3DS made for Pokemon?

#1omniryuPosted 7/9/2011 8:20:15 AM
I know the Director of Animal Crossing and Mario Kart (Konno) was in charge of the 3DS development. But why do I feel The hardware was made for Pokemon?

Tag Mode/Street Pass, 3D, AR, Spot Pass, Miis, and IR has nothing to do with Pokemon yet it seems these functions are made for it.

The way how B/W battle scene look was meant to be in 3D for depth. Trade pokemon/Items while going out or use spot pass while you're home. Miis, like Mario Kart Wii, can be use as a profile icon for online communication instead of a random pokemon trainer being your avatar in matches.

and What the hell we have infra red for?

Pokemon Black and White carts actually use IR, too.

Streetpass was probably inspired by Pokewalkers.

yea, but the thing is it has built-in wifi. I don't see the point in having it.

Perhaps it's less of a strain on battery? I don't really know why it has it, either.

Hopefully they actually make a 3D pokemon game that doesn't involve gameplay from 1996.

Black and White are vastly different from Red and Blue. If you want more changes, it sounds like you want it to stop being Pokemon.

Pokemon don't need to change. it needs to come out less often.

You ever seen the episode for Foster home for imaginary friends when they was selling Foster special cookies? and business died because of the cookies were less special because it doesn't come out once year any more? that's what could happen. over saturation.

one generation of Pokemon per a generation of console seems perfect.

Pokemon Black/White came out four years after Pokemon Diamond/Pearl. It was also another four years between Diamond/Pearl and Ruby/Sapphire.

Super Pokemon Scramble.

Happy? It's in 3D and doesn't involve gameplay from "1996". If you will complain for both this and the main Pokemon games, then i don't know what else do you want. Maybe Pokemon Call of Duty 4 C00l Hardk0res?
