If it's not Cosmic Eclipse then I don't care.

On the logo it shows Grookey cooking something that looks suspiciosly like a Magikarp....

And I'm glad to have the Shining Fates set symbol now.

TPCi didn't show any Base Set card during the first part of the video cause they couldn't get their hands on any.

That is a Magikarp fan used for cooking curry while camping. Used for fanning the flames.

I'm excited for the jumbo cards but the whole Katy Perry partnership is wack...isn't she a has-been by now?? Odd choice.

Most of the starters in the logo feature something significant from that generation, but gen 5 is just "well idk top hats and parasols because why not".

I don't know what that thermometer and lunch basket in gen 3 and 4 are supposed to stand for but neither of them seem as completely random as the "theme" for gen 5. Unless I'm missing something.

You know, I wasn't remembering things correctly, but it was amusing to me that Pokemon was partnering up with Katy Perry because I thought she had a concert in Nashville during Worlds 2018. It was actually Taylor Swift. But again, the thought of people at TPC taking that opportunity to talk to 'Katy Perry' during Worlds for a later partnership amused me. At least I can make myself laugh. :rolleyes:

In any case, I'll be looking forward to more information on all of the 25th anniversary stuff.

I've never played gen 5 but I think the parasol and pieces of clothing come from either contests or something to do with dreams, I remember seeing them in the title movie for black and white.

Gen 3 has the Pokeblock Case that you use to store the pokeblocks in for feeding to pokemon for the Pokemon Contests.
Gen 4 is actually the Poffin case, which is pretty much like Gen 4's versions of Pokeblocks
Gen 5 are the accessories you can dress you pokemon up in for the Pokemon Musical thing which was specifically in those games.

I can't tell if they're sneak-peeking a vinyl release, or if that's just a dummy prop. Surprised they haven't tapped into that market yet.
