    So the new team is some mash-up of Team Skull and Team Flare, except less cool than either?

    The heads look kind of like Star Force Mega Man's, as well.

    So far I'd play the game just to catch Lechonk and Megamon X + Z and I hate that I'm that easy to bait.

    Everybody's on Megamon but I saw a torkoal riding a golden Doofwagon and now I want that game instead.

    Are we not going to mention that the gang leader this time around is almost 50% boots and probably stole one of Bowser's cars?

    Auto battle seems pretty amusing.

    Going off to pick berries in low level routes while Mewtwo commits pidgey genocide in the background.

    Oh I guess they decided the game should be harder, what with that 12 level gap there.

    i wonder if the purple megaman thing is exclusive to violet and the other one to crimson, because i definitely want the one with a blades and not the arm cannon.

  • Dr. ChaosDr. Chaos Post nuclear nuisance Registered User regular
    If the one with the mega buster doesn't have a blue shiny, I'm gonna be pissed.

    I think this trailer solidified my hype completely.

    The new pokemon and characters are all just my jam.

    Hardest thing is choosing which new pokemon to shiny hunt first and finding out which pokeballs are available in the game and how easily obtainable they are (I always try to use the same pokeball if possible for Let's go i used premier balls for Sword/shield i used Luxury same with BDSP and Arceus i used Jet balls)

    Just having all my shiny in the same pokeball sorted by game is just voila.

    It's worth noting it seems the engine of that car is a pokemon
    Gonna guess it's ghost/ steel or steel /poison

    I was just reminded that one of the designers for Pokemon is Hitoshi Ariga, who once drew the Mega Man manga and is a huge fan of the series. I wonder if he created Armarouge and Ceruledge?

    A friend of mine was adamant that the engine was just an ornament until i pointed out that it's tongue is literally dripping saliva.

    It's a great little background thing they don't really call attention to and i love it.

    In Arceus, lady asks for blue vines; give her bright green vines instead.

    Huh, we just finished our Pokémon Tabletop United Mega Max: Fury Road campaign last year. This should be fun!

    Team Star is made up of "rebellious students" which means I want to join Team Star. Pre-emptively disappointed that they won't let me

    You can’t just drop Fury Indigo Road and not tell us more about it! I want team picks, story, the works.

    Sure! In the blasted and damned land of AUSTRALIS, humans and Pokémon alike struggle amongst the ruins of a LOST AGE forever trapped by the ETERNAL STORM. Even as the ruthless IRON EMPIRE consolidates its rule of the coasts and pushes inland, there are rumors that the HERO AURELIA, an ancient legend, has returned to save her beloved Australis. But can anyone truly predict what will happen when the powerful MEGA FRUIT begin to bloom?!

    The Cast:
    THE HERO AURELIA - actually a young engineer who believes that BELIEF is all you need, she sets out to recreate herself as the likeness of Aurelia and inspire heroic deeds. Along with her trusty (Galarian) Ponyta (cleverly disguised as a Rapidash), she uses props and trickery to look more inspiring and walk the walk. If only the soft-spoken nerd could learn to talk the talk and unite the people she's trying to save!

    THE SKY WARRIOR - given the name 'Icarus' by Aurelia, Icky is a member of the Sky People Tribes of Australis. Unrivaled in their partnership with flying Pokemon, the Sky People tend to keep themselves separate from the ugly brutish ways of the "mud rollers". Icky, however, has been charged by a Shaman with two duties: Exact justice where they find need of it and keep "Aurelia" ALIVE! Riding their two swift Doduo, Pain and Panic, Icky fights accompanied by swarms of small bird Pokemon, using their fearsome fighting prowess to pin their opponents while they succumb to the DIRGE OF A THOUSAND PECKS!

    THE VETERAN - a former police officer from a fallen settlement, O'Grady has seen better days. But nobody drives harder or maintains a faster rig in all of western Australis. Accompanied by his extremely technically competent Cubone and his wild and furious Pikachu, O'Grady has a nose for RARE POKEMON and will fight all comers to protect them!

    THE REVENANT - Found in a mysterious tower from the LOST AGE, a Ghost/Poison Eevee! "Dusty" doesn't know who she is or how she got here, but she's determined to make the best of it. Frequently learning new ways to use her abilities to help her friends, she brings a strong, if reluctant, force to battle the chaos of Australis!

    THE MYSTERIOUS STRANGER - Yarran claims to be from another world, that he is in fact "asleep" right now and undertaking a spiritual journey practiced by his people to "maintain the land". His strange mannerisms may well be an act or a delusion, but his dangerous Zangoose bodyguard and powerful Wartortle are only a few of the surprises Yarran has in store. With a mystical connection to Suicune, Yarran has an unerring sense for fresh water and water Pokémon, vital pieces to survival in Australis. He claims that his journey shall disperse the ETERNAL STORM, yet how much can you trust this stranger and his adorably weird Yamper, PRINCESS WUBBLEFLUFF?

    My son just caught a shiny Gyarados in Pokemon Shield and man he's absolutely glowing. This happened like 3 hours ago and he's still talking about it.

    I fucking love this series.

    In Arceus, and just blitzing the quest line to get Basculegion on board.

    Guy needs a Poke but too afraid to get it himself. Calls me suicidal for still wanting to get it.
    So of course I just race out and catch it before the time of day even rotates.
    Can't deny a request like that.

    Yeah. Couldn't care less about Goldeneye.
    But Pichu Power Plant?
    And 1080?
    And that one Mario party game that burns a hole in your hand I guess?

    Frankly, not sure you'd get enough torque to reel in those rods with the softer sticks.
    But I'm not sure I saw any N64 controller damage from Stadium related button mashing.

    ....
    I also did want to do pilotwings with the Ringfit controller though.
    Although I doubt that would be compatible.

    Yeah, that one's actually been known about for a pretty long while. There's a ton of confirmed credible leaks out there right now for this game (presumably coming from Chinese testers or something). There's still one major thing/feature I'm kinda shocked they haven't revealed yet.
    Regional Fakes - aka Past and Future forms (depending on game color) of certain pokemon... basically regional forms but slightly different I guess and themed around the past and future

    Wiglett sounds like a slur.

    It's also apparently based on Garden Eeels.

    This is one of the reasons I'm getting Scarlet. More prehistoric pokemon.

    Give me a fat stout pikachu that looks mad, has a five o clock shadow and wears a caveman singlet along with a giant club.
