um....I really applaud game freak on how true to life their games maybe making the most racist pokemon game ever and basing its region on one of the racist country in the world.
again...whatNah im not talking about Nessa Im talking about how racist it is to cut half of the pokemon from getting to the region. Didnt even know about the nessa thing really
I just wanted to say that the thread loaded up with this post and didn't show me the discussions first. So when I saw this, I thought Game Freak released something that showed Nessa was a racist. That would have been a... bold direction for her character, for sure.At this point we degenerated from "Home is the worst thing" to "Nessa is racist". What the hell?
Honestly, if I saw those shoes in a store, I'd buy them. I think they look kind of cool, and I'd want to try how it feels to walk in the (shallow) water on a beach with them, since they have these small floating rings on the sides. Although, yep, she's wearing a bikini, she's probably a swimmer and she uses Water types.Based on looks alone, Nessa's really pretty and feels like a Pokemon character. My only real complaint is that she has those ugly fucking shoes. I've gone about this before, but why is his franchise hellbent on making hideous shoes after ORAS?
As far as my own argument goes, this isn't just about "oh, they cut Pokemon". This is about them having made such cuts in order to make way for "better graphics and gameplay", as they stated, and then they showed up at E3 with model pop-in, sliding and pivoting models, and re-used animations from 2013, 5 months from release. From what they have presented, the cuts they made for the reasons they stated were for nothing. This isn't a blanket issue of "muh pogeys". It's what the cut entails about the rest of the production. This game had sacrifices made just to make it stay on par with the 3DS games from what I have been seeing of these press releases, and now I am expected to pay extra money for it, to which many others are welcome to do, but for me, I say no. This game needed more time, and so do future ones.Yes, I don't think people realize how different delaying a Pokemon game is from delaying something like Animal Crossing, Metroid, or Bayonetta. The TCG is a really big factor to keep in mind too. The first Sword and Shield set will drop in December, as usual, with a new mechanic to shake up the TCG.
The thing about asking for a delay in the future is that GF has actually spent a lot of time on Sword and Shield. LGPE gave them extra time to work on some ambitious features for Sword and Shield. Just because they chose to exclude some Pokemon doesn't mean they need more time for future games. GF even said there was more weighing in on that decision than time and resources. They're thinking about the future too, as it only becomes more difficult to manage and balance a huge number of Pokemon. Unless there's also an issue with polish or a lack of content and interesting features, and Sword and Shield seem like they have both in spades (so far), I personally don't think the argument that future games need more time holds much water.
This leads back to 2 points, that Charizard is actually a good representation for this region as a welsh dragon, and that Charizard will have a new form, just like how Diantha had a Gardevoir, but can turn mega to make up for it not being a new pokemon.I know Charizard is popular and all, but it really needs to take a break.
Leon would probably have mostly Galar pokemon, and most likely the regional pseudo-legendary, but they should have made him show up with something new or no pokemon at all.
I think it's a joke that the Britain-based region being the first region to exclude Pokemon in its game is similar to some of the attitudes some British people express towards foreign people, especially in the wake of Brexit. Xenophobia would've probably been more clear.um....
pokemon are not people....they don't even have races
is this satire I'm not getting?
alternatively maybe this person isn't a first-language english speaker and thinks "racist" means something else?
Yeah, but out of the current selection of dragons, it is the closest to being one. And if Gen 6 is any indication, then the Gigantamax mechanic will be limited to only one of the Gen 8 pokemon while the rest will go to past gens. So out of everything we've got, Charizard does make the most sense. Doesn't really need any more new forms after disproportionately getting two, but it makes the most sense.In a region based on Britain, there should be no shortage of many other dragons to pick from.
Also, this is what a Welsh dragon looks like:
Charizard doesn't exactly scream "Welsh dragon" to me.
