Title: Generation V confirmed
Post by: Evie (retired from head adminship) on January 29, 2010, 05:36:37 pm
According to Pokémon.co.jp some time in 2010 a new game will be released with 'whole new Pokémon', the article is named (when roughly translated into English with Google translator) as 'Pocket Monsters 』completely new series in development for release later this year 2010!' which may suggest that this new game will be part of a completely new generation.

The article also states (with a slight Engrish translation) "The latest in the world is developing more than 1,715 million (more than 580 million domestic) boasts the unit sales of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl 』from four full years as new, a new game and new Pokemon than ever In addition, you will be reborn in all innovative."

Many sites such as Bulbapedia believe that this may be the start of Generation V and speculation suggests that similarly to how when Generation IV Pokémon were shown in later Generation III episodes and movies the upcoming 13th Pokémon movie (Phantom Ruler Z) will feature at least two new Pokémon or at least two new forms (as shown as white ? marks in a black circle) when Japan sold plushes to correspond with the new movie.

Personally, I find this exciting as new evolutions could be made for underused Pokémon such as Delibird however I might not enjoy it so much if they make a lot of legendaries in order to outdo Arceus. My friend even thought of the name 'Ottid' as a big fat ditto evolution   ;D

The exact article is here http://www.pokemon.co.jp/info/game/g100129_02.html (http://www.pokemon.co.jp/info/game/g100129_02.html)

Edit: This topic has been made a sticky; since the confirmation of two new Dark Type Pokémon named Zorua and Zoroark I guess that it is safe to confirm that a fifth Generation of Pokémon is coming soon. http://forums.glitchcity.info/index.php/topic,5850.msg174154.html#msg174154 (http://forums.glitchcity.info/index.php/topic,5850.msg174154.html#msg174154)

Wow, this was very unexpected. I guess I'll have to watch the new movie then. Preferably before it's dubbed.

Wow, I half expected another spin-off series (or at least the release of the G/S remakes world-wide) before they would announce the fifth gen. Five bucks says it will be rushed out like Platinum was. Then they'll have a bunch of things to fix for the expansion game.

Bout' time generation 5 starts coming around the corner. It has been a while since gerneration 4 came out and I was beginning to wonder where Nintendo was going next. I like the idea of a new series, it would be cool if they decided added an action style to a Pokemon game. Of course, the "new pokemon" could STILL be just another new form but its definitely very interesting news. Especially since the arctile mentioned something unexpected. We will soon find out....

Some sources have said that two new Pokémon may be revealed as soon as February when Japan reveals those silhoutted Pokémon plushies based on the upcoming 13th movie. If those sources are true we may only have a few months to wait until the Japanese version of these games comes out! The article did say that this new game would be released in 2010 though so they might be released at the latest in December.

Sorry, I worded that wrongly what I meant though was a black circle, with a white ? mark in that circle. I've been suspicious about it as well, a total of 493 Pokémon seemed quite strange almost as if they were going to add seven or eight 'extra Pokémon' however the addition of Arceus made be quite doubtful as well.

That definitely resembles Lugia! I wonder if that could also mean that Nintendo are releasing some sort of Pokémon Battle Revolution 2 or a new Pokémon Colosseum like RPG for the wii to go with that new DS game? But of course only time will tell, for all we know this might be part of some sort of advanced cutscene on the new DS game to come.

Hmm, like the menu screen for SoulSilver?

(http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/e/e4/SoulSilver_title.png)

No, the picture Zowayix gave is far too complicated to be the Lugia in that picture. Although, this one (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1LCWuTKdxbo) (appears around 1:30) in the SoulSilver Lugia event could be it. Maybe. I doubt they would need 3D modelers to do Playstation-level polygons.

Who knows. Maybe they'll go back to all the nice features of the Stadium games. Like, actual Stadium Cups, instead of being forced to have a copy of the DS games. Plus, I miss the included organizer and extra storage boxes. That thing was KICK-ASS!

I would definitely enjoy that! Note that is possible to beat Stargazer Colosseum with rentals, and even some of the higher sets if you obtained a team of high base-stat Pokémon or Pokémon with ideal moves such as this particular endeavouring/reversal dodrio from set 8 of the rental trade battles. However, PBR never lets you actually choose those Pokémon.

It seems that Nintendo have already re-introduced the extra storage box idea by releasing Pokémon Box to correspond with Generation III games and later My Pokémon Ranch for the Wii; however with speculation of Generation V coming out I wouldn't be surprised if they re-introduced the old Pokémon stadium system.

I wouldn't disregard the possibility that maybe Nintendo are going to use another gem; Amethyst and Jade are good possibilities. However Nintendo have surprised us before, so I wouldn't doubt them making something like Pokémon Solar Version either, it puts a chill down my spine to think how futuristic those games would be.

I kind of semi-wish that they release a Pokemon game similar to a folklore RPG.

And futuristic looks? It;s Japan. They sell condoms in a vending machine in front of an elementary school.
Teleportation pads? Check. Holograms? Check. Internet access using an arcade machine? Check. What's next?

And I thought Z was a reference to Porygon Z.

I guess that it is now safe to confirm that a fifth generation of Pokémon is coming up soon so I am going to sticky this. In a preview of the upcoming issue of the CoroCoro magazine on February 15th two new Pokémon have been confirmed as Zorua and Zoroark - The Evil Fox Pokémon and the Monster Fox Pokémon respectively, they are both Dark Type Pokémon.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8RUGURe3n0 (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b8RUGURe3n0)

These are most likely the two Pokémon promoted as ? marks in Japanese Advertisements for plushes for Pokémon in the 13th Pokémon Movie - Phantom Ruler Z. Presumably Zoroark is the 'Phantom Ruler Z'.

It was revealed when it was a silhouette that Zoroark was Z.
In fact the Movie is called Phantom Champion/Phantom Ruler/Ruler of Illusions (Many sources say different things...) Zoroark.

Also, even if they are beta, almost all beta Pokemon became real (as shown on link). Chikorita, Girafarig, Marril, Quilfish, Hitmontop, Tyranitar come to mind. As for the turtle, it was unnamed, so I say it goes. The other two (the ones I said) I would like. A fire bear? A possible pre-evolution for Lapras? YES.

Well, some sources such as the Nintendo Power magazine claim that Shellos and Gastrodon were once planned for Ruby/Sapphire but I do not know why they were scrapped, possibly just due to technical limitations. Seeing as it is a magazine though, I wouldn't be surprised if this is a red herring.

Seeing as those two Pokémon were actually released in Diamond and Pearl we could possibly see more of the unreleased pokémon end up in the new generation, however I am not sure about Honōguma (the fire type bear) and others such as Kurusu (A seal like Pokémon) we might just see a prevolution of Seel but as for Honōguma it seems a little bit too much like Raichu. As for that unnamed turtle I think Nintendo wanted to scrap that for good, you cannot even see its legs.

If any of those prototype Pokémon appear in Generation V I would guess that they would just be majorilly redesigned. After all those Pokémon weren't included in Generation III, not even a Pokémon with a similar design to one of them.

I doubt Nintendo would release a new Pokemon RPG for the DS. The games usually follow a pattern. On the GBA for example: Ruby, Sapphire, Emerald then Red and Green remakes. The DS is on course to follow the same pattern. Diamond, Pearl, Platinum then Gold and Silver remakes. If anything this is going to be for the DS2 or maybe as a DSi exclusive.

It is true that a new Pokémon generation has so far followed the release of a new console:

Pokémon R/B/G: GameBoy
Pokémon G/S/C (prototype: Pocket monsters 2): Gameboy Colour
Pokémon R/S/E: (prototype: Pokémon Advance): Gameboy Advance (prototype:SGB)
Generation IV Pokémon games: Nintendo DS
Generation V Pokémon games: Nintendo DSi, (later a new console with a prototype name of DS2?)

Yes, the original Japanese article here http://www.pokemon.co.jp/info/game/g100129_02.html (http://www.pokemon.co.jp/info/game/g100129_02.html) did state that the console was going to be for the Nintendo DS.

Nintendo could 'release' this game for Nintendo DSi in the sense that Generation V will no longer feature the Pal Park to bring back Pokémon from the GameBoy Advance games (as the Nintendo DSi does not have a section to insert GBA games) however the only way Nintendo could make it exclusive to the Nintendo DSi as far as I know is by download. Nintendo could surprise us like that but since the original Japanese page did quote the game to just be for the Nintendo DS personally I don't think that they would do a thing like that. I certainly wouldn't disregard the possibility that Nintendo might make Pokémon downloads on the DSi though as to procede the older Mystery Gift mode.

This is big yet my feeling it's going to be a big letdown when it comes out in English...

If I DO get the game (Black will be my version if I do), I will probably go with the Fire Starter. I usually go with the Water, but I can't resist going with a fire pig that may turn into a badass flaming boar.
And he will be named:
"Mr. Pig".

BulbaNews just said that on Pokémon Sunday last Sunday, they revealed that to obtain Zoroark, you need to have all the Legendary Beasts (Not every legendary, I'm specifically talking about Raikou, Entei, and Suicune.) It doesn't stop there, however. They need to be SHINY and transferred from Generation IV games. Due to them being "transferred," I'm thinking they might implement something to transfer Pokémon from D/P/Pt/HG/SS, so we won't have the same problem we had when Ruby and Sapphire came out. Then again, there's not that much info.

Zoroark event info here. (http://bulbanews.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Pok%C3%A9mon_Sunday_reveals_Black_and_White,_movie_13_info)

They might reveal something this Sunday, as well.

As long as Pokemon keeps making lots of money (which it does), they will keep milking it until it's dry. It's not that time yet. (Nintendo actually DOES know when to stop.)
Expect Generation 6 in a few years.
And of course they're losing players, SCared_Fir3, because the players that you are referring to are growing up, and finding less time for videogames. At the same time, they are getting NEW players as well, so it evens out.
"Going too far" is what idiotic Gen.1-Gen.2 extremists say. No offense. And PLEASE change your avatar...it's very disturbing....

Yeah thats true that they're gaining new players. And then watch them get into RBY and GSC hahahha that would be so funny.

They aren't Legendary.
Zorua evolves into Zoroark.
EDIT: Speaking of Legendaries, the Mascot Legendaries for Black and White have been revealed!
However, it's like Yin-Yang, so Black has the white one, and White has the black one.
It seems that Light type is going to exist, just as I predicted.

EDIT (again): They've been confirmed to be both part Dragon type. Whether they will have a second type or not is uncertain. Geez, do we really NEED more Dragons, let alone Dragon LEGENDARIES?!? We just had Dragon version mascots!!!

Unless people have missed it, two new legendary Pokémon were revealed on the Pokémon Daisuke Club's website and later on Pokemon.com  (for use on the Black and White's front covers) named Reshiram and Zekrom.

Yeah, I said that in an earlier post.
EDIT: Although, a rumor is going around that Zekrom is also Electric type. I really hope that this rumor is false....

Zekrom Part Electric-Type? (http://pokebeach.com/2010/05/zekrom-part-electric-type)It might make sense, sadly. It would be cool, though, how they aren't jumping to extremes with the Pokémon.

Apparantly, of what Serebii says, it was something to do with the host of Pokémon Sunday posting in her blog that she wanted to obtain a Zekrom because of her love of Electric types. Shortly however, after a few minutes or so the post was deleted.
Title: Re: Generation V confirmed
Post by: Chaos Hiruko on June 01, 2010, 04:54:37 pm
That could mean one of two things:
1. She accidentally leaked the type and didn't realize it, so she edited it out quickly.
2. She made a mistake and Zekrom is not actually an Electric type, so she edited it out quickly.

I wonder which is the truth...

Honestly, PokéBeach convinced me she was right.
Title: Re: Generation V confirmed
Post by: Chaos Hiruko on June 01, 2010, 06:01:44 pm
Until I see an official source stating its type, like Pokemon.com, or CoroCoro, I remain skeptical.

*RANT WARNING*

...Ready?

I cannot even begin to tell you how completely turned off I am by this "Generation V". I just heard about Black and White a few days ago and (not that I'm trying to pass judgment or s**t on everything I see) I'm already sick to my stomach. Don't misunderstand me; I'm all for new Pokemon to catch, new lands to explore, new attacks to utilize, new legendaries (if they can even be called that, but that's another matter all together), etc. But when they release images of Pokemon this unoriginal and (for lack of a better word) stupid looking, I have to question the intelligence and creativity of the minds at Game Freak. Seriously you guys. Come on. Not only do the new Pokemon we've seen look like they were thought up by a lobotomized giraffe, but it's completely obvious that they are rehashes of old Pokemon. Do they really think that we are too stupid to notice? Like the child that takes parts of his old toys and glues them together to make new ones, Game Freak simply has no new ideas to draw from.

And none of this is fact, by the way. It's just my opinion... Which, depending on who you are, may or may not matter.
Title: Re: Generation V confirmed
Post by: Chaos Hiruko on June 06, 2010, 12:25:14 am
Explain to me how these Pokemon are rehashes of old ones. (Excluding Reshiram, as it looks like a fusion between Palkia, Suicune, Lugia, and Kunemon from Digimon.)
And these (so far) are FAR from unoriginal. We've never had a land snake, fire pig, OTTER (in general), demon foxes (Ninetails doesn't count as demonic), nor celestial beings representing good and evil.
If you want to look at unoriginality, look at Charizard. (Not badmouthing Char, but it's just a typical, everyday dragon with fire on it's tail.)

Here's what I see when I look at the new Pokemon...
(http://i47.tinypic.com/fmpd0m.png)
This just looks too much like Treeko to me... No land snakes you say? Ekans. I can defiantly see elements taken from both Treeko and Ekans in this one.
(http://i45.tinypic.com/npown6.png)
I can't help but think of Spoink when I look at this guy.
(http://pokebeach.com/content/games/black-white/prerelease/0510/mijumaru.png)
It looks like a Piplup and a Buizel got it on.
(http://www.videogamesblogger.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/02/zoroark-pokemon-of-fifth-generation-artwork.jpg)
Weavile + Sandshrew + Ninetails = "Zoroark"?

Mabye I'm over-analyzing things. It just seems to me that there's no effort been put into this go-round.
Title: Re: Generation V confirmed
Post by: Chaos Hiruko on June 06, 2010, 08:57:31 pm
Land snake as in snake with legs.

But I can see how Pokabu looks a bit like a tiny Grumpig....
For the others...I don't see the resemblance. Although Mijumaru has a similar body shape to Piplup, it doesn't look like Piplup to me when I put the two pictures side-to-side.

Maybe I didn't choose my words right when I said this new generation isn't original. I can see how the first generation of Pokemon weren't exactly original other than Pokemon like Mewtwo, because he looks like something no one has ever seen. He has balls for his freaking fingers!

Making Pokemon that resemble real-world animals is all good. Pokemon like Stunky are good additions because their species (in this case, skunks) hasn't been used before. But when you have three Pokemon based on the same animal and they have only slightly different variations between them, that's when I have an issue. I mean, Starly is just a Pidgey with a different color scheme. Farfetch'd isn't that great of an idea either (Does anyone really remember him?) and the only thing separating that guy from Pidgey is the fact that he fights with a freaking leek. And that just seems random. On the other hand however, Swablu and Skarmory are good examples of how you can take a Pokemon that's already been done (bird-like Pokemon) and creatively rework it. Even Chatot was a good idea, because even though there are many bird Pokemon, there was no parrot variation.

You see, the pinnacle of creativity and originality is when you can create something no one has ever seen or even thought of. (Mewtwo, Bronzor, Rotom, Ralts, Shuckle, Abra)

I'm just saying... I think they could do better with some of their designs.
Title: Re: Generation V confirmed
Post by: Chaos Hiruko on June 10, 2010, 05:25:28 pm
Here's a difference: Pidgey is supposed to be a pidgeon, whereas Starly is supposed to be a starling. Two different birds.
And EVERYONE remembers Farfetch'd. He was a wild duck with a leek! What's not to remember? He needs a badass evo....
Though I do see your point. Especially about Pokabu being a mini, firey Grumpig.

First of all can I say, I can't see your picture.

Secondly, well the idea of "orginal" has three definitions among Pokemon fans (that I've seen any ways):

1. It is difficult to tell what animal(s), plant(s), object(s) and/or myth(s) it is based off of.

2. It is not copying ideas or designs off of the older generationsor other battle monster series orginal creatures.

3. It has a concept and it is one that hasn't been used before.

I know they're supposed to be two different birds, but they look so similar, along with their evolutions. Their move sets are almost identical too. I never really saw the point in Starly.

And what's worse about this one is that it has the same body type as Starly!

As for the others:
SWEET! A chinchilla!!!! ;D
A fire ape? As if three flaming simians weren't enough...though it's eyes remind me of Rock Lee, as Gary said.
The zebra looks cool. And it's black with white stripes! I bet it's shiny looks like a typical zebra; white with black stripes...
The desert croc looks cool, but there is only one crocodile/aligator for me, and that's Feraligatr.
I don't like that pink thing. I just don't.
The gears remind me too much of Bronzor, and they look kind of stupid to me. AND it took away from Plusle and Minun of their unique abilities.

The fact that to get Zorua you need Celebi and to get Zoroark you need a shiny beast is starting to make me think that they are:
1. Legendary
2. NOT related through evolution
3. Event only Pokemon like Mew

And for the first time, the Professor is female? Cool.

Hopefully both Reshiram and Zekrom will be both available in each version of the game.

It's not an animal. It's based on one of those little red things with faces that creep people out. Starts with an "M", can't remember what it is...

*UPDATE*

Ok, it hit me today... I was talking to a friend (who is a member here, he he) and she pointed out the similarities of these new starters to older Pokemon.
Here's what I see when I look at the new Pokemon...
(http://i47.tinypic.com/fmpd0m.png)
Quilava + Treeko
(http://i45.tinypic.com/npown6.png)
Tochick + Spoink
(http://pokebeach.com/content/games/black-white/prerelease/0510/mijumaru.png)
Mr.Mime + Piplup

Anyway, I think I'm fine with the other new ones. Except the pigeon.

The pink thing is kinda lame too.

Not like GameFreak needs my permission.

It'd be sweet if they did though.

Hey, guys I'm actually active today lol! Here is my thoughts of each new Pokemon so far:

grass starter: why is it supposed to be a grass snake? it definitely seems to be more of a lizard with a long snout.

fire starter: not too sure about it, they stole Spoink's tail a little bit. The evolutions could wind up being really cool, or really weird. Hopefully cool cause otherwise it would ruin my friend's trend of liking every fire starter so far.

water starter: It's a Piplup. jr! Actually, a sea otter is not a bad idea, though there is a large physiology resemblence.

chinchilla: good idea, pretty cute, well designed. This is a neat Pokemon all around.

ahem* the.....pink thing....OF DOOM. That thing creeps me out, seriously WHAT is it? It would definitely eat my dreams! There seems to be an early trend of painting little pictures on the new Pokemon (flowers on this one and a shell on the otter).

Nintendo staff member: "wait, I got it! We'll call it Gear! Isn't that just original, we are so brilliant!" FAIL. Good thing that's the JP name, they better change it in America. It's pretty interesting, does look too much like Bronzor. The Pokemon are getting weirder...but that's ok! I'm still a diehard fan so I'll criticize at first, but then decide I'll like them all later.

Nooo! Another Normal/Flying bird to poop on us! Well, as long as It's evolutions compensate for the (very) repetitive type with cool abilities and attacks, I'll be fine with it.

fire thing: At first, I was like "say what?", but then I decided. He is crazy, and weirdly awesome! His weirdawesomeness somehow reminded me of how much I thought Loudred and Exploud were weird before I liked them later.

zebra: Yet another weird, but cool Pokemon. This time, giving me a similar impression that I had with with Girafarig back in the 2nd gen. Nintendo has a strange way of being brilliant idiots...

crocodile: Having wild, stripy colors is also a growing trend by Nintendo it seems. I can just tell, its evolution will be a dangerous sweeper due to raising attack after every KO. And Ground/Dark is an interesting combo.

Zorua & Zoruark: Muahahah, Zoruark is so evil looking in the movie trailer. I get the feeling that those two will be the "Riolu & Lucario" of the 5th generation, it terms of battling awesomeness. Other people have said that too.

Reshiram: Light type yay, buh-da-buh-buh- *eerk* oh wait, NOT a light type!? Gah, oh well at least it's a dragon/fire. A type that should have appeared a long time ago. This guy and it's counter part rock!

Zekrom: again NO dark type? what the*beep*? At least Nintendo is inventing more unique type combo's, but I didn't expect dragon/electric at all for him!

The 5th generation looks prosperous in the games, but I am worried about how the anime will do. According to Bulbapedia, they are planning to replace Brock in the next series. *sigh*, PLEASE keep going strong in America, don't go off the air after the next wave of controversy! It'll be ok if they exchange him for Misty or the old VA's.

I like these new Pokemon, save for Mamepeto and its evolutions. We already have *ahem*: Pidgey, Spearow, Hoothoot, Tailow, Starly, and all of their evolutions. Nevertheless, the others are quite original. The starters, the starters; they are both cute and awesome. This is the first year I haven't been disappointed by any of the starters - even the Grass type ones, which I generally don't like. Hihidaruma and Munna are a little odd, but I suppose we'll get used to them. Giaru (Gear) is yes, a lot like Bronzor, but is great for machine-themed teams. The best thing I can say about Chiramii is that it isn't an electric mouse (finally, I'm sick of them). Double thumbs-up for Shimama and Megaruko; they are both original and interesting, and I hope to train them. Finally, Reshiram and Zekrom: The Yin/Yang concept is very interesting. I have a feeling that this generation's theme will be Balance, similarly to Generation IV's Power theme. And finally, Brock leaving is loooong overdue. Do you know how repetitive his random crushes can get? I hope he's replaced with a more interesting character.

tl;dr very little unoriginality and lots of creativity, I don't care about Brock

Also, here's a map of the new region Isshu: http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/8/88/CoroCoro_June_4.jpg (http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/8/88/CoroCoro_June_4.jpg)

Post by: Bluelatios on June 13, 2010, 03:30:07 pm
Yeah, well Brock was one of the original characters. Despite his repetitiveness at times, he is a good friend to ash and a good cook. Underneath his retarded behaviors are character qualities that have enabled him to last all this time. They took away Misty, they had recasting, and the death of an original VA (Meowth's voice). If they take away Brock, then the series has lost its originality aside from the main hero. Nonetheless, I will still watch the Anime and enjoy it, but the empty hole that I have will grow wider, longing even more for the days of what it once was. But this is slightly off topic about new Pokemon, just needed to share my thoughts :).
Title: Re: Generation V confirmed

On-Topic: I wonder what evolutions these new ones have...
Title: Re: Generation V confirmed
Post by: MissingNoGuy55 on June 15, 2010, 06:56:33 pm
Not sure what evolutions they'll have - I hope they look cooler than the Gen IV final stages (not saying they're bad.)

Me and my friend love to joke about a stupid thing that Nintendo would reveal since there isn't much info still. I scared him by saying that Zoroark or Zorua would be a pre-evolution of Arceus, and he gasped and said "[MAH NAME HERE], don't even SAY that!" He also sent me a message saying if there was a Deoxys evolution, and I replied "That knows Explosion and Milk Drink."

I always call Mijumaru in real-life a "pussy-ass otter" for humor purposes and for the fact that I don't like it.
Title: Re: Generation V confirmed

Post by: Schala on June 15, 2010, 07:42:27 pm
I'm wondering if they'll introduce any new type combinations in Black and White... I'd like to see some creative ones, like Electric/Grass (negates weakness to ground but gives you a weakness to ice and fire), Steel/Poison (pretty cool type combo, but 4x weak to ground), and pure Flying (please make a Pokémon like this. =/)

Anyone willing to bet that this generation's übers (forgot their names) will be Dragon/Psychic and Dragon/Dark (both maybe with Levitate?) I'm willing to bet 100 Pokémoney that they'll be those types. =/

Personally, I like the way the designs are going so far.  My favorite of the Pokemon so far is Chiramii, it's just awesome.  My favorite of the starters is Mijumaru.

For the other Pokemon, Giaru isn't bad, IMO, it's gonna be interesting if they make their abilities affect their evolution(Minus and Plus).  Munna looks like a Drwozee evo that got really fat and was painted pink with flowers.  Tsutaaja and Pokabu are okay, but not as good as Mijumaru IMO.  Mamepato is just another regional bird.  I don't like Hihidaruma.  Shimama is really cool, and the electric typing is interesting.  I'm not sure what to think of Meguroko yet.  And I'm indifferent on Zoroa/Zoroaku.(Yes, I call them by their Japanese names.)

So yeah...
Title: Re: Generation V confirmed
Post by: Schala on June 16, 2010, 02:28:29 pm
Any word of new abilities/moves/natures/etc. yet? And will it be a one-way trade from generation IV to V? =/

I think they shouldn't add new natures if they want to maintain bidirectional compatibility with both generations; abilities and moves are no problem as a Pokémon can be reverted to a Gen 4 ability, and there's also a move deleter in Gen 5, so Gen 5 moves won't be a problem. New natures, otoh... that could cause problems with bidirectional transport, unless they can somehow change the nature to one that's compatible with gen 4 (that won't work if they add HP+/HP- natures, though). =P

Also, wonder if the move relearner will use anything different for currency in the 5th generation... or even if it'll be free in gen 5, like the move deleter.

Yes, thats possible. Back in 2009, people suspected that perhaps these names were registered to intensify legal action against people selling the actual counterfeit games (e.g. Black for the GameBoy), but I guess this theory is being reconsidered now, after the confirmation of an actual Pokémon Black and White. Its not only Pokémon trademarks that Nintendo registered that year, but also software and hardware, one of which has actually been released at a later date.

For example:
1) WiiGoldenHandle (2008) - Later a limited edition golden Wii Wheel handle
(Club Nintendo Golden Wheel gift).

Also:
1) DS Houi Sensor Card - Possible tentative name for software allowing directional/GPS capabilities on the DS, later announced for the 3DS?
2) PiCOPiCT - May have been the working title for the DSi's Flipnote Studio.

Why would it? If you need to be specific, you can say "Kanto Route 1" or "Isshu Route 1". There are 4 Safari Zones, 3 Victory Roads, 3 Cycling Roads, 3 Battle Frontiers... having two "Route 1" won't necessarily make it any better.

You pretty much hit the nail on the head. It's like Hoenn's Route 101, or Sinnoh's Route 201, except taken to a higher degree.

On a slightly unrelated note, what does everyone think of the new Pokemon? I am ambivalent about most of them, but Kibago looks interesting, as a Dragon type with tusks. I just hope it doesn't evolve into another Ground/Dragon type.

QFT. I'm not referring to anybody on here, but I'm tired of seeing stuff like "Generation IV isn't Pokémon" and "These are Digimon." It really hasn't gone far from the originals past the advances one would expect.
As for the Routes thing, I'm fine with a few traditional repeats, such as Victory Road, but to give so many places as multiple Routes repeats of names just doesn't seem right to me. It's like giving Badges the same names to me.

He's not #494 Tsusaja is or w/e that grass starter's name is.  Victini's (inter)national dex number is still unknown.

(16 day bump, crap)

Okay, so if Victini stays at #000, the MissingNo glitch is gonna get a huge hunk'a s**t piled on it.

Anyone noticed the new Pokemon? I personally like Emonga.

Generation V is going to be pretty cool, weird, and bizarre in terms of new Pokemon. It certainly is gonna be a wild ride, and I'm ready for it! Man, I just have not done enough Pokemon training in 4th gen, I don't know why....triple battles are making Pokemon more complex though, I'm not sure if its the best move. It's interesting though, and I like the usual new attacks + abilities exclusive to dream world Pokemon.

>16-day bump

Also, if Bikutini remains #000 in the International Dex, MissingNo. could always move to #65535.
