Hope all these new features will keep me interested. BW1 bored me to death and BW2 were a step-up, but I still haven't finished it. Just sitting there on my games shelf.

Hopefully Global Link becomes more useful and Japanese exclusive Dream World pokemon will be a thing of the past.

#366 Posted by Sora278 (1495 posts) -

All I have to say is if they are going to cut off Gen V online almost completely then they better make Gen VI's GTS amazing or I will be mad.  For one thing make searching a little easier like see who wants this kind of pokemon, delete the pokemon that request Reshiram lvl 9 and under or similar, and seeing more than a few trades.  I hate having to go through every little option to see most of them.

Now I wonder where all the money goes...
Second best selling video game franchise, millions of units sold per game, the TCG seems to be going strong since they keep releasing new cards, and they can't keep BW(2)'s Global Link servers running simultaneously with XY's servers for more than a few months. All those millions of dollars can't be gone with merchandise, advertisement, salaries, maintenance, shipping, and international events... or can it?
Hmm... This looks like a job for Professor Hershel Layton!

they have no reason to keep supporting it though, at least not features like freaking dream world and C-gear skins.

New Japanese trailer

basically a Japanese version of what was revealed during E3, but with new footage and awesome in-game music.

Finally, a pokemon game with music not limited by the hardware. *____*

Japanese exclusive as of now. The Gold 3DSLL are even more exclusive as they can only be bought in Pokemon Center stores (as of now... hopefully).

#373 Posted by sonictrainer (15185 posts) -

Hitotsuki

This is "Hitotsuki" (Japanese Name), a Ghost/Steel type Pokemon.

#374 Posted by BrunoBRS (73263 posts) -
saw the trailer and the special covers (wish i could just apply the skin on my blue one). golden one has a cooler decal, but not a fan of golden hardware :P

http://pokebeach.com/news/0713/hitotsuki-3.jpg

It looks better when it's sheathed, IMO. Can humans use it? :P It would be nice if it has a creepy backstory (like most Ghost-type pokemon do). Maybe it was born when a fallen knight's soul was transferred into his sword?  OR whoever uses this cursed sword will die a slow and painful death? Idk. I need more time to grow on it.

It could be like Katana's sword from DC Universe where her sword contains the soul of her husband. Maybe it does have a soul transferred to the sword.

Because it is literally just a sword.  If it stayed sheathed maybe I would be fine with it but it does not even have a face and why does it have a sheath in the first place if it comes off and not part of it?

#382 Posted by spike6958 (4878 posts) -
Hmm, hope this isn't a turn for the worst. Aside from Mewtwo's awakened form which is completely unnecessary, the Gen 6 Pokemon have been awesome until now. I would have thought GameFreak would have learnt from the negative reaction to the Icecream and Trashbag that people dislike objects been used Pokemon. Though it's typing is pretty cool so that's a plus, lets hope this is a one off and not the start of a downward trend because they've done really well until now.

Hmm... the sword looks cool when it's sheathed, but without it... well, it's just a sword with an eye apparently. Not exactly A+ character design.

I will cry tears of joy if it has an awesome final evolution and fantastic stats to complement it's amazing typing. Steel/Ghost has 3 immunities, 8 resistances, and 2 weaknesses (1 weakness if it has Levitate, which I'm hoping).

I wonder when we're going to get its official English name. I'm calling it Excaliboo for now~

I will be disappointed if it's anything other than Hexcalibur.

It seems like it'll be a single stage, I like its design but I agree it seems a little plain unsheathed. We can also cross Steel/Ghost off the list of awesome typings that don't exist, I hope Normal/Ghost is up next.

A new Pokemon was recently revealed!


Pokémon


Honedge

  • "Honedge" is the recently revealed, new Ghost/Steel Type Pokémon.
  • Honedge can learn Swords Dance.
  • Honedge Trivia: "Honedge comes into being when a departed spirit inhabits a sword that once belonged to humans. It can use the blue cloth attached to its hilt as nimbly as an arm. If you were to carelessly take this blade in hand, you may find that blue cloth wrapping around you...draining the energy from your body!"
#399 Posted by Nintendo_Ownes7 (30917 posts) -

I was sort of right when I said that the sword was the spirit of a warrior who previously owned the sword.

#400 Posted by BrunoBRS (73263 posts) -
Honedge? really? >.>
