    The fact that we are probably obligated to wear succer uniforms in Galar gyms.... I wonder if every1 is ok with that

    I'm not a fan of it either. But it is what it is. And it's not a big deal to me.

    I don't understand why that would be irksome, though. We might only get to challenge the Gym Leaders once at their Gyms during the whole games, so I find the whole soccer uniform gimmick to be rather short-lived and not exactly troublesome.

    This would bother me more if I were a real Pokémon trainer, but it’s always bugged me that in Amity Square, you can only walk with what they consider a “cute” Pokémon. Like what in the world? I can’t walk with my Garbodor just because it doesn’t meet their subjective status of “cute”? This really feels like discrimination to me.

    My issue is that some Pokémon that were around during Gen 4 that are cute by normal convention aren’t “cute” enough for Amity Square. I’m talking about Vulpix, Togepi, Riolu and the other Baby Pokemon barring Happiny, Swablu, the rest of the first stage Starters from Hoenn, Kanto, and Johto, and Meowth to name a few. How is Togepi not cute enough to enter? It’s literally a baby and babies are almost always considered cute no matter how they look! You’re telling me that the ghostly balloon bird that has a reputation of kidnapping children to take them to the afterlife is cuter than Pichu the Baby form of Pikachu?! And how the heck is Torterra much cuter than Vulpix which is always portrayed as being adorable in both the anime and games?

    None of Cloyster's Pokedex entries give an explicit reason why it became ice type after evolution. Surely by now at least one should mention it.

    That sorta bothers me but what would irk me is if all the Galar gym leaders wear sports uniform which atm seems quite possible.

    gyms are a part deal of the game, and yes - wearing a soccer unfiorm takes the gym battle feelings for me atleast. I also dont like soccer atall.

    That Crystal, the first ever playable female protagonist, was not carried over for HGSS but instead just flat out replaced with Lyra, grinds my gears. Especially given IMO Lyra doesn't hold a candlestick to Crystak in the design department.

    I hate, HATE, the fact that Kangaskhan is hatched from an egg with a baby already sitting in its pouch.

    Makes zero biological sense. Unless it’s in fact a smaller conjoined Siamese twin or a tumour/hernia with a face. Though then the Mega evolution makes no sense.

    I completely understand why Game Freak didn't just recreate Kris though given that HG/SS were meant to be Gold and Silver remakes foremost, and since those games didn't have a female playable character, they decided to invent one.
  12. As someone with no interest in sports, I was initially a bit put off by this - not the uniforms specifically, but just the whole football theme the games seemed to have going on. But now we've learned more about the Gym battles, I'm OK with it. They've essentially taken the UK's football obsession and replaced it with Pokémon battles, which is something I can get behind! I've always wanted to have Pokemon battles in a massive stadium, and I think the uniforms will help make the experience more immersive. I also really like how the numbers on the uniforms are customizable - we'll be able to wear the Pokedex number of our favourite Pokemon, or some other number that holds significance for us.

    What I'm less keen on, however, is that daft cycling outfit! It reminds me of the Poké Ride outfit, and not in a good way. I always felt like the Poké Ride outfit was just a sneaky way to avoid having to program riding animations for every clothing item. Perhaps if these outfits didn't look quite so silly, I wouldn't mind having to wear them!

    Okay...? Eusine wasnt in GS, why not drop him from HGSS by that logic?

    Maybe Game Freak simply decided that he had to appear in HG/SS because of the Suikun (Suicune) subplot, whereas Kris was thought to be more disposable? Kotone (Lyra) looks like a brunette version of Kris anyway, so it's not that big of a change from my perspective.

    Wait all this time I thought that Lyra was Crystal/Kris and that she just got a minor touch up to look more modern. Now I feel like Boo Boo the Fool.

    Pokemon Masters has both trainers as separate characters judging by their teaser video/reveal trailer.

    I originally thought that as well until I realized they don't change character names.

    The fact that is you want to rematch Sabrina in Let's go you have to go through her maze each time. There are not many matches in the Let's go postgame (excluding the specific pokemon specialists) so putting one behind a maze isn't great.

    Agreed, and more importantly, what was even the point of replacing surfing with the water bike?o_O
