Level 80 sounds a bit high for no grinding at all, but I don't remember the game that well.

It is definitely overrated how difficult Cynthia is. The amount of content before Cynthia makes it very easy to overlevel and you literally just need to carry a coverage move for Garchomp so it couldn't set up (ideally by making her waste time on healing).

To give Gen 4 credit, Platinum ups the difficulty curve to a significant degree both in terms of late and postgame. But the idea it sticks out as a particularly difficult game is really cause a lot of people grew up with gen 4 back when they didn't know as much as they did, and she's tough to beginners. I really don't think she's capable of sweeping unless your team is totally toploaded into one or two pokemon countered by Garchomp or Lucario.

Honestly Gen 3 was harder to me, and to its credit, the Elite 4 and RR episode in Sun and Moon/USUM were on the tougher side as well if you didn't use experience share.

People complain about the difficulty of Pokemon games and I don't understand why. Pokemon was never difficult to begin with, it's your knowledge is what determines the difficulty.

Well, yes, but not entirely. Some pokemon games are a lot easier than others. Some Elite Four in newer games have pokemon with only 3 moves, like.. WTF?? You're an E4, you're supposed to be a challenge, and you only have 3 moves in your pokemon? Same thing with level cap. In SWSH you get the Exp Share for all your pokemon and can't turn it off, all your pokemon get over leveled. You get to the first gym with your starter in the final evolution. Meanwhile, in pokemon yellow for example, we had only a Pikachu against the first gym being Rock/Ground.
You just needed to catch a Mankey there though

We're like what 8? 9 generations in and other franchises on the hardware look 10x better while only Pokemon looks this lazy and lifeless and people will still say "Oh, its ok, Pokemon is not about graphics." Of course its not all about the graphics but this is a shot for shot remake, and we're like a decade from its initial release. Its like theres no sense of standards?  Nobody is being unfair to this company for how lazy and rushed their releases are. You literally can't be unfair to these executives who just check a couple boxes on forms to get this stuff out the door by Christmas, no matter how unfinished they look. At some point you look at how the other franchises are doing, see all the innovation, and then look at Pokemon and realize these guys are so rich they know whatever they pump out is going to sell because of diehard fans.

I was a huge Gen 4 fan, I had all 3 of Pearl, Diamond and Platinum; and Heartgold is probably my 2nd favorite game of the entire series. But that was a long time ago. The series has been on a downward trajectory for a long time now, and you can see that the people on top really don't care all that much as long as it makes them money. The fact a shot-for-shot remake, a game with all the infrastructure for its game loop already implemented, looks this shoddy in 2021 shows they do not care. I don't see an omen for bad things to come, the proof is already there.

That seems a little unfair.  The former is attempting to recreate the original specifically with the intent of faithfulness, also picking an intentionally barren room, the latter is updating an considerably older game to modern standards and is being more liberal with their changes to spice it up.  Frankly, wasn't a fan of the Switch remake of Link's Awakening's new looks and skipped out on it because of it.

It not unfair in the slightest. Regardless of your preferences, the lighting and post processing, even the texture quality is leagues better than a remake of one of the highest grossing franchises by one of the most successful game developers. Its mediocrity. If they wanted to achieve the faithfulness they might as well have gone fully sprited rather than this rough mobile game quality stuff.

Wish I could embed tweets here!





It will be a full remake with stylized chibi graphics, retaining the top down 2D gameplay of the source games.

They simultaenously announced an open-world "prequel" of the Gen 4 games, titled Pokemon Legends Arceus.





Both will be heading to Switch, with the remakes slated for late (q4?) 2021

i don't personally understand the appeal of seeing the same designs for several decades straight.

i also dont see any "evolution" in the designs of XV, its just correcting (to a point) the awful gfx decisions they made.

I really wish they would try new things and redesign their characters, even if it were just movesets. Nice to see Chizuru back though.

really dont mind if it is, its insanely rude as it is to come into a project thread where a person has been working on his proof of concept and make pithy remarks about "not another pots compilations." he can handle it.

Is Ryu's cr. HP supposed to be super jump cancellable on the first hit? First hit doesn't knock them up so I think that's pretty questionable utility.
