I feel like this need a little bit more expanding on.
I’m still of the mind set that I have no problem with game-freak being more selective with the designs (there are a lot of stinkers).
But you have to understand why people are angry, and why they have a right to be angry. A lot of people who love there old Pokemon pay into a service called Pokemon bank. This service was created with the idea that you will be able to bring your Pokemon you to every generation.
To them, game-freak has not delivered on what they were PAYING for.
Three camps have been formed.
- Don’t want to be overwhelmed by the numbers.
- They want the pokedex to be more refined (get rid lazy designs).
- They want all of the monsters they grew up with.
Here is something important, It’s OK to feel angry.
You have a reason to be angry if you pay for this service, however, you need to understand that far as group 1/2 are concerned there is no issue with this decision. Group 2 will only get mad if they find out that the numbers are too low or the choices are really dumb (these were the people that don’t like the ‘let’s go’, this is because numbers are small and power balancing is bad).
Do I think game-freak is lazy? no. I just think there really bad at learning from past experiments…also really bad at telling people what is in there game.
It was announced that this game isn’t going to have a national dex (many people are upset).
I want to bring up a BIG point here: most Pokemon in a generation are just filler, you don’t use them and you don’t remember them.
Awhile ago I looked at every generation designs and organised them into 3 categorise.
Good = you remember them.
kind of = Forgettable
Bad = you remember them for the wrong reasons.
*This dons’t include Maga or Alolan forms.*
I did end up missing the odd Pokemon, but that is to be expected when your having to look at so many designs (missing 7).
The odds of a Pokemon that you like being in the game is a lot higher then you would like to think.
I would also like to bring this point up:
male/ female = 1404
(no gender) = 105
shiny = 1509
I just wanted to give this entire situation a little more perceptive.
