They finally decided to give us a non reptile grass starter. Could see him becoming Grass/Ground Pangolin/Porcupine or Grass/Dark rodent thief. He doesn't really interest me though.
Froakie has a high chance of being Water/Fighting, and I would love for his evolution to be called something along the lines of Fisticroak. I could also see him just being pure Water type and becoming Beetoaden, the Conductor pokemon. I'd pick him either way.
The fire fox will probably become either a Renamon or Okami reference. Either way, most likely going to be Fire/Psychic.
My hopes for this generation:
- Better IV system
. Less RNG with breeding. Ways to increase it in-game with currency or points would be nice
- Harder Gym difficulty
. Tired of Gym Leaders with only 3 pokemon later in the game, I expect 5-6 team members near the end, not for them to have 3 and only have one slightly harder but yet not really addition on "Challenge Mode"
. More variety in their teams would be nice too
- The Sandstorm treatment for Hail
. Give Ice types a DEF boost during hail
. Rock types needed the SPDEF
, Ice types really do need the DEF increase
. Would make Hail more worth it
- More ways to remove hazards
. Very tired of being forced to use Rapid Spin
, would be nice if there were more options that fit better on builds and allowed for more diverse team choices

Also, the game still looks like a DS game. It's cute and colorful and has a certain style, yes, but it still looks like Phantom Hourglass/Spirit Tracks. The 3DS is capable of much MUCH more.
even Ocarina looked better than what was shown in the trailer.
I am pretty skeptical about this, but I do have a feeling that there will be full 3D movement they just didn't show it much in the trailer. The game itself looks similar, at least graphically, to Pokemon Colosseum for the Gamecube. Also, most 3DS games seem to look terrible or less than how they really look when shown in trailers. Super Mario 3D Land looks far better on my 3DS than it ever did in the trailers. I am going to assume the same with these new games.
One could also assume that the full 3D movement hasn't been fully tested yet, we still have quite a bit of time before the games are fully released. Probably giving Nintendo and Game Freak a little too much credit, but they hardly ever disappoint.
