Pokémon: Developers are not afraid of criticism

Pokémon: Developers are not afraid of criticism


On November 19, Pokémon Shining Diamond and Shining Pearl will officially land on Nintendo Switch even if in recent days some lucky ones have already been able to get their hands on them. The two remakes of one of the most beloved generations are certainly not what fans expected with a "chibi" graphic that has never impressed longtime fans since its very first announcement.

For several years now the Pokémon series has suffered harsh criticism from gamers all over the world, some of which are absolutely sensible and others are definitely exaggerated. A Pokémon Company executive explained that the developers of the titles have "tough skin" and have grown accustomed to the reviews they receive every day.

Marketing director J.C. Smith took a couple of pebbles off his shoes talking about the criticism he received from the company. “We have a group of creators and professionals working at The Pokémon Company who have faced situations that are nothing short of unpleasant. The boys therefore have tougher skin than many other people from other companies ”. Smith added that the team consults practically every day with clear ideas to develop, obviously also taking into account all the feedback received from fans. Their goal, basically, is to find a right way that puts the developer and the buyers in agreement.

It is to be considered that Pokémon Sword and Shield have received all kinds of judgments, some of which are truly acceptable. We therefore hope that both the two remakes arriving in a week but above all the highly anticipated chapter arriving at the end of January can somehow reassure the fans. What do you think of these statements? How do you relate to the Pokémon games? Let us know yours with a comment below in the dedicated section. As always, we invite you to stay tuned to our pages to find out all the possible details.

The water-type is most memorable for being part of Ash's team in the anime series.

Unfortunately, the costume just makes the Pokémon look less cute and more scary.
