Whats the worst gane freak has done?
>>45495405They should have made it so you have to show a pokemon that's weak to the gym's type
I don't care to engage in these hate threads
>>45495405Unironically Sword and Shield.
>>45495447what's the thing in the centre supposed to be, a tiny model skyscraper?
>>45495544Nostalgia being crushed underfoot, circa 2014 (colorized)
>>45495405This is even worse than the free lati in ORAS. at least you aren't forced to visit any gyms with lati, unlike here in LGPE
>>45495544I always wondered this as well.
>>45495422>waaah waaah stop making fun of the multimillion dollar game company
It's Battle Tower you fucking retards.
>>45495405checking in at the hotel in sword and shield is the worst hand-holding i ever saw in a pokemon game.
>>45495544>>45495643The battle tower from RSE
>>45495422it's just banter, ma'am.
>>45495422Then don’t post here, faggot
>>45495422>I don't care to engage in these hate threads>engages in hate thread
>>45495405>the only way to level up outside of fighting trainers is catching the same pokemon over and over and over and over and over and over againYou already posted it.Game Freak took what was essentially a patch to condensation-tier shallow gameplay by Niantic into an actual feature.
>>45495708why do TPC and GF hate blastoise so muchwhat did it do wrong
>>45495705don't forget that they removed the sevii islands postgame and gave you a broken starter that can singehandedly stomp the entire game.
>>45495405Their implementation of difficulty settings in BW2 is the single most inept and scummy thing they've ever done
>>45495760here's your "new" leaf storm bro
>>45495422>hateWhat hate. It's valid criticism.
>>45495729Let Go of Your Pee is the one time I was completely baffled at people for buying it, even if it was part of a franchise with no standards like Pokemon.Literally paying more for less.
Diamond and Pearl's general sluggishness and overuse of HMsvis where the Game Freak hate for me. It didn't help when they didn't bother to fix the level curve in HGSS, and BW1 was maximum linearity.
>>45495795No need to hide it anon, you are not a real Pokemon fan unless you have shat on Gamefreak at least once
>>45495405I didnt play LGPE. Do they make you have a SE mon against every gym leader?
>>45495822>and BW1 was maximum linearitymax casual too since they put a doctor on almost every route so you never come close to struggling
>>45495855no. some leaders have entrance requirements but they're all different I don't remember any else except for Sabrina needing 50 mons
>>45495855No, but there are requirement for every gym in the game.Koga's in particular seems immensely fucking annoying since you have to catch 45 mons before you can enter.
>>45495855no but every requirement is equally as bad, Koga and Sabrina literally require you to be overleveled otherwise they are not letting you in lol
>>45495955>>45495960>not catching them all
>>45495979you unironically can't catch them all unless you have both versions of the game or import the missing mons from your google tracker GO account
>>45495544>>45495643In all likelihood they were modeling the tower to be included, and either ran out of time or just got lazy and said "nah, we'll use XY's maison instead" and intended the tower model to be an easter egg.Seems like Ohmori is kind of a retard.
>>45495729Every starter can singlehandedly beat an entire game. Some just make it easier.
>>45496046But by the time you reach those gyms you should've caught at least 50 if you were working on the pokedex as you played.
>>45496145This one never fails to upset me.
>>45496188>Implying that half the people shitting on Let's Go ever actually played itNow, to be fair, having gym requirements is pretty fucking stupid in and of itself, and player freedom should come above all else in a series as open ended as this one, but people bitch about things you should have already done, anyway (like, y'know, CATCHING creatures in a series mainly about catching creatures?)Also>What were the Running shoes?
>>45496145>they never changed that line in FRLG
>>45496145Did it say "it's full of women" or "it's full of hot women"?
Literally nothing posted in the thread is even half as bad as gen3 fishing mechanics. >need to watch it and press A whenever prompted>can't fast forward on emulator to make it less bearableEmerald is probably my favourite game, but fuck me the fishing mechanics are so bad.
>>45496145They could have said "strong women" instead.It would have been both political correct AND perverted enough.
>>45496921Damn you made me remember all the times i had to catch ludvisks so i could make my pokes remember moves
>>45496785It's full of girls in swimsuits
What, you want Metang?See you next month.
>>45495405Literally game freak still being a small company. Up to 5th gen was ok, respectable. The game really had a soul back then. Then at gen 6 we started to get dull models, and then at gen 8, when they finally got an actual gaming hardware powerful hardware they just give us pokemon sword and shield. Damn they aren't newbies and pokemon is too big tl just depend on them. Maybe works for minecraft, since still being managed as an indie game, not as a macro-multi-media-billionary-stocks-portfolio-AAA-franchise. Seriously they need to see that
>>45497056not nearly as bad as honey trees
>>45497056atleast you can use that shit to get larvitar before getting 16 badges
>>45495740Absolutely. The only reason it's given a pass is that it's a concept that was long overdue and that no game has brought back. If a more recent game had it but less bullshitty we'd be harping on BW2 for the implementation.
>>45497056This was horrendous. Wasn't Gible like 3 months?
>>45497056>more than a year till next gamesSo what's the problem?
>>45495705And most of the trainers are not rebattleable and those that are can only be fought once a day.
>>45495405>Whats the worst gane freak has done?Trying to sanitize the Pokemon World and retcon all it's real world influences and inspirations.
>>45495405Letting Blitzle be on the list of Pokes that didn't make it into SWSH or either of the DLCs.
>>45497187All pseudos (and trapinch)(except larvitar and dratini) took 70 days
Everything bad about Pokemon now can be traced back to XY.
>>45495405Turn to full 3D with soulless models
>>45495720He's not le epic lizard
>>45497288just why (and that shitty edit isn't even good, but leagues ahead of official version)
>>45496145>gamer would like to battle!
>>45495662Didn't play swooshie, what's the hotel about?
>>45497256That's ridiculous, they don't know how to design games. In a couple of weeks, people will lay off the game and pick up another fashionable thing
>>45495410>Trace is literally just a Blue replacement but worse in every single way for no reasonWhatthe hell were they thinkig with Let's Go?
>>45497337Blue would be scary for little cildren :(
>>45497187Here's the list of all the high-day mons (>40 days), keep in mind that yo can't even change the clock on the ds to speed it up>Riolu (70 days)>Vigoroth (60 Days)>Gible (100 Days)>Shelgon (70 Days)>Beldum (70 Days, although you can get Metang at only 30)>Bronzong (110 Days)>Bagon (110 Days)>Sealeo (80 days, although you can get spheal at only 40 days)
>>45496171Every single pokemon has the potential to solo the game. Making a Pikachu / Eevee that has an assload of coverage options is overkill though.
>>45496436>in a series as open ended as this oneAll pokemon games are fairly linear. They're JRPGs.
>>45497342Why would you make such a retarded shitpost when you fight Blue multiple times in it?
>>45496946F O R K I D SORKIDS
>>45497566The originals were also for kids...
>>45495868>doctor on almost every routeWhy does /vp/ keep exaggerating things to them look worse than they really are?
Retards will defend this
>>45497674Wasted potential but cool nonetheless
>>45495405Isn't LGPE supposed to be friendly to megacasuals?>>45495447Objectively this, I'm still upset about it.
>>45497607I don't know why they're even supposed to be a problem, like you couldn't just Fly or Dig back to the last Pokémon Center in every game before it, or just fucking walk. It only saves you the inconvenience of backtracking and you still have to actually battle them to get healed.
>>45497367>Bronzong >When you get Bronzor via Sinnoh Sound Wtf
>>45497337>Whatthe hell were they thinkig with Let's Go?That pseudo-sequel to Kanto would be cool but that they couldn't add Kanto Pokemon like Murkrow or Houndour in it or Genwunners would screech like they did with the Sevii Islands in FRLG even though FRLG was already butchered by being too "faithful".
>>45497647You could easily mesh all three of them into one character
>>45495410>SWSH still does this shit>It makes every single cutscene take even longer every time they swivel on that axisAAAAAAAAAAAArRGH
>>45497319Got to get sleep before the yuge battle vs the gym leader
>>45495809its not a difficult game.. but its still fun ngl
>>45497819People disliked the Sevii Islands? Why?
>>45495405XY and ORAS, swsh was bad but XY and ORAS were worsegen7 was good imo
>>45495405This can’t be real
Behold, the exact moment that began the KANTOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
>>45495780>>45495760What’s the issue
>>45499213because it’s different
>>45499375You loved it, don’t lie
>here's a free legendary + mega stone mid-game bro :)>"b-but just don't use it!"And let them strip me of the freedom to choice when and how I want to catch Latios/Latias? Why even give me the legendary in the first place? Soar isn't useful until postgame and HM Fly does the same job, anyway. Not to mention how pathetic GF made these two look when they needed saving from a Team admin and grunt with weak pokemon.
>>45499375and even before- you get a farfetch'd offer right before the first gym- the forrest has the same layout as the viridian oneand not to ignore- mega evolution was promoted throught kanto. m-mewtwo in the genesect movie and especially in the final of fucking origins
>>45499375It started when people whined about not being able to use their bro mon in B&W
>>45499213the postgame story line was ultimately pointless and served as nothing more than a barrier to trading with RSE.
>>45499454Imagine being mad that you had to work to get things.
>>45499454this, they would be alright as extra bits of content but locking shit behind them makes them an absolute chore
>>45499490imagine waiting until the end of the postgame to get gen 2 evos for your kantomons or gen 3 mons from the other games when all you have left to do is re-beat the elite meat.
>>45499490>Imagine being mad that you had to work to get things.People would be absolutely tearing new Pokemon games apart if they pulled that shit today.Just look at how whiny manbabies complain that hidden sound options were hidden behind talking to an NPC.
>>45497056>Beldum line still has an abyssmal catch rate because they never intended it to be catchable and GF is too retarded or too stubborn to change anythingi hate it here
>>45495410>$60 for shit animations, low quality graphics and garbage control schemes
>>45499552>hiding basic options behind obsruce bullshitwhat's next? they hide the start button behind the legendary encounter? we gotta draw the line somewhere or cucks like you will coom over every basic function of the games being locked away.
>>45496145This is TPCi's doing, it should be the same in Japanese
>>45499579>transferring is a basic option that should be available at the start of the game
>>45495405Leaving Kalos hung out to fucking die, when Pokémon Z could have been phenomenal. I will never forgive that.
>>45499598i think you replied to the wrong post. we were talking about the audio options being locked behind a random NPC.
>>45499579>talking to an NPC in the open middle of the city is "obscure bullshit"Just kill yourself.
>>45499610The topic changed and if you follow the replies you'll see it was about having to do a minor story to transfer pokemon suddenly being compared to the sound guy.
>>45497401Yes, but very few RPGs give you the sheer amount of possible party members Pokemon doesThey may seem like small choices at first, but they do have ramifications from battle to battle and have the potential to make each player's experience unique
>>45495405Still limiting battle scale in HD as if developing on the 3DS still. Despite Dynamax being a thing.
>>45499755Wow, that is not even close to its actual scale still
>>45497367This is atrocious. The MAX time it should take to get any mon is one week, but most should be between 1-3. 70-100 days? No person is going to be playing one game for three months straight, keeping tabs on the safari countdown all the while. If you are team building and want something that takes 70 days, you are not going to care about making that team or even thinking about it by the time it rolls around.
>>45499762Gotta compromise with Gamefreak's weird camera sadly
>>45499755Even on the 3DS it was inexcusible
>>45495405Gen 1 and 2's battle system code
Gen 6's framerate
>>45499826not really gamefreaks fault...the pokemon company made moltres so complicated...and nintendo made the 3ds so shittythey were put in an impossible situation
>>45495405Forcing Satoshi Tajiri to retire and take over the company he built.
>>45499818>tfw Blaine just wanted to make sure you could evolve your bro
>>45497056This was bullshit but it was also completely optional and even if you didn't want to wait for the best stuff it was still a good addition
>>45499822what about gen 7's framerate? from what i remember it was even worse
>>45500213And you remember wrong.
>>45500213when there's a shit gen/game framrate problems, then it's swsh
>>45495422Thanks for the bump, faggot! Here's your (((you))). Now fuck off back to r/pokemon where you discuss all the amie interactions with your starter (because battles are blood sports).
>>45500307It’s alright for normal play but it completely shits the bed when online.
>>45499755Groudon's 11'6". We are getting closer with scale, that one looks like it might be 9-10ft
>>45497086150 people is not a small company at all. And they hire more people temporally for small tasks
>>45495405>Whats the worst game freak has done?Decided that their principle is 'let's print Pokemon again' instead of 'let's try to expand upon the system we set up'That's about it.Why you guys keep falling for this crap, well, you're gonna have to mull it over yourself.
>>45495723Well, at least is something. In Swsh it would have been: -Captain in front of the plant-black screen *Zac*-plant gone
>>45495447It's this. LGPE are marketed as beginner games and are fine for what they are. Refusing to create content because of "version purity" when it's never mattered before is way more of a middle finger to the fanbase.
>>45499993Some pokemon are not optional depending on your team and having to wait more than a fucking month for it is not justifiableWhat am I even supposed to do during that time, aside from dropping the game altogether and do something else?
>>45497056>adjust your DS clock for any reason>literally all your unlock progress is reset
>>45497243dont forget dynamax and z-moves.fuck all of these shitty gimmicks.
>>45495447I unironically love this because it causes the autist on this board to seethe uncontrollably
>>45497647Yes but I will still cum to Shauna.
>>45495447I actually don't care about Battle Frontier but this is GF literally telling their fans to fuck off.
>>45501891gross quilladin faced bitch
>>45499425Excellent HM slaves. They can learn Cut, Fly, Surf, Waterfall, and Dive. I think this is the correct way to use Latia/os in ORAS.
>>45502073Why would you use Fly when you can soar?
>>45502091You get Latios/Latias before you can soar. Soaring is post-Groudon/Kyogre. Also flying is faster.
>>45499610The fucking map card in GSC was locked behind talking to an old man in the first town, and it was locked behind talking to Blue's sister in RBYMaybe integrating system mechanics into the diagesis isn't a bad thing just because you missed it by not talking to everyone.Are you going to also complain that you need to talk to NPCs to get TMs and other items?
>>45501621Pseudo-legendaries are optional. Especially those from other editions. Many of the pokemon listed in the huge wait up there can either be caught as the involved form elsewhere, or just straight up caught elsewhere.
>>45495447The closest I can relate to this was when I found the closed Safari Zone in GSWHYYYYYYYYYYYYyy ;_;I mean I know why but it was so sad
>>45502217It's still there if you try hard enough.The warden just took all the pokemon with him when he went on vacation
>>45502181Are youserious ? The map is an item used in the game. The sound menu is different, its not even something where you can listen to songs, its just the parameters. Thats absurd
>>45502204>Many of the pokemon listed in the huge wait up there can either be caught as the involved form elsewhere, or just straight up caught elsewhereSo what is the point of the big fucking wait?In what way does it make the game more interesting or engaging?
>>45499545>imagine waiting until the end of the postgame to get gen 2 evos for your kantomonsThis has been debunked. All you need to evolve kantomons is beat the elite 4 and catch 60 pokemon
That time they made beating Sprout Tower a requirement to challenge the Violet City Gym is up there
>>45500302No, he doesn't. Sun and Moon were way worse. O3DS practically shit itself trying to do Battle Royals.
>>45499377Is it not obvious enough?
>>45499454>story lineLike I give a shit. New areas to explore are always a good addition.
>>45502720There is no point, I don't think anyone's defending the wait itself. But at least the safari zone exists, it's by no means GF's biggest mistake.
>>45495405>Red Blue/Green>Story is basic>Characters are flat and are only remembered for being in the anime>Full of glitches>So easy you can beat the entire game with just Magikarp>Only has 151 pokemon programmed but only ~80% are obtainable>The PC didn't have an interface it was just a text menu>Most pokemon designs are uninspired or unoriginal>No national dex
>>45499454Also I hated that they swapped the island names at the last second. How is island One more memorable than Boon or Knot Island?
>>45499572You pay for the open world, not the animations.SWSH doesnt have either so I can't defend that.
>>45500302>Alolasomes are trying to act as if Gen 7 had better frame rate than Gen 6 now.They used the same exact almost everything but battles are 10% slower.
>>45501335>Refusing to create content because of "version purity"They did that with FRLG and people defended it.>>45501809This. Gimmicks were a mistake, they need to can them all and bring back megas.
>>45504080No safari zone at all is better than a safari zone that is so ludicrously designed I believe very few people patiently waited 60-130 days of their lives for their pokemon and then picked up the game again. Most would just drop the game and move on
>>45503405Fuck HGSS for shit like this.
>>45502217Thought they closed it canon wise cause of team rocket's influence?
>>45504924Must be the Trainer models that appear behind the Pokemon and dissapear every time they did some flashy move. I don't kmow why they did it, they're not even scaled correctly (they were in LGPE, but not in SWSH for some reason)
>>45499375This was great because I coud box the ugly trash starters of gen 6 and cotinue with peak design
