R.I.P Yo-kai Watch. It looked like it could of been a big contender but it fizzled out real quick.

Pretty much every Pokémon Clone is better than Pokémon these days.

I was waiting for yokai watch to release on switch or ps in the west. Unfortunately this will probably never happen.

Loved yokai 1 on 3ds and enjoyed it much more than pokemon sun( in which i lost interest after not that many hours, just like with pokemon sword), despite the rather weird fighting system.

Its not looking good since Level 5 closed their American branch but before it shuttered they said its still being localized as of last January. Of course Level 5 have been quiet since then but they did speak on the matter at least.

I was waiting to. Was going to be day 1 for me. I never heard of the series until much later

I absolutely could not get into Pokémon sun. I tried.

I cannot handle all the handholding. I was done. DONE.
I haven’t tried Sword or Shield. Pokémon (Ultra) Sun and Moon where so terrible that I am pretty much done with the franchise.

The fact you're mentioning Pokemon means that it isn't.

The truly successful monster raising games are the ones that carved out enough of a unique identity to not be called Pokemon clones. Almost any of the SMT games that let you recruit monsters for example. Or the "Monsters" branch of DQ games.
