    Has anyone ever noticed that Giovanni looks rather old? He looks like someone in their late-forties, maybe early fifties. Giovanni could in fact be the same age as Professor Oak. Also, Professor Oak being a grandfather at his age is rather unusual. He's mentioned to be 50 in Johto, which makes him 47 in the original Kanto games. Blue and Red are 11 years old in their introduction, making Professor Oak a mere 36 when he became a grandfather. Possibly earlier, depending on how old Daisy is. Professor Oak seems to have become a father as just a teenager, which could have an interesting dynamic behind it. Also, there's every change that when he became a grandfather, his grandfather was still alive.

With those factors considered, as well as the fact that the story would still be focused on Zygarde, a Kalos Pokemon, as well as being ran on the same exact engine that ran X, Y, Omega Ruby, and Alpha Sapphire and being able to trade/battle/communicate with the aforementioned games (minus the new Pokemon similar to Omega Ruby/Alpha Sapphire Megas when connected to X and Y) can you really say that it's a new generation?

    There's also the fact that this hypothetical Gen 6.5 game would probably be the final game of Generation 6, meaning yet another new batch of Pokemon, this time complete with an original story, region, and game engine, would come out after it. Would you really call one game an entire generation and then have us move onto Generation 8?

    I'm not saying that Gen 6.5 is going to certainly and/or likely happen, but to say that it's a dumb idea because it would simply be Generation 7 is a bad argument.
    Introducing an entirely new batch of pokémon that aren't compatible with previous games of the generation? Yes, definitely a new generation.

    The thing is, we don't know if the main story will take place in Kalos, we don't know if the main story will revolve around Zygarde, nor do we even have a guess as to if it is run on the same engine. So you can say all these things, based on absolutely nothing, but I can just brush those of the table, as they are unfounded. All we have is the following: "New batch of pokémon". Of course, now we know we have a new region as well, but I'm not going to let that spoil the fun.

    Having forms/mega's being game exclusive has been a thing that has happened ever since Deoxys, i.e. Giratina being available in Diamond, but Giratina-O only being in Platinum onwards. The same counts for Mega's. The same doesn't count for entirely new critters. That's what I call a paradigm shift, or in terms of this franchise, a new generation. You just have to come to terms that Gen 6 is over come Pokémon Sun and Moon.
    Answer to all the bad things in the world: Give up on trying to make everything better. Hence, accepting it for what it is. YOLO! <- Click the link and daw.. -.-

    "If I had my way in DP, Ash would've hit the league with: Pikachu, Ambipom (his to keep), Torterra (Grass/Starter), Lucario (Ace), Chingling (Cute), Bidoof (Water-type) and Heatran (Fire-type)."


        Spoiler:- GenVII Starter names speculation:


    The second line is meant to be sarcastic.. Though there was a random trainer with a Heatran at the Sinnoh League..

    Obviously it's silly for me to argue for a Gen 6.5 now. I have "come to terms that Gen 6 is over," and in case you didn't notice, I made that post you responded to before the announcement of Sun and Moon, so to use that against me is silly. I'm tempted to argue further for the plausibility of the idea of a .5 generation in general (I still love the idea and hope it will happen at some point), but everyone would misinterpret that as me saying Sun and Moon is Gen 6.5, so I'm just going to stop and not bother. So there, you win this debate, happy?

    Join Ash and Pikachu as they travel to the Tenno Region, a region known for its advanced space program. Along their way towards the Tenno League and becoming a Pokémon Master they'll encounter new Pokémon, new enemies, such as the evil Team Planetary, and, of course, a certain trio of Team Rocket members, along with friends new and old.

    Possibly, but I couldn't really picture Professor Oak as a guest on Maury.

    Jokes aside, I never thought that Giovanni was that old. At least, not as old as Professor Oak.

    Oak's forty-seven in Red/Blue(his age of 50 is revealed in Gen 2, which is three years after Gen 1). Giovanni does look like he could be in his mid-late forties. Though maybe you're right, and he just aged poorly

    13 Things no one wants to admit about Pokemon
    Wow, this article is painful. I hope no people on the fence about getting into Pokemon take this too seriously.

    That article is a terrible waste of my time. Many of the "points" are very arbitrary.

    The new Pokemon designs are getting worse? Let's pick on the easiest new ones to hate on.
    And nobody tell me that they criticized the old ones as well. Saying the same argument doesn't counterbalance their argument, and in fact, makes the article hypocritical.

    ...So what?

    My reaction to every one of those points was one of two things. Either yes you're right, but why does it matter, or no, that's not right in the slightest.

    This is not a question, so I'm posting this here. I just wanna make sure I get my facts straight. So if you could fact-check my statements I would appreciate that.

    Anyway, I think that wake up slap is a completely pointless move. There is no reason why Machamp or Conkeldurr would ever put the opponent to sleep even if they could. There are so many fighting-types moves that deal good damage without having to do anything to the opponent. The only Pokémon that can make good use of the move is Breloom. But other fighting-types who can learn that move, there is no reason they'd ever need it.

    Ok, just tell me if my points are true or not. That's all I'm requesting.

    It could be a weird way to screw with a rest/talk user (waking them up early wasting sleep talk). But TBH Champ is better off with Dynamic Punch and Conk, whatever he runs now. Plus they are also super slow and just give the opponent another rest chance.

    Not every move has it's uses sadly :/

    The beauty of having multiple Pokémon games from a generation is that you can download multiples of an event Pokémon. I have downloaded 3 Manaphy and I might get another.
