[Pokemon] Black Sword vs. Bright Shield II

Post by Bier_Engel » 1 week ago

Did we let the Pokemon thread die? I can't find it. Anyway, some Sword and Shield news happened and I just think the character designs for the humans are awful. The old lady is fine but the champion wearing a cape with shorts... Just... what? And I don't even know what that's supposed to be around Milo's neck.



Also, I love that everyone is comparing the sword legendary dog to Koromaru:



The dogs don't look legendary to me, and why would a Pokemon need a human weapon to fight?

Yeah, Pokemon humans have been weirdly designed for awhile. What's with the rival's super-skinny pants?

Ooh, a Pokemon thread. I like!

So a prediction question to get things going: Pokemon's coming up on 25 years old and (I think) nearly 1000 monsters. Nintendo will always make Pokemon games until the end of time. But do y'all think in another 25 years, they'll still be creating new monsters? Or will they put a cap on it somewhere?

Hard to say, but it already feels like almost everything has been done at this point.

I don't know that they'd ever say "okay no more ever", but I can certainly see them slowing down on the new Pokemon creation. Theoretically if there's a Pokemon world map, once they've been to every region that should be it.

I don't know that I'll ever see a Pokemon I love as much as Baashaun though.

Baashaun love to fight and will always pick fights with other Pokémon, however, they seldom play fair. Trainers walking in their territory late at night may find themselves jumped by a whole herd of Baashaun. They often will appreciate being captured by a trainer because it gives them an excuse to battle.

It's a dark/fighting sheep that a complete arsehole.

I'd love to see a future Pokemon try its hand at procedurally-generated Pokemon and evolutions. Like a Spore that works better, or No Man's Sky. Or go back in time and borrow a few tricks from Monster Rancher since that series is dead anyway.

I'd love if Nintendo finally allowed a world map to be revealed. I keep it filed under the "unlikely, but possible" heading.
