@Octane my reasoning for the number is mostly the wild area. Have a good percentage of those Pokémon be exclusive to the different conditions of the wild area. Some maybe even don’t appear until after post game.

That way each player could be having a rather different experience depending on which ones they find during their main quest, and they can give the players more legacy monsters to play with without overfilling the rest of the region with species, like X and Y.

Keep in mind this could also include the expanded post game dex that these games tend to do, like Black and White for example.

@Morpheel Yeah, that's a good point. They can have quite a few of them roaming that field. I just hope there are enough new ones.

Gamefreak has been known to be pretty bad at optimizing and at getting use to new hardware. I can understand them struggling with this big leap for them. I was a bit confused since I assumed that the stuff with Gen 6 was to avoid these issues in the future, but I can see it. They have very slightly altered some of the models too, so not sure.

Apparently in a famitsu interview it was confirmed that’s z-moves and mega evolutions are now gone. Which i understand why, Megas weren’t exactly a sustainable idea and they did bust the power creep of the game and partially the same for z-moves. Dynamaxing is basically the two in one but far far more cost effective. Since they mostly need to upscale the models, but I’m gonna miss Megas. For their time they were unique and honestly dynamaxing is not a very visually appealing mechanic. Maybe if the Pokémon models looked more alive perhaps.

@CanisWolfred No that's Pokemon fusion when they run out of ideas next gen.

If this is a new policy they just do for each future game, I can’t wait for it to become like Smash where everyone is just waiting to see if their favorite mons made it in or not.

except for Gen 1 of course

Yeah it is a shame that there are people out there who take things too far. It’s almost always the case on the internet and it sadly hurts both sides.

@-Green- usually the term is so misused that anything short of pure worship is "toxic".

@Mittens you could of course try not implying that criticism is "toxic" and try engaging in a discussion of opinions. Instead of trying to turn this into an us vs them, I'm good you're evil mess discuss things in a respectful way. It's not exactly elevating the level of discourse to just show up and immediately start accusing people.

@Mittens yeah ok so you just decided to derail an entire thread on a completely unrelated website to offer no context to your comments because some unnamed people someone somewhen might or might not have done something you didn't like. Your comments had absolutely nothing at all to do in any way with what was going on in the thread, that again is not even on the same website as the people you're upset with. Right yeah that makes sense.

I mean it’s not that big of a deal, but it is annoying that this will be a future policy for Pokémon. Maybe it’ll get better in the future with Gamefreak hopefully improving animations and quality, but I won’t deny that Game Freak has made a habit of removing features such as these.

I can also understand that it may annoy people who don’t want to possibly be unable to use their special or favorite Pokemon.

Pokemon developers being able to work at a healthy pace so they can put out the best product they can without burning out the majority of their team and therefore will have a reliable pool of talent than can pull from and help build upon the foundations set by each game >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> rushing out two games to market after numerous employees spend 100+ hour work weeks to meet their taskmasters' demands, slowly losing their sanity and sense of self-worth in the process.

^^^Of course that as well, but that largely is part of the problem that Pokémon is becoming increasingly more time consuming and difficult to make, but the time given to it to be developed hasn’t really grown.

That's a good point, and unfortunately, the only reason they haven't gotten more time is because it would cost them a lot of money - and I don't mean potentially missing out on a holiday season, either. It'd be great if they simply adjusted the entire multi-media schedule to allow for more time to get the main franchise up to speed. Hopefully that'll take the reactions to this into account, and perhaps the post-Switch generations will be spread out over longer time frames.

@-Green- @CanisWolfred The problem is this is all self inflicted by gamefreak. No one expects them to work themselves to death. However, it would be a false dichotomy to assume the only options are cutting content or working to death. Does pokemon actually need to be an annual franchise? Did anyone ask for sun/moon, ultra sun/moon, lets go, town, pocket card jockey, harmoknight, and whatever that stupid elephant game was? Why couldn't they use the models that are already completed? If they're really having trouble with 3d assets then why couldn't they hire more 3d artists? It's not like pokemon is lacking for cash.

We really do need to stop and look at things for a moment here. Monolith does games like XCX, and XC2 with all kinds of models in a huge open world and doesn't even consider it a big budget game. Ubisoft just showed us Watch Dogs Legion with tons of detailed, high quality, complex characters, dragon quest games come with all kinds of npcs and hundreds of monsters with animations and such. Yet what might be the number one most valuable IP in all of gaming just can't handle making some simple animations.

That's why people are upset, it's not that they want gamefreak to kill themselves, it's the evidence suggest they're not really trying.

@Yorumi I think Nintendo's likely the reason Pokemon is annual, not Game Freak and Nintendo's done the same for Zelda though ports and remasters give the Zelda team more time.

Dropping the news about the lack of support for numerous Pokemon from previous games during E3 was pretty smart, I think. People aren't going to cry and scream about this for months. By the time November rolls around, all but the most embittered fans will likely be eager to dive into the new games.

Outrage culture is ferocious, but it also has no real longevity to it.

Anyway, that gym theme sounds fantastic. Aside from the National Dex controversy, I've loved everything I've seen about this new set of games.
