Nintendogs + Pokemon = Pokemon-Amie.

I love it, makes up for the lack of walking Pokemon.

Re: pokemon amie-the new bonding feature

Direct intractability with your pokemon, the creatures the game constantly wants you to befriend and bond with?

Okay, I'll take it. Looks fun.

Re: pokemon amie-the new bonding feature

Love this feature! Looks really awesome. Another way to feel closer to your Pokemon. I want to see the eating animations for pokemon that don't seem to have mouths like Bronzong, Magnezone etc. Looking forward to this.

I really like it. Especially the part where you can copy your Pokemon's facial expression.

It looks really interesting. It'll be nice to be able to interact with your Pokemon~

I honestly hope that using it will be optional. Otherwise... bleh, don't even wanna think about it

Re: pokemon amie-the new bonding feature

The Pokémon-amie feature looks really cute. Finally getting to pet and interact with our Pokémon and it actually having an effect on our battles to some extent. Looks like it it'll be nice if there's no walking feature.

However, is Pikachu going to be the only Pokémon that says it's name while the others just use their in-game cries? That seems a bit unfair, but it is the mascot after all. Not mention that something similar happened in Pokémon Yellow. Anyway that aside, this looks like a cool feature that I'll definitely be using.

Re: pokemon amie-the new bonding feature

Generation 4 had Amity Square, Gen 5 had Musicals and now we've got Pokemon Amie. What do these features all have in common? They're all brand new ways to interact with your Pokemon... and safe to say, I didn't and won't be using any of them. No thanks.

Re: pokemon amie-the new bonding feature

I loved it, especially how they took care of the eating animations or that pokemon can move their whole body. I can't wait to use it >.<

Re: pokemon amie-the new bonding feature

I know for sure I'm gonna love this New Feature. I've always wanted to feed my Pokémon and not only do I get to do that but I also get to play my Pokémon (ahhh I'm going mad over here XD). I think people shouldn't be so negative about this feature besides I think some Pokémon may evolve this way here is a quote from the Official Pokémon Site "The more you play with your Pokémon, the friendlier they will become. Friendly Pokémon may perform better in battle, and maybe other good things will happen, too!" so yeah just a thought.

Re: pokemon amie-the new bonding feature

The "friendly pokémon may perform better in battle" bit is the only thing rubbing me the wrong way about this Pokémon-Amie thing. If petting your pokémon does give it significant stat boosts, then it's pretty much not optional.

Other than that, though, it looks really interesting. It adds a level of reality to your pokémon (Whoa. They eat food that's not solely for battle purposes?), and sort of expands our roles as trainers. And I realize the bond mechanic tied in with this would lose a lot of potency if it had zero effects on battle performance.

Re: pokemon amie-the new bonding feature

I'm actually going to base a lot of my opinion on this on how they handle pokemon without mouths. Feeding a Beldum and having it have the same eating animation as any other pokemon will in my eyes cheapen this feature a lot. It would be nice if they had alternatives. Instead of feeding a Bronzor you instead had to wax it or something.

Gen VI sequel confirmed, Pokemon XXX. Who else is excited for all that rule 34 to join the official canon.

Re: pokemon amie-the new bonding feature

Unlike most of the one-off features presented with each region, I'm actually somewhat intrigued by this. Simply because I've always wanted a minigame or game or something where you can actually take care of your own pokemon. It would be really interesting to see different pokemon act differently by nature and such things, and different species use different kinds of food/wax/other things to help make each species unique.
