I love the retro feel of the ad, although I feel it's horribly misleading considering the number of Pokemon that won't make it into these games. Acting like they are a coming together of the franchise when the reality is the opposite is pretty scummy, to be honest. That's advertising for you!
Still, it's a very well put-together ad that actually made me smile a bit until I remembered what is was for, haha. It's pretty clear they're trying to push the nostalgia buttons...it worked. Where is my 3DS...
I agree the ad is pretty good. I also had the thought 'shame not every Pokemon is making it in given the ad suggests that', but otherwise it does a good job. Keeping the original spirtes in their respective gen's styles was a plus.
So glad Bisharp and Pawniard have made it in. They are some of my favorite pokemon, but they also match the region extremely well.
I have thought from the start that, "The Pokemon Not In" were mainly legendary pokemon and starters. With Galar, there are 72 starter pokemon total, counting all evolutions and 82 Legendary/Ultra Beast pokemon. That alone is 154 pokemon, making up 1/7 of the total amount of pokemon. Something that has bothered me is them going out of their way to make something to catch more legendary pokemon.
