    Default Gen 9

    Gen 9 was just announced today. Since we don't have a forum for Gen 9 yet, I'm posting this here.

    The new starters look interesting. I'm particularly interested in seeing what the fire starter turns into.

    1) There's no excuse for laziness, but I'm working on it!
    2) I will live forever or die trying
    3) It's only funny until somebody gets hurt...............then it's hilarious

    Oh, I didn't expect another Pokémon title to be on its way.

    Seriously loving Sprigatito, it even has a fun name! ^_^ Not really sure about the whole open world concept, that was nothing that was really important to me or that i really wanted for a Pokemon game, honestly I would have been ok if Scarlet/Violet were made more like BD/SP, more old school but with updated graphics. Oh well. Still worth it to get a Sprigatito!!

    Maybe they will have it evolve into a saber-tooth cat like they should have done with Litten.

    It will be interesting to see how much south american influence are in these games, also I bet you that Fuecoco may be inspired by the myth of Coco (folklore) which is a mythical ghost-monster, equivalent to the bogeyman, apparently the monster is pictured as a humanoid alligator, I also theorize that as it evolves it will lose it limbs other than maybe a pair of wings perhaps to reference the feathered serpent. perhaps as a Fire and Ghost type.

    A new Trailer came out. It's interesting that they are going with a past/future theme with this game.

    I'm really liking Koraidon.

    So many Lechonk memes XD

    I'm feeling a sense of familiarity with this new gen, but that is probably because Spanish is my main language. One of my friends and I decided that he will buy Scarlet and I will buy Violet, so that takes care of the region exclusives on the first few days.

    Also, a lot of people are picking up on the new professors having names not based on trees/flora, but rather on the meaning of the games itself, so that may be an indication of the new direction the company is trying to go to.

    There is a lot of interesting things coming up each day, so this will be promising to watch.

    Thank you everyone... for being so kind and for bringing out the best in me! You are definitely awesome! ^_^

    Some of the new Pokemon actually look quite interesting. I'm going to put these ones in good use. My starter will be a hard pick.

    On the other hand, unlike I planned, I still don't have Sword.

    According to the leakers, (Spoiler:) Sprigatito evolves into another bipedal monstrosity ; _ ;

    I hope it's not true!!

    So far, based on everything that's been released, this gen looks interesting. I already have Scarlett pre-ordered.

    I'm just hoping that this doesn't become another "Gotta catch some of 'em" situation. The woefully limited Pokédex dampened my enthusiasm for Sword and Shield quite a bit.

    That and the DLC. Pokémon doesn't need DLC, and the ninth generation needs to fix that mistake. I will die on this hill.

    Depending on your point of view, one could argue that the third version of each gen could be considered that gen's DLC.

    Unfortunately there's a good reason why the 'Gotta catch 'em all' moniker hasn't been used in many years...
