      PLA actually had a story and characters that interacted and developed. It released in a complete state as well.

It's honestly bad if you can be compared to Game Freak and come up short in any metric, especially when seeking an audience older than the impressionable moron kids Game Freak laser-target.

              I understand what early access is - it's the desperate cry for help for a studio unable to finance projects to completion competently, when it's not just a one-man show with a day job and a hot idea, but no c**t willing to help him.
              And Tajiri was able to keep his studio alive, make enough money to get his modus operandi out and fully release it while zoomies think playing an alpha build's impressive. You're the cancer that's killing the gaming industry for gamers, die in a fire shill.

                Precisely my ideal Pokemon game would be just Monster Hunter where you can catch the monsters, mostly because I love the aesthetic of MH creatures and how there's no cutesy crap and the monsters are vicious and lethal, like Pokemons would be in real life.

                >they dont want interaction
                I never wanted it because it's gay as frick and takes away from the combat.
                Pokemon should be rabid creatures that you force to follow your orders, not hecking wholesome puppies.

                Pokémon were designed with cute looks so they would become friends to humans. It is why animals like dogs and cats with large heads and eyes are common pets, while ones less cute relatives like bears and leopards are not.

                I'd say Pokemon's design is high highs and low lows while Pal's design are more consistent. I dont hate any of them while I hate many pokemons. Also with how interactive they are you get attached to them quick. Pokemons are stuck with robotic models right now and that's sad given the entire premise of the franchise.

                That differ from people to people. In pokemon, I would maybe use like 5% of the roster, at best. Palworld just got started, but I would use most, if not all of the mons.

                palworld is infinitely worse because they failed to make the world, monsters, and humans look cohesive

                and the models took the worse parts of pokemons style with lack of definition, plain textures and features that look painted on

    It's hard to describe, but the people deep in the discourse trenches defending Palworld have the exact same type of idosyncracies across websites.

But go to certain subreddits, or the Tumblr tags for the game, and the shit people post definitely feels out of place and inorganic.
