A few months ago I wrote a post called ‘The future of Pokemon’ in which I predicted / requested future aspects of the series, AND I WAS RIGHT, I WAS GODDAMN RIGHT.
Well, about the 3d thing anyway. I’m so happy Nintendo has finally bit the bullet, sprites are great and will always have their place but they’re a little (very) outdated in presenting RPG characters, I have to be honest even as I was writing that they should make that move on the inside I seriously doubted that they would, they just seemed to put it off for so long that there would be no reason to expect any different now.
It’s sort of funny and amusing that right now every gamer is in awe at the three dimensional pikachu, pointing at the screen with their friends saying “Look! It’s 3d! Look the flowers are 3d! THE TRAINER IS 3D OMG THERES A RIVER JESUS CHRIST ITS IN 3D!!!!!” It’s like 1995 all over again xD
This should have happened a long time ago BUT I’m just happy that it finally has.
In that old post I also requested a larger moveset, more individuality, improved random encounters and free roaming. None of which I think have been implemented, not that I thought they would mind. You never know though, other than that video Nintendo haven’t explained anything.
I really couldn’t give less of a crap about the starters, the fire fox thing looks like a cooler version of vulpix and I hope it evolves into something that can fly, imagine the CHARIZARD RIVALRY OMG.
I can’t wait to see the cutest (Charmander) coolest (Mewtwo) and the all round best (Wobbuffet, obviously) in 3d, as shallow and terrible as it sounds, that is reason enough for me to buy this game. Speaking of my favourite Pokémon, I did make a list of it.
I bought a Gameboy colour, Gameboy Advance and a Nintendo DS soley for pokemon in the past (if those consoles have any other uses I haven’t found them yet). Looks like I’ll be buying a 3DS.
