as much as I'm probably going to want to play the game, I don't want to buy a 3ds, even though they have awesome games (like a new fire emblem coming out ) and I've pretty much slowed down my gaming to a minimum...... BUT, the frog thing is probably the most original out of the three and I bet he'll become awesome as an opposed to a grass "oshawatt" and well...... another fox thing....as for the legendries,.. well I'm not a fan of legendries for reasons no one really cares about.....but its always fun to watch the new Pokémon as they come out
I'm still well beyond turned off for playing Pokemon X and Y. Black and White sucked, so I just sold them online and I'm pretty sure X and Y won't add much else, so I've really never partaken in Pokemon since Diamond and Pearl, so yeah. And they're running out of pokemon ideas so I'm sorta running out of faith of the ideas they want to pull out of their asses and shove into the game.
I love reptiles, but Froakie will do for my amphibian needs.
Other than that,
Also, do not come with your anti anything after Gen 2 bullshit, because all I;ve ever heard as excuses from anyone who doesn't like Gen 3 & up is laughable crap based on nostalgia that can easily be contradicted.
Because Gen 3 is not a step backwards from what Gen 2 brought to the table, and totally doesn't have people whining about Black 2/White 2 and X/Y not being remakes of their game. Because the newer Pokemon fanboys can whine about how Gen 2's "KANTO RUINED JOHTO111!!!!" all on the basis of it not being as pretty to look at, but never mind the fact that Gen 3's towns didn't serve any better, the secret houses along with the contests it introduced are pointless, and Gen 4's Sinnoh is dull as shit as well. Because Gen 5's story wasn't clunky and overly dramatic. I'm saying this as someone who wouldn't put any of the Pokemon games on her favorite rpg list. Nostalgia fanboys are annoying but claiming that anyone who prefers the previous gens only due to nostalgia is the height of arrogance. I swear the newer Pokemon fanbrats (not talking about the sane newer fans) that love to ad hominem are more annoying than the "EVERTH1NG PAST 150 IS BULL$HITE!!!" genwunners.
I really like Fennekin's design. I'm not sure if I'll invest in a 3DS yet, only because the only reason I'd get one is to play Pokemon and I'm a bit overwhelmed by trying to "catch 'em all" (which I did on Diamond! ...still in progress on White, but I haven't played it in months). I also haven't gotten BW2, partly because a hinge on my old DS broke and I lost my DS Lite years ago. :\
I don't mind Chespin's design, but I think it will be interesting to see what its evolved forms look like, haha. At least they can make something sleek, speedy, and powerful-looking out of Fennekin, and something that hopefully doesn't look as godawful as Seismitoad did for Froakie.
As for which game and consequently legendary, I'll probably go for X simply because I tend to favor the blue colors, but I also tend to buy both games.
I just think the transferring part is overwhelming, really. I mean, I have Pokemon that are gonna be ten years old this year dating back to my Ruby version. What old farts! Not to mention my collection on White that's nearing-completion.
