    The whole chairman rose thing is bizarre, because the plot would totally work if they just... took out the millenia. Say that the energy crisis is already here, and that they've been covering up the problems it has been causing, and they will run out of power in just a handful of years. Suddenly, his character makes sense.

      Yeah, he no longer looks like an insane old guy who can't wait even a second. Then it's "Oh I was trying to prevent the energy crisis from getting worst and things got out of hand" And it makes sense! Does it make Leons character look worst sense he's putting the championship battle before the crisis? Yes, but I'd say that would make you want to beat him more.

    Hop is the quintessential second child. And it's actually really tragic that we don't really get to flesh out his character but I really do feel like he's the best rival we've had in a long time.
    The game glosses over it (because it's pretty clearly an incomplete game, but w/e) but Hop sees a ton of pretty classic parental neglect. Like, none of his mom's or his grandmother's dialogue talks about him. There are only pictures of Leon on the shelves and walls.
    He's got big shoes to fill and his personality is pretty consumed by trying to disappoint everyone by not being the Champion at age 10 like older brother was.
    After losing to Bede he starts literally showing signs of clinical depression and we can't do anything about it other than worsen it by STOMPING HIM AGAIN.
    We kind of just crushed his hopes and dreams to the point that he _fucking quit and decided to be a Professor instead_ and we don't really get to talk about it at all. Because the story's over.
    Seriously. He owns 33% of the Legendaries in the region (kind of sad for another reason) and he fucking quit being a trainer because we beat his ass over and over again.
    You know who Leon gave a Charmander to? Not his fucking younger brother.
    He probably _could_ beat his older brother by the time we meet him last! BUT WE'LL NEVER KNOW. Because this depressed child got steamrolled over and over by life. Probably would have become the champion if it weren't for the fact that he was the unlucky bastard that happened to do his Gym challenge the one year all of the sweaty overachievers like you, Marnie, and Bede decided to compete.

      Micky S alright so let me tell you about the rivals you missed in between Black and White 2 and Sword and Shield.
      X/Y- Shauna, Tierno, Serena/Calem, and some other “rival” (I forgot his name.) All of them are friendly, but you barely battle Shauna, Tierno, and the other rival. Serena and Calem are also friendly but fight you from time to time. Shauna, Tierno, and the other rival are honestly just bad, while Serena/Calem are just ok.
      Sun/Moon/Ultra Sun/Ultra Moon- Hau and Gladion. In my opinion, they are both great rivals with lots of development, and are big improvements from X and Y. Hau is a friendly rival while Gladion kind of is and kind of isn’t. What I mean by that is that Gladion isn’t really nice to you, but you become friends overtime

      frogcupcakes Animation literally means to bring something to life... the difference would be a dynamic more emotional or whatever storytelling instead of a slideshow(and i dont thing they do slideshows so often these days in Games)

    • @siwas
      @siwas 2 ปีที่แล้ว +62

      @frogcupcakes Licht Mond also said this, but animation makes the scene more emotional, immersive, and (arguably most importantly) entertaining. animation would also enable the audience to get a read on these characters through their body language and expressions. it gives the viewer something to look at beyond words on a screen (and a still image). imagine if the scene in SUMO where the mc and lillie play the flutes was a slideshow as well? it's a jarring change in story-telling, and (for such an expensive game and profitable franchise) it's cheap and lazy. when i think of cutscenes, i think of unique camera angles, dynamic expressions and body language.
      if we had gotten to actually *see* leon struggling and hesitating to keep up with rose's far-out thinking, and if we could *see* rose being unhinged rather than some uncomfortable amalgam of crazy and composed (which can be done correctly, but i don't think is done [if at all] in swsh. most of the blame can fall on the game's overall incredibly weak storyline and writing) then it adds to the immersion and tension of the game. slideshows can be done incredibly well (such as in the introduction to Undertale), but i dont think they suit (supposedly) climactic scenes like the one where it's used in SWSH. especially not in a 3-D game where cutscenes are used elsewhere throughout.

    I know we all like to make fun of the character motivations for Rose, and honestly I think it is warranted, but his actions get a lot creepier if you look at them as manipulation tactics. Like, why the hell would he be reacting to a problem that won't rise up until 1000 years later? Because if the "great Chairman Rose" was able to stop the Darkest Day from ever happening while he is in office, he would be regarded as a hero for centuries to come. It was never about the people of Galar, he was just a slimy and manipulative billionaire who only cared about his self-image.
    The reason he interrupted the Champion battle? Because just the day before, Leon disobeyed him. Leon told Rose that they could wait until AFTER the battle even though Rose wanted to do it right then and there. And the entire time throughout the game Rose has this persona of innocence while at the same time talking down to the characters like they're stupid children that are in way over their heads. He blames Leon for not following him, he blames the overheating reactor on us because we just "wouldn't listen to reason". He abuses Leon, the player, Bede, and even Oleana. Rose is an absolute creep, and I will die on this hill.
    Or maybe I'm just giving the writers way too much credit on this, but hey it's food for thought.
