Today, the new Pokemon direct was unveiled! Now it's time to scrutinize everything about it! That's what I do, sorry.

Let me get the discussion started. Did you notice, that when they discussed the "Wild Area," the music sounded JUST like "The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild?" (Start the first clip around 7:42, and the second around 0:26.)

Hm...not saying it's a crossover, but...why is it like that?

What else did you notice?

Nothing is better than playing a game and having a character say something like, "What was your name again? I forgot. Oh! Forgotten!"

@ForgottenArctic Interesting, that's pretty neat. I'm guessing they did that to represent the open world part. I saw in a video that there is a new squirrel Pokemon on one of the spectators shirts at the gym, not sure where it is in the direct though.

Well excuuuse me princess

@MasterJay Hmm, couldn't find it. I saw something that looks like a duck on someone's shirt, though. I'll let you know if I find anything!

Honestly, the beams that signified the locations of Max Raid Battles reminded me of the beacons from BotW footage that I've seen. (Yes, I'm one of the ten people who hasn't played it yet. I'm hoping to fix that in a few months)

@Tyranexx don't worry, neither have I. Played the demo, that's it.

The beacons do look similar, with the Pokemon beacons being dimmer. Strange.

My guess is that it is a deliberate homage, or a placeholder.

@Heavyarms55 Maybe. Hopefully it's not trying to ride off the success of BotW or, Hyrule forbid (get it?,) just rip it off.

@ForgottenArctic I mean I often wonder where is the line between an homage and a rip off? With major companies like Game Freak/Pokemon and Nintendo, my money would be heavily on homage.

@Heavyarms55 Yeah, maybe you're right. But, sorry, I'm still not convinced. Everyone's entitled to their opinion though, so I'll stop.
