They won't show the new Pokemon yet. I'm speculating that the home town pic is that the player hasn't got any Pokemon yet, and that the screenies in the Pokecenter and in the cave might mean that the trainer is with a legendary Pokemon.

But it would be a stupid move if they don't include Pokemon following you and other things like the Pokeathlon and the usage of Pokewalker...

1) It doesn't really look 3D.
2) I thought the DS was supposed to get a major graphics overhaul. This doesn't look very impressive to me.
3) They wouldn't release screens of a game before a screen of the console was released first.

I think this isn't going to be a 3DS title, to be honest.

as cool as it looks this is EXTREMELY slow progress in pokemon games on the DS from nintendo. i bet you guys anything that they could've implemented full 3D graphics on pokemon diamond and pearl just like Kingdom Hearts DS had. what a load of shit. my hopes arent high for the 3DS either. im just very curious 2 see how these 2 huge announcements will turn out. what i hate is that nintendo even announced it so early! way to make everyone anxious and wait impatiently... -.-

Do you know what you're saying?

That's 493 different Pokemon (not including the 5th generation) they'd have to make models for and we're not even talking about animations. I'd like a true 3D Pokemon game but it's absurd to think Nintendo would go out of their way to translate Pokemon into full fledged 3D on the DS.

Let's not even talk about towns,caves and all that stuff.

I don't like the way the new characters look (and it's not even out yet).

I do like the camera angles (They listened to the fans this time!).

Holy shit, 3D-ish battlefield!

Cars? Maybe Mew is under one of the trucks...

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes so i think i made the right choice
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    there was also a sony with worse local dimming and the glow was really apparent
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is non linear anyway. 100 nits is about 50% of the peak output of a 10,000 nit display.

    "very dark scenes are more common than very bright scenes" not in the games i play
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    really have to buy the top end model to get a tv that doesnt have any of those compromises and that would've had more dimming zones too but i am not made o money

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    @Julie_Pilgrim "very bright" is essentially pure white
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    pure white doesn't show up all that much it's mainly when looking at a bright sky
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    and if the clouds in the sky have slightly less definition to them because i turned on the contrast enhancer who cares
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    that's not important
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    i can't tell the difference
    Gift
  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    but i can certainly tell the difference with black crush if i'm watching a scifi movie and i can't see wtf is going on

  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Human vision is logarithmic, it's not linear. And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness. OLED'S look brighter then LCD's even when both are set to the same nit values because of the higher contrast ratio on OLED's
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's have a 3D look

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Charging port is more likely to fry up or battery fail before the display tbh lol

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "And nits doesn't tell the whole story of perceived brightness" it's not about perceived brightness it's about all HDR content in TV and movies being mastered for 1000 nits so it doesn't look right with anything lower, it's also about dynamic range

  • The Real Jdbye @ The Real Jdbye:
    "OLED's have a 3D look" no they don't lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    As an owner of a OLED and you saying that you never seen an OLED I think I know what I'm talking about lol. I'm not talking about 3D as in 3D glasses. I'm talking about depth and pop in the picture

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    I mean to be fair og vitas are still kicking and not many have suffered from pixel bleed and they're going on nearly 10 years
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    OLED's can get away with a lower peak brightness and still provide punchy HDR because of their contrast ratio. Like I said human vision is logarithmic. The higher the peak brightness the diminishing returns in perceived brightness.

  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Just get 5 years enjoyment out of it until Nintendy releases something and everyone forgets about switch games lol
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    @The Real Jdbye Oleds hit around 750 nits nowadays. The difference between a 1000 nit and a 750 nit isn't huge. It's only about a 4% increase in perceived brightness. Not huge at all. You'll need at least 2000 nit displays to notice a bigger difference.
    Gift
  • SG854 @ SG854:
    Read this thread it explains it. 1000 nits is not a huge jump from 750 the LG OLEDs can hit. As I said human vision is non linear.
