It's that time of year again, the Pokémon rumours are running wild and the latest suggests that the new game will feature 4 or 5 regions plus 1 all new region based on China.

The Pokémon Twitter feed has started posting "tourism" videos, the first one was a "Visit Hoenn" type video showing off various locations in the region attractive to tourists.

Here's a link to all the info this guy has posted so far, https://archive.nyafuu.org/vp/search...kwddac/page/1/

it's always fun to read this stuff and cry when none of it turns out to be true lol. He did predict the Hoenn video though so who knows.

If the game is anything other than a "Breath of the Wild" style open world, I’ll be disappointed.

I'd die and go to heaven if you can visit multiple regions in one game. I've got very little hope that something like this will happen, but you never know. My expectations are low after SM/USUM.

Easy to read list of what the "leaker" posted
  • -The games will be announced on February 26th or 27th. He believes that the 26th the safest.
  • -Will release on November 15, 2019.
  • -They will be revolutionary games, and will be very reminiscent of the first concept art of CapsuMon, before the release of Red and Green.
  • -The 3D models are the same as in XY and onwards, but they have improved animations and a new system that allows Pokémon to relate to the environment in a natural way. Thanks to this, almost all imaginable Pokémon that can be mounted as transport (like in Let’s Go) will be available for this.
  • -There are more than 100 NEW Pokémon.
  • -There will be a Dragon-type Eeveelution.
  • -The map is the biggest seen in a modern video game.
  • -The Pokémon level-up much slower due to a new exp system (probably due to the size of the map).
  • -The dungeons are extensive and take a long time to explore compared to previous games, and you can build tents in them (that reminded me of the bonfires integrated into DQXI dungeons).
  • -Free camera finally.
  • -New catching mechanics that combines elements of the classic titles and Let’s Go.
  • -Still keeps the turn based system, but the battles are "more realistic”.
  • -There are difficulty options.
  • -Along with your team of 6, you can use any Pokémon on the PC to do certain things in the environment (like HMs/their replacement).
  • -Old regions will appear (those that were based in Japan) but more extensive than ever. Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, and new regions to fill in the blanks.
  • -The map is in fact based in Japan, so there are regions that fill the "gaps" left by the other 4. But apart from Japan there are more regions, one of them is based in China and plays an important role in the history. It emphasizes how impressive the map is.
  • -They have been taking into account the competitive side of Pokémon.
  • -It may take some time to evolve the Pokémon, so that you experience many adventures with each of its stages. This is due to the new scaled system of experience and is one of the bases of the “revolutionary gameplay". When a Pokémon evolves images appear as a summary of the best moments lived with this phase of your Pokémon that is evolving.
  • -It is an open-world but it has certain linear parts like the classic Pokémon games.
  • -Team Rocket appears, but in this case they will help you at some point against another major threat, which is not even considered a "villain team".
  • -You can find the Pokémon on the map interacting with the environment, but they can also surprise you by suddenly appearing in tall grass, for example.
  • -You can walk around the map with some freedom and choose the order you like more. Although there are known regions, the story is new.
  • -There will be many secrets and reactions in the Pokémon and gives as an example the result of giving a Shuckle berry juice.
  • -The anime character Shinji (Paul) appears in the games. He has not said if other anime characters appear.

Seems like a "Breath of the Wild" style open world to me.

Still just rumor and speculation at this point; I'd love it to be true but I don't think it will be.

Here are the "Visit" videos from Twitter

https://twitter.com/Pokemon/status/1099398468077056006

They have also been counting down the days with the original 150/1 Pokémon posting a fact about a different Pokémon each day. Todays was Zubat #42 in the Kanto Dex.

We will reach Mewtwo/Mew on the 11th/12th June. Exactly when E3 2019 is taking place.

Also worth mentioning a 4chan poster revealed what the starters would be and that it would be set in Egypt, totally unbelievable, except for the part where they said we should look out for the Dustox flower fields in todays video.

Guess what was in todays video, with the exact same wording the 4chan poster used lol



Maybe they have access to the videos before they go live and are just making up the rest and using the inside knowledge of social media posts as a "proof" they are in the know.

My thoughts exactly. Most of this sounds waaay too good to be true.

May as well keep the tradition going.

If the new Pokémon isn't revealed next week then I'll draw my tweets from then until the announcement.

Also Chinese Riddler is back again.

The legendary Chinese Riddler who's hinted and gotten multiple things correct for both Pokémon Sun & Moon as well as Ultra Sun & Moon is saying he's seen the Pokémon Gen 8 trailer and that's coming next week and brought him to tears. Is it finally time? Cross your fingers! ����

Well, just one more region to go in the travel series. I wonder if we will see the 8th region come the 27th

All of these region videos have been using anime scenes. How are they going to do one for Gen 8 without any anime footage to use?

Couple days ago the rumour was there was going to be a tease with Ash and the new starters.

The Sun and Moon arc is coming to an end real soon so it would be about time for the new series to be in production in some stage.

Could also see it being Detective Pikachu "Welcome to Ryme City" type thing.

Game related trademark was made on 6th Feb by Nintendo Corporation/Creature Inc/Game Freak.

It sounds more like a TCG set name to me.

If the old regions are in the game, does this imply that those Pokemon generations will also be in the game? I consider myself to be an "old school" player, so I only really care about Gens 1 and 2 (3 is not too bad, but that's where I stopped paying attention). But with this game coming to Switch I may as well engulf myself in Gen 8.
