The Internet is wrong: Pokémon Scarlet and Violet perform well.

A reader is surprised by the reaction of some fans. Pokémon Scarlet and Violet and insists that it has no major performance issues.

We all want video game graphics to be the best, like no game has ever been, but it has its limits. Until Star Trek holodecks are a reality, every game has to choose between the level of detail and interactivity, the size of its world, the complexity of its artificial intelligence and physics engine, and a hundred other things. And the less powerful the hardware, the more compromises you have to make.

Then there are the developer capabilities, all of which have their own features. Guerrilla games, for example, are excellent in graphics but as the Horizon Forbidden West games show, they are quite mediocre in gameplay. With Naughty Dog I don’t even know how good they are, because they just don’t care and put all their effort into telling the story. And then you have Game Freak, who knows how to make a good Pokemon game but is one of the least talented developers on a technical level.

For some reason this has only really been recognized recently and while Sword/Shield and Pokémon Legends: Arceus were much worse, clearly using the same graphics engine, it’s Scarlet and Violent that have the ‘performance’ issues. is labeled as As someone who has already put dozens of hours into Scarlet I can say that this is bullshit. It’s not a pretty or high-tech game but there are very few performance issues or bugs.

I will say this right away, I think this is all Gotham Knights fault. For some reason the game started insisting to techies everywhere that it was 60fps or nothing, even in giant open world games with online co-op, where a sane person would Would not expect. But this led to people complaining about the ‘performance’ issue, which, as GC already noted, seems to be a common catch-all for anything less than photorealistic graphics. The term has changed.

Occasionally, Pokémon Scarlet can have frame rate issues, but I’ve watched it maybe three times and it’s never lasted more than a minute. I haven’t seen anything that I would consider a major bug, unless we’re counting how the camera looks in tall grass, and a couple of times when the floor is cut and redrawn. . Alden Ring does the exact same thing almost every time you load into a new area, and I’d actually say those two games were pretty similar in terms of the amount of bugs and glitches.

Except for no reason, Alden Ring’s flaws are rarely mentioned and called Game of the Year, while Pokemon Scarlet becomes the scapegoat. The game might look a lot better, don’t get me wrong, but its performance isn’t an issue. That weird low frame rate animation thing it does to some characters? It’s not a performance issue, it’s just the game working as intended – unfortunately.

Similarly, shorter draw distances and less polycharacter models have similar implications. It’s not a performance issue, it’s just the way it was built. Obviously it would be better if it wasn’t but while I’m sure Guerrilla Games, or anyone, can do better graphics, will they be as good at gameplay? I doubt it, especially as Scarlet is the best ever for Pokemon.

What bothers me here, is that people not only don’t understand what they are complaining about, but that they have somehow overlooked the last two, very similar, games. Have given in and decided to complain about this new one that tries too hard. To advance the franchise.

It feels like I have to jump on the bandwagon, want to be part of the crowd, and I blame a lot of that on those horrible tech review sites that are always counting pixels and frame rates in such a medical and Measure in an unbiased manner. It’s really scary. There have been plenty of games throughout history that haven’t been technical marvels but have been far more enjoyable to play.

As far as I’m concerned, Pokémon Scarlet and Violet is definitely in that category. This is the best version of Pokémon I’ve played since the Game Boy and the only one on Switch that tries to do something new and interesting. Yes, the graphics aren’t the best, but they aren’t laughably bad, like Arceus, so giving this game a pass and fixating on it seems crazy to me.

How the game plays and how it makes you feel should be the only things that matter, everything else is just a detail.
