I hope that at least one retailer does what a retailer seems to do with the release of every new pokemon game, and do buy one of those and get another 3ds game half off (so you could buy pokemon x and get y half off), cuz then I can buy it with a friend, and get a better deal.

Definitely. I'm just hoping they don't add a ton of legendaries this Gen. I don't know why the hell they have been doing that. The originals had five, G/S had 6, and then B/W had ten (or was it eleven?).

Yeah, and not to mention that you see previous legendaries in there (the regis, Latios/as, and so forth).

Gen I had Articuno, Moltres, Zapdos, Mew, and Mewtwo. 5 Legendaries.

Gen II had Lugia, Ho-oh, Entei, Suicune, Raikou, and Celebi. 6 Legendaries.

Gen III had Groudon, Kyogre, Rayquaza, Deoxys, Latios, Latias, Regice, Registeel, and Regirock. 9 Legendaries.

Gen IV had Dialga, Palkia, Darkrai, Giratina, Shaymin, Arceus, Heatran, Azelf, Mesprit, Uxie, and Registeel. 11 Legendaries.

Gen V had Victini, Zekrom, Reshiram, Cobalion, Virizion, Terrakion, Keldeo, Kyurem, Tornadus, Thundurus, Landorus, and Genesect. 12 Legendaries.

There will definitely be another beast style Legendary for the 3rd version, some trio related to one another, a small and cute Pokemon, a powerful humanoid Legendary, and probably another 2 or 3 random Legendaries that will either have new forms later on or exist solely for WiFi distribution/Movie features. That puts the number to 10-11.

As long as they aren't repaints like the original Kami trio or useless like Heatran and Shaymin, I will be fine.

Totally skipped over B/W 2, but I'm generally excited for this. Am I the only one that wants a new game with only G1 Pokemon? I mean, the number is so high now that it's getting difficult for me to keep up. Plus there's that nostalgia factor for me when it comes to those original 151.

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

I know a handful outside the original 151, so I would be.

The huge increase in legendary pokemon in the last few generations have been a huge turn-off from the series. They didn't even look that great. The last time I enjoyed them was probably Gen III

Gen IV had a ton of crappy Legendaries, but Gen V's were pretty good. The Tao trio continue the excellence of version mascots, the Kami trio are actually pretty good once you get past their looks, and Genesect is far more awesome than Deoxys. The Musketeer quartet are the most useful Elemental Trio set, especially Keldeo. And anybody who doesn't love Victini doesn't like awesome.

It also helps that these downloadable Legendaries (Victini, Keldeo, and Gene sect) start at Level 15, meaning one can actually raise one early.

There will probably be some kind of Pokemon Channel or My Pokemon Ranch-type game, but since we never got a Stadium-type game for Gen V, who knows.

Me too. Stopped after G/S (for GBC). I just couldn't get into anymore after that but (for some strange reason) I'm actually looking forward to this one. I'll probably end up with a party of only Gen I/II pokemon lol

I like to try out the new pokemon, so I have no problems with new pokemon, you don't have to memorize the names of all of them or anything like that.

IMO a legendary becomes less "legendary" when there are many of them to capture, when there was one or 2 legendary pokemon it felt really special when you finally captured it, however now its fairly mundane and just means you will have more longer battles to get through to get the legendary pokemon.

Actually, they changed the catch rates in Gen V so the Legendaries are far easier to catch. Caught Victini with a Great Ball (though to be fair, that was made much easier than normal) and only took 10 Ultra Balls to catch Kyurem.

We managed to get a Bug-type Legendary, a pure Flying-type Legendary, and an actual good Ice-type Legendary last Gen, so I am hoping for a Poison-type and a Ghost-type Legendary this time around. Also hoping for more unique type combinations like we got in$Unova.

I think the pinnacle of the series was Ruby & Sapphire for me, because I spent so much time playing those games, however this will be different for everyone and is basically based on nostalgia. Diamond and Pearl were really cool as well at the beginning BEFORE the GTS became filled with nothing but ridiculous trades.

You forgot Jirachi in Gen III. Registeel in Gen IV needs to be changed to Regigigas. Also forgot Cresselia, Manaphy, and Phione in Gen IV. Missing Meloetta in Gen V.

So, that actually puts Gen IV over Gen V when comparing number of legendary Pokemon. Gen IV really over did it with the whole "God" and "creation" concept.

Ah, sorry about that. I knew I was forgetting some. It's difficult to remember them all considering there are 649 Pokemon. ._. I didn't even remember Cresselia at all. I wonder how many they are going to add this Gen. I'm hoping they focus on adding in normal Pokemon over so many Legendaries. Legendaries, for the most part, are considered Uber in the meta-game (at least by Smogon rules).

They also need to change up the game and make special attackers worth using again. Yes, they have their use, but look at the top teams from last years' WC. Almost all of the teams consisted of physical attackers. Garchomp is still beyond broken, though he does have his counters, if few.

Hopefully they buff poison Pokemon as well. For example: http://pokemondb.net/type/poison

Grass, fighting, poison and bug are not effective against them; ground and psychic are super-effective against them. That is a problem. So many Pokemon can learn ground moves now and with these users being some of the strongest at the moment... Yeah, they can easily be countered. The only poison types seen in competitive play are Scizor, Forretress, and maybe Heracross, depending on what type of team you're going for.

Anyway, it would be cool if they revisit some of the old Pokemon and give them evolutions and/or baby forms. I want to be able to level a Dusparce and know that it can be useful. :l

Edit: I haven't seen any fan art. Have any links to your favorites? :o

I don't bother with the meta game anymore but the fact that legendaries are not able to be used in competitive play definitely makes them less legendary. I basically have no one to play with locally and online everyone just hacks the perfect Pokemon so putting effort into raising an elite Pokemon seems very pointless. There aren't any local tournaments or anything like that. So now a legendary is basically there for bragging rights, aka oh look I caught It, but now everyone catches them so IMO its just another Pokemon. i remember it was really special when you caught one of the 3 roaming dogs, aka suicune, raikou or entei but now it's just not special at all.

I was thinking another reason for so many legendaries was for new players and to help them get through the game but most legendaries are available after you get through the main game.

That's because people tend to save their Master Balls for them. And Cressalia is much easier to catch than Mesprit.

They added more roamers in Gen IV but kept it to just Tornadus/Thundurus in Gen V. Hopefully this Generation will be the first since Gen I not to have any roamers at all.

I also wonder if they will incorporate more Gen III Pokemon in the game since all the new DS systems have left the GBA behind. Kind of like how Colosseum had a ton of Johto Pokemon for Gen III.
