These games will be the final piece in my reason to get a 3DS. There are other games I want to get when I get one, but I was waiting for a proper lineup of all the various typical games I get for Nintendo handhelds.
Pokemon is always a buy for me, I can always get into them and I usually get 150 or more hours of play time out of them. For my DS Lite I have Diamond, Pearl, Heart Gold, and White. Really, made up almost half my DS game collection.
So tedious animations a-la Stadium, and a Nintendogs mini game? I've always said we need an early type to ward off those dragons later on but why fairy???? Why is that super effective against dragons???
Still buying Day-one, just my thoughts. Running animation looks good.
I really think the edition of a new type is just plain stupid, especially "fairy". And of course they botched it with it being good against Dragon. It's really going to throw team balance off, cause Dragons already have the weakness to ice and themselves with dragon.
The way things are going, they are looking to make it so that most types have three or more weaknesses. With Dragon getting a third weakness, that brings it to ten types that are weak to three or more types.
The funny thing is looking up the weaknesses, I remembered why I don't use rock types, rock has five weaknesses: Grass, Water, Fight, Steel, Ground.
I didn't hear them say a weakness for fairy. I'm willing to bet Dark will be good against it, but you know what I hope is good against it, Normal. I've been wanting for Normal for a long time to get a type that it is actually super effective against.
Why is that super effective against dragons???
Because ponies. Ponies that are also fairies.
Sadly, I wouldn't put it passed them to make a new pony styled critter that is a fairy type. It would be absolutely stupid, like the type itself, but bet they do it.
I want them to fix that fucking Global trade system. I reaaaally don't want to see hundreds of requests for level 9 and under legends anymore. Set the levels for Legends above a certain marker like level 40 and up unless that legend can be obtained lower then that without hacks or very old events (Look at you HG/SS Arceus event!)
Seriously if that is fixed I will be so happy.
What I want is a versus mode type that bans the use of legendary Pokemon. It is one of the reasons I didn't play online much with that Stadium style game for the Wii. I eventually stopped all together, because nine out of ten match-ups, my opponents had a Dialga or Palkia in their team. It made the battles pretty much pointless to me, because I always play proper teams(I never use legendary Pokemon); those two legendaries are way too overpowered, because, they pretty much one shot everything because their special attacks hit like the force of a Comet hitting Earth, they are way up there in speed, and they have ungodly amounts of health. I was only ever able to beat one team with Dialga in it. It took me my first two team members and half the third to bring it down, then my final half healthed member was fast enough to one shot the rest of his team, because it had various moves they were weak against.
Really, at this point with all the different ones added in each generation, legendary is practically a class of Pokemon that has enough that besides their types, they almost are even in amount of some non-legendary types. At this point with all the power they tend to give legendaries, considering speed, health, and strength, they might as well make legendary and actual type that is super effective against all the types.
