Title: Pokemon Sword & Shield
Platform: Switch
Genre: RPG
Language: Japanese, English
Company: Gamefreak, Nintendo
Summary: I’m as disappointed as the next collector that the dex isn’t full but I still bought Sword (at a HUGE discount, I would not buy at full price) and I still intend to play it… speedrun style, and then go straight back to Fire Emblem Three Houses afterwards. I can’t believe they won’t even let you catch Pokemon that are above level of your gym badge limit.

So the run is done… 17 hrs and I’ve beaten Leon at the post-game Battle Tower.

Overall, I’m very disenchanted by the whole franchise from this gen, seeing as they’ve ditched Mega Evolutions for this dynamax junk. They probably thought Mega Evos were too broken for the meta, but they needed something to replace it, so they put in this more mindless version instead. ???

Not going to buy the DLC as it’s not worth the $30 price. I even got Sword at a discounted $30 price and don’t feel like it’s worth it. It’s even more insulting that Sword and Shield have separate DLC versions too. Don’t see enough people complaining about Pokemon DLC compared to when Fire Emblem Fates Conquest/Birthright had a single combined DLC price for Revelations. And people complain about not getting their worth in 3H’s DLC too, but I’m guessing almost none of those complainers bothered doing a new game run with Ashen Wolves in there, and that’s their loss.
