New Pokémon in motion – Battle animations

May 16, 2010

Pokemon Sunday revealed the first footage of how the Pokemon are appearing in the new game´s battle-mode. Instead of still sprites, there seem to be several ways for each Pokemon to move, as well as an idle-animation. Besides the new monster Zoruark, you can see Raikou as well as the three starter Pokemon, Tsutaja, Pokabu and Mijumaru.

Personally, I´m very disappointed at how sterile and non-dynamic the combat still looks. Then again, it IS an improvement over previous installments of the series. At least the upcoming Pokemon-movie looks good.
