If the series stays as it is, chances are fans will get bored after a while. Pokemon has to change, and we tell you why here. Temtem
We saw this with Pokemon Sword and Shield: the community that loves the Pokemon license is showing itself in an increasingly grumpy light. It seems that a small gap has been created between Gamefreak and fans of the series, which will inevitably push the game developers to make big changes for the next episodes. Pokemon must change. And the series must change for the reasons that we will discuss here.
There is no doubt that so far, no game in the main license has received such negative feedback from players as it did with Pokemon Sword and Shield. Despite everything, the game sold extremely well. But that does not prevent the community has never growled so much, and it may be the last time that GameFreak gets away with this formula … We will have to make changes to satisfy the fans.
COMPETITION IS BECOMING INCREASINGLY FIERCE
This year, the game Temtem was released on PC. It is an obvious competitor to Pokemon since it takes most of the mechanics of the game (capture of Temtem, turn-based fights). However, it offers a very refreshing vision of the genre (already, the online experience is much more current than for Pokemon) which has not failed to satisfy tens of thousands of disappointed Pokemon around the world. With a fiercer competition, we will have to make efforts…
OTHER RPGS ARE BECOMING MORE AND MORE AMBITIOUS
Especially since it is not only Pokemon-like that are becoming more ambitious on the side of RPGs. Many games of the genre offer particularly long experiences, require an investment similar to that offered by Pokemon, or even sometimes higher. A game like Dragon Quest XI is often cited as an alternative to those who are tired of the Pokemon series, especially thanks to its enchanting story and its colorful characters. Something that is missing in Pokemon games currently.
THE FORMULA IS TOO REPETITIVE
We’re not going to lie to each other: whether it’s storytelling or game mechanics, Pokemon are a little bit alike. And somewhere, it’s normal, we are looking for that same nostalgic experience. But on the other hand, it’s been a long time since we’ve been surprised by a new gameplay mechanic in a Pokemon game. Not to mention the fact that all the stories from the last 4 Pokemon games are all alike. In short, we will have to reinvent ourselves, because adding Pokemon is no longer enough!
THE PLAYER IS TAKEN TOO MUCH BY THE HAND
It’s something that can really get on your nerves after a while. The Pokemon series has been there for over 20 years, and yet we always pat these phases tutorial, these same ultra-long sequences to explain what the Pokemon, affinities types, etc…. After a while when you play a Pokemon for the 8th time, it gets very well. There could quite simply be the possibility of passing the null phases of tutorial for the players who wish it!
