Mega Altaria - DRAGON/FAIRY woo yess this guy is so cute but I'm a bit dissapointed no rainbow or rain or anything

Mega Lopunny - finally a mega for a regular pokemon, this guy is AWESOME. I love love love the ripped tights, and normal/fighting is a perfect fit!

Mega Salamence - beaaaautiful! I don't understand the people hatin on it, it's a really awesome mega! I love the giant wings and how the body has like tucked into it now. The old wings were always strange so these are much better.

Mega ???? - Does no one else think there's another mega not leaked yet? The megas seem to be on a circular page layout grid with 4 quadrants, there should be one more under Altaria?

like below;

Contests - ehh, I hope there's more costumes than that. May looks cute but brendan doesn't even look like him. Looks like the other contest girl will have Altaria, which makes me wonder if you can mega evolve in contests...Or maybe she'll be the one to give you altarite once you beaten the beauty master rank or something...
Woaaah just look at this mega Forelk fanart I just got! Go watch :iconnauticalsparrow: she's amazing!

Hello my little doves! Haven't made a journal in ages!

I was playing Super Smash Brothers Brawl on the weekend with a friend with Lucario, so it's hyped me up for the next game now. I'm super happy Lucario will be back and I hope he becomes MegaLucario for his final smash! (similar to Samus Aran)

Anyway I was thinking how cool would it be if the pokemon trainer was the kalos guy and had Chespin, Braixen and Greninja?

I also wish instead of character recolours, they actually changed the models. For example the trainer could alternate betwen Red, Gold, Brendan, etc.
I wanna farm some magmarizer/electarizer cos I'm terrible at getting BP.
Got tagged by :iconmaster-pixel:

1. I work as a graphic designer for an energy company. This is the only job I've ever had!

2. I'm from Tenerife, and my parents, my brother and me moved to the UK when I was 8 years old. All my family is still in Tenerife.

3. At school I studied Spanish, English, French, Italian and Japanese. I love languages and I'd study more if I could - my favourite part is the origin of words.

4. Before Pokemon came out I wrote my own book of creatures with special powers. My mom always says that Pokemon copied me lol

5. I was super excited when pokemon came out but we had very little money back then. My mum made a deal with me - if I could recite the 150 pokemon in order she would buy me a gameboy - which I did! By the time the 3rd gen had come out I had completely lost interest, but I picked up a copy one day and fell in love all over again.

6. I was brought up with a strong passion for food and cooking. I can cook all manner of spanish food but I really dislike british cuisine (if you can call it that).

7. I don't really eat much meat, not for moral reasons but I just don't like the taste. I also don't drink alcohol as it tastes rancid.

8. I'm absolutely obsessed with Dinosaurs and Jurassic Park. I'm also obsessed with flight and birds. Oh and the sea and sea creatures!

9. I have a massive collection of Playmobil from when I was little. (I still buy some now and then...)

10. When I was a little kid my parents made me believe that I turned into a dog at night as I would wake up all sweaty. I spent many years believing this.

I won't tag anyone, but feel free to do this if you want!
Boo!
Are you getting in the Halloween spirit? I've never celebrated it (it's not very popular here) but for the past week I've been planning a Halloween event for my mmo, involving a quest and all new maps...

Can you suggest more Halloweeny pokemon to put in my game?
Or just link me to one you've made or someone else has made that you like

Please just...no more jack-o-lanterns or pumpkins - Pumpkaboo is enough!
Anyone got Wartortle in their safaris or something awesome like Joltik, Sunkern, Pachirisu, Gastrodon, Bronzong, Munna, Palpitoad, Sawsbuck, Klang or LILLIPUP please?!

I have a dragon safari with noibat, druddigon and gabite - 2793-0618-8758
Sorry tl;dr to follow;

Overall, XY are a piece of art. I love the leap to the new graphics and I'm glad they haven't completely gotten rid of the pixel art - the PSS icons in particular are a nice touch. As part of a long running series much like Mario or Sonic, the leap to full 3D was a scary prospect to fans for a while but they've done a fantastic job and set a stellar example for other series to follow.

I commend the story, the graphics, the music, the multiplayer connectivity. For the first time ever you are able to view if your friends are online without having to go into a union room, and trade or battle at the click of a button! This alone has been a massive high-point for these games. More than ever I'm seeing my friends battling it out in real time whilst going on my adventure - it really makes you feel connected to something larger than yourself.

Whilst I absolutely love the new trainer art, after a while it begins to feel that the battles are slightly disconnected to the game, without seeing the trainers behind their pokemon sending out orders - at least personally. I was also confused that the evil team members had full 3D models, whilst gym leaders did not...

The new characters are amazing also and I love that the whole region is set in France. The tiny details like the french names on the signs, etc, make a big difference. I think everyone must now be thinking "what would my country be like in the pokemon world?"

As for my negatives - exploration is very limited. Where before you could literally traverse every inch of water on a map, it's been severely locked down to the point that surfing is almost not required. When I saw the region map covered in rivers I was really excited at the prospect of finding lots of secret paths - of which there were few.

I also feel like the game's pace is incredibly unbalanced - it takes a very long time to reach the 2nd gym, with a fair bit of story involved, setting a presecent for the rest of the game. Unfortunately, after the 2nd gym all the gyms are basically the next town over. The champion you only really meet once/twice, the legendary is very suddenly shoe-horned into the plot, and there is a serious lack of post-game story and areas to visit.

A major pet peeve for me, I wish they wouldn't drop new features and improvements every time they release a game. Things like pokemon following, vs seeker, habitat list, key system, grass shaking/water/dustclouds etc were amazing additions and the game feels lacking without them. On the other hand I love the new ecounter methods and it really feels like the pokemon game is more alive with them.

Major shame on gamefreak for giving it such terrible streetpass features!! I was expecting it to download teams, battle them, give away a free pokemon, create a hidden base...nothing! Just stupid pokemiles you exchange for lame items...booooo
Oh and one more thing - lumiose is a chore to explore, I wish they could remove the transitions between areas and just let you freely explore. Oh and one more! The camera can be so painful, like when you go on the surf route and it massively zooms in so you have no idea where you're going...Why couldn't they let us control the camera ourselves akin to pikmin?

Finally, of course...the amount of new pokemon. I set my expectations very low but even then I was disappointed. It seems like they just added one line for each type, fusing multiple types together where possible. I also expected a few evolutions of old pokemon and was surprised to get only one - sylveon. (Mega evolutions do not count).

Any of the negatives mentioned here are massively overshadowed by the over flowing positives of the game and should be taken with a pinch of salt.

On a final point, this was the first game in the series which brought me to tears at multiple points in the story.

Bring on pokemon Z or whatever it will be!
OMG it's so unoriginal! It's sooo lazy this gen is the worst ever! Sugimori is getting so lazy! WTF it's like someone just copied and pasted it, then flipped it and changed the hue from blue to pink ughhhhh. I think I'm gonna quit pokemon!! Pokemon are meant to be animals not SWORDS this is so stupid!! Game freak has run out of ideas, they have no creativity at all!!! Why is there so much change I hate all this new stuff!!!

- is what I would say if I was stupid. Doublade looks awesome and I love fusion evos. But if you don't, that's fine! Don't catch it or use it (;
My excitement is so high for XY, I honestly can't wait I'm even taking a whole week off work just to play it when it's out!

Seriously though, pokemon fans can be the worst. Can I please enjoy pokemon without people bitching about it all day long everytime anything new is revealed. They complain nothing changes, then complain when stuff changes...seriously... You've followed it for this long please have some faith in the creators and respect for what they do for a living.

Or just go back and play rby, no one is forcing you to get the new games!

Ok rant over, my apologies I just had to say it.
     

Look its wings are CLEAR! What does this mean? Ideas;
  • Changes depending on area you caught it
  • Absorbs pokemon type energy? pink = fairy? gives it a fairy move?
  • Works like Spinda
  • Mimics other pokemon (Butterfree)
  • Wings are screens and colours are pixels
  • Clear is the "neutral" state, it lights up when attacking.
  • Season changes.
  • Customizable like the poodle.
XY is coming out so SOON can't we all just be happy together? <3
Omg his evo ;__; I promised myself I wouldn't spoil myself but I couldn't help it. It's SO CUTE. Probably by favourite pokemon ever right there.

It's so...round! and adorable ;__; that nose! omg It looks more like a prevo than an evo lol.

to see : bulbanews.bulbagarden.net/wiki…
Also I got all  649 pokemon now, thanks!

Who got me the 3 month premium? Thank you so much *___* I feel so touched honestly who would do this please tell me!

EDIT: The person has come forward so it's all good!
I had a lot of time last week on holiday so I finally tried to complete my dex (which included trading like 200 pokemon across different games to myself...) but I'm still missing a few!

Would anyone be able to help me? I can't really offer much in return sorry...
I really need; (legit only please!)
Deoxys
Arceus
Shaymin (that can use and with a gracidea flower please?)
Spinda (aaaargh)

EDIT: sorry I should make it clear I want them to keep, as I'm trying to actually store them all every single stage in my pc boxes.
I'll give points for the legendaries if you want.
OR I've got some spare meloettas and genesects in return if you want.
What mega forms do you want to see in XY?

I'm most excited to see all the starters get mega forms, mega samurott, mega torterra...aaaah
You wouldn't walk up to a group of people on the street and start dissing their clothes would you?

Learn some manners and respect, I'm so disappointed in all you "artists" out there dissing and mocking other artists for expressing themselves. Friend groups will exist regardless of whether they have icons to show it or not.

If an artist decides he doesn't want others to use his work or copy it that's his right as the creator.

Instead of being jealous why don't you put that energy to good use and make your own even more amazing things that are not derivative of other's art. Do you really want to be a bad copy of someone else?
lol what, seriously? Does this mean all final starter evos will get a new form? (I refuse to call it a mega evolution it's clearly a form, you can't switch from evolutions like mewtwo did in the special).

It would be so unfair if only blaziken got a mega form. I wanna see Torterra's and Samurott! How could Samurott possibly look any more badass?

I guess this is their counter to fairy types, and will hopefully shut people up who say pokemon is for little kids.

Gogoat-prevo, I knew it was coming and I was hoping it would look better, but it's ok.

Bunny - don't like it! It's got such a gimmicky cartoony design lol.

Hamster, this gen's pikachu - I LOVE IT. Nintendo finally made a hamster and it's way better than anything anyone has done before. It's adorable!!
Sorry I haven't been very active lately! It's very summery in the uk at the moment and I've been on holiday / playing loads of videogames.

Aaaanyway - The new pokemon leaks! Sooo awesome.
I love the new professor, he's really refreshing to see and now I just hope he isn't called Patrice in english as that's a terrible name (no offense for people called Patrice, I mean just as a professor name!)

The new fairy pokemon - eh, cute I suppose. Doesn't really do it for me. The bird seems chibi to the death, it's head is SO big lol. I'm interested to see what they evolve into.

Pancham's evo - doesn't disappoint, I like the whole cape thing but I was hoping the leaf would turn into something bigger, not just grow a longer stalk haha.

The new squids - by far my favourites! SO DAMN creative and the evo is so badass, the way they flipped it and made the tentacles into hair, but the body into like a suit is soooo awesome. Plus no water-types anywhere to be seen. I guess these are the ones that leaked on pokebeach weeks ago.

Xerneas as fairy and Yveltal as dark/flying makes sense. Glad they finally revealed them.

Team Flare/Flair..interesting. I hope it's Flair and not flare as just a fire-type team sounds really boring. (not to mention fire types are so rare they'd have so little variation). Their quest for riches is touching my idea about my evil team for Atlas so I hope that's where the similarities end...

The new gym leaders - eh...I feel like gym leader designs have dropped since DPPT...The characters for this game look more like characters from a generic shounen manga or something (looking at you, rivals).

The invention kid just screams doctor octopus lol, I have no idea what that sun thing is. I'm guessing he's gym leader of that desert base that looked very technical. It looks like he has a younger sister beside him in the screenshot so that should be interesting.

Zakuro looks cool though, I'm thinking he's a rock type leader actually, on closer inspection he looks like a spelunker and his gym badge looks like rocks, with geodes/gems on his head. This is refreshing to the rock type generic trainers.

Also Honedge is another extremely well designed pokemon, the way the holes in the scabbard match the lines on the sword to make a face is genius. I also love the whole celtic vibe it has going on.
