First thing I thought of when I saw Gengar was this, from a now-dead amusement park I went to as a kid lol
This is both the best and worst G-Max designThe idea behind Gigantamax Garbador is that the toys thrown in the trash inside of it Gigantamaxed with the Pokémon, right?
Then someone tossed a Master Ball.
edit: Also, it's funny to think that...
(Actual story spoilers.)
This of all mons is fought at the climax of the game.
I would also like to put forward:
Not to ignore the bottom of this but I wish to say something. When i mentioned this before I got a bunch of people including joe suggesting this was misinformation. Now can we finally just admit that the people in charge don't care to change anything because the games are not thier primary profit margins, they got films, merch , tv shows mobile games and stuff. Its been clear for a while, its why they have been making these moves that seem more tailered to very specific audiences that are generally outside of the pokemon playing base, not just casual players but lapsed old fans. The nostalgia dollar is strong and manifests in other areas
I don't see how it breaks the illusion, it's a small toy train that got thrown away and ended up Gigantamaxing along with the Pokémon.
It breaks the illusion because them being toys shows that they aren't actually big.
It's not really an immediate read. Those things look like they're supposed to be for scale, so it's like "Oh shit, there's a whole ship in there!", but then you see that they're all toys, which implies small. Within context, when you see it grow huge, it will make sense, but just as a design on its own, the toys do the opposite of making it look big as a visual shorthand.
I dunno about suspending disbelief when it comes to Pokemon moves when its always been truly absurd. Like I remember the battle buffet in Sun and Moon and im doing this to their creatures.
I don't mean like that, this is sn issue I have with the whole thing being a projection instead of the Pokemon actually growing.
I know one of the devs said that, but he was completely full of shit. "It's a projection" makes literally no sense when it comes to max raid battles and the blurbs for the G-max Pokemon on the website talk about them as if they're real (and huge) forms and not just projections. One of Eternatus's Dex entries says that it's responsible for "the Dynamax phenomenon." It's a real thing.
I really like Eternatus. It's looking like it may have out edged Giratina as my favorite edgy legendary Pokemon.
Garbodor's design goes with it being a projection.I know one of the devs said that, but he was completely full of shit. "It's a projection" makes literally no sense when it comes to max raid battles and the blurbs for the G-max Pokemon on the website talk about them as if they're real (and huge) forms and not just projections.
that's exactly how i took it. I think too many people took the word "projection" and immediately thought "that means it's a fake illusion"
It doesn't, because it never made any sense to begin with lol. I'm almost positive that there was some kind of misunderstanding or translation fuckup when the dev said that.
what was his team again, I remember
