    Hey guys, guess what, they release Homika's English name...

    And based on the Nintendo Direct that they just had, Homika's English name is Roxie.



    ... oh, too late. Oh! But you probably didn't know that the Legendary Kami's Sacred Beast Forme is going to be called...

    In other news, the Kami Trio's Sacred Beast Forme is now called the Therian Forme.


    ...


    BTW, in case your wondering, "Therian" comes from "Therianthropy" which refers to the shapeshifting of humans into animals.




    Though did not know the origin of Therian, interesting.

    Look at this, they actually did make new sprites for the Hoenn Gym Leaders:


    Also Alder's grandson, Banjiro:

    I wonder if Alder was also was this demonic looking when he was young...

    I actually like the name Roxie. The pun is a painful but the name is cool.

    Alder's grandson's team is Latios, Volcarona, and Garchomp.

    I wish it was Saturday morning in Japan already...I want to see some good videos of the game already!

    There are some on YouTube, if you don't mind some Japanese guy talking during them.

    Yes, like SPDShadowRanger said, Red is also in the World Tournament, and he is fought in the Champion's Tournament. Alongside his rival Blue. Yes people, both Red /and/ Blue represent the Champions of Kanto. In one of the screenshots of the Champion Tournament brackets on Serebii, you can see Red and Blue are about to battle each other in the first round.
    Oh yeah, and Wallace is in the game too, as a Champion. That means both Steven and Wallace represent the Champions of Hoenn. That also means that Juan will be fought in the Hoenn Gym Leader's Tournament.

    I really hate that this isn't what the anime is like. So will the release date for other countries be revealed after it's released in Japan?


    I wonder why they don't make a second anime darker and edgier for maturer audiences?

    Personally I'm still waiting for images of the "kid" Gym Leaders (Bugsy, Janine, Tate & Liza). While they can get away with not aging the adult Gym Leaders, about 10 years have passed between Gen II to Gen V, they have had to give the kid Gym Leaders new sprites. Though then again Red and Blue don't look to have aged despite being 12 in Gen II:



    I understand not wanting to make new sprites for generations you don't plan on remaking thus I understand leaving the adults the way they are... BUT YOU AT LEAST HAVE TO AGE THE CHILDREN GYM LEADERS & CHAMPIONS! Also a bit disappointed as it seems like Elite Four and Frontier Brains aren't in the tournament.

    Elesa has moved the Nimbasa Gym to a new building with a catwalk. The old Nimbasa Gym still has trainers in it with the roller coasters. The underwater tube we've seen in previews connects Undella Town to a new city. Skyarrow Bridge blocked due to construction. Brycen can be battled at the World Tournament.

    Huh, well would you look at that, Edmasterchaos. According to Serebii's Pokedex on Pokemon Black 2 and White 2, Heracross is confirmed to be in the game, #145 on the Unova Pokedex, after Emolga but before Blitzle.

    interesting that your not going to use your starter.


    wonder how the shiny encounter item is going to work. Looks like only Shauntel is using an older pokemon the rest of the elite four use the same roster

    Hey, just wanted to report that the Cool/Icy/Whatever Hole is apparently active as I went there momentarily. Why only momentarily? Because I got it RIGHT AFTER MY LIMIT WAS UP! That's right, I was able to go there but wasn't allowed to look for any Pokemon nor items! And of course, since for some reason locations are chosen by random, who knows if I'll ever get there when I'm still allowed to look for Pokemon or items! Seriously I wish they would let us choose where to go, or at the very least take us the new location more often then any old! Yell

    There's a new system, i think, basically you have to use different pokemon to get to different locations now. So if you use an ice-type mon in dream world you will probably get to cold hole.

    Well that's good and makes sense.


    I'm probably going to not use my starter as well in favor for some of the older Pokemon.
