Awesome. Awesome to the max.

This is the kind of Pokemon anime I've been wanting since 2001.

It has been YEARS since I've looked this forward to a video game, if my new avatar was any indication.

I think we're finally seeing the Pokemon game franchise evolve into something solid story-wise, and this video sort of solidifies my theory that Nintendo is going deeper with the main franchise games.

Really, it started with Ruby/Sapphire/Emerald. Global issues (land VS sea). D/P/Pl followed up on this by throwing in philosopy with cyrus. B/W basically summoned forth the thought of pokemon rights. B/W2? Well, it's obvious that Team Plasma still exists, and I hope that we see a followup to the main storyline, much similar to G/S did to R/B/Y.

Plus, Elesa's makeover and the two new gym leaders (and the older Bianca/Cheren) makes me think that this game is going to be a pure sequel (not just a remake), and the large quantity of non-unova pokemon seems to show that the Unova region is evolving.

What really makes me wonder, however, is the promindence of the region that is bound in ice. Is Unova in trouble? (Although Platinum did the same thing. Is the world heading to an ice age?) Should I be consulting a real estate agent? :uhoh:

The news regarding Pokemon B/W 2 is quite astounding. <3

Spoiler alert!


Spoiler :
Iris is the new champion. Actually, this makes sense contexually. She was always one of the kindest/most helpful people in B/W, and her philosophy on pokemon remind me a lot of Lance/Cynthia. Her team is a tad odd, seeing as she has an odd mix with her old dragon types (Lapras? Aggron?), but should be a great challenge. Oh, and her costume is adorable. <3

Lucario, Arcanine and Eevee all obtainable very early game. Hot damn. My dream team is actually possible. <3

Shizui as the 8th gym leader is a surprise. Then again, I look forward to this "older brother" character type.

Achroma (my icon) seems to be quite an interesting character with his "new" team plasma. I love the evil characters. <3

Alder's grandson? I've heard rumors it's N or the protagonist from the first game. Don't seem to have solid confirmations yet.

World championship? HOT DAMN.

Also, glad to see Elesa get a re-made costume. I love the new gym for her.


Just my initial thoughts. I stomached the budget pain and ordered the import copy. A little over my budget for the month, but I hate to break with tradition and not import at least one of them. XD

EDIT:

Spoiler :

JEEEESUS dat outfit. XD

Although this does confirm the royalty aspect that the Elite Four/Champion fit in the Japanese editions.

It's Pink Pricess Sailor Moon IRIS. :3

How I wish I'd gone ahead and gotten the Advance entries when they'd come out, because trying to get them now is going to put a real hurt on the wallet (if I want to get either a New copy or one that at least has a working battery). Hopefully I can snag the non-B/W DS games before they disappear (and while I'm at it, actually get B/W and B/W2). It seems as though Diamond and Pearl have just crossed that boundary, so they're still in the $40-50 range, not like the $200+ that new copies of the Advance games go for.

I'll admit that I personally enjoy getting full new copies over used copies, but why not just find used copies via Amazon or used game stores? I have about 3 copies of Sapphire (2 used one bought new on launch day), and their internal battery works just fine.

Internal batteries have actually likely dried out in most gba games (I know it's run out in mine). You'd likely have to change the battery yourself if you really need a working battery copy.
That said, depending on what you want the games for, dried battery could be better. Right now I believe Emerald-like RNG of certain pokémon in RS is the only reason one might specifically want a dried battery, though (for instance, level 45 Kyogre/Groudon in RS can come in handy for trick room teams with a VGC 2010 ruleset).
If you instead just want to play them for the story, then dried battery shouldn't matter, as it only influences things like the in-game berry system and the mirage island number, which aren't really required to beat the game; you can very much save freely and all, and the savegame data will still be safe, unlike with RBY and GSC, if that was what was worrying you. If that's the case, I don't think you should need to specifically hunt down a working battery copy, thus you could save up some money by just grabbing a dried battery used one.

I had been checking at the used game stores around here, and they don't have sections for GBA games anymore. I was looking on Amazon (and eBay), and figured that if it really came down to it, I could settle for a used copy.

Ah, that's reassuring. If that's the only thing that the battery affects, then it should be possible to just override and force a specific condition with the Action Replay I have, negating the problem entirely.

I'd like to know too. I've thought about snagging it too, but haven't really seen any good (unbiased) reviews of it yet.
