My problem is that it's not very different from S/M, and I'm not sure if it was worth my $40 yet. I feel there's something missing, maybe it's because I had my hypes too high.
Totally agreed. Same with Lana's trial. Mallow's was shortened and took away all the exploration, as you mentioned. Then Lana, instead of being funny and quirky and trying to pull a trick on you is just like "Hi. This is my trial. Here's Lapras. Go defeat the wild Pokemon and the Totem will appear for battle. See you soon."Mallow's trail. Like... was that supposed to be an improvement somehow? The one in SuMo was more fun imo, using Stoutland to explore the area yourself. Now Mallow literally takes you everywhere and all you have to do is pick a bush/tree. That was extremely underwhelming. Though I kinda liked the Sudowoodo part which was more of a puzzle, the rest looked like pure guesswork.
Still forever disappointed they didn't do more with the trials, and then this happens when they have an actual chance to improve it -_-
So fucking true. I loved the Rotom changes for the first couple hours, but it quickly got very annoying. Reminds me of Fi in Zelda: Skyward Sword.Rotomdex. Will not. Shut up.
Yeah I know my pokemon need healing why do you think I'm going to the pokemon center? Give me a minute I'm not wasting a potion when the center is literally right there. I don't need hints I didn't ask for. Ugh why do you look sad again. UGH. Also you've asked to call me Roto-L twice now. Pick a different nickname or let me give myself one.
Cut dialogues popping up by like 70% and it'd be tolerable.
Indeed it is, assuming you have the knack for it. But if you struggle and subsequently only get 2 BP per surf, then it can come across as a bit tedious.Personally, I was surprised with how generous it is. It's far more generous with BP than any facility up to Gen 6/7. I've been getting like 9 BP for every Surf. More than enough imo.
Well, the plot is, as a whole, less focused on Lillie’s journey this time, so it makes sense that the credits wouldn’t have the same reminiscent tone.God they even half-assed the credits a bit with just little dancing totem pokemon. No emotional pictures like the first game, like lillie holding evolved nebby before she lets you capture it.
It was still about lillie's journey. Everything is the exact same on developing her character. The only changes they made in regards to that was going to get the flute with you, and alter scenes.Well, the plot is, as a whole, less focused on Lillie’s journey this time, so it makes sense that the credits wouldn’t have the same reminiscent tone.
As it stands they’re a cute homage to the Johto games’ credits.
Obviously her development is still part of the story. Hau’s still is too (he even gets more fleshed out this time), as is Gladion’s, and Kukui’s and everyone else’s.Unfortunately, that stuff wasn’t going to change given the kind of game they were making, which is mostly a recycled SM.It was still about lillie's journey.

yeah the inaugural champion thing was fun and cute the first time but having no champion is just....zzzz. it'd've been so easy to just make it someone like Kahili too.That said, I wish Alola actually had a champion TO BEAT. The whole "Alola's first champion" thing is kind of annoying. And if the Champion's chamber is MY chamber, then let me access it when I want to. Let me decorate it how I want to.
Yeah seriously. "Well why didn't you say anything before with third versions" is such an annoying and pointless statement. It's like saying to people who don't like lootcrate stores or dlc "Well why didn't you complain before" it just comes across as fanboyism defending these games from any critism yet they're indifferent to the quality of Pokemon games. The "nostalgia" game they pick up on a game shelf that they play once in awhile yet don't expect great things out of it besides feeding that nostalgia.Almost the same game, before people jump down your throat.
