Can't say much other than the fact that Lugia looks really mad.
Edit: Wait, what's with that Pichu?
Looks Shiny. Could be the rival of that Notch-Eared Pichu.
That Larvitar does not really look happy. Kinda pissed aswell.
I don't know why, but the Girl kinda makes me think of Tomoki from Frontier. Must be the hat.
XD Someone said that somewhere.
Lugia and Larvitar look pissed off as hell
Eh? Who's the characters? The don't look much like Gold and Crystal... Did the rival-type character change design as well? Of course, I could just be seeing things, but I sure as hell don't recognize the girl...
As for the Pichu... looks like a generic run-of-the-mill Pichu to me.
Gold's pretty much the same but they took out the hoodie pocket D: It's not crystal as it was in Crystal but I assume that's better since Gold and silver never had a girl.
Well, if you go by the manga, then the girl for GSC WAS Crystal. And that person looks almost nothing like her. Look at LeafGreen and FireRed... I could swear that the girl for those looked VERY close to Blue/Green (She's Blue in Japan, Green in the US).
So does this mean she's the first character not to be named after a game or something? Unless, of course, she never shows up in the manga in the first place... that'd be such a waste, though...
Anywho, I wonder what theme I should have for my team? It's not gonna be a competitive one, this will be a game I wanna play to enjoy, rather than play to dominate... If y'all are gonna have teams, what'll it be based on?
hmm new pokemon game what a surprise... being a sucker for pokemon though I'll get gold version.
No doubt going to be a DS game anyway, might have some DSi enhancements but I predict nothing new.
V Tells us release date is Sept. 2009.
New? How is it new? When FF4 Advance came out, did they call it a new Final Fantasy game? How about FF4DS? No, they're ports/remakes. As is this. It's a modern remake of an older game. We still have yet to see what's gonna be in the new pokemon games, but so far we're still doing the 4th gen Pokemon thing.
Not saying this is a BAD thing, granted, but it's definitely not what most would consider a 'new' game.
Having a go at me for something like this role?
No, I'm just nitpicky when it comes to technicalities.
Yes, but FF4DS was simply a graphical update, GSDS (I'm still calling it that) is a complete overhall, it has modern gameplay and new(sort of) elements (i.e the following starter). Anyway, i look forward to apricorns again, they were awesome, and maybe the celebi event with the ilex forest (the one japanese owners could get with their mobile phones) will finally be realised outside of japan, bring on celebi!
I agree about the Celebi event...but the Apricorns? NO! You could only make one ball per day...and that sucked. If the Apricorns are back, I want the balls you make to be for sale in certain stores around Jouto, like in DPPt.
Actually, you could have more than one a day if you had enough apricorns.
My Nintendo Players Guide misleads me then D:
NOPE! It wasn't. They actually changed quite a bit in terms of battle mechanics. For example, the attack, defense, and resistance multipliers were gone (they used different damage formulas to make up for it), they introduced the augment system, certain spells and skills were tweaked, and heck, the Darkness command was totally different in function. Have you played both versions? They're the same story, but gameplay wise they work quite differently, as different as FFIII's original and FFIIIDS, though it didn't totally destroy the usefulness of certain classes like FFIIIDS did.
@Volt: He means planting multiple apricot trees, I believe.
No...if you stock up on 20 Black Apricorns and give them to Kurt, you would get 20 (Heavy?) Balls the next day. You could only give one kind of Apricorn, however.
Wow I forgot about the custom monster balls. Too bad there's no remake of Yellow or Crystal. My Crystal game is still alive.
Oh, is that how it works? Well, that's interesting to know.
I hope they use Gen 4 Monster Balls rather than the Gen 2 Monster Balls.
