    If Gf is charging half of a complete game for each dlc then i expect half the " content " thats in the main game.. wich isnt much now that i think about it.. still cash grab like no tomorrow.

    Dunno why Miyamoto doesnt step in and say anything about the quality of the game.. man..so sad.

    A solid offering and a step in the right direction after somewhat rushed base game, imo. I'm pleased that a lot of older pokemon will return and we'll get an opportunity to catch them without having to trade/transfer from older games, since that means less hurdles for newcomers to complete the dex. I see a lot of people whining (especially about "re-introduced pokemon being paid" despite them not being paid), but that's GBATemp being GBATemp :)

    Does this signify the end of the third version, or as the case is these days, the third and fourth version?
    I for one certainly hope so. Expecting people to buy essentially the same game again for some minor changes to the story and maybe some postgame content is kind of bullshit. $30 is still a lot of money to pay for what is likely a small amount of extra content, but it's only half the price of a game. Or less.

    I can't help but feel like they cut content from the games to release it as DLC later though. I might be completely wrong, but I can't help but feel that way when Sword/Shield are possibly the shortest Pokemon games released to date. They might not have purposely cut the games short, but with the lack of postgame content, not even a single secret area to explore, it kind of seems like they were purposely saving the postgame content for DLC.

    They didn't make new models anyway, people have compared them and they are almost identical, just a few more polygons to make them smoother. And the animations certainly haven't improved.
    Buuuuut they didn't actually say they were adding all the Pokemon back in. In fact, quite to the contrary, they said you would be able to transfer Pokemon into the games from Home only if they exist in the DLC (without having to own the actual DLC, of course)
    Now that doesn't necessarily mean they won't add every Pokemon back in. But they certainly haven't said anything suggesting they would.

    Miyamoto doesn't talk to the Pokemon team anymore because they wouldn't name a legendary pokemon after him

    Think the best games content was HG/SS, the Pichu, Giovanni and mystery gifts just kept on giving, I’m quite looking forward to the Sw/Sh DLC but I feel they’re going to be short and not offer the same excitement

    Didn’t read my fallowing post? And reread my post you quoted too. the game’s trailer looked poor quality compared to the actual demo. I have seen played the demo and i would agree it’s worth 45-50 max. i don’t like playing full price for remakes. Finally where did you see the engine? The demo doesn’t even have the unity logo. If it is unity, than i say it’s worth 5-10 dollars less. Unity is a fast and easy engine to work with. Just look at all the indie trash that’s made quickly with it. Not saying DX is trash. What i am saying is unity means potentially less work was done to create it.

    That's why they where so evasive about questions about the incomplete Pokédex. Man, what a sad thing to happen to a great franchise like Pokémon. EA virus is spreading even more.

    Something just popped into my head. What if the new birds are Lugia merger forms exclusive to one version and they’ll do another set merged with Ho-ho? They did merged pokémon before with the black/white re-releases.

    Haha here's the thing

    you have to buy the Dlc to get access to the areas to catch the new pokemon... so while you don't have to buy the dlc to get the new pokemon via trading with someone else who has the pokemon(I;e bought the dlc), you cannot catch the pokemon without the paywall.

    So while yes the pokemon are added to the game for free, to access them you have to pay for them.

    Like giving you a free gun but the gun is in a gun safe, and the only way to get the gun out is by buying a key to unlock the safe.

    atleast that's what I heard, kinda like the slowpoke you get for free, the only way to get it to evolve is by getting an item that is available in the dlc areas only.

    That's how it worked in nearly every previous Pokemon game, though - you got a regional dex with some oldies and newbies, and then you could expand it by transfering/trading mons from other games. Only this time, newcomers can actually just buy the DLC and complete dex (mostly) solo without purchasing prev-gen pokemon games to forward-transfer their mons.

    I already paid for the DLC they give you a pikachu outfit. I mean guys this is nothing new most games have DLC on them.

    I knew the game was rushed that's why I only paid $30 for it on offerup if you paid full price for the game no disrespect but that was just a poor buisness decision. Most pokemon games were in the 29.99-34.99 price range. I know it's a switch but you have to sit back and ask yourself is this game really worth $60. If the answer is no then just buy it used.

    I had $10 in my Nintendo account so I basically paid $20 so all together $50 I mean it's just a buisness decision by Nintendo.

    Rescue Team DX...currently playing that, and I hate how they removed the A-button attack. In the original GBA/DS games (and the Explorer of games, and I believe also Gates to Infinity), the player could press A to do a simple attack that dealt less damage than regular moves, but was excellent for finishing opponents off after using a move since you'd still gain boosted EXP (for using a move against the foe at least once) and for saving PP.

    Why'd they remove this?
