I already had my mind made up from the beginning that I was getting X version so I'm happy that I like the mega evolutions; I plan on getting Y so I can also get Skelp and other exclusives.

#702 Posted by spike6958 (4740 posts) -
Damn, Mega Charizard X as a Fire/Dragon is gonna be so OP.
#703 Posted by HowlingLotus (402 posts) -

AW COME ON!! First MewTwo and now this?! I already preordered Pokemon Y!! :x

I really hope I don't end up preferring every other MegaEvolutionX. I really hope we can trade the mega stones between versions.

Still a fantastic surprise!

I blindly threw my money at Nintendo to get both versions so I don't have to worry, but I do agree in the hopes we can trade mega stones between versions. Would kind of defeat the trading aspect of Pokemon which is a large part of the game.

Almost 8 more days. Gta V will tide me over for now.

I preordered Y version (based on my preference for Yveltal at the time) too. Since then, i've preferred Mewtwo X and now Megazard X. Next thing they're gonna tell me the other two are also Y versions and Megatoise X and MegasaurX end up looking so much better. :roll:

Btw, I spoiled myself and saw the final evolutions of the starters from an early release leak somewhere on the web which I shall not name. They aren't super terrible but none of them really stand out as a must-have. I might just stick with Chespin and then go with Squirtle for my Kanto starter.

Likewise. I'm pretty sure 70% of Fennekin and Froakie lovers were disappointed and Chespin fans cheered and cried with joy. I'm not really fond of the their typing. I feel two of them could have been switched for balance. My expectations were pretty high so I guess it's my fault. I felt really meh about Froakie's final evo, but I really started to love it when I saw a picture of it smiling in Pokemon Aime. :oops: I'm still planning on sticking with Froakie and Bulbasaur.

#707 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4733 posts) -

Btw, Pokemon Origins is amazing and is definitely the "mature" and action-orientated anime adaptation we've all been waiting for. I highly recommend it. Too bad it's only four episodes. I do hope each generation receives a special like this, but I doubt it.

There was one particular scene in the first episode that made me cringe...

I wouldn't want to mess with this Squirtle

Yeah, it looks amazing. Wish the actual show was like that. Hope they don't screw it up to much when they release the dub.

Chespin fans cried with joy? :lol: I have to admit, I was kinda shocked when I first saw it. It's slowly growing on me but my first reaction was definitely NOT all that positive. :P

It seems that Fennekin #3 is the bigger disappointment considering so many people liked it compared to Chespin and Froakie since the beginning.

#710 Posted by dissembled (357 posts) -
I'll probably choose Froakie and Charizard myself. Greninja looks bad***. Unsure what version I'll purchase, however. I'll wait until after release when the differences are brought to light.

I might as well but I don't know I definitely will get X version.

I've just noticed that the majority of my other forum prefers Chespin's final evo, and feel pretty "meh" about Froakie's and Fennekin's, whereas, here in Gamespot, the vast majority prefers Froakie's and are really "meh" about Chespin's and Fennekin's. :lol: These final evolutions were definitely surprising.
#714 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4733 posts) -

Those are not my favorite designs, but they're interesting. I wonder what Aromatisse's design is based of. I know the mask is based on plague doctors but everything else throws me off. :P

#715 Posted by BrunoBRS (73260 posts) -
that pokemon origins video is hilariously messed up. as for the evolutions, chespin looks horrendous. i'm going with yosuke's persona.

#717 Posted by HowlingLotus (402 posts) -

At this rate they should have added a subtitle.... Pokemon X & Y: The Mega 151

YOU GET A MEGA! AND YOU GET A MEGA! EVERYONE GETS A MEGA!!!!!!!!!!!!!1111111!!!1!!1!!1!!!1

On the topic of the final evolutions I don't think my decision to pick Fennekin has changed (almost always pick the fire starter and get the other two later anyways). I am getting both versions and am hoping we can trade early - that way I can have all 3 :).

going by your sig, red is just as dumb as ash, and still doesn't know how effectiveness works. DON'T FIRE PUNCH A WATER POKEMON, ESPECIALLY WITH YOUR FIRE POKEMON.

"It has been announced that the storage app, Pokémon Bank, is due for release in North America on December 27th. With it comes a 30 day free pass if you download and play the application before February 1st. From then on, if you wish to use the services, including Poke Transporter, you will need to pay a yearly fee of $4.99. It also confirms that you cannot have items on your Pokémon when you send it to Bank, with the items returning to your bag."

Two new Mega Evolutions have leaked

[spoiler] Mega Gengar and Mega Aerodactyal [/spoiler]

Because Gengar, like Garchomp, really needed a mega evolution.:roll:

Fvck. I was hoping to send up some items to my Y from my Black 2, like Leftovers or that extra Master Ball I have.

#724 Posted by Sora278 (1495 posts) -

Really, we get screwed on items AGAIN?  It was one thing for gen 5 when people were stocking up over the generations but come on starting from nothing is such a pain.

#725 Posted by spike6958 (4740 posts) -
Any of you guys decided on your teams yet? I've been thinking a lot about what teams I've been wanting to use but every time I see a new Pokemon it makes it harder and harder for me to choose what I want.

I know, its hard to choose a full team at this point. But I know I'm going with these pokemon for sure:

Froakie, Charmander, Tyrunt, and Litleo.

I'll throw Yveltal in there when I get it, but that obviously won't be until late in the game. No idea what to do with my last 2 slots. Fortunately I think I'll have most of the HMs covered with what I got so far, so its not like I'll need to pick stuff based on HM needs. I'm kinda tempted to go with Lucario or Garchomp cuz of mega evolutions, but maybe I should save those for EV training. You got anything you're fer sure putting on your team?

That sucks because my team and strategies are heavily based on held items....also I was hoping for a closer release date to X/Y because I have a lot to transfer from white and Black 2

Thanks for the link. In their video review, Yveltal can be seen attacking another Pokemon. The visuals were extraordinary to say the least. Suffice it to say, I think I maybe sold on the Y version.

In his defense, he was stuck in that final battle cliche where their last pokemon are also their first pokemon. :P

He acted a lot like Ash in the beginning because he was new to the pokemon world and was just learning. Fortunately, he managed to pick up the basics very quickly and became a fantastic trainer. Ash is still a disgrace for losing to a Snivy after the Sinnoh League. I doubt anyone would let that moment go. :lol:

There were some questionable moments in battles though, but I blame the fact everything had to rushed in order to be put in four episodes. They did a good job highlighting the best moments of Kanto, the music was amazing and the battles were fantastic, but I do wish it was longer. They could have easily expanded it into a season.

Anyone figure out how to use Avatars? Or is that down at the moment?

Also, let's still try to use Spoilers Tags for certain news until Saturday.
