Has there been any footage or concept art released thus far?
well, it could get teased at the Pokémon day on feb 27.

Don’t think it’ll be breath of the wild engine, but perhaps more open world and far more detailed than let’s go.

I think they might release it in summer, as it’s so soon after Let’s Go. That’s my opinion, I think theyll tease trailers for a few months and release for Christmas.

I think people will want a Dragon Quest Open World stylee with cool new monsters.

Do people want a big map for exploration?

This is the most important thing for me, expectations are high and seeing what the Switch can do also has people hyped for how these games can look, it doesnt have to be on BOTW scale but they should be looking to get close to the scale that Xenoblade has. Im also hoping for voice acting this time around not just for NPC's but for the Pokemon aswell for example having the Pokemon say their own cries like in the shows.

Im just expecting a new game but in the lets go style.
Already been confirmed to not be like the Let's Go games. They said that immediately after they announced Let's Go because they knew how pi**ed off people were gonna get.

There's a few rumours going around mostly suggesting a game based on the UK but nothing concrete.

Masuda does tend to give clues for new games in his tweets and analysis of a couple of his recent ones suggests the reveal will come the day before Pokémon day but again nothing definite.

Pokémon are releasing videos about every region with the 7th gen region due the day before Pokemon day, why do I get the feeling the new games and region will be revealed on Pokémon day, the puzzle pieces are starting to align.

Supposedly being announced tomorrow night, the region is based on England. The starters are based on a dolphin (water), sheep (grass), and rabbit (fire).

Hoping one day we get an Australian themed Pokemon game. Mind you Sun and Moon covered a few things an Aussie Pokemon game would.

7 minutes is a good length but there’s a chance they could fill some of that with other stuff and fluff.

At the very least we’ll get the names for the games and the logos and seeing as though there’s three Poke balls in the image I think we’ll get the starters as well.

Some new gameplay would also be nice to show off what the games are going to look like on Switch.
