Corviknight is 7'03" tall, which is the same height as Dragonite. :o

You definitely would gooseberry fool yourself if you saw a 7 foot bird swooping down towards you.

I'm betting hard cash that the legendaries fuse somehow, perhaps with a third one, to form one knight Pokémon. Kinda of a Kyurem/Omegamon situation.

Leon sees that Ash has a Rotom-dex, so gives Ash a Rotom-phone that his Rotom migrates to. Unfortunately, there'll probably be about ten episodes once the league finishes [I don't see the league being more than eight episodes] where something needs to happen, and I really doubt Rainbow Rocket is happening. I expect the Team Skull stuff to be wrapped up with the league itself, with maybe one other episode after, so all I'm really left with is some sort of end-of-school parade and goodbyes, which can probably be done in one or two episodes anyway.


sounds about right

And yet it's a chuffing taxi. :roll:

I presume everyone's noticed that your rival looks dogshite again?

To be honest, I have no idea how they still get away with this two version stuff in 2019.

If Ubisoft tried this today there’d be uproar.

I don’t quite know how ether, I guess it’s not complained about more often as there has always been 2 Pokémon games (except for the 3rd game) so people just come to accept it.

To be honest, it's much more palatable these days. The GTS means you can get most non-legendary exclusives almost instantly if you put your version's up. With the Ultra Beasts they even included two of each so you could trade for the one missing in your game.

For the legendaries, they now regularly have WiFi events too, and these cycle round over time so you can eventually get all you need.

I don't think it's that bad to be honest. At least they don't put legendaries in as DLC or pay-to-win. The temptation must always be there though as they make a decent of money out of it...

Spoilered for new Legendaries

The version I buy is always based on which Legendary I like better, so Sword it is for me.

I think for me it's because they know people are double dipping and it's boosting their sales. Hence why they're releasing a double pack. I guess that's up to the individual but I do feel they're ripping people off.

Like I say, I can only imagine the reaction if Ubisoft did that with a game today.

I always shied away from Pokémon titles until trying out Let's Go, which I hugely enjoyed (and need to return to). I like the look of this new title and am tempted to give it a go. I just hope it's as welcoming to newer players as Let's Go was.

I'm getting Shield while my girlfriend is getting Sword, so for us the double pack is just a nice bonus when we're already both getting the game.

Judging by the last couple of mainline games (Sun/Moon, Ultra Sun/Moon) I would of thought so. Personally I felt they were a little too hand holdy but that's coming from someone so used to playing pokemon that I could complete gen 1 games with my eyes closed, hands tied behind my back and drunk...

All I know is it will be hugely enjoyable and accessible to all! :toot:

I rewatching the trailer again just for that song, and... the whistle the trainer does sounds very similar to the same whistle heard in Go Vacation.
