So, Fire Buneary, Blue Scraggy, and Pansage Libre are the new starters?

Scorbunny looks the best out of the three so far.  Loving the architectural design in the world, too.

Scorbunny clearly has the most personality coming from him for this trailer and got the most defining details going for him what with the little Rocky nosepatch.  But we know how Sun and Moon turned out with Litten starting strong then crashing burning throughout the fanbase once they got to Incineroar, so hoping this fire starter doesn't also completely 180 its starter's theme.  Sobble being a tadpole chameleon frog hybrid is neat conceptually, but not very neat looking in design here.  Poor Grooky is just boring all around, hope their later forms turn that around.

Galar looks real cool, guessing we're starting from the south going north.  Wonder if it being U.K.-based we'll be heading west for some time in Poke-Wales or even sailing further on to Poke-Ireland?  Would be interesting as some alternative Battle Frontier post-game.

Also, those poor kids, they swapped out the basic bags for straight-up luggage to lug around now.

I don't get it.  But you have made me realize Scorbunny is candy corn colored, this Pokémon's going to be popular around Halloween this year.

New info on Sword / Shield in a few minutes.

~New Sheep Pokemon, Wooloo.  New flower Pokemon, Gossiifleur that can evolve into Eldegoss.  New armored shell Pokemon Drednaw.  New dark bird that can also be a ride Pokemon via flight, Corviknight.

~Gyms return and each Gym Leader has access to a Dynamax mon.  Milo is one of these Gym Leaders and has a Giga Eldegoss.

~New Legedaries are named Zacian and Zamazenta.

~Release date November 15, 2019.

Zacian & Zamazenta are not bad design for legendaries.
But they're not that great either.
Give Kula a big hug!

Heh.  I guess if Dark Souls couldn't make it into Smash, they opted to make it into Pokémon.  Alrighty then.

I'd presume the Dynamax transformation will require its own held item like Megas and Z-Moves, because while the form might block out Z-moves with its own unique moveset imposed upon it, currently there's nothing saying you can't pull out a Dynamaxed Mega Rayquaza.  And I'm inclined to believe that's a tad bit ridiculous.

I hope this Wooloo sheep evolves into something still remaining a sheep.  I love Ampharos, but turning a statically charged wooly sheep into a sheered....lighthouse sheep?  It is weird in hindsight.

Legendaries aren't doing it for me right away, disregarding how one of them is just straight-up Sif, to the point Bandai Namco is memeing about it online.  I liked last gen's better but lets give them some time, see what they do.  Gen 7, at least original Sun and Moon, did a better job implementing their legendaries into the story than most other gens, so hope they can keep on par or even one-up Alola.

Bah, says you guys.  I'm here to go full Rita Repulsa and demand the game makes my monsters grow.

Kinda odd that Raichu and Gyarados grow to equal heights though, now that I think of it.  Does that mean you can get a Roselia to match a Wailord in size?

All dynamax Pokémon shown in the trailer are fully evolved, so I'm pretty sure Pikachu won't have access to that mechanic.
