Pretty gigantic difference between what the 3DS is capable of and what the PS1 is capable of. Hell the system blows the PS2 out of the water spec wise.


Of course 3DS blows PS2 out of the water, Iím not living in a cave here! The 3DS is capable of mediocre Gamecube graphics but the Pokemon Co. don't seem to realize that.

I think it may be because there on some whack time schedule to hurry up and get the game released.

If you're playing pokemon games for graphics, you're playing them for the wrong reasons

They whine about graphics, then they give them graphics and whine about content. Sigh...

I'm of the opinion that this entire topic is crappy. And I think TC's opinion is crappy.


I'm okay with the graphics myself.

Pokemon has never been about good graphics

or good gameplay. Or good balance. Or a good plot. Or innovation.


Just like almost every other sequel in existence.

The gameplay, that's your opinion on it. Many people really love that kind of gameplay, and if you don't like it, that's just your thing. That's cool, you don't have to like everything.

The balance, well, with 650 Pokemon, they've done a decent job. The gameplay balances the game for the most part, and there's a lot of diversity even though some Pokemon are clearly not good and some are clearly great. I don't expect super amazing balance, though. If there's a different game with 650 extremely well-balanced party members or fighting characters, you let me know.

The plot is just a simple thing to get you into the gameplay, which as I said is a difference of opinion. The plot has gotten somewhat better as of recently, and I think it will continue to improve over time. I don't expect a masterpiece from every game though, and I'm like to play some games that don't make you memorize everything that people say so you don't miss the plot.

Innovation has happened somewhat in Pokemon, but most people don't want innovation from Pokemon; they want a completely new game. If you're upset that Pokemon is not going to be an action RPG, that's just too bad. Those requests are ridiculous. I don't go complaining that God of War hasn't become an RTS game, or a 3D platformer. They changed the main series gameplay of Final Fantasy, and look how well that worked out.

That's my take on it, anyway. I don't go around making my opinion into dramatic statements of "fact."

And to the topic, I think the cell shading looks pretty good, though I did like the sprites. But the graphics look pretty good to me. I generally don't worry about graphics; as long as they're making decent improvements in the series, it's all good to me.
