I'm playing Pokémon X and I'm really struggling with a gym battle, said no one ever! Seriously I've five badges that were no work at all my Pokémon have made everything their bitch. Is someone else finding it a little easy, or am I just REALLY good?
My only disappointment so far is the battles having slowdowns :I
And... There is nothing wrong with 69 new Pokémon only. We have 700+ Pokémon already, stop asking for more please.

Today I worked out how to turn off the 3D on my 3DS XL. I didn't even know it was still on until I found that the slider can click down to turn it completely off.
I haven't had to do this for any other game. Resident Evil looks great and plays like a dream, so why doesn't Pokémon?
I was really disappointed when I went into my first battle and it was stuttering all over the place. Having the 3D off isn't really a big deal, but I just wonder why it was included in the first place if it looks this bad. After figuring out the 3D slider thing, my enjoyment for this game has gone way up.
I'm only a little way past the first gym, so I can't really comment on the game itself, aside from the fact that it's possible to make an almost 100% Fire type party in the very early game!

Well as some have already said, my biggest disappointment is how this generation has introduced the least amount of new Pokemon, 31 under the average 100 we usually get. I feel as if there's too much focus on older Pokemon this generation, especially because of Mega Evolutions when honestly, some Pokemon could've actually used a normal evolution. It feels like they were just pandering to the older fans, rather than those who are up to date and all.
A few other details I'm kinda disappointed about is once again the lack of a dark type gym and a dark type move that is over 100 BP. A couple other things I'm disappointed about is that there doesn't seem to be much to do post game other than the battle mansion. Also the lack of Shinx and Growlithe cause omg I wanted to play with them in Pokemon-Aime SOOOOOOO bad without having to trade. I'm also disappointed we don't have any new monkeys, or this ice wolf that was rumored before.
You know...I'm also kinda disappointed they don't show the trainers in the background like Colosseum and such did during the battle. I just find it so weird that the trainer is shown throwing out a Pokemon, but the opponent isn't.

I'm enjoying it so far, but 70 Pokemon is sad. Mainly because of the distribution. There's a handful of routes with mostly new Pokemon, but still running into way too many old ones. Making it hard to have a full team of new Pokemon early on. Probably won't have my full team until halfway through the game :|

I have almost nothing to complain about, not even the small number of new Pokémon (actually Gen V and VI sum like two average generations, in term of numbers).
But there's only one thing mocking me. Either I'm unlucky, or wild encounter rate is high as hell. Can't advance 3 steps!!
Me verás volar por la ciudad de la furia...
- Pokémon games are like boobs; designed for children, but more enjoyed by adults. (Someone on twitter)
The last game that had a mass of Kanto pokemon readily available was Fire Red and Leaf Green, gameboy games. Nintendo is just using 6 gen so players don't have to rely on GTS or 3x transfer to get rare Kanto pokemon. You also have to remember the younger audience of Pokemon, which didn't really experience Gen 1 like we did. This game is for them too.
As for the low # of 6 gen Pokemon, you guys do have the game right? Look at the modeling they did. It isn't sprite work. I can't find the post, but modeling is far more work and they did it with over 600 pokemon in-depth. It's a massive stepping stone for Game Freak.
Most legitimate complaint?
12.5% chance of getting a female Fennekin. I've spent the first 15 minutes of this game resetting my D.S, trying not to get a dude wearing a dress.
Edit: Got it on my 10th try. Y u do this Nintendo? It's like Azurill turning into a dude all over again.

I can't find a male Litleo to save my life. I want a big guy with a big mane!
My complaint: I want to take off the roller skates. I"ve always used the circle pad to move my character, but now I can't because I'm dashing everywhere.
We still can't skip the Pokemon catching tutorial, it's ridiculous.
Exp. All feels cheap, I turned it off because I don't want to make the game too easy. The old Exp. Share worked fine, it shouldn't have been removed.
I'm disappointed with the camera angles during battle. I thought there would have been a lot more movement and shots, but it's usually just one still position, except when they go to the split screens.
Don't get me wrong; I love the 3D.
Where do I start?
Yes the 3D thing is a nice step forward but everything else are steps back.
Mega Evos are unwanted and un-necessary, apparently some of them rival legends in terms of stats, which sort of discredits legends.
Not to mention they have taken away Challenge Mode, so those of us who want a challenge, now won't get one.
Apparently Action Replay doesn't work with these new games and the pool of new Pokemon is so small.
Flying type - well Im picking Fennekin (should be female only) so I don't really want Talonflame(terrible name) as then I'd have 2 Fire types on my team and Noivern isnt available until really late.
Water -type very limited pool of surfing Pokemon, not sure which to go for.
Having to pay to transfer Pokemon from Gen 5
Weird distributions of version exclusives.
I know there is a lot of fanfare at the moment and everyones excited but when things have calmed down a bit, I think Gen 6 will go down as the worse Generation so far, yes even Gen 3 will be preferable.
It's a shame after the high that was Gen 5 they then fell so low.
