    I guess it's Pokémon week? That's what YouTubers are saying but frankly it doesn't seem like it. I haven't seen any reveals. Will be pretty annoyed if something doesn't come out about Diamond and Pearl because it seems like they're taking eternity on them and I would like a pass at Sinnoh that's not painfully slow.

    That's because its more so the week of Pokemon Day which is on the 27th.

    The Pokemon Twitter has been doing a countdown since the 8th day before it with the gen starters.

    On Pokemon Day there will be a virtual live concert called P25. It will be hosted by Post Malone and will feature the first batch of music the Pokemon Company has partnered with various singers to perform live.

    There will be also news and information about this years Pokemon releases and what to expect.

    As for gen 4 remakes, nothing has confirmed that will be the case, it once again is just fan speculation. Detective Pikachu 2 is more likely but who knows what will be shown. Definitely not gen 9, that's one year too soon from the usual 3 year intervals.

    And reminder that it will not be the concert, that's the day after.

    Btw, first P25 Album single dropped. This is Post Malone's track of "Only Wanna Be With You", a cover of the 1995 track by Hootie & the Blowfish with elements of Pokémon soundtracks mixed in, specifically the Ecruteak City theme.

    Reminds me of the Ash/Misty love-esque songs from the 90s

    I didn't know what to expect from this Post Malone person because I never really listened to them but that actually suited Pokémon. Pretty cool. The Ecruteak City theme helped.

    Hope they share something tomorrow that's not just a spin-off. Even a Let's Go would be fine. S/S is old news by now and was never particularly good.

    Agreed, definitely gonna be something though that'll have fans both content and not content for sure.

    Hopeful that this P25 album ends up being filled with fitting music and not just mediocre though.

    However out of recently released Pokemon music, Acacia by Bump of Chicken still is the better one.



    That's how you sum up 25 years!

    Thing about Pokémon presentations is that there’s a chance that they’ll devote an entire livestream for mobile games.

    Pokemon Unite is coming up pretty soon. More Sync Pairs are coming to Pokemon Masters and there's always updates with Pokemon GO (possibly gen 7 soon).

    Have to see, but entirely possible.

    Yeah, it's kinda gonna lead up to potential disappointment. But still, it might lead up to something actually interesting, who knows?

    The last pokemon presents just really gave people a rather bad taste in their mouths... well at least in the end anyways.

    Yup, we still got about a year before even a announcement of a new gen is a possibility.

    As long as both the National Dex and Megas are back in the next games I don’t care.

    My only bet is a Pokemon Unite open Beta in the summer. I know I won't be able to pet wooloo....

    I honestly think the only way we're getting all pokemon in a single game is via Battle Simulator like Pokemon Stadium or Battle Revolution and it'll be nothing but battles. Unless SwSh gets the remaining pokemon put in with a third DLC pack (which I personally find unlikely) then it's just going to be how things are now. I know it's annoying but it was kind of inevitable. I'm just glad they didn't do it with Alola like they initially intended to.

    Mixed feelings on Mega forms tho. I can see them doing a "this year, Gmax, next year Mega pokemon" sort of thing, or maybe just limiting them to Let's Go. I'd love to see Mega Beedrill fight Gmax butterfree one day.

    Baseless idea, but I think if Mega pokemon and Gmax are ever in the same game it'll limit you to one or the other during a single battle.

    Been thinking about the Gen 4 remake. They need to go all out to the point where it’s more like FF7 remake where the world is bigger and more broad or do something similar to the world design of let’s go where it is a 1:1 remake of the map but just in 3D.

    Don't think they'd spend that much on development for a remake, they very well could just do a 1:1 remake with cut features and still cash in.

    If that's the case then I am hoping whatever they make from a possible remake could go towards bettering gen 9.

    I love gen 8, but, its not at the level it could be.
