Absolutely crazy how Pokemon S/V became the biggest opening for ANY NINTENDO GAME EVER.

The fact that Pokemon is still a phenomenon 25 years after its initial peak...

It's also probably the fastest selling first party game ever.

 

From Nintendo:

 

Quote

We are pleased to announce that the worldwide cumulative sales of Nintendo Switch software "Pocket Monsters Scarlet Violet", which was released simultaneously on the same day, exceeded 10 million units (including domestic sales of 4.05 million units) in the first three days after its release. This is the highest number ever for global and domestic sales in the first three days after the release of software for all Nintendo game consoles, including Nintendo Switch *1 .

Also yikes at Nintendo bragging about 10 million copies sold when the general response has been that the game is an unplayable mess... maybe its not a good thing this turd of a game was bought by so many in good faith :deadbanana4:

Pokemon is the Taylor of videogames but without the acclaim. No matter what they release, people are gonna eat it. We cannot really blame stans when their power is that big. The GP is always perched for a brand new Pokemon release, especially if it's a new gen.

 

 

Also, it's obvious the world is HUNGRY for open world Pokemon games. And even though their games SUCK from a technical point of view, they never fail to make fun games. Scarlet and Violet is easily one of the best titles in the franchise.

 

The only issue is that people love the Pokémon IP itself, which can be separated from the games. 
 

In light of recent events, it would be a better analogy to say Taylor is the Pokémon IP and Ticketmaster is Nintendo/GameFreak. Swifties were pissed about what happened there, and Taylor addressed her displeasure with it. She will likely be much more involved next time she has tour tickets go on sale. 
 

If you look at other games like GoWR, the amount of effort and love put in is exponentially higher, and the sad fact of the matter is Pokémon has been delivering the same exact thing with newly introduced small features here and there for a decade now. The new games shouldn’t even have a triple A title given how they look and perform,  similar to any title assembled by a tiny team indie developer. PLA literally looked like an early PS2 game.

the games are fine, but i cannot disagree with people asking for better graphics and frame rates. this game needs a patch immediately.

 

if you focus on the story/characters, it’s a top tier game but yeah kinda hard to enjoy with the games lagging half the time.

 

anyway, the game deserves the success :clap3:

The story in SV is amazing and the open world is also way better than SwSh, but yeah, the bugs are not great.

Pokemon fans are enablers of GF's lack of care about the quality of the games and this proves it

A slay but also a whole mess :clap3: 

 

I love the games and they’re already the most fun I’ve had for a mainline new title since Gen 5. But yeah the performance etc is so :rip: we’ll never truly win on that front when they slay this hard

This franchise is absurd. More than 25 years in and hitting new commercial peaks. 

 

I wish the game could've been a home run. there's a great game hidden underneath all the ugly stuff.
