Last time we posted about Pokemon Park Wii: Pikachu's Great Adventure, there was some confusion about if the game would come to retail or a be WiiWare title. If it was a WiiWare title, then the game's 1st gen-Gamecube quality graphics would be understandable. If it was was a retail game, then yeah, it should probably look better different. Though it's sometimes easy to forget, the Wii is technically more powerful than the Gamecube, and Pokemon is one of Nintendo's most important and successful franchises. The last Pokemon game on the Wii didn't look amazing, but it definitely seemed more visually polished than Pokemon Park Wii: Pikachu's Great Adventure.

If the game is fun, then yeah, I'll buy it. Portions of No More Heroes looked no better than Shenmue did on the Dreamcast, but that didn't stop NMH from becoming one of my favorite games ever made. Still, one has to wonder why Nintendo treats their console Pokemon games like red-headed stepchildren .

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
