Assuming we get Sinnoh remakes and there isn't some sort of curveball (Like Sinnoh sequels instead of a remake or a new set of Let's Go games.) based on how they announced SWSH I'm expecting to see Lucas and Dawn roaming through Sinnoh followed by an introduction to the starters and a look at the logos for the game. Plus a brief overview of Sinnoh by the games' director for those who haven't played the original Diamond and Pearl.

They could maybe pull an ORAS and just show us just the boxart but that wouldn't be hype enough.

Crazy that a Pokemon with unresisted STAB moves suffered so much.

It has Dialga's stats, and it is a very strong 'mon, but, it has no actual niche, there are always better options.

A shame, next to the weather trio, the tao trio is my favourite set of box legends.

At least swap the speed and attack and you have something decent for Ubers, but yeah it just didn't have a role it could fill.

Basically "why bother using this when Kyurem-White exists?".

It's the end of the world as we know it, and I feel fine. ...not really though.
Feb 21st 2021 at 6:20:27 PM

Which, to be honest, makes sense; Black and White Kyurem are lore-wise supposed to be stronger than Zekrom and Reshiram.

Still, extra stuff wouldn't really hurt.

Reminds me of Solgaleo and Lunala versus Necrozma's formes; one is outright superior to its counterpart, and the other is outright inferion (still, an issue of abilities; Solgaleo has the worst one, while Lunala has the best).

Turns out a copy of Clear Body is a lot worse than a copy of Multiscale or Filter. Who could have ever guessed?

Feb 21st 2021 at 6:40:20 PM

The Necrozmas could had been better balanced if they had the abilities of Solgaleo and Lunala rather than that of Necrozma, tho.

But they are Necrozma, not Solgaleo or Lunala.

But I guess since Kyurem kept Reshiram and Zekrom's abilities, that makes sense.

If you look, Kyuream assimilated Zekrom/Reshiram's body. It even still has their power source in their tail.

Necrozma only takes Solgaleo/Lunala's light and makes a facsimile of it. Dusk Mane/Dawn Wings Necrozma's body even looks like it was made out of light compared to Solgaleo/Lunala.

That's Ultra Necrozma. DM and DW are literally Necrozma taking over the bodies of Solgaleo and Lunala.

If you check the weights in the Dex, Ultra Necrozma weights the same as regular Necrozma, while Dusk and Dawn Necrozma weight as much as Necrozma plus Solgaleo and Lunala. And, the joke there is, light has no mass.

It's a bit of a combination. Dusk Mane/Dawn Wings looks like Necrozma possessing Solgaleo and Lunala and partially turning them into light, though not entirely. Kind of in a weird state in-between biological matter and pure light energy, since they're glowing and charged. Ultra Necrozma is Necrozma completing the process and converting the entire mass of Solgaleo/Lunala into light energy to shape it into Necrozma's dragon body.

Or...its referencing each countdown to Saturday using its numbered gen.

Unless you're gonna say they're teasing something for Gens 8, 7, 6, and 5 from a few days ago.

Ah, darn, you're right. I scrolled back a little bit but not enough to see the other days. I saw Sinnoh Trending and figured this was the root cause, on top of some future 4th gen related merch thats going to be coming out later this year.

Look, I want there to be G En 4 remakes too, but I'm not gonna jump on every "hint"

The biggest hint we got is that supposed leak from Centro, but that can still be disproven.
