Has this been in development for... 1 year or something like that?

Also, LOL at them being in the distant past but using Pokeballs.



felling sceptical about this announcement. This seems too prematured based on what we saw in the last trailer.
A new trailer will surely come in few weeks. I just hope we don't end up having an empty game with powerpoint animations.



Even though its looking a bit half baked at the moment, this is easily the excited I've been for a Pokemon game post reveal. The potential is all there, even if falls technically short. Iron out that exploration/discovery gameplay loop and thats me sold



I hope I'm wrong, but this really needs more time in the oven, if what we saw last is anything to go by. GameFreak has struggled a lot in the technical department (corner cutting aside), and this seems more experimental than the usual Pokemon title.



You know it deserves the GOTY.

Judging by this photo it looks far more polished now.



Nintendo with the Switch:

Need to see more, the concept got me when announced, pokemon has really lost my interest, hopefully this difference take on it can make it good into my eyes again.
Hopeful.

Any still picture can look good enough. I want to see the game in motion, Game Freak's Pokemon games have had troubles with their performance since they went 3D.

1) Wasn't it reported that the first trailer, when it came out at the reveal, was made quite a while before the reveal, indicating even at that point the game was further along than the trailer showed?

2) Nintendo-made games, historically, have produced a literal butt-ton of polish in short time.

3) This could be th kind of game, like ACNHor, Splatoon, Sea of Thieves, or No Man's Sky, that is more empty at first and adds lots of content over time to fill it out.

They announced it in February, but that doesn't mean it only started development last year. I don't think they've given us a timeframe for when they started development. Game Freak always works on multiple projects at a time. 

As for your Pokeball comment, you can see in the trailer how they aren't traditional Pokeballs. They're made of wood and have metal clasps instead of the traditional button like Pokeball we see from modern games.
