    No. I want my transfer. It killed me I couldn't take Gen 2 mons to Gen 3. Then my old carts started dying and it was like my old memories were dying with them :( I have a Salamence which I have cradled all the way to Lv 100 (and has beaten 4 different leagues). I want to keep him alive. Hes done Hoenn League, Kanto League, Sinnoh League and Unova League and has a shit tonne of ribbons etc... He's probably the single mon I've had around the lolngest apart from my same game Swampert. I don't want to lose those mons :/

    Yeah, I have a Wailord with just about every award known to man that I'd rather not leave behind in Unova. (Well, it's actually still finishing up the Jumping Pokeathlons...) But it has every non event ribbon sans the purification one from Coliseum, and that's pretty flippin' crazy. It has conquered three leagues, won dozens of contests, climbed mount battle, had a super footprint, been in Solaceon on a Thursday, been a ridiculously good goalie, and achieved maximal happiness. Walter the Wailord might be the most esteemed Wailord on the planet. I even went to the trouble of winning several dozen luxury balls in Ruby (by beating master rank contests repeatedly; the only way to get one) and fishing for the perfect Wailord. He is a modest one, to be sure. Strong and fast as the tide.

    And besides, if we get a Hoenn remake he needs to be able to visit his homeland once more. :p

    The idea being talked about here is adding Pokemon to existing areas, which is much different than Dream World. Also, I will burn my copy of X/Y is they make you buy Pokemon. At that point, GF should just let EA buy them.

    Unlike you heartless monsters I have Pokemon that I have grown attached to and have had since Gen 3. They bring back memories of the good times and they can't be replaced. Also I have shinies I don't want to lose lol

    On the topic, yes, finding a way to retain old mons would be great. But they really need to do something about Level 9 or under Zekrom and "Legal Hacks" (aka RNG Abuse). But I guess people will just continue playing on online emulators.

    ...Hell, no.
    This. This exactly. I have over 50 Shinies, all of which I am the original trainer of, all of whom I remember the stories behind, none of whom I want to leave behind. I have numerous EV trained Pokémon filling up my PC. I have Pokémon I've become attached to, Pokémon I've had for years- some Pokémon I've had for over a decade! The day Ruby and Sapphire came out in the US, I picked up my copies and started Ruby with a Mudkip. That Mudkip is now a level 100 Swampert in my Black 2. My Wynaut has 60 ribbons, for crying out loud! If they don't allow transfers, I will rage.

    So, has anyone started thinking about what's gonna go on their in-game team? I know it's a bit early to be thinking about that, considering how little we know about the available Pokémon, but that hasn't stopped me from doing some early planning. Did the same for Black Version before we even knew all the Unova Pokémon. Due to picking out my entire team before we knew all the options, I ended up with a team of Emboar, Simisage, Basculin (Red-Striped), Klinklang, Zoroark, and Swoobat. And it was an awesome team. Wouldn't have changed a thing about it.

    Anyway, right now, as you can see from my signature, I've so far decided that my team for Y will include Chespin, Helioptile, Skrelp, and Noivern. The only one of those that has even the slightest chance of being changed is Noivern, and even then, they gotta introduce one badass Fly user for me to reconsider using Noivern. I'm torn between Houndour and Litleo for my Fire-type, I'm gonna wait until we know more about Litleo's evolved form(s) before I make my decision. I'll be honest, though, I'm leaning more and more towards Litleo in any case at this moment, even though I've never used Houndour on an in-game team outside of Pokémon XD. And the sixth slot? Totally undecided. Swirlix would have been a competitor for that spot if it wasn't X exclusive, though it might still be, depending on how quickly I can breed in X and trade the Egg over to Y.

    So other Pokémon have updated cries besides Pikachu's anime-voice.
    At least Crobat's and Mewtwo's have been remixed.

    listen to the first 16 seconds of this


    One can infer from this that, at the very least, gen1-2 Pokémon are getting a revamped voice.
    yay!

    EDIT: Ninjask'd. Vid link removed.

    Cool new cries. Of course, now I gotta try and memorize everything's cry all over again- I can identify nearly any Pokémon by its cry (obviously I can't distinguish between those with identical cries, like Charizard and Rhyhorn, or Omanyte and Machop). The battle music, however, is awesome!

    To answer Missingno. Master's question about my in-game team... IDK. I know I'm getting that Torchic, but now it's a tossup between Chespin and Froakie as to who's joining Torchic. But I do want an Inkay and I'm considering either Helioptile or Dedenne.

    Exactly.

    Hopefully they look into this problem, because it was one of the most irritating things I experienced online.

    Well, wouldn't matter. Yes, nobody'll probably care enough to make so many 3D models from scratch. But at least you can still play with 2D models, just with Generation VI mons too. Most of the Metagame today takes place on online emulators.

    Neat. Although I'm still mad that they changed Pikachu's Cry. The games and the anime were different canons. Mixing them.. just.. isn't right.
