You said everything I've been thinking. Well done. I didn't like how they ended the tradition of the cool boxarts. This one reminds me more of the pokepark or whatever that game was called.I, for one, am not much of a fan of this box art. Every other Mystery Dungeon game has always had an interesting use of Sugimori's artwork depicting a group of Pokemon discovering a chest or even exploring a (supposed) dungeon. This one is just a bunch of Pokemon slapped on a (somewhat) colorful background. Of course the box art is nothing to be concerned about, but considering that it's the most recent MD news, I might as well express my thoughts on it, right?
I'm also becoming even more discouraged on the possibility of more starters, as the box art shows just the 5 Pokemon we've known since the beginning. Combine that fact with the trailer only showing the same 5 Pokemon on the selection screen, and that pretty much confirms it. I still have a little hope, but it's dwindling at this point.
I'm not sure if that's likely, but I do know that in the previous PMD titles, you received either a bow, badge or whatever the hell you took from the Exploration Kit.Maybe, you get a scarf or bow determining on the gender of your Hero Pokemon?
They did the cover this way to show of those ring things, from when you scan an item to unlock a dungeon, since its a fairly important new development for the series (or at least it appears to be). I don't think people would like the cover much if it showed pokemon being sucked/diving into a black hole.Yea it reminds me of the pokepark cover. Maybe the same guys that made that cover made this one? That's maybe why it's not creative at all.

I sense some Tron lines on this art. But I have to admit those rings have a possible story world value like the Time Gears shown in the explorers boxart. But I have to say the art is not so bad but could still be better
Yea, that's what I meant. The overworld sprites. I really want to see the scarfs and bows, since it's in 3D, we just might.http://dsmedia.gamespy.com/ds/image/article/989/989816/pokemon-mystery-dungeon-explorers-of-sky-20090602035504988_640w.jpg
Just one of the screenshots in the game. But I do see what you're saying about the overworld design. You never do see them with scarfs or bows. They solely contribute on a stat (unless it says "radiating aura" or something like that)
I don't think all of them will be included since it's a spin off. But, I could be wrong. Also, I think it's good they showed Jolteon (maybe that's early in the game), usually we would encounter Eevee and its evolved forms after we beat the game.In the trailer, there was a Jolteon. It would be cruel of them to not include all Pokémon.
Every single Dungeon game so far has had all the Pokémon in themI don't think all of them will be included since it's a spin off. But, I could be wrong. Also, I think it's good they showed Jolteon (maybe that's early in the game), usually we would encounter Eevee and its evolved forms after we beat the game.
