It’s only six months or so until Pokemon X & Y come out, and there is still not much known about what they will contain. Many fans have been conducting wish lists, so I figured I would make a wish list of my own. I figure I’ll make it easy and have it be two options within five categories: New Pokemon, New Abilities, New Moves, New Items, and New Mechanics. Without much ado, here are ten things I would like to see in Gen VI (and most likely won’t see at all).
It’s only six months roughly until Pokemon X and Y are released. Information is slow to come out, and as a result there is a ton of speculation regarding what these new games will contain. While I don’t claim to know which rumors are accurate, I figure now is a good time to lay out some of the more common or more interesting rumors and speculation and give some odds on the probability of them happening.

TheSpeedGamers will be starting their first charity for the year: MegaMan. If you aren’t familiar with their work, they are a group that plays video games and raises money for charity. For their Mega Man Marathon they’ll be working on raising money for Rockin H’ Ranch. But there is much more to it than that. They usually have competitions to win prizes, and perform a variety of zany antics to keep things interesting.
There is an old saying that goes something along the lines of “the whole is more than the sum of its parts.” In many AMVs this is true: the combination of footage and music brings together a new piece of art that is stronger than either one alone. While I can think of many examples of such, one that more immediately comes to mind is Oro$hi’s “Hello World”. If you haven’t seen it already, please do so:
I generally enjoy watching good series. So much that I have an informal system where I look at series I am interested in watching, and sort them into a “good pile” and a “crap pile.” Most of the time I will watch from the good pile, but occasionally I just get the urge to watch series that I previously dismissed as being garbage. Are they actually garbage? Maybe I was too harsh on the series without watching it. Today will be an exploration of a series that was in my garbage pile. Today I will review Infinite Stratos.
Every Christmas parents across the globe have a question to ponder: What cute little pet should we give little Tommy and Angelica? Should we give them a sweet puppy, or maybe a bit of a spicy kitty? While we won’t be directly answering that question, we will be answering a similar question just in time for Christmas: which anime series is better: Cat Planet Cuties (Asobi ni Iku yo!) or is it season one of Dog Days? In order to decide, we shall judge each show on five metrics: Story, Characters, Concept, Animation, and Overall.
Also congratulations to Desert Bus 6 on raising over $440,000 this year and for raising over $1 million lifetime. It was an awesome ride this year and each driver added something new to the party. Here’s to hoping that next year is something ever more spectacular.
Enough of the “Site Status”. Enough of the goals. Updates will come when they do. Here is what I have *plans* of doing however:
1) New anime are coming out. Maybe I’ll do some initial reviews of them.
2) Utawarerumono and Cat Planet Cutie reviews
3) Other random stuff that seems awesome in my head but most likely won’t get done
And this will be the last time I ever tell you what I’m planning unless it’s ready to be posted. Although I might be lying on that last point.
