Wholly arceus! Is nintendo TRYING to give us heart attacks from all this glorious news at one time!?
I'm a little confused as to why you'd only have 1 Pokémon? Is it basically, that you...oh. Oh, I see. You've only ever really gotten to use one at a time, so they just come at you bro. That's not very nice of them, it has to be said!

Multiple languages in one game feels like the future to me! This is probably why they're able to create a worldwide release. I think it's very smart.

Being able to import Pokémon from my DS carts, well...it just makes me happy thinking about it! I have so many Pokémon that I was never able to transfer. It will be awesome to use them again. To pet them through Pokémon-Amie!

And we can ride Rhyhorns if we want. It's like icing on the cake.

This is just great. Nintendo really wants this title to be a reboot of the series. With all these changes I think that it will happen. I am overly excited for all of this.
