It was so obvious they were going to announce Gen VI before the actual presentation. They've never done one before and they made a big deal out of it. Masuda said Pokémon will evolve. Logical conclusion would be Gen VI and would have been surprised to see anything else.
The history of the games made me smile so much!! And when he was showing it all, you could tell he was going to announce Gen Vi, taking a giant leap as well as he was saying that Pokémon always takes use of everything. And with the narrowing dates, not just for Pokémon as he was pointing out, but for all big Nintendo games, I would have been surprised the the release wasn't simultaneous.
I was also very intrigued by the mirror. It could be an added customisation, but maybe it's just trying to show how far the graphics have come.
The visuals are breathtaking! It's sad to see sprites go, but then a guess the day had to come. And I'm not complaining...as they are absolutely amazing!! The world looks frickin' fantastic!! I can't wait to see more of it! Ooo, and how it's going to look in 3D, ahhh!!
When they showed the silhouettes, I thought "Damn! It's going to be like last time when they kept teasing us with silhouettes!"!! Like I said in my prediction, I thought they were going to show at least a couple of new Pokémon, and feared we'd be teased with silhouettes, which would drive me crazy and would have kept screaming "SHOW THEM." HAHA!. So glad that they did!! Definitely Fire for me too. I always get fire, so it's kinda moot. But Fennekin does look super cool! I can't wait to see how they all evolve! I want more already!
The new 3D battle system looks fantastic. Can't believe you turn it off on other games Marti. But glad you'll keep this one on. This blows BW version of 'dynamic' out of the water! It does make you think of the 3D battle systems on the home consoles, very dynamic! And it did make me think just how great Pokémon Stadium 3 could be!! WANT!
The legendaries look amazing!! I love how they both signify the letters, the bird being shaped as a Y and the Deer being shaped as an X (when it spreads it legs out that is, in the video it's more of a Y pose). They fit them nearly exactly with the colours being the same. Also, for Y, it has the wavy, flow 4 branch part on each end (like Y legend has claws on each end =, but only 3), and X has the wavy bits only at the top (like the Deer has branchy antlers, but normal legs). Definitely mascots for each version, I'd say.
The XY part to me immediately struck me as genetics related. I know you could have Z version and have it represent dimensions, but I didn't think so. I somehow think that they would more likely to X2 Y2. I think the storyline will be based around genetics this time. Maybe the baddies have some sort of gene splicer and it can help them make something amazing. Flashbacks of Mewtwo storyline and DNA obviously makes me think of Deoxys. I think that they are definitely going down a DNA storyline, but we'll have to see.
All in all, a short, sweet and AMAZING presentation! So hyped for this game!! Can't wait!!
