D: dude, they look the same!



Cars?! Sure, there was a moving truck in R/S/E but it was out-of-place 0.0

They're killing the Pokemon spirit with high tech' stuff D:

It just doesn't have the same "feel" anymore. Really. It's way too high tech' now.

I like this change. Save for the NPCs, but then again, the game is still under development. Plus, it's a new region. Some parts of the world are more developed than others. Like La Rousse City of the anime.

Well, things evolve. Personally, I can't wait to play through this. If it feels way too different, then I still have Generations 1-4 to fall back on, but considering that I only really care about story and the battling system, I probably won't care that much when I play it.

(The NPCs always looked the same anyway, so that won't bother me at all.)

Well, the world is evolving all the time, so well, I dont mind the change, plus, if they have the technology to fit a massive Lugia into a tiny capsule, I'm sure they must have the technology to make cars

well, they did say they wanted to make it look like you weren't playing a Pokemon game, besides, it hasn't lost it's feel at all, it's feel has been upgraded.

You can't judge the feel of a game until you sit down and play it yourself. Screenshots can be deceptive. The true feel of a game isn't just how it looks at one given moment, it's how it moves, reacts, plays.

All that aside, I'm too worried about how stupid the starter Pokemon look to be worried about the towns.

My chapter fics:
Kanto: The Disputed Frontier - 14 chapters, indefinite hiatus. Gary Stu's Unpredictable Adventure - 8 chapters, completed. Digimon Campaign - 7 chapters, ongoing

One-shots:
There's Always Tomorrow (SWC 2009), A Matter of Stubbornness (SWC 2010), Left by the Roadside
(SWC 2011 1st place),
Giovanni Destroys the World and Everything in It (2012), By What Right? (SWC 2013 1st place), Back in the Day (SWC 2014 1st place)

I agree that Pokemon games definately feel different now than before, lately I've been playing original red version and having a blast, but that shouldn't take away from enjoying all the newer pokemon games, I'm also playing through Pearl right now (First time playing through) and yeah at times they seem worlds apart but then I realize that it's been nearly what 15 years? seperating the games. they should feel different. and play differently.

This is supposed to be a region rather distant from the previous four regions...rumors abound that this region is actually based on the American west coast. so it's understandably much different both culturally and technologically from the Hoenn/Johto/Kanto/Sinnoh continent. :P

If implemented well, it will lose the traditional feel, but gain a newer, fresher one in the process. :D

I don't think you can judge it until you try it. From here it does look very city like, but I think we've only seen one city and one town so far. Actually only a bit of a town if I remember correctly. Perhaps the other towns and cities won't be as industrial although I personally hope they will be. I just want to try something new. Rural towns were getting a bit old.

I think it fits, seeing as the world is also getting more High Tech as it goes on. Hopefully the whole game won't be cities and repeatedly same looking characters, i'm sure somethings will be changed.

I think it looks pretty neat like that, some high tech stuff will definitely look interesting in the games. As soneone else said, it's been about 15 years since Pokemon's been out, so it surely is going to be, er, 'teching' itself up.

Hmm. Are you upset because the games are changing, or because they're changing in a way you don't like? And if the latter is the case, then how would you like to see them evolve?

We've had essentially the same game for the past four generations, I personally feel it's time for a drastic change and B/W seem to be providing it. Honestly, even if this generation is different that isn't to say gen 6 won't go back to the style we've been used to for so long, so I wouldn't worry about Pokemon "being ruined" or anything like that.

So yeah. Excited for this generation, moreso than any other I've been around for the release of.

What? All of the regions/generations have different feels. Johto was different than Knato, being more Sacred and ancient. Hoenn was different than anything done before and Sinnnoh truly was separate. It is only natural for these things to evolve over time.

It does seem like they're going a little overboard with the graphical stuff. Sure, it looks nice and all but I prefer the quaint towns nested in the countryside of the region, amidst beautiful flowers and flowing rivers. And, on the topic of cars, I sure as hell hope that they're not replacing the bike with a motorized vehicle of some sort.

You're right, they don't. And that isn't a bad thing. :]

Look at Zelda. If they "stayed true" to the original style of video game they created on the NES, we'd never have a masterpiece like Ocarina of Time.

Evolution in video games is unavoidable, I think we all need to stop looking at B/W strictly in relation to past generations and appreciate it for being an entirely new experience.

They don't make anything like they use to. You can either speculate about the scary changes, or accept the fact that everything changes and speculate about how much fun it can be, because you know you're buying it, playing it and loving it.

Didn't one of the Corocoro screenshots back in April show the hometown looking rather traditional?



My guess is that there will still be a few old styled areas, but the main focus will be urbanized.

I have a question for the OP: Why would you want to see the same thing over and over again? Wouldn't it get just a bit tedious for you? I think it's time that Pokemon did undergo a change; to feel more realistic and for the gamer to actually feel like they're going on a Pokemon adventure and not...y'know, feel plain and stuff. D/P/P and even HG/SS had wonderful 3D graphics, but this is taking it to a whole new level.

And to be honest, I like it.
