Wow, I'm amazed. This is a definite buy now, no doubt. The Pokemon are ... actually alive. Makes me wonder what more future games will hold now.

I know! These are amazing! I love how they move when they're not just using an attack! XD I can't wait!

Haha ! Yeah, I know. It's going to be an amazing game, just because of this and the new camera movements too ~

Well...mechanically, everything's the same as far was we know, it's all aesthetic, so the thread title is a bit of a misnomer. XD

Either way, I can't express how awesome this looks enough...very impressive stylistically speaking. :P

I really don't like the idea of having the sprites move in battle. Constant motion is going to get really annoying, hopefully there will be an option to shut it off.

You can probably turn it off via options menu ...

xD, well, I named it new 'Battle System' because of the also moving camera's and update moveset, and I believe CoroCoro and Pokemon Sunday also commented on new details and such for the battle. Plus, I think It translated into; "New Battle System Emerges !!" So, that's basically how I got the title.

I don't know about it, it would take time getting use to it for me. Everytime I play a home console game I have to get use to constantly moving sprites.

If you ask me I'd say it's the same besides the sprites moving, and the screen moving, it's not like they put in new mechanics or anything to actually change how you attack, it's pretty much the same imo.

well after watching the first vid when you use aurora sphere(i think) it goes faster than what it normally does now

It's much faster, which is great. The one irk I had with Gen IV was how slow it was. The movement is pretty cool, although some of it looks a bit...mechanical, y'know? The one with the otter thing doesn't help its image as a clown. Entei's is pretty good, but Raikou's looks like a horse ride at a carnival, buckling up and down.

I do hope there's a way to turn it off. "Battle system - STATIC <-> DYNAMIC" or something similar in the options menu.

It would be pretty cool and awsome, if they added a "Dodge" option that last for 1-3 seconds while the opponet is attacking. But I like the new battle system.

Those videos are only showing the graphical changes in battle, nothing really to call it a new battle system. If I'm not mistaking they did announce minor changes are to come, but so far nothing has been released.

The battle system hasn't changed as far as we know. The battle system is the game's mechanics, not the sprites that are used in the battles.

The Pokemon attacks seem to be faster! =D That's a huge improvement in my opinion. The moving sprites don't really matter to me, but it'll be interesting to see what it'll be like battling with active sprites.

While I love the new moving system, and the faster speed, it all looks kind of... creepy.I'm sure I'll get over it eventually.

When companies change something they want you to accept it as better. If they give you the option of going back to the old way they will have wasted time and money on changing it in the first place.

Game Freak did not let you turn the following pokemon off. Youtube did not let you change the channel or video page back. Facebook didn't let you go back to the original layouts.

So when they make something different you have to Spheal with it.
