Really am looking forward to this Pokémon game! Shame Pokémon White/Black did not have the same feel about it :(

every new release of pokemon is interesting, not because they are great games (dont get me wrong, they are), it just makes me think what names are coming next. Me and a few friends had a discussion and came to the conclusion that they put toddlers in a corner and poke them with a stick until the spurt out new weird names for pokemon :)

I'm actually quite glad I held off buying black & white 2 now. I'm surprised there hasn't been much talk of "too soon for it's release", but then again it's not like people can say the weren't any justifiable changes.

3D is a big step forward. I can already see that a sizeable amount of people who were still on the fence for 3DS have just been swayed.

They will most likely release Pokemon Z in a few years to fix it.

Hmm. 3D game, with 3D being one of the big changes, with names that represent a 2D field? Seems ironic.
