  • I like to discuss this here pokemon. Here I have to mention the weakest pokemon.

    1. Unown
    2. Aegislash
    3. Luvdisc
    4. Abomasnow
    5. Wobuffet

  • Some of those aren't really that weak, Aegislash especially. Now Sunkern, there's a weak Pokemon... Unown definitely suck for only being able to learn one really hard to make use of Move though. Also, there's Wishiwashi, but that one is actually quite strong when schooled, so how weak it is when it isn't really isn't a big deal. Stats aside, running stuff like Aurorus is a struggle just for all the type weaknesses alone. Ice Type in general needs a full rebalance after Fairy ruined the original niche it had.

  • @Mbun You replied to a bot. But whatever stimulates discussion. ^_^

  • @oscillator Not a very effective bot if they're just spouting random Pokemon.

    There goes that "It's their first open world game!" excuse.

  • @el-shmiablo That's a game structure thing. That doesn't impact how it runs. They compare it to Xenoblade Chronicles 2, which also technically has segments, except the segments are huge chunks of open world. It still is running as though it is open world, despite being segmented for story reasons.

    @mbun Oh, I'm aware.
    At this point it has become blatantly obvious that either GameFreak and the Pokemon Company either lack the talent to produce a game of similar quality to it's contemporaries, or simply lack the aspiration to do so because they are fully aware that people will still buy their games on droves regardless of quality, and have those same people defend said lack of quality to the grave.

    So either way, as I said, there goes that excuse.

  • @el-shmiablo Except it still runs like an open world game, so yes that excuse is still there. You really just tried to completely talk around that despite leading with "Oh, I'm aware." So you admit you're just trolling then?

    @mbun Whatever helps your narrative dude.

    now you're just expecting miracles.

  • You are all so exhausting. It's incessant.

    At this point I just find it funny. Dudes are so delusional that they think I have sock accounts on the forums.

    Spoilers: I do. I've been Yoshi this whole time.

    Why do you hate me so much?

  • Banned

    @yoshi Could be your generally toxic and abrasive attitude.
    Or the fact that you do nothing but shitpost 99% of the time.
    Or that whole thing where you stalked me and my family on social media.


    But I'm sure you'll tell yourself it has something to do with me not liking Nintendo or something equally as idiotic.

    But hey, on the topic of Pokemon!
    Youtube Video

    Looks like somebody made Pokemon Legends Arceus all by themselves, and it really doesn't look all that far off from the actual game!

  • @el-shmiablo They used preexisting models and stuff. So THEY didn't actually make the majority of what you're seeing. It is more of an asset flip situation.

  • Banned

    I know, right? Crazy how one dude took some premade assets and made a game that looks not all that far from the actual game being made by a multi billion dollar company with thousands of employees.

  • @el-shmiablo Crazy how someone can take all the work done already by a developer working under multi billion dollar company and form it sort of, kind of, not really at all the same thing, because the game isn't even out yet, so you have no fucking clue what it actually is you think this is apparently so close to. If you looked more into this, like I already did weeks ago, you'd see that anything that's actually added by this project team is embarrassing looking. You think Pokemon's effects are bad now? You should see the original "assets" this project has actually made.

    Honestly though, it is pretty cringe you're applauding an asset flip right now, doubly so one using assets from the very people you're trying to deface by applauding it. We get it, you hopped the GameFreak harassment bandwagon and want to troll people who enjoy the games now. Don't kid yourself in thinking any of this is valid criticism or meaningful discussion. You're just another bad faith troll baiting arguments and then getting upset when people dare clap back.

    @mbun Hoo boy, want to throw out a few more logical fallacies my man? I didn't quit get enough from just that post. COME ON, GASLIGHT ME SOME MORE, BABY!

    But hey, whatever helps you cope with Arceus looking like a fan game my dude.
