It's clear who one of the Legendaries are based on.

I love how almost everyone is like "f*ck Shield, go team Sif!". Well Zamazenta is so much cooler looking, but for each his own I guess

Btw are you guys excited for E3 Nintendo Direct (just a few more days left)? Unfortunately I probably won't be able to see it live as I will be on a business trip then. Oh, Nintendo has teased that they will probably reveal another Smash DLC character, but that is a no brainer. I wonder if they will show something more Pokemon related, but guess not because they usually don't do this if there was a specific direct not long before. I think the highlights of the direct will be:
- Animal Crossing
- Astral Chain and Bayonetta 3
- final Fire Emblem TH trailer (story?)
- some other s*it (Metroid Prime Trilogy remaster? Zelda LA remake? Witcher 3 for Switch?)

And one final bombshell like a new Zelda game teaser or some old IP being resurrected.

I want news on Bayonetta 3 dammit! It's been nearly two years since they dropped the trailer at Christmas 2017.

Tough luck Odd, no Bayonetta 3 news.

So the E3 direct was somewhere in-between in terms of content. What I mean is that they managed to satisfy almost every fan request (aside from Bayo 3 and Metroid Prime remaster obviously), but didn't blow me away in terms of new and unexpected stuff. Cus BotW 2 was pretty obvious if you ask me.

I think the most surprising one was Banjo-Kazooie reveal as a Smash dlc character. Others were either more info on already revealed games or some indie stuff. FE:TH got a story trailer as I expected, and although it looks cool (I mean the few years gap motive), the CGI is hideous at times.

Overall a solid presentation.

PS: SPOILERS: Two new pokes found in S&S E3 demo, and one looks like a Corgi, so the leaks are legit: as such Grookeys final form will be a giant gorilla, Sobble will be spy-themed and Scorbunny will be humanoid fighter...

"- Some super strong Pokemon (like a Machop twice the level of the demo trainer’s Pokemon) can appear in the Wild Area." - this might actually raise the games difficulty, which is a good start. The question is how does this balance the game actually, as when you catch a high level Pokemon it will make battles easier... maybe you won't be able to catch them or the badge level limit will render them unruly.

"...The game’s producers suggested this is because the team wouldn’t have time to properly render and animate all 800+ Pokemon for Sword and Shield." - that is actually sad Wanted to see my Dragon Pokemon pokes in their full 3D glory.

EDIT: Regarding BotW 2 -> we are getting an actual sequel to the story, and we see Link and Zelda travelling together. First thing I thought to myself: I wonder if they will break another long standing tradition and engage them in an actual romantic relationship. The build up is there afterall, and although she's technically still royalty, they aren't exactly tied by social class now after the Calamity laid waste to Hyrule Kingdom... Link is a good husband material for her, doesn't talk too much, always listens to and protects Zelda at all cost

EDIT 2: Yo, those Banjo reveal reaction videos are gold

I hope playable Zelda will be a thing in BotW2. That would be a lot of fun and would make gameplay pretty interesting. Maybe something like what the Lego games do. Link and Zelda travel together, and you can switch between them as the situation calls for. Obviously Link is the warrior so logically Zelda would be a mage. If this do this I would want Link and Zelda to be equal in utility. Not like where you play Link 85% of the game and Zelda you only play for the remaining 15% of the game.

We all know how powerful Zelda is in franchise. So it would be really cool to play her. Especially when she is right beside Link. I really liked her in Hyrule Warriors, her combat style was incredibly elegant and totally fit her. A mixture of rapier and holy magic and the Bow of Light thrown in.

Just give us the most iconic power couple in gaming and let us play as that iconic duo!

Great idea with shared characters! Or they can go Witcher 3 road which had those OP Ciri segments. Zelda would play a similar role, because as you mentioned she's very powerful...

I really hope they add something big to this this game: Twilight Realm or classic dungeons (as people suggested). It's obvious Ganon will be the final boss -> Lich Ganon (which makes sense cus his a Sorcerer at times), so an undead, would be something new in the series. There are a couple of traps though: they shouldn't make the game a backtracking adventure. Sure, cameos from BotW chcracters would be cool, but I don't want to visit the same places all over again. Another thing is that Link has somewhat reached the peak of his power at the end of BotW, so they need another mechanic to make him not OP from the get go (to balance things out). Time will tell, but I'm definately picking this up.

Maybe the Triforce will debut in this game. With Zelda holding/obtaining Wisdom, Link getting Courage, and Ganon of course would be in possession of Power.

I know I mentioned Hyrule Warriors but I am gonna reference it again because it did a rather good job of depicting the Triforce and the power it holds. So maybe we might see something like that again.

Maybe we will have to travel to different realms to retrieve each piece because like you said Ganon is now a lich so perhaps they have to combine the power of the Master Sword and the Triforce to seal him away again or "kill" him.

Gotta say, the guy does have a point: Gamefreak is lazy.

For a Switch game, we should expect more from S&S. And after they angered the fans by saying not all Pokemon will make it into the game due to time constraints...

Yeah I noticed this during that very battle in the direct. The lack of animations for the pokemon fights is still the same idle pose with only one generic attack animation. The transition from handheld to console should be more than just a literal change over, I wanna see a more upgraded pokemon game. Lets go included, you could picture these games easily on the 3DS.


As far as the 'catch them all' thing you guys are talking about goes, I'm with you that I would REALLY want to have a game with all the pokemon in it...but I wasn't expecting that at all. And its Just because they have a new Gen of Pokemon. That's why I've been extra critical with the new designs of them Its like we're at a point where there are SO many pokemon Generations, why not stop and just make a fresh game with the one's already out there? and of course a ALL pokemon in one game would come in mind, some kind of legit open world from the start RPG where every pokemon in the franchise existed, somewhere. Who the heck would care about another Gen if we got something as massive as that...

But instead we've got wolves with weapons and so far just recycled animal inspired pokemon. Like the new but never new fire that looks like itll mixed with fighting

Yeah I was incredibly angry that this will be the first pokemon game were you can't catch them all. Like is that not the very motto of the pokemon franchise? Catch them all! I dunno. So far I am kinda disappointed in S&S. I think Pokemon works best when it is a handheld game. Not a console.

Well, people have really high hopes for the first console Pokemon game in years, plus GF had a lot of time (supposedly they started work on this somewhere after X&Y). Excuses like this are just lazy, especially because they should have a high budget. They literally s*it money, is it so hard to hire extra hands to create all Pokemon animations and models? What is this, the 90s? Look at Sakurai and how much he did for Smash Ultimate, the game is also based on mostly reskins, yet they managed to pack so much content into it and add a lot of surprises. And they could've just stopped at "Brawl Enchanced Edition"...

I think it's a bit arrogant from their side. I wouldn't be surprised if they had talks like "why bother, we will make milions of $$$ even if we just reskin the handheld games"...

This game was supposed to be a huge leap. My dream was something like Pokken DX, the technology was there. But like milions of other players I will buy it just the same

I agree. I was hoping for a game where you could visit all the Pokemon regions. A game as large as BotW, with as much content. Imagine exploring all the regions. Taking your time. Starting in the region of your choice. Becoming that region's champion and then moving on to the other lands. From the bottom of the ocean to the outer reaches space. From Kanto to Galar.

I agree. GF is just lazy. You're right, this was supposed to be a major leap forward for the series.

So let's look at it from a marked point of view!

If you make a game with all regions, with all Pokemon, you not gonna make money forever.
Making a game with restricted content, makes it possible to make tons of games every 2nd year.

I hate this world for being all about money..

It's also ironic that GameFreak said that Ultra Sun & Moon would be the last pokemon game that they make. And yet here they are.

Honestly if they were smart they would have made a Kanto-->Red/Green/Blue/Yellow console version. Then for the next several years released DLC that allowed you to then move on to the next region. Johto-->Gold/Silver/Crystal, Hoenn-->Sapphire/Ruby/Emerald, Shinnoh-->Pearl/Diamond/Platinum, Unova-->Black(2)/White(2), Kalos-->X/Y, Alola-->Sun/Moon/Ultra, Galar-->Sword/Shield.

If you start in Kanto and release a new region every 2 years that's 14 years of content. And money, especially if the DLC is paid for. No vision in GF. And like blob said, incredibly lazy on their part.

Well, the game will be enjoyable that much is certain. It's just that it isn't this "grand" Pokemon game everyone was dreaming of, at least it doesn't shape up to be one.
