Look at that. That is Pokémon for Game Boy Advance! Doesn't it look lovely? I know you're looking at it now, possibly a bit disappointed that it doesn't look that good. It'll grow on you. Trust me, I found this last night (at time of writing) and didn't like 'em, now I think it looks great! On the bright side of things, these somewhat lower niceness graphics could mean they can fit a lot more data on a cartridge... such as the 386 Pokémon, a massive world and lovely battle scenes. Let's hope.
Interesting things to note in the top picture:
- Shadow in the water
- What appears to be the trainer going up a mountain via a series of bridges. Perhaps a waterfall is further up?
- The cool trainer, with the hair of a fifty year old.
- Realistic looking water.
- Shadows on all objects aswell.
- The stairs do not look quite right...
Look! A lovely beach scene. This reminds me of the top of Cianwood City because of the rocksmash boulders and the chunk of mountain. This screens a little bit boring I suppose but look at those little footprints! The water is of a different type also.
Interesting things to notice:
- The boulders
- The water
- The beach
- The chunk of rock/outside of a cave
This shot isn't really as thrilling.
This is familiar territory. This to me, looks like a cross between the Pokémon Gold and Silver we all love, and the Zelda Oracle games, also for Game Boy Color.
Things to notice:
- The little guy has a reflection!
- He can walk through water!
- The waves spreading out behind him! Talk about detail!
- Those flowers, they must be something significant because they are more prominent than the little 3 frame animated ones that were tiny is the chromatics and metallics.
- The trees look more alive!
- Those little bushes look remarkably like those things in Zelda that you can't pass without a sword, and have rupees and hearts underneath. It begs the question: can the little trainer guy walk over them?
- At the top right is the standard watery bit with a bit more colour. Can't someone please draw a bottom for them!
- Here's some food for thought: Are the puddles of water that the trainer can walk in there because it has rained recently in the game? Would this mean the introduction of a weather system? I hope so!
