A lot of fans feel that if 'Gamefreak doesn't care about Pokemon, we have to.' Which is the reason for the #nationaldex movement.

I wouldn't be surprised if Game Freak have more passion right now for Town than they do Pokemon, just because of being able to do something different for a change. I also wouldn't be surprised if more people and more effort is going into Town than Sw/Sh because of the outlook that the latter will sell well just because of the brand it has. Not that the games don't get effort, but Call of Duty could probably half ass a game in a noticeable way and it would still sell well enough for everyone to just take the hit and possibly rebound back on the next game.

Gigantamaxing, New Pokemon, and Version Exclusive Trainers Revealed
A new trailer for Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield has revealed a more advanced form of Dynamax called Gigantamax, new Pokemon, and version exclusive trainers!



So I guess Mega Evolutions are kind of back now? I wonder if every Pokemon in the games will get a Gigantamax form? They really should, since Game Freak aren't having to do this for every Pokemon that ever existed, so other areas should be getting more work put into them.

Still very on the fence with these games though since the whole Dexit thing. Not that I care for the Dex being cut down, but I do care that this game doesn't look like it's benefitting from that cut as much as I would hope for. I'm hoping the end result justifies that cut, and doesn't just come off as Game Freak not having enough time to do the games in the first place and just cutting down on Pokemon to try and get the game shipped in time rather than cutting out actual game features or game content.

Version exclusive trainers are neat I suppose, although not something that would remotely influence my choice on what game I'd get. That will always come down to what Pokemon are in each, since they hold the most longevity and purpose compared to a gym leader who's going to be a one and done affair.

I'll probably end up with both Sw/Sld, even though I plan to get Pkmn Sword. I figure with it releasing in November I can ask for Sld for Christmas & get it. xp

You can also get that double pack, queen, that they made! I feel like this is the first time they've bundled the games together physically. Hmm

I haven't made a final choice on my decision to purchase this right away, but I probably will end up with it in the end, I just know it LOL

No, USUM, SM, ORAS all had a double pack. I think the trend first started with ORAS because I can't find any double packs prior to it.

Uh, do I get a bunch of extra pokeballs for getting both games? No? Then I'm not interested. If I got something extra (like more Pokeballs, a special shiny pokemon, etc) then it might be worth it. Usually though in the area I live in I've never seen the duel packs for Pokemon games so I doubt I'll end up getting it, since I tend to get my games from stores.
