I hope to god there are no more new pokemon. Being a traditional RBY Pokemon Player, it really throws me off when a trainer pulls out some random pokemon and I'm like "WHAT THE HELL IS HIS TYPE DAMNIT" and procede to get nearly pwned by this pokemon because I'm at a type disadvantage.
Very nice, if there are new areas then it may actually be worth playing through it. Though the time difference between the Jap release and the US release will probably force me into playing the Japanese version.
^ That's why I could never get far into LGPE; now *that's* "too different", with so many changed and removed mechanics and species and moves that it felt so fundamentally anti-progress, not fun at all.
