How should I go about making my pokemon-like game?

Well, as some of you know, I am working on a similar game to pokemon and I have a question I'd like to ask anyone interested.
Do you want it 2D (easier on me)
or 3D/2D like the screenshot in the upcoming games section:Similar game to pokemon, anyone?

Getting enough attention for this game? Try to keep it all in one thread

I didn't think it was appropriate to post it in the upcoming games section and can you add a poll to an already existing thread?

I'd enjoy 3D, but whatever is easier. You could keep it classic at 2D, I wouldn't mind at all. As long as the gameplay beats the graphics.

edit: yes! Make it 3D like pokemon DPP!

Maybe I should have been more specific.
What I meant by 3D was 2D/3D as in pokemon DPP.

If you can make the 2D at least half as decent as Zenonia then I'd rather that than any 3D.

I agree, i'd like 2d if they were like zenonia or the old pokemon games.

Do you mean 3D like in pokemon diamond or pearl? If so, only use 3D for landscapes, keep the creatures and characters 2D. :/

I didn't really like the 3D style in DPP. I think I like the old 2D style better.

It'd be cool if you could allow full directional freedom, but I don't know how possible that is.
