    I'm only not happy with too many "anime stuff" being part of the game canon, :/ strating with pikachu losing his original sound and taking too many load on ingame extras like these cosplay etc being only for it ... I bet my " satoshi's pikachu" I got later on Platinum/ SS on an online event aren't going to get a hat if transfered to sun moon, right?:B
    And they haven't updated the logo with my versions :c

    Well I want to know if I can translate it already XD

    For all you know, Pikachu was named because of the cry.
    Plus, I'm just happy that the other Pokemon don't follow their anime cry XD
    (Though, I think the anime, at least japan side, is cutting down a lot on Pokemon saying their only name)

    You are wrong, the games come far first than the anime, the name was mad elike all the other pokemon had for the game, but becaus ethe anime, the localziation haven't changed pikachu's name and keep the original dub
    remind that pokemon red and green come out in japan in 96, the anime in 97.Western red and blue only in 98, the anime was there already so they came with both at time because marketing

    the pokémon anime is (was? :/ ) just a filler!!!

    Electrium Z is given to you in the demo so it isn't a leak.

    The demo accidentally had the full dex last night. Several sites are already posting the full thing. Legendary pre-evos, nearly every g1 pokemon getting aloha forms and the new dex apparently allows you to see any moves a caught pokemon can learn

    Lol chill.

    I know the games came first, and that was in a time of major technical difficulties...

    I'm just saying if it was a real life scenario, something could be named based on the noises they make.
    Like many foreign languages and how they originally named "cats" in their language, for example. (its usually based on meowing sounds).

    Anime isn't a filler, it is more of a way to draw in popularity to the franchise.
    Game's can't be released every week, you know.

    Games and anime will spin off to various toys, merchandise, movies, money making opportunities.

    I know, we have a bird here named " Arara" xD but it's not like the pikachu, that like each other pokemon had its original sound (only used the anime way in special/anime-based games ) and for no reason got it changed in gen 6! I don't know if pichu and raichu got " dubbed" like in the anime as well, but if not, this make even less sense xp

    so, it's a filler xD It's ha dnothing to do with the games more than be based and call attention ...

    I love almost all of those new sprites. Wimpods evolved form looks crazy. Pretty excited now.

    See, as much as we want to split the anime away from the game, it's both part of the Pokemon Company.
    It is both money making tools for them.

    Furthermore, sadly, the gap between anime and games are shrinking.
    Anime series are timed to follow game releases. Games even reference anime occurances nowadays (Steven's Metagross, Alain's appearance with Steven etc etc).

    At least only Pikachu got changed.
    I think if every Pokemon got changed I'll go crazy too (sheer madness)

    That's not a fire/fight right?
    Please no more fighter starters, Nintendo.
