Anyone else playing/plan on starting these? I haven’t had a main series game since Black/White 2, and my buddy bought both Sword and Shield for my girlfriend and I as our birthday presents...they’re being delivered today, and I am SO stoked!!

EDIT: Since BDSP comes out this week and Legends: Arceus in a couple of months, figured it was the right time to change this from a Sword and Shield chat to a discussion about the franchise overall…something we’d already been doing here for months 😤
EDIT 2: Legends: Arceus is officially out!! Talk about it as you wish :cheers:
EDIT 3: Gen 9 was announced today!! Scarlet and Violet will be the next mainline installments, and you bet your sweet ass we’ll be talking about them here!!

Playing it as well and Scorbunny Squad. How far is everyone? Already heading to 4th Gym Challenge.
My girlfriend and I only have one console, so she’s been playing most of the time (and already progressed to the second Gym), but I requested the day off of work tomorrow specifically to catch up and (hopefully) surpass her #ScorbunnySquad4Lyfe

Pokemon seems to never die because they always know that way to get everyone loving their shit again.
I took a couple of generations off (other than GO), so it’s easier to meet these games head on with a kind of zeal I haven’t felt since I was a teenager. Definitely a lot of familiarity, but it feels new enough that I can enjoy it anew!

Pokemon Has Grossed “Billions” More Than the Entire Star Wars Franchise. Somehow, some way, Pokemon has outsold Star Wars in terms of total revenue. ... That's why it's current revenue as of 2017 is a little over $55 billion dollars, while Star Wars is resting at about $42 billion dollars as of 2015.

Actually taking my time catching Pokemon in Wild Area while training my own. Really great addition to the Core games as it feels more realistic on Pokemon World.
Been going back there after every badge (about to try for my 5th) and doing hella Raid Battles, those Experience candies are a godsend!
