The regular GameFreak staff didn't work on UltraSun and UltraMoon. It was entirely outsourced to young and inexperienced interns while the normal studio staff worked on the Switch game.

but it was Masuda that told them to not include the Battle Frontier and make the game easier
Just like how it can be Masuda telling them to make USUM just as shit.

There isn't even really an "A team" and a "B team." They pull out whoever's available to make whatever filler while other developers work on the higher task project. The only reason the so called "B team" games are better is because they're all working on top of games that are already finished. They're not making anything from scratch.
They're younger people within Gamefreak. That is not outsourcing. They are not interns. They're employees. They've worked on previous Pokemon games, they just don't have as much seniority and experience as the older staff, who are working on the Switch game.
The B-team ends up making a better game (Platinum/HGSS/B2W2/ORAS/USUM) overall than the A-team (DP/BW/XY/SM), so go B-team!
>make new game from scratch

>rehash an already released game and add minor content

I have seen in it here and many places. They think it's gonna be some out of body experience or something

Game freak has always been garbage with coding and graphics back even in red and blue days. The people who think Pokemon switch games are gonna have amazing graphics are delusional. I have switch already but expectations are very low because of how awful game freak is in coding, optimizing and graphics. Hope gameplay is good though

Nah, looks like playdough. If you want definitive anime graphics, look at DBFZ.
Faggot who cant handle the truth.
I just used Ga-Ole as a comparison because it, an arcade spinoff, has better graphics than the latest main series entry and it's a little sad.
Just let them get hyped. When the games eventually arrive the tears will be delicious.
But there are ways to replace chips in the GB/GBC games that allow the save file to be retained without a battery. Also, there are other time-based events like swarms and sales in RSE.

What visual style do you want for the Switch games? I feel like we're at a point where we can expect it to look like the anime, we were almost there on the 3DS

Shorter video that shows more stuff.

If Pokemon had these exact visuals I'd be very happy.
>How can a 3D game be made to look like 2D
>"cel shading"
You're a big dumb faggot autists and you should stop posting.
I feel like it needs more solid black outlines, as I'm having trouble making out details in some of the characters, but other than that I'd be happy with something like this. Breath of the Wild looks somewhat similar to that, and I'd also be perfectly happy with that art style.
>cel shading looks like 2D anime
You are so fucking retarded. I hope they do keep the cel shading for Pokemon Switch but it’s not gonna look anything close to OP’s image.
It's too bad the game itself looks like shit. I agree though the next game should visually look like that.

You're the "retart" here, moron.

Why would you bother with hyper training when you're using PKhex?
PKHeX can't transfer G7 Pokemon to G6, retard
Probably Op wants to know what happens if a Hyper trained mon goes back to XY,Probably it will keep the original Ivs

Family has its wonderful drama >>33885169 Gets it.

I pen few scenes about trainers treating their 'mons as family. Most of the time biological family is a structure already in place. HS is about the descendant of two characters written about, and there's quite a few jabs at her family ties being inconvenient.

Pokémon also have their families. Weak ones beaten up in the wild ones might have an angry parent nearby, or a horde of siblings to contend with. I don't think that would work well in a game setting due to levels and all, but it really shines in a story.

Additionally, some captured 'mons have their own families and communities they may wish to see. Part of being a responsible trainer is coming to terms with those things.

Last, and certainly not least, the bond between trainer and 'mon creates a family unit. In settings where groups of trainers are with one or two Pokémon, these travel companions sometimes (embarrassingly) fit traditional roles: the caring mother, the stern father, the unruly child, the crazy uncle, etc.
I'm fairly confident this is all of the art based art-anon has blessed us with:
>comprehensive collection
>thread's at 289 posts
Gallery should make the next thread's recap for maximum pimpage.

Research type reports on the effects of mega evolution on Pokemon, quite in depth. I say this because the Dex entries in sun/moon seem to depict it as either painful, taxing, or reducing a Pokemon to its base instinct to fight.

In universe explanation to why there isn't a mega evolution for everything as well.

/vp/, the time has come.

With confirmed and on its way, you may have noticed that speculation about future games has already devolved into a shitshow about whether the next games will be gen 8 games, or gen 4 remakes.

This marks the dawn of a new era, and era in which hoenn fans are no longer the least mature, most annoying and outspoken fans. Now, people who played DPP/HGSS as their first game will become the most maligned and aggressive fans of the franchise. "Sinnoh Confirmed" will be the rallying call of these degenerates, grasping at any vaguely related information in an attempt to prove to themselves and others that they can predict what the next games will be, due to a mix of wishful thinking and "m-muh patterns".

I don't claim to know what games will come next, nor do I care particularly whether they are remakes or not, but I am braced for a cancer much like what we saw after gen 5 and gen 6, before ORAS was announced.

As such, the torch must be passed. New terminology is required. Hoennbabies are no more. Ruby and Sapphire came out in 2002, anyone who was old enough to read then is probably over 18 now. We need not call them babies any longer. We will still mock them for not having experienced pokemania, but we will not stoop to inaccurate insults. Here is the new paradigm:

Started with Gen 1 - Patrician, Genwunner, Original, Normal
Gen 2 - Johtochildren
Gen 3 - Hoenntoddlers
Gen 4 - Sinnohbabies
Gen 5 - Unovafetuses

Here is the most autistic reply today
Do you have somebody read your posts out to you? Do you not know how to read?

Also, Gen 1 is not patrician, being old enough to have experienced pokemania is patrician. Genwunner is the term we use for people who insist gen 1 still holds up (it doesn't)
That's a good modification that could let us push sperm out farther, but it's just delaying the problem. At some point we will run out of earlier stages of development. The practice of locking these terms into place is categorically unsustainable. We must adapt.
Found the underage
Except gen 3 fans were never like that, and definitely nothing like the 6.5/7.5 fags, or even the genwunners.

The hype continues to build.

A bulky attacker that can actually take a hit, and gets a boost from it. Plus he has moves like Calm Mind and Roost so he could be a real nightmare of a wincon if you don't deal with him quickly enough.

I still don't really like Disguise even though your explanation made sense. Specifically, there's one very important thing you missed.
>If this Pokemon is a Mimikyu, it takes 0 damage the first time it is attacked in battle.
You'd have to change the ability or give Ariados a special bootleg version of it. It's not broken and it's not underpowered but I really can't imagine it being worth the mega slot when its movepool and stab combination aren't that great.

It's pretty solid all around, which is what you were going for. I like it.
