Okay, now I need to know:

- What will the cries sound like?
- What will evolution look like?
- Throwing a Pokéball?
- Pokédex?
- Battle interface?!

Are people really that surprised by the graphics not being amazing? Gen III looked like a GBC game with a bunch more colors, Gen IV had Jaguar quality 3D towns, and Gen V had pixelated "animations" based on rotation like a bad PSX game.
People never seem to want to give up the idea of Pokemon being a technology leader.

I love this point in gaming. All the mystery and speculation over Pokemon to come between now and October. And this time, we won't know everything about the games before they release outside of Japan, so the whole world is going to be working together to explore the new world. :'D
Also 3DS has no PC emulator so far, so one can't just analyze rom contents.

It truly is a new experience much like when it's new.

You forgot "Le"

Judge the game with its battle graphics.

Yeah but still it's not like we expected Golden Sun DS to look prettier either...
Either way the battle seems far more impressive.
And you forgot about Gen I looking like an early GB game too...

Hints so far are there.
If that's the case then I think I know what will be in my library come october...

Glad they are moving to global releases. Pokemon deserves it. Should also clean up the massive spoiling that goes on before every release in the US. Also since 3DS is relatively unhacked and they can allow full DLC this should really make for a more interesting experience of discovery.

In the back of my head I can only think of what Miiverse integration could do...

Starters look like ass and so does the Blue legendary but I like the visuals. Will miss sprites.

Maybe I should play through white 2 for one more go around with 2D Pokemon.

They've got eight months to crack it yet, and they're awfully close. Don't jinx it.

(yes i avoided the obvious pun)

That said, I look forward to when we're able to bring in new Pokemon to the game from the SD card.

Ahaha well I'm glad I'm not the only one then! :D And Fennekin will so be my starter, I like it just as much as my Torchic back then :p
Yes!! At first I was like "Oh that grass one is..HOLY MOTHER OF ALL THAT IS HOLY.." when the fennec popped up. One of the coolest starter Pokemon ever. Confirmed. Though that is still one of the coolest grass starters ever. Not so much sold on the water one though.

And Torchic is the bomb. Still have mine on my old game.. actually it's probably on Black. I remember trading a lot of my older games Pokemon up to get it on Black. Didn't want to lose them due to silly battery issues or anything. Makes me wish I could pull off my Pokemon Red though right now. I worry for my Pokemon.

How awesome does it feel to board the hype train and then take us where we wanted to go and beyond?

I am so excited. Time to catch them all on BW2 and get ready to transfer! 10 months to catch them all...well till the new ones :D

It's probably gonna be the whole europe if they want some water/sea zone.
They've been moving away from water for a long time now.

B/W really only had Undella Bay, and the sea routes they added in B2/W2 were completely optional.

edit: actually, only mostly optional. Forgot about the Frigate in the story.

Ok, after reading through the entire thread:

-Dennis, you're a superstar with all those gifs. So good.
-the legendaries are fuck awesome. Like, seriously. I think my favorite is X; dat deer with sword legs.
-the starters all look great, even the grass one. I don't know which one I'm going with yet but I'm leaning frog...
-the battles are in 3D, which I was actually against (love my sprites!), but I have to say I really like the look of them.
-worldwide release is fantastic.

All in all I'm hyped. Come on October!

Is it just me, or are these starters fantastic? Like seriously, these may be the best yet - I'm digging the legendaries too.
