I just wanna see some new features.

#202 Posted by HowlingLotus (424 posts) -

Without more information I have to say I'm a little disappointed. A new Eeveelution is great - don't get me wrong, but not what I had in mind. I hope this won't be the only one added for X and Y though.

People always say that about the the goofy looking Pokemon they choose to show off first, fact is there will be plenty of cool ones in the new gen, there always is.

I like Ninfia. Not really understanding the hate. Nostalgia goggles? 

#207 Posted by Euaggelistes (1826 posts) -

The only problem I have with Ninfia is the name. All of the other Eevee evolutions share the same suffix (Jolteon, Flareon, etc.). Where in the world did Ninfia come from?:|

That might be the Japanese version of the name and the NA/Europe name could end in eon.

This is correct. The Japanese names for Glaceon and Leafeon are Glacia and Leafia.

The English name is Sylveon - serbii

#211 Posted by ANIMEguy10034 (4770 posts) -

I find it interesting how they're still keeping Sylveon's type a secret in the description of the gameplay video. Makes me wonder if its type is something new...

And the battles look absolutely gorgeous. :shock:

Just got Black 2 this morning for 15$ from Bestbuy. The games price usually stays up, so if anyone wants it, that deal will last until Monday.

I think it is Normal type.

The Japanese name is derived from nymph or fairy. The only Fairy Pokémon (Clefairy and Jigglypuff's evolution lines) are both Normal type the coloring is the same as Jigglypuff and Clefairy.

 

Which makes me think the 2nd Eeveelution is Ghost type since all the Eevee evolutions in each gen is weak against the other type.

Vaporeon is weak against Jolteon, Flareon is weak against Vaporeon, Espeon is weak against Umbreon, Leafeon is weak against Glaceon.

 

Jolteon and Umbreon are so far is the only ones that aren't weak against another Eeveelution.

but normal and ghost can't attack each other. normal doesn't work on ghost and ghost doesn't work on normal. by your logic, the other evolution would be fighting.

Die-hard fans would never criticize ANYTHING from pokemon. :P P.S.: I wanted to get Y, but Xerneas looks cooler as a legendary, maybe I'll just trade it.

on the contrary, the die-hard fans are the ones that would nitpick on the smallest things. see: star wars fans, sonic fans.

I understand why Garbodor and Vanilluxe aren't popular... Ninfia is, if perhaps not amazing, pretty inoffensive.

You're thinking of Lampent. :P

You do? Wanna fill me in? :P

I think those two are quite cool. :D

My only complaint is that they weren't too useful in terms of stats and move variety. I hope we get a few unique ones like that in Gen 6 too.

As we get closer to E3, they might be doing monthly updates on these games.

#237 Posted by moltenix (2487 posts) -

Guess which PokeFan just got a 3DS XL! :D

I've never had one of Nintendo's XL handhelds before; this thing is simply AMAZING! Pokemon XY (along with the other awesome games coming up) is gonna be so awesome on this thing! It feels great in my hands and I really like the curved and smooth edges.

#238 Posted by Thefatness16 (4672 posts) -

So Corocoro should leak anytime now, if not tonight. Hoping we'll see 2/3 new Pokemon and maybe a an Absol evo.

#239 Posted by sonictrainer (15184 posts) -

It doesn't seem like there will be much new information about X and Y in this month's Coro Coro...:(

#240 Posted by SoAmazingBaby (2766 posts) -
cant wait
#241 Posted by dissembled (357 posts) -

Can't wait until these titles are released. My last Pokemon game before my 3DS XL purchase was Silver. I'm currently playing Platinum with my XL and I must say it's quite addicting. I love Game Freak's renditions of the Pokemon series. I honestly believe that their games truly deserve the recognition they've received.

#242 Posted by Roken91 (4 posts) -

I don't know why but I get the feeling Xerneas will be Steel/Dark and Yveltal will be Fire/Dark.

I'm probably wrong but that's what types I think they look like, only time will tell.

Anyway I'll be getting Y and my starter will be Fennekin because I always pick the Fire starter (please don't turn into Fire/Fighting).

KnightSkull
I'm going with Steel/Psychic (bronzong) for Xerneas due to it's glowing and it's shinyness. For Yveltal I am going with Dark/Flying, you can't ignore it's wings for the simple basis of trying to make it a fire type.

A Pokemon isn't necessarily  a Flying-type because it has wings:

All have wings yet are not Flying-type.

Would also like to point out, for example of the opposite: Pokemon with no wings which is part flying type.

Yeah, and even...

It can even learn fly, yet has no wings.

Despite this being Gen 6, anyone else kinda worried they'll dumb things down a bit compared to the content that Black/White 2 had?

I mean, they've been doing this since forever. When the first set of games come out, there's always some cool new stuff but there always seems to be missing something that was in previous games. Once the third version comes out, that's when we really notice how lacking the originals were.

e.g. Platinum just made Diamond/Pearl look inferior. Black/White come out and although there's a lot of awesome new content, it was missing a lot of stuff that we saw in Platinum and HG/SS and the content after the E4 just wasn't there like those previous games. Black/White 2 just came out and added a significant amount of content to the originals.

This isn't gonna stop me from enjoying the crap out of Pokemon XY but imagine if they didn't follow this silly cycle.

What I'm worried about is the 3D making the game even more linear than B/W.

i'm pretty sure it's mathematically impossible to be more linear than a straight line.
#250 Posted by dissembled (357 posts) -

Thinking of purchasing White I  & Black II to tide me over before this title is released. Quick questions though if I may. I've read that Black & White II are sequels to the originals. Is this true? Is Black II not just a remake but rather, a sequel of Black I? If so, then it's obvious that Black I and Black II have different plots, correct? How about Pokemon though? Are they in anyway, different?
