not bad, though the gear named Gear is just lazy.

Though, every gen has had its share of poorly designed pokemon.

Ratatta, Caterpie, spearow, ekans, etc.

People are too harsh on these things.

My fav outta that group is the gear one. (machines FTW!) I hope it's English name is a little more creative than just "Gear" though.

The others are cute but there's nothing I'd want to have in my party outta them.

The top two? Not really... The gear isn't any worse (if you call this bad) than Bronzor, and the thing on the top-right isn't any worse from some baby pokemon.

PS: First female professor? Wait, Professor Ivy..............
PSS: It seems the next game will use Kanji?! That's good. Pure hiragana is pretty hard to read...

Yin and Yang legendaries and a fire type Daruma pokemon?

Guess they're going for a buddhist inspiration this time?

Female Professor? Change have come... not really...

I really hope there is a Dolphin Pokemon, because It's so sad for them not to have these cute, smart and playful sea creatures...

Hmm, they're not so bad, any new fire and electric types are good in my mind, given how pathetic the variety was in Diamond, Pearl and Platinum. As for the others, the Crocodile looks kind of Badass and it has new type combination, so I'm getting that fucker first chance I get. The Psychic Pig thing looks like shit, the Chinchilla might this generations Ratatta, and Isshu looks like the New York Area. (Or failing that, Vancouver.)

So the girl's pokedex is essentially a pink and white iPod. Nice.

And anyone think that Munna looks like the baby form of Birdo from Mario?

New legendary types. I was totally off with ice/dragon for reshiram, as it's Fire/Dragon

Zekrom was leaked due to that Seiyuu's mistake or w/e but we now know for sure it's Electric/Dragon.

I must say, I can't wait to get these guys. Fire/Dragon and Electric/Dragon make for nice new additions to the legendaries we already have.

Thing is, Reshiram's weakness to stealth rock is gonna put it down.

For those who says that they are running out of ideas for the designs of the new Pokemon, apparently some of them are old designs way back in Gen 1 that didn't make it into the game according to some Pokemon forums I go to. Heck they even implied Mun'Na in Red and Blue.

Yeah, that gear thing is on par with Bronzor on the terrible scale, but at least Bronzor had a cool evolution in Bronzong. And when I said first female professor I meant in the games; I am aware of the existence of Professor Ivy.

Oh, I wasn't targeting that at you, but at the magazine that says "First female professor in Pokemon".

Maybe they'll nerf stealth rock in GenV...?!

Fire Pokemon got screwed hard with the introduction of that move.

Namu Namu Namu Namu. That chinchilla pokemon is so cute. But me thinks it might not be very powerful. Oh well, I'll just make it pwn.......until I bring my awesome Gengar and adorable Vaporeon.

the mechanics behind Zoroark's ability has been revealed. He takes the form of whoever is second in your party at the time it comes out. Thus, I feel that this pokemon, depending on its movepool and stats will change the way competitive battling works. I'm calling uber right now.

Yeah, probably gonna be Uber. As long as Zoroark has a decent stat distribution and a good stat up move then it's gonna be hella easy to set it up for a sweep with an ability like that. Just put a Ghost-type or something in the second slot, switch in Zoroark at the opportune moment, set up as the opponent probably won't use a Fighting-type move, sweep.

In other news, I'm really liking the map of Isshu. Looks like a really interesting region.

Someone calculated based on the level 10 stats that its BST is about the same as Lucario.

Unless it has insane speed like above 105 or a 100+ reliable stab, it's not going to be Uber. Its ability is annoying, but hardly that game breaking compared to say Shadow-Tag or Drizzle, or has insane stats and typing like Palkia.

At that level, its almost impossible to determine what the base stats of any pokemon could be..especially since its only a pre-evo poke. So i'd just ignore anyone claimin they've calculated them.
