Really hate the fact that old pokemon are being encountered in these games. Unova is supposed to be far away from the other regions, meaning all other pokemon from other regions shouldnt be encounterable. Idk, that just bugs me.

Also no follow me feature annoys me.

My only disappointment is the fact that I only get one rival. Two rivals added much more story to the original BW.

One of the few things that I would be disappointed by is if they don't fix the really pixelly problem during battles. That really got to me in Black and White. I was really hoping for Black and White 2 to be on the 3DS. But who knows?! Maybe there will be "Pokemon Black and White 3D"

I hate the male's hair
I'm so happy its a DS title, now I don't have to get $250 for a 3DS (add tax and game and it gets expensive...)

and dear lord the Rival looks like someone out of Dragon Ball Z

also, no following=good thing

Keep my pokemon in their pokeballs where they belong unless I need to battle someone

Yes my only disappointment is only having one rival. It feels weird travelling with only one person and I'd like a male and female companion. Why can't the rival be female?

I also hope we see the other protagonist along the way. I'd be disappointed if we don't.

Well, I mean... you only had one rival in the rest of the other games. I'm kinda happy that there is only one rival because that way, Cheren isn't coming up to you every time you go to a new Route and challenge you to a battle.

My disappointment is the new male hero's appearance. I'm glad it's not for 3DS (I don't understand why others want a 3DS exclusive Gen 5 game. I can't even afford or save up money for something almost $300). I'm also disappointed that the Vs. Seeker option is not there for certain trainers that power up in team and levels after the main story. And Prof. Juniper is replaced!? Why replace the only female Professor? I DEFINITELY LIKE to see older Pokemon in the main story because forcing players to go through it with only Unova pokemon is infuriating. But having older Pokemon in the regional Pokedex means that the Battle Subway Normal lines will have older pokemon in the rosters, right? If the Battle Subway is left unchanged, I'll be the most disappointed player yet.

The fact that they aren't exclusively 3DS games, and by the male trainer's/Evil Prof's really dumb haircut & design are my complaints, lol.

Watching the new Pokémon Smash, I'm actually kind of disappointed that Game Freak chose to stick with the EXACT same music for regular battles and whatnot. Maybe what I was hearing was just a demo, but I would prefer to have remixed tracks, because those tracks DO get old.

I'm being picky, but c'mon, we have two whole new sequels that are set in the future ;-;

1: 3DS is $170...not almost 300. 3DS cost as much as an iXL.
2: Haven't gotten far enough to rule VS Seeker out so still hope for that.

^ Well, still, I can't afford or save up that much money for it.
And hopefully, they'll add the Vs. Seeker option. It will be a major disappointment to only grind by Audino-hunting and Elite 4 over and over again.

Because the games look flippin' awesome!

At first I wasn't that disappointed when hearing that the game wouldn't be made for the 3DS because for one I don't own one, and I didn't really care about it much. But seeing the trailer/gameplay just makes me wonder how it would all look on a 3DS with the 3D features. & I would imagine it to look amazing. :[

Yeah, I hope the other protagonist serves a role as a professor's assistant or something.

I don't want this to be like FR/LG, where one protagonist doesn't appear at all...

I enjoyed B/W cos of the two rivals thing.

Well having the same starters was kind of a letdown but at the very least this gives me a valid enough excuse to go with Oshawott now seeing how I already used Tepig once before and Snivy is rather underwhelming from what I've seen, not expecting Samurott to be as great as some of my friends put it out to be though but if I can get the TM for Swords Dance I can make a pretty effective wallbreaker with Aqua Jet, Megahorn, and Hydro Pump if I do say so myself but again I'm not getting my hopes up that much atm.

That and Kyurem still retaining its Dragon/Ice typing regardless of what form it changes into makes me a tad sad.

The only thing I didn't like about the two rival thing in Black and White was that they were constantly battling you (which got annoying) and that Cheren was much much stronger than Bianca.

I was actually expecting to hear about a Dark-type gym leader, instead of a water one(poison is a nice surprise though), but I guess we can wait because we still don't know too much.

It would be a nice change of pace at having a real competitive female (main) rival for once, tbh.

I excitement far outweighs my disappointment! But the lack of Follow-me feature does disappoint me a little. Everything else, I can live with!

The Follow-me feature was...okay for me in Heart gold and Soul Silver. The only thing I didn't like about it was that when ever I pressed A on my Pokemon, it would have a sad face alot and I would be like..."WHAT DID I DO WRONG?" Also, it got a bunch of useless items for the contests that I never did.

This is the disappointment thread, not the follow-me thread. The only problem I have right now is the name "Akuroma". Seriously, how obviously evil is this guy?

hey! You never know, there are plenty of rivals in games that look really evil but are good in the end.

Yes, and people consider the lack of Follow Me to be a disappointment...
Akuroma definitely sounds and LOOKS evil (reminds me of Elpizo from Mega Man Zero 2 or Dr. Weil from the series), but we'll have to see his English name, since I have no idea what connotations on a Japanese name looks like. xD

Akuroma isn't a rival, is he? He's a Professor.
"He researches Pokémon strength and is experimenting on something to do with the dormant abilities of Pokémon."
Well if he's experimenting on Pokémon, I don't think that's a good thing..

I'm dissapointed its not on 3DS, I've been waiting for a 3D Pokemon adventure (other then Super Pokemon Rumble, I enjoyed it though). Older GEN Pokemon appearing is a bit confusing since none have appeared in Black until the east side was opened up to us, but hey, anything can happen in the space of 2 years... Hero's design isn't all that in my opinion, in fact the only Hero designs I've liked are Red, Gold/Ethan and Brenden, the rest I dislike, especially Lucas.

The male protagonist looks like a transvestite with his sickening leggings and awful pants. The jewfro guy should have been the male protagonist. I'm a bit biased on this, though, considering I actually have a jewfro in real life.
