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

I don't see why they'd add that functionality when the bank is right there, waiting to be used.

From http://www.pokemonxy.com/en-us/strategy/ : Look forward to a free trial period after the launch of Pokémon Bank. Be sure to try out the software for yourself during this time to see everything that Pokémon Bank has to offer!

So, you can use the trial to make all your essential moves and drop it if you don't want to pay 1.3 cents a day for it.

OK.

So, some people have been wondering about the post-game content. You know, after beating the Elite 4 and Champion. That post-game.

I won't give any context to this, because I have none, it's just some pics from one of the leakers, but it's supposed to be post-game. Whatever is going on, it's fucking odd and possibly wonderful.

Click 'em if you want 'em.

There's something strange going on in Kalos.

Post-game spoilers: That's not post-game, I don't think. That's the main story. According to the main leaker from Something Awful, there isn't a post-game. You have Zygarde, and the Battle Tower type building (Battle Mansion, I think?), you have Mewtwo and a roaming Zapdos, and...that's pretty much it. He's found a few areas that SEEM like they could be used for something, but he can't figure out how to trigger anything there.

That's pretty much it as far as the post-game goes, as far as we know. If there's anything else, it's REALLY obscure.

Post-game spoilers:

Yeah, waking up this morning, and reading the newest info, it is all pre-Elite 4. Thanks, leakers, for not clarifying that at the time.

It stands to reason that if you're releasing info as it happens in the story, anything you put out after the end of the story would be considered post-game.

My mistake.

EDIT:

THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT FEATURE

IN THE ENTIRE SERIES IS BACK.

Having this in Ruby/Sapphire and all the way up until HG/SS but then removing it in BW was just... why? Why would you do that?

Now if they also bring back the frame option, to personalize the menu's appearance, I'm happy.

what if we get the game and all the graphics are different from the leak and all the stuff we've read is wrong and all the early cartridges were a completely different game from what we'll get on Saturday?

Ha, that's funny, because someone on /vp/ actually posted a fake leak about that. Basically, it was about how Nintendo hired all the leakers and gave them fake pictures to put out there to generate hype for the game while also keeping the actual content secret until the 12th.

Obvious joke is obvious, but still kind of funny.

EDIT: Fuck, Saturday can't come fast enough now.

Also, there's some sort of store-specific bonus in-game? http://i.imgur.com/a04XiFtl.jpg

Ah. Tesco is some British store chain, it seems. They might have worked out some deal or promotion or something with Nintendo of Europe.

Nothing the rest of us need to concern ourselves with.

Cool news for those that like Flying, Ice, Bug and Fire types: Stealth Rock seems to have been capped at a maximum of 25% damage.

Charizard now longer dies instantly upon entering the field.

HAA ZAH!

Edit: FUCK YEAH!

That ability turns Normal-type attacks into Ice-Type attacks. That means Hyper Beam becomes more powerful than Blizzard. Explosion and Self-Destruct would become the most powerful Ice attacks, period.

And it seems that Pixalize will do the same thing with Fairy-Type attacks. FUCK YES.

Tons of other mega evolutions are out, so I'm curious if ALL final evolutions get it. Other ones include:

Pinsir

Heracross

Houndoom

Scizor

Manectric

Banette

Honesty, I have gone past hype and have entered the astral plane of hypitude and have achieved critical hype.

Yes, Mega Alakazam has been the talk of many places today. At level 16, it had a Special Attack of 70.

That's like giving a Slime a shotgun. That shoots fire bullets. And then the fire slaps you as it burns.

Still haven't seen any specs on the other recent Mega Evos, though.

Well, I was going to get my copy tonight, but nowhere except EB Games (GameStop Canada) is open, and fuck them. I got free gift cards from work for Future Shop, so I'm going to go get my free game.

I almost caught an Abra but, as always, it teleported away before I could catch it.

I did find a Pancham, so part of my planned team is already in place. Named him Darunia.

ALSO GOD DAMN PANCHAM IS SO CUTE IN POKEMON AMIE LIKE SERIOUSLY I CAN'T HANDLE IT IT'S HEARTMELTINGLY CUTE BUT IN AN AWESOME WAY :3

I got the lady a copy of X as an early birthday present today. The socially maladjusted sect of society, and their children, were out in full force this morning.

She's been very much enjoying it though, loves the attention to detail and new visuals thus far.
