Mega Kangaskhan with Body Slam will now be a thing. As if it wasn't a big enough threat already.

That got me thinking about rock head Aerodactyl with Double Edge with excitement but then I remembered Aero can only learn it in Gen 3

Can't you transfer them up to gen 6? (unless you don't have the gen 3 games. Or any of the 4th and 5th gen games which you'd need for that as well. Or a DSLite and another (3)DS....holy sh...this stuff is a real pain when you think about it)

What a beautiful signature.

I don't care what people say. It's an anniversary to hit you in the feels. And I think they did a good job. You guys are much to picky and easy bait.

I'm excited, but I do wish they had shown at least a few seconds of footage. Still, the screenshots gleaned from the Direct are better than nothing.

Pokémon Sun/Moon region will be based off of the Netherlands. You heard it here first.

Check out my super awesome Super Mario Maker levels.

People say it might be based on Singapore because of the concept art they showed.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Hawaii or the UK are the possibilities I've heard for this game's region.

And about every other country or region that hasn't been used yet..

I know people are saying this looks like a new Pokemon, but to me it looks like Fletchling

People keep saying the Xbox One doesn't have Backwards Compatibility.
I don't think they know what Backwards Compatibility means...

Oh my gosh. I just realized what the new region is based off of. It's based off of Hawaii.

1. Resort Hotel-like structure

2. Tropical Trees

3. The strange souvenir you get from that guy in Kalos when he talks about a new region that isn't Kalos or any other region is VERY Tiki-like. It's a freaking Tiki. He also said that we'd see that new region soon, cementing this new region as the one he was probably talking about.

I'd love a pokemon game set in Hawaii.

Hoenn promised tropical goodness, but it was more or less just generic Pokemon environments.

Yeah I don’t know either.

Like how Unova had a big desert and was based on the Saha.. oh.. err.. New York...

DarthNocturnal

@Octane

Wasn't Unova based on North America? North America has deserts.

Granted, I'm not sure how many have ruins like that, but eh.

@DarthNocturnal: Not more than Kalos was based on Europe and Kanto on Asia. It's like the Zelda timeline, it doesn't really matter. They pick a region, but don't really care about its geography, so it's nearly impossible to tell from the Direct alone where the region is based on. There's usually a handful of Pokémon that are based on that region as well, but again, many aren't. It's not as if it matters where the region is based on anyway...

Apparently Unova is more directly based on New York than "North America" in general.

Coincidentally, apparently the desert with the ruins is loosely located where the twin towers used to be in the real world. Oops.

@Meowpheel: I feel like someone told you that to spread gleeful hate. Besides in real life, on the map, the location would be basically where the city is in the game anyway. The desert.... would be like a sideways Central Park or parts of the ghetto :/ Which isn't much of a better answer in the latter.

Yosheel

Not sure what's so hateful about it.

Anyway, I think we all agree that a Pokemon game set in a constant stream of cities without variation and natural places in between would be very boring. So that's why they add these weird out of place environments.

Pretty much. Sure each region has little variations and other things from their real world counterparts, but they also take a lot of inspiration for architecture and environments from those real world inspirations. Kalos was inspired by France, Kanto was inspired by, well, the Kanto region. I mean, Japan doesn't have any deserts but Hoenn does, that doesn't negate any of the other things that it DOES take from the specific region of Japan it's based off of though.
