    Truthfully I got bored with the series as well. I did manage to beat White and I have a copy of Black 2 and White 2. Black 2 I need to beat the E4 yet and White 2 I have yet to select my starter.

    The story line is designed for beginners and vets to enjoy, with most of the content for vets being post game. Taking away the 6vs6 auto level battles took a huge part of the game out. Making it so I got bored with even breeding, because finding IVs were a pain and EV training is insane when you have to locate single Pokemon instead of rebattles with trainers.

    Which I believe this change was to balance out the skill level. Most younger players don't take the time to IV breed or EV train. They mash through the game with one high level Pokemon. My 8 year old son as an example, had a level 60 Emboar and a level 65 Keldeo and his next highest level was his level 25 Tranquill. Which even his legendaries were messed up because he adds HMs to his team Pokemon.

    So the game has been changed more to suit younger while keeping the older fans coming back for the history.

    So many things could be done with this series now given the 3DS and Wii U. I would love an app like the Dream Radar made strictly for breeding, IV checking, and EV training.

    I really hope they fix that in this new generation. I don't even know why they changed it in the first place, it's not like anyone was complaining about their pokemon being auto level 100, were they?

    If this reintroduces breeding and competitive battling a la Gen IV, I'll probably invest in a 3DS and the game.

    Certainly no one here was, at the least! :/

    Yeah totally! I'm actually planning on buying a Modded 3DS to capture the footage and post it on youtube. It costs about $400 but it's really worth it.

    I wasn't going to believe it til it was officially announced. Super effective against dragons is nice.
    And that pokemon-amie thing, those looked like the 5 different pokeblock/poffin flavours to me.

    It'd be nice to have final evolution type combinations for the starters though.

    And, Saturday October 12th. I'm supposing people have 4mo countdowns now.

    I wonder what kind of new attacks will consist of Fairy types, or if moves with "normal" typing may change over to Fairy type.

    At least it makes Dragon types not so God-like.

    PSS (Player Search System) looks like the Wi-Fi trade/battle solution for this gen: http://www.pokemonxy.com/en-us/whats_new/ I'm hoping screenshot #3 suggests auto-leveling is back!
