To be fair, a lot can happen to a smartphone game in 5-6 months. I'm withholding judgment until it's out.

The CG trailer showed they clearly know what people want out of the experience.

They'll likely work their way to include them. It's smart to go with the original 151 Pokemon first because that's what the mass are more familiar with. It's a smart way to grab attention of lapse fans.

I started with Yellow. And I think most 151 mons are boring.


Also don't care for a majority of gen IV and VI mons as well.

Gen 1 designs are my favorite, not because I grew up with them but because I largely prefer simplicity in character designs. There's something about the much later entries that kinda misses the mark big time in regards to the designs. Especially Gen 4 onwards.

Gen 5 tried to be like Gen 1 but failed so miserably. A lot of ugly ass designs and the grand majority of them looked over-designed. The good designs (which were actually great but make up very few) did not make up for that terrible generation.

I loved most of Gen 5's designs. A few were ass (the genies were ugly as sin) but I thought it was a good attempt at making new designs out of similar species to Gen 1's. In all honesty, most Gen 1 designs were too simple. They have a lot of charm but if Gen 1 and Gen 5 swapped, Gen 1 designs would get raked over the coals without nostalgia goggles.

Eh, Voltorb is suppose to disguise as a Pokeball. I can't really fault his design, I think that was the entire point of its existence. I think Poliwrath is fine though.

As far as the those other 3 you've posted for Gen 5, I think the eagle looks neat. The worst looking one out of all of gen 5 are those weird cloud god pokemon on the other hand. So awful.

(On a side note, I really cannot stand Gen 5's sprite animations. The scaling and rotating is so bad.)

New information and screenshots.









Quote
Get on your feet and step outside to find and catch wild Pokémon. Explore cities and towns around where you live and even around the globe to capture as many Pokémon as you can. As you move around, your smartphone will vibrate to let you know you're near a Pokémon. Once you've encountered a Pokémon, take aim on your smartphone's touch screen and throw a Poké Ball to catch it. Be careful when you try to catch it, or it might run away! Also look for PokéStops located at interesting places, such as public art installations, historical markers, and monuments, where you can collect more Poké Balls and other items.

In Pokémon GO, you will gain levels as a Trainer, and at higher levels you will be able to catch more powerful Pokémon to complete your Pokédex. You'll also have access to more powerful items, such as Great Balls, to give you a better shot at catching Pokémon. Keep exploring and encountering Pokémon to raise your level!

There are other ways to add Pokémon to your roster, too. If you catch the same species of Pokémon enough times, you'll get the opportunity to evolve one of them. And as you explore, you may find Pokémon Eggs at PokéStops, which will hatch after you've walked a certain distance. When they hatch, you may find Pokémon you've never seen before!

Some wild Pokémon will appear only in certain places near where you live or around the world. For example, some Water-type Pokémon may appear only near lakes and oceans. If you're away from home, be sure to stay alert for Pokémon you wouldn't normally encounter!

At a certain point in the game, you'll be asked to join one of three teams. Once you join a team, you'll gain the ability to assign Pokémon you've caught to empty Gym locations or to a location where a team member has placed one of his or her Pokémon. Like PokéStops, Gyms can be found at real locations in the world. Each player can place only one Pokémon at a particular Gym, so you're encouraged to work with others on the team to build up a strong defense.

If a Gym is already claimed by another team, you can challenge that Gym using your own Pokémon. Using the Pokémon you've caught, engage in battle with the defending Pokémon at the Gym to claim control.

A wide variety of challenges are available that highlight many different categories, such as catching Pokémon and exploration. By completing these challenges, you'll unlock achievement medals that will appear in your player profile. Try your best to unlock as many medals as you can!

A portable device called the Pokémon GO Plus will enable Pokémon GO players to enjoy the game even while they’re not looking at their smartphones. The device connects to a smartphone via Bluetooth and notifies the player about events in the game—such as the appearance of a Pokémon nearby—using an LED and vibration. In addition, players can catch Pokémon or perform other simple actions by pressing the button on the device. Pokémon GO Plus will be available soon. Check back for more details.

An early field test limited to Japan only is planned for Pokémon GO while the game is still in active development. The features, available languages, design, and overall appearance are not final. Please stay tuned for information about expansion of the field test to other markets.

Pokémon GO will be available for download at no charge on the App Store and Google Play. In-app purchases will also be available.

Holy shit you can make your own gyms and fight challengers. :lawd

Fricking Japan getting the field test even though Niantic is a US company... 😒

Still no ETA. :'(

It sounds like the skeleton is Ingress but they're doing a lot of work to flesh out the "single-player" and making catching Pokemon super quickly.

When you hit level 5 you choose a team (RBY) and then capture gyms. Not sure what the actual battling experience is like but it's pretty stripped down it seems, just like catching.

Is there a trick to catching stuff? There's an Eevee outside my office. I threw like 30 fuckin pokeballs at it and couldn't get it. I had this same problem with some bat pokemon last night.

I caught Bulbasaur in my bathroom, which means pokemon have been in the same room I've shit in.

I was trying to do that. Is it bad to bounce the ball off the pokemon? I think I tried just about every throwing option. Getting it kinda close in front, close in back, going crazy with it, beaning the pokemon. Does it have something to do with CP? The Eevee had ?? for CP iirc.
