After being underwhelmed with Black and White after the magnificence of HeartGold and SoulSilver, which were remakes of my favourite Pokémon games, this looks like the first game in several years that really seems to add something really substantial. The last time was online play back in Diamond/Pearl. I know there's the little tweaks in game mechanics and new battle modes that are introduced with each new game, but I'm talking about the really big things that are winning back former fans. With the 3D world and fully rendered battles it seems they are finally taking another step like that. For the first time in years I am truly excited about a completely new Pokémon game. I enjoyed them all greatly so far, but usually there was something missing or the games were related to older ones, such as 'third versions', remakes and, more recently, direct sequels.

What's funny is people are arguing over how a bull(Tauros) wouldn't evolve into a buffalo(Bouffalant) yet a little fish(Remoraid) evolves into an octopus(Octillery)? Even though the odd evolved forms aren't a widespread thing, they should be the least of our worries when it comes to a bull evolving into a buffalo; Hell, even I had the thought of Tauros evolving into Bouffalant before worrying about what they really were.

As far as Alomomola goes, that's just too big of a coincidence to have them let it slide.

I always questioned remoraid and octillry's evolution chain

Looking at Tauros and Bouffalant's stats; Bouffalant has higher attack and defenses but is a LOT slower. Would it be worth linking an evolution between these guys? Just wondering...

Well that could just be a compromise because none are the greatest at everything; it's not the first time that it'd have happened either. It's not even about whether it'd be worth it or not really, it's more about the big fuss involved with seeing how it could have been a possibility. Do I think it would be worth it though? Possibly. Will they do it? Probably not.

...and I still can't get over Alomomola. There's just no way in hell they can deny them two being linked, haha.

I dunno, thought of Unown when I first saw that thing.

I thought the same thing plus they are connected to ancient societies.

If the discussion about it is still going on, I don't want to see any new evolutions of any old Pokémon, to be honest. Those that suffer from bad stats or moves don't need to be great competitively- there's no way that could be pulled off with so many Pokémon, and you also need a balanced metagame with both strong and weak Pokémon. Eevee is already overdone, and I'd even almost say that the five we had in Generation II was excessive. Everyone else is fine design and evolution wise, in my opinion. I'd just rather see totally new Pokémon like in Gen V(provided that they don't look too similar to already existing ones like Bouffalant and Alomamola did).

I think that once Generation 6 comes people will see Generation 5 as I see it, as a weird "bridge" generation as I see it. Well, it gave us Iris, so that's something.

I think Unown goes in the Ditto, castform, rotom line, but who in gen V?

I think once we get Gen 6 people will perhaps appreciate Gen 5 a little more.

It was the last 2D sprite Pokemon generation, and also kind of like the last of an era.

Totally agree with you on that.

wouldn't gen 6 be the bridge generation. It's coming out only a year later after B/W 2 and seems to be adding the least new Pokemon of a generation ever.

Bioshock is 10 years old. Let's play through its horrific environment and see why its so beloved!

While I sort of agree. Gen 6 is adding new to the series beyond just new Pokemon. It's a major visual leap for the series, not to mention the Real Play feature seems interesting. That, and all the other 3DS capabilities implemented such as Street Pass and Spot Pass will really push the Pokemon series forward like never before.

We could be proven wrong, in the sense that, perhaps a new generation doesn't always have to be classified as dumping heaps of new Pokemon designs on us. Maybe a little more new Pokemon than what we know would be great, but the improvements present here in X and Y seem to be more than enough to justify there being new games.

Where are people getting this "least number of new Pokemon" stuff from. The only thing I've read on multiple sites is that there will be at LEAST 50. Not just 50. Not no more than 50. AT LEAST. It could very well give us the most yet.

That's the thing though. They wouldn't say "at least 50" if it was around 100 or so new Pokemon, which has been the minimum for each new generation. I don't think anyone believes there will be exactly 50 new Pokemon, but still that much less than the usual will be different.
