I don't think I've ever seen such backlash towards any of Game Freak's choices. Good. Here is hoping the board meetings involve some "the fuck were you thinking?".

I'd like to think that nobody wanted to make this choice ince the issue was brought up. There's still a ton we haven't seen or heard, and im pretty sure they weren't talking about the battle animations when they expressed their want for more expressiveness.

Masuda delivered the news himself, i dont think he was thrilled to deliver it

Jun 12th 2019 at 4:04:11 AM

I'm pretty certain this wasn't intended as a creative choice or to make people buy the third version. This was done to finish the game on time. ...They should probably have delayed the game instead, but TPCi is a cruel mistress

And they're going to have to promise to patch full compatibility in if they don't want to get review-bombed anyway

[up] So it's basically a repeat of Sonic 06 is what you're saying, right? That game was rushed out and it really showed with all the bugs and glitches.

Only if you refuse to view the world in anything but extremes. As far as we know this is just a limited cutting of support for inter-series compatibility, not hordes of bugs

Reminder that this is the most profitable franchise in the world, the models are future proofed, and walking animations were done for over 800 species plus formes 2 years ago.

So, nope. It is Masuda being out of touch, and Ohmori being a hipster.

A bold claim,do you have a source to back up it up though?

None of that actually means that Gamefreak isn't working with a significant time crunch. They remain a small studio, and we have no idea how compatible the SWSH and SM software is, or if any new animations will be necessary

I don't think the lack of customisation or a battle frontier in ORAS had this much of a massive backlash worldwide.

Nobody is happy about this, even the Japanese fandom is furious and their version of the bring back national dex hashtag is trending.

I'm only hoping that the immense backlash from this makes them reconsider this being the policy shift going forward.

Man. Here I am trying to catch up with every game for the new gen (with the hope of transferring a few over here and there) and now I find out it might be a waste.

Welp, guess that's on me for taking so long.

Once again, wokka wokka!

So heeeeey, I started a randomize run of Ruby version now. This time I just random'd starters, movesets and a few other things, not wild & trainer Pokemon. My poor fool rival got stuck with a Caterpie, while Wally got... a Gengar, that almost broke the capture cutscene. Cool stuff

I remember seeing an LP where the Zigzagoon Wally borrows to catch Ralts was shiny.

It was hilariously heartbreaking.

Sadly, Wally did not keep the Gengar.

Sword and Shield cannot be delayed because it is tied to the anime and merchandise release.

Allow me to copy a post i made in the Sw Sh thread

Check out a quoute Masuda made just last year concerning gen 8

"We're definitely always thinking of that kind of forward-moving functionality, especially since we've introduced Pokemon Bank," Masuda told Game Spot through an interpreter. "Now, up to Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon, you're able to store your Pokemon, and we know they're very important to everyone. I mean, obviously, people would be very sad if they couldn't use their Pokemon in a future game. So, it does get complicated when you talk about the details and we're still figuring it out, but we do have plans to find ways to let players use their Pokemon in the next game."

So this leads me to believe they really had to think long and hard befire deciding on this, especially considering future releases.

But that still leaves the question of why we couldn't use them this time. All the reasons given so far are clear as mud.

Times like this the release date "When it's done" doesn't seem so bad anymore, upon hearing stuff like this.

I think it's important to note that one of the reasons they said no transferring was due to "balance issues".

It leads me to believe that they want people to play the game as they made it before allowing any pokemon to come through and wreck everything.

Keep in mind that we couldnt transfer to Sun and Moon for a long while.

Just let those who want to obey their obsessive railroading not use Pokemon Home and allow those who do the option of using their own team. I always spat on this excuse for them not having the likes of Pokemon Bank available at launch.
