Have you guys seen the comparisons on reddit to that Chinese bootleg game? It's night and day, the bootleg gave every Pokemon unique animations, and has the attacks actually coming from the Pokemon (meaning physical moves actually connect, Blastoise actually fires water from cannons, Charizard shoots fire from its mouth instead of just randomly in front of it, etc). There's a smaller available roster, but it's incredible.
for any other series, that's just normal tbh lol. like, if you see digimon for example, another monster series, they use their attacks like that too. gamefreak are just really incompetent, it shouldnt be praise that a dragon breaths fire out of its mouth in a video game
