      I'm still kind of butt hurt that it flopped as hard as it did. There was some good stuff in there and Nintendo really wanted it to succeed and have staying power. You could see from the Directs at the time that even NOA was convinced it would be the next Pokemon. What a crying shame. Some of the monster designs are pretty cool and would work well being turned into Pokemon, like that ripped up can turning into a vending machine would make a perfect Poison / Steel type. But that would never not feel like a rip off. Also really strange that Jinbanyan never ended up in Smash Brothers, when he probably would have been pretty fucking likely if the development period for either Smash 4 or Ultimate was shifted just a little bit earlier in time

        The fault with yokai watch is is the fault of digimon.
        Well 2 with yokai watch, but I'll go over the main one.

        Consistancy.
        The reason manchildren still flock to buy the bing bong wahoo mario games is because it's a consistant thing. People buy the latest madden, latest cod etc etc. Because they can expect the same shit with a new coat of paint.
        And yokai/digimon failed in that department. Almost every digimon and yokai watch game was something different, Digimon went from rpg town sim, to dungeon crawler, to pokemon, to standard jrpg, to the weird grid based battle thing. I duno i aint played survive yet. I haven't had time to go to the store.
        People WANT the same shit with a new coat of paint
        They want another pokemon game that ticks all the boxes, cross the T dot the I.
        That's why nintendo are still such a powerhouse. They can produce the same shit, and anything they want to experiment with becomes a spinoff. If it works, merge the ideas into the main game.
        You get to branch out while keeping your core alive. Digimon and yokai had all there eggs in one basket. If there games flopped, they lost it.
        If a spinoff flops, the idea clearly doesn't work so it's fine.

        But ontop of this, yokai watch's popularity was very heavily eastern. I know, yokai. But the point is, if you wanted to spread out and get the kid of popularity of pokemon monsters. Then you had to have monsters they would like. Nobody looks at a Granny holding speakers, A old man shaped like a potatoe or a red baby and thinks. "Yer that's my partner."

          It's this. The western localizers took a game about creatures from Japanese folklore and went "hey guys we made a bunch of not-Pokemon called "Yo-Kai", aren't we original? Give us money!" Erasing all the actual culture from the game just made it lose the original appeal it had. It never had a chance outside Japan because your average non-nip doesn't have any attachment to yokai to begin with, but marketing it as if you pulled all the monsters out of your ass just completely destroyed it.

            Since 2016, pure progressive creativity was abbandoned in favour of cultural subversions and politics, we want to be different than the past without realizing that its not pure progression but the opposite

          Self cannibalization was another big factor. They just churned out so much shit in such a short time frame because they were scared of not capitalizing on the hype. It quickly exhausted their core audience and confused newer audiences.

            Zelda was its own case, a series used to be composed of fans that didn't apprecciated the change of genre of games after Majora's Mask
            >wind waker not ocarina of time bad
            >twilight princess not wind waker bad
            >skysword sword not twilight princess bad
            Breath of the Wild led to a new fanbase that eclipsed really bad the old one due the point the old doesn't really matter anymore and the new is completely fine with the series being a Ubisoft open world clone from now on

      That's a standalone mon that morphed due to its environment. The new gimmick makes them temporary crystalize.

    Never. Pokemon is founded on theft and plagiarism. Remember that its concepts and designs were lifted from the likes of Dragon Quest, Megami Tensei, Dungeons & Dragons and Ultraseven.

      Also Kaiju and Tokosatsu media from the '70s to 90s. There was a great series of threads not too far back where people just kept pointing out how a lot of the Gen 1 Pokemon very closely resembled Ultraman bad guys, for example

      How so? They took many things from Yokai Watch while the only reference to that game is Cinderace, AFAIK.

        >Paper Mario: Sticker Star - November 11, 2012
        >Yokai Watch - July 11, 2013
        >the first chapter of the Yokai Watch manga - December 15, 2012

        No matter how you spin it, Sticker Star was TECHNICALLY first, although I wouldn't be surprised if someone else thought of the "cover monster in shiny paper stuff" before Sticker Star.

        Basically, Yokai Watch copied the "monster is shiny" thing from Sticker Star and added a "changes type" thing to it, and SV is just everything and making the hat the monster wears sillier.

          You know that meme about how "people without consciousness can't create, only copy and destroy"?

        It was honestly the first and only time TPC was genuinely worried about a competitor.
        Because being in Japan they experienced Yokaimania in person, a phenomenon which never reached such levels in the West. So we don't quite get it.
