I don't have a problem with that! I'm just hoping it isn't a disappointment because, as I believe I'm stated before, Generation 5 was and if it becomes a lot like it then I won't be very happy.

Well the good thing about keeping one's expectations low is that the game will likely look better do to said expectations unless of course it meets those low expectations...
Maybe those of us with higher should lower them...I know I had high ones for Gen V...and it didn't turn out that well for me.

One Expectation and it's not for the game.
It's for the game that accompanies it in the Generation (ie. something like Firered and Leafgreen or Heartgold and Soulsilver) maybe.... Hoenn Remakes? also a third game like pokemon z or something (something like platinum and emerald)

Another expectation not for the game itself.
the ability to buy use a cord given along with the game(in reality) that connects the original gameboy /gameboy colour games to the computer and transfer pokemon to lets say an official online service that converts it to gen6 files and is transfered to the gen6 games via pokemon global link. And you use a special ball (Old Ball, Timemachine ball, sorry we didn't create a link between Gen2 and 3 ball?) to catch it.

Oh and another one give kangakhan a preevolution and a male version. then give both a mega evolution. I heard they gave kangakhan a mega evolution with it's baby out of its pouch

I have the expectation that this generation would be better than Gen 5. I don't give a **** how, I just hope that it's going to be. Just give me something fun to do after I beat the Elite Four, or maybe some sidequests here and there and I'll be a happy camper.

I'm expecting to see a lot of old Pokémon getting an evolution, especially from the third gen. I hope to see characters from previous games make a few appearances here and there, and I also hope that they keep the number of legendaries to a minimum. They've introduced a ridiculous amount of legendary Pokémon in generation five, and to me, it didn't feel like we needed any more legendaries after that. xD

Of course I do! With the game being, how big was it? somewhere around 2 gigs?
and with 212 songs, I expect the region to be absolutely huge, or to have some sort of travel between regions. At least a portion of one.

Also, I heard somewhere that you can choose what battle music goes to your battle in PvP. I'm really, REALLY hoping that I can chose non pokemon x/y music from my SD card.

Expectations for generation 6?

Well, I'm actually just hoping it'll have the same compatibility with the previous generation that generation 5 had with 4.

But I'm really hoping that after X and Y, we get our Ruby/Sapphire remakes. I mean, we're 2 consoles ahead of that now (gba, DS, 3DS, like how Red/Blue were remade 2 consoles later, same with Gold/Silver) so we're about due, right?

See, I hope we don't actually get any backwards compatibility. Sure it would be nice to push forward our old pokemon, but that also means all the hacked and illegitimate pokemon will be pushed forwards too.

Also, no backwards compatibility means more likelihood of Gen III remakes, and i'm all for that!

All the game would need to do is check the Pokémon and see if its stats, personality values, ability, moves, obtained locations etc actually match what would be normal for a Pokémon of that species.

But maybe you're right. Maybe we do need a fresh start. So many changes are already in progress for the new games that it wouldn't be too surprising that there would be incompatibilities. And that would give more reason to remake Hoenn afterwards, yes.

I just hope 6 isn't the last of the generations to ever appear.

Honestly, I'm expecting for there to be no more evolutions. Instead, they'll just add a bunch of megas. I also highly doubt the inclusion of backwards compatability.

Mawile is based off of a mythical Japanese fairy-like creature so it's a fine fairy type. And some of you are saying some stuff about the rivals that can be REALLY offensive to other people and besides, for Tierno, it's a nice change we don't get the typical "hot and thin" characters. We need diversity too you know! *Icecold* and elgyem are being a bit too harsh IMO.

I don't have many expectations only two of them.

Sky battles are all cool and all but now that I find out that the game is based on Norse Mythology as in the Tree of Life it'll be only logical for me to expect with great deal that there must be free roam in the Sky otherwise Gamefreak made a dumb move. If the region isn't located on a big fancy penguin rainbow tree in the middle of shooting wats of nowhere where space cats are floating around then I could understand. Ah, whatever I could always wait for the next Pokémon Ranger game if i want it so badly.

Next one is the weather system. It has been dull for many generations now, I'd expect the weather system to be more advanced by now. Day/Night/Rain isn't going to cut it for me and the season changes aren't really an excuse either. What I'm expecting are natural disasters, okay this is a bit over the top but something like lightning strikes hitting the fan and you **** bricks when that happens could be awesome with Pokémons involved who possess that kind of power some unknown Boss lightning Pokémon who uses Lightning as second nature perhaps? /Random thought.
Tornados or even vulcano erruptions could be awesome to see as well. Other then that random weather changes all over the maps other then Rain is what I expect the most. Fog, Hail, Wind Blows, Snow or even mixes. You know, that kind of stuff. But that should also effect the maps where normally the Pokémons are located; one of these element could change the Pokémon on the currently on the map to different one. That was the case with Day and Night times in the 2nd generation so I'd expect them to change it a little to this sorta likin', um.. Realistic weather, yeah that's the right sentence i'm looking for.

Oh, Ruri (Yancy) is my waifu, Gamefreak better bring her back......Or else.

This is true, but these Formes will likely increase the pokes strength in some way shape or form.

I'm sorry, I wasn't trying to make a judgement about you as a person. I was just suggesting you lighten up a bit in regards to this specific instance. It seems like you are simply more willing to see something in relation to X&Y as negative, rather than positive.

There are so many awesome new features coming! PSS, Super Training, Pokemon-Amie, new trading mechanics (trade for Pokemon you haven't seen before), all of the awesome new Pokemon that have been announced, Social network integration (I, for one, am excited to take cute pictures with Photo Spots and share them on Facebook!), Sky Battles, Hordes, Fairy-type, and a bunch of other stuff I've already forgotten. Never mind how awesome the games look!

My expectations have been completely blown out of the water already! Looking at what Gamefreak has been doing for the past few generations, they didn't really change much between R/S/E - to - B/W in terms of the game's mechanics. Sure there were a bunch of new battle styles, online trading, etc... But X & Y look like they are going to bring a HUGE update to the series!

There are other forms that increase a Pokemon's strength is some way, shape or form.

Giratina has a Stat shift, redistributing his stats and making him stronger in some areas.
Shaymin has a Stat shift, redistributing his stats and making him stronger in some areas.
Deoxys has 3 stat shifts, redistributing his stats and making him stronger in some areas depending on his form.
Rotom gain additional stats.
Kyurem gains additional stats.
Arceus (while not officially a form change) increases the power of his attacks per plate.
Castform has a boost with his form changes adding STAB to some attacks and boosting his signature attack.
Wormadam all have different stats depending on form when they evolve into their current form.
Cherrim gains a boost when it changes form.
The Genie trio all have stat redistribution making them stronger in newer areas than before.

Other than Rotom and Kyurem, they all don't change in original strength as their base stats don't change, but thanks to the stat changes involved or indirect boosts due to required items and abilities they are made stronger while in their new forms.

Closest relation to the Mega Stone is Giratina, a hold Item that is required for the form change and thanks to the hold Item the Pokemon specific to it gains a boost. Its no different than any form change before in terms of how it effects the dynamics of a Pokemon. Only differences is in what we call it and the amount of different Pokemon that share the same ability.


Unless a form change is completely aesthetic like Unown, Keldeo, Shellos, Basculin, Pichu, Spinda, Deerling, and Sawsbuck, they have some kind of effect on the Pokemon's battle performance. (though most of these are variants and not special forms. Arceus and Genesect are both considered Variant forms though since their items boost their signature attacks and since Arceus gets more bonuses from his plates I'll include them as traditional form changes for this.)

I left off a few...didn't really see a point in naming every single pokemon for this.

I expect Megas to be like Rotom's formes in increase of stats.

Also I expect there to be more Fairy type retcons, hopefully we'll get the full list of the retcon this month.

I expected this to be the best generation so far, and I think it's safe to say I'm right
I don't know I think their is a big difference between form changes and mega evolutions.
I'm not sure but it seems that each pokemon form either keeps that stats the same or redistribute them ( for instance taking away from attack to give to special attack) but it seems mega evolutions will just increase the pokemons base stats just like a normal evolution

Also there seems to be some bonding requirements in order to use the evolutions so this is something similar to how enough exp will allow a pokemon to evolve. Now with form changes besides maybe a move and the obiviouse item or object their are no other requirements to change forms

I think we should respect Game Freak and call them what they are megaevolution .
I think calling them form changes is the same as calling form changes evolutions

A Dark-type Gym. I think they've been hesitant to have one because then all the types would have gyms and there wouldn't be any more sense of "un-fulfillment" left in terms of Pokémon gyms. However, now since we have Fairy, we can let Fairy be the type without a Gym for a while and allow Dark to finally get one.

At the beginning I had a lot of wishlists for what I would have or have not wanted to be in the games. Overtime, however, I just became less focused on what I wanted and more focused on what was already there and the possibilities that could come from them. Turns out, there were a lot of surprises and a lot of things added that I didn't even know I wanted until it happened. So, I'm just going with the flow and taking what GameFreak gives, because so far everything about this generation has been pretty exciting.

Wouldn't mind finally getting that Dark-type gym though!
