It was the most fun I've had playing a pokemon game since Ruby/Sapphire so good for them :party:

 

I'm waiting for crown tundra before purchasing the full DLC, I'm wondering if others are too. It would definitely boost the sales even further

I pre-ordered the DLC as soon as they announced it :lmao: 

 

I'm jealous of those who will buy the game after The Crown Tundra. They will enjoy the whole thing from the very beginning. Really thinking about creating another profile to enjoy the full experience. :smitten:

Everytime I think about switching like a [email protected] and buying this game I see these huge numbers and I give up.I won't be part of this.

Well congrats but the game sucks. It literally puts me to sleep at night, cause it is so boring. My friends thinks the same too.

Ruby/Sapphire deserve top three so that’s a crime. 
 

Sword just isn’t... that interesting? Like I enjoy playing it and will continue to do so but I beat the story in like a day. Which admittedly isn’t THAT uncommon for Pokémon games but the level of easiness in this particular game is just something else... 

 

Also, being such a big fan of the GameCube releases (Colosseum and XD) I was really hoping they were going to do something new, interesting, and engaging. And what we got was the most basic plot with the easiest gyms/trainers in the franchise. And to top it off the Pokémon selection (particularly from gen II and III) is lacking. Eh, I’m being too harsh but so far the game has left much to be desired.

It was fun and I enjoyed it 
Good pokemon designs & characters and an okay story
I was underleveled the whole time (I didn't use the empty area at all) :skull:

Gen 4, 5 and 7 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

Moving to console was def a good decision, even though the game could’ve been better :clap3:

We been knew that sales does not always mean quality (in games, music, movies, etc.) as exemplified here. Not that Sword and Shield are as bad as people say imo, but the fact that you have ORAS over HGSS says it all.

First console games usually perform the best and remakes usually perform the worst.

Sun and Moon came very close to passing XY so I suspect this is changing

True, I wonder what they could hype the next game up with. I think great graphics would sell it for everyone tbh :skull: the bar is so low now

As much as I enjoyed the game (I mean, come on, it’s Pokémon), it could have been so much better. That series has the most wasted potential out of any Nintendo franchise. Hopefully, this success won’t encourage Game Freak to keep cutting corners and being extremely lazy and sloppy in their game design.

This is so sad. Pokemon was my all time favorite franchise, but now i've given up on it. They don't care about making quality games anymore. It seems like all they care about is serving some tired new gimmick every gen. I hope some day they will go back to making good games. 

 

 

 

I will be buying Pokemon Snap though :gaycat5:

XY did benefit from Go more than SM
The game was struggling to reach 15M before GO, it was selling less than BW
