Oh, I like our two new Knight Pokemon. Ugh, they're going to be versions exclusives, aren't they? I don't want to have to choose! They both look really cool. Armarouge (Fire/Psychic) and Ceruledge (Fire/Ghost).
We get our first look at our villain team, Team Star. I'm guessing this is going to follow in the tradition of Team Skull and Team Yell, being the "fun" evil team with the main villains being...we still don't know. Maybe the two different Professors this time around? Are the Professors screwing around with time and ruining stuff? Or Maybe the principal of the school running the scavenger hunt? Using children to fulfill their evil plans? Maybe both? Neither?
Oh, there's going to be SO MUCH fanart of Mela. And SO MUCH of it's going to be questionable..."Fire Crew" also seems to imply we're getting multiple sub-bosses. Maybe one for each element?
This also seems to confirm that we're getting a Engine Pokemon, since we see one for a second running the Starmobile. Probably has a gimmick like Rotom, where it can take different forms..
Oh, it looks like we might be seeing snippets from all 3 storylines in this trailer.
Whats this about Titans and Herba Mystica? I guess we're getting oversized Pokemon again. I guess it's a way to bring back Totem Pokemon. I'm...not sure why they don't just call them Totem Pokemon, but fine. We already have one gimmick this generation, but another one is fine. I wonder what you get from defeating them...other than these "Mystica" items and probably a strong Pokemon?
Klawf...this is a sand-crab, I guess. Doesn't do much for me. The mustache is cute. Kind of reminds me of the crab enemy from Super Mario Bros 2.
Geeta's the league chairwoman this time around. Probably another candidate for a final boss.
Looks like they're keeping the puzzle aspect of the gyms around. Similar style to SWSH.
So, I guess our 3 stories are going to be: Fighting Team Star, Fighting Titan Pokemon, and Fighting Gym Leaders for the League Challenge.
Going off of Serebii, I guess we also have the ability to auto-battle in the game. You can send your Pokemon out in front of you and it can automatically battle random Pokemon. Kind of a interesting way to avoid grinding. Hopefully, you get a chance to capture these Pokemon if they turn out to be shiny. Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if this is our new Shiny-Chaining mechanic for this game.
