So yeah. The Pokemon Company did the unthinkable. They got DLC! I want to hear your thoughts on the Expansion Pack and the current mods we have so far because costumes like Marnie and Ghetsis wear are OFFICIAL. Kanto Starters finally got their treatment too because they got Gmax! My Blastoise is complete and bulky!

Again, what are your thoughts on the $30 DLC?

Edit: While calculating, there are 895 total Pokemon in general. Fighting type legendary and its evolution, weird floaty deer thing, two Regis. 71% of the National is complete while 29% is still missing.

Do remind that the 200 mons are blocked until the Expansion Pass is available.

    I'm really curious as to which of the 200+ species are returning. So far, I've seen Pokémon such as Garchomp, Sealeo, Talonflame, Slowpoke and a lot of Legendaries. There's even going to be more new Pokémon like Kubfoo and its evolved form whose name I can't remember.

    If I'm being entirely honest, I'm pissed. After telling us they wouldn't patch the other Pokemon in, they turned right back around and did it anyway. Which should be a good thing, but the fact that it's only half of the missing 400 and they're behind a paywall? Not impressed.

    Well if nothing else, I suppose it makes our job a little easier.

    Personally I consider this to be their answer to "sister games" and "sequel games" they have all the new content that such an entry might bring but instead of making us pay for another one or even two games, they're making us pay for half of one, it's definitely not a perfect solution and I'd much prefer free updates for this or for the dlc to be cheaper (or for gamefreak to be bloody honest with us for once) I'm still happy to see this as it means they are listening to some feedback. UPDATE: Okay just got in game with the new update and opened my menu, really gamefreak, an ad, in a £50 game, for dlc which ISN'T EVEN OUT YET! (needless to say I am royally pissed)

    Burst out laughing when I saw the eyepiece, well done Hallow! Maybe Gamefreak employees secretly lurk around in Gamebanana? Excited for the new stuff and glad to see 200 mons returning, although i agree with the others you don't get praise for righting a wrong: they should've been included in the first place. The timeline also means we can kiss goodbye any all-inclusive new game until at least mid 2021, which means we won't see the 29% til then (unless there's a third dlc?).

    as soon as i saw the marnie and genesis eyepiece, i snickered, because we already have those thanks to hallow and aria seri :’) but as far as the pokémon situation goes, at least this isn’t being plastered off into a “Ultra Sword/Ultra Shield” situation and being sold for another 60 bucks. that being said, they should have included the rest of the pokémon. the switch can definitely handle it :/

    My response to people complaining to the DLC.

    >Smash Ultimate with $25 of Fighters Pass
    Everyone: Not complaining.

    >Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion Pack for $30
    Everyone: Not complaining.

    >Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Torna
    Everyone: Not complaining.

    >Sonic Mania Plus (for those who bought Sonic Mania before)
    Everyone: Not complaining.

    >Pokemon Sword and Shield Expansion Pack
    Everyone: COMPLAINING!!!!

    Seriously, if you like to complain the DLCs, so be it. But if you purchased a DLC in other games, why complaining when it's the same shit?

    Be happy that it's not another $60 game.

    Seriously it's just a game why do we have to complain about it, it's not like NIntendo is EA, remember that those people who make the Mario and Luigi Series went bankrupt?

    They could have made us play for sharp sword and strong shield or something, could have been a whole new game and everything we did in sword and shield would have been for nothing. I think its kinda cool that its an expansion and not a new game. I do think they should have given us all the pokes, but I can see now why they didn't. I mean I for on would rather remake than make new mons haha. That being said can we get anything from the new update and make it work now, what was even in that new update they just released?
