Does Game Freak have ANY kind of motivation to take this franchise to the next level, or are they going to keep cranking out BBB games for the rest of eternity? In before Pokemon Z/Z1/Z2, coming to you in 2015...and that won't score above the 80s.

It's not as if the critics weren't crystal-clear about what they disliked. Even positive reviews usually don't hesitate to note that the core gameplay formula, esp. the 1P campaign, has barely changed since Red/Blue. You can give every excuse for why it doesn't "need" to be changed, but the fact remains that it's a stale franchise.

85% is not a bad score.

It's not bad for a standalone game, but for a franchise that will soon be 20 years old, the fact that not one of them has broken above this range is very very bad. Even Madden and other "rehash franchises" receive universal acclaim every once in a while.

How would you change the game, TC? Lets hear it.

The basic formula hasn't been changed because its perfect, all GF can do is add to it which is what they did.

So basically you proved that the reviews are worthless. Madden and CoD sure as hell have innovated less than Pokemon. Yet nothing seems to stop them from getting amazing scores, right? So it's either the reviewers have just outgrown Pokemon or Nintendo isn't paying them as much.
