I just hope that the Pokémon designs feel more original than cute drawn.

Re: Pokemon - Sun and Moon coming Holiday 2016

So going on a slightly more serious topic, what do you guys think the Sun and Moon mascots will look like?

Anyone else expecting at least half dragon?

Re: Pokemon - Sun and Moon coming Holiday 2016

Being half-Dragon makes sense, I get the feeling they'll be Fire-Dragon and Dark-Dragon, just because of Sun and Moon.

Nothing cooler than a Dark-Dragon, honestly.

inb4 their cut-scenes involve them descending from the sun/moon with epic as all hell music.

And I just realised that Fire-Dragon has already been done. Frick.

Re: Pokemon - Sun and Moon coming Holiday 2016

If we are basing this off Espeon and Umbreon, then Sun has to be part Psychic and Moon has to be part Dark.

I want them to be ballsy and make the Moon Legendary Dark/Ghost.

Re: Pokemon - Sun and Moon coming Holiday 2016

Fire/Psychic and Dark/Fairy or Dark/Ghost sounds about right.

I just realized they might base the mascots on the Japanese sun and moon gods. Amaterasu and Tsukuyomi respectively

Re: Pokemon - Sun and Moon coming Holiday 2016

Honestly, part of me is still convinced the mascots will be a new form for the legendaries of X&Y tbh. But someone mentioned poison multiple times and honestly, I'd like to see a Poison type legendary.

Then again, Ghost/Dark sounds really interesting.

I think there's a reason as to why they didn't reveal the mascot Legendaries. Maybe its a RBGY situation.

Why bring back XY mascots for Gen 7, lol?

I like Psychic/Fire and Dark/Ghost. Both types have ties to their respective version. Both are pretty decent type combinations.

If this new place is based on Hawaii, then we might be using Hawaiian folklore for the Legendaries.

If we are going full Hawaiian for the new region then expect lots and lots of volcanoes.

Honestly now I want a Pokémon based on a Tiki statue

I'm still not fully convinced this is a completely new gen, especially if the region we are exploring is Southern Kalos. I mean, the trailer never states it's a new gen. But if it has been actually stated, someone please correct me so I don't look like I'm stuck in the retro zone.

Why would they ever try to resell us XY instead of just making Z?

I'm not claiming they're trying to resell us X&Y lol. I'm saying I'm still of the opinion this game is connected to Kalos but of the part we haven't explored yet, based off of that post from the first page. Still would be Kalos, and probably with a wide range of new Pokemon and things like every Gen brings without actually being a new Gen. Especially since Zygarde hasn't even had a proper role in the games, though it is getting a movie.

I'm open to being wrong. I'm just saying it's what I personally believe at the moment.

It`s been confirmed to be a new gen through various websites and sources. Here`s one of them

Brings up a lot of good points. The ones I found interesting are

- The hotel looking like the Raffle Hotel in Singapore

- The concept art of the Pokemon Center... including the back of it? Where he points out the idea of a fully rotatable camera, it makes me wonder if, like Black and White did for the DSi, Sun and Moon will have extra features using the New3DS.

- The full picture of the bird Pokemon being super adorable.

I am very down with that, we'd be needing a fire-type version of Surf to do some volcano exploring though.

Which would be incredible.

for your trainer's sake i hope we don't know LAVA Dive.

there are some rumors that Red was standing outside that hotel... i'm not exactly convinced its him but wouldn't that be something nifty.
