Oh pokemon, evolving game after game. Pokemon had gone into a stand still between Platinum and the Heartgold/Soulsilver games, as almost nothing had changed majorly to even bother mentioning them. This time around, you have many new pokemon, so we are now past 500. Pokemon no longer do there little intro, and then freeze like in previous games, as they constantly move in some way. There is now a device on the bottom screen outside of battles known as C-gear which allows Infared battles, trades, and other different features to occur. Let's mention the Pros. and Cons.
Major Pros. New pokemon to train and capture C-gear and pokedex skins available via wifi download C-gear features Contstant movement with pokemon New moves and abilities, along with modified ones with new added affects New, more challenging major opponents/rivals. More 3-D effects, whether it's just the surroundings, or in battle New Random matchup and Global trade features (friendcodes no longer required for everything) via wifi A new group that actually accomplishes, or tries to, an evil goal
Major Cons. Poketransfer - since older games can't have the new pokemon in them, a feature similar to GBA to DS is usable, but like before, pokemon can't go back to the older generation. 4 pokemon that have to evolve by trade 6 pokemon only available through events or trade (besides version exclusives) Some new pokemon aren't as appealing (looks strange/ugly) to others And possibly a few small others I forgot to mention
All in all, previous pokemon players will enjoy like the last games.
