    Yea, this pretty much sums it up.

    Looks really cool, but... Where the hell did this bucking come from?

    It's like my childhood is dying piece by piece. If there is anything I hate more than motion controls, it's turn based tactics games.

    I guess we're skipping over the fact that Pokemon itself is a turn-based tactical RPG.

    I really hope this is well executed (not "HEY GUYS LET'S JUST SLAP OUR LABEL ON A SHITTY GAME AND CALL IT GOLD"); I want to be able to buy this.

    also wtf ds? really? the 3DS has good games now, gamefreak, people are actually buying consoles now; you shouldn't have to worry. Even if the 3D is shittily pulled off, I would still appreciate the nicer graphics.

    You are most correct good sir. Anyone who doesn't think that Mewtwo with samurais oozes of pure awesomeness must lead a most depressing life.

    Aside from a handful of titles, every Pokemon game has seen release in the west. There's a high chance we'll get this.

    Yep.

    Strategy RPGs are great. Actually, I'm sort of scared this will be too easy and watered-down, because of the audience. The most jarring thing for me about it is the clash of settings (Pokémon and uhh.. feudal Japan?). But this has a lot of potential. Give it a chance, everyone! It's a new way to experience Pokémon and it's really not gimmicky except for the crossover aspect, which does make me a bit wary. I say it's not gimmicky because tactical RPGs are an old, diverse, and well-explored genre; there's something out there setting-wise for everyone who loves strategy. And considering a lot of us have played competitive Pokémon at some point, it's not a stretch to translate one form of turn-based tactics to another, isometric form. We have a lot of weird spinoffs anyway: Pokémon Snap, anyone?

    lol, well, 'why not' at this stage?

    Also, I have to draw parallels to the Shin Megami Tensei series, where you summon demons to fight for you. SMT has a lot of spinoff series and I've only played Devil Survivor so far, which is a grid-based tactics RPG as well, but I'm sort of seeing this game be like Devil Survivor. I don't think the trainers fight in this one though unlike SMT:DS, but I could be wrong...?

    The moment i regret not fixing my broken DS sooner. I will probably get this game for i am a fan of that type of game. it just seems a bit weird though...i mean, i honestly dind't see such a crossover coming at all, but i wont complain because i have seen more weird crap that was still fun to play.


    Still waiting for that DigimonXPokemon Crossover to troll haters.

    You know what I mean, games like FE and FF Tactics where you move several freaking squares at a time to get close enough to attack a single enemy and doing this with more than one character.

    I simply do not like that setup, not one bit.

    I have never been even slightly interested in wasting even a moment of my time playing any non core pokemon game. If it doesn't have the complex IVs/EVs/Nature/Movepool/etc it does not interest me. I am very interested in this however. Fire Emblem is a great series for its own reasons.

    I bet JRank is having an orgasm right now.

    Although I've never enjoyed SRPGs, and I haven't played much of Fire Emblem or Nobunaga's Ambition, I'm excited about this insofar as it's a new way to enjoy Pokemon, as Jumpluff said. After all, the main Pokemon titles often mention how Pokemon and humanity have been tied throughout history, so here's a playable example of that. Pokemon is generally assumed to exist in a sort of parallel dimension, but I'm willing to overlook that and enjoy the feudal Japanese setting! :P

    I've always wanted some sort of Pokemon war game along the lines of the Dynasty Warriors Empires games--a sort of real-time, strategic buttonmasher, if that makes any sense--in which you must plan and organize forces, but combat isn't slow, turn-based, or confined to grids.

    Again, I have limited experience with Nobunaga, so correct me if I'm wrong.

    Anyways, I will probably buy this game. It looks like it has a lot of potential and like every has said, samurai are cool!

    It's got Jigglypuff. I pretty much have to buy this game now.

    I really have no idea how to react to this news. This is definitely going to be a game where I take the "wait and see" approach.
