Shh. I'm allowed to have my guilty pleasures okay? As are all of you.
To get us through the doldrums of the postseason which is lacking a serious amount of Orange, I decided it would be cool to discuss the newest, hippest craze that's been around for 15 years: the newest iteration of Pokemon is coming out October 12th for the 3ds.
Mainly, this is just to see how many other hidden nerds are out there. But it would be fun to have a discussion. Who's going to get it? Have you been playing for a while? Played Red and Blue, and then fell out of the series? Does this generation look like it could revive your interest?
How do you like the new features such as Mega Evolution, as well as the new Pokemon revealed so far? Do you have an idea of the team you want to use? Any OLD pokemon memories you care to share?
WARNING: People might discuss leaks in this fanpost, as some stores in Canada and Italy broke the street date of the game early and pictures are floating around the internet. If you wish to avoid spoilers, avoid this thread.
Personally, I'm in love with the new generation and graphical design, as well as all the new features implemented. I can't wait to start playing it. Just wanted to discuss with any interested McCovens!
For some information if you're unfamiliar with the new game, here's IGN's video review here. It does not contain anything that hasn't been revealed by Nintendo already :)
