i have my copy!

but i can't play at the moment cause i'm making a thing

but i'm excited!

If my Sprigatito is male, i will name him PussInBoots

if female, then Nepeta

Unfortunately like pretty much all starters, it's like 85% male and 15% female. Really annoying, but whatever

I'm definitely considering picking it up.  Currently weighing it against just saving money since I've got other stuff I'm playing already.  But like...Pokemon is fun.

hooooly crap! this game is immense! like i'm only on route 1 and i've already caught 40 unique pokemon

this is freakin awesome!!!

also i love my little Sprigatito, he's such a little scamp PussInBoots <3

i've played it for about 4ish hours, and i haven't really noticed anything that bad. like the worst thing i've seen is people beyond a certain distance has a lower framerate, but it's not nearly as bad as i thought it ws gonna be

this game is actually pretty incredible!

The game doesn't really offers anything to you if you aren't a Pokémon fan already.


I mean I saw a bit of performance jank when I played doeabout two hours earlier, but for one it was nothing major, and second the console has been in sleep mode rather than had a full reset, and I am hearing a lot of reports that the latter helps.

Which isn't ideal, true, but not unheard of in plenty of other games aswell.

Weed cat, duh

yeah the performance isn't super great, but I haven't had any insane issues with it on my end


for real though it's so much bigger than the other games and not just in size, but in terms of the amount of content. THREE DIFFERENT MAIN QUESTLINES essentially, it's SO FUCKING COOL

also nemona is so fucking hot im so gay

okay go away then

This thread is a thread about the new Pokemon game for people who are playing and enjoying it.

You do not come in here with negativity saying there's no reason for non-fans to play the game and then get offended when I tell you to leave.

If you are not a fan of Pokemon or playing and enjoying the new game, why do you feel it is necessary to come in here talking about how you're not a fan of it? Go. Away.

The fabulous duck made a compelling argument, but I made my mind up long ago

Still though the fact it came close shows how much that posh lil dude stood out!

Oh my God he does look like a bubble bobble character!

Honestly not even close! After the reviews on performance, I expected a lot more chug and chopping

But frankly it hasn't been bad at all for me in. Framers dips a bit here and there, but it doesn't bother me

Nintendo has mentioned a memory leak that'll fuck stuff up the longer the game is left running.  So make sure to save the game and close it completely every once in a while to avoid glitches and crashing.

Fuck, this is like the best pokemon game.  Wasn't sure what to expect going into it, but now that it's here?  Everything is perfect.


File: 1668968084957.png (38.81 KB, 170x189, 170:189, Thinking Fluttershy.png) ImgOps Google

the two opinions i see are that it is an amazing game, nearly perfect

or, it is unplayable, and awful

but, i find, it is the voices i most trust who are telling me, it is great!



>or, it is unplayable, and awful

It's more like the game is well thought out and designed really well ... but there are bugs and glitches and such that are causing the game to crash at certain times and at other times leaving the graphics glitchy too.

So not bad ideas, but great ideas executed with a defects they need to fix with a patch.


File: 1669091538745.jpg (19.32 KB, 289x296, 289:296, Awww Flutter.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

it really is like the best pokemon game all around

outside of patching the performance issue stuff, the only other thing i could think of to make it even better is giving it the pokemon catching and dodging mechanics of Legends Arceus

then it would truly be unstoppable!

I really wish that instead of dunking on the new generation of Pokemon games because of the performance issues that it would instead open up an avenue of conversation to talk about workers rights in the gaming industry of not just Japan, but the rest of the world as well.

These bugs and performance issues do not JUST come from the Switch's hardware not being strong enough to run at the level the new games require, in fact I think the console has the ability to run it more or less fine. The problem is much more clearly the fact that the devs had NO time to make this game. They were obviously rushed, they most likely had to work terribly hard to make the game work as well as it is now.

But nobody will talk about that, they're just going to point and laugh at the bugs and the issues and whatnot. We barely talk about how bad developers in the west are treated and how rushed they are, we DONT talk about the same in the East at all.


it is, i think, a result of leadership change, at Nintendo

previous leadership was more conservative: developers, not businessmen... pokemon was unchanging, but the quality was high.

new leadership is far more business oriented. pokemon is evolving, but quality is not as high, and games are being rushed.

I mean, we also live in a world where patches can be implemented later, so releasing it early is not as high of a risk

And given that pokemon always sells astronomically high, the risk to image is super low, so they can let something out without polish, and it not harming bottom line. So they can continue to bust out more games, fix em later, and minimize time between releases while maximizing stocks

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Scarlet and Violet, but one can tell that they are focusing releasing on time rather than delaying for a more polished product

Also I just evolved PussinBoots to a Meowscarada and I have a grafaiai named Banksy <3

I just want them to add in functionality for all Pokemon before the end of this game's lifecycle.

They don't have to be available to be caught naturally, but I'd like to be able to transfer from Pokemon Home into the game.

That said I'm not playing it right now or anything. It might be a year or two before I get around to it, so maybe that will happen.

That is finizen!

Palafin has 2 forms, zero form and hero form!

Zero form looks just like finizen but with a heart on their chest

Hero form is a much different story however. Goes full All Might (they are in both games)


I aint been training this one, but I do have it.

I am gonna have a HAAARD time picking 'Mons to train in the post game, so many of the new ones I just love.

You and I need to play together, cause you can only get Palafin by leveling them up in cooperative play

Also I fuckin LOVE grafaiai! I thought he looked alright on first reveal, but I've learned to really love the guy!

I named mine Banksy

They are just over the top enough to be hilarious 😂

But srsly super cute dolphin!


Well I really wanna battle you sometime, so absolutely.

I haven't used the one I got all that much. I may train one up later. It's a gnarly-ass design though.


I'm with family, so I'm unsure when I'll be available, but when I am, we'll cross swords and get super hero dolphins

What the art doesn't show is that he is in a fuckin hoodie, and he acts just like a tagger. And he's got a nifty move called "Doodle" where he copies the opponents ability, which can be very mean

Plus any pokemon that can learn U-Turn is always a plus to me


I am in Missouri


We deffo do have to at some point battle with post-game trained mons tho!

No, I noticed and learned all these things. I just haven't been using him much.

I think you guys misunderstood what I was saying here.

I'm saying that I wish people would focus more on the fact that the devs were obviously super rushed with this game and THAT'S why there are so many issues with it, rather than just poking fun at the game for having them.

Also I found all the purple stakes and no spoilers but that was tight.  Just the existence of that as a thing that you could do is tight.  Game of the year.  No notes.

I've basically made it my duty to hunt for them since the game started.  I found the ominous purple door that said it held the "tablets of ruination" and was like "I wanna go in there."  The game's all "Do whatever you want!" and I chose that.  I am almost 40 hours in, but so help me.  I have located my goal.


File: 1669358451302.png (68.16 KB, 1677x1378, 129:106, bloo goo.png) ImgOps Google

how would you say this game lends itself to the whole "nuzlocke challenge" thing? do you think it would be possible/enjoyable for this version?


File: 1669388324582.png (24.12 KB, 254x249, 254:249, Please.png) ImgOps Google


I think it has two drawbacks in that area.  The first is that because pokemon now walk around in the overworld, it's hard to declare one as the first one you've encountered, and it wouldn't necessarily be random even if you could.  You'd probably have to artificially roll for what pokemon you're allowed to catch in an area or something, especially if you're hoping for variety in nuzlocke playthroughs.

The second is that, at least for your first time through, you're liable to wander into an area 20-30 levels higher than you and you just die and the run is over.  That might be seen as a feature, I suppose, if you're really hardcore into it.

Yeah, permadeath and naming are the only rules you could really truly enforce here.And personally for me, half the fun of a Nuzlocke is the "first pokemon encountered" rule ensuring you get some bizarre, unpredictable team combinations.
