    When asked if if cut Pokémon will return in future games:

    Just thought... Let's say all of the cut Pokemon appear in the next game being Diamond & Pearl Remake (DPR). If that is the game, doesn't that mean that Pokemon SWSH won't be able to battle against Pokemon DPR?

    There will probably be some overlapping Pokemon between the two, so does that mean that only those Pokemon shared between SWSH & DPR will be usable if we can battle between the games?

    I think, yes.
    We already have something like this in XY and ORAS. ORAS introduced some new Mega and the Primals so if you wanted to battle you must first deposit in the pc all the Pokémon that aren't in XY and the game will use "special rules"
    The real question is: how many Pokémon from SwSh will be in the DP remake?

    Yea, Gen 6 & 7 had that but to a much lesser degree and one that wasn't as big of a deal. Yea there were some restrictions between Primals, Megas, & Cosplay Pikachu but overall a good I'd say... 97% is a good estimate? Was compatible between the two. But SWSH & DPR (which will certainly be a Gen 8 games also) will be much more restrictive, forcing players IF they want to battle between the games to have a highly restrictive team. Heh... So much for "expanding" the variety in competitive play...

    You can't battle between Gen 6 (XY, ORAS) and Gen 7 (SM, USUM)

    That was really good but like you wrote, I think we won't have a lot of variety in competitive... (or in random battles) and maybe the two games won't let you battle against other players... :suspect:

    I didn't mean battling between Gen 6 & 7, I meant between the games of they're own Generation. Because SM & USUM had restrictions also between Poipole, Necrozma forms, & the other 2 new UBs.

    I mean something as big as this, if people don't get pissed then there's no hope for Pokemon...

    Edit:
    I'm fine if the Exp Sharing is a regular mechanic but they better let us turn it off! Cause all of the previous games were rediculously easy doing a run with the Share on!

    "I think players can choose the right playstyle in terms of difficulty for themselves."
    PFFFTTTTT HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA LMFAOROFL!!!! And how exactly are supposed to do that with more and more limitations being added?

    "Who do we have to beg for Pokemon Snap 2?"
    ASKING THE REAL QUESTIONS HERE!!!

    Let's not forget Lycanroc Dusk Form :suspect:

    On Twitter it's a war... but sadly after the nintendo Direct the pre-orders are doing good (and maybe in this last month they will become great...)

    I'm fine with the exp share but, I prefer to be able to choose :yeahyeah:

    Everyone was really happy with the hard difficulty in B2W2 (ok, it's stupid to complete the game to unlock it but it's better than nothing :yeahyeah:)
