Let's see how it does first. I hope it has mediocre sales. I honestly doubt they'll keep the catching mechanic given the outcry.

But yeh i dont like this catering to lowest denominator mentality he has these days.

These japanese dev interview are just empty PR promotion half the time. I remember Miyamoto going on about how he thinks about fitness more and more when they had all their Wii Fit stuff coming out - was he really or was it just to support their game.

Next game i bet they'll talk about focusing on the competitive aspects of Pokemon and making sure they arent left out.

Also what we know is that they want to capture the Go audience but not lose their existing one. I'd expect the 2019 game to be more inline with Sun and Moon providing lets go doesnt sell phenominally well (which its not likely to do based on preorders vs sun and moon).

SM already alienated old fans tho, LGPE are just even worse.

So no, going back to SM wouldn't suddenly save this either

Good.
Series could do with a hard reboot.

I agree it could've used a hard reboot but this was the worst possible way they could've gone about it

This is not a reboot

Romhacking their own 3ds games with map editor and citra upscale after stripping off content is only a reboot to unfortunate people living in mental asylum

It's concerning but let's wait and see how next years games turn out.

If they are also dumbed down than it's time to worry.
