Not sure about the others, but this is the style I wanted for a pokemon game, the style they chose is nice thoYeah I guess I don’t know what people are expecting graphically. The Pokémon are always gonna stay more cartoony (I personally don’t want a game with Detective Pikachu-style monstrosities) and that would look weird in a more realistic environment/with more realistic human models. Can anyone displeased with the graphic shed some more light on what they’d want?
ETA: Also the comments about it being too linear kinda make me laugh, Pokemon is always linear no matter what the map looks like. There’s a handful of gyms you can do out of order but in general the world is gated in such a way that you don’t really have much choice how to proceed.
