Weekend vlog is getting pushed because yesterday’s Pokémon Direct literally blew my mind. So, we need to talk about this.
Here’s the Pokémon Direct, for those of you who missed it (or want to see it again!):
Pokken Tournament DX
I loved Pokken Tournament before it came out, being a huge fan of Tekken and pokémon. When the game came out, I got to play competitively a little bit… something I never dreamed of doing. Although I wasn’t so great, I loved it. I really miss playing it, too. I was absolutely elated to hear that the deluxe version of the game is coming to Nintendo Switch! I’ve been dying to play with some new characters, and I can’t wait to get back into this game!
Pokémon Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon
People were hoping for “Pokémon Stars” but I didn’t expect that at all. Think back to our recent generations: we’ve had no Gray, no Z, so why would we have Stars? Instead, we’re got Ultra Sun & Ultra Moon! A new story in Alola sounds better than a souped-up remake to me. My personal countdown is already on until I can get my hands on these games, so like please be warned that I am busy the weekend of November 17th. I’m happy these titles are coming to 3DS, simply because I don’t want to have to buy a second Switch! (Matt & I share… but not when it comes to Pokémon.)
The other little bit of news is that Gold & Silver are coming to the virtual console! They will be compatible with Pokémon Bank, which should really help us fill up the Pokédex!
Who’s as excited as I am?!
