No Menus nor Sprited based work was shown in the trailer.
Because it would just be daft to have any kind of party screen other than the one we have, which shows all 6 Pokémon at once plus name/HP/something for each of them. Given that sensibility, you then realise that you'd only have a small space for a graphical representation of the Pokémon, and that it wouldn't be worth using a model there, hence icons.

I'm sure they could do alternatives, like use portraits instead. It's unlikely, though. Yes, I don't know for certain, but I really don't think it would change.
