    Speculation Future Pokemon Game Speculation Thread

    Well this is part of the problem, Game Freak has said that they want to run themselves like an indie/small scale dev. They don't really want to operate like a big AAA dev like everyone expects them to be on a console like the Switch. I think they've been reluctant to go in this direction but...

    Who is saying that BW were failures? I never said that and no one on this thread seems to be claiming that. I said that it's the worst selling and there's no concrete evidence to say Unova is more popular than Johto (if anything there's more evidence of the opposite) but that doesn't necessarily...

    It doesn't really matter if it's "put on a pedestal". What matters is how many fans like it, not how highly they rate it. A decent game is just as good as an amazing game if everyone still likes it enough to buy it. Again, no they couldn't have. They need an emulator to run them, so unless...

    Maybe, but that argument works both ways so you really can't turn around and say that Unova is more popular than Johto. You need something more definitive to make that claim. So first of all, for them to port the old games the system needs to be supported, and Game Boy games were not supported...

    Yeah, I think if they wanted to hint towards both a traditional remake and Z/A, it would've made more sense to reveal the traditional remake first and reveal Z/A in something like a summer Pokemon Presents, not the other way around. If there was a new game this year, Pokemon Day would've been...

    This. Pokemon pretty much IS the Game Boy. The main series game far eclipsed everything else in terms of sales and popularity aside from Super Mario Land and Tetris. So having Pokemon missing is a MAJOR loss for the GB's NSO lineup and makes that system feel relatively undesirable. No question...

    Speculation Future Pokemon Game Speculation Thread

    I would be fine with a later reveal of NSO ports being this year's "game", but other than that, revealing another game would feel cheap and might detract from Z-A and Gen 10.

    Game Freak directly hasn't. IDR if TPC has, but it definitely hasn't been much. But yes, they've had little to no experience with consoles before the Switch and largely ignored them until the Switch became a hybrid and they HAD to exist on console. So it makes sense that they would incorrectly...

    It's probably because they lived in a handheld bubble up until the Switch. They probably didn't understand why home consoles are so popular because Game Freak and most of TPC never really touched past consoles like the N64, GC, and Wii and didn't really understand what kind of experiences people...

    Speculation Future Pokemon Game Speculation Thread

    Well I think the major reason they were trying to attract mobile players is that back then they thought dedicated gaming devices were dying and mobile was the future, they've gone on record saying they didn't think the Switch would succeed. They likely thought attracting mobile gamers was the...

    I think there's a minor chance main series VC games could be announced in the fall, but beyond that I think this is all we get. If there were going to be a spinoff game, it probably would've been announced now since it would need sufficient marketing. As is I think TCG Pocket may be all we get...

    It might be just a CGI trailer and Game Freak typically does not jump on new hardware Year 1, but IDK. The timing is so suspicious. I could see a hardware delay being the only reason this game isn't a Holiday 2024 title seeing as they've religiously had something for the holiday season every...

    Speculation Future Pokemon Game Speculation Thread

    All reasonable guesses, but I think there's one factor you may not be considering in why this is a 2025 game. It's just a teaser trailer so I may be reading into things too much, but those graphics do look pretty advanced. And there are rumors of a Switch successor that was expected to come this...

    Also RIP Unova stans. Gen 5 fans must be very upset that they skipped to Kalos. Although we might get a Unova remake a few years later.

    I suspect it's like a BW2. It seems very modern and present day.

    Speculation Future Pokemon Game Speculation Thread

    I suspect this might be a Switch 2 title that was intended to release this year but was forced to be delayed because (according to rumors) Nintendo delayed the Switch 2 in 2025. That would explain so much. I'm not mad. This game might finally do Kalos justice, and I can live with shiny hunting...

    What a bombshell. No mainline game in 2024. Pokemon Legends Z-A confirmed for 2025. I would've never guessed that in a million years. And I'm hyped.

    Honestly I didn't mind BDSP because I liked base DP enough. They're not the best games ever and Platinum's additions improved them significantly, but I find them fun enough. Base BW1 though? BW1 felt like a step back in almost every way and BW2 is the way I want to experience Unova, not BW1. So...

    Yeah, I don't think they'll mix and match regions for this reason. It won't feel fair and different parts of the fanbase might want different styles of games for different reasons. What if you want a faithful remake of Unova? Or a Legends style take on Johto? You're pretty much getting screwed...

    I mean... if you're counting mobile spinoffs then yeah, but we rarely get any console spinoffs anymore.
