Hi?

Hi Ganker. I'm a developer at TPC, mostly for QA and localization bugfixes, and wanted to give some insight on Scarlet and Violet.
>production of the game started in 2020, but it was in the concept phase as early as 2018
>development teams were stretched between three segments of the studio, who were working on Legends Arceus, Scarlet/Violet, and Kami (codename).
>a prototype was shown to the developers sometime late 2020, around when we were coming back to work after the pandemic.
>the prototype was basically a laggier version of the wild area, but much bigger, with sprawling caves and river systems, and a cyclizar-like creature you could ride.
>terastalizing was pitched and added around summer 2021, and was being debugged in about 3 weeks. a lot of the discussion was about "how can we make these designs look good for the TCG?"
>LOTS of content didn't make it into the game. over 20 pokemon got cut, including paradox forms. Some included a barbaric Weavile, a robotic Meowth, and the DLC legendaries.
>character designs were scrapped mid development and were designed around late 2021. lots of NPCs suffered because of this.
>early versions of the game included many more uniform choices, including skirts, but were cut due to Area Zero's crystal reflections.
>tons of glitches were being discovered all the way to the time the game went gold, but the production team was rushing it out the door.
>toby fox showed up multiple times to the studio, talking with the development team about game design.
>scarlet/violet were planned for a mobile release with nintendo's consent, but was cancelled early due to technical limitations.
>upper management only cared that the game release "working," and seemed more concerned about merchandise and TCG sales.
>expect another patch in the next couple weeks, and a DLC announcement in January (filling out the unfinished content, hopefully.)

    I choose to believe this, even if it isn't true because it's retarded enough to make sense.

      the team did the best we could, but as features kept getting added late into development there wasn't enough time to fix everything. there's a lot of "we can fix it later" discussion by the rest of the team.

            No idea. I'd say it's likely though, character designs were changed late into development. Most of the concept art was done by interns shadowing Sugimori, and generic NPCs were designed using random elements blended together based on a set of internal models.

              Thanks bro, hope they don’t do the thing they did with the generic npc again, just hope they make one model for each type and reuse that one like old games

      I could see gamefreak/creatures wanting to release a mainline on mobile (they didn't believe in the switch at all), but nintendo? they'd absolutely hate it since it would drive sales away from the console, so that by itself makes the whole story op made faker than it already is

        I'm not sure if it would've been a direct port, more so a playable "simplified" version of the game. Think FFXV Pocket Edition.

        Showdown's animations are arguably better than in game. They're only a fraction of a second, so I actually keep them turned on. Meanwhile, in game animations are so slow I disable them the first chance I get.

    When you say they only cared about the game "wroking" that means they were very aware of the broken state the game is right?
    That means they are not afraid of a massive backlass like with Cryberpunk or Sonic 06 and the like? Do the higher ups REALLY have a "they'll buy it anyway" mentality?

      Ask on Twitter and buy the blue check mark before you do it gets better results. If they dont respond make a fake Nintendo account with Twitter blue and make some normal Nintendo tweets then say something about how everyone who bought scarlet and violet at release will get a 20$ eshop credit to compensate for the buggy release so people spam the real Nintendo about it.

      Honestly I'd believe it at this point. OP's Lies or not. It seems obvious with multiple mobile games and and multiple motherfucking Facebook games that Gamefreak just wants to make bottom of the barrel mobile trash that even the most smoothbrained normie could enjoy to milk them for all their worth. Gamers are not the main audience of Pokemon, hell not even kids who are into video games are the main audience anymore. The main audience is the modern Gen Z normie who needs a screen in front of them almost 24/7. It doesn't matter what they're doing as long as they're being stimulated. Gamefreak does not want to make real games anymore they want to make a Pokemon version of Cookie Clicker that was cobbled together in less than a day and make billions off of it.
