I wish we didn't have to pay for the DLC to customize our Poké Ball-throwing styles but I've already paid for it, so I'll take it lol. Hoping that little race minigame with Pikachu and friends isn't limited to just a select few mons either..!

I was mostly expecting the trailer to just be an ad for Indigo Disk, since it's just a week away at this point, and while that it is still mostly what it was, it did provide some mildly interesting info.

Having sidequests is nice and gives us something more to do in the DLC, as some games that go open-world make the mistake of making this big open world, but it's also terribly empty and boring. The open world games I've loved are the ones where there's a shitload of stuff to do and a fantastic world to immerse yourself in. The ones I've been disappointed in tend to be the ones that aren't. Of course, it takes more than simply having some degree of any sort of sidequests to make things enjoyable, but it's better than nothing.
As much as I wasn't a big fan of the Gen 7 games, one of the things I did like about it was the thing where you could change your PokeBall throw animation, so it's nice to see that seem to make a return.
Being able to apparently walk around as one of your Pokemon also seems like a fun new addition.

Though we'll have to see how everything turns out in the end, these things might not live up to expectations.

It looks like they've included a lot of fun stuff in this DLC, hopefully there aren't any tedious material grinds attached to the new activities.

I still need to actually beat the game for myself, and then get the DLC. Looks really cool and good though!

The game still looks rough though... no patches for the awful look of the game! :(

Looks like there's another legendary catch-a-thon... I'll have to see how that's implemented exactly.
Happy to see the missing starters of the incomplete trios return though.

The legendary mechanic seems very interesting, like your telling me I can lure a groudon to me with a snickers bar? lol.

Probably won't be buying the dlc as I can't justify paying for more pokemon.
