    Is it only me or did they make Noivern with big speakers on its head ?

    I really didn't like the new Pokemon design, the only one that got into my mind is Talonflame.

    Hmm, that would be very interesting- though Kingdra didn't have to lose a type- so this one losing a type would be a bit weird- but not too weird- right Onix?? [ONIIIXXX]

    It's nice to finally have a high-quality image of the crab/lobster Pokemon. I still think Clauncher looks slightly reductive, but I guess I should be glad that it's not orange like the Krabby line or the Corphish line. I have no comment to make about Skrelp since I've pretty much made my point about it looking like a Kingdra/Octillery hybrid clear, but Talonflame looks worse than I thought. And the name itself makes me cringe really bad. It's so unoriginal. Out of the five Pokemon revealed today, Talonflame is definitely my least favorite.

    And yet we don't know how it's pronounced yet (Pokemon.com isn't working for me atm so I'm not sure if they showed it). I remember some being surprised on Verizion's pronouncing being Ver-I-zee-on.

    And the pun doesn't have to match the design.

    omg pikachu's reactions in pokemon-amie are adorable! i hope it's not just a useless feature. although having it affect a battle as much as raising evasion and crit-hit ratio is a bit wierd IMO.
     
  9. I'll agree on the name Talonflame. haha, kinda dumb. Design looks great, though.

    And I'm sorry, but Skrelp does a great job of differentiating itself from the Horsea line, in both typing and overall coloring/design.

    Anyone catch this on the PokeBeach feed?

    "6:43: Backtracking, but there was apparently a new Fire-type shown that looks like a small dog."

    ^Think there's anything to this, or a misconception?

    *~*

    I'm still holding out hope that CoroCoro or Smash! will give us info on Xerneas and Yveltal's types. The mystery is beginning to sicken me lol.

    I wish they'd just spill the beans on the Fairy type's matchups.

    As much as I'd love for it to not be super effective against Dark types, it probably will be, which will likely kill the competitive viability of my favorite Pokemon (Whose lack of a double weakness was one of its saving graces in comparison to other dragons). Incidentally, said Pokemon also happens to be the one getting picked on by Sylveon in a new piece of art that was posted on the website...

    I love the facial feature thing! It is like they've rolled a primitive hey there Pikachu! or whatever it is called, into the game- pretty cute idea- especially Sylveon jigging about after =3

    Though the increased battle abilities seems a little gamebreaking- depends on how much, especially when combined with items and abilities like Super Luck- I suppose it is to give a bit more ingame, like getting to the elite four- you're pokemon will be really bonded with you and have a easier time landing criticals- I reckon the ingame difficulty will be stepped up A LOT because of this- but I wouldn't mind the challenge :)

    I reckon that feature will be disabled online anyway, too much fanrage!

    I guess pikachu must be featured in the regional dex, it has cropped up so many times- but it is Pikachu so bah :p

    OMG, finally a regional bird that isn't Normal/Flying. Thank you Game Freak!

    Other Pokemon look neat, too.

    Was thinking of it too! Poison/Dragon.. Well technically Seadra didn't lose its water typing it gained Dragon type. Skrelp might be Surskit which became Bug/Flying instead of retaining its water type when it evolves to Masquerain..

    Yupo. Indeed.

    So now I only have one more slot to fill!

    Even with Fennekin and Talonflame might end up having the same fire type they have secondary typing anyways so its all cool for an in-game..

    As I mentioned this might be the hardest team choosing GEN so far for me. As its only 1/4 of the overall new pokes introduced and yet I almost have filled the 6 pokemon party! Its rare for me.. Last gen I'd only had Serperior, Galvantula, Mienshao and Archeops..

    Gardevoir didn't manage to OHKO Hydreigon in the gameplay video, it had a "super effective" hit and got over half way, so I'm assuming that's just from its Fairy-typing doing damage to its Dragon-typing. I think that's a sign that Dark types are safe from the Fairies. Maybe Dark types will end up being super effective against Fairies?

    Who knows, but I think it's safe to say Fairy won't be super effective against Dark ^_^

    Do any of you think the DNA splicers will be obtainable in the game? Or we might be able to trade of the Kyurem form, but the game gives you the option to do so and it tells you that once you trade it over you can't change its form again. I really hope I can have my White kyurem. If I can't... oh well.
