Most parents limit their children's access to the internet - it's the same reason you don't see many topics discussing LazyTown or Barney The Friendly Dinosaur.

I was hoping they'd still use the iconic third-person overhead perspective. The graphics don't look impressive so hopefully they'll improve it.

Pokemon games are an exception. A lot of people played older versions as kids and continue to buy new versions as they're released. The games may be aimed at kids but even adults can enjoy them.

Man, the good games were Blue, Red, and Yellow. Then they came out with an ass-load of pokemon. The original 150 (151 with Togepi) was awesome. Then it became silly.

I think the game been in 3D ruins it, looks very tacky and doesn't feel like a Pokemon game at all from watching the video of it.

Pokemon is like Sonic and Worms, just stick to your roots which is 2D.

There have been a few 3d pokemon games (mostly for the 64). Such as pokemon Snap and the battle arena one.

When I clicked on this thread I assumed that X and Y were variables...now I am not so sure. I am still hoping those aren't the final names.

Graphics look pretty good

I think it was about time Nintendo went with 3D, as much as I love the 2D style.
