Get Hyped!

Journal Entry: Sun Apr 15, 2012, 8:31 AM Official site and high quality trailer April 16th Pokemon Smash videos featuring ingame footage

I don't know about you, but I'm getting pretty excited. It's almost like we're getting Generation 5.5 (well more realistically speaking, Generation 5.2).

New Rival is swagtastic, even his battle music is cool (though you can't hear it too well). Also, you can NAME him! :omg: You start in an actual city rather than a tiny town with 4 houses. And all trainers are actually animated!
Some things you might not notice at first:

:bulletred: Not only are there revamped battle backgrounds, but the circular platforms are actually animated.
:bulletblue: Looks like Pokemon have new animations. Emboar stomps its foot, Oshawott tosses its scalchop. They never did this in B/W
:bulletred: The battle music has been remixed. It does sound a bit better!
:bulletblue: One of the screenshots shows a group of people all dressed the same. Is this the new "evil team"?

And all that's just the tip of the iceberg (lol get it? I made an ice reference because of all the ice and Kyurem and….yeah…)

Any ways, discuss your hopes and speculations for these two games.

i love how people are freaking about being able to name your rival. That dates back to red and blue lol glad they brought it back though. Now they need a console rpg.... I do like the idea of starting in a real city lol.

sounds cool. The main characters look really different from B/W and yet still pretty similar. Most times the third (or in this case second pair) game is just an alternate version of the first pair. The drastically different looks, plus the new characters and 2's make me think these are sequels to B/W.

Not sure how I feel about B Kyurem and W Kyurem... It just seems like instead of making another version mascot to accompany Kyurem on either B2 or W2 they just fused it (the original 3rd mascot) with Zekrom and Reshiram to make two new pokemon.

That just blew my mind!

The only thing I'm hoping a bit right now is that with the new GYM Leaders around, I think we will be getting the only type that was not previously represented as a GYM for the next 4 (Or the next 5 without a half?) Generations: Dark.

Whoashizz. When does it come out in America? My computer is being slow, so I can't click any of the links (gr.).

I want to pick Oshawott, but I've been picking fire types since I started playing ;3;

I didn't think I would be so excited for these games but I am! :la: I'm getting White Kyurem (I had gotten PKMN Black back then cuz I like Reshiram a lot). Also, I think this time, Eevee is wild (?), if so that is awesome. I can finally get an Eevee with a Luxury Ball. XD

wild eevee would be awesome!
MileniaKitsuvee Featured By Owner Apr 28, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Yep, it's confirmed there will be other region Pokemon in the wild. Eevee, Growlithe, Riolu, and Mareep are some of them and there will be version exclusives. I hope Eevee is in White. X3
