If the last one got closed, then here's a new one I'll probably forget for weeks at a time, but you can talk on it as long as you're not picking fights.
We know the problems with the franchise, TPC isn't gonna change because we yelled at each other on a Spyro forum.

Next Games:
Pokémon Scarlet and Violet - Way too Early (Nov 18th)

Better not mention a certain game studio....one that has proven they are really lazy and pokemon fans should stop buying their games......

I don't get the narrative of poke dude company being lazy. They have to meet super harsh deadlines with little funding because the video games don't make as much money as the merch. They have to play it safe because they want guaranteed money. This is why I hope arceus is successful because of how much of a risk it is. Sure it doesn't look like a game that took half a decade to come out but it's something.

Plus saying a company is lazy seems kinda rude. Because japan is notorious for overworking people. Saying that they are lazy kinda just shows a lack of understanding of how to criticize a game.

Lazy implies that they just sit in the office all day and mess around. I don't think a japanese office job with 100 employees that has to meet a super high quota and strict deadline has time to do that.

instead of comparing it to botw where it room 5 years to make and also had another game studio helping out that is also another genre. Game freak is by themselves for this one.a better comparison would be smt v. The other open world game about catching monsters

How is GF not lazy? Just a reminder they've been reusing the same game models for several gens now. Oh how evil of me to criticise a big corporation, I'm sure TPC are crying in their sleep tonight

Honestly, dude, the entire reason the previous topic was closed is that we don't want to argue about Gamefreak and their competency as a game studio. So if you don't intend to play the game, I say don't bother posting.


All you are doing is whining about something that won't even affect you because you don't intend to get the game. On top of that, no one wants to hear it.


At this point, just stop, because all you doing is making yourself look bad.


While it may be flawed, a majority of us are excited about the game. GF is entering new territory and that's something to be happy about. Is it perfect? No, but I'm excited by the game and think it's best to be optimistic about it and the future of the series.

Do some people not realise that Pokemon is a billion dollar franchise because they don't only make video games? There's a long running anime with several movies, multiple manga adaptations, spinoff games, endless lines of toys and merch for 800-900 creatures and a trading card game among other things.

reusing models is more efficient to making a game than making 1000 more of them. Do you really think games make everything from scratch? That just seems like a huge waste of time, money, and resources. No other game has ever reuse resources from last games like botw 2, monster hunter, smt, the sims, etc. It's a pretty common practice for the video game industry.


A better complaint can be that pokebuddies reusing models isn't being taken advantage of because the models don't really interact with the game. They usually just stand, walk, get hit, attack. It's not much. Like imagine how cool it would be for different pokelads to have one unique attack animation. Like how cinderace kick a rock for it's attack. What if arbok using bite looked more like a snake slithering up and striking.

I'm not defending game freak and I never attacked you or called you evil for dissing the game. I'm just saying your critique is lackluster because you don't try to explain your critique. Like imagine going to a hotel. The hotel room stinks. The bathrooms are dirty. The bed had bloodstains. Etc. The hotel asks you "how was your experience?" And you reply with "it was bad". How is the hotel suppose to know it was bad? You just said it was bad and nothing else. Not how the rooms were stinky, bathrooms were dirty, etc.

Yeah smt v looks a lot better than pokemans that's the point of me saying it. See how much stronger your claim of a game being bad is when you don't screech out "game lazy" and actually explain why it's bad.

I don't think GF is lazy, I have no reason to think they are. I definitely think Pokemon has grown a lot slower than other series such as Mario and Zelda, though (in terms of quality and such) Also isn't ILCA making BDSP? So that's not even gamefreak. People should buy pokemon games if they want to buy pokemon games, hopefully legends Arceus will give gamefreak a push to maybe improve the formula more drastically next generation

A separate studio is making BDSP, yeah. GF is focusing its efforts on Legends.

I'm honestly more excited for BDSP then I am Legends. I'm kind of burnt out on big open world video games, but gen 4 had some of my best memories as a kid playing games so I'm very glad BDSP are shaping up to be competent and interesting remakes, as opposed to a 1:1 copy like most of us, myself included, initially thought

#18 Posted: 18:30:58 23/08/2021
I'm just worried about the replayability of legends. like do the wild pokemon scale up with you? Is there gonna be a story or is it gonna be like botw where the story doesn't exist and it's all about exploring? Is it gonna be more than 20 hours long?

its why I dislike the idea of the box legendary not being catchable that some older fans want. punishing players for not playing a game at the release date is really dumb and harsh

I never got my first Zarude code or any of the newsletters for that matter even though I was subscribed for a while.
I wish obtaining all mythicals was like getting Magearna in the Alola games where you can get it whenever you want even after those games stopped being relevant.

Playing Pokemon Sword but with a brand new challenge

Pokemon Illiterate Sword

Rules
Play through a Pokemon Game but the catch is that the language the game is in CANNOT be a language I speak, and I am not allowed to look up the translation for anything. Thus I have to use my knowledge of moves, abilities, and so on to figure out what attacks Im being hit with and using.
ON THE PLUS SIDE I'm catching a lot of mons (French for this playthrough) that are foreign to me so I can transfer them to my main file for Masuda Method shiny hunts.
