    At least they’re making good use on the 3DS. It looks good and we seem to have a none Fire/Fighting type this time.

    ...not sure why this needs a new thread separate from the Pokémon thread that already exists.

    But anyway. I'm in two minds. While it seems interesting, I'm not sure I'm big on the whole 3D thing. Personally I'd have preferred them to stay 2D and offer more customization options and maybe other regions. But I will wait to judge fully. And the starters look cool.

    The whole thing is just gorgeous to look at! The desert area seen briefly in the trailer video looks especially awesome.

    What might the new legendaries represent/be 'gods' of? I can't think of anything that hasn't already been taken.

    If it's really based on France, it could be the gods of cheese and wine? :p

    Uh... Has there been a god of nature? I've honestly lost track of the Pokémon legendaries.

    A lot of the legendary trios have encompassed that (forests, mountains, weather, volcanoes), but, come to think of it, I don't think there's ever been one for nature in general. It's a bit vague, though.

    I was thinking maybe the cool deer guy could be a god of nature of some kind. Not sure what the other thing could be, though. Is there a god of the sky?

    The weather trio, Ho-Oh and Lugia to an extent, Rayquaza, and the Kami Trio all did that to an extent, particularly the last ones.

    Overall, I'm not sure what to make of the move to full 3D. I've said for previous generations that it's been a long time coming, but now it's here, I don't know.

    I guess I'll hold judgement until it's a bit closer to release, and we have a bit more content to look at.

    I really wish like, they announced it a week before release. Then we wouldn't have to WAIT SO LONG.

    p.s. Fennekin is overrated and Froakie is best frogmon.

    I really hope that they make the starters just one type. Non of the fire/fighting or grass/ground or water/ground. Just have them as fire, water and grass and then they would be perfect.

    I found a pic of what some-one thought their evolutions would look like..

    I don't mind the duel-typing of evolutions, as long as it's not always the same. The fire/fighting we've had in every Gen since 3 seriously got annoying. Water's had more variation, with ground and steel as secondary typing.

    Having a Fire/Psychic, Grass/Steel and a Water/Rock evolution for the starters would be pretty awesome imo.. it would give something different.

    I wonder what the gym leaders and elite 4 will use and what other additional thing will be put in the games.. (like contests and pokethalon)

    We could have Grass/Rock, Water/Dark and Fire/Steel for this Gen, but you never know what they’re planning.

    I'd rather have fire/psychic... something to get over the fire/fighting types of the last few gens.

    True having a Fire/Fighting type 3 times in a row is getting old.

    According to various internet sources, the deer/stag legendary is called Xerneas and the big flying thingy is Yveltal.

    So I guess that's where X and Y comes from. :p

    Maybe they're the gods of the respective chromosomes.

    That could be interesting. Kinda like a Ruby Sapphire where depending on the game changed who the bad guys where.
    I'd also expect them to possibly be gendered.

    Gen 6 Villains could be the one who can’t do maths.
