Wonder if there will ever be a generation where kangaskhan will get it's baby form as a Pokemon in it's own right...

It seems that as well as Red, Blue, and Yellow versions, the eShop has English, French, German, Spanish, and Italian versions of each version available for individual purchase.

I guess they couldn't include language settings in the Virtual Console menu or something?

I mean we did say, if they're announcing the new games it'd literally just be the titles so yeah since it's a short direct. There's literally no reason to feel hard done by.

Starters? Gameplay? Even the version mascots?

If what they say is intended that they'll be released in the Holiday season, then it's the same time gap we had between the X and Y trailer to the release and we had a lot more info with that.

Pretty fair to expect similar this time round.

Unless it's for the new handheld console?

I was still kind of hoping for Z but oh well
I guess if it's just Sun and Moon then Hoyle's thing about them being the Gold and Silver to XY gets a bit more likely at least

No, it's really not fair to expect the same. It was made clear from the start this would be incredibly brief and just an announcement drop

And to be honest, it did say Celebrate 20 years with us before the Direct started [well, on the whatever it is while waiting]. This was probably another case of over-hype.
Besides, we got some small teases from that concept art and the few other images on the 2016 segment.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pdTQ6NXTrE0

At 1:45, it looks like the new Pokemon Center. 1:47 is what looks to be a hotel. There's also numerous concepts at 1:44. Also at 1:45 are pictures of jeeps and a Poke Ambulance? There's also the wireframe of a Pokemon shown at 1:48.
I'm sure all of these have already been screencapped somewhere and posted, but I can get it done and posted here is no-one has done it beforehand [and on the Poke-Direct thread as well].

All of it looks very interesting.

No one would be complaining if we hadn't found all the trademarks and domains being registered the day before. The surprise got leaked with confirmations and kinda ruined it.

It wouldn't be unheard of for Game Freak to try and break their development cycle for Pokemon games each generation in order to try new things, hence why we got fully fledged sequels to Black & White instead of a third version. Also let's remember that we only got about 70 new Pokemon in X&Y, or whatever the number was it was the lowest amount of new Pokemon introduced in a single generation since Gold/Silver.

So if that's true, then who's to say this is how they are going to do things from now on? Slow the amount of Pokemon created which adds to what is already an overbloated and unbalanced metagame, and instead we will get new Mega Evolutions introduced in each new set of game. There's no rule that says Game Freak have to make the games a certain way every single time, new people will have come into the company with their own ideas and maybe Sun & Moon will challenge some of the Pokemon conventions. Third versions might have died out and all the Zygarde forms are something that is going to be introduced into Pokemon M&S (This is not just a Pokemon game, this is an M&S Pokemon game)

Either way everyone will still buy it no matter what.

gooseberry fool called it. I think I prefer the sex jokes from S&M since they take a little more creativity.

ANYWAY

Apparently there's a hotel in Singapore that looks like this, so potentially ruining my idea of a GSC to XY theory based on Germany.

I liked that during the bit with people getting frustrated it showed battles with misty's starmie and whitney's miltank. The reapers.

I loved the montage of all the kiddies playing various Pokemon games and pulling exaggerated faces, made me well emotional #nostalgia
Riding on the S&M hype teehee but it bothers me that people are like "is that it?" when A) short direct and B) we're not in any way entitled to gameplay reveals. Be happy with what we've been given, the concept art looks fab. Was super nice to see a bit of behind-the-scenes imagery tbh

Yeah I wasn't expecting any actual information about the game at all, so to see the extremely small amount of stuff we did get is a surprise. Also got my own personal theory that the IV/EV system is being revamped again with the ability to transfer stuff from RBY to S&M. It specifically mentioned just those two games and not the current gen, so whatever fix they've come up with is in those.

does it not just add more options for movesets? The only thing that's gonna be weird is the IVs but i imagine they'll either set them flat on transfer or they will need soft resetting for.

The IVs are up to 15 so there's a chance they could try and figure some calculation to possibly double some or whatever to fit in the 31 IV range, or of course keep it as is and all Gen 1 transfers are just terrible in terms of IVs. The issue lies in the EVs, which go up to ridiculous amounts higher than 255 and there are no limits so you can max all stats. That one would take some resetting or whatever.

Unless of course they do an overhaul. Which is what's implied by the lack of XY compatibility as it's suggesting you can't convert it into Gen 6's system but can do for Gen 7 which would also mean a conversion between Gen 6 and 7 as well is possible.

I have reason to believe they're tweaking the RBY ports to some degree; I saw on twitter something about move animations being edited (namely the ones such as Explosion which flash the screen) so I don't see them updating the EV/IV system in-game as unlikely. Though, yeah, they could just make 'mons from those games have terrible IVs but that'd suck.
