So Pokémon X and Y have been out for almost two months and since my blog just started, I thought this would be a perfect first post for it. They were announced in January 2013 and I followed these games like a hawk! And you can bet that I got this game the day it came out! So what do I think of the newest entries in the series of Pokémon?
First off the graphics. Graphics DO NOT make an entire game, but X and Y are the first Pokémon games in 3D, and the graphics are insanely good! I can say without a doubt that these games are the most beautiful 3DS games out right now. The battle animations are amazing as well! There was always a move that I've seen since Gen 1, and seeing it in 3D gives me a nostalgia bomb! And older Pokémon make an amazing transition into 3D! I get that they were trying to make the game cell-shaded, kind of like the Wind Waker, and they pulled it off!
Next is gameplay. Game Freak did not hold anything back when making this game! They made sure that Pokémon would be as fun as it could be, and they did it! Battles feel faster, the game up to the first gyms aren't as slow as in previous games, and the story is actually pretty good! I thought that since Game Freak went all out for the story in Black and White, they would be lazy for the story in Black And White, but no! They were able to make an amazing story I'll never forget! No spoilers but Lysandre is a boss!!! Oh, and i almost forgot....MEGA EVOLUTION!!!!! Game Freak was taking a big risk, but Mega evolution fits perfectly into the series. Making your already cool and strong Pokémon even more cool and strong is an amazing concept. My only gripe with the mechanic is that only one of your Pokémon can mega evolve per battle, but it makes sense, because they got to keep it fair. But not only Mega Pokémon, with every new generation, we got new Pokémon! Oh my gosh, these Pokémon are pretty cool! They are not the coolest Pokémon, but we have some great competitive Pokémon like Greninja, Aegislash, Noivern, Goodra, and many others. Sure we have some stupid pointless Pokémon like Dedenne, but that comes with any Pokémon game. A problem I have with the game is that there are only 69 new Pokémon released, with only 3 legendary Pokémon. Really? I have no idea why they didn't add more Pokémon. However, there are 450 Pokémon to catch in both games, so at least there is a huge regional dex.
Overall, this game was a masterpiece. There are a TON of Pokémon in this game, and with the amazingly beautiful graphics, i haven't been able to put down this game. I give this game a 10/10!!!!! GO PLAY THIS GAME!!!!!!!
