    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!

    P.S.: Is there any way to embed vids without them being so big?

    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.

    I swear, if in XY it's not possible to complete the national dex without paying extra money, I am going to smash my copy of X with a hammer.

    Unless they charge money to trade with someone then that's impossible.

    With the Torchic event coming out, I'm pretty sure I'll be starting with Chespin. My goal is not to repeat any types the first time through, so that immediately eliminates Fennekin and potentially precludes Froakie if it ends up becoming part Fighting. I'll probably pick up a Fairy-type for sure, maybe Sylveon. We'll see though, I might even go ahead and get both X and Y to have 2 teams and access to all the exclusives.

    EDIT: And quite honestly, I really wouldn't mind if we lost the ability to transfer pokemon over. It seems unlikely, but it would provide all the more incentive to do Hoenn remakes and have truly varied regional pokedexes for all of the Gen 6 games.

    That doesn't change the principle, and I'd frown on anyone who's support that.

    It seems highly unlikely that they are going to charge money for trading with someone.
    Anyone have any guesses about what types the elite four are going to be?

    So I guess you are implying paid DLC Pokémon? Aside from that it has always been true that if you want every pokemon for your dex, "someone" has paid money to make it happen. Usually this was by buying a version you don't have.

    Assuming that Bug, Fairy, Electric, Rock, and Fighting are out of the question, I'd like to see Poison, Ice, Ghost, and Steel. Poison isn't known for its offensive techniques but I'd like to see it in the E4. It's good against Fairies, too, which I'm sure everyone will be using. Ice is ice, and tends to show up either as a gym or as an E4 type. I don't want to see it as the last "strongest" type (too many weaknesses), but I think second is a good place for it. Ghost is always a cool type, and although we had it in the E4 last time I wouldn't mind seeing it again. Finally, Steel has yet to be featured in the E4 and has enough resistances to make it a decently difficult final type. The champion should be mixed, like Cynthia.

    EDIT: These four types don't share too many weaknesses that aren't covered by the others, either, so I think it'd work out well.

    Charging for a game is a bit different than charging to move around some data on your cart. At what point do they stop? When they charge for more trainers in PWT and for basic online features?

    Let's all get upset about an issue that doesn't and most likely won't exist.

    We do not have any information about DLC aside from the fact that the development team refused to comment on its inclusion at the roundtable a couple months ago.

    Let's move the discussion toward something slightly more based in fact.

    Yeah, I'm really interested in what the Elite Four will use. Quite frankly, I would be really surprised if there is no gym-leader or E4 member that uses fairies, since in GS there was a gym leader who used steel-types (Jasmine) and an E4 that used Dark-types. (Karen)

    You can bet someone somewhere is going to be a specialist in Fairy-types. I'd much rather see an E4 member using Fairy-types this generation, since E4 members are normally equipped with more varied Pokémon of different secondary types (and stronger battle strategies) than gym leaders tend to be, and I'd like to see our new type at its meanest.

    Haha you're not the only one. I can do attacks also, but probably up to RSE.

    this video has much more footage, it also shows what happens when a pokemon is confused and hits itself

    Edit: if someone can read and understand japanese, at 06:39 in the video we have sylveon vs gabite...and it looked like gabite DID INDEED DO A DRAGON MOVE AND NOTHING HAPPENED and then sylveon went for fairy wind and put gabite in "the red"...WE NEED A TRANSLATION A.S.A.P!!
