  3. Has this been posted? GF had to redo all the Pokemon models, apparently
https://www.reddit.com/r/pokemon/comments/cb2z26/japanese_interview_from_famitsu_reveals_all_old/

TL;DR - GF couldn't port the models or something, so they had to redo them, in addition to all the Dynamax models.

What do you think?

Smells like BS; why didn't they say this at the beginning? And why are they still so understaffed?

Keep in mind Game Freak only has 143 employees, only half of which are working on Pokemon, the other half on Town.

Nice fake news.

getting close to 20 mil unit sales with each of their releases and they are still understaffed.

Maybe these mofo's shouldn't pocket all the money they been making instead get more employees

I hate to be that kind of guy, but this sounds a bit like damage control.

Like ... as it turns out, one of the main arguments of the critics is actually totally void. All the models are new, they're just virtually indistinguishable from the old ones and GF simply didn't tell us before.

I dunno ... it's just so perfect.

Nice fake news.

Wikipedia: Gamefreak count was 143 in 2018. Team split between Gear Project and team working on Pokémon is official. What is fake there? Also, one of the official interviews confirm that employees are swapped between teams all the time.

Copy/pasting is more useful and helpful.
It save time for developing video games such as Pokémon.

Copy and paste models and create new models for new Pokémon.

Problem solve.

Game Freak has 143 employees, split between Pokemon and original projects (Town)...and they had to recreate every single Pokemon from scratch??

No wonder they couldn't include all 1000 Pokemon or so in the game.

They could've mentioned this in their initial response, but I guess announcing a f***-up isn't a good PR move.

BUT this might be good news. As long as they don't mess up with the model transfers in the future, we could eventually get all the Pokemon back over time.
