Man so a "s*** developer" came up with one of the highest selling franchises of all time? One that continues to perform insanely well? Crazy!

yup, if anything, this proves my point - it's not that game freak is lazy, its that they have no talent.


They're neither lazy nor have no talent.

They might not be the most amazing devs ever, but GF's problem is that they're sitting on a gold mine and exploiting that gold mine requires so little effort.

Seems that way.

Too bad they don’t need to because Pokémon can be literally trash and still sell.
It’d be great if a mainstream Pokémon game bombed and they had to reconsider their efforts.

Agreed. Unfortunately, that's not going to happen. Merely being on the Switch is going to make it sell double of what USUM sold, and they're going to use that to justify all the s*** they're pulling with this game.

Well, the people who actually develop the game do a pretty decent job of it.

The fact that the publishers insists on putting scummy mtx in all their games doesn't change that.

I don't agree that Game Freak is entire garbage, though. At least, in the past they werne't.

Nobody remember stheir non-pokemon titles like Pulseman, Drill Dozer, Tembo, ect.


Tembo was garbage and Pulseman was nothing to write home about

Don't forget ~publisher demands~.

IIRC the B-Team did HGSS, B2W2? and ORAS? though. I'm pretty sure they did HGSS, as I remember hearing that and then waiting for the B-Team's game after BW were so disappointing to me. B2W2 are far and away my most hated games in the series so that didn't work out too good for me .-. But I know a lot of people love B2W2 so

There's also that with those games they'd have more to work off that was already ready from that gen.

Cutting stuff each gen might seem arbitrary, but in retrospect, maybe they do some of it just so they can get a next-gen entry done. They didn't have to do that for the first four gens but they weren't doing two gens per console then and they were working with sprites which they're clearly much, much better at doing.

Two gens per console was a terrible idea, especially since it happened as they were shifting to 3D.
