      So I just had a pretty good idea for a game. I think if Pokemon wants to go open world, Scandinavia, Russia, and China are the best bets. I personally wanna see Russia. It'd be split into an Eastern European Region and a Far East Siberian reigon. The western region could be more urban, with Moscow and saint Petersburg based cities and even have a red forest in reference to Chernobyl Ukraine. The Eastern region could be more open world, with references to places like lake baikal. The population would live in traditional villages spread throughout the region, some of which even host more Asian architecture.
      The two regions could be split by a reference to the trail mountains and linked by a reference to the trans Siberian railroad.
      Legendaries could live in the mountains, the red forest, at the lake from under it's depths, in far eastern shrines, in ice caves, in a place referencing tunguska. A major battle could take place in a reference to red square at the climax of the game. The champion could live in a reference to the winter palace. An arid reigon could even exist in a reference to Kazakhstan, where a space program could exist.
      In the far north (like in the city referencing saint Petersburg) very long days to the point of a midnight sun can be experienced in the summer and very long nights including can be experienced in the winter. Time zones can become important maybe.
      A meteorite for deoxys can be found at one point (referencing tunguska or the 2013 meteor)
      A Siberian tiger based Pokemon could be made.
      The music could feature many symphonics, choirs, and balalaikas.
      The story could be about innovation vs tradition.

      China could have the same story as well, with a cyperpunk version of Shanghai and a very traditional version of the inland villages

      With these open world regions, you can fly on Pokemon like Charizard, Lugia, ho-oh, latias and Latios, rayquaza, heck maybe even garchomp or arceus to get around at very fast speeds. There could be parts where you have to race people, or chase a legendary.
      You could even play as Pokemon instead of having to ride them. You could have a battle in the sky where your Pokemon chases after another. You could play as lucario and use aura to determine threats (you'd see in aura similar to that one scene in the subspace emmisary). You could have a mission as zoroark where you impersonate people to gain trust and reveal secrets. You could play as Mewtwo and use telekinesis to control things. Seriously, I can think of these ideas all day. Pokemon could be so much more on the switch, so I hope the development time is taken.

      Jace Frost I think they probably implied that for Gen 7 so they could focus on z-crystals

    • Theoretical Physics
      Theoretical Physics 9 months ago

      Jace Frost i mean I was joking but still we don't exactly know if megas and z-crystals are done; I've gotta feeling they'll continue to give old Pokemon new perks, or at least old legendaries (ie uxie mesprit azelf dialga palkia giratina and arceus in a Sinnoh remake)... I would'nt mind seeing some underplayed Pokemon get a boost (ie giving flygon a boost to compare with garchomp)

    Perhaps it will be a region just north of Sinnoh based off of Russia's Sakhalin Oblast.

    Maybe Project Beluga is just for the color that is associated with the Beluga Whale which is white. And that color usually stands for something that is clean or new so maybe Project Beluga just means Project Clean Slate or start over hinting at a new take on the Kanto region? Just some crazy theory, I would love for it to be an Alaska based region since I am from Alaska so that would be really cool!

    Following the trend, a cold climate would follow as hoenn, largely warm region is the contrasted with sinnoh, then hoenn remake released with Alola, makes sense with sinnoh remakes being due...

  • Adam Kleiner
    Adam Kleiner 8 months ago

    What if, "project beluga" refers to the white whale as Moby Dick, the obsessive ongoing quest. This would be more a reference the size and time invested in the game as well as the size of the game itself as it would be an advancement in the Pokemon experience. as the Chinese riddler has worked out that the games has been in 5yrs of development

  • TimmyDaTurtle

    This is not confirmation of gen 8. This is more likely just a switch port of yellow, or if it is a new game, It is a pokemon yellow remake. Just look at the image included.

    I thought Pokemon regions represent countries Alaska is a state part of united States not a country, the region could be in Canada, Iceland, Antarctica, or other colder climates if it's a ice region.

    Probably gonna be a push for a unified, japan region starting in sinnoh because the 10 year anniversary of D/P/P, beluga whales being white is more likely a Moby Dick reference about it being the first mainline game on console and it returning to the least liked region and making it work this time.

    Does anyone know if generation 8 is only for the switch or will it be available for the 3ds and the switch? I don’t want to buy an entire new system for one game, so the next Pokemon game being available for the 3ds would be great.

    This isn't confirmed... ∇︵∇
    •Necrozma isn't a "Gen 8" Pokémon, and no starter ideas were made.
    •Nintendo would confirm this on their own, or at least The Pokémon Company would if this was believable.
    •So many fake leaks are issued around this, so this must be an attempt to kill hopes.

    not sure, but that might be a misinterpretation. Project Baluga could just reference the size of the undertaking Game Freak have ever taken on. The first HD mainline game and the first on a home console
