Good catch, I wonder what this means
>>
...dive???
>>
I wonder if other buffed Pokemon will also be rides
>>
>>33535679
>yet ANOTHER non-Alola pokemon being a ride mon
>>
Dive? Underwater ruins?
>>
>>33535692
Is this a wrestling meme reference?
>>
>>33535692
i hope so, i was so disappointed that diving wasn't a thing in a region based on fucking Hawaii
I'm also happy because Mantine is one of fav water types
>>
Seeing Johto Pokemon being featured in Ride makes me happy.
>>
>>33535679
Spyro remastered trilogy confirmed
>>
>>33535692
>Diving in hawaii
I'm still mad that I couldn't dive in moon, so they better fucking let me dive with a giant mantaray in tropical reefs full of corsola this time.
>>
>>33535697
>non-Alola pokemon
The regional dex could very well change in USUM
>>
>>33535692
Maybe it glides over water
>>
>>33535867
It shows Mienfoo in trailer.
>>
>>33535867
Yeah and include Charizard right?
>>
Since its part flying type I don't doubt its going to jumping over sharp rocks lmao

Please be dive!

The possibility of diving spots have me more interested than two new UBs.

It's gotta be Dive!
The Beach Houses are probably spots to get Scuba Gear, and the Beaches themselves are probably entrences to Dive Sections, which explains why some of them dont have surfing points

It makes sense since so many of Alolas water types in the dex are based off Deepsea/Seafloor mons like Golisopos, Toxapex, Lanturn, etc.
>>
>>33535679
Dive, Waterfall, or something new
Place your bets anons

It's dive
That beach doesnt have rock boundaries on the map

This
None of the beaches that have the white huts have surf spots, so it's probably for diving

Or a Surfing minigame
>>
>>33535679
Good catch op, maybe USUM might be okay
>>
>>33535938
Probably. Look at XY
>>
>>33536585
I feel like Poliwrath, Barbaracle or Quagsire would be more suited for Waterfall
>>
>>33537386
>Or a Surfing minigame
Really activates the almonds, it would get old after 5 minutes.
>>
>>33537644
The one from Yellow was pretty much Excitebike 2.0
It could be fun if they do it right, though I would rather they have diving if it was one or the other
>>
>>33535692
Please be this

Mantine a qt by the way

Mah brothers. I really, really hope scuba and free divers return, they're my favorite class.

Oh shit it's pink
Confirmed entirely new ride and not just a Lapras/Sharpedo replacement
>>
>>33535692
That'd go good with the theory the Regis are in USM.
>>
>>33535679
I want her to ride me
>>
>>33539131
Gen VII Free Diver would get a full scale model, if were in.

Though it'd probably be a different design, knowing the rules of Pokemon. I hope you're mentally prepared for that if so.
>>
>>33539239
I think nearly every legendary is going to be USUM, like in ORAS. Maybe just not the ones from Gen 1 and Gen 2 because they're already in the VC.

I'll try to be prepared, but goddamn I just really hope diving and the classes return regardless. Way too hyped over this.

This is one of the few things that would make me actually consider getting this game to be honest.

You're not alone with that mentality. Bought OmegaRuby on impulse just to battle the divers. Sad that only one from each class is available for re-battles.
>>
>>33539239
It'd be the perfect place to put in Kyogre and Lugia too if all the legendaries are back

>>
Metagross when?
>>
>>33539716
Why'd they rid of the Remoraid for good?
>>
>>33539301
This.
They do their best to make every Pokemon available within a single generation, So whatever we can't get with SM, RBY, and GS, we'll be able to get in USM.
The real question is, of the non-legendaries, which will be main game and which will be post-game.
>>
Yes, finally my bro getting some respect
>>
>>33541211
I don't know. Makes Mantyke's evolution method make even less sense, imo.
>>
>>33535692
>>33535708
Orton please go back to twitter
>>
>>33541259
I feel like Island Scan is gonna get a huge expansion for this purpose, I can see it working more like the DexNav to really stuff in more variety to the pokemon available in each area, without being overbearing as regular wild encounters

As for the starters, we have characters from each region who can give them to us since they'll probably add a Johto rep
(If not a whole PWTs worth)

It would be such a great bookends for the whole 20th anniversary theme to have Red and Blue give Bulbasaur, Charmander and Squirtle to a new generation
>>
>>33535679
I think rather than dive, you will stick a surf board on top of it and "Surf", if you get me.
>>
>>33535906
Where?
>>
Yay, diving! Hopefully this opens up much neede water routes in Hawaii-inspired region. The lack of water routes is alarming. I would have complained but I learned that regions like Hoenn and Alola are a must to have water routes.
>>
>>33541381
This was honestly one of the things I wanted fixed the most
When the region was announced to be based off Hawaii, I was mad hype because I love ocean settings and tropical themes and such, so I was pretty bummed when the map showed the water areas themselves were practically nothing, so it didnt really FEEL like what I wanted

Thankfully, that seems to be alleviated now with Dive being implied, but also with little touches, like the Surfers hanging out the beaches or the camera being less top down to get better views, which really go a long way
>>
>>33535679
Cool, didn't see that.
This new info has managed to calm my nerves.

We now have
>New PokéRide, likely Dive (please let me catch Skrelp and Krabby)
>2 new Pokémon, increasing likelihood of new Alola Forms and breaking the rule of "No new Pokémon mid-gen"
>Dex expansion (Mienfoo/Mantine) and redistribution (Lv10 Murkrow)
>Pikachu hat

My faith is ever so slightly restored and I'm back on the hype train desu.
>>
This also confirms mantine will not be getting an alolan form. Not that I really expected it to.

I didnt notice this earlier because it's a little hard to see, but the Billboard with the scoreboard on it is a Mantine too
>>
>>33541370
For what purpose? We already have Lapras and Sharpedo for that.

Notice how these beach areas on the Alola map don't have rock boundaries like the Paddle/Jet areas.
Also the water in OP's pic almost instantly turns a darker shade of blue like previous Dive areas.

I hope this allows for more interesting Water-type distribution.
I'd love to have early access to Krabby.
Also Horsea, Skrelp and Clauncher would be welcome.

Tha'd be dope
It could be like a challenge where you and some other Riders and surfers race to catch a certain pokemon or as many as you can, searching both on the surface and underwater,

Or like an actual race, like the Blooper races in Mario Sunshine with obstacles and relay points both over and underwater to take advantage of Mantine's flying too
>>
>>33539386
And they really nailed it with the visuals in ORAS. In original Emerald I was pretty eh about Diving, but in ORAS, the moment I had my first encounter, and saw the battle opening with the cool underwater lighting, and the Pokéball throwing out slowly, suddenly I was all "wtf I love Diving now"

If they bring it back in USM, especially considering the battle visuals have gotten even better, I'm gonna fucking cream.
>>
>>33535679
Why were there two water ride mons. We could of just had Sharpedo.
Now with mantine there are three.
>>
>>33541613
Mantine finally gets some action.
>>
>>33541670
I hope my boi gets some too

He's gonna be my main during my first playthrough so it'd be nice to see it have presence in the world itself
>>
>>33541640
cuz sharpedo smashed water rocks and was faster
>>
Mantine's diving is very interesting. Combined with Mienfoo in the trailer for the UBs and Necrozma, we're likely getting either a different or expanded dex. Which is awesome. Especially Mienfoo, because we always need more Gen 5 representation in these games.
>>
>>33542642
>mienfoo reappears
>it's early too
>still doesn't evolve until you're at the e4's door
>>
>>33541514
Name those surfboard inspirations.
>>
>>33543455
Wish one of them would include Toucannon beak's colours.
>>
>all the buffed Pokemon will be in the new regional dex
>>
>>33535692
it wouldn't make sense to have another pkmn for Surf
it'd better be dive because that has so much potential here

SM was the anthitesis region for water routes, it involves 4 islands and I was pretty disappointed with the results
>>
>>33535692
This post alone made me more hyped for USUM more than anything than GF showed.
>>
>>33543455
clauncher, wimpod, alomomola, pyukumuku
>>
>>33541514
>>33541536
nah i think they're two different things, maybe it's a surfing minigame with Pikachu that nods at Pokemon Yellow
>>
>>33544334
that's sad
shame on GF
>>
It's surfing waves with Mantine as the surfboard
