Interestingly enough, unless you catch a Magikarp at the Safari Zone, or in two or less Pokéballs, it's actually cheaper to buy his in R/B/Y.

    I'd much prefer that, Milotic is soo much better than Gyarados IMO. Feebas is much harder to find too especially in RSE ;;

    The funny thing is that it is the opposite in Unova. Feebas are all over Route 1, while Magikarp are rarer.

    Yeah what Vapor said. If it's anything like Unova it'll probably be Magikarp again lmao.

    Ooh, they must have made it easier from being near to impossible in Hoenn.

    I hope they don't include any Pokémon that are as rare as Feebas in Gen III/IV. It took me hours to find Feebas in those gens.

    Also 4000th post woot!

      Yeah, I hope finding Feebas will be.. a little less unbearable like in BW!

      Speaking of which, what -don't- you guys want to see in X&Y? Any hopes on that?

      Well, I guess my only hope is that I don't want wild encounters to be cinematic,or else... that can get annoying. xD At least, I hope there will be a function to toggle cinematics on and off.

        Pardon my ignorance, but what do you mean by cinematics?
        I have never had a Gyarados in my team on my first time through a game, accept for g/s/c obviously. I'd be interested in maybe training a Gyarados in X/Y.
        Now, for the new topic.
        I do not want another c-gear or poketch or whatever, but I know everybody else does so I guess it'll happen.
        I do not want the game to be as short as Pokémon b/w/b2/w2 (I know that doesn't exactly fit the topic)

        Oh for me I want them to be the size of B/W. :x Mainly because I was really happy with the size of those games and enjoyed them greatly! I'm not sure how much longer it could be, other than a larger post-game reallyyy.

          I have always hoped for a game that went back to another region like G/S/C and their remakes, but I highly doubt it would happen. Just a nice thought.

          We don't know much so there's still the possibility of visiting another region, I loved the idea of collecting 16 badges in GSC.

            I donno, I think it possible that we'll be able to revisit Unova since the 5th gen ended so abruptly. So, you don't see a difference in the length of d/p/pt or r/s/e vs b/w b2/w2?

            The 5th Gen lasted for about three years, which is equal to how long the 2nd Gen lasted for. The generation as a whole may have seem to have gone by rather quickly, but I don't think that warrants Unova being attached to the X and Y region. B2W2 still feels fresh off the market, and story-wise, they did as much as they could with the Unova region with Black and White and B2W2 combined without it getting boring or tedious.

            From a location standpoint, it's also noteworthy that Unova was based off of New York/US while this new region seems to take place in France/Europe.

            The Pokemon website have updated with the starters typing, not the evolutions but it may mean they could be revealing more soon? They have also gave details on the Xerneas & Yveltals weight & height.

            What if there are two new regions rather than one? Then it would mean collecting 16 badges in Pokémon X and Y, which would make the game very lengthy. xD

            I think this is a good sign that as Japan releases new information, the US and the other international markets will liekly follow suit. The height and weight information of Xerneas and Yveltal has been known since the first scan of this month's CoroCoro leaked late last week. With this month's issue of CoroCoro now out, it makes sense that the official site would now update their information. At least, that's what I'm thinking.

              Speaking of CoroCoro, are we to believe that perhaps new info of Pokemon X&Y may be revealed next month?

              I'm sure they'll have something, it will have been a month by the time we get the next issue and they're likely candidates to have new information for us.

                I'd say so. I always look forward to checking to see what they're releasing n_n omg this is so much more exciting than B2W2!!!

                I wouldn't mind cinematics in Pokemon battles. u_u It seems to be something new and innovative as far as handheld Pokemon games go, so why not?

                And as far as next month's issue of CoroCoro, I'm fully convinced that we should at the very least learn new information about Xerneas and Yveltal, and also the starters' evolutions. I'm already dying to know both of these already! XD

                  I like the idea of cinematics! We should use the greater graphics of the 3DS to its full potential. I hope Pokemon just rocks the socks off this console and defines what future games will be like...

                    I swear I just saw this post after posting the above.

                    Also, on the other discussion, two regions would be cool. It's be kinda cool if the different versions of games started in opposite ends of the map; Japan versions start in the east, and North American in the west, maybe Europe in the middle...but this would be difficult to do smoothly. They could have both regions set up like they kept weak Pokémon in Route 1, and the challenge is the Trainers on the Route, like HG/SS.

                      I've been wondering about something. You know how these pokemon games have 'nicknames' right? I'm going to quote a certain logic I've found:

                      Quote:
                      Back in the early 00's, generations were very commonly referred to by names coined by the fans. The Generation I, whose main versions' naming schemes were colors was called the Color Generation. A similar logic was applied to Generation II, otherwise known as the Metal Generation. When time for a Pokémon game on GBA came -- and actually prior to the announcement of Ruby and Sapphire -- the Pokémon Advance placeholder for the then soon-to-be-announced games gave its name to the Generation III, possibly backed by the newly announced anime series too; the Advance Generation. Around that time, generations started to be referred to by just their number, and nicknames fell into obscurity.

                      Despite the fact that numbers were fully used at that point, in 2009 the name '3D Generation' was given to Generation IV in Bulbapedia. In a similarly shy fashion, Generation V's moniker became the Monochrome Generation.
                      What shall we call Generation VI? The 3D generation? The Letter generation? Something of the sort?

                      Probably something along the lines of the Alphabetic Generation! Or Chromosome Generation... Genetics Generation? Simplistic Generation? I'M NOT SURE. :( But I dunno, if not any of that it'll probably be Letters like you said. :3
