    The announcement of Triple Battles has made me seriously question just how innovative Black and White really are. I sorely hope that single battles will feel different in at least one fundamental way (not new Pokémon, moves or abilities). Mind you, Double Battles didn't come at the expense of introducing abilities.

    You're article was lovely and wonderful because apparently I can't give criticism that I was hoping you'd use to make the column more interesting in the future.

    I don't see the need to be aggressive. Let's remember that no one is getting paid for submitting opinion pieces; attacking their opinion is one thing, but if you're just annoyed that someone deemed their input more insightful than everyone else's, write your own piece and prove them wrong.

    You're absolutely right, you've gotten my thoughts pinned right down. That's exactly what I felt.

    I haven't been told that for quite some time, but feel free to continue being needlessly dismissive.

    I had problems with specific things said in the article, I quoted it. I merely decided to quote the rest of the article to be thorough and so the author knows I read the whole thing.
    I see one valid point about Double Battles not being very prominent in Ruby and Sapphire, but the rest is just complaining about the writer presenting fan consensus as if it were an original opinion - that is not real criticism. I don't disagree with you, but you could have made your point in a far less pretentious way.

    Everyone and their mother criticizes everyone else regardless of whether they can do it themselves or not. People go around complaining about how all music sucks nowadays without having picked up an instrument. 90% of this forum spout out how uninspired Pokemon is while not having a single original thought in their heads either.
    Is that supposed to be real rationalization?

    Apparently I can't even get one line of what I thought in.

    We get it. How much grief are you going to give the author over this?

    Easy boys.

    I really can't wait how this triple battle thing will work out.
    It could possibly make or break the franchise.

    Thanks.

    I see it doing neither.

    "oh man i've been into pokemon FOREVER (but it's somewhat likely i skipped RSE) and i have an opinion on something recent!"

    Yeah, I'm sick of it too. :/ Like I've said umpteen times, the opinion columns have potential, but it feels like all the same junk to me (with a few exceptions).

    Then don't post about it making it sound like you have...?

    The one line after I deleted everything else I said? But fine, I guess I can't have that.

    I don't see it having that extreme of an impact on the series. If triple battles turn out to be crap, they'll just drop them from the next game. And unless ~EVERY BATTLE~ in B&W is a triple battle, I doubt that it would turn too many people away from the games (if the triple battles suck).

    So you're saying even though they are implanting a new game function, that the franchise will stay the same?

    Don't you think if the function turns out to be a success, it will attract more fans, or even bring back veterans?

    But, if it turns out to be a ridiculous function, they quite possibly could lose fans.

    I don't think the franchise will stay the same after this function is released.

    Thanks.

    Yeah, you're right about that.
    We don't know if every battle is a triple battle.
    Guess we'll just have to see.

    It more or less stayed the same with double battles. Adding one more character will not change anything.

    Yeah, that's true as well.
    I'm just concerned about the duration of the battle, and if all the battles are triple battles.
    I'm sure there should be an option or something like that.

    Thanks.
