    I've been waiting for Diamond and Pearl remakes for a very long time. Hopefully the day is finally approaching. Another Let's Go game would be cool too. The last one was fun but really needed more Pokemon.

    If this direct announces DLC for Pokemon Sword and Shield.... ̶t̶h̶a̶n̶k̶ ̶y̶o̶u̶ get fucked GameFreak!

    Diamond and Pearl are so slow and tedious to play. It's a game that NEEDS a remake

    An expanded pokedex shouldn't be paid DLC. If it were free DLC that required a game update then that would make total sense.

    What I want: New Pokemon Stadium, new Mystery Dungeon, Gen 4 remakes, a GBC/GBA NSO service that lets me play the original Gen 1/2 or Gen 3 games on Switch...

    What we'll probably get: Pokemon Home/Sleep info, perhaps a patch for SwSh, and some trailers for the next TCG set (Which I'm actually pretty excited for, no more Tag Team cards..)

    You can remove the 30fps cap which makes the games run faster. The game will slow down in bigger areas and speed up in smaller areas so it's far from perfect but still an improvement overall.

    Eh, I really enjoy Nintendo stuff way more than I do the other big two, Pokemon has just lost it's magic.
    It's a kids game, and I get that, but the way it talks down to players now is kinda mind numbing. =/

    Actually, just adding all existing pokemon into Sw/Sh isn't enough to fix the game.

    I'm not noticing this, but alright. I'm actually enjoying SW/SH tons more than I did the last two generations. It's not full of tedium and boring mechanics shoehorned in for filler. Everything else people are complaining about are absolutely non-issues judging by my experience with it thus far.
    Where is it broken? Aesthetics don't count.

    1) Bad animations
    2) Wild Area is a nice idea but the execution is awful
    3) All routes are straightforward
    4) Focus on competitive instead of main story
    5) Removal of important moves
    6) Extremely watered down battle tower
    7) Online missing key features
    8) Bad plot
    9) Awful graphics

    Don't know what to tell you, just about every review for these games talk about the hand holding which is tedium in it purest form. Beyond that the games are ugly, and no that's not subjective, gimmicky, if your think dynamaxing and the wild area aren't shoehorned filler than oh boy, and with a story so shallow and empty you'd find more in an episode of Barney. Glad you're having fun with it though, genuinely, I play some pretty dumb games too that no one likes so it makes me happy to see someone enjoy themselves. =]

    That still doesn't mean it shouldn't get a remake

    1) Aesthetic.
    2) It's an interesting take on Victory Road in my opinion.
    3) Implying Pokémon games aren't linear.
    4) Blame the fan base as they made it apparent that they just power through the main game just to start competing.
    5) Meh?
    6) ^
    7) Which would be? I honestly don't know.
    8) They haven't been good in a long time.
    9) Aesthetic.

    None of this breaks the game, though, so it didn't answer my question.

    As I said above, the series hasn't had a good plot in over a decade. The graphics have been ugly ever since they took the 3DS art direction. I'd argue that the environments are at least pleasing to look at. Dynamaxing is a better mechanic than mega evolutions, so it wasn't really shoehorned in, but rather replaced an old one. The wild areas are also Victory Road reimagined, which is, again, another replacement. Neither of these can be considered filler. I feel the latter needs fixing, though. I'm not going to say that this wasn't obviously rushed, but I don't feel it deserves the negative attention it's getting when people can't take off their nostalgia goggles long enough to even play it.
