    Our dark ("Dark Lord Potter") theme is under heavy development. We also have a light ("Light Lord Potter") theme for those happier with a light background and darker text.

    Edit: nvm, 2016 holiday release confirmed.

    Still, just general connectivity pr stuff, no actual gameplay, images, info about the actual game, anything. Nice to know it's coming out this year, though - I'm guessing christmas holidays.

    Any guesses on where it is going to be based on. I'm calling Egypt, with the fire starter being a dark fire lion based on the sphinx, the water is a fighting type hippo looking beastie and the grass being a psychic crocodile

    England. That 4th photo in the album reminds me too much of Buckingham Palace for it to just be my desperate hope that it's England. Or the UK, but I'm using the two interchangeably.

    It's far more like a hotel than Buckingham palace.

    That's some pretty wild guessing, Locke, unless you've seen starter silhouettes.

    Is new region confirmed? Because Sun and Moon seem a lot like Red and Blue to me.

    Oh I'm totally talking out of my ass. I'm just guessing based on the duality of sun and moon

    Huh. I thought Pokemon Z would be their next game, but this works so much better.

    Also, could they possibly have been more vague on the details? That video revealed absolutely nothing.

    Eh, not sure Sun and Moon are the best aspect choices. It reminds me too much of Gold / Heart Gold and Silver / Soul Silver. They even have similar color schemes. But I guess we'll have to see. I'd love an Egyptian theme too. Britain might be too similar to France, especially coming off of X/Y.

    There's a theory that Sun and Moon takes place in Southern Kalos and that it's going to be like Johto and Kanto. Let me see if I can find it.

    Kalos has been done. Unless the region mirrors Spain there won't be a southern Kalos.

    Also, your username makes it incredibly difficult to tag you.

    Some people are claiming Singapore because of the hotel they showed.

    • Kalos has unused plot options like the locked doors in the power plant and the train station that goes nowhere in Couriway Town
    • This guy:

    • Anistar City's defining feature was its giant Sundial
    • There are also Moondials according to a Hex Maniac in Anistar
    • Zygarde has a bunch of new formes in the movies that haven't been implemented in the games yet. It would be weird if they put Gen 6's star legendary get new formes in Gen 7
    • Zygarde is powered through photosynthesis
      [​IMG]
    • 3DS cartridges can hold 8gb and ORAS only clocked in at 2gb, so a double region game is definitely possible

    So yeah. Nothing is concrete, but there's a lot of conjectural evidence for another 16 badge game.

    Edit: Is there a way to hide images in spoiler tags? This post is kind of huge.
    Edit2: Figured it out.

    Hawaii has also been thrown around. In fact the license plate image is the most convincing thing I've seen so far.
    Edit: And the tiki is FAR from Kalos.

    I believe the two games could tie in as there are definite plot hints but the image above says the item is from a region far from Kalos so I think southern France is a bit of a stretch.

    EDIT: Hawaii seems very plausible from that image.

    And here was me considering waiting out until the next gen console before giving in and buying the console again...

    Could probably compromise if GO actually moves forward tho, that's been too quiet for a while

    There's a running theory that X/Y are the "Red and Blue" of a separate universe from the first five generations, given the lines in the Delta Episode regarding alternate universes where Mega Evolution doesn't exist and what not. Thus Sun and Moon would be the "Gold and Silver" here.
