Might be the first Pokemon game I get since Gen V.  It's got all the Pokemon I like in it with some new forms and evolutions.

Weirdly I've heard there's going to be very few trainer battles though, which seems a bit odd given that's sort of the basis of the Pokemons.

Really on the fence about this game. I'll probably wait for reviews.

You will find out who you are not a thousand times, before you ever discover who you are. I hope you find peace in yourself and learn to love instead of hate.
i recently finished brilliant diamond and i was left unsatisfied, dont have high hopes for this one considering game freak couldnt even put out a decent remake

Arcanine would be better if he didn't get dark colouration.

Actually like the new Qwilfish, Ursaluna, Viet Cong Decidueye, Wyrdeer.  The leaked Mons in the game are nice.  Still the game looks like an N64 title.

i'm not the kind of guy who thinks pokémon designs have been going down hill—i think there's no shortage of cool and interesting designs in basically every single generation

that said, this is the shittiest batch of new designs we've gotten in a long time—especially the ones that haven't already been revealed yet

hisuian zoroark is probably my favorite

To be quite genuinely frank and honest I'm not buying this until I can get it for like half price at a flea market.

The graphics are worse than BOTW which makes no sense.  It looks like sludge even when people do emulator shit with it.  But I could ignore that and put my brain back in N64 mode to get into it.

But the worst thing I see from the footage is just a boring empty world like some kind of carnival park ride instead of a living environment.  The Pokemon just wander around not even interacting with one another or the environment.  There's really no extra content or random encounters.  Pokemon run on Ocarina of Time AI, just Spawn Pokemon > run wandering script > run proximity detection script > notice player > attack player.  This is literally the way AI were handled almost thirty years back in OoT and the earliest 3D games.

GF is just lazy.  Simple as.  They put in the bare minimum amount of effort.

Imagine if walking around you'd see:
>Pigeot swooping down grabbing Magikarp from rivers
>flocks of bird Pokemon together
>herds of horse Pokemon
>mama Ursaluna with baby Teddiursas
>Slowpoke fishing with their tails
>fire Pokemon combining their flames
