Japan is getting the Sword and Shield games in Winter 2019?

Is this for real? Where's the source for that? GrammarFreak01 (talk) 00:34, 28 February 2019 (UTC)

It's late 2019 as late 2019 can get (December). Japanese game release are usually referred to by the season.--ForceFire 05:36, 28 February 2019 (UTC)
Yeah, I just realized that. My bad. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 21:09, 1 March 2019 (UTC)


Request for someone to change the start date to November 15, 2019. I can't do it myself because the page is protected. Awesomelink234 (talk) 17:28, 5 June 2019 (UTC)

Request to add Nessa as the water-type gym leader. Gen3Confirmed (talk) 21:50, 13 June 2019 (UTC)

National Dex note

Can an admin add that Generation VIII will be the first generation to not allow Pokémon who are not in the regional dex to be transferred to the games? Frozen Fennec 15:14, 14 June 2019 (UTC)

That seems actually the second time, after Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! and Let's Go, Eevee!. --Daniel Carrero (talk) 00:23, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
I've been thinking... Technically, Generation I was the actual first time, because obviously no other previous generation existed. --Daniel Carrero (talk) 03:25, 15 June 2019 (UTC)
That would then also apply to Generation II, but either way I think it would be irrelevant since it feels like splitting hairs at that point. Klop422 (talk) 17:18, 13 July 2019 (UTC)
You're right. The important thing here is that the Switch games (LGPE and SwSh) broke the tradition of having all the previous Pokémon species available via transfers from other games. The articles about both games already state that in one way or another. --Daniel Carrero (talk) 09:39, 14 July 2019 (UTC)

Header change.

The header of the page contains the "Incomplete" tag, when it should really contain the "Expected Future Event" tag. DasRagnerokGPR (talk) 04:04, 13 October 2019 (UTC)


I think it might be fair at this point to recognize the following points:

SaniOKh (talk) 17:47, 8 December 2019 (UTC)

The first point isn't true as Ruby and Sapphire were incompatible with RBGY/GSC, the third point as well since Mime Jr. can evolve into Galarian Mr. Mime. The rest of them sound like they're valid though. --Spriteit (talk) 00:43, 9 December 2019 (UTC)
I feel like, for that last point, you should just say, "At the time of its debut, Generation VIII introduced no new Mythical Pokémon." Or something along those lines. Your suggestion just feels redundant and too wordy. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 03:31, 9 December 2019 (UTC)
Just added the suggested material. GrammarFreak01 (talk) 04:38, 9 December 2019 (UTC)

Expansion Pass

Similar to how previous generations have separated sections that specifically include additions from later games in the series, should there be a section that elaborates on what the Expansion Pass adds/plans to add? Brawlersinthezone (talk) 16:31, 30 March 2020 (UTC)
