    I agree. These games are amazing and have something for everyone.
    I just have ONE question.
    Will Legends: Arceus have Mega Evolution? (Please add mega evolution!)
    I was disappointed when I heard people say that Pokemon DP remakes probably wouldn't have SWSH or better graphics, but also hoping for a near-carbon copy of DP. Contradictory, I know. Which is why I'm so happy that I don't have to CHOOSE between the classic DP experience and standing atop a gloriously realistic Mount Coronet gazing over the expanse of Sinnoh.
    Also really excited about Pokemon Snap.
    P.S.
    "Why does a Pokeball burn?"
    "Because its made of wood!"

    The player characters are wearing them in the art that's been shown, and from the footage they've shown of Jubilife City there's one of the three clowns that the character has to talk to to receive a Poketch. I think the brief footage of Barry sending out Starly shows that he's got one on too. I'd say it's all but confirmed that the Poketch is in.

    Exactly. The new Snap will finally be a game to really look forward to in the Pokemon universe, because the graphics actually matter here and the streamlining is natural. No need for wandering space or getting lost.

    Unfortunatelly that is not the case with the remakes of Diamond and Pearl. I really really want to like them but I already have seen the problem (the same as with all recent Pokemon games). Caves were a really important element of the adventure and they have all but decimated them. There´s not sense of space. No getting lost. This is especially a big problem with the gen 4 games as the caves were what made these games so vast and difficult.

    Maybe I'm missing something, but I'm pretty sure that there were no caves shown during the trailer? I was under the impression that the cave-like area that was briefly shown was actually the Underground.

    It was either the Underground or the Oreburg City Mine. Most likely the Underground. Definitely not a cave.

    I interpreted it as a cave, but I hope you´re right.

    It's the Underground.

    I'm pretty sure no cave in the region has that sort of layout (although it's been a while since I last played through a Sinnoh game), and visually it's very similar to how the Underground looks. Considering the official site says "the sense of scale in the originals' towns and routes has been carefully preserved", I think it's unlikely that it's a drastically changed cave area rather than a newer Underground.

    Unfortunately, I don´t agree here. Since the gen 6 games every cave has been disappointing compared to the ones that came before. It would not surprise me if they choose to go with scaled down caves; flash over substance.

    That being said, you´re probably right that this footage isn´t proof of that.

    I understand your concern, but I think it's just really not something we can accurately talk about when we've seen such little footage of the game (which doesn't even include any cave areas). And since Mt. Coronet is such an important location in the story, I personally can't see that being scaled down.

    Personally my biggest worry is that they're gonna ignore all the improvements Platinum made (although I'm really hoping that the Porygon-Z in the trailer is indicative that they're using the Platinum dex).
