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?
Socialite Rebecca - Sun, 19 May 2019 02:32:35 EST jb9VtFWj No.229777 Reply
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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

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

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.

Honestly, I no longer care about that. All I care about is whether or not Game Freak can improve the animations, and give us neat features. Animations was the main reason for the "regional pokemon" shift. If the animations look some akin to something like what we saw in Pokemon Battle Revolution, I'll be happy. If not, I'll just think of Game Freak as a lazy company that's full of shit.

Pretty good from what I saw, it was just the water gym, but they made it look *good*, son, it's extremely pretty on the Switch, and the big battles didn't even chug at all which is a massive improvement on the 3DS games.

I mean, I'm still going to get the game because some of the new Pokémon are interesting to me. I appreciate that this will change VGC metagame and I'm excited to see how battle strategies will develop. Thank God there are no more Ultra Beasts and Landorus Ts at least.
Still, I wanted to battle with my bros on my team. It's shocking how many popular Pokémon will be unable to transition into gen 8. I hope Gamefreak reconsiders certain aspects of this decision.
If you're aiming to balance the metagame, just restrict UBs and legendaries in VGC format tournaments. Or something!
