your opinion on pokémon swsh so far?
It’s pretty good! Having a great time! I feel like it could use some polish but it definetly feels like a solid, fun entry in the franchise.
I think all the new Pokemon look great and as well as the character designs. Dynamax raids are a blast and Dynamaxing feels fun– it kinda streamlines mega evolutions and z-moves into a single function. The Wild Area kind of blows my mind and I think is really cool. Camping is also really fun and cute.
I’ve seen a lot of the problems people scream about and I’ve either found them overblown or inconsequtial to my overall enjoyment of the game. The plot is pretty weak especially coming out of Sun and Moon which is probably my favourite one in the series so far. I kinda feel like stuff only starts happening way into the third act of the game which makes the overall pacing of the game kinda weird. While I do really like all the new Pokemon they do feel a little sparse and I kinda wish we could of gotten maybe like 10 or even 5 more, feels a little anemic as is.
It reminds me a lot of X and Y where it feels like a mildly wobbly baby step onto new hardware. I think the next mainline Pokemon game has the potential to really knock it out of the park if they learn from the mistakes and build on the positives of this one.
