Pokémon has been around for a long time, about 20 years in fact. Many players who haven’t played a game since the Red/Blue/Yellow days are coming back, and more still that have followed the series from the beginning up until now. The series hasn’t changed all that much since its humbler days, only evolving slowly over time, and spawning spin-offs. But the main series has been on a strictly linear path, and this title decided to shakes things up a bit. Although it does lack some features, suggesting it might have strayed off a little bit from the ladder it was stuck on.
