    Pokemon Scarlet & Pokemon Violet - General Discussion/Speculation Thread

    You say battling isn't the core part of the pokemon game yet each story revolves around combat, types only matter in combat, and the only system that doesn't change or rotate out is the combat. There's no point in having a system with experience and level-based evolution if battling is only side...

    Pokemon Scarlet & Pokemon Violet - General Discussion/Speculation Thread

    Actually I think it's even worse because this is one of those changes where it's really hard to see how it impacts other parts of the game without further thought. What is the point of potions or status healing items when you are no longer required to either battle wild pokemon or trainers? It...

    Pokemon Scarlet & Pokemon Violet - General Discussion/Speculation Thread

    There is a PC in the bag, you can craft items for health, it is already an open world game, and most importantly: that's part of a risk/reward cycle.

    Pokemon Scarlet & Pokemon Violet - General Discussion/Speculation Thread

    No mandatory trainer battles with no mandatory wild pokemon battles is just wholly bad in an open world game. Pokemon has fully commited to removing any semblance of difficulty, challenge, world, and character from their games.

    BDSP: Worst Pokemon game?

    On a quick search I can't find a GitHub repository or something like that, but mods made for Pokemon Platinum did not need any further modification to run smoothly on BDSP, implying the base code needed to allow the mods to function are the exact same. Additionally, exploits present in the base...

    BDSP: Worst Pokemon game?

    The coding for BDSP is almost symbol for symbol the exact same as D/P

    Gen 9 Pokedex - Discussion/Speculation Thread

    Some pretty even distribution so far between generations. I can't fault them for putting in less of the prior 3 generations (as they are the easiest to transfer between games atm) and wish the lovefest would stop with Gen1 but I get it at the same time Since Sawsbuck is in the game; I highly...

    Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Speculation/Discussion Thread!

    As someone who for the past decade-plus has been pretty hard on the "pokemon is declining to be an easily repackaged jack of all trades made to appeal to the lowest common denominator" train in terms of how the games overall quality is from entry to entry, I do have to say that a lot of the...

    Legends: Arceus - General Speculation/Discussion Thread

    I for one think that while it is important to acknowledge the ongoing climate of game development as well as the potential that TPCi just simply plans on showcasing stuff on their lonesome, it is still a dire sign that in the biggest video game presentation for the entire year, at the conference...

    Legends: Arceus - General Speculation/Discussion Thread

    I could see a new forme but nothing drastic in terms of changing bodily forme/size/etc. Likely just a different forme with a rainbow/multicolored flange rather than one that changes color with the plate. Actually, could this game be about how the plates were spread around Sinnoh? We know that...

    Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Speculation/Discussion Thread!

    Yes all games are cashgrabs yes TPCI is a business thank you so much yes. It still doesn't mean the consistent lowering in overall quality needs to continue or is justified (Which, for the record, there is no proof of this in BDSP *yet*)

    The Boxart looks like Palkia and Dialga transforming.

    The game is named *Shining* Pearl and *Brilliant* Diamond. It's just a fun play on the title.

    Legends: Arceus - General Speculation/Discussion Thread

    The artwork is gorgeous, my goodness. Gives off a *lot* of PMD vibes. Unfortunate that the release date is so soon after BDSP. Shouldn't be an issue with getting it- moreso an issue with an earlier release date meaning they're more confident in the product they have now than (I) would have...

    [Speculation] The "Which place is this" thread

    Starting your game in a peripheral area has been probably one of the only constants of Pokemon since it's inception, lol. I'd wager that we don't start in Twinleaf Town, obviously, but I do feel as though Canalave, Celestic, Eterna, or even Sunyshore are likely start points as peripheral towns...

    Legends: Arceus - General Speculation/Discussion Thread

    I wonder if Gyms will function like territorial leaders throughout the Sinnoh region in this time period? Not like kings or warlords, more like a representative of the town that compete with other representatives in friendly combat. My brain is forgetting the word for this. Imagine that Byron's...

    Most important returning features?

    Honey trees, auto-repel, being able to see natures/ivs/evs on the menu, toggled EXP share, B/W EXP grade, DexNav. Everything else should remain the same as the base game. Dynamax dens are almost certainly there but are kinda mid.

    Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl Speculation/Discussion Thread!

    It's just... not? HG/SS has an art style. B/W has an artstyle. Every game *has* an artstyle and to say that it was due to the DS's technical limitations is just beyond silly. I don't see how you can come to this conclusion without likewise drawing up that any game on limited hardware doesn't...
