Pokemon Go

Recommended Posts

I wish I still played. It was real nice for my calfs, but it's just kinda boring

I'm disappoint in myself for getting hyped over the game and disappointed in Nintendo for not holding Niantic to the standard of quality that damn near every other Pokemon game has. They had 20 years worth of well established, ready to use content to work with and they used almost none of it.

To me the thing that kind of signed the death warrant of Pokemon Go is it fails of both fronts.

 

It's a tad too complicated, with poor explanations of how anything works and very unforgiving on new players once gyms have high level players sitting in them for your casual gamer to really get all that hooked on it. Especially when you factor in the spawn areas set for the various pokemon make it very hard to get a meaningful collection going without a lot of travel, unless you are very lucky with where you live.

 

But then on the flip side they striped out too much of what makes pokemon, well, pokemon to really capture the pokemon game fans and hold on to them - for them it just sort of became a quick fix of pokemon to tide them over between ORAS and Sun & Moon.

I feel like if they at least had dueling, the game would be a lot more popular. Match people based on level, ELO, and location, plus schedule some real-life local tournaments and I think you have a pretty cool end game. As long as you add a little more depth to combat, you'd have a solid fan base.

 

I get that gyms are a lot easier to implement than an online tournament with matchmaking (especially since the game currently isn't really multiplayer and you'd have to spend a ton more on infrastructure just to get it to work), but I wouldn't release anything until I have that. I understand that's probably a funding issue, but Nintendo should have no problem forking over the money upfront. They'd easily make it back.

Didn't they make like a gazillion dollars the first week or so?

So I've noticed this thread's regulars all follow similar trends.

 

RPG is constantly dealing with psycho exes.

Muggi reminds us of the joys of polygamy.

Saq is totally oblivious to how much chicks dig him.

I strike out every other week.

Kalphite wages a war against the friend zone.

Randox pretty much stays rational.

Etc, etc

Yes they did.

 

There's a fan explanation as to why the game is so shitty that I enjoyed but it doesn't make the game any more enjoyable. Basically the game takes place ~35 years before generation 1 and all the rudimentary fundamentals ate because the world doesn't know how to utilize pokemon yet. That is, until the great pokemon war

Yeah they made a ton. They could've spent another hundred million on setting up multiplayer infrastructure and still made a ton of money

To me pokemon go is now just a thing the odd "kooky" friend goes on about and I just nod and smile and carry on chaining Mareanies or w/e to finish my livingdex, which is a mighty shame really.

 

It was sort of okay when it first launched, but the fact they didn't get much needed improvements out quite quickly and actually ruined crucial features just made it too much of a "lets check my phone" oh theres ANOTHER ratata here? How nice.

 

I mean multiplayer as mentioned would've been a big help but also offline functionality - as in don't make me have the app open to count steps, create notifications on my phone if I go i range of pokemon I haven't caught or specific pokemon I chose to be notified of etc.

I don't actually play, but the Generation 2 Pokemon came out today.

“I had a feeling we weren’t coming back from this fight when it began.”

“Do you have any regrets?”

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”

“Mmmhmm.”
