There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
The graphics quality is really low, and there is some terrible pop-in with assets. Considering Breath of the Wild did this all very well it's not a limitation of the switch.
The plot is meh from what I've seen so far. Kinda lame that it's an isekai (person transported to a alternate / distant world). I'm really hoping the gameplay picks up but right now there isn't much to it and I am several hours in. I really wanted to love this game but right now it's just OK. Maybe a little mediocre after getting hyped up from the reviews.
I want to talk about the negatives first. This game in terms of graphics, it's has a look of a game from 15 years ago. There are some glitch in the game but hopefully gamefreak can fix it in the future.
For the positives, this game let's you play on your own pace. The music is good, the world feels more alive than the previous main pokémon games, and there are some improvements in gameplay.
Overall, I would recommend this game to anyone who wants to play a pokémon game for the first time and to those who have played the main games. It doesn't have online PvP but for me it's not very important. 4/5 stars. I would love to see a pokémon game like this in the future.
the story is lame. the level design is horrible and the quest are too...
the art is a shame... compare to all other title....
the controle is horrible too.
colision in the worl are messy...
alway have to pass by the village to go on one of the different area....ALWAY have to talk with the "professor" to "BANK" your pokemon....................................
(i wont talk about the sound design or even the boss fight...)
it's just GRINDING stuff to beef pokemon and make stuf like pokeball...
all you need to do is juste have a powerfull pokemon and you will up the other by doing nothing... (all pokemon alive in your team geting xp when you kill an other one. even if you didn't send them on the field... ) => it kill the proud feeling to traine your team...
have a lot of potential... but totaly ruined by all those stuff....
However it does have issues, it can get repetitive, the game graphically looks like it came from the Wii Era and there is no voice acting in this game. So in many ways it still feels like an outdated game.
However I enjoyed my experience with it overall. I recommend it to any Pokémon fan or any parent who has a kid interested in playing one of the games for the first time.
