I've always really liked the way this card has looked since I was a kid, the way it's drawn is really appealing for some reason
uh to be fair>>14713
That Vaporean looks really nice, a lot of older rarities on cards look much nicer than newer ones, at least in the case of Yugioh. I understand you guys have full art and I wish we could get that but alas, sad day, and your rares look way nicer.
These are cool.
Yuno why are you so cool, it's unfair.
The cards are cool but the tablecloth is pretty bland.
Do you play the TCG competetively?
The world championships are relatively close to me and I'm confused on how to qualify for LCQs. I know you need Play Points, but it doesn't really define where can I get those. So do I just show up to my locals and if i attend enough local tournaments I qualify?
I think even having a tablecloth puts Yuno in a different class than most of us.
Tablecloths kind of aren't required if you have a good hardwood table and wipe it down after every meal.
Do I need one if my dining table is made of high-density polyethylene.
I recently got into the online TCG. I'm not very good at it and so I uninstalled it, but I learned two things
Theme deck bullshit is Mach Strike, what the fuck is Ascension Gible and who the fuck thought that was fair
I got a full art Lillie in a pack and she's cute.
No one plays theme anyway.
Sadly there's no rating-based matchmaking so you're stuck playing expanded and hoping you dont run into too many really good decks.

I haven't played since Gen 3.
However I brought out my old GBA SP recently and all my old 'mons are on there except my OG Sceptile.

>Have a shiny Crobat I stole from a Puerto Rican kid through scam trading on my street
>Have a shiny Tentacruel I caught on my sister's game that she let me keep on mine
If I had a DS Phat or any of the DS Pokemon games I'd trade them up to the current Gen. I own a 3DS and got Alpha Ruby and Omega Sapphire because of nostalgia but haven't played them much.
Which one? Ultraprism or the old one?
This is ultra prism one.

I just saw a picture of the new legendaries, no clue if its real though, didnt bother watching the direct. Is the sword one really just a big dog with a sword? like that one darksouls boss lol.
The raid fights/multiplayer battles is cool I just hope they aren't all piss easy.
I don't care if it makes me a nostalgiafag. These designs are crap.
Is the sword part of its body?
Pokémon is the biggest formulaic garbage franchise that people still get excited for. They have not broken the formula and the designs just keep getting worse. Not sure why anyone would be excited for this shit.
Is that the one with Danny DeVito?
I believe this happens to most series in the long run, partially due to a change of hands in designers and especially for a series like pokemon where there are so many designs you need to come up with, you'd eventually lose steam. Just look at the likes of Kamen Rider and Ultraman, the differences with the former is especially stark with the early (Showa) designs mostly incorporating insects/biological features against the more robotic modern designs. This is also evident in some JRPG series, FFVII (onwards, with the exception of IX and XII) was a huge departure from previous series with Tetsuya Nomura in charge of the designs and the SMT/Persona series after Kazuma Kaneko hands over design responsibilities to his proteges. I'd expand more on the topic of formulaic garbage but I'd rather not as it will just turn into a rant.
The nostalgiafag argument is lame as shit. It's just a shitty buzzword for when you can't defend shitty designs.
Designs were uninspired and ugly by Gen 4. Gen 3 was the last gen with all around good designs.>It's a clown penguin - totally not a lame torchic>It's a monkey with it's ass on fire - totally not a lame charmander>It's an ugly fucking nut turtle - totally not a lame bulbasaur>It's literally just a kemono Mewtwo - totally not a kemono>Literally just sharpedo but with legs>Ugly shuckle wannabe>Ugly water fox with a life preserver>Ugly beaver>Kimba the electric lion>Testicle skunk>Taillow but dumber>Skitty but dumber>Nosepass with a bigger nose and a Jewish beard>Magneton; BUT BEES>Pachycephalosaurus>Bunny kemono>Parrot>Hungry hungry hippo>Sleep deprived boxing toad
Only designs that aren't fucking terrible in Gen 4 are Drifloon and Shieldon and their evolutions and Weavile.
I can't speak for any designs post Gen 4 as the only games I've played since then have been the remakes of Gens 2 and 3.
>>21826>Gen 3 was the last gen with all around good designs
this is how I can tell Gen 3 is the last gen you played and probably your favorite generation
Isn't Sugimori still the character designer?
yeah but now there's an american guy designing pokemon
all is lost
i'm convinced they sit around with most of this sketched out so they can quickly pump a drawing out

This girl is cute at least but they've got a long way to go to surpass Sun and Moon in the cute girl department.>>21805>>21806
Hah, it does remind me of Sif a bit>>21811
I have played every game up through X and Y and I think they've managed to change the formula enough each time to keep it interesting. And even if they didn't it's a formula that I find well and truly addicting so it's hard for me to complain. As for the designs I can agree they've gotten worse overall, and certainly there are a lot more misses than hits nowadays. But the whole point of Pokemon is to make a team out of your favorites, and every game I've played has had more than enough cool Pokemon available for me to do that. Not to mention as the Pokemon designs get worse the girls designs seem to be getting better.>>21826
Heck you Torterra and Croagunk are great. Also Drifloon is cool but you're forgetting Frosslass, Abomasnow, the Eeveelutions, Gallade, Mismagius, the Lake Trio, and Shaymin. All of which I think are pretty good Pokemon. I can agree that gen 4 is one of the weaker ones though. But Gen 5 after it was actually great! If you can ignore it having some of the most atrocious bad designs in the series, it also has some of the best good ones, in my opinion.>>21830
Is he? It's amazing to me that he has gone from making what are basically just caricatures of normal animals in gen 1 to tacking on the amount of random embellishments he does nowadays. It's a buzzword on /vp/ but overdesigned really is a good way to put it. I think gen 2 really was the peak of Pokemon design because the designs were still pretty simple and not outlandish, but they had just enough character to them to make them feel really fantastical and fun to catch. 3 was great for a similar reason, actually.>>21831
That was just Golurk no? I assumed that was a one-off thing since gen 5 took place in Pokemon NYC. Is he still working for them?
My favorite gen had the best designs, and I stopped playing Pokemon when the designs went to shit. But that somehow nullifies my criticisms rather than supporting them? This is why the nostalgiafag argument is dumb as shit.
I'm not saying Gen 3 is flawless, I'm just saying it only has one or two stinkers (Sableye being one), whereas Gen 4 is virtually all stinkers except the five or so I listed that are acceptable.
An ugly fucking monkey with it's ass on fire and a stupid goofy beaver being a terrible designs isn't nostalgia wearing off, it's fact.
There's no reason to remain neutral on terrible or good designs when they are terrible or good.>>21838
Wannabe venusaur and an ugly politoed. They are low tier designs at best.>you're forgetting Frosslass, Abomasnow, the Eeveelutions, Gallade, Mismagius, the Lake Trio, and Shaymin.
Only ones I'm forgetting out of those are Mismagius and Gallade, all the others are terrible and not worth commenting on, especially Froslass.
Mismagius and Gallade aren't terrible but only because they borrow from designs of good Gens.
Leafeon is the worst Eeveelution of any Gen. I'll give you Glaceon, though.
Hey fuck you Sableye sucks but he's my bro.
>>21851>My favorite gen had the best designs, and I stopped playing Pokemon when the designs went to shit. But that somehow nullifies my criticisms rather than supporting them?
yes, because your entire ""criticism"" (see: pointless whining that you're older and the series isn't entirely still about you) are that "old good new bad"
>An ugly fucking monkey with it's ass on fire and a stupid goofy beaver being a terrible designs
yes but the horse with its ass on fire and a literal rat are the pinnacle of great designs, all because old good, new bad, right?
>>21851>it only has one or two stinkers
I mean by your logic Furret is just stupid Linoone, Beautifly is shitty Butterfree, Slaking is Snorlax but a monkey, Hariyama is fat Machoke, Aggron is discount Rhydon, Milotic is Gyarados but pretty, Delcatty is Persian with a wig, and so on and so forth. And don't get me started on things like Ludicolo, Exploud, or Nosepass…
Also I'm with >>21853
Sableye is cool.
I was just saying his design is probably the weakest of Gen 3.>>21854>your entire ""criticism"" (see: pointless whining that you're older and the series isn't entirely still about you) are that "old good new bad"
It's like you didn't even read my posts. I complimented the few Gen 4 designs that were good and insulted one of the few Gen 3 designs that was bad. That's the opposite of "old good new bad"
Honestly you just sound like a contrarian idiot.

I'll say it again. They're lazy, uninspired designs.

Your sacred cows aren't amazing.>Look at the fucking lazy goofy faces and anatomy on the left compared to the more than acceptable anatomy on the right, and say it again.
I'll say as an actual artist (something you probably aren't) that you don't know anything about anatomy and trying to apply it here to bolster your argument is hilarious. We're back on the potshot of you being a fucking idiot.>You're a Pokemon hipster.
You're the hipster. You're whinging about a game series you don't even play because it's not like it was when you started. If you don't like it, don't enjoy it, shut the fuck up and move on from Pokemon. Nobody wants to hear another braindead retard like you, hyped up on your childhood memories like the knuckledragging ape that you are, spout your retarded bullshit about how "WAAH POKEMON WAS BETTER WHEN I WAS A KID IT SUCKS NOW I DONT EVEN PLAY IT ANYMORE THOUGH :("
There's been a pretty clear trend since gen 1 of designs getting more elaborate and embellished but if you ask me that's just the development of the brand from this game about catching animals into a recognizable distinct product with its own design philosophy. It's really your preference, but a lot of the gen 1 and 2 designs aren't particularly inspired. I personally think gen 3 struck the best balance but I don't really care to get into you guys' argument.

Again, I stopped playing after the series got bad. How is that a problem? Doesn't that just make you the person with shit taste since you're willingly consuming garbage?

They are objectively better to their counterparts on the left. A horse that's main and fur is made of fire isn't a lazy or uninspired design. A goofy monkey that's ass is on fire for no artistic reason other than Charmander and Cyndaquil did it is a lazy and uninspired design.>I'll say as an actual artist (something you probably aren't) that you don't know anything about anatomy and trying to apply it here to bolster your argument is hilarious. We're back on the potshot of you being a fucking idiot.
Oh please, bestow upon me your artistic talents and link me your dA or Tumblr, van Gogh, so I can gaze upon your obviously beautiful creations. You're a fucking idiot if you think bidoof's anatomy is superior to rattata's. Rattata's lambs look like they can actually support his body and his paws/claws look like an actual animals and not even necessarily a rat's, whereas bidoof's limbs are ovals with shitty little squiggles at the bottom. Bidoof looks like a fucking parody and makes rattata look like a top tier design by contrast, but go ahead and try to defend bidoof's stupid stubby ugly limbs and anatomy, I'm fucking eager to hear you try.

Wrong, a hipster associates with the latest trends (newest generations) and usually goes against mainstream (mainstream opinion is generally that Pokemon designs have gotten lazy and poor), you are sincerely and truly by definition a hipster with absolutely zero self awareness.
I can talk about whatever the fuck I want. As said I still play and still enjoy Gens 1-3 and their remakes, so you have even less of a fucking argument.
"Nintendo went with an objectively lazier and shittier art style to make their already increasingly lazy designs look even worse. That means you can't criticize the bad designs!"
Poor Hipster-san, living in delusion and having shit taste. Making up strawman arguments to defend himself because he thinks he's cool and hip.
>>21863>Again, I stopped playing after the series got bad. How is that a problem?
I literally don't fucking care. I never said this was a problem. Why include this in your post?>Doesn't that just make you the person with shit taste since you're willingly consuming garbage?

Yes, you seem like a clearly well adjusted individual I want to give my social media to.>You're a fucking idiot if you think bidoof's anatomy is superior to rattata's.
Like I said, you're not an artist and you're a fucking retard. You don't understand what anatomy is and you're just saying "OLD GOOD NEW BAD"
The rest of this is you whinging again about stupid irrelevant shit, but it's honestly astounding to me that you're trying to make a "B-BUT IT WOULDNT WORK IN REAL LIFE!" argument in a series thats called "Pocket Monsters". You know, monsters that are supposed to fit in your pocket? They're not real world animals.>mainstream opinion is generally that Pokemon designs have gotten lazy and poor
THE MAINSTREAM MASSES AGREE WITH ME! SEE, WE'RE RIGHT!
Then why is Pokemon still the 2nd best selling game franchise of all time?>I can talk about whatever the fuck I want.
Okay? Why are you including your post full of retarded shit that has nothing to do with it? You don't like Pokemon. Just because you like the older entries and are a total genwunner nostalgiafag, doesn't mean you like Pokemon. And if you actually thought OR/AS was good, you're just about as fucking stupid as I said you were.
But seriously, get the fuck off Samachan. If you want to resort to acting like the 4channer you are, go back. You're in better company there.

What's your favorite Pokemon Yuno?

or something like that>>21870
uhh my favorite over all is probably ampharos but i like mimikyu a lot lately, its a cute pokemon and i found it fun to play with when i did my nuzlocke of ultra moon
oh i like piplup a lot too, thats a cute one
right now im just hoping that if the new gen is story based like the last one that we can skip the cutscenes
im probably just gonna nuzlocke sword when it comes out anyways so if i have to restart i hope that i can skip that stuff
Fair enough, I'll stop.
i just told you to cut it out, you're derailing the thread at this point
Hello Samachan, I too, enjoy a rousing bit of Pokemon
come down to my yard and I'll show you a great porky man
oh but i mostly just like lillie
if i could put her in a monster ball and then continually sexually assault her over and over that'd be great
i could go weeks without doing it but she wouldnt be able to tell, i'd release her and immediately start over again
>>21872>uhh my favorite over all is probably ampharos
Me too! Good taste. One of these days when 3DS emulation is good (is it yet?) I will play Sun and Moon and their sequels. For now I am just very excited for the new games because it has been too long since X and Y for me.>Nuzlocke
Most fun I ever had playing Pokemon was a semi-randomized nuzlocke of Soul Silver, I should do something similar again.
Is there a doohickey for determining what are your favourites like tohosort for pokemon?
i dunno i think 3DS emulation is good enough, you should give it a try regardless
and yeah nuzlockes are a lot of fun, they're my favorite ways to play the games now. i feel really bad when a team member dies. one of my favorite nuzlockes i did was a leafgreen one because i got incredibly lucky and caught a pikachu in the forest and managed to keep him and evolve him into a Raichu and he lived the whole run, I think everyone but that Raichu wiped out on the Green fight
anyways i dont want to keep you guys from arguing but please dont turn this website into a "you're from there! die" because that will be super lame thanks
Wait actually it's on github so if anyone has a server lying around and wants to make one feel free so I can find out if charizard is still my favorite.
oh i've seen that but with fate servants before
I was gonna ask about PokeGirls next but Yuno is way ahead of me
Tell me about your favorites in that category too Sama>>21877>oh but i mostly just like lillie
I want to say my favorite is one of the SM girls because god Lana is hot but it's gotta be Shauna for her being such a sweetheart to the MC in X and Y>I'm really amazed when I think about the five of us that were chosen in Kalos! I mean, if I hadn't been chosen, I wouldn't have met you, <player's nickname>! ♪
Is probably the closest the games I've played have come to anything remotely romantic.
Iris and Jasmine are great too but they have limited characterization in the games and the only other Pokemon thing I've consumed is the early Pokemon Special manga.>if i could put her in a monster ball and then continually sexually assault her over and over that'd be great
Yeah and I'm the pedo…
Whoa, I remember hanging out on dragonflycave in like 2005. Fun times.
Iris' big dress is so cool
Iris is so cool…
Shame she's apparently annoying in the anime
Oh yeah and another discussion prompt since you have awakened the Pokemon autist within me: Do you guys nickname your Pokemon?>>21880
My only qualm with Nuzlockes is that it can become tempting and then quickly boring to grind a lot but that can be mitigated with some self control. I used to read a silly dramatic webcomic about someones RBY nuzlocke run, I remember thinking it was really well done and had great watercolor art.>i think 3DS emulation is good enough
I didn't know it existed at all, I am out of the loop!
When I was a younger kid I didn't but by adolescence I started naming them after historical people and anime characters and by high school I pretty much rolled with all female parties with cute names that I got pretty attached to. Would spend hours thinking of a name sometimes. Still do in some RPGs.
>I am out of the loop!
Uh, you posted in the game thread right while they were talking about it…
She's so cute and pretty and floofy!!!>>21888
We are the same then! As a young kid I never did but by like gen 4 I started naming them after anime characters or random things. I remember naming my team after K-ons during one playthrough. These days I just try to come up with fun or thematic names.>Uh, you posted in the game thread right while they were talking about it…
You are right, I am just forgetful. I do read every samapost but some of them fade away kinda quick…

Mawile, forever Mawile. After that comes my bro Empoleon from the DP era and after that there are many others. Have played at least one game of every gen so have many favorites across all of them.
Serena is my top, followed by May/Mizuki and gym leaders such as Candice and Roxie. Very juicy franchise on that regard so there's a ton I could say I'm rather fond of.
>Do you guys nickname your Pokemon?
Yes. I was very reluctant to do so since forever, until I got that free Pokémon game from that one promotion in the XY era and decided to go crazy (it's also the first time I played with the female character). After that decided to nickname everything and interestingly I got more attached to certain pokémon just by doing that so I got to enjoy the games even more.>>21877
That sounds very nice, even more if she has that grumpy face like in that other image.
Nice, Mawile is awesome. I also used Empoleon in DPP, which was also the time I was most into the franchise and got into competitive battling for a bit.>>21915

This is incontestable. Shirona and Lusamine almost make me want to pick up the new games, but I think that's a tell that the designers are adding waifus to make up for the flaws in other departments.
>That was just Golurk no? I assumed that was a one-off thing since gen 5 took place in Pokemon NYC. Is he still working for them?
You made me curious enough to check. No, he has drawn more pokemon and he is the art director of pokemon sword and shield.>>21857
If your idea of convincing me that the current designs aren't bad because what actually got worse was their design philosophy, I got bad news for you…
This looks like a screenshot of PSG or something.

Is this the one with the infamous Grovyle, Dialga and Cresselia? Or is that another Mystery Dungeon
Last thing I played was Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon
Honestly I have way more fun running Nuzlockes in HG/SS, Platinum or Black/White/B2/W2 than I do with any of the past two gens of Pokemon.
I guess I'm just getting old.
I played through Ultra Sun and it was okay. I have no plans to play the switch one as it is because I don’t have a switch.
Yeah, Explorers is the gen IV PMD game. Rescue Team is excellent as well, if a bit rougher around the edges. I've probably got a thousand or two hours between the two games. Great stuff.

I can assure you it's not about age. XY feels a bit boring for some reason. And the next generation as well has its problems and is really slow with a clunky online mode to boot so no wonder the nuzlockes don't feel as fun.>>24301
Same, also I do transfer my mons so being limited on that regard is no fun.
That said would any of you be up for a multi battle?
I played every mainline game up until XY when my 3DS broke sometime during the postgame. Looking forwards to giving the Switch game a shot but I'll be sad if I can't catch my favorites. My only interaction with the series as of late has been art and porn
. I have a randomized SS rom on my PC that I've been meaning to nuzlocke again for a while though.>>24308
I don't have a 3DS as I said but I'm up for playing on Shoddy Battle or Pokemon Online or Smogon or whatever the kids use these days if anyone wants to sometime.
Smogon would be the best bet, I just realized my teams were wiped after deleting cookies not too long ago, so will have to prepare some for a later time. Also I just caught wind about this popular Pokémon MMO but have yet to try it, wonder if it's not riddled with hellish grinding.
>>24314>this popular Pokémon MMO
I have seen that too! The threads on /vp/ make it look pretty fun but I haven't looked into it in depth.
The PokeMMO thing? I initially thought it looked kind of like Pokemon Crater from back in the day but it seems it's actually meant to be like, a multiplayer reimplementation of the mainline games in a desktop client or something. Seems like a cool project to watch if nothing else.
I don't play anything pokemon anymore. If it counts, I used to play on Smogon during…whatever the last one before Fairy was. Probably B2W2.
Black/White was my last game, in any case.

Yeah that one. At least it seems it has some nice features, like going to different regions, bringing back seasons and the legendary pokémon actually being legendary and there only being one for everybody. Might give it try eventually.
>>24339>legendary pokémon actually being legendary and there only being one for everybody
What do you mean by this? Are there multiples of legendaries in the new games or do you mean in the MMO there's only one single instance of each one for all the players collectively?
>>24343>there's only one single instance of each one for all the players collectively?
This one, so if you catch a Rayquaza you can use it for some hours, maybe a day, and if you lose battles, log out or time runs out the pokemon gets bored and goes away, awaiting a new trainer to encounter it randomly again and thus avoiding people holding them hostages or just being OP for all eternity. At least from my understanding of how it worked.
How do you train legendaries then? Are they all level 100 from the start or something?
It doesn't seem you can train them and don't know about the level they're at but from what I've seen you at very least need some level 50s to even have a chance of catching them.
If you were a Pokemon, what would your moves be?

>>24630Yes, he's forever young
and absolutely true, trending on japanese twitter too. Seems like while underwhelmed with the battle, people at least find it liberating to a degree after so long.
That's some serious QUALITY right there
What now though? Because the reason Ash actually went and travelled all over like 10 regions was to become a Champion. Can he even travel anymore, as a Champion? Would he, even?
Don't worry, both he and everyone else will forget when he goes to the next place.
That is Ash. He's just the kind of person who manages to look young way into his thirties but as soon as he hits 38 he morphs into a short leathery skinned creepy ossan still trying to pass off as one of the cool kids.
Notice the squarer jaw, thicker eyebrows, tan, loose skin and flabby chin.
I read that the next season is going to be titled simply "pocket monsters" and will feature all 7 regions. Sounds like they might be going for some kind of reboot or at least a different approach to the anime.
I suppose so, but then who's going to be the main character? Some new kid? Red? Hikari? Oak?
What happened to Gary actually, anyway? He became champion and then just sort of fucked off the face of the Earth?
He got his doctorate and became an eminent researcher and part time gym leader or something. He shows up in the later seasons in a lab coat and does research into electromagnetism with his electivire and stuff.
keep in mind he's also still 10 years old

I'll say it's a girl based on the eyelashes.
I'll consider that a guy seeing as the shounen protagonist design trends are moving more and more into the effeminate wide-eyed weakling nancy boy. One of the reasons why I've given up on modern shounenshit, everyone is giving up on appealing to actual kids and spreading fujo bait all over instead.

Funny thing is gardevoir is the embrace pokemon but if you hug one you get stabbed in the chest with a big horn thing.
Furret sucks balls but pokemon colosseum made it one of my favorites. The little butt plug was the first shadow pokemon I purified and carried me in so many fights with her iron tail and STAB strength/return, and that was on top of being absolutely adorable in 3D.
Man now I feel like going back and playing through it again. If I'd actually kept up with the games since after gen 4 I could've transferred my Furret bro all the way to the newest game or something. I'm pretty sure I still have the same old save file from 2004 on my madkatz memory card plugged into the gamecube wherever I left it.
I probably shouldn't though. The most precious memories also tend to be the most fragile.
One of your most precious memories is playing Pokemon Colosseum?
Yeah I had a good time with it. It was stadium but with a whole traditional JRPG mode stuffed in built on a fully-functional pokemon ruleset.
You got a problem with that?
Do it, or if you don't want to kill your save you can just emulate it if you have the power to do so. Alternatively just enjoy the music and the memories. These still get me pumped up to this day.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_9y0oJ9dFEhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpR3WCFoLgA
Fifteen years later and those baselines are still fresh in my mind. Good shit man. I wonder if the game music has gotten better in the mainline games. I can hardly remember any tracks from gen 4 other than the HGSS rearrangements.

I always really liked the mishmash sci-fi weird western motif of this game and how you start off as an already experienced guy with pokemon that can score oneshots. And the little details like how your starters already have some experience past their starting level and how the NPCs look at you as you walk around really added a lot for a game back then. The experience of the Genius Sonority devs really shows.

Well, leak week is in full swing with some people already playing the gen 8 games and revealing some mons
Also the fact that you don't get conventional starters until way later. This was a good game. Never got to play gale of darkness but it apparently kept the good stuff.
are these from that one pokemon knockoff mmo game that's definitely positively not influenced by pokemon?
The MC in this game has such a non-Pokemon looking design. I like her. Had a blast with this game as kid.>>25648
Really hoping that /vp/ is right about those final evos being not real, I don't like them much. Sobble completely loses the weird emo theme it has in it's mid-stage so something has gotta be off.
I think that one was called Tem Tem or something like that? Anyways these are supposedly from the gen 8 main games.>>25652
They might be fake, as the stuff from that image came from 2 sources, and one of them admitted they were merely reposting stuff and probably mixing stuff of their own. Who knows.
These look so fucking bad, but that's par the course for Pokemon these days
Not saying I'm a fan of these designs but people say that every gen, and I'm guilty of it every time too. But even gen 7 has grown on me and this one probably will too. There's never been a gen where there are zero designs I like so even if what's shown isn't great it's not the end of the world. I kinda like the little purple guy honestly. James Turner has to go though.
I more so meant the starters, but I've thought every single starter evo since Gen 3 was absolutely awful
The meowth looking thing looks neat
The purple thing in the left corner looks like shit and I don't think it's real, it's way too off style for Pokemon, i could definitely be wrong though

Actually that's the same reason the Mystery Dungeon games were so great. Spin-offs and side games that adapt the actual core mechanics of the system rather than just some other game reskinned to look familiar are like love letters to the fans.

Were these pictures taken by Michael J Fox?
It helps that since there was a limited pool from where to choose from, the games were balanced with only those options in mind plus some fun scattered around, like the Mirror B. battle. Ironic I say this since the cut dex is one of the many reasons of why I don't feel like playing gen 8.
About the RPG stuff I don't really know, but I think the gamecube had Phantasy Star Online among it's titles? I remember people buying special keyboards from Japan to play it years later. >>25688
They were deliberately taken like this to "keep them mysterious", so at this point it's better to wait for game screenshots or datamine info.
Yeah the limited selection was one of the best parts of the experience, especially how it gave exposure to to gen 2 pokemon before FRLG came out later that year. I think it's normal to not want it in a mainline game though since they're very different kinds of games. The series as a compounding collection of characters is just not sustainable in the long run. If they expected to keep making games for 25 years they should've permanently purged the dex every two or three gens from the start.
Well on top of PSO and Pokemon there was also Tales of Symphonia and Baten Kaitos and Paper Mario and Mega Man X and my favorite was the Skies of Arcadia port. It wasn't the worst ever for RPGs especially compared to the Xbox but the PS2 had whole boatloads of them. I'm still going through my PS2 backlog ten years since I finally went and got one.

That's the OG EVA, this is the Rebuild EVA
Also was the only way to really get some gen 2 stuff back then if I recall correctly, mainly the starters. And well, the thing that killed it for me definitely was the need for suscriptions. Holding stuff hostage without being able to use it or even take it down just isn't appealing.
Ahh Tales of Symphonia yes yes, I do remember that one. And without a doubt it seems the PS in general was the king for RPGs, with all the Capcom, Square Enix, Bandai, etc stuff going around. I remember people being crazy about Disgaea (which I never got to play) but now that I've seen comparisons about it having a spiritual anime in the currently airing Iruma-kun one I can sort of see the appeal.
I don't know if it was from PS2 or PS but one I really liked a lot was Vagrant Story, and since I didn't have a memory card back then I had to replay over and over from the start trying to be faster and avoid getting killed, yet it happened frequently. Then once I got one I still died often due to poor item management, getting cocky trying to rush and not understanding what I was really doing. Fun memories, and it also had a really nice soundtrack.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U-s4vRyzEfchttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weYL2ww1uDUhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5SoO-2iHgKE
Now we have the eternal Rotom that won't shut up which I think just became a smartphone. How time flies.
You could get one of the starters in the FRLG postgame but that was later in the year. I think there were a few pokemon you still couldn't actually get even with the combination of the gamecube games and Sevii Islands but I can't remember which and I do remember seeing people with completed national dexes, though I also don't remember if they were AR/gamesharked.
What do you mean subscriptions? The new games?
Vagrant Story was on PS, it was from the same creators as the Ogre Battle/Tactics Ogre, Final Fantasy Tactics and subsequently FFXII. The setting for VS is the same the as the two FFs, the world of Ivalice. I didn't get to play VS much as I never owned the game personally but FFT is one of my favorite games ever, the OST is great too. Disgaea was great, at least the first 2 that I've played and completed. I've tried playing the newer ones but couldn't quite get into it with the exception of D2 which is the sequel to the original Disgaea. NIS' other games are interesting and fun too, although I've heard that they aren't doing too well in recent years.
>>25707>What do you mean subscriptions? The new games?
Yes, the Home thing coupled with the cut of course.

Oh also I am very disappointed that they wasted such a cool idea with the fossils just to make an epic funny joke. Kinda feel the same way about a lot of regional forms too.
What did they do with fossils?
You can find two top halves and two bottom halves, and then combine either top with either bottom. It's a reference to how paleontologists sometimes mismatch fossils to create creatures that never really existed. Except Game Freak made all 4 combinations comically mismatched visual jokes that look like they want to die. It's a double shame because the designs for the halves individually would look great as normal fossil Pokemon should they be completed, especially the raptor.

I thought they were supposed to be like English industrialists with smokestack tophats. Kinda lame if they're actually purifying the air…

Nah they're not purifying the air. Dunno where anon got that from.
It's some anti-pollution thing they're going with for Galar, showcasing how bad pollution is or whatever.
It's also why Corsola
is the color of a dying coral reef and looks miserable.
That's pretty accurate for a region based on Britain. I like Sir Weezingston.
>>26021>purifying the air
Mind explaining why the hell they look like fucking smokestacks then? Are they some kind of anti-powerplant? Because the white smoke coming off the top of power plants usually isn't 'purifying' the air in any meaningful capacity.
The designs are so fucking bad this gen holy shit I'm so glad I dropped pokemon
It's because Great Britain was the first industrial country in the world, so it's a homage to that
But industrialism is generally considered to pollute, not purify. I mean, whether or not you think they should be bringing real life politics into Pokemon of all series aside, it doesn't make much sense at all.
It's not political at all lol
You're looking into it way too much, it's halfassed like everything in the game
I guess? I dunno man maybe I've gotten retarded as I've grown older
I just don't think it's anything big or a statement; they clearly put very little effort into this game. I don't see it as anything other than "lol what if English Weezing CLEANED the air instead of like how Kanto Weezing pollutes it lol"
Having a smaller list of pokemon is a good step forward. Adding 100 or so pokemon each generation was the one gimmick that got stale by the third generation, more so when everyone knows only 20 or 30 of all 6541984651 pokemon are worth anything for multiplayer fights (no I don't care about shitty tourneys and e-sports bullshit). Your roster should be shaped to your preferences and represent you, but that aspect is such a failure people rather customize their player's clothes instead. Give me a small pokedex with crazy pokemon customization. Let me equip pidgeot with thunder stone and make him immune to lightning. Make normal type into a type that you can turn into any other in a jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none kind of deal. Surfing pikachu. Inter-species fusions/evolutions like Slowbro. If you have to increase the pokedex past 200, add 10 at most per new gen (not including cover box legendaries).
Bloating the pokedex was the greatest mistake gamefreak ever made and distracted people from how stale pokemon has been all this time. 400 pokemon is already too big a number for me and an obvious sign of compromise. They should have doubled down and shortened it all the way back to 150 again. I don't care if the graphics are shit or the gameplay has a few inconsistencies like the fighting background not matching the overworld. I don't care how ridiculous it looks when a pokemon an inch tall one-shots a giant overhyped by a gym leader. Pokemon red and blue had a lot of stupid shit and that didn't stop the franchise from growing to where it is today. If anything, sword/shield gives me hope gamefreak will make pokemon interesting again.
I suppose that makes sense in light of the fact that the new region just outright has a shiny Weezing as a 'new' pokemon.
What the hell is a 'Jeezing' anyway? Weezing is clearly a pun on coughing and wheezing, the only think I can think of with Jeezing is "Jeez, what's wrong with your creative team?" What does it have to do with anything about the pokemon?
>>26042> If anything, sword/shield gives me hope gamefreak will make pokemon interesting again.
Blatant laziness gives you hope that they'll make a game series that hasn't been good in 19 years good again?
I'm kind of amazed you've never been exposed to the stareotype of Britain as a cold, dirty place with ever-present smog that's full of factories run by robber barons in top hats. It's in like 90% of books set in the country.
It's too late now for them to go either way without a backlash. I'm unhappy about the cut pokedex but I probably wouldn't be if they'd been doing this since gen 2.
But that's the stereotype I'm working off of, and normally you don't reverse stereotypes when referencing them.
What makes you think it's some kind of statement then? Weezing always ate smog and dust and things. This one is a fairy type so it does something nice too. It's for kids, man.
No, gen 4 (namely DP with the infamous 2 fire types for normal gameplay) and 5 already proved it's boring as hell to be limited to a mere hundred of mons as you have to consider there's 17 types across the board and your strategies and matchups end up being limited to no end. Also the team variety and customization has always been an option for 20 years, whether that works or not is up to you and the pokemon themselves, and you're delusional if you think people won't gravitate to what's the strongest/works best no matter how limited and casual the game is and whether we have 1000 or 30 as options. Plus one of the reasons it got so big is exactly due to the pokémon variety and the merchandise surrounding them.
And this is not the R&B era, they're now a multibillionarie company on hardware that can run the witcher 3, so having shit graphics, bad gameplay, boring gimmicks, poor performance, empty towns, a paywall for online, no postgame, bad music and uninspired new pokemon while having removed key features, moves and most importantly, more than half of what is the staple of the franchise while costing the same as polished games should not be tolerated by any means.>>26043
That one is a joke using a random drawing representing their hats as onaholes obviously, hence the Jeez as in jizz. The original one is simply "Galarian Weezing" and they just have top hats that emit smoke.
>>26054>that one is a joke
You see how bad it is when I thought an onahole/leaky penis was potentially the actual design.
i think that one's on you dude

Do the models in this game make anybody else kind of uncomfortable? They remind me a lot of miis…
They make me uncomfortable in my pants.
I don't know, the low-poly models with the flat matte faces just look weird to me for some reason. I never played a non-sprite-based main series pokemon though so maybe it's just me.
If anyone wants to play here's my friend code. SW-0491-3126-7043

Here's the party so far. No healing items and when pokemon faint they're dead. First death Nickit, died to a Chewtle using tackle.

Uncomfortable, you say?

Whatever would make you draw that conclusion?
How is the game? From the gameplay videos I saw it looks kinda clunky and slow-paced.
I'm having fun. I'm not that far in but it seems the exact same as any other pokemon game.
It's a fun game. It has it's problems as I'm sure everyone has heard countless times but I had a good enough time with it. Being away from Pokemon during most of the 3DS era probably made me enjoy it more but just collecting Pokemon and raising a team is still addicting, even if the game is railroaded and comically easy. My trainer is hecking cute too.
Also I appreciated how they gave the gym leaders some more characterization and personality in this one, that's a trend I'd love to see continue. Bea is super great.>>26152>>26169
I love the Eevee kid, she's adorable.

I only just realized this glaceon is crying. But crying about what?
It read how some of our posters feel about Pokemon

Does anyone here have Pokemon Shield? I'm pretty close to finishing the Pokedex but I need some of the exclusives
