Been a while since I posted in the Game section here, but since nobody else has posted the news yet - we are on the verge of Generation VI of Pokemon guys!
That's right, this October will be the WORLDWIDE release (which is, awesome, by the way) of Pokemon X and Pokemon Y, the new games in one of my favorite gaming franchises (and probably the one that I own the most different copies of come to think of it). There's not a whole lot known yet obviously, since it was just announced, but thanks to the announcement, and the new trailer -
- here's what we do know.
1) It'll be in full 3D on the 3DS. As much as this makes me rage in sadness because I don't have a 3DS, it was inevitable. And DEAR GOD look at that beautiful environment and animation. I'm sorry bridge scenes in Black/White, but you have been soundly surpassed. Holy. Crap.
2) Obviously, the titles are 'X' and 'Y' instead of going with colors again. I wonder what the reasoning for this is? Did they just run out of cool color type names or emeralds, or is there something in the game to tie into this? As of now, just going off of the titles, I'm thinking I'd probably get 'X' eventually, because that just sounds cooler.
3) We see the three new starter pokemon in the trailer: Chespin, who seems to be the Plant starter; Fennekin, who seems to be a Fire starter; and Froakie, who seems to be a Water starter. I'm pretty much inclined to always go with the Fire starter, but we'll see once we find out what their evolved forms are like.
4) No names for them yet, but the trailer does feature what appear to be two new Legendaries; one is a bird, who looks AWESOME, and the other is some kind of deer, who doesn't look to shabby himself.
That's basically all I got, check out that trailer guys. This is some exciting stuff.
