    Isabelle deserved it more than Incineroar so I can say I'm quite happy.

    Why would Incineroar deserve it?

    Who else from Gen VII should be in Smash? Decidueye is already in a fighting game, Primarina would look weird in Smash, Mimikyu and Bewear are assists, etc. Only Incineroar looks like it would fit there.

    That would be a pretty interesting choice for Smash.

    Well, what else are we going to talk about, then?

    Besides, you know, repeatedly stating how fake that whale art is.

    Pokemon Switch might use the same graphic engine of GF's new IP "Town"

    I have no issues with the art style but I hope the icons don’t look like that. The icons remind me of freemium mobile games.

    Please no.

    Thankfully I don't see that happening. I think that Pokemon Switch will be a progression from the Generation VII style, which was already a significant step up from the chibi, 2.5D style of Generation VI.

    I tolerated Generation VI's style in Generation VI. But that has no place on the Switch.

    I prefer the non-chibi style for Pokemon, it just seems weird to me that the game would change art styles in the middle, like chibi changing to more realistic proportions whenever battles are initiated.

    At this point, it’s probably both.

    Anyone who thinks this game isn’t going to sell like hot cakes needs a reality check imo.

    Well, a girl can dream. But it's very hard for me to have faith in other people in the last couple of years. At least this time it's just a video game and not an election.

    It obviously isn’t going to flop as many are hoping for, but I doubt it’ll bring in the amount of sales that Nintendo and Game Freak hope it will. I don’t even expect it to reach up to USUM sales.

    It’s casual appeal can be compared to the Wii, which sold a LOT due to the uncanny popularity among the casual fanbase.
    Pokemon is a household name and LGPE capitalises on the most popular and appealing aspects of Pokemon, not to mention it adopts aspects from Pokemon go which recently garnered attention for the franchise even among people who weren’t interested in it.

    I don’t think they can really count on the GO audience as a whole though. The reason it does well is because of the F2P aspect and the micro transactions that net it a lot of cash. I doubt that the majority of them will shell-out $300+ for an experience that they already have for a cheaper cost.

    I do see your point though. I liked your Wii comparison. (y)

    For the Generation VIII art style, I think it should be HD 3D models that are consistent between battles and the overworld, with fully animated faces, not the ones that change textures. No outlines. While outlines may give it an anime aesthetic, the character design could do it themselves. And if they can get voice actors from the anime to make voice acting accompany the text boxes and to help with the lip sync, that'll be great. But considering the player's custom name, it will be awkward to do. Nicknamed Pokémon can be called by their species, but the player?

    Eh, the voice acting for the dub is absolutely terrible imo.

    If there’s going to be voice acting i’d rather not have the voice actors from the anime.
