    Default Pokemon Sun and Moon: your hopes and dreams

    OK, so now that it's officially announced and we know next to nothing about it, what do you want to see?

    All I want is 3D everywhere. Practically every other 3DS game makes full use of the 3D effect, so I've always been confused why the 6th gen games switch it on and off.

    Other than that, I don't know. Maybe another new type like Light or Space to go with the theme.

    How has it been confirmed that it's going to take place in a region based on Mesoamerica?

    Okay, I shouldn't believe everything Charles Legend says.

    (hopefully this doesn't become a debate on him because I said this)

    Hm, this reminds me of the Japanese Pokemon Intro OK! The lyrics seem to be linked to two different Pokemon Generations now.

    I would love for it to be a remake of Gold/Silver but most likely not gonna happen.

    Still excited to hear more news about this but does that mean there won't be a Pokemon Z this year? And I want more Pokemon Go updates Gamefreak!

    Hardly Mikachu Yukitatsu I was just making a guess based off the names alone do to the fact that the Pyramid of the Sun and Moon are located 30 miles (48 km) northeast of modern-day Mexico City.

    Besides I was thinking that if the region was based off of Mesoamerica, it could have given me a much better idea of what the bulk of biosphere of the Orre region could have been like had it not been a side game.

    I mean we have a good idea that Pokémon have many ways to evolve. so what if Shadow Pokémon were reinduced as being a form that a Pokémon can take that is like Mega evolution, I mean clearly Shadow pokemon are the game counter parts to the Dark Pokémon from the Pokémon TCG.

    So what if in Sun and Moon it's also reveled that Pokémon can undergo what is known as a "Golden Evolution" which would the game version of the Brake Evolution.

    As for Ash-Greninja I also see it as being some kind of Mega evolution equivalent perhaps it could be some kind of a call back to the Light Pokémon of Neo Destiny.

    Now while I'm probably wrong it would be a nice way to celebrate the 20th anivery by enriching the Pokémon lore by tying together ideas from other parts of the Pokémon franchise, such as from the Pokémon TCG.

    As for where Sun and Moon would take place I actually would not mind something like Spain or the Mediterranean or something like Singapore, like I said I only mentioned Mesoamerica do to the Pyramid of the Sun and Moon being in Mexico City that and the Strange Souvenir looking like the Moai statues of Easter Island.

    but as for the Pokémon Direct it seems as there some kind of new bird Pokémon that was shown as a wireframe perhaps a something like a Pileated woodpecker.

    Thanks Jeff. Looking forward to more news on this.

    I personally despise the 3D rubbish (it adds nothing for me) so as long as it's an option on the 3DS to have it switched off at all times, I'll be happy.

    Have thought for ages that there should be a 'Light' type. Would like to see it happen, although I wonder if Fairy type has stolen that thunder.

    I was waiting for that, too, but I agree that Fairy has already kind of filled that niche: strong against dark types, able to slay dragons, that kind of thing.

    I think that this is the sequel to XY and is still a part of the sixth Gen. Think about it for a minute. With every new Gen, the first stage of the Starter Pokemon is always revealed, right? So why were we not shown any new Starters? And having something to disrupt the sun and moon CAN cause ecological disturbances which could make Zygarde angry and come out of hiding and have a part of the main story like how Groudon and Kyogre did in Emerald. It may not be the main Legendary but it's lore could be explained more. I think this is a direct sequel. And I bet Pokemon we already know and exist can be put in the Pokebank and be transferred that way like how XY and ORAS can exchange Pokemon this way with some limitations. Trading and Battling may also be limited to exclude new Pokemon and Mega Evolutions. The mentioning of Poke Bank transferring never confirmed that Sun and Moon won't have direct interaction yo XY and ORAS.

    I'm excited about Sun and Moon! One thing that was discussed in a Facebook group was the idea of there being some sort of astrology theme. I think if that were the case, either they would revive the "Signs" concept from Pokemon Snap (with photography built into Sun and Moon??) or perhaps they would introduce Mega Evolutions for certain key Pokemon that could match the zodiac sign of the trainer based on the birthday built into the 3DS (i.e. if you're born on 15 May, you'd be a Taurus and maybe get Mega Bouffalant, or 27 December would be Capricorn with a MEGA GOGOAT YESSSSS PARTY). Maybe there would also be new Pokemon like... 12 different starters for 12 signs?

    hmm.. hopes and dreams.. I think it would be neat if they had something like 12 legendaries based on the 12 signs, sort of like what Magmar said. And the new team rocket type team would be capturing them and throwing the world out of balance or something. End of the day, you're the hero and free the pokémon and once you beat the Elite Four, you prove yourself a worth trainer and gain access to their different lairs so you can try and catch them. Probably won't happen, but it would be cool lol

    I want more Mega's, Nintendo. Please make more of them, and include them in these games, so that we pokemon players can get a lot more into the games! I am expecting a lot more Mega's than OR/AS!

    more mega evolutions would be nice. I think it would be pretty neat if they had more storylines in game, I mean besides becoming the pokémon champion and catching them all. I know it would never happen, but it would be cool if they made the game a little more like the open world games. I mean if you want to become pokémon champion, do it. if you want to join then rise through the ranks of whichever evil organization is Sun and Moon, you could do that, as well. Again I know if would never happen, but still would be pretty neat. Or actually, how about making more than one save file spot

    If they're doing more Megas, then at least introduce them for G/S/C starters already!

    actually I thought of one more thing haha. I think it would be really neat if the trainers pokémon leveled just like yours. you meet a bug trainer on route 5 in the beginning of the game who has level 10 pokémon? well you come back to him after you become pokémon champion and he now has level 45 pokémon. same with gym leaders and the elite four, where you could battle them more than once (gym leaders, elite four as well duh lol) but as time passes their pokémon get stronger as well. This way it gets a little easier to hit level 100 and train your pokémon, plus I think it would help keep the game fresh.

    It's gen 7, master rudy. I think more people are realizing that.

    The legendaries on the cover are massive, also.

    Perhaps there would be 9 special Legendaries in these games, the first one having 1 tail like Shukaku and finally the last one 9 tails like Kurama!

    I would like for Friend Safari to make a comeback. It was fun in gen 6 and should be used again. I have a feeling it will be. Another hope I have is a dolphin pokemon. Leaks tend to point in that direction. But, I'll believe it when I see it.

    I hear you Mikachu, but without Gabi or Louis around, we're not going to add the new Pokemon to either game just yet. If I can get a hold of Gabi (since she's been often easier to reach than Louis; no offence to you Louis in the event you see this post in the future), we might be able to get something worked out for Hangman, but I'll have to talk to Louis about implementing the new Pokemon in BrainStrain.

    Anyway, about the only hope I have regarding the two new games is that I'm hoping to receive both of them for Christmas.

    In hindsight I think this game was worth the wait. My favorite Pokémon game since Diamon/Pearl. The islands were nicely done and getting rid of the Gyms was a good and refreshing change.

    There are no gyms, but there still is an Elite Four (it's composed of Hala (Fighting), Olivia (Rock), Acerola (Ghost), and Kahili (Flying)).
