  1. 2:18 The best way of covering up the file path and the NW4F tab (cause that's part of the Switch SDK and technically is confidential) on the Maya toolbar is apparently a piece of sticky tape on the display XD

  2. Wait what!?!? Game Freak is in Carrot Tower!? The one in Sangenjaya!? I literally passed by there all the time as a kid! Wow y’all just blew my mind.

  3. They have a whole MEGA themed Pokemon Center in Tokyo?? This kinda gives me hope that Megas aren't cut from the game forever… or they have to redecorate sometime soon.

  4. I'm glad that Game Freak expanded their space to do bigger and better things with Pokemon. Also, I want to visit all Japan to go to all of the Pokemon Centers and buy a considerable amount Pokemon merchandise at them.

  5. This is awesome, I went to Japan for my first time this summer as well. You guys should have checked out the Sky Tree and Tokyo DX Centers, personally found them way cooler than the mega center

  6. GAME FREAK please do this before I perish from this earth:
    gen 4 remakes, a triple A pokemon snap game, a possible collection of the colosseum games.
    a remake of gale of darkness xd? lol this last one is abit of a stretch but come on tell me you wouldn't get that day 1.

  7. If you're still in Japan, could you please share GameFreak's company address and email address? I tried sending a letter with some ideas and suggestions, but it got sent back.

  8. I bought a bootleg version of marvel vs and that character was in it thowing triangles and square's lmao.used a rare version of action replay with a coil in it for the original psx and some sticker tape for the ps one version.stil wish I had that

  9. This might sound embarrassing. I lived in Japan for half a year and didn't visit a Pokemon Center. Then again I lived in a village in rural Japan so that somewhat counts as an excuse I hope.
    But, I'm heading there again in February and I managed to convince my friend to take me to the Pokemon Center Mega (and the Sendai Fox Park). Otherwise I'll just stick to mountains again 🙂 .

  10. One thing I would like to have is something like the 3DS 3-dimensional view. It made things more immersive. I tried it at the store, switched between 2d and 3d, and liked the 3D a lot. I think that could look amazing for this type of game from what I see.
