    I dislike of possible new typings because that would mess up type matchups.

    I would prefer to have Sugimori than Turner...the sheep looks another Bidoof, the Grass flower looks like a smaller Lillygant with Meloetta's hair and the Turtle like a mix between that Gen II turtle concept and Croconaw. As for the people, I don't like the buffed and noseless Grass Gym leader. The Champion...it seems like a pimp from Saints Row. The professor...a "nastier" Rowan, but I enoyed her grandaughter.
    As for Dynamax, I can understand that if we can shrink Pokémon in Pkballs, they can gett bigger, but what immediatly came to mind was a Dyna Wailord and also if people would get hurt in these stadiums (and why do we have to look like a football player while doing it?). I'll try to pass all of this Dyna business just like I did with megas and Z moves.
    The legendaries...I've seen better fanart and to carry a sword is just like having another Oshawott with a dilemma. The boxart looks cheap and awful.
    I hate yet again the new Rotom tech piece.
    I'll wait to see more, namely the versions exclusives.

    I wouldn't get your hopes up too much; the types of the box legends the last few gens haven't been immediately released (I remember there was a mass amount of speculation that Reshiram would be the first Light type legendary). They're just holding on to more info on them (typing, abilities, signature moves etc) which we'll get in due course. It's not a real indicator that there's gonna be a new type (in fact I remember in X/Y, Sylveon was the real one they used to tease that there was a new type, I don't remember Xerneas being used in that role - if they were to introduce another one now, I wouldn't be surprised if they used an Eeveelution -or some other generic mon- again)

    I don’t see any Pokémon go integration, unless I’m missing something

    Lesse then:
    Pokémon first
    Zacian and Zamazenta
    Pretty cool, I think the designs are WAY too complicated but they are blue wolves so gotta love that.
    Gossifleur
    Meh. We have enough floating flower Pokémon
    Eldegoss
    Whimsicott clone. No good reason for this thing.
    Wooloo
    Now we’re talkin’. Man this little guy is cute.
    Corviknight
    I LOVE this design. Just love it. Dark/Steel raven!
    Drednaw
    Ok. I like it, but nothing that special. When I saw this guy, I was hoping it was gonna be related to Turtonator somehow but nope.
    Dynamax is hopelessly stupid. I have no interest in this. The same Pokémon, just bigger? The first thing I thought about this was that the game designers just got lazy and didn’t want to make new designs for any of the Pokémon.

    Btw if anyone is wondering what Gossifleur's/Eldegoss' new ability did; the German pokewiki states that if the pokemon is damaged by an attack the opponent's speed is lowered, so it's like the signature ability of A-Dugtrio. It hasn't yet been revealed if it only works with contact moves though, but I'd say regenerator will still be better, since that one is a busted ability. I believe Eldegoss is going to be somewhat of a mixture of Tangrowth and Whimsicott gameplay-wise or maybe a mixture of Amoongus and Comfey.

    Dont forget they had to create over 800 sprites, so I feel like there is a point where you don’t want to make any more

    Just so-so. Wish they didn't put back in the Rotom Dex but they can do what they want I guess.

    All I have to say is, if there isn't a good amount of endgame content they're not getting my money. Pretty bored of doing the same Champion story grind and then having nothing to do. The last 2 Gens haven't had what made the series great.

    I took notes:
    Haircuts are happening. There is a shop. Did we already know that? I dunno
    There are red dots all over the map. Maybe gigamax (or whatever it's called) spots? But those are rock rings...
    The entrance to the weird floating cool building has a dragon or something on it. Is it a new pokemon?
    A kid has a squirrel shirt. A squirrel mon is coming.
    Pokemon got lazy with the crowd shot. They obviously copy/pasted.
    Is there new berry(s)?

    New rotom form (time stamp 2:12) NOT THE PHONE ONE
    It's different, go look.
    ...
    Sword legendery is so much better looking:p.

    Zacien is basically Zoro, and Milo is basically Mirio Togata, Change my mind.

    I love Wooloo! So cute!

    While I'm British but not really into football, I'm tickled by the gyms having a very football stadium vibe. Even down to the outfits they're rocking up in.

    I'm not keen on the dynamaxing mechanic. Seems a bit too uninspired to me. I'd rather the Z-moves or the Mega-evolution.

    I'm also not sold on the legendaries. They look so awkward. Especially the Sword one.

    They're so pretty omg

    And would a new Eeveelution be too much to ask for?

    In the Pokémon Direct if you look at one of the shots of Corviknight it shows that at it was at level 60 and had 200hp I don’t know if it was boosted in some way or if it was affected by it’s nature or something. A Youtuber pointed it out

    Well one thing is for sure - it was not nature boost unless they changed it there is no hp boosting nature.
    Can’t wait for all the leaks about stats and moves to appear.

    I kinda thought Corviknight was gonna be Flying/Dark and Drednaw be Water/Dragon. I was wrong. I like the typing's though.

    Yeah that was why I thought Drednaw was going to be linked to Turtonator. It would have made so much sense!
