Forums - Nintendo Discussion - I Hope Pokemon Switch Fixes the Washed Out Colors of the 3DS Pokemon

Yeah, this was a big problem regarding gen 1 Pokémon. The other generations weren't as bad but most of the earlier ones were still a bit off, whereas most of the newer Pokémon seemed to be fine. Or maybe I just think that way because I never saw them in sprites?

I guess Pokémon Switch will have 3D-models and will look similar to Pokken.

 Edit:

Or they will look like Detective Pikachu.

That's the dream, but I certainly wouldn't count on it. Recent leaks suggest it's only a small upgrade over Sun and Moon. 



This is one of my most wanted changes too, but I can see Game freak just using the high-res 3ds model they have now

I HATE when people say this.

The models are NOT washed out - the old sprites were just WAY over saturated.

The new color pallet is made to better match the official artwork.

It doesn't really matter if the pokemon were originally intended to be less colorful.


They ARE washed out compared to the DS sprites and i do hope gamefreak makes them more colorful in the next game.

No, they are color-accurate compared to the DS sprites. And I'm very sure they'll stay that way, as there's literally no reason to go back after making the assertive effort to color correct.

And the anime's colors doesn't matter. I'm talking about the official released artwork. The "Sugimori (and co.)" art. Pokemon was designed to be a franchise of pastels, not primaries. I'm glad they don't go back as the over saturation would look absolutely garish in 3D when in context of equally saturated environments and not isolated in white backgrounds, and I hope they never will again. I also hope they don't get rid of the outlines, because that's another weird "fix" people keep asking for, like it's literally supposed to look like the incredible artwork come to life. In every way.

Then again, in an era where the fan requested "all villains" team concept actually manifested as Rainbow Rocket, which is literally the worst fan fiction, who knows what they're willing to do now. Maybe along with a new hyper saturated colorscheme, Gen 8 will bring the much requested Kanjohennohnovaloslola region with 48 gyms, 8 trials, 5 Pokemon leagues, and a raised level cap of 500 to fit it all.

Ok that was a tangent, but tl;dr - I prefer pastels and lines.



Well, this is new.

agree to disagree



You'll be able to fix that with your TV if you so wish, so there's no point in worrying.

No because upping the saturation on the TV would affect everything not just the Pokémon, I assume he doesn't want insanely saturated GUI and landscapes.

Thankfully for your point, no Blastoise in this picture. That thing is hideous.



I’m sure they’ll be making new models, not fixing old 3DS models.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.
