Well we're getting 3D models now which means sprites are abolished

It kind of resembles final fantasy... Like the way the graphics are.... anyone else agree? or is it just me :s

alright just a quick note to the mods, this shouldn't be confused with the other pokedex thread. that one was asking about numbers, this one talks about the display. so yeah, no need to lock this.

in all the past gens, the pokedex was roughly the same each time. you would scroll up and down and see a pokemon's sprite, however, in X and Y the pokemon battles will be in 3D. do you think the in game pokedex will change to be like pokedex 3D? or do you think they'll make sprites or artwork for the pokedex like this one shown in the trailer?


discuss!

EDIT: huh? why was it moved here?

Oh my god, that would be perfect! I don't know why, but those old PokeDex bore me, the Pokedex 3D I bought in Eshop looks way better. So I hope they do an improvement on the pokedex.

When I first saw the announcement, I thought it was sorta cool how they did the 3D Graphics for the 3DS. But I have to wander, is it going to receive the same kind of reception as Pokemon Colllosium or Pokemon XD? I personally thought Pokemon XD was cool because of the fact it was in 3D. but what do you think, 3D Graphics good or bad?

It was long overdue for the main games for some time now if you ask me, especially since we're at a point where a handheld can really handle it.

As much as I was expecting Colosseum and XD style graphics for the first 3D adventure(even if it wasn't this gen), I'd actually prefer that stay to spin offs, at least for the time being. The cel-shading look they're using helps to keep that cartoon-y feel Pokemon has had/should have.


Tl;dr I love the 3D, just waiting to see the final product.

I actually thought X&Y looked like Colosseum and XD. Some cell-shading here and there doesn't change much for me.

Personally, I'm all for 3D graphics like in Colosseum and XD, and that's what I see here, at least when it comes to the overworld. My only gripe with Colosseum/XD that has anything to do with 3D graphics is with the battle animations: they take freaking forever! But from what I see in the trailer, they fixed that, so now I have absolutely no problem with the games being in 3D.

What real similarity is there aside from them being 3D and little bits of the battling animations we've seen?

I've watched the X & Y trailer countless times already and have played Colosseum and XD to death(they are among my favorite spin off series, only second to Mystery Dungeon) and I don't see where all of this similarity is coming from.

About the only thing that I'd say even comes somewhat close, from what we've been shown so far, is how the building in the desert area in the trailer reminds me of Realgam Tower. Everything else is completely different and we're still stuck with 4 directions it seems.

With the new short trailer showing off Sylveon in battle, I can safely say that I'm absolutely loving the new 3D battle graphics. It certainly gives the battles more depth. Seeing more of the older Pokémon being used, I don't even miss the pixel animation. Actually, I'm glad they've moved forward from them now.

I'm glad Game Freak have finally moved onto 3D graphics. Kind of feels like a 3DS Colosseum or XD, and I like that. Especially the battles!

Eh, as a spriter myself I can't help but feel a bit disappointed by the end of sprites. I mean, it was inevitable, but a bit sad, that the sprites would go sooner or later.

Unfortunately, though, the 3D doesn't even look adequate. The male protagonist looks like he's wearing a bucket on his head due to shoddy, low-res meshes, the anti-aliasing is just plain atrocious, and the frame rate is poor.

This is especially bad because the 3DS already proved with games such as Ocarina 3D that it can handle adequate 3D graphics.

That battle scene with Sylveon was amazing. And its not even final footage! With some work this game is gonna look and feel perfect, and I can only assume the OW is going to rock. Best part is that legendaries likely won't be small sprites, but huge lumbering beasts, awaiting your challenge, like it epically should be.

I presume the 3D will be present outside of graphics (I hope) so maybe we should have something similar to professor layton and the miracle mask where the 3D actually has a purpose other than graphics. What types of 3D use should there be in you opinion?

I saw a video for this game. The graphics have improved a longshot since Black 2 and White 2. I noticed the character's heights are bigger too. The 3D looks great aswell. Do you agree?

PS. What is the meaning of that Duskull on the post icons?!

Judging from the trailer we saw with Sylveon, it seems the graphics have already began to improve on that Battle Scene we saw compared the one in January. Although it may not be much difference, it's still an improvement which makes it more promising for the outcome by October.

Whilst I'll definitely try the game out once it's released, I can't say I'm a fan of the way they're approaching the graphics this time around. Hopefully it looks better when actually playing the game.

3D is the way to go! xD I think it's a really huge advancement. What you'd call 3D in B/W2 cannot be compared to this new 3D world. Sure, one might miss the classic 2D graphics, but who says one can't replay the previous generations? We can't stick to the old things forever; we have to move on to follow the ever growing technological advancements in this world. I'm certainly up for this new change!

The reason why the 3D slider is off is because we are not watching 3D footage, and that's a simple way for Nintendo to reinforce that fact.

Ever since the Sylveon video, I'm loving the battle graphics. The overworld graphics still don't look great to me, but I've been waiting for a 3D pokemon main installment for a while. I'm sure the overworld graphics will improve over the course of the next nine months, I mean like, the jump in battle graphics from the first trailer to the Sylveon one was pretty good.

I think the graphics of Pokemon games in general has taken a huge step, now moving up to 3D. I like the idea of 3D graphics and from the footage I've seen so far, it's been amazing, I'm particularly liking the new battle style,a close up of the Pokemon, improved sprites and all sorts of new surroundings including new plants, new sights. Also I saw the character crossing some sort of bridge in the preview, while swinging across vines and passing something that closely resembled the Eiffel Tower. I liked everything I've been seeing so far, I have absolutely no complaints honestly :3.

And yeah it'd be interesting to see what they'll do with the Pokedex in 3D, it sort of leaps out of you perhaps? I'm just really looking forward what they do with the graphics. :D

I'm personally excited for the jump from pixel art to a 3D environment. I think after all these years it makes sense, plus all the trailers that have been released honestly look fantastic for what the limitations of the 3DS are. I don't know if I'd play with the 3D activated, but the models for the Pokémon look great and the cities look awesome as well!

First of all, i think the 3D art looks good so far, but I'm sure its going to improve until the final release, so it will look even more awesome. I have a 3DS, and it just feels like they havent used all the 3Ds potential yet...just my feeling.
I think this progression is natural, and why not use 3D graphics on a 3D console?
The graphics have improved a lot from the old Blue and Red to Black and White, but i think this complete re-do of the environment and the battle scenes is very fitting, being a whole new Gen on a new console.
