    Sun and Moon were the last Pokemon games I played, I liked Lillie and Lunala's a favorite of mine, so it's a winner to me.

    FYI. Today's the last day to sign up for the newsletter to get Zarude and Shiny Celebi next month.

    And here's hoping all who already signed up dont get issues next month.

    What was the Pokémon last time that caused a debacle and people didn’t get? I forget, only recalling I never got mine despite being signed up for years.

    UPDATES:





    Kleavor-an evolution to Scyther it is Bug/Rock type

    [​IMG]

    There are Noble Pokémon, which are strong and powerful boss fights. Sometimes they will get Frenzied and difficult to fight
    You will receive the Celestica Flute which will allow you to summon special Ride Pokémon. Wyrdeer will let you run, Basculegion lets you swim on water and Braviary lets you fly over the areas.
    In Jubilife Village, there's a customisation, a photography studio, a general store, and the pastures wherre you can leave Pokémon that have been caught.

    When I first saw the both half, I had a feeling it was connected to Scyther but dismissed it. Then I read it was.

    I'm curious to know how many more Pokemon will be getting things like this.

    kinda curious how any of these Legends creatures will factor into later generations.

    This new game is set BEFORE any previous releases so why aren't they around anymore???

    "Extinction" or something like that really shouldn't matter since for eight generations we've been able to resurrect Fossils...

    Well that possibly could be the answer right there. Where at the Museum or wherever you get your Fossil Pokemon, there could be a researcher NPC who if spoken to will activate a machine that can turn your Pokemon into a lost form (so Growlithe to Hisuian Growlithe, Stantler getting the chance to evolve into Wyrdeer).

    Or these will be rare encounters, NPC trades or just like other regional Pokemon you can trade them into the game if their prevo or lines are in the dex.

    Sounds like Totem Pokemon.

    Interesting to see Scyther getting a new evolution. Pretty cool looking design. Although, like others, I wonder how they'll explain these evolutions aren't around in the games that take place after this era anymore...

    So after a day of going through various updates, somethings I have found.

    -Kleavor learns a new move called Rock Axe, it has not other info about it.
    -Wyrdeer and Basculegion are also Noble Pokemon that are looked after the Wardens. Each Warden has a bracelet showing which Pokemon they look after. Mai for Wyrdeer, Iscan for Basculegion and Lian for Kleavor. Arezu's wristband does not have a chance to show us hers, however on the site and in shown dialgoue she looks after a certain "Lady" Pokemon.
    -You call Pokemon to ride by using the Celestic Flute.
    -To defeat Frenzied Noble Pokemon, you first must create specific Balm out of the food they like. You then must throw the Balm at them to calm them, you will get openings to battle them with your Pokemon, battle successfully and you can knock them out for a bit to have a chance to throw more balms.
    -You will get pretty much a straight up smart phone with an Arceus style phone case called the Arc Phone. Its pretty much the Shiekah Slate minus the powers. From the site and ingame dialogue, it is not manmade, a mysterious device and has a strange power and that it happens to resemble a mythical Pokemon. An image shows it lying in the field glowing before acquiring it. So it sounds like Arceus hooks us up with a phone plan for us to be heroes. Think of it as an interactive Arceus Plate.
    -The shopkeep who sells crafting materials for potions and stuff looks like a younger version of Team Galactic's Charon, so possible relative.
    -The tailor looks like a female Darach from the Battle Frontier (reminder its not in either games).
    -Pokemon Pastures replace the boxes and Pokemon placed here are visible within the Pasture as you pass by. Something I really like.
    -The red-eyed Pokemon are called Alpha Pokemon, they are bigger and stronger then their usual counterparts. Powerful allies if you can capture them, if you defeat them however you can get lots of good items.
    -There is an item called the Substitute Charm, there's 5 different ones and it will disappear instead of regulars items when you faint. So you can lose items in this game upon fainting.
    -The player character actually makes noises if they get injured or perform certain actions.
    -Mai's Kimono set shows regular Stantler, so to my understanding Wyrdeer does indeed evolve from normal Stantler. Unknown for the others but likely.

    Sweet!:D 

    I always hate having to go back and forth between my team members and HM slaves in my playthroughs of the games. Same with having to constantly changing the move sets of some members of my teams just to accommodate the HM moves that aren’t Fly and Surf.
