    It's pretty fun. I'm enjoying myself. There are a couple lame looking 'mons near the start, but other than that... Game is legit good thus far.

    This coming from someone who has been playing since day 1 of Red/Blue, and greatly disliked Sun/Moon. They've made so many QoL changes!!!

    Out of curiousity, any particular reason you disliked Sun/Moon so much? And when you say Sun/Moon, do you also include Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon, or is just Sun/Moon in particular?

    I haven't heard great things about Sword & Shield - kind of glad I don't own a switch. I'll keep playing the ones I own on Nintendo DS, because at least I know those ones are good.

    It felt like a Pokemon tutorial - like they were holding my hand every step of the way. Waaaay too many cutscenes as well; it was hard to get immersed in the world when they kept shoving story at you. Maybe I wasn't in the right headspace to play it, but I didn't enjoy it.

    I beat both Sun/Moon before starting Ultra Moon. I stopped after Acerola since I didn't feel like playing through a third time, even though I created my perfect team.

    I disagree and I think you should play it before you judge it. And in a logical way how are they even going to fit 900 pokemon in 1 game, it would feel cluttered imo and it would be like playing on a randomizer.

    For me so far it has been great I love the gameplay and I'm surprised about how much I enjoy the raids and even the dynamax which I was sceptical about grew on me and now I enjoy it.

    I just booted up Pokemon Black Version 2 yesterday to relive 6th grade, and I'm honestly surprised at the difference in quality and replayability. Sword and Shield isn't necessarily a bad game, but comparing that to the almost 400 HOURS I got in B2 & W2 is crazy. If anything, it'd be good if they delayed the game to add a little bit more.

    To be honest, my favourite generation is either Gen 5 or Gen 4. Don't know what it is, but it feels like they had something the later games lack.

    BW/BW2 are the only ones I didn't finish. I really disliked everything about them... Maybe I'll revisit it again, once I finish my competitive teams for SwSh. c:

    This is very true! I wasn't sure if I was going to buy it, but since eeeeverybody on my Switch Friends List has it, I decided I'd grab it too. Every hour I play makes me want to play for two more hours. It's dangerous.

    JamHammers, on the other hand, is only playing it to finish his living Pokedex and will quit right after since he isn't enjoying himself.

    Maybe this is just me, but I personally found BW/BW2 to have the best soundtrack in the main series. Everything from the title screen, to the gym leader's final pokémon, or even the low HP music and everything in between. Kyurem's and Ghetsis's battle themes also have some cool left/right effects with headphones.

    Also I'm definitely biased here, but I loved the legendaries since I love dragons.
