Somebody must've known somebody was going to bring this up.

Anyway, this is just for you guys to talk about the new Pokemon game that is coming out at the end of this year, and give any updates that come out about it.

The first two new Pokemon were announced yesterday: http://serebii.net/generation5/
I personally like Zorua better than it's evolved form, Zoroark. Zoroark just looks like another Lucario with Dragonball Z like hair, and different colors.
Steam is fixed!

You just lost the game.

I personally am looking forward to this, I do competitive wi-fi play often so i'm warmly welcoming 5th gen unless they add alot of broken pokémon (Scizor, Bliss), Hopefully should add new strats and what not to it.

When it starts sucking....which.....*looks into crystal Pokeball* Oh! Looks like never.

Games come out a few days after my birthday, which continues the proud tradition of my birthday being awesome. Having such releases as Smash Bros. Brawl....and Resident Evil 5.....and now Final Fantasy XIII (even though we already know it's terrible), followed shortly by Pokemon HG/SS. I'll be getting Silver no doubt, as it's the color I had originally.

It started sucking when they released Gen III.

Tell that to the sales.

Uh huh, yeah.


Asshattery aside, I do agree that was the weakest part of the series though. Which probably wouldn't have been the case if it hadn't directly followed Gold/Silver.

I'm a huge pokemon fan.
But I will agree that generation III was the absolute weakest link, sales wise or not.

As for a 5th gen, I don't know how they can get even more legendary Pokemon if there already is a god, time, and space pokemon.

New Pokemon doesn't look too bad though...could be worse.

I wish they wouldn't focus so much on new pokemon and more on the gameplay. Generation 2 was by far the best, because after you beat the elite four, you could still do shit, there were still bosses to be fought. This has been remedied a little in generation four, with the legendaries that are only available after beating the game, but I would really like to see more stuff like generation 2. Actual gameplay past the elite four. Not just running around to catch pokemanz. Such is why I'm so psyched for the remakes of the second gen.

Yeah, I like Zoroark, but it DOES seem like it will become the new Lucario, namely since he'll be the star of his own movie. I would prefer that he not reach Lucario status. I will always like Lucario more, and I'm sure people will think the same way, but you never really know.

the sales.

Sales != Quality. I don't think I can emphasise that enough.

Sure, a quality game will imply (usually, not always the case with unknown or indie games sometimes) high sales, but high sales does not imply quality.

Take two videos on Youtube for example.
A video could have 17 million views, and be terrible with an average of a 1-star rating.
Then you'll see an excellent video, average 5-star rating with only 3,000 views.

Is the video with 17 million views always better? Not necessarily.

Indeed Phaze, and that's why I will always say that Generation III was the worst of them all.
I mean, not just the gameplay, but they just introduced so many useless pokemon....I mean, even Bibarel was useful in D/P/Pt!
Look up Spinda. Worst pokemon ever.


There are a few things I'm praying for though.
1) There has to be something to fix up Stealth Rock. Ruined competitive matches, you can barely use anything weak to rock.
2) Better evolutions for stats. Some pokemon are awesome, but their stats just suck while their movepool is wicked.
3) Along with what Hat said, there really needs to be more right after the E4. And not just catching, but actual more challenges to do. Thats why Gold/Silver was my favorite generation, there was so much more to do.

1) I do argee with Stealth Rocks, I used Articuno as a Support poké for a while (Heal Bell, Roost, Ice Beam, Toxic) but It sucked because every time i switched it into do what it's made for, It got dominated by Stealth Rocks, Same with using Moltres with Overheat, To get it's top power back it needs to switch in and out, Thus getting dominated by Stealth Rocks again :/.
(I still prefer Toxic Spikes over Stealth Rocks)

2) Awesome movepool but horrid stats, First thing which comes to mind is Dunsparce, Awesome for Paraflinch (Body Slam + Heatbutt + Serene Grace pretty much will cause chaos for all non-ghost types, and even then it can use Bite to cover that weakness)but alas it has pretty bad stat distribution :angry:

3) I completely argee.
