I think what bothers me the most about the art direction is that they made Brendan and May look younger than they did in the originals. The facial design is bothering, yes, because they look too wide-eyed and a bit derpy for lack of a better word. And May's outfit is overly frilly and looks like something an 8 year old would wear. With this in mind, IDK why people hate Brendan more than May, aside from the face Brendan looks more or less the same, but May looks like she regressed a good 5 years and looks too kiddy now.

I think she looks older personally but that's me! Too tall to be younger if she's only five at that hieght holy crap! (note pokemon trainers are appost to be 10 years old when they get their pokemon.. yet they all look 16 xD)

In addition to the awkward face I hate what they did with Brendan's... side burns? Are they even that anymore? It looks like he grew his bangs out very awkwardly, it's just ugly. They're literally just like that so people won't confuse his hat for his hair again. (Which I did until the ORAS artwork…) The key word is awkward for me, everything about the design seems off. Like he's constantly nervous.

I think it's just the art style that makes them taller, Calem and Serena looked pretty tall too, but in game they're actually a bit shorter than adult NPCs.

Don't see what's wrong with the redesigns to be honest...

Seems to be just a case of "its not the same, it sucks".

Also, those are not their original designs.

Same style, different colored outfits. They may as well be the original designs.

There was actually a big boost in graphic style between RS and Emerald. That's when they started moving away from their classic style (thin eyes, weak watercolor-like colors, stubby legs).

The original Brendan is practically bald.

The new designs are just so UGH to me. Just... ugh.... I can't wait to change how Brendan looks.

Compare this new Brendan's look to how the main characters in Unova looked.... The Unova trainers looked amazing.

I personally like the new designs. The clothes for both characters look like they could double as wet suits. Considering Hoenn is so water heavy, that makes sense to me.

I like to think that May's new ribbon is actually just her bandana rolled and tied into a ribbon.

looks at May's new design Isn't it pretty sad how we can't even tell if she's wearing a headband or a bandana tied into a ribbon?

I'm actually leaning more towards headband.

At least it's not a hat. I'm tired of hats in pokemon games.

How do you guys feel the music will fit into this game?

I was standing in anistar for x/y and I couldn't help but notice how the calm music fit in so well with the tone and artstyle of the game..

I just feel like the game's artstyle like x/y with trumpets in this day of age will actually feel a little dull.. it worked back then because it was a colorful game.. but with the new x/y looks and 3d,ish style I feel like the trumpets would be not as nostalgic.

X/Y let you take them off, BW weren't even full hats, and I personally would prefer hats.

With brandon's near appearence he'd actually look better with something more similar to ash's hat than his cap or whatever that thing is now..

No you couldn't take your hat off in X and Y. At least not for more than five seconds after you get a hair cut.

Only your rival had that privilege.

I found this interesting that serebii posted it..

"As expected, and is now tradition, after the viewing of the new movie, Diancie and the Cocoon of Destruction which is now open in theatres across Japan, confirmation was given in form of a trailer for the 18th movie, due for release this time next year. Not much is known about this movie, but the trailer featured Primal Groudon and Primal Kyogre. Details of the movie are completely unknown, but we'll provide details as and when they come"

I'm thinking mega [email protected] will be event only for the movie release like diancie was..
