My first reaction at seeing the new starters was to climb on my genwunner soapbox. I'll give the fire-type a chance. There's no way they can turn it into a Fire/Fighting.

I was actually just thinking with this announcement, "You know, there are a lot of stupid, useless Pokemon. What if Nintendo made them effectively extinct in future games?"

well this being in 3D is officially one step away from it finally being a console game... if only.....

pokemon will never officially stop being on a hand held.. but making a game for both systems would be great

All of those starters look good to me. I've never picked a grass starter my first play through, but that may change this time.

Maybe the 2nd set of attacks we see the starters using are their secondary typings, post evolution. So it looks like Froakie would be water/fighting, Fennekin would be fire/psychic or maybe fire/dark; I couldn't make out Chespin's second attack.

The Pokemon Rainbow report wasn't completely off. It was right about the 3D graphics.

I also saw older Pokemon in there so who knows what else is in store with this X/Y iteration.

I do miss being able to go back to old regions. Didn't they only do that in Gold/Silver? I would love a version where all the different regions are accessible, each only having its native pokemon catchable.

Truthfully at the moment all I care about if being able to trade right from the get go with black2/white 2

It really pisses me off this crap of having to beat the first 2 gyms or the entire game before I can get access to the trading with past generations.

well, they want to force you to play with whatever the current gen pokemon are, with a small sprinkle of older pokemon.

Exactly. The game would be too easy if you bred Pokemon with optimal stats and movesets in a previous game and started a new one with them out of the gate.

I like the idea of not even including older Pokemon in the game and only having them available by trade. It pisses me off when I'm going through trying to complete a new region's Pokedex and encounter nothing but ****ing old Pokemon.

Having psychic, dark, and fighting as secondary types to the starters would help balance them out inbetween eachother. It wouldn't be a case of having the grass starter, and being at a disadvantage if your friend had the fire starter. Even though the grass looks earthy to me, I'd be happy with - fire/psychic, grass/dark, water/fighting. I have a feeling the new fire starter is going to reak havoc on Ninetails popularity though, given the similarities.

I have an honest question, and this is coming from someone who grew up when Red/Blue/Yellow first came out, and got into Gold/Silver/Crysta, but do people still go around looking for friends to trade Pokemon with to catch them all? I kinda lost track of the games once they moved to the GBA and DS, but I remember the major appeal of the Game Boy games were that you had to go to your friends to fight or trade, and it was this major social aspect when you would link up your handheld together. I don't know much about the online aspects of the DS and 3DS, but has that been lost?

I recently bought HeartGold and LeafGreen, and also rented Black a while ago, but in each of the games, I was not as concerned with collecting as many Pokemon as possible as I was with just playing through the story and getting to the last battles. Trading is just not something I care about anymore, even though that was the hook that forced them to create two separate yet similar games with each generation.

It's funny because the 3D stuff looks like it fits the mold of the normal handheld gameplay in terms of movement, but visually looks better in the sense that you feel closer to your character and can see the world from their view, as opposed to a more bird's eye kind of view. But the battle animations look straight out of Pokemon Stadium.

I think if they're willing to go this far, a console version should not be too far off. Although, like I said above, the main thing that makes it a Pokemon game is how you can trade and connect with others.

Love the looks of the new starters (first time since Gen III) and legendaries. The deer one is actually quite beautiful to look at. As for who I would choose, most likely Pokemon X with Chespin as my starter (I would like to know what it is though).

As for fan speculation, fandom predicts Fennekin's (Mozilla) line will be based on a Kyubi and will be Fire/Psychic, Froakie's (Hypnotoad) line will be based on thieves and will be Water/Dark or Water/Fighting and Chespin's (Pipsqueak) line will be pretty cool and possibly be secretly reptilian and be Grass/Dark.

Also we may be getting Trainer Customizations like Pokemon Battle Revolution with what I hope to be the ability to purchase new clothes and style from the Department Store and through DLCs.

I would love if the next gens starters have at least one that has a dragon element. I may actually skip on this generation like I did with Ruby and Sapphire. It doesn't really appeal to me.

ok thats fair enough, but to stop any connection with the previous games till the new one is complete is daft when that was one of the main features of the first 2 generations.

i never got into ev training or egg moves breading, truthfully all i cared about was just keeping my core team alive, that i've had from yellow. i will admit i dont mind waiting till i have a pokedex or beat a gym but the idea of having till wait this i have completed the entire game is moronic

hell i only got black when my friend finished white and i could pinch his to get my starters across. same with black 2.


also on an unrelated note after you get the 7 sages and beat the champ is there really anything major left to do in black.

Could it be considered a reboot if they made a new Pokemon game with no connection to the past games?
