Pokken DX/UltraSun and UltraMoon/GS VC

Post by Aren142 » Mon Jun 05, 2017 2:11 pm

A Pokemon Direct has just been announced for tomorrow at 3PM BST and will last approximately 8 minutes. Something like this almost certainly will be a new game announcement, I'm expecting a new main series game, but will it be on 3DS or Switch and will it be the DPP remakes no one asked for or a sequel/third version of Sun and Moon?

Speculate away.

Personally think Stars is more likely but it could be anything.

If they announce Gen 8 I will be very surprised/slightly worried over what that could mean for generation turnover.

That said I usually don't buy the third versions or the remakes unless I don't have the original games of them anymore and if this is on the Switch it adds to the unfortunate problem that the Switch currently has where nearly all the main games are also available on Wii U or 3DS.

GOLD AND SILVER ON VC BOIIIIIIIIII (and releasing on my birthday thanks Nintendo <3)

also UltraSun and UltraMoon on 3DS and deluxe Pokken on Switch
Pokken I can get behind, never got round to it on Wii U so if i eventually get a Switch it'll be good to get into. USUM I'm more wary of, depends just how much they've changed. Guessing at least that there'll be new/different/slightly altered Totems judging by the Lycanroc and Mimikyu scenes, and I guess the story will revolve more around Aether trying to unlock Necrozma's power by fusing it with Solgaleo/Lunaala so kind of just a different reason for them to chase after Lillie and Nebbie. We'll see.

Delighted with Gold and Silver hitting the eShop, bit weird there's no Crystal version though. Ultra Sun/Moon should be good, I'd say you'll be on the right lines re fusing Solgaleo and Lunaala with Necrozma by looking at them on what I imagine will end up being the cover for the games. I wonder if they'll stick to the same plan as Sun/Moon (totem Pokémon and island Kahunas) or have a mix of totems and gyms, personally I'd like the totem/Kahuna system to stick around, worked quite well in my opinion. Pokken should be good as well, never got it on Wii U despite being interested in it after enjoying the demo.

Just a shame Gold/Silver aren't releasing until September though, weren't R/B/Y released quite soon after they were announced? at least it means we'll have Gold/Silver in September and then Ultra Sun/Moon in November. Might grab myself a copy of Sun to bide my time with over the summer.

I guess it was obvious from the fact that Pokken Tournament on Wii U didn't get the arcade version's DLC that they were going to release a Switch version with all that DLC. Didn't expect them to throw in Decidueye too but that's pretty cool that they've included a Sun/Moon Mon in the game. Shame I already bought the Wii U version, not sure whether I might trade it in and get the Switch version instead but that would probably mean having to climb the leagues again.

Not sure about Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon yet. Sounds a bit like third version territory if you ask me but with an alternate storyline, a bit like what Platinum did to Diamond/Pearl. Would be more excited about Gold and Silver on Virtual Console if I didn't just play through their remakes twice in the last two years.

All 3 announcements I can get on board with, although a bit wary of Ultra Sun/Moon as it depends how much is actually different. Seen some people complain about it not being Stars which is more funny than anything

If was hoping Stars was real :( I would have expected it'd have been a dual platform release at best though, no way they'd cut off the 3DS userbase.

I'm not sure about US and UM, if they're not that much different from the originals I think I'll pass up on buying them.

Supposedly they're looking to be more like B2/W2 which is entirely believable considering those were the last entries with another version. Makes sense too given we're getting two versions again instead of a third. Still yet to play SM though so guess I should get round to that eventually.

Must admit I was underwhelmed by the Direct. Don't really care for Pokken after playing it and being bad at it. Gold and Silver on VC is cool, just I can still play the originals and HGSS are the best games in the series. And the USUM was kind of dropped in the middle as a passing thing weirdly. I should have more hype for it, but I don't.

I'd guess similar to the VC releases of RBY, so about £10? I'll definitely be getting Gold, Crystal if they release it as well.

I'll be keeping my eye on how Ultra Sun/Moon develop, as I'm sure they'll be appearing on the Treehouse stream at some point.

Oh yeah thanks, they probably will be about £10. Think there only releasing gold & silver. Nothing was said about crystal.

Yeah I know :( some fans are thinking they're not launching Crystak due to the Japanese version having mobile features built into it, which wouldn't be function able in the re-release. Don't know why they couldn't just release it and just not have the features available to use. Or translate the American version to Japanese.

It's actually because when they did the Gen 1 games, everyone just went with Yellow and hurt the sales of Red, Blue and Green. People are more inclined to just buy the third version alone, whereas if they don't have one, they're more inclined to get both of the first two.

I hadn't thought of that actually, I really don't see how the lack of Crystal would get some people to buy Gold and Silver though. Looks like I'll just be buying Gold and waiting/hoping they release Crystal as well, really want to play Crystal at some point.

Because there are people who want everything. The third version enables people to get everything. Without that option, to get everything people have to get both versions.

I thought Mareep wasn't in Crystal.
Might get Pokken and will likely get Silver, as that was the 2nd gen one I had as a kiddly.
