    Hear hear! The Chibi on DP remakes is a taste thing, you either love it or you don't. But I hold out that they're still improving Framerate for Legends Arceus. As someone else said: THIS is the shit we EXPECTED Sw&SH to be!

    Damn, you're young, lol. My first game was literally the first game, Red on Gameboy. I was in the 8th grade when they came out here in America.

    I stopped playing Pokemon games for quite a while after Gold and Silver, so I don't have any nostalgia for Diamond and Pearl. As much as this is a prime opportunity to play through them for the first time, I think I'm still more interested in Legends Arceus. Overworld battles should've been added ages ago.

    I get the sinking feeling that they wont, based on all the criticisms that SwSh had in it's initial trailer that were not fixed even to this day. (Things like the graphics/tree textures)

    I'm actually glad for both the D/P remakes and the prequel. Pearl was my first game as well (I got into the series late), so I'm really excited to go back to having a Luxray main. And getting a totally new game set on the same place, but with new mechanics? I'm not a huge Pokemon fan, but I'm excited for that.

    PS: love that Shinx was in the video so many times lol. I kid you not, Shinx was my "real" starter in those games; I caught him first and oh boy he was my pal forever.

    For People that dont get why people are hating on the dp remake style its easy lets see

    fire red and leaf green used gen 3 ruby and saphire gba engine and graphics for the remake

    heart gold and soul silver used gen 4 graphics(platinium) for the remake

    omega ruby and alpha sapphire used x and y engine and graphics for the remake

    brilliant diamond instead of using sword and shield graphics and engine for a full 3d look went back to gen 4 graphics but in 3d instead of sprites so... meh and gamefreak didnt even do it themselves, they just chose a company that did a random pokemon sleep app do it for them, they didn't even bothered and outsourced it.

    So its easy to see why people are upset, instead of using current gen engine/graphics they just went back just turned the sprites in 3d without doing much work and made everything into chibbi.

    I never did, personally; what I'd have liked was a Sinnoh remake, or in other words remaking the best version of Sinnoh - Platinum.

    I'm pumped for the release of Pokemon Snap more than anything else. Way overdue, I still beat the N64 game every couple of years. The mechanics of finding ways to take interesting pics should be fun.

    I'm worried constantly taking photos will become tedious grinding after a while, personally. I grew up way after the N64 era, only getting to play Stadium when I visited a primary school friend's house (I fell out of touch with the guy when we went to different high schools); I never did get to play the original Snap, or pretty much any other 64 games.
    So yeah, I've got...mixed...feelings about New Snap.

    I mean, the Ranger trio was centred around circling sprites a bunch, but it had enough things to break up the monotony - three fun stories and side quests. Mystery Dungeon DS (screw the 3DS and Switch garbage) had awesome stories and characters to break up the dungeon exploration.

    New Snap, so far, doesn't seem to have much of a story or any worthwhile characters to snap away from the snapping.

    the opposite actually...considering before the announcement of pokemon legends the series basically fell into the rut if being nintendo's call of duty. the same game, printed out every year...with some tweaks and new content but other wise pretty much completely interchangeable with the pervious title

    So basically they made the remake look more like the latest animes......... too much chibinnes and I hate it.

    Also the, "main" game look nothing special and there are some frame rate and animation issues..... not impressed and I highly doubt they would fix them. Graphics also kinda meh...... hell SW/SH looks actually better for me.

    The only game I'll actually play from this is the new Pokemon Snap game.

    Actually im most impressed with that game even though I never played and never liked those "snap" games (expect that the Venusaur looks really really strange).......

    OK, oh well...... I will admit it, people can in fact "change" their opinions and what not, like completelly the oposite :rofl:

    Learning it the hardest way......
