i kinda want to relive that feeling when i ran into a pokemon i never seen before. so i am going to play blindly. only looking up info on features not what new pokemon there are.

yeah i only had that feeling during gen4...in all the other gens, i knew every pokemon before (except for the catching routes so it was kinda surprising to meet a chimecho on mt pyre)

I look at the Pokemon officially revealed, but I don't look at leaks. I'm not looking at the story, either.

I went in blind for the last few games and didn't enjoy it as much. When I was younger and played Red & Blue I was always watching the anime and reading everything I could find. This time I'm going to suck up every little bit of knowledge I can find on it.

I always find that you make lots of mistakes on your first playthrough anyway. I'm going to run through it once, then start again for a more 'perfect' game file.

I'm the opposite actually.

As someone who primarily chooses their Pokemon based on aesthetics, there's no way in hell i'm gonna train up a 'Mon not knowing if it's final evolution is godly or a straight up turd.

We're getting to that point where they've revealed so many Pokemon that I'm starting to consider staying away from Pokemon news until the game is released.

Maybe after next CoroCoro. I can handle a few more.

I'll probably say that next month, too.

I am.
I just want the starter evos to be released. Once that happens, I'm outta here until the game actually comes out.

I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

Same here, I base my in game team off of who I think looks the best. I do have some OCD stuff with it too, I can't have more than one of the same type, I can't have too many of the same color... that stuff bothers me for reasons I'm not quite sure of
