Also Pokemon has always had things that the younger audience would never understand, such as EV's and IV's (even though they were arguably introduced in Gen III), and the Cloyster + Onix double battle Young Couple sex joke in HG/SS, and the fact that no one under 3rd grade actually reads any of the text in a Pokemon game (have you seen them ever play? They just mash the A button constantly)
^ This is the reason why I like arguing. If I come off as standoffish or overly angry in an argument, don't worry. I'm probably having the time of my life. Whether I agree with them or not, the pokemon fandom has a lot of different opinions, and I love how nobody is afraid to share them.even if we don't understand each other, that's not a reason to reject each other. There are two sides to any argument. Is there one point of view that has all the answers? Give it some thought.
Funny, I was actually searching for possible 6th gen Pokemon a couple weeks ago, and of course... you get those fake pokemon to show up.
It will certainly be an experience that is for sure. I will miss searching the internet for tidbits of information about the game while I am waiting for it to come out in the US. But it's a beautiful thing, we all get to enjoy a game as an entire world now instead of one after another.

Well, Masuda wanted to release a game that we didn't know anything about a-la red and blue, a game that would surprise us completely...and 80% of the fandom (myself included, no stones thrown in this glass house) ignored him and glutted ourselves on spoilers for B/W. And that was before they were even released in Japan.
Well, he's getting the last laugh now. If we want X or Y on release day, as a lot of fans will, we don't get any walkthroughs or people hacking the crap out of the game and reporting back first. We don't get any year in advance to plan our full teams, or kindly people who have the Japanese versions to take pity on us and send us over eggs for pokemon that don't appear until late-game. Nope, we gotta go in completely blindfolded and play it like noobs, making do with whatever leaks we can scrounge or whatever scraps of info they choose to throw at us in the meantime. I must say - well played, Mr Masuda, Well played sir :P
In all seriousness, though, I'm impressed by this move. It's got to cost extra work and manpower to pull off a worldwide simultaneous release, and they probably aren't getting any more money from it. This is a much-appreciated nod to the loyal fans who live outside of Japan, and I can only hope this is the start or a trend whereby we get everything pokemon-related (at least gamewise) that japan do. After all, are we not paying for the games and consoles just as much as they are?

I'm sorry to do this, but I won't be posting in the Serebii Discussion Forums anymore. My account here will remain open for trading/chatting with friends, but please be patient for a reply as my visits here will be fewer.
I've left for the greener pastures of Bulbagarden Forums, where free speech is still allowed and the rules are followed by all, including those who enforce them.
It's been a fun 3 years ~
Hey, if the games were released in the Eshop would you buy them? Although it can be pricier than buying a physical cartridge, it would be easier to carry around.
Perhaps they will make it easier for people to transfer from previous generations. turn your Gen VI game and while a previous Gen is inserted. That way you don't need to use a friend's 3ds.
Seems a bit weird knowing that now that Japan is getting the games at the same time as everyone else, I wont have to worry too much about reading Serebii's Discoveries because I'll have my own copy of the game to play. Japan getting the games first with everyone else a few months later was a nice way to get a head start on planning my team though.

I'm just waiting to see how this fox will turn into a Fire/Fighting type again.
I'm not to excited about the starters...they don't even look like they're real. Guess I'll just have to wait and see. And the only gen where I've spoiled the game for myself was Platinum and White. All other gens were a total mystery for me. I quite enjoyed not knowing what was going to happen or know where I needed to go or which path to take. (victory road)

Current obsession: Pokemon X
That being said, October is the month of my birthday, and my University has a Gamestop in it. I'll likely be able to get it and play as soon as it comes out. xD
I really hope this means we get the same events as japan, because I'm sick of them getting all the good ones while USA gets screwed.
I love the worldwide release! I finally won't spoil the games by reading through the serebii coverage! Haha!
Nah, just kidding, I love the serebii game coverage.
This "Pokemon Rainbow" rumored game is already killing me. I want it!
Also, general nintendo fans will probably like my youtube. I make unboxings and collection videos.
Thanks if you check it out
Yeah a lot of people will probably just read the news leading up to the games release and then stop there, play the games, then go read on the site. That's what I'm doing, this year will be a suprise!
Edit: I just remembed, it's january, 10 months? Oh no.
GAMEFREAK DOESN'T CARE ABOUT YOUR PATTERNS
Biology and DNA is more complicated than 3rd grade math... While some players may understand it, the assumption could be made that some players dont so why use such a theme for a series also aimed (if not mainly) aimed for children.

It's great to have it be relased on the same day around the world. I suppose it'll prevent hacks/spoilers for people so that's good. I dislike how they have this released so early. I mean Pokemon Black and White 2 hasn't even been out that long!
Honestly though, I should have seen something like this coming, if you look at the time between releases for Japanese games to make it to the States, the time has consistently decreased as technology has improved and the years wear on.
Pokemon Red took 2 1/2 years to make it over to the states. They seemed to have reached sort of a peak with the turnaround time being about 5/6 months, but this makes sense.
I agree, this is definitely a new frontier for everyone.
