This was more or less the official trailer to follow up on the teaser that was released a few months back. Even then, it's still too early to judge the games I'd say, but people are free to do as they please.
Based on word of mouth from Mr.Iwao and the GI interview, we know that everything from...
I went from optimistic to pretty ecstatic.
I'm pretty surprised that someone new is directing this time around, I like that there's a lot of things being teased from him, I dig all the changes and and most importantly I like how we know so much yet so little.
It really adds to the mystery of the...
I think the biggest issue is that we're right back where we started.
Dusk Doggo was our first piece of legit USUM news and it generated a lot of speculation despite its mixed reception.
All that speculation went down the drain once it was revealed that it's an event only mon.
Now we're back at...
Platinum was announced May 2008, then released September 2008.
We only had Giratina's Origin Forme. Information didn't come until June, which was 3 months before launch.
B2W2 was announced February 2012, then released June 2012.
We only had Kyurem's Formes. Information didn't come until April...
No matter how we spin-it these are a follow-up to games that we're already familiar with and it's not like this is a new start of a generation. That said they've done this before with games like Emerald and BW2 and those games are hailed in high regard by many.
I know, I'm pointing out that the games have Ultra in them because Solgaleo and Lunala are UB.
Pokémon Emerald and Platinum where described to be essentially the Director's Cut of their respective games.
Here it seems to be different since no third version was hailed as a alternate story ( In...
It's also worth noting that games the third versions were typically marketed as the 究極のバージョン ( Ultimate version) of what ever game they followed up while BW2 was obviously stated to be the series first 続編 ( Sequels).
USUM are being coined as a 互い違い物語 (alternate story) so were probs dealing...
It is worth noting that this was almost several years ago and a multitude of things have occurred that have changed both GF and Nintendo's perspective.
- The YW boom ( 2013-2015) in Japan showed that Pokémon could lose its throne and by extension its fans if they play it too safe.
I'm just saying that they don't own Lvl 5 or YW so it's not like they could tell them what to do anyhow.
They actually own Pokémon however.
Ultimately it doesn't matter though since they're assured to make bank on both the 3ds and Switch now.
YW is third party while Pokémon isn't.
Nintendo owns Creatures, has investment in Game Freak and co-owns the Pokémon brand with them, and the three of them manage and license the brand through equal shares in TPC.
They have the biggest share when it's all said and done.
That's simple, SM was a story driven game that took you where the plot told you, those areas were likely axed because they didn't hold any narrative relevance. Moreover the games can't be compared to its forerunners because they had " excuse plots" whereas SM actually had a...
There's nothing that indicates that SM was rushed other than "fans" touting it for not having or being what they wanted it to.
That and honestly speaking most sequels could've just been updates ( Splatoon 2 being a recent example) but most Companies are going go that route in a day and age...
