I'm sorry Smashchu, did you see my post?
Pokémon is dying? I don't mean to be rude but, are you dense? Over 30 million copies sold of the DPPtHGSS generation means it's dying?
You do realize that Nintendo bringing up Black and White so soon after the release of HGSS means they're trying to get their sales up, and they use one of their most profitable and popular franchises, right?
I'm from Spain but live in New York. In both places, when a game comes out, the lines are full of people whose ages range from 10 to 30 at least. I was also recently in the Pokémon VGC. The line for the senior section in the Newark tournament was approximately 700 people. 700 over 16 years old. All with DPPtHGSS games.
I guess your Wal-Mart isn't very indicative of the sales of Pokémon, really.
Also, Off topic.
That maid-like thing that some people think is related to Jynx looks like a really bad drawing. The sarcophagus pokemon is kind of cool, but that maid-looking pokemon and the giant mole is ugly.
Don't know why allot of people are calling them ugly, as I personally think all these new Pokemon look fantastic. They all look really hardcore, creative and allot more mature (especially when compared to the ugly childish 3rd gen's), although I guess its all down to personal taste.
I for one am greatly looking forward to this generation, with it so far having some of the best Looking Pokemon in ages, especially that Green Dinosaur/Mantis. Can't wait to see their Artwork.
Sorry don't remember their names...
Green Dinosaur/Mantis - Best looking of the group, maybe a Bug/Dragon type? Could also be the new Garchomp/Dragonite. Looks like it will be more of a less powerful one not a psuedo legendary
Sarcophagus - Definitely a Ghost type, can't wait to see its front, really cool design so far however. Maybe Ghost/Ground or Ghost/Steel? Found in the desert in a pyramid in a one day event like Drifloon.
Mole 1 & 2 - I am assuming they are in the same evo family. The Little one looks cute, the bigger one however looks strange with the thing on its head (needs a better image I think), although it looks like it might be a retractable helmet?, however the Megalon like Drill Hands look awesome, Ground/Steel? or Dark/Steel?
Tarantula - Hello Ariados evo? That or an all new Bug/Electric type (based on colour alone).
Red Spiky Boulder Tank - Looks like a defensive beast, clearly a Rock or Steel type. Can't wait for the Art of this one, also have a feeling that this is the pre-evo.
Green Doll in a Blob - Looks interesting, like an amoeba, can't decide on its typing, maybe Grass/Ghost?
Emo Doll - Another Possible Ghost type? (making a potential of three), or a female only Pure Dark Type? Thing this is my least favorite. Bannete Evo mabye?
I just don't like the fact they're revealing so many. We have now like what, 20? :\ Say there will be a total of 100 new Pokémon. We already know a fifth of them. Quite sad really, because I love those 3/4 days of excitement and happiness after the games arrive where every bit of information is revealed in a heartbeat.
Other than that, I'm cool with the rest. I don't give a butt if they're cute or not, as long as they're competitively capable. The three on three battle system sounds unnecessary, but I'm sure they pulled off something to make it useful, or at least fun.
So you're calling anyone who isn't complaining and enjoying the games a moronic idiot? Then why are you on a POKEMON site? I'm sorta happy with all this, I just hope triple battling is more novelty and not seen frequently. I love the mantis and the sarcophagus, I think Suigomori (sp?) will do them all more justice with the stock art.Feel free to criticize my opinion. At least I'm not an moronic idiot who likes everything that's shoved one's throat.
