Player movement looks to still be grid-based

Just an observation from the trailer, it looks like player movement is still tied to 4 directions. It's like in Black/White, Black2/White2 where the world looks 3D and some parts give the appearance of 3D movement(most curved paths), but you're still limited to 4 directions of movement.

I was hoping they would switch to actual 3D movement with the switch to completely 3D graphics, too bad.

I doubt it. The only reason it was "grid-based" in the past is because there was no analog stick before. Since these games are specifically for the 3DS, then they will use the analog nub instead.

I think that the odd-ish movement might be because of it not being complete yet...we'll see in later videos.

The world also is completely 3D, while keeping grid based movement.

Serebii is most likely basing that on the same piece of footage. Would definitely be a disappointment if it's true, but I can live with it.
