New Pokemon games coming November 2014!
« on: May 07, 2014, 06:50:38 PM »
I didn't see another thread for this. If there's already a thread for this, mods, feel free to lock or delete this thread! NOW! On with the news!

This November, two new Pokemon games will be released! Pokemon Omega Ruby and Pokemon Alpha Sapphire! Who knew all those "Hoenn Confirmed!" memes would be correct?

Since I dunno how to add actual videos to this post, here's the link to the announcement:

Not a very exciting trailer. I'm sure more info will come out over the next few months. SO! Thoughts?

I got this news from Leafeon over text, and I must sayyyyy...

I'm not all that excited.

under the block because unpopular opinion (click to show/hide)So my problem is that RSE are my second least-favorite games of the series. I found most of the pokemon designs to be boring, the story was boring, the evil team lacked any kind of malice, and it was just overall MEH. Emerald was the first game I ever filled the pokedex in, but more because I had nothing else to play and less because I legitimately enjoyed it.
I appreciate what the games brought to the series (Nature, Abilities, etc etc) and first all-color of the series, but... beyond that, I found them lacking in anything particularly special.

There will likely be a fusion, akin to White/Black Kyurem, there will likely be more Megas (Sceptile and Swampert plz). The game will be in 3D. Friend Safari inclusion is very possible...

...What else?

And it isn't that X/Y were all that WHOA SO NEW either, but the 3D interface caught attention, and Megas were a confusing positive. I feel like so many things they could add are just to the point of being incredibly expected now.

I guess we could have secret bases in trees again?
Woo.

I JUST DONT KNOW.

I feel like I want to be excited, but most of me is just like... I don't know...

R/S was the only generation I never played. I was moving on to other games at the time, and honestly the new species didn't excite me like the second gen did. I really don't see myself buying this because I have never cared about R/S like so many other fans have.

The only bright side to this is this will cease all of the annoying "oh meh gerd R/S REMAKE!" conspiracy posts on Poke memes.

....Now we get to read even more "R/S REMAKE IS REAL" posts instead. :/

Ruby was the first Pokemon game I was really into, actually. I then went on to FireRed, and eventually got back into Yellow. But Hoenn was my first big region that pops to mind when I think of playing Pokemon. I played to completion with every starter.

So... This is causing things.

I'm more excited for the mega evolutions, personally. As for the titles, that's kind of mean. Alpha and Omega? Where are the wolf pokemon, Nintendo?

So, speculation time. I'm assuming the box art is showcasing Groudon and Kyogre's mega evolutions. Based on that theory, I think Rayquaza will also have the same "theme." (Bright machine looking designs.) What do you guys think of them?

So Beta Rayquaza?  I really don't know how I feel about the tag line titles of these remakes. It brings mecha shows to mind. Like I think of Gundam or Voltron or a dozen other robot shows before I would ever think Pokemon.

I hope it's less a Mega thing and more a Fusion thing, actually. I don't like Legendaries having megas to begin with and I also think they didn't use the fusion aspect of BW2 to it's potential. Just me, though. I guess mega would make sense.

I am hoping for more Megas, though, but for pokemon that actually need it instead of pseudo legendaries who already had ridiculous stats to begin with... Sigh.

The names Alpha and Omega actually work for me, I don't know what they'd name them otherwise. Ruby and Sapphire are such odd colors and nothing quite goes with them.

The 3 and the 4th gens are the only ones that I never completed. Never played 4th gen and the emmulator that I was using for Emerald ran into a game-ending bug before the last gym, so I never finished the game. So I'm pretty excited for the chance to finish it, and to finish it with a legitimate game, instead of an emmulator.

Rayquayza is my second favorite Pokemon ever, after Charizard.

My expectations are high for that dude.

To be honest I'd rather the spin offs of X and Y over these. But then again, gen 3 came out at the time I was in that teenage stage of "ugh Pokemon seriously?". So that might also explain why I'm not too hyped.

He is a very sweet serpent.

When it comes to the 3rd gen remake though I really don't think it's old enough to warrant a remake. It's barely 10 years old. The first two gens made sense because they're were barely in color when they debuted. I don't think there's enough to enhance or improve the 3rd gen to justify a complete remake, so it feels more like a cash grab than any of the other games.

My big question: How much longer must I wait for another Pokemon Pinball game??  That was the best spin off in the franchise.  Some could argue that would be a cash grab, but that's because they've never played it.

I never got a chance to play the original gen 3, given that I never owned a GBA. I want to get a GBA and play the originals before I get the remakes.

Fusions might be cool, but... I'm not so sure how it would play into an older game . As for Emerald, They might just make it part Alpha and Omega like they made Crystal part of HeartGold & SoulSilver.

Yes on a new pinball game. I loved those. <3

What if they bring back...Contests? How would they implement that in 3D? Maybe it'll be like the anime?

YES!

Combine move pokemon battles! That was one thing I liked better about the anime than the games and that was May's Beautifly's combination of Gust and Silver Wind.
