In Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver, during the Arceus in-game event, a cutscene happens, which shows many real life picture of things like cities. How would you feel if X and Y had real life pictures? Where do you think they would happen? What pictures would they be?

Ooh, I remember seeing this in HGSS and thinking how strange it was to see those images in a Pokemon game.

I can't really see them incorporating it into the game unless it's event related, I wasn't really a fan of it since it didn't have a Pokemon feel to it, not for me anyway.

That was strange... unless they're doing another Arceus creating an egg event I doubt we'll see real life images again.

Hm... having real-life pictures in Pokémon X and Pokémon Y might make an appearance as portraits or picture frames in someone's house. Knowing that the 3D visuals have improved in Pokémon X and Y, I'm sure you'll be able to get a closer up view of the pictures in someone's house instead of them being generic ones.

But other than that, I don't think very close-up pictures would appear unless it was in a special Pokémon distribution event of some kind.

Researching the NDS ROMs...

sure does feel like a brand new adventure!

I'm really looking forward to learning how to understand what the hex values mean and how to create programs using Microsoft Visual Studio!

Always focus on the present, best thing to do! Never look back into the past and never worry about anything bad of the future!

Please no. Not again. It just looked -odd-. I would not really like to see that all over again, especially not if it was compulsory to actually see the visuals. Keep Pokemon to Pokemon or else it'll freak me out (kind of like on the Simpsons on that one Halloween episode, daym it freaked me out for a while :x).

The problem with the way it was done in HG/SS was that it was just so random. You had all of these real life images appearing behind Arceus that came out of nowhere. I get that Arceus was born from an egg in a world where nothing existed and then later shaped the world, ─ which is in fact what all of the images were representing ─ but the use of real life images might have been pushing it a bit.

In terms of bringing it into X and Y, I guess I can say I'm indifferent on the subject. I don't mind either way, but should they bring it back, I'd like for it to not be as random or in your face as it was done for the Arceus event in HG/SS.

I heard that doesn't really happen but if so, Jesus Christ, that would scare me to death, it just wouldn't look normal IMO xD

No, no, no! That was a waste, like Trainer Schools in my opinion. I rather Google all sorts of beautiful scenery for 24 hours straight!

It did look kind of odd. :|

Maybe hintingly at the legendaries, but honestly? I don't think they'll find much room to implement real life events.

I'm with Shawn here. As interesting as it would be, where's the room for it? D: I'd like to have cutscenes and things of that nature, but the problem being is that they wouldn't really fit anywhere it would seem, at least anywhere that would make them look good.

Now, I admit that I haven't really seen the vid of the Arceus event, in which case my post may be a bit off, but when I think of cutscenes in Pokemon games, I think of your standard console cutscene kind-of, and it just doesn't seem nor feel right in the slightest. x_x;

The real life images were weird for me also. but if they do something like this again, they should diffenently show pictures of the other regions (they should have enough of them by now XP)

Ew real life images sounds blasphemous. I've never seen the arceus event, but it sounds terrible. However, I wouldn't be opposed if they showed real life cities but made in the same graphics as X/Y. Could be interesting! If they were to show real life pictures they'd be of... maybe Europe?? And I could see this happening if X/Y have anything to do with alternate dimensions but other than that.... I don't really know. :/
