Nintendo fans were eagerly waiting for The Legend of Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom’s midnight launch as it was one of the most anticipated releases of 2023. While the quality of the new Zelda game did not disappoint players, Pokemon fans were disappointed with the release of Scarlet & Violet. They believe that the game lacked effort compared to Tears of the Kingdom and are wondering what went wrong.
Reason for Disappointment
Reddit user daniel-mca posted a question on the Pokemon subreddit, comparing the effort put into the Generation 9 games with the Breath of the Wild sequel. He believed that Game Freak could have given a game they could be proud of instead of producing poorly animated, choppy, and laggy games constantly. Fans speculate that the rushed development of Scarlet & Violet might have resulted from Game Freak’s consistent release schedule with minimal improvements.
Lack of Quality in Recent Pokemon Games
Toothless1886 mentioned that Game Freak takes small steps towards improving the games in every generation, which feels like they do it purposefully to receive praise for the bare minimum. Redd_ddd also said that the lack of quality was not just limited to Pokemon games, as recent Kirby games like Forgotten Land and Return to Dreamland Deluxe also highlighted this.
Expectations from Next-Generation Console
The next generation of Pokemon games will likely release on a next-generation Nintendo console, which might perform better than Scarlet & Violet, considering that the device won’t be six years old.
