I just want to see something interesting. That is all I ask. I don't care when.
I personally want a lot to be revealed ahead of time, I feel like SM had the perfect amount of stuff shown before the release. A lot of the game being shown never ruins the game for me, it just gets me hyped for the experience I get to have while playing it. The only thing I refrain from wanting to see is a straight-up walkthrough of the game before I play it (or big climactic events), but anything else i'm fine with.
At least in my opinion, it shouldn't be about frequency or amount of information, but rather how they present said information to us. TPC generally loves to drop surprise trailers on us, but I don't think that's the best marketing strategy; neither is them spoiling nearly the whole game or complete radio silence for awhile. In fact, I have a couple of suggestions/ideas about this:PATIENCE is an ultimate key here.
I know our patiences will be rewarding soon.. My advices are just distract ourselves from this game for a while and stop thinking and feeling disappointed about a lack of news that we got. Like, you know, this game will be released in late 2019 for sure. Don't need to worry.
We have to accept that this game lacks of news. Unlike previous game, which provides promising new informations every month (Especially pre-XY and ORAS era)
- In additon to spacing out the trailers (which they seem to be doing thus far), start listing a date at the end of each trailer for when more news will drop. This keeps the fandom from getting too impatient to the point they begin to lose interest if there isn't going to be any news for awhile. If they still want to keep it somewhat of a surprise, have the end of the trailer list a month or a range of months instead of listing the exact date.
- Do something similar to the riddler; give us some sort of indication about the game, but be vague enough that it drums up speculation. Basically, give the fandom a puzzle to attempt to solve so the hype for SwSh is kept alive.
- Limit the number of Pokémon revealed to two per trailer unless you wish to show off the signature Pokémon of an important character.
