    I'm complaining that all they reveal is Kanto related not that they aren't revealing enough, they did exaggerate with the reveals in the last few gens.

    Nah... It is pretty annoying, I agree. I mean...

    We do have some Pokemon outside of generation 1 getting some stuff (i.e. Galarian Zigzagoon line, ending in new evolution of Obstagoon, Gigantamax Dreadnaw, Corviknight, Alcremie) but even then, generation 1 does have a majority of the new stuff still. lol

    I don't mind it too much, but I know why some find it annoying, since, you know...there is 7 other generations (counting this one) too.

    I agree. I'm okay with them not revealing everything and leaving some surprises... But what they reveal is just showing a clear Gen I bias. It's worse in these games than in the past, thanks to the lack of the National Dex. Now every Gen I Pokemon that is here will be there in the place of some later Gen Pokemon.

    Worst part is, Charizard is for sure the only Gen 1 starter getting a Gigantamax. Fuck Blastoise and Venusaur I guess. lol

    I guess that's what happens when Leon, the Champion, has you as a freaking ACE Pokemon.

    Just wait until we get the obligatory Gigantamax Mewtwo reveal...

    Yeah, I'm with all of you. Gen 1 pandering is so freaking old and has been at the heart of 3 generations, now.

    Weak trailer.
    Charizard only has one gigantamax form and no Galar form.
    Game freak has really gone off the rails this time I can't believe them.

    Actually my problem ist not necessary the GenI pandering, but more how it is always the same GenI Pokemon receiving it. Sirfetchd, Ponyta and Weezing are all fine, as they deserve it. But as if Charizard didn't get enought fanservice already. It could get only worse if it got an Galar Form.

    It's definitely the Gen 1 part for me, since it's been almost exclusive for three gens now. I accepted it well enough in Kalos, but I see no reason why they couldn't have made Alolan forms from a different generation. If it's just about certain pokemon being pandered to, then it shouldn't be that much of an issue since the only pokemon from gen 1 to get special treatment and Alola and Galar (that we've seen so far) is Meowth.

    For me, it's not that gen 1 is getting love that's bothering me, it's the other gens being largely ignored. I'm hoping that the Zigzagoon line is hinting at more variants from other gens. I guess mostly gen 1, but some from the others would be a lot better than just gen 1.

    You were expecting a Galar Charizard?

    Galar form starters would be great!

    I see were you're coming from and I share your thoughts on GameFreak largely ignoring the other gens since GenVI. The sad thing is that GenII apparently has its 20th anniversary this year. And did some GenII Pokemon get any love so far?

    Yes a Galar Charizard that has two version exclusive forms would be great.
    Totally need that.
    How else am I going to relate to little kids and the GO players?
    What's a zigagon again? That's lame is that the brown pikachu?

    Who?
    Oh that's the generation with the smaller size pikachu.
    Yeah I don't really much about the game probably because there's no charizard.

    I won't lie, Giga Charizard is the coolest Charizard has ever looked. I dislike Charizard since the RB days, so long before any pandering it could get, but I can't get enough of how ridiculously badass this new form looks. And I hate that.

    Why do Raichu and Persian even exist?

    And relevant.

    I mean, we kinda already saw a Charizard in the first trailer show and it was like any Charizard, so the very idea was deconfirmed from day 1.

    You're assuming they're unwilling to have two versions of the same monster? When Charizard and Mewtwo both got two different mega forms?

    It also seems really grubby that they're locking the gigantamax pikachu to people who buy Let's Go Pikachu and Eevee to people who bought LGE. It's so clear they're trying to get people to buy multiple versions of nearly the same game otherwise they can't catch 'em all.... which is not what trading was originally about. I'm just so sick of Gamefreak's practices.

    Also, these should all just be mega evolutions. Making the Pokemon into kaiju just looks kinda dumb in my opinion. It sucks that we lost all of the megas for this new power up. So now, instead of nearly 50 megas split across multiple generations, we get these new kaiju forms for gen 1 pokemon and inflated versions of everything not gen 1. The proportions just look weird when you balloon up a form 1 Pokemon to be the same size as Wailord. They should've just made the Gigantamax Pokemon new mega forms. Forget the stupid inflation gimmick. They keep adding new gimmicks at the expense of things which actually work. Last gen we got Z moves, but lost triple and rotation battles. This gen, we get Kaiju battles and lose mega evolution. How about we bring back triple and rotation battles along with megas, retcon the gigantamax forms into new megas (Mega Charizard Z, etc.), ditch the kaiju gimmick and leave Z moves on the ash heap of bad ideas. I wouldn't mind the gimmicks if they didn't keep cutting things which are actually good and well liked.

    I dunno... these games feel like a massive misfire to me. I like the new Pokemon.... and basically nothing else.

    A regional variant and a special evolution are two different things.

    New Pokemon is basically 90% of the appeal in my opinion.
