I expect the forbidden topic to make the rounds when the game actually launches, because that's when we'll have the full dex for Galar, which means people are going to complain about whatever Pokémon aren't in it.
Now don't be silly, the Deximation won't rear it's head again at launch. It'll rear it's head again when either the street date is broken or the theoretical demo is cracked, especially if the dataminers dig out the models and see something familiar about them. All of that is before launch

I'm just wondering when they'll formally introduce impidimp
It's been months now
There should be a rule that whenever a controversial topic is mentioned, whoever mentioned it should get a Boot to the Head.
Personally, I think that TPC needs to get a jump on the dataminers and take Refuge in Audacity.
They should release the Galar Dex in the last Sunday of October in a TV special that's an obvious Parody of CBS' NCAA Men's Basketball Selection Show, revealing the dex in quadrants over the course of an hour.
Heck, TPC's 3 branches would make instant "Championship Partners": Nintendo would be the Switch Lite, Gamefreak would be Town, and... I'm not sure what Creatures would headline. Maybe TV Tokyo/Medianet/ShoPro takes Creatures' spot to headline the Gen 8 Anime.
... Why would a Japanese company do a parody of a specific broadcast of American sports coverage... on Japanese television...?
And why would they use American soccer when the region is based on the UK?
Ah figures I was familiar more with XY than SM's releasing of mons.
...man I miss Coro Coro reveals.
Same. You at least knew you were going to get something at the same time each month.
Yeah, we haven't gotten any Coro Coro reveals this cycle, have we?
I think Gamefreak has just realized that in these days you really can just reveal whatever you need through Internet and not worry about some magazine.
Good on them, actually.
It should also be pointed out that there is still consistency with info dumps. While we can never predict the exact date, outside of the reveal, Worlds, and Gamescom footage, every other piece of info given to us has been during the early parts of the month, usually before Coro Coro would have leaked anyways.

Also a smart move. I like that.
Defending a company against dataminers because you want a surprise? Ah, feels like Stockholm...
I'm not sure I follow that logic, assuming you mean Stockholm Syndrome?
Video game developers, Nintendo in particular, have this tendency to try to remove consumer rights any way they can.
Nintendo penalized EU countries due to street date being broken. Consumers blamed dataminers and pirates, when what happened was Nintendo throwing a temper tantrum and believing itself to have authority to punish its consumers. The one to blame for the delay was Nintendo. Nobody forced them to do that. No "if there were no Pirates, Nintendo wouldn't punish us".
That is not healthy at all.
So... Consumers have Stockholm Syndrome because of opinions that using online sources to release news instead of a magazine is a good thing?
I still feel like I'm missing something here.
Consumers taking the side of the publishers instead of that of other consumers, pretty much.
Okay, but is that what's happening here? All anyone here has said was GF's method of releasing news is a smart/good way to do it.
Given how much trouble the leakers seem to cause sometimes, and how fake many are, I'd like them to knock it off, really.
Yeah, if you don't want leaks abound, the current system of information distribution is just better and more airtight than the older system. That doesn't really have anything to do with consumers vs producers, it just has to do with experiencing information for the first time when and how it's meant to be presented, thus getting the best surprise when learning that information.
I feel like someone drank too much twitter and put two unrelated things. This is "Nintendo isn't giving a sale, it's infringing my consumer rights" tier.
I would rather say "most" or "purest" surprise as opposed to "best" surprise given... certain events.
They did stay (well) ahead of the leakers on that one, though.
Also, what's with the idea that siding against dataminers and leakers is somehow the same as siding against the general consumer? Dataminers and leakers aren't big revolutionaries who fight against The Man, no matter how much they think they are. They're just assholes who like to ruin stories for people.
So you say. Not everyone likes information doled out at the same pace. I personally prefer more info beforehand than less. I hope there is a big data mine following a demo release because itll give me all the info I want.
