The expectations for graphical fidelity of low-cost mobile phone games and full blown console releases are vastly different.  Nobody expects high-end graphics from an app they downloaded for free, so Pokemon Go can get away with it whereas a proper console title that costs full retail price can't.

Like I said before, they way they've handled Pokemon over the years meant that it would eventually become too big to be sustainable.  There's simply too much content.  Regardless of how anyone feels about it one way or the other, this was always going to happen eventually. Ideally they would've wised up long before now and axed the idea of a national dex years ago before everyone came to assume it was a matter of course.

You all do realize that Garbodor and Vanilluxe have been seen in the game. They in. I honestly don't get the hate for the likes of Garbodor, Electrode, and Vanilluxe because if anything it's kinda great how much personality they were able to put into such simple and silly concepts.

My biggest gripe has always been that these are supposed to be the wildlife of this world, and a lot of these "here's an object I saw laying around the office" Pokemon could never possibly exist in nature, even in Pokemon-world's fucked up magical version of nature.  Like, there is no way you can convince me there is any ecosystem that would facilitate a plastic bag full of human-produced trash sprouting googly eyes and starting to walk around.  Nor is there any evolutionary benefit for an animal to assume the appearance and smell of a bag of garbage.

It doesn't take much for me honestly, just make it at least passably convincing that it could actually be considered an animal.

Vaccine Man, Mosquito Girl, Carnage Kabuto, and Deep Sea King confirmed.



Seems like they're playing fast and loose with the relative character sizes.

Person Man you're not being well behaved yourself :3c

You know what, that’s totally fair.  This is clearly not going to lead anywhere productive.

I also do want to call myself out for getting totally blown up with this announcement; There I was getting all excited that they’d take the opportunity to clear out some of the less inspired Pokémon like the ice cream cone, and now they throw in a new one that’s just a pile of whipped cream and strawberries.

Golly gee would you look at that.  There are more mechanics in the game than what the limited E3 demo showed off.  Boy howdy I sure am glad I waited until we had all the information to make a judgement about the game and didn’t just throw a giant hissy fit over nothing.  That would’ve been super embarrassing.

Gigantamax Corviknight looks Dark Souls as hell.  Definitely want one of those on my team.
Yeah, big mechanic, its a giant uninspired Mega Evolution, soooooo new. TRASH.

They take out mega evolutions and z-moves and you bitch about it.
They add a new mechanic that functions as both mega evolutions and z-moves in one and you bitch about it.

And they wonder why Pokémon fanboys have this reputation of being unpleasable, entitled brats.

Dropping this in this thread because I doubt people would give a shit elsehwere.



Pirate Warriors 4, which will cover up through Whole Cake Island.  Historically they've added about 10-15 new characters with each PW iteration, so we can probably expect Carrot and a handful of other no-name jobbers who are less important than Carrot.

:EDIT:  For the 22nd anniversary of One Piece WJS ran a one-shot drawn by Boichi, artist of Dr. Stone, that recreates the Zoro vs Mihawk fight from chapter 51-52.

Speaking of Wayforward, they got the anime studio behind Kill la Kill, Studio Trigger, to do the intro for Shantae 5.

Their general rule about comparing character's feats and strengths mathematically and determining who's stronger overall as opposed to giving the win to the first one who could get one good move in one specific scenario.  Death Battle tends to shy away from the "X could beat Y if X did this, this, and this" line of reasoning and is more about "X has demonstrated this ability that exceeds what Y has demonstrated they're capable of defending against."

^  Unless they pull one of those "it stands to reason ____ could also do something similar."

It's been a hot minute since I've watched FMA, but from what I remember its version of alchemy was based on the deconstruction and reconstruction of the four classical elements, whereas bending is about manipulating them.  That is one thing that could skew the fight in Edward's favor;  Aang would have to work with what he has available while Ed can create whatever he needs.

Wayforward never, ever fails to deliver.



Ironically, this River City Ransom game is being localized in Japan as part of the Kunio-Kun series.  So I guess they've come full circle now.

In this week's edition of "Hollywood bullshit nobody wants:"  60's Hanna Barbera children's variety show The Banana Splits is being rebooted into a Five Nights at Freddy's ripoff slasher flick.

You don't get to say that it is there just because you're satisfied with the bare minimum on both effort and content. That is the absolute pinnacle of arrogant ignorant white-knighting.
It is literally and objectively new content.  Pokemon has never had multiplayer raid battles before.  It has never had a mega/z-move/transformation mechanic that can be applied to any pokemon and not just the handful that they want to market for the anime.    Again, you don't get to decide that it doesn't exist just because you, personally, did not approve of its inclusion.  Just because you're angry doesn't mean you're right.

Goddamn Dudley Dursley's all over this place.  You just want more more more more more.  Who cares what it is or how hard it is to make or how expensive or how much stress on the developers it causes.  Y'all just keep demanding an unreasonable amount of content that you're never even actually going to use.

Its not being ignored, its simply non-existant. Giant Pokémon with "specific movesets" for said state is no big deal, its literally a worse version of Mega Evolution, with less uniqueness because its literally a bigger model instead of a cool new one with another ability. Raid bosses have been a thing since forever, how is that new in this game? No "new feature" is being ignored, because no new feature exists, its simply a crappier version of things that already exist. And they have yet to give us an explanation as to why we're having so many Pokémon removed while NOTHING is being added.

You don't get to decide something isn't there just because you didn't personally ask for it.  That is the absolute pinnacle of arrogant, ignorant fanboyism.

Yes, I agree that it doesn't have anything new at all when you deliberately choose to ignore all of the new things it has.  Wow.  Good point.  Really opened up my eyes with that one.
