The animation could also be better. I watched an interesting video on YouTube about Eevee's "skeleton" and it's even more simple than the Sword and Shield "skeleton". Why couldn't they just reuse the old one?
Don't know. Maybe they are Spike-Chunsoft's models?

It's kinda hard to realize that this game is less than a month away. I'm currently in the process of going through the game's cutscenes to refresh my memory on its plot a bit before the new plot is fully revealed.

I think they reused the models from Super, some of which were reused from Gates, which were apparently reused from PokéPark...

I hope they don't use the Lapis Cave music in every postgame dungeon in the remake.

I like the idea of having cutscenes with the partner and player but I guess they will have to draw a lot of stuff then since there are so many combinations. It will be fun to watch my Skitty and Cubone interact since I like the contrast between creepy/sad and cute/cheerful.

I hope that Gengar and Gardevoir get some good cutscenes. I feel like their story is more emotional since there were more severe consequences to Gengar's actions even if he gets a chance to redeem himself.

The sad stuff falls flat in the PMD1 post-game since the player comes back so quickly and everything else is basically fine aside from the Gengar/Gardevoir stuff. Compare this to PMD2 where things are still intense in the post-game.

I would argue that the fugitive stuff was actually more emotional than the ending so maybe that is where they should focus on the emotional cutscenes instead.

Or to Super and even Gates, where you have to actively work to get the other team member back during the post-game.

Game's out!

So I've been playing for a short while, and I'm not sure what to think about one particular change.

Generic A attack has been replaced with Struggle, and you start with four moves. This probably means a lot more PP management is going to be a thing in the later dungeons, but as of now, I get the feeling it was meant more as a dumbing down of the original game's combat.

You can switch your leader between you and your partner, which I guess is pretty cool?

Hopefully I'll like some of the new stuff they've added once I get there :whistle:

I guess this can be useful if you know that you're going to do better controlling your partner during a boss fight or to prevent artificial stupidity. Also, yay for not having to wait till the post-game to do this!

My copy just came in the mail today! While I'm sad they got rid of the Friend Areas, I like that they made every area available straight up instead of holding a bunch of them until the post game. They also reuse the old sprites for when you go to said areas as part of a menu. It's kinda cute, actually!

I'm loving some of the QoL changes, like being able to set up your teams and items right before you leave on an exploration.

I want to say they've dumbed some things down, but my team was nearly obliterated in Oddity Cave, so it seems they've made up for it in other aspects. Seeing4-tile large Pokemon spooked me the first time I saw one.

Also, does anyone know if Diglett tunnel in front of the base that leads to the Pelipper office there in the original games, or is it a new addition? I never noticed it if it was :l

I also met a starving Trapinch on Mt Steel, and he joined me when I gave him an apple. It was super cute

I think that's new since you had to go through the town center to go the Pelipper Post Office in the original game.

Okay, I'm giving the remake massive points for one thing: Oddity Cave. Why? IT LETS YOU BEFRIEND PIDGEY AND PONYTA WHO WERE HARD AS SHIT TO BEFRIEND IN THE ORIGINAL GAME!!! In the original, there was only one place you could even hope to befriend a Pidgey in, and even then, it wasn't guaranteed and only on a few select floors! Plus, Ponyta was shafted into Joyous Tower and we all know the 99 floor dungeons that reduce your level are terrible.
