Yes, however I'm a bit afraid they'll just repeat what was said at the Nintendo Direct seeing how close the magazine's new issue is to the announcement of X & Y.

Indeed, that is a worry, but they might have some exclusive content and/or stories on development, as they do that sometimes.

For once, I found a Pokemon generation that I'm not ready for. I'm hoping that as more Pokemon are revealed, I'll feel better about it. I can't say the same for gen V, since I avoided spoilers, but doing that on a Pokemon forum is hard so I won't do it this time. Seems like yesterday I just discovered Petilil though. :/ Time flies.

Anyway, I'm not really excited about these games yet. I think the starters, except for Fennekin, are uggggggg-LY. But the legendary mascots look amazing actually. So eh. But the way the game looks is deterring me away from it. I'm not ready for chaaaaaaange :( I'm content with the moving 2D sprites I'm not ready for 3D models. sob sob sob

I'm the exact opposite really. I feel that Pokémon as a franchise either needs to completely stick to its original formula or change it with a fresh approach completely. This is one of the main reasons that I disliked the 5th generation games as they tried to change the game but ended up with it being stuck in-between which led to, in my opinion, a terrible end product. With X/Y I feel that they're finally jumping the gun and bringing the franchise changing/defining product that it needs.

Graphically it's probably been a leap and a bound, but we seriously don't know the extent of what they are changing. Besides that it still looks like the field system is exactly the same with its Up/Down/Left/Right movement.

When I saw the announcement on top of the forums, I thought it was April 1st all of a sudden xD But then I came to my senses and realized that wasn't it. And after having watched the announcement video, I have a few things to remark on.

Eh, they FINALLY brought decent animation to the main pokémon series. For crying out loud, I've been having beautiful 3D games on my phone for a long time now. But Pokémon seems kind of like the Apple of the gaming world nowadays; they now and then present something and say it's BRAND NEW AND BREATHTAKING but actually it's been by others already. Hehe.

The starters don't really excite me; I've seen fakemon starters looking better than them. I think I liked the Gen V starters more when I first saw them.

The legendaries looked really cool though, especially the X pokémon. I really hope their names aren't strained and weird. palkia! dialga! durr!

I wonder how many new pokémon they will introduce and if they are going to do like with Unova and keep them apart from the old species. Probably not though, since we saw a wild pikachu and the starters fighting Pansear and such. Yeah.

I didn't like the way Unova was completely isolated with only Unova Pokémon (excluding B2/W2 I believe). I think that the best way is to probably have about 100 new Pokémon and a nice mixture of the other 5 generations.

@ CoroCoro stuff: I don't think they'll repeat stuff. We might get maybe one or two new Pokemon, or just extra info, but after the big lead up to it EVERYWHERE online and on the actual advertisements on TV, I don't think they'd just announce it there without giving us anything tbh.

I also don't feel ready for this Gen.
I like the starters. Especially Froakie (why do they hate Froakie ;w
The good thing about this is the international release at around the same time.

I don't have a 3DS yet though, still with my Black DSi D:
Must save till then, I guess. I hope they release a 3DS - Pokemon X/Y bundle xD

Worth pointing out that it seems that Nintendo has a new strategy when it comes to promoting new stuff. It's all about Nintendo Direct now. Granted, they still leave some fodder for the magazines, but the announcements? Nintendo Direct. Nintendo Direct.

I really like this strategy.

I'm really hoping this too - they usually don't do this for the dual set of the main games, and only leave it for the third game of the set (liiiike Pokemon Z in this case?) But yeah, as much as I love to try out these new pokemon, I do also wanna see some of the older pokemon for nostalgic purposes (like I'm still on board of using a Nidoran or something!)

They need to keep using it and keep pushing it for the system to become a success though. However, it is exciting!

Alright, I, for one, am angry as heck. First of all, they literally JUST released the sequels for the gen V games. So they don't even want to give them some time to develop? SOME? And they don't even want to make Gen 3 remakes? EVERYONE wants Gen 3 remakes. Most everyone. And for the 3DS? Do they just want to make more money? I can't afford a 3DS and I'm not planning to afford a 3DS anytime soon, let alone buy it. Although it IS true that the gen V PMD games are for the 3DS too, but... What the hell? Can't they just pick a system and develop it? They were on a good path with the DS, I don't know what the hell happened all of the sudden.

Although I admit the graphics are really top-notch (what less would you expect on a freaking 3DS), they can't really call it fully developed 3D models unless they're from all angles like in, for instance, Poképark. Also, nothing of it looks like a Pokémon game. Just from the few screenshots I've seen.

The starters... ugh. Chespin looks like someone bathed a Pachirisu in a Sudowoodo that just came out of a blender. Fennekin is an anorexic Eevee with overgrown ear-hair. Froakie... I'm not even going to go there. This thing looks pretty badass though:
Spoiler:

It's a Sawsbuckviriziosuicunethingamajig, but it looks damn epic.

Definitely Princess Mononoke inspired, no wonder it looks epic.



Still though I like the legendaries ten times better than the gen V ones.

In the trailer there was a mixture of multi regional Pokemon, Dratini, Kirlia, Weaville, Pansear etc so I'm sure they will mix it up slightly, unless they were just for a purpose of battle footage.

Don't mind me getting upset over change, of course haha. It's my reaction to anything that's changed too much for my liking (do you know how long it took me to break down and buy a DS?), but I'll eventually be okay. I wasn't even online during the reveal. :( I should have stayed up! Waking up to a new forum and games wasn't good for me, lol.

Anyway, I do hope they have a mix of older Pokemon in with these games, like Manipulation said. And I hope they don't pull a DP on us and exclude a TON of new Pokemon and leave them for post-game. That would be mean. I like what they did with B2W2, by having a ton of Pokemon from each generation mixed in with almost all gen V stuff. And even then, the only gen V stuff that you couldn't get prior to post-game was just...couple of legendaries? So yeah, they had their regional dex nailed in B2W2 I think, and I hope the same will go for X and Y.

...X and Y tee hee.

Whoever owns this domain is probably gonna get a huge pay cheque from Nintendo.

Is it only me who thinks Froakie, or at least it's evolutions, are going to be Water/Electric? I'm pretty sure that move it uses against a Patrat in the announcement video is an electric type move.

I'd also reeeaaally be happy if they only introduced, say, 60 to 70 new Pokémon (not counting any possible evolutions or pre-evolutions).

Also, on the topic of (pre)evolutions, I kind of would like to see some Gen 4 and 5 (pre)evolutions. Something for Throh/Sawk would be cool, same with maybe Basculin and a pre-evolution of Cryoganol could be cool.

I think it was done before R/S remakes purely because a, they wanted generation V to be isolated to Unova only, which is kinda awesome or alternatively to further develop R/S before releasing them. :3

What I've seen of the legendaries so far is amazing. I really didn't expect this to be the news I woke up to but it's something I've been wanting for a while now. My only issue is that it feels like it's too much of a change and too soon, given that Black 2 and White 2 will only have been out for a year in the US when these games come out.

Nintendo has moved on to the 3DS, so if anyone is surprised over that move, then...you really shouldn't be.

As for those legendaries, I'm quite impressed. And I hope to God they aren't Dragon types ugh. But they look unique compared to the last two generations and I hope any other legendaries that come around this gen are just are awesome looking. And I love how the mascots don't look a thing like each other. Most mascots seem to be connected in some way, bar Lugia and Ho-Oh (unless I'm forgetting something?), and these guys don't seem to be. I kind of hope they're not. The idea of the mascot Pokemon being in relation to one another is getting to be a tired idea imo, so it'd be great if they were unrelated. But that might be just me.

The DS/DS Lite/DSi are all dying systems now. The 3DS has been out for roughly two years I believe, and until now, GameFreak had yet to announce a main title Pokémon game for the 3DS. And I believe Nintendo wasn't very pleased with GameFreak when they had released B2/W2 for the DS systems either. GameFreak was bound to release a new generation for the 3DS at some point, and announcing one for 2014 is really pushing it when the 3DS would be going on almost 3 years.

At the start of New Years, Pokémon announced that they were taking on new leaps and bounds and expanding the world of Pokémon this year. In order to do that, and on the 3DS system, things were bound to change. However, as different as it looks, the mechanics itself - such as the battling system - seems to operate the same other than its new look.

As far as R/S remakes, I've been eagerly anticipating a remake of the Hoenn region ever since HG/SS was announced, but just because it wasn't released during the 5th Gen, doesn't mean it won't happen. It may just happen during this new generation of Pokémon, and by the look of the graphics on Pokémon X and Y, I couldn't be more pleased about that.

The mascot for Pokémon X does look pretty cool doesn't it? I like that one a lot. I can't change your mind on the starters though. We all have our own opinions about a Pokémon's design. I for one actually really like all three starters this generation. I can't say the same about Gen V.
