How will Game Freak ever survive the transition to Switch/HD development?

Ishihara suggested that the way the company approaches designing its main title games — like Pokémon Sun and Moon — would have to change if the new console was incorporated.

“Pokemon has been about being portable, but now there is the Switch, which is a portable home console, so it has a bigger screen and higher specs than we’re used to,” Ishihara said



Doesn't look like they have the capability to do HD development. 

Of course, they can stick with SNES-quality graphics on the Switch, though it'd look out of place.

I honestly prefer the look of the 2D Pokemon games over the 3D ones. I'd be happy with them returning to that look, much as I know it won't happen.

Where in any of that did they say they do not have the capability? It said "higher specs than we're used to" they would just have to adapt.

Just because it gets announced four months after that article, doesn't mean the game is ready to go next month. It might not release until early next year. And if its a port of Sun/Moon or even a third iteration with Stars, that's quicker to do even with the tech upgrade than doing a whole new game.

GameFreak is generally slow when moving to a new system, but maybe this time they are doing it for a port, much like Capcom is bringing Monster Hunter XX to Switch.

GF is just mad that they'll have to TRY to make the game at least look decent on big screens. They are so lazy.

Judging by how poorly S/M run on 3DS, I have a feeling any Pokemon game on Switch will be a downright mess. They can barely handle 3D in general, let alone any sort of power and HD.

I think the reason SunMo ran like poop on the 3DS was because the game was a tad of a heavy strain with all the stuff it has to process, and apparently some of the models were originally made in HD and were compressed in order to put them on the 3DS. That said, a SunMo third version could work as a sort of working experience on the Switch for the people at GameFreak. Then they can try something less original by remaking Diamond and Pearl, and actually go guns blazing with an entirely new generation.

Pokemon took 2 years to come to the 3DS, in 2 years time the Switch will be dead in the water so I wouldn't worry too much.

Isn't they recently try to recuit a graphic designer who used to work with high graphic at PS Vita level? Maybe it too late but I think they are trying.

They WON'T! There's a very good chance the Pokémon Company will go under if Gam Freak can't adapt for HD.

Wait, what's the one you used to know? The way I see it, GF always sucked, we just...didn't realize it.

Game Freak could barely fit R/B/Y on a cart. So they had to cut around 40 pokemon and implement shortcuts in the memory to save space. So you get lots of bugs just from that alone. Then they couldn't fit Johto on a single cart, so Iwata had to come in and save their ass. Game Freak are hardly some kind of legendary dev team held back by Nintendo's hardware or becoming complacent. The one he used to know is just a figment of nostalgia.

Yeah, GameFreak has always been garbage with regards to polish and efficiency.
