Character Profile: Tamsin White
TAMSIN WHITE Age: 24 Gender: Female Species/Race: Human/Human Orientation & Relationship Status: Heterosexual, single, love interest yet to be introduced. Physical Description: Tamsin is 5’5” with a normal build and white skin, not exceptional pale but also not tanned. Her hair is straight, dyed a shade of bright red, and is usually styled in a messy bob. Her eyes are green and she does not wear glasses. Tamsin prefers to wear comfortable clothes such as hoodies and jeans, preferably in dark colours or with quirky, fandom based designs and images. Personality: Before her housemates moved in, Tamsin was quite reclusive, preferring to spend her free time alone in the house. Surrounding herself with a tight-knit group of friends has raised her confidence and allowed her to grow more as an individual. Hard-working and determined, Tamsin spends her days focusing on her studies but is always up for spending the evenings with her more “nocturnal” housemates. She will never say no to

Untitled - Chapter One
Tamsin quickly arrives at the door. Just like the rest of the house, the door is wooden, solid and ancient. The red paint is flecked in places but this just adds to its rustic appeal. She reaches for the brass door handle but hesitates, her nerves kicking in. She has never lived with anyone who isn’t family before. What if he turns out to be a serial killer or the leader of some crazy goat sacrificing cult? No. She shakes her head. Too many late night movies and crime documentaries. She’s been careful. She interviewed a few potential roommates, got to know them before committing to anything and done her research. This is just her

Untitled - Prologue
A young woman, Tamsin White, is sitting at her kitchen table with her laptop.  She is cheerfully tapping out an email to her mother, who is currently off travelling the world. Hi Mum, I figured email would be easier at the moment considering our timezones are so different. Do let me know when you’re back on our side of the world as I miss our phone convos…! Well… I did what you suggested… I put out an advert in the local paper enquiring about tenants to move into some of the spare rooms.  Nothing fancy but I’ve already had a couple of enquiries.  In fact, someone is hopefully moving in today!!

So, regarding Pokémon.
The BBND movement wishes for the inclusion of all Pokémon, as you know.
Many pointed out that this is not possible in the time the developers have.
Many people from the movement acknowledged this, and have asked for
longer development times for Gamefreak. By supporting Sword and Shield,
the buyers also support the continuation of these outdated practices.

With the amount of Pokemon there are now, and with this amount forever increasing, this was going to happen sooner or later.  I can't think of another game that has the number of playable characters that Pokemon has, and to me, it is understandable that the developers are going to reach the limit of how many Pokemon can be included in a game.  The Switch is powerful, but it's no Xbox or PS4, at least not yet anyway.

I believe they may also be trying to extend the longevity of the game.  Raid battles have already been announced, as well as a designated area within the S&S world that will have varying Pokemon spawn depending on the time of day, weather conditions, etc.  What is to stop them having Pokemon rotation within these features and slowly releasing more and more Pokemon over time? I know it hasn't been confirmed that this is what is going to happen, but it's certainly a possibility.

Consumers are too quick to pass judgement on games developers.  Any developer will want to have pride in their work, the same as anyone in any other profession.  I never believe in judging an unfinished product, and when S&S comes out I will pass my own judgement based on what GameFreak believe to be their finished product.  In the meantime, to me, anything else is just speculation on how the game MAY work. 

This is the first fully-fledged Pokemon game on Switch, so it's a learning curve for everyone involved, from the top business owners down to the consumers and fans.

I actually know of one!
The Inazuma Eleven games have tons of
playable characters. From what I gathered,
there were about 1000 in the beginning
with more than double that in the most recent
game on the 3DS, all with unique stats,
attributes, elements and move pool.
The next game is set to release on Switch
in spring of next year and is being developed
by Level5, the guys behing Yokai Watch.
Check it out if you like, maybe you like it. :D
Tough besides this, the strength of a console
says only so much about a game. Pokémon
itself showed in the past the power of
optimization, and that Gamefreak is bad at it.

Sadly there is reason to believe that
this will not happen... The Pokémon Company
has Gamefreak on a tight schedule - the
reason for the yearly releases. It's possible
they are already working on the next games,
as they have done before and these games
having reached gold standard.
(I think that's what it's called.)
Doing the other Pokémon costs time they are not given.

As an aspiring game designer, I believe
that this is not the state Gamefreak wants
their product to be in, and that they were
cut off. After all, Junichi Masuda's statement
was not much of an official one, not even
getting shown to the especially furious japanese
audience, and the lack of information on
this topic suggests this was not a planful decision.
The decision was the Pokémon Company's, not theirs...

This is no one's first time.
Not the consumer's, who know full well what to expect from a Switch title, as even simple games like... Ring Fit Adventure (is that what it's called?) have a better presentation, nor the high-ups that believe to be able to plan their future long in advance.
