And it's especially awesome when Nintendo sends you two more Pokemon at the end of the night. I open my 3DS up and it has a little blue dot on it, I get all giddy.

Why does DS Pokemon Music sound like lame Cell Phone song?

I opened up my 3DS after coming home from class/groceries and I had 3 streetpass thingies and new pokemon! Double giddy!

Precursor to them actually making a 3d pokemon game? If it were any other company i'd say yes but Game Freak have been milking that same engine/format for 13 years now with minimal improvement. My hopes are low.

Do you need the SpotPass settings on "Yes" for the downloading new software for this to work? Or does it just work anyway? 
 
Ideally I don't want my 3DS downloading loads of random demos I don't need...

I enjoy this app way more than I should.

Love how over the top the music is.

So the existence of these 3d models and animation sets pretty much points to a real pokemon game coming right? I would hope it is a real update/upgrade to the main games and not some side game ala Snap or whatever.

That's the Pokemon Black/White theme.

Looks okay :/ but I guess I'd be more hyped if I was way younger. Pokemon is enormously fun though, I just don't know about a stand alone pokedex.

Pretty cool for free.

Is this app as useful as bulbapedia?

if collecting pokemon cards was still popular this would have been epic.

Pretty awesome, I imagine the pokemon models belong to a new Pokemon Stadium game being developed. Ain't no way they release 150 nice looking models for free, that's a lot of work!

150? Dude, there are like 649 pokes now or something insane like that.

I thought the trailer stated 150, as in, they only have the current generation pokemon added to it. Might be wrong though =P Much too lazy to go and check!
 
It'd probably make more sense to include all of them if they have the assets around, but who knows with Nintendo!

But what about Koffing?

Yeah, it's only the newest 150, which in my mind makes this thing a complete waste of time.
