  1. Somewhere in the deep offices of Game Freak, a team is furiously designing Hisusian starter evolutions, with one mission in mind: Save Austin's beard.

  2. I’m really worried they haven’t shown us any story footage of the game yet. I mean will it even have a story? Or is it just an open world catching game?

  3. Wasn't there an older game where people wanted you to show them different-sized Pokemon in order games?
    (Edit) FOUND IT! I knew the event was in Gen 3 games but I couldn't find the NPCs. Now that I found it, I'll write it as confirmed dialog. Anyway, not to sound like "one of those" guys, but Pokemon Size has been in the game since RSE. Specifically speaking, the Size of a Pokemon was almost never important except for certain NPCs from these games looking for sizeable Pokemon of a certain species. For example; RS had Barboach and Shroomish NPCs; E had Seedot and Lotad; FRLG had Magikarp and Heracross, DPPt had Remoraid; HGSS had Magikarp.

    Not sure when Weight was introduced…

    ^ To clarify, the size never had a visual effect on the Pokemon, it was just an existence within the game.

  4. Wouldn't it be better to switch to the pokemon at some point instead of just controlling the trainer?

  5. I just had a realization/theory… they keep showing those arches in the trailers that are off in the distance in the water. They seem to be showing them a lot as if they have alot of significance. And for some reason it made me think of the manaphy movie.. and we also just got manaphy in BDSP. How cool would it be to be able to explore manaphy’s home. That underwater palace or whatever the heck it was in the movie. THAT would be so fricken cool. I’d love that.. I’m really hoping that’ll be a thing. I hope they do stuff like that

  6. Is it just be, but does the battle system look kind of bad from what we've seen? Why change what works in the previous generations? Dunno, ignore me. I'm just venting cause this looks.. kind of bad to me?

  7. The games graphics is just poor. It's like we're looking at a game that was intended on the Gamecube graphically speaking.

    I remember people were complaining about the Sinnoh Remakes, and how people were going to skip Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl and will get Pokemon Legends: Arceus instead. Well now that we are close to the Pokemon Legends: Arceus release there has been a few trailers that kind of help determine the games quality. And let's just say that people are complaining about this game and it's quality for about the same reasons that people were complaining about Sword and Shield.

    Sw & Sh being released in 2019 and Pokemon Legends: Arceus being released in 2022 nearly 3 years later. The quality between these two games have not changed.

    Meanwhile you have your Mario, Donkey Kong, Metroid, Legend of Zelda, and many other Nintendo big league titles that can and even in some scenarios have improved graphically and quality wise within their own 3 to 5 year time gap. Going from Mario 3D world to Mario Odyssey is a graphical leap.

    It's one of those situations where a Billion Dollar company such as Gamefreak will lazily copy and paste assets and create a game with middle of the road graphics that isn't really on par with this generations gaming industry. Granted pokemon isn't a game that is notorious for its wonderful amazing graphics I get that but that's just it. It seems to be the norm and that people are accepting of this even though other games and developers are improving certain aspects of their own game while providing a modern touch in terms of graphics. Even Pixel related games have evolved over the years utilizing 2.5D graphics such as Octopath Traveler or Triangle Strategy.

    It's just strange how Pokemon has lots of formats, Mobile game, Card Game, Video Games, Merch / Collectibles. And yet the Pokemon Company / Gamefreak can't even push out a single Pokemon game that will provide the wow factor that other Nintendo games have provided. Pokemon certainly lacks the wow factor when it comes to their own video games.

    I wish that they would listen to their fans and realize that if it cost 27 million dollars to develop Pokemon Sword and Shield. They should just take us seriously and invest in a pokemon game that cost 50+ million dollars to develop. They'd make profit out of it anyways if they can make profit without trying then it's easily to say that they'd make profit if they'd push out a game with a twice the budget and two to three times better graphics and quality.

    Seeing the trailers now we can say that it's the final product and that any changes will be very minimal yet the quality and graphics will remain the same for Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Personally the game looks dated for a 2022 title.

    But I am certain people will hate on my comment and downplay it or better yet just complain how they didn't read it blah blah blah. People who take the time to write something, compare and break down the flaws in something are usually the ones who know what they're talking about.

  8. I like how you see a pokemon and send out whatever pokemon you want instead of always sending the top one in your list.
