Was watching some video on youtube the other day where the guy talked about his early access to the game.

One thing I found interesting was his talk of the catching mechanic. He said it brought about excitement and a nervous rush or something to that extent.

I mean think about normal catching. You use status effect (sleep, para, ect) and then weaken them. Then throw balls till caught. No worries, just time consuming. Only worry is if pokemon has explosion or like teleport, or the occasional crit killing it when trying to weaken. Barely any do and you know those dozen that do.

This new method though, the pokemon actually runs from you. You use a berry or two to calm them, ease them, make them easier to hit, ect. Then you're throwing balls and praying each throw that they don't run away upon that ball not working.

82 huh nothing to write home about. Talk about the very bare minimum. And Nintendo has the balls to charge 60? Goddamn lol

Personally, I'm OK with it.

That’s a weird statement...so a low 80s game shouldn’t be $60?



Glad I'm not hardcore Pokemon fan, the community is way too much at times.



As expected, reviewers are not judging the game based on what they wish it was but on what it is trying to do.

It was clearly not gonna be a crap game, but one would expect critics to treat laziness a little more harshly. This is basically a 3DS Pokémon game rendered in HD and being sold at full price... never mind the lack of content and it being a gen 1 remake. It's just a fucking lazy game, and there shouldn't be an excuse for it, but once again the critics (and even the general audience) show that if it's on the Switch, it doesn't matter.

After all, this is the same audience that's paying $20 yearly to play P2P online and defending it.

I feel like all of us have gone numb to the repetitiveness and laziness of big game companies nowadays. If you look at most of the new releases today there is no innovation just slap better graphics on it, change a couple of things and sell it for full price. The only games that I have played in the last decade that sorta blew me away with innovation was Demon's Souls, Bloodborne, and M&B Warband, everything else just feels like an upgraded version of something I have already played before.

I'm not surprised but I hoped for this to be a bit lower. Reviewers should really start to give big games harsher scores, their range of scores is way to small. Now it's only 5 points below X&Y, which is just absurd.

Hopefully it still drops to 70 or something.

Thats not a good comparison. The people who reviewed XY is not the same people reviewed this. 

 

And who knows! Maybe they actually like this game! And that must be shocking for you

Shouldn't they judge it based on what was given to them? They probably liked what was given to them.

It's interesting that some people here criticized reviews and scores like they played this game and they know that this game deserves lower scores.

Most negative on internet this game received because it's more casual Pokemon game instated of more core Pokemon game that people wanted but, that doesnt mean its bad game that deserves bad scores.
