@  acceptance : (15 June 2018 - 07:05 PM) Keep the spirit of Sly Cooper alive through Ghost of whatever-the-shit.
@  acceptance : (15 June 2018 - 06:55 PM) Also the fact that people are excited for a Sucker Punch game in 2018.
@  acceptance : (15 June 2018 - 06:41 PM) The fact that I can actually preorder Kingdom Hearts 3 makes my soul dance.
@  Mig64 : (15 June 2018 - 02:36 AM) I'm not really sure how I feel about it, it felt a bit too different, could either work very well or not work at all, no middle ground.
@  acceptance : (13 June 2018 - 12:44 AM) I'll be honest, I'm completely out of touch with Fire Emblem. I couldn't so much as name a single character past Awakening.
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) not having super high hopes for it
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) the names and art are interesting
@  Fire Blazer : (12 June 2018 - 10:18 PM) new FE looks ok
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 09:07 PM) A post on SF refers to "brigade based tiles" and "squad based controls"
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:59 PM) Those generic units following the character give me hope that we can have actual large scale battles instead of turning everything into a glorified skirmish.
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:56 PM) Seems like a very fitting name for the character, then.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:27 PM) oh hey doing more research on that - the "gard" part is in fact cognate with "guard," so Edelgard approximately means Nobility Protector.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:26 PM) (Also, Edelgard is an interesting name - -gard is a common ending for old Germanic feminine given names [think Hildegard] and Edel is German for noble)
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:24 PM) The thing I thought might be interesting for gameplay is that it looked like maybe there were "units" that were actually ~a dozen generics. You can see a large group of archers and a large group of mages attack simultaneously.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:24 PM) I appreciate that Edelgard is wearing pants and not exposing her cleavage. These are useful things in battle.
@  Rujio : (12 June 2018 - 07:23 PM) There's not much there.
@  Mig64 : (12 June 2018 - 07:18 PM) Hey, guys, did you watch the Fire Emblem: Three Houses trailer? Thoughts?
@  acceptance : (12 June 2018 - 12:19 AM) Abyss 3DS will never be a thing that makes sense to me lol.
@  Fire Blazer : (11 June 2018 - 08:33 PM) but maybe they'll just remake it from the ground-up one day, who knows
@  Fire Blazer : (11 June 2018 - 08:33 PM) I already played it for PS2 and 3DS, so I think I'd have passed on that

I don't know if anyone else on this forum cares, but here goes...SPOILERS AHOY!

 

 

It's of interest to note that one girl revealed in this video was apparently part of a final starter evolution leak a while back:

 

Spoiler

 

So yeah, looks highly likely (I say, while hoping with all my heart that it is not true because it has not been OFFICIALLY confirmed yet) that we're getting YET ANOTHER Fire/Fighting starter.

 

Supposedly though, according to another leak, there's two final starter evolutions. We'll see about that.

 

On the brighter side: I AM ABSOLUTELY IN LOVE WITH THE ICE VULPIX. I have dubbed it Snowpix and it will be mine. And I will love it to death in whatever the new Pokemon Amie is. <3

Man, Exeggutor is high as a kite. 

 

I'd also like to point out that Alola Ninetales > Alola Vulpix in my opinion.  :ph34r: 

 

Still though, I'd love to see if they alter the stats at all.  Exeggutor has a pretty nice type now but needs the stats to back up being a grass dragon.  Please have tanky stats.

 

(Also, we get Alola Lapras when?  I have wanted a viable Lapras in forever)

You are entitled to your opinion. :P My opinion is that the wispy things on Icetales turns me off. That being said, Icetales could possibly be a dragon Pokemon's worst nightmare, with that ice/fairy typing.

 

As for stats, according to Pokemon's website on Snowshrew:

 

"Sandshrew’s body changed to adapt to the harsh environment of the snowy mountains. The Alolan Sandshrew has a shell of ice covering its skin, which is like hard steel. It excels defensively, but it lacks flexibility and can’t curl its body into a ball like a Ground-type Sandshrew can.

Its heavy weight makes the Alolan Sandshrew slower than a normal Sandshrew, but the claws on its hands and feet allow it to move across ice without slipping. When it wants to move quickly, it uses its stomach to slide across the ice like a curling rock."

 

This seems to imply that Sandshrew's stats will be altered, so this might be a thing for all the alola forms.

I'm really hoping that they fully explore the alola form thing. If we're only going to get like just these Pokémon with alerted forms it won't make much sense. I'm not asking for every Pokémon to be altered mind you, just a decent chunk(maybe 30?)

Edit: more important than the number however is how well it's explained in game lore-wise

This seems good. I can't wait to see how it all lays out, some Pokemon seem legit, like that new Lizard they had that has the ability corrosive so it can hurt steel with Poison moves.

The Pokemon website has some interesting descriptions on how they came to be, such as sandshrew/vulpix moving into snowy mountains and having to adapt. Exeggutor's dragon typing isn't explained at all, though its height is.

 

Not in-game, but it's something, at least.

I've said this already but it's just so weird

 

not bad, just like man, it's gotten kinda crazy again, lol. I'm not sure you can exactly call this playing it safe or not, haha. I mean in a way it's interesting I just don't know how to feel about this. I'm neither excited nor appalled, just kind of neutral like "ok then..." lol

 

new Vulpix is kinda cool I guess

really because even I don't see what I did there LOL

 

oh hey so those leaks I saw earlier (I think that's what they were) were made official eh. Raichu doesn't look quite as cool IMO but whatever, it's interesting they gave Raichu any attention lol. Marowak is cool and Meowth being dark is... idk, I can kinda see the anime having an alternate alohan or w/e version of Meowth competing with Team Rocket Meowth though (assuming Team Rocket is still a thing, it's not like I watch the anime anymore... >_>')

^ This, basically. lol

Pretty sure everyone did. People are REALLY good at data mining these days... And apparently have WAY TOO MUCH TIME ON THEIR HANDS to be doing this crap. I for one was hoping it was fake because at this point, even Game Freak is splicing things. Those ears? Dragonair.

 

I am bitterly disappointed in this because I know it won't actually KNOW Surf. And even if it did, Pikachu wouldn't. Because heaven forbid we get a surfing pikachu that isn't an exclusive event! >_>

Honestly, what the hell is new Exeggutor? Why is it Dragon type? Because to hell with reasoning? It doesn't look like one. The others seem okay so far. I like the Vulpix and Raichu.

The Z-moves look silly and feel awkward imo. What next? Dab to no-sell the next attack? Did we need limit breaks?

I don't know, maybe I'm getting old, but it feels like we're really jumping the shark here. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

That said, the new mons don't look too bad - except for why they had to make sand castles evil - don't give people a reason to kick other people's sand castles over and make kids cry.

Exeggutor is dragon type for the dragon palm. It's a bit of a stretch even for Pokémon(heh), but that's the only explanation I can come up with.

Wait...evil? Excuse me while I go look at serebii.

 

Wait, got distracted by Pokemon Snap being released in Europe.

 

Okay, here we go.

Sunabaa is a grudge that dwells inside a pile of sand turns into a Pokemon. Truly a terrifying creature
Shirodesuna steals the life force from other Pokemon. Those Pokemon's grudges turn into a new Sunaba.

.........................................

 

Does it hold a grudge because some kid shoved a shovel in its head? WTH man.
