    What are you trying to imply? That nice-looking coherent spritework like the original isn't for kids? Character models that look like they naturally exist in the world isn't for kids?

    A lot of instances from the trailer look awkward. Like someone put their Pokemon toys on top of some watercolor paintings and called it a day. It's easier to put emotes above unchanging or hopping-up-and-down small handheld sized sprites, than it is to use those same above-head emotes on blank-faced 3D models. It's far more jarring in this modern instance than it was in the original.

    Gold and Silver only required you enter the Ecruteak Pokemon Center.
    You did however need 150 Pokémon caught in the Pokedex to transfer Pokémon with a different OT in Stadium 2's PC if you were transferring that way.

    i get what your saying. the pokémon lack emotions in the new art style. only their chat avatars give us an idea of what they are feeling and thinking w/o words.

    Personally i like the water color painting style. Pokemon is one of the few games were it fits nicely. I will agree though, the animations are effectively non-existence and it’s sad. i see it as a result of keeping firered and leaf green standby animations.

    I want to like the watercolor style, I'm always down for that Tales of/Valkyria kinda artstyle. But unlike the latter two examples, Pokemon MD seems to have gone with the concept of the art, and then slapped the models in later, hoping they'd mesh well. Having completed the demo, it's kinda even more amusing, seeing that some Pokemon (Charmander, Pikachu) have decent animations, while others, (Totodile and his constant arms-out mini t-pose and Bulbasaur being limited to the mildest of head-tilts for expression) don't fare as well. It's one of those cases where I think where working within the limitations ended up making the original game a little more timeless. Doesn't mean I won't buy it day 1 and won't enjoy it like I did when I was 9, but I probably will find myself quirking an eyebrow at the weird animations.

    Still a dick move for them to cut Pokemon only for them to "conveniently" add them later DLC. Can't spell Gamefreak without EA.

    I don't think they intended to ever re-add the Pokemon. Game Freak just saw the sales numbers and the desire for older Pokemon and decided to put two and two together. At the very least, Pokemon Home users or regular non DLC owners can get those Pokemon via trades/importing.

    I could have sworn there was a news thread on GBATemp before Sw/Sh release that announced Dexit where 3 or 4 of us called it that they'd release older pokemon and expanded regions as paid DLC. Where'd that go?

    I bet all of you that are complaining about the dlc price are the kind of people that go out and pay nearly $200 for the deluxe edition of most Xbox and play station games. Quit complaining already. You wanted more Pokémon, you got it. Now be happy you little brats.

    DLC for the old pokes.
    This could set a really bad precedent :unsure:
    Hopefully consumers are smart and don't fall for this sht, but who am i kidding? sht will probably end up as the most sold DLC for the switch :rofl2::rofl2:

    The pokemon will be added in free updates, you will still be able to trade and import them with Pokebank 2.0 so it's just like any other pokemon you can only get by transfering from an older gen

    Back in the old days when I first played Pokemon during Gen 3 you had to do just that. The only way to get the Johto starters was through Emerald. Not to mention all the Kanto and Johto Pokemon that you could only get through FireRed and LeafGreen, or Coliseum and XD. Of course, DLC wasn't an option back then so they really couldn't do much about it beyond extending development time or releasin g them in additional products. Here they could, but chose not to for whatever reason.

    So, I don't get it. People are bitching about DLC, but would probably shell out another $60 for an "ultra" or "complete" version.
