That's one of the few times where swag is acceptable cause the word "Treecko" is in front of it. It's true, he has a ton of swag.


Lugia flies perfectly in the movies but can't keep himself in the air in the games? C'MON LUGIA GET IT TOGETHER.

One of my favorites from X and Y is Hitmontop.



Look at those moves.

And Volbeat



It's like he's saying YOU SAY SOMETHING TO ME HUH PUNK? COME AT ME BRO!

Okay I think I need sleep now.

I can't either like I am just legit amazed by this right now. I don't know if it's because it's 1 AM or Hitmontop is just that interesting or both.

I have to admit it's funny not seeing Hitmontop balancing on his head, but oh god that little dance is so fun to look at. Such a shame I never got to see one in-game, but yeah it's definitely one of the best animated models in X/Y.

And I agree on Altaria, it looks way better with its wings spread out:



How could you not love Altaria when it's like that? I know it's had wings open in 4th Gen as well but X/Y made it 10x better because it's now actually flapping them!

I actually like the BW sprites better than the models from X/Y. The colors are better, and they seem to have more details overall. The models just look weird mostly, although I do like the extra movements when they perform attacks.

For example:

Hitmontop confirmed for best model/dancer ever.

Also, I agree with JD. I like the vibrant colors that Pokemon have in Gen V. For example, shiny Totodile is a bright seagreen in gen IV and V, but in VI, he's really dull. My boyfriend says he thinks they look the same, but the older sprites look brighter than the new 3D model. I can't be arsed to find the sprites at the moment though.

For example:
Oh wow Alakazam makes its spoons float, that's really cool.

But I do love how the Pokemon now have extra movement when they are attacking, one of my faves has to be that awesome ninja pose that Greninja does when using a lot of special-based moves, and also Vivillon scattering powder when it attacks.

I also noticed the color of the powder Vivillon scatters in that animation changes based on its wing pattern, because I saw it with Viola's Meadow Vivillon once, and it was pink but when I used it with my River Vivillon, the powder was blue. I have a feeling most of the others will scatter powder that matches their wing pattern's dominant color (like green for Garden, purple for Elegant, red for Modern etc). I've only seen Meadow and River in-game (the latter being my native one) so someone should tell me what the color differences in that animation are for the rest of the wing patterns.

I have to agree that the colors for sprites in BW were so much brighter and colorful than the XY models. This is disappointing. But I love the animations for XY better. Like our favorite dancer Hitmontop.

Didnt you guys expect Hitmontop to be spinning on his head?? I know i did
I love how each Pokemon has a unique animation for special/physical attacks as well! Makes it all look better

The colors are different, yes, but that's mainly because of the difference on graphics and that XY aim to replicate the official art style much more. You can't copy the colors from a drawing onto a tiny sprite without it looking dull and muddled and you don't need to jack up the saturation for 3D models that are a lot larger and distinct on screen.
