If you are around my age, then you grew up when Pokemon began its rise in popularity here in the United States. For me, Pokemon captured me with its simplistic RPG elements and “gotta catch ’em all” mantra that make a completionist’s wet dream. Yesterday, Nintendo announced the first set of games (since they always release in twos) developed for the 3DS.
Pokemon X and Pokemon Y brings a brand new generation of Pokemon to an updated platform. For the first time, in a long time, Pokemon looks different from anything that I remember. They will finally show Pokemon use their attack animations in full 3D.
What else can I say? They hooked me into Pokemon again.
