Everything about Sword & Shield screams half baked rush job. If this is the best Gamefreak can manage, they should just go back to 3DS exclusives.

I can't stand reading a whole bunch text dialogue in games, it's why I quit playing Yakuza.

Sheesh even Dragon Quest makes Pokemon look so archaic in various ways

I had someone on Twitter tell me that Dragon Quest 11 is graphically on par if not worse looking than Pokemon S&S.

Get your eyes fixed or actually look these things up yourself before you let others just tell you things

Huh, Dragon Quest 11? Are we looking at the same games???

Pokemon definitely needs to evolve like dq11 and monster hunter world. Such popular titles that sell millions and yet the games grow very little with each new release. Gamefreak needs to wake up already. Take that huge risk.

Are you blind or just too lazy to see how wrong that statement is?

Pokemon Fanboys will be like: "Oh you expect Game Freak to like pay for voice actors voice bro? The Switch is like not powerful enough to handle voice actors bro. Can you not read bro and imagine the voice acting yourself? Bro Pokemon has traditionally never had voice acting. Bro voice acting doesn't affect like the gameplay so you don't need it."

No exaggeration.

Go play some games dude. Your obsession with this game is becoming unhealthy.

You have some time with the game until you beat it. After that, reality sets in and you realize there's nothing to do after that, then set arbitrary goals that don't help you outside of competitive. Most players would've gone around finding legendaries, but all the legendaries like mew are locked to an accessory, the other version of the game, or trading, but you can't even do that with Wonder Trade being axed.

100% agree it should have had voice acting.
