A Pokémon X and Y demo is currently being showcased at the Pokemon Game Show event in Tokyo, Japan.
Is it the video, or is the game not as smooth as previous games? It looks like the frame rate takes 5-10 drops when the Pokémons are battling. Running in the overworld seems fine. In fact, riding on Gogoat's pre-evo looks really fast! Even riding on Rhyhorn was faster than I thought.
I'd assume it's just the video.
I'd put my money on a bit of both. Bear in mind there is no way this is the final build and they love stressing in trailers that "game footage not final". Could be a wait a see situation. Also if you look at some of the Luigi's mansion 2 trailers the framerate is horrible but in the full game its perfectly fine. So we'll find out come release :)
On the Serebii.net page Skiddo and Gogoat are two different classification of pokemon. Skiddo is a "Ride Pokemon" whereas Gogoat is a "Mount Pokemon". Perhaps different Pokemon have their own advantages when being ridden?
There is really no point picking up faults in performance when the game is still in beta.
Getting so pumped for this game
Dem graphics :D
