Why the Ed Sheeran song?

Why the Ed Sheeran song? This shit is not pokémon anymore, SWSH were bad, but they still felt like pokémon, this shit is fucking unrecognisable, this is like putting something like vanilla ice in RBY, who was responsible for this shit? I need names. Most stuff shown made me disappointed, but this shit, it just angers me
No hate for the guy tho, I just hate TPCi

      The GoTfags seething over his cameo came from preexisting hatred for him. I just know him as the singer for the end credits of the second Hobbit movie, so I really don't get it either.

      I'm a brit and am forced to listen to this gay cunt for at LEAST 30 minutes a day because the radio won't stop playing his shitty songs. I can't stand how faggy his voice is and how he sings about love and nothing else. I hate him because the rest of the world thinks he represents us when most of us hate him because he ruined our image.

    chuds in are going to call me a chud and off-topic for this but I don't care
    Being one of the most profitable franchise, it is in TPC's interest to pander to the most amount of people possible.
    Sadly, if you have two eyes and a brain, you can easily notice how utterly terrible the state of real life is, and how the children specifically are being raised into even more obedient consumers than the previous generations, who still had some edge to it.
    TPC is only creating a game, that is representative of its generation : childish, innofensive with a huge focus on (you) rather than the actual pokemon (proof of that being the new chud customization and selfie cam are the only advertised new features from this game)

    Ed Sheeran is a singer for teenage girls touching themselves on how deep his mediocre songs are. He's the perfect to advertise the game to any teenage girl or gay.
    Normal people, with normal convictions and intelligence, have lost a culture war to the oversensitive and autists.

        It won't go back on its own. You, and every normal person, must go out and commit holy violence against the soulless hordes. Children are prime targets, ironically the older ones may still be salvaged, but the ones born after 2010 are only fit to be exterminated.

          The Detective Pikachu movie shouldn't have anything to do with this? I get that in a way it's also a PR move (because of Reynolds as the VA for Pikachu) but it's no different than making a movie for any other spin-off.
          And yeah, of course I remember "but the sex though" (and Katy Perry's "Electric") but that was part of the 25th anniversary celebration. I dislike it as much as Sheeran, but it made more sense for a celebration.

              I literally mentioned Reynolds as one of the reasons it could be seen as a PR stunt, so yes, of course I know of his roles in different films. I still feel like a single actor can't make a movie be a massive success. Pokemon in real life? The trailers? Meme shit like the whole sequence with Mr. Mime? There's many reasons other than just a single actor.
              >pm
              Yeah, I don't know nearly enough, but that makes sense. Thanks for the explanation. And it certainly fits.
              Still, as I said, it's still a waste of resources. None of these artists could convince millions of people to buy the games; thus, my initial point: it's a waste of resources no matter how you look at it.
              Also, the cost of a movie ticket (Raynolds) is pretty much nothing against the cost of both a videogame console + a the game.

            what pokemon game came out on PS1? Again, you're ignoring that this is the second MAIN SERIES game to come out on a CONSOLE. And the difference between being on a console vs. handheld is huge in terms of sound design, especially since the hardware of a 3DS means it would have to come out of a shitty speaker by design.

            Even if the internal systems could handle it, no pop singer is going to sit in a studio to record a song designed to be played through shitty handheld speakers on a 3DS game.

          The Super Famicom was capable of sampling. Tales of Phantasia had Yume wa Owaranai. Dragon Quest V, an SFC game, is one of the inspirations for Pokemon and the original developers were obviously highly aware of the JRPG industry (and have been since). The GB itself might not be capable of having regular music, but the GBA definitely was. The DS and 3DS could have fit multiple albums worth of, I don't know, Lady Gaga or Kesha or whatever was popular then.

          They didn't. There was nothing stopping Game Freak/TPC from including jpop or western pop in the games except a slowly fading margin of dignity.

          chuds in are going to call me a chud and off-topic for this but I don't care
          Being one of the most profitable franchise, it is in TPC's interest to pander to the most amount of people possible.
          Sadly, if you have two eyes and a brain, you can easily notice how utterly terrible the state of real life is, and how the children specifically are being raised into even more obedient consumers than the previous generations, who still had some edge to it.
          TPC is only creating a game, that is representative of its generation : childish, innofensive with a huge focus on (you) rather than the actual pokemon (proof of that being the new chud customization and selfie cam are the only advertised new features from this game)

          Ed Sheeran is a singer for teenage girls touching themselves on how deep his mediocre songs are. He's the perfect to advertise the game to any teenage girl or gay.
          Normal people, with normal convictions and intelligence, have lost a culture war to the oversensitive and autists.
          You are only witnessing the side effects

          yeah, hit the nail
          literally no one cared about this representation shit until very recently
          what you see is just an attempt to market the game to the newer audience, and western zoomers are unironically like this
          incredibly oversensitive, obsessed with ME ME ME, shallow and materialistic, mindless consooooooming, and defending anything that has big numbers attached to it even if the said thing is shitty or incorrect

          The media doesn't pander to zoomers, it brainwashes them. No one is naturally as materialistic and shallow as they appear. They're made that way by being barraged from birth onwards by predatory movies, music, TV shows, anime, cartoons, and video games. Pokemon has always been predatory, designed to get kids to ignore how awesome real life animals were by providing a sugary substitute. But at least the old games were closer to the source material and inspiration (that's what gives them the elusive soul people talk about).

            I consider my interest in real world animals to be one reason I like pokemon.

            Also, the "closer to real world inspiration" hasn't gone anywhere. Else we wouldn't get the likes of Dubwool, the Corviknight line, Cramorant, Barraskewda, Pincurchin and Copperajah, among others.

            I always want more animalistic pokemon too, but it's not like they aren't making them.

              How many, of the millions of children who played the games, started off with a natural love and awareness of zoos and encyclopedias and exploring local parks and forests etc? How many of them (millennials and zoomers) are now couch potatoes who run over squirrels and cats with their F150s without a care? How many vote to defund zoos? How many demand 5G when they're on a hiking trip to some pristine lake, and telecom companies gladly oblige? Pokemon didn't cause all of that but it's one part of a social disease.

              Imagine if the mega autists who spend thousands of hours shiny hunting and breeding for competitive spent that time outdoors, studying and observing life and nature. Video games are a vice, as much as I love them and you love them. Sure, a small minority of people are "healthy" and can moderate play time as kids, and it only grows their appreciation for real animals. I bet there are lots of vets because of Pokemon (then again, vets tend to be pawns of Pfizer and all that). But most kids don't lean one way or the other and Pokemon drives an artificial wedge in their love of real animals. It happened to boomers and gen x too. Anything that takes your eyes off of the real world is suHispaniciously convenient for the megacorporations trying to dump trash and pollutants and build cell towers and poison the water, all while bankers rape the treasury, taking all of our money and giving nothing in return.

              Ed Sheeran doesn't make any of his music. It's all either an AI or some Cohen behind the scenes. They need the new Pokemon games to serve as further infantilization of customers. It calms, soothes, and pacifies. Pokemon got its hooks on so many people and, despite losing a few milliion fans to a variety of causes (games suck, anime sucks, growing up, etc), GF and TPC is happy to dissolve and digest their current prey, that being the unfortunately weak-willed who can't control their impulses to buy new games.

    I'm going to be generous and say that GameFreak including normal songs into the soundtrack COULD work. The problem is, of course, that GameFreak are retarded, and rather than trying to find something that fits Pokemon thematically, or even just hiring somebody to compose an actual Pokemon song for the game, they just grabbed the first generic and inoffensive thing they could find that was recently made.
    They may as well have just shelled out the money to use All Star instead, I can guarantee that would increase sales a million fold.

      GameFreaks obviously didn't choose the song themselves retard, this is a random collab chosen by TPC to finish off the whole pokémon 25 music thing. The music video for the song itself has pokémon in it.

        Have you read the lyrics? I genuinely would not be surprised if they used an AI to pump out a bunch of different song lines and just slapped it all together. It's three and a half minutes of nothing, as if you're not even supposed to be listening to the lyrics. It may as well be an acapella song.

    I honestly just see it as a cheap marketting ploy and couldn't give two shits about it. Like, it's completely removed from the games as far as I'm concerned and I'll be judging them as if it didn't exist.

    Why the fuck is Pokemon so desperate like this?
    They're already at the top. Why don't they just do their own thing?
    Are they really so scared of losing any relevance that they have to pander to the lowest common denominator this badly?
    Even my normalfag/casual friends felt embarrassed watching this trailer.
    I don't get it.

    Western pokemon has always had this shit. Do you remember the early movies where they had pop congs for the movie and anime. It's just how they see the west.
    If it had some chink singing about farts and unicorns you would think it has soul because you can't understand what the fuck it is.

    I was saying that since the reveal, the art direction feels like some Chinese bootleg shit from the early 2010s. Everybody just immediately accepted it though, feels like I'm crazy. Been around since growing up with RBY, played every mainline entry, sad to see it go this way. For as bad as I thought it'd become, it was at least still Pokemon.

    Handles marketing and distribution in the west and in some cases English localization. They do this for most things that use the Pokemon IP.
