No Pokemon game is more replayable than SwSh. That is a fact.
>>
is it because there's so little post game content that you have to replay it to get any enjoyment out of it?

unironically no u

Literally any of them that came before Sun and Moon are.
>>
>>47010307
They are. When they're in the base game and not excluded to sell a useless $16 sub that does the same thing Bank did 7 years ago for a third of the price.
SWSH is a mediocre game, but what pushes it over the edge is the absolute middle finger it gives the target audience (children, remember?) Who can't afford all this bullshit paywalls they're putting up.
It's scummy, simple as.

>>47009639
This game is so fucking miserable I couldn’t stomach trying to replay it again outside of transferring a level 100 Pokémon and speed running it just to get to the end and get the other bear/horse. It’s just fucking awful.
>>
>>47010512
no, I will die having fun playing new Pokemon games while you constantly seethe over how every game except your precious childhood DS games are shit for the rest of eternity

DStards are the new genwunners.

>>47010532
CHADwunners never did anything wrong so I take that statement as a compliment.

>>47009639
I bought it at the beginning of the pandemic and I still haven't finished it. I still think everyone should buy it and support Game Freak though.
>>
>>47010581
>CHADwunners never did anything wrong
not according to DStards.

>>47010608
Listen to this DSgod then, the CHADwunner sensed what Shitfreak would eventually become, had we listened the series would be saved.
>>
>>47010532
Hey, don't group Unova fans with the obsessed people. Most of us like the newer games from what I've seen.

and the best part is? base sm still has more Pokémons than swooshi 2 dlc’s later.

>>47010351
>collecting shinies from raids
redpill me about this, are the odds better than shiny hunting with charm or breeding?
also is there a difference between random raids in the wild area and what they call dynamax adventures? I havent tried those yet, I just beat Leon and now going through the first DLC
>>
>>47010382
>They are. When they're in the base game and not excluded
I agree, Sword and Shield is the best game because it has the highest number of Pokemon in the base game instead of needing to be transferred in after buying another game.
>>
>>47010035
People are too harsh on SwSh, but it is kind of annoying how much content/Pokémon are exclusive to the wild area. The Pokémon variety on the routes seems really poor
>>
>>47009639
wait when we say "replayable" do you mean a full reset or just playing on one save file? If you mean the former I have to disagree HGSS, Platinum, B2W2, and ORAS all beat that, and for the ladder I agree. Raids/DA make the games have a ton of reason to play past the credits
>>
>>47010382
>They are.
Okay and SS has the most amount of catchable pokemon. Thanks for BTFOing yourself.

Knew he was the villain from the first time I saw him but when it came time to explain his motivations he doesn't come off as a Pokemon villain so much as a modern day politician fretting over stuff like global warming and other issues decades or even centuries away. And honestly he did nothing worse then Sordward and Shielbert but those two bastards got off the hook where Rose went to prison.

Weak villains
>>
>>47009639
No pokemon game past gen 4 is enjoyable to replay because they constantly roadblock you with unskipable monologues and cutscenes.
>>
>>47011468
Gen 4 does this too and is even worse to replay because of all the snow and mud spots
>>
>>47011468
No pokemon game is enjoyable to replay because the campaign is a piss easy shallow experience and the only appeal is the multiplayer and finding all the new pokemon for the first time

The Wild Area is shit and killed the diversity on the actual "routes" (hallways) in favor of an empty field where there's nothing to do but check the weather and look for the 300th Pokémon they put there.
>>
>>47009639
Fucking Pong is more playable than this shit.
>>
>>47012777
does online really matter that much if you’re just doing a casual ingame playthrough? I didn’t start using online features until way later and even when I did I really didn’t feel it was necessary. online is cool for competitive or battling friends but I never felt that it was all that important for ingame playthroughs of the ds gen games.
>>
>>47009639
Fuck no
Those cutscenes drive me nut
>>
>>47012864
SHHHHHHHHHHHHH
>>
>>47011360
Sordward and Shieldbert had to do community service. They didn't get off the hook. Plus they did funded the Galarian Star Tournament so that probably put some good faith In people. Remember, Rose voluntarily turned himself in.
>>
>>47012864
>does online really matter that much if you’re just doing a casual ingame playthrough
why the fuck would I care about replaying these games to do the fucking piss easy ingame playthrough again? Is this really how /vp/ autists replay games? If you made an argument about the battle facilities I'd at least understand that but jesus fuck
>>
>>47009639
What exactly is replayable about them?
>>
>>47009639
*Less, except maybe SM/USM
>>
>>47013197
if you play pokémon games exclusively for an online experience it seems like that would just invalidate the games in the series that don’t support online or do support online but have an inactive player base (3ds gen games). I thought by replayability op meant just replaying ingame campaign.
>>
>>47009639
Because multiple save files?
>>
>>47009639
XY is more replayable, simply based on Pokémon availability
>>
>>47013586
>that would just invalidate the games in the series that don’t support online or do support online but have an inactive player base
yes, it does, because the main appeal of this series is the multiplayer and the discovery aspect, not the objectively shit singleplayer that you can beat by spamming one move on your starter on every NPC.
>>
>>47013654
>swsh and legpiss are by default the best games in the series because they have online
well this was pointless
>>
>>47013762
Yes.
>>
>>47013654
All the games have multiplayer though
>>
>>47013779
And the new ones have better and active multiplayer.

>>
>>47013799

>>
>>47009639
well, once i decided to captrue every pokemon in an apriball will HA as a galar living dex, i am now enjoying the hell out of it. i am also workong on competitive teams which will be ready soon
>>
>>47011939
You can't call a Pokemon your favorite if you don't use it every opportunity you get.
>>
>>47013844
Why would I care about raids? PVP is what matters above all. All raids gets you is shit for the PVP, Showdown skips that shit with faster teambuilding.
>>
>>47013872
>with faster teambuilding
and slower matchmaking because everyone plays the dogshit 6v6 format
>>
>>47011939
Anon we aren't talking about LGPE
>>
>>47013879
Who's everyone? VGC is still a common format, and PVP isn't held down by that timer in general.
>>
but allister and bea dont fuck
>>
Depends which you mean. Replayable as in "I want to play this entire game again"? No, Gens 1-3 are way better for that. Replayable as in "I want to continue playing this postgame"? No HGSS and B2W2 are probably the top. Sword and/or Shield are probably alright in the former category as far as team composition goes, given the Wild Area options, but the same could be said for XY and SM having way too many fucking Pokemon, XY especially, and the experience isn't that smooth. On the other hand, if you're talking postgame content the only major thing to do is Raids, which are either RNG NPC bullshit, or rely on other people which is fucking tenuous at best. That having been said, LAN mode will keep raids alive as long as the internet exists at all, which is more than I can say for some of the best parts of the Gen 6 games.
>>
>>47013920
>VGC is still a common format
Not even close to the actual game. Interesting how you didn't mention 3v3 either, Smogshitard.
>>
>>47013931
>XY h-has too many pokemon! play these games you need to do these retarded gimmicks like swarms and pokeradar instead!

every fucking time.
>>
>>47013932
>Not even close to the actual game
Ok, and?
>Interesting how didn't mention 3v3 either
Was I supposed to?
>>
>>47013958
There are over 150 Pokemon available before the second gym. It's fucking ridiculous, how can you even balance something like that? Like, Gen 1 or their remakes, or Gen 3, those are much more reasonable pools with varied options without going fucking overboard. SM might be reasonable, but that game is hard to compare in general. If there's a Pokemon game that gives you more options than that by that point, please inform me.
>>
>>47014006
>There are over 150 Pokemon available before the second gym
Yeah, and it's great, Sinnohfag. Meanwhile if all those Pokemon were arbitrarily slapped after the credits you would probably start sucking its cock for how great the """post-game""" is.

>>

>pokemon in pokemon game bad
Yeah, we do.
>>
>>47014018
Sinnoh is garbage for almost the exact opposite reason (there's only a few good options, and they're also almost all before the first gym). If we're talking about replayability in terms of playing the game from the beginning again, having way too many Pokemon upsets any sense of balance the game has. On the other hand, you could argue that having a lot of Pokemon is good for the postgame, which is technically true. That's the question I was asking in my first post, which one are we talking about?
>>
>>47014049
>having way too many Pokemon upsets any sense of balance the game has
No Pokemon game is balanced, all of them are trivially easy, and if you think otherwise you have double digit IQ.

Fuck off Kaloscuck, don't bring down good games with your trash.
>>
>>47014074
There's a difference between balance and difficulty. You can balance a game to be easy, and Pokemon does, but there's also a degree of easiness to it. And there's how easy it feels, or how easy it is to find the right answer, or any number of other factors. I wouldn't complain about Kirby being easy, but I would complain about Kirby feeling miserable to play, to put it another way.
>>
>>47009639
its not playable in the first place. its the only main series game i havent finished since 1998
>>
>>47009639
Of course it is. Have you heard about the dying ORAS catridges? Soon all catridges will die besides swsh's and it'll be the only replayable one
>>
>>47009639
Still doesn't make it actually replayable.

You mean like how I complain about HGSS being miserable to play because the pokemon variety is shit compared to XY?

HGSS isn't miserable to play because of Pokemon variety, it's miserable to replay from the start compared to the originals because of extra cut-scenes and tutorials, and miserable to play in the postgame because of HP drain taking a fucking millenium, thanks Gen 4 engine. Minor problems in the long run, but bigger issues than Pokemon distribution.
