Yeah, wow, October seems really really soon!!! Wow. It's really cool how they've already done this much work for it :o I'm imagining usually they're doing lots and lots really close to time.

managing to release worldwide at the same time genuinely does feel like a cool achievement, so I'm going to totally give iwata that one. wow he was such a cutie. he's probably a fennekin.

After watching the trailer again I just noticed that there'll be roller blades. Hopefully they don't replace the bicycle D:

(Admittedly this is mostly because my remaining nuzlocke pokémon will surely get murdered in the process, especially because scrafty has STAB SE against absolutely ALL of them. My poor handful of surviving babies! D: )
Hey, at least if the scrafty thing goes well you're just aiming to beat the E4. I'm actually making an effort to get as close to complete in this game as I can (go die in a hole, 1000 tag log medal), since I never do that anymore, and I still have to get all the pokémon, all the medals, get back into the side game stuff I've let go since I've been focusing on the dex, actually finish the postgame story... ffff October why

On the other hand, I guess that's a decent enough length of time for me to figure out how Gen VI is going to affect my fakemon crap, at least.

Speaking of fakemon, of course the speculative evos are already pouring in D: I'm trying super hard not to like any of them because I don't want to be disappointed, but I've seen some chespin and froakie evos that are so prettyyyyy ;-;

Well yeah, but that doesn't mean that it's necessarily likely to actually be put into action! You know what the fandom's like; they'll hang onto ideas forever. Kratos' idea kind of makes sense though, but I'm still not sure they'd want to throw the starter typings off like that.

The suggestion was kind of facetious to start with! I'm not... really putting too much stock into that, haha.

Whoops while I'm sorta sad to see sprites go ((what will we make terrible edits of now?????)) the 3D makes up for it because Pokemon actually attacking each other is better! And no more grid for the overworld, yeah! And Paris!

All I want is for the starters to have interesting type combos when they evolve aaaaaagh. A part Flying type would be really nice but improbable I guess :U

Oh yeah, BW2 might have been the last generation for sprinters D:

Also, I already know that I'm getting Y version. The legendary just looks too amazing.

I like all the starters! I'm debating between choosing Fennekin or Froakie, but it really depends on what the final evo's are like. I also really like the deer legendary!

Not sure if it's been posted yet, but I know what the Fire and Water starters are based off of (Fennec Fox and frog), but I have no idea what the Grass starter is based off of.

Fire starter, here I come (as per usual)!

Chespin is a hedgehog, according to what its names mean in other languages.

Now that that's out of the way, I can properly discuss my thoughts on the Pokemon.

Chespin for some reason looked really familiar. I couldn't place my finger on it...Until I saw this picture on Tumblr comparing it to Cub from Happy Tree Friends.

Fennekin is my favorite. Even better, in my starter-type-rotation that I use to decide which starter I pick, Fire is up next.

Froakie looks hilarious and cute. Not much else to say.

The title legandaries are weird looking to me, but in a 'different and cool' way, not a 'stupid and obnoxious' way.

Also, calling it now: Chespin and Froakie will evolve into a Grass/Fighting and Water/Fighting type respectively.

I am excited but I would be more excited if I didn't have this cloud over my head going NO SPRITES NO SPRITES NO SPRITES (probably). I hated the new graphics by proxy for a while before giving that up and enjoying them.

Froakie is the best, but vulpix and grasshawot are cool too! My friend actually has a theory that Froakie is a composery sort of thing, like how its foamy bits look kind of like composer hair! Also croaking.

1. ARE YOU ME we are having very similar thoughts

2. My only hope is that they'll have sprites for all the pokémon for, I dunno, stat screens or the pokédex or something.
