The point is this: You liked BW2, a game that had a lot of asset re-use but also improved upon the first game. "It was THAT good!" But Ultra Sun/Moon, a game we have virtually no details on at all, you're already decrying as being so horrible. "All the issues people have with Sun, Moon, Ultra Sun, a...

B2W2 were proper sequels and didn't make BW a waste of money. Yeah, it's true that we hardly know anything about USUM, but what they've told us so far doesn't sound very nice. They said it's an "alternate story" with "new additions" to what's already in Sun/Moon. Not to mention, the protagonists are...
Chaos Rush
And the "issues" me and Deokishisu are talking about are traits that are shared between BW (to some extent), XY, and SM. Unova, Kalos, and Alola are all very linear regions that don't encourage exploration. XY and SM's postgame content is a sidequest and a Battle Tower clone, while B2W2 had all this...
Bela
My pet theory is that Ultra Sun/Moon are an alternate universe to Sun/Moon, expanding on the alternate world you visit to get a Cosmog. I think that gives them the potential to make it different enough as a game, in much the way that BW2 was to BW. I don't think it's fair, or reasonable, to decry th...
Chaos Rush
If the game is as different as B2W2 was to BW, then that's great, hope everyone gets their money's worth. But if it's as different as Platinum/Crystal/Blue was to their paired games, then they can go fuck off because that means they'll be releasing DLC-worth of content as a full-priced game. Yeah, t...

So when should they make the sale to Monolith Soft? Next Tuesday sound good? I also look forward to the letter you write to them.

Actually I was thinking Nintendo and let Pokemon become full first-party.
Bela
Nintendo owning it would just make it worse. It would be even more hand-holdy and watered down than it already is. But I see what you're really wanting out of this--Amiibo support, right?!

https://www.reddit.com/r/Games/comments/2olmtb/int... Also this interview with Masuda and his comments about the lack of the Battle Frontier - he says he wants the games to be easy because there's less time kids dedicate to a single game. While I can understand that, doesn't he realize that by putti...
Bela
I'm well aware of this interview. I think it's important to reiterate that we don't know who is developing Ultra Sun/Moon yet, so we have yet to know if his design philosophy will be present in this game.
Bela
Also for the record, I didn't say you said shit about BW2--I was specifically addressing how Deokishisu is shit talking it now, when he was giving BW2 high praise earlier. Which is it, Deokishisu? It can't be that your opinion is that impaired by time. It's best not to appear flippant and hyperbolic...
Chaos Rush
I mean I get that you're apparently in the mood to start making snarky comments but I'm above that because I respect you as a person - and I want to have a discussion about the direction the games are heading. I get that you think it's unreasonable to denounce these games we hardly know anything abo...
Bela
Look, I think what gets me is that you guys seem really eager to shit on a game that just got announced, that following the release cycle, is like another game you really like (BW2). And I respect you guys more than to just be mindless hate bandwagoners, who are literally talking about writing stern...
Bela
As for how I feel about the last several games, I agree that I am not really pleased. XY were a real letdown, and felt like the bad initial release game (RS, DP) before the good remake (Emerald, Platinum). Except we never got that game. I still can't get over how the E4 didn't even have rematch team...
Bela
I also understand your concerns with a lack of post-game content. But there again, Sun/Moon gave you more than even XY had--You can fight various story characters in the title defense battles at the league, you have the battle tree for the obligatory frontiering (and the poni gauntlet to even get th...

I personally never liked Gen 5, even my oldest posts on forums can be found only being hyped for gen 5, only to be disappointed upon its release.

Nothing wrong with sequels, GSC is a sequel to RBY, but DNA Splicer was pretty ick, which seems to be what they are doing with US/M, albeit it could be Sol...
Chaos Rush
When XY first came out I was hella hyped. Then after I beat the E4 I noticed there was far less to do than B2W2 - the newest Pokémon game before XY that came out only a year before. But Game Freak didn't lose my trust yet because it was only the first game of the generation. I was very hyped for ORA...
Bela
I know this conversation is basically over, but I just wanted to add that I do understand your criticisms of the past several Pokemon games, and it does give me concern for the upcoming one. But I would rather be optimistic about what we'll be getting than just jump straight to assuming that it'll b...
Deokishisu
I just saw this and do not have the time right now to reply to each of the points you've directed to me. Give me a few days and I'll get back to this!
Bela
Sure thing~
