I'm pretty sure most of us have heard the news about the battle structure changing and bonds and all that,what do you think they mean? Hopefully it's something cool, but they might just have been talking about the 3d aspect(sigh).

Makes sense with the X and Y being related to chromosomes and DNA and whatnot.

- Power of friendship "plot armor"-esque stuff, just not actual plot armor - Pokemon ReBurst is incorporated into canon

I hope it's a little more complex than 'dont let ur pokemon die, use it a lot, give it food it likes' and not an extension tied to the happiness system.

People need to take into account that
1. He said the announcement in Japanese and it's been translated to English. Translating languages is never exact, so I wouldn't focus too much on the wording itself as it's not actually exactly what he stated.
2. The goal of this announcement ( and every VG announcement) is to generate hype/buzz/etc. Sometimes this means making something that's small sound like an amazing new feature. This could very well be the case.
3. It's not guaranteed fact. Things change and sometimes the people who talk to the press get a little...excited and talk about things that aren't finished or set in stone. The perfect example is peter molyneux, who when hyping up Fable1/2 made several claims that ended up being completely false. I've seen lists of dozens of things that he claimed were in the games that weren't. I have a lot more faith in Gamefreak as they know what they are doing, but my point here is that nothing is certain.
My take on the "bonds" thing is they are going to make EV's a visible feature in the game instead of having them as a hidden thing that they rarely even acknowledge existing.
As far as the "battle structure" thing, honestly this could just be referring to the battles being 3D. --- Official husband of Skyla.
