    Open world not must be a non linear game. Open world means you can go everywhere you want and ignore main objective (just like in gta series). Early game section are almost always locked zones (mainly for tutorial), and after completion first quest, rest of the world opens for you (skyrim is open world but you must escape from helgen town first aka tutorial zone).

      True. Almost every open world game has locked zones for tutorial purpose. Even Skyrim doesn't open from the start. I think people mistake open world definition with non linear narrative. Not every open world are also non linear and non linearity are not always open world

        The problem is that people get too attached to definitions and boxing in certain games based on specific criteria. Half the time when people say open world they're referring to a sandbox with an otherwise linear story structure (GTA, Fallout) and the other half it's any game that's nonlinear or has no set story (I've seen Mario 64 be called open world before).
        All it ends up doing is then allow gays here to bait other gays over whether a game is 'open world' or not because that term carries specific connotations to it that some people like and other people dislike, instead of actually discussing the quality and merit of the games themselves. Just idiots flamewarring like 99% of this site

    I don't want all the pokemon in the entire map to scale off of how many badges I've gotten. it's less interesting. the only problem is going to stem from how the catching mechanics work in this game. in swsh you couldn't catch pokemon above a certain level (disgusting) without the right gym badge. in pla you could catch any level pokemon but they won't listen to you if your star rank is below the level you caught them at (which was fine because of how easy and unrestrictive star rank ups were). that entire concept just needs to be cut for a fully open world gym based pokemon game, it can't fly.

      Cutting it completely brings a new problem though, which is just sprinting to the end game area with a quick ball and then wiping the entire rest of the game with your level 80 pseudo you caught without battling it. Pokemon has a unique problem that other games don't have, and it's that any challenge in the world can become a tool you use.

        this is already a problem pseudo fixed in pla, in that when you're catching a pokemon above your ranking a modifier was put on the pokemon making it harder to catch. I really, really dislike the idea of attempting to punish someone for pushing the entire concept of an open world game like you just described.

          You do remember that Pokemon above a certain level don't listen to you if you don't have a certain badge right?
          Nothing beats sitting through 20 moves of
          X is loafing around
          X went to sleep
          Yes this happens on your caught Pokemon

          Traded pokemon. Mons you catch yourself always listen.

          Try it get your starter etc then use hex or whatever to make it level 100, i could of sworn it doesn't listen.

    The way the Koraidon/Miraidon forms were advertised made this pretty obvious, you'd have to be retarded to think you'd get access to all of them from the start. Having to unlock the climbing, swimming, and gliding forms A) lines up perfectly with how it was done in PLA and B) fleshes out the world by giving you a reason to return to areas you've already been through to explore more thoroughly. Very clickbait-y.

        Have you played no man sky recently? They fixed it, the bastards actually turned it around into something fun
        That doesn't excuse their bullshit, but it's still amazing to think that they dropped social media and actually went to fix their mess, I wish more companies did that

    I just want to know if there's any "NPC that's blocking your entire path even though they should have no actual way of blocking your path"

    I hate that stuff. Why are 2 people talking about the weather preventing me from accessing all of Tokyo or something

    From what I gathered from this article

    >Leakers say some Pokemon are late game
    "Waaah every single Pokemon can't be caught 5 feet from the MC's house within the first 5 minutes of gameplay!"

    >PLA didn't let you cross rivers or climb right away so this game might not either
    "The only open world game I've ever played is Breath of the wild"
