Even reddit isn't amused.
Where is Joe/serebiifag's reaction? I just got here and I'm laughing way too fucking muchHow big was the shitstorm?
>>35888070Just wait, someone's going to argue that "it's even that big of a deal" or "it helps new fans learn about type effectiveness". Even if you end up receiving x100 Master Balls in this game, somebody will always find a way to defend it.
>>35888070another nail in the coffin!I'm glad this thing's going to get absolutely shit on by critics.
>>35888096Joe's gf loves it so he's forced to suck it up
People are seriously freaking out about this game way too much. They literally said this is going to be a game for casual fans of Pokemon and more tailored for those who played a lot of Pokemon GO. Yes, it looks extremely easy and hand-holdy and yes there's no wild pokemon battles... if you're upset about that then your expectations are extremely misplaced. Pokemon is already pretty easy (been playing since the Gameboy days) so them saying that this will be a casual game pretty much tailored for Pokemon GO players should have already told you this wasn't gonna be like the usual Pokemon game. Like I just don't understand what you guys were really expecting.
>>35888129Joe is whipped! WHIPPED!
>>35888120>I'm glad this thing's going to get absolutely shit on by critics.Not sure about that, they'll just dump a 7.5/10 on it at worst, they'll be paid to say that, or they'll get some GOfag to review it instead. Even then there's probably going to be another 7.8 too much water meme to latch on to.
Who is Joe?
>>35888120The majority of reddit users aren't paid because there are so many and their word usually carries no weight individually. Critics on the other hand, well get ready for another 90/100 on metacritic
>>35888170lurk for 10,000 years before posting
>>35888132they just want to be mad, it's the only time vp agreeslet the children have fun, I say
>>35888180Um fella, just because I don't know who some faggot youtuber is doesn't mean I haven't been here significantly longer than you.
>>35888129XY, SM and USUM all generally got 8-9/10 from critics, i doubt they will even moderately shit on it, if at all.
>>35888132I'd say it's as much assblasted kantoniggers who thought the ebin kanto remake they were getting turned out to be a GO clone, instead of the start of Gen VIII. Anyone with half a brain knew that's what these games would be, even with the noise coming from Game Freak on top of that about the future of the core series.
>>35888190Thats not nice for the children.
>>35888225not our responsibility
>>35888132This is going to sell well and they'll casualize or not spend as much time on the main games. You apologistfags will listen eventually.
>>35888120>Pokemon just became a whole lot easier...and that's a good thing!
>>35888070I unironically like that.
>>35888833>and here's why...
>>35888891>with 10 reasons
>>35888911>with a video over 10 minutes
>>35888070>intentionally going on reddit and agreeing with them to OWN THE GAMERS
>>35888129C U C KUCK
>>35888190>let the children have fun, I sayI'd prefer for the children to actually be challenged and not grow up as retards.
>>35888070Absolutely pathetic. All we can do, is hope GF designed the 2019 game to be for older gamers expecting more of a challenge. Knowing how incompetent they are, this probably isn't the case.
>>35888070/r/pokemon seems to be alot quieter thatn usual. Maybe a ban party has just happened.
>reddit thread deleted take your negativity elsewhere :^)
>OP screencaps Reddit>people don't immediately tell him to fuck offI have no words.
>>35888132Because if it does too well, it's going to seep into the other main games in the future. Literally the only good thing from these games that should be put in future games are the ridable Pokemon, while everything else belongs in the trash but knowing GF, it will be the opposite.
here is the unedited cap
>>35889008is this real?
>>35888985I think they are just dissapointed.Or they left the subreddit after LGPE trailer
>>35888987b-but it's to own the pokemon gamers heh, gamers
>>35888190>I will call all the others children to make myself look smarter
>>35889015pretty much all that left there are a bunch of drone posts.
>>35889014fresh from twittertwitter doesn't lie
>>35888986OP of that thread here. Apparently threads like those have to be text posts. No idea why. Made a new thread though.
>>35888201Joe is the creator of Serebii.net, one of the most popular places to go for Pokemon news.
>>35888201You’re obviously ridiculously new here and to Pokémon in general. Go back to where you came from.
>>35889121>OP of that thread herekill yourself my dude
>>35889203Not him but I've been coming to this board since XY and this is the first time I've heard of this guy. Yeah I use Serebii but I've never cared to know who made it because who the fuck cares about some dumb faggot website owner.
>>35888120This game is perfect for game journalist though, you don't have to think at all. They'll love it
>>35888860you are unironically retarded
>>35888833this headline is easier to predict than what shitty move lgpe will take next
>>35889258>since XYYeah, you're amazingly new and casual.
>>35889258>since xy>never heard of joe merrickThen you don't really spend too much time here. There's at least one thread a week about Joe.
>>35889354I've been playing the game much longer retard, and that's 4 years coming to this board. If Joe has been mentioned I have completely forgotten because I can't imagine him mattering at all.
>>35888070>Nintendo game is make to litaral manchildOw what a surprise!
>>35889401> joe merrickstop forcing cringe nu-male youtubers
>>35889493at least they're games dumb sonygger, make some popcorns for me as well when you'll ''play'' your 60$ cinematic experiences
>>35889509>youtubersMan, this thread is really drawing in the summerfags.
>>35889203This is too funny.Just because I don't pay attention to some shithead on twitter? I post here and play games. I don't look into news, watch homos on youtube, or any of that shit.Wanna see my collection games from every gen? You're a fucking tard if you think everyone on here cares about that shit.
>>35889509>look ma! i used the buzzwords!Pathetic.
>>35889568>Not knowing about THE leak/news website since fucking G/S
>>35889601Knowing about pokebeach and about who runs it are two different things.And again, if I don't care about news or leaks why would I go there or even in the threads.I hide leak threads, I don't like spoilers.I don't watch previews for movies I really want to see either, some people aren't fucking nuts and need instant info.
Show me a pokémon =/= forcibly use that pokémon in battle to defeat every single gym trainerGuys what the fuck, chill
>>35888918>with over 10 ads
>>35889648>this year>still having YouTube ads
>>35889638Anon, you have to realize that forcing you to have one of those two types on your team in the first place is still pretty bullshit. No other Pokemon game has held your hand that tightly.A better reason to chill out, though, is that they've already said that LGPE aren't meant for the kinds of people who frequent /vp/ and that we're getting a more traditional game in 2019. They basically said "Hey, /vp/, don't buy this, save your money for next year and we promise we'll make it worth your while maybe, we're still Game Freak so don't get your hopes up too high :^)".
>>35888070>Gen 3 remake removes Battle Frontier>Gen 1 remake removes Wild Battles, Pressing an A button to use a Pokeball, and entering the first gym without a crutchmon
>>35890124I was mad about casualization in Pokémon, but then I saw that Lady Eboshi laughing gif and now I'll just play that and laugh at the state of things instead of being emotionally invested in a series that I outgrew longer ago than I would like to admit
>>35889493>litaral>Ow>manchild>other consoles literally have a Disney game coming out with the main characters saying shit like "his heart is inside my heart"
>>35890217It's a type of bait. Either a falseflagger, legitimate underage, or a girl. Those are the only ones who use that type if posting style.
>>35888132This, I've already written this off completely. Gen 8 is what I care about.
>>35888070>Go to check it>Post removed: "Use a Text Post!"lmao Reddit
>>35888132Stop being naive you fuckwit.This WILL affect the main series. By which I mean entirely replace it when they remember they aren't capable of making one game, let alone two.And since this targets the brain dead it absolutely will sell better than the actual main series so when they drop one it won't be this you fucking imbecile.
>>35890290>can't criticize gamefreak overlordsPlebbit at it again
>catch an Oddish as your admission ticket>don't use it in the battle>box it afterProblem solved.
>>35888070I wonder if you're forced to USE a grass or water type, or if you can just show one to Jim Gai and then you can change your team to whatever you want.It's bullshit either way
>>35890366You show it. Forcing you to use a certain mon to challenge someone is a change to meta. Wouldn't step that far.
>>35888070Was actually defending this prior to today because it looked like some light fun for me and my girlfriend and a good way to get her young niece into pokemon. But honestly after this we're not touching this one with a ten foot pole
>>35890318Good. I hope that happens.
>>35890269Still, I don't even understand it.Is cry more like a slang? Like senpai thing.
>>35890494kek I'm glad that filter is still there desu, totally forgot
>>35888217Kantobro here. I would have loved an ebin kanto remake, even if vp called it lazy. The thing is, gamefreak we’re too lazy to even do that!If it had the same level of challenge and wild battles I’d be in heaven. GF are literally monkeypaw; the developer
>>35890547I'm pretty sure it actually took them more effort to do it this way than copy paste things from RBY or FRLG.
>Pokémon Let’s Go Pikachu/EeveeThe 14th Reason Why
>>35890630Why is it so hard to believe that I don't care about that stuff and genuinely didn't know?

>>35890657Don't worry, there's now oddish in viridian forest.
>>35890670And Bulbasaur. And Bellsprout. And Butterfree. And Pikachu that might learn double kick.
>>35890657But there no one who started with charmander beat the first gym leader in gen 1
>>35888120>while posting the starter of the gen that tells you attack effectiveness in combat
>>35890683It's about being able to pass the water/grass check, not about winning. You can't lose anyways.
>>35890693Onix's Special stat is ass, you can get away with using Ember
>>35890711To be fair, gen7 made you fight every mon without the hint once before telling you.
>>35888120IM-FUCKING-PLYING. """""Critics""""" and """"journalists"""" are going to jizz all over these games. Say it brings them back to their childhood, they love how it narrows the focus and is friendly to lapsed fans.
>>35888070this is disgusting, I guess the only way to look at it is like a 'Quest' in order to move ahead, as long as they don't force you to use that Grass/Water Pokemon then I suppose it's not that bad.Still this is game is fucking trash. Hope you Genwunfaggots are proud of yourselves, you've ruined the franchise with your stupid nostalgia.
>>35890650Because you're a dirty newfag who holds his pacifier in his asshole while trying to sound professional on a site he doesn't belong to.
>>35890835This is genuinely hysterical.I was going to quote part of it, but I can't even pick what to quote.I'll go with;>professionalGood to know I'm chatting with a professional 4chinner. Makes me feel better for the future of the site.Will you let me be a part of your secret Pokémon club?
>>35890812Literally no one in this board is to blame for this. This the fault of the casual gamers who play Pokemon go.
>>35890867By not knowing the maybe "first professional" pokémon related site stuff created in 1999, I think it couldn't show better how a newcomer you are.I bet you don't know who M00t is without a google check like a "professional 4chinner" Give me his nameIt isn't wrong, being a newfag, but you have to at least admit it.
>>35891016this is some next level shit
>>35890974And of Masuda and GF.You know they can make a game like Mario Odyssey that is enjoyed by young ones (maybe 4-5yo), casu & hardcore lovers. But at GF they don't work sufficiently hard to make it.
>>35891016Again knowing the site isn't knowing the fag running it. Also, obviously I can prove my Pokémon oldfaggotry with pictures, but there's no way to prove that I've been here significantly longer than you, which I know I have.4chan trivia is pointless, anything I answer can most likely be Googled, which of course you'll say I did.>>35891043I've seen delusional people in my day, but he might take the cake kek.
>>35891044Never forget.Ho and they gave a 9 to SM AND 9 to USUM
>>35891164desu they are the same game
>>35891164Too much water is a valid complaint.
>>35891164I like how everyone laughs at too much water, when the most absurd thing on that summary is "Post-game content" as a plus.

you know what i just had a thoughtwhat if these games are being madeso they can finally shed the baby easy gen-1 pandering format pokemon has been using since X & Yand make a proper game without being scared that they are going to lose nostalgia casual bucks

>>35888070Game is repeatedly announced to be easy and cuteTargeted at ~35 year old genwunners who now have 6 year old kids>30 year old wizards>REEEEEEE
>>35888070Alright, guys, I want to know why exactly this is a problem. I mean, if you're an experienced player, you'd probably already have a Pokemon with an advantageous typing. And if you're a newcomer, this is just another way for you to learn about Type advantages. So I'm not sure what the problem here is
>>35888201>some faggot youtuberholy shit how fucking new are you
>>35893297u senpai gets a upboat!
>>35893682Its not a problem its not even an issue. The guy only asks you to show a grass or water pokemon to enter. After that you go on using whatever you like
>>35889808Is it? I mean, the box IS in your bag so it's pretty much your choice to take the easy way out
>>35889401What does the Elephant Man have to do with this?
>>35892622Pokemon is the most piss easy and non-challenging RPG in existence. It alwasy has been. Kids could ALWAYS play it before even with just their starter Pokemon. If they can't even play baby's first RPG, then they probably shouldn't play RPGs in general.
>>35891043>>35891131Samefaggotry isn't allowed once you've created a 4chan account. Enjoy your ban!
>>35893836Yeah that's what I thought. People are blowing things way out of proportion again. That's how it seems to me at least
>>35891164That's because ORAS is far worse than them
>>35894215At this point it's almost like libel/smear campaign.
>>35888070Who the fuck cares.
>>35894311Because it's a shit bait?
>>35893836Ordinarily you can't obtain any water or grass type Pokémon before Pewter Gym. In LGPE they added Oddish to Veridian Forest just for that reason.It only seems fair since both Pikachu and Eevee are at an disadvantage going into a rock type gym first, but the "you can't proceed until you show me a pokémon" thing is still bull.This goes a bit deeper. What if you somehow blew all your money, wasted all your Poké Balls, and can't proceed? Well it looks like you can get a big pearl once a day by staring at a Slowpoke in Pewter City, problem solved.
>>35894601>criticizing something is bait
>>35894861It is a bait without context.>>35893836Stop pretending it isn't
>>35888132I was kinda looking forward to it, it looked relaxing and cute at first. I was expecting it to be easy, but they've always given some options for all players to enjoy it too. Except difficulty modes for some reason. But nope. No nuzlockes, no monotype runs, speed runs suck, you can't turn off the exp share, game makes you have an advantage, it's impossible to lose. There's no wiggle room for choice. Part of gaming is discovering things on your own and making your own adventure. But it is really shitty when a series you've followed since you were a kid favors posers. So it's not surprising that lots of people are angry, and they should be.
>>35891164I hate it when someone gives a shit game a shit score for all the wrong reasons
>>35893836but WHYWhy even program that shit in? It's like, forcing you to heal your pokemon everytime you reach a new town. Worthless unnecessary shit that just pisses you off

>>35889655>some dude uploads 30 min of unedited gameplay on fortine and gets 10 ads per videoYoutube still has ads, its just tailored for the kids now :^)
>>35888132I agree, but what people are mad about is the deterioration. The mainline games have been getting worse and worse, and now this. Yes this is "just a spin-off", but remember mystery dungeon, conquest and fucking colosseum? I was hype, but my faith is declining. There needs to be something more than just pokemon go but you don't go outside.
>>35894850Interesting point about the switching of what you find on routes. In a way, this adds to the game.
>>35888132Yepp it’s an obvious Pokémon Go game upscaled, can’t blame them, over 20 million active users. This means more money for Nintendo.
