Now that the dust is all over the place, what is your current hype level for Scarlet and Violet?

Now that the dust is all over the place, what is your current hype level for Scarlet and Violet?
Personally, 8/10, never been higher for a Pokémon game, even if I wanted level scaling for the gyms and important battles. But it seems pretty good anyway, better than SwSh and SM

        who preorders pokemon games, besides retailers?
        The only games I've preordered were Atlus games, and Yokai Watch Psychic Specters as well as two copies of Yokai Watch 3.
        YW3 unironically btfo all 3DS and Switch pokemon games.

            beats having to hunt down a game like Etrian Odyssey III, later. I'm not doing that again.

    Probably a 4/10. Leaks got me pretty excited for some of the new Pokemon but upon being revealed they're inevitably pretty disappointing.

    Sounds like we won't be getting much of a postgame again minus RNG raids which some of the cooler pokemon are going to be locked behind.

    No level scaling at all coupled with forced EXP share on an open world game guarantees you're going to be overlevelled so it's another easy one too.

    Seems meh.

      Same as this anon. Leaks had me interested but they blew pretty quickly with the reveals.

    7 or 6 out of 10, cautiously optimistic. Everything about it besides shit graphics and no voice acting seems genuinely good, but I feel even after PLA gamefreak is gonna make another broken mash A simulator. The let's go mechanic has me even more worried cause it doesn't look engaging at all, but we'll see

    Say what you will, but my only investment in modern Pokémon anymore is via Pokémon GO, so the prospect of a bunch of new evolutions and regional/paradox forms is the only thing really on my radar. From the perspective of its contributions to the Pokédex, it might be a 7/10 for me assuming the leaks are accurate enough. While I'm not a huge fan of it, I'm glad that this game gives pic related some competitive opportunities.

    I'm not gonna actually buy it until this board makes a good enough argument for me to play it (not gonna emulate it either, if it's worth playing I'll buy it).

    I'm curious about the unrevealed pokemon designs, and this gen's gimmick seems interesting.

    I'm probably around a 7.5. Worth noting that I'm usually not the type to really get hype for Pokemon games, I play them on reflex. But I'm genuinely looking forward to SV, I think it has a lot of potential. I enjoyed the SwSh DLC, especially just being able to explore at my leisure, so I hope SV provides a lot of that.

    2/10 because I at leats want to see the new designs and how the open world plays out. Looks like complete shit otherwise

    Nothing.
    I got nothing.
    Open world and non-linear gym progression are cool but I just know GF will fuck it up. The only Monster design I like so far is Fuecoco, I hate what they've done to the art style and I hate the human designs. I don't think I'm even interested enough to pirate.

      Doesn't the Gyms not having level scaling mean that they aren't really non-linear?

    I slept while playing Ultra Sun like 5-6 times, endangering the integrit of my 3DS. That was the final straw with main pokémon games.

    I have no desire in adquiring a switch or playing pokémon at release anymore. It's all rehash of the same thing but worse.

    Harvest Moon/Story of Season its all rehash too, but at least each game feels enjoyable and they retain good features.

    I have more fun playing GBA and DS pokémon games.
