I saw the trailer, and it seems like the battle now uses models now. I don't mind, but I really miss the sprites.

I'm actually really glad they've transitioned from sprites to models, because I'm still not a huge fan of the pixels from the sprites we see during the battles in the Fifth Gen games. It'll be nice to have battles looking sharp and clean once again.

Also, since this relates the the graphics in X/Y, I've merged your thread here.

I've actually waited a very long time for this transition. I'm fond of games that use models (such as Pokemon Colosseum and XD), because the battles would look so much more life-like, so to speak. Especially since, assuming if moves do make contact in these games like they would in the console versions, that would honestly just be icing on the cake.

Sure, the graphics style isn't a huge explosion of amazing or anything, but I'm satisfied with it at this point, and that's really just how I want to play my Pokemon games from now on.

Loads of new high quality images showcasing the new graphics and this is just a few of them! Not sure I like how the new HP bar though or how they placed it.

I'm honestly in love with the new graphics. From the first trailer we got up to now, the graphics look like they've taken a gianst leap in quality. I'm so pleased with how the models are turning out, plus I like the status screen for Chespin too (Also level 5 Vine Whip, niceeeeeeeeeee). I'm actually pretty fond of the new HP bar, making it more minimalistic and out of the way than before.

I'm loving the detail in the background. It makes battles feel more dynamic.

The new move animations definitely look awesome.That fire looks awesome, and it did with Fennekin using Fire Spin during the trailer as well. The leap over to the 3DS provided Pokémon to grow a lot and make all the different graphical factors the game has move from sprites to actually full-fledged animations. I know I'm starting to parrot myself, but the leap over to the new handheld was the best move they've made this whole generation.

Is it just me or does it look like the graphics improved a lot since the very first gameplay video surfaced? Am I just seeing things?

They definitely have. The very first trailer seemed very low-quality and grainy with the movement, but the new graphics seem much more crisp and clean than they have previously, even with movement occurring. They have definitely polished up the graphics in the past few months, and it's definitely a large improvement from the first trailer.

I like the graphics better, however I hope they can still refine them if they aren't done with the game yet, that way it'll be even more beautiful.

There's been so much progression in terms of graphics since we saw that trailer in January, if this is only half way I can't wait to see the final result.

It looks a lot better now than it did with the original trailer.

I still don't understand why the battles look so much better than the other graphics in the game. Someone at GF isn't pulling their weight methinks.

It's still beautiful though.

Honestly they might just be NPC characters. It looks like the character speaking is just saying her little text blurb before the battle starts. The other character is stumping me though. It could either be a double battle initiated because you stepped into both of their eye lines, or it could be a companion following you maybe?

Since NPC means Non-Player-Character, then of course all 3 of em are NPCS, it's just the girl in the top right is pretty obviously an NPC version of the female protag as she's wearing the exact same clothes.

Bad word choice there, but yes of course they're all NPCs =P I guess I should have said they're minor NPC that just appear to be trainer classes, not much else. Of course, the female protagonist there probably means that whichever gender character you don't pick will be incorporated into the storyline somehow like previous generations have done.

I'm actually in love with the graphics in the new trailer. It's obvious that GF have worked pretty hard on the game since the first trailer and things just seem, crisper.

The graphics in the new trailer look much improved since we first saw the game in January.

It's great to see so much time, effort and love is being put into the game.

No me gusta that ugly HP bar.

The aliased text and tiny elements are not good on the 3DS, especially on the very edges of the screen...
