@KaiserGX The models look pretty good but the environments are dull.

@Snaplocket well, they'd build Kanto/the new region up from scratch anyway, at most using a few of the assets that don't blatantly look like they got ripped out of a 3DS game (which the models don't for the most part)
Unless they just are that "lazy" and use SuMo assets at every corner I'd not get too worried about the environments yet.

Still of the opinion that "Pokémon XD in HD" would be (would've been?) the way to go for their first foray into HD development for the series but I'm not counting on that anymore after the leaks.

What a beautiful signature.

I've thought of another interpretation of the image, Pokemon Direct announcement tomorrow with the Direct coming May 29th (no teases tomorrow, just the Direct announcement).

@Grumblevolcano That is highly possible. I'd hope there would be at least some kind of teaser image with the announcement of the Direct date. Tomorrow is the day of reckoning! (not really...)

@Tsurii Yeah, the fact that we got a proper 3D Pokemon game what... 15 years ago now? It does seem rather ridiculous if it doesn't live up to XD's graphical standards. That said, what I would do for them to rerelease Colleseum and XD on the Switch... even though I know it'll never happen.

Pokemon GO is skipping Gens 4-6 to go straight to Alola forms of Gen 1 which suggests the rumours about GO integration are true.

I never played Pokemon XD, but I did just skim through a video of it on YouTube and I'm a little confused? It has forced camera angles, and the indoor graphics and camera angles are very much 2.5D.

I really don't see how Sun/Moon isn't on-par with this if not better in places? The big difference I see is that XD is not cel shaded.

@Grumblevolcano I'm struggling to see what that really has to do with these rumors at all. The new Pokemon games are supposed to be set in Kanto, not Alola. Help me understand where you're coming from.

All of these rumors point towards a complete reboot of the franchise and I couldn't be happier.
I know I'm in the minority, but that's honestly how I feel.

@Iconorobin That would make me sad. Pokemon is so much more than the original 151. Honestly, being overexposed to them as of late has made all of that nostalgia bias wear off and now some of them I honestly don't even care for. There are so many Pokemon in later generations that I'd take over so many of the originals.

@Grumblevolcano I wouldn't say its a hint at all tbh. Go was all gen I for a good while, and it makes sense to release the Alolan forms while Alola is still relevant.

Currently playing: Pokemon White (DS), Persona 4 Golden (PSVita), Transistor (Switch)

DarthNocturnal

I'd be shocked if they ditched... what, 700+ Pokemon for a reboot. I think the games will be Kanto-centric, not a giant reset button...

@Grumblevolcano @Buizel This could be the Go integration. Another way to go Alolan forms to the new Pokemon game without using the pokebank. Speaking of the pokebank, will it get its own app on the switch or are they going to change it to being connected with in game? That would be nice if they did that.

Lmao, if Gamefreak ever decide to scrap those 650ish other Pokémon in favor of Gen 1 they might as well cancel the series. That crap wouldn't go down well with ANYONE but the most blind nostalgia whores

@Harmonie
Well, they had to reboot at some point. Nothing lasts forever.
I'm happy about it because - if the rumors are true - I can have a sense of starting from the beginning.
I hope GameFreak will release expansions or sequels on a yearly or semi-yearly basis from now on that will incorporate new zones into the base game, thus expanding the world and the available amount of Pokémon. Much like MMORPGs work, if you catch my drift.

Ugh.

You know whats sad? This is likely to follow on from what FR/LG did.

Oh, your Golbat has max happiness, its trying to evolve, but it stopped for some reason.

@Harmonie I was thinking about that the Alola Pokemon being picked are the Alola forms of Kanto Pokemon so maybe as the rumours suggest the game coming after Sun/Moon you'd see some of the Alola forms in Kanto. But on the other hand that arguably goes against the new rumour about only having the original 151.

I'd take the original 151 if they at least expanded into Johto 'mon with an update in the future. Despite spending little time with gen2, some of my favourites come from that region. I hope the rumour isn't true, though.

@Iconorobin @Harmonie This part of the leak is slightly concerning, but if it is Kanto it would probably be the originals with the additional evolutions with access to the rest through post game or pokebank. No way I believe they would completely scrap the rest for the entire game even if it is a reboot.
