    What are you most looking forward to in XY?

    I think most people will opt for the new Pokemon (I know it's the only thing I really care about right now), but there's quite a list:


    • new Pokemon
    • new type combinations
    • new moves/abilities
    • characters such as player characters/rivals/gym leaders/evil team
    • the plot
    • the region and its locations
    • new items/pokedex/gadget
    • new gameplay additions (such as seasons and medals in Gen V)
    • new battle mechanics (like Gen V brought us rotation battles/wonder launcher/etc and Gen IV had the physical/special split)
    • online 3DS features and connectivity (this also includes stuff online like the GBU and Dream World)
    • the new updated 3D graphics and models
    • the possibility of future DLC (so stuff like hidden Pokemon)
    • new music/soundtrack
    • new gyms, elite four and battle facitilies (think Battle Frontier, World Tournament, Black Skyscraper, White Treehollow etc)
    • more version exclusive differences


    There's quite a lot of stuff, really. If you think I've missed anything let me know and I'll add it to the poll.

    There are quite a lot of things Im looking forward to:
    -New Pokemon: I always like seeing the new Pokemon and concepts for them that Game Freak creates
    -The plot: Im hoping the story retains the BW quality, I dunno if it will, but I hope for that
    -New game mechanics
    -new type combinations
    - The possiblity of new types: It might happen and it's something that hasn't happened in quite a long time so it might be interesting
    -Potential DLC: This could be interesting. They could hide stuff from us like exclusive Pokemon, even sidequests and additional areas to explore, I think that would be neat
    -Graphics: I like what has been shown so far, cant wait to see the whole game
    -Online features: Maybe the Dream World will be back or even something new

    Hmm, things I'm mostly looking forward to? Well, let's make a little list from the top of my head:

    - New legendaries
    - Graphics
    - Battle sceneries, see how Pokemon moves while in battle, battle animations, item effect animations etc
    - Region design
    - Possibility of new type(s)
    - Possibility of DLC
    - Hopefully finding new Pokemon to add to my absolute top non-legendary favorites. I didn't find any non-legendary Pokemon that really stood out for me in Gen V.

    Claims: Dialga | Multitype | Judgment | Adamant Orb | Draco Plate

    The new Pokémon of course, but what I'm most excited about at the moment is actually the new battle graphics and animation. What we've seen so far looks awesome so I can't wait to see the final product in action when I get to play through it myself.

    In addition to the new Pokemon, I'm really excited about seeing the old Pokemon rendered in the cel-shade style 3D graphics. Likewise, I'm curious about what all the move animations look like in the new game too.

    I'm also waiting with bated breath for any information on the region itself, and the kinds of environments we'll be able to explore.

    The two things I am most looking forward to are the new Pokemon, of course, and also the new graphics and 3D models. I am very happy and excited to see the Pokemon franchise take another leap, this time into 3D. I cannot wait to explore this new 3D land, with new Pokemon, new trainers, new villains, new locations, and most important of all, new journeys.

    Actually, I'm a bit more excited for new battle mechanics (bonding mechanic?) than for new pokémon. A bit more. But other than those, I'm also interested in the plot (how they'll make use of the genetics theme), the graphics (how they'll change the look of battles to maximize the 3D graphics), the region itself (the geography and culture of the region), and the characters and how they fit into the plot (especially the rival/s. I'm interested in seeing what characterization they have for the rival/s this time).

    Needless to say, I'm interested in pretty much everything about the new generation, but these what I'm most excited about.

    I'm looking forward to seeing the new Pokemon. The start of a generation is really interesting in that regards since I try out a lot of new Pokemon and see what works for my team. It should be especially interesting with these games due to the worldwide release, so there won't be a lot, if any, information on stats and what attacks they learn available online before I get them. I'm hoping that the plot will be good like the plot for B/W was and I'm definitely looking forward to all of the new characters. The rivals in the last generation were great and Team Plasma is my favorite evil team, so I'm hoping that the new characters that are introduced in X/Y will be interesting and enjoyable to see as I progress through the games.

    The new pokemon. I always find that to be the most exciting thing to start with. What type combinations the starter Evo's will be, if any. Im also curious to see what Evo's of old pokemon they come up with, since there are a few I'd like to see. Also interested in what new type combinations they come up with, and what type's the Pseudo legendary will be this time around. Once the Games get closer to release I'll start getting more interested in the gym leaders and Elite four, what types they'll specialise in. And of course the Villain plot.

    Not only am I excited for the new music in the soundtrack, I also can't wait to hear how they reorchestrate familiar songs that appear in every game, such as the pokemon center theme, evolution, the pokemart, and most specifically, the main theme itself. We sorta got a bit of what it could be, can't wait for the full thing!

    If they release Miiverse integration with 3DS before this comes out, it would be just perfect for me.
    Oh?
