  1. Looks amazing. Bandai Namco should helm every Pokemon entry from here out.

    Why are spinoffs looking better than main entries?

    1. while the margin may be hard to justify, it is a olot easier both hardware resource wise and programing wise to have it look nicer in an on the rail relatively limited potential sequence of events game. Stuff only has to look good from one angle and its far closer to doing a cutscene than something like botw is. This isn’t to knock snap tbc, tmings a huge aspect, knowing when to turn which direction, what causes these limited events, but eg showing a magikarp jumping once is a lot easier to do flashily than having to have that level of quality with a wide range of attacks nd getting hit and other stuff. Similarly Pokken (though you don’t mention it) of course looks way better cause its a fighting game with a far more limited roster, and snaps will also be more limited though to a much lesser extent.
      Now this isn’t to say you’re wrong about spinoffs, See the games like battle revolution and colliseum where we saw animations with a lot more personality and detail than what we did in most average moves in swsh, and where the excuse doesn’t apply there were more pokemon in battle revolution than in swsh at launch, with the only advantage being a more powerful console vs the handhelds at the time, but far less so than the switch. But comparing an on the rails photo game to the mainline games doesn’t work as well as an argument.
