So, yeah, you've seen a billion posts about Pokemon X/Y thoughts and junk. My thoughts?

Well, I'm excited for a new game. I love all Pokemon no matter their shape size or similarity to odd objects. Heck, one of my absolute favorites from Gen 5 is Klinklang. I adored my big lovable Cog. <3

The new starters? I like 'em! Fennekin, of course, is the ultimate fan favorite. XD Because of that, I think I'll choose one of the other two when I get the game, which won't be for a while, since I'll probably be on my mission when it comes out. Oh well. I think Chespin is cute - it's like, a chipmunk with a chestnut husk hood. I think that's awfully cute. And Froakie? I figure he'll be the least popular, poor little fellow. But I think he's cute anyway. With the cloud/like bubble things around his neck, maybe we'll have the first half Ice starter, or maybe half-flying. A flying frog? That'd be pretty cool.

With the legendaries, I think they look awesome. The phoenix bird thing, is of course, a phoenix bird thing. And since we haven't had a true bird legendary in so long, why not? But I definitely love the deer guy. Oh heavens. He looks so much like the Forest God from Princess Mononoke.

Also, I usually rate Pokemon awesome-ness on how cool it would be to ride one. And both the phoenix and the deer get a strong 9 for me. (Raikou is a 10 - I mean, it's cloud is totally shaped like a saddle.)

Lots of folks will have their issues with the games and the characters and the new Pokemon, and that's okay. I just don't. :) Also, I really hope we won't get as bad as the Star Wars fans, bless their hearts. We should be happy that the Pokemon world is expanding and growing, and won't be stopping any time soon. Because I still want more adventures with Pokemon. :3

Alright, off the soap box now. Heh. I would go try and paint the new starters, but I feel sick today and have no motivation to paint. Bleerrgh.

i hope that with the games titles possibly hinting at a genetics theme,the breeding system will be changed to more represent real-life breeding, IE,shiny being a recessive trait,and such

I'm so hoping that somehow the Fennikin becomes a fire/flying type because how can you pass up the chance to have a flying fox pun? X3

Fire/flying? Aw yeah! :D
...Just not another Fire/Fighting. That' my biggest fear when it comes to Fennekin's evolutions.

I know, as much as I loved my Emboar I'm getting pretty bored of that combination. I just want a flying fox, be it starter or eeveelution based x-x

To be quite honest with you, I'm not looking forward to it. It just doesn't feel like POKEMON to me anymore, and I feel awful about it. I feel like they're just running out of ideas, and doing things to simply please their fans instead of adventuring out to try new things.

And I know everyone is going to be playing it, but honestly? I don't want to go out and spend MY money on a new system, and a game that i'm playing halfheartedly to keep up with the fandom.

I actually fell in love with Froakie the moment I saw it. It deserves to have a British accent and a bowtie and lots of tea. lol

And I thought the same thing when I saw the deer legendary!! I had to show my cousin a picture of the Forest God so he knew what I was talking about. lol

In the trailer, the main character was sdanding in front of a mirror. I think that means we can finally modelize our characters! I would be looking forvard to the game, but I don't have a 3DS. I'll maybe buy one when/if they start buying them with the game in one pack, but I have to wait for that. I should have bought one when I was buying my DSi XL... If I could have waited a little more time I would have had the money to buy 3DS... *Sigh* Oh, C'est La Vie! I think I can (have to) wait this time ^^

I just saw it and I'm really excited for this new game! Once it comes out, I'm getting a 3DS with the game, no exceptions. And, of course, I'm picking the water starter as always, Froakie. I will have it before it will become cool, like Mudkip was :)

As for the new legendaries, I'm getting the deer. I've always loved deer, like Deerling and Sawsbuck, so it's a no brainer for me to pick.

I'm waiting for more information before I decide which "letter" I'll choose. But the Legendary Deer one look awesome ^^

I think Fennekin captured everyone's heart ^-^ (Hehe,more Fox Pokémon...THE FOXES ARE TAKING OVER POKEMON WORLD!!)
The grass starter is kinda cute too,but the first thought was "WHAT THE HELL ?" XD
The frog is okay,I mean,he get the point because of the bubble collar <3 And the bubble in the top of it's mouth look like glasses or mustache....

Waiting for more awesomess to come ^^

Wait you think the thing is a phoenix? I thought it was a wyvern. (we need an awesome dragon legendary for once. Palkia, Dialga, Garatina, Reshiram, Zekrom, and Kuyrem don't fall under the "dragon" category to me.) Phoenixes are also awesome though.

Fennekin is adorable. I don't think I'll be able to get the game when it comes out so I'll have to see what the evos are like from other people.

And since this is the first calm look i've taken at the new games, let me get this out here and re-post to anything i see like this.

I think the fire starter. is cute, but not my favorite, especially if they turn it fire/fighting.
The grass starter? Seems to me like an oshawott reboot not a bad one. but one.
My favorite is the frog! oh my gerd, so cute. i hope it's part ice.

As for the legends. Meh, i like the deer, and the phoenix, but really i;m not as excited for those as i was for reshiram/zekrom

I'm Extremely happy it's in full 3d. i've been waiting since platinum.

some hopefuls?
A dark type gym.
a few new evolution. (maybe a new eeveelutions)
Maybe compatibility with older Ds models, so my Friend tim can stop whining.
A flying/fighting type

oh and personally More after game activities like a plot past the end, like gen 2, or a battle frontier. OH and gymleader rebattles.

:iconfroakieplz:<-- so cute look at it's glasses like things...<3

Fennecmon is best starter!

I also desperately need awesome Eeveelutions and then I'll have no complaints (aside from how terrible X and Y are as names. The least they could have done was spell them with Unown and make Unown relevant again.)

I'd be happy even with just one of those. ;0; Such wonderful types. That sounds like it'd be an awesome way to evolve a ghost. :'D It would be a little difficult, too. I wish that'd happen. ;;

I pray that the Fox doesn't evolve into a Fire-fighting....as for the other two, hmm...the Frog may as well be from Chrono Trigger, and the Chipmunk...I hope he doesn't become a pure grass or a Grass Ground.

How about you dont complain and just simply accept what each game has to offer? Why does everyone expect perfection in these games? Why not just allow yourself to just marvel at how amazing the pokemon world itself is and not the statistics of the pokemon?
