FUCK GEN V

Yeah, I said it. At first I was all depressed about the magic of Gen V being over already, because it was really the first Gen in which I was properly involved with the only Pokémon community I'd really known, and had a group of fellow fans to get hyped up about it with. But now that X & Y have been announced, I don't even care, I just want Gen VI right the Hell now. Opinions so far:
- The Starters: They're soooooo cute, especially Fennekin; I just want to huggle one to death! I still like Froakie the most however, I think, though Chespin's pretty cool too. At first I was all like "wtf does GF think it's trying to pull", but I came round within like 10 mins tops. 'Course, we haven't seen the evos yet, so this opinion is subject to change, but I get the feeling that their evos will be good all-round, especially Froakie & Fennekin.
On another note, I'm really glad they decided to try out the Dark/Psychic/Fighting triangle, even if it is only secondary. They're just all amazing, and I think everyone seems to at least agree that they're the best we've had in a while, even if they only like two out of three.
- The Legends: Brill. I like X-Deer's design the best, and I personally can't wait 'til Z-Snake & Pokémon W are revealed, which I'm sure they will be. I like how they seem to have taken an old, recurring theme that's been around since the franchise's inception (genetics) and given it a fresh spin, whilst bringing it to the forefront. It feels like the perfect homage to the history of the franchise, whilst at the same time paving the way for an even brighter future.
- The Graphics: My jaw literally dropped when I saw the trailer gameplay. It looked like the console version in a handheld. I've heard some people complain about the framerate and resolution, but I honestly didn't notice tbh, and I'm sure any minor quirks that do appear will be fixed either by release or by the time the sequel/third version comes out.
- Misc.: Something that did kind of bother me was the fact that the male protag. looked a lot like Nate, who looked quite similar to
Black"Hilbert" (I will never get used to that, even generations after the fact). I think it's time they gave the protagonists' appearances a bit of a shake-up. I mean, I know they gave the girl blonde hair, but that's not really a big deal. Tbh, I was hoping by now we'd have character customisation (at least for skin, hair & eye colour), but meh, something to keep in mind for later Gens I guess.
But yeah, apart from that minor minus point, I'm super stoked for Gen VI, and can't wait for it to be released (even if it means buying a 3DS T.T).
Also, for anyone who actually cares, regarding those old nuzblogs I used to do ...
