Fennekin is just Vulpix minus some tails.  Hopefully it gets more interesting in its evolutions.
When you insult someone by calling them a "pig" or a "dog" you aren't maligning pigs and dogs everywhere.  The same is true of any term used as an insult.

ah I remember back in my days. Of course I was Pokemon yellow generation before I out grew Pokemon and retired. I was the master in my neighborhood and surrounding areas. Mostly specialized in psi Pokemon.


Main Line-up:
Lord Infam(ous)(last three letters didnt fit) - Kadabra
King-Mew Two
Miles-Mr. Mime
Short-Haunter
Quip-Cant remember the type but the one that used hypnosis.



And a few scattered here and there that supplemented the main line up when needed a change and a bunch I acquired as trophies in lose the battle lose the Pokemon battles.

So hey. I'm a Pokemon trainer as well.
My favorite type is fighting (just for the Pokemon that have that type), and my favorite Pokemon is Reuniclus.

(Come to think of it, reminds me of Hammy)
I'll either be picking Fennekin or Chespin, depending on their evoloutions. Froakie could come out of nowhere with its' final evo and become my favorite, but Froakie itself is horrendous.

Prolly Fennekin.  But my boyfriend and my brother like it so I might be tempted to pick one of the other two.  I've never liked the grass-type starters but Chespin is okay.  Maybe Chespin.

Played the Pikachu Edition, but otherwise meh.
The games are just too limited for my liking; but I'm a big fan of Jade Cocoon...catching, training and merging Minions into ungodly forms is a fun that never gets old for me.

The story isn't bad either...although it does get a bit repetitive after the 10th time playing through ;)
I'm bad and that's good.
I'll never be good and that's not bad.
There's no one I'd rather be than me.

...unless I could be Batman, of course. Everybody wants to be Batman.

It's disappointing that even though X and Y are in 3D the game is still grid based.

Out of any disappointments I might ever possibly have with the game, grid-based movement wouldn't even make the list.

If it still uses HMs, I see no reason to play again.
Killing the 2d oldschool JRPG feel kills part of my desire to play again.
The sheer tedium of IV/EVs kills any real thought of playing "seriously."

That said, I found this C&E bait the other day, and am more tempted by that.

Even though it cant last.

HMs are pretty much gone as of Gen 5. Except for surf.

HMs are not gone except for Surf: they're hugely relegated to side exploration, though. TMs were vastly improved in Black/White by becoming reusable.

As a casual player, I'm not concerned about values/natures/anything that involves building for tournament play: that's for the "serious player" to gush over.

The only strictly necessary HMs are Surf and Waterfall in B2W2 if I'm not mistaken (Waterfall might not even be necessary).  Why they both have to be Water-type?  You got me, but they're both actually pretty solid moves. 

On a news related note, there's going to be a Meloetta distribution at Gamestop.  With that one, I can finally bring my national 'dex up to 649, instead of the annoying-but-technically-complete-as-far-as-the-game-is-concerned 648.

hm's have never seemed an issue except for the "only remove at move deleter" part.

also, Corocoro is set to leak in the next week and a half or so. ^_^

i'm putting together an amphibian team to trade in [going with Froakie and he's gonna need slippery slimey support!]

New XY information from CoroCoro revealing a new Eeveelution came out this week: Ninfia (ニンフィア). So far, its type and evolution method hasn't been revealed, but there's rumor going about that this may be the first instance of a new eighteenth Type, the Light type.

If it isn't a new type, I'm betting it's Flying though my second-guess would be Bug.  I'm also thinking it'll be a gender-specific Evolution tied to the new "Bond" system they've mentioned (but given no details on, of course).

We need an eevee of every type already!

And I find it... weird... that they would need a 'light' type. We already have Psychic, and Dark hurts Psychic. I guess Light will hurt Dark...? Then what..

Aaaaah this all hurts my brain.

People have been speculating about a Light type in every new generation since they added Dark in generation 2. It's one of those things that people always speculate about before any real information is released, like the next game letting you go to every region and Flareon being made actually good. It's not going to happen, ever.
