I perfered Platinum and Emerald's to BW...but that's me as I found the sages to be fillers, and N being the only likable one, plus it felt rushed at the end. Hopefully XY will have a similar storyline to Pt and E.

Does anyone know roughly how many new Pokemon there will be? (I haven't read all the posts in this thread)

And maybe some people who ordered online will get the game a day before? I know Amazon have done it before.

Some say 70...

I hope it does...I want to play it to disprove these negative feelings I'm having of the game being disappointing .

I can't take this wait. I want to look at leaks of the game so badly. This is hurting my soul terribly.

And seriously... only 70 new 'mons? We've seen so many so far in official form, that'd be really disappointing to me.

I'm so ready. Been impatient. The pokemon-GL site is being re-worked for it right now, so no dream pokemon for a week or so.

IGN Gave it a 9/10 but the story line is not as great as Black and Whites. I say that Black and Whites story lines where probably the best story line the game of Pokemon has ever received. It was difficult and it made sense. I liked it.
It wasn't. It relied too much on cliches with N, and there was nothing engaging about it. Trying to go for a serious story in a main Pokemon game could only get you too far, especially when it wasn't cohesive. The story line just felt out of place and frankly, shoehorned in. I also hate the twist. It was so stupid.

I still stand by the fact that Colosseum has the best storyline. It was simple, but extremely effective. Storytelling by using the unsettling atmosphere and unwelcoming vibe (seeing as you play as a villain after all going to places you don't belong to), and not with cliches or tired tropes. It felt like Super Metroid (but obviously not as perfectly executed) in a sense which I really appreciate. XD was similar too but a little less distinctive, and it also told the story in a more traditional way than letting settings, imagery and atmosphere do the work.


I hope the story line goes back to the original games. Out of the main line games gen 1 probably had the best one in a similar vein to Colosseum.

Since we already know 64 Pokémons, i don't think there will be only 70 New Pokémons. Plus, many leaked pokémons are pokémons that are going to evolve once for sure, sometime twice! And we only have 2 legendaries for the moment so..

Is it really that many already? omg, that's ridiculous haha. Yeah, there's gotta be more than 70 then. Hoping for a bit more than 100, personally.

Guys just a theory but it's possible they (the leaker) didn't take into account Pokemon evolutions when they rounded up the numbers.

Yes! This list ( http://imgur.com/qUTSULn ) is NOT up to date and have 60 new pokémons, so i really don't think there will be 70 new pokémon on the 6th gen. I hope around 100 or 110 too

Totally agree with you. Been avoiding spoilers for the last couple of days, this seems as the most safe XY Thread!

I pre-ordered Y last Tuesday, and ever since time goes incredibly slow. I want my Chespin!
Y team so far;
Chespin
Talonflame
Blastoise
Sylveon
Pseudo legendary or Tyrantrum
??? (A new Pokemon that hasn't been revealed so far).

Wow that was a bit surprising they ranked based entirely on the storyline plot. Maybe this shows Black and White, while being underwhelming according to most, apparently has the best story plot in series history.

Man only 8 more days! Can't wait for Mega Charizard X. Finally our favorite fire starter is a dragon type. Glad they implemented the classic starters into X & Y. The nostalgia is almost overwhelming.

I really somewhat regret getting Y now, because Mega Charizard X is just awesome indeed. Oh well.. if I do save up enough money though than for sure I will try my best to also get a copy of X as well, possibly for Christmas.

Any other ways we can hype up moreso for the games? Seems like most are already through the movies. x3 I finished today.

Apparently it's now been revealed that Mega Stones can be traded between games. That means there could be a chance for you to get a Mega Charizard X on your Y version after all. Same could be said for other version-specific Mega Evolutions and their respective Mega Stones.

That's at least good to hear! I'm really certain that Game Freak wouldn't want things to be version-exclusive that you can't transfer over at all :p

Wait, koff~

What's going on with all the side attractions? Did they rid themselves of contests entirely? I ask this because if they get rid of contests, berries are quick to follow. I enjoyed the berry system they brought up in Pokemon Heart Gold and Soul Silver Versions and I hope we can grow them again (also, make buying mulch much easier by removing the annoying flower lady that talks forever).

I just started using the dream world less than a month ago and realized that while it is a great way to get certain items, restricting the growth of berries to an online game harms the experience overall. It requires you to have a computer that can run the game and for you to tuck in a Pokemon from your game. It also restricts you to carrying over just one Pokemon at a time (maybe more when you get more points) when there is clearly space for more in the Forest Area.

Also, I don't want to see any more new Pokemon in people's avatars and signatures. I feel that it's a tad insensitive to those who wish to see them for themselves. It's really hard to avoid those kinds of things even if you steer clear of the Pokemon X and Y Version threads.

Maybe waiting a day or two after the games come out to change your avatar and signature would be a better choice, as no one likes a spoilsport. If you do this (new Pokemon in signatures/avatars) think of yourself as the guy who ruins the plot-line to an anticipated film you've been wanting to see in the first ten minutes of the film's run time! I can understand wanting to show your excitement, but causing detriment to others surely isn't the way to go, koffi~

The 70 rumor has been debunked as false. First of at the moment we are at 67 total that have been leaked and ones we already know. This is not counting the legendary trio (Beasts,Birds,Regis, Ect.) the 3rd version/sequel Legend and the event pokemon that we know we will have that have not been revealed.

I gotta agree on this -- at the very least, it would be nice if people waited to put Pokemon that haven't been released officially yet. I've been trying to avoid the unofficial leaks, and I caught a glimpse of a few in signatures before I realized what I was looking at and scrolled away quickly.

As for the number of Pokemon, I actually would rather have a smaller number of well-designed Pokemon and exciting new gameplay elements than a huge number of new monsters and little change elsewhere. There are already TONS of Pokemon... I mean, at what point does it become completely unwieldy? 1200? 1500? The more rapidly the Pokedex grows, the faster we'll see the end of the series, so I am more than okay with them slowing down a little bit.
