Ok, what i'm going to say could sound a bit odd, but i have to write it down: i don't really dislike the design and i'm happy to see the show will continue (even if i would probably drop the show, not the fandom when the gen 4 ends), but i really don't know why they choice this style for the new generation.

I mean the gen 4 had one feature that gave him potential: it was a god mix between a cartoon and a somewhat realistic fantasy style. I use to play a lot of GDR (not forum RPs or videogames, i mean pen and papers GDRs like Dungeouns and Dragons) and there are a lot of peoples who use pony characters in their adventures (gen 4 has even his own GDR) and the good thing is ponies with the 4th gen design are somewhat accepttable, both in design and concept, even in a more seriuos fantasy world with the right changes. I even run a campaing as master using them as a race with a party who know nothing about the show and they haven't nothing to see about them or on how they looked, but if i had presented them with this new design they would probably laugh at me.

Seems almost as they wanted to downgrade the show because it was getting "too realistic", i don't want to ramble more about this or offend anyone, but they almost seems as someone first attempt to make an OC.

Not really a big fan of the whole "take these already super-popular characters and change them up a whole lot but make sure they're basically still the same characters"…Personally I would like to see them shift focus to other characters, whether it's in the same continuity or not. I can see why they would keep the same M6 names though- name recognition.

That said, pretty sure G5 is still early in its planning phase so we don't really know what'll happen until it does. Should be some reassurance, I guess.

And even then, FIM has an established Magic System and a way to go with ot. The prior generations, minus G1, didn't really have a fixed System, and was loose at best, Deus Ex Machina at worse.

To be honest, I always felt that the current generation's take on magic has typically boiled down to "a character makes their horn glow and something plot-relevant happens". It never really seemed to me like an internally consistent magic system was ever established — what characters can and cannot do often changes quite wildly depending on the needs of the plot. I don't think that this is a bad thing, necessarily, because I don't feel it really hurts the show, but I wouldn't say that FiM has an established magic system of its own.

G5 doesn't Tell us if Earth Ponies have magic powers, or if they can use magic.

No information G5 has even been officially released yet — all we have is an extremely fragmentary collection of preliminary data, unfinished character designs and setting and storyline concepts that some hackers stole and dumped on the web. G5 doesn't tells us what powers earth ponies have because there hasn't been any official release to tell anyone anything yet — blaming its writing team for the gaps in material that was effectively stolen from them doesn't seem very fair to me.

G5 may derail Everything just for Hasbro to bandwagon off G4, which currently smacks of Intentional Sabotage!

If I can be honest, that seems very paranoid. Why would Hasbro want to deliberately sabotage one of its main sources of profit?

Hasbro mandated the use of various G3 names so they wouldn't lose the trademarks on them. The same is happening for G5 but there are a lot more important names this time.

Yes, but that was a terrible time.

G3, and the accompanying G3.5 were not very Well Thought out. The character designs looked derpy at best, or were down right freaky.

And even then, FIM has an established Magic System and a way to go with ot. The prior generations, minus G1, didn't really have a fixed System, and was loose at best, Deus Ex Machina at worse.

G5 doesn't Tell us if Earth Ponies have magic powers, or if they can use magic. We have had these Characters for Eight Years and have gotten used to those girls! G5 may derail Everything just for Hasbro to bandwagon off G4, which currently smacks of Intentional Sabotage!

@NLTLF
Now you're just trying to put words into my mouth.

You're assuming that I'm talking about things being based upon race, which it isn't.

It's more so about character design and how a character has been fleshed out. I mean since Fluttershy's been a Pegasus for what, nearly 8 years now, it's completely fair to associate her as being a Pegasus who prefers to live on ground level to be closer to her animal friends.

And I can tell where you're coming from. But I'm not going to bother getting into a "debate" with a SJW about that hogwash.

But the bottom line is.

Don't just assume you know what people are thinking or meaning or whatever, it only makes you look like a moron.

@chubbyninja89

it just sounds like firm logic to me.
"pegasus" isn't a personality. just like "black" isn't a personality, or "girl" is a personality. their personality can stem from the identity, or how much they let their identity affect them, but the identity, by itself, isn't the character.

@NLTLF
I'm talking about how you're trying to say I shouldn't define the character for being a certain race of pony, despite that character being well established as that race.

"you mean to tell me that what kind of horse the character is defines, or rather, is their personality"

That sounds like some SJW nonsense to me.

@NLTLF
Quit trying to turn this nonsense into a chance for you to rant about a bunch of nonsense.

The facts are, that G4 has been the longest of all MLP series, and I don't know whether or not that means a ton when you consider the other series. So it's fair to say that Friendship is Magic is what we can and will use as the grounds for looking at the characters and such.

okay, giving you hints certainly hasn't changed your mind so i'll just go right ahead and say it. what kind of horse a character is wouldn't actually affect their character. fluttershy can still be a loving caretaker with a bit of social anxiety as a unicorn, rd could still be athletic while not being a pegasus, pp can be an entertainer while having wings.

sure, what they do with their time might differ because of it, but their personality and character could stay mostly the same.
