    One like the hoenn would be great. He was not nice but not bad either. He was always up for a battle and sometimes it did insult us lol

    There were too many friends.

    They didnt need to make it so friendly just for kids.

    I dont enjoy cheesy story lines, but the graphics are awesome.

    Az was pretty cool though.

    I dont like how your avatar looks a ten year old kid. Im 19, I want to look like it ty.

    Its a video games, shouldve been an option for it.

    Team flare wouldve been fine if they didnt care about fashion or do that cheesy crap with their arms right before battling them.

    I liked the group of friends it added a comfortable feeling to the game. I felt quite lonely in Gen III without friends. Also Pokemon games aren't really big on story-lines.

    Yeah I thought the fact that I couldn't change my avatar to an older like 15-17 year old version was kind of lame.

    Lysandre was a lame character. I wanted to see someone a little more evil like Ghetsis or slick like Giovanni. Team Flare didn't really do much for me, their plans were vague and I never really understood what they were trying to accomplish until the end of the game.

    But that's been the case since like forever, though. Unless you count Wes and Michael who looked like cliché shonen anime protagonists ŕ la Yu-Gi-Oh!. Although personally, I'm 20 and I think that my player character looks remarkably similar to me.

    I thought that their obsession with fashion tied in nicely to their elitism.

    The chibi-like avatars annoyed me a tad - just a tad - but I basically brushed that off to the overworld map style. In the dressing room, the character feels like it makes more sense, and they don't feel to have a distinct age in appearance either. But hey, in my mind - at least you get to change it SOME, so I can't complain that much.
    I admit that the story felt... off. But I'm honestly overlooking most of it - key word, most. This is something that's always irked me some, but - much as I love Diancie's mega appearance - wasn't it mentioned somewhere in the story that only Pokemon who were NOT native to Kalos could go into Mega form, for some reason? Diancie is a Carbink, and Carbink being native to Kalos should by definition not allow it, nor Diancie by extension, to have a mega form.

    That was never stated, no, and if it were, then Pokémon such as Salamence and Abomasnow, which in the flashback to the AZ-era war were shown to be present in Kalos 3,000 years ago and can still be found there in the modern day, would not be able to Mega Evolve either since they are most likely native to Kalos as well as to Hoenn and Sinnoh, respectively.

    Basically, a Pokémon being introduced in any given Generation does not necessarily mean that that Pokémon is native to that Generation's region.

    It's like Sudowoodo. You see a grand total of one Sudowoodo in Johto, but they can be found in abundance in Sinnoh and Kalos, which could suggest that they are actually native to those regions.

    You may be thinking of this quote from an online interview:

    "X and Y will include all Pokemon from all previous games, offering the largest selection of Pokemon in any of the series' titles. But only specific Pokemon have Mega Evolutions; older Pokemon — like Mewtwo, Lucario and the Generation One starters — will have Mega Evolutions, but Pokemon newly introduced in X and Y will not."

    http://www.polygon.com/2013/9/19/474...la-to-focus-on
    ... but that is simply referring to the mechanically-oriented, out-of-universe logic behind the distribution of Mega Evolutions. It has no bearing on the in-universe story logic, and additionally, the introduction of Mega Diancie does not contradict this statement, as all that it claims is that XY will not introduce Mega Evolutions for any Generation VI Pokémon. Mega Diancie was, of course, introduced in ORAS, not XY.

    A valid point, also it was an event legendary and, technically speaking, event legendaries are not necessarily introduced at the outset of the game, but "revealed" later on into the generation. Granted everyone knows, but officially, they are not revealed at the get-go, hence making the original claim of Diancie no"introduced" in X and Y, valid. The same goes for past event legendaries (Genesect, Celebi, Deoxys, etc.).

    In a relatively unrelated note, the thing that bugged me most about XY was the lack of gym leader interaction, at least during the main storyline (haven't finished the postgame yet). This is my criticism with almost every main series Pokemon game of course as most of them you pop in a gym, battle, and pop out. Yes, some gym leaders had bigger roles (i.e. Clemont and Korrina), but ones like Ramos, Olympia, and Grant just fill the gym space. I'd get over it except for the fact that they executed this SO WELL in BW/BW2 with well defined and developed gym leaders who actually stepped outside and interacted with the protagonist to move the plot along. Also, the fact that they STILL haven't done a dark-type gym is very strange and annoying.

    I thought they looked older tbh o_O

    But I'm mostly thinking of their full models and artwork. They definitely look older than Brendan or May in ORAS.

    That's mainly because of the artstyle, the characters are drawn to be taller. I don't think they're older than 11-12ish. In fact, aside from Hilbert/Hilda and RSE Brendan/May I don't think any of the protagonists are older than that.

    is X and Y worth getting? cuz AS and OR seemed to be a little too short.

    OR/AS is longer than X and Y only because of the post-game content. X & Y have a very lackluster post-game content.

    other than the lackluster post stuff X/Y is still worth it?

    Probably only for Gen 6 Pokémon that can't be found in OR/AS, like the starters and the resident legendary trio.

    I was always under the impression that Calem and Serena were around the same age as Hilbert and Hilda. I don't think it's just the artstyle, ORAS May and Brendan look significantly younger than them to me despite being drawn afterwards.
    I also think it's worth mentioning that Looker talks to you like you're old enough to take care of yourself, unlike Emma who he treats more like a child. And she is canonically 16.

    I think I may have to carry on with the story line soon. I just received my 1st badge... then spent far too long in the battle chateau... i'll be going to get my 2nd badge with level 50 pokemon! haha

    Basically a nerd like all of the rest of you guys...

    Check out my portfolio at http://rayfoster.tk/, it's super cool. It's got loads of interesting compositions and programming works!
    Try out my iPhone app also! It's called DOODLE INSTRUMENTS. (Look on my portfolio of more info) - it'll help me out a great deal! Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure all main characters starting from B&W are meant to be older (besides ORAS Brendan and May because remakes). I'm pretty sure Nate and Rosa were stated to be older when they were revealed and Calem and Serena look like the oldest protagonists we've ever gotten.
    To right the countless wrongs of our day, we shine this light of true redemption, that this place may become as paradise. What a wonderful world such would be...

    I never gave much thought to Calem and Serena's ages tbh. I think I just subconsciously assumed that they were older than Ethan/Lyra for instance, but not as old as Hilbert/Hilda.

    Trevor is my favorite character :3 he's so cute.
    Not in the attractive way, in the puppyface way.
    He reminds me of when in was little and shy.
    I left the site. I'm not going to deal with tons of admins bashing on me. I have feelings and I'm mature and I don't need it. Bye nice people.
