Any changes in the dialogue relevance or anything else is fine by me. I dislike the fact that you can't be anything else other than a Pikachu in the game. Another thing that bothers me is that you have a smaller amount of partner poke's to choose from, making the varieties of gameplay awfully limited. Nevertheless, this is just a standalone from the other PMD's.
I'm not sure if I'll be buying this.
That's what I'm waiting for. If we could get these translations and at least get some idea of knowing what is to be expected, then I'll be more than willing to know more. What irritated me was seeing you (as the main character) turning into a Pikachu. I was assuming you'd stay as a Pikachu, wheras in the original dungeon games you could be anything. Since it is a standalone, I conclude that Pikachu was the only character you'd be in there gaming, having no relation or intent in being exactly like PMD: Blue, Red, Time, Darkness, etc.We don't actually know if Pikachu is the only 'mon you can play as, although it seems extremely unlikely, or how many different 'mons will be available for heroes/partners. They probably are waiting to reveal the entire roster. Remember, the game was only announced recently and we haven't even gotten translations of the first scans yet.
The images that show you different pokemon could be the partner selection, like in the other PMD games where you go down a list of pokemon, showing their mugshots. Other than that, I'm slightly convinced after taking a second look.Kenshi said:Since it's not confirmed, I don't think Pikachu's our only option. They're probably not that jerkish. Also, you can see images that show you turning into a different pokémon.
Like above, more dialogue for the recruits would be awesome. I also would like the idea of not degrading your partner to a generic 'mon like in Rescue Team, yet let you be another pokémon in the overworld, unlike Explorers. Playing as the legendary Zapdos while walking through a town was pretty funny.
Nah, don't worry about it. Big nintendo titles will be getting the eshop. Even past nintendo 3DS titles will be on the eshop eventually. Everything we've seen about Magnate points towards it being a new PMD.Also, it's going to be on the eShop? Well, NSMB2 got this treatment before, and that was pretty much an expansion pack of NSMBWii, so this worries me a bit. At least it looks better than the WiiWare PMDs so far.
Explorers of time doesn't have Pikachu, bro. It has munchlax! Darkness is the one with Pikachu. I never noticed actually. :O I got worried for no reason. Thanks a lot, man.Actually, they don't.
I know for certain that Explorers of Time only has Piplup and Turtwig (Pikachu doesn't count). Pretty sure Explorers of Darkness was the same.
