Thread: Speculating things that didnt come true

  1. #1

    Default Speculating things that didnt come true

    Remember when you thought you knew what was going to be part of an upcoming pokemon game (english names, pokemon based on certain animals, additional evos, ect.), but ended up never turning out to be part of the game?

    This could be applied to any of the games, Really. Some of the things I predicted seem quite silly ever since Black and White were released.

    I remember this forum a little less than a year ago; "Wotter" was supposedly going to be the English name for Mijumaru. More interestingly, a lot of people speculated the same name for Buizel.

    So yeah! Share your old speculations; perhaps your hopes and dreams will be fulfilled for the 6th gen!

    This is also relevant:

    I guessed that HGSS would be called Glittering Gold and Shimmering Silver. :P

    Plat would get new Poketch apps.

    HGSS would have a Pokegear that was forever stuck on the touch screen, like the Poketch and C-gear. Good thing I was wrong with this and we got a touch screen menu. xD

    Alomomola would be a Luvdisc evo. Seriously, prior to the announcement that there'd be no pre-5th gen Pokemon in BW prior to beating the game, who DIDN'T think this?

    Ya, I was pretty much sold on the fact that Alomomola was a Luvdisc evolution. The number of similarities is often uncanny. Although both of the fins bending in the same direction at the same time is a bit creepy.

    Since this only seems to be about the games, I'm going to move it to that section.

    I initially thought that there will be a Type Chart change this time around, or perhaps a Battle Mechanic change, since for three Generations in a row, the battles have something new on the table (G2 had Special split, G3 had natures and EV & IV rehash, while G4 had the Physical and Special split). Not sure if the ability to use items in battle (via Wonder Launcher) is considered a battle change.

    Thanks for reading.

    Pfft, some idiot got my hopes up for HG and SS by saying the Sevii Islands and Hoenn would reappear. What a dillhole. But then again, Hoenn sort of had an incarnation with the Embedded Tower and the Eon Pokemon either roaming or being in an event. So, this guy was a misinformed dillhole, so he is forgiven.

    The DuskGold and DawnSilver/GSDS rumors, complete with the faked scan. I can't find an image of it, but it was confirmed fake by people who knew Japanese. Along with the Spiky Ear = 5th gen rumor/flamewar, that was one many people believed.

    Oh, and the people who thought WiFi plaza would be more then just a useless room were dissappointed when Plat came out. I also speculated that the E-Mail feature wouldn't be crippled.

    I'm still surprised Alomomola is not a Luvdisc evo, and expecting a between-evo in gen VI (Luvdisk evolving into a new pokemon and that new pokémon evolving into Luvdisc).
    I was also pretty sure the leaked started evos were fake.
    And I thought Oshawott would be Water/Ghost.

    I thought the water starter would be a water/ghost and the grass a grass/dragon. :|

    Why Oshawott would be Water/Ghost?

    I thougth that IV gen was the last. I'm glad I was wrong. :D

    Someone has a Mew for trade? Not much I can offer, though...
