Am I the only one here who has seen the leaks ?

Cause otherwise, I don't wanna spoil you but you'll be really surprised

Couldn't believe a damn thing about those leaks. They seemed too much ambitious for a crappy studio such as GAMEFREAK and too much expensive for pokémon Co. to invest for. They'd rather give that money for Katy perry and post malone.

So, what do you think now? Leaks were accurate and Gamefreak is making the DP remakes.

Around the Network

It was okay, but the Pokémon in both the remakes and Legends Arceus looked virtually the same. It's jarring. 

My bet with The_Liquid_Laser: I think the Switch won't surpass the PS2 as the best selling system of all time. If it does, I'll play a game of a list that The_Liquid_Laser will provide, I will have to play it for 50 hours or complete it, whatever comes first. 

Seems like they want to make Pokemon Legends a series of some kind with Arceus being the first title of the sub-franchise.

The remakes looked cute

The gen 4 remakes seem interesting. The chibi artstyle is ugly as fuck, but at least things look good in battle I guess. Bit disappointed they said they'd be a "faithful remake of Diamond/Pearl" would've preferred it if they were more like Platinum TBH. Hope they have a hard mode or something else well cuz otherwise they might get pretty boring quick.

The Pokemon Legends game is interesting. The animations look a bit janky still, but it's still an interesting idea. Why Sinnoh though and why in the distant past? Just seems like the time is right for 9th gen, yet they're doing that instead? I assume it's kind of a test for 9th gen, release that and see how it does, then have the 9th gen games based on it but with a lot more polish/improvements.

Around the Network

Sinnoh remakes looks awful, low budget and inferior to any 3DS Pokemon game

Clearly a rushed release to milk the fans, and worse: fans gonna buy it

Arceus games though looks promising, Nintendo will need to help GameFreak here if they want to meet the deadline, GF in general are severely limited when it comes to developing games, arguably the worst studio among Nintendo partners

Pokemon remakes look kind of eh. The mixture of Let's Go's art style but with the darker color scheme of SwSh resulted in a lot of bland looking lighting I feel like.

Legends looks really cool *conceptually*, but we could see a ton of performance issues and empty worlds. So it depends on how gamefreak polishes the game before launch. I always thought Pokemon BOTW would be cool, but of course it depends on how competent the developers are to make the coolness a reality. So we'll see.

Really excited for Legends: Arceus!

SO Legends is exactly what I've been demanding of the main series since the transition to Switch. Better late then never & it seems like Gamefreak is using it as a learning curve. I'm suspecting:

1. Much smaller pokedex.
2. Less content in general

And thats absolutely fine for me. Quality over quantity. I always shit on them but its clear that they're determined to catch up with peoples expectations here. Framerate aside it looks a very strong improvement over S/S. Hopefully this will be the future direction of the franchise once they get more accustomed to open world development.

Breath of the Arceus looks interesting, but if GF struggled with SWSh's performance already, this is going to be nightmarish for them.

You know it deserves the GOTY.
