At first I was going to report this, but given that we take rumors from Kotaku and NeoGaf just because someone said so I'm approving this. Fair play

AztecFalcon1313d ago

4chan's /v/ has had some leaks in the past. At this point, it's as credible as someone saying "our source close to the project" or something to that effect.

Canary1313d ago

Where do you think NeoGaf and Kotaku get their "scoops?" They're always just copying random garbage from 4chan.

AztecFalcon1313d ago

If most of the new Pokemons are babies and new evos then I don't really care about this game anymore. That's really stupid.

ABizzel11313d ago

Unfortunately I'm with you. I don't mind new evolutions, but babies can eat dirt.

Only 99 new, and most being evos and babies means what 49 new max.

Thankfully this is still just a rumor and there's a chance more will come out.

I will say I'm glad the series is focusing heavily on new type combinations, but I don't get the typing of the Legendary Pokemon Psychic / Rock (didn't see that coming, but I guess they're using the Gems in the antlers for Rock type, looks Steel / Psychic). Ghost / Flying (again not my first choice, looks more Dark / Flying).

The card based legendary pokemon is just too much. What a dumb basis, however, I'm excited by the animals they're based on Cobra, Tiger, T-Rex, Peacock.

Still getting it, but don't care for some of the design choices. Trainer level is something I always thought about, but it seems like it's going to be a hinderance unless you level up quickly as a trainer.

I don't mind change, but I don't think this is the right way. We'll see.

I actually think it's better to do less brand new ones. People are always complaining that the new Pokemon are stupid or unoriginal. At least when it's a new evolution, it looks somewhat similar to a Pokemon you like.

I'm hoping to give Ditto an evolution somehow.

ABizzel11312d ago

Ditto? It doen't need an evolution, as it can change into any Pokemon thanks to Imposter ability. And evolution would do nothing for it, since it's not meant to fight in it's base form.

One thing I loved about Black and White was the fact that you could only catch new Pokemon. I know a lot of people hated that, but to me it forced you to learn new strategies and try new things out. What's the point of a new generation if you only want to use the same old Pokemon gen. after gen.

I know they're running out of ideas, but there are tons of animal species to be inspired from and there are types that are seriously lacking in numbers, diversity (Physical ATK, Special ATK, Tanks, Speedsters), and type combinations. On top of that a new typing would add another layer to the battle system as well as update previous typings and bring a larger number of new Pokemon.

What, Pokemon has color? When?!

Root1313d ago (Edited 1313d ago )

Not liking the sound of some of these changes

Some of them you think

"Oh well least they are evolving the game and changing things up"

but then others it's like

"No, no and no....this is a step back for the franchise"

I mean not even being able to change your name...come on

Plus the time traveling stuff seems riduclous...I'm going to love how they add that into the series. Legendary Pokemon who travel through time...fair enough but not a wrist watch.

R_A_LEE201313d ago

Yeah, I starting to have some sense of truth about this rumour until I read about the time travel stuff.

R_A_LEE201312d ago

Thinking about it though, the plot would similar to that of another famous Nintendo time travel story.

If true, (which i now very much doubt) they might as well call it Pokemon X/Y: Wristwatch of Time.

r211313d ago

When they said significant changes, they really meant it! That is a whole ton load of changes. Some of which I do like and some just strange to add. Guess we'll have to wait to see.
