I was thinking the same exact thing. It looks really nice. I, like most of us, was expecting Hoenn remakes to come out first but I'm all ready for it!!!

Yep, looks like I'll be buying these. The battles and world both look sweet, the new starters don't really look that great IMO but it's still gonna be fun.

Hell yeah.

Finally a 3D pokemon game and the starters don't look half bad.

Great to see that they are releasing the game in the US at the same time as Japan.

Super excited for these games now.

Maybe I should try to finish Black 2 in the meantime.

Gen V made gazillions of money. You don't mess with that too much.

May want to merge this thread with the one in General Gaming News

I'm interested in seeing what this Gen's Pokemon are going to look like. I personally disliked most of B/Ws Pokemon design. It doesn't help that only a few of them were good competitively. Either way, the starters don't look bad and it seems like they decided to change it up a bit. The battle animations look great.

I largely agree. Most of B/W Pokemon design's were horrid, but there were a few decent ones like Cobalion, Virizion, Serperior, Zoroark, and several others. So far, judging by the new starters, it's ever meh. Especially Froakie.

Didn't like them as much as Gen III, but I rather liked Gen V. Golurk, Galvantula, Eelectross, Zekrom, and Darmanitan were really cool. I will admit that several Pokemon had one limitation that crippled them (Hi there, Fossil Pokemon).

I surprised that everyone is getting it simultaneously. Hopefully they show alot of gameplay at E3 that blows the world away.

C'mon Nintendo... it is so obvious that there should be 3 games - Pokemon X, Pokemon Y and Pokemon Z? They totally blew it.

No, they're doing sequels now, so they'd by Pokémon XX and Pokémon YY.

Pokemon Z will be the eventual sequel, much like Yellow, Crystal, Emerald and Platinum.

I'm glad it's not. I always prefer new games to remakes.


This looks great though. I'm glad Pokemon is finally being updated.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community. 

 

 

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

I'm so conflicted. The game looks awesome, but dammit, I didnt want a new generation....

The last one was just horrible to me, hardly even memorable outside of a few Pokemon. Hoping for something more like the 2nd generation where they add new evolutions/pre-evolved forms for older Pokemon.

See, I am the opposite. I hated Gen II and Gen IV because there weren't a lot of new Pokemon to experiment with. And most of said new Pokemon sucked horribly. When I start up a new game, I want to use exclusively new Pokemon until the postgame. Kinda hard to do that when the new Flying-type is beyond horrible and the only wild Fire-type is a Gen I Pokemon. I absolutely loved Black and White's "No old Pokemon until postgame" mechanic, though it seems that will be a one-time thing.

This might be the first even Generation I actually liked.

Yeah, Pokemon games are always worth the release day price, you get enough gameplay out of them to justify it, its hard to find deals on them too so you may as well just get it at launch. Also sometimes they offer exclusive Pokemon within a couple weeks of launch plus nice preorder items which makes it worthwhile to get them on launch day.
