Thread: Pokémon!

  1. #6521
    Ive actually been thinking about buying a DS lite second hand and moving onto diamond, platinum, pearl and the x and y is it?

    My question is though, do the NPCs constantly jump on the spot when they talk in game, and do they constantly refer to pokemon as "Monster world" or what ever it is,

    Reason I ask is that I tried playing an e*****r online and the characters were constantly jumping and calling it monster world and saying it was a video game or something, I kept getting pissed and closing it

    Which is quite fair, however you could also think of a porcupine or hedgehog, which honestly the new grass starter thingy kinda looks like. So I'm guessing an armored Nuzlocke copy, especially if the grass/dark type turns out to be true.

    Imagine a suave Sandslash with a few twigs and leaves here and there, yeah that's my theory.

    Sounds like a fucked and bugged emulator.

    Oh and it's Diamond/Pearl/Platinum -> Black & White -> Black & White 2 -> X & Y (which aren't out yet).

    And I can totally see that. I was thinking Grass/Rock was unique until I remembered Cradily's line.

    Like I said, just a theory on my end.

    I can see either of those combinations happening, but I do like the idea of a Water/Dark more.

    The idea is that it'll be fire/psychic, grass/Dark and water/fighting to counter their original weakenesses.

    Ignoring my terrible rushed outline and if you can flip Ireland and the UK cloclwise around 180 degrees. It looks pretty much exactly the same - even the river or whatever that is off to the right. Poor Norway and Sweden.

    Sorry but no^^
    As you mentioned it looks like a star. You know what else looks like a star?



    Looks almost too similar.
    That plus the eiffel tower in the main city. I would say it's safe to asssume it's based on france.

    And there is also this post on serebii

    Also. That round thing is most likely the big city. And it's at the same location as paris.

    Yeah I agree, and I hope that leak is wrong. Fighting a Water/Dark type with a Fire/Psychic *shudders*

    We all knew it was going to be based on France. Looking at an actual map though now and its pretty clear its just France, which is exactly what a lot of people didnt want after Unova.

    Why didn't people want it? I don't have a problem with it. Not to mention Europe would be too big imo. France is already much bigger than any of the places they have used as inspiration before.

    This is true. The problem people seemed to have with Unova was that New York is just too small with too little variation to base an entire region off. Most of the towns and routes just looked too similar. Looking at the Kalos map though there does seem to be a lot more variation.

    aaaaaand i can probably delete that image of europe since the more i look at it the more obvious it was thats it was France.

    I really hope the battle scene in X and Y isnt slow. Because they have made it "3D" with more graphical elements. This is why I hate gen 4, the battle scene is just toooooo slow even when you do turn off the animations. Dont get me wrong I LOVE the story of the 4th gen games and G/S was my fav back in gen 2. But the battle scene.... oooooh the battle scenes just makes playing the games unbearable. Just feels too sluggish and not smooth at all.

    And this is also why Gen 5 is my fav :P the battle scenes are beautiful and ofc the EXP change is amaze ballz.

    Any of you dislike the flow of battle in gen 4 ?

    i never noticed it being much different, if youve ever played Colosseum or xd or that revolution game expect battles to be like that

    It was only Diamond and Pearl. They fixed the random lapses and pauses in Platinum and HeartGold/SoulSilver. And tbh the battle system was the least of the D/P problems.

    en 4 just wasnt that good in my opinion, i didnt really like any of the starters, i disliked all but like a handful of the new pokemon (luxray, lucario, ect) and ost of the evos for old pokemon looked awful

    I liked Gen 4.

    Liked all of the starters.
    Liked most of the Pokemon.
    Loved the Region. Sinnoh is way better than Unova or Hoenn

    I've probably voiced my opinion too much on D&P in this thread when it has been brought up in the past, but I still feel like adding I think it's the weakest entries for any main game. The Pokémons just don't look good for the most part (some exceptions like Palkia, Torterra and Garchomp, but they are few,) the region is forgettable and all over the place (not as bad as Hoenn though,) the story was way over the top, but worst of all, the gameplay was too damn slow. I generally have some patience, but not the patience to ever play those games through again without speeding it up on an emulator. Plus, the Elite Four were too damn strong, I'm all for a challenge and that, but it was just ridiculous, no wonder they were nerfed in Platinum, which was an improvement for the most part but I still feel it's pretty damn weak by Pokémon standards. Gen 5 was luckily very good, and I have high expectations for X & Y coming off of Gen 5, even if I didn't like Black 2 & White 2 very much.
