Pokemon X and Y pitfalls and payoffs

So when Pokemon X and Y was announced this past week, the initial shock boosted the spirits of some and annoyed others. The squabbles of genwunners and Pokémon noobs are likely to continue as always, but will a 3D Pokémon capture all of the expectations Pokemon fans have had since the initial release of Red and Blue? (3DS, Culture, Pokemon X and Y)

Pokemon X & Y has sparked my interest in the series again. The change could have came earlier though.

I would love to get a Pokemon game that has an alternate ending and player choice, that changes how the story progresses. Maybe it just me.

I am glad they are finally updating the style of the game. This makes me curious to see a Pokemon game on Wii U.

Pokemon X and Y will be Huge. Probably the biggest game that will come to 3ds , still to early to say that , But a 3D pokemon game is like the Most Desired Handheld game in existence. Although Smash Bros is announced for 3DS.

It's not a big enough leap in my opinion, but I'm happy that it sparked your interest.

Custom trainers would be icing on the cake for me.

I can't stand alternate endings. It's lazy. They couldn't figure out a true ending so they use all their trash ideas as " other endings"...= fake replay value.

If I have to play a game more than once to get the Full experience, The Dev's did something wrong.

I'm getting a 3DS because of this game. And a good Pokemon game will probably be my reason of getting the Wii U as well. >___>

is anyone else disappointed by the graphics of this game? It looks like black and white 2.5. This looks borderline DS and I'm sure the 3DS is more powerful that this.
Waddy101  +   862d ago
It probably is a bit more powerful but not by a lot, you have to remember that this is their first attempt at a 3D pokemon game so the graphics won't be as good as they can be.
Kingofwiiu  +   862d ago
First of all the game isn't finished , Second of all maybe they're deliberately trying to make it look like old pokemon Games but 3D. Second of all you can never judge 3DS graphics off blown up Youtube footage , You have to see it on thr 3DS screen where it makes much more sense.

By the time the game is finished I'm sure it will look beautifull on 3DS. But Like most RPG's the graphics have to take a hit in order to create a massive 3D world. Then te Graphics come to life when you engage in a battle.

Like the tales games for example. The overworld isn't even Sized right, a Village is like a tiny House, when you walk into that House you enter a massive village.

The maps are pretty large. And besides, the graphics are bright and colorful. The battle animations will probably look a little nicer as well.

Gamefreak has already confirmed the graphics in the trailer are not final.

They also confirmed the game will push the 3DS to its maximum. You have to remember this game is still well in the development stage. By release it should be the highest graphical game on the 3DS and if not I'l be disappointed, but will still buy it for the storyline of course.

I quite like the new starters, i don't think they look stupid.
AusRogo  +   862d ago
The last Pokemon game I played was Ruby. After that I couldn't stand half the new pokemon so I didn't bother with the series anymore. .. but this, I love the style. Will check it out when it releases.

I'm liking the look of the games. The areas we've seen look pretty good, the new battle animations look pretty good (I can imagine it's going to be kind of like Dragon Quest now) and the Pokemon we've seen so far look a lot better than 5th gen (I just wish we could delete B&W from the world and have X & Y as 5th instead).

Whoa if this game is as big as black and white were (13 million copies sold) and with the new ssb, the 3ds could totally rock

Hey Im not saying for the main series but I would love a pokemon game where you have some control over your pokemons attack..kinda like the Mario and Luigi series where if your timing is right you can give extra damage when attacking and block some damage while defending...a pokemon game where u control their movements it oo much to hope for I guess..
kirky12  +   861d ago
It's a little hard to implement this on a game with turn based multiplayer. Personally I don't think that's right anyway...
Browdy1990  +   862d ago
Hi there, I just found a website wich lets people download the Beta (Still Buggy) versions of both pokemon x and y! They are used for making guides and strategy's! My friend and I both made about 10+ guides already and still going! If your intrested check them out here: http://pokemon-x-and-y.blog...
