        you think that for the first time in history gamefreak is going to fix a game's problems because people whined about it online? that'd be nice but it seems way too naive.

            You are a simple fucker with hilariously bad hot takes. SS's Wild Areas (and DLC) pointed to Gen 9 being Open World (mainly because they start the next new Gen about 6 monnths before releasing their current Gen, so Gen 10 started planning in about June). That they spent time putting it in meant they wanted to get experience pissing about with it before going full-bore on a full title release, with Legends being greenlit to act ass a test for larger again open areas to SS's Wild Areas.
            Signs were there since they first showed off the WA. Sorry dexit broke you so you couldn't actually look at what you were being given and extrapolate the future from it. Stop listening to the echo chamber.

            that game was announced and had been in development long before swsh released.

          Don't be disingenuous, they HAVE patched their games, when the bugs were game-breaking (Luminose city glitch and I think on the Aola games also had a save fuck-up somewhere).
          None of the shit you incels have been crying over for the last 3 days ARE game-breaking however, so no need for a patch.

            Yeah but I really hate the frame drops, slows the game down way too much. The graphical glitches are distracting.

    Gamefreak will just Half ass it as usual. There's no incentive to put into their passion in a game they've been burnt out on for years of developing especially to meet with deadlines that coincide with the merch and anime.

      You do understand the people deving it DO have passion for it, yeah?
      They just don't have the "passion" to cater to autistic manchildren while doing so. They love seeing kids discover the shit they do in-game.

        Also, the bugs and glitches in this game is not a good first impression to leave for a kid. If they did care, they should have delayed it and called for assistance in one of Nintendo's other development teams.

    It's based, because Scarlet & violet are based, and this means future instalments of the series will be more like them.

      Open world games like this need time, BOTW spent like 5 years in the oven and even if you ignore the massive undertaking of the physics engine they still changed shit months before release like the way you use runes just to make it more intuitive on the switch
      If we don't get that kind of commitment, which I seriously doubt, they'll still be half baked

          if they took their time to make the next Gen, like genuinely a few years minimum, it would be the best-selling pokemon game in several years. and I confidently say that because the masses would be extremely hyped for a new pokemon game coming out—since in this hypothetical, there hasn’t been one in years—and they would create the hype by showcasing some of the stuff they’re working on in trailers.

    Most of those sales were either preorders or day 1 sales, the people that bought it knew nothing about the flaws.

    SV broke sales records because people liked the previous games (PLA, SwSh etc) and so they expected to like SV. Sales is not indicative of how people will perceive the game in the future.

    well the cycle continuous so whatever. nothing new. next game will be worse. normies are saying this is the best pokemon game of all time so nothing will change lmao. only perf sucks for them. this franchise is so done but at least its kinda funny sometimes to see wtf is going on.

        Some diehard apologists are but plenty are mocking the games or complaining on Pokemon's social media accounts. None of it will matter unless sales are noticeably affected so GameFreak will keep halfassing it

    The question is what would happen to the Pokémon brand as a whole? For a franchise like Pokémon the next major release should be the one to look out for regarding sales plus the DLC. If the DLC doesn't sell as much and the next major release doesn't have as many pre-orders is how will we know how bad shit is.

    This is the last time this will happen, because all these preorders were made before the game was revealed to be Cyberpoke 2077.
