Pokemon X and Y

Recommended Posts

Kii   

So who else flipped their lid when they saw the trailer for generation 6?

Personally, I cannot wait to get my hands on that crazy rainbow deer.

And the starters actually are pretty adorable this time, which is a nice change from the last couple generations.

And let's not ignore the obvious: we finally get a 3D Pokemon game (that isn't Stadium. Because let's be real, the story mode in those games sucked hard.). Did you see that volcano gym? Wtf? So cool.

Shut up and take my money, Nintendo.

That was basically my exact reaction to Fennekin. <3 I can't wait to see its evolutions! It's like Vulpix the 2nd.

 

Oddly enough, I'm not a big Vulpix fan. Don't get me wrong, foxes are my favorite animals since I birth! I just didn't care for any of the fox pokemon except for Zorua. I really hope that the evos retain their foxy look and don't go all anthromorphic.... and don't go the fire/fighting route. e__e;

 

The problem with Fennekin is... I'm a member of pkmncollectors... I have a merch addiction... and starters get tons of merch... and I'm going to be buying lots of Fennekin plush! XP

Anyone else notice how quickly nintendo is pushing out this game simply to help boost the sales of the 3DS? I mean everyone went out and scrambled to get the Black and White 2 yet it hasn't even been a year I think and nintnedo is already going *Look, More Pokemon!* Kinda makes me glad I stopped playing a long time ago. I am glad that Fennekin ISN'T going to be a fire/fighting type. Thankfully.

I don't know, I feel like Black and White 2 was actually just meant to tide people over. I mean they announced XY now but it's not coming out for about eight months, which is around a year after Black and White 2 came out, which is more than enough time to finish it. And there are plenty of games coming out on 3DS to motivate you to get it....that's sort of the point of releasing a console in the first place. To make games for it, and get people to buy said console. It's not as if they are going to release a system and be like "Psh, buy it if you want it, I guess. I mean we're not really gonna release any cool games for it, or games we know our customers like, so whatever, dude."

The creator of Pokemon actually released a 10 minute long video announcement about how much he cares about the franchise, and about how hard he and the team have worked since the beginning to bring the players a unique and interesting game play experience that still holds true to the original Blue and Red games, and how exciting it is for him to connect players together all over the world. While "Pokemon, Pokemon, POKEMON" does get a bit tiring here and there, with the games it's just as much about pleasing the players as it is about making a profit.

But every Pokemon game since the very first Pokemon game has been "Look! More Pokemon!", which is something some people may not enjoy but I personally look forward to each new generation quite a bit. It's probably the best part.

You mean games like star fox 64 and zelda 64 that I still own? Even the mario games which I bet are fun aren't really worth me putting forth my money for it. I mean how many times can I really shell out 60 bucks to have the same 2D platmorm adventure? If I freind or someone has it I'll glady play it at their house. But really I'm just bored with many of what nintendo is putting out. So putting it out exclusively on their newest handheld when nothing is really "3D" about pokemon just seems like a greedy corporate move to me.

 

And look at the wii, They were much less devoted to bringing actually good games to push the console and more so devoted to just pushing the casual/"family" gaming side that the wii is awash with hack games and dime a dozen corporate brand "games". It didn't help me buy the console and many I know have yet to get a WiiU because they are seeing a similer trend.

 

Pokemon itself is something I just can't do with the same amount of passion anymore. It used to be my own special thing when I was younger with only a few friends and we'd collect everything and play hour after hour to max out our levels. And threw the years we kept doing it, but more and more games came out and more and more people came into it. And now I just don't have the time or the energy anymore to devote myself to "catching them all" when I know that in a year there is just going to be more so there really isn't a point to it anymore. Really, I've pretty much become like any adult you see in the pokemon game or tv show I guess. Still love their own pokemon and can still understand all the new stuff that comes out but really, my adventuring time is pretty much over.

I like the game and the legendary but....I don't really like the heroine in this game compared to the other ones. I hope the option to change outfits is in this game.

 

White/Touka was my favorite next to Ruby's outfit in terms of the girls.

I might use the Fire or the Earth.

This.lol

 

And of course i cant wait. Tho im not picking fennel. Hipster for life son. Lol (probably will choose the water one. Screw the oshawatt clone. Lol)

 

And DS I disagree. All the other good 3ds games are pushing people to buy a 3ds. Such as fire emblem. Im foaming at the mouth waiting for tomorrow so I can pick it up.

Here's my theory on this: It has less to do with boosting sales for the 3ds and more to do with the fact that the reception for Gen V was lukewarm at best. I remember a friend telling me he'd seen info on Gen III remakes on Nintendo's website, and then X and Y was announced and now he can't find the info on the GenIII remakes anymore.

 

I think what probably happened was, they saw how terribad the reception for Gen V was, and decided to just go ahead and release Gen VI. Hopefully this isn't a case of the developers being all "But it's not ready yet!" and the powers that be responding with "Who cares?! We're losing our fan base!"

 

@Level-5....not to nitpick, but when you say Ruby's your favorite female outfit after White's...are you referring to the character or the game? Because as I understand it, Ruby's the male character and Sapphire's the girl. (They also did a really cool thing with the comic for that gen where Ruby, the boy, is the coordinator and the one who's all gungho pokemon trainer is Sapphire, the girl.)

I think s/he just meant the game Ruby. It's probably just a generation reference.

But I'd have to say it'll be hard to top the cuteness of B/W2's huge twintail buns.

But I think the new female character looks pretty cute. At least it's not a baseball cap.

You also have to remember that these games have been in development for 3-4 years, far longer than even the GenV games.

I cannot wait until October! I feel the 3d aspect of the game will indeed sell 3ds units, but also bring more fans to/back to the franchise. I was a smart move on Nintendo's part. I'm really pumped to see more of the new Pokemon as time goes on. I think this generation will be a big hit...

I hated B/W2's female sprite, actually. First time I've been so against a character design that I actually opted for the male character.

 

What I would like to see in pokemon is a female player character whose outfit isn't completely counterproductive to traveling around and roughing it out in the wild. Short shorts, a tank top and a vest? In winter, no less?

It'd be pretty cool since the graphics are getting better and better to be able to customize our sprite a little bit. Not anything crazy like Skyrim or something, just maybe hairstyles, a few alternative outfits, stuff like that.

It's not a huge deal to me, though. There hasn't been a time where I'm like "Ugh gross what an ugly sprite NO absolutely not".

Yeah, I'd love customizable sprites. We can obtain props and stuff for our pokemon, but I can't buy a different hat at the mall? Sadface.

 

Also, we get a pretty dress to wear for contests, but nobody thinks to give us a winter coat before going to the land of ice and snow? Logic wut?

i know, right?

dat 3ds fire emblem, son.

 

i can hold out on buying pokemon x and y, but fire emblem games come out way more infrequently

so they're more of an incentive for me to pick up a 3ds.

I am shocked because the legndaries actually look badass. I'm prolly gonna jump the bandwagon and go for fennekin. I am hoping it's evolutions are awesome. Its a bummer though, to have to buy the 3DS to play. I am desperate to play Ocarina of Time but I can't. Its kinda frustrating.

I love the new design, personally.

 

It's got the awesome color scheme of Mewtwo while being infinitely cuter than Mewtwo.

 

It's no Mew, though.

When it come to cuteness Evo Mewtwo is nothing compared to mew :rolleyes:.

Did they get a new artist? All the pokemon have a different design style.

 

As far as I know, no, but.....when you've spent the last...how many years? creating...how many pokemon? Your art style is going to evolve. Like...find your favorite manga that spans more than a few volumes, and compare the art in the first chapter to that of the last (I, personally, thought this was most noticeable in Kare Kano and Fruits Basket, personally).
