Yeah there are some good improvements here and there, but overall still feels like they're trying to stretch 5 hours of content out into 25.

Ture ... as seen in the trailer before already you get "quests" like catch 25 of pokemon a then catch 20 of Pokemon b withouth getting seen, whatch pokemon c do 20 times attack x .... kinda stupid and I really hope this is only optional and not required to advance in that awfull weak story.

I know there was never a really good story behind Pokemon but damn, you fall trough a hole into a differnt time and place and the prof just tells you "oh yeah my pokemon like you and you are probably a natural so complete my pokedex" ... not even any kind of "why am I here, how do I get back" nothing XD

Ugly textures but I don't even care. This has made me enjoy Pokémon again for the first time in forever
I really don't enjoy that they took away the whole "You need to weaken the pokemon before you can catch it" gameplay mechanic from modern games. They screwed up the formula in my opinion.

They didn't though? Both stealth and traditional status affliction+red health are viable ways to catch different pokemon.

Ten hours in now. Can't stop playing lol. Thank you based retail street date breakers.

Performance handheld is atrocious. Battles hitch and freeze. Docked is fine.

Gameplay is very fun. The map is huge and you unlock more areas as you go. Seems like there's a lot of water areas so hopefully there's a surfing pokemon to unlock further in the story.

Definitely takes some cues from BOTW. Side quests and a korok seed like gathering mission. Over 100 to find. Curious what it unlocks.

Trainer battles are few and far between, no one has more than two mons ever. But it's still novel to see trainer battles every once in a while.

The catching method blends old school pokemon with action gameplay really well. You can do either or, whichever you like, but some pokemon play by safari zone rules so they might run from a turn based battle. Very fun.

Absolutely loving it. Glad I didn't fall for the negativity anti hype. Game freak is lazy but I think they did a great job with this one.

I tend to agree for the most part. Only about 5 hours in myself. I do think it's really hard on the eyes though and for me, no music played for the entirety of the first research excursion, which didn't help the presentation, but otherwise, the mechanics are surprisingly fun, I think the resource gathering is really intuitive and non intrusive, and since catching pokemon is so snappy, haven't minded needing to catch several (so far). I wish the professor didn't look so terrible though, pulls me right out every time he shows up. I'm debating if I want to stop playing so I don't have to redo too much when I get the actual game.

The graphics and the sound are both awfull. The only sound you hear are footsteps and sometimes 2 drums when you speak to someone. Never seen so bad sound design in a game. Graphics are like xenoblade on the wii, hopefully it got like 800 pokemon to compensate.

I am almost certain that the game is in an semi-unfinished state just like BDSP 1.0.0 was.
There might be more fixes and better textures coming later in an update.
But that's just me on a lot of hopium, it's gamefreak after all and I might as well expect that they are not going to do anything.

If you already played Gen IV, the game pretty much gives away the reward. I'd be surprised if it is not an encounter with a certain Pokémon that already had a connection to the item that makes you see those collectibles.

    Well why do you think Johnny Depp's been on tv more often

    I'm looking at some of the series "based on real events" that are coming out. There is absolutely no reason for them to be longer than an hour and a half. Instead we have entire seasons of drama.

    Theranos? You can fit the entire story into a single movie. But nope, entire season.

    The last two series I watched were 9 hours long and at the end the plot didn't develop from the start. It was all just people talking to each other and going to different places
