The biggest surprise of the Pokemon Direct, killing of the Stars rumor and showing that the 3DS still has legs.

Featuring "an alternate story" and the new legendary forms (looks like they fused with Necrozma-- an inversion of Kyurem absorbing Reshiram and Zekrom).
Even if they aren't full sequels a la BW2, people forget how much Platinum tweaked and changed things. Definitely on board.

Sign me up as well.

I'll definitely need to see more of what's new but I'm positive that'll happen at E3 at some point.

The only "negative" thing I can think of right now is that the games don't appear to be sequels but it's just like you said, Platinum actually added a good chunk of new stuff and changed Sinnoh quite a bit. And that first bit of footage was basically all new stuff apart from the protagonist's house so I'm hopeful.

I love the Orré games despite them being really darn similar, hoping for a repeat of that. Main difference being that this is a main series game

It's too soon to decide considering how short the trailer was, but I think I'll skip these entries.

I wonder if they will show these on the Treehouse stream. I will definitely be getting these. Lunala and Solgaleo looked amazing in that trailer.

Want: Mario Party Top 100, Atlus games, Psychic Spectres for the 3DS. For the Switch Kirby Star Allies, Yoshi and many others.

Finished the Alola Dex.
Now playing Stories, Crystal and Ultra Sun.

Huh, that was unexpected. Its been awhile since I posted here and this dragged me over.

Well, can't really speculate much off of the few screenshots we have. Although I will say I find the ultra box legendaries fairly.... lacking in design so to speak. They clearly used the base models and just attached some armor (necrozma) onto various parts. Unlike kyurem, keldeo, or giratina, which had complete model updates.

I look forward to these games, although I was a bit depressed with sun and moon's awful PSS (festival plaza) that made the games short lived for me as I moved on to other stuff. Hopefully they fix that and add a lot to the story and post game, thankfully they have a lot to work with because of how well done sun and moon was in those regards (meh postgame though tbh, good step up from gen 6 but they have room to go further).

I'll wait for Super Pokemon Master Ultra Moon Special Edition HD Deluxe.

Just kidding, I'll end up buying both.

Yeah I don’t know either.

I hope they keep the Plaza. I always hated the PSS (only an I missing in there, if you catch my drift) and how obnoxious it was but you can ignore the Plaza if you're one of those sad existences who don't like that

I'm a bit hopeful that we might get whatever they teased with those little construction sites in most of the towns in Alola. Many people expected that stuff to be built in a sequel, myself included, and I really hope the games being an alternative..whatever doesn't mean we won't see that stuff expanded on.

The cover legendaries will have to grow on me...not a fan but I also wasn't a fan of Bruxish when I first saw it and now it's one of my all-time favorites.

Wait ... alternate story!? Maaaaan, I was hoping for a B2W2 with a teenage Lillie, Hau and Gladion, reformed Luaamine etc. Now I really don't know what to think of this anymore. I'll have to see more of it. Though, I can guarantee that I'll buy them day one.

I would have bought on Switch, but... for 3DS I'm having a hard time justifying buying this. And that's really saying something because I buy everything.

Are the box legends new forms of Necrozma or Solgaleo/Lunala?

This is what I've analyzed. They will have buddy Pokemon that walk with you as they show a wingull, and alolan meowth, and litten with this certain character. There also will probably be something with ultra beasts and with the necromanza. I think it also looks a lot nicer and wouldn't be surprised if it was an exclusive for recent 3ds systems. This game looks cool and I will be pre ordering it. (Of course I would need a 3ds.)

Premiere Pro. Only another ten hours left.

I honestly can't see what these games can do to make Alola exciting again, much less a mere year after the originals. Yeah, you can point to games like Platinum and BW2 making exciting changes to their regions, but the thing is those games had significant issues they could fix or room for expansion. Alola doesn't really have the same room to grow. The islands are all full, so there's not much room for new areas, and the dex is already pretty large and diverse so a dex expansion would be largely pointless. I just don't see the potential in this game.

Overall, I'm on board as well. As mentioned above, Platinum really added quite a bit to Sinnoh, and while Emerald didn't add as much, I liked how it combined the stories of Ruby/Sapphire and added new areas like the Battle Frontier (I sucked at getting symbols, but it was fun!). I feel like some people are jumping the gun a bit when they're saying that Ultra Sun/Moon aren't adding enough. We've barely seen any footage yet!

To be honest though, these sequels seem to be coming almost TOO quickly; I thought they should have waited another year. My best guess is that they wanted to get these out before Nintendo completely drops 3DS support.

...Plus, I still haven't gotten around to playing Pokemon Sun yet. XD

It really frustrates me to see the amount of hate the game has been getting, we've only seen roughly 15 seconds of game footage, and aside from the tiny amount that was shown, we know almost nothing besides that it's an alternate story to Sun and Moon, which could potentially mean a lot has changed. We've been getting a third version of Pokemon games for years besides XY and potentially BW if you don't count B2W2, and I didn't see quite as many people get mad over Platinum or Emerald being released, so why USUM?

Plus Ultra!

Either they're upset that this isn't on Switch or aren't interested in revisiting Alola this soon. I don't think a lot of people wanted a 3DS update of SM in 2017.

Not surprised by this announcement actually. Kinda similar with Black & White 2. Both games went to the DS instead of the 3DS that just came out. And Pokken going to Switch was no surprise either.

Yo, what's up? Not a fanboy to any console, but I do spend time on Xbox 360 more than anything else at the moment. I play a lot of fighting games such as Street Fighter, Tekken, and Dead or Alive.

@NintenNinja16 I feel like the main reason why people act so - I don't wanna say stupid but...- stupid is some kind of Switch honeymoon phase.

A ton of people always act like their old systems magically disappear from the world as soon as something new is released and how they absolutely can't ever """justify""" buying games on a "dead system".
I mean, there's a hell of a lot people who haven't played Pokémon since Red or haven't played Pokémon at all before but somehow Ultra Sun and Moon would've been day one purchases for them if they were on Switch? Sure. And my ass is a strawberry.

Not gonna lump everyone together but it's mostly people on the internet being entitled idiots. It's a new thing to complain about, so Pokémon on Switch is suddenly everyone's most anticipated thing ever.

It's the same with every new 3DS release that's coming up tho. "Mimimi, why don't they just port Ever Oasis to Switch instead. What a waste of money!"

Also, said it before but...the people who think Alola was barren seriously need to either actually try and do everything in the region, play the older games again or just shut up. Then again, if I were to believe everything I read online basically every game ever is an empty, badly designed POS every nine-year old could make. So what do I know

and just to be sure...this probably reads a lot "angrier" than I am. The people who've been around the forums for more than a week should realize that's just how I say stuff by now
