With the new short trailer showing off Sylveon in battle, I can safely say that I'm absolutely loving the new 3D battle graphics. It certainly gives the battles more depth. Seeing more of the older Pokémon being used, I don't even miss the pixel animation. Actually, I'm glad they've moved forward from them now.

I'm glad Game Freak have finally moved onto 3D graphics. Kind of feels like a 3DS Colosseum or XD, and I like that. Especially the battles! :)

    Eh, as a spriter myself I can't help but feel a bit disappointed by the end of sprites. I mean, it was inevitable, but a bit sad, that the sprites would go sooner or later.

    Unfortunately, though, the 3D doesn't even look adequate. The male protagonist looks like he's wearing a bucket on his head due to shoddy, low-res meshes, the anti-aliasing is just plain atrocious, and the frame rate is poor.

    This is especially bad because the 3DS already proved with games such as Ocarina 3D that it can handle adequate 3D graphics.

    That battle scene with Sylveon was amazing. And its not even final footage! With some work this game is gonna look and feel perfect, and I can only assume the OW is going to rock. Best part is that legendaries likely won't be small sprites, but huge lumbering beasts, awaiting your challenge, like it epically should be.

      I presume the 3D will be present outside of graphics (I hope) so maybe we should have something similar to professor layton and the miracle mask where the 3D actually has a purpose other than graphics. What types of 3D use should there be in you opinion?

        I saw a video for this game. The graphics have improved a longshot since Black 2 and White 2. I noticed the character's heights are bigger too. The 3D looks great aswell. Do you agree?

        PS. What is the meaning of that Duskull on the post icons?!

          I think the graphics look great!

          Its a huge step from the black & white games.

            It was about time they did something about the graphics. : )

            Judging from the trailer we saw with Sylveon, it seems the graphics have already began to improve on that Battle Scene we saw compared the one in January. Although it may not be much difference, it's still an improvement which makes it more promising for the outcome by October.

              Whilst I'll definitely try the game out once it's released, I can't say I'm a fan of the way they're approaching the graphics this time around. Hopefully it looks better when actually playing the game.

              3D is the way to go! xD I think it's a really huge advancement. What you'd call 3D in B/W2 cannot be compared to this new 3D world. Sure, one might miss the classic 2D graphics, but who says one can't replay the previous generations? We can't stick to the old things forever; we have to move on to follow the ever growing technological advancements in this world. I'm certainly up for this new change!

                The reason why the 3D slider is off is because we are not watching 3D footage, and that's a simple way for Nintendo to reinforce that fact.

                  Ever since the Sylveon video, I'm loving the battle graphics. The overworld graphics still don't look great to me, but I've been waiting for a 3D pokemon main installment for a while. I'm sure the overworld graphics will improve over the course of the next nine months, I mean like, the jump in battle graphics from the first trailer to the Sylveon one was pretty good.

                    I think a 3D pokedex would be awesome, you could view the pokemon you have seen on the pokedex in 3D!!!!!

                    I think the graphics of Pokemon games in general has taken a huge step, now moving up to 3D. I like the idea of 3D graphics and from the footage I've seen so far, it's been amazing, I'm particularly liking the new battle style,a close up of the Pokemon, improved sprites and all sorts of new surroundings including new plants, new sights. Also I saw the character crossing some sort of bridge in the preview, while swinging across vines and passing something that closely resembled the Eiffel Tower. I liked everything I've been seeing so far, I have absolutely no complaints honestly :3.

                    And yeah it'd be interesting to see what they'll do with the Pokedex in 3D, it sort of leaps out of you perhaps? I'm just really looking forward what they do with the graphics. :D

                    I'm personally excited for the jump from pixel art to a 3D environment. I think after all these years it makes sense, plus all the trailers that have been released honestly look fantastic for what the limitations of the 3DS are. I don't know if I'd play with the 3D activated, but the models for the Pokémon look great and the cities look awesome as well!

                    First of all, i think the 3D art looks good so far, but I'm sure its going to improve until the final release, so it will look even more awesome. I have a 3DS, and it just feels like they havent used all the 3Ds potential yet...just my feeling.
                    I think this progression is natural, and why not use 3D graphics on a 3D console?
                    The graphics have improved a lot from the old Blue and Red to Black and White, but i think this complete re-do of the environment and the battle scenes is very fitting, being a whole new Gen on a new console.

                      I agree with you Pumpkin, im just saying having a Pokemon in 3D will be nice :)
                      Gameplay and story are way more important elements in a game, at least that my opinion, but since Pokemon has done a pretty good job at that for the last 5 Gens, i dont think they will suddenly mess that up with X/Y ;)

                      Do you honestly think they are only worrying about the graphics? Come on now, when has Pokemon ever cared for the best graphics? Everything else has been done really well so far, so why should they just ignore graphics when they obviously will still put the utmost care in gameplay, etc. like usual?

                      It looks like people will need more time to get off of the sprite train. :/

Everything else has been done really well so far, so why should they just ignore graphics when they obviously will still put the utmost care in gameplay, etc. like usual?

                        It looks like people will need more time to get off of the sprite train. :/
                        You know, I have to agree on you here; the graphics have already went a great change shifting over to the 3Ds, which is a big improvement in graphics already. Plus in the trailer, the graphics are not the final edition, so, I see no reason to worry about that.

                        Plus on top of this, Game Freak and Nintendo would never put the story of the games aside for the shift in graphics. They changed before in all the previous generations (not as drastic as this but in general they have been redesigned!), so I don't think we have any reason to worry or think that the graphics are coming first.

                        I wouldn't mind the graphics coming first as long as it isn't a story like Gen 1, really. :x So for me I would really like it if they went all out on the graphics because it just adds to it seeming like a whole new world!

                        I'd rather them use the advance in graphics to tell the story in a more compelling way. Now that we aren't stuck with pixel art maybe the models will be able to have animations for facial expressions, plus maybe cutscenes would be cool.
