  • Hello all! The forum staff have introduced a new rule set. We've reduced the number of rules, made trick language easier to understand, and have hopefully simplified the rules to make understanding them easier. Please have a read over the new forum rules here.
  • Hey guys! Have you heard? We now have popup
    Yes, Popups!
    messages for your forum posts. Learn more about it here!
  • Hey everyone, if you hadn't heard, information about Sword and Shield has been leaking. Outside of the designated threads in our Current Events section, please keep all unrevealed Pokemon, names, or any other information in spoiler tags. This policy will be in effect until January 3rd. This is an exciting time for Pokémon fans, enjoy yourselves!
  • Recently, some of our fellow Pokémon fan sites have received legal requests to take down leaked Sword and Shield images. We have not received one of these requests yet, but we are taking some preemptive measures to stay on the safe side. We ask that from now until the games release (November 15th) that you do not post any new leaked images anywhere on the forums.

So? It's not like Game Freak is getting paid for Nintendo's internet subscription.
Fair enough; I was mainly playing Impidimp’s advocate.

Going back to the gonintendo post though, I had guessed about a possibility of Home working back and forth with other side games and Masuda seems to be thinking the same way. I’d be hesitant to even say that Pokémon not in the Galar Dex will be “completely given the shaft until gen 9” because of this, plus the possibility of Sinnoh remakes and maybe even things that completely shake our expectations, like another new region in the same gen.

Never buy a console/handheld device for one game or company alone.

I made that mistake when I bought an Xbox 360 for Banjo-Kazooie: Nuts and Bolts. And I still regret that decision ever since.

Granted, I bought a Switch mostly for Breath of the Wild, but I knew there would be many other games coming out for Switch that I would enjoy. And they did. The Nintendo Switch has come a long way since two years ago and it features one of the biggest and best library of games I've seen on a Nintendo device for a long time. Instead of deciding whether Pokemon Sword/Shield is worth the purchase of a Switch, try looking at its full library and decide based on that.
True. In my case, I wait till there are at least four games that I like before even considering getting that console, with extra points if those games are exclusives.
Speak for yourselves i really only bought a GBA, gba sp, GB micro, DSi, dsi xl , 2ds, 3ds xl and 2ds xl for pokemon games for me the fact fact the 3ds family also has star fox 64 majora mask 3d and ocarina of time 3d or other game on the others are just icing on the cake

that being i have sold my switch and canceled my preorder over this (that and the fact that most of the games i play are other platforms ) and will continue to play the older games on my pokeball 2ds xl for now and see how this plays out.


i think what people are also forgetting is the TPC and/or nintendo maybe driving this "rush" to an extent as the need new merchandise for the franchise such cardsfor the TGC or plush toys etc + the anime needs a new story after a while

They were? That's why they said "in my case" lol.

We've had three year gaps before, though, and they went just fine. TCG reuses old Pokemon with new cards plenty (and even makes original concepts sometimes), and the anime has made entire new settings. It's possible that a higher-up wanted things to happen faster for some reason, but it'd just be an executive decision, not really a need.

Fair enough i do not really play the card game. i just used it as an example. and yes Pokemon was/is for me anyway the only reason to own a nintendo platform


I was only giving very general advice. People can do whatever they like with their money.
True and agreed & that being i was just pointing out for some customers like myself Pokemon was or still only major to own a Nintendo system.
