... Did you not see the promo for B2/W2? I don't know about you, but I don't think I could stand listening to, "Heads up, I'm about to unleash my rage!" every time I saw my rival. Not to mention that Pokemon is heavily text-based. With text-based games you have that problem where you read faster than the character's voices. That style works fine for console games like Metal Gear Solid. Little handhelds? Not so much.
