I genuinely forgot what a raging boner Pokémon had for Gen 1 nostalgia during XY. These games really struggle to have much of an identity of their own because of the prevalence old Pokémon, limited number of new Pokémon and really uninteresting design of Kalos. Kalos is larger than both Galar and Alola in terms of the areas you actually explore and destinations you visit, plus the region loops back on itself a few times which is also nice, but it sure as hell is bland.
On one hand i'm perfectly fine with Square going unrestrained on reproposing its old catalogue in some fashion, but on the other, Forever Entertainment is notorious for taking a long time in making something and not delivering a 100% quality product, so we'll have to see how this turns out.
I made this status yesterday but why does it seem like every time a series jumps to 3D, its when the fan reception starts becoming split.
Not even just Sonic, this shit has happened to Pokemon as of late and Mario and Zelda as well.
