>>46784283>>[DS game] is the peak of the series!This is true hough. Back to r/pokemoncirclejerk brainlet redditor
>>46784259"SwSh was a bad game"It does have its flaws (such as that excuse of a Macro Cosmos plot and the cut Pokemon), but taken on its own it's still a fun game, especially when you've bought the DLC. A lot of the hate for it just felt like nitpicking and I doubt that people would have cared as much about those nitpicked things had Dexit not happened.
pokemon fans explain their distaste all the time, normalfags just choose to ignore it because it means having a different opinion and they will not have it
>>46784259>you'll buy it anywayThen explain why I stopped buying Pokemon games since Let's Go.
>>46784300>Implying this site isn't a giant circle jerk Keep using those buzzwords though, I'm sure they'll make you feel superior and unique

>>46784283BW was my favorite of the series and I started with Ruby. Never played 2 though. Loved X/Y too. Not too thrilled about Swoosh because of how many changes they made to decrease the challenge. Especially with EVs and natures and shit. I mean it was always busy work but they made it so easy that it seems like they should just let me manually enter my mon's stats instead of money grinding.

>>46785363>Everything is shit! No, I will not properly explain why! Corporations are evil for wanting to make money for creating and distributing popular product. If you disagree, then you're a mindless bootlicker shill who hates criticisms.
>>46785367You're the one saying people shouldn't be allowed to critcize things, shill.
>>46785494>You're the one saying people shouldn't be allowed to critcize things.see >>46785367Just like how posting "let people enjoy things" in this thread isn't meant to be a hit against just letting people who just like the games be (at least I hope not, you have to be unhinged to be upset at people who mind their own business), me posting that wasn't meant to put down genuine critique. What I was decrying was the constant air of animosity that permeates Pokemon discussion (especially on this board), to the point where offering up any defense of a game that's currently in the hate zeitgeist will get you labeled as a shill or idiot because you dared like something they didn't.And no, before you say anything, this isn't just pertaining to discussion of newer games. Same exact shit happened for every single gen, and is currently happening for Gens 2 and 5
>>46784259just about anything at year 10 of being on vp
>>46784283You may be tired of hearing it, but it's the universal truth.

>new gen is badEverybody already knows it. And people will keep buying it. I know this is a stale community but i'm pretty sure there are more interesting topics to talk about.
>>46784259/v/ is better than /vp/ for discussion.Nobody says this but it's true.
>>46784259>if you like it you can't criticise it>if you don't like it it must have zero aspects you enjoyPeople don't realise you can like the overall game but still dislike aspects of it and it and vice versa.
>>46784279This. I don't need to explain myself every time I say I don't like something, and anyone trying to argue with my personal opinions can go fuck themselves.

>>46785523No, that doesn't undo what was said. You literally said "Letting people criticize things is bad." I'm sorry you're too thinskinned and domesticated to accept when your favorite corporation shits the bed.
>its shit>*pulls head off masudas boot* FUCK YOU #THANKYOUGAMEFREAK
>>46784259Whenever someone says>The pokemon community>Pokemon fans worldwideNo, FUCK YOU. Ill have none of this "cum-uh-nutt-ty" trash. Almost all pokemon players are either obnoxious redditors npcs, nostalgia normie bootlickers, or pervert degenerates. You're all fucking filth and you ruined the franchise with your filth opinions. I will have no part in your collective so speak for yourself.
>>46784302It is a bad game outside the DLC though. The main game is the worst of the series easily. Not a single $60 game has ever come out with a worse main game than SS
>>46788588This. If you want me to take you seriously, you need to provide a much more compelling argument than just "b-b-but it has MUH COMFY SOUL".
>>46784283>[DS game] is the peak of the series!Yes? It's true

>>46784283Except this is an objective fact as Gamefreak still gave a shit back then.

>>46789160based fellow /qa/poster
>>46784259"Charizard gets too much love"
Sword and Shield are shit games because after the Wild Area gets old, you realize the rest of the game is extremely restrictive and just a regular cake walk to the next story area. The only route that felt difficult to traverse was the Ice Water route between circhester and spikemuth.This is also on top of the rusher and unfinished nature with all the glitches, inconsistent art design, rushed story etc.
>>46784259People explained why they thought each switch and 3ds was shit a billion times. People got tired of "hearing the say thing a billion times". Now you have the audacity to complain about shit not being explained to you? Go fuck yourself you asshole. Watch a YouTube rant video. If you really want to know why people hate Söyed and Shilled just binge Distantkingdom videos
>>46788031Not really what I meant in the slightest, but if you want to completely miss context and mince words so you can fit me into your narrow view of "le cringe shill" be my guest
>>46789168Yeah, they gave so much of a shit they didn't even put online matchmaking in the game.
I just like playing pokemon haha
>>46789168>Gamefreak still gave a shit back thenSure doesn't seem like it.
>>46790476Was any of that possible on the DS, you massive faggot?

>>46789139>PersonalitiesYou can at least diagnose one of the PokeGirls with personality disorder OR mere autism. They have low to 0 personality
>>46784302Compare swsh to any other fucking game on the switch, hell compare it to 3ds pokemon, and this is coming from someone who despises gen 6 and 7. Even if they are "nitpicks", which you paypigs use to describe anything from 18 frames per second to the game literally being unfinished upon launch and requiring an extra $30 to even get a product you can have a debate on whether or not it's finished, 50 or more "nitpicks" kind of add up if you're mentally above the age of 8.
>>46784302Compare any dungeon in the SwSh game with ANY area in Zelda Twilight Princess.And then remember, TP turned 15 years old a week ago.
>>46789482>>46784259>gamefreak is a small companyTHIS.
>>46784386>Implying this site isn't a giant circle jerkOf furfags and shills? Yeah.
>>46790476>they still reuse these models 6 years laterShillbros.......... not like this......
>>46785523You're a schizo inventing boogeymen because you need to be a victim at all times. Literally no one will do anything you listed for saying you enjoyed a shit game, it's when your only defense for claiming it's objectively good is that you enjoyed it, you room temperature iq fluoridated zoomer.
>>46790438>online matchmakingUseless when you had friends like DS era chads, zoomie.
>>46785373Yes, actually.>>46784302>tripcunt<defending lazynessEvery single time.

>>46790476Hi there, Yawnfag. Kindly fuck off.
>>46790915If you're getting that response, then that's clearly what you've been saying.Now what I would like for you to do is go into your dad's gun cabinet (who am I kidding, you were probably raised by a single mom to become this screwed up), pretend the cold metal is a dick you're sucking since that's what you're most likely more used to, and pull the trigger. Do us all a favor, chop chop.
>>46790982why are you projecting your gay suicide fantasies onto me? You have something to say to the class, anon?
>SWORD AND SHIELD ARE BAD BECAUSE ______Very cool, anon. Any more "opinions" distant kingdom paid you to pretend to have?
>>46790486this is not an argument since any GBA hack now could pull that off.
>>46784259I'm tired of people saying that Hop and Avery are good characters. They're horrible. I liked Faba and Marnie better.
>>46790998>distant kingdombut he likes Sw/Sh??
>>46784259mostly a smashfag thing, but it's pokemon sect couldn't shut the fuck up about pic related.reminds me when FE Smashfags swore the Three House rep was going to be Edelgard.
>>46791034>Hop and Avery are good characterspeople say that? I only see threads shitting them for not being w*men or in Hop case, seemingly braindead.I like most of the games, although I'm not gonna lie, I think I prefer Pokemon Conquest to many of the mainline games lol.
>>46784259actually, it's shit because it cut over half of the content that previous titles on weaker systems had. then it had the audacity to try to sell half of the cut content back to you as $40 DLC about a year later, even though it should've been NO extra cost & part of the fucking release.it's shit because they expect faggots like you to pay more money for less product. and they were right, because mindless sheep like you flocked in by the millions just to lick masuda's hairy nutsack.
>>46784364You're still here tho, cuck.
>>46790599Did you know that non-Pokemon games on the DS had good animations that weren't tweening?
>>46790853it's funny that people keep saying this, when Game Freak is now twice the size of Monolift Soft, and Monolift Soft literally was unable to finish a game prior to their buyout form Nintendo.>B-BUT MONOLIFT SOFT DOESNT HAVE TO MAKE 8 BILLION POKEMON MODELS!!!!Neither does Game Freak. Creatures Inc. is in charge of creating the models. All Game Freak needs to do is (sometimes) animate them and insert the models into the games.Monolift Soft is split between acting as QA for half of Nintendo's games, co-developing for a good chunk of Nintendo's other games (namely BotW 2) AND they still have to make their own games too.
>>46791638Edeltrannies aren't even fire emblem fans.
>>46791763Yet GF can't even make a good game despite all of that.
>>46791763Really? I thought Game Freak was known for having a high turnover rate.
>>46790476>all gone from Galarlmao
>>46790998>objective criticism are opinionsPlease go play other videogames.
>>46790998This bullshit conspiracy theory again? Take your fucking meds!
>>46784283> I'm so tired of hearing 1+1=2 !!
I'm tired of people shitting each other just because they like a region.I'm one of those autists that unironically liked 90% of the games and is just disappointed with the SwSh game although I do like some of the concepts (even if poorly handled) introduced in it.Man, it fucking sucks when I'm on a thread about something about x region then one guy turns into a shit fest with a bait post like 'Johto is shit and who cares' or 'Unovabortations are the reason pokemon is ruined' and I seriously doubt the shit flinging anons even care enough to post there.
>>46784283I agree with this. Saying this is peak normie opinion and doesn't add anything to the discussion.
>>46790599>In HGSS and the entirety of Gen 5, you access your items on the bottom screenso it does a thing that could be done with just 1 screen instead of something actually useful like gen 6?>You're an idiot.You're the idiot if you unironically think DS games can't have good animations. Play more games.
>>46793276most people are mentally ill trolls or mega autistic who want anarchy because they barely have a grasp of their own lives. That's why we keep getting freaks such as PreciousLeaf (who seriously needs to get permabanned off the internet because he's an autistic asshole just aware enough of his autism that he uses it as an advantage), Slugfucker, Yawnfag, PissAnon, and so on and so on.
>Anything that combines sex and/or love with pokemon/figures from pokemonYou fucks are autistic
>>46792743What's the rundown on this, I've seen it posted occasionally, but without any context.
>>46784259Every single thing in this thread.
>>46794018Strap in, it's a wild fuckin ride.So sometime last year, a shill who I'm pretty sure has some legitimate form of mental illness came up with a conspiracy theory that a cabal of poketubers being lead by distantkingdom were paying people to pretend to dislike gen 8 in order to fake a controversy, and then make videos and profit off of said controversy. They offered zero evidence, but shills flocked to it so they could say "NO U" whenever they were accused of being a shill. For nearly a week, the entire board was flooded with shills claiming that anyone who disliked gen 8 was paid to pretend to do so, and the real shills were the people paid to shill against sword and shield. People began claiming they were paid by random poketubers to pretend to hate swsh as a joke, but the original anon who started this couldn't tell they were joking and started using these posts as his only evidence of his crazy theory. Eventually, something snapped and he started claiming a random fire emblem youtuber who made a video about swsh that got ~20k views (when his fire emblem content often got 100K or more) was part of this, and the shills realized just how crazy this fucker is, and tried pretending they didn't spend the better part of a week shitting up the board and genuinely going along with it when it was convenient for them. Now, 90% of the time you see it referenced is someone mocking it, but if you see a crazy person get really fucking indignant when told to take their meds, it's probably that original schizo.

>You are x amount of buzzwords for not caring about postgame boxfillers that will return in 1-2 years>GF has money so that means all criticism I say cannot be questioned >Why won't TPC market towards me? I just haven't bought a gane in nearly a decade, whine about other people buying products I personally don't like and complain about every single new game for it being new.
