    Unless the backend gets another complete overhaul I don't see them locking off Gen 5. 3DS & DS can still interact and they might be able to make a 3DS app that can take Pokemon from the DS games and then send them to the actual games.

    Or they can just make PokeBox 3D and let you store everything there and gamefreak please make PokeBox 3D

    Is anybody else getting a massive "flying Zoroark" vibe from Y-bird?

    Grass/Water
    Fire/Grass
    Water/Fire

    Here are some of the things I want that have not been mentioned:
    An evolution to Pinsir. He goes hand in hand with Scyther, yet Pinsir has gotten the short end of the stick.
    Flareon learning Flare Blitz via Level up. For fuck sake its been like 12 year overdue.

    Things that have possibly been mentioned that I may have looked past:
    I hope gen 5 pokemon can transfer over to the new games :[
    I would like to see a pseudo-legendary that is not dragon-based. (ghost/normal dual type mummy/zombie pokemon anyone?!)
    FUCK a dragon type eeveelution.
    No more new abilities unless its unreleased DW abilities. It's going to get out of hand at one point. Keeping it at 3 max is more than enough.
    I think a new Rotom form would be pretty cool.

    I'm sure there are more but I cannot think of any as of right now

    EDIT: 339 USERS???

    Early designs look pretty good so far, I'll probably just wait for a 3DS emulator to come out since these are the only 3DS games I'm looking forward to playing. One thing that kinda annoys me is that the new legendary theme might have something to do with chromosomes -_-

    if we are doing wish lists...
    1. No filler pokes. I ll take 30 great new pokes over 200 pokes like those monkeys
    2. New type combinations/abilities for competitive use. I hope game freak put a quarter as much thought into the new pokes as CAP does
    3. POST GAME. I would like a means to play through the game again with lower level pokemon without restarting my game

    As mentioned many times by now Flare Blitz would not be so great on Flareon, as this 65 HP stat would prevent it from using it right. However Flareon could still hope on getting a new physical fire move (not getting my hopes up however, this is poor Flareon we are talking about).

    Oh, by the way. This "worldwide October 2013" thing it says at the end of the commercial, any chance that the games could be released before then?

    I'm just gonna drop this here.

    From Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yggdrasil

    In before "Z Pokemon = Nidhoggr" and "World Serpent pokemon = trio master = Gen 6's Arceus/Kyurem".

    Norse mythology in Pokemon? I approve.

    I count 52 pokes with no evos that could/should get evos. Left out stuff like ditto castform and rotom that get formes/transforms but that's still a solid list of candidates to choose from.

    It also doesn't include stuff like Jynx that got left out when Rhyperior stole her evolution and other 2-step pokes that could use that 3rd evo to make them more useful.

    Pretty sure they said worldwide October 2013 because the game would be releasing worldwide on October 2013
    That's why Iwata talked about the shortening time span between japan and everyone else, why it's a world wide announcement and probably why Pikachu is thunderbolting the entire world

    You know what would be awesome? A new move that makes the weather foggy for 5 turns.

    To me both of the legendaries actually look dark type.
    Y is obvious, but X actually has, aside from the horns which seem psychic to me, a very dark color scheme.
    So i predict X to be psychic/dark (which would be awesome)
    and Y to be flying/dark or fire/dark

    The starters are so cute, I think I might buy plushies of them.

    Well, not really, but figuratively. I'd get a lot of hate just because it's Pokemon.

    Oh, yeah! And don't we forget the rodent Ratatosk, which... oh, wait...

    Its been so badly trolled, but yea I understand what you mean. I feel like it can nab a few kills late game with a scarf set, but it's HP would be depleted. A CB set would be awesome for wallbreaking though since it could probably go max attack/max HP.

    With the 4 stags listed, it actually made me think more of the previous generation's musketeers. The dragon would be reshiram/zekrom/kyurem (esp. considering they were one being at one point i think?) with the eagle representing either all the flying genies together or tornadus' bird form. Though it would be neat if this gen was based on Yggdrasil.

    Norse mythology has a crapload of creatures to choose from. The dragon seems the most likely as a third member of the trio.

    My (probably inaccurate) predictions here:
    Chespin - Probably a pure Grass-type. Could possibly be Grass/Ground.
    Fennikin - Fire/Psychic-type. It used a psychic-type looking move in the trailer and gives off that vibe of being a psychic type. Might just be a regular Fire-type. So long as its not part Fighting, I am happy.
    Froakie - Likely a pure Water-type. If not, then a Water/Poison-type.

    Pokemon X Legendary (The blue one which looks like Virizion+Arceus's offpspring) - Likely a dual-typed Pokemon. Looks like a Water-type due to being blue, but I could easily see it being a Grass-type, a Water-type, or a Psychic-type. Maybe even a Normal-type...

    Pokemon Y Legendary (Hi there Tornadus-T/Reshiram fusion thing. Seriously, it has Reshiram's eyes and resembles Tornadus-T a bit...but it still looks awesome) - It is probably a Dragon/Flying-type, Psychic/Flying-type like Lugia, might be a Flying/Fighting even.

    On the contrary. This basically confirms we'll be getting a RSE remake. 3DS doesn't have a gameboy slot and these games are 3DS exclusive. Unless they put Groudon, Kyogre, and Rayquaza in the after-game like in HG/SS then I am sure 3rd gen remakes are probably next after X and Y.

    Unlike Platinum, HG/SS, B/W, or B2/W2, this duality of games are 3DS exclusive. In Gen 4, we had Pal Park for the DS. In Gen 5, it was Pokeshift(?).

    On an unrelated note, the even numbered generations (2 and 4. Discounting 6 since the game isn't out) tend to have new evolutions of past Pokemon, several being awesome. Blissey, Gliscor, Magnezone, Espeon, and Roserade come to mind.

    This is just pure speculation, but X and Y? DNA? Sounds a bit like Deoxys. Maybe a new forme is coming...

    Personally, I don't really like any of the starters, but I'm withholding judgment until their evolutions are released.

    The 3D world looks incredible, but the trainers... Ehhh...

    My God, the battles look awesome. Nuff said.

    A wild Pikachu appeared!? YESSSSSS!

    Here's hoping the ???-type returns. Oh, how I've missed its mystery...

    My personal hope is that the second moves used by the starters in the trailer were used to hint and their later dual types. So Chespin = grass/ghost or grass/dark both are awesome. Fennica fire/psycic, and it looked like Froakie's move may have has sparks if so I'm praying for water/electric if not water fighting would be cool too.
