    There's precedent for two version spinoffs. The did it a couple of times with Pokemon Mystery Dungeon.

    That is true, yeah. I still can not see it being a spin-off as there wouldn't be as much secrecy behind something like that, in my opinion. With every insider under the sun standing by this being a Yellow remake I really think it's a legit mainline title.

    i just have a hard time seeing eevee and pikachu as counterparts, unless they take the contest pikachu concept and spin it into other types or something. like, pikachu can evolve or harness other types, but still has to balance electric typing, while eevee and its evolutions are jacks of all trades but at the cost of only having one type. kind of like the truth vs ideals thing with black and white.

    wonder if the recent gorochu, uh, idea, coming out is a coincidence, with these leaks.

    I don't really like the names for the new games (assuming they're real) but I might get the Eevee version.

    Wondering with the focus on Pikachu and Eevee, as well as all this Gorochu talk.

    I wonder if we're going to get a Raichu Mega and some new Eeveelutions.

    EDIT: From one of the main leakers I was unaware of.

    Y'know, I wouldn't be surprised if Gorochu showed up... as well as the never-before-seen scrapped Gen 1 Pokémon that were revealed today.

    It's at least an odd coincidence that all of this scrapped Gen 1 info is popping up all of a sudden.

    god damn, i'm having flashbacks to how much beta shit i read about on bulbapedia as a kid. it's so fascinating. i still love rhydon just because of its novelty as the first pokemon ever designed.

    Yeah, it's so cool to see stuff from so early on in development; it feels really rare to see scrapped Pokémon too, I don't think that happens often.

    The Secrets of Pokémon Anime this is a really fun read about the intent/ideas for the pokemon anime. i come back to it every few months, it's really intriguing.

    Might be a bit uninteresing, but attempted a bit of translating with the scrapped Pokémon/etc.

    I got the feeling the shark evolved *pun sorta intended* into Sharpedo and The deer into one or all of the Swords of Justice.

    and my butt would hurt the mightiest to the point I might kill someone. hunt them down and stab with a Pikachu!

    not to mention the GIANT push for eevee as a mascot in japan. it's everywhere there now!
    you know, does this mean that baby pokemon aren't a factor in the standard stages of evolution now? or is gorochu a mega-form?
    I swear if we get those fake Pokegods as real pokemon, we better get Missigno as an actual pokemon!!!! Seriously, I can accept a Mega-porygon-Z as a stand-in! maybe version exclusive so the other is the glitches are fixed?

    Funny thing about "Jaagu" (actually "Jaggu" as written) is that it's basically just a transliteration of "shark". "Sha" and "ja" in Japanese are separated (in katakana/hiragana) by two small lines to the upper right of the character, as are "ku" and "gu".

    You know what, I'd be really down for a gen 1 remake if it means all the pokemon that never made the cut originally get reintroduced in the gen 1 dex.

    That would make things a lot more interesting.

    Possible ingame image, it's been popping up from a supposed leaked upcoming switch trailer.

    Has you can see, there's an Eevee on the shoulder, the face looks stylistically different from past games, and there's more wildlife naturally in the world.

    Could be fake.
