This building was leaked in a private trailer from the official Japanese Pokemon YouTube channel, and it appears to take the place of the empty construction lot that was present in Hau'oli City in the original games. What do you think this could be?

It seems to look legit, considering it is from the official Japanese Pokemon YouTube channel. There's also the fact it now takes up an empty space that was there in S/M, so maybe we are going down a B2/W2-esque route after all.

I am calling fake. I don't believe in this for a second. Anyone could of made that.


The official Japanese Pokemon channel's latest video seems to be about this new building, but the fact that it wasn't set to private means that it was able to be leaked everywhere. It's apparent that it'll be publicly released tonight, given that both Worlds starts, and they'll reveal info about it like they usually do (like with Crabrawler last year), and Game Informer did mention that a new feature for US/UM will be mentioned today. Perhaps the two events are connected somehow.

I think you're definitely right, considering it is World Championships weekend and it's usually been typical of a new trailer to drop around that time. I have a feeling this new facility may be what will be covered.

Oh wow, this is interesting! I presume this is in the location that was previously empty in SM, and considering it doesn't look anything like a Gym I'm guessing it could be some sort of Festival/Studio type of thing.


Edit: It looks like it could be a photography building for the Poké Finder

The trailer featuring the mystery building has been released. No details have been provided about the building, but there are some certain new things to watch out for, like that mysterious rift above Poni Island and Lycanroc-Dusk (as a Rockruff) being able to walk alongside us. Thoughts?

It'll be really interesting to see what this building ends up being, and if the rest of those empty spaces around Alola get the same thing.

Apparently it's been revealed that the new building is for a new feature called the Alola Photo Club. It seems to function like PR Videos in X/Y, but here you take a photo of your trainer and one of your Pokemon and you can also decorate it, similar to the PR Videos.

It's not just that city though, those other blank spaces appear to have been filled in according to the new map. (like in Konikoni and Malie city, but not Seafolk village for some reason)

It seems like it would be really lame if they were just dedicated to a photo feature though...

I really don't see the need to fill every space with the same building, then again it wouldn't surprise me if they did this.

Preeetttyy sure that's Chinese, by the way. No Hiragana or Katakana that I see, and there aren't too many Japanese sentences without it. Also the top left has 中国 which means "China" (at least in Japanese it does? It's a bit confusing). Aaand the Lycanroc video screenshot doesn't match how it's spelled in Japanese: ルガルガン (たそがれのすがた), but it matches Chinese: 鬃岩狼人 (黃昏的樣子). So technically not from the OG source.

I wonder what the building will offer that the feature doesn't. But hmmm now that I think about it. Ryuki calls himself a star. Maybe he's famous in the Photo Club? Maybe the Vermillion Gym thing we saw was a set, and the building has sets you can take photos on? Sort of doubt it... but I betcha Ryuki is maybe the character used to promote this feature.

In all fairness, many people complained that the photo feature in SM was too limited.
Poke Finder was a very underutilized feature so I can see why people gave it backlash. But I wouldn't think of that as a reason to suddenly be not liking this new Photo Club.

I think people dont like the new photo club because they were expecting something cooler. I think the photo club's purpose is to make up for what the poke finder lacked.

I think the bad reactions may be just a case of being too overhyped.

Yeah, after a year of speculating all the cool things the empty plots of land would be, I can share in the disappointment. Cool for the people that like it, but I never bothered with contests, musicals, or pr videos so I doubt I'll invest any time in this.

I actually like that they added more photo related stuff. I remember enjoying it early on in the game, but eventually forgot about it.
