I love how you talked about dynamaxing. The Mega evolutions were a really cool “gimmick” and added a very exclusive and worked towards layer. Z moves were just unnecessary to me and dynamax other then the raid battle is almost a waste of resources. Cannot wait to try the game for myself though.

Plays for 90 minutes and spends seven minutes talking about how the tutorial is skippable. That says a lot.

How delusional are you? If you are good at lying to yourself, this is cool, but this is not what the fans deserve. I liked the last game on the switch. It had charm. This looks rushed. No idea how quality control let this through Nintendo. If you compare it to Fire Emblem , it seems as if the developers either don't have pride or think we're stupid. And they have my money. Don't be stupid, too.

I’m a bit confused that people want major changes to Pokémon NOW, when the series has always been about tradition. As far as I can tell, the haters are just butthurt that they can’t collect all 9,976,000 Pokémon and the graphics aren’t up to par, and yet they haven’t actually played the game and take leakers at face value.

The fact that Monster Hunter can reinvent itself leagues better than Pokemon really fucking puts the nail in the coffin for this game for me.

I've been playing Pokemon since it first came out on Game boy. As long as as graphics don't go backwards, who gives a fuck? 900p, 1080p, HD! As long as it ain't 8-bit and flat, 2d shifting monsters, Who gives a fuck?! The fuck are y'all complaining about? The game looks amazing! It's not 2d or 2.5d anymore, so let's enjoy the first open world style Pokemon game!

So is this geared more towards the casual player? Or can og player still expect the same technicalities of the old style? I didnt like lets go eevee it felt too geared towards noobs.

There were far better looking and running games on the 3DS than anything Game Freak made. They hadn't quite figured out how to optimize their 3D games and make the most of the hardware and they still haven't. It still looks way better than any of the 3DS Pokemon games, but I'm certain it could have been done on the 3DS with similar performance by more talented developers.

Dragon Quest Monsters did "open world" a long time ago, while gamefreak has barely started going towards that direction.

I get the feeling that these games are like the "stepping stones" towards the Diamond and Pearl remakes, similar to how X and Y suffered because of time limits due to Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby coming out soon after

*Gameplay:* -Less pokemon -Less moves -Exp share is now permanent -Your pokemon get easily over leveled -Most leaders have only 3 pokemon -Only 10 routes -Wild area is a lot more empty than it looks -You can only fish in designated areas *Story:* Let's just say it's Disney level of predictable

Dude ive been waiting for forever for 2 things. Either our own gym or defending our champion title. Both would be easy af to integrate. Hell for defending the champion title just put in a random mix of higher and higher level pokemon as you beat more and more challengers. Thrown in the mix will be some of our older characters such as red, gold, green, etc.

Summary Normal start Less Tutorial Rival chooses weaker starter (like Hau in sun/moon/ultra sun/ultra moon) Level up in first Pokémon battle with rival Starter learns a move that is that same type as itself in first battle Less annoying things that explain things you probably already know Possibly avoidable tutorial parts *So good so far* Non main characters still remain lifeless Better cutscenes Wild area doesn’t seem like most pokemon (apparently good thing) Wild area feels like a real world Raids are interesting Dynamaxing doesn’t have enough tutorial (new for Pokémon because usually there is too much tutorial) Dynamaxing is still going with the theme here is something cool and new Unimpressive from a technical point of view Better than the Alolan Pokémon saga Bad quality but really good for Pokémon Game seems average Really good game overall Functional vs presentational Presentational the game isn’t that good. Fictionally it’s amazing.

Sorry but I think there is no sugarcoating or not talking about the national dex. I still don't believe their claim that they built all the models from the ground up. It just doesn't add up. If your going to make all new models? Why not at least make the pose different? They look like uprezzed 3DS models with a fresnel rim lighting effect/filter added to give them a greater sense of volume. Then there are the animations. If the animations and models actually looked different? Then I might be willing to think otherwise. I am not going to call Game Freak lazy as I am sure the devs are passionate. But I do feel like not having a national dex is a cop-out. I do feel like a lot of the things they are adding as "gameplay" are little more than gimmicks. Pokemon getting bigger is likely going to be a gimmick that will be removed in the next game like Z-moves and Mega Evolutions were for this game. At least Mega's changed typing and added a bit to the Meta. The other problem I have is...they say making all the pokemon in the game is too much work? Well then why continue creating new regional variants of existing pokemon. That's part of what I believe to be; why the game is so hard to balance. The other thing is they keep talking about how you can transfer your pokemon to pokemon home where they will exist. The problem? They haven't told us squat about Pokemon Home, how it will really work. The thing is, it's a one way transfer. Once you transfer those pokemon to Home; those that can't be taken into sword or shield become useless in this nebulous vague Pokemon Home. I'm not saying the developers should be personally attacked or harassed. But they must have known that the community would not like the decision. What they have effectively done is split the community in the same way COD did with it's map packs and other b.s. And as far as "It's fine, it's pokemon" is indicative of why Gamefreak can coast by making only incremental improvements. It just seems like people have low standards for game freak. And that's why we get things like 720p 30 fps, and muddy textures. Pokemon is the highest grossing franchise and it's ok to put out muddy textures (i.e. the trees.)?

Not making a complete mess of the tutorial is one of the best things to say about this game? Ouch. Poor game, poor concepts, poor execution by the looks of it.

I'm not surprised that the graphics are "average" and I don't care either; it's the first game on a new console, so cut them some slack. Honestly we should just give them more time next time around, tell them it's alright if they skip a year. Tell them that we care more about the quality than the frequency, do a real KSP2 on'em. Oh and on the national dex thing; couldn't really give a shit to be brutally honest, couldn't give a shit.

I'm not cutting them any slack, since that's their excuse for cutting content. they are the ones making the decisions they need to give themselves more time.

With the GameFreak argument about using 3DS hardware to the max, you gotta remember they've been developing Pokemon games for the DS since like 2006. That's a long time to get used to a platform. They've just started on the Switch. However what I don't get is how Let's Go seems to be better looking than Sw/Sh.

What I’m saying is is that the haters are overreacting and that anyone else angry about this game is expecting too much from a series like Pokémon. And besides, so long as the game isn’t bad, what’s the problem? If the game is fun, it served its purpose well!

I feel like people expect too much out of this game on the technical side. It’s the first mainline Pokémon game on the Switch. They’re still figuring out how it works, so I feel like it should be ok to give some leeway on this entry. If this quality consists in future games on the switch, THEN we can get mad.
