2DS is for kids and parents to buy for kids. Pokemon is a game for kids. The lower price will allow Pokemon's target audience, 10 year olds, to play the new games by lowering the Cost of Entry.

Also, being the cheapest handheld will be an advantage. There are adults unwilling to upgrade to the 3DS and this might be the answer for the answer for them.

Sorry to bring bad news guys but that pokemon from the screenshot is Politoed.

I took a higher resolution screen shot and matched it with Politoed(its the only frontal pic I could find), its very similar.



Even if the image is stretched out by the motion blur you can recognized the spiral marking and the yellow hands. If you look even closer on the top of the pokemon you will notice a faint blue color which is the antenna and also the pink cheeks are slightly visible. This is just a Politoed with its mouth open, sorry guys :/.

Yes, it does look like a politoed.
Hope that the weird pokemon in the first trailer is a new one.

Ah that's pretty affordable actually! I like it anyway.

In terms of design, it's pretty clunky but If it's cheaper it's pretty cool I think they'll definitely have a bundle for XY releases anyway..

The 2ds will be my affordable 2nd hand second console for when I want to trade with myself, simple. It's perfect for doing that job.

Here the specs comparison of the consoles:
http://i.imgur.com/OAsKtJu.png

It may be cheaper but it only have the mono on it except if you use headphones. Also no power saving mode, so the battery will deplete faster than 3DS and 3DS XL. Another problem is it can't fold so the screen may be easily broken compared to 3DS and 3DS XL.

Why isn't the power adaptor included with the XL when it's included with the other consoles?

Okay, this is what I see, it might help get across how I am seeing a goat-like pokemon. But I could also see this being some sort of quadruped or a different sort. I do see the eevee, with a wig reference as well. haha
Its size seems to be a little smaller than all the regular Gogoat. Maybe it could be their pre-evolution? Either that, or it could be some sort of a dog-like Pokémon just like people have mentioned. Its eyes look a little a big, so maybe it could be a puppy? Most puppy Pokémon do have big eyes, after all~

I'm afraid that it has almost certainly been proven to be a Politoed as seen below.

Maybe the legendary duo can be a Moth representing souls (or another aspect of death as long as it's something different from Yvetal) and a Butterfly that represents dreams.

Don't you guys remember that Volcarona already exists?

I thought it was a legend myself, I guess it's simply a Pseudo then?
Also, on the topic of butterflies, Butterfree, totes deserves a Mega.

It's not a Pseudo either, it's bst doesn't meet the standards in order to be labled a Pseudo legendary.

I think Beautifly should get one too...as well as the other regional bugs. Beedrill could use one...

Can I ask something here? I didn't find a chit-chat thread so I thought questions can go here instead of in a new thread...

Supposing I'll buy Pokémon Y on a cartridge, will the save file be on the cartridge itself or on the 3DS?

If its like all other 3DS games, then the save file is on the cartridge.

I presume it'll be like the other games, with the Save Data on the Cartridge. The only thing that is Dependent on the system is Wifi data. If you switch main systems, you have to resync it and it wipes your current data, such as Friend Codes.

No, Volcarona is Gen V's equivalent to Snorlax: a super rare regular Pokemon that can only be found once or twice per game via interaction.

Butterfree wasn't on the rumored list of possible Mega Evolutions a couple of pages back, so I doubt it'll get one.

You mean when I switch systems I'll have to re-choose the internet network I was using & re-configure it? Also what else besides Friend Codes will be lost? I guess I can just save those in a text file...

As far as i know there are no new rumors and i don't expect something until the next corocoro leaks.
So i guess it's going to be more random speculations for the next two weeks.

I would like a bug legendary based off of a spider.
