    No I do too, but I wish it was a true love letter to the Fighting type instead of adding shit like Gardevoir and Gengar. Should have been pure fighting with a few fighting adjacent mons like that westling cat

      I thought so too, and I still think Hitmonchan & Hawlucha should've been in (maybe Buzzwole too), but the spread of types lead to extremely varied and fun characters that wouldn't have been possible in any other fighting game.

      I'm a MaCHAD though, with Croagunk on the side for memes, so if it was all-Fighting + Incineroar I'd be fine.

        I liked a good amount of the roster and think pure fighting would have been too limited. But several of the choices they used sucked and we're clearly just for shilling. Fuck Charizard, Pikachu (both versions), and Mewtwo (both versions).

        I'd be fine with "fighting adjacent" pokemon like the ninja frog but why the fuck is Gardevoir in when Gallade is right fucking there or Suicune but not Poliwrath. Hell guys like Scyther/Scizor deserve a spot over shit like Chandlure

          Scizor is in too though. Also Gengar & Gardevoir are super popular, mostly humanoid, and were even both in that fangame Type Wild from many years before Pokken.

          Gardevoir mogs Gallade in popularity so hard, it will never get into a spinoff game before Gardevoir.

          I assume they picked both popular ones, and ones that would've been more unconventional for a fighting game character.

          They specifically didn't want to have the roster just be a dozen pokemon that looked and played like bipedal dudes. Why bother making it pokemon at that point if you're not going to lean into it?

      Hard disagree. That is such a boring move. Granted I would trade in Pikachu Libre for Hawlucha any day of the week but Pokken has some genuinely inspired characters with unique movesets like Darkrai and Scizor who arent fighting types at all. Why limit yourself to a small subset of the pokemon roster simply because of typing?

        That's why I keep harping on "fighting adjacent" but maybe I should say bipedal humanoid pokemon. The game has some wild ass choices but they're wild in the wrong way like fucking Suicune

      Fighting is thematically the most boring type. It takes a very special monster concept to do anything cool with it, and like other anons in the thread said Pokken is better off with a more varied roster with inventive playstyles.

    too many people thought the plane switching was too weird and it died for it. the number of mechanics attached to it don't matter if the majority of people think it's still too clunky or it halted matches too much. also the lack of single console versus back on the Wii U tanked its interest at events due to the absurd cost to support it

    Pokken was the last pokemon game I had fun with clover being the one before that. Gamefreak could easily make a game with at least 150 pokemon and have models and animations just as good as pokken, but consumers are retarded and keep on buying low effort entries.

      They added several additional characters to the arcade version, did a Switch port that fixed the multiplayer (and had the arcade characters + other new ones) and then did more DLC characters on top of that.

      If your comment of "don't add any content into it" is referring to modes in general, that's a fighting game problem, not a Pokken problem.

          As far as new modes, the most important one is they made local multiplayer not a piece of shit since you can now easily play on the same console (with split screen, but it's better than the Wii U's offerings).

          There's also some gimmicky stuff like a KoF-style team battle, and a myriad of online stuff like Daily Challenges.

            The 3v3 mode is cool since it kind of works like real Pokemon rules where you choose your next Pokemon after you lose your first round instead of locking the order in. The Pokemon World Championships also use that mode in tournament, it's more interesting I think.

            Also made it have a LAN mode that honestly lets you run a real switch + an emulator for the split screen. It's more or less what I've done.

      It did get updates though. DX added the arcade characters and then got DLC (Aegislash, Blastoise, and some assists), the community stuck to it since it was part of the Pokemon World Championships. Also:
      >Conquest
      >Snap & New Snap
      >Orre games
      >Ranger (I forget how many of them are good but at least one is)
      >Pinball RS
      >The TCG RPGs on GBC
      I've been looking into the Pokemon TCG lately since I've heard about how it's cheap to get into and the SV meta might be the best in a long time, makes me wish we got more games with it as the focus.

      It's far better than it should be. It's a unique mix of Tekken-style 3D fighting with some moves that lock you into a 2D plane for something temporarily closer to a traditional fighter. Each pokemon is well animated with a moveset that feels good and has unique quirks. It's simple enough that you can just hit buttons based on vibes and do alright but with room for mastery.

      I think the main reason it never really found a scene is that fighting games are already niche and this is an even smaller niche, not anything to do with its quality.

        I feel like it failed for two reasons. 1) Most of the FGC wouldn't be caught dead playing it (see TFH) and don't take it seriously. 2) A lot of the Pokemon fanbase are either too retarded for fighting games or shrivel up at the thought of anything competitive or PvP related. Without being able to appeal to either side, it's clear why it never did well.

      Machamp isn't bad in Field Phase though. He has decent projectiles of his own, armored approach options off of Bulk Up, and his jump Heavy that just zooms over and bonks them on the head to whiff punish anything into Phase Change.
