    They're Normal / Ghost Type.

  • Most of this Evolutions series has been pretty bad, but this episode is outstanding.

  • I know some people are still confused what this game even is, so here's a primer:

  • k so here's my impression's of Pokemon legends so far.

    i'm still not very far into the game but i think i've now played enough to get a good enough understanding of what the game plays like.
    after getting through all the boring lame ass fluff at the beginning, i think Pokemon Legends is definitely the best Pokemon has been in about 20 years now.

    the RPG's are ok but the gameplay and story got stale a long time ago and Pokemon was never hard in the first place but they insist on making the RPG's increasingly more handholdy with every single RPG Pokemon they do. i get that "it's just a kids game" but i've always asked, what about us older kids who actually grew up with Red & Blue? are they ever going to make something new for us instead of the same old 8 gym leaders, elite four, end that they've been doing forever now?

    i think that's what most older peoples issues with mainline Pokemon series really has been. it's certainly been mine.

    but i'm happy to say that i think Pokemon legends is the change up that Pokemon needed. what most of us older fans, who lost interest in the series, have been looking for and will get people re-interested in the franchise.

    i like how similar this game feels to the mainline pokemon games while being very different to the mainline games at the same time. it has a dumb ass story about a kid that "just fell out of sky", but as long as you ignore that and just play through the game enjoying catching mon's it's probably the best Pokemon game ever since gen 2 or 3 in the early 2000's

    anyway that's just my thoughts on the game so far and i'm not far in but i'm looking forward to seeing what the rest of the game has to offer and hope they continue innovating in this Legends style of game in the future


  • Junichi Masuda announced ahead of this Pokemon trailer that he's leaving GameFreak to become "the Miyamoto" of The Pokemon Company

  • it looks so good. i'm hyped


    Website has a VERY important detail the trailer didn't go into:

    0_1654097596159_any order.png

    That's way more hype than anything shown in the trailer.

    While I'm posting anyway, let me just toss out some observations / theories:

    Those Pokemon Center Gas Stations mean you no longer have to walk into and out of a building to heal.

    It is weird for actual fruit like Oranges and Grapes to be there when Berries already represent fruit in Pokemon.

    Bit obvious, but the design of the caves shown all but confirms some form of climbing traversal will return in this game.

    People are speculating the Legendary Pokemon might end up as vehicles the player rides. Seems likely with their design.

    Our rival this time appears pretty traditional, a personality we've seen often before, but she happens to be named Nemona. That's AN OMEN backwards. Calling it now. She's the villain of the region. They're going to have a Rival / Villain. The website hammers home that she's "your friend", which makes her even more suspicious.

  • my new favourite pokemon name

  • So which version is everyone planning to grab? Fire Lizard or Jet Laser Lizard?

  • I'll say something nice. That song in the trailer was kinda nostalgic. It reminded me of something out of Pokemon Stadium on N64. The assets look more high res than Arceus, but the art style is still 'bleh'.

    Don't think I'll bite on Pokemon again until they mix up the formula even more, but it's a solid step I suppose.

  • @dipset said:

    until they mix up the formula even more

    If you just want a different genre, there's a ton of spinoffs. They've already mixed the formula up alot between Arceus and this, although I wonder how much from Arceus will stick with this one.

  • i don't think i've actually been as excited for a Pokemon game since Pokemon & Silver as i am now after seeing the latest Pokemon Legends trailer.
