Ruby and Sapphire remakes feature powered up 'Primal' legendaries

I liked Pokemon X/Y, but I wasn't crazy about Mega Evolutions, most of which followed the design principle of "more muscles/horns/whatever means stronger and better." They're just a little tacky.

Pokemon always did pretty well to avoid rehashing and mindless stakes raising (even if it resulted in key Pokemon), but now the Ruby and Sapphire remakes feature stronger, 'Primal' versions of Kyogre and Groudon and it's sort of bothering me. Maybe I'm just being old and cranky.

I wonder if any other monsters are going to get Primal Reversion states wherein they double in size and glow for no reason. I mean, Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire are already on the Mega Evolution train, so maybe it's limited to legendaries.

All of Pokemon Ruby/Sapphire's gym leaders have giant eyes now

The one thing that irked me about Pokemon X and Y was the 2D art, which seemed to shy away from the series' trademark look to a more homogenized anime blob style. Brawly's re-design has to b the worst. He wears those creepy toe shoes.  Compare for yourself below.more

I'm pumped to dress up Pikachu like a little fancy man

One of my favorite parts of Pokémon Black & White was the ability to haze your magical pets by dressing them up and having them perform musical theatre, so putting Pikachu in drag in Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby sounds awesome to me. If you want to watch the full Pokémon trailer in all its awkwardly-paced Nintendo-approved sterile family-friendly glory, here it is.more
