What went right?
Lowering the bar so low that GameFreak never needs to worry about making an effort again.
>No National Dex
>All corridors and cutscenes
>No Triples or Rotation Battles
>No Inverse Battles
>Worse FPS than other Pokemon games on 3DS
>Worse story than other Pokemon games on 3DS
The story and characters were very memorable and gave us the best Pokegirls in the series.
How the fuck was the story worse than in XY? Alola haters are braindead.
Even if you don't see the story as boring it still takes way too much time to skip trough.
>>All corridors and cutscenes
Black and White started this trend.
Started in XY
Lucario was a thing three generations earlier.
>Lucario was a thing three generations earlier.
Yes, and Lucario was a mistake. So why do they keep on making it again?
Lopunny was way more blatant imo. Although they're both from the same gen so your point still stands
>Black and White started this trend.
yeah and then BW2 fixed it and and then Alola ruined it again
Most of it, really. Not many flaws other than the usual problems the series has, and there were plenty of improvements like Pokeride, graphical updates, and seperating the map from a grid.
You can easily tell how good they are when desperate bait like
Can only list minor harmless changes or just blatantly lie about what's actually in the game.
>graphical updates, and seperating the map from a grid.
weren't improvements and Alola was so much less colorful than ORAS that they needed to fix it in USUM and they only fixed it slightly.
They tried to go full 3D and move away from Chibi on 480p hardware.
Pokéride was terrible. Getting gifted Pokémon you can't even use in battle goes against the core principles of the series. There wasn't even much of a need for them because the level design was just horrible straightways between towns with little to none dungeons and puzzles. At least have a boss fight against the Rideable Pokémon beforehand like a few did in PLA.
Just because you don't like HM's does not mean the solution is good.
I feel you should've been given the choice to use one of your own Pokémon as a mount.
For me Pokéride and losing the grid are straight downgrades. I've never understood why people bitch so much about HMs because I've always appreciated them as effective game design that links battles and the overworld together mechanically. Grid movement is just a hard preference for me and I believe was the critical step in what ultimately killed the games for me, totally overworld Pokémon and no random encounters.
Bump for answering
The discorder is never going to answer your question, because they don't have an answer. Might as well let the thread die.
I still want to know WHERE THE FUCK IS GO PANDERING IN SM???
Imagine being such a brainlet that you're purposefully involved in a series that is centered on cartoon animals, but also you get mad and seethe when you see cartoon animals.
story than other Pokemon games on 3DS
The story was fine in SM before USUM "fixed" it with unnecessary additions and changing Lusamine's character. It was still miles above XY and ORAS with their "villain with 'good intentions' is about to end the world".
Pokémon Nova Sun fixed it
What went right is me skipping that gen
IV checker in boxes was a good feature
Some of the Pokémon were alright
VGC17 was a fun format to play
I want to go back
Lillie is eternal. Cheap clones like Marnie and Nemona just don't compare.
Why are Lilliefags such retards?
Marnie and Nemona are clones in the sense that they're girls designed to look cute and be highly marketed. However, they just don't compare to Lillie.
Except they're doing this since gen 5, your Lillie isn't different.
lillie is eternally in the trash compactor.
Calm down Silver schizo
I am just sick of you fucking pe-dos shilling your shitty useless pokegirls in every thread, where nobody cares about them
hang yourselves, you will never ever have sex, specially not with a little girl.
VGC until Ultra Changes ruined everything
Game Freak creates other furfagmons to stop Lucario, but they don't know that furries will always ship them with Lucario, increasing his popularity instead
Believe it or not Nemona is not the Lillie of gen 9 is another woman
HM died at last, biggest step forward
Almost everything. They're the best Pokemon games ever
no they are the worst
Best girls in the series
Totems and trials were a refreshing change
Removing grid based movement and chibis was long overdue
The story was good for pokemon standards
totems ant trials were gay
>What went right?
nothing they are the worst games in the series
But enough about SwSh
But enough about the switch and 3ds games
i actually had less fun with gen 7 then i did 8
best set of new mons in the history of the franchise
Raising the bar one last time, before quietly sinking into lazy mediocrity thanks to GO revitalizing the franchise
>last time we got to use every pokemon in a single game
>last time side areas/dungeons were a thing
>thought out routes and character building before a deluge of baby's first ubisoft """"open world"""" and cardboard cutout characters
>bringing back megas alongside z moves rather than abandoning ideas
>sadly the most stylized mainline game to date
>sadly the best story we've had so far
>actually cares enough about their native starters to give them specialized Z moves rather than sideline them for kanto pandering like in gen 6, 8, and 9
>last time a pokemon game actually felt like a pokemon game, rather than pandering to bandwagoning GO players
>last time they made an effort to branch out by ditching the tired gym format for actual boss fights, something they try and fail to replicate with raids
>give artists top tier designs to work with, both with pokemon and characters
>brought life back into the anime
>was overall a swan song before the series truly sank into a mediocre swamp, sadly beginning as early as UsUm
I won't pretend that the Gen 7 games didn't have a ton of problems, but this anon is mostly correct.
My pink punk skull grunt gf that’s what
Lillie did, right into my heart
clodsire and gholdengo do it for me
>Z-Moves weren't limited to an enumerated set of Pokemon; anyone could use them.
>Psychic Terrain and dedicated terrain setters brought a much needed nerf to the overwhelming priority spam near the end of 6th gen, as well as opened up new forms of synergy in teams.
>The Tapus, Ultra Beasts, and to a lesser extent Pokemon like Incineroar, Tsareena, and Mimiku were all clearly made with competitive in mind, so a surprisingly large amount of the Pokedex were and are still competitively viable.
>The music was pretty good.
Nothing, it's the game that made me drop the franchise for a while
Who the fuck is this impostor whore?
Normies I know adored these games because "muh pokemon formula was stale and these tried something new"
I think they've become accustomed to moviegames and like the cutscene spam
I did like was the Lillie/Lusamine story in SM (fuck USUM).
Only other positive thing I guess I can say is I recall the pokemon variety in the region being decent, everything else was pretty lackluster
Iwata was still around to tell them not to do a dex cut.
It wasn't as horrible as swooshit and sv. But otherwise it marked the beginning of the steep decline.
>otherwise it marked the beginning of the steep decline
Gen 6 marked the beginning.
>otherwise it marked the beginning of a decline
By being a small peak attempting to drag the series back up from gen 6's crash, yes. It is technically where the next drop starts.
Never played but I know they tried really hard on making an interesting story like Gen 5 and it flopped miserably imo. Team Skull and Guzma are alright but all the other characters suck.
It was better than Gen V's story, BW/2 was cheesy melodrama, something I'd expect from some lameass Final Fantasy title. Lusamine and Lillie's relationship was handled way better.
no it wasn't. Lusamine was a terrible villain and family drama is boring as a main plot point.
the only good characters were Guzma and team skull
Gen 5 story was much worse, just a rehash of Team Rocket with worse characters and a fake PETA veneer that was never explored in any interesting or satisfactory fashion. It also gave us the ultimate fujobait Gary Stu, N, an easy contender for worst character in the franchise.
This is the opinion I would expect from a bort who admits to not playing the game though, lol
>an easy contender for worst character in the franchise.
that's lillie. she's useless, annoying, way too many cutscenes, basically armin arlert but she never gets turned into a titan
Being significantly more ambitious and well-made than gen 4 and 5, which is why it continued the trend of revival gen 6 started.
