  1. I'm genuinely curious. What are your biggest gripes with Pokemon? 

    1. Blacklightning

      There aren't enough Mystery Dungeons.

      Probably recently mega evolutions and z moves. 

      ... and on another note of recalling "the good old days" I would have to say that I miss a more innocent time before I knew or cared about EV training.... 😕 it's really ruined the single player experience for me, because now all I'm thinking of when I catch a Pokemon is "gotta get all the effort values where I want them before I continue onward."

      I'm surprised people bother with effort values during the main game. Natures I understand, but effort values seem like overkill with how overpowered the experience share is already. I worry about effort values, egg moves, and IVs post game, and that's only if the generation's meta is fun. I haven't done a ton of breeding this generation because of how bad the meta is.

      As a casual, it felt like the same shit each time so I kinda just got bored. Well Mystery Dungeon was the same, but had a story I could enjoy.

      Metagame sucked the fun out of it for me

      There are others but that one really comes to my mind

      No games with more than one region after Gen 2 (then again I started with Gen 2 so I got spoiled into feeling like every game should have more than one)

      also a lot of it feeling sanitized and toned down after gen 5, and every character being super friendly at all times, etc

      Also, Gen 3's Battle Frontier was far superior than any attempt that followed in my opinion.

      So many options...

      it's boring. Never got into it as a kid, and when I tried one of the games when I was a little older I just got sick of it really fast.

    11. Red

      Competitive. Pokemon should abolish it altogether. Pokemon has always been a series about "winning with your favourites, using only strong pokemon is shallow" so to have a metagame that is that is the complete opposite of that is kinda bad.

      This is what made Let's Go fun. They got rid of the nonsense and focused on making the game more relaxing to play and less frustrating.

      ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      You can't avoid some Pokemon being better than others. That holds true even for Let's Go.

      Gen1ers or claiming any design past the original 151 is shit when Gen 1 didn't look that great design wise either.

    14. Unidus

      Unidus

      Gen 1 was a mess.

    15. Blacklightning

      Blacklightning

      gen 2 is superior

      fite me

      also they need to finally fix that confusing back and forth when its time for a pokemon to learn a new move

      also also, let me deposit and withdraw pokemons within the same options menu

    18. Crow the BOOLET

      Crow the BOOLET

      @Ferno Ever use the Move option in these games? Its so much better.

      Oh as a side note, remakes of games like FR/LG and Let's Go not having evolutions to Pokemon available to use in any way. Onix, Golbat, and Scyther aren't great until they evolve.

    19. Zaysho

      Introducing and dropping things every generation, damn near annual releases, gating off useful features like move tutors to whatever immediate third version or sequel or alternate telling (since we've got all three accounted for at this point), battle facilities, while a nice idea (and actually give me ideas for teams now and then), are a real slog if you play more casually and you just want to learn new moves or get the useful items (Battle Tree did address this somewhat, but it can be kind of a pain). The last one kind of amuses me because money is fucking worthless in these games by the time you reach the postgame and I think that'd be a better option. I would also like to see more postgame challenges and areas to explore. A second gym challenge, if not a whole new region, would be great.

  2. The monster of the week formula is very specific. Eggman unleashes some new monster that either does his bidding or that he relies on, the monster eventually grows beyond Eggman's control, and Super Sonic has to show up and save the day. The Time Eater fulfills the Super Sonic requirement, but doesn't grow beyond Eggman's control. The Deadly Six grow beyond Eggman's control, but there's no Super Sonic final showdown, and they aren't even the big bad of the game. Eggman is, with a copy-paste boss battle from Sonic Colors. Infinite doesn't require some Super Sonic final showdown and he doesn't grow beyond his control. None of them really fall into that specific formula. Chaos does, Shadow/Biolizard do, Metal Sonic does, and Dark Gaia does. The only real exception to the rule during this era is Black Doom. Sonic '06 is a unique case as well, but only in the sense that Iblis and Mephiles didn't do his bidding, nor were they his underlings. He still sets off the events that eventually lead to the formation of Solaris.
  3. Man, if he's been in charge since Colors, he's been a disappointment and a half. Maybe it's unfair to place all the blame on him, but if he's responsible for the current direction, all I can say is yeah, not a fan. The pushing of all the characters besides Sonic into the background, the simplistic stories, the poor characterization, the lame jokes, all of it has made me yearn for the monster of the week formula that ended with Unleashed, and that wasn't a particularly good direction either. It became stale after a while, but even that is preferable to what we've been getting since Colors.
  4. As more time goes by, the more I appreciate Black 2 and White 2, TBH, especially after Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon. 

  5. There. Beat the World of Light on hard mode.

      Wut. Damn you’re crazy dude why do that to yourself lol???

      ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      Eh, it wasn't that bad. Some frustrating moments to be sure, but nothing I couldn't handle.

  6. Is there a faster way to get the Sonic Boom and Super Sonic Racing tracks in Smash Ultimate? So far I've just been waiting for them to appear in the shop.

  7. While I think the weather abilities are the worst part of Gen 5, I otherwise agree with pretty much everything in this vid.

      I'll just leave this here for when the Sonic nipples are confirmed

      Considering how tiny Sonic's Japanese fanbase is that is just sad. I really don't know what to say.

  10. All I'm saying is you brought this on yourselves by complaining Sonic feels out of place in a realistic setting, lol.

    1. Soniman

      I never said that thanks 

    2. ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      Then I'm not referring to you.

      I didn't decide to make this movie live-action.

      I never said that. And there are clearly better ways to have him fit rather than redesign him like....THAT.

    5. ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      ThePrinceOfSaiyans

      I'm referring to the people who said that. If you didn't say that, then I'm not referring to you.

    6. DanJ86

      DanJ86

      I don't know who said that. I get that you might be trying to make a point, but it comes across as a little obnoxious. But maybe I'm just misreading the situation.

      Anyway, I do kind of like how some of the Pokémon look in Detective Pikachu. This Sonic? Um...I'm not so sure about.

    7. Diogenes

      Diogenes

      i've said that, but i didn't "bring this on myself" for stating a fact.

      the movie was doomed the instant they made it live action. sonic as we know him was never going to fit into a live action world and any sonic that could fit into a live action world would not be sonic as we know him.

      Even worse. Literally hedgehog eyes.

  12. What did I miss? Apparently Sonic's been redesigned again?

      Never thank me.

      DanJ86

      It can't be that bad. *See's @DiamondX reply* Oh, god!?

  13. Classic Sonic specifically seems to be, yes. Everyone and their mother sung Sonic Mania's praises afterall.
  14. My favorite characters in Smash Ultimate so far are Richter, Ganondorf, and Young Link. I need to get used to Sonic.

  15. Ganondorf is so fucking busted, lol. He's probably going to be my main.

  16. The funni boys are back with Pokemon Red version.

     

  17. I keep using the spin dash when I want to use the homing attack, and its pissing me off, lol.
