I think I would have helped if the Trainers' were at least a bit more tan (they do live in a tropical region) and even May's hair could be darker, like her original design. I do however like Steven's design.

Digimon is WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY too cheesy than Pokemon. And to say, if "Ancient Devolution" is combining both Groudon and Kyogre together which it's going to be very weird. Like with water combining with ground.

Which would be Mud? Though I don't think anything points to them combining anyway.

PS. Don't knock Digimon. It was it's own thing, sure it went downhill but I feel like Mega Evolutions is Pokémon running out of ideas too.

@3DSfan — Considering how many water types there are going to be, if someone found them equal and wasn't sure which to choose I would advise Treecko. You should look at the rest of the grass and water-types in Hoenn, it might help your decision :3
Here's a link to the Hoenn 'dex on Bulbapedia if you want it~

Also, was the male character's name changed to Brandon? Because I keep seeing it everywhere lol

@Retro — I just want to hear the music ;_____; It seems that everything is going to be very similar to X and Y so I'm not sure if the overworld will provide anything interesting to me other than a lot of hype.

Also just realized that the sprites in battle (or, at least Blaziken's) don't seem to be updated. So we can assume there are no new sprites, I guess...

I was hoping the new trainers looks like this.

Brandon is the English name for the boy. It has been since the original games.
And I know what you mean! More than anything I just want to hear those glorious trumpets!! ;___; I really hope we don't get some gameplay with stupid stock music. I want that battle theme, some town themes, something.

Oh. For some reason I really thought it was Brendan XD

That's what's been in my head as of late. I'll probably post more music for convenience every now and again when it gets into me :3

So who else thinks OR AS is going to be inferior to the originals? I'm saying if gen 4 and on didn't exist which verisons would you probably prefer. (of course we didn't get the game yet so predicting what's to come.. )

I love orre.. all the models were spot on in their era in graphics and design (except magneton..) Only thing I didn't like was switchins when someone faints.. DURING the turn... I want an orre remake on the wii u and not just a backwards compatibility copy for download.

and for those who don't know as they never played them all the models in battle revolution from gen 3 down were exact rips right out of coloseum, XD, and stadium.

@Stomatopod17 Does anything ever live up to the original? (/half joking) I don't know though, I want it to be good and I hope they only improve and build on what they did with X/Y but I hope that doesn't just mean throwing in more Megas (they still feel gimmicky and tacky to me). Don't want to rant on about them but my biggest problem is that I feel they're just something Pokémon doesn't need and shouldn't have to resort to for the sake of "keeping the series fresh" or w/e.

Having said that if they change the geography of Hoenn I will be disappointed for sure, the only exception being tweaking the eastern half to make surfing more manageable (imo all they have to do is make the expanse of water smaller and therefore move the islands in a bit). They also shouldn't have bothered to change the trainer designs but oh well, at least they didn't replace them entirely (which I would hate to consider a better alternative).

Whew that's a lot to consider. Didn't mean to go overboard lol

I agree completely. Especially to casual Pokémon players (i.e., for instance, my brother) it just seems like GameFreak is trying too hard to bring huge, new game-changing characteristics to the table when everyone was fine with how the franchise was growing already... Everyone (casual and competitive communities alike) enjoys new places, storyline, and Pokémon to explore in general with new games, and the latter enjoyed the new items, strategies, etc. that every new installment brought. I don't think megas were needed and make the series look desperate more than anything else... That said. No one can argue that we all still love Pokémon <333

Although I like mega evolutions as it adds a whole new change to the game competitively, it mainly jsut depends on what megas they make.. they should've nerfed lucario.. gengar was strong enough without one.. now it got stronger, faster, AND an ability to completely force everything into perish song.. and only YOU can switch out to escape it.

Mega kangaskhan.. EVERYBODY HATES YOU FOR GIVING US THAT GAMEFREAK! It's like the most abused thing ever.. with priority attacks.. instantly at +1.. and capable of breaking subs and sashes, and still killing you is near impossible to counter.. and being immune to ghost type moves and only having a fighting type weakness is rediculous.

Basicly.. everything is fine with mega evolutions so long as nothing broken is added.. which they did already :/

Everytime I look at the female and male trainer designs... I wince. Seriously, how the heck do we go from Unova's awesome design of nearly every character and get to these ugly images from Omega and Alpha? They look so dang bad. Like people can't wait to change the male and female appearance as soon as they get the chance.

Hire the artists who drew N, Cheren, Ghetsis, the Unova main trainers, Cynthia, and Pokemon Platinum. Hire them again cuz they knew how to create awesome designs of characters!!!

@KiwiPanda His name is Brendan.

In other news, I hope the water routes stay expansive; that's one thing I love about Hoenn and it gives it a much better feel of adventure. How limited surfing became after gen 3 is one of the things that was bothersome, imo. It's one of the things I miss about it and look forward; the expansive water routes should stay and Hoenn should be left alone there at least. About my only gripe with them is the lack of variety of Pokémon found in them so I hope something is done to improve that, if even a little.

Brendan (thanks @Chriis lol) looks pretty much the same, and May... I admit, looks arguably worse. I don't understand how people can complain about Brendan, though. I can't believe I'm saying this, but I actually like his new design more, now... it's starting to grow on me <333
@Blast — You can't blame them too much for maintaining a design that was starring in the game being remade... D:

I quite like the new Brendan & the new May, if May wasn't in such a weird pose she'd be getting a much better reception. The main thing they have done is age them both a little & update the art style (so they're not a dumpy).

So far all the changes make sense, adding in X&Y features such as mega evolutions, the main thing that concerns me it that Hoenn retains it's uniqeness. When Gen3 came out you could tell Hoenn apart from Kanto & Johto easily by it's style. If Hoenn is just a slightly remapped X&Y I won't be happy.

As for Groudon & Kyogre's Primal Formes, I'm interested... I really loved Groudon up until he got nerfed in Gen4, if they find some way of making him useful again I'd be appreciative.

The designs are obviously more based on the original R/S ones (the poses are even the same) with some E details added in and adapted to better fit the eternal summer and water abundance of Hoenn, I like them.

My only complaint, for the lack of a better word, is May's bandana being transformed into a... Rinbbon-dana?

Hopefully the classic bandana can be bought.

I am not quite sure what to think of the prime forms of Kyogre and Groudon. Does it work in the same manner as Mega Evolution but with devolution instead? Anyway, we have Mega forms for the other two starting Pokémon, which I am happy about. My thoughts:

Mega Swampert
Water/Ground
Swampert has long been among my favourite Pokémon. I really cannot wait to have it rain death and destruction on Hoenn once again, especially since it can now become Mega Swampert. This new form has sort of a frog-like quality to it. Those big arms hint at either an increased physical attack stat or perhaps better defensive capapbilities. I am happy they decided to keep the Water/Ground combo, because it really is very useful.

Mega Sceptile
Grass/Dragon
Sceptile was always a good Pokémon, but was hard to use in your playthrough because it didn't learn many good moves besides Leaf Blade. Especially early on in the game it was a pain to use. With proper TM's and move tutors in Emerald, it turned out to be useful companion on Hoenn's vast oceans where Water-type trainers were abundant. The new Mega Evolution further builts up from that, it seems. Look at its tail. It almost looks like a tree. I bet that hints at increased offenses. The extra Dragon typing allows for Mega Sceptile to be less vulnerable to Fire as well. (Although Ice will be even more dangerous.)

Mega Diancie
Rock/Fairy
It has become somewhat of a tradition to distribute special event Pokémon in the current game and then give them a new form in an upcoming game. It seems Diancie is the subject of this tradition in these new Hoenn versions. Look at that huge crystal dress.

Prehistoric Groudon
Ground
This guy looks very similar to its standard form. The lava parts are a cool touch, though. I bet that will look awesome in 3D. Will it mean better offenses? Especially Special Attack would be something that I imagine benefits from this.

Prehistoric Kyogre
Water
Kyogre has a slightly more fish-like quality to it. He seems longer and more streamlined, hinting at a potentially increased speed stat.
