    Re: Pokemon Games Discussion Thread

    New Pokémon revealed yesterday for Sword and Shield.

    I need a Wooloo right now. Corviknight looks fantastic, as does Drednaw and the cover legendaries.

    Can't say I'm excited for Dynamax Pokémon. Just another throw shit at the wall idea like z moves and megas that will suck ass.

    The region and the game looks beautiful and I've already booked the week of the 15th November off for it.

    All I need is Corviknight and I'll be a happy boy. Dynamaxing thank goodness is limited to three turns and if I were to use it I would use it to turn the tide in a close battle.

    So apparently you're unable to get all the Pokémon in your game. Not just that they aren't in the game and need to be traded across (like every other Pokémon game ever). Like they're not even going to be coded.

    I've complained about a lot of Pokémon decisions like mega evolution, z moves, nostalgic kanto wankfests, and stuff. This, if true, is the worst decision they could have ever made. Such lazy design choice for their big main console game.

    The entire concept of Pokémon is to catch them all. I have a full living dex of all the Pokémon in the games ready to be transferred and with this news they might not even be able to. What's the point?

    I never thought I'd second guess buying a mainline Pokémon game but this might just do it.

    Just an unbelievably shortsighted & quite frankly stupid decision. Who in the hell even dared to push it this far? I can't imagine this not getting changed & rectified after all the blowback.

    Re: Pokemon Sword and Shield

    This doesn't bother me at all as someone who rarely saves Pokes from previous adventures and even more rarely brings them into a new game.

    BUT I understand there are a lot of folks unlike me in this regard and that this is a pretty big deal for this franchise. Agreed that it's pretty short-sighted and honestly surprised they thought they could get away with this one. Probably too late to save it now but with enough outcry I wouldn't be shocked if they promise to get it patched in the few months following release to bring in all Pokes. Really dumb decision.

    I have Pokémon that I've had for around 14 years from RSE. I'd hate to think they might not be able to be transferred further. Especially after they said they wouldn't do that again between generations.

    Re: Pokemon Sword and Shield

    Tbh, I'm sympathetic with the company. They're only getting increasingly more Pokemon's with each generation and having to add every single one while accounting for changes in graphics and mechanics means some sacrifice had to be made: either what they did, or longer development time, or not as many improvements so that adding them all in is easier. It's honestly sort of absurd to think they'll be able to keep transferring Pokemon from generation to generation when that number is ballooning to a really ridiculous amount. I get the frustration but I imagine they went with what they felt was the best possible decision. It would be cool if they patch in more Pokemon over time though.

    I’m with Silk on this. I prefer to start fresh with each game, but understand others’ anger at this.
