Tomorrow just may be the greatest day of my life, next to that time I found half a complete wedding cake sitting in a bin one hot summer day. Pokémon X and Y is finally out tomorrow, and it’s bringing with a new 3D perspective. It took a lot of time and effort to make that game. In fact, each Pokémon needed around 3-6 months to be rendered in all those 3D pixels.

Speaking to VG247, Game Freak Director Junichi Masuda explained how his team of graphic designers spent months designing and balancing the various Pokémon in the game.

“We have a team of 20 different graphic designers who are responsible for coming up with the Pokémon design themselves, and then there’s a team of five people who actually judge the designs, and are responsible for deciding which Pokémon go into the final games,” Masuda said.

Then they consider what goes into making a Pokémon, their various aspects, but they look very deeply at the characters to see where we think a Pokémon would live, what kind of things it would eat, and what characteristics are very particular about the Pokémon.

It’s not just about the design, as a lot of thought goes into creating each individual Pokémon. On any particular, individual Pokémon the process to creating it can be anywhere between three months, and in the longest cases up to half a year.

When it comes to how we maintain the balance in the game and knowing what features to include, we always consider very carefully who is actually playing the games. Is it girls or boys, adults or children? When we consider who is playing the game, we make decision as to which features to include and how to maintain the overall balance of the game so it’s appealing.

Pokemon X and Y is finally out tomorrow. If I could, I’d buy both copies because of some of the boss new monster designs. But I’m going for the Y version. Because reasons.

    I think Lazygamer needs to run a competition to win a 3DS with a copy of X or Y. Yes. i think that is a good idea. Also the only person who may enter will have to be me. Double great idea!

      Seconded. Except for that last part. We need at least two people who can enter. You. And me. And probably make two DS’s available for the winner(s)

          I’ll throw in my entry just to make it seem more like a competition.
          Even though I probably won’t make it into the top 10 of the 4 people who entered.

    Fuck you all, traitor criminals Game Freak, from Masuda to Tajiri and BAD company. You’re going to fall forever for betraying your own Pokémon and your own fans and former fans. You never will be any fans’ idols again, motherfucking tricksting Japanese assholes. Prepare to die for your eternal treason. *chops Game Freak’s heads off and detonates their HQ*
