      Same thing happened in Gen 8 when Reddit went ape over the dexcut and started noticing the issues they previously tolerated.

      Nothing will change. If anything, GF profits even more from negative press.

        The ones bitching about bugs aren't the majority. Most are just laughing and loving the game in all its jank. Hopefully the bugfags fuck off just like the dexitfags.

      Anon, TPC is as much to blame as Game Freak, maybe even more so. They're the ones who run the franchise. Hell, if Nintendo cared, they would have stepped in years ago.

      People will buy the next game anyway.
      Just like Madden
      Just like Call of Duty

      This. People still bought S/V, and despite the backlash, I don't see anyone demanding refunds.

        why should they step in/care if sales continues to do well? it'd be funny if sales became so bad that they would consider having to step in and embarrass gamefreak.

      This is a systemic problem. It isn't GF that entirely decides their schedule and budget (although they could always ask for more). The ones who make those decisions are higher management.
      Everyone is to blame for the current state of Pokemon, and tossing it off to another studio is not a panacea. People in upper management need to realize that they need to either go back to 2D if they want to be cheap, or invest way more money if they want to stay 3D. It's one or the other.

        Anon, WHO the fuck do you think are the "Higher ups"? Nintendo just partially owns the rights to Pokemon, they are not Pokemons principle developers. TPCI was created specifically to manage GameFreak so I supposed you can argue that they're the ones in charge. But ultimately, GameFreak is given free reign since the games are the biggest source of profit for the franchise and TPCI isn't going to deny GF a proper budget over it. Besides they're too busy managing merchandising and everything else. The problem is Shigeru Ohmori and Masuda are like the Japanese versions of Todd Howard. People with much larger visions than means to pull them off.

          Nintendo and Pokemon Company are still the ones who decide things like budgets, just like EA or Activision or Bethesda decides budgets for various smaller studios.

            There's just no way, when each game sells around 16 million copies, that's a massive profit margin.

              You underestimate merch sales too much. A normalfag family will what, buy 2 copies of a game for their kids? And then they're gonna buy a bunch of stuffed toys and other paraphernalia for their kids. There's a reason why a something like Winnie the Pooh is way bigger than companies Rockstar and Activision even though the latter 2 sells a bazillion copies of their games.

      If S/V wasn't followed up from Legends and instead had another stinker going from SwSh - > Trash -> BDSP -> S/V, it absolutely would've affected sales. Obviously, not a bomb, but S/V being so successful is because it was riding the coattails of Legends and normies thinking it would be more of that, but bigger.

      At least Activision has the common sense of dividing their titles between multiple studios and every instance is high standard.

      I'm going to guess because the games were marketed to have a similar level of polish as a game like BotW and when that turned out to not be the case it caused a kneejerk reaction. Think about it, if SVs marketing was more honest about its graphical quality, people probably wouldn't have been as upset.

        the idea that the tards defending dexit gave was that it would make the games better, ignoring the fact that it did not make swsh better, they're still shit, so maybe that's what it is?

      Tiktok gave everyone high functioning autism if you think about it. The timespan between the last games and now was when Musical.ly died and Tiktok took off, then we got 3 years of people having their heads fucked with by the algorithm. Many of the mass populace are now spergs who activated to resist the conditioning to varying degree's or brainwashed

          Yes but Tiktok popularized it. Social media wreaked havoc on many people's mental states but none have been as chaotic as Tiktok. Twitter users are only deranged because Tumblr users were exiled after the porn ban and merged with them. Discord is full of pedophile/grooming echo-chambers, Facebook is used by boomers and millennials lurking on increasingly ironic shitposting pages. Tiktok is an combination of them all based off data harvesting and conditioning. Human beings were not meant to process such information without something going wrong

      I think it's pretty simple. GF has been successfully tempering expectations up until this point. But with this game we got a bunch of changes casuals were not ready for. Seriously minimized clothing options works against the dress-up aspect of these games a lot of casuals liked, and having the selfie mode probably just makes them with they could play dress up even more.
      The games have been SUPER hand-holdy since Sun and Moon. And while this game does keep you on rails for far too long before opening up, it then just kind of expects you to explore and figure things out. This is the opposite of Sword and Shield which was linear as fuck. And finally I just don't think the new gimmick is exciting to people who aren't looking at it form a mechanical perspective. It's not marketable. It's not really cute or cool. Terastal pokemon are just kind of goofy, but practical from a game play perspective. I don't think surface level players are going to find it as appealing as a powerful unique move, achieving a new form or growing gigantic.

        Anon....gen 1 was actually a fairly non-linear game. In fact, I'd argue Red/Blue/Yellow are unironically less linear than SwSh were.
