The new Pokémon and forms look pretty good, although not sure on the Stantler evo yet. My big problem with this game is the look tbh. Those idling Pokémon models show next to no personality, the landscape looks somewhat sparse and low res.

The Switch has shown some major titles really up the game, and I was hoping this spin off would be the chance for Pokémon to do the same. It’s weird to think that Pokémon Snap might be the best looking game for the next decade.

Yea, honestly it's pretty cool that it's been two and a half decades and we're still receiving exciting content. And nice designs! Because Wyrdeer 😍

I gotta admit the graphics in the newest video don't look the best, especially for a new game by a big name developer, but I'm usually not too fussed about that. I just hope the plot is engaging since recent games have been a bit disappointing in that regard, though I never finished Sun/Moon so I can't speak about that particular series.

Yeah, well, it is on the Switch so we can't expect too much as far as graphics are concerned. Game also has 5 months until release so I am not worried about it. I imagine it will look about as good as BotW.

BotW is pretty up there in terms of graphics imo, especially when you consider that it came out at launch, which is what, two years ago? You'd think a new game would be better, but again Pokemon has never really been that cutting edge in that regard since they left their (incredible) pixel art behind. I'm sure younger players (who are apparently Nintendo's target audience?) won't take that much, anyway, as long as it looks halfway decent.

I like how L:A looks tbh. Thge landscape's got this kinda washed out aesthetic that I really like, even though the graphical fidelity isn't all that high. I'll definitely take it over BDSP's confused colour design.

Personally, I really like how it looks. The settings are pretty and the animation seems solid enough. People expect too much out of Pokemon sometimes. It would look and feel really weird if it was too detailed.

I don't think it'd be hard to make really pretty graphics considering even indie game makers can manage that. But maybe that's not their focus. Or maybe it truly will be very pretty, we just haven't seen the most of it yet c:

I think the graphics are fine, honestly. I will enjoy this game I feel. I am gonna probably preorder this bad boy ASAP or wait perhaps.

I was looking at that menu screenshot again and was wondering why it said "pastures". After looking it up (non-native speaker) I just thought to myself "I guess that makes sense, given that this plays before the box system was invented".

I do have to wonder, though: I kinda hope they elaborate a little more on this. Maybe we can even visit all the Pokemon we caught? Would be cool for sure!

It isn't too farfetch'd of an idea. We have had pastures before in the games. On Pokemon Ranch and Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee. With how advanced the game is compared to others, I can't see a reason why we couldn't. But depends on how much work they put into the games. If they games have a limited number of pokemon, which they probably do, it makes it even more possible.

But I agree, it would be nice to play with our pokemon again. With us already able to hang out with them in the trailer, that might be where we end up doing it at.
