That new Pikachu & Eevee being locked behind two other games doesn't bother me, but early-buyer exclusive Meowth is pretty bad. The former rewards series fans, but what's Meowth do other than make Nintendo look greedy? They're already not bringing back all Pokemon, now existing content is being locked out for not getting the game early enough?

Kinda cruddy. Reminds me of that Mew thing with Pokemon Let's Go. Not liking their direction with this.

I mean, Meowth spew coins from the one on their head. They've always been associated with greed and corruption.

They can keep their Meowth. There is enough cats in this house, I don't need a virtual one nagging me everywhere I go.

I mean, it is kind of ironic how they're emphasizing having so many Pokemon now, spanning generations that we had to "Catch 'em All" in, culminating in this latest release...and they don't have them them all. It was kind of cool though, sort of reminds me of the original commercials.

I think they dropped "Catch Em All" a while back, didn't they?

Speaking of the old commercials, does anyone else occasionally have nightmares about the bus driver crushing all those Pokemon?

Western Pokémon fandom be like:

"Yay Kanto!"
"There are only 151 pokémon."
"Charizard!"
"Does this game have Charizard in it?"
"Is Charizard in the game?"
"Charizard <3"

"...Why's TPCi trying to court us with Charizard and Kanto Pokémon?"

Generally speaking, the crowd who wants to see Kanto in everything and the crowd that wants them to move the heck on from Kanto and focus on newer content are distinct. Both are loud, therefore you will see both positivity and backlash in virtually any decision made concerning whether or not to emphasize Kanto pokemon.

I feel like messing up that quote is akin to treason

Is it true there's only going to be
Spoiler.
400
Pokemon between these 2 games? They had that much on GBA lol. They really can't justify having two versions at this point.

FWIW the leaks I've seen have said the Pokedex has 300-some, but that was also true for Sun and Moon. The other 400 were in the game without entries.

I will say one thing about the leaks
Spoiler.
Gamefreak did good by not revealing most of the new 'mons pre-release like they did Gen 6/7. There's a lot of surprises for people to find, that's for sure.

Again, I'm a fan of the reduced Dex. I like all the clothing options too.

Agreed. This go-‘round I’m avoiding spoiler lists and actually going in blind. I’m excited.
