    The games are fine, it's just that in retrospect, so many things could have been improved from the getgo, and there were so many unnecessary mistakes that could have been avoided. Like that sh***y ride music. Fricking god, it's horrible.

    However, that doesn't really explain why they chose to do third versions for Alola, yet not do them for Kalos. Were they trying to grab more cash by pairing them?

      I think it's moreso upholding a pattern then anything. They never do 2 remakes on one system, as both the second generations of a system (gen 5 and gen 7) had two games set in the same region.
      Also, it wouldn't be a very good generation if it only had one set of games, so they decided to do third versions again

        Sorry it took me so long to respond. I kind of forgot about this thread and Pokken Tournament has been infuriating me.

        Regardless I do know everyone has their own opinions and I wasn't really trying to get others to agree with me.

        I just don't understand how some of you can like this Gen because of how HORRIBLY BAD it was but whatever.

        I've stated my reasoning for why I think it was bad and no one tried responding to it or explain how they could like this OBVIOUSLY HORRID Gen.

        But whatever. The fact remains this was the WORST. GEN. YET. and Gen 8 needs to just act like it doesn't exist. Again except for Decidueye.

        Regardless I think this thread has served it's purpose and I'm done with it.

        It's fine to not like generation seven.... but I wholeheartedly disagree. I find the Pokemon to be okay in terms of design. Also, just because so many things have been changed this generation, doesn't make it a horrible generation...

        Alola's culture is different from the other regions, so honestly, it's really unfair to flake it for that.

        (also all the yokai watch comparisons are really annoying.... Yokai Watch is not even airing anymore, fyi.)

        I think you should probably refine your definitions of "fact" vs "opinion".

        Not sure you're seeing the same topic as me, but lots of people explained why they liked it. Short term memory issues on your part maybe?

          Gen VII had a lot of interesting features, though the faults have definitely begun to show themselves at this point in time.

          Festival Plaza was a mistake that should not have been made mandatory for online play.

          While I got some goodies from there, the plaza wasn’t all that spectacular in the grand scheme of things. Not helped by how low-ranking shops are still being offered at random even after reaching Rank 100.

          The cutscenes, while a major step up in terms of graphics, were no doubt tedious to sit through to the point where it is an unfriendly sight that discourages second playthroughs. If the recent SuperStar Saga remake allows you to fast forward some cutscenes, there really isn’t any excuse why USUM cannot be bothered to implement that option.

          Many Alolan Pokémon really should have had a better speed stat to begin with. (Looking at you, Decidueye, Crabominable, and Vikavolt!)

          No player should be forced to use older Pokémon because many new ones lack a good speed stat or the bulk and recovery to make up for the insane amount of slow new Pokémon.

          The Ultra Recon Squad were cool, but they should have been used more often, preferably if they were made to be the main villains instead. Ultra Megalopolis should have been this Lumiose City-like metropolitan area instead of a linear corridor.

          There should have been Alolan Forms for Johto Pokemon that were left out in the original games, as well as more Z-Moves for many Alolan Pokemon.

          Seconded. When they initially announced the Ultra Megalopolis, I was expecting a massive dungeon filled with Ultra Recon Squad grunts to fight and challenging puzzles to solve, especially considering we haven't had dungeons like this for quite a while. When I went in there I was...disappointed, to say the least. I hate how they blocked off certain areas with caltrops and only give you a hint of what's going on behind them, and then just to rub it in, make it just one single corridor instead of the massive dungeon that I was hoping. Honestly, there's just so much potential that place could have had, but it just went to waste.

          Hype backlash at its best.
