    Since Unleashed it's easy to imagine them tweaking the -other- characters (Werehog, Classic Sonic, Avatar) to just be another already existing character and fans would probably have enjoyed the games more for it.

    I mean, it's not Robotnik. It's just Jim Carrey Slapstick Villain number 312.

    This has already been pointed out to you as being false. Repeating it doesn't make it true.
     
     
     
    People gave Let's Go a pass, sorta, because the excuse was that it was just Game Freak getting use to the hardware (that they charged money for). SwSh never got a pass. As soon as it was shown off it was criticized for being substandard compared to pretty much every other Nintendo game on the system.
    Yes, people have gotten angrier at it since Dexit since it is clear now that the reasoning given for it was completely made up since the game still looks like garbage; but due to the leaks we've also been able to see actual gameplay and get technical details that makes it look significantly worse than the cherry picked things Game Freak has shown off to this point.

    What a coincidence. Sword and Shield runs like shit all the time.
     
    720p30, on a game that looks like it came out in 2002, is not acceptable. 720p30, on a game loaded with stuff ported from a fucking 3DS game, is not acceptable. 720p30, on a game that has levels of graphics pop-in and stretched muddy textures last seen on PS2 launch games, is not acceptable. There are original Xbox games with 720p support that look better than this and run better than this. The entire previous console generation developers were chewed out when they debuted games that only ran at 720p30, and they rarely looked as bad as this. It's fucking absurd the leash Game Freak is given, how low everyone's standards are, that they can make a glorified 3DS game that meets the minimum possible performance standard of the previous console generation and they are given a pass because... What? They are too incompetent to expect more of? They are too lazy to even approach what other developers do in the system?
     
     
     
    You can add whatever increasingly obvious lies from Game Freak's attempts at damage control over the summer on top of that to make it even more ridiculous that it looks as bad as it does; but even ignoring that game performance is just as much a part of image quality as raw visuals, and this game does neither worth a shit. That's despite Game Freak shitting out a game that looked all the world like upscaled Wii shovelware to "get accustomed to the hardware" last year.

    No, these problems wouldn't be overlooked if not for the PR disasters. I didn't say that. People would still be pissed about the bad graphics. Reception for the first trailer focused a lot on the game looking like an upscaled 3DS title, and thus is long before we knew about Dexit it the other PR disasters.
     
    "Average Pokémon game" is a pretty low bar to set. The past two or three generations have had issues with graphics and gameplay that people are becoming less and less forgiving about. There are a few good QoL changes, and that's just about where the improvements, additions and changes end. With SwSh, we're getting the exact same deal yet again, except with some significant steps backwards. Dexit is the straw that broke the camels back.
     
    People aren't forgiving the problems anymore because they can't justify them.

    Super Mario Odyessey & BOTW are not only absurdly better animated, but just altogether better done then any mainline Pokemon game including the upcoming ones. How is this a question? Are you really trying to argue that the barely animated Pokemon models in SwSh are comparable to the minor problems in Super Mario Odyessey??? The difference is night and day.

    Other games aren't without their graphical issues, but they're generally impressive or particularly nice to look at. Or they're not marred with other huge problems.
    SwSh don't just have very subpar visuals, they've got subpar everything. If the graphics of SwSh were exactly the same but it didn't have the other issues concerning gameplay, content etc, people would be much more forgiving. But Game Freak have been very open about the decisions they've made for SwSh, and none of them really add up. Nothing looks like it justifies just SwSh are lacking so much content and look like little more than upscaled 3DS games. Pokémon has been feeling more and more phoned in with every new instalment. The Switch should be a huge step up in possibilities for the series after its been relegated to highly underpowered handhelds for its entire existence in the past. People are quite rightly finding a lot of faults, but Game Freak has launched a strange PR offensive to make people feel sorry for them and their workload.
    And I'm going to say that SwSh's graphics simply aren't on the same level as most Switch games. They're definitely not on the same level as other first/second-party games either. Pokémon is one of the biggest franchises in the world, and one of Nintendo's flagships. These games are going to sell in excess of 10 million in a year, and that's a conservative estimate. Let's Go has collectively sold 11.3 million units in a year, and I'll be surprised if SwSh don't eclipse that. SwSh have no excuse have any cut corners.
    Show me some Switch games that look as visually naff as SwSh. I've just been watching videos of FE:TH and it looks much, much better than SwSh.

    It definitely looks bad especially when one of their excuses for cutting a big portion of the dex was "graphics and quality animation"

    Also what @Strong Guy said is hilariously true too. Most of the work for old Pokémon was already done for SuMo and Let's Go.

    I don't find it weird cause Sword and Shield do look bad graphically. Low resolution textures, weak lighting and awful animation. 
     
    Speaking of animation, there are two things to discuss; the humans and the Pokémon. The Pokémon have been discussed at length already. They hardly move in battle. They have very basic animations for idle, attack 1, attack 2 and taking damage. These are lifted directly out XY/SuMo. The rest of the animation is handled via rotating the model and graphic overlays, exactly like a Game Boy game. It looks cheap and lazy. Remember Darkest Lariat in SuMo? It was literally the Pokémon T-posing and being rotated. You're never supposed to see a T-pose, and here it was front and centre. We know that the SwSh animations are just as cheap.

    And then there are the human animations. Outside of a handful of fully animated cutscenes, everything in the overworld is animated as though it's a GameBoy game too. All human characters share a small pool of animations (once again from the 3DS games) and rigidly get swapped between them the cutscene progresses. Character walks in straight line > character rotates 90 degrees to face the player > character starts talking with casual animation > character stands idle > character rotates 90 degrees to face away > character enters full casual talking animation for about 0.5 seconds to say something else > character walks off. You know how The Sims were animated back in the year 2000? That's how Game Freak animate their games. It looks cheap and lazy. It's not an artistic choice either. It's just bad. These games aren't on a grid, and don't make any use of animation blending. It's truly a laughable effort.
    I don't play Fire Emblem so the comparison is totally lost on me. But it sounds like you're saying that people shouldn't be complaining about SwSh when other games also look bad.

    Put him in the mech from Fighters. I don't have any deep reasoning for this I just like the design
    Also yeah I'd like to see him playable again. I always found it a little strange it was a one time thing. At least his stages in SA2 are fun imo (compared to Tails' stages especially).
