Yep, Pokemon X and Y are coming. And it just felt like Gen V started. In fact, it's only been two years since the original Black and White were released in the US. And now Gen VI is coming upon us this October. Now I know what I'm getting for my birthday this year! Just like last year, I'm getting a Pokemon game it seems.
I kinda felt uneasy about having a new generation coming so soon, but then I actually watched the trailers, and was quite surprised with what I saw.
This is going to be the first Pokemon game that is completely 3D, and it is going to be for the 3DS. From the looks of the trailer, the game looks pretty good. It seems the region, which, as far as I know, is unnamed, is based off Europe, as there is a structure based off the Eiffel Tower.
There are also new move animations, which seem to be more exaggerated. Take Magikarp here. He doesn't seem to enjoy taking an attack from a Chespin. I have no idea what attack it is, probably Solarbeam, but I doubt it would have it. The Pokemon also have their own animations when they get hurt and stuff as well. The Pokemon went from being sprites to models.
Ah yes, the three new starters. Now I don't think those types are going to be official, but those could be good types. Fennekin the fox seems to be the most popular, but if it ends up being a Fire/Fighting type, I am NOT picking it. Chespin seems to break the tradition of reptilian Grass types, and it looks cool I guess. Froakie is probably my least favorite right now, but it's all right. Can't wait to see official art for the final evolutions.
Ah yes, the legendary Pokemon, Xerneas and Yvetal. Xerneas seems to be similar to Sawsbuck or Virizion, and Yvetal seems to be similar to Lugia(believe me, I've seen a lot of fan art). These legendaries look pretty awesome, but I seem to be a fan of Yvetal more.
So am I getting Pokemon X/Y? Yes, of course. Which one am I getting? Not sure, maybe I'll get both. It all depends on version exclusives, as I plan out my teams before getting the game. So far, I'm betting on Y right now. I can't wait for October, which is when my birthday is, so it'll be Black 2 all over again with the birthday situation. But this is going to be the game that will boost 3DS sales, and will make a 3DS worth owning. WHY DOES OCTOBER HAVE TO BE 10 MONTHS AWAY!?!?!?!?!?!?! Speaking of releases, this is the first game that will have a simultaneous release worldwide. That's pretty awesome, ain't it?
And this ends my blog.
