Oh my god people literally saw 3 minutes of gameplay and are already saying that the game is trash.

I mean.... you already had 1 user shitting on the thread  HOURS before the Trailer.

Gotta say I'm pretty underwhelmed, graphically doesnt seem like a big deal, back to random encounters, starters feel a bit generic. Seems Gamefreak just playing it safe ocne again and not giving it their all.

Actually, I'd argue that they are giving it their all.

Savage!

Definitely was not a good idea to have a visual based trailer when that's clearly a weakness of the game, but still better than just having a logo *cough*Animal Crossing*cough*.



eh, I'm not convinced. New starters look bad. Why does the fire starter have a plaster on its face? And why is there another monkey? I suppose at least it isn't a fire monkey this time, but monkey starters are still seriously overdone!

And the new region looks so incredibly linear. The early regions were really square and had kind of a boring layout, but at least it was impossible to see the route you'd take round the region from the beginning with lots of different routes between cities. Would have been nice if they'd actually taken advantage of new hardware and made a big map with lots of cities and no set route through it. IIRC in gen 1 there were a few gyms that you could do in a different order if you wanted, would be awesome if they had all 8 like that with future routes/gyms difficulty scaling based on how many badges you had or something. It also looks kind of... small? Compare that to something like GTA or Skyrim and it really does look poxy. With the amount it sells each release there's no reason at all they couldn't have a big detailed map like GTA other than laziness. Of course laziness is kind of gamefreak's speciality

Ah well, hopefully the anime/movies are good. I haven't been too interested in the games since gen 4 anyway, they've just stagnated for far too long and as much as people bigged this up as a revolutionary Pokemon title it really doesn't look anything like that. Just looks like more of the same. I'm happy about that in terms of mechanics (random battles FTW!) but in terms of map design and starter choice I really would have liked something much bigger, better and more interesting than they've ever done before.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Just gonna point out, there has only been 1 monkey starter, the elemental monkeys aren't starter pokemon.

Maybe not starters then, but there's still been far too many monkey Pokemon in general. Plus re-doing an animal type that they've done as a starter before doesn't really look good. Surely there were plenty of other possibilities?

IIRC you said you'd go for Sobble, right? Well we actually agree on best starter for once then.  I don't think it looks particularly good (it might if its head wasn't disproportionately large compared to its body), it's just that the fire one looks so bad and I hate monkey pokemon so it wins by default

I think the anime will look mature again judging by the 2 main character designs (unlike Sun and Moon)
