Since the old thread died here's new one.
Has anything about these games stuck out to you? Do you like that thing or dislike it? Overall how do you rate this generation thus far? Do you have any disappointments?

No disappointments so far for me. I don't get why so many people dislike "Meethree" I like it. I would be a little disappointed if "Mewthree" was a new form of mewtwo rather than an entirely new pokemon. It seems to be an independent pokemon, but who knows. I'm just so excited for this generation. Can't wait till October! I think people are getting upset because there are going to be a lot of changes. But sometimes change is a good thing... I think this gen is gonna be great.

There isn't enough information out about the games to give a definite list of likes and dislikes, other than the 3D aspects, Sylveon and the Newtwo.

Honestly, really no disappointments so far. It's still pretty early news-wise, so we'll see what happens later on.

I don't know if I'll buy it, (unless there is some groundbreaking new changes to the battle formula), since the older you are, the more repetitive the games start to feel, and the less enjoyment you get out of them.

Good Bye Nintendo WiFi, you were fun. (my codes won't work anymore, so.... ya, hit me up on 3DS if you want dem trades.)

^ I wouldn't agree entirely to that; Sure nostalgia might mess things up from time to time(that ol' 'I remember when there was only *low number* gen/s') because some of us have been with the games since the start, but I've genuinely been really excited each time a new gen is announced and while playing through them.

Maybe it's me but, even though the basics of the storylines have been the same(beat gyms, bad guys along the way, then beat the E4 and champion), each gen's story has had a pretty unique feeling to me; I look beyond the usual basics and enjoy the new evil team's motives, new people, new areas, etc. So long as they continue to improve things in general, each new region has felt fresh to me and I'm more than sure Gen 6 will be the same.
Don't you think Hoenn deserves to be at least this beautiful?

Oh my gosh, Newtwo, I'm stealing that word until its real name is revealed.

When early scans of the movie posters came out with Newtwo, I was one of the many who were really hoping it would turn out fake. I thought that had it turned out real, it would have been my first disappointment. That being said, having seen a clearer image and the short trailer of it, I can safely say I like it more than I initially did at first. So, no complaints or disappointments from me!

I disagree to an extent. I can understand some old fans getting tired of the same formula every generation. GameFreak, however, has found something that really works for them, and going on six generations now it hasn't seemed to fail them yet. For long time fans like myself, we always know what to expect so it feels safe so-to-speak. At the same time, each generation is designed so differently that it doesn't always feel the same regardless of them all sticking to the same formula since Gen I. The addition of new Pokémon, new stories, a new region and new places, new people, and new game mechanics and enhancements really makes up for a lot of things that would otherwise feel bland after awhile.

Everything so far imho is pretty good :D. Graphics, Pokemon, region (so far)...the only thing I don't really like are the main characters. They seem rather...regular. Also the full 3D, I wonder what changes will happen with the battle sims that are slowly growing in popularity, what will happen to our sprites?

I'll be honest, I'm disappointed that the new 3D type layout means we won't see the shrinking animation anymore. I know it's trivial but still.

I'm afraid too that the animations will make the battles feel really dragged out and ridiculously long. but I really like the battle animations usually so I'm torn :/

And one more thing I'm disappointed about is that they didn't bring back the pokemon following you around from Yellow/HG/SS. I want that brought back so badly!!!!!

I hope the graphics are a work in progress, as they look awful for a 3DS game. The system is powerful enough to do Colosseum/XD-like graphics and what we get it a below average-looking PSP game.

I'm not one to harp on graphics, but sometimes I do have to draw the line somewhere. I know that Pokemon games aren't the best looking games on a system, but even for these lower standards it's not good.

Everything else is fine so far however, although that "Mewtwo influenced" legendary does look a bit off.

So far, I really like all of the pokemon they have released. They are all designed very well and most are cute! <3

I am excited about the 3D graphics. I have been wondering for years when they were going to stop using sprites (although I do like the sprite animation).

No disappointments for me, thus far. I like everything, including the new Pokemon; if any of you noticed, though, when ever a Pokemon is shown battling in the new region, there's never any music playing.. It would REALLY suck if there wasn't any music, which I highly doubt will happen.

I'm disappointed in quite a bit to do with this generation, to be honest.

First of all, Sylveon. The fact that it's type is still unknown hints that they are likely going to add some gimmicky new type, you know, "Light" or "Good" or "Fairy" or something. Plus, the design of Sylveon is boring and uninspired, looking like a splice of Espeon, Milotic, and Victini.

Next we have the starters. Chespin is... okay, I guess. It's an odd design, not really notable, but not necessarily good either. If I do get one of these games, I'll probably choose it, because honestly, it just has the best aesthetic to it and seems like it could be at least slightly interesting, what with it's likely secondary type being Dark. Fennekin looks way too cutesy, even for a Pokemon. I don't like it at all, but I don't really hate it either. It's just not my thing. However, Fennekin does have the possibility of winning back some respect for Game Freak, due to the fact that it doesn't look like it'll be yet another Fire/Fighting combo. Froakie... good lord. It's design is just embarrassing. It's not like Game Freak can't do frogs, either. They've proven that they can create good frogs with Politoed, so why is this thing so ugly? Now, I must stress, the evolutions aren't out yet, so I can only predict what they may be. Who knows, Froakie's final form could be a complete badass. However, just from a first-form standpoint, I'd have to say that Chespin is the most bearable.

Finally, that horrendous Mewtwo form. And, I'm not even saying that giving Mewtwo a form was that bad of an idea. Sure, I generally dislike forms for their gimmicky nature, but a new form for Mewtwo actually had a bit of potential. The original Mewtwo looked very intimidating and alien, and a new form could look even more so. But what do they give us? They give us a strange, ponytail-headed oddball. The new form actually looks weaker than Mewtwo, with the cold, slitted eyes of the original Mewtwo contrasting with the giant, bulbous "ANIMOO" eyes of the new form.

I guess the two version legendaries revealed are alright, I certainly don't hate them like I do the new Mewtwo form, but I certainly don't like them either.

To be honest, though, none of this really surprises me much; I've been losing interest in the series once Generation III ended. It just seems like the generations have been getting worse and worse. I fear that some day soon, Pokemon will become the new Sonic: Old, tired, lacking in creativity, and in desperate need of ending.

Though I'd prop this thread back up with a pet peeve of mine.

I suppose my major disappointment is information. Nah, I'm not saying that GF can't have their fun and hide stuff from the Pokemon fans as a whole, but there's really only so much you can speculate before it just gets tiring and then it revolves around in a full circle. Regular new material would definitely be appreciated, even in small amounts. It doesn't have to be every month, shortening it to once every 2-3 weeks, with tiny tidbits of information (but still enough to have some sort of discussion) until the summer months come (in which I would expect that the information would be a bit more juicy), would definitely be much appreciated.

I guess the only disappointment for me so far is Newmew, I kinda liked it at first but then I saw the video of the original Mewtwo transforming to Newmew & I honestly prefer the original one.
I believe GF was trying too hard to please the nostalgia fanboys by giving Mewtwo a new form but it ended up looking like a bottle opener but I appreciate that they went back to some of the old pokes...

Ah yes, Mewtwo's Awakened form. Can't say I'm too happy with that, but at the same time, I'm not really that disappointed in it, either. I remain more or less indifferent to it, but I'm just hope that there's kind of more I can sink my teeth into, in a sense. I just want something different and new, but I don't know when that's going to come.

I'm still disappointed from the male trainer's design. He honestly looks kind of generic, if that makes sense. I just wish he had more... "oomph".

I agree that the male protagonist looks rather bland, hopefully though he (and she) is customisable,
and what we've seen so far from him is just the basic template.

But I also have to agree with Para-Dox, the graphics looks very disappointing. (Though, oddly, the battle graphics looked way better)

Especially when comparing it to other 3DS games:

The only disappointment that I have as of now is the new Mewtwo forme. It just seemed to unnecessary... I like the design and everything but it just seems so out of place and it kind of annoys me that they're now slapping formes on Pokemon as old as Mewtwo.

Anyway, I'm excited for the battles and the entire overworld. I'm a little hesitant about how big of a change it's going to be compared to what we've been used to for the past 15 years, which has essentially been the same screen revamped, while this seems like something straight out of the GameCube games. I'm excited for that, just not the adjustment phase :(

This. We barely know anything lol but my first dislike might come pending Sylveon's type.

Also, Mewbuu meaning a forme and not a new Pokemon. I can deal with it, but I would've preferred a new Pokemon instead! It would make for an interesting back story about prior attempts (or new attempts after Mewtwo's "failure") to create Mew from its genes.

I was excited to come into the forum to discuss new XY info and semi-speculate, but with this little information it's basically 100% speculation and hopes for the new game. Why I've been holding off from this XY board is because I don't really like to participate in this because it kind of gets my hopes up, because a game isn't ever perfect when it's the first in its generation, especially because this is an entirely new style.

I was disappointed by lack of information because they revealed the games so early, but then... nothing. We don't even know something as simple as the Legendary's types, or the protagonist's actual looks. They even reveal a Pokemon and then FOR WEEKS hide its typing. Although I know the game will be great, they're not really setting themselves up well here, there has been so much buildup to Sylveon's typing that it has to be.. "good" and I guess not just like "it's Flying type" or whatever. It's because people have explored thinking of the possibility that its a standard type, so now they're wondering, is it a dual type? is it part of an eeveelution pair? is it a new type? and if it's none of those its going to be kind of disappointing =/

I guess what I'm trying to say is that it's great they're revealing things, but is there much harm in saying, "the Legendary is Dark/Flying" or "Sylveon is flying." I mean, I guess it's a new type and all but still..
