The regular sized Pokemon are pretty much indiscernible in that Dynamax screenshot posted on this page. So we can officially retire this weak ass excuse.
That's their reasoning. Just because you don't agree with it doesn't mean we can "retire" it, so let's end that narrative. We don't decide the reason behind things, they do.
It's not that I don't agree with it, it's that their "reasoning" is demonstrably bullshit.
Even Thanos only snapped 50%, so if anything it's not dramatic enough.I've seen this thread title repeatedly over the last little while. I had been thinking to myself, "Thanos-snapped sounds awfully dramatic, posters on this forum can really go overboard sometimes!" Then I saw the chart. Holy shit, it really is Thanos-level, right down to bulbasaur and squirtle.
Apparently a different team, but that wont excuse the fact that, they should be patched in almost instantly/whenever pokemon home transfers become a thing.
Joe I don't agree with all the hate you've been getting but when something is so obviously wrong I wish you wouldn't still back up gamefreak. It's not about "not agreeing" it's about their own reasoning being contradicted by the game itself which means that it's complete BS.
Even if they said this, using that statement to explain inconsistent scaling seems like a reach. The portable screens of both the Switch tablet and the Switch lite are 720p and larger than the 3DS screens, and they were able to express larger Pokemon like Zygarde on the 3DS screen:

They're already able to contrast tall and small Pokemon in Sword and Shield like with Galarian Weezing and Rotom on the previous page.
Wailord is the persistent example of more expressive scale not working, but I'm sure there would be a way to work around it than just preserving the scale it had before, or just cutting that Pokemon. Alternatively, keep Wailord the same but size up Tyranitar, Duraldon, Snorlax, etc.
Like with following or riding Pokemon, just because there's outliers that may prevent the feature from working to perfection (yeah - Tyranitar wouldn't be able to fit in buildings or entrances if it followed the player, but they solved that in HGSS and Let's Go by having it enter and exit the Pokeball) doesn't mean I agree that it shouldn't exist. It's an aspect of the presentation that is worth bringing up because the hardware can handle it, they've already done it for certain Pokemon, and they have a smaller roster to finetune it.
Man imagine kids seeing this in Japan and looking forward to finding these Pokemon on a brand new mainline game for their Switch and then finding out you can't even access them. Especially when a lot of these are in the top 100 of popularity polls there.
If that’s goal than the 3DS games easily outclass this one both in having more new Pokemon and allowing them to find their old favorites. X&Y in particular let you catch nearly 600 without trading.
The most fun me and my friends had with Ruby and Sapphire was getting a game shark and adding all of our favorites that got cut.
That doesn't change that their reasoning is completely invalid. I could say I'm not going to buy Pokemon Sw/Sh because it doesn't have Pikachu in it. Sure, that's my reason - doesn't make it true or accurate.
Brutal. You hate to see it.
I mean, the games look to be the best games in the franchise to date in terms of non-Pokedex related content and have a TON of much needed QoL improvements. Why would fans who don't care about Dexit suddenly turn on the game after the data mine?
