Falseflagging as the other side doesn't suddenly make the dexcut okay, you know.
Anything after ORAS is completely shit for not having the full dex regardless-- and quite frankly I'm not sure if they'd even be good with it since Alola and Galar are so fundamentally flawed.
Yeah, BDSP is the most playable game since, but it's a far cry from what it could have and should have been. All this proves is how much of a flop Sword and Shield were.

Still a shit game with a shit region and a shit dex.

And I'm talking about Shitnoh. The worst region. Gen 4 fucking sucks in every area.

>>48837463
yeah sure unovabort.

I’m waiting for gen 9 if I want a good game.

The best ones are always on thirds.

Hoenn/kanto remakes

Hoenn remakes/Serena/mega evolution

DP was aight, BW was… BW. SM was aight, SWSH was… British.

There’s a patter here.

I don't know why they're crowing about Metroid, it's never been a big marque. A tin of liquid shit with a Pokémon wrapper would probably outsell every Metroid title ever made.

Even with the underground, the dex is kinda shit. Imagine it without the underground.

Sylveon and Greninja are like the only post gen 4 Pokemon that anyone actually cares about.

first 4 gens are the only gens that feel like pokemon to me
gen 5+ they all feel like fakemon

Unova was literally made as a reboot for the main games, it was pretty exhaustively assured to be functional.

Your taste in artstyle does not suddenly make the DP dex stop being an atrocity of a hodgepodge, the literal exact thing Unova's selling point was trying to avoid.

I'll take a full set of nugen "trash" over 25 years of accretion with gradual design changes. The latter means no contorting around stuff not part of the project.

BW is an at least decent game in isolation, DP were dependent on brand identity for people to accept the bullshit of legacy mons and coverage contortion.
>>
>>48839777
To focus on the actual point:

Black and White are quite passable games in isolation, but the all-new main game dex made them a very obvious "breakpoint" in the franchise making it feel "wrong" as a *Pokemon* game.

Diamond and Pearl have a pile of screwed up game design from having to work with over a decade of legacy code and little ability to change it, but because of still caring about it they had the building blocks for Platinum to quite easily fix the most critical issues.

Essentially, VP genwar bullshit comes from the fact that the games evolved over time and BW gave a dividing line that doesn't fit either side.

XY have more identifiable similarity in all matter to SwSh than to DP, while the first four gens are muddled enough from gradual change to operate as a block...

And BW doesn't fit in with either. Its problem is that it has no real franchise power in it, because the preceding games were gradually changing and the later games settled on a different formula.

If BDSP by a miracle had all the pokemon it would sell even more.

lol no.

It will be the most refunded pokemon game due to how boring it is

Unironically one of the best designs in the franchise. Love this trash bunny monster thing.
