It's a mainline pokemon game and it doesn't do anything really fresh. If this is your 2nd or 3rd title of the series you've played then you will have a good time with it. Alas I have played pretty much every title and as much as I like amassing an army of Pokemon to mug strangers who meet my gaze... the routine has gotten stale by Pokemon X and Y.
But hey, if they take the approach of "if it broke don't fix it," fine fine fine, it's a good game. In a few years they'll give us GALACTAMAX pokemon and my lvl.100 Bidoof will dwarf planets.
I'm just a little tired of the slight gimmick changes with every new installment. No real risk trying something far and away new, and therefore no real reward. All in all, it's something to pass the time with enjoyably but nothing I'll remember.
People have lots of opinions about this game, and mine is that it rehashes the same tired Pokémon formula that I’m frankly exhausted of, but the addition of the Wild Area was interesting. I frankly dislike the Gigantimaxing gimmick, though I have disliked most of the Battle Exclusive forms that have been introduced over the course of the Pokémon franchise. Overall, it’s ok - I like some of the Galar forms, I like the Wild Area, and I like the cooking mini game. I just wish it all was a little more fleshed out. The expansion is interesting, but not enough to excite me. Overall, it’s a fine game, but not enough to be truly exciting.
