    How many more "Step in the right direction" games does Gamefreak have to put out until they release a game that is up to modern game quality standards?

    14hrs while trying to beat the game as fast as possible but you're complaining that it's short.
    1. It's better than x/y's where you can beat it in 7-8hrs(when trying to beat it as fast as possible.)
    2. I beat the game in 2 days while still exploring everything and finished around 35hrs. Did the post game and pokedex and caught 1 of each pokemon and finished around 100hrs. So... Yeah you can put time into if you pace yourself correctly.

    I just got it as my first Switch game. It's my first Pokemon since Emerald. I'm having a lot of fun because it has a bunch of stuff I always wanted in a Pokemon game as a kid: character customization, online options, big-ass "open" 3d world. I'm definitely not a fan of how they implemented trainer appearances in the wild. It's horrendous. If you think the NPC pop-ins are bad, imagine random ass characters popping up, completely static, then vanishing within 5 seconds and that happens every 5 seconds or so in the wild. I will definitely be turn that off if I can or just cancel the Nintendo online subscription I'm currently trialing. People complained for weeks about the pokedex but I don't recognize 80% of these Pokemon in the 400 that can be caught so I'm not affected by that at all. They changed the mechanics in a way that completely eliminates grind, with the always-on exp. share and easily abused online mystery trade. Performance-wise it feels like last-gen with horrendous net-code/network infrastructure.

    Hiccups? More like constant seizures, the bloody raid search doesn't even refresh and every asset ingame has a delay and it randomly pops up.

    Wait... is it locked behind the paid switch services? I've been doing alot of surprise trades and dynamax battles without it.

    A few days ago, I have beaten the Elite Four in my copy of Pokémon Shield. I haven't touched the game since. I've been replaying through Pokémon Platinum on my old DS system and I genuinely am enjoying it a lot more. I'm surprised that I am enjoying an older game despite how more advanced the graphics are in Sword/Shield.

    Something many don't mention is post game focus on catching gigamax and dynamax is ruined without online. The AI npcs do not change, they do not evolve, and make winning harder raids impossible single player without many many resets and pure luck. There is also the fact that refreshes online happen every 5 minutes, but the timer for raid battle joining is 2. Its way too much time for ANYONE to find a raid battle, and you cannot manually refresh! By the time refresh happens, the battles have expired! It needs severe overhaul for single player and multiplayer alike when you cannot utilize the required features to even catch what is there.
    Serious solrock guy why are you even in raid battles you don't even attack you just self buff! Even the magikarp has attacks!

    Anytime you ask “I don’t understand why they did this” it’s because they wanted to cut corners lol.
    Game freak has shown to be incredibly lazy over time and I’m saying this as a fan that started way back in Pokémon gold on the GBC.
    Any efforts at streamlining the game is made to cut down development costs because all they care about is the bottom line. Fan interest has never and will never be their concern unless they can heavily profit off of it.
    The sad thing is this will probably be the best selling Pokémon game of all time due to how accessible this game is for most people and the fact that people have been waiting for a mainline Pokémon game that isn’t hand held only for a very long time.
    However, this is showing concerning trends and the developers when interviewed have indicated that this is the direction they want to keep going in, which if is truly the case, I will probably never buy another Pokémon game again.
    The 60% reduction of the Dex, cutting over 100 moves from the game, not letting you even bring Pokémon in from Home if they have those removed moves, forcing you to either delete the move or just not use the Pokémon at all. The lazy animation work, the lazy environment textures on copy pasted things like trees. The extreme lack of postgame content when compared to previous generations. The list goes on and on.
    Ultimately I think that this is going to be the tipping point for a lot of fans and it’s probably not going to cost Gamefreak very much because their will always be more newer fans that never experienced the previous generations. And I don’t even mean that as a nostalgic old head, even Gen VII offered better quality and more content than this (For $20 less mind you).
    The removal of a significant amount of my personal favorite Pokémon that I’d always work towards obtaining in every game I could (Salamence, Mienshao, Luxray) also killed my hype for this game.
    I heavily disagree about the 1 step forward and half step back statement from Kdin, the game heavily feels more like half step forward and 3 steps back.
    There was also the mention about how Gamefreak needed more support from Nintendo to make this game better and I also heavily disagree with that. The Pokémon franchise as a whole is one of the most successful media brands out there to ever existed. Gamefreak has continually now had a history of never putting forth their best effort when it comes to these games starting all the way from the bug-ridden gen I games. And that is not the fault of Nintendo. They actively hamper their own development team by trying to cut down costs and meet deadlines, stating that things aren’t feasible, when that is nothing but a lie and the numbers are there to back that up.
    With all that being said, hopefully someone reads what I’ve written and at least has an understanding of why there are those that feel very torn and disappointed with this release

    Instead of requiring players to transfer from countless previous generations... why not just include all Pokemon in existence in each generation's two games? And don't make me go to Target and GameStop to get codes.

    I can think of a reason, less than half the mons that the previous game gave me AND 50% more expensive, and the narrative looks super crappy compared to the previous one.
    In fact, I could think of a tons of reasons why fans wouldnt pick it up.

  • fsdfsdfsdf33dsf

    Kdin, how does it 'Make sense' that the generic moves have lame animations, when their excuse for cutting half the pokemon was wanting to put more effort/time into the stuff they were leaving in? This level of shilling for game freak is the exact shit they're banking on - Might as well cut corners and half ass your game when people will buy it anyway

    All I want from Pokemon -literally all I want- is a remake of Crystal that changes only 3 things: graphics, music, and camera and brings them to 2019 levels.
    Anything else for me is a non-starter.
    So it sounds like I'll be waiting a while to dive back into this series.

    It was the first MAINLINE Pokemon game on the console, not the first ever Pokemon Game.
    It's not worth the $60...its inconsistent and half baked. Why would anyone pay $60 for that...
    Have you seen other games for the Switch????
    The bar was set high way before this game came out... and it landed pretty low.
    I do hope if they do make another Gen that it's actually as great as it's hyped up to be.
    They held your hand through the entire storyline...in older gens if there was trouble you went straight for it...not the gym lol
    Leon and Sonia seemed to have more excitement in their lives compared to the protagonist. It was NEVER like that...
    This game was weak and disappointing, there were points where it was super hype then dropped immediately.
    Overall it was a good 3DS game.

    I don't think having the different gym leaders for different games is great. You can justify the different game pokemon to encourage trading and being social (especially when online wasn't really available, so you had to go to events or talk to your mates).
    But this seems like a move to Make you buy the two games. gyms are a big experience, the unique way of getting to the leaders in the later gyms. and to have two different leaders in the two gyms feels iffy, 90% of people will only ever buy one copy of the game.
    If you could then fight them post game, that would be okay.

    Datamines shows all 800+ Pokemon data is still in the game, just not the models. Switch is way more powerful than 3ds and they have no reason not to have all of the Pokemon in the game especially since all previous Pokemon are essentially complete and it's just a copy and paste job. Creatures inc make all the 3d models. Gamefreak doesn't do any of that. So no one has any excuse to not have all of the Pokemon since all the data has been completed since 2013 and a completely separate company does the 3ds models. The work is already done. It leads to just laziness to not add it in.

    I've already spent 100 hours in Pokemon Sword and I only have 4 badges though I've completed over 300 raids and have completed 75 percent of the dex.
    The wild area/raids are so fun. The Post game is literally creating comp teams and shiny hunting.

    Are people really saying this is the first mainline game to be playable on the home console? Has no one heard of the Gameboy player attachment for the Nintendo Gamecube? lol

    That's how I played Pokemon Emerald at least.

    7:49 "It starts like pretty much any other Pokemon game: you've got a hot mom,....". That line did kind of make me wonder, outside of Ash's mom, how many of the Pokemon protagonist's mothers DIDN'T give birth in their late teens? Most of them look really young to be having a 10-13 year old child

    It took me to 16 hours to beat the main story and 5 for the post game. And I catch every pokemon on all the routes, talk to every character and collect all the items. so you can say SwSh are lacking content.

    No offence but you've put 14 hours into the game and everything you said in this review was complete garbage. You have no idea what you are talking about and this is coming from someone who's put in 83 hours worth of gametime. The only thing you got right was the soundtrack is awesome.
    This game is revolutionary. Everything about it is a new and interesting step forward. The only negative is the awful servers so finding raids with others is almost impossible. Please dont listen to this review and dont take what they say serious that'd be my advice
