Welcome to the Galar region! Our first look at gen 8 is here seems great britain is gonna be our focus.

Coming late 2019, it seems gyms are returning once more.

Got a good look at our 3 starters, no word on legends though.

You guys know the drill already by now, so lets discuss!

As I said in the general thread, I love all three starters and will need to see evolutions before I pick one. Scorbunny is clearly based on a footballer. I think Grookey may be a scholar. No idea what Sobble’s theme could be yet.

Region looks fine. I do really like having a colder region again. Dressing up in cold weather clothes will be more fun than summery ones.

... Goddammit, Sword vs. Shield? That's amazing.

That said, this will have to be the most one-sided generation out there. Shield exclusives will be coveted.

Cross-post quoting myself from the main thread:

One thing I noticed was the symbol on the male trainer's jersey when he enters the stadium is the exact same as the symbol located on the Japanese logos, about where the Z-crystal/Mega evolution symbol were in the logos for Gen 7/6.

I wonder what that represents...

Also, the Galar region is just a north/South flipped England. You starting in Scotland and the Pokemon League in London.

So I'll make a resolution, that I'll never make another one, just enjoy this ride on my trip around the sun, until its done.

I don't think we've had a long/tall region before, have we? Might be linear, but it'll be fun to just keep going up up up.

I wonder if there's a central theme to the starters. Scorbunny could easily be an athlete, what with the nose tape and all. We know Grookey is curious and Sobble is shy.

Sobble

Sobbing bubble(s).

That's just sad.

[up][up][up][up] Some of the routes seem to be large. The large grassy area with lakes to the north of the mountains north of the starting area comes to mind first.

I wonder if Galar is a play on galant.

[up][up]Nothing wrong with shield. The fighter is useful, but the paladin has their place, too.

I wonder if there are two legendaries or one legendary with two different forms. Now granted DPPt, BW, and B2W2 all had double dragons but in the latter's case it was the same dragon, just different forms of it. I'm wondering if we'll get two different wolves or the same wolf but with different forms depending on the version.

Or they could do what Gen V did and make two paired sequels. Pokemon Sword 2 and Shield 2.

I'm actually more drawn to Shield for some reason lol. But it'll depend on the exclusives.

Got a good look at our 3 starters, no word on legends though.

I mean, it's a fair bet that one is going to be blue(-ish) and at least sort of sword-themed, and the other likewise red and shield-ish
