Lookin' good!

Just based off starter first forms and main legendaries, for the time being looks like I'll get Sun version and start with Popplio.

I'll be getting the game and starter that represent the first three letters of my username.

A trademark was leaked a few weeks ago with the names Solgaleo and Lunaala, which I assume are the legendaries' names but of course that is not confirm.

Name of the region is Alola

That was the best they could do? >_______________________________>

Tropical islands should be fun, though, like an entire game made out of the best parts of Hoenn's level design. Too much water, aye, IGN?

Oh yeah, unless I'm much mistaken it looks like the oveworld is a lot less grid-snappy than X and Y were, which I am very excited about. Other than that, this may well be the generation that looks most similar to the previous one. Guess they already pushed the 3DS about as far as they could with a lot of things.

Also my starter is the owl, because owls are always the answer.

Oh yeah, I did notice that while watching the Japanese trailer. I've heard numerous times that the region is likely based on Hawaii, from the design of the buildings and vehicles, to the license plates on said vehicles. Maybe this is the Orange Islands game that we all wanted as kids?

(On the list of things I really hope do not get taken from the anime is Ash-Greninja. I don't want that to be their replacement or augmentation of Mega Evolution.)

I was thinking about that last night. It seems like all the games on the same system tend to be based on the same engine with a few tweaks:
  • Red/Green -> Blue -> Yellow -> Gold/Silver -> Crystal
  • Ruby/Sapphire -> FireRed/LeafGreen -> Emerald
  • Diamond/Pearl -> Platinum -> HeartGold/SoulSilver -> Black/White -> Black 2/White 2
  • X/Y -> Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire -> Sun/Moon?

Definitely seems like a viable idea, but it's interesting to me that this is a whole new generation though. X/Y had the smallest new Pokédex entry though, so we may be able to see this as Gen 6.5 almost. On another note... I'm getting the bowtie owl. He is adorable and must get many hugs.

I'm a fan of the bow-tie Owl, not so much the other two starters and the two legendary Pokemon. They're not bad by any means but I'm left slightly disappointed by them after looking at various fan-art around the internet. Big fan of the region though, should be good fun! Also seen some speculation of the Fire starter evolutions being Fire/Poison which could be interesting.

The Moon legendary got me.

Now to wait for the final evos... the starters are just too cute for me to pick! You never know what you're into...

There's just something about Popplio that makes me want punch it maybe it's its overbaring forced cuteness factor.

I plan on getting Moon digitally and a physical copy of Sun.

I heard someone say recently that it reminds them too much of Oshawott. I'm not sure if it's that, I just think it looks a bit . . . amorphous? :P

There was another trailer released in Japan recently by CoroCoro. It's mostly the same, except for one minor scene addition


If you pause carefully at the 12 second mark, you can see another new Pokemon


A four-legged creature with a probably bushy tail and tall horns/ears. A dog? Deer? Possibly new Eeveelution?

Seems to be (one of) the Gen 7 early-game Normal type(s) - small, brown coloration, mammalian, etc. I liked Lillipup and Bunnelby, I have no idea exactly what animal this is supposed to be but it's safe to say I have decently high hopes for it.

It's kind of brown-ish, and we already have a brown Eevee, so I don't think it's one of those somehow. So far all of the Eeveelutions have had colors somewhat indicative of their types.

Here are some sketches of what are probably fake versions of the final starter evolutions they still look pretty cool though.
