Game Freak really needs to step up their game with the yearly powercreep mechanic

otherwise like the new design alot tho and generally looks nice

im hoping for the game to be more challenging for older pokemon players, but I really like the aesthetic design as well as the big area designated to catching pokemon.
I feel that game freak has also lost some creativity in the development of new legendaries through.

All things considered, pretty hyped.
The main selling point is obviously the wild area thing, with the pokemons roaming on the overworld. The few designs we've seen are great too imo, except the legendaries that i didnt like much.
Interested to see how much of an open world this is going to be, but it looks promising.
Corviknight looks badass af, and Wooloo is a cutie

Dynamax looks a bit lame, and the name is terrible.

Corviknight is my favorite thing to come out of this so far.

I hope it's gonna be harder than the last 2 Gens and that it won't take ages to get through the early parts of the game with their long ass intros and tutorials like Sun & Moon had.

I love the region aesthetics and design. All the pokemon are really cool aswell. The legendaries are badass. I loved the images about the pokemon roaming around the map aswell.

Dont care for the dynamax thingys. It seems a bit stupid

Edit: They look even stupider while in the gym battles. Wish they would keep it at mega evolution. Dynamax and the z-moves are really meh

i actually fucking hate the artstyle that pokemon has had since gen 6
they introduce leon as this mega badass and he looks like someone id see in a morning cartoon when i was 3
how the fuck am i supposed to be intimidated by him?
in the older games when you were just a sprite running around you couldnt tell that your facial expression never changed
now youre this sociopathic monster who runs around saving the world and watching children fight their abusive parents with no feelings whatsoever but this dead fucking smile
the pokemon themselves look good but its so hard to care about anything that happens as long as the people in the games look the way they do

they keep adding all this useless shit that ruins the games and i hope they aren't continuing to do that. can't really say if this dynamax shit is gonna do that or not but sun and moon was awful, i still can't believe they fucked up a pokemon game it was literally boring

i think the issue stems from the fact that younger kids nowadays want a really basic simplistic and easy game experience like when i look at what my sisters are playing in comparison to what i was playing at their age, its really dumbed down which i think was the main issue with sun and moon was that huuuge tutorial at the start where you couldn't explore and they explained EVERYTHING in a fucking 20+ year old franchise they had to explain EVERYTHING and forced u to go through the whole thing

it looks to go in that same direction again but u cant really tell at the moment but this dynamax thing i don't like it

Honestly the game looks like it could be good but I can't help but feel like it's gonna be a disappointment. I didn't even end up getting sun/moon because friends that got it on launch were not into the game at all.

Also literally forcing people to have other people to play with, or paying to play online, just to get a complete dex is a really fucking bad move imo. Even version exclusives back in the day were annoying, but now (if you don't have friends with the game or the will/means to pay for online access) you need two switches and two copies of the games so that you can trade and get one complete dex.

Sif made it into pokemon though which is neat.

Hyper competitive VGC player here (1310 hours in Sun/Ultra Sun and it's all VGC breeding/laddering lol), travel to tournies etc (the community is actually a lot, if not exactly like TF2 size and prize money wise) Nothing excited for me for VGC from this whole video.

I'm holding out judgement, but god so I dislike the stupid raid battle dynamax shit.

If anyone here plays VGC competitive, holla @ me btw.

What intrigues me the most is the overworld and the Pokemon just out and about in the landscape. The whole aesthetic of the game in general I find to be interesting, makes me wonder what kind of UK-inspired stuff they'll have. For the designs they showed today I'm not 100% sold on most of them except the raven, sheep, and turtle but I'm sure they have some interesting stuff that just isn't revealed yet.

Not a fan of the whole dynamax thing, never was much of a fan of the power-ups in the recent games, seemed just like a big gimmick that doesn't change much of the gameplay.

i actually don't care what they do (they're certainly committed to bloating the game by adding megas and ignoring them, z moves and ignoring them, now dynamax) but for the love of fuck please just nerf scald

i've said all along that scald should have a 20% chance of lowering attack by 1 stage. why is the only type that is immune to being burned weak to the move? it makes no sense F scald
