Big whoop.  Catch a new pokemon or play the old ones again.    They're not obligated to cater exclusively to the obsessive adult fanbase who refuse to accept anything new or different.

What is even new in this game? Making Pokemon bigger? How exactly is that original and exciting? 3d camera? Should have happened the moment they switched to 3d with XY. Multiplayer raids? That's has been a thing since multiplayer existed.

I'm not that blind a fanboy that I can just accept them removing features and the things they're adding is completely not up to par. Also once again I'm going to mention the overall quality of the game. I can't imagine how someone could ever defend something as noticeable as N64-quality trees, or Wingulls statically hovering 3 feet in the air, or the bike clipping through the ground, or NPCs just popping in on the screen. Is this kind of amateur programming really something we should just accept from the biggest media franchise in the world?

This game takes place directly after SSV and SSIII takes place years later. So it makes sense for Rimururu to still be using her SSV design and be this young.

The way I see it, Dynamax is their solution to effectively give every single available Pokemon the equivalent of a Mega Evolution rather than only giving a small percentage (26 Pokemon, or 3.214% of the Gen 7 National dex, to be exact). They tried to do this with Z-moves in Gen 7 as well, but how exactly are they going to explain Z-moves in SwSh? Unlike Megas, Z-moves were explicitly tied to the story of Necrozma, even if it was very subtle. So not only did they do it for balance reasons, they did it because it fits the narrative.

Yeah, it's going to suck not being able to use Mega Charizard X or Flyinium Z Landorus-T or whatnot, but if it creates a more level competitive playing field then I'm all for it. I mean, just look what happened when Mega Rayquaza, Mega Lucario, Mega Kangaskhan, Mega Gengar, and Mega Salamence were introduced; the only ways to level out the playing field was to either make everything else stupidly broken, or remove the broken elements. Adding Dynamax and removing Megas and Z-moves, as I see it, was the middle ground between those two extremes.

And those complaining about mot being able to transfer certain species to SwSh, you're acting as if SwSh are going to be the last games in the series. I'm willing to bet that in November 2020 when Sinnoh Remakes or whatever gets released that finally allow you to use your precious Kommo-O or Bidoof, you'll forget all about this; after all, they had to make it possible to migrate those Pokemon over to Pokemon Home for a reason besides just leaving them there to rot.

Don't give me that "it's all for competitive balance" stuff. That kind of logic is why we have that functions bullshit in MvCI. Majority of people don't give a crap about that. They just want their favorite Pokemon and want to use them. Also the notion of Gamefreak caring about competitive balance is pretty funny. All they care is putting a new gimmick to entice fans. Megas and Z-moves just introduced even more broken Pokemon and you think Dynamax won't?

And how did we even imply these will be the last games? That's the actual problem we have with it in the first place. That Pokemon are stuck in limbo on their shitty mobile app (reminder that Home isn't a Switch program) until Gamefreak decides to put them in whatever games they make next. And you know full well they give all the popular Pokemon top priority so some Pokemon will either be left out for way too long or even never come back because of how obscure they are. Just look at Glameow and Purugly. They almost didn't show up at all in the 3DS games.

Megas and Z-moves were just confirmed not to come back either. Really this whole Dynamax thing is one giant mistake. It's not even original and exciting. It's literally just "it gets bigger". They put so much unneeded effort into making Dynamax models for every Pokemon even though they can just resize them through coding.

I mean, I'm not gonna beat around the bush here.  From my point of view this all just looks like the internet's usual outrage over nothing.  Let's be brutally honest:  There's what, 800+ pokemon by now?  With more new ones on the way?  I'm willing to bet money that out of those 800 pokemon, every single player has at bare minimum 500-600 of them that they do not give a soft-boiled shit about.  Nobody carries the same investment for each and every single pokemon.  If they didn't announce this and just left, say, 100 pokemon out of the base game without telling anyone I bet it'd be months before anyone even noticed.

It is unquestionably not as big of a deal as it's being made out to be.  Eventually Pokemon was always going to grow too big to keep including everything in every game.  They're trimming the fat instead of wasting time, money, and resources on content that they already know that no player was ever going to bother with anyway, and I don't see why that's being viewed as a negative.

Yes we should just ignore that SWSH has the quality of an upscaled 3DS game that has the laziest animations in gaming history. They have absolutely no excuse if they're still so incompetent that NPCs have pop-in, WIngull literally just hovers statically, and Pokemon move animations are still as bad as they were since X & Y (seriously just look at Double Kick).

If sacrificing Pokemon to improve the game's quality, which Masuda literally said in the new interview, then they completely failed at it. It's not even just a meme that Gamefreak are incompetent developers. Iwata had to personally help them with GSC so it can even run properly and it was him that made post-GSC Kanto possible. Let's not even go into them making so many different 3d models for a single character/Pokemon like Lilly who had 10 of them in SM. Apparently Dynamaxed Pokemon are their own models which is one of the main reasons Pokemon had to be cut.

Pokemon is the biggest media franchise in the world. There is really no excuse for this incompetence especially when you compare it to other mon games like Digimon Cyber Sleuth and the recent Dragon Quest Monsters games that all had less than half the budget Pokemon games have. Even just generally comparing it to almost every modern game today SWSH looks like it's stuck in the PS2 era.

And it's like I'm the only one not upset by this film.

As someone put it: "Its too benign". It doesn't look impressive, but people are absolutely flipping out about it. I mean, c'mon >..< chill the fuck out. There's worse.

It feels like the typical hate/hype train bandwagon, really:
followers said:
famous person said:
This movie looks like shit!
This movie looks like shit!

If it looks like shit then it's shit. There being worse doesn't mean a single thing. And people having a shared opinion isn't a damn bandwagon.

Yeah, skinny Robotnik is really messing with my brain. I love Jim as much as the next person, but hoo boy, this is really stretching the limits here.

I'm even more concerned of the fact that he's not even remotely trying to act like Robotnik. It's just Jim Carry acting like typical Jim Carry wearing Robotnik cosplay (in the ending).

My problem with the designs is the hypocritical double standards. Their reason for completely covering up the women and removing all of their sexuality is because it's to be "mature" and "realistic' (they're exact words). At the same time majority of the males have either their pecs on display for no reason or are outright shirtless.
They're making it eSports friendly. Remember when someone was playing R.Mika(or Cammy, I can't remember) and the event manager made them change the character's main costume to another with no butt showing? It's smater on their end, even if their excuse is super dumb.

Esports certainly has no problem with Soul Calibur VI which has the raciest designs in the series yet. Talim is wearing a clearly visible thong FFS.

It's literally a fucking loot/gatcha system but they took out the pay system but left the f2p grind hell. It actually makes it worse.

Imagine playing FGO but you can only get quartz by grinding the game and you have to do that for days and even weeks because the prices for the loot are mad expensive.

Holy fucking shit. When even Max is so defeated and depressed that he doesn't even want to play anymore you know something's fucking wrong with your game. This game's microtransactions is worse than Battlefront 2.
