You guys really think everyone's asking for story spoilers and puzzle spoilers and such?
Missing the point real hard here.

No, I'm counting new Pokemon as something that's more fun to discover on your own


Which is why I didn't mention it.
I referred to new features, unique gameplay elements, and interesting town layouts and different environments.

Holy f***, a hype downer killed the hype which no one denied. More at 11.
That any reasonable person knew was going to come eventually, specifically after sun and moon didn't have the Dex part of the national dex


That doesn't make the point less valid, but let's break down why this is bunk.

They made 5 games previously incompatible with current games compatible, handed out distributions like candy for the last 3 years, just advertised a transfer service to SS from the current games including the previous incompatible ones not even a week before the announcement was made. They made no mention of the transfer restrictions then, wonder why....

Yeah, who would have EVER thought THESE games would have been the cutoff point.🤔

I know you're being contrary, but get real, this was the absolute worst way this could have been communicated. Gamefreak deserves this backlash.

Yeah, I'm definitely less hyped for these games than I was for previous new generations. As someone mentioned, the Dexit situation has a lot to do with it.

Overall, it's starting to make me question if I should continue supporting this series going forward.


Same. The day this was mentioned was the very last day I even picked up a game or brought a tcg pack for the kids tbh.

What would they promote? The decreasingly low number of new pokemon? All the features they are removing? The 3d world that while not horrible on it's own, pales in comparison to nearly everything else on the switch?

1) Where did you do that
2) Even if you had, the Pokemon reveals are the only thing they've shown substantially less of than the past couple generations, so your point is moot

If you're talking about the VC release of gen 1 and 2, that's either 2 or 6 games, depending on how you count. Where is that 5 coming from?
Also, there shouldn't ever be a cutoff point because there is no need for it and everything against it.

Them announcing it clearly 5 months in advance is the worst way they could have communicated it?

The hype is certainly less but if it turns out that's just because they're hiding more, that's fine with me. I'd rather have more to discover in-game.

You honestly wouldn't think the games are out in, what, 10 weeks?

There's always the chance their game is so barebones they have to push back the release date. ...Who knows, maybe they're revealing less stuff because they're preparing to undo Dexit.

I honestly don't care about Dexit personally (I tend to be more hyped for new Pokémon than returning ones... the returning ones just eat up space that should belong to new stuff; honestly, I would much rather have 150 new Pokémon and 200 old ones than 300 old ones and 50 new), but I can see why people would be attached to their old Pokémon.
...I became a Super Robot Wars fangirl without playing the games. Bite me.
