I've never drawn starters before the release of a game before, and given I've been in a drawing mood I simply had to change this trend.
I'm totally going for Chespin. It was actually a toss-up between it and Fennekin, but I've never actually chosen a grass type as my main starter before and the little chestnut otter/mole was awesome and so Chespin will be my starter.
Even though he's shoving the others down here he gets the least exposure in the layout, oops. XD

I'm in the same boat as Brooke -- not getting a 3DS just for this game XD (and Ace Attorney. And Prof. Layton...) The 3D effect hurts my eyes and sometimes gives me a lingering headache for the rest of the day x_x (Yeah, you can take it off the games...>_>) However, I usually go for the grass starters but the water starter is my fave here <3 Tepig was my starter in Black/White. ♥
In terms of games that are cross platform, its a waste of money. The remakes are pretty wasteful too (that being said I own Tales of the Abyss and Ocarina of Time, but I play them both in 3D). But the new games are fun just as games, and it doesn't hurt to keep the 3D off on them, really. XDD
Froakie fan! Excellent, it's really underappreciated. XD I like the two biggies, and Chespin won partially because I've /never/ chosen the grass starter. XD
This is the second Pokémon game where I didn't really feel "attracted" to the grass starter, if that makes sense But Chespin is cuter than Snivy, so xD I kinda want to know their evolutions now!
I think if the remakes bring something new to plot or a different 'ending'/interpretation so to say --rather than just updated art and graphics-- I'd give any game a whirl. Having said that, I still haven't been able to play White2 for lack of time XD So hopefully it'll be like that. Otherwise I'll be slightly annoyed. Just slightly, since I got it cheap
I did try the 3DS out once when the 3DS came out with Street Fighter (what the store had) and took off the 3D so I know it does look fine at least.
I just checked out the trailer-- man, for the first time in years I am just not psyched about this release. I really hate that they upgraded the 2D battles to 3D. I always liked the standard battle format, and I thought they were perfected in the last game where the critters all move around and such.
I do like the starters and legendaries, though. I would have a hard time choosing a starter pokemon... but oh, I do not want a 3DS. I still haven't played the sequel to Black and White...
I'm not 100% psyched on the move away from pixels either, but I think it'll work out. I'm actually looking forward to the new battles given how nice they were in games like Revolution. I'm /really/ hoping we can customize our trainers with the upgrade. I've been playing Harvest Moon: A New Beginning and I think they'll probably be okay with the graphics change.
It's not like you need to use 3D on a 3DS, thankfully. I like to use it in most games, but I turn it off for my Harvest Moon game. I don't know if it'll be off for XY or not, I do it on a game by game basis.
But I'm going to be a little miffed if there is no trainer customization. I could get why not with pixels, but they seriously have no excuse at this point. :I
I wouldn't mind if they did a full upgrade to Wii U or something and had really nice graphics, but I've seen what the 3DS can do and, uh... I'm not overly impressed with its graphics, which I don't think are much of an improvement over the DS, except WOoOOOOooh 3D wOOOoooh... Well, I take that back. I liked Pokemon because it was easy on the eyes, simple, and a great travel companion.
I know you can turn the 3D off, but then it's just a regular DS game. At least, the games I have played were that way. I think the PS vs Vita improvements are pretty huge (I still don't want a Vita yet, though) but for the 3DS they only got slightly better, not really enough to make me want to buy one.
YEAH, if they want to make changes a customizable trainer is the way to go. At least it's not like when I was playing the very first game a million years ago... all you could customize was your name. You couldn't even be a girl, and if your name was too long, oh well! From what I can tell, though, it's the same old game but with fancier graphics. IF they are going to make drastic changes to the graphic look, for the love of goodness gracious let the trainers be able to choose their hairstyles, clothing, etc, and maybe even let the pokemon wear some outfits. I'd love to customize my pokemon. I think I'd be able to get psyched for the new game if it had changes like that-- that is the one advantage computer graphics have over 2D graphics; customization.
I've always found trailers to be either horribly misleading in one direction or another (if it's for the PS3 or PC, horribly misleading by showing graphics way better. X-Box is a toss-up, anything else tends to actually have /better/ graphics than the ads indicate).
I know that the 3DS can almost perfectly (we're talking 99% here) emulate the graphical quality of a mid to late PS2 game. As a fan of Tales of the Abyss, this is from experience. I really think it's going to be okay. I kind of hope you cave and buy one for Pokemon. XD The 3DS is leaning pretty heavily on the WooOoOoo 3D WoOOOoo remake crutch, but I'm seeing that change as of late last year. The new Harvest Moon game is great, and Pokemon will do nothing but help.
I'm honestly waiting for the shitstorm over the graphical change, though... XD I haven't seen people flipping tables yet and every new gen brings table flipping.
