    Well, it's nice to have a new gen. Shitty (though not unexpected) of Nintendo to release it on 3DS and force everyone to buy a new fucking system though. I suppose we should count ourselves lucky that they at least gave us Black/White 2 on DS Classic.

    I'm going to buy it, but dear god.

    I'm going to miss the sprites something fierce. And buying a 3DS? Fucking fuck, no.

    Yeeeaaaaaah, not a fan of fully 3D renders. I'm a sprites-man, and I don't see why they would change the series that dramatically even if they did want to work with the 3DS's capabilities more fully.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it, guys.

    That said, I've already chosen the fire fox.

    Guys. Seriously.

    Blue/Red/Green was Game Boy.
    Yellow/Gold/Silver/Crystal was Game Boy Colour.
    3rd Gen on GBA.
    4th AND 5th Gen on DS.

    Basically, the most Pokemon games -two entire generations - were on the DS. That's unprecedented to this point. We got more out of the DS than any other handheld. How can any of you actually say with a straight face that you expected another DS focused generation?

    Anyway.

    As for the news, this actually excites me quite a bit. This could be a big step for Pokemon. But given the close time between Black and White 2 and X and Y, I'm thinking it'll be another iteration and these two games will basically serve to test what works and what doesn't for the second 3DS generation.

    The only part of the trailer that I didn't like was that it appears you can still only move in four directions. I was really hoping when I started the trailer that you'd be able to move in eight, but alas it seems unlikely.

    Sad about about the sprites, regardless... =\

    Oh well, gives me an excuse to get a 3DS for Monster Hunter 4, since there's two games I want to play on it, now.

    I outright said it wasn't unexpected, bro. Doesn't mean I'm any happier about having to drop close to three hundred fucking dollars on a 3DS.

    I am so glad I stayed up to watch this announcement live.

    Black and white disappointed me so much, though 2 did change my opinion on 5th gen.

    This though, sprite or no sprites I'm going to play them to death.

    It helps already owning a 3DS XL.



    More like 200 and that's new.

    They were around 250-ish the last time I checked (a few months ago when I was looking into getting another regular DS to use for trading my shit back and forth). If the price has gone down some that's good. My own DS is busted now anyway, so I guess this will end up being as good an excuse as any to just invest in the next gen.

    Not really too hot on buying a 3DS but damn if it doesn't look good. And it seems that one can encounter the old pokemon again, which is definitely a plus and the main reason why I dropped Black and White halfway through and didn't even bother with Black and White 2.

    That said, am still not too hot on the new starters. Hopefully, their evolutions are better. Are they out yet?

    Am also a bit disappointed that they persist in only giving three starters as an option. Wish they would give 5 or more finally, or even better, like ten, covering most types.

    Serious mistake. The Unova Pokedex is greatly expanded to cover previous generations from the very beginning - I encountered Riolu, Azuril, Koffing, Growlith, and Mareep, just off the top of my head, and they were within the first three towns you can access.

    Black and White 2 is a vast improvement over the first Black and White.

    I got my 3DS for about 160 or 180 before tax (can't remember which anymore) at Staples, and that was back in November.

    I got my 3DS (used) for 120 a month ago. The price is dropping.

    Did people honestly hope the new games to be released on a fucking nine year old system? At a certain point, be happy that developers are moving to a handheld with more power.

    The fuck do we need more power for? It's Pokemon. I play it for the gameplay, not to "ooh" and "aah" at the graphics.
