Pokémon X/Y and OmegaRuby/AlphaSapphire (Gen6) (3DS)

636 posts in this topic

Well, we're at 649 Pokemon right now. If I had to guess, I'd say we'll get 100~120 new monsters?

Gen1|+151 (obviously)

Gen2|+100

Gen3|+135

Gen4|+107

Gen5|+156

That's on average about 130 additions per generation. If we take that and add it to what we have already, that brings us to 779 total.

So I'm guessing we'll have a total of 750-800 unique Pokémon from all generations after this gen.

I'm gonna have to buy a 3DS of some sort, now, aren't I? Bother, I didn't want to have to give up my good ol' DS Lite. Ah well, looks like it's gonna be a really nice-looking game. :)

I gave up on learning everyone's name after Gen 3...I have no hope now.

The Pokérap will end halfway through as the rapper passes out from lack of oxygen while trying to name them all.

Sadly, Gen IV and Gen V didn't get a Pokerap.

But Gen V got

which still strikes me as both amazing and hilarious.

Grass starters every gen for me but Gen III, because Sceptile is laaaaame.

It's the tail. It just looks really, really bad to me in-game and in the Sugimori art.

Treecko I like. Grovyle's design I LOVE. Sceptile...ugh. The damn tail just throws the whole thing off.

why does every pokemon announcement have to be followed with everyone talking about what designs they do and don't like as if it has ever or will ever matter in any meaningful capacity

I'm interested to see what their final forms look like, but I'll probably go with Froakie because I've always taken the water-type.

Now you know how I feel whenever someone starts a Final Fantasy "discussion".

"No, I don't fucking care that you liked Final Fantasy VII just an iota more than Final Fanatasy V and thought _insert number here_ was the 'death' of the series."

not exactly

final fantasy designs are important to the games themselves. how the pokemon are drawn has absolutely no bearing on how pokemon plays. they could all be 5 pixels and the game would play the same

Yeah, one of my favorites is Cradily, I still have the one I hatched from my Sapphire game back in 2004. "Oh, but it's ugly" everyone said... then after a year, online sim stats showed a sharp increase in Cradly use once people started figuring out that it's stats, movepool and ability let it soak up damage and recover easily, walling most mixed attackers until it could wear them down. Yes, eventually, counters were found and used, but that's not the point; people hated it based upon looks, and ended up using it based upon stats.

I STILL say that Fennekin is going to be Fire/Psychic. And besides, even if it's another frakking Fire/Fighting type, it CAN'T be worse than Emboar...can it?

I was made aware of this article that links the legendary Pokemon from Pokemon XY to figures from Norse mythology. Pretty interesting stuff.

Chromosomes, 3D space, biological systems in humans, Norse mythology...

Seems this generation is just full of meanings.
