    Agreed. I like trials and i'm looking forward to them changing stuff up in future games. The whole gym idea really was getting incredibly stale.

    Funny thing is, it was probably the worst Pokemon game.

    I fell out on 5th gen and this was a lot worse.

    With 5th gen, I was not open to accept the different things they brought to it, but with this I was ready for all changes. Yet they bring nothing but annoyance

    That's a little too harsh.

    I don't feel gyms added anything to Pokemon games besides an unnecessary formality of the pokemon league. Badges mean nothing.

    If they do bring in more gyms, I'd like them to be more challenging. I'd like the pokemon league overall to make me feel accomplished.

    At the very least a new game+ mode with scaling levels for trainer and gym leader Pokemon would be good. Unfortunately they're quickly moving in the opposite direction, in Sun/Moon half the damn game is a tutorial.

    Just my opinion.

    The game is extremely short. If it was at the pace of x and y, I would probably finish it within a few hours. Not even speed running.

    They slowed down the pace of the game extremely to make it longer. Animation times are annoying, loading within the same area takes a few seconds, z moves take bloody 2 minutes, constantly holding my hands... Oh you can't go to the right. Why? Just because you can't, game wants you to go to the left.
    Also I thought they said that sizes are finally going to compare to character sizes. But hardly that's the case.
    The trials are piss easy. The game is piss easy.
    It feels harder because of the battles. Everyone has faster Pokemon then the ones you can catch. EVERYONE. The Pokemon that are available on your journey are atrociously slow and will get outsped by anything the opponents throw at you. Unless you spend some time for rare encounter or something good. The encounter system in this game is bad. Not enough areas so there are way too many 1℅ and 5℅ encounters. Spent 30 hours for bagon and about 40 hours to catch castform.

    Online functionality went backwards. Bottom screen had everything we need. But what do we get? Festival plaza. I never gave a fuck about the gimmicks they added. I was only ever concerned with the main aspects of the game.

    Anyway. I could go on with the negatives forever. But as I said, it's only my opinion. I am wanting to embrace the changes and hoping that it's a bridge to a better game in the future.

    First Pokemon I have truly enjoyed in a very long time (and I buy them all), so I'm pretty happy they've been selling so well.
    Hopefully the next games will also have more story and collectibles.
