      This. ShSw kill any momentum Pokemon had as a franchise. Combine with a shitty movie where they made a black guy a main character along with MUH REALISM, the Pokemon of America spending pokemon money on DJ and "musicians" to sing songs about sex and not about pokemon on POKEMON DAY, and GACHA GACHA GACHA, it is no wonder that everyone is tired of their crap.

      All games are made for children.
      >b- but age ratings of 16 and 18
      They accomplish nothing, you have wasted hours of your life playing a videotoy, just as a child would playing with his action figures, playing make believe in a fantasy world where you actually have power for once.

    Sun and Moon disappointed. I don’t know how you make a fantasy Hawaii boring but gamefreak did it. The national dex cut was just kind of the last coffin to hit the hammer in the nail of the head since it meant I couldn’t have a delphox named Guyphox as my companion in Galar.

    But it’s also bias because before sword and shield was announced I had actually been imagining Pokémon set in England and felt my ideas were better.

      For me I guess bdsp was boring as hell, Legends was boring as hell. I played Violet and really liked it, but don't have any interest in the dlc (never cared about it even during swsh).

      I am not much found of this raid thing, I do heavily like it, but I always feel like if you skip it you left behind with some cool mons. I was replaying the old games, but the battle frontier (palace, factory in emerald; tower, factory and the rng status one in hgss) kinda broke me. I want to take some time off, before going with gen 5 again or retry that shitty frontier until I can finally finish it off for good.

    I only play Pokemon like every 4 gens or so... but the last one I played was Sword/Shield and holy cow it was bad. No improvements since X/Y, aside from a really shitty "open world" area that was just a small field with no features, terrible framerate, and stiff/ugly pokemon animations.

    I couldn't believe how bad it was, it was amateurish.

    Didn't have a DS.

    I played Black 1 and 2 on an emulator though. It was nice for the novelty but I just can't get into it. My understanding of the stats and abilities go up to gen 3 and I have no interest in learning past that.

    when i played 3rd gen and couldn't go back to johto and kanto a little bit of kid me was dissapointed and yearned it, and once i got soulsilver years later i felt that it was a good send off for me, since it gave me what i wanted + had all the cool stuff that the 4th gen added, along with compatibility with the 3rd gen, so i could get almost everything without struggling with bullshit.
    nowadays i just check if any spin off games are good, legends seemed to be a neat idea but cheaply made. and i love pokemon snap but that's about it.
    i still check any lewds for the pokegirls though

    I just made it to Lumiose City a few months back and haven't touched XY since. Didn't play a Pokemon game since I beat BW/BW2 like 10 years ago. Does XY get better? I did play Nexomon a few years ago and it was pretty fun, fun enough to have playthroughs last hours without me closing the game. I think playing it on my actual 3DS could be the problem but who knows.

    Is there a video game franchise for the gamer who hates Pokenon, wants a franchise without fairies and wants an anti-Pokemon franchise in everything?

    Played since Red & Blue, before the game had any western popularity at all. My literal childhood. I've played at least one game in each generation. Here's my take.
    I prefer the first two the most, but those are heavily blinded my nostalgia so I'll just skip that bias. That said first two had the superior style and designs, and since then it's been large downgrade. Mystical creatures now changed to cartoon caricatures that are easy to make into plushies or straight up "guy in a fursuit". This became so bad that every starter now follows the latter, but this problem only slowly grew, so the earlier game are still quite good. 3 was a slight downgrade from 2 but not bad. 4 was good aside from Diamond/Pearl being painfully slow. Black/White were great but they began the bad trend of very linear world progression. X&Y were the start of the decline, but just that. Pretty decent, especially since they made a very large jump to 3D. Sun/Moon were just more of X&Y, very slowly declining further and at this point I was in sunken cost mode.
    Sword/Shield were worse, and I had pretty much given up. I wouldn't bother with the next one until they made actual drastic changes.
    Then Scarlet/Violet were released and I thought the open world stuff is a drastic change. So I gave it a try. And that's my last game that I will play for too many reasons to list. Almost nothing about the game is good. Its open world system, graphics, change in style, pokemon designs, and progression system are all terrible.

    I've treated Pokemon games more like expansions where I can play through them and then bring my 'mons that are older than posters here for a new ride. They will all now die in the Pokemon Home jail after the travesty of SV.

    Games were "wrapped up", so to speak, with G/S. That was the end.

    SwSh weren't regarded as good and there's a lot of good RPGs on the Switch. I played SV for free and I did 100% it but I feel actually getting those Pokemon was a lot more fun than battling.
    Sun and Moon were okay, not great but fine enough 3DS JRPGs. There's a shitload of games that fall under that category, bless that little thing.
