    There’s a Meatwad Luma in there too but the website’s avatar space cuts him off.
    And now, because I’m bored, a quick thought on why the future of Pokémon is brighter than it may seem (at least a little). Long post incoming!

    Galar lacked in graphics, interesting region design, and entertaining or even thoughtful story. To me personally, these are it’s biggest problems.

    The graphics will definitely be improved in gen 9. Sword and Shield clearly runs on the gen 7 engine, which was built for the 3DS and looks fine on that system. New generations (with a few exceptions) tend to have new engines made, and a new engine would surely be optimized for the switch. Besides, look at the graphical jump from gen 6 to 7. I’m not saying it’ll look incredible but it should look like a game meant for the switch, unlike certain parts of gen 8.

    The Pokémon series is clearly gearing up for open world. Many believe the wild area was the first step, but the real first step was Poni Plains inSun/Moon. An open-ish area that was obviously meant to test what more open Pokémon route design could be. The wild area is step 2, and while exploring it is fun for a while the lack of interesting new things to do means it gets sort of old. No real story events take place within the wild area, it’s really just an open playground for you to hang out in between story beats. The isle of armor (and the upcoming crown tundra) are the third step. Applying stories to open areas. If generation 9 isn’t fully open world I’ll eat my favorite hat.

    Galar has a really lame story. And while there’s no real evidence towards gen 9’s story being any better, I have noticed a bit of a pattern since generation 5. Odd numbered generations have more story focus, with deeper character interactions and development. While even numbered gen stories are more...by the numbers Pokemon fare. Think about the stories of Unova and Alola, the character arcs, the themes addressed, the questions asked. Then think about Kalos and Galar. They have interesting ideas sure, but the characters (in XY’s case specifically) feel lacking and I just don’t think they’re executed to well.
    This is basically a conspiracy theory but if gen 9 keeps up with the trend the story should at least be better than gen 8’s. Not that surpassing Galar’s plot is very hard.

    Now obviously I can’t see the future. Gen 9 could come out and look like an N64 game with hallway routes and a story to rival Sonic 06’s. But I think things’ll get better. The more used to a system the developers get the better the games get. From gen 4 to gen 5 on the DS, from gen 6 to gen 7 on the 3DS. You don’t have to take my word for it, and I’m not saying they’ll be these incredible mindblowing games that’ll change your life, but I think some (not all) of Sw/Sh’s problems are temporary.

    If you got this far thanks for reading this boredom inspired post.
    I am referred to as-

    Shake Zulah, Lord of all Microphones, well practiced in the ancient traditions. Do you request a voyage? I’ll supply one for you.

    I go by Frylock, and in regards to our positions it appears I am the uppermost. I will now assault you, much resembling the way a member of law enforcement may. Meatwad, my good companion, it seems you are next in line. Accompanied by your repeated door summons.

    Meatwad has acquired a large sum of wealth, Meatwad is also quite lucky when it comes to the ladies. Traveling from one area to another in his automobile, experiencing life akin to how a celebrity would. There are bits of frozen water on his various appendages. His horoscope is Taurus.

    For we are the Aqua Teens, causing the gentlemen to nod and causing the ladies to exclaim.

    No matter how hard you try you’ll always fail.

    Death is inevitable, so there’s no point trying.

    Just give up and wait till the end.

    Happiness is an illusion, love is fake.

    Time to put my little spin to it. "No matter how hard you try you'll always fail." You'll always learn from your failure. "Death is inevitable, so there’s no point trying." then appreciate life in the precious way that it is. "Just give up and wait till the end." Now, where's the fun in that? "Happiness is an illusion, love is fake." Huh, I wonder if all those Banjo reactions were fake then XD. Unless you are referring to the fact that a human being is never satisfied so they will never stay happy. In this modern world, it could seem like love is fake. But last time I checked, we are all here because we LOVE Smash Bros. and Sakurai put a lot of LOVE into the franchise.
    Fighter five was a bust and we ain’t gettin details on the next one until E3 at the earliest.

    Looks like it’s time for me to ditch this site for a while.

    See ya when things get interesting. Probably half a year from now.

    ...

    Also the fighters pass volume 2 will have a Galar Pokémon. Search your feelings, you know it to be true.

    Thank god you are fine.

    I was worried something bad happened to you on the site and you left.
    btw I just finished a replay of White 2 on Challenge Mode and you were totally right that BW2 are objectively the best Pokemon games.

    ...I still prefer Platinum though. But BW2 is really a truly incredible experience.

    I personally feel like that gens 7 and 8 have the best music (they cater to my specific tastes more) I agree gen 5 has some straight bangers

    idk, I found the 3DS Pokemon music to be mostly kinda forgettable. Gen 8 does have some great tunes although unfortunately I don't like the wild or trainer battle themes.

    Y’know I didn’t like X & Y’s music that much, but I really like the last two gens. I can understand why someone wouldn’t like them though, I’ve got very particular musical tastes.

    Regular people try to cath them ‘all.

    I personally, catch them twice.

    Because you never have enough Pokémon to fill the entire PC. And PCs need to get as much use as humanly possible to fulfill their objective.

    My head stopped hurting when I woke up.

    Thanks Noi!

    This is going to sound VERY random. but I just wanted to let you know I think you’re an awesome friend. :)

    Sounds cheesey, but hey, it’s true.
    D
    Hopefully you are enjoying Pokémon Sword!

    I know you bought that game because it said so in the friend list activity of my Switch!
    D
    What cha doing atm? Did you get the game yet?
    Hey Noipoi, I heard about what happened and I just wanted to drop in to show my support. As someone who has to deal with social anxiety myself I know all too well how much the sting of past embarrassments can hurt.

    Anyway, I'll see you in Galar. Just make sure to take care of yourself until then.

    noipoiiiii i miss youuuu
