    Default Shinou's underworld

    What do you think Shinou's "underworld" will be like?

    I'm going to venture that it's the lost, preserved ruins of an ancient civilization. Today, however, slinky and shady types have taken up residence in some parts. But many other areas are left unexplored and untouched since the old nation's demise...

    It's not a very new idea, but applied to Pokémon, I'd think it'd be cool. Any other ideas?
    "It's...it's like winning the lottery, without the taxes!"
    "Remember, the enemy's gate is down."
    "And like that...POW! I'm gone!"
    "Buh! Buh! Buh huh huh!"
    "You're doomed, you junior-varsity losers!"

    It will probably be like those underground cities we saw in Colosseum/XD. I'm not expecting anything special, nor anything worthwhile. The route's will look just like caves, so no difference there. I hope they don't make us use Flash the whole way through. -_-

    Maybe one of the Gyms will be down there or something. Like a hermit Gym leader and some Team Galaxy stuff.

    It's an exciting thought, but will be rather short, I suspect. If I let my imagination run away with me, it could mean a 25-50% increase in gameplay content, but more than likely I suspect it'll add about 10%, with part of it being experienced present-game and the more fun stuff involving a possible third legendary Pokemon post-Elite 4.

    I pray that it doesn't involve a constant onslaught of Zubat. Its the only thing I can hope for. God, I hate Zubat and Tentacool.

    I would kneel before the Gods of Gamefreak if Zubat and Tentacool weren't in Shino at all.

    Come now...they aren't so insufferable, are they? They are quite awesome Pokemon, in my opinion.

    Hmm....figuratively or literally?

    Is this, like, a cave full of mole people?

    Or the underworld of drugs and gans?

    I think it will be like a place that's been over run by Team Galaxy.

    It would be pretty cool to see wild Fossil Pokemon underground, ala the anime.

    This is probably wishful thinking, but what if the underground system were
    somehow related to the Wi-Fi network. The Underground to us is mysterious
    and not limited to any pre defined constraints thus, could be expandable by
    any number of borders. Perhaps a whole world network underground?

    Like I said this is wishful thinking and mostly not likely, but you never know.

    What if it is like a subway? Maybe to opposite ends of Shin'ou, or to Johto? Or Hoenn? Or Kanto? Or...um...Detroit?

    But it would be cool if it had a subway. And not just the kind of train from G/S/C, where it was an animation that flashed by. More like the boat set up from the previous games. Maybe a subway or train will take the place of the ship, due to Shin'ou's lack of as many water places. Or maybe to that lone island on the map...the one in the upper right corner of the map.

    I'm thinking that this underground world is simply the Shin'ou eqivilant of The Under from Pokémon Colosseum.

    don't like something? fix it. stop complaining about it.

    Tentacool might not be in, because of limited sea routes, but Zubat will be there. I just hope the routes aren't like caves in the number of Pokemon that appear. I don't think it would make sense to have Zubat in the lower levels, as bats don't live deep underground. But I would expect Geodude, as the 'Dude has already been confirmed to be in D/P.
    A member on Serebii pointed out that there's a funicular going into the mountains on the Shinou map. There's also a town that looks like a mining or industrial town. Mines, anyone?
    I do think there will be at least one settlement underground.
    This probably means Team Galaxy will be big. And will almost certainly have a massive presence in the underground area.
