That's what I meant - the designs are becoming less edgy with this installment. ORAS is Sugimori's style at its best. You say that as if I am a genwunner. Lmao, no, I prefer 3ds era games but Legends Arceus and SV make designs more realistic and not as sharp. Did you like sparse,overly detailed trees of Legends Arceus? That game is not bad but environments still don't look too goodI don't think that the design is becoming "less edgy" as time goes on considering how Archie looks in AS and a lot of the character design in SM in general. I think the reason for changing the art style is to show how the franchise is evolving with SV, though I think they did a poor job. You can't have Pokemon without it's iconic art style imo.
