Pokémon needs to evolve and I'm surprised it hasn't since deciding to move to the switch. They could of gone full BotW with Sword/Shield but decided against it. Based on this I would of assumed they didn't because they were continuing to have 800+ Pokémon available in the game. I guess I was wrong Gamefreak have apparently become lazy and greedy by keeping profit margins high but choosing not to revolutionize the turn based combat gameplay to a more action orientated system (FFXII). With 800+ Pokémon I do feel a sacrifice is needed however they haven't really improved anything for scarificing 700+ Pokémon. Unfortunately nothing will change unless Gamefreak give the development reigns to someone else. Can you imagine an open world action-rpg Pokémon game developed by CD Project Red? This IP deserves better.
