I'm pretty sure one of the gyms will be dragon given the design of the second large city. Could be the Champion's type. And on that note I do expect them to go back to having a proper champion. Though I can see you doing title defenses for replays.

And I hope the champion is another female like Cynthia, Iris in B2/W2 and Diantha.

That could be interesting, and have said champion being a title challenger.

I actually really like how Gen 7 pulls from a random group. It increases the variance of play and it helps give life to the world by making different people fight you for the title.

Yeah, it was an interesting system, and whilst it'd be neat if it return for Gen 8, whether it returns is another story.

On the note of randos, I like how USUM had so you could meet the dragon bloke during the story, rather than just show up out of the blue in SM.

Same with the Golfer. Ultra vs. Normal is so weird since I'd say the story is a LOT weaker, but between quality of life changes, more Pokemon obtainable (plus new ones), new features, and doing a bit more with some side character it is better in several ways. It honestly sucks that a single version doesn't take the good parts from both. Also, really curious how a LPer I follow will cover Gen 7 for these reasons since I honestly feel like both games should be shown off.

I might know the LPer if you give a name.

I think I know which LPer you might be on about, but yeah. Kahili was the same, and both games had their shortcomings in terms of characters, features, etc.

Maybe this game should be like Gold Silver and Crystal: Give us two regions to explore.

One thing I'd like to see is a place where people can acquire A-Marowak, A-Exeggutor, A-Raichu.

Cool. Wait, isn't that what Pokemon Go is for? I got an Alolan Geodude that way.

 

Pokemon Let's Go had trainers that traded regular versions of Kanto Pokemon for Alolan Versions. Maybe they can implement that.

People have speculated that this is the region that was at war with Kalos and given the England/France connection makes sense. 2 regions would be cool, but balancing for them both is pretty difficult. The level curve in Gen 2 is honestly awful.

I'm curious how those three are going to be handled too. For the other Alolan forms breeding them gets you them normally, but for those 3 it is a branch evolution, but one you can't access outside of Alola in theory.

The LPer is Chugga btw

Possibly, or they'll make it so you have to transfer them via Bank.

Yeah, I remember in USUM, you can get the regular evos via Ultra Wormholes, but I suppose in-game trades could work for those.

That's who I figured you were talking about.

Personally, I think you should be able to breed everything in game, so I think something similar to the Wormhole solution in Ultra is the bst bet/what I'd want.

Yeah, I also think a wormhole-like thing will happen as well.

Yeah, plus they'd have to redesign Kalos, it's characters and set a time frame. I mean, the Johto games take place three years after the events of the gen 1 games. Who knows how much time will pass from the gen 6 games.

 

Yeah, maybe there will be special Alolan charms that will allow for such evolutions.

 

Kinda figured it was ChuggaConroy. Thing is, He's only covered up to Black and White, not even the sequel games Black 2 and White 2. He should at least get caught up with X, Y, Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon.

Though, if there isn't an option to go to Kalos, if this region is as people speculated to have been at war with Kalos, they could throw some references to the war.

While it is true that he's going through the gens in order, Flame was merely looking ahead for when he does get to gen 7 in a few years' time and how he'll handle that LP.

I'll agree with you on the first part. As for the second, he'll have to do X/Y first. You know, state his opinions on Fairy-types, not to mention pick pokemon for his Kalos team.

 

Then he should do Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon, give his thoughts on the games too.

*slowclaps* You know I was indirectly talking about XY when I said "going through the gens in order" right?

Sorry. Now about villainous team. That's a staple. I imagine that most of the grunts would use Honedge, the admins Doublade, and the boss Aegislash. At least for Sword. Shield is a different story. What kind of Pokemon can pass for a shield?

It does help to read between the lines. As for the villain team, imo I don't think they will use the Honedge-line, sounds like a red herring bet to me. As for what I think the villain team will use, probs stuff relating to their possible industrialist agenda or something.
