I am by no means a pokemon fan let me tell you now however when I heard this news I knew I had to make a blog post of it. You might be wondering why but the truth is I still like pokemon. Yes you heard me. I am a 23 year old dude and still fond of pokemon somewhat but I dont really play the games.
After watching the trailer video for pokemon X and Y game coming for the nintendo 3DS I got inspired. It looks so fantastic, a geeks dream is for the actual fantasy creatures to come to real life. finally a pokemon game in 3D but you know what, fans have actually been waiting for a game like that ever since the rise of 3D graphics and the other games such as pokemon coloseum where you actual walk around and capture pokemon. The only thing that was wrong with that pokemon colloseum game is that the world it was in was just too small. However this new installment of pokemon will put the metal to the pedal.
The 3D world
Why is this such a big deal. Well at least for the fans pokemon games have always been in 2 D even those for the recent nintendo DS. So taking the 2D graphics to a whole new 3D modeled world with buildings and trees that are actually in your surrounding, for the fans it is such a big deal. Its like for anime fans when death note came out as a live action movie. It is just that next step in being a fan that drives you and crave more of the game or anime in a more advanced way. Pokemon never fails to amaze me and also not only will it be in 3D graphics but there will be a new region of pokemons as well. Yes that is right. Remember the Kanto leagues and Johto as well senno and heon leagues with all those new pokemons that came out for the past two decades. Yes I am not sure what will be the new league or region this time, no information has bee release on it.
Moving in the new 3D world.
Remember in the early pokemon games like gold and silver or ruby and sapphire. Those games were awesome but one of the most memorable things about those games is how you were able to move through the world as you do in real life. I am talking about vehicles. In pokemon you can buy a bike and move around the pokemon world. There were also running shoes which came available in the ruby and sapphire games. It was fun and it was the best.
Now in the new pokemon x and Y game for nintendo 3DS, you will be able to roller skate. Now I am not sure there will be other features to the game but this one was revealed in the trailer video. You will also be able to choose between a male or female character in the game. Of course the little rivaly story will also be on. It is something that must happen in every pokemon. It motivates people to keep on playing as it should and also as a pokemon trainer. Like ash, he had gary as a rival if you ever followed the pokemon series. (I dont watch it anymore but I keep up with pokemon) Yes I am a geek like that.
Pokemon masters staying in contact with each other.
According to the CEO of the pokemon company called pokefreak. Gamers will be able to do more than just pokemon battle with their friends and trade pokemons from now on. Gamers will be able to collect their friends data so that they can meet them in the pokemon world as they play. You will be able to pokemon battle no matter where you are as long as you have collected your friends data. This means that you can challenge each other in a pokemon game and on and on. This also means that you wont have to wait to meet up with the person to battle and trade stuff but instead you will be able to immediately do these things using the internet with your nintendo 3DS how cool is that my friends.
The new Started pokemons my friends
For some reason the new pokemons are starting to look less and less like pokemons and more like digimons. (Do you agree. Many people have told me the same thing).
Anyways the new started pokemons look interesting. The usual fire, water and grass. Personally I always go with fire some reason. Grass types seem to be every where but when it comes to fire pokemon they seem to be hard to find. Water type pokemons can easily be acquire with a fishing rod.
Here they are folks
Chespin is a grass type starter pokemon. His name is combine with the words chestnut and pin.
Fennikin is a fire type started pokemon. This cute little fox was inspired by actual Fennec desert fox.
Frakie is a water started pokemon. A cute little frog with big eyes. A little repetitive I think. We already have a frog pokemon I believe but does not hurt to creature another one of difference.
Once your started pokemons evolve I believe they will have more than one type. That is also a new thing with pokemon now. Each pokemon seems to have more than two types like fire and rock. This makes the game more of a challenge and interesting dont you think.
You know it is funny. Pokemon is the only game where they actually announce the release date before it comes out. Other games are left in the dark and are not announced until six months before the game. So yes Pokemon x and y will be release in the US in october 2013. I bet the japanese are already playing the damn game.
new Legendary pokemons
The new legendary pokemons appear to be as the title states. X and Y. X is for the legendary pokemon of the land and Y is for the legendary pokemon of the sky ( there is always a sky pokemon). So it seems like there will be some battle between the land and the sky this time. THe X and Y.
I wont say much about the game play except that it is in 3D now much like the nintendo 64 game that came out in the 90′s my friends. The battle graphics are better and it will look much like the anime as far as the fights. each pokemon will be standing on a circle resembling the area that they are in.
