Anyone else on media blackout for Pokemon Sun/Moon?



  • I've already been completely spoiled... yesterday's trailer surprisingly seems to have confirmed the Chinese leak we've had about a month ago, which also pointed to there being no gyms and to Kanto Pokemon having Alolan version.

    I can't believe they went with a Fire/Fighting starter again.



  • @sonmi I'd mark more of your post as spoilers.



  • Only blackout for new Alola native Pokemon. Everything else I don't mind learning.



  • @Rayne5 I guess I'm more of the same. I'm not too intense on my desire to media blackout, its just something that...I've bought the game. I'm very content not seeing anything about it and just exploring it in-game.

    Pokemon always really hits you over the head with new features and how to use them. So seeing everything before hand makes me just mash the A button when I play the game.



  • @Stormcrownn agreed. I used to check out everything before the older games would come out and it was fine when I was young but as I've gotten older it really spoiled the experience. This time around the less I see of what jumps out at me in the wild, the better.



  • I really wish I could go on Media Blackout for the game, but my friends will be talking about every new little thing, the new Pokemon are always plastered over the internet, and I can't resist the news anyway.

    Like others have said though, lots of great new things are coming in this generation I believe. Can't wait for the game.



  • Seeing as Sun will be the first Pokemon game since Gold and Silver for me I'm trying to avoid as many spoilers as I can, though a few new Pokemon have been spoiled for me. It's really a pain using Twitter and trying to not get spoiled. So far I've had less spoilers than I did with Metal Gear Solid 5 though so that's good.



  • @ChaoticMeltdown Not bad. Have you played Heart Gold/Soul silver? I just picked up a copy (HeartGold goes for $55-$65, and SoulSilver for $70-$85). It's such a crazy good game, and the "remasters" are even better. You can transfer pokemon (one way, with two DS's...) from HG/SS to White/Black 1/2 then to X/Pokebank.



  • @Stormcrownn I have not, I do kind of want to check them out and I may just do so through emulation because those prices are pretty crazy in my opinion (though I did just pick up Yakuza 2 for 50$) I've recently been told that Pikachu is able to wear different costumes in some Pokemon game and that sold me immediately. Because Lucha Pikachu is what I truly need.



  • I tried to go on media blackout, but after that last trailer my classmates told me about everything and gave up. It would be great to be surprised for all those things, but I'm glad I watched the trailer.



  • I don't really see what there is to spoil lol. It's always the same "story". Random pokemon. Three starters. I hope some surprises do come up but I've always found pokemon to be completely lack of surprises. I still like it and play but yeah.



  • My uncle works for Nintendo and he's getting me a hush hush copy of Pokemon eclipse. Best of both plus you can catch Sonic!



  • I am indirectly just because I haven't actively looked up anything or come across too much since I don't pay attention to Nintendo. Pokemon is a game I always enjoy but I don't think I'll ever be really hyped unless it's another remaster of the first two generations or something really wild, but I don't see them doing anything too off formula in this series.



  • Glad I still click on articles, I think the majority of the new pokemon look terrible, actually thinking to not buy this one, at least not day 1.



  • @Musou-Tensei Interesting, I'm completely opposite. The Pokemon in this gen look inspiring and well designed to me considering the Hawaii-theme of this gen. After 5th gen which had so many new ones who were hit or miss, and a solid lineup in X&Y, Sun and Moon Pokemon look really on point!
