    Pokemon Sword & Shield GENERAL DISCUSSION Thread [Spoilers]

    About 75-85~ new Pokemon are created once every three years starting with Gen 6. Even if GF adds 100 new Pokemon every single generation, which they won't do, it would take another 20-30 YEARS to reach up to 2000. By that time? We'll have gone through so many innovations of hardware and...

    I never started that, so there's nothing for me to stop? With all due respect, save your generalizations and Kids Game cliche's for someone else.

    Pokemon Sword & Shield GENERAL DISCUSSION Thread [Spoilers]

    It's only been one week, and I have never done the things you speak of. Furthermore, this "internet campaign" that you try to paint in a bad light is what people actually do in order to spread information. The vast majority of people do not tune in to the latest Pokemon news within 24 hours of a...

    Nope. Pokemon are officially Starbuck's seasonal flavors, and hundreds of Pokemon may or may not be featured again for years. Obviously Sword and Shield will have all 151 Gen 1, because those Pokemon thought, "This region is cold, but I'll make it work."

    I'm actually laughing at this. What a mess. So Masuda has doubled down? Welp that's it then, they just think they can weather the storm. Anyone defending this change has to acknowledge the fact that when GF claims "We had to exclude all the Pokemon to make the presentation and graphics extra...

    Pokemon Sword & Shield GENERAL DISCUSSION Thread [Spoilers]

    Unfortunately we're at the most, a few tens of thousands of fans outraged by this. Reddit's recent survey related to this issue tallied up 52,000~. That's a drop in the bucket of the 10~ million they nabbed with Let's Go. The good news however is that internet vocal minorities can stir the pot...

    That would be pretty exploitative, and should receive serious pushback if it happened. Another problem I worry about is how reliant the franchise has become on smart apps/smartphones. It feels like it will take away from Sword and Shield if the main trading hub will be in Home when it...

    Imagine Sword and Shield loot boxes, paying 4.99 for 3 random Poke's, hoping you get your fave. Oh boy. I'm pretty sure he was being facetious? Maybe chill just a bit. Might want to give it a break @TsengHyena or else the mods will have to step in. The squeaky wheel gets oiled, as they say.

    On principle I don't like it when people try to censor each other, but you're right, they were overusing it. But no joke, that is how I will think of Home for a very long time. Pokemon Prison, Pokemon Detention Center: Should Have Stayed in Alola, etc. It will be even worse when lots of fans...

    Pokemon Sword & Shield GENERAL DISCUSSION Thread [Spoilers]

    You're absolutely right. I can't spend every day venting about this, but I still just feel so upset about it. I should just take the summer off from Pokemon to try to cool down. The only thing that could overcome how disappointed I feel is if GF significantly improves the Wild Area's...

    I did play through Sun. Its story wasn't better quality than Gen 5's just in my opinion. Lillie's story arc felt like it was cut short after Cosmog. It wasn't that big of a deal of course, I enjoyed it for what it was. The characters they've introduced so far in Sword and Shield look more...

    Pokemon Sword & Shield GENERAL DISCUSSION Thread [Spoilers]

    I agree. I just can't help but subjectively feel like fans value Pokemon so highly that we have allowed the games to falter, for many years at that. From the E3 footage, Sword and Shield's overworld art design looks much less inspired than Alola's. The Wild Area's draw distance is impressive...

    Pokemon Sword & Shield GENERAL DISCUSSION Thread [Spoilers]

    That is a very well thought out and fair opinion. But admittedly, it is also a pretty low bar. I would question whether people should begin expecting more out of Pokemon now that they're paying $60 instead of $40, but Game Freak knows all too well that this question was already answered with...

    Until we hear more, it "sounds like" Gen 1 is in the Galar dex thanks to Let's Go.

    Pokemon Sword & Shield GENERAL DISCUSSION Thread [Spoilers]

    Don't worry, I was just being facetious. I believe they already confirmed all Gen 1 Pokemon are in Sword and Shield. And by the way, serious breeders are just as hardcore of players as competitive battlers. I was one of them. So many mechanics to manage in order to breed Pokemon with just the...

    Don't you worry Mr. Hardcore Genwunner! All 151 Gen 1 Pokemon are safely intact in Sword and Shield.

    Or you could just retcon Ekans' move pool to learn Poison Fang earlier on, or any other Poison move really. They've remixed older Pokemon's move pools so many times, so this is hardly a compatibility-breaking issue. Also, just technically, most dragons have subpar pre-evolutions that are...

    Pokemon Sword & Shield GENERAL DISCUSSION Thread [Spoilers]

    One phrase I noticed that keeps getting repeated in these recent interviews is "giving all the Pokemon a chance to shine." They use this phrase almost every time they describe Dynamaxing. Guess what phrase they throw in as they talk about cutting compatibility? I can't help but wonder if they...

    Well there's always the option of voting with your wallet, but unfortunately I get the feeling that Sword and Shield will still sell millions of copies regardless. Besides, 75%~ of Pokemon revenue comes from merchandise, so that's where people should start anyway. From Masuda: So yes...
