>>323925986 >Outclasses Pokemon in almost every regard >Almost
I sure hope that, by almost, you actually mean you acknowledge 70% of Yokai Watch's monster designs to be awful as fuck. I mean, Pokemon has its share of bad monster designs too, but geez, Yokai Watch's is a whole entire league of awful, my god.
XY was okay, but it wasn't exactly impressive either. It was okay for a game with graphics Game Freak wasn't exactly used to handling, specially given how terrible Game Freak is handling programming and trying to figure out the 3DS's architecture.
ORAS, however, was pretty damn unforgivable. They didn't only alienate the XY users from recent Mega Evolutions, they barely improved SHIT from the previous entries, if at all.
>>323924748 Its a children's game. Actually its a remake of a children's game to bring everything up to date for kids, since kids don't give a shit about the past. Never understood why people would expect so much new shit or harder difficulty in a simple remake for kids
I know that and I do enjoy some of Yokai Watch's designs to a extent, but some of the monster designs are just so infantile, it almost feels like they're mocking their... Whatever their audience is, honestly. Some of them are downright toilet humor.
One thing I disliked about XY is how after the 3rd gym it felt like you just rushed through the game. You'd go through a route, reach a town, beat. a gym and continue, with some Flare intermissions. Before that, the pacing felt a lot nicer. There were bigger gaps between the gyms and each route had more Pokemon to encounter. It made the journey feel bigger and grander, but after the 3rd gym it just went by too fast.
What the fuck is wrong with you? They literally exceed in every single category a Pokemon game should succeed in filling. They are objectively, from a story, gameplay and visual aspect, the most impressive Pokemon games.
>>323931559 It might have been a hardware issue, I don't know.
>>323931570 >removes a bunch of shit from previous installments that most examples are in the OP >getting mega latias/latios not even before the end of the game which they can fly you everywhere after watching the shitty cutscene >no pokeblock minigame
>>323932302 >Sapphire was my favorite game >then i'll point out i hate this game because it doesn't take from EMERALD Be precise then, you stupid fuck. "Most examples in the OP", the idiotic mishmash is half truth, half exaggeration and the rest is straight out lies.
>>323924748 Pokemon hasn't gotten worse, it just hasn't evolved much. The games themselves have always been very basic, the main reason people play them is for the multiplayer aspects. And they're no denying that the multiplayer features in gen 6 are the best yet. The singleplayer is worse, although there are plenty of better games out there if you want a single-player experience.
>gen 6 >being worse than gens without the phys/special split The only exception is Diamond and Pearl and only because it's slow as molasses and even then they're better games than broken ass gen 1. >anything being worse than gen 1 Jesus Christ /v/.
>>323932617 Holy fuck, I've already explained myself and directed you to the OP image. How can you half truth-half exaggerate missing features from previous installments? Can I not be appreciative of extra content? Are you that much of an illiterate retard that you can't understand jack shit? Again, fuck off.
>>323933169 You're the illiterate that can't write "Emerald" instead of Sapphire. Not me. And stop acting like i said everything was a lie. I specified HALF TRUTHS for a reason.
Learn to fucking read and think before posting. Some people want to talk about only specific parts of discussions, sometimes. "A building fell and a cow ate grass", if i want to only talk about the building when i respond i don't mention the fucking cow.
>>323933627 And I still enjoyed it a lot more than DP or XY. I'm not ranking what I want to play right now. When people ask me what gens I like best I'm always going to answer based on how much I enjoyed them when they came out. What's surprising about that?
>>323934113 There's no problem with that unless you try to argue what you're basing your opinion on is objective at all. Of course a children's game would be more enjoyable to you when you were younger.
>>323935324 I don't though. And not really. It was certainly a lot more immersive and more of my life revolved around it. But gen 1 is probably my second least favorite, only falling behind 4 because Platinum and HGSS exist. DP were atrocious. Gen 5 is my favorite by far and I was well into adulthood by the time they came out.
>>323927965 but that's the thing anon. Even with shit designs, graphics/optimization-wise YW shits all over on Pokemon since their models uses less polygons. Lag with 3D is exceedingly rare and doesn't dip in framerates.
Why the HELL are these problems? These things have ALWAYS been pointlessly annoying and unfun. Did you actually fucking enjoy being screwed over repeatedly until the game deins to give you a break?
Oh and GOOD FUCKING LUCK USING THE DEX NAV in the Safari Zone because you're restricted by steps and the Pokemon you find will likely fucking run away anyway.
Nobody ever actually used the game corner to get anything, either. Everyone just fucking bought the fucking coins themselves. At best it was just a tedious distraction.
Also Berry Blending and Pokeblock making was pointlessly frustrating. You'd have to amass the collection of the right amount of berries HOPE you can get enough friends to do it with you because the in game helpers suck and then you blow it all on Pokeblocks that are subpar anyway because what is hand eye coordination and HOPE they're good enough to get you a Feebas.
Fucking GOD. I don't understand why the Pokemon fandom has such nostalgia for fucking terrible systems JUST BECAUSE they existed in previous games. They were BAD. They were tedious. They WERE NOT FUN.
>>323942749 >Nobody ever actually used the game corner to get anything, either. Everyone just fucking bought the fucking coins themselves. And people will still swear up and down that the ridiculous grind that was the voltorb flip replacement was good because "at least we got SOMETHING!". Get that shit out of here.
HGSS's safari zone was disgusting too. 100 days to get certain pokémon. For absolutely no fucking reason.
>>323942513 >this picture I don't know if i should shit on it or agree with it. Especially how it says "did not show these fundamental design issues" when the opposite is true. And like, it complains about the map when you have a proper fucking map on the touch screen at all fucking times. It's a disaster.
>>323924748 They are actually doing better and better, but X and Y happened, which was a couple of steps back. I was optimistic about ORAS, but I wish I wasn't. I really hope this wasn't the start of a trend, B/W2 were absolutely fantastic.
>>323944962 What does that even mean? If it was great, it can't be the lack of quality that killed it. Lack of interest? Doubt it, because the hype of gen 6 was one of the biggest ever, and mostly everyone was on board, so interest in pokémon was obviously still alive and well.
>>323945221 >>323946047 Breddy good other than designs. Gen 2's fit right at home with gen 1's (most of them having been designed at the same time), while I thought gen 4 had some of the most atrocious looking mons ever.
>>323924748 Hoenn as a whole just ruins everything it touches. R/S are the worst games, and their remakes aren't far behind. Really gives you the feeling they phoned the remakes in because of all the "i got ruby when i was 4" kids whining about remakes
>>323942749 Safari zone was always horseshit, especially now that you can find shinies in the safari zone. Imagine keeping your master ball all game long in case you find a shiny, and then you run into a shiny SAFARI ZONE BELDUM. Have fun with that catch rate, which is on par with Mewtwo in how low it is
The Game Corner should just be a minigame corner. Germany bitching about gambling? Fuck them, make it an arcade. I don't care if you just put Pokemon Pinball in there and call it a day, it's better than throwing a sign up that says "gg"
You just want the prizes? Then make the obtainable other ways.
>>323924748 Yes, what's sad is that there are people who honestly want Pokemon Z to happen. No amount of 'fixing' will fix what X/Y and OR/AS have done to Pokemon. Our only hope is they quickly move onto Gen7 and make solid titles like they did during the Platinum through B2/W2 years.
>>323952008 Just bulk and resistance to Normal which was a really cancerous type back then believe it or not. And still, they usually carried Blizzard which had a 90% accuracy back then. I say Rock but it was pretty much just Rhydon and Golem. There was pretty much no way to deal with psychics except for your own psychics.
I think X/Y are fantastic, some of the best in the series. ORAS was lazy though. It was minimal effort. It was good because RSE were good, but they did very little to improve ORAS from the originals while FRLG and HGSS pushed themselves much harder.
>>323952837 OP's image is mostly nitpicky shit. Megas and the type chart changes were the most damaging things done to the series. Everything else is the usual add feature, remove feature shit they always do because Gamefreak.
>>323924748 I'd say they're just stagnating, but they sure aren't getting better. Pokemon is Nintendo's COD. They just release a game yearly that's more or less the same but with a different coat of paint, and pokemon fanboys jump all over it simply because the name has 'Pokemon' in it. Frankly i'm pretty surprised that people defend all of the remakes and whatnot, it's a pretty obvious cash grab.
>>323955057 I thought it was because of the Game Boy hate to accommodate translating their details.
>realistic There's that word again. Can we stop using it as a quantifier of a design's quality regardless of which gen it favors? We're talking about a series where a sea mine with a face can gas an electric fairy hamster to death.
>>323958738 >Customization isn't in Hoenn, fashion is what Kalos is known for, and it doesn't fit in Hoenn >and yet the fucking copy-pasted Battle Maison is A-OK despite being out of place
The entire company doesn't know what it's doing. Who the fuck decided the rules for VGC 2016 were a good idea? They're letting people use legendaries that are normally banned. I'm sure there's nothing wrong with seeing a M-Rayquaza/Xerneas on the same team.
Funfact, M-Rayquaza's ability? It gives TWO of the cancerous genies no weakness
