    I CAN'T SURVIVE WITHOUT MY ALAKAZAM! Unless they implement some other insanely fast high special attack Psychic Pokemon.

    I guess they wanted to stop the classical:

    1-Start the game, choose the starter, play through. the first gym.

    2-Arrived at second city go to pokemon center and exchange some crappy pkm with your own pkm from older games and have fun.

    Good. A main story with a completely fresh slate should be interesting. We haven't had a game with entirely new Pokemon pre-elite four since Gen 1.

    Noooooo! Now I can't use my level 50 Luxray to pwn everyone. My plan was destroyed!

    Seriously though, it'll be nice to have that surprise factor I had with my first Pokemon game.

    I usually use new ones anyways. But I wonder if it's still easy to just use the starter to beat everything.

    Well, Sinnoh's PokéDex didn't include a lot of Pokémon from previous gens either IIRC, so this shouldn't be very different. At least I never use any Pokémon from previous gens to play through the game, I only use the regional Pokémon (well, at least until I beat the Elite Four and get the National Dex).

    They should have done this with every pokemon game, starting fresh is WAY more fun than geting to a point where you can trade and snatching your old pokemon. I hope the new pokemoon aren't all retarded -_- I'm mean seriously some of them......why would anyone want to catch them (no I'm not a hardcore player yes I'm a shallow player I go for pokemon via looks/favouritism) hopefully I can find some awesome pokemon in the new bunch, I don't want to have to eventually resort to old pokemon.

    Through typing this I came up with an idea which would be an interesting addition to pokemon, migration (y'know like birds in winter migrate to warmer climates) having that system would make catchin some possibly elusive pokemon more interesting.

    Well, I never import Pokemon from game to game, but usually there's a Pokemon that keeps popping up in almost every game. Like Abra. He's always there. I always catch him, train him, make him a big badass Alakazam, and go "WHOOSH PSYCHIC" and beat the living shit out of anything that doesn't have a resistance to Psychic.

    Although I do think this decision should be a good one provided the new Pokemon don't suck. If they're actually pretty good and diverse enough you can make some very interesting teams and new Pokemon can have a chance to breathe in terms of competitive play.

    My thoughts exactly.

    Let the new pokemon shine for a bit before replacing them with your favorites from the first games. : )

    They'll probably have a new pyschic chracter that's fast and has low defense just saying.

    If they're going to make a Dex of all new Pokemon, they have no choice but to make the new Pokemon viable in combat.

    Uh oh, this sucks since Pokemon started to look gay and cheesy after Gold/Silver (some of R/S/E were alright).

    Learn how to use new Pokemon. It could be a nice challenge.

    Oh no, no more Zubats and Geodudes that seem to solely populate most caves.
    They'll probably just make some similar Pokemon to them and stick them in caves instead.

    It might be good - the sense of discovery should be back. I agree. But, if all of the pokémon are bidoofs, you know...

    Hopefully, the new pokemon will be cool.
