Thats good and all. Just wish the new Pokeman designs weren't so ugly.

Opinions opinions lol. This gen designs have been awesome overall. One of the best imo



Around the Network

I don't think the designs are bad. In Generation V I couldn't find a team of 6 Pokémon I liked (and I hated all the starters). This Generation is alright, there are some very interesting and unique Pokémon designs here (the names suck though).

The Pokémon I like: Lycanroc (Midnight Form), Decidueye (seriously, what kind of name is this?), Alolan Raichu, Mimikyu, Salandit (curious about its evolution though), Tapu Koko, Passimian, Wishiwashi (and his awesome school form), Oricorio (Baile style), Minior (curious if it has an evolution though), Kommo-o, Lunala, Togedemaru (I wonder if it has an evolution), Alolan Sandslash & Ninetales, Alolan Exeggutor, Pikipek (need to see its final evolution though), Pyukumuku (need to see possible evolution though)

Terrible Pokémon designs: Gumshoos and Bewear.

Dang, the most pre-sold Nintendo game ever, and not just Pokemon? Sounds mighty impressive. Sounds like there's a good chance it'll def sell better than X/Y. It'll be fun seeing where the numbers end with this game.

Some look cool indeed but then some....

On topic though, that is fantastic news for the Pokemon brand, PoGo made a lot of people hungry for a real Pokemon game and Sun and Moon is shaping up to be the game everyone wants to play.

(please fix the typo in the OP though man, Ninteno, hurts mah eyes!)



Fancy hearing me on an amateur podcast with friends gushing over one of my favourite games? https://youtu.be/1I7JfMMxhf8

Gumshoos is actually a smart concept. Based off of a "gumshoe", which is a detective. Its stance also gives it that detective-like appearance.

 

Only problem is everyone thinks he's a Trump clone lol

XY was the lowest selling game in the series. It sold 10 million less than BW. 

Also, the ash-greninja thing was very popular. They wouldn't put it in if they hated it. People enjoyed the XYZ anime so they decided to bring it in. Not like he's as good as regular greninja. I'd rather see ash-greninja than an uber upgrade to greninja(similar to how charizard got 2 amazing megas).

@bolded about legendaries- many of the games focused on the legendary and bonds with Pokemon. I'm surprised how a fan of Pokemon can somehow not care about that at all. it's focused upon so much throughout the games(especially XY, which is how mega evolutions came)

...I have absolutely no idea where you got those XY numbers from. It sold 4 million on its first weekend (4 million is 10 million less than BW), and Nintendo just announced it surpassed BW in sales. Also, the 3DS is the lowest handheld install base Nintendo's ever had.

About Ash-Greninja... it might be popular among 6-year-olds. That doesn't make it any less stupid. It's an alternate form of Greninja that was "created by the bond between him and Ash" (the corny shit already starts there) and supposedly makes them both connect feelings to each other or some crap. It was stupid in the anime, and it's even more stupid in the games. Also, lol "not as good as regular Greninja"... that thing's instantly going to be banned to uber, and maybe even more.

And the legendary thing... well, may I explain more on that.

In the first two generations, the legendaries were just mythical creatures that were there minding their own business. They weren't shoehorned into the story at all. Then, from the third generation all the way to the start of the sixth generation (XY), the main cover legendaries were always meddled into the story, because the villain team always had something to do with them and it was up to you to stop them.

But in OR/AS, you're literally halted midway through your adventure to go to some random island and capture Latios/Latias because it "likes" you or some shit and you're its "chosen one", and then at the end of the game you're rewarded with the thing that lets you fly on them because of your "amazing bond" with them despite the fact that, if you were like me and didn't give a crap about them, you had them boxed from the moment you captured them and never looked back. Then of course there's the Delta Episode, where it's revealed that there's a traditional civilization that had Rayquaza as a sort of guardian, and every once in a while there was a certain person from that place that was chosen by Rayquaza to do some shit... until OR/AS come along and some random 10-year-old kid that's not even from Hoenn (let alone the place where those people lived) is chosen, just because.

All that stuff is just stupid. Mega Evolutions were fine in XY story-wise because they never specified your bond with a certain Pokémon, therefore not making things dumb - it gets dumb when they specify a certain Pokémon and it's one you don't give a crap about and only obtained because the game forced you to.

lol you remind me of the SM3D World haters when the initial trailers released. You have extremely nitpicky criticisms, wait until the game arrives lol.

Also the XY anime is one of the best animes out of the Pokemon series (barring championship episode), and I think Ash-Greninja is a great concept. And so does many other adults, not just 6-year-olds like you claim. Calm down with your assumptions boi.

My criticism comes from the fact that Pokémon has changed too much and doesn't feel like itself anymore, and that much is obviously true because the series does have a new director and he has stated he's trying to implement his own vision and interpretation on the franchise.

One might like it or not (I absolutely despise it, and I'm definitely not alone on that feeling), but denying that Pokémon has changed is denying the truth.

Also, Ash-Greninja is stupid.

What is Pokemon meant to be? In case I'm wrong Pokemon is simply the term for Pocket Monsters. it has always changed. New types, IV's, EV's, Mega evolution, Z-moves, double battle, 2d to 3d, new villians, etc etc. If we kept the pokemon you envisioned, this game would be nowhere near the success it is having. Leaving Japan was a great decision for Gamefreak. they could've done more with france, but for Hawaii it's obvious they paid attention. the world is huge, we can now have travel pokemon, and Pokemon snap has "returned" by being a new feature. If you ask me, this change is great.

 

Also, idc if you think ash-greninja is stupid. you're entitled to your own opinion, right? It's great that you can simply dislike it without causing a war.
