Final Countdown

#1Fortuneman_DarkPosted 8/14/2013 12:58:10 AM
it's August. and in 59 days we can expect the awesomeness that is Pokemon X and Y. a lot has been revealed over the months. i pre ordered these 2 games at my local game store in January. tried to have little spoiled to me but that failed. the new pokemon made me spark with impatience some more. so in anticipation to October the 12th

1) What is the Feature that stood out the most to you?
2) Who is going to be your starter?
3) What kind of pokemon do you hope to see in the full roster?

to answer these questions the first here are my answers

1) The herd battles. battling 5 pokemon at once. not only can we see multiple pokemon (like Miltank in a Tauros herd). but this will make training a lot more fun

2 My starter will either be Fennekin or Chespin. throughout the years i always picked the grass starter. but Fennekin stole my heart

3 i kinda wanna see a Gryphon pokemon. i have always been fascinated by Unicorns and Gryphons. and since Rapidash fulfills the Unicorn role. i would love to see a Gryphon grace the battlefield of pokemon

So you guys. let me know what your answers are. and let us hope that these last 59 days will be telling more of these 2 games. and eventually a full roster so we can start a team building topic as well.

It's still some time before it reaches 59 days remaining in the West. We already have a topic for this (http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/696959-pokemon-x/66887336); although, if that topic gets posts as frequently as it is now, it won't last until release so, this can be a back-up. I plan to share a link to this thread in that one later. Moderators may not like the idea of more than one of these but, there is a set-up for game related discussion of things like upcoming features in the OP so, this should be deemed as on-topic and relevant.
I like the title. It's like it references my last countdown topic and the song http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9jK-NcRmVcw. Track worthy
Please just wait until the day/date changes/rolls over in the West to post the days remaining and be sure not to post ITT too frequently in a day so this topic stays at a steady pace and doesn't fill up before release but, update daily so it doesn't become archived (any poster w/ a relevant post).

1) What is the Feature that stood out the most to you?

Probably the PSS in the way we can communicate w/ other players (Spotpass and Streetpass) w/ different avatars (thanks to customization, which could also be something that stands out to me) and what we can do over Wi-Fi such as Wondertrade and being able to type in the name of a Pokémon that we don't have listed as seen in our Pokédexes in the search for trading.

Probably Fennekin

3) What kind of pokemon do you hope to see in the full roster?

Ones from Norse mythology like mentioned in my topic (http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/696959-pokemon-x/66897800) + others (http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/696959-pokemon-x/66835275 and http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/696959-pokemon-x/66945506), a common (non-legendary) dolphin/Dauphin to reference the royal symbol on the French suit of arms, and I'm hoping for some like that Minotaur, Electric/Dark Cheetah or Leopard, manticore, griffin, and Centaur mentioned in the leak.

Btw, the hoard of Tauros had a Miltank b/c Miltanks are the female equivalent to Tauros and vice versa.

1) What is the Feature that stood out the most to you?

Not sure, many of them do. Need to think on this one.

2) Who is going to be your starter?

Froakie, I suspect.

3) What kind of pokemon do you hope to see in the full roster?

Water/Fairy Nix Legendary. Could have formes based on the swedish and danish/norwegian nix. The Norwegian nix is a water monster with a skeletal appearance and seaweed as hair that pulls people under. The Swedish one is one of the most powerful mythological being in the swedish lore, and one that other creatures of lore are very scared of.

He tempts people into the water with his music, where he drowns or eat them. His music stops waterfalls and make the trees dance. It's power drives people insane. By screaming at the water in a specific place, he would enchant that spot to drown people.

He is also a shapeshifter(Learn Transform?).



Oh, and hopefully a Rock/Fairy Troll, based on John Bauer's version of them: http://vuxnabarn.nu/wp-content/uploads/2010/12/bauer_ur_bland_tomtar_och_troll_14.jpg

Posting in the backup topic: 58 days remaining for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y's global release as of this morning.
It look like Spain (Gamestop) is getting Pokémon X and Pokémon Y themed T-shirts and Netherlands (Toys XL) is getting N 3DS cases as pre-order bonuses w/ Pokémon X and Pokémon Y.
North America's are still posters including a timeline poster if you get both and some download events. <__<
Carry on! I'll keep updating this topic for the time being at a steady rate so, it doesn't fill up too fast or become archived before zero hour.
