I thought Eevee was sitting on the head? It’s a little hard to tell, that photo was blurry.

It is a shit image and probably not indicative of final product. But it looks like a natural progression from the animated windows of pikachus face from yellow. I just wish they'd hurry up and reveal it already.

Interesting post from Arcadegirl64,

There's not much else for me to say about the "Let's Go" games.

Unfortunately, most of the accurate information is already floating out there on the internet. It's just a question of whether you're willing to accept some of that information.
So, who wants to guess which of the truly awful rumours is actually 100% accurate?

I'm going to guess the "only the original 151 pokemon appear" one is up there.

Also;

E3 won't be the place where this game is announced/revealed.

This game will have an accessory that is sold separately. A 35-40 minute E3 digital event isn't the right place to announce a Go-related accessory.

Only the original 151 Pokemon would be awesome imo. Maybe include Gen 2 but that's it.

Significant Go influence or non-optional interaction will turn me off pretty hard. I don't think they would be stupid enough to do the second, but who knows, there is a ton of Go focused rumors floating around.

I hate that you can’t weaken Pokémon first before capturing them in Go, the most you can do is feed them berries.

And todays rumours:

>it is a sequel to Yellow
>protagonists are professor blue oak's children
>the rival is red's son on a spiritual journey on behalf of his father
>the starter is depending on which version you chose
>pikachu and eevee get a new evolution
that is all for now...



>MC dude has an Eevee tail looking hair cut.
>MC female has 2 long side sessions of hair, looks pointy like Pikachu's ears.
>Rival dude has a mix of both Eevee and Pikachu shit going on.
>MCs both have a Pokeball made to look like a G on them to connect to Lets GO and Pokemon GO.

So Blue is a professor now?

Also, I’m just gonna call them Ash and Gary.

In Pokémon Yellow, that was their suggested names anyway.

I really like the idea of Blue being the new Professor.


Guess the Direct will have to be next week now if that 'by the end of the month' holds true.

I know what Pikachu’s new evolution is gonna be. I bet it’s the one mentioned that was scrapped from the original game, where he has horns. Gorochu.

I don't buy that there will be another form. That would give Pikachu a 4-stage evolutionary line. No other Pokemon has that. The scrapped (ugly) form existed before Pichu was introduced.


There is another rumor going around that the starters will be the standard 3 and depending on your version you also are able to be given either a Pikachu or an Eevee.

Pichu is a "pre-evolution" so it doesn’t count.

When you hatch an egg you get a Pichu; it is the first form of the evolutionary line, it absolutely counts. It just happens to have been added afterward like multiple others.

And if the rumor that this game only contains G1 Pokémon is true, then Pichu doesn’t exist anyway.

I also don't believe that one.

Even if they only include the original Kanto base pokemon, I think they will include all full evolutionary lines.

I've always called them Ash and Gary except the time I imported Gold from the US and called my guy Satoshi because I had been reading and following playthroughs of the Japanese version of the game and thought I'd be cool to call my guy the same.

As for Gary/Blue being Prof. it makes sense considering the Anime.

At the end of the Johto arc Gary revealed he wanted to become a Pokemon Researcher rather than just a trainer.

The last time we saw him in the Anime was way back in the Diamond and Pearl series where he was a Pokemon Researcher assisting Prof. Rowan. He specialised in Fossil and Legendary Pokemon.

Right now there are so many rumours coming about that I can't believe any of them anymore, it feels like the hype of a reveal is starting to make people go crazy. Until we see an official reveal I just enjoy reading the stuff because some of it is pretty creative. Especially the art work that has come out like some of the fakemon, and the new trainer rival drawings have lots of little details in the designs that if they are fake there was some pretty talented designer behind them.

Based on the rumour being the Rival is Red's son looking at the design I could definitely believe it if true, Left is the GEN VII art for Red from Sun and Moon Right is his supposed Son.
