    Cautiously optimistic, I'm seeing alot of things I've wanted in the series

    I always dreamed of different types of Pokémon in the wild being aggressive or docile for future Pokémon games. But instead of just different Species acting different it should be a Pokémon’s nature that make them act that way. That way you can determine if you want to catch it instead of wasting resources and energy mindlessly catching several of the same Pokémon to obtain the nature you want.

    Even if this doesn’t end up being practically perfect, it’s a step in the right direction. I’m very excited to see where this goes!

    Because of the open world aspect I’m looking forward to seeing how nuzlockes will work with this if there are no specific routes

    I recently completed an Animal Behavior course in college and I love how much this game incorporates activities and techniques similar to those used by actual researchers in the field! It’s nice to see that recently the natural/non-battling side of pokemon has been emphasized by the Pokemon Company, both in this game and with the release of the new Pokemon Snap.

    Kubfu definitely comes from the ancient Sinnoh region. ‚ÄúAgile Style‚ÄĚ and ‚ÄúStrong Style‚ÄĚ are just Rapid Strike and Single Strike. Kubfu evolved in Urshifu by mastering these styles along side humans and surpassing their skills

    i think there definitely should be an indicator as to how much hits the trainer could take before blacking out which would appear only after getting hit as its a little unclear as how much you until you black out.

    I really like the idea of the servey Corp and how it's a group of people researching pokemon and that you constantly record your new findings to them. Before with the pokedex it seemed like a one person job (just the player on their own), but in this game it seems more like a collective effort even if it's just you in theory. I also like how the pokemon seem more alive and have reactions to you, and it's more of a challenge to capture them since they attack back.

    I’m happy about the direction the franchise is going in, and I hope they add different habits and interactions the pokemon can have, see monster hunter world for examples, where u kinda have to study a Pokémon’s behaviors in order to catch it, I think it would fit the researcher thing their focusing on

    For what It's worth, I'm glad to see the main series sticking to its roots and evolving at the same time!

    I'm so excited for this game! I love Gen. 4, and I'll absolutely be binging this game with my two top-favorite buddy Pokemon (Lopunny and Mismagius) on my team. ūüíú

    I like the emphasis on your player being a researcher first and foremost. It's a subtle change that fits better with the concept of catching pokemon and exploring the world

    My biggest hope is this game is actually difficult to anyone over the age of 10. That’s all I want, a Pokémon game where the battles aren’t just spamming my top move to win

    I love how you can do more with the trainer in combat and catching. Honestly everything looks so great that at this point it feels too good to be true, which is why I’ll wait for reviews to see if this is truly what we’ve been waiting for

    At the very least, I hope this game sets a new precedent for future Pokemon titles.

    this looks interesting! i like the quest system and the resource/crafting system, and i like the idea of being able to sneak up and catch pokemon without battling. the move style system is interesting too. i'm hoping that the addition of quests and the premise of being a researcher will be a nice change from the gym system, which was getting pretty old! (literally, like...i was 6 when i played Blue and i'm turning 30...it was getting really old...)

    Im genuinly excited because i feel this has alot of the same style like monster hunter, in the sense of going into different areas, accepting missions and requests, and crafting clothes and items :D

    Haven’t been this excited about a Pokémon game in almost a decade

    I love how Breath of the Wild influenced over more Nintendo games. The music at the Fields, the sounds piano made at the beginning of a Noble Pokémon Battle, Just like a guardian encounter, the sound of the wind while you are walking by... this is a fresh change to the Pokemon franchise.
