YES OUR PRAYERS WERE ANSWERED!

Now we just need to hope for a good story, with nothing in common with the wiiware games, and no Free to Play model.

EDIT: Japanese title is "Pokemon Mystery Dungeon ULTRA" it seems. Can't find any info on if it's a F2P or a retail game.

Hell yeah I would be wondering when the Gen VI Mystery Dungeon would be announced. It was inevitable, we've had one for every gen since III. In response to the comment above me, the phrase "sweeping tale of adventure and mystery" implies that it's an adventure game (story based), and the fact that it's announced to "retail" in North America by the end of 2015 suggests that unlike the recent Pokémon Shuffle and Pokémon Rumble World it will not be a free-to-play title (and will likely be available both in physical and download copies). Can't wait for more dungeon crawling and Pokémon soap opera drama. This announcement mmd. Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon, I await your arrival! Hopefully they let you pick your character's Pokémon again, that was so helpful.

Aw I thought the personality quiz at the beginning was cute in the first two games.

I didn't play Gates to Infinity because I heard bad things about it, but if this one comes out okay (i.e., having all the Pokemon in it) then I'll probably pick it up for old time's sake.

You should play GtI. Lots of people bash it, but it's still a good game. Most compare it to EoS, which is why everyone gets annoyed about it. I had fun with it though.  :)
Title: Re: POKÉMON SUPER MYSTERY DUNGEON
Post by: Latios212 on May 21, 2015, 04:52:17 PM
Yeah, it looks likely to be a complete traditional PMD game ^.^

I do hope they bring the personality quiz back lol. GtI wasn't bad, it just didn't have a lot of aspects I loved about the first two.

Also the words "Mystery Dungeon" in the logo returned to how they looked in the first two titles. Hmm.....

Ohhhh yeah that'd be great but 3D models do take a ridiculous amount of data, especially since they used the Pokédex 3D Pro ones. XY/ORAS got around it by using cel-shading, so maybe if they use the new models they'll be able to include more Pokémon.

I think this just cured my cold. And everything else.

I hope no one thought I was getting assaulted in the last 10 minutes (well, I was [by my unfettered hype-spasms]).

I really hope they keep the composition team from last time. Maybe bring back Arata Iiyoshi for old times sake (they revived the old MYSTERY DUNGEON typesetting btw), but dang, Keisuke Ito and Yasuhiro Kawagoe made one of heck of a combo.

There was a 3-year gap between Rescue Team and Explorers, 5 years between Explorers and Gates (3 if you count Sky), and now it looks like PSMD will be 3 years since Gates. Not bad.
(Though in Bespin time it felt awfully fast - more like 1 year!)

I love seeing the internet in upheaval. Only confirms my theory that people will judge this game by Explorers and Gates [judging from several comments on the linked sites]. I always saw Gates as the spiritual successor to Rescue Team, so maybe PSMD will be more Explorers-like.

I'm truly surprised honestly. I really thought PMD was finished, seeing as the Iwata Ask interview revealed that the developers of Gates truly believed Gates was the ULTIMATE Pokémon Mystery Dungeon (and I could see why!). If that, their labor of love, didn't pan out well in the fans eyes, what then?

But I'm happy. I really am. I got the game I always wanted in the last, so I was ready to accept a bittersweet ending, but this is indeed a bright future. And who knows? Maybe this will end up being the means to really put the PMD series in the popular spotlight again, and newcomers might be interested in discovering the past installments. What a great cycle.

It would make for a great time to rerelease PMD RRT-EOS on the Wii U Virtual Console to introduce new players to the series. They did it for ORAS with Pokemon TCG, Pinball RSE and Puzzle Challenge!

 I'm sick of seeing people immediately dismiss GTI for being too different from explorers due to silly nitpicks, even though they likely don't realize how bad the Wiiware games were in comparison. Maybe it's because I despise Explorers but then again I can't really say that's the reason since these same people seem to act as if Rescue Team never existed either...

Now I just hope people will give this new game a chance. Maybe take the nostalgia goggles off for explorers and give the new game a shot with an open mind. Or if that isn't their cup of tea, they could just grab Ys I-II off of the Wii Virtual Console or Lufia the Legend Returns off of the 3DS Virtual Console for a similar experience.

Post by: Bespinben on May 21, 2015, 08:41:51 PM
Nintendo could really do better with advertising though. Instead of leading us on with generic statements of random dungeon generation as evidenced in the title, why not actually try something hypeworthy?

Once again, a human is transformed into a Pokemon . . . Once again an inseparable friendship is forged . . . Once again, a grand adventure awaits! Welcome (back) to the world of Pokemon!


Make it epic. Make it a grand tale. Make it Explorers.

The hype is pretty real right now. I just need more info, dammit. I really hope this game is good.
Inorite!? There's just nothing to do right but sit and wait XD I think Game Freak does their homework well though. The subtle references in Gates shows that. They'll know what to fix.

What do you think the acronyms for the game will be? I mean there's the obvious:
...but that sounds too much like PTSD. I've seen some cool ones though like:
(sounds epic like Super Metroid ;) )

I guess this means I'll have to stop calling Gates to Infinity as PMD3DS, seeing as there would now be two games that could fall under that title. Unless:

Title: Re: POKÉMON SUPER MYSTERY DUNGEON

I was just gonna stick to calling it Super PMD. Though a better name definitely could've been used.

One PMD to rule them all, One PMD to find them,
One PMD to bring them all and in the dungeons bind them
In the Land of Post Town where the Forest of Shadows lie.


Obvious rant is obvious: Why are the Japanese logos for things always so much better designed?

Speaking of the Japanese logo it roughly translates to Pokemon Mystery Dungeon ULTRA from what I can tell. That seems to be a better name IMO. Makes it seem like the ultimate game.

I do have a bad feeling I'll get too hyped and expect dumb and crazy things like voice acting, cutscenes and redbook audio, thanks to Ys being stuck in my head lately. Still, I hope they can pull through with the story while making it more accessible to those who liked Explorers/RRT.

Ironically I had a formal letter made for Spike Chunsoft I was going to mail to them after I beat GTI back in 2013 when it launched but I never sent it since I couldn't read Japanese addresses. I can now that I've taken Japanese so maybe I'll send it anyway?

I don't know about you guys, but if giant meteors, collapse of space-time continuum, and the incarnation of evil itself haven't already set that precedent, this game is sure claiming to be SOMETHING.

Hmm really? The Japanese Pokémon official site has it indexed as "cho dungeon" in the URL, which I guess often is rendered as "super"? You'd know more Japanese than me of course.

Give in to the hype! I nearly punched a hole in my bed. (Though I missed out on the hype train during GtI, so maybe I'm just desperate to finally get to ride it again).

I'm no Japanese master or anything but I believe that's what it roughly translates to. "Cho" could also possibly be short for "Chotto" which means "A Little", so I hope this game isn't one of those shorter experiences we've been getting lately. Either that or it could mean something I haven't learned yet.

And Crisis in a tale of unprecedented scale? Darn you TPCI stop making me think it's going to have a deep and epic story like Ys IV or Lufia II, since I know you guys wouldn't allow blood or death or questionable female antagonists (Then again GTI had one, along with the infamous Kyurem scene, but you never know)

Speaking of which I also have a feeling that people will make jokes about it being a new SNES game, since back then they loved putting Super on every name for that system and now it returns for the NA/EU versions.

I don't really care what they call it, as long as they deliver on the story! That said, the title gives away even less than the previous ones, so we'll be speculating for a while [emoji14]

Following the past three, I'm guessing a gen 6 legendary or two will be a large part of the story.

My day has been made.

Those Japanese links don't have too much information, although while the English thing just uses the word "crisis", the Japanese one uses "星の危機"...
Japan's getting it in autumn, so I'd love to have a sneak peek of it then.

I'm hoping for something involving Yveltal, since it seems like a pretty good candidate for a plot thing.

Hoping for a more varied mix of Pokémon, too. And hoping for a difficulty ramp-up.

Explorers had a lot of good features, like being able to recruit easily with no need to bust bank on friend areas, but I liked being able to switch leaders/party mid-dungeon like you could in Rescue Team.

*Lots of mythical lore (Ninetales Legend, Time Gear, Voice of Life -- that type of stuff.)
*Incorporate new 6th Gen mechanics to facilitate plot (mega evolution just screams that)
*I would love to have a large open world. The Friend Areas helped, and so did Pokémon Paradise, but I'd really like to actually travel to dungeons and have it take time to get there. The "outside-dungeon" mechanic from GtI could be altered to make traveling dangerous (road bandits, hunger, etc.)


This just in, a new Amiibo model!

What about a new app in the style of the Pokédex ones, but amiibo let you get more information or special things about whatever Pokémon amiibo you have?

I liked being able to switch leaders/party mid-dungeon like you could in Rescue Team.
That was a lot of fun! (And it would save me when my leader was getting wrecked...)

*Lots of mythical lore (Ninetales Legend, Time Gear, Voice of Life -- that type of stuff.)
*Incorporate new 6th Gen mechanics to facilitate plot (mega evolution just screams that)
*I would love to have a large open world. The Friend Areas helped, and so did Pokémon Paradise, but I'd really like to actually travel to dungeons and have it take time to get there. The "outside-dungeon" mechanic from GtI could be altered to make traveling dangerous (road bandits, hunger, etc.)
I loved the mythical story elements in all three games. I really enjoyed the element of discovery in all three games - you're literally dropped into a world with NO CLUE what's going on and you have to slowly piece together what mythical elements drive the story. And you can't predict the story based on past titles, so the real you is just as clueless as the in-game you, which makes the story really immersive.

Mega evolution would be cool (but how would it work???)

That open-world idea is wonderful. It felt a little strange to me how just about every dungeon is accessible by taking a step or two beyond the edge of the screen, and taking time to get to places I believe would make it more enjoyable. (Think Comet Observatory vs. Starship Mario.) This would also help to make the dungeons more memorable - I found it difficult to recall names and story locations in GTI. (Also Zero Isle - cool name, great challenge, but what's that place really about?)

Also, keep it up with these Amiibos.... they're fun to look at :P

Post by: TheDreamingHawk on May 23, 2015, 06:16:34 PM
What features do you most want to see return? (From Rescue Team, Explorers, or GTI)?

For me, lots of things. This will be long, so for things that should return...

Rescue Team

-TM/HM Hunting. As odd as this may seem, it would be neat to go and actually put effort into finding HMs in order to advance the post game plot, as long as they aren't too hard to find.

-Link moves. I really miss these but they helped me so much in this game I need them back. So many cool combinations

-Smart NPCs. In my opinion, RRT/BRT had a great cast of characters. They all were worried about the coming danger, and none of them were sure who to believe or how to stop it, but eventually you learn fun details about them if you wish, such as the Snubbull that didn't like evolving, Caterpie having faith in you, ETC. They felt more "real" to me, and while GTI did bring that back for the story characters, the ones that didn't do much in the actual story had barely any personality to them at all. Yeah I could learn that Emolga and Virizion are a couple now, but I want to see what that Ducklett was up to, what his story was, and why he came to the town, if you know what I mean.

Explorers

-Eggs. I liked collecting these and it made completing difficult missions much more satisfying, though the randomness of getting the eggs made it a bit cheap, I think they could improve it in PSMD.

-Special Episodes. If we get a great cast of NPCs in PSMD, we might as well learn about them, right? I think it would be a great chance to bring these back, especially if we had more memorable characters this time around. (IMO the only special episodes worth playing were 1, 4 and 5.)

-Multiple Jobs at once. This is self explanatory.

-99 Floor Dungeons. Yes, these were in GTI but there were very few of them and only one (Strongest Trail, the DLC dungeon) allowed you to keep your current level as you fought hordes of dangerous enemies at your own skill level, and even then it was sixty floors long. I think bringing back the post game challenge would be a treat for hardcore fans like me.

-Direct Travel to Dungeons. I found it amazing that you could literally go from the town to right in front of the Beach Cave without selecting it from a boring menu. PMD would benefit greatly from this if they expand on this concept.

-Wi-Fi rescues. Self explanatory.

Gates to Infinity

-Team Attack. Was very helpful and took care of those pesky monster houses. Would be neat to see return.

-Pokemon choice selection. The personality test was only a pointless gimmick, this way you can choose the one you want without looking at a guide. They could also make the test optional for those who love it.

-Move Levels. Encouraged you to keep your strongest moves in your moveset without constantly rotating them. However it did lead to some overpowered team members if you leveled it up too much... I'm looking at you Keldeo.

-Legendary "Battle Rooms". I loved these as the entire focus was a fierce fight against the boss, and it truly felt epic to me. It would be great to have this come back.

-Genders. Yes, this was in GTI but only in the Japanese version for some odd reason. It didn't change much in the gameplay but I think I'm not the only one who believed it was silly that every pokemon in the US version was genderless even if the story said otherwise. It also would help fix broken moves that were supposed to only hit the opposite gender.


Those were things I think they should bring back from the older titles, but what about new features? Well... Here's my wishlist.

NEW features

-Voice acting. Spike Chunsoft's visual novels have a lot of voice acting, and they are really good as well. It wouldn't hurt to give the final boss a line or two, would it?

-Redbook Audio. Yes, I know this is outdated but hearing high quality PMD music in this epic fashion would be an (impossible) dream come true, especially considering how well it helped the Ys (Ys I-IV on the PC Engine CD), Sonic (Sonic CD Japanese version) and Castlevania (Rondo of Blood) games.

-Classic music. I loved how in GTI you could replay select older tracks from the musical paradise if you bought the DLC, and I'd love to see more of that in PSMD, as long as they weren't all locked behind DLC of course.

-Cinematic cutscenes. While GTI had these in some way, I think a big, impressive, epic cutscene would be a great way to show off some things in this game. X and Y did it, so PSMD should be able to do so too.

-Mega Evolution. Nearly every Gen VI spinoff so far has mega evolution in some way, so there's no excuse for it to be absent in PSMD. It would lead to some great story elements.

-Multiple endings. While PMD GTI did have a "bad ending", it was pretty tame and didn't do much besides reverse time. I think having multiple paths for many different endings would be fantastic in PSMD, especially since Spike Chunsoft have experience in this field. (Otogirisou, 999, Virtue's Last Reward, Danganronpa, etc.) Would also encourage multiple replays of the game as well.

-Multiple save files. I feel that since the Wiiware PMD games had them, even if they weren't great games, it would be helpful if they finally had a main PMD game with more than one save file, especially if the multiple endings idea is actually used.


And that's my random (But probably unlikely) ideas for what should be added in the new Pokemon Mystery Dungeon game! Honestly, I'm excited for just a screenshot at this point. Hopefully we'll get to see what the game looks like very soon!

Post by: InsigTurtle on May 23, 2015, 06:36:15 PM
If Mega Evolution is added, I hope they add special music/remix for it for each dungeon. like how in Touhou 13 there's a separate track with different instrumentation that plays when you enter trance mode, or like how a remix plays inside on the pipe in Koopa Cape in MK Wii, since a single "mega evolution" track could get boring and it prompts people to play earlier dungeons if they wish to hear the Maurice (like the illusion tracks in GTI). or they could just have no special music playing. That would be meh

I just had an idea. It will reconcile both parties that both want and don't want the questionnaire. I don't think this will actually happen, but it could work.

Remember the Colored Bow you magically get from nowhere at the beginning of PMD2 (the color of which corresponds to the Aura you were analyzed to have had?). This was a really helpful item to carry around at the beginning of the game because it boosted ALL your stats.

Here's my idea. You can CHOOSE whether or not to take the Personality Test. However, you will not get an Aura-related item if you opt instead to just pick your Poké-Avatar. The game could pull off some kind excuse for the weakening of the player by having a Xatu-like NPC saying "Your weakened state is due to the misalignment of your spirit aura and your present body."

....I do wish I could get photoshop someday. I'd make tons of mockups due to my excitement for the game, even if some of them make no sense at all.

EDIT: I just realized something horrifying. They used pokedex 3D models for GTI... And Gen VI was never included in Pokedex 3D... So how will they design the pokemon? I'm kinda nervous they'll go and use the terrible models made by Ambrella like they did for PMD3, since Pokemon Rumble World made Gen VI pokemon into those models. I'm actually quite terrified now that they'll try that again...

That would be terrifying, but I honestly don't think that's going to happen. They already have 90% of the sprites done, given that Gen 6 has introduced so few Pokémon. (Well, Mega Evolutions....)

Still, I don't think they'd lower their standards for the graphics. (GTI WAS BEAUTIFUL!!)

Yeah, after how nice GTI and EMD looked I'd hate for them to go back to sprites. I'd honestly only accept it if it would the only way we could get voice acting in the game somehow. (Hey if Pikachu of all things can have a voice in Gen VI surely something in PSMD can as well?)

I've always felt that it would add more charm and personality to the game, like it did in Pokepark Wii. As much as I dislike those games in terms of gameplay, I still found it to be adorable how every Pokemon had their own voice from the anime. Since Pokemon in PMD say more than just their name, I honestly believe that it would be a great series to get some sort of voice acting, even if it was something simple like a laugh from the main antagonists or whatnot. Of course, as long as it isn't cringe worthy like the anime specials... (Save for the animated trailers for Gates to Infinity)

While I agree that voice acting is amazing in some situations (hm... Professor Layton) I find it kind of awkward hearing Pokémon speak in English. Especially since you can believe they (your partner in particular) sound however you want them to, to really feel like it's your own story and experience. I wouldn't want to risk the universality of the story.

In my opinion, some things are best left to the imagination...

What would Hydreigon sound like? Morgan Freeman?

While I can see where you are coming from with that, (In my opinion I also like the idea of feeling like it's me in the PMD games, and that my partner is their own person instead of the same character as everybody else) I still think having something to change things up isn't a bad idea. Heck, X and Y had optional lyrics for it's end credits that you could sing in your head if you wanted to, so maybe PSMD could at least have that for it's ending? I don't know, it's just with no screenshots, trailer, music or anything from PSMD I'm very nervous and also excited on what they'll do with this new installment.

I agree with Latios. Even in the animated special, I was just saying "No! Umbreon does NOT talk like that!"
Also, I pronounce some Pokemon's names wrong (for example, Virizion), so I would get annoyed at the game.
Professor Layton's voice acting is great, and so is Kid Icarus:Uprising's, but I think that would be too much of a shift for me to have it in a Pokemon game. I think making it optional could work, though.

Yeah I can agree with that at least. This Pikachu bias because he's the mascot shouldn't get too out of hand.

I guess the whole reason I hoped for some sort of voice acting in PMD was because I'm hoping that they'll expand the universe somehow. (Like with another Anime special, a third Manga, a CD drama, something that can give extra info on the inevitable mysteries left unsolved in this game's plot.)

To be fair, I've found it very irritating how they only seem to do these things for the main series, with all of the CD dramas they have released, the numerous manga series they've published, etc when PMD should be able to have at least one of those considering how it's the most popular of the spinoff franchises.

*voice acting in PMD discussion*
I like the idea of having voice acting as part of a SEPARATE medium from the game (like the CD drama idea, or anime adaptations), but since the game is supposed to be YOUR experience, leaving it up to the imagination is best.
HOWEVER, if this fan voice-acting clip of the Disappearance scene from PMD2 is any evidence, it definitely could have some strong emotional power (again, in it's own medium, not part of the game itself)

Ah the PMD1 manga... I remember learning about it and going nuts in school back in the day. I kept nagging my school librarian for a copy until she finally said "OK just leave me alone and look at Borders or something.", where my Aunt took me and there I saw it! I was so happy that I brought it home and read the entire book.

...Well, compared to the games I found it to be a bit confusing and not as emotional as I would have liked it to be, but it was still interesting nonetheless. When I learned the PMD2 Manga was more emotional (And fixed my problems with the characters), I desperately wanted a copy to the point I emailed Viz Media asking for a localization. (Of course since I was 10 I had bad grammar so I obviously didn't get a response.) I heard there was a fan translation, but I've never seen it for myself and even then I'd prefer a physical copy somehow. If they did make one for PSMD, I would absolutely do everything I could to have Viz Localize it, especially since we FINALLY have Pokemon Adventures in English after so many years.

...And somebody made a PMD2 audio drama. I think I'm going to leave the room and scream in excitement that there are so many great fans out there. Seriously we don't even have one screenshot and this topic is at seven pages already, and I feel glad I'm not the only excited one here.

Naaaah. That enough was stupid, we don't need anything like that again.

^this times 1000 idc that only Pikachu got its anime cry, I care that its original cry was nixed in favor of the iconic one. Pokémon saying their names is fine for a kid's show but I absolutely hate how Pikachu's cry is just its own name in the games now. Especially since it evolves and becomes an animal noise again.

PLOT PREDICTION BECAUSE I HAVE NO LIFE


The Studio
•Brand new staff is employed to write script (Shinichiro Tomie is probably burnt out)
•All previous PMD composers re-unite in a super dream team, making the composition staff total at 8 members

Generalities
•Playable character is a human-turned-Pokémon (I'm such a Sherlock); amnesiac? maybe
•Playable character will have a special power, like the Dimensional Scream in PMD2
•There will be a partner (I had to think hard about that one)
•Partner will grow to care deeply for you, even to the point of possible room for shipping.
•Partner's history may be explored (a la Gates to Infinity)
•Partner's family could be in the story... (following the trend from Gates)
•Which Pokémon you are has no effect on the plot, besides some minor dialogue alterations (see Rescue Team for instance)
•Likely will be only one town, but considering it's SUPER Mystery Dungeon, multiple towns would be cool (kinda like the multiple Planets in Metroid Prime 3)
•Diancie will be a queen for cosmetic effect to the town
•There will be a Exploration coalition of some sort (a guild, HAPPI, or something of the like)
•Main conflict concerns legendary and mystical pokémon and the fate of the world (pulled that right out of my butt! the main site announcement!)
•The inevitable plot twist will involve a betrayal by someone close to you, the playable character.
•Dungeon researcher type characters (ex: Umbreon and Espeon in GtI) will play a supporting role

Various Cliche Plot Points
•Partner will instantly believe you are a human, like in Gates, despite knowledge humans are a myth.
•Some cute, innocent pokémon will have her item stolen and you have to save her item
•Some 6th gen legendary will appear to the player character in their dreams; initial dreams will be vague.
•Some local lore will involve a tale about Zygarde acting as a guardian that keeps the World's Balance.
•Town turns on you by some twist of events related to the lore

Post by: Bespinben on May 28, 2015, 02:23:00 AM
More theories to keep me sane until new news comes. (You may just be right Fingerz)


PMD Gates to Infinity is really the Pokémon version of Fullmetal Alchemist. Here's why:

1.) Magnagates = Transmutation Circles
(https://www.ninsheetmusic.org/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi1111.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fh475%2FBespinben%2FblueportalgifFinal_zpspr1dt3kv.gif&hash=a6611d767ab868a931fba377ff20c2e9) (http://s1111.photobucket.com/user/Bespinben/media/blueportalgifFinal_zpspr1dt3kv.gif.html)VS.
(https://www.ninsheetmusic.org/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi1111.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fh475%2FBespinben%2Ffullmetalfinal_zpsdm3xess6.gif&hash=51e7826e7525701948653df019880745) (http://s1111.photobucket.com/user/Bespinben/media/fullmetalfinal_zpsdm3xess6.gif.html)

Proof is in the pudding. Also worthy of note is how both use this mechanic as a means to traverse dimensions. In Fullmetal Alchemist (at least in the 2003 anime), performing a human transmutation has the potential to "open the other side of the Gate", resulting in a portal to the (4th wall break!) THE REAL WORLD WE LIVE IN.
As for Gates to Infinity, the BLUE Magnagate is only seen in context of PMD --> Human World cross-relations (ex: the .gif above, as well as using the in-game Magnagate dungeon feature that uses the 3DS camera). Similar wording is used in the Our First Meeting scene to describe its function - "...but what will happen if I tell him that I came from the OTHER SIDE OF THE SKY? Guess I'll just have to spill the beans." This Blue Magnagate ALSO breaks the 4th wall, just like in Fullmetal Alchemist.

2.) Entercards = Philosopher Stone (or any kind of alchemic modifier)
(https://www.ninsheetmusic.org/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi1111.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fh475%2FBespinben%2Ftumblr_mxdchlciVU1sgiwtdo1_400_zpsyppcojva.gif&hash=d09c1c9571beda3108bc02b3a3a29e92) (http://s1111.photobucket.com/user/Bespinben/media/tumblr_mxdchlciVU1sgiwtdo1_400_zpsyppcojva.gif.html)

Notice how in PMD:GtI that, when Entercards are invoked, the aura of the Magnagate turns RED? Similarly, in FMA, transmutations aided by the power of a Philsopher Stone (or, alternatively, faux "Red Stones") also have a RED aura.
----------

Post-Commentary:
*I always struck me odd how you never learned how to use Entercards to create Magnagates yourself in the game -- you always had to go through Umbreon and Espeon. If their so-called Science is really Alchemy (a la Fullmetal), then it would make sense there would only be a select few that could perform the art, as we see the majority of the population in Fullmetal Alchemist do not have the natural talent to perform alchemy.
*Umbreon and Espeon seem to give of a "Roy Mustang x Riza Hawkeye" vibe...

When Edward goes to our world, he is put into the body of a human from our world (hence the "does transmutation mean anything to you?" line). What about when you're put into the body of a Pokemon?

Post by: Hero of Trains on May 28, 2015, 04:08:04 AM
You should watch it! It's really good.
Although similar in appearance to Al, the Zelda/Phantom mechanic has many differences. First, Phantoms do not have free will. They are just sentries. Al, however, is his own person. At times he disagrees with Ed, and he has his own personality. In the spirit Zelda mechanic, she can control Phantoms. Although in this mode she has free will and control over the suitor armor, she us not bound to it like Al is, and she can move freely between Phantoms, and even just as a spirit.
Well, that was a very long-winded explanation, wasn't it. Basically, just watch the show. :P

Also about Zelda vs Alphonse: Al is a human soul trapped in a suit of armor. Zelda is a spirit who posses armor to control it for a slight period of time. I wouldn't really compare the two (since Al's situation is a lot more heartbreaking) but the armor designs are very similar

OH MY GOSH. Trains you just answered one of the questions that always had been on my mind about Gates to Infinity (using my own theory no less!). It makes so much sense. If we liken the Player's soul being transported to the body of a Pokémon as being analogous to Alphonse's soul-to-armor situation, then, in order to bring the Player's soul back to their human body in the human world, the necessary sacrifice to satisfy the equivalent exchange.... would be the memories of everyone (just like in FMA 2003). Now I would like to investigate what caused this equivalent exchange to be overruled in the Finale to bring the Player back to the Pokémon world (and with everyone's memories intact)... I mean sure the power of love, hope, friendship is magic etc, etc, -- but I think there's something deeper!

Oh, and today marks 1-week since the announcement of Super Mystery Dungeon!
(Funny, it only took Gates to Infinity TWO DAYS between the announcement and the first trailer... GRAAAAH)

"Magnagate = Alchemy" theory now proven. (Why didn't I google Ley Lines earlier?)

(https://www.ninsheetmusic.org/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi1111.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fh475%2FBespinben%2Forigins_zpskbi07fss.jpg&hash=ded532946723c34e01a9c58d940070dc) (http://s1111.photobucket.com/user/Bespinben/media/origins_zpskbi07fss.jpg.html)
(Leygate? oh come on that's a total giveaway!)

It's important to note Nicholas Flammel (c. 1300s) was most notably skilled as an alchemist, rather than a magician.
(Granted, the Wiki is of pop fantasy, but this stuff goes way back)

I believe they mentioned Ley Lines in both FMA and PMD. In FMA, I think it was sometime directly after Al... you know (I can't add spoilers right now because the forum's messed up). In PMD, it was when they were discussing magnagates.

That looks really cool!

IT IS TIME


(Can anyone translate?)

- Release date September 17.
- Good sprites. Awwww yea. Gameplay looks pretty much like GTI.
- Pikachu stares into a pool of water, shocked (that feels familiar).
- GIANT WAILORD MOVING AROUND THE DUNGEON IS HILARIOUS
- Monster houses return.
- Some new colorful town-looking place. I spy Kecleon and Cofagrigus shops, and a new Klefki one on the left. (Treasure-chest opening service?)
- Sad Piplup is sad.
- Apparently all 720 Pokemon are in this game!
- Many cutscenes of Legendaries.
- Looks like you will have your choice of any regular starter, Pikachu, or Riolu. (No personality quiz, though?)
- *lots of Japanese text I can't read*
- Cutscene of Rayquaza crashing into Deoxys in space (DELTA EPISODE REFERENCE??)
- The music sounds great just like I'd expect! I'm going to guess this is the opening theme. Starts off with a bang, includes a slew of sounds to create the feeling of a grand adventure. Then it slows down a bit just like the other opening themes so you get the chance to just stare in awe. It starts building up to an awesome finish ...and the song fades out.

More variety, still seems like a good story, the legendaries look gorgeous, (If Articuno has a role in the story again I'll be super happy) and the music is amazing! Great thing to wake up to this morning. Seems that I was wrong on it being PMD Ultra though in japan... Likely because I thought super and Ultra looked the same in Japanese.

...Now the hardest part of it all, waiting a month or two after the JP release. Sadly while I do know a bit of Japanese I'm no master, so if I were to translate the text in the trailer myself to romanji it would take a while, and then translating the romanji to rough english would take even longer for me. Wouldn't be surprised if there's a fan translated version from someone better than me in a few weeks or so, but if not, I can try translating key parts, even though it likely wouldn't be as good as from those who know more than me...

From my understanding and (limited) knowledge, the first picture translates to "Eh!? What's that!?" like it's an unknown reflection.

Translating the second one now, will edit when done

EDIT: Second one's very complicated for me due to the presence of Katakana which I don't know yet. Regardless I tried anyway and it seems to roughly translate to "Did I really become a Pokemon?" Not 100% sure but wouldn't surprise me considering the nature of the game

EDIT 2: Looked around the internet some more and PMD2 Nostalgia aside, a few people in comment sections claims that the other NPCs are talking about pokemon suddenly becoming petrified and turned to stone, which may be the story focus. Also Piplup apparently is upset because children can't join exploration teams? Seems a bit strange to me, but hopefully we'll have an english version soon so we can be 100% certain.

Yay! A translated (and slightly different) video + commentary! Watch starting around 5:40!


Mostly things we've already confirmed yesterday (thanks, translators!), but it's nice to have things translated.
- Pikachu staring into water has just been turned into a Pokémon. (Surprise!) The text "Have I become a Pokémon?!" kind of indicates they have some previous memory.
- Pokémon have been turning to stone.
- Piplup is sad because kids aren't allowed to join the "Expedition Society", whatever that may be.

They did seem to omit a lot of the legendary Pokémon's quotes, though.

Also I think the opening theme plays further in than yesterday! It's a little hard to hear when the guy's talking though and we still aren't shown the ending of it...

In the anime, anyone who had their life energy completely drained by Yveltal would become petrified

 The spin-off games have taken inspiration from the anime on multiple occasions, so I'm thinking Yveltal is at least one of many culpable culprits.

Let's hope that this time Yveltal is more menacing and he doesn't simply turn someone to stone only to have them revived a minute later. I hated that about the Diancie movie the most, as he could have been a total threat in that movie.

In my opinion though I hope it's Hoopa Unbound, since that would make for an epic final boss fight.

from the trailer, I'm guessing they aren't going to have the quiz. All the available Pokemon were together in a sort of selection wheel. Sucks cuz I like the quiz, but I didn't like resetting over and over to get the Pokemon I wanted.

Yeah the quiz was only needed for me once, in the original games as during that point in my life I had just been through numerous rough times and it really helped me to feel like myself. Nowadays I prefer a choice but the impact was still strong.

Japanese Preorder info (Thanks to Serebii)

"First, if you purchase the physical or the download copy, you will get a Nintendo 3DS theme featuring the package illustration drawn by Ken Sugimori
Second, if you purchase the physical version, you'll get a set of 3D stickers using illustrations from the box art, also drawn by Ken Sugimori
Finally, if you purchase the download version, you'll get a second Nintendo 3DS theme for your home screen
We'll provide full details and images of these bonuses as and when they are released."


So it seems the artwork will be similar to the box art of RT/Explorers, where it was drawn by Ken Sugimori. Neat info! Hope it looks good. The 3DS Home themes make me very excited as well.

I freaking love this new Title Theme. Reminds me a lot of the style of the Gates to Infinity "Opening" (which leads me to believe maybe at least 1 or 2 people got carried over from the composition staff). It starts off with a bombastic arrangement of the iconic Rescue Team motif, introduces the game's own motifs at first very charmingly but gradually growing in splendor, and then it finally breaks out with a glorious trumpet solo before the music tapers out at the end (jerks!).

Post by: Bespinben on June 08, 2015, 09:37:31 PM
The drought of news has re-ignited my speculation/wishlisting fuels once again.

The general feeling I get is that Pokémon Co. is going to really try advertise Super Mystery Dungeon big time. That their "big announcement" of a new game back in April turned out to be THIS GAME is my reasoning.

If that is the case, then I think Pokémon Co. needs to pull another Pokémon Ranger. What does that mean? It means bridging the imaginary gap between spin-offs and the main series. Remember how the only way to get a Manaphy in Diamond/Pearl versions was to import an egg over from Pokémon Ranger? By doing this, it forced main series collect-em-all-ers to investigate the then brand new spin-off title -- and it worked.

So how might Super Mystery Dungeon tie into the main series, and if it did, what kind of incentive would it provide?

Gates to Infinity opened the door already for bridging the gap between PMD-Earth and normal Earth, but it never did anything with the concept, and in all honesty, it couldn't, because the hidden implication in GtI was that "human world" was very literally REAL LIFE due to the 4th wall demolition. HOWEVER, if Super Mystery Dungeon follows after the vein of Explorers (and it seems to be doing that a great degree already), we can expect the Player Character to be moreso an avatar rather than You Yourself. In such a setting, making an in-game connection to the main-series world would be possible because the "human world" could simply just be the main series world.

As for a possible storyline, perhaps it could be some sort of post-credits mission with the Expedition Society deciding to investigate some interdimensional rift created by Hoopa. This would lead to some kind of experiment of sending a parcel through to "the other side", and perhaps in X/Y 2, Z, or Delta Emerald, there would be an event programmed into the game that, by receiving this unknown parcel from another dimension, it would be the key to unlocking said event. Maybe Volcanion? Maybe the parcel could contain a super OP Rescue Badge that would be extremely useful in competitive battling? who knows...

Pokémon Co. has their opportunity to draw in the fragmented Pokémon fanbase to one of the longest running spinoffs in the entire franchise. Will they pull it off? I sure hope so.
Title: Re: POKÉMON SUPER MYSTERY DUNGEON
Post by: SlowPokemon on June 08, 2015, 10:13:33 PM
Making any attempt to meld the stories of the main series with the spinoffs would be such a dumb and, for me, disappointing move. As much as I love PMD it's not worthy of being called a true Pokémon game like the actual main series are. It's simply not even in the same tier or caliber, not to mention that the development teams are totally different--Chunsoft doesn't have the rights to the individual contents of the Pokémon regions, for instance. It's not going to happen.
Title: Re: POKÉMON SUPER MYSTERY DUNGEON
Post by: Bespinben on June 08, 2015, 10:23:16 PM
I agree it probably won't happen.

However, the main series and spinoffs HAVE already melded once - through Pokémon Ranger. It even got it's own movie (why can't PMD have a movie?). This is a fact that can't be ignored. It might not work for Mystery Dungeon specifically, but I see no reason to have this imaginary line drawn up between spin-offs and main series when that barrier HAS ALREADY been torn down once, with success.

Unless you didn't like the Pokémon Ranger movie or the exclusivity of the Manaphy egg. Then my point is moot.

Translation of trailer dialogue and text (thank you Reddit):


What they say on-screen will be quoted, what the announcer says will be normal.

An adventure on a scale never seen before! (title) One day, you have been turned into a Pokemon, and join a research team with your partner, who has a map they want to fulfil.
Pikachu: Eh? What's this?! Somehow... I've become a Pokemon?! Eeeehhh~~?! Piplup: Join a research team and explore a bunch of places... And someday, I'll >finish my map of the world's stars!
Before long, you are head off into an adventure where you explore many dungeons with your partner, and explore the vast world.
Piplup: Whoa! The calm village makes you feel like smiling, doesn't it?
Before you begin, you must answer several questions given to you.
Answer the questions honestly... Let's awake the Pokemon sleeping within! It's a nerve-wracking first day at school... What want the people you'll be friends >with to be like? In the same class./They'll chat with me./ I wonder if they'll greet me?/ I'm nervous.
By answering these, you choose yourself and your partner.
What Pokemon would you like your partner to be? Cool!/Cute! There are 20 different Pokemon to choose from! You're Pikachu! Pikachu: Whoa! Look at that!
Go, with your partner, to the Mystery Dungeons!
It's a monster house! These mysterious dungeons change shape each time you journey inside. It's a spinning trap! Pikachu's confused! Snivy warped!
[The screen with the connections lists pokemon you've met, which is 52.] There are over 720 Pokemon, all Pokemon, appearing onscreen.
All 720 Pokemon appear onscreen!
Combine powers with your allies, use tools, and work through formidable dungeons.
Riolu used the Role Call Orb! [The Forest is called 'Yesterday's Forest'] Snivy use the Sleep Branch!
During your adventure, there is a dreadful case of Pokemon being turned to stone, one by one.
Lombre: Recently, there's been incidents of Pokemon being turned to stone. Piplup: Ehh?! Pokemon to stone?! Latios: Keep up! Latias! Kyogre: Stonified...?
Both legendary and illusory Pokemon are being turned to stone, by a mysterious power.
Lugia: Both legendary and illusionary Pokemon have come here... Zekrom: We... have been turned to stone... Reshiram: Who's work is this? Dialga: Also... from where?
This envelops the lives of all the Pokemon in the world.
Deoxys: That's...! Gaaaah! So, what has happened... on this planet?
It's an adventure with unimaginable Pokemon, on an unimaginable scale!
Arceus: This needs the concentration of all the Pokemon in the world... Piplup: Gyaaaaa!

Ever since I was young I had a theory that Explorers took place on a western continent while rescue team took place in the east. Did I see the future?

Also, if RRT'S region is returning, I hope they do something Like Ys IV where they completely remaster some of the OST.

Okay I'm all for speculation and I don't mean to sound like a prick but don't compare Pokémon with other Nintendo titles as it is developed by Game Freak, separately from Nintendo, and is only published by Nintendo. That's a pet peeve of mine. This one isn't even really developed by Game Freak, though, so it's even further removed from Nintendo.

I'm so stoked to revisit Great Canyon and its glorious music...

(anyone notice in the English trailer a week ago there was a dungeon that looked kinda like Great Canyon?)

I'm thinking Sequel. Everything seems a bit "clean" on the RRT continent, implying to me that the events of the meteor are now ancient legends. Speaking of which, what if they rereleased RRT/BRT on VC to celebrate and if it detects them on your Nintendo eShop account, your old team will reappear in the story as legendary heroes? Super unlikely but would be neat nonetheless.

I had been thinking about how SuperPMD is now essentially the Gold/Silver "Johto"  to Rescue Team's "Kanto", which led me to fantasizing of final boss battle against YOURSELF (i.e. the PMD equivalent of fighting Red atop Mt. Silver). I had avoided the thought of if they would include the Hero/Partner of PMD1 though because EVERYONE's set is different... but with your idea that actually makes it work. The only problem is that if you do that, then it raises the question of is the PMD1 Hero YOU, or is your SuperPMD Hero YOU? (Or neither, Gates considered)

I'm always chosen as Sassy though

Yeah that would be an issue. I'm not expecting it, but maybe this game will be the one that reveals the mysteries of the hero Lucario? Maybe HE'S the ultimate challenge, being hailed as a legendary hero even back in Rescue Team, before Gen IV existed. The RRT continent gives me hope that piece of the story will finally be revealed.

 It would also be neat if he had his own battle theme that fits with his strength, as if it was a desperate battle with an indestructible hero. Something along the lines of this would fit well in my opinion.

Well I finally got a USB keyboard for my Wii U so I suppose I can give my plot prediction and hopes for this game early! It'll be quite long, so I hope you don't mind lots of detail and speculation. Of course none is this is confirmed and it's likely that these things won't happen in the game at all, or in the order i'm guessing them to happen in.

First off, just for fun, two cool composers that I would love to see in this game, along with an example of their prior work. even if it's EXTREMELY unlikely, it's still fun to hope.

Spoiler

Ryo Yonemitsu: Famous for remixing Falcom music. He hasn't done anything in a while though, and I can't find any data on whether he's active as a composer or not. Regardless, his talent would be neat to see in a game like this.


Example: A Still time (Ys I-II, PC Engine CD, 1990) I feel it would be neat to see a song of this beauty in the game somehow. While we have advanced past the age of Redbook audio, that still doesn't mean relaxing songs like this couldn't be made for PSMD, even if it's unlikely that Yonemitsu would do it.

Yoko Shimomura: Famous for a LOT of JRPG soundtracks, most notably Kingdom Hearts. I think we would all like someone of her talent and experience lending a hand with this soundtrack.



Example: MEGALOMANIA (Live a Live, 1994, Super Famicom) You are probably confused on why I picked an obscure song from an obscure game instead of one of her more recent songs as an example. Well, in my opinion I think we need some change in the boss music. Having the same theme for four games now is a bit silly. What better way to change it up than to have an intense, epic theme similar to this to get everyone excited for an upcoming boss battle, made by a legendary composer? It would certainly be a nice change of pace for her considering how she's mostly known for more emotional songs in this day and age.
[close]

With my "Dream Team" composers out of the way, here's my "Not likely but still fun to speculate based off of the trailer" plot predictions. Let me know what you think about my predictions, on if some of them may be likely from what we know, or if some of these are rather crazy. E3 is next week, so it's likely there will be a demo for the press. Maybe then we can see if I got some of these things right!

Spoiler
Plot Predictions: Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon

-Game would begin with a legend of sorts, going over the events that have happened in the prior games (the RRT continent in the trailer leads me to believe it'll mention every major game in the series.) Explorers would be the first in the timeline, followed by Gates to Infinity, then Rescue Team before finally PSMD. Squad doesn't count. Current timeline is the good future from Explorers.

-Human would find herself in a mysterious dream, where the quiz takes place. Option to skip the quiz and go straight to what the player feels is best. After the duo is picked the player would emerge next to a lake, and discover that he/she is a Pokemon now. Would meet the partner shortly afterwards, who wants to join an exploration society for an unexplained reason.

-The partner was told by a group of "experts" that they can't join due to their ages, making him/her demotivated. The player would explain that they should try anyway to help others, as they go through a simple dungeon to find a lost item.

-The duo succeeds and learns that they can join, in fact they are encouraged to due to the incidents of pokemon turning to stone. They enter the "Grass village" and sign up, becoming a team.

-The next day after filler missions the duo learns that the "experts" who made the partner sad earlier are actually jerks that can't do anything, meaning they would be the Team Skull of this game.

-They do more missions as the player wonders why he is in the world of pokemon, as the partner overhears, mentioning how he isn't sure either, as her parents disappeared ages ago, and she wanted to be an explorer to find them.

-The next day the townsfolk report on how the town guardian, Shaymin (Chosen due to being a grass legendary) was turned to stone after strange visitors arrived. The duo enter a nearby cave to investigate and discover the evil team of this game. The evil team run away as the duo gives chase, before losing them and ending up in the "Desert Village". They learn that this town has not been hit by the petrification, as they decide to stay and help protect the town from those mysterious thieves.

-After a few more dungeons and minor tasks, they learn that the trio of mysterious pokemon return, as the duo decides to stop them from hurting the guardian of the town. They enter Mespirit's domain as the encounter the evil trio, who wants the energy from the Mespirit, They successfully turn her to stone as one of the members battle your team, before losing quickly. The team is warped out just in time before being turned to stone.

-Understanding that they cannot defeat the evil trio without learning more, the duo decide to head to other villages and warn them about the danger.

-The duo enters a volcano, before being stopped by Entei, who is on the side of the evil trio for some reason. They battle and defeat him as they move on to the "Fire village".

-The duo warns the town about the evil trio, encouraging them to heavily guard the town. They do so just in time to block an incoming petrification attack. With the job done, they do a few more missions to help the town before learning from the town guardian, Ho-Oh that long ago there were attempts to throw the pokemon world in peril, but each time a human saved the day. Ho-Oh tells the player that he is the one who must save the world from the worst danger yet. To learn more about the legend, they are told to find lapras.

-The defenses are broken as the trio turns everyone in the village besides the Kecleon and team into stone. They leave the Fire village and head back to the Grass Village.

-Luckily nobody else was turned to stone due to Shaymin's power being all that was needed. The society recommends heading west to find Lapras, and to consult the guild for help.

-The duo head through many, many dungeons to get to the Guild, where they meet the new guildmaster, who tells them that ages ago three heroes went and found lapras to go to the hidden land and restore time. She guides them to the beach cave where Lapras takes them to the Hidden Land.

-At the Hidden Land, the three are horrified to find it destroyed, but luckily the rainbow stoneship was still working, as the duo head to Temporal Tower, where they meet the trio at the top. Two members leave to attack the other regions, while one fights the duo, who defeats him. However Dialga is still turned to stone as he tells them to hurry east and warn Rayquaza.

-Leaving Temporal Tower, Lapras takes them to the RRT continent, where they go into Pokemon Square and warn everyone. Team ACT, still alive tells them to head to Great Canyon, and find Xatu who can help them with their quest.

-The duo heads to Great Canyon and meets Xatu, who tells them the world is in calamity again, as a big threat is about the destroy the world. Mentioning the RRT team who saved the world long ago, he teleports the duo to Sky Tower, where they scale it before finding another member of the evil trio at the top.

-This member explains how they need the energy of Rayquaza's true form to power up their master, Yveltal. Forcing Rayquaza to Mega Evolve, Rayquaza attacks the duo. Unable to hurt Rayquaza, it seems like they are about to die at his wrath, before Xerneas comes and heals him, saving him from petrification as the evil member gets mad, before fighting your team himself. You battle him and defeat him before Xerneas tells you that one last member remains, in Post town to the north. She teleports you there before telling you that an item owned by the voice of life can restore all petrified pokemon to normal.

-Arriving in post town, they learn that everybody has been turned to stone, as the last evil member fled to Glacial Tower which has appeared yet again. Unable to reach the tower, they seek the voice of life.

-However on the way, they get stopped by the team of "experts" from earlier, who are after the Voice of Life as well for the sole purpose of getting rich. After an easy battle, the Voice of Life appears, as Hydregion, explaining how the only way to get to the Glacial tower is by meeting Lugia and the legendary birds, who can take them to the tower. Hydregion gives the duo a bell that when hit at the top of Glacial Tower, will restore all pokemon turned to stone back to normal.

-Going through another dungeon, the Partner reveals that her parents were explorers long ago as well, before passing away one day, after going missing for months. They weren't actually still missing, but it was just a lie made to get you to join the partner with his dream. Understanding her grief, you tell her that you will always be there to help her.

-At the end of the dungeon, you meet the four legendaries. Lugia takes you to Glacial tower, as the legendary birds turn to stone. Time is running out, so the duo must hurry!

-Arriving at the tower, it has completely changed from last time due to the influence of Yveltal. Scaling the tower, the duo discovers the last member of the evil trio fighting Kyruem, who warns them that Reshiram and Zekrom are in grave danger before turning to stone. The last member then steals your bell and breaks it, as Reshiram and Zekrom turn to stone.

-Arceus watches from above, nervous at the state of the world as he notices the final member going back to the RRT Continent. Suddenly he's turned to stone by a mysterious force, causing the whole world to slow down, with many areas being petrified.

-Worried sick, the partner fears for the fate of his home village, the Grass area. Returning there thanks to Lugia, they discover it's completely petrified, as the forces of Yveltal begin to grow. Determined to stop him from getting full power, the duo heads back to the RRT continent, where they find Latios and Latias, very nervous due to the growing spread of petrification. If it keeps up, everybody will turn to stone forever.

-Xerneas reappears, stating how there's still hope. If they journey to the newly relocated Wish Cave and tell Jirachi their wish, then everyone can be restored for good.

-Rayquaza goes into space after discovering a strange, familiar disturbance in space. Flying by Deoxys, he discovers that a mysterious pokemon is causing the petrification to strengthen, and it isn't Yveltal. Nervous, he rushes to the duo's side, before being stopped by Deoxys who thinks he's a threat, before being defeated and weakened, unable to warn them.

-Going into the wish cave, they discover the final member trying to get Jirachi to fulfill his wish of infinite power to Yveltal, but is refused due to having a heart of darkness. The duo fights the final member, as he's defeated. They make a wish to purify everyone, as the world is returned to normal. Warning them that Yveltal is dangerous, they go to make their final journey, entering the dark crater and encountering Yveltal. After a super close battle to the finish, they discover that Yveltal meant no harm, and was being controlled by Giratina, who was also controlling the three legendary dogs. After another battle with Entei and the other two, the final battle against Giratina begins. After defeating both of his forms with the power of all pokemon on earth, the situation seems to be over.

-Back in their home town, the duo is welcomed home by the other residents, who thank them for saving the entire planet. Suddenly, the player begins to glow, as he is told by Xerneas that his duty is complete, and he should now return to the Pokemon World. As the Player says farewell, he returns back to his world, ending the main game...

...And that's my very long, random prediction on the main game of PSMD. I feel there will be a long post game, so expect an even more crazy prediction for the post game too.  Still, what do you guys think the story will be? I'd love to see what others think this game's epic story will be, so share your predictions as our hype continues.

My plot prediction for PSMD may be partially right then with Xerneas in the background! Hydregion was on GTI's boxart and he was a main character, so maybe she will be the one who summoned the player. But the fact that the pictures indicate that your partner's biggest dream is to create a world map means that there's likely a lot of things I didn't get right. Oh well, I can make up for it with a post game prediction. The box art is absolutely gorgeous!

Oh yeah, There is an Nintendo Network logo on the box. Meaning we'll have one of the following:

-Online multiplayer/rescues
-DLC (Seems likely due to GTI and EMD)
-Miiverse

There's also new pics and some of them are interesting.

Oh, that thing on the top right is a Belly counter. The text's just telling you to hurry the fuck up and eat something because damn son you're hungry. Not in that tone, of course :P

Although, that meter isn't present in the rest of the screenshots... except for those at the end of one of the pages I linked, that belly meter pops up when it warns you that you're getting hungry. So I guess it's present in all dungeons, but it's hidden unless you're famished?

(Yes this is from a real game, not a fandub)

Never forget the odd days of Voice acting. While I do think it would be nice to have in PMD I wouldn't want it to be this silly.

Nintendo's E3 is not too far away. Hopefully we hear more PSMD news.

They JUST wrapped up a treehouse live segment, Interesting details:

-Genders are back
-You are apparently found by a Nuzleaf
-Your Partner meets you later outside his home
-Village has a name,  Serene Village
-Your Partner is OBSESSED with Exploration. Like, really badly.
-Your Partner has a dad. Carracoasta.
-First mission is saving goomy
-Later on you and your partner go to a lava area, where there seems to be a Drilbur guarding something underneath. Will my "Protect the fire village" theory be realized?
-Tiny Reviver Seeds are new
-Hunger is in the main story

Nothing mindblowing, still a Holiday 2015 release for the west but I'm still super excited!

Ever since that anime special for Rescue Team, I have always wanted to see my character wear the scarves I put on them. Also now that we have more diverse items like the Reunion Cape (which is useless but it could still be cool looking, assuming they make more wearable items like that) it makes for so many neat combinations.

Also Snivy with a bow tie would be fantastic lol

Someone with better eyes than me noticed, but in the treehouse live apparently you can speed up the text if you want to for whatever reason.

Well as long as you're able to full text boxes quickly so you don't have to wait to read the slow crawl of text like in Gates, I see no problem with it.
Title: Re: POKÉMON SUPER MYSTERY DUNGEON

I loved the slow text crawl. I'm not even joking. After falling in love with Ace Attorney slow moving text is weirdly comforting and even in other games I let it play out slowly.

I loved the slow text crawl. I'm not even joking. After falling in love with Ace Attorney slow moving text is weirdly comforting and even in other games I let it play out slowly.

That's why I thought the complaints about slow text speed in GTI was silly. It seemed to me that the majority of those complaining could care less about focusing on the story and that they just wanted to skip through it, even though in reality the text speed wasn't nearly as slow as some of the other games I've played. (Like Ys Book I and II where what would be a four minute cutscene ending if you could skip the text is always least ten minutes due to the inability to speed up the text at any point in the game, and since the ending has a ton of text the super slow text speed makes it frustrating to watch when you've completed the game many times already. GTI's text speed was much faster in comparison.) Still, the ability to speed up the text returns, so if those people want to ignore the story entirely because it isn't Sky then they can do so, even though it seems like they'll miss out from what we know so far. That being said if I played through Explorers again I'd likely want to skip everything too, so maybe it is helpful to have that option...

What I REALLY want to know is if they'll allow multiple jobs at once in the same dungeon again. That was one of the few issues I had with GTI.

Post by: K-NiGhT on June 21, 2015, 12:45:47 AM
I wouldn't have a problem with the text if I didn't read faster than it came up on screen. My problem isn't wanting to skip it. Mine is wanting to get it done in a timely fashion.

It bothered me and I love the storyline. I've got limited time as it is, let alone enough time to sit there for hours watching a cutscene dragged out due to sssslllloooowwww text.

I loved the cutscenes for those games, though! It's just that I'm a fast reader and don't need 5 minutes to contemplate what each sentence means... Gets REAL boring after a while.

The Japanese website for Super Mystery Dungeon has a very subtle feature for the official boxart where the background shows up first and then the Pokémon starters fade-in afterwards (all in about the time of 0.5 seconds). Because of that, I was able to isolate the background itself!

So I was dreaming about PSMD's launch (Hey I'm not the only one!) and it made me wonder...

"Holiday 2015". What month do you guys think PSMD will launch in NA? I'd love for it to come out on 9/17 for the US and EU along with Japan but it doesn't seem like it's happening. Fall (September to Early October in Nintendo's world) is pretty much likely either, so that leaves the rest as Holiday 2015. For reference, last year SSB Wii U and Captain Toad were labeled as Holiday games, and they launched in November and December respectively.

I really don't want PSMD to launch in December, since it would be 100% impossible to avoid spoilers for three months, and the wait would be more painful than it was for GTI for me, since I literally made a countdown to the GTI launch date and wished every single day until the 24th of March would end quickly so the game was in my hands. That was only three months, but it was during a slow time in school. This time it would be MUCH slower meaning I would lose my mind. October or November release is my hope.

And I swear if it launches on the same day as the pokemon ripoff or xenoblade x I'll be very upset as it may hurt the game's sales. I want PMD to continue forever!

(Or you know, have the games on VC... I could wait if they did that!)

There better be an announcement of a DS VC release of EOT/EOD/EOS then. I may not care for those games but I'll gladly take them in a heart beat if they get a VC release.

NO. NO, THIS IS BAD. If Wigglytuff is back there better be a boss battle against him so I can destroy him with Flare Blitz.

Rewatching the costume-clad commercial again for the umpteenth time, I happened to notice a NEW scene from the game itself:

The scene reminds me of Ys III's Pre Final boss cutscene, where Adol (The Hero) rises to fight the ultimate foe. Maybe this plays before an important boss fight?

I'm also disappointed that you never fight Team Skull.. At least in the main game. I feel like it would've been fitting to fight them for the water float or something, Idk... I mean, Rescue Team had the fight with Team Meanies, and it fit perfectly well.
Oh, and I'm a Pikachu, and Thunderbolt hits everyone around you, and my partner is a Torchic with Overheat. This game is easy, also because I take way too much time to do missions XD (at Diamond rank right now at temporal tower).

Ooooh this is getting better and better! Wonder if the Glacier Palace will make a comeback, but buried underwater due to it crashing into the sea...

Tomorrow is the stream guys. What do you think will happen during the PSMD segment? Mini poll of sorts:

A: Explain Treehouse Live events in Japanese (They didn't get a Japanese equivalent during E3 so info there is unknown)

B: Surprise EOT/EOD/EOS release on Japanese Wii U eShop after the stream (SUPER unlikely due to the VC game for Japan next week already confirmed as Mario Story)

C: Announcement of PMD on Japanese VC but coming "soon" (Sorta likely maybe? It's a no brainer that they would be excellent for Miiverse)

D: Announcement of Retro PMD 3DS themes (Inevitable, they did it for the main series. BUY THEM ALL)

E: Official confirmation of old areas returning

Nico Nico is pretty annoying to use. Even if you could watch it, if you don't have a premium account, you could be kicked out if too many people are watching, since there's a limited amount of viewers allowed to watch at once, and the video only lasts for 7 days... Ah, well.
So yeah. I wish for a Youtube video too.

Is explorers really the longest game? It didn't feel very long at all to me, I could've sworn Rescue team was longer (though that's probably just my nostalgia).

Well, it was kind of like that in the older games, eh, since you had to wait til you could access a dungeon before you could recruit its Pokémon?

I'm pretty sure you still have to unlock the dungeon where you can find the mon before recruiting it! I doubt it'll be like you can go recruit mons just like that without unlocking the dungeons, otherwise I think you could unlock any mon without advancing in the story? Anyway it's still frustrating because it might take forever until you can get the mon that you've really wanted in your team for a long time. Especially if the "all your Pokemon in your entire team earn the Exp" -thing from GtI is in the game, the mons you get later will be so underleveled that there's no reason to train them.

on another topic I'd love it if they made it so that you could access the Hidden Abilities to all of the mons somehow!!

BUT I HAVE A REVELATION!

Take a REAL close look at the background of the 3DS cover? Notice a shape? Something almost like a TIME GEAR? So you can get a good look at it, I erased all the 'Mons and manually reconstructed the design:

(https://www.ninsheetmusic.org/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi1111.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fh475%2FBespinben%2FSuperPMD%2520relic_zpsttxvboic.png&hash=64a47bb5681d11561b4eddfc0d1cfa18) (http://s1111.photobucket.com/user/Bespinben/media/SuperPMD%20relic_zpsttxvboic.png.html)

Whaddya think? Plot implications? or just conveniently shaped like a Bronzor?
(I do think there's some symbolism to the 6 circle-nodes on the design though... maybe we'll have something like "finding the 6 sages" sort of quest like OoT)

OH OH OH!

In Gates to Infinity, Hydreigon mentions there being OTHER Voices of Life, besides just himself. Perhaps to restore Petrified Pokémon back to normal, you will have to gather the energy from each of the (six?) Voices of Life....!? :o (Eek)

PMD2 Explorers confirmed for SuperPMD


On the Japanese Twitter page, there's a quote from the in-game Kecleon:

(https://www.ninsheetmusic.org/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi1111.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fh475%2FBespinben%2FsuperPMD%2520treasure%2520town%2520reference_zpszf7vg5rs.jpg&hash=7ace9adba8a7f76b61a64a5862ff2383) (http://s1111.photobucket.com/user/Bespinben/media/superPMD%20treasure%20town%20reference_zpszf7vg5rs.jpg.html)

This is what Google Translate spits out:

(https://www.ninsheetmusic.org/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi1111.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fh475%2FBespinben%2FsuperPMD%2520treasure%2520town%2520reference2_zpsohuhvtsk.jpg&hash=2e8bd202e952d1e80fce6b6eaac17d24) (http://s1111.photobucket.com/user/Bespinben/media/superPMD%20treasure%20town%20reference2_zpsohuhvtsk.jpg.html)

In short, Kecleon is wondering if "Ruriri" and "Mariruri" are in good health.

"Ruriri" and "Mariruri" are the Japanese names for "Marill" and "Azumarill", so we KNOW that the Treasure Town mentioned in the quote isn't just ANY coincidentally-named "treasure town", but THE ONE AND ONLY Treasure Town. Interestingly, in PMD2, they two weren't that Evolved yet -- they were just Azurill and Marill.

THEREFORE, Super Mystery Dungeon takes place AFTER the events of PMD2.

So, those new CoroCoro scans.

I have to say, I'm more excited about the Ampharos having what I assume to be a large role (something that approximately translates as a 'team leader'. I really fucking love Ampharos, and his/her art has a bitchin' pose.

Oh, and that new Mega Evolution mechanic is cool, too.

They promise more stuff in the next issue. So....

Translation of scans (credit to Reddit (https://www.reddit.com/r/MysteryDungeon/comments/3gg3jb/pokemon_super_mystery_dungeon_corocoro_scans/)):
Spoiler
First Scan


There's Mega Evolution in Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon!?

In Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon, you can enjoy adventures countless times, and the battles are awesome as well! With Mega Evolution, the common sense of dungeon exploration has changed!!

Caption: Mega Evolving will raise your stats even further!

Evolution surpassing evolution!!

Conquer dungeons with Mega Evolution!!

Inside dungeons, once certain conditions have been met, your Pokemon "awakens"! Certain can "awaken", and Mega Evolve, powering them up, and changing their look, type, and ability!!

Caption: Charizard Mega Evolves into Mega Charizard X!!

Of course! In battle you're mega strong!!

With Mega Evolution, your stats go up, and you can attack multiple enemies at once! Even if you're surrounded by enemy Pokemon, it's ok.

Caption: Defeat several Pokemon at once!

Caption: With Mega Evolution, there's no enemy to fear!

Even mega destroy dungeon walls!

Mega Evolved Pokemon can even break dungeon walls.

Caption: A dead end...!? But with Mega Evolution, you make a way through.

Caption: Destroy walls, and open a new path! Enjoy exploration even more!

New items: Get even more powerful with the Lapis and Ringle!!

The Ringle is an item Pokemon can hold. The Lapis power you up, once set in the Ringle.

Find Lapis!!

Caption: Lapis can only be found in dungeons. They disappear once you exit the dungeon.

Caption: Using the "Power Up X" Lapis, the power of your moves goes up! Use it well to become stronger.

Defense Up

Caption: Lower the damage taken from moves. Equip multiples to stack its effect!

Many different effects!!!

Combo Protect

Caption: Useful for when you're hit multiple times in one turn. Lowers the overall damage.

Second Scan


Welcome to the Pokemon Investigation Team!!

In order to achieve their dreams, the protagonist and partner enter into the Pokemon Investigation Team! Go on a grand adventure across the world with your colorful teammates!!

If it's an adventure, then leave it us!!

Caption: Don't miss the varied personalities of the appearing Pokemon!

Ampharos: The Team Leader Even though she's the leader, she suffers from extremly poor sense of direction... Althrough she's an airhead, the team member trust her greatly. She's a reliably Pokmeon.

Buizel: Investigater In charge of underwater exploration. A reliable senpai who protects the main heroes.

Jirachi: Astronomer Although he's a genius, once he falls asleep, it's hard to wake him up. His sleeping posture is terrible as well.

Mawile: Archeologist An archeologist, but also a seasoned adventurer. Like Ampharos, she's also a deeply trusted.

Archen: Investigater In charge of sky exploration. He has a very helpful personality.

Bunnelby: Investigator In charge of underground exploration. His special skill is digging with his ears.

Swirlix: Waiter Is in charge of the food, but he's always sneaking food.

Dedenne: Messenger The Investigation Team's messenger. Sends messeges back and forth between team member using his electric waves.

(By the way, I'm not actually sure about why gender they all are. I'm just guessing Ampharos is female because they use the pronoun "watashi" in their speech, while Buizel and Archen use the masculine "ore", and Jirachi uses the boyish "boku")

MY COMMENTARY! You'll notice in the 2nd Scan a picture of the Expedition Society members in a meeting of some sort. I noticed the Bronzor-esque symbol I reconstructed from the 3DS cover plate reoccurs here (which I boxed in red)!

(https://www.ninsheetmusic.org/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fi1111.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fh475%2FBespinben%2Fexpeditionlogo_zpsoq3lhzil.jpg&hash=fce52b16739ec8a25d39dc4b5437acaa) (http://s1111.photobucket.com/user/Bespinben/media/expeditionlogo_zpsoq3lhzil.jpg.html)

[close]

Looking closely at the new image, I'm thinking the symbol actually bears more resemblance to a Poké-ball than anything else. I never did understand how Poké-balls were sometimes cameo-ed in PMD (like in Blue/Red Rescue Team, where one of options Smeargle paints on your Team Base flag is a Poké-ball), so I'm hoping SuperPMD will give some closure on that mystery.

I'm so glad Meloetta is the art for that jukebox--that was one of my favorite characters from Gates to Infinity and I was sad it wasn't used much. I loved how Meloetta went back between aria and pirouette form and called them "princess" and "prince," that was really charming and cute. It's one of my fav Pokémon

A Super-Sized file size of 1.8 GB.... I am not disappointed.
Comparison
The fact that PMD 3DS is a game of 1GB size means that it has quite a bit of data compared to most 3DS titles, more so even than Mario Kart 7. The point? They put a significant amount of work into the game, and perhaps the world itself is fairly large and expansive. Maybe we'll even get to go more places than just randomly generated dungeons and the hub town.

ORAS was 1.8GB as well if you need a straight comparison

Opinion-wise about the game, so far it's looking like the game will be just as easy as GtI sigh
some of the broken mechanics seem to be back, in addition of new ones like reusable sleep wands .-.
Hope they'd know how to balance out the game properly this time, like removing stupid mechanics starting w/ Agility

GTI wasn't all that easy if you played the post game or DLC hard mode dungeons. The enemy learns the team skills as well and it makes items like petrify orbs useless in the later part of the game because of it. I wouldn't be surprised if the new additions both help AND hurt your team in a way

The uploader of the music responded to my inquiry:
Quote
The song is from one 3DS Theme based in this game, the starters one :)

I had totally forgot how back in July (http://serebii.net/news/2015/04-July-2015.shtml), the 2nd 3DS Theme (http://www.nintendo.co.jp/3ds/bpxj/_img/privilege/subbox03_pic01.png) was revealed as a Japanese pre-order bonus. I then remembered that NEW MUSIC would have to accompany the download that 3DS Theme, a fact that was specifically advertised in the following text bubble from the newly redesigned SuperPMD website (http://www.nintendo.co.jp/3ds/bpxj/privilege/index.html):

(https://www.ninsheetmusic.org/forum/proxy.php?request=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nintendo.co.jp%2F3ds%2Fbpxj%2F_img%2Fprivilege%2Fsubbox03_copy.png&hash=368d654b97f72d4221ea344cda92384d)
(Notice the acronym "BGM" [i.e. BackGround Music]?)

So, the music upload is legit.

Furthermore, just listening to the music itself, you can immediately tell it's 100% authentic. The melody at the beginning uses the same motif from the Title Theme, and several PMD GtI instruments are used (most notably that wonderfully ethereal music box towards the end). No soundfont rip exists for Gates to Infinity yet (and probably never will, since it's not MIDI-based), so the only conclusion to make is that this is undoubtedly an actual OST from the game.

(I still can't find the original Famitsu article anywhere though...)

I think it's worth mentioning that the dogmatic "best" of the series, Explorers of Sky, got a 35/40 (lower), while the fandom's spit-upon step-child, Gates to Infinity, got a 38/40 (higher).

Honestly I'm rather nervous for this game since it got a lower score than GTI. I Loved that game a lot, but after being incredibly disappointed with Pokemon X and Y along with Pokemon ORAS which got similar scores I'm kinda concerned PSMD is just going to be meant for people with too much Explorers Nostalgia, with boring characters and a story that doesn't make sense with most of the attention going to solely making explorers fans shut up (Similar to the Genwunner treatment in X and Y with the Kanto nods everywhere). I'd love to know WHY they gave the game a score of four 9s to be more specific, because now I'm more nervous it'll be a disappointment due to all this waiting in suspense

This so much. Honestly, when I read game reviews, it's not me deciding my opinion, but trying to understand the (sometimes questionable) logic of the reviewers.  I'm fascinated by pathological social behaviors.

I think at least one reason why a game (like GtI) would get such polarized review scores (IGN's 5.5/10 versus Famitsu's 38/40) is related to cultural preferences. Dungeon crawlers in general aren't very popular in the West, but they're all the rage in Japan. Thematic elements could also play a factor. I couldn't help but think that the whole concepts behind things like the Voice of Life or the Bittercold stem from some sort of archetype in Asian folklore (perhaps Yin-Yang?).

Looking at the Japanese SuperPMD site, it looks like there's going to be ANOTHER NicoNico livestream to show off the game one day prior to release:

http://live.nicovideo.jp/gate/lv233983457

I know at this point, most of us don't want any more spoilers than we've already gotten, but if I can just get a peek at the Staff Credits to finally learn who are the composers, I'll be content until the US release.

Finding this bit of info out while undercover at my school, it seems that PSMD will have over 120 dungeons, around double the amount of GTI and Explorers and three times the amount as Rescue Team! Makes me confident about the post game although I dearly hope they aren't rehashes from Explorers to satisfy the nostalgic fans. Even the rescue team dungeons I don't want to see over done, as I prefer new content. Getting excited as it the game is out in only two days in Japan!

Sadly the odds of a special episode for the game at this point are the same odds as an Articuno themed movie being made

(in other news, part one of my PMD retrospective is almost done, and should be out before the JPN release. It almost killed my computer's hard drive due to it being four hours of footage getting edited into one hour of a retrospective but I'm determined to finish it. One hour, reviews for three separate Rescue Team related media, along with history on the games (and my own past due to how important the game was to me personally). Get ready if you can handle my strange voice.

Explorers will be the next episode but it will only cover Time and Darkness and the DVD so it will be MUCH shorter. No manga and not much history in this one, that is saved for part III which covers Sky and Squad.)

why so much hate for explorers

Honestly while I may have mentioned it briefly before I can't really say the entire reason why. Eternal Memories will cover that but even then I don't think I can quite explain what made it hurt my feelings so much. My biggest guess is being hurt at the many "WHY THE HECK DID YOU NOT DO ANYTHING" situations in the game where the characters act really, really stupid. Especially Officer Magnezone, I hate that guy more than most people hate Chatot. Gameplay is fine, music is fine but the story really drives me nuts for some reason, despite me being in love with it when I was younger. I'm guessing Ys V's story about stopping the collapse of time by going to an ancient hidden land to restore the balance of time before bad guys use it to corrupt the present made me realize that Explorers had quite a few faults due to the characters making that story not as well written.

Man, that's quite a different music style compared to the other ones in the series, but I daresay I currently like it the most. Either super ethereal or super dramatic.

Glad to see that the remasters/remixes didn't disappoint. I was concerned about that. Love the amp plains, mt. steel. Nice return of many things I liked. I really do miss the old style, though.

Quote from: bulbapedia
The size of a party is limited to four in Pokémon Mystery Dungeon, compared to six in the main RPGs; furthermore, players are only able to directly control one Pokémon: their own character (or, later in the game, any other befriended Pokémon). The player's teammates are essentially autonomous, with player control being limited to general strategy such as avoiding Pokémon battles or not moving and staying in one place.

The soundtrack of SuperPMD has a rather unique palette. The following song uses a balaban, a double-reeded Middle Eastern instrument. Other ethnic instruments have been part of previous PMD OSTs (most notably the bagpipe), but this is a very interesting development indeed. The file name of the song is "BGM_EVE_SCENERY", so I can't help but imagine it's the new "Bubbles Shining Over the Sea".

The first dedicated English TV ad for Super Mystery Dungeon released a few hours ago:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gDfu-MshPuE

I was kinda hoping for something more zany (like the Japanese ad from months back), but I guess playing it safe is okay. Not a big fan of the voice-over though -- sounds too mechanical.

At least it isn't "Polka-mon" like they used to call it in the first few episodes of the anime dub. That really drove my crazy.

Overall I think the commercial is good, better than the other NA ads, but not as good as some of the ads from other regions for the older PMD games.

As frivolous as this makes predownloading the game, I'd recommend waiting until after your recital. Unless the recital is no big deal, in which case play for an hour or two Thursday night. :)

My reason for predownloading wasn't so much so that I could play it at midnight, as that I wanted the theme that came with predownloading lmao i'm such a nerd.

Recital I am anxious about because even though I'm only playing a couple things (it's not a Just Me recital; it's a student recital, and I'm performing solo piano as well as piano and trumpet with the jazz band) I reaaaaaally want the piece to go well and I want to ... not fuck up the jazz band too. So yeah I'll probably wait it out.

@dude honestly either red/blue rescue team or explorers of time/darkness/sky are some of the most fun and best mon games there are. spent quite a bit of hours on them as a kid. you could also start with this one, although i hear it's pretty difficult. but the series is great.

They're good games. If you dig the main Pokémon games then absolutely play one. But the storylines are almost entirely about friendship and the effects of being positive and working together, which is really heartwarming and uplifting but also a little cornball. So if that doesn't sound like your thing, definitely steer clear lol.

Post by: Altissimo on November 19, 2015, 06:06:37 PM

Explorers of Sky. Not even Time/Darkness, just Sky (which has extra, significant, content). Not only is it a fair bit easier than the first (whose postgame has a ridiculous difficulty) but the plot is far better, in my opinion, and overall has a lot better worldbuilding than the first game(s).

The first game I love for nostalgia value, but without that it's kinda mediocre. Enjoyable especially if you like absurd difficulty, but not polished as well as Sky.

You can't go wrong with any of them, tbh, since they're all essentially the same game. The DS ones have very low quality old-timely graphics (GTI and I'm guessing PSMD are absolutely beautiful) so I'd probably recommend getting this one on Friday or GTI if you can find it cheaper. When/if you decide to play Explorers, skip Time and Darkness like Altissimo said and just play Sky.

Eh, I wouldn't call the graphics a significant reason to skip. The pixel art in Time/Darkness/Sky (Especially the extra scenes in Sky) is quite lovely. Red/Blue are a little iffier because they're the same game but for GBA and DS, and the result is that the DS version looks rather... not-DS lol. But if graphics are a reason not to play, nobody would ever play Red/Blue/Yellow! :V

Well, I'm just saying, after playing X and Y for me it's pretty difficult to go back to anything older. I tried replaying Sky a couple months ago and couldn't get very far because the pixel stuff was so blurry unless I played at original resolution, which is really small lol.

On my way back from my Japanese class my grandmother picked up the game. I got to hold it before having to return to school...

...that box art is the prettiest I've ever seen, hands down. Beat Ys IV: The Dawn of Ys in that category. The back is really nice to look at, describes the game just fine and overall everything looks great. Even the game card looks amazing!

I do miss the days of a strategy guide, and the days of manuals to read before playing (you only get a slip of paper telling you how to use the digital manual and a sheet with the theme shop code), but I'm still impressed regardless. It looks very pretty and as I type this in my school's study hall I'm filled with anxiety as I await going home to play the fifth chapter of the PMD series... The final chapter, it's likely this one, so I hope it's worth the wait, and dare I say good enough to give to my future children and have them give to their future children and so on.

I got picked as Snivy twice and Turtwig once (I had three separate personality analyses but two different Pokémon wtf this quiz is probably super complicated). Finally I got fed up with the quiz and just manually picked Treecko with Froakie as my partner.

I've played the first hour and a half and I love it. I don't remember the writing being quite this funny in the other games (I'm belly laughing a lot at the partner character).

All this talk about the game is making me so hyped! I won't be able to get it for another week though :/

From what I heard around on GameFAQs, there aren't many opportunities to grind (which is another reason why the story is shorter than let's say PMD2 because there is less goofing off time)
Title: Re: POKÉMON SUPER MYSTERY DUNGEON
Post by: K-NiGhT on November 22, 2015, 07:37:19 AM
yeah there is like zero grinding time. It's super easy to get underleveled. It makes the last part of the game extremely difficult.

Speaking of which, I just hit Chapter 22 and man this story does not let up one bit! It's such a crazy ride from the second half on. For those of you who are still pre-Chapter 10, hold out! It's about to get better real soon!

I forgot about the release date and didn't pre-order it, so now it's coming on Tuesday. I'll get to play it over Thanksgiving break. :)

For some reason I still haven't ever played Red/Blue and GTI. Maybe I should. I know most of the story of Red/Blue and a good portion of GTI, but maybe I'll try them regardless.

Less grinding time? As in, less forced grinding time, or less grinding time completely? Because in Explorers, after the first few story missions, you could grind as long as you wanted before moving on with the story (the only exception that comes to mind is Spacial Rift, but you could store everything in the Kangaskhan Rock and keep grinding and dying).

Imma play through a second time too once I'm done.  This is GREAT.
Also the reason there's less grinding time is because you can only do so many missions until the story starts back up again, and once the story starts you can't go anywhere else but to the story location.  I think I did maybe 20 expeditions in all.  Probably less.

Speaking of which, I felt like it was a neat idea and they pulled it off as well as they possibly could have, but it was still a little bit bulky to use imo.  I also thought it was strange that you connect to people once you kill them, but maybe that's just me.  Hey, it works better than the old method.

For some reason, my favorite partner Pokémon are always the Water-type ones (except in Sky, in which I always choose Meowth as the partner). Imo, the partner's personality in Pokémon Super Mystery Dungeon seems very corresponding to a more upbeat Pokémon like Froakie or Chimchar than Pokémon like Turtwig or Bulbasaur.

Chapter 8 spoilers
I'm almost through Chapter 10 now, but I just wanted to say that walking around Serene Village talking to NPCs is the best part of the daily routine besides checking the Connection Orb. Like how the villagers will talk about sudden random kind things being done for them, but no one being around, after Litwick and Solosis have been defeated. Or how Croagunk and Corphish will talk about Explorers stuff, or Emolga asks you for help rescuing Dunsparce. I feel like PSMD does a better job than any of the others of making you feel immersed in the world of Pokémon, too--games like Rescue Team and Gates to Infinity felt very isolated in their environments, but the sheer variety of Pokémon on display here gives me a very involved feeling.

Well I beat the story, and am still working hard on 100%ing the game. Regardless I feel I know plenty to be able to give this a proper, full review, so here's (http://www.seafoamgaming.com/pokemon-super-mystery-dungeon-3ds-review-t376.html) my written review on PSMD for those who are interested. No story spoilers, but I do talk about the gameplay mechanics a lot, just as a warning. Was definitely worth the wait, and honestly I don't think any game in 2016 may top this for me (if any game at all, to be truthful. We'll see what the future holds and if PMDVI ever gets made.)

Post by: mastersuperfan on November 26, 2015, 03:54:06 AM
I got PSMD yesterday and started it today with a boatload of HYPE! Team is Riolu (Superfan) and Snivy (Flora), and I've just finished Chapter 3. I actually love the story so far, even though some parts are a little bit cliché in the world of PMD, and it's definitely a unique change from Red/Blue and Explorers (though I can't say much for GTI since I never played it; maybe I should).

Spoiler
I'm glad I picked Snivy for a partner, since I've always imagined her as mischievous and adventurous, which is especially so in this story. Maybe it's the small bit of Poképark 2 that I played at a friend's house a long time ago.
[close]

As of now, the music hasn't particularly stood out to me... but I'm hoping that will change. I've heard great things about the soundtrack. In general, this game is looking up right now, and I'm hoping it won't disappoint me. Maybe it'll be better than Explorers.

...Oh, who am I kidding? Nothing can top Explorers.

I finally got through that damn Sheer Mountain Range (I reached 12F and died, so I had to go rescue myself, then finally finished the last two floors) and it's convinced me that Drifloon is maybe the worst Pokémon in existence. Sorry Nebbles, but Unburden lets it deliver two Minimize back to back before I even approach it (for those of you counting, that's 4x evasiveness up), not to mention two damaging attacks at a seemingly random pace. It made life hell, especially since I'm a Grass-type Pokémon. (So many Flying-type Pokémon in there...)

Unburden really is a stupid ability.  Just wait till you get to the part where a camerupt enters the room and uses earth power, ohko'ing you out of nowhere from 20 tiles away.  TBH the dungeons get nearly impossible without emeras, so make sure to pick them up.  Some of the best ones are Guard Boost, Barrage, Lullaby/Dizzying Stare and Power Boost X/Y.  Also, hax works really well in this game.  I beat 75%% of the bosses by spamming mud slap even though I was underleveled.  Flinch hax works pretty well too if you have one of the fang moves
...Oh, who am I kidding? Nothing can top Explorers.
I was thinking the same thing and your opinion is actually wrong, trust me

your review was pretty good, I feel like it explained the game well, there were a couple typos if you care about that, and the one thing I saw that stuck out was when you said every time you died it was your own fault.  There ARE cheap shots in this game(such as unburden, room-wide moves, a particular move called bulldoze, and hax) and it is easy to get underleveled especially if you're bad at the particular game (like me).  I didn't really catch up until about chapter 16

I seriously hate this line of thinking, especially considering you've only got through 3 of like 23 chapters. The whole community is immediately comparing this game to Explorers and basing whether or not they purchase the game on said comparisons.

Also, about the emeras, am I the only one who kept 'using' them instead of setting for a while? <_< *feels pretty derpy*

I was thinking the same thing and your opinion is actually wrong, trust me
If that turns out to be the case (as what I've heard a lot of people say or at least agree to PSMD and Explorers being equal to each other), then that's awesome!

Chapter 12 spoilers
I am laughing so hard I can't believe the first eleven chapters were setup for a new version of Wigglytuff's Guild. We've got a nice cast of characters so far. I just finished the throwback Jirachi battle at the beginning of Chapter 12 (I was laughing even as Jirachi KO'd me--isn't this the third time Jirachi's been fought in the exact same way?) and while I won't have time to continue until tomorrow, I can still speculate. My theory from the beginning, that I hope is wrong, is that Nuzleaf and Carracosta are somehow bad guys. I really have no idea how the Beheeyem tie in to all of this though, and now it's the Ampharos / Mawile / Dedenne trio who's striking me as suspicious. Who knows. Either way, I'm having a good time, and I exchanged gold bars for a couple Gold Looplets since everyone here is telling me I'll need them lmao. Maybe I'll try to work out the system.

I actually would like to know the typos if possible, as fixing them is a big priority for me (I use spelling and grammar checkers but of course they aren't perfect). Glad you enjoyed the review! As for the cheap difficulty in some spots, I do agree room wide moves are a pain, but for me personally Quick Guard managed to protect me against those moves, along with carefully planning out the use of items to beat up those difficult Pokemon before they can use them. I actually never had an issue with Unburden personally, but even if I did that's what the Truant Wand is for thankfully (it erases the ability). It's still super tough, but compared to other Roguelikes I've played it's nowhere near as frustrating or cheap IMO.

If you want to hear the whole story of that original playthrough, (and to see the future episodes in the series when they come)
Not 100% about this one, but I believe the comma should go after the parentheses in this case.
Quote
Is it worth preordering if you are in the PAL regions? (Which gets the game on the 19th of February)
same deal here
Quote
The Pokemon Mystery Dungeon series is known for it's detailed and captivating stories
should be "its", not "it's".
Quote
However, this game still has a lot of new assets added in as well, most notably the rest of the 720 Pokemon who were either absent or didn't exist when Gates to Infinity came out, some minor changes to the menus along with the nice variety of locales and cutscenes to look at during the gameplay.
I think you should have an "and" before "some minor changes" because atm it's sounding like a run-on.  You've got it set up as a list rn.  You could also say, "some minor changes..." "and a nice variety.."
Quote
this world looks gorgeous, and is a sight to behold especially during some of the longer cutscenes!
could use a comma or hyphen before especially
Quote
(noisycroak Studios, to be exact!)
is noisycroak supposed to be capitalized?

I think that's about it.  Keep in mind I'm not an english major or anything so your grammar in some cases could be correct and I'm just reading it wrong.

Am I the only one who's getting a lot of Mario & Luigi RPG and Professor Layton vibes from this game? The former especially in the menu, and the latter especially

Chapter 8
when you go through Ancient Barrow, trying to figure out some deep, creepy ghost mystery, and you have this majestic but spooky music playing.

Chapter 8 (minor spoilers at most)
I'm reminded a lot of Mario & Luigi RPG simply in how much this game makes me laugh -- though I think the writing and gameplay style overall is much stronger in that other series. And yes, the Ancient Barrow music is very Laytonesque. :) some of the chapter plotlines, including Chapter 8 / 9, remind me of the smaller mysteries that the Layton games have you solve throughout (such as the mini-mysteries in Chapter 4 of Azran Legacy, Black Raven in Last Specter, or Tom in Diabolical Box).

Chapter 14
I had to take a break when I hit Chapter 14, since I've been in the car for hours and my 3DS is going to die soon (curse the New Nintendo 3DS battery). Very fun atmosphere so far, but there's something that's absolutely blowing me away: for the first time in any Pokémon game that I can ever remember, I'm getting anxious for the point when the story is over and I can enter sandbox mode. I've certainly never felt a drive for the post-game of a Pokémon game, especially not a Pokémon Mystery Dungeon game. But the day-to-day missions and the deal with completing the Connection Orb and so forth is just so much fun. I'm definitely going to go for all 720 in the post-game. In the meantime I'm listening through the Jukebox in the meantime through headphones until my 3DS really does die. Such a lovely soundtrack. I can't believe that I agree with Spike Chunsoft's boasts of this game being the "ultimate Pokémon Mystery Dungeon game"--while I thought the title was stupid when I heard it, it's honestly very fitting. Well done, Spike Chunsoft. I can't wait to play the rest of the game.

Gates to Infinity -- Tries to be unique and gets outcast as "too different from the originals"
Super Mystery Dungeon -- Tries to callback to traditional themes/motifs and gets called "unoriginal"

..and that's where I have difficulty weighing your heavy-handed opinions with any credibility. PSMD is a stand-alone game in that you don't have to know the others to enjoy the adventure (though knowing such does enhance it). However, to make a valid criticism of PSMD's story, plot, themes, and motifs (as you have attempted), one MUST know the history and development of those things in the context of the Mystery Dungeon series as a whole, not just in comparison to the singular microcosmic pinpoint that is PMD2 Explorers.

As someone who's only played explorers of time and PSMD I can say that I have no clue what you're talking about.
As an addendum you have nothing BACKING your claim.  The Expedition Society IS similar to the guild, but since I've only played the two, I assumed it was natural for a pokemon mystery dungeon game to have a place that EXPLORES MYSTERY DUNGEONS.  If the other 2 games don't have one that's their fault.  The only things I've seen from explorers is casual remarks referencing it-certainly not plot themes.  Wigglytuff and Ampharos?  Nah.  Wigglytuff I feel genuinely knew what he was doing and just acted that way to put people off guard.  Ampharos is genuinely scatterbrained.

Ampharos is still my favorite character and my favorite scene is still when you see latias and latios- is this what you were referring to Insig?

although I doubt it's specific to that dungeon. I took some videos, and I'll upload it to show you guys.

I have no clue as to why this happened. It started on F2, presumably after an encounter with a Sawk, and proceeded to persist for the rest of dungeon.

Epilogue
Wtf

How did I not cry at that ending

I've cried every single time I've played through Explorers

Except this is so much sadder

"It's not you who has to leave... It's me."

By this point I can't at all imagine anyone other than a Snivy named Flora taking the place of the partner

I do wish they brought up the plot point of the possibility of you returning to the human world earlier (as they did in Explorers, where you knew that you were going to disappear before you saved the world), which would give a more profound emotional impact when the big plot twist happened with your partner being Mew and having to disappear. But maybe that's just my nostalgia speaking.

Meanwhile,

Post-game
I've started the Mew quest, gotten through the first Sand Dune whatever dungeon with a bunch of tries and a huge amount of Wand spam (not the Stayaway Wands though, saving those), but considering how useless Flora the Snivy was during the main game (after looking over forums now, people seem to say that Snivy is the weakest starter .-.), many would say just to ditch her after I get her back.

But, well... I couldn't do that. <3

At least that explains why Flora kept getting one-shot in every dungeon and did peanut damage. Superfan the Riolu at least did walnut damage and got two-shot instead a couple of times.

I wish we could change to Hidden Abilities. Then Flora could be useful with Contrary-Leaf Storm spam. :/

All right, I think I will.

The reason why I'm conflicted is because I've already done a lot of preparation for endgame shenanigans... But I should know by now not to get too attached to my save file.

Besides, Explorers never did a good job of keeping me around for long after the endgame. The lack of story and characterization in the post-game made the world seem so dull and boring...

I'm definitely picking Snivy for a partner again (even though her power level is garbage-tier). Should I pick Riolu again for a starter?

My Cyndaquil's named Phosphor. It's just stuff that's luminescent. Also shows my interest in chemistry and all that.
Partner's Snivy. Named Tsuga. Named so because "Tsuga" is the Japanese word and is the genus of the hemlock tree. I grew up on the west coast, so I've seen them a lot. Gives me a nostalgic feeling. Also a pun on Snivy's Japanese name, Tsutaaja.
The team name used to be Allumage, the French word for ignition. Chosen because Bespinben suggested something that sounded like a fine wine. It refers to the creation of the fires of friendship. Then I misread it as "Illuminati". So now, the Illuminati is trying to recruit every single Pokémon.

I don't believe so, from what I heard online. I restarted right after that anyways, so I wouldn't personally know.

I think the dialogue is more well-written in this game, and the levels of suspense and feels are both higher in my opinion. However, PMD Explorers has a more coherent plot overall.

Partner's Theme reminds me a lot of His Theme from Undertale.

Mostly because it also seems to be mixed in quite a few other themes.

Spoiler
Especially the final battle theme... that hit right in the feels.

I heard that using a Ban Seed to stop Recover is a good strategy. Try that.

I don't know about Endeavor, but that would break the fight completely if it did work. I hope it doesn't, actually.

oh, that should work!  Basically, I was bringing 20+ reviver seeds to the fight and I kept spamming alliances and he would take plenty of damage, but then he would use recover and gain 900 (?) HP and I cried

I NOTICED THAT TOO
I just ignored it tho as I don't think it did anything...

Sawk's Rock Smash pounds open the wall and expands the size of hallways and rooms -- that's why you encounter some rooms that are weirdly shaped and why the hallways are so wide in Reverse Mountain randomly. I only know this because I happened to walk by a Sawk using Rock Smash on the wall. So it's not a glitch.

Chapter 21
Just beat Yveltal and saved at the chapter break. I've gotta be through with the story soon, right?

Title: Re: POKÉMON SUPER MYSTERY DUNGEON
Post by: SlowPokemon on December 09, 2015, 05:40:41 AM
Well, I beat the game (through the staff credits, anyway).

Spoiler
Overall this game felt more epic in scale than any of the others. And certainly the gameplay is leaps and bounds ahead of the others. The music is on par with what was in Gates to Infinity, and the graphics are even better. But the plot I felt was probably the weakest of the four games. It just felt so impersonal, like I didn't care about most of the characters much. The plot twists felt even more "dramatic soap opera" than usual, and for once I don't even mean that as a good thing--the story started throwing twists one right after the other to the point that I got really irritated. It moved so fast that I didn't really feel anything. Idk, at least I have a fun-looking post-game ahead, but the narrative was pretty lame considering what we've seen before. Good game, but in terms of plot, didn't work for me very well. That's just my opinion.

perhaps you should play through it the second time.  At first when all the plot twist stuff happened I was like oh come on that explanation is lame but when I played through it again, so many little things jumped out at me and it just made so much sense.  I'd recommend it if you thought the story was shaky

Don't get me wrong, I definitely enjoyed the plot :D I just thought of the four games, it was the weakest one. I'm not trying to rag on it because I honestly would call this my favorite Pokémon Mystery Dungeon for the gameplay and quality of execution alone.
Title: Re: POKÉMON SUPER MYSTERY DUNGEON
Post by: mastersuperfan on December 10, 2015, 10:46:31 PM
The plot's not very coherent, and there are a lot of loose ends everywhere... Plus, there's the dominant issue of the first half starting really slowly and the second half being a big story dump. But, I think overall the story is very touching. I personally didn't expect any of the plot twists.

If anything, the dialogue is very well written.

what I do is when it shows you the codes, press the home menu, click on the miiverse icon, click save a screenshot or whatever, then tap the picture of the qr code/bottom screen and save it.  Then go to the miiverse on your pc and find the image and copy its url.  Embed it and presto you get a fancy QR code like mine

Well, I wouldn't be opposed to a re-release or DLC of the previous games in 3D. Although I don't think it's likely that it would ever happen.

Progress from my no-reviver seed run of this game:

It seems to me that Spike Chunsoft seems to now have a pretty good idea of how to make Mystery Dungeon games, so I don't think a possible successor would be of bad quality. Although I have been disappointed once before, so...

Quick question: in the game's sound files, what's the one called "BGM_DUN_22_OLD"? I don't recognize it.
Nvm, it's Glacier Palace - Eastern Spire. I can't believe I didn't remember it, was probably overshadowed in my memory by the Great Spire music.

Someone should use the PSMD town rips and put them in Zelda OOT somehow. I'd love to see a Zelda game using the PSMD towns, even though it's as likely of a dream as PSMD getting redbook audio remixes

I'm still working towards 100% slowly but surely... So slow that one of my IRL friends who's not that good at video games somehow beat me to getting the Silver Badge. I'm wanting to take my time since I fear this is the final PMD game and I want to make the joyous experience last.

Honestly, if I had a 3DS Capture device and another PSMD copy I would probably go speedrun PSMD just for fun. It just seems so easy to do, since some routes could be used to skip the mission days and make the story move faster, plus some items are broken as heck. I could easily see PSMD being as popular as BRT in the Speedrun community if interesting tricks are discovered.

PMD will never be popular among speedrunners because it's so RNG focused

Sorry if this is a bump, but I do have a question for all you PMD veterans.
Super Mystery Dungeon is the first game I have bought in the series (plz don't kill me), so I need some suggestions on how to beat Poliwrath River.
So noob alert aside, I have Tepig (Me) and Mudkip on my team and was wondering what a good strategy would be.
I made it to the end once, but stupid Round got me pretty quickly..
Thanks!

Post by: Nebbles on May 14, 2016, 06:13:18 AM
Hey, it's fine to have Super PMD as your first game!

First things first - are you properly stocked on Oran Berries and Reviver Seeds? Those are really essential. If you're having trouble, grind in some older dungeons to get some levels before going back and trying again.
Title: Re: POKÉMON SUPER MYSTERY DUNGEON
Post by: braix on May 14, 2016, 06:31:45 AM
Don't bother with oran berries. They never helped me, not when every freaking pokemon in the dungeon would do twice my max hp with a water cannon. You never get to use the oran berries and your reviver seeds get wasted.
Get warp wands and stayaway wands instead, take the pussy way out.
Title: Re: POKÉMON SUPER MYSTERY DUNGEON
Post by: mikey on May 14, 2016, 07:48:34 AM
Oran berries are actually quite good in multiples
Title: Re: POKÉMON SUPER MYSTERY DUNGEON
Post by: DocDoom2 on May 14, 2016, 04:52:01 PM
Thanks for the tips!
(Again noob here) I didn't know you could return to previous dungeons, or rather, didn't bother to check!
My problem was probably going into it with 2 Oran Berries 3 Reviver Seeds..
Thanks again, I'll let you guys know when I beat it! xD

every time you eat an oran berry your hp goes up by like 10, so I just gorge myself on them as soonas the mission starts.

So I thought I was pretty much done with everything important except for the epilogue in this game. While I'm listening to the music on youtube, I keep seeing videos of legendary quests. I guess I won't 100% this game for a long time. But this new discovery is making me want to play the game again!

How can it possibly be fun to replay when the story is so predictable?

I guess sound test is reasonable though.

The only reasons I find it fun to replay the game is that you can have different characters, hear the music in action,

remember the fun life you had before you left

, and doing some personal challenges. I was really considering restarting the game for those reasons but I really want to complete this game 100%

Post by: Nebbles on May 29, 2016, 06:45:38 PM
I'd replay Super PMD if there was more non-story segments - like either you hardly progress in the story or you have no free time to level up in dungeons, and I disliked that.
Title: Re: POKÉMON SUPER MYSTERY DUNGEON
Post by: cashwarrior1 on May 29, 2016, 06:49:11 PM
I haven't played any of the other MD games but I found this to be extremely fun and had very few flaws. I felt like there was enough segments to play around between story moments. Well, now that I think about, you had more free time during the "child" portion then the actual story came.
Title: Re: POKÉMON SUPER MYSTERY DUNGEON
Post by: Nebbles on May 29, 2016, 06:59:44 PM
You did, I think, so if I do replay it I'll grind during there. But also the missions with the orb thing seem like they don't shuffle or randomize on subsequent playthroughs, which would really take out the fun if it was predictable.

I'm taking ages to play through PSMD, mainly because that happens when I watch a let's play of a game, then play it.

As for my opinion on the ending...
I don't like it when they put plot twists right at the end of a story, after the conflict has been resolved, because usually it feels like they were put in for the sake of making the ending sad. I have a similar problem with Fullmetal Alchemist (2003) and Klonoa: Door to Phantomile, although moreso the former.
