Location: Preparing for trouble and making it double.
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?
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.

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'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;
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. :/
