The moment I saw this I thought "ew", but I've quickly learned to like and accept it. Whining about how awful it looks won't do anything to change it, as this is the inevitable future of Pokemon; full on 3-Dimensional realms and battling. I mean, it is the 3DS, so this was very much expected. My only complaint now is how the trainers' models animate. They run... quite awkwardly, as well as look pretty lame, haha. The battle clips, however... are pretty much what made me go from "this is horrible" to "this is gonna be one epic Pokemon game".
