Nessa is soooo good looking.

So it seems like dynamaxing gives you access to a Z-move of sorts. The rock one creates a sandstorm, and the air one raises speed. I'm not sure if the BP is always the same but it's interesting that it has an additional effect like some of the exclusive z-moves. I wonder if it's based off a pokemon's primary type?

Okay, i heard you can't transfer any Pokemon if they aren't in the Galar Region Pokedex, since Zweilous was in the trailer, think in might be in the Pokedex?

I still think the Masuda quote is absolute pants.

The animations we've seen thusfar look exactly the same as the XY ones and the USUM walk/run cycles. And Pokémon has never been a balenced fuckin game.

Again. The comment of "We need to do this to get the Pokemon games out to make y'all happy" seems to me that development seems pretty tight each installment, and why Pokémon should not be an annual series.

I don't think Pokémon fans are gonna die if we get a Pokémon game ever 2 or maybe 3 years. Zelda and Mario don't tend to get annual installments (Mario mostly for the platforming games) and those franchises and their fan bases do well.

Biennial Pokemon is definitely the right move. We don't need a mainline game every year, especially not if it leads to absurd crunches like this.

If they HAVE to put out a game every year, maybe harken back to the golden age of outsourced spin-off games from Gens III and IV. I miss those days.

I would be totally okay with them dropping the Upper Versions and Remakes if it means that the main series gets a biennial release date and a notable rise in quality and content.

I don't think Pokemon Company agrees though

Anyway, I don't think its honestly THAT bad thing that game doesn't contain all the pokemon at release.

Time to change the style, for now

The answer is to let Creatures or Genuis Sorority or some other studio develop a yearly Pokemon game (be it a third version or more like Colosseum) to help stave off stagnation and let Gamefreak take their time to actually finish the games for once.

Your preferences are not everyone else's preferences.

I don't want to sound like a clickbait article, but between this, the mentions that they might be dropping previous beloved mechanics, and the developer complaints about work overload and brutal crunch time, we might actually be getting close to the Pokemon bubble bursting.

The question is, what would Pokemon do after the bubble bursts?

Change or die. Adapt and evolve. If the bubble burst then they will have to rethink their game. It could possibly open more doors for more pokemon spin-off to find the footing again or complete change the standard pokemon game formula. Let be honest, Pokemon games have been stagnant for a long time, each game only introduce new pokemon and introduce some new mechanic( which get forgot next gen most of the time).

We could also do with some new spin-offs. Move the mainline Pokémon games to a bigger gap in order to focus on quality, and have other studios make some new spin-offs. You already have stuff like Conquest, Snap, and that kind of thing. Make some new ones. Or give the old ones sequels. Give the franchise some variety while you work on improving the main games.

I'd love for a new Snap, Ranger, or Pikachu game.

It kinda surprised me when i learned that a major franchise like Pokemon have so little spin-off games to speak off. Did they hold the IP with an iron grip or something?

They had more back in the N64 through DS era. It only started slowing down recently. But IP licensing is part of it as Pokemon is owned by Nintendo, Game Freak, and The Pokemon Company so all three have to agree on something for it to get done, as well as dealing with other companies like Genius Sorority or Chunsoft.

My thing with Pokemon is I have personal goals in stages:

  • Beat the game with 4/6 or 5/6 new Pokemon
  • Clear any and all post-game content
  • Catch 'em All

Hm. Guess I cant Catch 'em All anymore.

Yeah. The 3DS era has been so bereft of spinoff games outside of microtransaction laden mobile content.

And considering how there's been a slight drive within Nintendo and TPC towards such Mobile games, I thing TPC is taking note that when people mean "spinoff" they mean "Go and Gatcha Games" now.

Good to see Mimikyu in that dex. That means all of my shiny babies, sans Froakie (because Starters aren't expected to carry over most of the time), are eligible for transfer.

Something that seems to have been overlooked is that the limited Pokemon per game is a new policy going forward, not just a one-off thing.

… Have they said anything if you can use Dynamaxing in PvP?

Also the new policy is totally because they have an excuse not to worry about Dynamax Wailord.

Geez, I don't think I've ever seen this much of a negative response to anything Pokemon related before.

Guess it's true what they say; it can take years to build a good reputation, and just 5 minutes to ruin it.
