  1. I need to find out who the box art pokemon are for sword and shield. I’ll get the game that has the one I like better. On previous games I had Lugia, Suicune, Groudon, Charizard on leaf green, Rayquaza, Dialga, Giratina, Ho-oh, Reshiram, White Kyurem, Yveltal, Primal Groudon, Lunala, and dusk wings Necrozma. My first game was yellow.

  2. can’t wait! hopefully, we’ll get a more concrete release date. it seems kind of weird for them to do two separate events this far apart from each other, hopefully the direct isn’t just showing what the press conference did with a bit more presentation.

    1. I expect press conference to be more on non sword and shield stuff, apps, any spin offs, general strategy with pokemon going forward, so that direct can focus purely on sword and shield and not leave a bunch unadressed.

  3. Finally, some Pokemon gen 8 news. I can see it now…

    “This will be our final Pokemon direct before Pokemon Sword and Pokemon Shield release. Almost everything you’ve seen so far is what you get. There will be no new Pokemon besides the starters, no new megas, the starters have no evolutions, and the logos are just logos; they’re not based off any Pokemon. However, there is one announcement to make: Ash will appear in both of these games… and we’re calling him ‘Red’. Thanks for watching.”

  4. Hmm, I’m curious to see if we get some information on the “little surprise” Game Freak has in store for us

  5. Excellent. Now Nintendo E3 Direct is looking more likely to have a few new game announcements.

  6. Dammit, this is the same day my junior cert starts…. on the plus side, it’s 4 days before my birthday!
