Am I the only one bothered by the ethnic groups in Pokemon Legends Arceus?

I can't give a single fuck about what skin color the NPCs have.

It's a fictional game about cartoon monsters that just so happens to be loosely based off of the Meiji Restoration period. Who tf cares about historical accuracy

Personally, I don't really see a problem with the ethnicites and whatnot. Canonically those ethnicites already integrated in Sinnoh in modern gen 4.

What I would have loved for them to do is bring the old school '96 sugimori artstyle to 3D, you see his new style on a region that's supposed to be of old, to see the aesthetic of Gen 1 character design, but alas it was not meant to be.

You want to bitch about something how about the fact that pokemon silver/gold had more pokemon in the fuckin pokedex than this part of a fucking game and dumb ass's still throw money at it like sheep. Make a complete fuckin pokemon game and quit making excuses

Seeing characters who are clearly European and African in a game based in feudal Japan annoys me. I want the characters to look ethnically Japanese and have Japanese names. They can add in some characters to represent Japan's ethnic minorities as they were at that point in history but there's no need to Americanize the game.
Username checks out.

What? :wtf: That's your main argument?

A game with European and African NPC's is an Americanization? @[email protected] Work Time Fun!

There's a stinky smell of disguised racism on your "argument"... Dismissed!

From what I have learned in this thread.

Your rascist if you want something to want something to be ethnically accurate.

Even if his poorly worded argument based on a fictional content does have its own merit.

"Nah he just doesn't want coloured people rascist"


Aka anyone thinking he's rascist and not just a dumb dumb are snowflakes being triggered.

You can think he's an idiot but cmon guys literally Twitter plebs here having a riot

I do feel like a lot of people here are like Tweeters. People without social skills bandwagoning on something.

Pretty much once Tumblr were forced to migrate to Twitter and then they realised the public actually now read what they say the bandwagons began and now everyone jumps on and boy if you say anything remotely not acceptable even from like a decade ago.

In come the keyboard army ready to dox

It annoys me too, I will go out of my way to not buy a game that I know is going to be "woke". For example when they put africans in the European front in Battlefield 1 it was the first BF game I never bought and still to this day have never played.

I dont know if you are aware but in feudal japan there was plenty of people from other countries including africans and europeans
That is just outright false. There may have been a few foreign guests in Japan at that time but never enough to even be 1% of the population and certainly they never would have been considered Japanese or part of what was normative Japanese life and culture. To this day Japan is more or less homogenous, they take virtually zero refugees and it is almost impossible to gain citizenship if you are not ethnically Japanese.

Mass immigration and the push for diversity is more or less a recent western phenomena (since after WW2) and it is at the behest of big business and banks
