Anybody else watch the "Newtwo" reveal video and think "nice attack animations"?

they're good by pokemon standards, but they would do well to step it up a bit

I'd also like to see different backgrounds. So far we've only seen the forest.

It would be beyond lame if GF cheesed the 3D battles and left much to be desired, only to say "Well you'll get what you want in Pokemon Z, coming out in Summer 2015!"

Physical attacks should have Newtwo running up and actually, physically hitting them. Like Psycho cut.

I agree, but not with every physical attack.

For example, Psycho Cut doesn't actually make contact. The user forms a blade of psychic energy and slashes the opponent with it. The only thing that makes contact is the ethereal blade, everything is done with the Pokemon's mind.

Same with Earthquake. The attacking Pokemon doesn't actually touch the opponent.
....because shutup.

Focus Blast really impressed me, it'll be worth having it hit only part of the time if THATS what I get to see!

Funny, I think that the effects lots it charm in the 3D. If it were done on the 3DS, I guess it would surpass the 2D animation in the GBA, but the DD lost a bit of its impact to me...

The colors and something more makes the GBA animations stand out more to me...

He only has one animation for special attacks, which was disappointing. I'd say they need work, but are still the best Pokemon has ever had. At the very least I would like to see unique animations for physical, special, and signature attacks, as well as good recoil. Also, attacks coming from where they should- for example, fire not sort of spewing from a Pokemon's chest, but their hand or mouth or wherever it should. I'm curious to see what Bite and Tackle look like, too.
