Pokemon Sword and Shield Review

Pokemon Sword and Shield are the 8th generation of Pokemon games, and the first main-line games on a home console system (if you don't count Colosseum and XD Gale of Darkness as main-line, as most fans classify them as spin-offs,) the Nintendo Switch. These are also my first Pokemon games since X/Y, since everything in between looked bad even from the trailers and announcements. So, how does this latest edition of Pokemon stand up against the competition? Read on, but beware - it gets a bit long....

Pokemon Sword and Shield are controversial to be sure, but the two areas I feel I need to discuss are (two of) the game's characters and the game's end-game "legendary disaster" plot. Both were poorly handled by the game, and the game's failings in these respects deserves some examination.

We'll start with the two worst characters in the game, a.k.a. the "Brothers From Hell" and why I found them to be such terribly written characters. The way these two were handled...

When we last left off, Lisa had just successfully battled Rose's entire security force of exactly ZERO grunts.

So, Rose is accompanied by some sort of... skeleton dragon Pokemon? Thing looks freaky nonetheless. Anyway he talks about his plans for energy gathering, sounding a lot like Queen Beryl. Except he didn't directly attack anybody, so he's not really evil. His plans (as most involving ancient legendary Pokemon do) had some... unintended consequences. We still have to fight,...

We last left off with Lisa leveling up in preparation to storm the Rose Tower and hundreds upon hundreds of grunts that must be waiting for her in that massive tower... right?
  • Chasing random grunt around the town square is annoying.
  • Can we not do the whole "partner with the person who calls himself a rival but doesn't know what it actually entails" battles? Finishing off his Pokemon first each time isn't a challenge, but it is tedious.
  • Also, a 1,000 foot
