    They could but they won't since it is far easier to make all pokémon share the same attack animation as it save money and time. Beside giving Blaziken an exclusive Blaze Kick animation would be pointless since Blaze Kick isn't exclusive to Blaziken any more.

    In fact all of the 3rd generation starters lost their exclusive moves.

    Ok so we got a 3d world but we still have the grid system and 4 directions we can move in. No biggie, still looks awesome and the battle animations and 3d pokemon characters are soooo good!

    the game also doesn't come out until October, it's January. No matter how you look at it it's January, they will never advertise in depth of anything this early.

    Now that you mention it. It does look like it'll be longer, maybe it won't be. But, it sure looks like it.

    It won't waste any money and will hardly waste any time. Animating 3D character models takes a significantly shorter amount of time than spriting 2D animation frames. And all it would require is a table within the battle code that checks for unique move animations.

    Beside giving Blaziken an exclusive Blaze Kick animation would be pointless since Blaze Kick isn't exclusive to Blaziken any more.

    I cited Blaze Kick as an example, not as fact. Heck, they could even make Charizard have its own Flamethrower animation.

    Not to mention in the video, Mienfoo is actually charging up for Aura Sphere, rather than just standing there and an Aura Sphere coming out of thin air.

    I feel like they'll integrate it well. I don't think we have anything to worry about!

    You can't transfer from Black/White, but you can transfer from Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire, and also Yellow.

    I can't think of many, if even then, but I believe Lucario had a specific animation for only Aura Sphere. It may have been used for its other moves, but I never have seen it used with another move. Even then, I doubt there was any other. A little trivial, yes, but I thought it was worth a mention.

    Lucario's Aura Sphere, I also believe Blaziken had 2 different Kicking animations, one would play for it's other kicking moves, while the other would only play for Blaze Kick.

    No, Lucario just stands there while an Aura Sphere comes out of its stomach/crotch.

    I'm assuming this is in B/W? I haven't used either much in B/W so never noticed.

    No, but you can from Pokemon Puzzle League.

    No, this is in Colosseum, XD, and PBR, though Blaziken's Blaze Kick animation was also used for Flare Blitz, I believe, and only those two moves. Or something to that effect. I actually played PBR two days ago, so I conveniently remember that.

    Darn, I knew I should have bought it when I had the chance.

    AW MAN I JUST REWATCHED THE VIDEO AND GUESS WHAT I SAW

    2 things

    First thing - You guys know that little hat Chespin is wearing? When he used Solarbeam, the little "leaves" turned into spikes.
    Second thing - The new Team bar was shown when the starters made their entrance, at the bottom left corner.

    Ah. I know what you're talking about with Colo and XD, Blaziken used that same animation for any physical contact move. Never played PBR, though.

    It will be October for Japan only right? I assume the rest of the world will have to wait.

    Can't that problem be solved by turning battle animations off?

    You missed the huge emphasis on a worldwide release, I'm assuming.

    I remember his animation for Blaze Kick being him doing a frontflip as he kicked, while for other moves, like Sky Uppercut, used the one where he seemed to punch forward. As for Lucario, I'm more confident that his Aura Sphere animation is only used for that. I think Palkia had something similar with Aura Sphere, but I'm not betting anything on that one. Regardless, I'm not going to put much more thought forward on unique move animations like that for these games.

    What do we reckon to being able to turn off the move animations like we can on B/W2? It sped up battling by a surprising amount, if I can't do it with this what appears to be even longer battle animation I'll be disappointed.
