I really wish Mega-Evolution wasn’t going to be removed in these new games; so many Pokémon could benefit hugely from a Mega-Evolution (Haxorus, Hydreigon, Flygon, more starter Pokémon, etc.).

I still think they should have left in Mega-Evolution as a constant mechanic in all the games going forward starting with Gen 6. It was such a cool mechanic and breathed life into old Pokemon that had fallen from relevance in the meta, and gave them pretty cool new designs too. Gen 7 gave us Z-moves which were definitely less cool, but still cool in a vacuum; Gen 8 gives us Dynamaxing which essentially combines the two? But rather than give us cool new designs (a la Mega Evolutions), we just get blown-up versions of existing Pokemon. Pretty lame by comparison--bring Mega Evolutions back!

That should probably be higher on the priority list, I agree!

Yes!

Also: How adorable! I want one of these too. ~ ✨ But I preordered Sword :(

Maybe will breed Sirfetch'd and trade them for Galarian Ponyta. ^^

I personally prefer to obtain Pokémon legitimately for the intended challenge of completing the regional dex so won't opt to do this. I'm leaning towards not hacking my Switch. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Did they really make a Gigantamax Meowth that's literally just Longcat? Never thought I'd be using a Longcat reference in 2019...

businesses are usually 10 years behind on memes, if not longer, because they have to get board and government approval in most cases or they could get in trouble...
(Expect E memes in 2039)

That bouncy fat Pikachu had m in tears: first of endearment, then of "y u are exclusive and don't evolve YET AGAIN" (btw, have I already said that making Eevee another non-evolver was an incredibly dumb idea once? Still stand by that; should've taken Clefairy or Cubon or Jigglypuff for the "pika counterpart" role).

Also: classic memes rule/

Apparently the games only run in 720p at 30fps... in docked mode. Pretty disappointing; most Switch games run at 900p or higher.

Seeing Pikachu finally back in its correct proportions is nice. Longcat is...long! I almost feel like it's a GCL tribute just because this is where I first saw that meme. :P

Overall I don't care too much about the gimmick Gigantamaxes to be honest. In fact, I don't expect to know what I'll care about until I play it (maybe I've said this), so I haven't been keeping up with the reveals.

I come and go. Apparently still more than most of the other regulars, so hard to say it's a semi-hiatus of some sort. Suggestions for wiki organization are appreciated here if you haven't seen this thread yet.
I don't have a habit of keeping Discord open, so direct inquiries are still preferred through here.
