    I know nobody's gonna like me saying this but the D&P remakes and New Pokemon Snap look like ASS without the main game's toon shading.

    No disappointments to be found, it was a fantastic presents! We finally got the Sinnoh remakes and they look incredible and very true to the original games. We also got another mainline game for next year which is also in Sinnoh with open world mechanics, Hype train has finally arrived!

    NOT PLATINUM

    DAMN IT YOU FOOLS

    ...What, is it "too hard" to redo the Distortion World? What about the Battle Frontier, and the VS Recorder?

    It's really weird seeing such a harsh reaction towards the D/P remake's art-style, I figured most folks that played it in the past would have wanted to see it remade visually similar to the original.

    I do like the art style - it's similar to Link's Awakening or A Link Between Worlds - but it NEEDS more snow.
    Platinum had snow patches in Twinleaf, and this remake could've extended that to Route 201 too, along with Verity Lakefront.

    That Legends game, though...brings back major Breath of the Wild vibes, stylistically, which isn't a good thing.

    I think I'm in the minority but I was bummed to see Pokémon drop the chibi art style- it had so much charm to it. I'm glad to see it back but the graphics in general look unfinished as if what ever retarded game engine they're still using is still not optimized for the switch.

    Pokémon legends just looks like its being run by a potato. That frame rate makes my eyes bleed

    Is the video for anybody else laggy? The music plays, but the picture only changes all few seconds. On YT it works.

    hmm
    I just REALLY hope that they will not use the trashy catching mechanics of "Let´s Go".

    A real open world Pokemon would be beautiful.

    I would've loved an actual Platinum remake, since that improved on pretty much every issue DP had - Surf speed was increased from walking to running speed, a decent amount of Fire-types were added to the regional Dex (so Flint could have an actual themed team), Distortion World, Battle Frontier, introducing Rotom formes and Shaymin Sky forme, VS Recorder, earlier Cyrus appearances including a new battle in Celestic Town Ruins...that Wi-Fi room not many people could experience due to the DS not supporting anything better than WEP...

    Why did you choose the inferior games, guys? Why?

    Just please don't make it worse by removing stuff again...

    Diamonds and pearl are by default great games, this " remakes" looks awful I don't care if people are blind as fuck, we waited for 14 years it was the most waited generation remakes and they totally ruined it, THANKS.

    There's two types of people: either you love the graphical style or you hate it

    I'd love it if they made the Pokeball controller as an optional way to play. (Not forced, just optional. A single Joy-con would be cool too, just like the Let's GO! games.)

    Nah fam, they tried to keep it "in the feel of" the DS version, graphically. Just like they did with the OR/AS remakes, and they did the same with the HG/SS remakes. Kept the graphics close in style to the originals. I prefer it this way.

    Maybe they'll sell us back the Platinum stuff as a $20 DLC pack. I'd be down for that. Give us a New Game+ mode with the Platinum stuff as an option. And maybe a new difficulty for seasoned veterans. I'm kind of shocked they haven't added in randomizers and stuff that fans have been doing mods of for years.

    i appreciate them trying something new, but i dont think the stubby toy overworld look is going to do well on the switch.

    also, i really hope they don't believe that 20fps is a design choice... like, why was that footage dropping so many frames?

    Exactly, people set their expectations too high. I think they're perfect as they showed them.

    Personally, I'd prefer to spend my money on Legends Arceus rather than on BD or SP

    Agreed. I'm more intrigued by Arceus at least in the short term, but would be kidding myself to suggest I won't be buying both anyway.
