    Masuda went very high effort on 5 and a vocal group of idiot hated it.
    This taught everyone that the best way to make money with pokemon was to phone it in and put as little effort as possible while delivering the few pandering must haves.

      BW was well recieved by critics and the general public alike. Literally look at review scores and they are all positive. The same thing applies to every game before Gen 5 as well as Gens 6 and 7. It wasn't until the Nintendo Switch when reviews showed more controversy.

      Does this mean every first version with an enhanced release is unfinished?

      The dex was just a blatant rehash of KANTOOOOO masquerading as a new dex. Fricking embarrassing. Plus the muttmerica setting with all the brown npcs hurt it.

        Gamefreak said it's a soft reboot of Gen1. Why do you keep ignoring this fact?

          Which is why it's low-effort. Masuda going high-effort would have been moving the series forward in a fundamental way, not reaching back to redesign KANTOOOOOOO for Gen Z.

          Soft reboots can have more enough put into them than just trying to ape the designs of the most successful pair of games in the franchise.

    Pokemon X and Y came out when I was 12 or 13 so I was extremely excited for them and ended up really loving them on launch. I gave Sun and Moon a try (or maybe Ultra I can’t remember) and it was just fricking awful. Held your hand every five minutes. Felt so restrictive. I completely hated it.

    Been purely playing emulators of 2D games ever since. Never looked back. The answer is — you grew up.

      If by "soul" you mean "shit" then yeah, you're right.

    Greed.
    GF was content with the release schedule and by the end, could put out sequels instead of a rehashed game following the same plot.
    However, the jump to 3D meant more time spent making the game. Those release windows the 2D games had were too strict, which meant that they had to cut features to makes ends meet.
    The shining example of this, is the Alola games.
    SM felt unfinished and was essentially the beta for USUM which, while it felt complete, it was also a shitty game.
    The games are only getting bigger, so I expect more technical issues like in SV.

    you mean gen 2? I took one look at it and bought megaman battle network instead. I tried to play gen4, but when I realized that you had to grind invisible stats to get a good online battle , I said frick it and never played a pokemon title again.

    There are better rpgs out there and better monster rpgs at that. Another developer actually made a superior pokemon game to the main series in mystery dungeon.
