Opinion: This long-time Pokemon player LOVES gen 6 so far

#1CenedarprimePosted 4/10/2013 11:10:21 AM
I have been playing Pokemon since Red and Blue on our beloved gray brick, and while its a surprise to nobody that this is happening, there seems to be a lot of negativity going around about various elements of the new Pokemon and gameplay we've seen. Like I said, nothing new, but still makes one a little weary.

From what I've seen so far, I'm really digging everything about gen 6. So I'll just give a quick 2 cents on what I see to be the biggest topics of debate on this board.

1) The Starters: These are always a tough one to talk about since alot of players get really attached to their starter each generation. Some players (like me) are loyal to a particular type, some switch around all the time, some just don't like starter Pokemon. I feel like this is the strongest looking group of starters overall since gen 3. I like certain starters from gens 4 and 5 (especially Piplup, Oshawott and Chimchar), but I feel like these take more chances in starter design. Heck, depending on how evolutions turn out, I could even start with Chespin, and I almost never use Grass type starters! They are that solid.

2) Sylveon: While not my favorite Pokemon design, it's far from bad and I do think it would be cool if it ends up being a Normal-type level up evolution for Eevee. I'm hoping it gets a counterpart evolution this gen (akin to Espeon/Umbreon and Glaceon/Leafeon).

3) The Main Characters: The male trainer has to grow on me a bit yet but I don't despise it and the female looks quite nice. The looks are simple enough (especially in comparison to BW2) that it gives me hope for some customization options.

4) Newtwo/Mewthree: Probably my favorite reveal so far. Wasn't sure about the purple fingers and toes at first, but it gives off kind of an "advanced evolution" feel that I always felt Mewtwo aspired to. Despite this, I think the DBZ jokes everybody is making are hi-larious.

So yeah, that's where I stand.

The fact that it's fully 3D makes me love it no matter what. I also love Sylvein and Newtwo, I don't want to make a concise opinion on the starters till I see the final evolutions, but I like them so far.

I really am excited for this gen. Newtwo looks terrible for me though, the fingers and toes look terrible and I HATE the way the thighs connect with the body. It's body is also kind of pear liked and makes it look childlike.

Been playing since the start of the franchise as well and I am getting more and more pumped about gen 6 with each passing day. I am certainly not a fan of Newtwo in any way, but one or two or even a dozen terrible Pokemon won't drive me away.
