I would love another pair of Gym leaders, its been a long time now since Tate and Liza, but I think a triple leader battle is more likely.

I understand that, but I don't see how they look like digimon at all - since there's not a clear cut on how one can describe a pokemon and a digimon. In my opinion, they're pretty unique; I can't wait to see more.

Anyway, yeah, Tate and Liza were pretty tough to beat back in the day, so I'd love to see more tag team gyms like that. Maybe an option for the game to make everything purely double battles? Unlikely as that seem, it'd be a nice concept.

As for royalty, I can see that royalty can be incorporated with the gym leaders and the elite four. Like say, the King's royal court could make up the gym leaders, and maybe the official family of the King could be the Elite Four... as for the King himself, I'm not sure if he'd be the champion, but the guy who's hosting the actual pokemon league, like in medieval times where the king usually hosts knight joust tournaments. Maybe the Champion can be the official "black knight"!

It took me quite a while to grasp all this(forgive me, as I'm quite tired lmao from waking up just now), but yeah, I love the royalty idea! It's a nice twist for something in the E4, at least it shakes up the monotony of what we've had the past five generations or so. That being said though, keep in mind that royalty consists of a lot of branches, much more so than your standard King/Queen/Prince/Princess and whatnot, yeah? We might have to fight some new people(why does Court Jester come to mind?), since royalty is divided into several ranks, yeah? :3

...I hope that didn't sound confusing. @_@

Fennekin is probably the only one that looks like a Digimon thus far, imo. If anything looked Digimon-like it was a few of B/W's Pokemon but the others don't really look Digimon-ish. Even so it's hard to classify what looks Pokemon/Digimon, anyways.

I kind of dislike it when people mention that the Pokemon are turning into Digimon or something like that. Sure, we have our opinons on Pokemon designs, but what always bugs me is that, I always ask the question to myself "whats separates the line between Pokemon design and Digimon?"

Maybe that was a poorly-worded question. I'll try it again differently.

Why do we seem to that, each and every generation, Pokemon designs are getting more digimon-ish? I personally didn't know there was a standard for what Pokemon could look like versus what Digimon could look like, personally. .__.;

Well, I just saw Ninfeon yesterday and want to write something about it. Should I post it here or at the new pokemon speculation thread?

Well Digimon Tamagochi came out on 1995, and the Pokemon Video Games came out around 1996. Even so, anime and games all around somehow relates to one another. That's just like saying Digimon copied Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh! copied Digimon, it's not true.

I just don't see the resemblance.

There's an evolution/pre-evolution speculation thread for that~! You can also speculate here, that'd be fine. :3

This. :( I don't see anything digimon-ish about these new Pokemon at all...

I think the designs in Generation VI are much more nicer than what I've seen in Generation V, not as rushed. And here's the thing, those anime always come up with something that some other company may have... but they never know that it's the same. Just the same ideas... when it comes to creating monsters. ;)

Huge chunk of out-of-topic. You can read it if you want
Spoiler:
It's very to said that Digimon copied Pokemon or anything like. The similarities between is only because they have Mons and their franchise ended with -mon too. But toher than that, Pokemon and Digimon are really different each other. First, their mons concept are really differs from each ohter. While Pokemon and Digimon also take inspiration from many thing, Pokemon usually design their Mons around the object while Digimon usually turn to object to fit with their world.That is why we can find 5 Element Chinese Constellation. Second, Digimon and Pokemon world were very different. Also last, in Digimon, the plot and the characters who interact with Digimons usually are kids, while in Pokemon , we can see adults interact with Pokemon as frequent as the kid did. Buuuut, the irony is, while Digimon feels more kiddies like, they manage to deconstruct their own Mons series with Digimon Tamers while Pokemon anime it just....never changes despite adults already interact with Mons from the very first series.


Just, what the....I'm writing about now >__>
here Cuddly picture of Pikachu and Terriermon for everyone, since Digimon and Pokemon are in one sentece


And also, thanks for the direction Miss Doronjo and Twilight Sky

Yeah so far in comparison I'm preferring the designs of the Gen VI Pokemon to the Gen V Pokemon, I'm especially liking the new Eeveelution too.

Oh, and there's a Nintendo 3DS Direct tomorrow, I'm not sure whether they'll involve Pokemon X and Y but if they do, it will probably just cover what we found out this week.

No, no, I understand what your saying, and I pretty much agree! Digimon and Pokemon are alike in some ways, but totally different altogether.

I myself find myself fond with this generations new designs, and would love to see more soon. In comparison to Gen V? Well, that's a little tough to say - I'd say I like them equally!

I'm not sure if X&Y will be involved, but, that will be quite interesting if they do! Maybe we'll see more screen shots, and a new trailer? But most likely, yeah, maybe cover what we know so far.

I kind of don't think we'll get anything new, other than maybe just one Pokemon...? Or maybe just some vision, I think they'd rather just save it all for a global reveal set to be about Pokemon idk.

Even so I'll be lagging still so I won't get to see it lmao. :(

It starts at 6:00am (PST) / 9:00am (EST).

Or.. as I read it here: http://www.nintendo.com/nintendo-direct/

I'm really betting on it showing some new gameplay. =(

I think we'll get quite a bit! Or at least, more than what we have now. Part of me says that(and it's quite likely) we'll get quite a bit of gameplay footage, but that's the biggest thing we're probably going to get out of it so far. It's hard to say that, aside from footage, what else we're going to get.

....Maybe new Pokemon, but even that seems unlikely. u_u

yay 13,000 posts!

Nah, Pokemon XY won't show up, I mean if it were to, it would have been in CoroCoro as well. But hey, if it does show up I'll be pleasantly surprised. I want me some info damn it!

Someone check the coding like people did last time to see if Pokemon appears (I would but I'm not on a computer right now).

Well Corocoro tends to finish writing it's issue some time before printing it so it's possible Nintendo has something new to tell us which GF or they didn't tell the magazine.

Well like I said, I don't think it's really anymore than just a few gameplay videos and that's really it. I kind of doubt that they would pull some sort of huge reveal this early on, but that's just me. XD

I think its about high-time we at least knew what region we're playing in. I hope Nintendo at least reveals that much. @_@

I checked, Pokemon didn't appear :( On the plus side we can definitely be hopeful of what it could provide (and be ready to be let down just in case too!)

Well that sucks. u_u Then again, it isn't totally surprising. Maybe what we have is all we're going to have for this month, and that we have to wait for next month for some news. /shrugs. That's the absolute worst case scenario, so yeah.

Bleh, the elemental monkeys were like pseudo-starters and I always felt cheap picking one of them up to help me against the first Gym. I seriously hope Gen VI stops handholding us like Gen V did.
Speaking of which, do you think Pansear and Chimchar could be related? Although I don't know how that would work out if GameFreak made Pansage, Pansear, and Panpour share a pre-evolution…

Quote originally posted by Zupplu:
Hm, It makes me wonder why they didn't have the option before the game in BW2 in the first place. Yes, I'd love for the rivals to have tougher Pokemon and strategies. Maybe they could use revives like us for an improved strategies, as well has laying entry hazards and using combos like wish and protect.
I hate 'Protect' combos! Don't let it happen, 'cause they usually annoy the crud out of me and are premonitions of my ultimate doom in most battles!

I like 'Phanteon' best; it sounds cool!

Quote originally posted by sρεcтяα:
It's improbable, but I'd like to see a more strategic use of weather, in terms of field alteration, or even just aesthetics. Say, using Rain Dance immediately after Sandstorm to turn the field to mud, which would benefit Water and Ground types and slow everything else down. Or using Sunny Day after Rain Dance to create a rainbow. It'd just be nice if there was actually a sign on the battlefield that there had actually BEEN a weather anomaly, rather than just the same standard background for that area.

Taking that one step further in terms of aesthetics, I'd quite like to see some damage done to the surrounding area to reflect attacks, as well. Say something uses Flamethrower and misses...have it blast a nearby tree. Something uses Explosion and leaves a giant hole in the ground. It'd just be entertaining to see, and make battles more involving.
And GameFreak could also take a leaf from the book of my younger brother, Henderson, and do the same thing with…wait for itPokémon following you. Imagine mobs of Diglett destroying a Pokémon Center's floor!

Quote originally posted by swiftgallade46:
Not sue if this has been said before. Does anyone think this generation will have the theme of genetics? I mean, look at the facts: the small rainbo DNA strip that appears on the Japanese game logos, Masuda's emphasis on evolution in his recent blog, the X and Y chromosomes, Xerneas is blue like the male symbol and Yveltal is Red like the female. (though, by no stretch does it look feminine and I know that every version mascot up to this point has had some relation to the colors red and blue)I hope that also means there will be many (pre)evolutions of old Pokemon since that is usually my favorite part of the new generations.
Speaking of pre-evos, I want to know the evolutionary origins of all of the starters and mascots along with their relationships to other Pokémon (see Chimchar-'elemental monkey' link idea.) I also want to see other similar Pokémon linked together. The legendary Pokémon probably wouldn't participate in this evolution bonanza, though (sign…)

Quote originally posted by swiftgallade46:
Exactly. Actually, my friend and I had an argument about weather it would be about genetics or dimensions, but ( from a marketing standpoint) it would probably benefit Game Freak to just do both. also it's kind of hard to imagine what the third legendary or game(s) would represent in the case of genetics since there are only X&Y chromosomes...
Actually, only mammals use the X/Y sex-determination system; birds use the Z/W one.

And that why I say they should name possible sequels W and Z if they take that route plus W can stand for the fourth dimension too so there's that.

Anyways back to these games, I wonder if this generation will introduce gender differences for older mons as Gen V only gave two of it's new mon differences.
