Well I have to say, I was predicting a Pokémon Yellow remake in the style of Dragon Quest Monsters, but this will do me just fine. And suit me well it will.
Today, in the Nintendo Direct, Satoru Iwata announced the revelation. Generation 6. I have been looking through different forums, and the general masses are in awe. Some still find something to complain about however, although most people usually do anyway. I can find nothing to complain about.
The starting factor is - obviously - the starter Pokémon announced. There is nothing wrong with them except the rather peculiar names. Froakie - the water frog, Fennekin - the fire dog/cat crossover, and Chespin - what looks like a racoon/otter combination, and is the grass type.
The German names compared to these sound much better, those being Froxy, Fynx, and Igamaro respectively. And besides, people hated on Snivy last generation before they saw what it evolved into.
Now, the real analysis. 3D environments. Proper environments in battles. Psuedo-3D battle arenas. All these things have been asked by fans for ages. While it looks like we still only have four directions to move in, the areas we move in look so much better. While I also have a gripe about the movement itself, there is still time for improvement. And - rollerskates.
It seems that this time around, the bike, a Key Item and almost always used transport since the first Generation, seems to have been replaced with rollerskates. This is no bad thing, as they both allow us to move quickly through areas.
The battles have gone beyond that of Generation 5 with even more movement and animations. This is what I have been imagining. I even had plans to make a fake Generation 6 battle sequence before Black/White 2 were released in that style.
While this short amount of footage for the battles has us in awe, and comedy (if smashing a Magikarp in the face counts as such), it makes you think whether they really did look to Genius Sonority's Gamecube games for inspiration in the battle system.
But if this is what is available now, think what is going to be done with the next Generation, or even the second games of this Generation.
That's all I can think of now, apart from the fact that the legendaries are looking awesome as per usual. Now all we have to do is wait until as late as E3 (or earlier, if they want to be like that) for the next major announcements of these games, which, most likely, will be the story plot, enemy teams, and other major changes including Wi-Fi.
