Also, this.

This wont be in the games, just like solrock/lunatone werent in Sun/Moon. Expecting tooo much from game freak

I'm just annoyed that they keep doing games with themes based on stuff that was already turned into Pokémon before. It's like they don't even care admitting that they've ran out of ideas or whatever.

Everyone's complaining about the random encounters, but that was actually the thing that got me the most excited. It's good that they're clearly separating the main series from the Let's Go games.

Really?

I mean, really, really?

The starters are very eh (Grass Chimchar? Really, that's the best idea you had?) and it's showing no improvement over Sun and Moon.. I'm like random encounters and happy that gyms seem to be back (yet unconfirmed), but again it just seems really lazy. Dragon Quest XI has a similar style and yet it looks so much better, the teams aren't that different in size, Game Freak needs to be more ambitious.

I am very happy that the reveal leaked the distinctly child focused feel that Sun and Moon's had though, hopefully that means a more veteran focused game

Yeah, if anything that's about the one good thing I can take from that presentation, how they went about it. No random look back through the generations, no kids playing at school, no bullshit, let's get straight to the point and talk about the game. It felt more mature, but of course, I don't know how much that will translate into the games. Obviously hoping for stuff like Z-moves being removed isn't very realistic.

Also, gyms were very much confirmed, they literally used the word (thank god).

Eh, not as good looking as I hoped, really wanted the game to be more open, maybe not full open world but close to it. That bunny is so gonna become Fire/Fighting lul.

Looks like random encounters and that the Pokemon are not visible in the world. That is sadly a huge turn-off for me. I really hope i am wrong

Am I the only one who noticed that fucking RANDOM ENCOUNTERS are back?

Edit: oh, I guess not. Seriously, what an instantly massive disappointment that was. Huge turn-off for me. At least gyms are back, I guess... time will tell but I'm really not excited about this atm. Starters looked super lame as well.

It looks good, but I honestly expected a bit more.Why random battles are back?Camera seems to be a mix of third person and "fixed".The fixed cameras and random battles shouldnt have come back.Tradition is one thing, but sticking to old mechanics is another.

But I have to say that Im still interested.I just hope they push the franchise foward in other aspects.

Maybe after how many fans loved the idea, they couldnt implement it during the creation of the trailer. Perhaps there is a chance of it being shown closer to release date? 

Knowing Gamefreak, I really doubt it.They like playing it safe because Pokemon will make them millions upon millions of dollars either way.

 

The only thing that would make Gamefreak do some changes that might be considered "radical" is if a mainline game dosent sell well.And thats not happening anytime soon.

SOOOOO HYPED!!!!!!!!!!! The games looks so good!

I knew you would be happy with the direct XD



Looks like good ol' Pokemon in HD and on a hot console.

Sword/Shield is gonna be the best-selling Pokemon games since Gold/Silver.

True. Perhaps the Switch games costing more than the 3DS games can affect its sales. 



Pocky Lover Boy!

For a franchise that usually sells around 15 million units for each game?Hardly.



Very mixed feelings. They're still basically using the same models as Let's Go, which is disappointing. Some environments looked great with nice art, while others suffer from poor textures, Not happy that they're going back to random encounters with the overhead camera angle. The first true HD mainline Pokemon game should have had Pokemon on the overworld at all times. Return of gyms is ok, but the game really needs to do much more now that Pokemon is going HD.

Now I'm worried this will be like an HD version of X and Y rather than a true evolution of the series. I hope they prove me wrong in the months to come, because right now it looks like Lets Go did more to move the series forward than the new generation is doing.

I hope they get some direct help from Monoliftsoft next time.  Moving from 3DS to HD development can't be easy.

Lol don't even get me started on "openness", that region legit looked like a straight fucking line.

Also, another thing I'm disappointed in, or at least I think I am, is the soundtrack. Of course, it's hard to tell from just what we got, but there were already some really... loud songs, there. Felt very Sun/Moon style to me, and that game's music is trash.
