    Oy, I remember my first time trying to navigate Lumoise city in the game. I got lost so many times just trying to get to the Pokémon Lab! I don't even know what half of the buildings do in Lumoise, and I'm pretty sure you need some kind of guide or map just to know where everything is. Does anyone else have this problem with the city of weird fixed camera angles?

    Lumiose City is the scariest city for me. It is definitely too big. I've been playing Y for a year now and I still don't know how to get around. Plus, the cross between North and South Boulevard has a really long pause in my opinion. Lumiose City please. Get smaller.

    I just take the cab. And even then, I have no idea where I'm going.

    I rarely go there anymore. The last thing I could possibly have cared about is now too annoying for me to contemplate.

    I sometimes get's confused by the layout, especially after I have taken a longer break from the game. it would be a lot easier to navigate had they given us an in-game map just for Lumoise city.

    I somehow remember where everything is. Must be a skill of mine :P
    To be honest, I would like more cities like Lumiose, but maybe without the radial design.

    I've gotten ahold of only two avenues in Luminose, everything else is pretty foreign to me! It definitely is too big, and that was proven when before the patch if we saved there it killed our files because the buildings were too large to load. Size it down a little Nintendo! T_T

    I really like Lumiose City. It feels more realistic that I'm actually exploring a city when it's big, unlike the other cities which have like 3 to 5 houses. I also found it pretty easy to navigate around Lumiose. Maybe it's because I've played the game for so long as well. It also kind of reminds me of Castelia City, my favorite place in BW :)

    The camera angles ARE annoying, but I love Lumiose city! There's so much to explore, and it feels much more realistic in terms of portraying a city.

    Like what Rafael said, it feels more like a realistic city as big as it is. If I didn't know where to go I would just look up a map online. I already know how to get to the few places I visit it for now though.

    I used to think Castelia city was too big.
    And then Generation 6 came out.
    Maybe Lumiose city is too big, or maybe not. I think it's a nicer to have a huge city than a small town with a few houses, a gym, a pokemart, and a Pokémon center. The only downside is the whole thing with Lumiose city crashing your game.

    I agree with those who say it's more realistic, yeah. I have a vague understanding of where a few places are, but I usually just take a cab so I don't have to bother with navigating it by myself. I don't think it's too big though.

    I don't think that Lumiose is too big, it's just really hard to navigate because of the way that the city's made. I mean, the circular shape of it makes it really hard to get around... >_<

    Eh I don't think is too big is more realistic, I think is just because of how the city is designed in a circle. If I get lost I usually just take a cab.

    The only concern I have with Lumoise City is the camera. Sometimes it gets stuck in an odd position, giving you a hard time in the process. Lumoise is cool, though it doesn't beat Castelia City.

    For me it isn't necessarily the size, but the way everything looks the same. Castelia City on the other hand had landmarks. It's easier to remember "there's an ice cream shop. Go down the pathway to the left of it to get to this building". It felt more realistic than a huge radial city where every building looks just like the one adjacent to it.

    I'm not complaining, the fact that it is so big is a plus for me, it still feels like I haven't seen the whole city yet. But maybe they should lable the places where you need to go a little bit better. As long as we're not getting anything larger than this, Lumiose City is fine with me :)

    It's borderline. The worst thing about the big cities is trying to remember where X items are in other runs. \:

    Lumiose is definitely huge I find myself using the cab to find out what street things are on then walking to them myself because I'm to cheap to pay them to get me there.

    I can never find my way around Lumiose. Even after spending so much time in it during the post-game.

    Lisandre wanted to shrink the city but now he is probably death thanks to you players >:(

    Lisandre did nothing wrong!
    Luminose is too big!
