    The sheep gym around the earky part of SS sums up the game: you're pushed down a straight line with few to no branching paths and you just keep rolling with no other goal than filling a check list

    I skipped the last few ds titles I found the return fun and refreshing I’m enjoying the game a lot so far it’s not perfect but it’s Pokémon I think most people are giving to much hate for a game meant for all ages

    A Pokemon game stays the same over the years, it gets hate.
    A Pokemon game makes changes, it gets hate.
    Keep spreading the hate, it keeps the franchise alive 👍🏻

    It’s consumers like this who will ruin Pokémon by buying whatever’s thrown at them. Let’s hope things get better, but with there track record I doubt that

    Metroid gamecube graphics and animation looked better than this game... It even had some voice acting atleast...

    it has a little something for everyone

  • Tushnim Gangopadhyay

    If your pokemons still can't say their names and merely have their models move up and down, side to side, or emit some light and sound instead of having attack animation which animes from two decades and more in the past made us believe they can and must do...then no, your game isn't better than anything you've done till date in terms of matters visual. The models have improved and game mechanics have somewhat changed.
    That is it.
    Conversations and text pop-ups are as irritating as ever. The exploration aspect has changed and is annoying in a whole new way now. And the only reason I'm not considering it a Shenmue 3 of Pokemon games is that at least a few things have changed a little. It's still a terrible show on Game Freak's part. They have tons of money and make the same game for decade after decade just to make more money in exchange for no value.

    i JUST beat leon just like less than 10 minutes before typing this comment.
    overall i can say the game is 7 to 8/10
    it was a nice game to play, i was immersed, but not blown away (because that is what 9 and 10 scores are for)

    • Garrett Glass

      Did you do any of the important stuff afterwards? Because beating the storyline in Pokémon is like reaching max level on WoW and then not playing anymore. The real goods is in the raids and online ranked battles


    i liked gen 2 most

    Game is not worth 60 dollars. It's a dumbed down version of an old pokemon game. The gyms take about 5 minutes to get to. The story is awful with no legitimate villain org to fend off. The Wild Area is small and changes weather every few feet for no apparent reason. The max raid battles are laughable and can be soloed easily. It's worth about 20 to 25 dollars and that is being fair. Overall the game is a 4/10. It's a woke gamer's wet dream.

    • Garrett Glass

      Have you even done any breeding or ranked battles? You know the main reason to actually play these games? Cuz most of the competitive players love it.

    Now I like Pokémon Sword and Shield, but they have LOTS of problems. Even my very gracious heart would give it a 8/10, but this?

      I pirated the game. I just beat the Fairy-type gym and so far, it’s mediocre. Glad I didn’t spend $60 on this.

      I've looked at several reviews of people have played it, the overall community thinks they're fun games, but miss the mark in terms of pushing the series to its potential on a console. IGN is completely dismissive of the cons and only lists the pros even going so far as to say they played every game and are the best games in the series.

  • M. José

    Indeed the wild area with the new encounter mechanics and raid battles were a nice addition but the bad graphics, small pokedex and reused animations are unforgivable mistakes when it's about one of the most profitable franchises in gaming. This game could have been the best pokemon game to date easily if the developers weren't so lazy, because the problem is obviously not a small budget.

    I'm enjoying the game but have to say about disappointed with the lack of detail in the game was completely taken back by the lack of voice acting in the cut scenes was just weird watching mouths move but having no sound, but mostly disappointed with the size of the area I was expecting something at least 2 times the size especially the wild area

    • Daniel328
      Daniel328 8 days ago

      Don't forget the unnatural movement of NPCs, awful textures, frame drops in the wild area, odd animations such as the way they interact with the environment. Almost forgot to mention the NPCs stop when climbing a ladder and they left a mouse in the credits exposing that it was actually a recording and not rendered footage.

  • Shane Michael Michael

    People hate this game for no reason maybe actually try playing it before complaining about No National Dex. Gameplay is always more important than graphics so if you really care about what a “tail whip” looks like and that changes ur opinion on the game maybe it’s just not for you considering it’s been on handheld consoles until the 2 new games

    • Daniel328
      Daniel328 8 days ago

      Mario Odyssey. I keep overlooking that game cuz I play Zelda, but that game looks amazing especially Luigi's Mansion 3.

    • Daniel328
      Daniel328 8 days ago +1

      Handheld is excusable. This is a console that handles games like Warframe, Breath of The Wild, Dragon Quest 11, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 and more. There's absolutely no reason why this game should underperform the way it does in 2019. The company needs to give their games more polish and time instead of rushing it out asap.

      It sounds very bias and this person completely becomes dismissive of the flaws the game has which is not something you should do if they're right in front of you. A game like this could very well easily be a 3DS game if it wanted to and no-one would even notice. Nowhere is it in the league's of Odyssey and Breath of The Wild, games that push the Switch to its hardware and widely considered the highest rating games. Something Pokémon isn't quite there yet and there's no denying this. Not hating, It's criticizing the game for its issues and acknowledging the series could improve if given more polish.
      TL:DR - Pokémon Company should have given these games more polish before putting them out so they're up to standard for console release.
