Angry ostriches would like to have a word with you, you miserable raincoat.
You can pick your battles, and you can pick your nose. But you can't pick your battle's nose.

...I almost want to agree with this.
As incredibly disappointing I find SwSh to be, DP are so extremely slow it's not even funny. Sure, there's more to do, but everything is so damn tedious.
I mean even the slowness aside there really isn't more to do.

Less pokemon to catch
No optional post-game bosses against characters of note
No harder rematches against the Elite 4
No post-game story (the closest you have is Heatran)
No extra post-game side quests
The only battle facility is the battle tower

All you could do is post-game is catch a handful of legendaries, visit the battle zone which in DP was very base, and...yeah that's about it. If we go by the handful of legendaries you could only do regigas if you had the 3 regis transfer so all you had to catch post-game were heatran, giratina, and Cresselia.
I've got a quote that embodies you perfectly, but it's seventy-three posts long, has a few massive flowcharts, and lots of Xion-KMA to Me

Every game has good parts and bad parts. SwSh has a lot of bad parts.... But a few good parts too. I genuinely enjoy camping a lot, and I love how smooth all the models look (ignoring the horrible tree textures and stuff lmao)

It's not the WORST game, but it is far from the best. I don't think I could name a worst game, they're all better than each other in some areas and worse in others.

I wouldn't say RS are the worst pokemon games, but I can't even bring myself to replay them after Emerald. I can't think of a single way Emerald isn't better or equal at.

Hm...
Wally fights you right at the start of the Victory Road rather than at the end. Kinda lessened it for me, especially since you meet the guy hyping him up after you've already battled him. ...I'm really stretching, I know.

I can see the downsides, but the one upside is not having to have a surprise boss fight right before you think you get to heal, so it's kind of a wash.

It's been too long, is Steven a post game boss in Emerald?
