I've never seen a company kill interest in a game before release as badly as Game Freak. Usually the average player has to buy a game before realizing how shit it is, but Game Freak was kind enough to spare players the purchase.

>straight up cut half the Pokemon roster to "improve animations"

>animations are just ripped from 3DS games (if something even moves)

>models are just ripped from 3DS games

>overworld has worse textures than some N64 games

>a mediocre 3rd-party Wii game (Battle Revolution) from 12 years ago has better models and animations

>Masuda has stated multiple times that they're keeping the cut roster

>no one seems to have a clue what people expect from a Pokemon game anymore

I'm loving watching Game Freak's incompetence and apathy finally catch up to them after years of pulling this shit. But at the same time, I'm sad to see my once favorite game suffer like this. I'm not too concerned about the lack of Pokemon, but it's sad to see the clear lack of quality/detail put into the game. It's hard to believe the lack of national dex is what it took to get people to realize this.

Do any of you have any expectations left for Sword/Shield? Or are you just watching Game Freak eagerly dig their own grave?

Regardless of what you might think, Gamefreak is a big IP, they could fuck this up big time and the fans will still slop it up, they can never fail, why?

Gen 6 was forgettable garbage. I had fun with gen5

686b1b  No.1918

A major problem I have with Pokemon is that its generations are disjointed. Features get added and dropped (and consequentially gimmick evolutions change). Pokemon availability frequently requires generational transfers. Pokemon are designed clearly to replace or replicate what existed in prior generations. Almost every game is effectively a reboot with new villains fighting for a new (usually retarded) purpose to capture a new legendary (which is almost a meaningless category at this point). The rivals/supporting casts are usually entirely forgettable.

Gen 2 is my favorite generation because it is the most natural continuation in the series. Hoothoot isn't a Pidgey replacement, it exists alongside Spearow and Pidgey. Sentret isn't a Ratata replacement, it exists alongside Rattata. Old pokemon aren't forgotten, rare and otherwise forgettable ones like Jynx are even given baby versions to make them more relevant. The world presented by Gold, Silver, and Crystal is the most cohesive Pokemon has ever seemed discounting the originals.

Generation 2 stands above generation 1 in my opinion largely because of its additions and improvements. The amazing quality of life improvement of having a categorized bag alone is worth a mention. The day/night cycle and the phone serve to give the world a feeling of being alive unlike any other handheld game of its time, and also provide different experiences to different players depending on their luck and when they play. Then you have the mechanical changes and additions: Special attack and special defense being split apart, the additions of the dark and steel types, breeding, and hold items. Going back to cohesion, almost all the new evolutionary stages to older Pokemon are due to new mechanics that were not available in gen 1. Breeding brought forth baby Pokemon, the day/night cycle created umbreon and espeon, and hold items enabled the evolution of Onix, Scyther, Seadra, Slowpoke, and Poliwhirl. The only new evolution that isn't the consequence of a new mechanic is Gloom to Bellossom, which is because the sun stone didn't exist in Gen 1. Is that a little arbitrary? Sure, but it makes sense.

The story continues in the wake of the events of Red and Blue, which drive the plot of this game. Team Rocket, like in the originPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I disagree on 2 being the best, but it's still top-tier. I'm impressed Kanto was fit into the game, but the region is pretty empty with not a lot happening beside the gyms. It's alright for post-game, but it still seems underwhelming coming after a game with said region having more content there. I also like that gen 2 allowed full backwards compatibility with the previous games allowing for trading forward and backward between generations. Every game since has been a one-way transfer. (Even with Bank, which I thought could at least allow inter-gen trading with supported games. Glad I never paid for it.)

>Breeding brought forth baby Pokemon

Breeding was one of the best additions to the series, while baby Pokémon was one of the most pointless.

>I adore the aesthetics of gen 2

>the very traditionally Japanese setting differentiates Johto from Kanto (and every subsequent region in that manner) and contributes a lot to the game's aesthetic appeal.

Same. I wish more games focused on proper setting themes. Gen 1 was fine for being basic considering the limitations, the scope of the game, and it was the first in the series.

Gen 3 really didn't take advantage of the tropical setting as much as it should have. I liked Fortree City and Pacifilog Town, but nothing else seemed as creative as far as building designs. At least overworld theming improved with added weather effects.

Gen 4 had the vents scattered around for the Underground (subtle and not really as remarkable, but it was a nice touch). More cities had distinct functions and looks to them compared to previous games (coal mining, industrial port, marshland, snow resort, etc), but the buildings could have been better designed to belong there.

>while baby Pokémon was one of the most pointless.

True, but they are kinda cute and they're a way to remind people that certain Pokemon exist without giving them an OP evo (which they did for Magmar and Electabuzz anyway).

Also, Tyrogue served a legitimate function in tying together the hitmon line (and having one of the most interesting evolution gimmicks in Pokemon). The Odd Egg in Crystal also gives a chance at a Pichu, Igglybuff, Cleffa, Tyrogue, Smoochum, Elekid, or Magby. The Jigglypuff line is accessible early, but the rest can normally only be accessed later in the game. So I consider that opportunity, which probably also wouldn't exist were not for baby Pokemon to be very welcome for team-building purposes.

You're assuming Pokemon hatched from an egg have to be baby Pokemon in that scenario. Remember, this is what hatches from a Kangaskhan egg. (Mother and child together.)

I can see what you're referring to in that it's a logical a baby hatches from an egg you're given, but Pokémon is far from logical.

I don't know of any, but that sounds like fun. Even a ROM hack of Battle Revolution or PokePark would be good to take advantage of the Wii models. (I'm still sad that 3D Pokemon models peaked about 10 years ago before GameFreak even attempted it. Why does Genuis Sonority not help GF? They clearly have more experience with 3D games.)

1st, it actually set up the show nicely and made me think I was in for a fun adventure it was, but Ash never really developed and there was so much needless filler

>favorite opening theme?

Pokémon World or Master Quest

>do you prefer the older episodes subbed, or dubbed for nostalgia?

I've watched the banned episodes subbed. I considered watching the full first season or 2 subbed out of curiosity, but is it really better enough to justify? The show's whole appeal to older audiences is purely nostalgia. Dubs fill any nostalgia craving much better.

>do you still watch it? if so, subbed right?

I stopped watching religiously when the voices changed starting in BF, and altogether during DP. I watched the first couple episodes of BW and XY subbed because each time some faggots said the show was good again, only to find out it was just the same old shit.

>favorite episode?

The episode he fought Brock. I'm probably biased because I had that on VHS as a kid.

>favorite opening theme?

As a kid, Johto League Champions. I actually didn't like the first opening as a kid

Currently, Johto Journeys. (Pokemon World comes close.)

>do you prefer the older episodes subbed, or dubbed for nostalgia?

About the same. 4kids voices were actually decent, and the dialogue changes usually weren't as bad as people made them out to be. (I'm not saying they were good, just that they weren't as bad.) Sub is probably objectively better, but the whole series appeal at this point is nostalgia.

>do you still watch it?

Does anyone watch it? I rarely hear kids talk about the show anymore.

Does anyone else remember Pokemon Chronicles? It was the first series they did that didn't focus on Ash. Only a couple episodes had him even speak, and it was a couple lines at most. They focused on either side characters or even just the Pokemon.

61b293  No.1927


I miss my VHS. It had 3 episodes, some old game commercials, the full Pokerap, and commercials for 2 other anime. Pretty sure one was Kimba, but I forget the other one. I wanted to watch again to look up the name, but my mom just assumed the VHS tapes were all garbage and gave them away without asking. (Which was a shame, because I thought that show looked interesting, whatever it was.)


The whole series is wasted potential. The series sets up cool things within its universe frequently, but never expands upon them. It doesn't want to stray far from its familiar formula that's easy to produce and market. It just teases you with something better and never delivers. I think this applies to both the games and show at this point.



Did your mom give away your copy too? Or are you me?

I miss being able to post cute Pokemon stuff on an active board that wasn't too full of degenerates. I was okay with some porn on /v/ at first, but it's clear Mark only selectively bans porn dumps and lets them derail threads when he feels like it. (I'm pretty sure he's the sole reason /v/ is so degenerate. At least /vp/ forced you to be more subtle about it and not be an open faggot.)

I told VP if they wanted a better game, they could have made it themselves.

Of course their idiot mods banned me for now, but the satisfaction of winning and adapting to this "culling" is very addicting…
