  1. I've been thinking that the mascots could be "king in the mountain" types where they helped found the region and later went to sleep until Galar needs them again. King Arthur is a well known example of this archetype, so it would fit. And hey, Black and White had legendaries based on the Three Musketeers (in a region based on New York...), so taking from Arthurian legend wouldn't be too strange.
  2. If we are going all-in on the British stuff, hopefully we get some tea and scones as the regional specialty status healing item. Here's more naming trivia: Grookey's Japanese name derives from "nori" which means "excitement/rhythm", which supports my previous theory of it being rhythm themed. Its Chinese names mean "hit sound monkey". Scorbunny's names are all variations of "flame" and rabbit related things, nothing new here. Its Chinese names mean "flame bunny". Sobble's names all relate to crying in some way... except its German name, which calls it a sissy instead. Its Chinese names mean "tearful eye lizard".
  3. Something I've noticed is that Grookey's French name is Ouistempo (ouistiti + tempo), so maybe part of Grookey's name comes from "groove". With that in mind, could Grookey's evolutionary line be rhythm themed, with Grookey itself making music by tapping its stick? Hopefully it will evolve into a bongo-playing gorilla. Also Sobble's French name is Larméléon and its German name is Memmeon, which combined with its invisibility probably means it's a chameleon.
  4. Gen VIII is finally here! Use this thread to discuss anything you want about the new games. You can find the official site here. But first, what do we know about them? Our three starters are Grookey (Grass), Scorbunny (Fire), and Sobble (Water). Takes place in the Galar region, which seems to be based on Great Britain? As usual, you have to go through Gyms and aim to become the Champion.
  5. I was only expecting 30 seconds of new content, so this is nice. People are already complaining that Scorbunny might evolve into a Fire/Fighting type. I'm leaning towards Sobble myself. Relevant
  6. After researching a bit, I found that there were only four Pokémon Directs before now: The first had a series retrospective and announced X and Y, revealing the starters, mascots, and some gameplay (probably because they were the first 3D games). The second announced Pokémon Bank and the Mega Evolutions for the Kanto starters (sans Mega Charizard X, who was revealed in Pokémon Origins). The third had another series retrospective and announced Sun and Moon (without gameplay). The fourth announced Pokken Tournament DX, Gold and Silver being released on the Virtual Console, and USUM (with some gameplay). So if we're lucky, we'll get some gameplay and hopefully the starters/mascots in addition to the obligatory retrospective. EDIT: I also noticed that we first got significant SuMo information on May 10th 2016, and May 10th 2019 is the day Detective Pikachu releases. Coincidence? Well, probably.
  7. Ah, finally. I'm ready for Gen VIII! Hopefully these games will be the "games we've been long awaiting" like Game Freak says they will be (what with Let's Go! being the "introductory game" for the Switch and all). Of course, Sun and Moon were announced on February 26, 2016, but I don't think we got any gameplay until May 10th (when we got the starters and mascots). I hope they space out reveals more evenly this time.
  8. I can see where you're coming from. If my knowledge of the Tellius timeline is correct, the Serenes Massacre occurred 155 years after Serenes Forest was founded. This website was founded 14 years ago in 2005, so at least we still have 141 years before the Serenes Massacre happens in real life.
  9. You know, I always wondered why this community was named after a nation that had nearly all of its people slaughtered... It kind of seems like bad luck to me.
  10. I wanted Duma, but I wouldn't mind a second Azura and I didn't have the other two so I theoretically wouldn't have minded getting them. Naturally, I got a +DEF -ATK Lyn. I suppose I used up all my luck getting KOS-MOS in Xenoblade 2?
  11. Ah, this is the time leading up to a new game announcement when rumors start popping up like crazy. I don't easily believe any of them, but I wouldn't be surprised if the games were called that, and we should be getting an announcement soon either way. That being said, I think Infrared and Ultraviolet would be pretty cool names.
  12. R.O.B. is the only playable character who also exists in reality, so the playable R.O.B.'s spirit could probably possess another R.O.B. from the real world even if his original body is captured by Galeem.
  13. The artbook is out now in Japan, so here's a collection of images I found. The party camping in Tantal: Despite being a 4, Roc has a feminine figure: Official height chart: Mythra's cooking ("censored" and uncensored): Full art of Beta Pyra (as seen in the special artwork): And Coffee with Milk unfortunately doesn't have "proper" full art, but we do have mostly finalized concept art: Also, KOS-MOS is getting a figure in the same vein as Pyra and Mythra. While KOS-MOS isn't a stranger to getting figures, this one is based on her Xenoblade 2 design.
  14. Over the course of playing I've gathered multiple copies of a few five stars and I'm wondering what I should do with them (merge, save for skill inheritance, etc.). With the merge update being out now I thought this was a good a time as any to ask. I have... Three Fjorms (two neutral) (+ATK -DEF) Two Brave Lucinas (neutral) (+ATK -DEF) Two Azuras (+DEF -RES) (+RES -HP) Two Summer Cordelias (+ATK -HP) (+SPD -DEF) Two Dorcases (+DEF -HP) (+HP -RES) Two Lokis (+RES -DEF) (+DEF -SPD)
  15. It took about two days for me to get my code, so if you collected the coins just now you'll need to wait a few days or so.
  16. If you bought the game physically, you need to register it with your Nintendo account (press + on the home menu, go to My Nintendo Rewards Program and choose "Earn Points"). If you bought the game digitally, it will register automatically. The last day to do this is January 31. Some time later (two days for me) you will be emailed a code which you need to put into the eShop. Piranha Plant should be downloaded automatically afterwards, and the last day to put in the code is June 30.
  17. Version 2.0.0 is out now, and with it Piranha Plant is now playable! In addition, the Spirit Board now supports multiplayer with up to four players, and the Let's Go! and Mario Party spirits now appear in the shop. They also listed the adjustments made to each fighter for the first time.
  18. I've been thinking all day about who I should give my last vote to, and I still haven't decided so now I'm willing to take suggestions. Hopefully I won't be swarmed by too many responses. The characters I've voted for already are Idunn, Lilith (because she deserves to be relevant), Eliwood, Julia (because she should have an alt), Micaiah, and Stefan.
  19. Nah. Not only does Zelda have more characters than every series aside from Mario and Pokémon (and Fire Emblem if you count echoes), it also has more content than the majority of series in basically every area. In Ultimate Zelda has... Nine stages (only Mario has more, and is one of four series to get a new stage) Eight items (only Mario has more) Four Assist Trophies (only Mario has more) Four Mii costumes (and three individual hats) Eight new remixes 92 spirits (more than any series aside from Mario and Pokémon) And a boss (if we don't treat Giga Bowser as a Mario boss, Kirby and Castlevania are the other series with playable characters to have bosses) Zelda consistently has more content than every series aside from Mario and sometimes Pokémon, so Sakurai probably isn't "biased" against it. The probable reason for there not being a new Zelda character since Brawl is that there aren't any big series mainstays aside from Link/Zelda/Ganon. Impa is the closest besides them, but her appearance and abilities aren't consistent across games.
  20. It's good that the artbook is doing better than expected. I don't plan on getting it unless it's released in English (which hopefully this popularity will make more likely), but I am interested to see what new artwork and information is in it. Just to fill up some space I'll mention a somewhat spoilery headcanon I have about the Aegises.
  21. I wish this was announced a day or so before it started so I would have more time to decide who to vote for, but oh well. I suppose I'll vote for Idunn first and then solidify the rest of my votes later?
  22. Based on their attitude towards cross play, I think Sony is the only video game company in the world that wouldn't want one of their characters in Smash. Even Microsoft wants the good publicity that a Smash character would bring.
  23. I don't want them all to be third party, but I could live with it. Mostly it depends on how much the characters in question "deserve" to be included in a Nintendo crossover, as there are still Nintendo characters who I feel should be included.
