Visuals are important for every game, and people are just mad because some modern Pokémon games look worse than indie projects despite being part of the world's most valuable media franchise. I don't think Pokémon fans are asking for games that look like Red Dead Redemption 2 or something (and if they do, they're expecting too much from the Switch); I just think people want a game that looks visually appealing.Honestly, all the talk of the graphics and frame rate drops bothers me and makes me wonder when did this series become about graphics and other visual aspects rather than gameplay?
That’s a sad state of affairs tbh, and i blame capitalism for it. Sometimes communism sounds like a much better trade off (not that it is lmao).On more powerful hardware...sure, they're capable of it, but why bother when you can rush out something that looks 'good enough'?
The problem is that they don't have more powerful hardware. Pokemon is a Nintendo exclusive, and until Nintendo comes out with something that's better than a 2015-era SOC with a Maxwell GPU, they're stuck with what they have.On more powerful hardware...sure, they're capable of it, but why bother when you can rush out something that looks 'good enough'?
Oh I'm well aware, we're def not getting anything close to modern-day graphics for Pokémon games anytime soon. With that being said, BotW-tier graphics would be pretty nice, especially considering how long that game's been out already...The problem is that they don't have more powerful hardware.

At least the hat isn’t as ugly as the one on SM. I took that thing off the very first chance that I had gotten. The SwSh default hat was also unattractive I thought. The default hats of both protagonists have been pretty awful looking since Gen VI with only the female in USUM looking good.I'm hoping for customization to help with that, which will most likely exist in the new games.
Believe it or not, this is also a callback to Eevee's Pokédex entry back in Gen 1, which stated that Eevee reacted to different stones. That was its main gimmick until they added new evolution methods. In fact, IIRC, Umbreon was supposed to be Poison type and evolve using a Poison Stone, but those were scraped for Dark.Ice Stone/Leaf Stone were a godsend for the Gen 7/8 games.
Exactly, the lower grade holes are unpredictable and when you unlock it you might often just find a pokemon that you already have.ultra warp ride
despite beating ultra moon five years ago i just used it for the first time today - and i hate it
i like the concept but don't like the execution
and the other reason is that technically Gyms 5, 6 and 7 can be done in any order, so they need to be about equal in terms of power.
Morty not having the singular new Ghost is a crime.
Why isn't Leon more muscular?
He literally has weights and bars in his old bedroom, which shows he had a history of being an athletic person. He should have a much more toned and defined physique.
You can't beat Mahogany Gym before getting Surf. You need to beat Team Rocket there before that gym opens up and you need Surf to start that encounter at the Red GyaradosPlease pardon such a late reply, but when I saw this, I wanted to mention that it's technically even possible to do the 7th Gym and surrounding events before even beating the 4th, because Mt. Mortar can be traversed without needing Surf. So that really skewed how they had to balance the Levels and Pokemon teams.
