2D games are an eyesore, I can't stand them. It's why I couldn't get into that Octopath game. There's a fire emblem rip-off coming out next year that seems alright but it looks like a budget Fire Emblem Awakening and that was 8 years ago, so I think it's a no from me. juicy1Β

I've been counting down the days for Crown Tundra. It's going so slowly, I wish it would hurry up. I think we'll have a presents on the day it drops so I'm expecting Snap news then tooΒ cry1Β

Octo is so good though, you should give it a go. At least the demo!Β

I did last year. That's how I know it wasnt for me. I don't remember if it was purely the 2D or something else as well, but I didn't enjoy it. I see why people did tho

Ugh, that sucks.

How are you planning to go into CT? A new play through or an old file?Β

multiple ways! antm1Β I'll use my main file first but I'll be using CT-only Pokemon and catching a new team from them like I did with Isle of Armor. I imagine that the only legendaries in the dex will be Birds, Regis and UBs and Calyrex and the others will be Dynamax Adventures, so I'll probably not include Dynamax Adventure Pokemon for my team. Can't wait to get the new birds <3 <3 <3Β 

Β 

Then - it depends on whether CT is fully postgame or available during the game - but the 2nd time I play will either be a nuzlocke (including IOA or CT, if CT is during the game) or a wonderlocke (base SWSH only, but chance to get IOA/CT pokemon through wondertrade)

So here's some info

Β 

Β 

Firstly, it's not actually the source code but a development repository which is a completely different thing.

The first commit for Sun and Moon was October 2014, the first commit for USUM was February 2016 and the last commit was May 2017. Because we know that research & development and concepts and things have to be worked on first, it's safe to say that this confirms essentially 3 years production time for a new gen, and 1.5 to 2 for a remake/enhanced version. Which I think was said before at one point, but this essentially confirms it.Β 

It also confirms (similar to Pokemon Bank back then) that there were 2 IDs for Gen 6 that went unused, but we see they're marked as Kalos Reserves. So pretty likely that this was either a sequel or enhanced versionΒ of XY that was for 2015 and scrapped probably early on - since SM started in October 2014. It was definitely planned at the end of 2013 I think but got scrapped within that time - probably so Sun and Moon could be ready for the 20th anniversary).

There's also beta maps flying about. Melemele's isnt that different, just that theres a route going through the middle of the island now (and no sign of Melemele Meadow, Kala'Ebay or Seaward Cave). I haven't seen the others.Β 

Β 

Very interesting stuff going into CT next week!!

Really interesting! Gen 6 could have definitely profited a lot from second/enhanced versions.

Yeah absolutely. I think the enhanced version or sequel would have provided Gen 6 megas for the starters, legendaries, maybe things like Talonflame, the fossils, Goodra, Florges etc. The train tracks could have been exploited too.Β 

Β 

Although to be honest maybe it was for the best it didn't get released. Sun and Moon really was helped by it releasing in 2016 after GO's hype. Also we assume it would have been released November 2015 which was also the time of the attacks in Paris, and given the context of the "ultimate weapon" and Kalos being based on France... would have been really unfortunate timing. So maybe for the best.

Finally did that sorter. Only did the gym leaders + E4 one though. Pretty accurate I think. I knew what my top 3 would be in advance, I think they've always been that way. I think Agatha used to be ahead of Lorelei for me before (not 100% sure) but LGPE having Lorelei with that extra role in Route 10 just edged her ahead.Β 

Β 

I have to laugh at the Kanto e4 positions: 4-5-6-72 eve1Β BruNO indeed eve1Β

Cofagrigus in the bottom, Primarina top 20, Serperior NOT top 5... Were you drunk doing this? ellie1Β

I just found this online. Can we add this to the list of reactions? Β 

omg they can fuck off i just bought it in june

There are many more Pokemon fans on flops of the pop than i thought. I still think they need to improve the stats of many older Pokemon and create a more challenging plot for the next game. Do we know
