      It has to be the dumbest most braindead idea both in concept and in-game.

      FPBP except the embarrassment is only beginning, hats sounds even worse somehow.

        >that envelope
        being in a MUGEN-type Smash mod isn't really something to brag about.

          For Pokemon, it's more worth bragging about than being in the actual Smash games.

    best gimmick they’ve made so far because it’s not retardedly tied to items and it actually increases the skill ceiling in PvP.

    also the gigantamax designs are legitimately good, I hate grimmsnarl and duraludon with their regular designs but their gmaxes are some of my favorites.

    Meh.
    I feel Mega evolution was cooler.
    But for a game mechanic it was kind of cool.

    Personally I'd like to see it return but drop the GIANT side of it. Just have them be "surged" or something Press a button pokemon goes kaioken has the same effect as gigantimax without the giant looks.

    As a dynamic it was boring.

    But many of the Gigantamax designs were perfect for being treated like giant Pokemon (Nobles, Totems, Titans) being part of their environment and serving as bosses.

    For example it would have been funny somewhere in the story if we had to climb a big tree to get an item relevant to the story, but when we took the item the ground moved and we discovered a gigantic Snorlax that went into combat mode.

    Or for example that at the beginning of the story we were warned not to enter the forest at night since there is a troll prowling the area, and when we ignored that, the trees began to move and the earth trembled we entered a escape sequence (Dodging obstacles) and if we fail we will face a G.Grimsnarl several levels above ours, already in the postgame this would not be a big problem and from time to time we will be asked to defeat several of these enemies giving us the Trollhunter title.

    I know that these ideas can be terrible, but my point is that the world of Pokemon has enormous potential, but it seems that the managers always take the easy way out.

      This. GF wasted another opportunity at doing unique variant encounters.

    I liked most Gigantamax designs but as a mechanic it was pretty shit. At least Terastal has some slight element of risk/reward to it, even though I'm not a huge fan of the oversized "crowns"

    G max was probably the coolest thing up until the dlc just gave you a free g max mon whenever you wanted. They were actually pretty hard to get for awhile, way harder than shinies, and then they just said fuck it give us 30$ and you can have em.

    I think it should have been made as sumo inspired rather than kaiju, since given the limits of the Pokemon field and Japan mass destruction = nono.
    Hell, in pro sumo matches have a time limit of 4 minutes. So you could have set dynamax as a 4 turn thing in keeping with the sumo inspiration.
    Ultimately though Dynamax had some good ideas that came out half baked and were poorly tied into the lore and game itself

    Best gimmick imo, they literally took the best aspects of the past two gimmicks(getting new forms, that don't look like shit unlike 90% of Megas and having big cool fuck off moves). Not to mention how sick it is to have these moves get cool secondary effects.

    Cool concept but the duration of only 3 turns makes it quite forgettable.

    I've had zero issues with anything the Pokemon company and gamefreak have done up to this point far as gimmicks and trainer/mon designs are concerned. Kinda like Dragonball where new forms of super Saiyan are the hype points, DMAX/GMAX was hype to me as a casual. The designs and implementation were all great.
