It’s difficult justifying paying double the money for a game with half the content of previous installments while other AAA franchises push the boundaries of the Switch.

So...just to note, Game Freak decided that one of the surviving Pokémon showing up in Galar was Wailord. Read more

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

This is the worst take. Sorry that you’re so blind you can’t see that GameFreak skipped out on multiple things they said they wouldn’t. Read more

Exactly, thats why I’m not buying it. It’s the most expensive Pokémon game to date and on the most advanced hardware it’s ever been on. They shouldn’t get a pass.

If it’s not self-evident to you that customers deserve to not be purposefully misled by companies wishing to sell to these customers, I’m not sure how I’m gonna convince you. This is Integrity 101 we’re talking about.

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. The animations, the graphics, the staggering amount of cut content (and the bad excuses GF gave for it). I mean, if you are Read more

Yeah its only double the price as last time, we should be grateful that we can’t use our favorite Pokémon.

Basically the model controversy stems from the fact that Game Freak officially said that the reason for so many Pokémon getting cut from the game was due to an emphasis on making new models and animations. The leaks revealed that they reused the same old 3DS models, proving that they lied about the reason for the cuts.

I will leave this right here and you be the judge Gita if this gets an overall pass just because Pokemon: Read more

So if more than half the Pokedex is gone, the plot hasn’t improved, the animations aren’t that good, the user interface isn’t really improved, the evolution mechanics and the like are still rather obtuse, the characters aren’t memorable, the game’s pretty easy and you can’t change the difficulty, and the environments Read more

Over half of all existing Pokémon were cut from the new game, including the very recent Alola Region monsters, and the only starters from previous games returning in any form is Charmander’s evolution family.

The cited reason was to improve models and animations, but they’re still reusing the same DS assets with Read more

That’s such a bizarre excuse. How much dialogue does The Witcher 3, The Outer Worlds, Mass Effect have? It’s not like they’re speaking complete sentences - they’re literally just repeating their names. And they’ve got the anime, where they’ve already got voice actors doing this very thing.

Its not about 100% the pokedex, It is about being able to play with your favorite pokemon, and by judging by the cut pokemon, a lot of people will be missing their favorite pokemon. For me it was blastoise.
