So, the next new Pokemon games were recently announced, and... Woah.
I've heard that this new region, called "Galar", is based off of your world's "England". The vast cities (which give off a Steampunk vibe to me) and calming wildlife shown in the trailer all low-key remind me of Kalos, but it's still VERY unique in its own, special way. My opinion on the starters? They're all so cute, yet I can imagine they're all formidable fighters! Personally, I can't choose between the curious Grookey, the energetic Scorbunny, and the timid Sobble!!
Some speculation - Grookey is a combo of "groove" and "monkey", and its Japanese name, サルノリ (Sarunori) is a combo of "猿 (saru)", meaning "monkey", and "ノリ (nori)", meaning "rhythm". So, I'm coming to the conclusion we're finally getting another music-based Pokemon - A drummer monkey! It explains why Grookey was hitting the rock in the trailer!!
I also want to discuss the new Dynamax mechanic! It looks kinda weird, and just seems like a watered-down version of Mega Evolution to me, but it's still really cool-looking! Just imagine what Pikachu could do when Dynamaxed! Actually... Do you think there will be a different method for Dynamax since Pikachu doesn't really use his Pokeball anymore?
I spoke too soon! There's also basically Mega Evolution in Galar called Gigantamaxing! Not only does it increase a Pokemon's size and strength, but also their appearance, too! How cool!!
Yamper is also the goodest boy, and I think I want one! (I probably won't get one though, since I already have an Electric Type on my team; Pikachu!)
Also... What are your thoughts on the new Legendaries? Zacian and Zamazenta give off a very interesting aura to me... Well, I guess I'll just have to learn more by experience!
Oh, and the new evil Team? ... Ehh...They definitely seem like a loud bunch... but I think their situation will be a lot more reminiscent of Team Skull's. So, their presence will just be more annoying than intimidating. Also, here's to hoping they don't break my ears while I'm trying to confront them...
I'm SO excited to meet the new Pokemon, my next partners, and, who knows? Maybe I might run into some familiar faces (well, aside from Team Rocket. They follow me everywhere), like Serena or Cilan!
What do you guys think? You think my next adventure will be exciting and heart-stopping like Kalos? Or much more laid back and humorous (yet still keeping a sense of adventure) like Alola?
Just throwing this out there...
