@Snaplocket If you want to play games like Xenoblade or Fire Emblem, I highly recommend checking out other games in those series.

I'm afraid Pokemon won't satiate your Final Fantasy or Gears of War yearnings, either.

@Snaplocket it is a lazy game in a series notorious for laziness. That kind of says a lot. Game freak’s laziness will be defended to the end of the earth though.

I mean, criticize them and the game all you want, but it's kinda unrelastic to expect the same reaction from everyone? Not everyone will hate what they see, and not everyone will like the same things.

For example, three houses is not in my radar, like at all, nothing about it makes me want to buy it, meanwhile I don't default to hate and disgust at the sight of any harvest moon game made by natsume... And that's ok.

This game is a massive step up from what I played on 3DS. I’ve got nothing but praise for everything I’ve seen.

I especially like how you can bust out the bicycle at any point and cruise around the world, and I love how it transforms into a pedal bike that can cross any lake. Reminds me of skells in Xenoblade X. The world is really beautiful too, and it’s great to finally have control over the camera. Switch is the best thing to happen to Pokémon to date.

@JaxonH All I can say is, I disagree. @CanisWolfred Define "completely different" please.
@Ralizah I meant more in the sense of being a step up form the previous games, not genre or gameplay style. In all seriousness, I WOULD like a mainline Pokemon game with an actually good story.

The last trailer certainly made the game look really great... But then the TreeHouse happened and it all went downhill from there. It's saddening.

Oh, and it’s awesome to see Pokémon in the world like Let’s Go, while still retaining some random battles in certain areas. And the giant stadium battles.

So many improved aspects of the game, sometimes I lose track of them.

I bet a Switch that, despite all the backlash, Sword and Shield are still going to sell over a million copies each.

I further expect that, even despite the limited Pokedex it will still prove very popular. It's still the first traditional Pokemon RPG in HD.

Pokemon Sword and Shield is going to sell millions no matter what. It's Pokemon on Switch.

I was as confused as Ralizah, I assumed you were expecting a major genre shift. And we'll just have to agree to disagree. I think this looks like just as much of a major step up in as those others you mentioned. I mean, Three Houses looks great, but Fire Emblem is also no stranger to console hardware, and they spent the last couple of games feeling out where they wanted to go. As Pokemon's first foray on consoles, this is looking far better than I anticipated.

I'm doubtful that the National Dex ordeal will have a massive impact on sales. A lot of people are bummed out...but how many are going to stop buying a new game because of some old content that they can't access? Let's Go also receieved some vocal backlash and has done decently well.

Sword and Shield have looked fantastic pretty much every time I've seen them. Proper next gen entries in the series. I'm not going to do this thing where I suddenly act like a game I'm interested in and that looks good is complete trash because of a controversial design choice.

@Snaplocket And that's a valid perspective to have. I just don't understand why you'd make the comparison to completely different series when they're not similar or related at all.

Anyway, while I wouldn't mind a good story in these games (I actually really liked the narrative focus of B/W in this regard), I've more been craving a Pokemon game that lets me alone and allows me to explore and play at my own pace, and these games seem to go a long way in that regard.

What kind of non-prediction is this?

Of course they'll sell over a million. Pretty much every pokemon game since the bronze age has sold over 10 million.

It's dangerous to go alone! Stay at home.

Gamefreak pls bring Gogoat in Gen 8. I spent a week breeding a Grassy Pelt perfect Gogoat with the correct egg moves and everything. I wanna try some funny strategies using Dynamaxing since it can spread Grassy Terrain while also attacking. ;;

@Dezzy Indeed. And I'm afraid that kind of comment (unless responding to someone actually saying the games will bomb) comes off as "You all can complain all you want, but the game is still going to sell great so your opinion doesn't even matter!"

I really hope it isn't meant that way, but I've seen enough snide remarks toward people expressing dissenting opinions in my time that it's not hard to read through them.

@Snaplocket Does it have to go beyond that? I mean, I've always been very vocal about how Sun/Moon removing the National Dex was really bad, and at least in S/M/US/UM you could at least transfer the Pokemon that weren't available in the regional Pokedex over. I should have known this is what GF was leading toward, but silly me... It seems like me, Ms. Pessimist, somehow wasn't pessimistic enough and didn't actually see this coming. LOL

My other complaints are pretty minor, I'll admit.

@Heavyarms55 The game really isn't receiving that much backlash. We here are just the vocal minority, I'm not afraid to admit it. (except the national dex, which is honestly the least of my complaints)

@Ralizah Let me put it this way, Xenoblade 2 (and this is coming from someone who considers the first game to be average at very best) was a HUGE improvement and evolution for the series. Fire Emblem Three Houses, in my eyes, is a big evolution for the franchises strengths (and the graphics in that game aren't even that good). By contrast, Pokemon Sword and Shield (in my opinion) are only a very minor step up and feel like 3ds games pushed onto the Switch. I need to stress that out of all the First-Party Nintendo games, Pokemon is the only game that makes me feel this way. Disagree with me if you want, these are just my thoughts.

There should be more controversy over the champions design. He looks like a ten year trying to dress cool for a party. It’s a travesty
