    Sycamore assistants are quite, uh, interesting I guess. In a sense that I think there is something wrong with them.

    The pop culture overload and humor in this game reminds me why I love the series. The one-off characters are more entertaining than the story characters...

    Aside from shorts kid being back yet again, I've seen a psychic referencing Over 9000, a Roughneck speaking like a tough guy while thrilled about his Jigglypuff evolving (which itself invokes memory of that old rap in the anime 15 years ago, where the vocalist was overenthusiastic about Wigglytuff) and more.
    Also, you now have to click through the trainers' loss messages...so they're hard to miss.

    Definitely worth talking to everyone in this installment. Will be hard to put down.

    I'm almost at the 2nd gym, and I do kinda have a problem with the storyline. Even though generations 1-4 really didn't have much going on in terms of story, the game at least felt like it had a direction. Gen 5 was a lot better in developing story and characters to push the player forward, but X and Y really just feel like the plot is all over the place. I have no idea what my goal is (outside of gym badges, elite 4, etc., but even this is barely mentioned in this game). Every new zone/route/city feels like I'm just randomly set to work because, well, I am the main character. No other explanation is need apparently.

    It kinda reminds me of the Dragon Quest games.

    Also, Team Flare is by far the worst villainous team the series has seen. I really hope gen 7 brings back Team Rocket.

    The group is searching for the secret to Mega Evolution (they say it a lot). That's why they're traveling. The professor told them where to go, and they're working from there. You're also only at the second gym.

    Yes, I was being a little facetious with that I said, but sending a group of 10 year old kids out to find the secret to "Mega Evolution" while barely explaining what it actually is. "Go to Camphrier Town, where you will find a clue" is basically what you were told after you picked up your Kanto starter. It feels like a wild goose chase. It's nothing like the previous generations.

    As I said, everything (to me) feels scattered and directionless.

    No.... It's exactly like every other generation. In fact it might have more direction.

    Gen 1: Oak basically says go fight some pokemon and maybe finish the pokedex. No direction.
    Gen 2: "Go after that thief. We don't know where he went, but we figure you'll find him eventually". So where do I go?
    Gen 3: I literally don't remember what the goal here was, so I guess I can't talk about this one.
    Gen 4: Work on Professor Rowan's pokedex. Follow your friend how should lay off the cola.
    Gen 5BW: Your Mom thinks you should go adventuring. Leave. And work on my pokedex while you're at it.


    All gens lack direction at one point, especially 1, 2, and 4. They pick up eventually just like this game does (after the third gym). And about sending children out to do adult work, that's every pokemon game.

    Even though it's very obvious, how exactly does Shauna have feelings for you? Like does she confirm this? I'm only just finishing up with the third gym, so I don't know if this is a fact or just something like Hilda and N where fans think they like each other.

    This is the exact same for the female main character. It's probably just a "best friends" relationship for both heroes. (for some reason, Japanese games tend to get translated with more intimate sounding friendships...or we Americans are oversensitive to possible shipping)

    Question: Is Tierno supposed to talk like the language of the region if foreign to him?

    "starting moving" doesn't make sense.

    LOL funny and yet spot on. I believe though I could be wrong that the goal of gen 3 was to both surpass your father who is a gym leader and also just complete the Poke dex like in gen 1. I didn't really read anymore into it than that to be honest.

    And as for cola I got the impression it was more a red bull overdose at one point. Shauna in this gen strikes me as having a little cola at some points and I'm not even that far into the game.

    Other than that I get the impression that however ridiculas they are Team Flare might have something to do with the mega stones existence. However small that something may be.
    Just started a lets play of Pokemon X. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHfKOvGgEIc Prepare to watch the fail xD.

    Pokemon so far:
    Fennekin
    Zigzagoon
    Fletchinder
    Dunsparce
    Torchic (in the pc)

    Got my first badge and accidentally caused a shiny bidoof to faint.

    By the way, where the hell was Alexa? She only ever appeared for that split second in Santalune, I've not seen her at all since. I just expected her to have a bigger role (I suppose I have the anime to blame for that) I thought she'd of at least turned up every now and again when you battled someone.

    Is that at a certain place? Because I swear I've not seen her at all. But Lumiose confuses me so I probably missed where she is haha!

    So, as someone asked before, are you able to re-battle your rival, post-game?
    Because he/she says something along the lines of "We'll battle everyday..." after you beat the 7th Gym, or something.

    They are in Kiloude City at the top end of the city, they are there all the time. Although for some reason, they don't appear straight away after you finish the league (I think they make you wait a day, not completely sure)

    So they are re-battleable, right?

    Okay I don't know if this was discussed already or not, but it is true that your main rival develops a crush on you? Because so far, I did not see anything :/

    It's Shauna if you're the dude.
    But it's the male main character if you play as the female.

    I think GF took some inspiration from Doctor Who when doing their character designs and script. Looker's in the game (10th), Sycamore used "Fantastic"( 9's catchphrase) and the gym helper's wearing suspenders and a bow tie( 11's signature look).

    Does Mr. Bonding, the guy who gives you the O-Powers, creep anybody else out?

    -You can only find him in hotels
    -When you talk to him it blacks out for some reason
    -Once blacked out he says "alright lets start bonding"
    -He then mysteriously just disappears to meet you at the next hotel

    Its just weird
    I have raised, bred, and traded to obtain one of every single 649 pokemon, and still remain with one of each.
