(Third time I'm writing this) Alright so basically this is just gonna be a series of observations I've had after experiencing SS (Sword & Shield), I'm gonna try to keep these concise so if you want elaboration please ask so in the comments I'm going to keep things to dot points because paragraphs end up getting way too long. Also spoilers if you didn't read the title, I'm gonna be spoiling various things including post-game so leave if you don't want to be spoiled.

- The battle system is outdated, the series has been stagnant for years in this regard, given how Battles are described in the games and shown in the anime as being high energy affairs that can wreck a house, they need to iterate on them by adding more action/tactical …

This'll probably just be a one-off but whatever, the idea of this blog is somewhat akin to previous blogs I and others have done, basically we take an element of video games and do our own take on them, this is a bit different however as instead of creating something entirely new the idea is to iterate/improve on an existing concept.
I don't think it's much a provocative statement to say that Pokemon Gyms can be a bit hit or miss at times while I will say that Sword & Shield (no spoilers don't worry) stepped up the quality of the gyms over the past few generations I think it'd be good to look back at the last six generations of gyms and one generation of trials and think about we might've gone about improving them especially considering som…Read more >
Feels like it might be a good time to do one of these, basic premise, ask questions people respond with answers.Read more >

This blog is intended as a more proper announcement for this idea as well as a bit of a question blog so that I can gauge what people would like to see in such a game and also some other things.
Now this probably comes as no surprise to anyone who's familiar with my articles but one of the first things I usually end up making is the map.
This is the idea I have for the map for this Johto Remake, those familiar with Johto will immediately recognize this is not the same Johto from GSC/HGSS, the idea being that this remake would also be a sequel, …

So this might be a new blog series I'll be doing over the coming weeks (see how things go first) where we go over the shrines from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Personally I feel that the shrines were somewhat underwhelming in the game with most not really challenging the player and only a few feeling like they adequately displayed their concept and tested the player on it. One thing I find is that most shrines don't really test the player, as I feel the Shrines are sort of like levels in other games I'm going to be taking a page from one such series, Mario, specifically Galaxy, Galaxy 2, 3D Land and especially 3D World.
So for some background (feel free to skip this part if you don't care), in the four Mario Games I outlined abo…Read more >
