Pashford Murano assesses the possible factors for old school fans returning to the Pokemon series, and why the newly released X & Y are so appealing to Gen 1 players.
Charizard's mega evolution looks sick. Can all Pokemon evolve up to that point? Im clueless.
No, only some of them.
A solid RPG for the 3DS.
I haven't played pokemon since Gen2. The whole mega evolution thing however doesn't appeal to me. Every time I hear the term mega evolution, Digimon pops into my head. The full blown 3D world however does.
Haha I agree I wish it had a different name. Some of them look pretty cool !
Ash throwing the horns O_O
I thought it was common knowledge that Ash is a DIO fan
I'm an old fan, and if anything, it's driving me away further. I find the new Pokemon overdesigned, and a larger amount of poorly designed ones in comparison to the previous gens. I couldn't care less for the starters (same with gen 2 and 4) and I'm pretty disgusted that you get the exp share as a key item after the first gym, which gives additional free exp to every Pokemon and not a held item that shares the total exp with one. It eliminates half the game.
You can turn off the XP sharing feature. But it cuts down on a ton of the grinding which is a win in my book.
Yes it has brought me back!
Not me, not being to catch every single Pokemon over the two versions, and not being able to visit all the regions = No return for me. The day Pokemon is no longer a gimmicky cash in by Game freak/ Nintendo is the day I come back.
Just wait for Pokemon Z if you want to catch all the Pokemon...thats what I'm doing. By then they'll have all the Mega Evolutions and stuff sorted out and will add new content.
I bet even then you can't. You will have to do some daft Internet thing, or transfer them by some stupid gimmick from other versions. Or some Japan only event.
Too me it just looks like a long overdue graphic engine update with hardly anything else ground breaking. Same tired old gameplay. I rather see they scrap the whole turn based and go real-time like the Pokemon Generations game some dude is developing in his free time. Look it up.
Not me, been a massive fan since Red/Blue, pokemon was literally my life, and then i played Pokemon White... terrible game, and has tarred the image i had of Pokemon. The character design on X/Y doesn't look that good either, it just looks like the 2d versions just slapped together to make a 3d character, instead of actually making a 3d character from scratch. But that might just be the limitations of the 3ds hardware... The mega evolutions are a MASSIVE problem of mine, us original fans want an easy way to get the first starters, not for them to be ruined....
Hell yeah, my last Pokemon game was the Ruby/Emerald/Sapphire gen. Since then, the next games didnt really step their game up IMO. THIS Pokemon X/Y though, is a huge leap of from their past games. Will buy a 2DS with Pokemon X/Y as my first game :)
I'm going to get it if the third version comes out but the only thing putting me off is the Mega stuff. I wouldn't really mind if you can turn it off in your game so other trainers and yourself can't use it....like an old school styled mode. I hope it doesn't become a standard thing in the series, I hope it's just for this region. But despite that I think it looks better then Black and White
