- Increasing available Pokemon in one title is not their master plan.
- Pokemon Home is the Home.
- Masuda is not happy with the decision. "In the end, I had no choice but to choose the quality."
- They considered doing this for Sun/Moon.
- Counting forms, the current total in SWSH is more than 1000 Pokémon.
- Even if a Pokémon can't be imported to SWSH, you will be able to play with it in Pokémon Home in some way.
- They are considering using the models/animations they have created for SWSH in future entries but nothing is guaranteed as that will depend on new mechanics like Dynamax/Megas, that require additional work for every Pokémon.

wait is he saying SWSH have 1000 pokemon, or that they would have to animate 1000 pokemon to get them all in?
>>

That's too many forms.

If this is a one time per system thing I'd be okay with it but, I don't trust like that.

Give main series Pokémon to some competent studio pls

He's talking about THAT kind of quality.
>>
>>38943254
Who gives a fuck. This is the ben 10 problem, I would rather have a higher quality original source with no toy sales or having the dumb fucking toy companies wait a little while then have the original source material controlled by the people who make stupid fucking toys 9 year olds buy. Pokemon has made a game every year and it's about time they took a damn break like every other main nintendo game and really thought if they are turning out shit, or games people actually enjoy anymore.
>>
>>38943211
>Choose the quality
Ah, yes. Late PS1 graphics with shitty models and lacking a good portion of the actual species because you decided to create a Dynamax model for EVERY. SINGLE. POKEMON. You doubled the work unnecessarily instead of scaling shit up. Ah, yes. I wonder if the code will be decrypted and encrypted hundreds of times before it is run. I wonder if Sonia will have dozens of models for each route that she is on.
>>
The work has already been done for them. They have models, stats already done, all dynamax is is scaling the model. It's barely any work. Hire an extra guy to port them. Fuck.

Game Freak is the sort of dev to have separate files and animations stored for every single Dynamax Pokemon instead of simply adding a size and shader modifier.

With all the forms, including all the Unowns, Alola forms and Arceus plate forms, there are 894 Pokemon models total. so thats at least 106 or more pokemon in the Galar dex... that being if there are no 50 quadrillion forms of one pokemon in the galar dex.

>>
>>38943211
>>>Depend on new mechanics like Dynamax/Megas, that require additional work for every Pokemon
Bull. Shit. Every single one of the new mechanics you've revealed have been scope-efficient as fuck.
>Mega Evolution: There are a very limited amount of Mega Pokemon. The entire point of Mega Evolution is that it does NOT apply to every single fucking Pokemon.
>Z-moves: You require 1 animation for every Z-move, and that's it. The animations work just like other move animations work, in that any Pokemon can use a Z-move. The only exception is the exclusive Z-moves, which, being exclusive to only one kind of Pokemon each, are even more scope-efficient.
>Dynamax: The Dynamax moves work just like Z-moves and normal moves have worked in literally every game since gen 1, in that the animations literally aren't tied to the Pokemon at all, which means you only need to make them once. And the Dynamaxing itself? You literally only have to scale up the existing models and animations, which shouldn't be a problem at all- as in, the fucking game engine should do it automatically, on the fly, every time you Dynamax a Pokemon.

I get that Pokemon has battled the Scope Problem since its inception, and has had to come up with clever ways to solve the problem (like having Pokemon be static sprites with animated moves), but removing Pokemon is literally the last resort and should always be treated as such. Everything is future-proofed already. You have all the money in the world, and can literally hire a hundred and fifty designers and artists.

Fix. It.

Gamefreak couldn't fit Johto onto the GBC cartridge, so fucking Iwata came down, fixed their garbage code and threw in Kanto to fucking boot.

Gamefreak's code gave Iwata cancer.

THEY CODE LIKE A BUNCH OF FUCKING MONKEYS ON CRACK
THEY'RE STILL USING TECHNIQUES FROM THE GBA ERA
THEY ARE A MULTI BILLION DOLLAR COMPANY, THEY HAVE NO FUCKING EXCUSE
IF THEY AREN'T TRYING CAUSE THEY SIMPLY DON'T CARE ANYMORE, GIVE POKEMON TO NINTENDO, OR GIVE IT ANOTHER 3RD PARTY DEVELOPER THAT GIVES A SHIT.
I AM BEYOND ANGER AT THIS POINT, I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND THIS LEVEL OF INCOMPETENCE AND APATHY.

Well I’d around 210+ with gender difference and Hat Pikachus so that’d Push the 809 with 210 =1019 dont quote me on the numbers
>>
>>38943232
809 species from Bulbasaur to Melmetal
46 mega evolutions
18 alola forms
Equals 873 different designs so far.

So 127 new things.

I ain't counting stuff like different Unown, Burmy variants, etc. Cuz then the number would be WAY about 1000.
>>
>>38944271
Just how they be worse than they already are?
Just look at Wingull.

Sonic Team never, ever, ever listens to their fans.

Pulseman almost gave me a seizure back when I first played it on the Wiiware. You can tell that's the reason they never ported it over to the west.

But it was a pretty good looking game for the Genesis I agree.
>>
>>38944283
The last good pokemon game was BW2, which came out a year after generations.
>>
>>38943914
Did you count the Megas and Silvally?
>>
>>38944271
That's still on them for shitting out new games every fucking year.

Their games may suck but ST is friendlier than most devs. They're like that one guy who only befriends people who like to shit on him.

>>38944417
You guys don't have it as bad as you think you do. Sure every game after BW2 wasn't great but there was never anything as calamitous as Sonic Boom, a game that barely fucking functioned. And Forces a melodramatic retread of generations with the worst level design in the franchise. I don't care how much you hate pokemon or how much you think it's fallen, GF's issue is barely changing a core gameplay style that works.

Sonic Team can't even do that.
>>
>>38944244
wait what
this is not the final game
it's a unfinished beta
right?

Holy shit, just fade the steelix in or SOMETHING

I want to play this, but at the same time don't want to support GF. What should I do, friends?

Ash Greninja
Rotom Forme
Anything for me that changes stats, type or moves , Including Rockpuppers moon and sun changes and Pokeball magearna

no he isn't. he's standing still while a magic fist materializes out of thin air in front of him.
compare that to veemon, who is winding up, moving towards the camera and actually moving his fist.

the point is moot, anyway. that scene was a cinematic, not in game footage. crafted purposefully for the trailer, you *might* see it in-game after naming your character and starting, then it will pull out like the first episode of the anime to reveal it was on the tv that your mc is watching.

Aye, I'm breaking this cycle of abuse. I thought Sun and Moon would be absolute rock bottom and now this. I made backups of backups for all my dudes and put my games in cold storage. Until Gamefreak loses development rights and Masuda dies of ass cancer, I'm never looking back on this miserable fucking franchise.

Man. I knew I didn't really like it to begin with but jesus. I have a really real reason now.

If it's too cold for some pokemon then why are any of the Alolan mons in Galar?

Fuck all these shitty excuses.

>>
>>38943929
You faggot are part of the problem. Neck yourself.
>>
>>38943901
Aye.

Sun and Moon was a bit rough around the edges, but I felt ready to fully embrace regular consumption of pokemon games after missing out on gens 4-6.

And now... this.

Not just Gen 8, but all gens from this point forward.

Looks like I'm dropping the games again.
>>
>>38943658
I wonder how many hours of development time they waste per game due to not knowing that there was an easier way to achieve the same result?

>>38945240
Are you me? I emulated gen 4 and 5 and skipped 6. The hype for sun and moon got me and even if the game has no caves ans is a hallway, I liked playing pokemon again.
Now I don't feel the need to buy the switch. I guess I can play NMH3 in a lend switch or emulated.

Literally a franchise that shits gold, more valuable that any other IP in history, and they can't be bothered to fucking bothered to make a game that looks like it came out this century.

Counting every single form change, gender difference, Mega, etc. and there are 1151 Pokémon. I get that’s a lot but if the models are already made I don’t know why they need to be updated again for the Switch. It’s clear everyone that we’re crying about the models would gladly take them if it meant being able to transfer their mons.

It’s way more than that. It’s over 1000 already if you count everything including stuff like Unown, Vivillon, Arceus, and Silvally. Not counting those or cosmetic forms it’s probably more like 910.

Ga Olé I think, Japanese arcade game. I’ll look at the list of HD models they already have from there, they have updated animations too. They could port all the Ga Olé mons over if they wanted to.
