  1. I honestly think the visuals in Sword and Shield are pretty good...outside of the Wild Area.

    1. Spookilator


      Really? Minus some questionable looking trees, I think the Wild Areas look great!

    2. Lord-Dreamerz


      You don't love flat, empty and soulless landscapes? =p

      Heh. Yeah they looked pretty bad currently.

    3. Celestia


      @PerkilatorFwiw it is mostly the trees, and some other structures, that bother me, but yeah.

      And yeah the presumably more specifically constructed routes (and cities) aren't flat or empty at all. It really is like going from the average RPG right into Everything Wrong With Open World Design.

      They look ok... thought that’s with me lowering my expectations for a number of things.

      I shouldn’t have to seeing how this is a multi-billion dollar franchise but, hey, this is just where we are atm I guess.

      Those in-battle animations are still shit tho

    5. Cayenne


      They aren't very good for a console JRPG from 2019 IMO, but, to be fair, giving a good look at Game Freak's portifolio, I don't expect big 3D projects from them. Every 3D Pokémon game before X/Y was made by different companies and most of their original titles are in 2D or just very simple games.

      By the looks of it, Town will be their first big 3D JRPG.

      @Strickerx5 Just look at them dem HIGH quality animations which they clearly put tons of dough & effort into! ;3

    7. Celestia


      I mean yeah my expectations were lower because they've been a handheld dev this entire time, lol.

      They've also said outright that they're focusing more on Town, which is an...interesting choice? On one hand I'm at least glad they aren't being forced to work on solely Pokemon forever and always ala Sonic Team or whatever, but...

    8. Strickerx5


      @Lord-DreamerzThat’s one of the new starts too... just, how

    9. TCB


      Oh wow people remembered Town? It was revealed last September outta nowhere to little fanfare so I expected many to forget. 

      Look how visually appealing this looks. And this is just the reveal trailer. 


    10. Lord-Dreamerz


      @TCB Honestly I never got how Town visually looks great to some people. It is ok I guess... But nothing special far as I can tell. And I really don't think the human characters look good hardly at all personally.

    11. TCB


      Each their own. On its own yeah I can see what you mean, but just comparing it to the other Game Freak RPG you can see some differences can you?

    12. Ferno


      they gotta partner up with Monolithsoft for Gen 9 once work on BotW 2 is done imo

    13. Lord-Dreamerz


      I'm comparing it to other cel-shaded games like OG "Zelda the Wind Waker" or "Ni No Kuni 2" and those looked FAR better to me. I am not aware of Gamefreak's other non-Pokemon projects really.


    14. TCB


      They rarely ever dipped out of the Pokemon pool, so whenever they make something else outside of their bread and butter like Town...compared to SwSh the former is far more visually appealing. 

    15. Ferno


      *sees people on youtube bashing the Town trailer in the comments saying "oh so this boring non-pokemon garbage is where the Gamefreak resources for Gen 8 went?"*

      god forbid they do new and different things to prevent burnout amirite

    16. Celestia


      To be honest I'm not bothered at all about the battle animations? Like, if that's what Masuda was referring to (which I highly doubt--my guess is that it's going to tie in to whatever the Amie / Refresh equivalent is this time around), in the first place I think that's a weird reason to cut Pokemon out of this specific game. I don't expect or even want them, at least with the time they get, to go through every mon and give them multiple attacking animations to account for every kind of move, even with a reduced roster. That'd be cool, but again I personally can't even wrap my head around that being a priority at all for a game that has like hundreds of mons.

      Admittedly nowadays I always turn off the animations anyway, lol. Maybe I'd feel different playing a new one for the first time tho'.

      Can we at least not wash out the Pokemon colors I want my vibrant yellow electric rat in battle
