Platinum and HG/SS we still slow.

HG/SS I remember REALLY not liking.

Hard to believe Gen 5 is the same engine.

@DarthNocturnal If you thought Platinum and HGSS is slow, you haven't seen Diamond/Pearl which was much slower.

@EvilLucario

I also played the heck out of Diamond. I honestly don't remember any difference. If there was, it couldn't have been much.

@DarthNocturnal It was bad. I nearly dropped out of Pokemon after Diamond and Pearl, til I got to play a Platinum version and found how improved it was.

Speaking of the DS games, I’m going to miss the dual screen display. It just felt so good having the menu and moves on the bottom screen and the overworld and battles on the top. Maybe it’s because I’ve been doing it that way for a decade, but I’m worried about the screen feeling cluttered. Not as much the overworld, but the battle system. Granted, they have a bigger screen to work with, and the games that came before Diamond and Pearl are still awesome, so I don’t know if it’ll be a bad thing or just different.

@TheTetrisGuy I get what you mean. Looking back at the last console game, Pokemon Battle Revolution even, it still seems so cluttered. Granted, the resolution should be far higher than the 480p/i that Wii games were designed for, so hopefully the UI will make use of that.

As much as I love the Gen 4 games (they're collectively my favorite generation), I do agree that the battles did run a bit slow at times. I seem to recall Gen 3's battle speed being even worse tbh. LeafGreen especially seemed a bit slow in that department.

But yeah, I agree; battles need to be streamlined further.

@Tyranexx Gen 3 as a whole was around the same as Gen 1 and 2, and there weren't any speed differences between any of the Gen 3 games. There was that stupid pause after the "it's super/not very effective" and "a critical hit" messages that was especially annoying, which slowed down the pace a bit. Even Gen 4, as slow as Diamond/Pearl were with the HP bar and overall messages, didn't have as much of a delay after those messages (though it got outweighed by the other slow stuff).

Something like the Gamecube or Wii HUD system would be nice to see again. If the battles themselves are also like those games, then removing things like super effective or status messages can easily be done as they'd be shown to a greater degree than before.

So are the rumors about the Pokémon Switch announcement on the 25th incorrect? Or is there still time?

Well it's 24th April, 22:47 right now over here...

I won't hold my breath for 25th announcement though.

Not to get any hopes up, but it could be a surprise direct like the one in January.

It's usually late May or like a week before E3. Get ready for that box art XD

Don't hate me because I'm bnahabulous.

Blitzenexx

@EvilLucario: It could have been that. XD I just recall some battles taking quite awhile; I replayed Ruby about three or four years ago and couldn't believe how slow battles felt at times.

At the very least, we're all but guaranteed an update on if the game will indeed be a 2018 release or not due to the meeting on the 26th, as due to the sheer amount of time needed for marketing and such, it's do or die right now regarding the "2018 or later" moniker since there's no way they'd still be on the fence about it this far into the year.

Is it 2018 fiscal year, or 2018 period? Because I can see Pokemon coming at like March 2019.

@Snagrio That's what I'm interested in — regardless of a direct or not, we're going to know some more about Pokemon once the notes regarding the meeting on the 26th are posted. It'd be interesting if they still keep it 2018 or later though. Wonder what that would mean? I actually feel like that would happen - Nintendo would leave it as it's always been (2018 or later) to avoid drawing attention. But if they do leave it 2018 or later, that's an implicit confirmation that the game is likely coming out in 2018, but that they don't want to say "2018" because they'd prefer to announce that information in a direct or a more consumer-friendly way.

@EvilLucario I doubt they mean fiscal year 2018. They likely mean calendar year 2018. Fiscal years are probably only referred to when discussing the numbers of consoles and software sold.

@shadow-wolf I could see "2018 or later" reappearing possibly meaning Nintendo knows it's going to be later but they don't want to announce the delay until after E3.

@Grumblevolcano While technically that is possible (as it fits the definition of 2018 or later), I doubt that would actually happen. They may be unsure if it would release in 2018, but if there is any hope of it releasing in 2018 they will still keep it as 2018 or later. If they're absolutely sure that it won't release in 2018, they will quietly slide that in and hope there isn't much of a ruckus around it. Remember, they never announced any release date or timeframe for Pokemon, so there's no need to announce a "delay" since there was no promise of an exact release timeframe to begin with.

I think GameFreak and Nintendo should invest in a better PR department. Instead of letting rumors run rampant and hype swell based solely on speculation, they should quell it with statements as soon as it starts.

If my kids assume something is going to happen on say... Friday, based off of speculation and rumors from their brothers and sisters, it's up to me to correct that by telling them we aren't going anywhere. If I know that they're being set up to believe something that isn't true, yet don't take action to correct that, the blame would then partially fall on me.

Other game companies deny rumors and inform fans in a transparent way to make sure expectations match the timing and product all the time.
