Pokémon

Random but I wish the areas in this game were better named. "South Province (Area 5)" or "West Province (Area 3)" are such nothingy, flavourless names. They're kinda giving "placeholder name" and I imagine most people won't even end up associating the names with the places. The numbered thing doesn't even have a practical use in the same way it did when it came to numbered routes in older games. Something like giving each of the provinces actual names and then sub-dividing them based on their location in the map would have made more sense.
 
We'll likely not hear a peep about any new games for a good while, with the S/V DLC probably taking all/most of 2023, but I'm definitely curious to see what's coming next. Let's Go Mareep/Marill, Bright White/Pitch Black and Legends Genesect all sound fun, though of course I'd be here for something different too.

I would like a Pokémon Colosseum remake/sequel.
 
You’re telling me! I’m fucking LOST

Aka both are homosexual disasters.
Why is this so accurate? I’m sobbing!
 
Gen 5 remakes paying B2W2 dust is going to be a mess. Ideally we get B3W3 instead.

For a Legends Unova game, I think it would be more interesting to be set in a snowy, apocalyptic future. One of the themes of the games was technology vs nature so having abandoned human settlements taken over by the wild is more of an inspiring concept to me. If they have to do a game set in the past give us wild west steam punk.

I would like a Pokémon Colosseum remake/sequel.

Colosseum and XD were so fun (yet incredibly frustrating). Great concept, and I wish they included double battles more often. Kinda weird it’s the official tournament format but you rarely get to experience it in the games.

Also did the absurd JRPG character design first before it became norm for the franchise ddd.

I think it’s to make it easier to identify the locations when chatting with friends? It’s such a huge map and it is hard to sometimes figure everything out. But I agree I would have loved them to have a name and then have that under it.
 
I have a friend who is a software engineer and much bigger Pokemon fanboy than I am who I can tell really wants to admit the games are a programming dumpster fire but it's almost like he's possessed by GameFreak themselves and won't say anything other than "yeah it's not great" while he's watching my game drop to 2 frames per second in real time while I enter a city. ddd.

He still enjoys the game despite the absolute mess it is which is fair but I feel like this holding the tongue mentality applies to a lot of Pokemon defenders this decade. On Twitter it feels like there's a lot of people who refuse to admit just how far their favorite franchise has fallen.

A game can have some technical issues while still being a blast to play. The idea that people should be acting like this is the worst game of all time over some frame drops and other likely easily patchable niggles is a bit weird. Like, it's not flawless but it absolutely is a super enjoyable experience.
