    Remind me, is there any argument against 6v6s beyond the amount of time required to set up teams?

    mostly I'm just thinking that 90% of 3v3 battles will end with one dude predicting wrong and not possessing a viable counter to one of the other guy's killy sweepers and bam the game is over before it begins

    I'm really curious about this.

    3v3s just don't seem like they would be as much fun.

    isn't 6v6 also usually decided by one or two pivotal decisions whose significance isn't immediately noticed

    As long as I don't have to grind and dudes to anything higher than 60 I would be ok with whatever we end up doing.

    No fucking way I would go to 100 though.

    Best of 3 is a good idea, 3v3 is usually very quick so it shouldn't take any longer than a 6v6 battle

    Wonder Launcher? I don't know. Change is scary! Using items online? I just don't know

    Think about the problem like this

    if you had only 1v1 pokemon matches, there would be almost no strategy whatsoever. Matches would essentially be decided before they even started, just based on which pokemon the players brought. If you brought a Slowbro and they brought a Blissey, they're gonna win. If you brought a Blissey and they brought a Machamp, they're gonna win. No two ways about it. There's no point in playing a 1v1 match, because excepting some bizarre fluke the outcome is decided at the outset.

    so, the closer you get to 1v1, the closer you get to a game that there's no point in playing

    3v3 is closer to 1v1 than 6v6 is.

    the wonder launcher though is an idea I think is really cool and I'm curious to see if it makes battling more interesting, so I am 100% in favor of trying it out

    Totally agree. Where do you think (6C3 V 6C3) * 3 fits on the spectrum

    I have no idea, and I am hoping it's closer to 6v6 than 1v1

    well I mean 6C3 alone is 120 possible combos out of just whatever your 6 pokemon going in are

    multiply that times 3? 360 possible combos with only six pokemon is pretty damn good without getting into the math of possible pokemon choices per team

    The changes to wifi are objectively bad. I am pissed that I bought this game, basically under false pretenses. I already had a game that I was having fun with on the single player and I'm going to get DA2 soon. I never would have bought this game if I had known I would only get to enjoy the single player mode of it.

    do people not understand what the word objective means or something

    look it's not like i'm not upset, I had a team of 6 pokemon planned and ready to go for this damn game

    and i bought it without doing any research as to how the online play worked

    but this game has been out for a while, people in north america have had it a while, and they certainly knew how the online worked. If any of us had bothered to look, we would've known this long ago.

    If that's the case, why not make that an option, along with the classic wi-fi settings and 6v6?

    it's absolutely a step backward in functionality
    I still think we can have fun with this video game
    that is for fun having

    maybe it's not the fun we were expecting
    maybe we won't have AS MUCH fun as we thought we would, or for as long
    but it's still pokemon, the single player was already worth the price of admission in my opinion
    whatever blood we squeeze from this stone is a gain
