So even though Gamefreak tends to do their own Direct stuff by themselves, still hoping that E3's Direct will have something for S&S. It's the third year of Nintendo's biggest success console in a while, so they're gonna want to continue building momentum.

I like that it's taking longer than usual to get new info. I hope it means they don't reveal pretty much everything about the games.

I just want to see the Starter Evolutionary Line. Revealing them before leaks could help generate hype.

I just want to know the local Route 1 Rodent and Bird, maybe something else snuck in to wet the appetite for more. (I know we had Pikpek and Yungoos revealed at this point)

As for Ash-Greninja, I think it was fine. Considering Yajima and the anime staff needed a work-around to get Ash fighting megas without having to resort to giving him a mega-ring or using a past pokémon (Charizard) to overshadow the current team, it makes sense. I just wish the games could have used the synchro concept.
I get that; but I still didn't like it. Regular Greninja looked great and work great giving Ash a special Greninja form to make him more shonen-hero-esque just felt ridiculous and dumb. I get what they were going for with the Ash-Greninja stuff, I just still didn't like it and wished maybe Ash did get a Mega Evolution of an older Pokemon; maybe not Charizard but maybe something he never had before that could just become a dark horse or an unexpected assist alongside Pikachu, Greninja and the like.

So a question for the Pokemon Go players.

With how many candies and the Magnetic Lure does Magneton evolve into Magnezone? Serebii states it is 50, whereas Bulbapedia says it is 100.

Also Spider, if you are free to battle sometime, I could really use some Sinnoh Stones.

I like Ash-Greninja, but seriously, the only difference between that and a Mega Evo is that you trade needing a ring for feeling your partner's pain, its basically IS a Mega Evo, so they should've bit the bullet and given Charizard one like they were obviously planning, or even have BOTH, so Ash can have a mega evolved partner, and another one through a loophole.

(Its not like Greninja isn't the first thing people talk about X&Y, so he ended up at least being equal to Pikachu in the fandom's eyes ANYWAY, trying to avoid overshadowing failed.)





On a positive note I'm looking forward to Pokemon again for the first time in, oh, since Sun & Moon got my blood pumping

I'm digging the outfits for once looking normal without trying to hard to look cool, aside from the style of sunglasses (I remember King of the Hill commenting on those AT LEAST a decade ago, if not more ) and I'm sure they're customizable, and if she ends up in the anime I doubt she'll wear them 24/7. (Unless they go with a gym leader again like B & W.)

My hope for the new games is that they do not hand hold and talk down to you the way that Sun and Moon did.

Pikachu and Eevee were also pretty terrible for that. Most gamers know gen 1 like the back of their hands! We don't need heavy handed directions to the point that there is no longer any exploration/discovery.

There should be a "tutorial" switch which you can turn on if you're not used to the franchise and turn off if you just want to play the game. (or at least make it as little as "random kid who mentions the button you hold to run" and the obligatory person catching a Pokemon to show how it works)

We've been asking Game Freak for the simple ability to answer the "Do you know to catch a Pokémon?" question since Generation 3.

Them not caring is as much tradition at this point as Team <vaguely outer space-related word here>.

Eh, just as long as we don't get a basic 2-hour cut-scene like the start of SM, I'll be fine. (I get it, it introduces some of the story concepts and such even if it spoils the "Aether is the evil one" plot twist obviously, but at least let us get going before feeding us this stuff)

Learned that the recent collection of Orange Islands episodes are missing a few episodes.

They obviously don't want to detract from Detective Pikachu with Sword/Shield info, I imagine once it's out of theaters we'll get more info.

Episodes 90 and 99, right? They're banned for having blackface Jynx in them.

Always wondered how Mr. Popo dodged the bullet with that one. Enough to a point blue popo became a joke.

I suppose many factors.

Different demos, Pokemon had an all ages as opposed to dbz being not exactly for little kids. Old enough that one wouldn’t be stupid to relate a black faced alien to an actual black person.

Also may be the context, where as Jynx was the most human lookin Pokemon and in context of Pokémon being akin to “slaves” to their trainer probably doesn’t help.

Where as popo is presented with kami (a green alien) and as opposed to a slave popo is more Butler type.

Also since piccolo is the “black guy” of dbz, wouldn’t that make Kami also black?
