      I need to see more before I make up my mind. The models and textures themselves could get sharper as they develop the games more.

      It's going to be quite a transition for me either way I'm sure! I preferred HG/SS type graphics. Pseudo-3D, simple, and of that unmistakable Pokemon style. I'm on the fence about how these new games are stylized. I need to see more!

        Oh, real gamer, huh? Very sharp. Too bad I'm not one then, but I'm damn glad if it means I prefer the games I play to not look ugly.

        The 3DS is capable to do much more than this. I've said it many many times, but the overworld is something you see on the DS.

        I couldn't care less about the mechanics if they don't remove random encounters and get a steady, good framerate. Story was always nothing special too.


        I'll probably get Dragon Quest 7 instead, anyway.

          I must admit, I love the new graphics.
          I only hope full 3D in battles won't slow them down. As much as I like Colosseum and XD (never played PBR) , the battles were incredibly slow, even more than in Gen 4. But seeing how fast battle animations in Gen 5 were, I think GF are aware of this problem.

            Hm.. I'm still waiting on my opinion. I'm going to wait a while before I can form a full opinion, but right now, for me it's safe to say that the graphics need a little bit more work. But in 10 months, they are definitely going to be improved, because of course, this is just a trailer.

            But the battles... the battles. To me, the graphics are amazing and I'd like to see them when they're even better. The only thing: I hope you don't have to wait 1 whole minute just for a visual to finish.

                I have a question.
                Is there something like the old super gameboy that allowed you to play game boy games on a super nintendo?

                I mean that because I don't like little screens.

                I am a rather old pokemon fan (28 years old) who got into pokemon again after more than a decade because my teenage nice fought with her mother and moved to my house, she got me back into that game, but I am not very up to date.

                  The graphics are awesome, although I will miss the pixel-art...

                    I bet the next game will have the ability to change your character avatar with different skin tones and body builds.

                    These graphics are simply stunning. Such an advancement since B2W2 in such short time. And the battles!!! OMG! GF has truly out done itself.

                    It is certainly going to take some getting used to but I think over all it is great and just what the series needed. Hopefully the framerate is up to scratch.

                      SO HAPPY. It's going to take some time to get used to the new graphics, but I'm still SO HAPPY. Now I have a reason to get a 3DS.

                        I've been wishing for a mainline Pokemon game in 3D or at least with a lot more animations in the battles and such (like many I'm guessing) for a very long time. I think X and Y look amazing, will surely look better running on the actual system, and it's not even final yet, they have months to polish things up. I can't wait for October now!

                        Yup, I feel the same way, and also need to finally get a 3DS now.

                          In the trailer, it said gameplay wasn't final. I expect improvement. My biggest complaints are the jagginess and the trainer NPCs. The way they just stand there is so awkward and unnatural looking. They need animations and should also be doing actions. (Rummaging through bags. Looking around. Fiddling with pokeballs.) At the very least, more casual poses. Also, remember back in April 2010 when we got those leaked images of B/W? The game itself changed a lot aesthetically from those images to date of release. Other than that, I love the art style. It's a huge step in the right direction. I've also wanted 3D for a long time.

                          I absolutely loved the graphics when I saw the trailer. And I'm sure the textures are going to change later on when it gets closer to it's release. It made me so excited and amazed by it's concept of how you're able to see the sky more in those games, that's fantastic. ^^

                            Come on, people... Have you never even seen 3DS games before? They look far better than this, most of the time.

                            Kingdom Hearts 3D, for example, has much more beautiful and natural-looking environments. Super Mario 3D Land, Mario Kart 7, etc... All games that are, like Pokemon, not designed to be realistic, but they still have smooth and attractive models and textures.

                            The game literally looks like they took BW and just tilted the camera and changed the 2D sprites to 3D models that look like sprites. It's pretty disappointing to anyone who has played a fair amount of high-budget 3DS games.

                            The thing is, I really don't care. I'm going to buy the games anyway, and they're going to be fantastic games, despite their crappy and outdated graphics.

                            EDIT: And yes I agree that the graphics could be updated before the release, but I don't think they will be. Remember the 3DS? It's not the final version, it won't be that ugly, but it really was.

                              I like the graphics in the games, though they could still use some work, luckily they have time to do that as they said it's not the final result. Seeing this game makes me even more eager for when remakes finally come around

                              Though it's much more cartoony than Kh 3D and Ocarina of Time it still has it's own special charm.

                                These things should be in Pokemon X and Y

                                When you go into the Union room instead of just having an Avatar appear on the other perspons screen actually have your Player Character Appear and be able to walk around
                                (And Maybe allow some form of Co-Op Hub From there Similar to how DQ9 Had Co-Op)

                                  This should have happened back in gen 4. To say that I'm excited for this is an understatement.

                                    I like what the graphics are, it's not as good as other games but still good, I think they could improve if it wasn't tile movement though xD

                                    I don't care if the graphics could be "better"; I think they're cute as is and fit the style of the main Pokemon games while still becoming completely 3D.

                                      The graphics are great, you can't deny that. They're awesome!
                                      BUT! This is a pokemon game people. When have graphics really mattered to us?

                                      I've been playing with these kind of graphics in my head since Pokemon Yellow Version and I can say without any fear of being wrong, that I'm not the only one. What we see and what other people see is completely different.

                                      I'm not so concerned about the graphics, but about the pokemon.

                                      What are they going to be like this generation? If we have them as snow cones, trash bags, gears and lamps, is there really going to be something better in the upcoming generation?

                                      Maybe one or two pokemon, yes, just like it always happens, but I honestly don't want to see a toothbrush pokemon or a make up case one. Really...

                                        My first! but hopefully not last thread in the Pokemon X and Pokemon Y Forums xD

                                        Is anybody else going to miss the sprites? The 3D figures are cool and have more capabilities but will you miss sprites? They were introduced as animated in Gen V for B/W/B2/W2 but they're already gone! If you could would you like them back in the next game? Or are you glad that they're gone? I, as a spriter, am personally going to miss them, they were simple, yet cool, clean, but rough, the capabilities a few pixels had to produce that image that was desired, of course, pixels are still used, but it's not the same as when you're limited to size and color, cleaning outlines, shading and overall everything else, I do like the figures but I sure am going to miss sprites, I'd like to see someone do a gallery where the pokemon are made into sprites :) xD Discuss! xD

                                        I can't wait to see the graphics properly in 3D, 2D screens are doing the textures and the edges no justice at all.

                                          While I agree graphics could be better, like Super Mario 3D land, OoT and MK7, they really don't need to be. Pokemon isn't a game that has thrived due to eye candy, it's thrived because it's really fun! This is GF's first try at 3D, and i'd say they've done a darn good job at it. It is a nice art style for a Pokemon game! And they'll probably get better closer to release! n_n
