How would you save the pokemon videogames?
>shitting on pokemon designs
a reminder to get a load of this
There's a difference between talking about pokemon and talking about pokemon games, they're videogames, shouldn't you go fuck with the dozens of thread comparing dick sizes and arguing over waifus that are ACTUALLY not about games?
>More Gen 1 pandering
Trust me anon, Fire Emblem was just Nintendo's testing ground for Gen 7 pokemon. Now that they've seen what they can do with a dead franchise with these 3 simple dotpoints, expect them to fully implement it in a cashcow like pokemon next generation.
No there's nothing wrong talking about Pokémon on /v/. That doesn't change the fact that this thread has been made over three times today and is turning into a general at this point. That was the whole point /vp/ was made. Go fuck off and continue this discussion there.
Writing it Yokai is the same shit as making äöü into aou when writing german words. The point is that's a long o, which you need to make clear when writing romaji, either by writing it ou or ō.
recycle gen 1 ad nauseum with a progressively worse art style
The game is "Pocket Monsters." not Pocket Animals. what I really want is something like this. when they looked creepy.
If it were up to me I'd go back to sprites, remove megas and re-hire the guy who did the rest of the OST. Next games should keep features from the previous (secret bases and stuff), and be more difficult. Reverting the EXP share to it's old fuctions would help a lot too.
Hot opinions I know
I jsut got here and this is the first thread I'm seeing, you don't get to dictate what's on /v/ just because you browse it 16 hours a day.
Have you ever considered you might be the one with a problem?
By forcing GameFreak to put effort in the games again like they did BW2, for instance.
I've come on /v/ at 3 separate times in the last 4 hours for 10 odd minutes each time. The same thread with the same exact posts keep getting spammed. Even the same images that were posted 15 minutes ago are being posted again. There's an entire board where you can complain about all the designs you want, so fuck off.
Anon, I'm claiming the problem isn't one if it only affects you.
You literally just said, its been on 3 times today, right?
So let me direct you again to my original reply.
How many Dragon's dogma, 3DS, or Steam games have been on today? Or for that matter, how many are on Right now?
You're a hypocrite, and you seem to have a bit of a temper issue since you're aversive to other people actually having a discussion or being entertained.
But might I remind you, that you crying and being a generally unpleasant person is just as detrimental?

There you go
remember when being legendary meant being a rare mysterious bird?

Dragon's Dogma, 3DS and Steam games don't have their own fucking board though. Not to mention that people are actually talking about playing games in those threads whereas this one is just shitflinging over the same images and posts.
>"WHY DO THE MONSTERS IN THIS MONSTER GAME LOOK LIKE MONSTERS??!?!?"
>Not that guy btw
>Completely ignores that fact and treats me like that guy because he can't believe that other people find his idiotic comment laughably retarded.
Whenever someone criticises the design of the newer Pokémon people get offended and snap back by insulting Magnemite and Magneton for being "lazy".
I like them... :(
the mega evolution gimmick was so poorly implemented that it sealed the deal for me. it's gonna be part of the franchise from now on and there's nothing that can be done to salvage it
I'm done with pokemon
Fucking terrible comparison. Nice cherrypicking.
You could easily compare shitty Gen1 pokes like Mr. Mime, Geodude, boring ass Diglett, Lickitung, and Jynx to better later gen pokes like Salamence, Luxray, Volcarona, Flygon, Camerupt, Empoleon, etc.
>inb4 b-b-but edgy designs don't count!!11!1!!!11!
I like it. It's becoming absurdly casualized anyway.
>>Mega become part of the evolution line
Yes, with a slight nerf.
>>after a certain level, a Pokemon is able to breed
>>every generation gets more status points
Interesting. Would be fun.
>>after 3 iterations the Pokemon becomes shiny
>>remove shitmoves like sand attack or agility
>>raise number of moves from 4 to 6
>legendaries went from rare animals to actual legends
Where is the problem?
Since it's impossible to talk about pokken in pokken threads, how do you feel about the game so far?
>have some pretty decent threads about Pokken
>rosterfags and "omg ice cream Pokémon psml xD" faggots ruin the threads
>now they keep spamming this thread
Fuck off already. At least make threads about Pokken rather than the same fucking Facebook tier thread again and again.
What??? A horse AND a zebra???? How awful!
How dare that hermit crab with a chunk of earth on its back slightly resemble that cicada nymph with a parasitic mushroom!!
You can't have more than one jellyfish! Everyone knows there has never been any more than one species of jellyfish!
BATS!?!? BIRDS?!?! TADPOLES!?!? DOGS?!?! ROCKS?!?!
How can gen5 fans live withthemselves
>How would you save the pokemon videogames?
Make one big in-depth game every 5 years, instead of a content expansion on a yearly schedule.
The powercreep eventually takes place when you're reiterating the same shit over and over again.
Now we got megaevos, the new cool thing you absolutely need to use because it's powercreep shit to the maximum. Rayquaza is even a case of powercreep into powercreep, since he can hold an item being a mega.
Shit is escalating to DBZ levels. Pokemon needs a hard reset, or it will turn into Dragon Ball Super and be a hard thing to swallow even for the drones, who will commit suicide at this point.
You're welcome. Good to know that there are some non retards on /v/.
What the fuck is even the point if all they're doing is shilling the same damn Pokemon? No Snorlax? No Dusknoir? No Golurk?
Even that fan made 2D fighter had a little more variety than this.
>Dragon's Dogma, 3DS and Steam games don't have their own fucking board though.
Might I also remind you that viewing a thread is optional and not mandatory, so is replying in it, you're welcome to hide this one or even start your own.
>Not that guy
>remove EV and IV
That takes away all individuality of each poke for casuals, also it would casualize an incredibly easy series even FURTHER
>Mega is a normal evolution
Not bad desu, wouldn't mind
>More status points
Wtf do you mean?
>After 3 iterations the Poke becomes shiny
Shinies are already way too common because of hacking, breeding, and the chaining thing. They shouldn't be more common
No, we need shitty filler moves to make good moves rare, besides moves like sand-attack and agility can actually be really good if used coreectly
>Raise # of moves
Again that completely destroys the integrity of the game and would make it so that every poke can cover all their weaknesses, making main story way too easy
>legendary and mythical creatures are now have backstories like actual legends and myths
Well golly fucking gee
>people still think inanimate object Pokemon are bad
They're called Pocket Monsters, not Pocket Animals.
They're no fun allowed faggots, pay no mind to them.
~OFFICIAL TIER LIST~
Masterpiece tier -
Excellent Tier -
Good Tier -
Okay Tier -
Literal Shit Tier -
I hope they also add Bisharp to Pokken.
>the generation with the single most AND most impactful changes made to the serie to date, and on top of that, the biggest amount of bugfixing from one gen to another
You can easily spot those who did not play the games on release and so have no idea how much of a quality jump gen 2 had been. It puts every single other gen to shame and makes them look like lazy cashgrabs.
Kill yourselves newfags. YOU are the reason gamefreaks is lazy.
>Get rid of mega evolutions because they're lazy excuses to not give pokemon proper evolutions, and only limit variety in team building
>Get rid of story focus/plot elements.
>Make the routes/caves more...dungeony? More things like the old Victory Road. Make them marathons where you're actually in danger of losing team members and running out of moves if you don't manage them well
>Do the same with gyms. More puzzles and traps and trainers. More like what B/W2 did
>Larger emphasis on Double/Triple battles. Balance the game more around those battle types
>Proper post game, with tons of unique events and challenges. Like, combine Emerald and B/W2's postgame stuff
>Decent progression scaling. Balance the gym leaders around having an edge in levels
>Make your rival an actual fucking rival
That's what I want, anyway
>Gen 6 fags this fucking salty about people liking Gen 5
>mfw Slurpuff's shiny is crème brulée
Only Pokemon whose shiny I like more than the original, even though the original is still fucking great.
Make mega evolutions actual evoltutions or make mega evolutions for other single stage pokemon instead of giving them to Polemon that didn't need them in the tirst place.
Actually give a fuck like they did with BW/BW2.
That's about it.
Remember when legendaries wouldn't just walk to you and pray to be captured because you were MUH CHOSEN ONE?
Remember when legendaries didn't have the same catch rate as a level 2 rattata?
>the generation with the single most AND most impactful changes made to the serie to date
Would you care to list said changes? Cause so far the biggest implementations I can think of were IVs/EVs and the special split.
"I'm not that person" is an argument, you chose to make yourself a part of the discussion and you picked a side, who you are is irrelevant, and saying "im not that person" is just a pathetic close to a mundane argument.
>Difficulty options like in BW2
>Make the games actually difficult again (ORAS and X/Y are unexcusable in this regard)
>Rebalance Pokemon for the sake of making the metagame better
(It's never going to happen, but I can hope)
>7th gen D/P/PT remakes, because if they get made this generation they're going to be dogshit like ORAS
Are you seriously going to sit here and tell me that the DS isn't objectively the best handheld system with the best library of all time?
So it's official: Gen V is literally the Undertale of the Pokemon Series.
They legally can't. Pokemon is owned by a number of companies. Nintendo, Creatures Inc., The Pokemon Company, and GameFreak. Without all of them present, it's legally impossible to publish a mainline Pokemon game.
It would require a lot of court dates to get a new company on it.
>they had a hard mode in BW2
>they got rid of it because masuda didn't think anyone would beat it
>he also said they didn't bring back the battle frontier or any other postgame content because he though no one would actually use them
It's been like a year since that interview and I'm still rumprustled.
Are you faggots seriously mad you aren't 8 anymore? Pokemon is the best it's been in a long while. The only thing that changed was you. Fuck off.
You'd have to be retarded to play the original GSC over their superior remakes which are rightfully in God tier.
Just making sure newcomers to this new thread realized this unfortunate truth, but looks like it's just the same crop here as before.
>retards in this thread think its cool to hate on gen v because that's what Facebook told them to do when they were 14 but love gen vi despite it lacking in content
Reminder that pokemon is literally dead compared to yokai watch in japan
Am I the only one who liked ORAS better than X and Y?
X/Y threw the whole "Pokemon" feel in the trash, ORAS brought it back with a story that wasn't objectively shit and a region that doesn't feel like it belongs in a GBA romhack.
Not that ORAS was very good, but at least it was better than X and Y
>wanting waifufaggotry, even more casualization, and gen 1 pandering
Kill yourself senpai
>It's another "I hate new pokemon" thread
Can't you idiots whine about anything else?
Honestly, the one thing I really do hate about Gen 5 are the fucking starters. Both design-wise and how fucking bad they are.
Never have I boxed my starter mid game in any Pokemon game ever.
>HE THINKS THE ZYGARDE FORMS COULD BE ANIME ONLY
OG Metroid is straight up shit compared to Zero Mission and Super. Did it start the series? Yes. Was it good for its time? Yep, that's why it started a series in the first place. Did it age like fucking milk? Absolutely.
Same logic applies with Pokémon.
>HE GOT DESTROYED BY THE OU LUGG
No, gen 3 region is shit and will always be shit. Worst variety of monsters and you have no choice but to use them. Gating all 700 or so Pokemon behind some arbitrary unlocking system (usually beating the game) is not a "fun" idea. Atleast XY got this right by letting you catch whatever the fuck you wanted pretty much.
My dad is the reason I exist today but that doesn't mean he's better than me.
>two new types
>babies, eggs, gender, the whole selective beeding concept
>actually different ways to catch pokemon that were not "walk in grass", also the highest number of different ways from one gen to another
>mostly fixed existing engine, and even though it was rewritten in gen 3, gen 2 had very few bugs compared to gen 3
>biggest movepool addition from one gen to another, and biggest "non-straight-damage" interesting moves added as well
>biggest improvement of the pokemon storage to date
>new evolution mechanics that also tie into secondary activities (happiness)
>on the very same gen they introduced held items, they also introduced berry planting, one of the best side-activities that has persisted through the generations
Every gen after gen 2 mostly saw minor changes and polishing, gen 2 has objectively the biggest amount of new features implemented from one gen to another, and those features becoming "core", not just gimmicks that were used and thrown away.
Gen 2 are objectively the games GF has worked the hardest, since counting mechanics and features is not a matter of opinion.
>straight up broken
Last I checked the battle system still works, it just has retard shit balance issues. Which is irrelevant in a single player game where you abuse the same issues.
>The Ford Model T is complete shit because there have been obvious design advancements in history
This is how retarded you sound. I would fucking hope that sequels would fix upon the flaws of the original game, you stupid niggers.
That don't mean it's shit nigga. That means it's lacking the advancements made by sequels.
You're on /v/, faggot. Most of humanity is better than you.
Will Pokemon ever get a well deserved reboot?
They just keep piling up more and more shit on top of everything that existed until now, and leave the same core mechanics that were dated even back in 96.
That's what you do in X and Y too.
>Beat the worst fucking villain team of all time
>Get badge$ and beat E4
At least in ORAS there's some sort of faction theme to it, and the teams don't look and act like complete retards.
I am talking about DS babies. Not talking on the quality of the system itself.
In any case, best handheld library of all time would go to the PSP thanks to its various emulators. If you're talking about original games, probably.
>dying down in Japan
>movie had a much larger audience than Star wars.
/v/ goes through a cycle with things like this.
Everybody hates it at first, usually because it's legitimately shit.
Then you get a group of autists that come along and swear by said thing, parroting their opinions where ever they can.
Then people get bored with their contrarian opinions and go back to hating on said thing.
And so as the games fix issues, they get worse?
>Wow, how dare a Pokemon game follow the same basic formula, they should alienate their fans by completely switiching everything up! That'll make for a fucking great game!
Never mind that the games he's reviewing are fucking SEQUELS too
We postin lists? I've gained a little more appreciation for HGSS after playing the Drayano hack so they could be up in great
Not according to this thread. Look at all these faggots heralding their shit game as the second coming of christ. Gen 6 had some good fucking designs scattered around but holy fuck were the games absolutely boring and shit. Having no post game content in a Pokémon game is absurd. Then XY carried on with that trend. Not to mention that the gen 6 games looked hideous and ran like shit with fps drops out the ass.
Not even him but how many fucking times are you going to say this, faggot?
>dur hur here's le (you) to show I replied but did it """"""""ironically""""""""
In an old interview, the director said that they wanted to reboot the franchise with gen 7.
I wonder if that will be the case. Maybe they will, especially considering Nintendo is now ran by the yakuza.
I'd make more Mystery Dungeon games and release a Mystery Dungeon anime while letting the mainline series take a rest for a little while. Also
>shitting on Mega Absol
A remake of Pokemon Red/Blue/Yellow (mainly because this game might be annoying/time-consuming to implement for any more than 150 pokemon) where instead of giving the pokemon turn-based commands, you actually physically control them in a 3d arena.
You're still restricted to your 4 abilities, you can return them to their pokeballs and switch, and you can still move around as restricted by your pokemon's physical capabilities. For instance, pokemon with low speed stat move slowly, flying pokemon can fly, hitmonlee can jump really high, ghost pokemon can momentarily disappear, double team actually makes fake doubles, etc.
This way, it adds another layer of strategy beyond just type match-ups (yes, yes, I know all about your fun min-maxing shit, you smogon fucks). So even if your opponents' pokemon are really strong, level-wise, with sufficient skill you can still defeat them.
>people still hating on gen V
>using the same "ice cream and trashbag" argument
>still ignoring the very good ones
this shit got stale 4 years ago guys, can't we move on already?
>not appreciating a vital addition to poison types
Guess that's why pokemon branched out into being a world-wide phenomenom.
Youkai Watch is great and all, but it's doomed to be Digimon 2.0 with how people treat it like a POKEMON KILLER when its more akin to a SMT game for kids.
It would be nice. Do we really need 700 mons when at least half is clutter nobody ever uses? And do we really need to stick to 4 moves per pokemon bullshit that was nothing but a gameboy limitation? I'm all for it staying true to turn-based 1v1, but the current system is just tired and shallow.
Did you even read the text on my post retard?
>I've gained a little more appreciation for HGSS after playing the Drayano hack so they could be up in great
heres a picture of lyra to satiate your rage
If your job was to trigger me, then you did your job well.
Check out the newer gameplay. It was getting more refined and started to look more promising until it got shut down.
That was kind of the point of gen V. They tried to remake the whole original pokedex in a new environment.
It's fine though, you fags can keep using it as shitposting material.
> be a snivy

how is this evolution
Remindr that OP is a ponyfag that made a pony-Goodra artwork for that picture and later edited it out.
But Serperior has hands.
Why do people go public with such projects in their early stages? No shit it'll get C&D'd. If you waited till your done and dropped a surprise torrent, Nintendo wouldn't be able to stop it.
Every gen does this
>These modes cannot be unlocked at first, but rather require game completion first.
>play this game for 120 hours so that you can switch to a difficulty you like
Into the trash it goes
They were scared that people would pick that option and lose the game, or something? Literally treating their consumer-base like chimps
Because the arms were useless for it as it grew older and stopped using them. Do you know how evolution works?
What are you, suprised that people don't have like 6 fucking hands because it would be more useful for us?
Vestigial body parts are a part of evolution. Why do we still have an appendix? It's likely that the Serperior line had no need for limbs to save energy, as well as just using vines for everything anyways.
Today even the hack world is all about twitter recognition. If you don't publicly flaunt your project you're worthless.
This is also why all hackers turned moralfags. Since they linked their real life with social media, they would be tracked down and face jail time.
But you see, circlejerking in social media is the more important part to them, so they gave up actually being able to finish their projects.
>Worst variety of monsters and you have no choice but to use them. Gating all 700 or so Pokemon behind some arbitrary unlocking system (usually beating the game) is not a "fun" idea
The whole point of regions is to challenge the player to pick his team out of a certain set of pokemon, not allow him easy access to all 700. I was pretty outraged that you could just up and find a Drifblim and a Gible in wild grass in X/Y. Gibles were insanely fucking hard to get in D/P/Pt and that's really how most strong Pokemon should stay. So I was pretty glad that you could only get basic Pokes out of wild grass in ORAS, but you could also find rarer, stronger ones with the DexNav
was Pokemon ever actually fun though? I think that was his point.
Its a boring, repetitive, turnbased, grindfest where every game plays about the same with slightly different graphics/critters. Its essentially a series of rehashing for children.
Once your mind develops and you acquire a taste for depth and advanced concepts, suddenly you realize how shallow Pokemon really is, and always was.
If you never develop then you will be deemed a manchild who is still fascinated by the same simplicity that fascinates a small child.
That's how real snakes evolved from lizards. Open a fucking book.
>if you never develop then you will be deemed a manchild who is still fascinated by the same simplicity that fascinates a small child.
Nintendo fans in a nutshell.
Gamefreak can release the next generation game with the same engine, same animations, battle system etc and they would still eat it up.
>was Pokemon ever actually fun though?
Yes. just because you can't ind enjoyment in a monster raising RPG doesn't mean everyone else in the world must have the same thought process you do.
The statistics are kind of bunk because kids movie stickets are way cheaper than adult tickets (3.50 or so I heard) and adults aren't going to leave their children in a theatre alone so they have to pay the adult price.
In japan, it's an older audience that likes star wars, and that's not going to be able to compete with popular childrens media.
>Gibles were insanely fucking hard to get in D/P/Pt
Your ass was fucking hard to get. It's 15% chance in DP and 20% in Platinum and XY. You could find Drifblim in the wild since BW.
They need to reboot the entire thing, scrap all the existing pokemon, start anew.
Make it so every single pokemon is relevant, putting more thought into them instead of smearing content all over the place.
Of course, they would never do that because selling 700 types of plushies is more profitable than selling 100.
GF is literally killing the serie for the short term cash. So fuck them.
>Gamefreak can release the next generation game with the same engine, same animations, battle system etc
What do you mean can? The next poke game is still coming out for 3DS and of course it will use the same exact engine and animations. It's like you don't jewfreaks.
Cut down the number on Pokemon to the most popular 200
Make a console RPG with online similar to the Souls series where you can wander into another trainer's campaign and challenge them to a Pokemon battle
Remove almost every legendary
I'm really hoping Oshawott shows up in this game.
Oshawott is best 5th Gen starter.
And coca cola is 100 years old.
Pokemon is already dead in japan, and it's because of the overabundance of shallow raw content versus quality.
The core concept is never gonna get outdated, their careless sequel churning is what's making it shittier by the generation.
Unless you're the guy who thinks gen 6's difficulty was well designed.
It holds its hands behind its back.
>trashing the entire series where EVERY Pokemon has its fans
Why not just make a new franchise? You're asking them to deliberately kill a series that's older than most of /v/ for no fucking reason other than a bunch of shitmons not getting attention for purely marketing purposes. You should work at DC or Marvel with that logic.
Wow. There's bait, and then there's something so genuinely outlandish that you worry they might be serious.
I'd say Clawitzer, but >>324401654 is probably closer.
Well the gen 1 defense force is in full force today.
>only two ghost types
>The only ghost moves were fixed damage
>psychic types overpowered everything
I mean come on guys I know it's the first game and it was a lot of your guys first game, but I dare you to go back and PLAY the first games again. No I don't mean fire red or yellow, I mean the original red and blue.
>gen 6 was shit but it doesn't mean the franchise is going towards shittyness
No, that is literally what it is.
Megaevolutions first, MegaRay then, Zygarde forms later. The powercreep train ain't stopping.
>Oshawott starts off as a cute little otter with aspirations to the Japanese spirit
>his evolution clearly shows an otter training in the form of a samurai, learning how to use his shell effectively in combat
>then the final evolution goes full fucking retard and he goes on all fours and completely undoes every single bit of progress and training he went through
>Pokemon is already dead in japan
Stupidest thing I've heard in this thread, please stop posting.
>/v/ told me that Yokai Watch is more popular than Pokémon
>this is now my headcannon undeniable truth, pokémon is so dying guys did you hear? look at how knowledgeable I am about a country I don't even live in
>Pokemon is already dead in japan
They just opened up a fucking Pokemon Center in Kyoto. you must be high.
>Why not just make a new franchise?
>every pokemon has fans
The atomic bombs had supporters in japan.
Statistically speaking, anything popular will be liked by at least one person no matter what.
Your argument here is completely void.
>You're asking them to deliberately kill a series that's older than most of /v/ for no fucking reason other than a bunch of shitmons not getting attention for purely marketing purposes.
And that is exactly the point. The games are going to the shitter for marketing reasons over gameplay ones. The games need a reset, it's turned into a popularity contest like what happen with the megaevos.
Yeah, but in DPPt you could only find Gibles in one secret area, much like Bagons in RSE. Gamefreak actually wanted to give players a challenge. But in XY, they basically went, "fuck it", and put BOTH of those pokemon in wild grass.
Also the general fact that Kalos had pokemon from EVERY FUCKING REGION really made it so that the region didn't have much identitiy and felt like a romhack. Literally the first route had Zigzagoons and Pidgeys. Why not just Bunnelbys and Fletchlings?
More isn't always better
Mewtwo existed since gen 1.
The are Megas that not only are weaker than other Pokemon but weaker than their base forme themselves.
You don't even fucking know anything about the new Zygardes.
>some video games are more mature than others
Not even that guy, but Chandelure is awesome, fuck you.
It looks like something you'd find off FurAffinity with a list of likes/dislikes, powers, and theme songs from shitty bands like Three Days Grace or Avenged Sevenfold
I'd still fuck it
How many variants of this chart do we need anyway?
>recycle gen 1 ad nauseum with a progressively worse art style
no anon you are the retard
>Mewtwo existed since gen 1.
Let's pit vanilla Mewtwo and MegaRay 1v1, see how that works out for it
>The are Megas that not only are weaker than other Pokemon but weaker than their base forme themselves.
Balance oversight, the design clearly goes towards "more spikes means it's cooler guys!", and most megaevos are stronger in the first place.
>You don't even fucking know anything about the new Zygardes.
Of course I'm only talking design-wise.
Well, at least you have the correct tastes.
You do realize that the 3DS runs nintendo's proprietary GBA emulator and it's emulating those eshop games, right?
You do realize hackers unlocked it to be able to play every single gameboy game as if it were an eshop release, right? It's literally a fucking emulator, and you're paying for roms.
>see how that works out for it
Gen 1 Mewtwo still is the most broken Pokemon in existence while the other 3 Mewtwos are still overpowered compared to any other legend bar Mega Ray, so...
> "more spikes means it's cooler guys!"
You know, it kind of reminds me of evolutions.
>Of course I'm only talking design-wise.
"Snake that becomes a worm, dog and human means powercreep is real". Doesn't have more "powercreep look" than fucking Blaziken.
The Pokemon audience don't want it to be saved.
They've played the same game for 20 years now. They've willingly bought multiple copies of the same experience per generation. Even though they bought both Ruby and Sapphire, they shelled out for Emerald too. They were content to wait 17 years before playing an actual 3D mainline game.
The Pokemon fanbase are the kings of taking it up the back passage and asking for more. These threads are a perfect example.
What if some little kid (the audience the games are directed towards) really like those?
Sorry Billy, we're going to have to remove this because some manchild on a forum said they were shit.
People have been transferring their old teams over to each new generation since Gen 3. They sure as hell would be fucking pissed if Game Freak said:
>Whoops, sorry, but for reasons some autist gaijin said, we're trashing everything and starting over from scratch. Who cares about your favorites, since unless they were the most popular ones because they're our fans' favorites, they were shit on! But hey, look, we're giving you 100 brand new Pokemon that I'm sure you'll love!
>How would you save the pokemon videogames?
by buying braixens game
>"We are teaching children the concept of death and loss, turning them into responsible adults that know the values of the world"
Get mad rep points from the parents who will forget the PETA campaign and buy their children the games
How about, instead of scrapping all the pokes, we just MAKE A FUCKING REGION THAT DOESN'T HAVE 5 MILLION POKEMON FROM OTHER REGIONS!
Everyone complains about too many pokemon but turns around and says that Kalos's wild pokemon variety was great. Fucking how?
Taouros should of been able to be tamed into evolving into buffolant. Im just sayin.
>Everyone complains about too many pokemon but turns around and says that Kalos's wild pokemon variety was great. Fucking how?
Nope. Everyone complains the pokemon balance is shit. It's a different matter entirely.
/v/tards will complain about literally anything.
While the rest of the board is full of nostalgiafags who hate anything new, people here want a complete reboot of one of gaming's definitive series. kek
I heard the reason why they're not adding evolutions to previous Pokemon like in Gen 4 is because too many people bitched about it for some reason.
So mega-evolution what kind of a fill-in to the problem.
>trashed the first pokemon following you
Pikachu? They made it more cutesy than before. Do you actually believe that a slimmer redesign is trashing it? No, trashing something means completely scrapping it and starting over. No more Pikachu, period.
Look at these sweaty manchildren being so attached to their monster-waifus that just the thought of them shelving existing pokemon triggers them.
