Honestly....it was a day one buy for me. I was so excited. And then...that happened. So now I'm waiting to see what happens. Then I'll see if it's worth 6500-7000 yen or not. If I buy it... I'll get Pokemon Sword.
Gen 7 was awful and this looks less technically competent than the N64 and Gamecube games. I'm not buying something just because it has "Pokemon" on the box. Can't wait for Super Duper Sword and Shield to come out next Christmas and have "has all the Pokemon" as a selling point despite currently trying to spin the opposite as a positive like with Fallout 76 and NPCs.
