Tomorrow is also “Pokemon Day,” the 23rd anniversary of when Pokemon Red and Green released in Japan.

    The local group I'm a part of is already losing their minds and hoping it's an MMO.

    I may be in the minority, but I find always online MMORPGs to be taxing. Certainly have an online aspect, but I hope it's not always online.

    7 minutes long; so we will get the first forms of the starters, the logos for the games in English (and probably some other languages for context), and maybe a quick screenshot or two from the new region. Perhaps even getting the name of said region these games take place in.

    It's going to be short, sweet, and to the point; but the possibilities are endless.

    hmm... well, we have stage two legendaries now... maybe we'll have stage two starters! (as in you start with the stage two.)

    we have 2-pokemon-on-a-card-cards again now... maybe we'll get two starter pokemon!

    they misdirected us when the first hints of the solaego and lunala cards were revealed so we wouldn't notice they hid the stage two designation... maybe the 3 pokeballs are a red herring too, and there will be four starters to choose from!

    or maybe we'll get a legendary starter, or as an evolved form of the starter! or you could have a legendary pokemon only if you catch all three starters!

    Theorizing is fun.

    I'm only a filthy casual VGC player, (and I don't even have a Switch lol) but even I'm hyped for the new creature designs and locations.

    Also, I hope this game will continue the trend of XY and Sun&Moon and gives us a hot dad professor.

    Good time for Europe. Most children should neither be on Youtube at 6 am or 11 pm, but I guess Japanese children will wait until the next morning.

    The most exciting for me is the question what the region will be based on. Of course I hope for good games, although I don't play them, but I also hope for more Pokémon in that generation and maybe new baby Pokémon as they seem to be coming back to the TCG.

    Yay! Time for a new set of games with 500+ Pokemon in the Pokedex and only 50 of them are new. Oh, and most of the ones that are new are Legendaries.

    Times like this I'm glad I live in the same time zone as WPM. ;p

    So in the 7th gen we had a Donald Trump Pokémon. What do you think we'll get now? Bernie Sanders? Hillary Clinton?

    I'm just glad they gave us a day. Enough time that you can plan for it without missing, and not lose a week of sleep over it.

    Just a day. Only a day.
