Since it's release, I have been playing the game non stop, finishing the story in under 24 hours of gameplay. Before it was released, I was determined that this would, at the very least, be the second greatest generation of the beloved series (I enjoy Gen II the most because of the large post-game play). However, I would like to retract that and say that Pokemon X (and Y) are the greatest Pokemon games to date, surpassing many of my expectations. First, the graphics are some of the best that I've seen on the 3DS system; taking the traditional franchise into 3D went very well, taking the current number of 718 Pokemon (yeah, only 70 new Pokemon to catch) into this realm, and creating a wide world. There is a lot more to this game than ANY previous installment, traditional or spinoff. First, there's the many ways to train your Pokemon, as X and Y make Pokemon training much easier, such as the new Exp. Share effect that works on all party Pokemon (like Exp. All in Gen I) and Super Training (a new feature that helps build up the Effort Values of Pokemon). With these methods, it's quite easy for young and old fans to enter into the game. Second, there's the new Fairy-type which adds a new twist to the battle. There have been many Pokemon reclassified as Fairy, so there's the challenge of changing the mindset of those familiar with the classic system. Third, Pokemon Amie is a fun, new feature that allows players to bond with their Pokemon (and has a secret as well) by playing minigames. Fourth, and perhaps the most exciting revolution, is the Mega Evolutions. These transformations add another level with battling and bring this game to a whole new level, featuring older Pokemon with a brand new look. Of course, there is also the Trainer Customization, Boutiques, and much more that make this a more exciting, fulfilling game. Now, the biggest problem with this game is that they still haven't fixed the GTS. That aside, Pokemon X and Y are the very best in the franchise.
This is a game that has a formula that is old, but reliable.
But it still seems some what of a jip that we have to buy two versions of the same game to get them all.. I don't see why they don't just show us two completely different worlds? Would that really be so hard game freak? ?
This is what I liked about this game:
1. deeper world with more immersion than a normal pokemon world.
2. New EV super training system to more reliably train our pokemon!
3. We get some options to pick and choose what we look like! These could be expanded!
This is what I think this game could get to improve to bring out the true potential of the Pokemon franchise..
1. this game can be improved by giving gamers the ability to merge or gene splice our pokemon!
2. a pokemon adoption clinic or a pokemon pet shop to sell used pokemon for in game cash!
3. A more extensive character builder to let us the gamers be our own selves!
4. I propose some new types of pokemon!
Poltergeist type(possessed objects seriously we already have garbador, trubish, volt orb, and bennet)- strong verses normal, and psychic type, immune to poison, and resistant to ghost moves.
Fallen type- Strong versus all types except holy too which it is weak versus.. an entirely new type that is either undead or cursed. This type is taken from other pre-existing lines of pokemon, and since they are cursed they are a special breed that can't be caught by normal means...
Holy type- pokemon that learn moves that are good against ghost, dark, psychic, poltergeist, and fallen type.
but they would be weak versus normal, fire and steel..
I just thought it could help give some new ideas because this generation didn't even bother with adding another 150 new like they did in other generations, which means they might very well be running out of ideas!!! They only added like about 90 or so new pokemon... Seriously, they might have to switch up their game or they could lose their edge..
