The ones i said were confirmed are confirmed
My personal prediction for what will happen with Nintendo Direct:
Hide (Move your mouse to the hide area to reveal the content)
Lol good guess.
What baffles me is that Pokébeach's type chart was perfect. I can't think of any other type that would fit so well as a resistance to Fairy than Psychic. Not even Ice would be that good, because 1) that Pokémon Smash sketch back in May implied Fairy was at least neutral against Ice (at least that's how I looked at it), and 2) lol great, Fairy would be resisted only by two types weak to SR.
Maybe Fighting won't be weak to Fairy as a way to make up for it, but then it would be even better as a type than it is nowadays. It would be helpful to curb Steel's dominance over the metagame and that would only be for the benefit of Fairy-types, I guess, but... I'm kinda sick of Close Combat spamming in OU.
...Oh wait, if Dark-types' presence in the metagame is reduced because of the Fairy weakness, then maybe Ghost-types could see more use.
And its not very effective on Fire.
That would possibly be the greatest thing ever.
Listen to us Gamefreak! At the very least: (here's what I would do) allow us to take outsider Pokemon without a nickname to the name rater. A pokemon that hasn't been personified and given a true identity by the OT deserves to get one. Like if you're getting a mon from a Paul-like figure. If the mon already has a name, you should respect that. And it's easy because after nicknaming it once, the game could treat the mon like a nicknamed outsider. If you're going to go ahead and give that betrayed Pokemon a new identity, that becomes powerful and can't be simply changed.
I watch the anime too much...
Exactly. I've transferred Gen 3 mons to BW, and I never nicknamed them, so I have GARDEVOIR and CHARIZARD next to Simisage and Keldeo.
My eyes hurt just thinking about it.
I think I'll just be content with the Starters' Secondary Evolutions. Oh and maybe that new battle system Masuda mentioned a good while back. GF really seems to have modelled X&Y in concurrence with the Metagame. It's about time they altered it to become more convenient and "competitive".
Decorate? *wags tail*
I was thinking along the same lines.
I am hoping that they will show the evolutions of the starters, or at least the second stage. I still haven't made a choice though I know for certain Chespin won't be the one.
Furthermore I am hoping for some update about the type chart and an a fresh start indeed.
I don't think we'll see the evolutions of the starters yet, to be honest.
Because of the limited information we have, we know next to nothing about what we don't know, to put it confusingly. We don't know for certain if, say, Noivern has an evolution or a pre-evolution. We'd like to find out, but we'd also stay content if we don't get to know yet. Likewise with Mega Evolutions. We don't know what Pokémon will get them, but we'd like to find out. We're more interested in finding out if there is more to be known, rather than specifically what it is.
As for the starter evolutions, however, we know they exist. They will be revealed some day, you will encounter them during game play. They are very significant to gameplay. But, we don't know anything else about them. We want to see what we know exists, compared to the hypothetical Noivern family which might not. We have speculated a LOT about this, lots of people are asking themselves the same questions, we know there is an answer, but we haven't been told yet.
We tend to wish more for confirmation (or disconfirmation) of our theories, we want to know if our speculations are true or not. We want answers to our questions, more than we want new, unrelated info. Sure, it would be neat with the reveal of this generation's equivalent of Snorunt or Carnivine, but it would be a lot more satisfactory hearing about this generation's equivalent of Charizard.
Do GameFreak think in the same ways, though? Hardly. They want us to stay tuned to hear the answers we crave. Meanwhile, they keep feeding us teasers, giving us more questions we want to be answered the next time. For full satisfaction, we have to buy the game. I don't expect the starter evolutions to be revealed, as much as I expect to hear about this generation's equivalent of Snorunt or Carnivine.
Nintendo Direct - Edit: All aboard the hype train! My body is Regi!
The direct starts in 10 minutes here.
@DineshThePoet: It starts in 10 minutes, it is 20 minutes in length.
Pokejungle is live-tweeting the ND for those who can't access the stream. I guess watching this thread would cover that anyway.
As a note: this forum is not the place for your real time commentary of meaningless stuff in the Nintendo Direct. If anything lets wait until we have learned everything from this event.
1. There's a "Pokemon Bank Box", basically a PC box, but real, on the internet. You can store and download your mons on your 3DS whenever or wherever. Their idea for trading Pokemon from previous gens to X&Y. There's a "Pokemon Transporter" for the same function, and these are still in development. BUT there's an "annual fee" for the maintenance of your box.
2. You can receive the original starters later on in the game.
3. MEVOS for Original Starters!
is this still going? I missed it :(
Still going on here: http://www.nintendo.com/nintendo-direct/archive/09-04-2013/
New stuff: Gen 6 starters given to you by your friend. Then, one out of the Gen 1 starters given by regional prof. The Gen 1 starters have Mega Evolutions, by the use of Mega Stones and Ring
I'm most happy that the transfer has been confirmed from BW to XY. Woo! Even if it is an eShop app. Sounds like something they'd easily be able to update on a whim's notice, possibly forcing it to be online for cheat checks to ensure only clean Pokémon make it through. Just a theory.
The bundles come out on September 27th, does that mean you can get the games on the 27th if you get the bundle? (assuming the games are pre-loaded with the bundle)
