In Europe, Heatran and Regigigas will be given away via a Nintendo Network download between March 1-24, 2018.

Depending on the version of the game you have, you will get different versions of Heatran and Regigigas. Here are the details.
  • Pokémon Sun: Regigigas that is at level 60, has the Slow Start ability and arrives knowing Confuse Ray, Dizzy Punch, Revenge and Zen Headbutt.

Product leaks are coming in. There's a similar page for an Eevee plush that has a blacked out circle beside it, and a caption from the store saying two new Pokemon are seeing plus he's. This is almost exactly what happened when Sylveon came out, leaked as a plush first.

So, with Eevee being a main featured Pokemon in the new movie, and Lugia appearing in the wind festival. Many are guessing the two new Pokemon reveals are Zerora, and a Flying-Type Eevee. The toy product leaks have been pretty reliable so far, so we may have some major reveals soon.

I buy it. Eevee always gets an evolution in an even-numbered generation, the only exception being Gen 1 when Eevee and the original 3 were introduced.

Hopefully they do a little streamlining on how to do the eevolution.

Just a thought, but the new movies supposed to have Lugia in part of some wind festival. So maybe the wind festival has some sort of wind stone, or festival centerpiece. The the game nods towards that by requiring you to level an Eevee near it to get a flying type eevolution. Similar to other Eevee evolutions, like Glaceon.

Of course there could always be two introduced since it's been a while. Maybe flying, and dragon? I highly doubt they'll introduce a new typing this Ben.

Haven't watched it yet, but apparently Zeroara was revealed in the new movie trailer. So that's half of the rumored come true (that he'd be revealed on Monday). Now to see if the second half about the new Eevee type comes true.

Hopefully, the rumors about Pokemon Switch are fake. Because they sound... bad.

If those Pokemon Switch rumors are true then I guess I'm not gonna be playing Pokemon on Switch. It sounds terrible. Going back to Kanto? They've done that with the gen 1 remake. Pokemon Go integration? I doubt it. How involved is The Pokemon Company with Go? I thought Niantic was just given the license. Seems odd to integrate a mainline Pokemon game with a fluffly, nothing of a mobile time waster.

More time has passed since the release of FRLG than between the release of RB and FRLG.

I have no problems with a new game in Kanto provided we also get Johto, there are changes to the gym progression, and we get a good mix of non-Kanto Pokemon in the region.

However, any Pokemon Go integration is an instant turnoff for me. Pokemon Go sucks, it only does well because of the Pokemon brand.

Nintendo seems clueless. They're giving us a Star Fox racing game while F-Zero is ignored. People want a mainstream Pokemon game on mobile, instead we're getting Pokemon Go on a Nintendo console.

Going back to Kanto would be fine if it was some kinda story thing. Kanto is the first half of the game and then you travel off to a brand new region in the second half. A remake of Yellow is uninteresting as the first Switch Pokemon game.

And I'll say again that Go integration is the dumbest **** I've heard in awhile. I don't think that much is true. I think that's fanboy horse****.

The rumors were pretty true then. That Let's Go isn't the new core title eases the sting of it, imo. It doesn't look bad, and frankly, I think it uses the Switch tech in interesting ways. Not sure if I will get Let's Go or not. That pokeball is tempting...

I have some concerns with the game. I understand we're getting a core game next year, but Let's Go just looks liked a watered down core game. If they wanted to make a fun Pokemon side game they should have deviated more from the traditional Pokemon gameplay.

I'm gonna buy it though and it'll probably be pretty fun. I just was expecting something more like a core game and instead got that.

I don't necessarily think its bad to have a "beginning" Pokemon game.

In a lot of ways, I think this is their remake this year, instead of redoing Diamond/Pearl they are doing Yellow.

I think once they reveal more about the game at E3 I'll warm up to it quite a bit more. Pokemon is one of my first gaming loves so I'm gonna get suckered into whatever it is. I just was a bit shocked by the reveal trailer.
