  1. I never understood the appeal of pokemon games. I always saw it more as kids game.

    1. Is for everyone (adults and Kids), trust me, this game is full as fuck of strategy and thinking, this is why is very popular.

      1. lol i agree ^^ the funny part is even with all the stradegy and thinking in the game, regular playing pokemon players are like
        “man this is so easy, my vaporeon just koed your flareon with a critical hit of +100 now i’mma leavel up!”

        none regular pokemon players
        “how the heck is water week to grass?” (heard that to many times XD)

    2. Play Pokemon! There’s so much variety with all the different Pokemon you can get! For example you can get a team of Pokemon that could make the journey hard for you, easy for you, or just in between! Plus just the feel of exploring around the whole region makes me so happy! :D

    3. The game’s looks are deceiving. The content and gameplay are what you should be focusing on, especially as a gamer.

  2. I like the way you literally copied and pasted the text from Serebii without even editing it to make more sense without the magazine scans or anything.

  3. The professor battles you? That’s… Dude that’s… FUCKING AWESOME!!!! And fucking finally a Psychic/Dark type! I’ve always wanted Psychic/Dark type! Fuck yeah!

      1. Oh, Mamma Jynx! If I wasn’t already “with” you. I’d SOOOO get with this new Professor guy! RRrrrrAAAArrrr! 💏

  4. Pokmon is illegal on the world

    make me some cake or i have a



  5. I’d like to know the differences between X and Y soon. I think they will reveal these facts around the release date, when all new Pokémon are revealed, too. Still don’t know which version I want to buy.

    1. I definitely want X, because Xerneas is the first Fairy legendary and he looks sooo awesome. But, Y has some of the cooler exclusive Pokemon like Skrelp and Shushup :( I guess I’ll just have to get both! 💋

  6. HoloCaster? I think there should have been a different name for that… Aside from that, the rest of this news just gets me more hyped for the release of X and Y!

  7. Team flare sounds more classy than the other evil teams, but they still won’t be taking money off me, I’ll be taking it off them when they lose to me!

  8. When I was a kid we didn’t want to know everything about a game before it came out we played it had fun and pulled out some link cables…what’s wrong with you kids nowadays

  9. So basically it’s more Fairy-type Pokemon, two new gym leaders (the one with the robot arms most likely a Steel-type trainer) and the name of the evil organization which will get their asses kicked by a newbie 10 year old trainer.
