Eh...judging by various threads and discussions about the interwebs... not really.
I just wish the game sucked less. Is it really that unrealistic to expect more from a 90 billion dollar franchise? The fact that this game will almost assuredly still sell millions of copies is the most depressing part. Half-brained fans will gobble this crap up and just accept mediocrity, when it could be SO MUCH…
Everything I’ve seen about this games looks so... subpar. Like, people are giving Gamefreak a giant pass just because the game is pokemon, even though this seems like a very lazily made game.
