I'm not gonna lie...this is hella cute. It makes me like Pyukumuku even more. Can't wait to do this in SuMo!
Edit: Now that I think about it...if Pyukumuku's entry about it being chucked into the sea has some significance in the game..what about other Alola Pokemon? Will we have to beware of Turtonator near Volcanoes? Or maybe we have to hug a bunch of Bewears to calm them down?...and maybe we have to stick a hand through a Sandyghast as a Ghost Trial Captain quest? If this is case, SuMo are gonna be awesome!
That is some mad bank the MC gets for cleaning up the beach. I had no probpek with raking in cash frm Hotel Richissime in XY, I have no problems with this either. Is this next to the giant hotel on Akala island? Cause this would imply you can loop from there to the volcano area. Whoa. Oh wait, there is a small beach area underneath the golf course and its still blocked off, never mind. Still, that area looks gorgeous
Who knew that throwing a bunch of sea cucumbers back into the ocean would get me so psyched about these games? I really liked the sound effects and the environment that was shown in this footage, and nice little sidequests like that other than the main story and post-game are always enjoyable to me.
I'm a little disappointed that the screen just fades to black and we get a splooshing sound rather than actually getting to carry the things to the water and chucking them in ourselves.
I mean, I can see why they did it that way, but it's kind of meh to me.
Ever since I read the description for Pyukumuku I had hoped there would be an in-game feature along those lines. I'm glad my wish came to fruition because it makes the wild Pokémon lore seem more meaningful rather than just filler text on a website. It's a shame there isn't a unique animation for throwing the Pyukumuku--that cut to black really stands out--but overall I'm glad this feature is included. I wonder if other Pokémon's lores will prove to actually be utilized in-game; it would definitely add to the immersion of the game.
