Don't have a link, but I'm positive it was confirmed by developers awhile back. The only problem is they haven't even released a title yet, but it will take place between 999 and VLR (if you've played both you'll realize why). I think they are working on other projects at the same time, but if I'm not mistaken they were suppose to release more info by years end. Doubt that will happen now, but you'll know when that happens as the series has a strong following.
Playing Y first and am avoiding as much information as I can, not using any guides or help, and using new Pokemon only. The last part I can see causing problems if quite a few change types. I'm still only early into the game, but I found out through a friend that Fletching's final evo is Fire/Flying. Kind of sucks as I picked Fennekin, but oh well. All part of the fun of going in blind for the most part.
Only got just a little past the first gym before focusing all my attention on one of the hockey games.
Is there a way to turn the roller blades off permanently? I don't mind them, but they are annoying in tight places. I did notice if you press down on the D-pad it will remove them, but you have to walk using the D-pad for it to stay that way. As soon as I go to use the analog stick.
I didn't really pay TOO much attention to the leaks and information Nintendo released leading up to pre-launch. I'm attempting to build my team consisting of new Pokemon only. This will be interesting as I don't know all of the new Pokemons types yet. That and some Pokemon I haven't seen for ages and forgetting what type they are. All part of what makes it fun. Hopefully nothing important can be missed.
Does anyone else feel like the movement is really non-fluid? I don't really understand the need for the grid-based layout anymore ... all it does is make the game feel more antiquated than it actually is.
I was going to mention this. It isn't the end of the world, but the movement wasn't nearly what I thought it would be.
Solid all around so far though. Right off the bat you can notice a difference in visuals and style from last gen. That first battle it was just like... woah.... :D
Picking up Y tomorrow after work. Amazon says my copy of X shipped today, but is still in BC and I live in AB - most likely won't receive it for a few days. I also got the X/Y strategy book to have something to read alongside while playing the game, but it seems they took more orders then they could fill and won't get a copy for a few weeks :(.
Tomorrow will be fun. I have a few hours now to sleep between doing a back to back, picking up Y after work, then starting to play Y and set up my Kindle Fire I received today. Tomorrow will be a good day!
