievous and curious. Dark Pokemon are often portrayed as mischievous and tricky while Fairy Pokemon can be looked as curious and tricky as well. As for the fighting type, I get vibes that he will become a Grass-Infernape. xDD

Scorbunny's final evolution would probably end up being Fire/Electric, Fire/Fighting, or Fire/Normal.

The Dex says that it is always running about and bursting with energy. Rabbits are usually very fast and electric types are some of the fastest Pokemon in the game. Also, the colors kinda make it look like it could become an electric type or maybe I'm just stretching for that one. I noticed something that Shine brought up and he mentioned that Scorbunny has the same pose as Chimchar.

While this can be pure coincidence (Which it probably is), GameFreak is known for making rather subtle hints in things people tend to overlook. Am I saying Scorbunny will be another Fire/Fighting type? I don't know, we'll just have to wait and see. However, the mark on his nose kinda looks like a bandaid, similar to that of fighters. As for Fire/Normal, I think he would be nice as that type. xDD

Last but not least, we have Sobble. I speculate he will be either a pure water type of a Water/Ghost type. I noticed that his name is SOBble, as in sobbing/crying. The Dex mentions that it's shy so what if it evolves and becomes a crazy swole fighter? (Water/Fighting?) If not, I think him being invisible is something ghost types would do, but then again, I wouldn't know. xD

My boy Grookey gets no respect by the fandom! I’m thinking that he might be Grass/Rock, assuming if they kept the whole thing with “Grass Starters being related to extinct animals” shtick. We’re nearly one step closer to creating a Rainbow Monkey team….

I do not personally subscribe to the zodiac theory regarding the starters, but it is pretty damn awesome that we’re getting a fire bunny! I am thinking that he might be fire/electric or fire/steel, depending on the theme they are going for.

Scorbunny and Chimcar having similar poses is just too good for not to be a coincidence. Wouldn’t be surprised if this is a hint towards Generation 4 remakes coming down in the line in the distant future.

Also, be weary of fakes, rumors and bullshit spreading about in regard to the game. Although, I heard that supposedly armored evolutions coming to the game—which is this generation gimmick. I do think GameFreak will add a new mechanic, but another method of evolving… hmm.

I watched the trailer again and I noticed the invisible footsteps that Pinkeyy pointed out where Scobble/Grookey left. Plus, another wolf-like Pokemon appeared again in the Pokemon-League arena (?) as a mascot logo.

I love this. @fullblue 

They turned her into a rough, housing brit xD

Looks like we have some information regarding Sword and Shield

Quote:Nintendo America just put out a minor bit of new Pokémon Sword & Shield information. With this information, they have confirmed once and for all that the Stadium-like building scattered across the Galar Region are Gyms. This had been theorised but has now finally been confirmed. With this, a new element was introduced. Rather than Gym Leaders, the Gyms in Galar have got Gym Masters.
I wonder what the heck is a Gym Master? Perhaps is no different than Gym Leaders, but master is a curious change.
