It hurts to know that the new Pokemon won't have 2D sprites.

All the sprites from the Pokemon games are gold and they won't have any.

I don't mind at all, looks awesome with 3-D sprites.

I think you're mistaken because on the leaked CoroCoro picture the starters at least have 2D sprites as seen on the left of the page,

Be quiet and go play the old Pokemon games if you like 2D sprites so much. This is the future now! This is INNOVATION! 3D MODELS WOOOOOO

I agree. Don't get me wrong, I'm happy the series is moving forward. I'm not gonna be one of those guys whose like "We should have sprites forever!!!"

But ever since Gen 1 with Stadium or Snap or whatever, we've always had both 3D models AND Sprites for Pokemon, and it's a little sad to imagine we might lose one of those forever.

I'm really hoping the game will have sprites in some form. Like maybe a special mode of the Pokedex or PC will let us view them as sprites, or maybe the Party Menu Sprites will be like Gen 5 equivalent or something.

Worst case scenario, I'm pretty sure fans are already drawing sprites of all the characters and Pokemon, and they look alright. But it won't be the same.
