    Default Could Gen VI bring older fans back into the series?

    Since Pokemon is going full 3D now do you think this major change will be enough to bring older fans who think Pokemon has gone dry and genwunners back to the series?

    I think 3D might broaden interest in older fans. I know I got more excited about Pokemon than I have in a long time due to this and Ive been with the franchise for about 14 years. Id say if it has a lot of cool features from the 3DS and a plotline of the BW quality older fans will probably enjoy the games a lot, but then, any Pokemon game can be enjoyed by older fans, I think its up the the person, Ive been satisfied with the games up until now, but Gen 6 could take them to a new level.

    I think it could. The dynamic battles, the full 3D, and it appears that gen 1 Pokemon are avalible in the wild during the game (pre E4)
    So why not.

    It's possible, but I don't think it will be a significant demographic. I think most people who gave up Pokemon that long ago aren't really paying much attention to the new Pokemon games.
    That's nice.

    They were certainly trying to bring back the older fans when they did that video last week.

    I definitely agree, I think the apparent aesthetic change from semi-3D to complete 3D will broaden interest in the game immensely. The Pokemon designs are excellent enough thus far to at least garner some approval from more open-minded people, in addition to the return of Pokemon form proir generations like The Togekiss said.

    It's possible, but considering how many seem to have a bias against the newer Pokemon, I don't think there would be a huge amount.

    Not only that, but it will probably draw in newer fans as well. I know that with the new Gen coming out, the kids in my family have suddenly discovered interest in the franchise.

    Force Genwunners to accept anything outside of the first 151?

    Shinies are just a palette swap. If its not bred well, don't use it.

    genwunners are too stubborn. they'd probably complain about the 3DS being too expensive as well.

    I honestly think remakes are more likely to do that than a new generation would... I remember when HG/SS came out, many of my friends who weren't avid players of the games were psyched out about those games because of nostalgia. I don't see those same friends talking about how awesome B/W are. Of course, that's just my experience, but I don't think many of the older fans will really be all that interested. To them, Pokemon isn't as "cool" anymore or whatever.

    Redesging the Portagonists and ill become even more excited. Being Pokeservative, i feel that gen 6 will bring some older fans abck to the table. the 3d graphics alone were enough to get me excited and the 3d gameplay. the battle graphics were very neat which will attact more people such as my self. Not too much for the more Nostalgic fans than me but i feel this will bring some older fans back

    I bet it will bring some. People who already have or want a 3DS might try it.

    What will help is more hype. Gen V brought me back into the franchise because of its promise of a fresh restart and better story, but the extra hype didn't hurt!

    I take offense to that because I'm a genwunner, but I'm definitely going to pay the $200 for a 3DS and the $40 for the game even though it can pay my car and phone bill. I have friends that are going to do the same this coming October.
