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.

nocturnal YL: My current plan is to play Atelier Firis DX now, which online guides suggest is long. Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX will likewise be long (longer than the original too, due to DLC, DX additions and I'll make the best items). I'll maybe play Ys Origin after.

nocturnal YL: Not sure about what I'll play after. Another Atelier game will probably be out by then, either completing the Secret series or giving us Arland 5. Either way, I'll probably play those before going elsewhere. Dusk will have to wait for quite a bit…

Nester the Lark: Wondering if I should get Mario Golf at launch or wait a couple of months. I have so many other things to play that my gaming (and wallet) might need a little breathing room.
Jun 17, 2021 9:23:48 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: The problem with playing Hyrule Warriors and a modern Ys game at the same time is that even though the combat feels somewhat similar, the controls are completely different, and I get confused.

Shrikeswind: Yeah I'm here, but kinda vaguely. Sorry, I haven't had too much to say lately.
Jul 8, 2021 11:28:57 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: By the way, I don't know if you guys have been keeping up with OCR on YouTube, but apparently they're dropping an album for a game I grew up on, Jet Force Gemini. Really pumped; I'll post a review when they finish.
Jul 8, 2021 11:30:44 GMT -5
Shrikeswind: Or at least when my Top 3 from that game are on the Toobz. Just one more song to go.
Jul 8, 2021 11:31:13 GMT -5
Nester the Lark: I feel like I've been neglecting the forum more than usual lately. Been distracted by other things. I'll try to post something when I get the chance.
Jul 16, 2021 10:38:22 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't have time to make posts. Atelier Firis DX takes forever to play. When I'm not playing, I'm in a read-only mode, reading guides and watching (unrelated) videos.
Jul 17, 2021 13:25:38 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: On that note, I'll probably make a review on the whole trilogy, so it will be a while until I talk about these games in details here. I can say Atelier Firis DX has far exceeded my expectation and has taken over Totori as my 3rd fav.
Jul 17, 2021 13:31:06 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: Uh, I take that back. Atelier Firis has a lot of merits, but also a lot of drawbacks. It's extremely tedious for 100% completion, and there are all kinds of other flaws. Still good for the exploration aspect and certain plots like Liane's character events.
Aug 9, 2021 13:38:12 GMT -5
nocturnal YL: I don't know where I'd place it. A bit above Atelier Totori? A bit below it? I still think it's pretty good, at any rate. If only they could keep this game's engine but dial back its scale and make a traditional Atelier. Totally not foreshadowing anything.

Nester the Lark: I've finished Ys IX, so I'll be working on a detailed write-up and comparison with Ys VIII.

Spud: I try to keep up with here, but the proboard RSS feed suuuucks. And Thunderbird is barely passable as a feed aggregator. I feel like the internet was just better in 2007.

Nester the Lark: I may have a little time to catch my breath...

nocturnal YL: Game progress update: Atelier Lydie & Suelle DX — defeated Falgior, so it's about 1/3 done (about 1/4 if I count post-game item grinding); WarioWare: Get It Together! — played up to the staff credits (about 5%, I guess).

nocturnal YL: This pic is how I'd rate my games on Nintendo Switch so far (subject to change). Numbers are meant to show relative positions; like temperatures in °C and °F, absolute values don't mean much.
