What if future: Pokemon Sword and Shield are profitable, but 'Age of Ultrons'

Forums - Nintendo Discussion - What if future: Pokemon Sword and Shield are profitable, but 'Age of Ultrons'

Most of these controversies are stupid and won’t affect the games at all. I suspect these games will be the best selling PKMN games since gen 2. I’m so excited, November is almost here

Boo! I thought this was about the Pokemon world being threatened by scary robot James Spader.



Some days I just blow up.

I've had similar thoughts before, and I think it's our only hope. There's no way in Arceus's name that these games won't sell well, given the fact that Let's Go has already sold over 10M, but we can always hope for underperformance. And I do share the concern that this would just cause them to neglect consoles even more and focus on mobile, but I'm not too worried about that. There's little to no shared resources between the mobile development and the console development, and the main series games are, even in a worst-case scenario, going to be very, very profitable.

For the first time ever, I'm going to be rooting against a game's success. Big sales will just keep encouraging Game Freak to continue on with the downwards spiral. I won't judge anyone who chooses to buy it, I just hope few people do.

It's time the people complaining accept the games aren't aimed at them anymore the game is going to sell like mad after all despite people's complaints about PLG that still sold 10m in a month. The series is still aimed at the same people it always has been only now you're no longer part of group which why your complaints on graphics and what not will never really rock GF because for all the 85k people down voting the videos the will be 15m still buying the games because they're not looking for what you're asking from GF you've become a niche group in the fanbase essentially.

The way people look back at gen 1 and 2 is how a number of people are going to be looking back at SW/SH in future because for them this will be their moment much like it was for the players who played R/B or G/S.



I don't play Pokémon games, but I've been having an obsession as of late with watching videos comparing SwSh to old Pokémon spin-off games, mobile knockoffs and college projects that somehow blow Game Freak's build quality out of the water. Just watching that is very amusing and sad.

And then sometimes they compare them to DQXI, which is understandable. A lot of stuff needs to change inside the company, fans need to demand, more than ever, things more in line with the times.

I feel like Poke'mon is going to become just another kid's game. Like Yo-Kai Watch 1-2. Something that is good, but not a must own franchise. One of the main reasons why Poke'mon has lasted so long despite GameFreak is because the original idea was groundbreaking in 1996. Let's make a game where you can catch and train all 150 monsters in the game. When's the last RPG you played where you had 150 or more potential party members?

Aside from Ni No Kuni, or Yo-Kai-Watch I can't think of any. And those two games are pretty much Poke'mon inspired.

Yeah. I like good games, therefore I am no longer Game Freak's audience.

I want to answer this question better than it will be, and I did see something on it on a spacebattles forum that does it better, but I am having trouble finding the exact page (they've been moving ahead), but in general Pokemon average player ages have been on the upswing since at least Gen 4. The median age being older going from then onward. 

Gen wun pandering is hardly for the tots.



The Democratic Nintendo fan....is that a paradox? I'm fond of one of the more conservative companies in the industry, but I vote Liberally and view myself that way 90% of the time?
