Boy that sounds like Gen 4.

Somewhat unfinished state like ARMS, Splatoon 2, Overwatch, PUBG, Fortnite, DOTA 2, LoL, WoW....any game that seems to suit a service model.

Oh and FFXV with it's two season passes.

...I REALLY hope those are just rumors and nothing more.

Though if holiday 2018 is true, I apparently need to properly start playing Ultra Sun within the next few months. I've only fired it up for event Pokemon so far.

@Octane @Tyranexx So honest question ... what about these rumors is so bad? I think the bit about the engine being the same as BotW is pretty exciting. And it would be a bit strange if they section off certain portions of the regions, but they could make it work by having the regions unlock throughout the year so that people are continuously playing the game and to prevent overload of wild Pokemon in locations. By adding parts of the map as free DLC they can effectively lengthen the developing period of the game and make the region far larger than any previous game. Resolution and frame rate are nothing special but it's almost the same as BotW and light years better than the 240p sub 30fps Sun and Moon games.

That being said, the problem with continuous free DLC as unlocking portions of the map is that the whole continuous free content model employed by Nintendo was only used in Splatoon and ARMS ... two multiplayer online games. The model helped keep the player base interested in the game. I'm not sure this model will be beneficial to have on a predominately single player game like Pokemon. But this could be the revamp of the series that's been rumored so idk. We shouldn't judge until it's announced.

[This is assuming those rumors are even remotely true in the first place]

30fps would be a downgrade, notably in battle.

I am really hoping those rumors are not true, and I'm willing to wait quite a bit longer if it means most of what was listed above doesn't happen. I'm fine with some sort of DLC being released for the game, kind of like with the ORAS Battle Tower that was teased, but never really amounted to anything, but I wouldn't want it to be anything that would take away from the core, original experience.

On second thought, the bit about the engine makes me thing it's 100% fake ''the game runs on an engine similar to xenoblade chronicles 2 and botw''. What does that even mean? The engines aren't even similar if I had to guess.

@shadow-wolf Because it's a single player, about catching Pokemon. What's the point if they locked off an area? Meaning you cannot catch certain Pokemon. But if you play the game a year from now, you can. How are they going to handle trainer levels with regards to these extra areas? The game needs to be playable without them, but over-leveling should also be avoided once all those extra areas are available. And it's paid DLC... So that's probably two $60 games, half finished, with paid DLC on top of it. I really don't think this works for a Pokemon game.

I can imagine them adding more areas and updating Pokemon in the future to keep the game alive but keeping areas locked away from the player over a time span sounds really dumb and so do the rest of those rumors.

It's clearly false.

Be diverse not arrogant.

Pretty much this for the most part. It's a model that I don't think would work too well with the Pokemon franchise. If anything, I could see some of those rumored changes ticking off veterans. One of the recent complaints is the lack of a decent post-game; locking away areas, particularly post-game areas, would NOT do the series any favors in this regard. Some like me enjoy taking their time with the games, whereas others power through these games in a weekend or less (how they do it without "skipping" huge story sections, forsaking sleep, obligations, etc., I'm not sure).

I could see DLC for future areas as a thing, but the FPS, "engine comparison", and "unlocking areas over time" bits all seem fishy to me.

Also, I really don't put much store in 4chan as a whole.

@Octane @Tyranexx good points. Looking at it again I agree, the model just doesn't work well for a predominantly single player RPG like Pokemon.

@YummyHappyPills Believe it or not, but based on what I've heard (I don't have a 3DS), 30 fps would be an actual upgrade. I've heard battles and the overworld in the 3DS games suffer from frame rate drops so a locked 30 fps would be an improvement in that regard.

@shadow-wolf I say downgrade because the battles only ever ran at 30fps locked in Gen 4 and It. Was. SLOOOOOOOOOOW.

Then Gen 5 and 6 and 7 went back to 60fps battles, with 6 and 7 having FPS drops.

Gen 6 and 7 were literal slide shows at times. Mostly in Double battles. It was ridiculous.

Gen 6 only with 3D on, rarely if something was airborne otherwise.

Gen 7 yes, Sun and Moon in double battles, or notably multi battles, were pretty bad, and certain animations like Darkest Lariat were terrible.

But weirdly USUM smoothed a lot of that out. I wonder what happened.

I really hope fossils return in the next game. They're among my favorite Pokemon and it sucked that SM didn't include new one(s).

Most anticipated title for me that I don't think will be out 2018.

@YummyHappyPills 30fps doesn't make the battles slow, that's the length of the animations.

@-Green- I think that one of the reasons there aren't any in SM is because there weren't any dinosaurs in Hawaii. Though there are fossilised birds and I think there's some sponges as well. It is a shame. I like them too.

Hawaii reminds me. Where do we think the next games will take place anyways? I'm going to guess... New Zealand or Brazil.

Brazil would be great! I'd like to see what Pokemon live in the Amazon river
