Joe Merrick doing damage control
Is he though?
>>38929267You're a retard, even he isn't siding with this.
>>38929274>>38929274>>38929285Within the span of <24 Hours they've already invaito'd him again, he's currently trying to justify the cuts with "if they delayed the games to include the missing Pokemon the entire franchise would be fucked because they rely on the games for material to base their settings and merchandise on".
>>38929305Saying the can't delay the game for those reasons isn't defending them though. You may not like that reason, but he isn't wrong.
>>38929305I mean it sounds more like figuring out why they did this anyway than delay the game, without approving of the measure.
>>38929305That's not siding with them, is explaining why a simple delay would be catastrophicWhich is great, Gamefreak fucked up hard and now the entire TPCi is suffering for it. If there is any point to deservedly fire Gamefreak for their constant incompetence, is now
Not even Serebii likes this change. Instead he's claiming Masuda doesn't want this himself or something.
>>38929305He's not wrong though, that doesn't mean he's being a shill. You're just an idiot.
>>38929378Christ! Those tree textures.
>>38929378That tree is straight up Ocarina of Time-tier, what the fuck
>>38929305It's called a filler arc, Pokemon has done it before it can do it again.
>>38929305That's correct though.
>>38929465That will cost money and most importantly, time which they do not have as the year is halfway over.
>>38929602This debacle might cost them even more money thoughCan you imagine if Pokemon bombs? That extreme is unlike since you can still have it bought for kids by parents, but this mess does have the chance of making them underperform.
>>38929498Yes, and then the orange islands and Battle Frontier happened.Funny how he conveniently forgets that when TPC unzips dick.
>>38929602It's costs them nothing. Anything they've got done can just be put aside for later. Literally nothing is lost because you've still got 10 things, you just used what was originally intended to be the first two, last.
>>38930505Do you know how long it will take to just push everything aside right now and start fresh on a new season of Pokemon? Animation takes up way too much time for that and that's not including shit like the TGC already in its own planning stages for the next gen. We're not talking about a whole year before the games, they have until November which is not enough time unless they force some sort of crunch.
>>38930421Those were done in advance, not 6 months before release with episodes already being worked on
>>38929758>This debacle might cost them even more money thoughtimeslots, animation, erchandise they lsot will be more than selling only 10M out of 12M
>>38930421It's too late for anything like that now.
>>38930705>>38930638>>38930630This. They're stuck between a rock and a hard place now and the only thing they can do is release the game.
>>38930863Not even. They just need to promise us they'll patch the game and rethink their decision. There's no reason for the first mainline Switch title to cut Pokemon when the 3DS titles had all that were available at the time.
>MUH PATCHES>MUH UPDATES>MUH OTHER MEANS>DONT ATTACK THEM, DO THIS PEACEFULLY>THE ANIME AND TCG WILL SUFFER IF THEY DELAYShut the fuck up Joe
