    Definitely a lot more improvements than I initially thought. I still think Gamefreak could have made the game look better outside of battles but the in-battle graphics are pretty nice.

    Still, it’s not terrible and I’d imagine it’d only get better just like the difference between Diamond/Pearl and B/W.

    Hopefully Ruby and Sapphire get remade next!

    • komiko12

      They should definitely improve graphics outside of battles. Still don’t like the model of the Main Character.

      • Brion Valkerion

        Same, the characters look super young this time. We all know they were supposed to be young, but kinda had that teenager vibe to their full artwork. Now they all look like they are straight out of a children show.

        Wonder if the story will continue on a more serious tone like Black and White had also.

      • Pockystix

        I actually like this better than the route they went with SMT4. There’s a better balance here in environmental graphics, and combat graphics.

  • So, the first Gym Leader will be using Bug-type Pokemon.

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      Chespin is going to have problems :/

      • Chris Yuen

        I’m picking Fennekin. You can’t go wrong with a Fire starter.

        • ShawnOtakuSomething

          I ether go with the flow~, or stay mellow when with picking my staters , If you get what I mean ^_^

        • Steven Higgins

          Unless it’s part Fighting in its final evolution.

      • DuskSharkEX

        Not too much problems – one of the screenshots showed he gets Rollout at LV8.

        • J_Joestar

          If it gets defense curl, it may just steamroll the whole gym on it’s own.

    • Kai2591

      which type beats bug again? Sorry, my Pokemon knowledge has rusted considerably (My last game was Ruby).

      • Panda

        Flying, Rock and Fire ;)

        • Kai2591

          ah, I see. Thanks, fellow trainer!

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    I simply can not wait!!!

    Sylveon use HEY, LISTEN!

    Slyveon uses HEY, LISTEN!


    • Detrimont

      foe’s pokemon fainted out of annoyance

  • Kai2591

    yay friends!

  • Slayven19

    This looks great, I still have more hype for the 3ds lineup this year than the wiiU one.

    • Anime10121

      Yep, me too, but thats because the WiiU barely has a lineup this year :(

      But next year, OOHHHHHH, next year, SO MUCH HYPE!

      Smash bros
      Bayonetta 2

      enough to justifying paying full launch price for WiiU!

  • Pockystix

    I think I’m gonna have a gaggle of fairies on my team. . . that didn’t sound as awesome as I imagined.

    however, it did sound absolutely fabulous.

  • Raltrios

    I reeeeeally want RSE remade in this style. Hoenn is my favourite region because of how lush the forests and how craggy the mountains/caves are. Simply put, the natural environments were awesome.
    Imagine how immersive they’d be like this…!

  • Sergio Briceño

    Oh game looks so pretty. Also, glad they are back to kid characters.

    • Mnstrzero00

      When did they do adult characters?

      • Steven Higgins

        They didn’t but B/W/B2/W2 had teenagers. Like 14-15 rather then 10-11

        • Sergio Briceño

          Exactly. I don’t know why but there is a certain charm about 10 year olds going on a Pokémon adventure around the world. It’s probably the anime’s fault.

        • Spider-Man

          The oldest Protagonist was Wes from the Colosseum game, he was 17. I really miss that. I like playing closer to my age. :

        • Renaldi Saputra

          is that so? I think only the body postures that look like teenagers but it wasn’t told about the ages.. usually they said “10 yrs old travelling to be a pokemon master”

        • Suicunesol


  • Anime10121

    Short trailer is short…

    But still awesome!

    After playing the excellent Black/White, I’m extremely hyped for these new entries, and cant wait to see all these evolutions (pun intended) in gameplay :D

  • DarthSithZero

    Can’t wait to see more legendaries, new dragons, how the last stage of the pokemons on this game will look, the tension is killing me i NEED this NOW

  • Detrimont

    That speaker bat/dragon pokemon is awesome

  • Detrimont

    I hope all the new gyms are awesome, i like ones with puzzle elements, and lately, aside from a few, there havent been that many like that

  • Steven Higgins

    Okay, did anyone else think that the girl standing next to the Gym looked a LOT like Elesa?

    • Sergio Briceño

      You mean the maid? She was only there for half a second, but yeah, that is obviously Elesa in a slutty maid uniform XD

      • Symbol de Au


        • Sergio Briceño

          Any maid who starts a conversation with “Hey stranger” and ends it with “on your Roller Skates the best thing ever” is slutty.

          Just saying.

          • Symbol de Au

            It’s not a maid…It’s a girl in sports clothes and helmet on roller blades.

          • Sergio Briceño

            It was really hard to tell without a still image and even the screenshot you provided doesn’t fully show her attire. But on a closer look I did spot her helmet.

            But you have to agree about the slutty line though…

          • Symbol de Au

            No, I don’t…

  • Black Cateprie and a redesigned Venomoth…

  • Vash bane

    now my hype just skyrocketed :/


    nice looking good full 3d

  • Linhua

    … they are finally getting to that 3D world that i’ve always wanted to explore…

    … while i’m pleased to see this…

    … I have forgotten why they will never do a PKMN MMORPG for the Wii U.

    … must have been some real bull shit for me to have forgotten it already .-.
