It's not even good for a pokémon game. PLGO doesn't have those ocarina of time trees even if the shading isn't as pretty.

Also,

I'm pretty sure that's how X D looks in Dolphin because that ain't showing properly on an old TV, but still, the texture quality for the backgrounds is there.

Who called it Untiered/ZU and not FU? It would work so well. Why am I using an Unown? FU, that’s why.

I second HIR's vote for Monolith Soft, but I also wouldn't mind Bandai Namco since they already have a good working relationship with Game Freak, and after all they've done with Smash.

I also wouldn't mind Atlus, since they really know turn based RPGs, but I feel like handing it off to a Sega owned company is some sort of sin.

@Vespi: I think Bandai Namco could work, too. I just figured that, between Smash, a plethora of DBZ games, Tales stuff, and other things I may not know about, they're stretched pretty thin. And I wouldn't expect the level of detail in the pokémon models that they achieved with Pokken. XD

I’m upset with Sword and Shield in general too but I do think the trees are going to look better in the final version. It’s too jarring to be in the actual game, I think it’s for sure just in the demo

It's not like we want to start them or cheese our way through the game, which, as a reminder, doesn't even work,
We:
1. Don't want our Pokemon held hostage in Home in the first place if they can't be transferred
2. Just want our Pokemon in the game in the first place

Also I agree with Willspyro, I'll probably just use the money to get Death Stranding.

Just a quick marketwatch
Pokemon Sword and Shield is second most preordered game during E3
(First place goes to Call of Duty Modern Warfare)


The games are selling quite good


We got that open world-ish area with moveable camera.
And not only that, but that open world area has raids
AND live multiplayer.
And we still only have the surface of the game, there is a LOT we don't know about.

We dont even have the second battle mechanic known that ties in with Dynamaxing confirmed by official sources
FOR ALL YOU KNOW, YOUR #1 FAVORITE POKEMON WILL BE IN THIS GAME AND EVEN HAS A SPECIAL GIGANTIMAX FORM!


Gamefreak has already said the lack of every pokemon isn't because of laziness
they are removing clutter.
It's easier to balance out 500 then the full 1000


We may even just lose 100 mons.
But also for every mon that doesn't get in, you will appreciate your favorites that do.


Pokemon Home is just that, it's home. All your mons will wait for you at home.
Some pets can be taken along on the vacation but not all of them.
Yes you will miss the ones you can't take along the vacation, but you will experience new friendships along the way. A whole region full of wonderful pokemon to catch and train.
And when the vacation is over, you go home. Your new pokemon friends meet the old ones and eventually the cycle continues.

This whole "We need every single pokemon!" is the equivalent of a rich child saying he isn't going on a vacation unless he is allowed to bring all 802 of his pets.

Um, excuse me, but you horribly misunderstand the situation. We don’t want to bring our pets on vacation, we want to bring them back. We literally just had a vacation in Hawaii.


Ok but seriously calling people entitled is up there with some of the weakest arguments I’ve heard.

not trying to start a fire but I still think people are overreacting to sword and shield. first of all none of you know what's actually in the game because you have never played it so don't make assumptions on something you have no idea about like post game content, in game content, story, etc . This is the first real main series pokemon game on a home console. There will be improvements with the one after and the one after that and etc. Look at diamond and pearl for example. Slow, clunky, and not had dumb decision making (only 1 catchable fire type) the games after are all proclaimed by many to be the best game in the franchise. Black and White compared to diamond and pearl are world's apart both graphically and functually despite being on the same console.

gotta catch em all is a slogan that hasn't been used since gen 2

Totally agree. Imo, you shouldn't let the Pokedex ruin the hype for the game. There's probably still some features they haven't revealed yet.

For the record, they brought back the slogan when XY came out. It's even used in two of the English XY anime openings (though one of them is a cover of the 1st season opening tbf). However, I won't be surprised if they drop it again when SwSh comes out.

Not link version
Thank you to all of our fans for caring so deeply about Pokémon. Recently, I shared the news that some Pokémon cannot be transferred to Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield. I've read all your comments and appreciate your love and passion for Pokémon.
Just like all of you, we are passionate about Pokémon and each and every one of them is very important to us. After so many years of developing the Pokémon video games, this was a very difficult decision for me. I'd like to make one thing clear: even if a specific Pokémon is not available in Pokémon Sword and Pokémon Shield, that does not mean it will not appear in future games.
The world of Pokémon continues to evolve. The Galar region offers new Pokémon to encounter, Trainers to battle, and adventures to embark on. We are pouring our hearts into these games, and we hope you will look forward to joining us on this new journey

"that does not mean it will not appear in future games. "

Of course, but it also doesn't mean I'll be buying this game or any future ones that continue with this.

Really feeling like this is something that's going to be happening for the foreseeable future for mainline games, and I'm not into the idea of only having part of the Pokemon I care about in each game that'll change around each time. God forbid something weird happens and transferring ends up impossible after a point for certain species because of this and my Pokemon end up forever split up.

Well, I'm not convinced by the message. Games like Breath of the Wild could manage tons of data, so why couldn't Sword and Shield? Part of the charm of Pokemon is to play with your favorites and transfer your childhood mons to the new game, and they took that away from us. Not only that, they remove Z-Moves and Mega Evolutions, features we got use to and show the results of what's suppose to be a growing franchise.

I really wanted to try Sword and Shield. I like the starters, and the region looked nice, but with all the cut features and lazy graphics, it doesn't convince me. Dynamaxing is not exactly something very creative. It's the same Pokemon, but bigger. Not much effort put on it. I don't care if they delay the game or if I have to wait for the next generation. I want something done far better than what they did. I'm not going to contribute to their money addition if that just demonstrates to Game Freak they can do whatever they want with the franchise and still have earnings for it.

Please, PLEASE
If you don't agree with their decision, and you're angry
DON'T BUY THE GAME
Do not financially support them If you're against this. You're voting with your wallet whether this was a good idea or not.
If you buy the game then you're giving them a pass. It doesn't matter if everyone says they hate the game, if they make money they won't give a ****.
I don't want to shame or make anyone who wants to buy the game feel bad, but it's always this situation where people are angry, and yet still buy the game to "review" it or experience their anger at it to get angrier or reaffirm their opinion.

Gamefreak has the talent, people, budget, and DATA to give us all the Pokemon and the things from the other gens. You have to be crazy to think they don't. They have gotten lazier and lazier with each passing gen and it only keeps happening because people enable their behavior.
