i have the unpopular (positive) opinion that pokemon games are getter better, albeit it is gradual improvement rather than drastic improvement like some people may some to want.

i get it. pokemon games as a whole has stiff competition from other switch games. i suppose one could argue that was the case somewhat in the handheld days, but it wasn't uncommon for people to buy their nintendo handhelds specifically for pokemon. this indicated, to me at least, that pokemon dominated the handheld sphere, while it doesn't so much when it comes to the switch when there's other more playable games that people compare pokemon games to. and like, i understand. i'm not saying, in the slightest, that pokemon games cannot be criticised. there's absolutely a lot Game Freak can improve upon! but i think there's a significant lack of giving credit where credit is due. we're seeing, at this very moment, that yes, Game Freak is at least open to trying something new, if L:A is evident of the such, and even going so far as getting another studio to develop pokemon games (ILCA in the case of bdsp).

basically, i think there's a lot of not noting progress where it happens. no pokemon game is ever going to be perfect. and people are free to spend whatever they feel their $60+ is best spent, but i've been seeing a lot of melodramatic takes about how the series is doomed or other such negativities while not paying attention or not giving credit at all to where the series did make improvements.

Wait, that’s unpopular? Because I’ve been playing since Gen 1 (yeah, I’m old), and I agree with you completely.

you'd be surprised at how much cynicism there is about the general direction pokemon games are going in. u_u

Sincerely, I feel the same. I think nostalgia glasses also have a lot to do with this points at Emerald

...Or maybe it's just that I learned to notice the defects of things I liked as a kid.
