    No, but it was better than SV simply for the fact it wasn’t a broken buggy laggy shitfest. Even if the graphics weren’t crazy high quality, they were polished about as well as any other Nintendo game.

      Broken Ugly Lagfest describes sword to a T and Sword doesn't even have the excuse of trying to do anything actually intensive.
      Even the towns look like shit outside of a select few angles(and most of them are amazingly linear and still manage to fuck it), you still get jarring optimization and shit textures. Pokemon models were low quality with goddamn sticker mouths that stuck out at most angles. And the game runs at a horrific resolution like SV as well.

        No it doesn't, and you are pathetically lying cuz your Ganker bros told you to be mad at the game.

        Don't worry OP, I miss SwSh too, and these old fucks will seeth badly as time comes and more people who are too young to be part of their hivemind pop up here. Watch them EMBARRASINGLY try to shit on SwSh is always funny because every complaint they try to bring up was true in one of their baby boy games anyway.

    As a single player experience it’s painfully bad. Worse than Unova even.
    However, the Pokédex selection and the battle arenas BTFO SV so hard, and those are two of the most important elements for post game battling enjoyment.
    So unironically, I would enjoy it if SWSH was still more active, because I’m done with SV, and so are most of my friends.

        Considering how laggy/glitchy/uninspiring the battle stadium and UI are for SV, it makes some sense that the player base would be somewhat active. Graphics-wise, while SV has Galar’s overworld beat, the actual battles are no improvement graphically either.

            not him but really its not, b2w2 mogs bw1 so hard its impossible for me to go back to, and bw1 just feel so short and rushed plus i feel like its the first game in the series where the amount of stupid online shit in it was detrimental to the game especially since its been discontinued, b2w2 at least has a shit ton of singleplayer content to compensate for this

            The story is popular, but Unova's world in BW1 had basically the same complaints that people now have for later games (too linear, not enough content). BW2 added much more.

              BW has so many side areas and side quests though that put modern Pokémon to shame. Linear on the surface. Even though the dex number was small at least everything was new so it felt like you were playing a unique game.

    Your pic was definitely a moment I enjoyed in SwSh but it didn't last long.
    Some of the environments were quite charming because you can see they spend time on the details since they knew exactly what you'll be seeing because of the fixed camera.
    But SV are better games on every aspect except the character design and music, and those are subjective.

      >those are subjective
      There is a limit to subjective though. SV pretty clearly failed to make it's character designs come across due to the rather bad choices on rendering and texturing. Compare Professor Turo's 3d model to his 2d model and it's clear they fucked up badly, along with other cartoonier details like Larry's eyes and Giocomo's face that just don't fit well with their choices.

                Give me some examples because I think you're going schizo. Some mons have two + HA, some have one + HA, and some just have one
                So unless you mean "makes sense" in the same way you would say "Wugtrio has no ability that makes sense with what it's trying to accomplish", I still don't see the point.

              • 3 weeks ago
                Anonymous

                Ditto and Blaziken were conceived before they got their broken HA, so they wouldn't just remove the old option for no reason
                Though Ditto is unusable without Imposter;
                1. that's unrelated to Limber because Limber is definitely a good and fitting ability
                2. TWO whole items only work when Ditto is not transformed (though both were cut in Gen 8)
                Cincinno has both Technician and Skill Link as usable abilities
                In the end only Azumarill qualifies because Thick Fat on a Water-type Pokémon is indeed some epic GF trolling, especially when the alternative is so, so powerful.
