They still have a lot of time left to work on the graphics so I assume and hope that they will work on and make the over world graphics even better.
It's pretty clear GameFreak are trying to stick to the original style of the games. They don't have to use the shading engines. They don't have to use outlining on the models. They've deliberately chosen to. And jagged graphics are just a side effect, and I don't imagine GameFreak sticking in anti-aliasing to correct it.

Worth noting - none of us have seen 3D versions of those graphics.
