                700 of them are either irredeemable garbage or not as great as they could be because they have a bad combination of stats, movepool, and abilities but gamefreak has refused to unfrick them.

          They're not people, they're the same as every other golem on the internet these days. They treat games like they're social events instead actually caring about them. Every time a new game comes out now, everyone plays it and talks about it non-stop, and because ~everyone~ is playing it, they have to too. And then three weeks later, they move on to something else. A game doesn't have to be good anymore, people will play it because everyone on social media is playing it.

      Surprisingly enough this wasn't even the reason on how SwSh ended up being the worst Pokemon game in my eyes. It being a "go fight the next gym leader" simulator with little to no interesting story/character/worldbuilding notes just became increasingly disappointing on top of the lackluster designs. Even without dexit, I'd never do my old mons the disservice of letting them touch that dogshit region.

        Saying the game was rushed and the cut was needed to save on development time would've been a PR nightmare. Investors would be pissed and lack faith in the product while TPCI's management for the franchise would be put under scrutiny over their workplace culture. So they had to basically justify a decision they never wanted in the first place until they had no choice.

      imagine being so fricking brainwashed that you honestly believe BDSP was bad. FR/LG already set the bar so high for a remake then HG/SS comes in swinging as not only the best remakes but the best games in the entire franchise. with expectations through the roof, we finally get a glimpse of a gen 3 remake, the one that was prophecised to be better than we could even imagine...and we got fricking nothing. we got LESS than nothing. several elements of the game straight up removed, butchered the remains and tossed in that sad excuse of a battle frontier reference. the single lowest moment in all of pokemon right there, concentrated in the worst remakes in the franchise. echoing the horrible performance of the ruby/sapphire release it would forever mark the point of no return. a horribly ugly game with no redeeming features whatsoever. emerald is infinately more replayable than that slop. and then after such a disappointment, your hopes couldn't get any lower. the least you could ask for is a return to form, without fricking up any of the mechanics, any of the features or any of the memories...and then comes bdsp. right out the gate telling you first and foremost this is a remake of gen 4 without gamefreak's trademark bullshit. no gutted mechanics, no removed content, and an art style that perfectly emulates the look and feel of the ds-era sprites. no more ugly bobble-heads that started with gen 5 and never left the main series, just an honest to goodness faithful remake. it didn't need to be completely rebuilt, it didn't need a lore retcon, it didn't even fricking need to be a remake of platinum. it was a remake of diamond and pearl and it did it right. after the emotionally crippling disappointment of oras and each subsequent game showing gamefreak's inevitable ineptitude, we finally get an honest fricking remake. and all you fricks could do was cry that it wasn't ultra giga homie remake 3000 that sucks your dick while you play it. frick you.

        If it isn't going to add anything or be the definitive version playable wise or be graphically in the last gen level then what is the point. Being cheaper than the second-hand original ds cartridges?

      I agree with

      imagine being so fricking brainwashed that you honestly believe BDSP was bad. FR/LG already set the bar so high for a remake then HG/SS comes in swinging as not only the best remakes but the best games in the entire franchise. with expectations through the roof, we finally get a glimpse of a gen 3 remake, the one that was prophecised to be better than we could even imagine...and we got fricking nothing. we got LESS than nothing. several elements of the game straight up removed, butchered the remains and tossed in that sad excuse of a battle frontier reference. the single lowest moment in all of pokemon right there, concentrated in the worst remakes in the franchise. echoing the horrible performance of the ruby/sapphire release it would forever mark the point of no return. a horribly ugly game with no redeeming features whatsoever. emerald is infinately more replayable than that slop. and then after such a disappointment, your hopes couldn't get any lower. the least you could ask for is a return to form, without fricking up any of the mechanics, any of the features or any of the memories...and then comes bdsp. right out the gate telling you first and foremost this is a remake of gen 4 without gamefreak's trademark bullshit. no gutted mechanics, no removed content, and an art style that perfectly emulates the look and feel of the ds-era sprites. no more ugly bobble-heads that started with gen 5 and never left the main series, just an honest to goodness faithful remake. it didn't need to be completely rebuilt, it didn't need a lore retcon, it didn't even fricking need to be a remake of platinum. it was a remake of diamond and pearl and it did it right. after the emotionally crippling disappointment of oras and each subsequent game showing gamefreak's inevitable ineptitude, we finally get an honest fricking remake. and all you fricks could do was cry that it wasn't ultra giga homie remake 3000 that sucks your dick while you play it. frick you.

      . I was fully ready to go into it hating it for all the missed potential but after playing the game, it basically did everything I wanted it to. And stuff I didn't expect it too like bringing back following pokemon and having the mobile PC box. Plus it was fun to play gen 4 and not have to wait a year to save or for health to go down.

      You cant, because since they went 3D, they refused to give us real dungeons.

            False equivalency

            Word tendency actively prevents you from engaging with certain parts of the game, be it NPCs and their respective questlines, loot or areas
            It was hard to manipulate and never explained ingame.
            I currently play the remake, and i fricked myself out of a ceramic coin in Stonefang because i pushed it to black on accident, similarly i was gated out of selenes questline and garls weapons because i accidently hit garl after killing astrea, wich he swiftly answerd with 1hkill, wich put me to black tendency.

            The Battle frontier is entirely optional, and it was a beloved part of the game, in my opinion even the best singleplayer experience in pokemon, and is missed by many.

        and isn't the theme of deception still present in grimsnarl? it's not actually muscular. it's just hiding its weak physique under all its hair. and as far as "indirect" attacks go, it's still claimed to use its hair in novel, underhanded ways (e.g. ensnaring opponents with tentacle-like hair).

        I don't think they lie all the time. They made an open world because players wanted an open world, and finally fixed blastoise and typhlosion animations. Of course they still ignore things like "fix ice types" "nerf fairies and steel" "there is no reason Nidorina must be sterile" "Don't blatantly pander to charizard too much".

                The stream lasted 24 hours.
                24 hours of mostly nothing but a still forest with the occasional appearance of a few mons like Impidimp and Morelull, as well as a few glimpses of some new mon people couldn't make out yet.
                Eventually the new mon was revealed to be a pair of Galarian Ponyta one of which was missing a tail because smarr inde company.
                And then it ended.
                There were people who were suckered into actually watching the whole 24 hour stream of nothing.
                I laugh at those people.

      It's not about the villain being a woman anon, it's about the fact she's a shitty parent. Just look at the anime, they basically got rid of her entire game personality and rather than being a shitty mother she's a clingy doting parent. Pokemon at it's core is a game for children and making the main villain a shitty parent hits too close at home for all the dumb children with awful parents.

        I think it's such a shame they walked it back in USUM. Having characters deal with their dysfunctional families was one of the things I liked about SM. Lillie's cutscenes were annoying, but having a proxy for kids with shitty parents getting to give a "I love you, but you fricking suck and I deserve better" speech was probably cathartic for a lot of people.

        Gen 5 had still all the previos gen pokemon programed in its engine. Some of they were obtainable in the postgame. They could be introduced in the next games of the same gen or by transfer options.
        The dexcut means that a portion of the previous pokemons are not even programed to be in and could not be transfered unless they patched them in.

          The dexcut could be somewhat redemable if they had committed to patch in all pokemon before the introduction of the next gen.

        Megas were cool. I miss them, it was balanced in that you must use an item (rayquaza is another story) slot and since only some species could do it, the rival could predict it. Also each one was unique and had unique designs, buffs and abilities for each pokemon.
        Dinamaxing is actually the worst, just make it large and gave it broken stats, and the special forms sometimes were worse than regular ones.

          Megas were not balanced. You either had one on your team or you lost. It was better than any item because the item could not be countered like most other items. Having only one mega meant that picking anything but the most broken ones was an instant loss. This is all for comp because in single player megas were an instant win button that only a handful of NPCs used. Megas felt like an experiment into how broken they could make a Pokemon, I don't get how anyone would find them balanced.

    What im about to say sort of leans onto what others already said but here it goes.

    Having been on this pokeride since nearly the beggining i've seen it all, from the good, to best to worse to questionable, to interesting to horrible. For well over 20 decades its been pretty clear why people like pokemon this much and what they want more out of it, so here's the number one thing that pisses me off above all else. Gamefreak doesnt care. After the first 4 or even 5 gens its pretty telling that they simply stopped caring and that alone is infuriating. Its infuriating that said company managed to create the textbook definition of adventure in videogame form so long ago and in the present they just refuse to put the same amount of effort, energy and passion into it and make something truly amazing. There's all this huge legacy, all this great content and the immense potential to work on something that is both faithful to the spirit of the series but also a lot more modern, and what do they do? Half assed remakes, omega casual and streamlined core games, cutting huge amounts of content in the name of "optimization" of which none exists when the most ugly pokemon game can make the switch CHUG despite competitors such as Xenoblade doing a lot more with ease. This is the most upsetting part. They CAN make better games, they HAD made better games, these games are a living proof, its right there and yet they refuse to do it again because they simply do not care.

      Seriously this is exactly it. Pokemon is too big to fail. Why even put in the effort if people will give you buttloads of money regardless. They made pokemon DLC. You have to PAY money to get your favorite pokemon into the game. That's so fricking insane. And they do it because we've let them get away with it. Pokemon needs a flop. Not a critical flop but a game that does bad enough for game freak to go, "Shit, we might need to put some elbow grease into this if we wanna retain our audience."

        brb killing myself over the typo. Now really, part of the problem is what you said, too big to fail. This is why i dont think there's gonna be any "pokemon killer" ever because pokemon is that huge at this point. Best we can hope for is poor sales or a change of heart. Either way its so unbelievably sad that we used to have it so good and now its the polar opposide of it all, fricking DLC in pokemon games man, but what really put the nail in my coffin was visiting a "friend" and have them show me Scarlet on the switch and the framerate CHUGGED once it started raining and when i called that out all he said was basically "B-but its weather effects, of course its gonna drop frames, its the switch after all." this made me lose all faith in any future entries of the series.

        People talk about this a lot and deservedly so. But I think what gets overlooked a lot is how we also fricking lost a shitload of moves. No more hidden power. Pursuit gone. Power-up punch gone, wake up slap gone. Signal beam gone. Those are just off the top of my head. I can't wrap my head around it. Did they just not wanna animate these moves or what? Could gamefreak half ass this shit any more?

        ThisThisThis!!!!
        Not only removing ANY move would require more effort to do it than to properly implement it into the new entry but its also a major "frick you" to people who liked said moves, wanted to keep using them and also how they screw over event pokemon with unique moves which are rendered useless, its beyond moronic.

      I mean the closest thing at least I assume so, never played the Battle Pyramid was Black Tower/White Treehollow in B2W2.

      To this day, i think GF dropped it because they know they coud never produce something better then a 3D Sinnoh Game.
      Imagine the Dungeon Crawling and Exploration in a 3D Environment.
      You cant, because since they went 3D, they refused to give us real dungeons.
      Thats why they sacrificed Ilka with this playdough remake, as not to admit their own incompetence.

      They shoud give aqquire a fair chance to make a own Pokemon Game, i want to see GF fricked by a superior dev.

        You're right about it being similar, but they're really not the same. An integral part of the Battle Pyramid is careful use of items to overcome status conditions and revive party members that get wiped. Trainers are much more dangerous than wild pokemon, and you have to be extremely careful to avoid walking into a double battle trap.
        I think the reason i liked it so much is because it feels like PMD recreated in the mainline games.

          TYPE-MOON. They used to make visual novels but they are focusing in a successful gacha game now. Their "fans" barely read the VNs and they're mostly gacha addicts spreading misinformation everywhere. So it's impossible to have meaningful discussions most of the time since people don't care about their own franchise.
          I know you guys complain about people not playing Pokémon games sometimes, but my fandom is even worse than Dragon Ball fans in that regard. I would rather just stay away from them.

            To be fair, GO expends the Nasuverse and goes further in its worldbuilding.
            The coolest shit was Salomon and Ars Nova.
            Besides that, we will soon have Mahojou translated, we got a new Melty, new Tsukihime Routes incoming.

            Even if youre not a fatetard you eat pretty good.

            T. Never read a VN, and dont plan too

                My first contact with the nasuverse was back around new years 2008, been watching the whole Movie Series every New Years Eve as a personal tradition.

                I think im well versed in the Nasuverse.
                Did you ever watch Canaan, Anon?

                Oh yeah I did said "new", but I know about it since 2014 thanks to the UBW anime. I've started reading the VNs 4 years ago though, so I'm kind of new, but I have finished most Nasu main works so far.
                I know about Canaan, I've seen Takeuchi arts of it, haven't watched it yet tho.

                I still need to read Melty Blood, Tsuki no Sango and Tsukihime Remake from the main Nasu works, also DDD but I heard it's not part of the Nasuverse. I still haven't read most non-Nasu works so far besides FoxTail.
                stay night, hollow and CCC are my favorites. I like Sakura so that's also why I stay away from the fandom.

                Im surprised that you have such a tendency for the fate stuff.
                Might care to explain why?

                In my expirience, most people enter trough fate, but end up liking tsukihime or kara no kyokai more.
                With me its kinda strange in that i started with the KNK Movies, and only later found out about fate.
                Then proceded to watch Fate Zero wich i fricking loved, and was later a bit disenfrenchised by UBW.
                KnK and Zero had those gritty dark flair, it felt tangable and relatable, allthough its distanced and unclear if your unfamiliar with thermology, strangely its that aspect that pulled me even more in.
                UBW felt more shonenlike, i still liked the philosophic parts of it.
                I heard a lot of Shiroes internal monologue, wich helps to paint and flesh out his philosophy and train lf thought gets lost in the show (and VN translation, as i mentioned, not my beer).
                How woud you asses this statement?

                The ufotable adaptations aren't good... Not only Shirou but a lot of other characters suffered from it. I don't like the adaptations, but I really like the Fate VNs, I did read them two times so far
                I still haven't read Zero's LN, so I can't say anything about the anime adaptation, but UBW and HF are better in the VN, ufotable can't adapt Fate very well, which is why I think Mahoyo movie will probably end up being bad too

    You will die still mad about this, or you will get over it. There are only two options, which one do you want for yourself?

      don't worry, I'm leaving - getting bored. I'm not used to such slow threads. This thread ended after the first post anyway.
