Title
  • Everything feels like a walk in a park, which is great for people getting into the game. But this reduced the exploration aspect of the games.

  • The most use of the HMs has been reduced to just some side paths and items.

  • Breeding is made easier, which is great, but there’s no fun in going back and forth on a bicycle to catch eggs. (Having an egg incubator would have been great)

  • The touch screen menus are awfully designed. There should have been tabs on the top to switch between Pokemon Amie, ST Training and other screen.

  • The Pokemon menu’s insistence on the player to select the Pokemon’s summary to check it’s stats is pretty stupid when the top screen is empty and could have been used for it instead.

  • The sections in the bag are awful, why on earth are the outside battle items lumped with everything?

  • Berries have been relegated to a berry field, which could have been streamlined when farming. eg. the removal of weeds definitely takes way too long.

  • The post-game content is rather disappointing.

  • The introduction of items just for an evolution is near pointless (sure, this has happened before, but there’s just too many now)

  • Male players has less customization options (I can’t just get my fix from Style Savvy, y'know)

  • I know it’s only been in FR/LG and D/P/P, but there’s still no VS. Seeker*

  • I miss Secret Bases. Here’s hoping they’ll be back in the 3rd gen remakes.

  • Lumiose City is a pain to navigate

  • What is up with that camera angle change by the windmill in Dendemille Town?

  • Team Flare and Lysandre are awful villains; they’re simply annoying and cultish. I swear I wanted to kick them in the balls instead of going through some bullshit Pokemon battle
    And their goal isn’t even justifiable. Well, maybe for Lysandre, but the followers have no excuse.

  • It’s another adults-don’t-do-shit-and-let-the-kids save the day situation
  • The Champion doesn’t do shit in the story at all

  • Your “rivals”/friends aren’t even that memorable

  • Why have a friend who dances when there’s barely anything in the game to do with dancing? Why not a photographer? Or a someone who’s actively trying to take down Team Flare?

  • The gyms aren’t as challenging in terms of puzzles, except for the Ice gym. Most of them aren’t even puzzles at all.

  • Maybe it’s the decreased encounter rate(?), but the dungeons are are awfully short compared to the previous games

  • I was pretty disappointed with the ice puzzles in Frost Cavern. I honestly hoped it was going to be like the Ice Path back in G/S/C, but I was sorely disappointed.
    For example, I think there’s a TM if you turn right instead of going straight to the boss. The puzzle was merely solved by going diagonally at a certain point.

  • I guess this is because I’m getting old, but it would have been useful to use the Pokedex in battle to check the Pokemon’s type.

  • Choosing items during the battle can be a pain. How comes you can’t use the L and R buttons to switch pages?

  • Apart from that, the friend safari is pretty cool.


  • Apologies if this was incredibly negative, I’m getting old.

      i always found obtaining all the mega stones quite fun but i understand the general boredom with this one. unforgivably this game feels like it established the formula for the creation of sword and shield but i think this game is more enjoyable than people give it credit for generally.

      my opinion: GOOD ENOUGH. i like how in the game design they preferred in making it easier because they felt lots of kids would come from mobile gaming and it shows. very accessible

      still baffles me that they created arguably the best and easiest to use online service of the entire series and then scrap it for future generations

      The fact they didn't get a Pokemon Z and just had to shove Zygarde in the next game when It clearly didn't fit was a shame
