Some disgruntled Pokemon fans ask for refunds after playing the newly-released Scarlet and Violet games.
After playing the most recent games in the series, some Pokemon Scarlet and Violet fans request refunds. When Pokemon Scarlet and Violet were first announced by Nintendo, Game Freak, and The Pokemon Company in February of last year, many people were shocked that new Pokemon games were coming out soon after Pokemon Legends: Arceus. Since then, Pokemon Scarlet and Violet have been the subject of a lot of expectations, with fans scouring every trailer, picture, and piece of information that has been released about the games.
Sadly, the Pokemon Scarlet and Violet release has fallen short of many people’s hopes. Remakes like Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl and “third” games like Pokemon Emerald, Pokemon Scarlet, and Violet have received the worst reviews of all the main series Pokemon games. Some have attributed Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s unimpressive visuals and technical issues to the Nintendo Switch’s outdated hardware. Others have blamed the creator of Game Freak, though.
Regardless of the reasons behind Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s outcomes, the games’ current state has led to some Pokemon fans requesting refunds. Social media is flooded with posts from Pokemon fans who claim to have either requested a Pokemon Scarlet and Violet refund or successfully returned their game purchases. To let Game Freak and Nintendo know that fans have high expectations for the franchise, some people still need to share videos of Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s performance issues and ask people to refrain from buying the games.
It’s important to note that some Pokemon fans are pleased with Pokemon Scarlet and Violet, even though many are dissatisfied with the games’ graphics and overall performance. While others enjoy seeing all the new Pokemon, some fans praised the open-world design of Scarlet and Violet.
The new Pokemon in Scarlet and Violet have drawn criticism from those opposing sides of the debate. Pokemon like Flamigo have been criticized for being “lazy,” and the 1,000th Pokemon, Gholdengo, has also drawn criticism for the new Pokemon in Scarlet and Violet. On the other hand, Lechonk and the Paldea region starters have been among the most well-liked of the new Pokemon designs in Scarlet and Violet.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet’s technical issues will be resolved in upcoming updates. The general public’s opinion of the games might change if they succeed. Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are two of the most contentious plays in the long-running franchise’s history.
Pokemon Scarlet and Violet are currently available only for the Nintendo Switch.
