Let's just discuss about the new feature in Sun & Moon that every is talking about right now and pushing wild theories here and there...
BUT i think i figured it out!
For starters here is the most common theory - just in case you missed it:
This are the new japanese logos of sun and moon:
Do you notice the krystal formed / diamond shaped item worked into the logo?
Now remember back to the logos of X and Y:
At the same spot there is the mega evolution symbol dna string. (a new game mechanic added in that game)
Also remember back to the alpha and omega logos:
They feature the special story relevant orbs (which also added a "new mechanic" similar to mega evolution - primal)
Fans right now go wild spreading the idea that they think they know what those diamonds are:
The unpopular manga "ReBurst" set in the black and white universe features diamond shaped energy stones that let the trainer literal fuse with a pokemon.
nintendoinquirer.com/wp-conten… here you see the stones
and www.artzone-chronicles.fr/wp-c… here you see how it can look like.
also here: pm1.narvii.com/6005/ff485f66b3…
But don't worry I don't think they will add an actually option to fusion with your pokemon to the game!
That's why I am doing this journal to let you know what I found out and can add to it forming my own theory:
As I was playing Pokken Tournament I noticed a few things:
this is called resonance energy and you can collect it. It symbols the bond between trainer and pokemon (sounds similar to mega)
Also here is the logo of the leagues ingame:
and even when you level up the visual summary of your power looks like this:
All of those feature a diamond shape. The whole game is based on that.
And you guys do also know that when you gain enough resonance energy you can enter "Burst Mode" which is a stronger
version of your pokemon and those who can mega evolve do so and those who don't just glow or change minor visuals.
BUT wait a second! "burst" ... "Resonance Burst" ... "Re-Burst" (just remember the name of the manga - it's the same!)
So what i am telling you is: "WHAT YOU SEE IN POKKEN IS THE NEW FEATURE"
MY THEORY IN DETAIL:
Ever since Mega Evolution some pokemon fans complain and worry about good balancing and they are right. That is an issue.
But what when i tell you that my theory is that they planned once to let every pokemon enter into a burst mode while some of them
just change appearence and some just don't but while they discussed that idea they quick noticed fans would go wild saying
"How poor from the pokemon company to give some new forms while others stay the same!" so they just left that option out of the game and
introduced mega stones instead only featuring those who change a lot as a new feature. That way they can also introduce
new formes every new game they put out streching the hype of it. Now in the new games they can add this feature as a new
main focus. Genius idea turning it from something people whould boo at them into a actuall new yay feature of another generation.
this will also fixing the balancing of the game again making the complaining fans mentioned befor start loving it even more.
Also the Ash Greninjia in the Pokemon XY&Z anime series was a tease for that.
And to fool people they called the series XY&Z while they DON'T even plan to do a game Z!
Why? Because that way people take much longer getting that they don't see a "mega evolution" but a "resonance burst".
You can say Ash Greninjia added a few features of ash (hair and cap color) (this is a nod to the ReBurst manga! But nothing more!)
Now you can say: "Hey the Ash Greninjia change appearance but the burst mode of pokken is not doing that!"
Well you are half right but half wrong. Machamp changes to red, pikachus tail glows perma and they add energy auras. Just to tell a few.
They are minor but greninjia is maybe just an exeption to make it so clear visible to better market this new feature I guess. The water aura it gains adds just to it.
Now knowing that "mega evolution" and "burst mode" is actually original the same thing it is clear now why they left out so many
obvious fighter pokemon in the rooster for pokken tournament! why? because pokemon like "mienshao" will gain new megas in sun and moon and that would
eighter spoiler it or make the pokken games wrong when they are set to stay canon. So they got left out and maybe come as DLC once sun and moon is out!
Now let me know what you think about my theory in the comments below! thanks!
