    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    Hard to believe it's been a year already. We'd seen a lot of ups and downs in the time since, both from Sword & Shield and from the world in general. Thank Arceus 2020 is almost over with. Not out of the question. Zacian and Zamazenta both play pivotal roles in the games' postgame quest...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    Careful, people. We shouldn't be so quick to assume things. Newcomers aren't chosen just for "representation", so who would "represent" Sword & Shield best is beside the point. The Galar starters could do some unique things, it's just that we believe Zacian and/or Zamazenta would be more...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    I don't know, honestly. I could see a situation where mons that aren't part of the new region's Dex will be preserved somehow but won't be accessible until postgame. Or maybe they'll pull what they've done this generation and have you wait until the mon in question is available in one of the...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    It really has started to feel like these games are just too complicated now for each generation to only last three years. There keep being signs that the devs wanted to do more but ran out of time to. Honestly, my biggest hope now for Gen 9 is that it happens in 2023, not 2022. Come on, TPC...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    Been too preoccupied to comment lately, but summarizing my thoughts on the past few days' topics: - I don't really have a good answer to the difficulty question. The mainline games have always been easy outside of a few isolated incidents, and most of the latter (Your rival in RBY ambushing you...

    On the note of Mii costumes...an interesting idea came to mind a while back. If we get a playable Gen 8 mon that isn't a starter, we could see see the likenesses of all three included in costume form: Rillaboom: Swordfighter (with a drumstick as the "sword") Cinderace: Brawler Inteleon: Gunner...

    I think Fighter #9 and beyond is our most likely window of opportunity. The rough timeframe I think we're looking at now is: #8: Released in late January 2021, around when Byleth was this year #9: May 2021 (Revealed in a spring Direct?) #10: August/September 2021 (Revealed at E3?) #11...

    I do think we'd be getting more dynamic-looking poses, if only because Ultimate has gone for those so far. Though how they'd handle the amiibo would depend on if they were adapting a leaping pose: Or something grounded and on all fours: If the former, they'd need a built-in stand to keep...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    Yeah, there's a wide selection to look at, a handful of prominent mons worth keeping a close eye on...and speculation is only looking at a select few and not necessarily for the right reasons. Exhibit A: Hit it right on the head. We have talk focusing almost exclusively on the starters out of...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    I suppose I'd be okay with something like Rillaboom, Cinderace, or even a more out there pick like Corviknight, as long as the moveset was interesting and did something new. Would pale in comparison, though. The further things go, the more I tend to develop narrow standards for my personal...

    Side note: Steve is using a shade of blue as his signature color. This means the four characters remaining probably won't use that color. Not that it's a deal breaker for us, but it would require some creativity on our end. Maybe a parchment-like beige would work? Then again, we've seen more...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    One thing to note is just how much extra work the DLC team was willing to do to make their vision of Steve's concept work. Not only is the moveset easily the most complicated one we've seen yet, they had to go and rework the code for every existing stage to make them compatible with the mining...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    Alright, Steve's presentation is just a couple hours away. We don't have much to worry about, though one potential red flag is if anything Pokémon-related shows up in the Mii costumes. Would be a potential sign that there won't be a newcomer for them to release alongside. While you make a...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    Aye. Aside from there being only four chances left instead of five, this was a pretty neutral result for us. We weren't going to be the E3 spot--Fighter #8-10 is our best shot, with #9 probably being our best overall from my admittedly limited point of reference. If anything, the fact that we...

    The Legendary Heroes of Galar - Zacian and Zamazenta for Smash

    Okay, because I haven't yet, I want to take a crack at scripting a reveal trailer. I don't think #7 would be us (or anyone from Sword & Shield) yet, but better safe than sorry, right? ----- That...is actually a very good point. There's a pretty good chance these character-limited...
