I'm loving sw/sh and just finished the Pokedex last night... haven't done that in a Pokemon game for ages...
Where I'm at. I like SwSh, but its pretty apparent it needed to cook longer. Think the opening was strong, but later felt like they ran out of time. All the times you would normally go off and do a dungeon they are like "let the adults handle it, u kids go do more gyms".Sun and Moon is a much better game than Sword and Shield and XY.
I spent more than 300 hours in both XY and SM and over 70 hours in Sword and Shield by the way. I'm not hater.
I think how barebones SWSH are only really shows at the League Tournament, from there onwards it becomes clear how undercooked everything was.
Story (and it sucks major ass) is completed and all you have left is a bunch of poorly implemented features.
I'm sorry, but nope. It felt like a celebration of Kanto. Sure, SWSH panders to Kanto, but it never goes as far as XY and SM. It feels like every regional mon is represented somewhere here and the new Galar Pokémon never take a back seat to older mons like Eevee or Pikachu. (seriously, anyone remembers how Pidgey was programmed to be XY's first encounter? That's garbage)
gotta agree, the simple, small quality of life changes are huge.While I played and enjoyed all of them, Sword and Shield is highly enjoyable to me for the box access at all times, the wild Pokemon running around, and the ease of acquiring and maxing EVs / IVs for competitive play. Also, the sound track is my favorite out of any single other Pokemon game. I don't give a damn about the story in any of these games and it has no bearing on why I play Pokemon to begin with.
Absolutely. Even if you don't care about the story, every single pokémon game share the same traits. Go through them slowly and savor them. Even the worst of the series are worth it
