And yet you STILL hated the gen. Here we are almost a decade later with an arguably worse performance. Why did you hate X/Y? You focused so hard on the "negatives" you forgot the great things it offered. Things you so callously took for granted and now we suffer.

        I think the argument that anon is trying to make is that people shit on Kalos because it has unused content (Floette) and inaccessible areas (power plant) and such and that people don't realize the older games had stuff like that. in anon's eyes, Kalos is getting unfairly shat on and I guess he thinks people criticizing it for that are hypocrites because they'll praise games that also have those flaws

          People shit on kalos because the game goes from full if life to an empty unfinished rush of a game after the second gym. The last 80% of the game is a boss rush through some of the most boring areas and dungeons in the series.

    Trying to lift up such a trash tier game on the lowest bar across the board... Every game pre console era has had good menu load and transitions. (cannot confirm SWSH due to principles of not owning from lies)

        Tera is the least offensive in that way, also it doesn't take up an item slot so its better than z-moves in that way.

        however. Its still gonna be gone next generation.
        Any pokemon that finds a niche because of lel tricky tera type is gonna be back in the box next gen.

    At the time, it was held in high regard for being the first mainline 3d Pokémon game, and I don’t think that’s necessarily a strength of the game. Yes, they are 3d, but a lot of life is lost in that transition; colors are washed out and ugly, a lot of the charming animations are gone, and some models completely changes the feel of certain Pokémon, like Typhlosion or Excadrill. It’s not that they’re inherently bad, but the Gen 5 games did more with less, and the 3d games don’t really use the 3d to their advantage.
    The story and characters are also not very engaging, and while that isn’t the most important thing in a Pokémon game, X and Y feel even more shallow in this department than any of the earlier games. The story is more or less inconsequential, and none of the characters really stand out. The rivals are probably the easiest example of the poor characterization, but even characters like Lysandre and Diantha are not really fleshed out and feel more like blank canvases for the writers to sprinkle archetypes onto, if even that.
    The Looker quests were ok. They weren't awful, they weren't great. Looker's a cool character, but he just wasn't in XY until that point. The Team Flare stuff was mildly interesting, but Team Flare as a whole just wasn't developed well in the main game so it didn't carry much weight. There were some cool characters and themes in the quests, but the poor pacing, lack of proper development and just lack of connection to the main story made them just ok.
    The rest of the post-game was just lacking. There was battling, but there is battling in every post-game. The battle facility wasn't good compared to the older titles. There weren't really any new areas to explore (a small city and a couple of legendries), there weren't many new Pokemon to catch, there wasn't really a good post-game plot. There just wasn't anything worthwhile in the post-game or anything that stands out, which I guess fits XY pretty well.
