Not to sound too crazy, but a friend of mine made a funny comparison about these Mega forms...

"If they only switch into these forms in battle, does that mean they're going Super Saiyan?"
Carrot

hah ;b

I sincerely hope it's not a only-in-battle sort of thing >->

I suspect that it will be similar to Giratina and the Griseous Orb, where he takes a new forme as long as the item is held. Given the Knight Statue that the giveaway Torchic comes with, I figure that there will be a held item for each type that allows them to enter their mega forms. The Knight Statue affecting fighting types.

Yeah, not a bad assumption here. So in that case it just kinda ups their game? Ugh, if like, every battle starts with them "mega-volving" I think I'll turn off battle animations even earlier this time around haha xD

What about Shin Megami Tensei IV, Fire Emblem Awakening, the two new Phoenix Wright games, and the next Etrian Oddessy game coming out soon. <:3
Carrot

I've actually never played any of these xD Though I've only heard amazing things. I just haven't been playing a lot of console/hand held games (PC ALL DA WAY~) - so having a 3DS is pretty trivial lol. BUT THE NEW SMASH BROS, AND POKEMON IS MORE THAN REASON ENOUGH FOR MEEEE :3

I love the lack of originality on the 3 upper models :p They are the same designs, but with some extra "accesories" lol

This series really needs to die

Edit: And I used to love this ficticial world, but the last generation is too much change in a single burst. It's like, I can't assimilate it all at once >.3

lol damn, that's the sad and realistic truth. I still remember when I was 10 years old and people was crazy about it, it was like a big fashion, and today it still have the same effect, even when the product is not the same anymore <.< (and with "not the same" I mean, it already looks mostly like digimon that pokemon :p)
Daneasaur

The "storm" died down and now it's no longer slapped on every single thing out there (pokemon waffles spring to mind...) , but also keep in mind that the creators of the franchise know that this can't be like Call of duty: IE: they can't simply repackage the game ,call it something different, and expect people to buy it.

To do this, they have been maturing with the fans and trying new things.

Form changes, branching evolutions, gender specific evolutions, TMs no longer being 1 time uses, scaling EXP growth, insane breeding mechanics, legendaries being important to the storyline,  all these things being brought out and refined through the years.

I loved this series since day one and am always excited to see the creators still have ways of utterly surprising us.
FurCollector
5 years, 1 month ago
Hehe I'm another of these fans of the first days, and this lasted until my dad forbade me to watch this series because he saw the epileptic porygon case in the news lol Soo, I had to move to the game version to continue enjoying this world :p And, since then I enjoyed it and stuff, but sadly my heart broke after several generations, when I started to notice that the games needed so many extra stuff (other cartridges, consoles, cables, events, etc) to be completed.
This version looks extremely polished, but I know it would be another imcomplete poke game if I get it, so this time I wont pick it up >3>
So, actually I can only enjoy this world's concept, and check the artistic part about it, and how you can see, somethimes I can feel offended when I dont like the designs they offer :p
Daneasaur
5 years, 1 month ago
Keep in mind that they are highly aware of all the "can't get this that or the other thing" and instead of you needing extra stuff, they are making world wide wireless trading a one touch access device.

Need a pokemon you haven't 'seen' in your dex? That's what online friends are for.

Also, the only pokemon design I personally don't like is Probopass. Nosepass should have turned into a moai, not a zamboni.
Carrot

OK BUT LET'S TALK ABOUT THE PORN??? SINCE THAT'S LIKE, EASILY THE BEST PART OF ALL OF THIS? xD!

Despite how good the games will be or WON'T be, honestly the porn is gonna be awesome >->

From my side, I'll wait to see what new cuteness/fluffyness they drop for us. That's what I need to get into the porn after all, hehehe >:3

doesn't any one notice that they look as if they been fused with legendary pokemon? Giratina, Zekrom and Reshiram?
MarKrishamun

Arceus as well , and a few others?
Carrot
5 years, 1 month ago
mmm. I can kinda see where you're coming from - but I actually just think they might have a few concept artists as far as the pokemon go. So some repeated features are pretty common.

But word on the street says it's a hold item that makes them all super - so, not more fusion-ha sorta things~
kenji321

Well they seem to not be 4th evolutions and only can be triggered via battle, however.  My blaziken can finally be put into Tekken now.  So I'm happy hahaah.

Carrot

SpottyFerret
5 years, 1 month ago
I'm super excited for some of them. Think the Mawile one looks really cool. Apparently an item called Blaziken Knight which will be held by the Torchic to be given away to players from October 12th to January 15th has something to do with them. Like Zapper, I figured it would be a mega if item is held, not mega if it isn't. I just hope it's not another bunch of trade evolutions.

Also epic sheep will make you count the seconds until your death!
Carrot
5 years, 1 month ago
See, this'll be interesting - Would the mega transformation out-perform other hold item favorites? Like those Choice band/Choice Specs? I'd imagine there'll still be builds of pokemon that would prefer passing up on their mega form, just to maximize their damage.

Either that, or the mega forms will be totally OP - and the only way to stand up to one, is at a serious type advantage or also mega form'd xD. We'll see, we'll see.... OR - Megaforms will be super fucking hard to get? Like, the new shinies or something, maybe even more difficult. That'd be cool. Except, that torchic event kinda puts a wrench in that...
zenmigawa
5 years, 1 month ago
As cool as they look, I'm like "okay, did Game Freak run out of ideas, or will these Mega forms actually mean anything meaningful to the franchise as a whole?"  It just seems like they're now doing to all 'mon of the previous five gens what Kyurem did to Zekrom/Reshiram, a FUSION HA!!!  But now with X/Y's mascot legendaries.  And not... too many people were impressed back then.

I... REALLY hope Game Freak didn't just throw this in 'cuz they were running out of ideas...
Carrot
5 years, 1 month ago
I can guarantee you lack of ideas is never the problem. Artists don't run out of ideas O.o

What is probably the major deciding factor - would be if it's a good business move or not.

Is this sort of change (which isn't entirely huge mind you, these aren't evolutions or fusion-ha - this is a hold item that makes them super mode I guess (or so it seems for now)) a fun one to redesign everything (appealing to the artists) and EVERYTHING even back from 1st gen (appealing to all past poke-fans) as well as being flashy, fun, and colorful (appealing to kids) and generally kinda bad ass (appealing to the older poke-fans). It's also an opportunity to balance the gaming mechanics (or totally fuck it up (if it was remotely balanced before)) for the gamers.

So, this is PROBABLY how an American company would be thinking about it - since profitable product is typically the main goal. However, Japan isn't quite as Americanized as far as business goes - and they've been known to just go with an idea, rather than manipulate it to make money - despite how harmful this can be to the company.

I dunno. I think it's a fun smart move.

This is officially the point where I've cemented that this is no longer the series I grew up with. I'm officially off the train now.

That being said, it kind of helps that I've distanced myself this much when thinking about Pokemon now. I feel like this is now like a reboot of the series that premiered 15 or so years ago. And when I think of it that way it seems like they're alright. Still not a big fan of the designs though! I feel like the farther you go in a series the more you have to "add onto" it. And I really feel like they kinda are just adding, rather, tacking on features and colors almost randomly. Okay maybe that's not fair, but I think there are ways that they could make nice additions to previous pokemon that look better than what we have now.

Still, this really is kinda a...big thing. I feel like this might be the first generation I skip, if not stop right here.
Carrot
5 years, 1 month ago
Yeaaaaaaaah i guesssssssssssssss.

I dunno, it's hard to say for me. As of the past few years, the only sort of pokemon things I've been keeping up on is the porn lmao. And good porn, will always be, good porn.

With that in mind, new designs? For new good porn? You can't possibly lose. xD
DJPoopypants
5 years, 1 month ago
Well that's something we can all agree on! ;D *winks at the camera and dings*

Though even then...I personally am so bound to all forms of canon that like, if I feel like the concept is weird even then I can't quite get into it. So many people can just pick up a design and fap to it, but I NEED that rich, well-written context around it for me to work xC
Carrot
5 years, 1 month ago
Sure~ And good artists can make that context in the art themselves~ You won't even question the good stuff - Just like, wow, that's actually hot O.o.

And don't get me wrong, I'm pretty picky when it comes to smut in general. Out of like, 200 images, I'll save maybe 5. Maybe.

I guess there are none that have 4 in a row, then again these arent technically "evolutions" either. more like ultimate forms or something that can be triggered in battle I think. Either way this next gen is looking to be better than the last.

there was a funny pick of absol's overcharged form (i think thats what ill call it]) where she was talking to her trainer she said 'look trainer im fluttershy' *snicker* also love lucario's new form its a little blurry but i can make out enough to know its epic

I like how everyone is going "OMG NINTENDOZ HAS NO IDER WHAT THEY ARE DOING FOREVAAAARRR RUINEDD11111"

Dudes and dudettes, it's called "something new".

Anyway, they are looking to be primarily activated as a form change, though I don't think we'll need to see it form change mid battle.

They aired an early video of Mega Mewtwo a few months back in japan and they didn't show it changing form, it just started in the different form in the battle.
Carrot
5 years, 1 month ago
Oh ok, kinda like Arceus and the plates? Which, I never fucked with, but I assume it didn't start the battle like, "O WOW ARCEUS IS FIGHTING NOW!?!?"

And yeah~ New is good :>
Daneasaur
5 years, 1 month ago
Yup, battle starts and instead of it being a regular Lucario, it's an alternate form with Adaptability, making those steel and fighting moves even more powerful.
SL350
5 years, 1 month ago
Well at least they're changing it up.  It's what I expect them to do for a series that has lasted this long.  I don't really get the people that say, "This isn't Pokemon."  Then what is?  Pokemon is at that point to where it's damned if you do, damned if you don't only because it's been around for quite some time.  I've been following Pokemon since the 90's craze and I can say that Pokemon still feels like Pokemon to me.  I'm not as hardcore as others may be for Pokemon games, but I typically enjoy each core entry.  As long as the core Pokemon games stay within the RPG genre, it will still be Pokemon.  People are just naturally resistant to change.  
Daneasaur
5 years, 1 month ago
THANK YOU. So many people can't see this.

it's turning into the "sonic fan" situation. ""It isn't the original version, I hate it!" and then when it's like the original "Why don't they do anything NEW?" they do something new. "It isn't the original version, I hate it!"

Rinse and repeat.
ruink

hypocrites like that need to stop playing pokémon IMHO.  now I, like many other trainers, have my choice pics from each region, but to say the new stuff isn't the original and busting out the originals isn't new is a bunch of bullshit.  I didn't like (and still don't like) the rotation battle concept, and I don't play it, but it isn't like I won't watch and learn.  I have done rotation battles against other trainers, so I'm no hypocrite in saying it.
Carrot
5 years, 1 month ago
Naw I totally agree. I've been apart of pokemon since it first came to America (and I was 5?!!?!).

And though they may do some things that I might question, it's still pokemon, and they still make cool stuff. It's still an enormous world that people can enjoy, and it's still a fun idea that I STILL wish was totally real.

Besides, if Nintendo manages to completely ruin the franchise, it's not like it'd ruin my experiences of the earlier things O.o So pokemon is always solid imo.

BESIIIIDES. New designs for porn artists to make awesome porn of?!?!?! Like seriously? YES PLZ. As long as there is new generations of pokemon, there will be new porn. REGARDLESS of how shitty the anime is - regardless of how shitty the games can become - there will always be good porn |3
ruink
5 years, 1 month ago
well said.

I noted before that Ampharos's form is the only cool looking one, but being the ever-evolving trainer, I hope that this new region modeled after France doesn't disappoint.  all that's missing to me is the one thing Game Freak has avoided since Johto

The ONE thing I would like to change on Pokemon is the overworld...I'd love if it didn't look so "tile-based". It would be darn awesome if it was more like Golden Sun Dark Dawn on the DS

new forms are nothing new. thi scould easy change how alot of battles go. I fits a simple stats redistribution, and  type change, i could vary battle styles ALOT. you already have faerie changing how people will have all dragon teams, giving some of the more popular types a new play style, will vary things, so you arn't fighting the same teams over and over
Carrot
5 years, 1 month ago
Right? yeah - I like never power-game pokemon, it just takes way too much time with the EVs/IVs/Natures/Behaviour etc etc. Fuuuuck that lmao.

But I have a ton of respect for them trying to balance out some pokemon. Ones that may never be in a team can actually be a valuable asset now. So, mechanics wise - Awesome, it's good to see them trying~
KingOfAcesX

am.... i the only one who thinks these designs look...bad, like mewthree or Megamewtwo,whatever,  is the only one that actually looks like they tried to make it look like..something, the rest look more like fan made alterations i would see while browsing DA . i mean come on , they literally just slapped hair on ampharos lol
Carrot
5 years, 1 month ago
LOL! I wouldn't particularly say these are bad designs xD!

I mean, apparently these aren't full blown evolutions, and more like - super mode. So, it makes sense that they aren't varying from the original design too much. And if that's the case, then megamewtwo actually stands out from the bunch a ton O.o.

In any case, I typically prefer other artists' interpretations when it comes to Pokemon to be honest. Like, the originals are cool, but (especially for porn?!?) I like seeing more form and pushed characteristics, which other artists (yep, DA folk too) have done since forever.
KingOfAcesX
5 years, 1 month ago
true it is nice to see what other artists do with the design but im looking at it less from a ..fanart point of view , and just from the artists of the official designs themselves.for most of them i feel like even if there just  slight alterations they still couldve done better , but these are only the few of  many more megapokemon forms so i guess i cant really judge them yet, i just find it weird that  the others look like alterations but mewtwo looks entirely different   , tho he is a legendary but stiiiill.
Carrot
5 years, 1 month ago
I mean, design is often a personal sort of choice. Because you disagree with a design doesn't make it bad. Because I like a design, doesn't make it good. If it appeals to their audience, and succeeds in its purpose, then it works.

Of course, it could always appeal more, and it can always succeed more - so I'm never saying that these designs are PERFECT xD. Obviously there is gonna be some over-design here and there (which attracts kids), and there's gonna be some lack luster designs, (which, some pokemon are just meh, and there will be bigger fish to fry, it happens.)

The unfortunate thing about working for a company, is that they usually aren't as passionate of the subject as their fans. So having something be "passable" (as in "it'll sell") - rather than having something SPECTACULAR (as in, "I'm so proud of this creation") is really quite common.

Here's a fun thing - because I'm interested in what you're envisioning. Redesign em! I wanna see~
KingOfAcesX
5 years, 1 month ago
pppfftp nigga u crazy, aint nobody got time for that,there designs don't bother me THAT much ,  and i wasn't saying that i had better ideas in mind , im just saying that -THEY- couldve done better,looking at what theyve put out in the past, and plus its all my opinion of course , im not saying i think this is bad and everyone else should , i was just finding it weird that among-st my friends and most of the internet apparently, im the only one who doesn't really like them   , and yea i completely forgot about the whole  "passable" deal , they have 600+ designs  so it makes sense that  being so late in the series the uniqueness  in each of them is gonna get a bit less and less.

K, won't let me reply to your comment.

My guess is that they'll be an end game thing. I've read that there will be other requirements to unlocking them beyond just the item, too. I'm also sure they'll be banned from competitive tournaments for the time being until enough are released that they can make a special tournament just for them.

For Torchic he'll only be available for a certain number of months, won't be tradable on the GTS, and the item he holds won't be available anywhere else. So while he'll be easy to get in that time, afterwards anyone who missed out is sol until they do another event.

I'm also interested to see what they do with these items when the generation after XY comes out since items aren't sent with pokemon that move to a new generation. Maybe these Mega forms will just be exclusive to the upcoming generation. Whatever the case it seems that if a player doesn't like the Mega forms they can simply elect not to equip the item on their pokemon and leave it at that.

Bonus info, Kangaskhan has such a form shift... or rather, her baby does as it jumps out of her pouch and can battle alongside of her. This makes it so that Kangaskhan can attack twice every turn.
