New Pokemon games are shit. I’m so tired of literally everything about them that I’m not even going to post a real rant. Just a quick tl;dr.
Why the hell would they remove most of the stuff in the mid-high power tiers and then focus their additions on the two ends? Hidden Power is gone now too, so rip bolt-beam coverage for most electric types. I guess they’ve got no choice but to just be sad now.
Every excuse they made about not putting in all the mons was pure BS. The music is absolutely terrible and the game poses no challenge whatsoever other than some early game shenanigans in the wild zone that you can easily avoid. Most of the popular things were cut, and I feel like the monster designs are getting worse every gen. The detail that does exist went into all the wrong places.
Hop and Leon are the most annoying characters I’ve seen in a while, and I wish I could feed both of them to my brain-damaged rabbit.
I can see how a child or someone that hasn’t really been exposed to an excess of Pokemon could enjoy these games (music aside), and I’ll at least give them that. Maybe cynical adults just aren’t their target audience anymore.
