                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.

      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.

        As for Koraidon, it can't use the wheels because they only look like wheels. With the only practical travel application being buoyancy.

        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 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.

        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.

          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.

          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.

      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

    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.

    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.

    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.

        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...

            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"

    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.
