I don't like how Salamence floats in the air since Pokémon X and Y. Dunno how to really articulate it, but when it stood on the ground in the GameCube and Wii games, there was something significantly more imposing about it, something more regal and cooler.
>>47344104What, you didn't like sky battles in X and Y?don't answer that, no one cared for them
>>47344104I will forever hate Sky Battles for ruining Flying types. Not to mention it was an utterly pointless feature.
It's solidly built, like it's mostly land based and the wings are mainly for gliding. Even the proper flying mons like Noctowl have this issue though.
could be worse, it could be XatuI'm just glad my boi Toucannon was made after the Sky Battle shit, he would have been butchered so hard
>>47344203Xatu especially pisses me off. It is KNOWN for staying still in prior gens and Dex. Now it flies awkwardly like a kite
>>47344161Sky Battles also ruined Eelektross. I miss when it was playfully bouncing on the ground during battle, instead of just floating in place like a work-in-progress animation.
>>47345494The dumb dance was never good no matter how much your autism tells you otherwise
>>47344104Why couldn't they atleast program the flying animations for the pokemon that work better standing for only sky battles?Fuck.
>>47345502Damn, no need to get hostile. I'm just saying /I/ liked it better since it wasn't generically swimming in place.>>47345554This. The damn eel had actual arms, after all.
>>47344117One would need to remember them to care for them.
>>47344104You can thank the one-time Sky Battles in X and Y for the shitty idle animations of flying types
>>47344104>Dunno how to really articulate it, but when it stood on the ground in the GameCube and Wii games, there was something significantly more imposing about itQuite literally in its name, salamence was more MENACING in its ground stance. Like it was always rearing for a deadly strike.
If Sky Battles are responsible for this, why haven't they fixed it yet? It's been 2 gens since then
>>47345740Because making new animations is a difficult task for a indie developer, especially when all the effort is dumped into making sure that Charizard has a new special-snowflake form and that all the latest Rock and Ice-type Pokémon are shit.
>>47345740Because GF is shit, TPC is greedy and Ishihara Masuda have brought enough green through the years to escape scrutinyNow that GF's been dragged into the Main Nintendo compound there's a slight chance their work ethic might improve somewhat, even if the (hopefully positive) results aren't immediately apprent for a while
>>47344104Then I can hit it with a ground type.
>>47344104>NOOOOO!! WHY DOES THE FLYING POKEMON FLY!the absolute state of this sub.
>>47345912>Birds fly all of the timeBad bait
>>47345780>Now that GF's been dragged into the Main Nintendo compoundWhat? Did I miss something?
47345912>subnot even worth a reply
>>47345554The 3D Pokedex app version was perfection Should've stayed that way
>>47346060>this post brought to you by a 6 year old when 3ds was new
>>47345912You're right, flying pokemon should never be allowed to be on the ground. Ground pokemon should never be off the ground. I will personally go back in time and make sure that Gligar never gets made. It is an abomination to what is just
>>47346114Except I started high school when the 3DS came out. I understand underage plague this board but don't be like that anon
>>47346208it had to be a ZOOM ZOOM
>>47345740Haha I don't know and GF is fucking lazy
>>47345962Game Freak's offices have been relocated to Kyoto, Kanda Square alongside other Nintendo things, Nintendo are absolute terrors when you're in their turf and aren't sticking to a certain degree of quality (Silicon Knights was apparently constantly kept on a leash when they were working on Eternal Darkness and MGS Twin Snakes) so conventional wisdom declares that Masuda and his merry band of fucks can no longer pull shit like splitting their programming team in half to release stupid crap like Town when a big important game like the next gen of Pokemon is still in the oven
>>47344104It hurts so much
>>47345740Because that would require someone at GF to change the all the flags in their default idle animations. Do you have any idea how time consuming that would be? Like, 4 maybe 5 hours. That's way too hard.
>>47346340This is genuinely upsetting.
>>47345554Correct me if I'm wrong, but most Pokemon in Stadium/Colo/PBR had separate animations for if they were on the ground or in the middle of using Fly didn't they?
>>47346340I can SEE the difference in texture quality.
JUST MAKE GENIUS SONORITY THE LEAD DEVS YOU FAAAAGSCOLOSSEUM AND XD WERE AMAZING
>>47346586Yes. A small handful of pokemon kept their idle animations when using moves like Fly, typically either those who weren't supposed to be using Fly in the first place or extreme outliers, or a small handful of pokemon that are just genuinely always airborne. Fearow, for example, has just always been a pokemon that always flew.
>>47344104This one hurts me the most
>>47345573What does oekaki have to do with this?
>>47346893>Yeah just make the tips of its wings wiggle a bit, that'll do>Are you sure no-one will complain about this one?>Haha, I don't know
>>47346335>(Silicon Knights was apparently constantly kept on a leash when they were working on Eternal Darkness and MGS Twin Snakes)I'm still surprised Eternal Darkness turned out as well as it did, even if there's still a bit of jank. Silicon Knights fell HARD after that game.
>>47346586Yes, except for those that couldn't legally know fly.
>>47347174Noctowl was the outlier for some reason and that's only in Colo.
>>47347147They lacked the corporate tard-wranglers that only Nintendo could provide (Which is supposedly one of the reasons Masuda is in general so reluctant to work closely with them)Hope they keep him and Ohmori in line for the next projects (The outsourcing of BDSP tells me that might already be the case)
>>47347256>Noctowl was the outlierNo it wasn't.
>>47347292stop it, you're making the gamecube kiddies cry.
>>47346340Is it flying? Or just falling with style?
>>47346586they had an animation for flying, but for some reason they'd default back to neutral pose when they were in the airit looked kinda goofy, but it's not like the mainline doesn't do that shit tooremember Toucannon's Z-Move animation where it would be blasting through the sky still in its default standing pose?
>>47348082This is so weird when you remember every Pokemon had walking and running animations in Sun and Moon's files, there was nothing stopping them from using those animations for Z moves, since a number of them had the Pokemon rushing in at some point, but they just don't, resulting in a ton of animations where a Pokemon's idle is just flying at high speed without moving.
>>47348194Gamefreak are retards. More at 11.
>>47348082this shit is hilarious to me
>>47344104So many pokemon look awful now. Typhlosion, Nidoking, Archeops, Skarmory (though I know in the GCN/Wii titles it was also flying, but in my opinion it should be on the ground like it’s actual gen 3/4 sprites.) to name a few.
>>47348619i.e. >I don't know what the pokemon looks like except for this shitty 3/4 angle of a sprite
>>47348636How much were you paid to post this?
