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.
✿ Love others, but don't forget to care for the self. 🦋
Please be gentle with me if I go off on a tangent and am not understanding something. Capricious.

Nester the Lark: Speaking of the song "Reincarnation," perhaps it might have sounded something like this if the game had gotten an English dub.

nocturnal YL: According to Nintendo's IR calendar, they're going to release their financial information up to December 2020 on 1 Feb. Switch sales (68.30 mil at Sep 2020) may very well surpass that of the 3DS (75.94 mil), but how will it compare to the GBA (81.51 mil)?
Jan 31, 2021 12:10:02 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: It's closer to the GBA sales than I thought. Switch hardware sales up to December 2020 is 79.87 mil, while I expected about 78 mil.
Feb 1, 2021 8:07:53 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Also, while they stopped counting 3DS and Wii U hardware sales, software went up from 385.12 mil to 385.85 mil and 103.27 mil to 103.31 mil. Switch software sales went from 456.49 mil to 532.34 mil, surpassing that of NES and Game Boy.

nocturnal YL: So now that I have a capture device, I've been looking at my games and tried to figure out the resolution and frame rate they run at. Trials Rising is 540p30, Project DIVA Mega Mix has the UI at 720p60 and the simpler, single-singer PVs run at 540p60…?
Feb 6, 2021 11:42:34 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: All the Atelier games I've seen so far (Arland 1-4) run at 1080p30, which is a bit surprising as I expected a lower resolution for Lulua. Void Terrarium and Puyo Puyo Tetris 1 and 2 all run at 1080p60. PPT1 also ran at 1080p60 on Wii U, so no surprise.
Feb 6, 2021 11:45:41 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: ↑ In Atelier Lulua, the system UI and even some parts with 3D models (like the synthesis screen) run at full 1080p at 60 fps. That's a huge leap from the previous two games in the series. World map runs at 30 fps though, despite not being intensive.
Feb 8, 2021 11:13:44 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Rune Factory 4 Special runs at 720p60. Fire Emblem Three Houses is a weird case; it looks like 900p30 to me, but because of the way the edge of the models are drawn, the graphics end up looking very ugly.

Nester the Lark: I've been doing the same thing I do every time I consider getting Smash Ultimate: playing Smash for Wii U. It turns out there are still plenty of people playing it online. Makes me curious about Splatoon 1.
Feb 20, 2021 10:08:42 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The online also worked better than I remember. Maybe because there are fewer people...?
Feb 20, 2021 10:10:09 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: My skill curve in Smash Bros seems to be the opposite of other games: the more I play, the worse I get.
Feb 23, 2021 17:28:27 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: TIL I had not yet unlocked all the stages in Smash for Wii U. Just unlocked the last one today, six years after getting the game.
Feb 24, 2021 18:35:31 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: If you want a new perspective on your own Mario Maker levels, just wait more than three years before playing them again.
Mar 6, 2021 9:44:32 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: This kind of reminds me of modern 3D printing, where the software needs to formulate the steps for replicating the object rather than just going in a simple 2D matrix manner as in inkjet printing. Nice video.

Evie the Mother Hen ❤✿: From the looks of it we could create a Pokémon Family ROM hack, FE Family, etc.; but if the number of stiching points was changed from the original design you'd need to fix that with more hacking.
