Nah fuck that shit, it sucked.
>>39360730Honestly the posing for the Z moves was pretty cringy, but I really liked most of the new Pokemon and the theme it went for for what it wasIt was fine, I'll look back on it in hindsight as the 'Pokemon vacation'
i dont think i could even name 5 gen 7 pokemon

Too expensive alsoThe movies (Along with initial thoughts on 3D Mewtwo Strikes Back)On one hand, I dislike that all the movies where reboot and remakes, but on the other hand, I like that the legendaries of gen7 were used in the anime story which was on eof the best idea the anime made>The anime and its shift in direction/lookIt's the best season, looking wise, animation wise, story wise, overall it's not just a good Pokémon Anime, but a good anime in general.

>>39360947>What would you have changed/improved from itMore Specific Z-moves, Kahunas more challenging, Totem battles more gimmicky, Ultra Beasts more important to the story and make that Silvally change types with Z-Crystals and not a useless item>Hype season leading up to itOne of the best, I liked talking about the new info with my friends and each trailers were super hype>How does it make you feel that this will likely be the last gen to feature all existing PokemonI'm personally not bothered by the removal of some pokemon, if we're talking about sun and moon, I think that it's cool that it would be the last gen with all pokemon included and it would make people play it as a side game competitively maybe.

If you're asking what starter I liked the best, its Rowlet>>UBs as a conceptLiked them a lot as well as the legendaries because space/alien Pokemon such as Deoxys and Jirachi always interested me. Also a fan of science Pokemon like Porygon and Genesect. Its a shame UB just ended up being another scrapped gimmick, but thats how business is I guess.>>Overall thoughts on the games, not including Let's GOWas honestly better than I was expecting since XY was a major let down for me, and I'd say its pretty high up there for me overall in comparison to all the generations.>>Hype season leading up to itI wasn't as involved with Pokemon communities back then, so I can't really comment on that.>>How does it make you feel that this will likely be the last gen to feature all existing PokemonHonestly doesn't bother me. I do like catching all the mons in a region, but it really doesn't matter to me if a region has all the previous mons as well. I do understand why people would hate that decision though, but I'm quite excited for Sword and Shield. The graphics, most of the new Pokemon, and the region all look nice to me, and I'll enjoy the plotline since they started putting more effort into it since Gen 5.
>>39361279I also wanted to say I only have a few small gripes with SwSh right now, but nothing that deters me from getting the game. Exceeded text limit though.

I Super Training, PSS, Amie and the regular menu were all easily accessible and I found myself using all of them within minutes at some point for o-powers (which were a godsend when it came to do online endgame stuff), ev training and pokemon interaction.Then comes SM with a minimap on one of the most linear regions to date with a Rotom that won't even let you see the minimap until it stops telling you for the 30th time about how your pokemon get stronger with experience or shit that you already knew. The gen 6 online features and Amie were still present but they weren't as easy to access as before. The former was also tied to Festival Plaza and fuck Festival Plaza.

Not going to fill out the entirety of this, but I enjoyed all it had to offer, even festival plaza, shiny hunting and the very little postgame we had. I can't talk shit about a game if I actually had fun, and I actually thought that US/UM were difficult at times (I was using Pokémon like Dunsparce though). The stories are fine, I don't mind a story in Pokémon games and I did like a lot of the characters this time around, especially Nanu. LGPE were cool concepts that were held back by severe casualization. A simple thing such as having an expanded Kanto dex and a Battle Tower would've made me buy it. As for Alola. I wish that we had just had US/UM inprovements in S/M. I also wish that some things weren't arbitrarily assbackwards, like the Battle Agency and even S.O.S. battles being the entirety of wild battles. Fishing was also awful in these games, despite us being on tropical islands. Dungeon design was better than X and Y, but definitely not as good as 3-5. Battle Tree is dicks and I've always hated streak systems, even BF. Overall, a solid gen, but nothing that is insane.
>>39365615Well, I did mention how the pss was far better than the festival plaza. And while super training was convenient, there were faster ways to ev train through sos chains. Even in Gen 6, the best way to ev train was through horde battles. And as you said, Alola’s pretty linear so no big deal on the map. Heck, you use to have to go to the menu and inventories to check on that anyway. Not sure about the lagging part. Didn’t feel all that different for me.

>>39360730>5 favorite new pokemonIn general, i really liked the dex.

Waifu evolutions ruin everything.>Thoughts on Z-movesIt was alright. The dance part was unnecessary and frankly cringe, but the concept itself wasn't that bad.

It was nothing awesome, and due to the shitton of useless dialogs, i'm mostly annoyed by it, and Lillie.>Favorite new characterDefinitely Guzma.

Same shit.>The Starter WarsRowlet Master Race, and it's not even a question thanks to the other two starters evolving into shittier furbaits.tbc next post
>>39365899>UBs as a conceptDefinitely a nice thing for me. I really like the quirky and unusual designs of, say, Buzzwole and Stakataka. >Overall thoughts on the games, not including Let's GOMediocres at best. There were a lot of regressions like the Festival Plaza being a straight downgrade from PSS, the region was simply bad and uninteresting, fishing was limited to some areas, and overall the constant railroading was fucking cancerous.>What would you have changed/improved from itSkippable cutscenes, PSS, and less railroading + more exploration would definitely be a good start.>Hype season leading up to itI did get hyped, but the fact that they gave us that much info made the games feel even more poor and empty.

>>39366136This. Gen 8 is already looking to disappoint in the Waifu department compared to 7 it seems.
So far SS looks better than gen VII, minus the dex sweep.

>>39360730Everything about it sucked fucking dicks from the Pokémon designs to the fucking UI. Everything was garbage. FPBP.>LGPE>ORAS>XYThese games are garbage but they blow fucking SM/USM out of the fucking water. Alola wasn’t even a region. Just a walking sim in between mashing A through text boxes. People are bitching about all the SS problems? Yeah sure, it looks like absolute fucking trash, but I cannot comprehend how it could be worse than SM. Still not getting it though. Moon was the last Pokémon game I bought. A shame really, it was such a big part of my life since I was in single digits in age up until my late 20s and now it’s suddenly gone. I’ve ripped gen I-V so many times since SM came out I think I have to take a few years break then rip the old games again and take another few years off, etc. but my Pokémon journey is over. Thanks KikeFreak, blow me. Hope those guys are dead.
>>39366318what looks better exactly? besides the visuals. everything weve seen so far implies galar is going to be alola 2.0 with wider corridors and just as much of a reliance on an over bearing story and gimmicks
>>39366318Yeah, but as much as I hate SM, to scale, SS being on a console and not on a handheld I mean, it looks almost worse than SM. In a vacuum, it looks slightly better, but for how much better it SHOULD look it looks equally bad maybe worse.
>>39366318I didn’t think anything could be as bad as gen 7 UNTIL the death sweep

Maybe they'll have them in Pokemon Masters and make a joke about Rainbow Rocket>The Region of AlolaIt was shit because of the bonus side routes were either few or too small>UBs as a conceptMost of them made some cool looking pokemon, and the beast ball is baller. Their idea doesn't bother me, if anything it's kinda fun because even the alien pokemon aren't really aliens to the pokemon world, but these buggers are.

The really specific ones are neat.The plot was kinda unremarkable. I played Moon, and I'm almost done with Ultra Sun. The only thing I want is they don't give Lusamine a redemption arc. Sometimes villains should just be villains. Guzma is my boy, but Nanu's a close second. I think Gladion's a lame tryhard edgelord.For the rest, all I've got to say is I think Alola's honestly a pretty good region, I like the art change in the anime, all starters are valid except Litten, and for that last question... sad. but atleast we still have a bunch of great games to play.
Cancer that buried Pokémon. Rest in fucking feces. Thank Christ it’s over, but SWOOSH looks just as bad.
