Whats wrong w/ SM. Sounds like Smh.
Gonna ride the world like a merry-go-round

Scream, screaming, screaming bloody murder,
Personally I find Pokemon S&M a hilarious acronym and I'm going to continue to use it.

Eh, it's not like the fandom's so squeaky clean that we can't have that as a running gag. I heard more jokes that dwarfs the "unfortunate" lettering. xD
Aching is eternal. Healing, is a sought for art...
So, which countries does everyone think are most likely for the region to be based upon?
Beauty may be finite, but stupidity is everlasting.
Hey guys, I think I saw something in one of the pictures taken from the direct.
In the picture with the Horsea statue, above the doors, there are a bunch of Water-type Pokémon, such as Staryu, Chinchou, and Krabby. However, one of them doesn't look like a Pokémon I've ever seen before. It's the one between Chinchou and Horsea. Not sure if it's a new Pokémon, or if I'm just really bad at "Who's the Pokémon?," but idk. Let me know if I'm right or it's nonsense. :P
Oh lol I knew I was just being stupid. :P My bad!!

Yeah, I think that people are just being immature in regards to these abbreviations. If it's really that big of an issue, then just type out M/S, problem solved.
No one is actually concerned about the usage of the acronym. These are jokes.

Happy for Sun/Moon! Anyway...
I remember reading somewhere that the huge "hard reboot" tried by GF in Gen 5 (the direct homages to Kanto and Gen 1: For example, many Pokémon that seemed directly inspired from the original 150, like Machamp-Conkeldurr, Geodude-Roggenrola, Rapidash-Zebstrika, Woobat-Zubat etc, which seemed a lot like "replacements") wasn't well received , so they went the opposite way in Gen 6, which was more of a "soft reboot" with more indirect homages to Gen 1. For example, Red and Blue themes in the opposite versions, Kanto starters, an increased promotion of the original legendary, Mewtwo , and a few more things.
Now we are getting Sun and Moon. Think carefully and you'll realise that Sun is often associated with the colour Gold and the Moon is often associated with the colour Silver. Magearna, undoubtedly now from Gen 7, is associated with something called a "Soul Heart". Also worth noting is that Gold and Silver introduced the Day / Night cycle. Day and Night...Sun and Moon.
We also know that Zygarde's plot is still apparently unresolved. Probably it should be resolved in these games. Why? Someone put forward an idea a few pages back that Zygarde completes the XYZ trio, but could potentially be a part of another trio: The Sun/Moon/Earth trio. Fits neatly.
If Sun and Moon are really homages to Gen 2 like XY were to Gen 1, then this could also mean that the Johto starters are given prevalence this time around... And maybe even get Megas.
... Interesting ideas, right?
My idea for a crazy Pokémon evolutionary line!

What initially piqued my interest with the trademark discovery and the reveal was the title design. The Sun and Moon symbols to be precise. As far as I know the only symbols ever incorporated into the title design of (English) Pokemon versions was for Heartgold and Soulsilver- and they were clearly representing Ho-oh and Lugia.
The specifics about these designs probably show the inspiration and lore for new title legendaries we could be getting. Obviously tied to the sun and moon- but they could hint at the culture of origin. But there are so many similar solar/lunar symbols throughout civilisation that more game info is needed to make a solid guess.
