For some Pokemon fans, Scarlet and Violet are the latest in a string of disappointments

Pokemon is many things to many people: a series of games that spawned an entire genre, a massive media franchise enjoyed by all ages, and a symbol of innocent fun in a world obsessed with violence and conflict. However, while it’s no secret that Pokemon is a huge moneymaker for Nintendo, it’s also become a symbol of the company’s latent conservatism and unwillingness to adapt to modern trends. Now, with the controversial release of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, some Pokemon fans are wondering what it will take for the series to finally get the overhaul they so desperately need. Others wonder if such an overhaul is even possible.

On paper, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet have a lot to offer Pokemon fans. Often labeled as a new take on the mythical “open-world Pokemon”, the games feature a lot of freedom in how to go about it, an interesting new story that has garnered rave reviews from all corners, and a return to the classic catching formula. after experimenting with Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Unfortunately, all of these positives were largely overshadowed by the game’s design flaws, and in particular its multitude of technical issues.
