    Isn't that GOOD ? Don't tell me you want the beeps and scratches from gen 1 and 2.

    They probably wont, actually. If they'd had any intention of doing so they would have with D/P/P. There's nothing wrong with real instruments, though.

    That's perfectly respectable music as well, you know.

    Beeps and scratches? Dude... Didn't you play the last three generation games? All of them had outstanding soundtracks that weren't orchestrated. Most games have "computer made" music, you're basically saying that the majority of game music sound bad, including the most popular ones. So, answering your question: It isn't necessarily a good thing, not for me at least. Why? Because most of the video game orchestrated soundtracks sounds awfully similar. Go play Mario Galaxy, you can't differentiate a lot of tracks from each other, because they sound the same -.- Of course, there are exceptions, like Shadow of the Colossus, Okami and Zelda Skyward Sword. Coincidentally these three are Action-adventure games. So, maybe Game Freak decide to make orchestrated music and they happen to sound good. Go Ichinose, Hitomi Sato, Junichi Masuda and the others never let me down with Pokémon music, anyway...

    The two most popular Nintendo franchises besides Pokémon (Mario and Zelda) had orchestrated music in their last major installments (Mario Galaxy 1/2 and Zelda Skyward Sword), so it is definitely possible to happen the same with Pokémon. And no, there is nothing wrong with real instruments, but video game music with real instrument usually suck (in my opnion, of course).

    I never meant to say that it was bad. of course it is good. I was just contrasting between the 2.
    @Nyarlathotep : Nor am I saying that the Computer made music is bad. That's basically saying that all pokemon music is bad ( which is not true at all ). I'm saying that orchestrated is fine with me as well.

    There's a big difference though, both of those franchises are handled by a different team from Game Freak. Game Freak does entirely their own thing. And I quite like Galaxy and Skyward Sword's soundtracks.

    I thought the music on Black 2 (and White 2 I guess as I only own Black 2) was the best music of all the main series pokemon games to date!

    Also if there was just ONE thing I'd request in Gen 6 pokemon it would be the ability to transfer pokemon between two games without needing two ds's/3ds's.
    The way I think this can be done is either an eshop app where you can transfer pokemon to from one game and then download them onto another game (kind of how the dream radar app works) OR if theres a global link site/dream world site as in Gen 5, why couldnt they make it so that you could 'wake up' a pokemon you've put to sleep on one game, on another game that is also synch'ed to the same account.

    I just feel that this is a real issue especially as often people will have pokemon they wish to trade over to their new games from their older ones and the majority of us are unable to afford or to justify the expenditure of buying a second handheld specifically just for trading purposes between games we personally own!

    Back to speculation on the 'new mechanic', as that can stand to be a total game-changer if it's something cool.

    I personally wouldn't mind moves that level up the more they're used; maybe they become more powerful or accurate the more often the pokemon performs them? After all, practice does make perfect, so why not implement that into the games? Sure, it may seem unfair at first, but at the same time, it would push trainers to make their pokemon the strongest and best they can possibly be.

    Something related to happiness would be cool, too, like a pokemon getting stat boosts (or maybe even EV boosts) the happier they are. Considering that all we get out of happiness at the moment is a few evolutions and power-ups on a couple of moves, they could definitely do more with the invisible stat.

    Orchestrated music is a given in these games. We have already had the introduction of real-life instruments in B/W2 in the title theme and if GF managed to format that on DS then there's absolutely no doubt that it will return with full effect on the 3DS. We've got evolution of the graphics and (hopefully) gameplay, it would only be logical for the music to be upgraded from the pitiful MIDI instruments of yesteryear.

    Although of course if they retain the current instrument system.... would it really be a loss? Just listen to the likes of the Marine Tube and Reversal Mountain (both versions) on good quality earphones and you've already got brilliant, sophisticated sound quality far from your typical DS game. Although I am really hoping for some orchestrated tracks, I don't want a dominance of such styles like in Skyward Sword or Galaxy (wouldn't really suit the feel of the series) but live instruments and perhaps some big-band pieces would be fantastic. For once, I remain optimistic.
    someone should open a x/y music thread, even if we've got nothing to go by atm.

    Let me ask you guys... what would you prefer:

    A: Pokémon's cries are the same as always?
    B: Older Pokémon gets updated cries, and newer stays the same?
    C: Pokémon now say their name/growls/etc, like in the anime?

    At least, I think this should be in the Gameplay part... sorry if it shouldn't. D:
    Is apparantly Dragon Type in the Friend Safari. Neat.

    I would totally love that. Compare the older cries to the new ones. The old ones sound so ugh, I wish they were updated or something. Hearing them say their name would be excellent.

    Regarding the new battle mechanism, I think it will be like the links in Pokémon Conquest. That was an awesome feature by the way.
    Yeah, I really liked that about Conquest. Using the Link system could even give an exclusive bonus to certain Pokémon, such as your starter. It'd make the starters more usable, at least.

    The retro cries need to be updated so, so badly. They sound horrible compared to the recent ones. I wouldn't be against Pokémon saying their names, but I'd much prefer the animal-like cries to remain in the games. I can't see them choosing to include six (?) different sets of cries, either.

    @DKYK
    The old cries are nostalgic, and awesome in that way. But they are very bad when compared to the newer ones. I would honestly prefer if they updated, or gave them voices. ^^ Good voices. Some of the ones in the anime are a little... lazy nowdays. ._.

    I'd update the older ones to Gen 3-5 quality.

    I'd have the game on mute permanently if the Pokemon actually said their names.

    It would be for the best if the first Gens vere updated, and there was an option to hear their names. ^^ Doubt that'll happen, though, but who knows.

    I think C would be terrible. Actually, I really liked the BW2 trailer, where Pokemon sound similar to their game cries instead of saying their names. So for me cries will always be better than saying their names.

    B is what I really want for this generation. Updating cries would be amazing.

    I thought about it, they don't all have to say their names, they could be a Pokemon like Entei and roar. That would be cool. But, yea I doubt it as well. xD

    Edit: That's actually what you said. xD
