    Evolving in the middle of a battle like in the anime would be really hype. I'd love some stuff like that as a new "gimmick".

    Ah, I see. Yeah, that shouldn't change. Some mind would end up waaaay too powerful and break the game in a couple ways.

    What about the 6 pkmn formula then?:hmm

    And the bad news just keeps rolling in. I don't know how credible this is, I hope it's not:



    That's right, upscaled Sun/Moon graphics. That's all we're getting. And these games will probably cost $60 a piece. Way to go GameFreak/Nintendo. :neutral

    Exactly as I feared. The platform that runs Breath of the Wild bringing us a 3DS game, for Nintendo's fastest growing and second most profitable franchise.

    They didn't even try. And if it sells, it only continues to prove they don't need to try.

    Although I don't mind kanto tbh, but I think it will need some serious upgrade to not be boring. However, I guess I will save my bitching for now until we get some trailers. :meh

    I'll admit it's the least damning part so far out of all the leaks/rumors. Mainly because since it's a soft reboot they can take liberties with remaking the entire region. Also, Kanto-forms of later Pokemon would be interesting to see if they didn't scrap that whole concept already.

    But since it's using the USUM foundation, the games will still be your linear as fuck Pokemon adventure no matter what they do. And now with added Go mechanics too? Ho' shit. Let's just hope that somehow all of this is fake, or start hoping that whatever comes next will finally be the proper much needed facelift for the franchise.

    This game will make or break whether I get a Switch sooner rather than later. Smash can wait for me, never really been a super fan of the series

    Same.

    The only reasons I'd get a Switch at this point is for the Pokémon or maybe a new Animal Crossing game. If the Pokémon game sucks, I'll probably push off getting a Switch until something more interesting comes out.

    There's no excuse. There's literally no excuse for this. I'm one of the most stubborn Pokemon fans who defends most of their games and design choices, but this?

    I just don't get it.

    Why would you NOT overhaul the graphics to be better? Pokemon has ALWAYS lagged behind other games in terms of graphics, and most of the switch games look drop dead gorgeous. Even fucking ARMS looks rather pretty and nice.

    Let that sink in for a second. If they keep the 3DS graphics, ARMS will have better graphics than the Pokemon game.

    I would've been perfectly fine with Kanto if they had overhauled it to be larger and more explorable, but that doesn't seem to be the case here. And that sucks.

    I just don't understand their thought process. They've been overhauling all their other games visually with great success. Mario Odyssey is one of the most popular Mario games, Breath of the Wild got critical acclaim, hell, even Kirby looked really nice and appealing. So why is one of their biggest moneymakers getting shafted?

    The trailer for this game can't come soon enough. Because if these leaks are all we have so far... I'm pretty dissapointed in their decision making.

    Your big move for Pokemon to go from handheld to console and outdated graphics are all we're getting, and a reboot of Kanto which has already been done? Come on Gamefreak.

    Graphics is the least of our worries. Upscaled USUM means narrow linear pathways again. This shit is not acceptable for an RPG game in 2018.

    You know, it's kind of ironic. Pokemon was one of the first RPG games to be all about exploration and getting lost in the fantastic world of Pokemon, going wherever you could and exploring all sorts of areas for new and undiscovered Pokemon, yet now it's become the most restrictive of RPGs.

    You must be confusing your memories with something else, because the first Pokemon games constantly locked you out of certain areas if you did not have the proper HM moves, and you flat-out couldn't go to certain places until you completed certain events. That's been how it is with every other game since then as well.

    What I meant was that those games gave off that exploration vibe, of looking for areas to unlock, places to find rare pokemon (seafoam islands, power plant, safari zone, etc) and overall traversing the place. The franchise has always marketed about there being this marvelous, huge world of pokemon, yet the games feel like they have gotten more and more linear as time has gone on.
