Nintendo really riding the pokemon train hard lately. They've announced a Detective Pikachu Sequel (obviously to ride the movie hype); Pokemon Masters, which sounds like a very bare-bones version of the usual gameplay; Pokemon Home, which i really don't know what it actually does; and Pokemon Sleep, which I guess is less a game and more an app but it does say 'gameplay' so idk.
Adding in Let's Go Eevee and Pikachu, and Sword and Shield, It really feels like they're just over-saturating the market and milking the name for all its worth at this point

Detective Pikachu honestly just looks like Ted except with a talking pikachu instead of a talking stuffed bear. Pass...

Have these been confirmed to all be Game Freak developed games or are the all made by different devs? Too much content at once puts me off looking into any of them. The main series plus a few spin offs were fine. This is a bit excessive. I feel bad for the kid whos parents inevitably buy them the wrong title

The only title I replay is Blue every few years yet my favorite gen was 3

The trailers gave me the same impression. The dude bro voice actor didn't help

Nigga, everyone knows Gen 1 or 2 was the best.

I'm just waiting for more info on Sword and Shield. Phone Game will likely be free, I might check it out when it actually releases, til then, it's a Phone Game, who cares.
