There's a few that have been announced.

First was Pokemon Snap which has been released already. Anyone played this? What's it like? The trailers just do nothing for me and tells me nothing about it other than you walk around snapping pictures of pokemon... is that really all it is? Because that doesn't exactly sound like a thrilling game. I've seen people going mad about it saying it's great but if it's just that then I'm failing to see how it can be that great.

What does excite me though is the remakes of the 2006 Pokemon Diamond and Pokemon Pearl. Originally released on the DS, they look like they'll be in the exact same style as Pokemon Let's Go. The games will be called Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl. I really enjoyed playing Lets Go. The older Pokemon games are still my favourite, so playing them again with updated graphics is quite fun.

There's also a brand new game called Pokemon Legends: Arceus which is set to come out in January 2022. Pokemon Legends: Arceus will act as a prequel to Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl: set in the feudal Sinnoh region. Can't wait for this one either.

Yeah, I have New Pokemon Snap and it’s fantastic. I completed it in about 40 hours (snapping every Pokemon) and then recently they added free DLC so I have more to do.

New Pokémon Snap is a sequel to the original on N64. You follow a fixed path taking photos of Pokemon. You have to try and snap them all in four different poses.

I’m super excited for the DP remakes and Legends: Arceus could be amazing from what I’ve seen.

I didn't realize they were coming out so soon. I'm stoked yo.

I completely passed on the latest new releases, and didn't really enjoy UltraSun/Moon. XY were pretty good, though the whole France theme was meh. The graphics and meta were great though.

These two new ones, the remake and the prequel are right up my ally.

Sun/Moon I enjoyed. Sword/Shield though weren't for me. I don't think I got very far on it... I should try it again some time though as I hated The Witcher 3 the first time I played it and loved it when I picked it up again 8 months later. I preferred the games when they were simpler though. Like I didn't enjoy part of Sun/Moon. I don't care for the Gigantamax raids in Sword/Shield. Just want to catch some Pokemon and battle gyms as I work my way through to the top.

But Arceus looks so good. Just hope that since it's a prequel game it'll keep the features to a minimum.

Sword and Shield is good. UK themed.

Wow, agreed one-hundo. I also didn't like Witcher 3, but I haven't given it a go, maybe I will lol.

I haven't licked any of their gimmicks since Mega Evolution. The trials were a cool idea but poorly executed IMO, they shoulda been more like Pokemon Stadium mini games, which really woulda added to the replay value and coulda been added to the post-game on some island or whatever. Z-Crystals were alright. Hate G-Maxing (I battle on ShowDown sometimes even if I don't own the games).

That map and aesthetics/graphics looked nice, didn't even mind the Pokemon. But I just absolutely loath G-Maxing (the theme song is catchy though until it drives you insane---Lalalalala)

I love the battle theme with the fans chanting. In fact I think sword and shield has some of the best music in any Pokemon game.
