I am so excited to be playing the new game! I habe noticed how the region thus far kind of matches Kanto with the small town, then a bigger town then a forest.

It is exciting to play and there are so many Pokemon available it is unreal

Well, i got my game yesterday thanks to amazon, and so far it has been a blast! I picked Froakie as my starter and met the 4 friends/rivals you have throughout the game. They all have their own personality and goals and are quite loveable. I caught a bunch of pokes, but decided to only use Scatterbug. I trained them up and got to the first gym. The badge battle was neither too hard nor too easy, and proved to be a good challenge for a first gym. Be advised, no matter what starter you pick, you wont really have much advantage and continued my journey and got to Lumiose, which is simply immense!! Gonna take quite some time to explore every bit of it. I received Charmander and a very special item from Sycamore :D after that i saved and went to sleep. Im heading home now, hoping to continue my adventure!

My team so far:
Spoiler:
Frogadier Lv 16
Vivillon Lv 15
Charmander Lv 12


Notable Things/Curiosities
Spoiler:
- Your mother finally has her own room lol
- Route 1 has no wild Pokemon
- The EXP Share is given to you after the 1st badge
Its now a key item and gives exp to your whole team!

Just started off my journey and restarted a few times to get a good Froakie. I've settled with a female Modest Froakie and I couldn't ask for anything better tbh. Onwards!~

Now I'm spending forever looking for a Pamsage. Not fun! xD

I am simply in love with Pokemon-Amie!
It's super fun and just adorable. I'm surprised how much detail went into it - I mean they made various animations for it and that for over 700 Pokémon (I mean.. it DOES work for all, right?)

My team so far is Fennekin and Pikachu! Was happy that I ran into a jolly Pikachu at that. : )
(Somehow I knew I was gonna end up with a Pikachu though.. as usual.)

Gotten my first badge and have basically spent hours in the first town/routes. For one thing I don't want to get much further yet and then again.. Amie is entertaining enough to keep me in one spot.

I also had my first random battle? Technically it was foolish to accept it because I knew it would be a defeat for my two little ones but hey - when the battle request popped up I just couldn't resist to at least try it out. :')
(And I think I can say Fennekin and Pikachu did fairly well considering they were up against 4 of which some were evolved *shurg*)

I also noticed that the sounds Pokémon make seem less mechanical (as in of old Pokémon.. noticed it most on Zigzagoon!)

My Charmander has JUST evolved into Charizard! I was given the Charizardite X a long time ago, so I can't wait to have my 2nd Mega Evolution Pokemon!

Was very surprised when I was given a free Lucario- I had trained one up from a Riolu; one of the first Pokemon I caught in the game. I deposited the one I was given and use the one I was caught.

So i just had another intense 6hr session. The Game just keeps getting better and better! Sadly, the first time you visit the biggest city in Kalos, you only get to see half of it. well another time i guess. I travelled through many different routes and caught many different Pokes. I really love how gigantic the Kalos Dex is! After getting the PokeFlute i woke up and caught the Snorlax. Along the way i caught a Honedge and a Croagunk for my team.
Right now im at the Glitterstone cave, and i love the new gameplay inside it!
Thats all for now, gotta grab something to eat (:
8hr playtime and still only one badge!

My team so far
- Frogadier Lv 20
- Charmeleon Lv 20
- Croagunk Lv 20
- Vivillon Lv 21
- Honedge Lv 21 (Loving this guy!!)

Considering if i should put Helioptile on my team...

Quilladin - lvl 16
Combusken- lvl 17
Squirtle - lvl 10

I've caught other pokemon but those are pokemon i don't want on my team.
Also i turned off the EXPshare. The game is very easy so far and i don't want to overlevel my pokemon.

The spoiler below doesn't really spoil much, but If you were like me and wanted to go in blind, it's best not to read.
Spoiler:
I started my adventure a few hours ago. So far it's been a blast. So far my team is made up of just two Pokemon, Chespin and Fletchling. I just beat Viola, she's such a cool gym leader. Really liked the style of the gym, but I think it was too easy. I am surprised by the variety of Pokemon so early on. Route 1 surprised me as well, as it essentially is just a path to the next town, with nothing else to use it for. The roller skates are an interesting feature, still hoping we can get the bike though. One thing I found cute was how when you're talking to the preschoolers and the kid NPC's that you bend down and put your hands on your knees. The framerate in the battles can get a little low, but it's still great. So far, my adventure as been very exciting, although a little easy.

I got up to the 1st gym, and beat it. Braixen just evolved and its status screen has a not lof neat animations for spinning its stick about. =) Also got a Vivillon just to confirm the Australian model for it, doubt I'll stick to using it though.


I also found a shiny Pikachu! =D Well, I'm not much of a fan of Pikachu, but yay for finding a shiny within my first hour of playing. Unlike 5th gen when it took me until B2W2.

Sissel(Wartortle), Male, level 21
Combusken, Male, level 24 (The event one, so it's holding a blazikenite)

All the little things are so much fun - I just can't get further in the story cause I keep messing around with things. :')

I have mixed feelings about the friendlist.
For one thing it's great - love how you can battle and trade any time and it just helps playing with other people even if you don't haver any Pokémon friends! (which I do but non of them have been online yet. ;o; )
But then I think it's sad that you can't interact well. The shout-out system isn't really great and even small things like sending a little smiley like in the previous gens trade would have done a great deal already!

Oh and I got a bit of a fright when i saw my Pokémon in the super training rolled over on it's back - i thought it had collapsed or something lol 3: but apparently it was only "resting".

But yea - loving all the little things but I hope to reach the 2nd gym this evening. :') sadly I'll have to leave the house for most of the day /sigh

As for the team;

Fennekin has evolved - so has my Flabébé <3
Aaaand now having a Furfrou on the team! So that makes 4 (still got my Pikachu) - but I am still clueless on which water type to use. 3:

Right now, I'm in Luminose City, with Quilladin Lv 19 and Fletchinder Lv 19 as well. Messed around with the PR video thing, how cool is it? Gamefreak have put a lot of effort into the little things this time around. Really impressed.

Just heading on to Route 5 now.

After finally deciding, I picked Froakie as my starter. Then my next goal was to (obviously!) catch a Bunnelby. Managed to get a Jolly one with decent stats so I am pretty happy about that. Other then that I've been just taking it slow, patrolling the grass for pokemon, grinding, and petting my lovely Bunnelby in Amie.

My team currently consists of:
Frogadier lvl18
Bunnelby lvl 16
Farfetch'd lvl 13
Azurill lvl 13

I wasn't planning on using Farfetch'd but now, oddly enough, I am considering it. So far he has been a huge help! Critting like a beast with his Stick equipped. Also not sure if Azurill will last as a team member either.

Oh, I need to go to bed.

Started the game as the male trainer named Michael, and nicknamed Mike. Chose Froakie as my starter, and nicknamed him Rittz (anyone who gets the reference is awesome), running through the beginning of the game until I got to Luminose City to get a Charmander. Along the way, I caught a few new Pokemon, like Fletching (who was helpful in the first Gym) and a few others.

So far, I actually spent quite a bit of time in Pokemon-amie, as I expected. It's adorable how the Pokemon "follows" you on the bottom screen, going so far as to do flips while you're on the roller skates. I also tried the Super Training, but I was getting tired at this point, so I'll play around with it more tomorrow.

Currently resting in the Pokemon Center of Luminose City.

Team is:
Rittz the Froakie - level 15
Ender the Charmander - level 13

I have to get this game so bad! First i'll buy a 3DS though.
I am going to choose Froakie (calling him Sasuke YAY!)
And my team will consist of only gen 6 'mons, with the exception of either Charmander or Bulbasaur (a flower,on his butt..!)

I started the game and picked Fennekin. I spent a lot of time in the first patch of grass I found and caught everything I encountered. Since I enjoyed all that catching, I currently only have one badge and have not travelled that far yet. I try to only use new Pokémon in my team so I can see what their evolutions are (if they have any.)
My team currently consists of Fennekin's evolution, Fletchling's evolution, the new Fairy Pokémon (Flabébé in German), Bunnelby, Litleo (Female) and Gulpin (this one I'm going to replace soon as I have no intention to train it).
Excuse my lack of English names for the Pokémon but I can't get them without getting spoiled. I will edit this post later.
