Any day now this Pokémon fad will end soon, hur hur hur.

But yeah I am pretty hyped for Sun and Moon and I really hope that they deliver after the shit show gen 1 pandering disappointment that was gen 6.

They're both super lame. They don't need to remove Megas, just don't ever make anymore. Leave that trash behind and I expect fusions to be even more rare then Megas, Probably starters only.

Fusion? What?
If you're talking about synchro (like Ash-Greninja), every Pokémon should be able to do it and it's only for a "super move" apparently.

Really promising. SM are shaping up to be really good looking games and with Ohmori helming the development I feel that we are going to get something a bit different and less stale than what Masuda had in mind.

The changes that they have already shown off look very good, let's just hope that trend continues. Either way good for GF.

Fusion, synchro whatever. I'm not basing this off of facts or anything it was just a guess that if it's like ash greninja where the Pokémon adopts features of the player I doubt game freak would do that for all the Pokémon, starters on the other hand I could see being more likely. But hey, just guesses and speculation.

This is why they wont put real pokemon mechanics (battling, leveling etc) into POkemon Go

They want your ass to go buy the real deal

It wouldn't be a certified Pokemon thread without people constantly reminding us how much they hate Megas.

Megas are cool and fine, synchro might be but they won't fuckin tell me anything about it.

Also bad news to the folks that hate it, neither is going anywhere :)

But yeah I'm thoroughly hyped for Gen 7 based only on the designs we've seen so far. There just need to be a lot of new ones pls.

I think this is the first time in a long while where I reeeeeeally feel the urge for Pokémon. Like I want to play a new Pokémon so badly right now. I was super close to buying Yellow on 3DS but like, I could just play my old copy and besides, that's Kanto and I've done that multiple times. I could restart one of my games but I've never done that and like keeping the files.

Sun and Moon can't come fast enough.

Said millions of times in the thread already, but yes both are lame :p. Shame I do like some of the mega designs, but overall I don't like the idea or how majority even look..

As for sales that's really great. Imagine if they had an NX version ready

I don't see why "biggest pre-orders ever" is always news when it happens with basically every major release.

Even if there's an insane power creep this gen, there's no way Parental Bond will ever stop being good in its current state. Some things are just too OP.
Then they need to finally do an actual hard nerf/change.

I don't hate megas, just don't care for something that is neither a new Pokémon or a proper cross gen evolution.

Megas are burst mode form change and just borders a little to close to Digimon territory for my liking.

Pokemon Go effect and it's not surprising.

If it weren't for Go I wouldn't even have considered buying another Pokemon game. I can't wait.

You know I meant to an actual Pokémon.
Well I was talking about abilities.

Pokemon themselves will never get buffs or nerfs until Game Freak get off their lazy asses and actually start editing some of their base stats.
