I wonder how another game by Iwao (USUM director) would be like

I think it's just the jump to 3D, 6 years post XY launch and they are still having trouble.


This, partially. IMO it was the desire to keep up with the modern graphics that "took Pokémon downhill" as some would say (I fully disagree with that statement, by the way).

They perfected their work with sprites by gen 3 and that was satisfactory till gen 6, when the jump to the 3DS required games that could be comparable to other games in the system. At this point they needed to make their games 3D, but for that they needed to make sacrifices, like the frontier, extra areas to explore in the post game, triple and rotation battles and now, finally, Pokémon themselves.

That's why my hope is that now that the game has less monsters in its code that they could return with all these other features they had to remove for "better graphics".

Although we'll probably get another "multiple Lillies for every cutscene" situation again, I'm sure.

I don't know how to tell you this, but they haven't

Masuda should stick to the music side, he does fantastic work in that department. When he's in the big boy chair things go bad.

BW2 was directed by Takao Unno. XY and LGPE were directed by Masuda. ORAS and SM and SS are directed by Ohmori (Masuda's successor)
Are you detecting a pattern yet?
Yeah Ohmori made the best games on the list.

Yes, but actually no.

B/W 2 did have a different director, but it was a "third version". Masuda was still in charge of all the "first versions". He was in charge of B/W and X/Y. Sun/Moon were the first post-Tajiri first versions to not be directed by Masuda.

Yeah, I think Ohmori gets too much flack for what Masuda does. Masuda is a complete hack who needs to go away from Pokemon.

What's wrong with Masuda?

This topic makes me wonder how amazing a Pokemon game will be if it was made by both Morimoto and Unno, without Masuda, Turner, and Ohmori being anywhere close to the game (other than Masuda for the musics, maybe)
