Pokemon Direct

Pahrak Model ZX

456 views

There were three announcements this morning:

 

1. Pokken Tournament DX! It’s Pokken on the Switch, adding in the fighters who have been added to the arcade version since the Wii U release PLUS Decidueye. Since I don’t have a Switch I don’t expect to be getting this, but it’s definitely interesting, and I look forward to watching how Decidueye plays.

 

2. Gold and Silver on eShop! I was hoping they’d do this. Gold was the first version I played on my own as opposed to sharing with my sisters, so Johto was my favorite region before Sinnoh came along. I’m very much looking forward to another trek across the region with my trusty Typhlosion again.

 

3. Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon! Not a whole lot of info at present, but Solgaleo and Lunala have new forms that sort of look like they’ve fused with Necrozma (or are wearing it as armor or something). I didn’t think we’d get these so soon, but Alola is great, so I am definitely not complaining! I really hope we can get those forms with pre-existing Solgaleo and Lunala, since I already bought both Sun and Moon…

 

This reminds me that I really need to transfer my Living Dex up to Gen VII. I’ve been meaning to do that forever…

1. Never really played Pokken, so I can't comment on that. I did enjoy the trollish "Pokemon is coming to the Switch... with Pokken Tournament DX!" and I sincerely hope that was an intentional troll.

 

2. Excited for these (probably getting Silver since I got HeartGold last time around), but where's my Crystal!? 

 

3. I'm hoping these lean more toward Black 2 and White 2-levels of extra content instead of simple director's cuts like Platinum and Emerald. And I have a feeling that the legendaries are actually forms of Necrozma. I think that he's using his prism powers to become versions of Solgaleo and Lunala made out of light.

Crystal’s absence is a bit odd.  Maybe its extra features require more time?

 

With how little we know about Necrozma it’s certainly possible.  But I think it’s interesting that the result looks like a suit of armor, since Necrozma’s ability is called Prism Armor.  Now I’m wondering if that ability is going to get passed to these forms too…

I'd like to think they're trying to port Japanese Crystal, meaning it'll include the Communication Centre thing.

 

But most likely there's a less cool reason.

If that's the reason I'll accept it, but I still wish they would at least acknowledge why they're ignoring Crystal.

i still want sinnoh ports :(

 

i was initially disappointed with US/UM not being on the switch, since Su/Mo ran so poorly on the normal 3DS, but gamefreak normally doesn't jump to the next system immediately, let alone with the "definitive" edition of a generation.

oh well.

 

i just hope if they do remake gen 4, it's on the switch.
