No idea how that's going to work. I presume there's a new mechanic in the battles which improves your Pokemon's stats the more you battle with it along with the likes of IVs and EVs although I thought that the Evs already did that to an extent...

Does that mean pokemon get a sort of 'friendship boost'??? I like that if so, looks like it will be similar to the anime if they do something like that.

I think he just means EXP points, levelling up, etc. Saying it in an ambiguous way makes people speculate and get intrigued/excited about the new game only to be disappointed, but who cares once you've given them the money.

Prove me wrong Masuda...

Maybe it will work like other RPGs that use "affinity" (like Xenoblade/Pokemon Conquest etc)
You can boost happiness in past Pokemon games but it didn't affect the battles themselves. Sounds interesting.

Sounds interesting but I'm not sure they really need to add anything to the battle system, it's pretty perfect as it is...that said, it will encourage people to build legit teams rather than Pokésav everything in!

...Actually nah, the Pokésaving will continue lol
My Youtube career kinda ended, so...I really have nothing to put here anymore...

OMIGAWD :DDDDD
I was slightly tearing up at this, I've been playing these games since the very first one came out. Its incredible at how much progress there has been in these games <3
It would be wonderful if they had the poketransfer system in this as well, I really want all my top pokemon in this :)
*Has been transporting pokemon from the first game they added that to, eevee was my best and i evolved it into glaceon in the diamond game, I really would like to see how all of the older generation pokemon look in this new 3D form :D
Though I do think this could become a favorite if it all plays out well, so to speak. Pokemon Sapphire/Ruby/Emerald are still my top favorite games of the whole series. Can't wait till X and Y come out~
So, to be out there:
I'm def picking Fennekin, so don't get too jealous vulpix :wink:
IM SUPER EXCITED OMIGAWD
and i'll be back to my roots of always picking a fire type starter, excepting the black/white series, I hated the starters excepting Oshawott, even then I could only just tolerate it -_-
I know no one cares but IM SO HAPPEH *dies of happiness*
