Having a Pokémon series feature this magnificent game will be exciting to see considering all the new and legendary additions that were introduced in the latest title. It’s likely that the Legendary Pokémon will be a major highlight, but it would be fantastic if Hisuian form Pokémon are dominantly used, like Voltorb that is Grass and Electric type. The return of iconic characters, like Brock and Dawn, will be highly anticipated additions to the series, especially if they possess any new Pokémon from current generations. Can’t wait to see how the old and new characters will interact in this new adventure inspired by a game that has changed the future of Pokémon.
