If this game adds 100 new pokemon we'll be at over 800 pokemon, closer to 850 if you count all the Mega's as new pokemon.

It would be kinda cool if the last Pokémon generation was the 7th one, and the pokédex would finish at #1000 or #1001.

I mean, the Pokémon franchise has to end at some point, right? Won't happen as long as the anime has high ratings and the games sell like hot cakes, though.

Its been 20 years and it does not seem to be slowing down. Mario got his start in the 1980's and he sales like hot cakes lol.

If there is money to be made, they will keep making Pokemon games. I may be dead and in my grave 70 plus years from now, and they will still make pokemon games lol.

I would hate it though. Being dead of old age and missing out.

Yeah, by this point, a world without Pokémon or Mario seems like an unlikely scenario. I'd add Zelda to that as well. It kinda sucks that Mega Man is on life support, and most MM games probably aren't that great. I can't even imagine how sad I'd feel if Mario or Zelda died one day.

I think from now on we won't be getting as many Pokemon each Gen but we'll be getting "mega evolutions" to make up for it. That way they make "new" pokemon of old favorites keeping people happy and don't bloat up the international Pokedex. I'm sure from time to time we'll see a B/W situation where most of the pokemon are new but they probably want to keep the number of new monsters slow since this is a franchise they want to keep going forever and if not kept in check they'll be in the thousands in another decade, it's not the same telling you to catch 1500 PKMN ten years from now than 2500. I do think from now on we'll be getting a new gen every 3 years.


So I was thinking about how Gold/Silver put emphasis on the Sun-Ho-Oh and Moon-Lugia connection. At least in the title screens. I mean I'm not going to be all anal about it but it seems odd no one has mentioned it anywhere but they keep bringing Solrock/Lunatone.

As for the actual games well I guess we'll have to wait to see how they look but I'm not terribly excited about two gens on 3DS or new gens so frequently, XY still feels new to me and I'm a sucker for third versions where you can see a more polished version of the region and seeing small differences here and there before moving on, whether it was a "sequel" or whatever it would've been nice to revisit Kalos. I was also extremely underwhelmed by B/W, the game looked terrible and pixelated, I still remember the awful reveal and since it came out barely before the 3DS came out people just didn't give it enough attention and I feel like its a "forgotten" gen which sucks because the idea of a generation with only new Pokemon as something awesome and a way to revitalize the franchise and it kind of got wasted here.

I think the main reason gen 6 had so few new pokemon vs the older gens with about 150-200 each was they did have to change about 600 plus models of the older pokemon in 3d form. So they added about only 70 pokemon, but at the same time, they did have to revamp ALL the pokemon from past gens, from the 2d sprites to the 3d models. I think next gen may be about 100 plus new mons. Thats my guess.

If you have nostalgia for the first part of the anime series (Kanto) I'd go with Yellow.

Even though I love the color red, I prefer Moon's cover.

If I had to pick a starter right now I'd go for Litten. I like cats. Rowlet and Popplio look so lame.

Nothing beats Gen I's starters design-wise. In second I'd put Gen III's.

sdp
05-10-2016, 07:35 PM
I also think Pokemon designs are consistent every gen, If I had to choose then Gen V is probably the one with the least "Pokemon" designs in my view. All other gens definitely have some iconic "Pokemon" and ones that you wonder what they were thinking but after a gen is old many of those designs you didn't like grow on you as well. I can't live without Jynx anymore and I hated her back in Gen 1 :lol:

What I think about the new designs I like all three starters, I don't really care for legendary Zubat or Kimba the white entei, the other legendary already revealed felt like every other X/Y legendary.

The reveal is a little underwhelming and similar to what I thought about Black and White...it looks pretty much the same as the previous gen but more pixelated. I do like that the characters are less chibi esque even if I thought the chibi look was alright since it reminded me of the original games.

I have to side with cubed here, because that's what they do. They design more pokemon than will actually be in the game, then just bring out an old idea when they need a new one. It's why the designs are all over the place every time. It's common knowledge for Shellos and Gastrodon, but we have no way of knowing how many others are like this.

CyberCubed
05-10-2016, 09:33 PM
Every gen always has its share of crap pokemon and good pokemon.

For me the most forgettable pokemon nowadays are all the generic grass and bug pokemon. Seriously, there's only so many flowers or butterflies or moths you can make before you forget them all. :lol:

That was the case up to gen 4 (unless you count Caracosta) but most everything since then has been newly developed as far as I know. Believe me, I'm not genwunner, & I even favor inanimate object Pokemon which a lot of casuals hate. But even so, if they're still using leftovers, maybe it's high time they stop, after all those designs would've been held back for a reason. Shrug. I just think they could've done better. Felt that way last time around too, but not to this extent. It seems to me like they're growing a bit farther from what I would consider a signature look. There are consistencies between a lot of Pokemon, similar eye shape or style, for example, that these new ones don't call back to at all for the most part. Doesn't feel like Ken Sugimori's work (maybe it's not?).

CyberCubed
05-11-2016, 12:53 AM
Sugimori doesn't design every single pokemon and I don't think he's done that since Gold/Silver. Most of the designs are also done by the various Gamefreak employees. Sugimori probably has to approve them all, or make slight changes or alterations to some before they're finalized, but that's the case.

There's 721 pokemon now, and after Sun/Moon releases we'll have at least 800. Obviously once you literally have 800 something pokemon there's going to be a ton of variation in the designs and tons of duds.

On that note I feel sorry for the young kids of today. They have to memorize 800+ pokemon now from scratch, whereas our generation only went 150+ at a time. :lol:

Its confirmed James Turner, a British Gamefreak employee designed some pokemon himself most notable the ice cream pokemon from BW:

http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/James_Turner

So yeah, a lot of pokemon are probably designed by the Gamefreak or pokemon staff as a whole and not Sugimori anymore.

I like the designs for all the starters, but... I thought having a seal for the water starter was a bit redundant since we already have oshawott.

Just a tiny nitpick though. I cant wait to see all of their final evolutions. Im hoping litten's final stage is a really kickass looking tiger that doesn't become a fire/fighting type.

CyberCubed
05-11-2016, 03:01 AM
The cat is probably going to be fire/dark when it evolves. It already looks like a dark type even though its first stage isn't.

Netkeeper
05-11-2016, 04:37 AM
Yup, I believe Bisharp and Pangoro were designed by different people as well. Maybe they ARE moving away from a "signature look" but in my eyes it doesn't really matter, because that just means we'll get even more examples that redefine what a Pokemon's design is. And to me that just seems like how things would naturally progress.

Haven't people been saying this since like Hoenn? I remember when Gen III first came out everyone was saying how the Hoenn pokemon looked so different than the Kanto/Johto Pokemon. I love a lot of the Hoenn pokemon and some of my favorites are from that region. But its pretty obvious the designs have been changing considerably after the first two gens.

Fair. You can probably just flip through the strategy guide when you're in line at Gamestop and get the whole experience that way. :lol:

I like seeing the new designs as I play the game, personally, because for me a new Pokemon journey has its own kind of comfort to it. What makes each one unique are the critters I decide to use along the way. And as long as there are enough monsters to interest me, I'll keep coming back.

I know the games are still enjoyable, but I've mostly gotten burnt out on playing them since when I was younger I played Gens 1-4 to DEATH. I seriously have 999:59 hours on my old Sapphire cart, and 800 hours on my Leaf Green file. I think my Diamond game had 700 hours too. Let alone the countless hours I spent on RBY and GSC.

Obviously after all that I got burnt out. Nowadays I appreciate the universe of Pokemon and its characters more than actually playing the games. Like I always like looking at the new pokemon designs, and the new human characters and Gym leaders, etc. and look up fanart, etc.

Also between that and the actual games don't change that much between gens outside of the meta game (you're still traveling around routes battling 8 Gym leaders, etc.) so I just like looking at it from afar now. I still consider myself a fan of the franchise.

How can you just sink several hundred hours into these games? Do you raise every Pokémon? Isn't that boring as hell? Because once you beat all the trainers then all you can do, at least in RBY, is play against Elite 4 again and again and face wild Pokémon. And battling wild Pokémon gives you less exp points. So yea, no wonder people used the Missigno glitch and Nintendo kept it in the 3DS VC versions.

Supposedly, once this game comes out you'll be able to transfer your Gen I Pokémon to the Poké Bank. Nintendo should re-release the Gold/Silver remake for he 3DS so people can transfer Gen 2 Pokémon to it as well. And later make a D/P remake.

sdp
05-16-2016, 08:39 PM
As much as the game has changed it hasn't changed a lot so I can understand someone who plays it that much could've gotten burnt out. I'm more of a casual player so when I get burnt out I've only played like 20 hours max and move on. I'm sure eventually you'll want to play them again or try the new game when your interest is rekindled after a long time of not playing.

But anyway since you've spent so much time into the franchise wouldn't you want to buy any of the Gen VI or VII games just to transfer your Pokemon to Pokemon Bank? If not you may lose them forever and once in Pokemon Bank you know that you'll have them forever when you return to play the games and you know all your old monsters you spent hours with are still "with you".

I like the looks of Lucas, Dawn, Hilda, Hilbert, Serena, they are great designs.

Oh there's plenty of character designs in newer games that I love but overall the designs have gotten weaker. I haven't liked a male player character design starting with Gen IV, this includes the remakes of Gen II and Gen III which they actually made the playable characters look worse. Overall designs of characters are worse, you can still find awesome character designs, especially with Gym Leaders but they're still a coin toss.

Tbh Gen I had some bad and/pror uninspired Pokémon designs too. It's just that there's lots of nostalgia for it so many people can't bring themselves to criticize it. I mean look at Tangela. What is that even? Running spaghetti with legs? As for unimaginative, Diglet's and Magnemite's evolutions anyone? It's just 3 Diglet's and 3 Magnemites respectively. And Rapidash is just a slightly bigger Ponyta. And let's not forget Voltorb. A poké ball turned into life. And Electrode is an upside down poké ball. Really creative, eh? Golbat was Zubat with a big ass mouth and a huge tongue. Ugliest looking sprite in the game. Eggxecute wasn't exactly a great looking fellow either. And Jynx was... infamous for her controversial design. Need I say anything else?

At least the story was interesting, imo, espcially with N's character. I liked the irony of the gang. "We believe that Pokemon should be our friends. People shouldn't use them for senseless battle. I'm going to battle you with my Pokemon." lol

Now X/Y felt kind of dumb to me...storywise, but the features in that game was pretty nice. It was nice to make a character that wasn't generically white-looking and it's nice how it had a multilingual option and I hope this feature remains (not sure if the Omega Ruby or whatever it was called, had it). Mega Evolution...meh to me. Couldn't get into it.

You mean heart gold and soul silver? You can play the remakes on the 3ds, and you can as of now transfer Pokémon from gen 3 up to gen 6 as of now.

Yes even the Gold Silver remakes can get there Pokémon transfer up to gen 6. It takes work, transfer Heart Gold Soul Silver mons to Black White 1 2, and than onto the Pokémon bank. Than load to your XY ORAS file. In the gen 2 remakes, I was able to trade for Jasmine's Steelix and today its in AS, crummy stats lol.

There's actually a way to transfer your Gen I games to Gen VII. If you buy a device that can rip the save file from your Gameboy cartridge and then transfer that save file into the SD card containing the data from the Virtual Console Gen I release and there you have your original 20 year old Pokemon in a permanent save file on your 3DS and when Suna nd Moon come out you'll be able to transfer them there through Pokemon Bank. I would totally have done this but sadly my Blue game file was erased last time I tried playing it like a year ago... I know 4 years ago the file still worked...If only it had lasted a little while longer for me to know it would be possible to transfer and I would've done that convoluted process. My Yellow file still worked but that one didn't have any Pokemon team I would go through the effort to get my Pokes.

I like the new region, should be fun, I like the idea of islands and this will be different enough from Hoenn. It'll be like the Sevii islands but more expanded. The legendaries are ok, I like the lion but not the bat. The trainers I like the girls design but the boy is as generic as you can get just like the XY protagonist and even the HGSS and ORAS trainers they just look so generic. I'm liking the characters not being chibi. While I liked the chibi look it's also cool to see them how they're supposed to be. The game still looks super pixelated like BW did when they were revealed. I guess XY was the same but I don't remember it being so pixelated.

I wonder why GameFreak decided to do two tropical island regions in a row with water. ORAS was the last mainline game and now Alola is the next one, and its the same theme and similar setting.

Probably wouldn't have seemed so odd if XY got a third version game like Z version inbetween them, but since that didn't happen going from ORAS directly to Sun/Moon with the same type of setting feels a bit too similar.

ORAS is really just a remake with glitter on it, and 3d graphics too boot. I don't consider it 2 games in a row.

There was a gap from the games, in DP, to BW and than XY. If in gen 7, they make a DP remake, and the next game takes place in a Europe type of setting, would you consider 2 in a row also?

ORAS compared to the original R/S is practically a completely new game in terms of graphics and mechanics. Even if its a remake its still the last mainline game in the series. We're going directly from ORAS to Sun/Moon and both games have the same tropical island settings.

Big deal?

Red and Blue to Gold and Silver was literally the same island

Diamond and Pearl to Heart Gold and Soul Silver were both urban settings

Hell, even those four to black and white (yes technically it was based on New York) was still the same landscape.

OR AS are a tropical island, Sun and Moon are many different tropical islands, and based on the gameplay we've seen, looks like it's going to take a lot of landscape based on Hawaii, which was not in OR AS

I'm not really feeling the new pokemon designs so far, only one I really like is the koala bear. None of them strike me as, "Oh my god, I can't wait to capture this one in my game" as of yet. But we've only seen like 10 pokemon and there's bound to be at least 70 so hopefully the next bunch are good.

Its pretty obvious at this point GameFreak is retreading old designs with slight variations. Its almost like we know what to expect each time.

I've liked most Pokemon revealed so far and the whole you grow to like them thing is definitely true. Gen V I can say has terrible designs overall, Gen IV also has tons of bad ones, mostly the evolutions to previous gen Pokemon but nowhere near as many as Gen V. Gen VI was pretty good and I now pretty "much consider Gen III Pokemon almost on the same tier as Gen II which is "not quite Gen I but close".

I'll give Gen V credit that it had awesome looking NPCs including the player characters. All other gens after Gen III are mostly hit or miss with more misses when it comes to character designs, especially when it comes to the player characters. Even the remakes of Gen II and III made the characters far less interesting.

People in Alola are scared of Kiteruguma to the point of having warning signs about it. It is really strong and can break anything in two. It likes to hug its trainers but is strong. Raising one puts your life in danger.

Mimikkyu hates sunlight, preferring dark places. It is rumoured that the cloth covering its body is a strategy to avoid the sun. Don’t try to remove the cloth it is said that those that do become afflicted with an illness.

So the whole new Pokedex was leaked. 72 new pokemon, 18 Alola forms of Kanto pokemon, and about 8-10 or so UB's.

Thanks for the heads up, just checked them all out.

While a lot of the designs feel somehow off to me, like they'd be better suited for a different series or something, there's some pretty good stuff in there overall. I like most of the Alola forms, for one thing. The hair-having Diglett & Geodude evolutionary chains are hilarious. I could see myself using one the many available variants, maybe even Muk, what a wild look.

Not counting Alola forms, these are my favorites (& yes I know one of them is an Ultra Beast)-

Hopefully I can manage to make up a team consisting of 6 from this list, or 5 + an alternate gen 1 Pokemon. Still not too keen on the starters, so I may switch out grass-owl early on. I have a buddy who tends to rush through these games, hopefully he can hook me up with what I'm looking for as he did last gen. :D

What the absolute f*ck? That's it? Only 72 pokemon? Half of them either look the same or overdesigned. Some of these I can't even figure out what they're supposed to be.

Some good stuff. Mostly bad. The alola forms are sweet tho

I'm not really going out of my way to spoil myself or remain unspoiled, whatever happens will happen. 72 new Pokemon sounds about right, especiay with the alola forms. What are Ultra beasts?

I played the first part of the Demo and I was surprised at how much I liked it, it does feel like a new game with the new engine. The game reminded me a lot of a very nice PS1 game and PKMN Colosseum, color me hyped. I'm still unsure which version I'll go for but I think I'll go with Sun, do we know any differences besides Pokemon at this point?

There are 8 Ultra Beasts, they're basically creatures that take the shape of humans during the game. Think of them as psuedo-legendaries or something. Its confirmed you can capture them and they'll likely be treated as legends otherwise.

I just played the demo, and I'm really looking forward to the full game because it wasn't incredibly filling. Though, I intend to wait until January so I can get that beast of a Snorlax.

It's at times like this that I just want to arrange with friends and have all the starters. Their official descriptions are super sweet.

I have less of a problem with Popplio than at the start and I find Brionne Primiarina adorable, the cat person in me loves Litten and how Dwayne the Rock Johnson sings true in Incineroar, and how someone compared the Rowlet line to The Arrow. Cute kid, snobby teenager, Robin Hood.

For some bizarre reason, Steenee and Tsareena remind me of the frog lady from Don Bluth's Thumbelina. Even after I realized that they are technically vastly different...

so, new pokedex entries are out

http://kotaku.com/pokemon-sun-and-moon-pokedex-entries-get-pretty-dark-1788760230

they put more emphasis on the more darker aspects, the mega evolutions also get pokedex entries

The excess energy from Mega Evolution spilled over from its mouth, breaking its jaw. It spews endless blizzards.

Mega Evolution also affects its brain, leaving no other function except its destructive instinct to burn everything to cinders.

The excess energy that bathes this Pokémon keeps it in constant danger of overflow. It can’t sustain a battle over long periods of time.

Thanks to Mega Evolution, its child grows. But as the child is good only at fighting and nothing else, its mother feels uneasy about its future.

When it Mega Evolves, it becomes more vicious than ever before. Some say that’s because its excess of power is causing it pain.

Mega Evolution fuels its brutality, and it may even turn on the Trainer who raised it. It’s been dubbed “the blood-soaked crescent.”

Never understood those Pokedex entries since the actual pokemon never do the things the Pokedex implies, since Pokemon is a kid-friendly franchise.

it puts them closer on the level of Digimon at least, though at least Digimon lets loose their powers often times.

Tactimon, when his sword is unsheathed, can cut through stars, which is a shard of Susanomon's sword (which we have seen cut through the entire digital world)

The Pokédex has always had some pretty dark and horrific entries...and some entries that even have horrific implications. Like Magicarp being able to jump over mountains; there's a lot of terrifying physics behind what that means.

These are nothing really new - and nothing different from the typical entries.

I've been playing, I'm about 3 hours in and I think I'm finally getting out of the tutorial. I like what I have so far. I already transferred my Greninja but I'm wondering if the other timed events from the demo loop because I missed them all but when I played today one guy said an "event" was happening in 5 days so maybe they do loop.

This was also my first physical 3DS game and I'm disappointment, no manual or anything, cartridge is generic color and the box feels cheap. At least I'll be able to re-sell but I expected more.

I'll wait for an english dub but I saw clips, I don't like the new art style for the show/Ash.

I don't mind the plaza, but there should be some message or chat feature like in ORAS, It was so much easier in gen 6, some one shout out I want blastoise or other non event mon, we hook up, and work out what to exchange. And friends with the 3ds has the option of game chat, so in a hour long battle we just chat it out lol.

It seems I am isolation from the other players, I see there avatars lol, but we cant bing each other lol. And how does one get friends in this madness lol.

I try to only use new Pokemon introduced the generation I'm playing, only exceptions I've had was MegaEvolutions in XY and now Alola forms but technically they're new. I also change my team constantly.

Since I nickname my Pokemon I don't remember their real names and I only nickname the Pokemon I think will stick with me for a while but right now I have Litten, the regional bird, grimer, cubone, meowth and rattata. Most of those will be replaced though but it's the most appealing things I've encountered so far, I got up until before the first challenge.

I think I'm a little too slow, I'm about 8 1/2 hours in and I'm only in the daycare of the ranch on the second island.

My team currently consists of the second evolution of the fire starter, the Alola crab Pokemon and the donkey, I have an egg I just got at the daycare the second evolution of the firebird and a cubone in case I like the Alola Marowak but those last three slots could be replaced by cool alola Pokemon I encounter.

A friend (who I have decided to date, but I don't feel like "boyfriend" is the right term to use...feels too kiddy) got me Moon as a Christmas gift.

I decided to start with Popplio and intended to reset until I got a female, because I wanted to name it Saoirse (named after a character who was a Selkie). My guy joked that it would happen in the first try and it did. It was very much a "Mission status: Sick" situation.

For the moment, my team is made up of Ledyba (Francis), Pikipek (Pearl, a super original name), Wingull (Ariel, because I had no ideas), Magnamite (Acme), and Meowth (Bubba...I think Alolan Persian looks a little bit like my cat Bubba).

Don't always believe in rumors. Remember when Pokemon Z was said to happen but didn't? Besides whether it's true or not, you're still missing out on a great experience all because of a prettier looking version.
