- N bonds with Pokemon; "catches" Legendary and bonds with it
- you battle with N, then Ghetis; authorities come in and arrest Ghetis; N and you are left alone
- N talks with you, and releases Legendary from it's Pokeball; Legendary just sits in midair
- N bids you adieu, then credits flash suddenly pop up
- after credits, Legendary flies by with somebody riding it; N is said to be in a distant land with a Dragon Pokemon

I'm really not sure how else you could interpret that as anyone but N riding whatever Legendary it is zooming by at the end.

Because Reishiram returns to Dragonspiral Tower where you can catch him...

That said I was mostly basing this off of a bit of a wiki article I read...that seems to have changed since then...

That said, the fact that he got away doesn't mean he's going to be in this. I don't see any confirmation of Giovanni, Archie, Maxie or Cyrus coming back...

Perhaps a new enemy? Although the start of the trailer does make an interesting case:



If you pause it at about 20 seconds, we see the shadow of Kyurem/Reshiram/Zekrom flying overhead.

Good news, though! It looks like the ninjas are back!

With superhuman jumping and reflexes only capable by Spartans!

Even then...

5 staring my HG Trainer Card is stupid.

I can't get far in the Battle Tower without getting Kingler Guillotine swept roflstomped before I can get even close to 100 wins in a row.

So my friends aand I always come up with some funny nicknames for our pokemon and I was just curious on the reason behind you nicknamed your pokemon what it is.

For instance: Some of Mine include
-Grimlock(Krookodile):Inner Transformers fan came out plus he can learn Earthquake and Outrage and that screams Grimlock.

-Soundwave(Seismetoad):He kinda reminded of DOTM soundwave.

-Darwin(Dragonite):Caught a Dratini at level 50 something by the Dragon Tower and I used 2 rare candies to evolve him. Kinda a joke on Darwin's theory of how evolution takes centuries to develop and I did it in 2 minutes.

Has anyone checked out the new Pokemon Conquest game? Thoughts? I'm debating whether I should pick it up...

Eh, she's fine as a brunette. Cynthia no longer being blonde, now that would be a tragedy.

So...wow, retrospect is a ****, huh? I mean, yes, N is in Black 2 and White 2. Then they had to go and do that whole World Tournament thing, so Giovanni really is back. I think Game Freak is reading my posts and using the games to troll me...

I was planning to get Black 2 to contrast my White 1, but I want my shiny Dragonite so I guess I'm getting White 2...

Picked up my copy of W2 today. I'm a little sad to learn that I won't be able to get a Spinarak or a Magmar. If anyone wants to trade, let me know. Also, Genesect is available for download, just in case anyone was unaware.

What happened to this thread? We have an entire new Generation out now and not a single post...

Anyone else interested in exchanging Friend Codes for more Safaris? My FC is 0302-0299-7659; be sure to tell me if you add it, as it won't work without us both inputting each other's codes.

If I had to guess, it's one of a few factors:

1. A lot of people skipped buying a 3DS/are waiting for a later time to buy 3DS
2. People were burned out by Black 2/White 2 and weren't quite ready for a new gen
3. People heard about how ludicrously easy EV training is and got out of the game
4. Unappealing starter Pokemon (AND HOW!)
5.Holy crap Pokemon Origin was DOPE. Old gen forever.


Aside from Pokemon and a few other first party Nintendo games I don't really see any reason to own a 3DS so I haven't jumped onto this gen. I like a lot of the new creatures and would be willing to play through another single player campaign, but I'm in no rush to move on to the 6th gen.

I actually think the new starters are pretty cool looking. I haven't picked it up yet mostly cuz I don't have a 3DS, but my friend is gonna let me borrow his and his version of Y so I can get a taste of what it's like before I drop $200+ on it.

I've plugged about 90 hours so far into X. It's definitely a very nice game visually, and I like it much more compared to BW and BW2.

Point #2, I skipped B/W2 for this reason. One game per gen is really enough.

Point #3, EV training being easier is a good thing, not a reason for people to jump ship. Building a pokemon that took days, only to find out that it doesn't work on your team and having to rebuild it again sucks. The extra EV training tools are a huge step in the right direction for the game.

Point #4, The starters are some of the best starters out of the last couple generations. Froakie with it's hidden ability turns into the best competitive battling starter ever.

It's funny, your last comment about the few number of reasons to own a 3DS is exactly why I DO own a 3DS. I read somewhere once that a head honcho at Nintendo was quoted as seeing "people don't buy a Nintendo to play 3rd party games. They buy a Nintendo to play Nintendo games." I agree with this. There is enough 3rd party support on the other consoles, which I also enjoy. But sometimes I just need a little pokemon or some Mario Kart in my life to brighten my day.

Incidentally, I have about 190 hours logged on Pokemon Y. About 60 of it was the quest. This gen, I really slowed down and took my time with the quest, to enjoy the new tools that are at our disposal. The other 130 hours has been hatching and raising competitive teams. This seems to be a never ending task for me every gen.
