Graphics +

More Pokemon games +

More Pokemon -

Confusion about the protagonists apparently being very likely the same as in B&W and B&W2... can go either way.

At least the new male protagonist doesn't have a case of stupid hair!

It's nice to see some more detailed environments. Black & White 2 have some very GBA-like graphics at times, and after playing mostly 3DS games for a while, the result looks a bit dated. I can only hope that the 3D models will be detailed enough, so that it feels like a legit upgrade from the current sprite work.

The hair is a definite improvement.

Also, I don't know why, but I keep reading everything you (Doc) post in a posh British accent lately.

Diamond and Pearl.

First and fifth generation: primary colours.

Second generation: metals.

Third and fourth generation: gemstones. (Pearl is sometimes counted as one, even if it might be erroneous.)


Copper, Bronze and Brass could be used, but those just would feel too much like Gold and Silver's "lesser cousins", colour-wise. Iron, Cobalt and Nickel could do, go for the more ferrous metals rather than the precious ones.

Jet, Obsidian, Amethyst or Topaz would be possibilities.

Orange, Cyan, Purple, Indigo, Violet maybe.

To note, metals and gemstones are often used to refer to a specific kind of colour, even though those metals and gemstones by nature can have a variety themselves.

If you buy Pokemon X, then solve for Pokemon X, does X equal 0 and makes the game vanish?

Well, I actually was in England last month, so it's possible I picked up a bit of an accent. I know I tend to do that! ;)

Furthermore, since the two versions tend to be similar, and many gamers will pick up one or the other at random, should we assume that X = Y ?

Wouldn't that mean XY = XX in the Pokemon verse and have some very weird implications?

I know for special occasions they like to wait a little while and release a special "3rd Version". What if there's a Pokemon Z?

And then what if they make a shocking X/Y 2?

And so the biggest contribution of a classic Mega Man artist in 2013 goes to the Pokémon series. I'm not even surprised!

Are there any news on that origins anime? I haven't heard anything about it in a while.

It's been out in Japan for a while, I think the dub is actually being released in NA today.

I'm abit surprised that there has been no duscussion about these games here since their release.

I was extremely hyped for these games, and although they fell a little short in what I was hoping for, I appreciate what Gen VI has brought to the table so far. I'm pleased that the new pokemon aren't explicitly designed to favour sweeping; hitting hard, hitting fast. I like the inclusion of hordes and the Friend safari making hidden abilities and good IVed pokemon more accessible.

I hated Chespin but ironically Chesnaught is probably my favorite third form of the starters. Trainer customization is an improvement, I guess. It's disappointing that your trainer still ends up essentially looking like a typical trainer. Especially for boys.

My friend code is 4270-1300-4398. No idea what is in my friend safari (yet!).
