Tomorrow is Pokemon's 20th anniversary and speculation is spreading around online surrounding Nintendo's newly requested trademarks for “PoKéMoN SUN” and “PoKéMoN MOON” in European markets. More news will likely surface tomorrow with the broadcast of Pokemon Direct, so hopefully we may get confirmation of a new generation ^_^

If these are the titles for the next games, it looks like we might be more pokemon since they aren't upgrades/improvements of the older games. (Such as Alpha Sapphire, SoulSilver...ect). They don't have that kind of name.  If we get new pokemon, I'm really hoping they put some thought into it. The newest pokemon were awful. Thrubbish that looks like a trash heap, litwick that goes from candle to lamp to candelabra, the pokemon that looks like an ice cream come and evolves into two scoops of ice cream....ect.

There was also a list of Pokemon that was also recently "leaked", so maybe there is a correlation here! Sadly, if the list is correct, you might be disappointed since one of the evolutionary lines is listed as (Thread, Sheet, Bed - They are all Ghost types as well). We might have another Pokemon meme on our hands haha

I see these being more associated with Pokemon Go than a gen 7 but I'll reserve all judgement until after the direct.

 

Speculating is pointless since we get an answer to everything tomorrow. :D

I'm really curious to see what Pokemon are introduced in this game. Gamefreak has been known to stick to "patterns" (an odd-numbered gen introducing new Pokemon and even-numbered gens introducing evos/pre-evos of the gen before it) but gen 6 sorta broke that. Maybe we'll get more brand new Pokemon lines, or maybe we'll get a smaller batch of new lines and get a bunch of evos/pre-evos for Pokemon from the gen(s) before it.

 

And those Pokemon you mentioned are kinda old, they had a lot of great designs in XY ^^ But BW had its fair share of good designs, and older gens have plenty of godawful designs so it's safe to assume the next gen will have a mix of good and bad designs. It's been confirmed that they're going to be simplifying Pokemon designs in gen 7 though so let's see how that goes.
 

There was also a list of Pokemon that was also recently "leaked", so maybe there is a correlation here!

 
Definitely take those leaked lists with a grain of salt, loads of them always pop up when new games are announced. Even if they're really well written they're usually made by some person in their basement  :p

And theres Grimer the blob, Voltorb the gatchaball, blue turtle Squirtle, etc. Every gen has bad designs and to be fair, the ice cream was made by some british dude who was the first westerner to design pokemon, the only ones i like from him is Vullaby and Mandibuzz.

I don't see how Squirtle is a bad design. It's fine to take from real life, but after a while, you just start throwing anything you can in. Ice cream cones, candles, trash piles...ect. You see something, and make it a pokemon basically. Grimer is meant to be a puddle of goo, it's actually one of the missions in Pokemon Ranger that you have to clean up all the Grimer. Voltorb is basically meant to be a ball of electricity. With those, at least they tried. With the new ones, it doesn't seem like they're trying at all anymore.

It seems like you just want to see the bad designs. As Turnip said, they always have good and bad designs on each gen. And I don't blame them, I've tried to come up with adoptables on Kaylune (they're kinda like pokémon in a way) and it's definitely not easy lol.

Exciting :D

I suppose it's because the bad designs stick in my head more than the normal/good designs do. I don't just want to see the bad, I know there are good ones, but I just can't see them in my head because they don't stick. Things that are bad stick in my head more than things that are good or normal.

Yeah, that's true. We tend to pay more attention to what's wrong and take the good things for granted :p I used to think only the old gens had good designs too

This could possibly be my favorite set, just because of the names. TBH though, I prefer having better graphics of the old pokemon than brand new pokemon because I hate having to memorize a bunch of new useless shit.

I want it to be Gen 7 but I think it'll be something more like Gen 6.5, just based on the timing.

 

I skipped OR/AS (first time I've skipped a game (well, I emulated BW2)), so I'll definitely be picking up whatever this is. :)

OH SHIT I'M HYPED UP!!!!!

 

So far we've seen cars and what looks like a hotel (the lady is right next to a suitcase in front of the building). Traveling adventures confirmed? I've seen people ask what all the hubbub with the cars is about since I mean, we've had cars since gen 1. Why are these ones so special? But I can't think of a reason why they would show concept art for something which is merely a background decoration. These cars have Pokemon sitting in them as well. Are we gonna get Pokemon road trips?? That'd be fucking awesome!!

 

Looks like they've shown off the regional bird as well. A lot of people think it's Fletchling, but Fletchling doesn't have a pointy head like that, the feet don't match, and it doesn't have chicken legs like that.

 

Here are the images if you missed the stream ^^

Im more interested in the fact that they use Maya, but yeah, that bird looks like another fire bird if the candle flame like head is anything to go by.

HYPE!!!  Also, I really wonder how they are planning on implementing the last point that was brought up (Gen 1 Pokemon from the new VC re-release of Red/Blue/Yellow being transferable to Moon/Sun) since, as far as I know, the IV system in the first Gen was significantly different from the one we currently have in place, as well as the fact that Genders, Natures, Abilities, ect. weren't available in those games.  :unsure:

I really want to know now if we're getting a car instead of the bike, or both. I can just imagine the professor screaming "THIS ISN'T THE TIME TO USE THAT" when people try and use their cars inside. Maybe they're adding a car to the safari zone, instead of having to use the bike. Which I imagine would be necessary if the size of the safari zone was increased by quite a bit.

Same way they did gave a second ability to pokemon which only had one on a previous game. Each pokemon has a set of data that controls whatever change they'll suffer when transferred to another gen (and something they specifically set up for pokemon coming from gen 1), so I don't think it'll be a problem.
