....That....well, I definitely agree with you there. I thought it would be something small/tiny like revealing Sylveon's type and then...waiting another extra month, but I don't mind all of this in the slightest! xD;

None of the new pokemon designs look overly impressive, but we're at least shaping up for some designs better than last gen.

Riding the goat looks very interesting too.

I can only assume that Yayakoma is the regional bird Pokemon, I'll definitely be using it on my team.

Just saw the electric lizard, Elikiteru. Looks a bit like Mawile to me, but it's cute. Why Electric/Normal, though? I'm just hoping that it has a decent movepool so that it's not totally walled by Golett and Golurk. I can't help but wonder if Parabola Charge will be the Electric equivalent of Giga Drain and Drain Punch.

I probably won't! Especially since it looks like a firs- oh, in general? Yeah I will definitely use its whole form in my team just cause this birdy is so pretty :3

    I'm definitely going to play as a blonde. Yup.

    Also, can we possibly expect the English translations for these new Pokémon and the region in a matter of days? If the past few months are anything to go by, the official US site will have these up in soon, possibly by the 14th.

      By body wasn't ready! But this is enough info to make of for the long wait/until the release. Or maybe I'm exaggerating haha.

      Still hate the guy's outfit but like the girl's.

        I'm sure the localization won't be far behind, it never usually has been with the news flow for these games. As you said, the official website/Twitter will hopefully update shortly.

        As for the character customisation, it looks like there's a few different combinations to choose from which is a great step forward.

          Localization is usually posted on the 14th since the 15th happens that day and coro coro would ne out then. So three more days.

          I just saw this, and I'm really excited about it! I really like the riding idea, though apparently that's only possible in Miare City. I like the Pokedex design, seems sharp and modern. As for the character customization, I don't really care about it, I wouldn't have minded playing as a blonde even though I'm not one.

          And the new Pokemon! I love Yanchamu (the panda), he looks so cute, and I bet his evolution will be really cool, given his Fighting type. Erikiteru seems to me like a gimmick Pokemon, so I'm really curious about him and that new move he can learn.

              This thread sure exploded over the last two hours.

              Rideable Pokémon? I wonder if we're going to have them following us a la HG/SS, after all!

              Are character names confirmed?

                Wonder what their english names will be...hope they're creative.
                The lizard looks odd but that's alright. The Robin looks cooler than Pidove, hope it's part of a three stage line but I get the sense it may be two staged like Nocowl and Swellow.

                The panda looks cool, reminds me of a greaser for some reason. The Goat is beautiful.

                And yes this was a lot of information...

                  pokejungle say that the name of the girl in the main charcter's page is miniskirt rika and this is a start of a battle. miniskirt rika seems a name of a random NPC, so does it mean that in x and y at the begining of every battle we will see the foe's picture?

                  i think such a thing will be nice at the start but soon be very annoying

                    Thats so awesome, i love that move, and its great to have a bird able to learn it
                    I've only used Pidgey from the "early birds" as a team member, might change with X/Y :D

                    I'm not too fond of the Normal/Electric combo right now, but I'll have to wait and see
                    what movepool he gets. I Guess You could call Parabola charge the electric equivalent of those moves

                    The bird looks a lot cooler than Pidove, i hope it's a 3-stage evo as well!
                    My favorite of the new 4 is still the Pamda though

                      Maybe we can ride Pokemon that can only be ridden in real life (logically) because people ride elephants (Mamoswine/Donphan) of course Rapidash/Ponyta Zebstrika/Blitzle, and Maybe Bouffoulant and Tauros? I've always wanted to ride a rapidash ever since that episode where Ash did.

                        I guess that would make a lot of sense. And maybe you can only ride your pokemon in certain places, not all over the map? Either way, I'm looking forward to it!

                          I wish we can customize the hair style beyond the color as the boy's hair is still bothering me.

                              I see no problems, remember, as you can see, these protagonist have Canon Artwork, canon appearances, the customisation can't change it too much or else that artwork would be pointless, so changing just the colour is fine to me, at least it's a step.

                              I like the Robin Pokémon the most I think! Appropriate for a European-themed region. And the rideable goat thingy is definitely a yay! Although, I do hope we can ride others.

                              Trainer customisation too! I think the male player as a blonde is preferable. Seeing the girl in front of the mirror make me wonder if we'll have more than just skin and hair colour as customisation?

                              Regardless, I'm even more excited for these games. Roll on October!
