Nope sadly no Nintendo DS, only the 3DS this time around. :( But I guess by then the price of the 3DS might've gone down??
By then the 3DS would be like 100 bucks, I'd imagine, so there'd be little excuse to miss out, really. :x

If the girl is X she can be Xantha, and if the Boy is Y than maybe Yael (or Yale depending on how they want to spell it).
Or maybe the boy can be Yves which happens to be of french origin and comes from the name of a saint (the name Xavier also originates from a saint's name btw) and it sounds like Yvetal too.

Trying to come up with names that start with X and Y... they all just seem too forced. The protagonists' names don't need to be related to X and Y, really. There never ended up being a player character named Blake (or Blair or whatever) in BW or BW2 after all.

Do you think we will be able to walk diagonally with the analog stick?

Well maybe you can walk diagonally,
since it has the circle pad,which looks like an analog.
But I'm not really used to it,I'm used to: Up, down, left, and right.

I dunno, trailer looked kind of grid based, but something tells me it looks awkward cause the transition from 2D to 3D is something like the Shin Megami Tensei transition. Nocturne and IV look a bit on rails 4 way movement, but there is full 360 movement. I hope this is the case, but the 4x4 grass patches on route 3 have me doubtful.

While the possibility is there, I don't see GameFreak straying from the grid base movement; not yet anyway. If you look around the 0:58 mark of the trailer, there doesn't seem to be any suggestions of free wide motion based on how they controlled the player and the female following him.

It'd be sort of a disappointment if they just stick to the original left, right, up, and down movement, to be honest. Plus, it'd feel very awkward if one were to use the circular direction pad.

The systems only drop to 100 when they are about to be discontinued. Expect the 3DS to remain at 170 for another year or so. Then maybe it'll drop to 150, but it'll be a long time before the 3DS' drop to the discontinued price. 5 or 6 years.

I've seen the 3DS in Australia on sale for $119 in store. And pretty much everything is more expensive here. (despite our higher dollar)

well, i'm going to get Y version, because of Yveltal's pattern's, if you notice and you played Gen3 games, its patterns relate to Groudon, one of my favorite pokemon, but from a youtube video, i saw there is a possibility of being able to CUSTOMIZE your character, which in probobaly everyone's oppinion, is epic, and i see no reason that you can't simply choos an original poketrainer, such as Gold, or my favorite, Red! i think that would be cool! but it's not out yet and we'll just have to wait. only time will tell!

I doubt you'd be able to ever choose a previous character because trainers like Red could appear in future games. Imagine if you played as Red and you could battle him later in the game like you could in Johto and Unova.

This. Honestly, I would think with this game coming out, 3DS prices for used ones will only go up (if anyone was looking for a used one). I got mine used on ebay for $92, had a couple dings on it, but it came with everything except an SD card so I couldn't complain. Try ebay if anyone is really looking for a deal.

That was the cheap sale, though :x Otherwise it's usually a lot more. Maybe they'll have cheap trade in deals around that time, I guess!!

What if Pokemon X & Y suck? Bare with me. Gaming in general has gotten lazy. You pay $60 dollars for new a ps3 that you can beat in a day!

So think about it. Gamefreak/Nintendo is putting effort into all the 3d models, making an entirely 3d map, and everything! Do you think they are going to put less effort into the storyline because of this?

I think the games will be ok. I know it seems like most of the thought will go into making all of the 3D models and effects, but GF always has a way of making the games great and I doubt X&Y will be any different.

Hold your breath and wait I guess. I don't buy the new consoles and games anymore but I still study the newer Pokémon and the 6th generation gives me more to work with now.

Rather than have its own thread, I think this is a perfect little topic to discuss over in the X/Y General Chat and Speculation area. /merges

If these games suck, then you'll probably find me sitting alone in a dark corner crying.

I'd certainly be disappointed~! However, I would still play the game, and see if I can warm up to it. I do that all the time; I used to did not like D/P until I've played it a few times, and now I easily love the storyline. I see that X&Y can just be enjoyable a few times around too.

Eh. I'm not sure how I'd feel, I mean, now that you've said it, maybe it's time to take a step back and see, if it does release, how others feel about it first? @_@ It's important that one should do their research before purchasing a game anyway, so there's that...

Does anyone else think you'll have the option of trainer customization? I say this because of the sunglasses in the beginning when the trainer is staring into the mirror are gone when the trainer is running from the Eiffel Tower towards the end. Maybe small changes such as accessories?

See, here's the thing: I'd love for trainer customization to be introduced, but what are the chances of it really happening? I mentioned before that if anything, we would've seen screenshots of the main protagonists in different clothing of some sort, finally putting the character customization rumours to rest and all...but we haven't, so that's why I'm a bit skeptical really. I mean, I thought the sunglasses were part of the male protag's design? If not, then I can see them allowing small, customizations, but I'm not getting my hopes up on them allowing you to "pimp" out your character, so to speak. >.>

Yeah, after all... there is another hint on being able to customize your character in X and Y. There was a glitch just right when the player swung over the vine and his sunglasses were left behind, floating in the air.

But if it all turns out that there won't be customization... then I'd assume the sunglasses serve as some kind of special purpose, if not being an accessory.

The games could possibly suck entirely. It does seem a bit rushed. But it would take a lot for me to hate a Pokemon game. I'd give it so many chances, because I'm so positively biased to the franchise.
