    And the same can happen here, but either game that I get it in, I'll get that first.

    As for the legends....I'm glad they are not dragons. But they both look kinda sinister.

    Also roller blades FTW!
    I think the X one looks elegant and wise to me and it reminds me of Arceus.

    What if they are Dragons. The X one also reminds me of Dialga, who is a Dragon type.

    I personally don't like the look of the starters. They look kinda weird. But, I will probably choose Chespin or Fennekin. (Maybe not use them like Pokemon B/W2?) Anyways, I think when they are fully evolved they will be these: Chespin: Grass/Fighting Fennekin: Fire/Psychic Froakie: Water/Ground(?) Also, the two legendaries(?) I do not like the look of :P

    3dessness: The battles look good, but I don't like the overall moving. And the trainer for that matter.

    Gyms: I think there will be a Fire type and a Bug type. I think those should be confirmed. The other Gym we saw looked either Normal or Psychic.

    What I think is to happen: I know it's a long shot, but the region will look like Paris, France like they did to Unova with NYC. Also, I think Hidden Grottos make their return (Pikachu scene, not Paris one)
    Or the fire thing could be the league?

    Bonnie: Hey, Clauncher, could you do me a favour and marry my brother?
    Clauncher: What? I can understand the old man's senility, but this is just annoying.

    Bonnie: Come on, Dedenne! I want that Gym Badge!
    Clauncher: If only this wasn't a kids show.

    I think France is a great inspiration idea for the game, although I personally was hoping for something set in South America.

    The stag legendary (assuming X?) does resemble the musketeer legendaries from BW.

    If they are related, then perhaps the bird Y legendary is related to Articuno, Zapdos, and Moltres?

    I'd say that it's most likey going to be based on Paris. **** I've just creating Fake map art, haven't I?

    Would that make a ton of sense, to take one of the spotlight critters from the here and now and tie it in to a trio from seventeen years ago?

    The one time they did introduce an actual "trio master", its three underlings were only a generation old.

    Honestly, my first thought was Pachirisu when I first saw Chespin.

    I have to say, I love the graphical style they're using for this.

    Given that the games seem to be DNA themed, it wouldn't surprise me if Deoxys gets at least a mention.

    Just saw the news when i woke up. (Jaw drops)

    So I was right about Gen 6 but was surprised they were going 3d style a-la Super Mario RPG. Although I always imagined it. But heck, it would make since for the 3DS.
    The names took me by surprise. X and Y? No more colors. It's definitely time for change.

    The starters, meh. But the Legendaries...Damn. That Deer-like looking one quickly reminded me of a similar creature from an old anime movie i saw when I was younger. Can't remember the name of it but I remember someone cut its head off and it turned into a evil headless spirit or something..

    Can't wait. 2013 is already shaping up to be a good year already. Lots of other good things happening right now.

    Plus: Guess we don't really need a new 3D style Battle game for the Wii U now. Thought it still might be nice to see 'em all in full 1080 HD and their moves.


    "My Popularity in the Pokemon Universe continues to shine like the Aura that is with me. A full-feature movie, 4 two-parter episodes from the Sinnoh, Unova, and Kalos anime sagas, a 5-episode arc featuring my trainer Korrina, 3 appearances in the Smash Bros games and a Poke spokespearson for the Pokemon Trading Card commercials and the upcoming Pokken Fighters game. May I soon reach the fame that belongs to Pikachu"

    There's still time for them to change their minds. Although it never happened with a pokemon game, games have been delayed for different reasons in the past. If we do end up getting it in October as promised, that means just 1 year from the release of BW2.

    I much prefer having it released in October, I can't wait to play. The graphics look awesome.

    What is Chespin supposed to be? Looks like a bunny with a shell thing on its head.
    Fennekit seems like it will be a fire/psychic
    I agree with Fennekin possibly being Fire/Psychic (based on the secondary move it used against Kirlia). And, sorry if this was already referenced in the discussion, but Chespin is supposed to be a hedgehog - based on its Japanese name, no?

    I think this Generation is based off of midwestern America and Native American culture.

    -Chespin- Chestnut/ small american rodents (beaver, squirrel, chipmunk, etc.)
    -Fennekin- Red Fox (rich in Native American History)
    -Froakie- Frog/ Toad

    Legends:
    Both the legends are based off animals prominent in Native American folklore: the Vulture and the Deer/ Elk

    Isn't that supposed to be Lugia though? Well it's never mentioned in the main games but it is in side games and the 2000 movie.

    Yes that is a Female Dino Charge Red. It's a FanFic thing

    Just what types are the cover legendaries? I'm thinking the Y one might be something like Dark/Flying or Psychic/Flying and the X one... I'm less sure. They don't particularly look like typical Dragon types to me, though, and seeing as the past two main games have had Dragon covers... maybe time to break the pattern?

    Time to break the pattern. It started since Emerald and it's really tired.

    This will be the first time that Kanto hasn't appeared in any game in a generation. There's no Kanto in either Gen 5 games.

    I don't think it's really DNA themed.
    More like the Three-Dimensional Space. X, Y, and Z.

    Notice that X Legendary is land related (x-axis), while Y is sky related (y-axis).

    DNA helixes in the logos. It's your entire daily recommendation of double/triple meanings packed into two letters.

    Me too.. But to a lesser extent, I'm kinda saddened that it looks like it may end up getting the same type as my second favorite pokemon: Shiftry

    But that's basically because it showed Solarbeam and Night Slash/ShadowClaw in the Direct.

    All mysterious pokemon that will appear in a movie, but aren't revealed yet, in merchandise are called Pokemon X as far as I've known.. Also, we had the Zoroark movie that was called Phantom Champion Z for a while..

    No oldfashioned sprites make me a sad nostalgia panda.. Really sad..

    The bird can still be a dragon if they wanted it to be.. But yeah, hopefully no more then 7 dragon types on box covers in a row (remakes not counted).. That's good.

    Rayquaza to Kyurem was the reign of the dragon basically.. :S

    Wait why!?! The Dark (and Steel-type) were invented just to make the life of Psychic-types harder because they were OP in GenI, and would still be today if it weren't for that. Ghost and Bug would be the only other counters.

    Now that I think about it.. The immunity was necessary because there still weren't that many good Bugs/Steel/Darks/Ghosts in GenII.. Scizor being the best none-Dark-type Psychic-type counter.. And other counters being Tyranitar, and to an extent Skarmory and Steelix (because it's SpD isn't as good as its Def). Murkrow wasn't any good, Sneasel wasn't any good, Gengar wasn't any good and weak to Psychic eitherway, and Houndoom was mčh at best.. And then there was Misdreavus.. -.- Most Dark-types were mčh, so that immunity was almost a necessity in countering Psychic-types for them.

    Now those types are widespread, so lifting the immunity could work, as long as it remains not very effective though..

    [Edit] And I thought I saw Fennekin using a Psycic type attack in the trailer.
    Ahh.. Remember the days when we thought that Oshawott would turn out to be part Ice as well? xD

    Grass/Fire-type for the win! Selfroasting nuts!

    Better stats but Blaze instead of Drought.. I know which ability I would take over some stats that can be overlooked when Drought gives you a way of diminishing Water effectivity, powers up your moves, and if your smart: Set up the rest of your team (Chlorophyll sweepers, Solar Power sweepers, Cherrim getting that boost).

    Why?

    But Pikachu is on the REAL Eiffel Tower in Paris when it shoots that Thunderbolt. It could be the Tokyo Tower, but the video speaks volumes to me. Why would Pikachu be standing on the real Eiffel Tower in France, if they were going to put the Tokyo Tower in the games? That makes no sense.
