Evolves into Ginisspint and eventually Ginissbarrel. It has "export forme" which is basically the same but weaker in every way and it's ability is replaced by "Knock off" which has the explanation "Just get a local porter or stout instead, it'll be better".

Maybe it isn't fair to say that the new standard, just that Pokemon is beginning to market their more casual games harder than their traditional core games. I could just be vastly out of touch though. I don't keep up enough with pokemon anymore. They didn't give Farfetch'd or Delibird evolutions did they?

I think the marketing was just a lot easier (and passed around by more people) because of the nostalgia factor of going back to revisit Kanto. Like it all hammered home on the "you played this as a child, get back to it!!" Rather than marketing it from a "you played the app, now play the game!!" standpoint.

They definitely still market the hell out of their traditional core games, and they have continually added things to cater to the more 'serious' pokemon audience (chaining for hidden, more transparent and easier IV breeding come to mind). If anything I think they just realise that they can pull money from more casual folks AND pull it from traditional fans in similar amounts, so they are going to continue with that as a mild diversification to ensure that the pokemon brand keeps going after they push through a 1000 pokemon.

Also naw no Farfetch'd or Delibird evolution. However, would love mega delibird. Just throwing presents around with 600 base state fuck yeah.

>According to Game Freak live at E3, "players will be able to transfer their Pokemon from Pokemon Home, only if they are in the Galar region Pokedex [so old Pokemon are possible, but only if they are in the new game]."

Holy shit, man. I remember when I spent a ridiculous amount of time breeding, EV/IV training back in Pokemon Y. For what? We should have seen this coming since we can't expect GF to include all 2000 monsters in the game 8 generations from now, but it still kind of stings.

I also felt it was a bit stupid at first, but I'm not gonna knock it right away. It's literally the raid mechanic carried over from Pokemon Go, except you're raiding with other people over the internet. Eh.

Dynamaxing is dumb as hell. They just took Z-moves and went "But instead...its THREE turns." But I think the whole raid thing with the giant pokemon is a neat way of doing things. Just wish they kept the giant pokemon to that.

Yeah agreed, seems like a step back from mega evolutions. Which weren't always great but at least they looked cool and they were kinda rare in the story mode.

Being unable to transfer a huge chunk of all the stuff I have EV trained and leveled is probably going to be a deal breaker for me.

Unless they release an update down the line or fix this shit with whatever games come after Sword & Shield.

Total bullshit that they're apparently removing mega evolutions completely as well? I mean, if they don't make any new ones that's fine, but removing the existing ones? What the fuck am I supposed to do with something like a Beedrill or Lopunny now?

>"Junichi Masuda reaffirms that the sheer volume of high quality animations and desire to balance further resulted in the decision to block transfer of some Pokémon"

Game Freak is a lazy fucking company, and I'm glad people are calling them out on it in full force right now. It's long overdue, especially after what they did to Battle Frontier in ORAS. Why can't they just hire third party developers if animating 800 pokemon is too tough for them? You'd think that since Pokemon is finally coming to consoles, they'd be a bit more ambitious.

This turn of events has me so disappointed.
I let the lack of Battle Frontier in ORAS slide. I overlooked the rush-job they've done with so many of their games.

I thought Dynamaxing was stupid as Hell, but hey, at least we'll have the biggest Pokémon lineup yet, right? RIGHT?!

I seriously hope this teaches them a lesson at Game Freak, but that's unlikely.

It's a huge let-down for me as well. If I remember right, some pokemon won't be in the new games at all. Luckily I still haven't played anything after Black/White 2, so I've got a few options to hold me over until they fix their shit (if they fix it).

Time constraints. Nintendo expects a new Pokémon title each year.
Not enough time with a constantly growing bestiary of creatures.

Then again, it's not like all the models need to made from scratch each time, so it's probably just laziness and arrogance considering the game will turn a profit no matter what.

I totally undetstand this policy change, but if you're going to have less pokemon, there's no excuse for having shit animation with zero expression.

That's probably the worst part, they're basically taking away content without really doing much in return. Maybe we'll get more bullshit like contests and other "social" crap nobody cares about.

Nothing to do with balancing, in fact it will probably be more unbalanced as a result of this. Imagine they leave salamence/garchomp in but drop pretty much all fairy types. It's more to do with time constraints/laziness on Gamefreak's part.
