Pokemon Cries

Discussion in 'Past Pokémon Generations Discussion' started by Venom Turtle, Jul 15, 2009.

    Has anyone noticed that all the newer pokemon such as gen 3 and more so gen 4 pokemon have nice, mostly soft on the ears, cries. Whereas the pokemon from gen 1 and gen 2 still have ear wrenching ones in gen 4. Do you think they will redo them for HG/SS?
  2. Well, the older pokemon have such horrendous cries because the game systems back then weren't as complex as the newer ones, thus the hardware could only handle the simple cries (from what I think). Compare the music from R/B/Y to some from D/P/Pt and you'll understand what I'm trying to say.

    And I don't think they'd change the cries in HG/SS. I mean, these are remakes, not new games altogether. Remakes keep much of the old, basic stuff but just revamping it to fit today's standards. If they didn't fix the cries in FR/LG and in D/P/Pt I doubt they'll fix the cries in HG/SS... Maybe in the next, new games, but not in these remakes.

    I just thought of something, shouldn't this be in the HeartGold and SoulSilver section?

    yea I know what you're saying about the old system, some of my friends and I were just talking about it and I figured I'd throw it out here to see what everyone else thought.

    Well I didn't think to add that last part about HG/SS until I was about to post it so I guess you'd be right there.

    Not all of the new ones have nice soft ones... namely Staraptor... but yeah the older ones just sound like machines

    The cries will be kept the same for practicality purposes. The only Pokemon who's cry has ever changed was Pikachu, and that was just for yellow. Other Pikachu that appeared in Yellow had Pikachu's original cry.

    Yeah, I have noticed this about some of the Pokemon cries.

    i actually like the older ones better they remind me of when i first started playing pokemon more than ten years ago. plus i think most of the new ones are annoying/dumb like roserade staraptor and togekiss to name a few

    But Togekiss' cry is nice.
    Gallade's too.

    Have you listened to Rampardos cry? "ROOOOAAAARGGH"

    All these things they have now to make the poke's cries. There's so many possibilities that now each poke really has a unique cry, unlike some pokes in the first and second gen, like in that other topic.

    I think that the old cries were obnoxious, I mean... Persian. Electabuzz. Nidorino. The only ones I like there are Nidoking and Articuno.
    Johto started to show slight improvement, but not much. I like Scizor and Totodile.
    Hoenn was when they started to get much better, with cries like Manectric and Blaziken.
    Sinnoh cries I say were tied in goodness with Hoenn, in my opinion. I like Gallade, Dusknoir, and ... dare I say it, Togekiss.

    That's my "review".

    I really love the old cries, they make them cooler, gives a nostalgic feeling and I can remember them easily, I'd hate it if they changed them.

    I know they haven't changed the old cries for HG/SS but I really hope that they will in the future. Hopefully in Gen V. A lot of the old cries have the potential to sound really great instead of electronic. Eeevee is one of the worst I think.

    I doubt they'll change the cries, or even update them to a new sound, while sounding basically the same. There's a lot more to do with the games besides revamping something old that works just fine.

    Hopefully they change Kricketunes cry in the future. It's proberly the only cry I dispise.

    I would really love it if Pokemon cries were like that of the show it's better on the ears and it's just better. How cool would it be if Pikachu actually sounded like Pikachu when you choose it out or any pokemon.

    As a franchise, Pokemon places its older games at quite a high esteem, so I don't think they'll change their cries, which is a good thing to say the least.

    I don't think they will re-do them.

    They might redo them. If they are redoing the games, anthing is possible. i like the current cries though. It reminds me of the good old days.

    I doubt they will be redone, unless pokemon survives to a time in the future where the 1st and maybe 2nd gen cries stand-out as to be obvious to even new players who've never played. In any case I'd prefer the cries to stay the same then for them to replace cries with the pokemon saying its actual name in plain english (or whatever other language the game is being played in), which would be more obnoxious to me personally than even the most techno sounding of all the current cries. I do admit, some pokemon could use redos, like zubat's ear bleeding cry.
