So, the seventh generation of main Pokémon games is being released worldwide on November 18th. It will include Chinese (traditional and simplified) as new languages.
It will be set in the new, insular, ALOLA region, which is based off of Hawaii.
Pokémon Sun's legendary Pokémon, SOLGALEO, which is Psychic/Steel-type, has a Clear Body-like Ability named FULL METAL BODY and a move named SUNSTEEL STRIKE.
Pokémon Moon's legendary Pokémon, LUNALA, which is Psychic/Ghost-type, has a Multiscale-like Ability named SHADOW SHIELD and a move named MOONGEIST BEAM.
Starter Pokémon: ROWLET (a Grass/Flying-type barn owl), LITTEN (a Fire-type cat with fiery hairballs) and POPPLIO (a Water-type sea lion good at snorting out balloons made of water).
This is you.
This is PROFESSOR KUKUI, the local Pokémon Professor, specialized in Pokémon moves.
Local, common Pokémon in the Alola region: the Normal/Flying-type woodpecker Pokémon, PIKIPEK, the Normal-type mongoose Pokémon, YUNGOOS, and the Bug-type pupa Pokémon, GRUBBIN.
You might have already heard about MAGEARNA, a Mythical Pokémon (event-exclusive legendary Pokémon), which is Steel/Fairy-type and was made by a human hundreds of years ago by gathering the life energy from Pokémon. It's going to be unlocked by using a QR code. It's also the star of the 19th Pokémon movie together with Volcanion.
A new battle format comes with Pokémon Sun and Moon: BATTLE ROYAL, which is basically battles for up to 4 participants.
CoroCoro have leaked as usual and has revealed two new Pokémon known in Japanese as Kiteruguma and Mimikkyu. I really love the designs of the Sun and Moon Pokémon so far, and they personally remind me and my friend of Yokai Watch monster designs.
When I saw Mimikkyu I also thought of Netamon; which is rumoured to be one of the Pokémon from the Pokémon Gold and Silver trial demo from Nintendo Space World 1997 (which featured unused Pokémon including at least Honouguma and Kurusu), although it very likely isn't Netamon, and Netamon (which sounds similar to Ditto's Japanese name Metamon) may not have actually ever existed.
From Serebii (reworded): Kiteruguma is a bear who scares people, so they put up warning signs against it. It can "break anything in two", and trainers risk their life in raising this Pokémon but it likes to hug its trainers.
Mimikkyu dislikes sunlight and prefers dark places. It wears a cloth and it is rumoured this is a means to avoid the sun. If one removes the cloth it might inflict that person with an illness. Its costume is based on old Pikachu merchandise and it wishes to be more popular like Pikachu.

nocturnal YL: Good to hear! Best of wishes to you and to your sister's family.

Nester the Lark: Congrats again, Uncle Shrikes!

Nester the Lark: The Japanese voice actor for Adol (of the Ys series), Yuji Kaji, will be making an appearance at Konami's TGS presentation to "represent the fans." In the past, Konami has showcased Falcom's games at TGS. I wonder if there will be more to it...

Nester the Lark: I'm reluctant to do spoiler discussions because if people are playing the game, they wouldn't want spoilers, and if they're not playing the game, they wouldn't be interested anyway.
Sept 3, 2022 9:00:36 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'm… not sure if I'll read your spoiler discussions. I don't think I'll get the chance to play this, but at the same time, I'm not entirely sure I won't, either.

nocturnal YL: I have yet another pile of games waiting to be played. Due to various circumstances (I'm busy at work, this month's weekends are filled with family events, and Project DIVA Mega Mix just got new DLC), I'm not able to play them yet.
Sept 4, 2022 11:30:56 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I'm currently at 34 Switch games played. I've been thinking about my Switch review videos and I'll make another at 36 or 40 games. Leaning towards 36.
Sept 4, 2022 11:38:00 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I actually wanted to remake the older ones as well. I didn't notice that the 2nd video had volume issues in the audio until I have my current PC.

Nester the Lark: If you're thinking of playing Xenoblade Chronicles 3, then definitely *don't* read the late-game spoilers I posted.
Sept 4, 2022 19:04:34 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: So I assume everyone here's heard the news but for those who haven't, Queen Elizabeth died today.
Sept 8, 2022 14:50:28 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: I learned on the way home from work today - I stopped in at a McDonalds for lunch, was checking the news in line, and...well, there it was.
Sept 8, 2022 14:51:39 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I knew it was serious when I heard the whole royal family dropped whatever they were doing to be by her side.
Sept 9, 2022 8:49:46 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I'm not British, but there's never not been a Queen of England during my lifetime (and indeed, most of a lifetime before that), so even though I knew it had to happen eventually, it still feels a little weird.
Sept 9, 2022 8:50:55 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I guess there is still the "Queen Consort," but I'm talking about how there's a King now.
Sept 9, 2022 9:13:49 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Well, a lot to take in there. I'll post my impressions either later or tomorrow.

Nester the Lark: The English lip sync in Xenoblade Chronicles 3 has spoiled me. I was hoping Fire Emblem: Engage would have it, too, but comparing the English and Japanese trailers, it doesn't seem to be the case.
Sept 19, 2022 8:44:03 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should create a thread for Fire Emblem: Engage, or just talk about it in the general Fire Emblem thread...
Sept 19, 2022 8:55:44 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: Nintendo has had a good rhythm with their releases. When I'm tired of Xenoblade, they release a new Fire Emblem. When I'm tired of Fire Emblem, they release a new Xenoblade. When I'm tired of both, they release a new Zelda.

nocturnal YL: Super Mario Galaxy 2 is a relatively new game in terms of TAS, so it usually doesn't look as impressive as Super Mario 64. But sometimes we get stuff like this: Cosmic Cove Green Star 1 in 20.58s
