Thoughts on Pokemon X

Posted on


So I recently finished playing Pokemon X, and it was great. This really is pokemon at its best. This game is a improvement over anything from last gen (black/white, black2/white2). All Pokemon are now 3D cell shaded and they look really good. I was skeptical over the transition due to the Pokedex 3ds app, where the pokemon looked ugly and I am glad to proven wrong. It seems like Gamefreak went with the complete opposite approach to Black and White, with having a small number of new Pokemon, combined with Pokemon from all the other regions before beating the league, instead of all brand new Pokemon until beating the league. That was a great idea. Less is more right? THE POKEMON IN X AND Y ACTUALLY ARE COOL AND CUTE, NOT STUPID RUBBISH BAGS AND ICE CREAM CONES! The new addition of the fairy type has evened the playing field against dragon types ( sadly now my awesome dragons get owned by fairies 😦 ). Another addition is mega evolution, when Pokemon temporarily evolve again, change appearance, and gain new stats or even a new type. I have to admit I thought it was stupid and it was just like a Digimon rip off when I saw it in the trailers, but after actually using mega evos, it’s actually really fun, and you can only mega evolve once per battle. I was hoping that X would have an awesome story like B/W ( the one good thing about B/W), but it was fine for a pokemon game. I was also hoping for an actual rival again like Silver, but no we get that guy who is ‘oh can I have a battle please, friend, neigbourino’, but again it’s still fine. The new overall design and same gameplay is enough, as it was a really fun Pokemon Game, and one of the best! This is definitely the best game on the 3DS system, and that 2 year wait for that Pokemon Game on the 3DS was totally worth it!
