Re: Pokemon Direct 1/8

I'm reeeal hesitant about X & Y. I stopped playing at Diamond and Pearl, and skipped Black/White 1 & 2 because I didn't like the generation that much. I was almost tempted to get White 2 because I heard it has a lot of classic pokemans to the point that even someone in the game gives you a dratini (my 3rd favourite pokemon) so I almost got drawn in, then I saw that the price is still expensive, so I skipped them.

I'm betting X & Y will be 39.99 in the US, but I might be able to get it for my birthday, so that's alright. I'm not digging the camera angle -at all-. It feels very pressured, close, and hard to see things around you a lot of the time, which triggers my claustrophobia a noticeable amount, but the battle scenes look Stadium-ish, which is cool.
Isn't it a shiny Dratini?

When they came out with Pokemon Black and White 2 and they had the same pokemon... *table flip*

Re: Pokemon Direct 1/8

Am I the only one here that thinks pokemon has become a franchise zombie that continues to be wildly anticipated for every new game that comes out on the sole premise that it has become self-sustaining rather than new gameplay mechanics?
The 3D is cool and all, but I played pokemon from the very start and it's just become meh to me content wise. The show is crap. The movies are meh and the games took THIS long just to get a fully 3D game even though the 3ds has been around for close to two years now. Pokemon is the COD of handhelds. What I mean by that is every new game has minimal gameplay or story improvements upon the last one and whenever a new game does come out everyone is all like "Oh my god this is the best game in the franchise! The naysers are just genwunner retards! You have to buy this game!" and only every what five years or such does the franchise actually come out with something worthwild.

What I'm getting at is-
"You have to buy this game. It's like the old pokemon games, but it has new pokemon and is 3D"
"Why don't I just buy one of the older games"
"Cause it has new pokemon and is 3D!"
"What is the point in new pokemon games when you can never catch them all? Isn't that abandoning the roots of the franchise that you could 'gotta catch them all'?"
"3D!"
"Isn't 3D just a gimmick to try and distract buyers away from content? Isn't 3D abused to death just as a ploy to get more money often times while ignoring quality in franchises?"
"3D!"
"Are there any other gameplay improvements over black white 2?"
"Yes. . . 3D!"

Never played it on the GameCube, did we?

Hmm. So those are the new starters? Fennekin looks amazing. I bet it's the fastest -- Fire-type starters are usually the fastest.

(And apparently Fennekin's Japanese name is Fokko. Good job, translation team!)

I mean the gameplay in pokemon lags several years behind the rest of the industry and even though they had full capability of making a 3D black white game they didn't.


Ooh boy. I wonder how long until furries want to Fokko new starters.

It's pretty pointless to even talk about it. We know it's coming. There are freaks out there who get boners over Thomas the Engine (Not even fucking kidding). You think cute little Pokemon would be spared? A FOX especially.

And I looked up Fokko... I got a mathematician. :I

Watched the video. (Mienfoo used Aura Sphere - awesome!)

The other two unnamed Pokemon must obviously be the version mascots - look at the shape of the X and Y in the logo.

Re: Pokemon Direct 1/8

If they made any greater version differences than it would force people to buy both. I don't think that's what they want to achieve by making brother/sister games. Asking for fewer Pokemon is like asking for fewer weapons in any standard RPG. I actually never understood the too many Pokemon complaint. It just never made sense to me.
As for post game stuff...I really don't know what else they could give besides the tons of extra stuff most people are likely to pass over. Though if they put two regions in one game each time, that'd be cool. And it's not a hard thing if the Gameboy Color and DS pulled it off.

FA search already returns over 140+ results for "fennekin", split roughly along the usual lines of FA ratings.

DeviantArt already has over 800+.

It's only been, what, a few hours? Not even a day?

PS: Fennekin's German name is "Fynx". Best. Name. Ever.

I've got no problem at all with R34 if it's drawn well and isn't a fetish I don't like/is illegal. I think I worded that comment badly. I just don't think we should be surprised. I mean let's face it, the nastiest most desperate ones of the forum still have access to a home computer. I've actually gotten PM's asking if I can or plan to smut up Fennekin.

Fewer pokemon.
Greater version differences.
More post-game stuff.

Nah, it's not his fault.

Truth is, you don't fix what isn't broken just because some people grow tired of the series. Pokemon isn't CoD; it isn't a pollutant in the system and it doesn't harm the RPG genre. It's just a still-profitable, still-enjoyable cash cow.

Oh I know there are people who "grow out" of Pokemon but I just want to smack people who says it's the same game.

Prove me wrong. What real major improvements other than visual has the pokemon franchise gone through in the last five years.

Hardcore pokemon gamers all you have to do is jingle your keys and they go "oh! OH! A SHINY! A SHINY! MUST HAVE!"

Welcome to video games where individuals who aren't obsessed about the latest game in the franchise and play video games for fun aren't "real" fans.

But seriously, prove me wrong. What real major improvements other than visual has the pokemon franchise gone through in the last five years.
