It would be cool if for pokemon like Mawile or Beedrill they made the mega evo a regular evo (maybe a bit nerfed because Choice band Mega Mawile would be broken) and for Tyranitar, Garchomp and similar make the mega evo their gygamax form.I would hope Mawile gets buffed, gets a Gigantamax, or better yet, gets the mega form integrated as a normal evo (real talk who's gonna complain?). The developers seemed to realize how underpowered it was before XY to even give it a Mega in the first place, so it being back raises some eyebrows.
I mean, it's not gonna stop me from using it anyway but y'know.
Lmao is that really grounds to boast? A minor animation change for a handful of moves. Guess expectations hit rock bottom for some.
Oh don't worry I'm not buying ssh
Yeah, an anchor point approach would not work that well with this type of animation.Sometimes they will use designed animations in that case to simulate physics. If its as detailed as the fire effects in this game its going to look strange if the whole animation is shifting. They could probably combine the shared animation with a generated one in some way.
Thank Arceus they cut out older Pokemon to give us this masterful animation
Seriously. I don't care how you have to tweak its stats and whatever GF, just please give me back my fabulous Absol evo more permanently
"unfortunately the pokédex wasn't coded with retro-fitting evolutions in mind"
Every Pokemon has that Dynamax level though, while obviously you won't see Gingatamax forms for every Pokemon.
i don't understand how anyone can keep saying sword and shield look like upscaled 3DS games
True, but would it be so bad if for some Pokemon it would just mean a stat bonus and for others a new form? Perhaps even for the Pokemon with exclusive Z-Moves a Max Dynamax Level would be a trade off scenario where they could use it in exchange for the other 2 turns.
Man, you have the same hangups about this game as me. I recently wanted to try replaying Moon to better my thoughts on the game before Sw/Sh, but I can't even finish the main plot. CONSTANT interruptions to the point where I barely feel like I'm allowed to play the game!These games at the very least look better than Gen 7 with it's constant cutscenes and character interruptions. I guess I cant say for sure this one wont have that but with things like the Wild Area and no other important friend characters to follow you around besides Hop, they might actualy go back to letting you experience things on your own again.
Still I do wish these games were more impressive. I would be A ok with cutting the National Dex if it really meant more high quality animations/models but it really seems like more of the same.
I love them so much. I don’t even care if they’re a shit type.
