No, user scores and audience reception don't mean anything anymore, they bought their metacritic score, they bought a 9.3 from ign. If the customer opinion doesn't match that they can just say it's because upset trolls are review bombing it which is an illegitimate and disrespectful practice, how dare they when morale at game freak is already so low...
They've already bought and paid for a consensus opinion there's no room for something as small as how customers feel about their purchase to get in the way of that.

It's not the amazing console pokemon I wanted, but it's certainly better than Sun and Moon.

After starting a game yesterday I've found that it's an inoffensive offering and I like the qol stuff that you get off the start.
Instead of them slowly including new things it's already there and you can now fish without getting the old rod from some old fart fisherman.

How many of those reviews are 35-year-old bearded men unreasonably mad about some inconsequential bullshit?

Pokemon is the WWE of videogames and long time fans are having a hard time coming to terms with that. Luckily the mod scene is stepping up and adding things to the game that fans were missing. The last game I bought was heartgold. That was ten years ago and it still keeps me occupied.

>it's for kids so who cares if it's bad
The inconsequential bullshit is that it's a bad video game, the series is still charming, there's heart and all that, it's enjoyable, but it has a fuckton of issues and it compares poorly to older games in the series, let's go Pikachu and eevee, and other games from other series. They went in with raised expectations and delivered a product that would have disappointed even without them.

It runs badly, it looks bad, it's animated badly, most of the attack animations are the Pokémon’s model being picked up and rotated like master hand is playing with the action figure, the sound design is flat and lifeless, the soundtrack is bland and repetitive and the few good songs get used so often they lose all impact, it has weird uncanny valley cutscenes where these badly animated models gesture at each other and flap their lips but with no voice acting or sound effects whatsoever. More subjective but the story is bland and kind of disrespectful to its audience, they stick you with unlikable characters who refuse to go away, it's almost all just people explaining things to you as a detached observer, there's a plotline about the region and the legendary Pokemon in it and this is revealed to you by every couple gyms another character will show up and just tell you about this and then leave to go solve the mysteries on their own while you do your stuff. It's very clearly setting up a sequel like BW2 to follow through on all the threads it just leaves hanging.

From a game mechanic perspective dynamaxing is not fun and it just drags out the battles and doubles down on the sound design and animation issues as what are supposed to be these big dynamic fights are boring slow and lifeless, the special gigantomax forms are locked behind post-game raids so even if you have one of the Pokemon who do it you're not allowed to use them, the gym leaders can but your Pokemon aren't special enough,and you don't get the special enough ones until you're past 90% of the opportunities to use them and the end of any casual player's playthrough.

This is glossing over a thousand inconsequential little things that together add up to just make the game feel rushed, unfinished and low quality, LGPE had a lot more polish in a lot of areas.

I spent the last month playing Digimon cyber sleuth, and if I was a kid and these were my first exposure to both these series I would have ended up a lifelong Digimon fan who doesn't really care about Pokemon.
The fact that there are a lot of fanboys, and that it's a series for children, really doesn't excuse it just being a bad product.

Pokemon is the highest grossing franchise in the history of the world, yet they refuse to actually put any of those massive profits back into the games, because pokemon just prints money no matter what they do. It's got so much monentum that they can just float for a few years without even doing anything. WWE has all of these symptoms.
