All right, maybe I'm not the only one that this is news for but... what?
This is the first time The Pokemon Company has decided to go with a "numbered" version of Pokemon.
It feels a lot less like Pokemon, when you think about it that way... but anyway, here is a link to the IGN information on the game
Do you think this is a bad direction in the name of the pokemon game version?
I personally feel that it won't really affect die-hard pokemon fans (pokefans), but it really does seem inadequate to me; like a drawback instead of something creative and new. =\
Supposedly they are releasing new legendary pokemon in this version, and I personally don't think that's enough to warrant my purchase of a second version of a game I already have. Obviously they'll have some story differences, etc., but it really seems cheap to me from what I've seen thus far.
(Yes, I'm a pokefan; don't judge me. ^^)
