9th Gen is happening this year bros. They're starting the "revisiting" in March and that means the last region they'll cover will be in October. Leaving nothing for November and that's when it'd be perfect to launch a new game the month before Christmas. They'll of course give us more info and unveil Gen 9 somewhere before that.
>>45918420Poggers no gen 4 remake
>>45918427>>45918428Sinnoh cucks on suicide watch
>>45918420Jaredposter absolute based and correct as always
>>45918427>>45918428>>45918528>>45918545Can’t fucking wait till it’s revealed to be Gen 9 and this board gets ass blasted once again
New region doesn't mean it has to be a new gen. Ever since Z version was heavily hinted to take place in a new region I've been thinking that a new region in the same gen is going to happen eventually.
>>45918427fpbp sinnohfetuses on suicide watch
>>45918713That would never happen. They could've made Alola Gen 6 but didnt.
>>45918420If we get Gen 9 that just screws the whole pattern up
>>45918749There are still patternfags?
>>45918749Nope, the DLC was basically the third versions of Sword and Shield. So a new gen or a remake can happen now.
>>45918749Patterns been fucked up my dude
>>45918420I doubt it's a new gen but yes we appear to be counting down to either Kanto or possibly Johto/Kanto if it were a GS remake. I just want more DLC honestly.
>>45918713New region typically means new Pokémon/starters which means new gen
>>45918420>9th Gen is happeningBut we didn’t even get Pokémon Snap on the switch yet, how did everyone fucking forget?
>>45918816I don't know how that'd prevent Gen 9 happening. Unless you're so fucking braindead you'd believe they wouldn't release a mainline pokemon game this year.
>>45918802Pokemon has broken too many patterns recently that we thought wouldn't ever happen, it doesn't matter what typically happens.
>>45918843Sinnoh fag cope routine:Stage 1: Denial
>>45918816>hurr they can’t release a spin off WITH a mainline game in the same year, especially an anniversary year!Being this retarded should be a ban worthy offense
>>45918906I didn't say anything about Sinnoh?
>>45918940>g-guys if they make a third version this gen th-then maybe they'll also do a r-remake? The same thing happened back in gen 4!!!We all know where you're going with this Sinnoh pleb.
Only 2 years for a gen, especially one that's been selling really well for Pokemon standards? Doubtful.
How much bullshit would it be if they did a new generation within 2 years?
What do they mean by revisiting regions? What are they doing exactly?
>>45918528why would a Sinnohfag want his favorite region ruined by the shitty lazy remakes
>>45918960This was such a good day. I’m really hoping Feb 27th is on the level of this
>>45919017Probably a montage video of that region. Or a little thing like they already did in the video that was just released.>>45919024Oh shut the fuck up, you faggots have been on your hands and knees pleading for it forever now.
>>45919038stop spending your time reading twitter and youtube comments made by brainless drones
>>45918979If I was a Sinnohfag I'd be arguing that they're coming this year, retard.
>>45919061I only spend my time on here. You have been begging for it forever. Stop trying to rewrite history Sinnohcuck. You're on the bargaining stage of grief right now so it's nice that you're moving along.
>>45918528>implying any sinnohfag wants a remakeI do not want my favourite generation to be bastardized by nu-GF, I'd rather have Gen 9 now.
>>45918754Except a third game is a new separate game where you have to start a new save file . Also, it’s called expansion pass, and not a separate name like Super Sword and Super Shield.
>>45919370Stop samefagging Sinnoh cuck.>>45919429If you think they're doing a third game after practically doing a third game already you're out of your fucking mind.
>>45919180>I only my time here>Somehow manages to evade 99% of comments saying Gamefreak will fuck up the remakes Nice try normie, go back
>>45919010The anniversary is the wild card factor here.
>>45919429They explicitly equated the DLC to their past third versions retard. That they also then bundled that new content with the region meant they released the third version physically.To the rest of you idiots thinking they're going to jump to Gen IX, look at what the rest of the franchise is up to, before deciding there's anything significant coming.
>>45919514To celebrate the 15th anniversary of Pokémon, we are going to release Gen 6!
>>4591965225th anniversaries are seen as a huge deal since at that point it's been a quarter of a century.
>>45919666Anon, they work in three year blocks. You're crying about "muh 25th" but they drag out either of the next two Gens a year extra, they can release Gen X in the 30th anniversary year instead.
>>45919699I doubt they'd stall the entire franchise just to put a game for the 30th. About the only way they could do that is remaking BW and then B2W2 a year later which is very unlikely.
>>45919699Gen X and the remake for that gen would be of X and Y.
>>45919718I didn't say stall, Let's Go 2 Johto tacked onto the end of Gen VIII/IX would facilitate that. The fact covid's been a thing makes it a greater possibility - draw out the Gen to fully maximise its earning power and allow the anime to catch up to counteract its delays last year.
A new generation every year.
>>45919793Or we get SwSh 2 to buy time.
>>45918420It will be shit, and you will buy it anyways. it is tiresome, have fun I suppose.
>>45918427Thank God.Sinnoh will be untouched by modern GF.
>>459184209th gen is gonna be the last chance for gamefreak to pull out their BoTW/MHW equivalent. If it ain't happening then, pokemon will become truly irredeemable
>>45919811I will. Have fun being completely devoid of fun and just trying to bring misery to everyone else because you yourself are a miserable sack of shit that can't stand others feeling happy.
>>45919874I'd argue that X would be a bigger deal than IX. But IX will likely be the last mainline Pokemon game on Switch.
Why are they starting with gaylar?
>>45919941mmmm I have fun in other franchises, sorry to ruin your delusionskeep being addicted only to pokemon.
>>45918427Nobody in their right mind wants a Gen 4 remake. Not after ORAS.
>>45918420I def think it will be a new generation most likely because I think they like the money they make every time a new gen is introduced. so why not do it more often as possible? the people who profit off of pokemon seem extremely greedy. who knows maybe they are saving up to get seats on a mars or lubar trip or some shit.
>>45918420I told you that retards but you’d rather pretend that GF wouldn’t rush another gen for their 25th anniversary.
>>45919808Not happening, sorry. They already released the version-exclusive DLC, no need for a version-exclusive rehash.
>>45919966For it to be a nostalgia countdown to gen 1, then in November whatever the next game ends up being will launch with KANTO fresh in peoples minds.
>>45920200Ah yes, let's tease Ghetsis and Team Flare in the Max Lair and not follow up on the dimension hopping from previous gens in any way in gen 8.
2016>Currently 2 releases into Gen 6 (XY, ORAS)>People expect Pokémon Z>Due to the 20th anniversary we get Gen 7 instead2021>Two releases into Gen 8 (SwSh, DLC)>People expect a Sinnoh remake>Because it’s an anniversary we get Gen 9 insteadI’ve been saying this for months, I’m just glad other people finally figured it out
>>45919988>why not do it more often as possible?Because even when they were writing the games in BASIC and working on releasing Game Boy games, it still took them 3 years to make a new Gen. That they've also operated on this 3 year cycle more often than not indicates it's more likely Gen IX's in '22. I mean, shit. Not as if the fanbase hasn't misconstrued an official pokémon tease before (eeveelution plushies TOTALLY meant Let's Go 2 Johto last year, remember?)I get children are scared of the big bad remakeboogyman raping their childhood, but they're also functional retards if they think Game Freak isn't going to remake their childhood to re-sell to the newbie players, like they remade everything to this point, to re-sell to newbie players.
>>45919966This. I’ve been an advocate of Gen 9 releasing this year for a long time, but the fact that they’re going backwards instead of forwards worries me a bit
>>45920256People for some reason don't count the DLC as a "release" or third version. They're all in denial.
>>45920238>DP introduced the concept of warping space/time>"hurr, swishy2 because I can't cope with remakes of muh childhood, I'm not old"
>>45920256Except Gen 6 did go for 3 years and this gen has not.. (Like all other gens have gone for at least 3 years).>inb4 Patternfag
>>45920256>three years into Generation, a fresh Generation gets relesed>just like three years before XY started, BW started Gen V>and just how Gen VIII started 3 years after Gen VII launched in 2016You're still a seething bitch they yeeted your rehash, eh?
>>45919966 we’re going back to kanto boy’s!
>>45920326Kanto would be October. The release in November would be Zero or some other thing they came up with.
>>45918528>implying I wanted perfection remade
>>45920354Stop replying, each reply just makes you look more desperate to convince people you aren't coping over there.
>>45920289>>4592029845 days, patternfags...
>>45919941Normal people have fun playing games that are actually worth their money. Just yesterday I was playing Fatal Fury Special on my Neo Geo CD as well as Harvest Moon on my GBA. Both are far more fun than anything the last 7 years of pokemon games were. You're addicted to the series and are genuinely pathetic for thinking that anyone with enough of a brain to know that pokemon is the call of duty of JRPGs now must not be able to have fun. We're probably having more fun than you are because most other games are far superior to modern pokemon in terms of how much effort is put into them and how much fun they are.
>>45920371My first reply in this thread actually. Take your meds.
>>45918713That has never been a thing. The regions are what make the generations. (as well as new set of pokemon)Are you suggesting they'd maybe do a new region with no new pokemon?
>>45918420I see y'all are coping hard thinking we're getting gen 9 so soon
>>45920408Not patternfaggotry, when it's literally how Game Freak operate son. Regardless of what else they do, the first Gen on new hardware heralds a remake. Remember, they scrapped Z because they couldn't fix a way to split it into version-exclusives like with BW2, USM and SS' expansion packs.They didn't skip the remake that Gen though.
I still feel like it is too soon for Gen 9, imo. Not saying it can't happen, but I feel like Let's Go Johto or Sinnoh remakes are more likely.Plus, with the whole 'region a month' thing, they're going in descending order. It would make more sense to go 1 -> 9 than 8 -> 1 and back to 9.Not to mention they wouldn't REVEAL Gen 9 in the same month they'd likely release it in. Unless they show it off before the countdown, but then why even do the countdown in the first place?
>>45920410Anon, you realise the vast majority of the people buying pokémon see it that way too?Or you too stupid to realise the world doesn't share your take and the very fact you're sitting crying over a kid's series proves you're more addicted to it than anyone you accuse of being, given you literally CAN'T just let the series roll on, now you don't like it any longer.
Can someone please tell me why a new game is even necessary? SwSh has only been out for a year. Holiday 2019. Holiday 2020 just ended. It sold less than half of what they wanted to sell (60 million), you really think RUSHING another game out WITHIN A YEAR is gamefreaks next move, when that's what totally fucked them with SwSh??? I don't think there will be a new game til Holiday 2022 at the earliest.
>>45920510/vp/ doesn't want to accept they aren't relevant to the series any longer. Denying Sinnoh remakes is their last big effort, guarantee you when they're announced, we're going to see a flounce equal to what happened after the dexit announcement, as that codifies Game Freak's lack of care for the obsessives.
>>45920510They always announce the games whether it's a remake or not months in advance so I have no idea if the countdown really serves any actual purpose.
>>45920520Where are you getting 60 million from when Animal Crossing didn't even sell that despite selling a ton especially due to Covid?
>>45920520Because it helps the entire franchise monetise itself, not to mention gives Nintendo free money for console sales alongside it.No cunt involved cares about manchildren too poor to continue to keep up, there's plenty of money to make off the people who will and continue to buy in.
>>45920520>60 millionNothing on the Switch has sold even half of that. https://www.nintendo.co.jp/ir/en/finance/software/index.html
>>45920550He's throwing shit at the wall to see what sticks, I doubt they've set a hard target for sales, precisely because in Gen I everyone told them they were dead due to release window, by Gen II, they said it would be a fad and apart from subtle fluctuations, over the last 5 Gens they've sold ~16m lifetime.SS has sold 19.02m in barely its first year (last sales figures to-date is 30/9/20) and with no rehash to kill its legs, like USM did for SM and in other Gens, it's on-course to potentially reach GS-level figures when its lifetime sales are totted up.
>>45920595True I noticed its September sales numbers put it between Mario Odyssey and BOTW, which both released 2 years before SwSh did.
>>45920512That's simply untrue. If I were addicted then I wouldn't have the spine the put that shit down. The majority of the fanbase is casuals and children who don't care about quality and buy it because it's pokemon. Caring about the series and being upset that it's shit =/= addiction. It's supporting it despite that fact that makes it addiction, retard.
>>45920289Like that really matters? This generation isn’t as hyper focused on showing off the new region and new Pokémon as previous ones. Galar was about the characters first and foremost. Think about it. All of the character merchandise released recently, Masters being centered around trainers, the anime not needing to revolve around Galar to be relevant. Not to mention the lackluster batch of fillermons Gen 8 was filled with. The anime already did the Sword and Shield plot. Other than adapting the DLC’s stories, maybe, what else is there to keep shilling until Fall of 2022?We’re going to move to Gen 9 this year so we get a new batch of waifus and gay boys to obsess over. Ash and Go get to see a new region without waiting for a new era of the anime to begin and the new games will be just as shitty as Sword and Shield since GameFreak is incapable of listening to their fans.
>yfw it’s another Kanto remake
>>45918749Not the first time it happened, remember Gen V?
>>45921056Red 2 and Blue 2
>>45921031It doesn’t even have to be a new region. They could make a game where you get to explore forests, mountains and islands between regions or other Wild Areas. No new Pokémon. No new officially named region. Take your pick between all 26 starters.Still no compete dex.
>>45920951And yet you're crying over the games, on a containment board dedicated to it...
God, I hope so.As long as Sinnoh ends up untainted by Galarshit I'll be happy.
>>45921095Not happening, they didn't say the National 'Dex wouldn't appear in a Generation in full, just that it wouldn't appear in any one game in full.
>mfw there won't be a mainline Pokemon game this year and all we're getting is Pokemon Snap>mfw all this arguing is for nothing
We will be getting ported old games and no sinnoh remake. Gotta sell those Home subscriptions and bank on nostalgia. Every month will release a set of merch and cards for each generationm mostly centered around the starters and shillmons for each gen. It's already begin with the TCG.
>>45921121don't forget we also have Unite to look forward to!!
>>45921056You know what? I am ok with this.
>>45921466i see you've finally made it to acceptance. welcome
>>45921529I came to the acceptance stage months ago. Big anniversary, the anime has heavy Kanto focus etc. It just made too much sense.
Gen 9 games being released this year would be an utter disaster. 2 years is just not enough time for an entire generation.
>>45920494>literally how Game Freak operateShit, bro, you work for gamefreak?
>>45921610>Gen 9 games being released this year would be an utter disaster.I don't think gen 9 will happen this year, but how would it be a disaster? They already pump out unfinished garbage and everyone eats it up.
>>45921610>>45921813They already outsource alot and didn't they move into Nintendo's office space? They could have extra outside help to make up the difference.
>>45921834They also didn't have to do the extra effort of a third version, instead just adding some new endgame content onto the existing one while changing nothing about the base game.
>>45921132SAME! I just love MOBAs! Especially those based off of my favorite franchise, Pokémon™!
>>45921121This would be hilarious. Having no main series game on the 25th anniversary would make this board fucking explode more than gen 9 or a remake ever could.
>>45921916Well, Covid didn't effect the DLC but they did say it could impact things further down. Technically Snap and Unite could cover 2021 even though people don't want that to be the case.
>>45921916Screenshot for the future.
>>45920510>Not to mention they wouldn't REVEAL Gen 9 in the same month they'd likely release it in. Unless they show it off before the countdown, but then why even do the countdown in the first place?The countdown is just an arbitrary thing so they can say they plan to celebrate all year. I expect the reveal, whatever it is, to happen on Pokémon Day.
>>45918420shut it retard
>>45922066Don't remakes usually get announced around May? They could announce Snap's release date on Pokemon Day and then just tease at a later announcement for whatever comes out around the holidays.
>>45922360While that's true, if we end up getting Gen 9 revealing it after Pokémon Day makes no sense. Also, given that this year is an anniversary, I definitely think even if we get a remake this year the reveal will happen on Pokémon Day so GF can market the game as a celebration of series history
Here's a thought. 2021 remake with music stylings by Katy Perry as the soundtrack.
>>45923028I'd rather catch AIDS.
>>45923035Dawn vs Cynthia and the song "Roar" plays during the battle and once you win the song "Firework" plays as the outro.
>>45921987that's not a mainline game dumbfuck
>>45918713>Ever since Z version was heavily hinted to take place in a new regionExcept it wasn't. It was hinted we might see the south side of Kalos similar to how we saw additional areas of Unova in B2W2 but it was never hinted to be a new region. The totem was an Alola hint not a Z hint.
>>45918960>mfw he ended up being right anyways>mfw i have no face
>>45921056>Kanto remake>Plot is a sequel of GS>Lillie cameo because why notYeah, i think its based
>>45920224>It turns out to be Kanto 2>b-but what about Johto?Literally no one cares about Johto. ;_;
>>45923532>In collaboration with the anime, we present Pokemon: Journey's the game! Follow Ash, Goh, and Chloe as they adventure around Ash and Goh's home region!
in a couple months game freak will announce gen 9. it will take place in a new region based on japan. kanto will be the post game. they'll just reuse the kanto they made for let's go.
>>45918420I wish nintendo would actually spend at least 4+ years to make a good pokemon game
>>45918420They do stuff like this every year, even when there's not a new generation.
>>45918612I honestly wouldn't mind Gen 9.
>>45921058>We could have gotten a DS-era ORASIt STILL fucking hurts bros
>>45924250Nintendo doesn't make them they just publish them.
>>45918420Gen IX will be even more rushed and barebones than SWSH if it releases this year. SWSH was what they could make with three years of dev time, gen IX would be just around two.There's no hope for this franchise, is there?
>>45920289Don't forget that SwSh is one of the most barebone generations we've ever gotten, and that the DLC was very small so 2020 was practically a gap year. I personally think there are 3 possibilities: Let's Go Johto, Sinnoh remakes, and Gen 9. I think Gen 9 is the most likely of these 3, since they claimed to have no plans of making a second Let's Go game (since it flopped, by Pokemon standards) and I honestly think DP remakes are too "obvious", plus they already shoved all the legendaries into Crown Tundra. And it doesn't matter that they left out the Gen 4 mythicals, because they wouldn't be that blatantly obvious about their plans.
>>45924312It doesn't matter how many times you repeat it kid, they take three years to make the game, because the first year is purely building the engine and designing everything for the region. They don't actually start production on the game until the second year (so that would have been middle of '20, give a middle of '19 start, like always). They haven't even a beta build yet, I'd wagert and you think they're launching a new Gen now. How fucking retarded are you to believe the big lies this place tells?
>>45924271DS era oras would never have happened because the DS lite was still on the market until the 3ds released
I enjoyed how a portion of this thread was dedicated to trying to btfo patternfags by patternfagging
>>45924360They used LGPE's engine though.
>>45924388But they didn't kid. Adding more bits to an engine and writing new code to insert on top of that isn't "the same engine" - it's a new bastardised frankenstein engine making use of 5 separate engines to make one.Unless you're going to tell me I just *missed* the Gmax ability in Let's Go Eevee?
>>45924444If they want they can just reuse the engine as it is in SwSh to save time. And editing something doesn't make an engine new. That would like saying USUM is a completely new game compared to SM.
>>45924481They'll be doing that, to make the DP remakes.They always make a new engine for the new Generations though. Which means Gen IX won't be happening this year, despite your desperate spergings for it.
>>45924481And I didn't say edited, learn to read. I said they took different chunks of 4 engines, wrote more code to tie those code stings together and created a new engine out of them.
>>45919429They’ve already said that DLC is replacing third versions going forward.
>>45919984You will be surprised how many retards are there hyping for gen4 remake despite the red flags since oras.
Serebii already said this year's game won't be Gen9.
>>45918427Better that way, every remake gets worse
>>45924901Well good thing he's never been wrong before.
>>45920256>>People expect Pokémon ZThe smart ones called Gen 7.
>>45925094But we know the Z versions were cancelled. There's left over code in gen 7 for two unreleased Kalos games. I wouldn't be surprised if we see something pop up in the gigaleak soon enough.
Little chance of Sinnoh remakes.Game Freak simply won't view them as being worth the effort at this point.And if they do, it will solely be to pad the year. They'll be pieces of shit even worse than ORAS.
>>45925129Is that so?Which gigaleak are you talking about though? I haven't been around here lately.
