The game is pretty much the same since Heartgold. You will probably get burn out from playing this games because there's no postgame content beside shiny hunting and battle tower! Its pretty good game 10/10!

Pros:
  • Cute, feminine and childish gamelay and overall atmosphere (if you are into this)
  • Lots of furry (also if you are into this)
  • Short and very easy story mode that is like a walk in a park (if you like this kind of gameplay)
  • The whole aspect of collecting in this game is a RNG feast, you just are throwing dices for find pokemon, find shiny pokemon, catch pokemon etc so theres no need to use your brain (again if you are nto this)
  • A giant lack of social skills community that will keep you making you forgetting to regret of buying this game by their submissive behavior saying this game is great, that can be good for your ego
  • theres a gimmick were your pokemon becomes taller
Cons:
  • Everything in pros if you are not into that
  • Lack of real content that isnt RNG based
  • Pay for post game DLC, the built in post game is boring ( its just battle tower that is a lot of trash worse than any battle tower up to date )
  • Cutted content (many pokemon are cut, many good aspects in last games were cut, remeber in HGSS pokemon followed you? its gone. Remeber battle frontier? gone also, two big regions and rematching trainers? gone. Secret bases? Gone. Mega evolution a fair superior gimmick you mybe didnt know you needed its also gone )
  • Bad execution of Open world

It's a pretty standard Pokemon game - gameplay hasn't changed much since HG, but Fairy type was introduced in XY and some type matchups have changed (Steel no longer resists ghost and dark for example). There's also a new gimmick this gen called Dynamax where your Pokemon becomes giant for 3 turns and gets access to powerful moves.

My biggest issue pre-purchase was the amount of cut Pokemon, but I've still got 500+ hours out of it even with Dexit

animal crossing and modern pokemon has very similar target audience so probably you'll dont like it
