Why are the legendaries in particular causing butthurt?
There's plenty to dislike but I don't see the issue with the legendaries specifically.
They have giant balls and throat tumors and we aren't gay or smokers.
Scarlet pickers on the fence because although it has the version exclusive waifu, the trade off is that it has the worse bike.
this, I want Ayla, but i dont want to ride this ill dinosaur thing. Woulda be fine if they made the legendaries optional quest completion objectives instead of mandatory travel slaves. Real trainers roughed it with a bike
They fucking run. The bike features are purely aesthetic and that is what pissed me off.
only the orange one runs and it looks terrible
from what I've seen the purple one actually functions as a bike. it still looks like a fisher price balloon animal but it looks less awful in motion.
no, the Violet one actually is a bike pokemon.
Explain OPs picture then.
it stands when it isn't moving because little Pedrito is too short for his legs to touch the ground
If you don't choose purple lizard bike I'll just leave you in my dust
It's parked. The violet one rolling around while the scarlet one is just running is literally in the trailer.
Yeah no, the red one has wheels and doesn't even use them. Violet got the better bike by default.
>Scarlet has the better waifu
>Violet has the better...everything else
Truly a dilemma.
[Citation Needed], beyond the difference in Legendaries, Violet seems to appeal more to straight women and gay male players.
>basing your choice on an NPC you'll only see a handful of times
Coomers are really something else.
>version exclusive waifu
isn't that girl ugly though?
They're fucking motorbikes. This isn't Digimon where the monsters are data which can be shaped to look however you want, these are supposed to be living, breathing creatures who have adapted to their environment in semi-realistic ways.
You realize that porygon exists? You realize that clefki exists? You realize that there are already a fuck tonne of Pokémon that couldn’t realistically live in the real world and are just sentient objects, you disingenuous fucking mongoloid.
>I'll miss the point and make a retarded argument!!
Corpos must be so happy to have you defending them for free.
You know I’m right. Pokémon was never about creating a realistic world full of realistic creatures. They’re goofy Japanese cartoons and the fact you think it’s deeper than that is hilarious, grow up and stop playing kids games.
Nice gaslighting. I'd love to live in your head rent free. In fact. I think I will.
>I'd love to live in your head
I get what you’re saying but it sounds a little pathetic, no?
>Pokémon was never about creating a realistic world full of realistic creatures.
It was before it became a toy advertisement. And that happened around the time they drew art before making graphics.
But from the beginning they were selling merchandise of the characters. It’s not like Nickelodeon where the money got so tempting they’d be stupid to not sell toys, gamefreak has been doing it since the start.
>But from the beginning they were selling merchandise of the characters.
No they weren't.
I know they sold cards before the games came out and at at the latest a year after the games came out they were selling plush toys and small figurines, after that point they went all out on selling anything with pikachu on it. I may be wrong but just from what I remember, early on the franchise was never about monsters who live in a somewhat realistic world, it was about collecting monsters and hunting for cool ones. What would they have gained from making Pokémon seem believable? Just get a dog if you want a real animal in a real environment, better yet, go collect beetles and fight them for the raw Pokémon experience.
>early on the franchise was never about monsters who live in a somewhat realistic world
The first region was literally based on a region in Japan of the same name.
Wow so realistic.
>no, that doesn't count!
Yeah pretty much.
Read pic related. Pokemon were intended to be a part of the real world.
I find it ironic that you'd post a pic that perfectly represents what you just wrote.
I don’t know what irony is, sorry I’m not gay and I do not care for you’re advancements.
is explicitly man-made
well yes I would agree with you insofar as literal and figurative garbagemons have been dragging the series down for quite some time now
which niche does being a pokeball fit?
The Mimic class of monster, a staple of all RPGs since Dungeons & Dragons.
Wrong, it evolved to be in Richard Gere's magic show
>Why are the legendaries in particular causing butthurt?
I don't like the idea of a legendary being handed out that easily. Where's the legend? It's just a bicycle for a 10-year-old.
If the legendary generally helps people travel across the nation then that would be a great reason to idolize it. It could be the national animal of the region.
>It could be the national animal of the region.
It could have been, but that's not how legendaries have ever been portrayed. It just seems like too menial a task for a monster of legends. I wouldn't even be mad if it was just some regular Pokemon you got gifted.
card games on motorcycles
Agreed, the games looks and feel like shit . The legendary is the least bad part
Because once everyone realized the legends were meant to look like motorcycles, the general consensus expectation was that the Scarlet legendary was going to be like a dirt bike while the Violet was going to be like a hover bike. As of the recent trailer, their bike forms were revealed and Scarlet’s looks fucking retarded because it just uses its arms and legs, completely defeating the purpose of being designed like a bike and having fucking tires in the first place
It is a monster that happens to look like a bike when it is running about. This isn't se criptic metaphor, it literally is what is obviously is.
I just hate how different they look in bike form from how they look normally.
Koraidon actually does have a distinct and clearly visible wheel in its throat, so fair. It's a bike. I get it. A real shame it doesn't actually appear to use its wheels as much as Miraidon does though.
But that's also the thing. Miraidon does admittedly has a visibly bulbous throat, but unlike with Koraidon it really doesn't look anything like a wheel.
But then you summon them for their bike forms and Koraidon and MIraidon alike adopt the same damn form pretty much and Miraidon has these giant fucking wheels all of a sudden that doesn't look anything like its normal form and just mimics Koraidon's look even though they don't normally look alike. But here they clearly do.
At least Miraidon actually uses its rockets and wheels for propulsion instead of running around.
It's just an air sac and its tail curled up. Why would it spin? The other one is a literal machine.
Finally someone else who thinks Miraidon looks weird when it suddenly gains blatant wheels.
As for Koraidon, it can't use the wheels because they only look like wheels. With the only practical travel application being buoyancy.
They would be better without the hind wheels even if it means losing the obvious bike allegory. Koraidon's curled tail looks awkward and doesn't provide much when running. Miraidon has boosters that already do the work.
>As for Koraidon, it can't use the wheels because they only look like wheels. With the only practical travel application being buoyancy.
that's great and all but it looks like trash
Take it to the designers. It's ridiculous how they gave the pokemon with fake wheels the most blatant big wheels while Miraidon has to bulge its neck to even hint at the theme and then conjure up energy wheels in bike mode.
now it's a wheelbarrow
>I just hate how different they look in bike form from how they look normally.
It's upsetting how strange their bodies look just so they can accomodate wheels and a decent seat. Koraidon's hips look as wide as its shoulders in bike mode just so they can fit in that fake wheel.
Those are legendary Pokemon?
so when it takes a shit does the ass wheel just spin rapidly, scraping the shit out and flinging it everywhere
Looks worse than a fucking Vita game, wtf.
Switch hardware is probably weaker than the vita. Probably weaker than a gamecube. Maybe even weaker than a DS. Who knows?
You can literally look up the specs on Wikipedia. What a retarded thing to say.
It literally can't run xbox 360 era games like resident evil (they run blurry to fuck and stutter constantly). The specs have to be a lie.
The switch is quite a bit stronger than the Vita, actually.
considering they keep making games and you keep seething i don't think it ever did.
No matter what legendary you pick, for each one, there will have been an era in the past where both represented the future and there will be an era in the future where both will represent the past.
>buying Pokemon games in 2022
>I don't see
try looking at it
It looks like one of those shitty chinese toy bikes you'd find at a dollar store.
at least he uses his wheels
Why can't they just ride bicycles like in the good pokemon games?
Now we just need two Pokemon who have a single wheel each, and we FFXIII now.
I honestly always liked this design, Giger would be proud
>icy female things scissor into a bike
>ride said lesbian bike
when you expected a children's game to take anything seriously, let alone manchildren tastes like yours
>Think its Palworld mocking Pokemon's shitty designs
>Turns out to be official
MY HEART BEATS
IN HYPER DRIVE
post the webms already
jesus fucking christ this franchise is embarrassing.
Damn. That legendary has some huge ass nuts.
How does this guy coom when his junk is just ballsack and nothing but it?
He couldnt even if he wanted to he gets two tired
Micro pp, macro balls. All cum.
pokemon don't do that no matter how many fanfics you read or nsfw porn fanart you look at
Genital sheaths and slits, retard moron gay.
Pokemon don't have human dicks. That's cringe. I bet you think humans are born circumcised too, fucking dumbass.
I'm so amazing at raping fake animals and sucking animal dicks. You're such a worthless piece of shit. Never talk to me again, idiot.
Pokemon is Fucking Dead
Why? Like fuck. That looks fucking terrible.
Looks good for a 3ds game
Damn dude you eviscerated them! Uh Yeah, that’s gonna sting in the morning!
I tip my reddit gold to thee #roasted
When it started pandering to reddit.
>wooper is reddit
Actually have a nice day
I for one think Woopa is adorable
bro please the hard R
>Where did it all go so wrong?
Generation VI. It's pretty much unanimous among all millenial veterans of the franchise.
XY were clearly unfinished games, but had the best online out of any of them.
Who cares. No one unironically plays mainline for online. We use Pokemon Shoddy/Showdown since ages ago.
Nice cherrypicked image Yawnfag.
>No one unironically plays mainline for online.
Plenty of people were in XY, because breeding was easy, and there were actual reasons to connect with other people(no transfers and the 3DS wasn't hacked). You could just put "6v6 OU" as your status and get random battle requests from people who saw you on their bottom screen. It was unironically the perfect Pokemon experience, and the closest to an MMO the series should ever get.
XY are genuinely a "you had to be there" kind of game.
It went wrong after the mainline games left the gameboy era. You are blind to disagree.
Built for TPC (tepig cock)
XY had the worst routes / exploration, story pacing, number of new mons, villains, and color saturation out of all the games
It almost makes up for this by having the best online system with the PSS
But anyways I agree with the other anon. XY was when things started to go downhill because GameFreak clearly cannot keep up the pace for yearly releases of 3D games
>XY had the worst routes / exploration,
You got that right!
>XY had the worst routes / exploration, story pacing
yeah I hate how there was actually a sizable amount of content between each gym
they should have made it with unova where there's literally only 1 route between each gym and I can beat the entire game in 6 hours
>sizable amount of content between each gym
There’s basically nothing going on from gyms 3 through 7
Sprites were unironically better for at least 90% of the pokemon
Yeah. Most of the older gen pokemon before gen 6 were not designed with fluid motion in mind. Of the 10% that transitioned into 3D well, I'd say Phanphy/Donphan was one of them. But that's because Donphan in particular was always designed around being an elephant that can turn itself into a tire and roll around. Which was what made it so cool when it first appeared in the first Pokemon movie.
>whoa! a Pokémon that I don't recognize! cool!
anon watching the pokemon movie and perhaps never thereafter
small indie company, please understand
The new legendary is basically a skiddo. But uglier and doesn't learn milk drink.
I don't even know why they bothered with that gimmick again either, when nobody fucking remembers that pokemon line. It was literally a pokemon that existed for the purpose of a gimmick. Even Fineon line is more remembered.
>complain that vehicles aren't pokemon
>get pokemon that are vehicles
>complain that pokemon are vehicles
I'm starting to think you guys just don't like Pokemon and regardless what they do, you're going to be upset.
 - clarification on the popular demand for a lightning mcqueen pokemon
People have been bitching about the bike and the fact it wasn't just a pokemon ever since rotom was introduced
Have a (You) for your trouble, gay-chan.
Literally nobody asked for a pokemon with wheels stuck in its torso while it runs
don't care, haven't played a pokemon game past gen 4, i just replay the old ones whenever i have the itch. keep me away from this modern Ganker bullshit where every new game is a regression and the whole fanbase is comptards and pedos and furries
but anon showdown is kinda fun, it's the only thing I've touched about bogeymans other than romhacks since hgss
i have never met anyone irl who gives a shit about the Black/White generation but everyone online insists it was the best
what's the explanation
zoomers who didn't even exist when the series was at its best (pokemania)
gen 1 and 2 is still considered the best among anyone who isn't an underagetard
It's crazy to me we still haven't achieved this.
as someone who played blue on gb first, I humbly submit that 2 is the best for my money (specifically Crystal for those animated sprites) and that it was the last gen where it was pretty much the old gen but better in every conceivable way
Grown men and women wouldn't dare talk about Pokémon in public
Well for one, Violet's default uniforms look a hell of a lot better than Scarlet's.
>Grown men and women wouldn't dare talk about Pokémon in public
Forgot about Pokémon go already?
*aside from Pokémon GO
Acceptable zoomie bait doesnt count. Those fuckers wouldn't dare discuss the intricacies of waifus and/or pokemon lore.
x/y were next and that shadow colored everything before it in bright rose tint
anyone who was actually around when XY launched knew it was far better than gen 5.
BW2 were the final games in the sprite era and had the greatest amount of content in a set of games up to that point. From difficulty modes to side quests to the medals system to the gym leader rematch tournament and even to stupid shit like Pokestar studios, they were packed with stuff to do.
X and Y have redeeming qualities but were a massive leap in design / production philosophy and a lot of people were turned off by them
>From difficulty modes
that are unusable
>to side quests
that are actually just forced tutorials that bog the game down
>to the medals system
which are just ribbons but worse
>to the gym leader rematch tournament
which is just the battle frontier but worse
>they were packed with stuff to do
yeah there was so much to do like catching the zero new pokemon and exploring the 4 new routes in the copy/pasted region
I too hate everything and see value in nothing anon
nah I don't hate good games
Long as the franchise keeps creating amazing husbands, I will support it.
Shitdicks get the rope gay. You'll die from aids before the next game comes out.
>Shitdicks get the rope
So all straight guys who love fucking women in the ass are going to be executed like animals, too?
They should have just gone full retard kino, just give us Pokemon battles on motorcycles like yugioh 5Ds instead of just throwing a bunch of retarded gimmicks with no cohesion or theme.
I want to fuck that
It's clearly a machine anon
didn't knew YLYL thread were allowed on Ganker
Started Pokemon black for the first time yesterday. Absolutely awesome.
Congrats, have fun anon.
new fisher price toy just dropped
Almost like the game is made for young children.
very original joke anon
thanks bro glad you took the time out of your busy day to originally reply
Wouldn’t be here if that were the case.
Black and White were so astronomically good, that they realized that it would be impossible for them to ever make a better game than BW, so therefore, they just gave up.
>Black and White were so astronomically good
yeah how could game freak ever top this bros
pokemon was never good
I don't understand wtf they were fucking thinking? Why the wheels? The creature looks fine without them and runs so why add those stupid things? It just baffles my mind but then again it's fucking JAPS they create the worst most awful and sometimes cringe fucking designed cloth, weapons, vehicles, ect. in all media
I literally didn't know what series this was until I read like ten posts in. So fucking funny how people used to defend new pokemon designs and say they weren't getting worse.
yeah pokemon designs used to be so much bette-
We're still in agreement anon
>actual monsters instead of bikes
gen 3 was the start of the shitmon infection IMO but at that point it was mostly limited to the legendaries.
always thought Dialga and Palkia looked like trash even when I was 12.
that being said, it could be worse...
It's cooler ingame.
if you say so.
personally it makes me think of that old image macro of a buffed shaved dude dressed up like a unicorn that says "YOU AREN'T THIS GAY BUT YOU'RE TRYING"
I appreciate you saying "image macro" instead of "meme"
when you all complained about HMs
I simply hate designs that mimic manmade creations
>Inb4 BUT MUH MAGNEMITE
also not a design a like, but it's also not a legendary modeled after a motorcycle
You don't like mimics?
They started to prioritize adding new Pokemon instead of just making the games better. Really all they need is 20 or so new Pokemon per gen.
