The Pokemon Sword and Shield Interview: "We Knew at Some Point We Weren't Going to be Able to Keep Indefinitely Supporting All of the Pokemon"We talk to Game Freak about the battle potential of Dynamax, the decision to narrow the number of available Pokemon, and the move into a new era.www.usgamer.net
The combat part is BS and they know it. Regional pokemon also get the change to shine regardless of what happens as they are the normal experience for most of the userbase.And now that they're on the Nintendo Switch, we're creating it with much higher fidelity with higher quality animations. But even more than that, it's coming down to the battle system. We're making sure we can keep everything balanced and give all the Pokemon that appear in the games a chance to shine.
And the "higher quality animations" they have shown of old pokemon really stretch the definition of "higher quality".
