Damn. Honestly it's a technical mess but the ambition gets higher and higher with each entry so im not complaining too much.

I'll return to the series in an entry or two if they can iron out the kinks

Nintendo fans are really something else. if Sony released today something that looks like a ps3 game I would say fuck it and just buy an Xbox.
I really hope Switch 2 is another weak ass console that will run next DOOM at 30fps 720p in year 2027 lol

I've heard that it's actually performing okay-ish when docked, compared to handheld mode. Can anyone confirm?
Nope, frame pacing and frame spikes all the time, drops to mid twenties when traveling with some more serious drops to low twenties when any scripted "cutscenes" happen. Paired with puke ugly graphics and other technical "wonders"

I can't stand Dreamcast guy, he is nothing but clickbait and literally jumps on every negative hate train.

He should go back to doing top 10s about games he actually likes.



Anyway more on topic, I think it is a huge shame that Pokémon games lacking quality keep selling like hot cakes, especially when you have some genuinely excellent games that won't even sell a 10th of this in their life time.

And people wonder why they don't try to release anything but the basic level of game. How much more would they have sold had they slapped Triple A makeup on it? Probably not enough to justify it

Proof that nobody cares about framerate, resolution or graphics as long as it’s fun. 🤷🏻‍♂️
I don't think it's that... Complaints got widespread over the time, most people had the game preordered or bought the first day... If the issues this game has will affect still to be seen on the next installments
 
Pretty fuckin nuts to think that GoW @ 5.1m in a week is Sony’s best ever selling game and Game Freak can just shit out a poo and it sells 10m in 3 days. Never before has it been laid out so plainly that Nintendo are on their own planet.

Pokemon is the biggest franchise on the planet, it makes perfect sense

In gaming forums is only place you usually see complains about graphics, outside of that majority of people dont care.
people just want to play the game. They dont have the time to see the review, which is sad. because that is how these companies gets away with these issues.

Yep, just like every year “gaming enthusiast” try and clown CoD, or insert random sports game, and they go on to be the biggest sellers of the year. Pokemon is bigger than gaming, no amount of ‘backlash’ is gonna cause people to not want to play pokemon. You’ll never see Gamefreak break the bank to appease the small minority of people that complain about graphics and stuff.

I bought the last two pokemon games and just kind of realized its not for me anymore so i barely even acknowledge when they come out but there is a whole world of people out there that don’t give a shit about any of that.

Its similar to era complaining about Harry Potter. No amount of complaining about JK Rowling is going to make it not a massive seller

I don't think this is the only problem though and neither isolated to this forum(you can basically find problems about this game anywhere).
Graphical bugs, weird pop in, vomit looking textures, game crashing, etc. If people find this fun though, well thats some wild level of fetish I got say.
