Better than "meh"

The best Pokemon since X, but still lacking vital improvements.

The best game since Pokémon X, with plenty of added features for longer and more enjoyable play, including post-game content. The dynamax feature is better than x moves or mega stone evolutions, the crowds add a real sense of importance to the tournament, and for the first time in a long time, there is an actual quality bad guy plot. Still, the visuals seem lazy compared to other series making the jump to HD (Luigi’s Mansion and Animal Crossing, for example), and the overall structure is nothing revolutionary. I’m growing tired of having my rival be some lighthearted kid. I want a real rival again like Blue! Anyway, this is the best Pokémon game in years but still nowhere near the top.
