Yeah, I tried to nickname my Oddish "Walkweed" but it wouldn't let me. So I just named him Raffi instead.

Haha, I found a possible reference to One Hundred and One Dalmatians. In Lumiose City, at the café adjacent to the Furfrou Friseur (try saying that five times fast), there's a customer who says, "You know, when I leave home every morning, I kiss every one of my 101 Furfrou good-bye."

Also, while we're at it, the controls in Lumiose City are broken. >_>

Use the Circle Pad to navigate long distances in Luminose City.

Always stop before you wish to turn using the directional pad. It automatically stops every 90 degrees to give yourself bearings.

There's even a Slenderman reference in this game.

In the Head It minigame in Amie, what the heck are you supposed to do to knock the final large yarn ball? I haven't gotten the timing even once.

Edit: Forgot to quote a post from Cat he posted about the poke bank thing.

*facepalm* Why didn't I realize this earlier? Why is Pikachu so special? His cry was replaced with "Pika Pika," Pokemon Origins... it's not just a Red/Blue remake, it's totally gonna be Yellow: Special Pikachu Edition.

Just a speculation, but it really did take me a day to realize the cry was replaced.

I think the encounter rates in caves may have been lowered. I'm just not running into many wild Pokémon.

Thank the heavenly lord, this means I don't have to waste all my hard stolen cash on Super Repels anymore~

Something strange happened. I walked into the Pokémon Center (well, skated~) and I talked to Nurse Joy. But instead of her healing normally, the camera zoomed in on her face (like when you encounter a wild Pokémon) for the whole healing scene. Anyone know why?

I don't know if this is true, but I think the EXP share doesn't halve the EXP you gain from battle and distributes it to all your Pokémon- I think it distributes whatever you gained without halving everything.

...and here I was wondering how people have such high levels. ;-;

I've had the same thing happen occasionally. The camera will sometimes change the angle from which you're viewing. It could zoom in, zoom out, or even angle from the left and right. I'm not sure why, though. Maybe to make the Pokémon Center experience less redundant?

Your Pokémon tend to do a lot of odd things after you use Amie on them a bit. Sometimes they will feel uneasy or excited, sometimes they'll shake, and sometimes they'll jump around and have hearts appear.

They'll also get rid of their status effects, get extra Exp, etc.

For some reason, I find this aspect of Amie incredibly cute.

Apparently they went back and redid almost everyone's cries, and also did extra cries for different situations. No more pitch-shifting!

The battle graphics simply amaze me... but it's weird how they only allow 3D during that portion and cutscenes. No wonder the 2DS was released today, too.
The PICA in the 3DS is not fast enough to keep up with the graphics. Even in 1v1 battles, the frame rate will nosedive if the 3D is anything other than "off". It makes sense for them to disable them for anything bigger than 1v1 because you'd be looking at a slideshow.

It's kind of funny, though, when you consider that Gates to Infinity had no performance issues whatsoever. Perhaps poor optimization and/or styling overhead is in play here.

At least it's not a Diamond/Pearl situation here: poorly programmed code that makes everything slow. Thankfully, the code side looks to be at least competent as it's still snappy enough.

Just pretend it's a normal yarn ball. As soon as it starts to connect with your Pokémon's head, tap.

Everyone else got replaced too, but they are revamped instead of outright voiced.

It feels the same-ish to me.

I'm more annoyed at the unusually high amount of battles I'm getting in general, though. I'm way overlevelled before the second gym.

Obscenely good timing my friend~! I only managed to get it once so far. :T
On an unrelated note, I just maxed out my Lucario's happiness the other day in pokemon Amie~ The little interactions you get with them in battle after spending time with them is a really cute touch. <3

I hope they change the fourth gym's puzzle in the third version so it's not another stupid quiz based gym. Seriously that's the laziest excuse for a gym puzzle.

I personally hope Head It gets patched. The in-game scoring stops at 999, then you get the combo bonus, which shows that it can still go over that.

I've heard of some more serious bugs, though, like getting stuck in light poles while skating around. Those are the ones that really need to get patched.

Masuda actually said no patches after release, although he better take it back soon.

Hopefully non-metagame patches get fixed.

Having your pokemon journey come to an end because you skated directly into a street light doesn't sound too fun.

Guys, did you hear about the glitch if you save next to a car? Don't try it. It'll freeze your game causing you to restart.

Since no one happened to answer this question, I'd better do so. It does evolve at Level 39, but only during the daytime.

While on the subject of empty areas, there's an empty area in Reflection Cave that has a circle on the ground. Does that have a use later?

Fun fact: If you pay attention to the dialogue, choices, and in-battle text, as well as bottom-screen mini-games, you find out that the player character is actually very talkative for a Pokémon game protagonist.

Another fun fact: you can rub your Pokémon after some battles. If your Pokémon pauses when the fanfare plays, you can rub the bottom screen to make it happy.

I skipped AP Calculus today so I could play Pokémon Y with my friends. More specifically, Super Training I'm so overwhelmed by the grandiose of Lumiose City that I'm afraid to move on. So we fought against balloon bots for a good 90 minutes and did a little Pokémon-Amie. It was more fun than I thought.

I got around to catching Xerneas, a while ago. I don't know the catch rate of the legendary, but it must be pretty high- caught it with my 2nd Pokeball.
I think the story so far is pretty nice- as far as it is after catching the legendary.

I just noticed, if you rub Pikachu's electric pouches in Pokemon-Amie, your hand will actually get shocked. :I Does this happen with any other Pokemon or just another hint at Pikachu's supreme "Specialness"?

The Daycare Couple don't look old anymore, they're like in their thirties or forties.

I can confirm that Exp. Share does share Effort Values, so if you're doing any breeding and battling prior to Super Training, make sure to be careful with that.

Oh, flames. That reminds me.


It seems that Pokemon happiness has been taken a step further with Pokemon-Amie. I don't know what it does, but my Pikachu seems to be very close to me, and it always jumps before a battle. I wonder if these effects carry on to Wi-Fi.

Pokémon Amie does nothing on Wi-Fi. It's rather interesting finding the "sweet spot" to rub them.Some are on the head, and some are on the belly. Most hate when you grab their tail or poke them a lot.

Cat, I hate you so much right now...

I NEED A SUN STONE!!!!
My little Helioptile needs to grow. He's so small compared to the rest of my team... ;~;


Also, is it wrong for me to change my goal from completing the game to "OMG, I MUST PET YOU ALL!"

The rate has most certainly been increased. I found 4. (3 of which are Foongus)

Fun fact: you can't touch some Pokémon in Pokémon-Amie for obvious reasons.

Check your bag pockets - there's a held item for that.

Need a trade?

Yep I need to trade.

I also need to find a way to get Armatisse and Yveltal and I would have caught every Kalos Pokemon.

Have we yet decided if the shiny rate has been raised? I'm pretty sure it has.

It probably has been raised. Though everyone seems to be finding shinies but me.

I caught myself Zygarde yesterday, though. I love this guy. (As far as I know, it's based off the dragon which in it's mythology chewed on the roots of Yggdrasil. ) And he looks pretty neat. If they do make a Z version, I think it'd be nice to see how he could tie into the story line.

I haven't found one yet, either. I kind of want to beat the game so I can start hunting without limitations (like my favorite Pokémon being in post-game ).

No worries. A friend tipped me off on where I can find one.

Team Flare couldn't scare a kitten, but they sure do win the award for goofiest evil team ever X3
So if Team Flare is hotter than everyone else, does that make Team Chill cooler than everyone else?

Team Magma and Aqua are fully irrelevant. Don't excite the fans screaming for Hoenn remakes. Though when I did see their name I did say "Hey, hasn't this been done before?"

Team Flare's flair just can't be beat~

But I still like Team Galactic the most. Cyrus's vision was beautiful and they felt like a constant threat. Team Flare doesn't show up too often, haven't seen a single evil base yet, or even a Flare Admin. I think I know who the leader is but I can't be sure...

Team Flare was easily the silliest and most laid-back evil organization ever. I didn't even mind running into them because it was always a good time.

Odd how I like their grunt battle theme more than the battle themes of any other teams' grunts.

I love their team symbol and their ridiculous pose. If I cosplay anything Pokemon related anytime soon, Team Flare Grunt is at the top of the list.

I've been doing so much Super Training these past few days. (What is school?) I can almost fully EV train any Pokemon in just 30 minutes after capture.

It would have been nice to have known that powders don't affect grass types BEFORE Route 14.

Why are so many people in this region obsessed with money? The Scary House was... really pathetic. And what does all this tip giving even DO?

GameFreak is so racist.

That Fairy type gym was just what I needed. Now I'm more well versed on which Pokemon have turned to Fairies and which new ones are Fairies as well. I didn't know the regional Pikachu was a Fairy, or that the... key ring thing... oh God, what IS that?

Yeah, I also heard tipping might raise the shiny rate, but that's absolutely untested and unconfirmed.

Also, if you need money, just go to the Battle Chateau every couple hours with the Amulet Coin.

Oh good, I'm not the only one.

If it does increase shiny rate. I just have terrible luck then... Aw well. I'm still just trying to get in that stupid stylish shop in Lumiose City.....

... Team Flare probably runs that stupid shop...

I haven't yet beaten the game, but I think I found the huge problem: there is practically no post-game whatsoever beyond the usual meta-game and Battle Maison stuff. Looks like, aside from maybe some breeding, I'll be breaking out an older game (maybe I can resume White 2?) or buying Y.

I'd most likely continue my quest to touch them all.... That went somewhere I didn't want it to...
Or get my really loved pokemon and just dominate in my small circle... So far I'm winning this one!

Attempt to compete in Battle Maison. It'll kickstart the post-game plot.

Also, to people that want to get X or Y (or maybe both): get a screen protector for the bottom screen at the very least. You'll thank me later - Super Training introduced a lot of hairline scratches in the centre area of the bottom screen.

I saw that theres no auto-level to lv100 in this game , But it does have the auto-level to lv50 for 6v6 battles. Unless the no restrictions one is auto-leveled. (i havent tryed the 3rd option yet)

I can't confirm, but I'm pretty sure that No Restrictions is the same thing as it was last Gen, what you are is what you are. But Level 50 all free battle is much better than the ultra restrictive flat battling.

No restrictions is what it says - Anything goes, all levels, items, etc. are kept the same.

I'm glad that there is a level-50-all setting though, not only does it make fair battling a lot easier, but it's really handy for checking IVs (It levels UP to 50 as well as down!)

My friend just came into my dorm room and showed me the Shiny Spinda he caught a few minutes ago. How is everyone getting shinies? I've even been trying to find one for the past 2 days.

I'm also jelly of my friend's Spinda. D;

I never get shinies so this doesn't bother me at all~ But if I did get one, I'd want it to be a Klefki. Maybe I should hunt down Klefki hordes...

Yep! You get 7 boxes spare at the end, too, which is very nice compared to the two extra that you had in B/W!

After all that I finally made it to Victory Road. I imagined the first trainer would say something like "You've made it to the final frontier, are you prepared for what's ahead?"
Instead, I get "Everyone keeps challenging me to battles! I just want to be alone with my Pokemon!"

This region XD

The only Kalos pokemon to have are Slurpuff and Aromatisse.

I would really appreciate if someone helped me out because these pokemon require for me to trade.

I have my Slurpuff that we can temporarily trade, but I need an Aromatisse myself.

I think this is something I like about having a worldwide release (and the 3DS not yet being hacked): we have to learn everything together instead of just reading the information discovered while the games were out in Japan only.

I've gone as far as to completely ignore anything detailing mega stone locations, since I'm trying to find them all myself! So far I only have Absolite, Banettite, Blastoisite, Charizardite X, Venusaurite, Alakazite, Abomasite, Mewtwonite X and Ampharosite. I've heard there are 28 in total so this may take some time for me to figure them all out

A dude in Victory Road said "My body is ready." This is when you know it's gone too far.

Having done some of the post-game activities in Pokemon X, I started up Pokemon Y for the first time to journey through Kalos once again. I wasn't a big fan of how easy Pokemon X felt, so throughout Y I won't be using the Exp. All. Based on how often I leveled up while playing X, disabling the feature should make things a lot more pleasantly difficult.

Also, did anyone else notice the return of some sounds when using moves? I got a lot more excited than I feel I should have when I heard the Gen. 1 noises of Psybeam, Psychic, and Hyper Beam. There's just something about hearing noises from the Gameboy error which is pretty great.

There is no Department Store, but Lumiose City does have most of the major stuff (Pokémon Centers with the standard fare, all purchasable Poké Balls, various stones, herbs, juice, haircuts, lottery, Furfrou froufrou, and plenty of battles).


I just realized mail is gone. Did anyone actually use it?

I just realized mail is gone. Did anyone actually use it?
I never understood anything about the mail system.

I didn't have any use for mail. I had no friends to send it to so it just... sat there. But what I DID use were ball seals and I got very upset when they were first removed. So many cool features only last one generation... WHY?

Oh hey, but what about the Vs. Seeker? You didn't answer that part of my question. I want to rebattle the trainers.
