I could complain that they're still using midi at this point instead of live instrumentation.
I could complain about the lack of voice acting.
I could complain about the fact that the 3DS hardware is very clearly holding this game back severely.
I could complain about all that, but...
I just can't find it in my heart to. Pokémon is FINALLY evolving, at least visually. And you know what? For this game, just this once, I'll take that. Baby steps.
Well, this is new.
