IT'S TRUE - GAMEFREAK LIED TO US ALL. (Pokemon Sword and Shield Controversy)

  • Published on Nov 14, 2019
  • The #GameFreakLied hashtag has been going wild on social media, and many are not understanding what it's all about. As much as I hate having to report this, potential customers deserve to know the truth about Pokemon Sword and Shield and its models.

    This is a video I feel morally obligated to upload, despite disliking the fact that I had to. It is not intended as a 'hate' video, but merely a video to tell the truth and inform prospective customers of shady business practices that we ALL should be disappointed by & should condemn, no matter what your position is on the dex. Hopefully, this is the last of the bad news and we can move forward together as a community.

      Princess Pikachu there are other good games on the switch, my hero academia, ni no kuni I highly recommend, yokai watch 4 will be coming out. Honestly that games a lot of fun, I love the storyline and even cried in some side game stories. Those games are worth the 60 dollars and getting a switch. I also got the switch thinking the Pokémon games would make it worth it but I luckily found several games later on that made it worth having.

      Davis Rush so because we get lied to and that’s just how it is no one should complain ever right? Don’t like something too bad, shut up and accept it is what you’re saying? Well that’s not how our world works and it’s a good thing too since we because of criticism and people not letting others walk all over them times have changed. Don’t use the excuse that that’s just how the world is because it’s not, people who have bought the game under lies are allowed to feel upset and criticize the game.

    • Sakura Hime

      Davis Rush not every company is lazy, people are mad because it’s a 60 dollar game and not everyone has money to spend on a more expensive ds game. Just because “ every company lies “ as you doesn’t mean we should just put up with it. I don’t have a lot of money, yet I bought the switch for Pokémon because they said they were moving to it, even though at the time They didn’t have any games I was interested, but i did cause they said they could do so much on the switch ect, so naturally I expected it to be so much more, I pre ordered the game at game stop was all excited until I actually played it and it was worse then sun and moon, I can get pass the cut out Pokemon , I hadn’t even watch the drama until after cause I wanted to know what the heck was going on. I saw so many glitches in my game, my game forced closes and I had to completely restart, the Pokemon they weren’t that great, the graphics were not what I expected ect. It was extremely disappointing and I’m basically stuck with an overpriced game I can’t return, since game stop doesn’t do that with new opened games. It was the first game I bought myself and I was really excited and it ended up being a waste of money I could have spent on something better. The only thing I liked from it was some of the British slang they used.

    Listen, I know this sounds stupid but... I like Sword and Shield. I grew up with the newer generations of Pokémon, so I can’t tell if Game Freak is making a terrible Pokémon game. Thank you for reading this comment and don’t criticize me just because I don’t think it’s terrible.

    At the very least

    At the VERY least
    They have a chance to fix this

    When the sequal game for this one comes out

    I say when because they'd be stupid not to release one

    They can build off what they already have and hopefully put in all the other pokemon

  • Craig Whitelaw
    Craig Whitelaw Day ago

    Yeah! Push the game back indefinitely if you’ve not reanimated EVERY frame of the pkmn models. F***in assholes. How dare they save money to produce and release a game that we enjoy playing. They should be spending the money, not us. Take a year to do it, hell, take 3 and release the game when the Switch will be older and the PS5’s out. Cheats. Cutting corners

    I will be fair and say that axeing megas was probably just to make dynas viable and not broken, because if you could only do one or the other, then everyone is going to choose mega over dyna because all dyna does is boost hp and give a special moveset, while mega changes everything about the mon. If you can use both in the same battle, well then that's just broken.

  • Soandnb

    7:52, THIS is the key as to why everyone's upset about models being reused. I distinctly remember Game Freak, during the X and Y age, saying something along the lines of "we're making high-quality models that will be able to last for a long time". Okay, makes perfect sense. Same models in Sun and Moon? No problem.
    But we learn that the National Dex is getting cut, an unprecedented move to make for a series whose catchphrase, officially or otherwise, is "Gotta catch'em all!", on what is supposed to be the big, shining move to HD consoles, and the REASON is for improving models, which DID NOT happen, and the Dex is still cut? THAT's why people are upset about reused models.

    Certainly doesn't help that the series has been devolving and becoming distilled into a more basic, core experience with many of the flavorings and seasonings found in past games not coming back. And the little glitches here and there, the oversights, etc... it all just adds up to leave a really bad taste in people's mouth.

    I could agree that they could have cut certain attacks/moves from the game; however, there was no good reason to cut any Pokémon (other than legendary Pokémon) from the game. I remind you all, we have given Gamefreak billions over the years! The least they can do is give a a decent game!

    I often think about how the Pokémon games these days are so rush and incomplete while Fire Emblem has gone from a game that was stuck in Japan to a mainstream game. At the same time, the company of Fire Emblem, Intelligent Systems, put forth so much effort into 3 houses, delaying it several times and making one of the most fun games I’ve ever played. Pokémon is fun to play but, god I wish that GameFreak would be like Intelligent Systems.
    (Sorry if this doesn’t make any sense I kinda just dumped all my thoughts out)

    I fucking called it
    They have a time limit
    Every Main Pokémon game is released about every year
    They already had 151 models because of let’s go for the switch
    Now the reason why not all Kanto Pokémon are in the game is because they also needed to finish the rest of the game and the internet features so they just chose Pokémon that were popular in tournaments and on twitch streams and TVclip let’s plays
    Now think about it
    3ds and switch are two different systems
    Just think about it

    They could have just made another remake like LGPE as a continuation in order to slowly but surely add the Pokemon missing, or just take a break from making a new game and fix some issues with the new hardware. Not make a half assed game.

    The one thing that my father drilled into me is to not lie because it never helps anyone in the end as the truth will ALWAYS find a way out. And so far, that has been nothing but true as controversy after controversy gets brought up against companies, movements, businesses, and just individuals keep getting pointed out for the lies they spread before trying to make the wildfire seem like it was just a lit match

    I would have rather had a full 3ds grade of the game and have 2 times the content. ( two regions and leagues to explore and have the dens with online play with 3ds graphics vs what they threw up onto the table... How TF Im 7 hr into the game and almost done is NOT worth my $60. I have bought $20 switch games with more content....

    Seriously disappointed with Gamefreak and wont be buying or playing Sword or Shield out of principle (big deal for me because I've played them all aside from the Gen 2 remakes, and I just bought SoulSilver). Perhaps if the "Ultra" versions are much better and refined then I'll consider buying them, but from my perspective Gamefreak will need to do some serious fan service in order to regain my, as well as many other fans trust.

      1. People are gonna be mad if you promise them something and then you don't give it to them.
      2. Completing the game doesn't mean you have to complete the Pokedex. It's usually more of a side thing that if you want to do it, you can. And making it easier kinda removes the big main challenge of catching them all.
      3. You're right it wouldn't make sense to find every single Pokemon so far in the same continent, but that doesn't mean Pokemon can't be moved to different continents (You know like Ash’s Pikachu) which is kinda how I always saw the bank.

Srsly go fuck a goose just cuz your 1 or 2 favourite pokemon arent present in the 'video'game. This is a really decent and well written game and most importantly it's fun. Just bcuz one or two famous youtubers hated on it yall keep hating on it. Fml I sound exactly like a little toxic gamefreak fanboy. You know what, Perhaps Iam. I deserve the hate, but yall would've deserved the new pokemon but decided to hate on it instead.

    Am I the only person who sees that most of the new mons are slowly starting to look like fuckin digimon? Mons in the past games were derrived from mostly actual animals, and mythic creatures. Like Cinderace, Orbeetle, Toxtricity(dont get me wrong I like this mon but still), Grapploct, and Duraludon for examples. And fuckin Eternatus is one of the worst! Wtf. Theres hardly any new mons, a good handful of the "new" mons are just reworked/redesigned mons from past games like Darumaka, Mr. Mime, Ponyta, zigzagoon(also one of the mon changes I like but that's not an excuse), and Stunfisk. And another thing, what in the actual fuck does a birthday cake/Creampuff have any business being turned into a mon?! Jesus fuckin Christ I've been a fan since day 1, and it goes without saying they've dropped the fuckin ball, by a long shot. Are you running out of ideas Gamefreak? For real, dont shit on a spoon, and tell us its fuckin pudding. Completely disappointed in this game, it had so much potential, and ya'll let it slip through your fingers.
    And Falinks looks like some of the catapillers from past mario games. Just wow....

      How about you deal with it, bro. You are entitled to your opinion as am I. Lack of imagination isnt an excuse. Converting pokemon into a digimon like style is b.s. especially when everybody and their Damn dogs get butthurt when comparisons are made between the two. Everyone has things they like and dislike about the new generation, and they are making their opinions heard as well.
      So you're comment on my opinion is irrelevant.
