- low-ass frame rate of the trailer isn't doing anyone any favors
- a region inspired by Spain could be cool, but the sweeping landscape shots aren't very impressive when what we're being shown is PS2-level graphics (and i hate commenting on graphics, but it's inexcusable how unimpressive these games look)
- after LeGo, Sw/Sh, and Legends, i'm personally over seeing pokémon in the overworld if all they're going to do is wander about aimlessly until they see you, like scuttlebugs in super mario 64
- i see they tried to show off some animations to inspire confidence that they're actually trying now, but i wasn't very impressed by anything in particular
- pretty doofy looking starters, i'd probably pick the green cat i guess after choosing Violet

Resounding "meh" from me. On the surface, it really doesn't look like a massive leap from Sword and Shield, and in order to rekindle the passion I had for Pokémon, I really needed it to be. I'll keep an eye out for updates, but this is probably the first generation of Pokémon where I don't feel one whit of excitement.

The gane looks like a damn Dreamcast game with a lighting engine taped on, why is it chugging frames like this.

Also good to know Gamefreak is definitely keeping their employees and indentured workers traped in a dungeon hooked to a caffeine drip to keep them cranking these games out at an unreasonable rate. Arceus just launched and they're still pushing this out this year.

going off yesterday's presentation, the games are looking a bit more promising now

being able to do gyms in any order sounds great, and the new battle gimmick seems mechanically interesting, even if i don't really care for it visually

first 10 minutes is all side-game bullshit (PoGo, Unite, Masters, and Café ReMix if you care about any of that)

last 10 minutes is all S/V focused and is worth watching—they show off the region, talk about the open world and game structure a bit, reveal some new Pokémon, and reveal the new battle gimmick called "terastal" which is pretty interesting

Terastal sounds like some kind of steroid.

Might buy at launch tho.

alright i watched the presentation

"scarlet and violet will be an open world rpg, a first in the pokemon series" what was legends arceus then? i didnt play that game

when i heard the male professors name, i thought they said churro lol, didnt know his name was turo

that new gimmick seems a bit confusing, does it mean any pokemon can be ANY type? if so then it might lead to some interesting setups and the like

the scarlet legendary having wheels but running on its legs looks so silly

Legends was only semi-open, in the sense that you have a big world to explore, but it's still divided up into individual (albeit decently large) sections. Basically, you can't go from one area to the other without checking in at the game's hub town first. Traveling in S/V will be completely freeform and seamless.

I was thinking maybe that each Pokémon would have a pool of possible Tera Types that they could have, just because certain type combinations would be very overpowered (an Electric-type Shedinja, for example, would only be able to get hit by moves of a single type, barring residual damage from weather, Leech Seed, etc).

But we'll have to see, because they haven't given out too many more details.

Yeah, that part basically confirmed that I'll be getting Violet, just because Miraidon looks way less stupid when it's driving around. I'm not huge on the idea of getting a legendary so early—could make the game way too easy, depending on how powerful it is—but maybe they'll make it so you can't actually battle with it until the end, or something.

Gamefreak please go back to top down until you learn how to release a game that isn't riddled with pure graphical jank and massive fps stuttering.

can't defend the performance issues—they're pretty embarrassing—but i can't help but feel like people are slightly exaggerating how bad they are

i'm having a good time. my personal biggest problem is that the gyms don't scale with your progression, which is extremely stupid in a game that advertises freedom so heavily. i also hate how slow the battle animations are, especially considering that you can't even turn them off (wtf)

but the characters are cool, region is nice enough, OST bangs, and new pokémon designs are pretty awesome overall (Lokix and Toedscruel are my guys). having a good time just going around, filling up my dex, and enjoying the inherently satisfying gameplay loop that comes with that.

i also wish the gyms had level scaling or something as well, i did my first gym (the grass one) and i stomped on it cuz all my pokemon were like 10 levels higher

later on i did the team star base, the one with mela (meia? the red hair chick) and we were equally leveled and the fight was actually fairly challenging, which was great
