for decades now GameFreak has been making Pokemon games working to the very limit of handheld capabilities. Now that they have a generational leap to catch up with, they have the potential to make the best pokemon game weve ever seen
I really fear that expectation is so prevalent that the next Pokemon may disappoint people.
I suppose it depends on how long they end up working on it, but it seems they've only been working on the Switch Pokemon game for under a year. People, meanwhile, seem to expect some incredible open-world, console quality Pokemon game, something they've never done before.
I suspect it will wind up being a lot more like the recent Sun and Moon with better visuals, but I doubt it will be completely transformative. That still means it could be a superb game, but I worry expectations could be held against it.
Frankly, I hope they finally get around to a new Pokemon Snap lol... this system seems absolutely perfect for it.
