this is such a weirdly conflicting game because i really hate the rushed business model the mainline games take and it shows no more than with SV, between their bizarre glitches, framedrops, and graphical issues. that said though, i really fucking enjoy this game a lot and it's the most compelling a pokemon game's really been storywise since SM, if they stick with the open world formula and are actually allowed time to refine their next game and work out all the kinks (IMMENSELY optimistic) then pokemon could be heading in a really good direction
