Simple autorigging software is available online, more expensive solutions are able to put 1000s of bones on damn buildings to create animations on their own. And yet, somehow autoanimating mostly 4-legged creatures to perform basic attacks on each other is beyond human comprehension. No, all we can do is 1 attack animation per pokemon, of said creature punching or biting the air.

    Don't get me wrong, I love Pokemon games, but let's not glorify crap effort. Pokemon are fighting the air, most of their battlecries sound like a broken amplifier. Things can be better than that.
    one game having these or those animations doesn't matter. This game is known for minimalistic animations. Spore having animation doesn't mean that every other game made after it should have at least better animations.

    Things can be different, but i don't know if it'll be better.

Though, it's almost unreal, 'cos russians usually hide their stuff well.

    Dunno, pokemon flailing at the air in 3D look very distracting and unfinished to me, actual animations would always look better to me. And yeah, I believe it's within the realm of possibility.

    Not sure if animation engine was the main reason. Even if, the technology for this sort of stuff is lightyears ahead.

    It was a new thing. And new thing takes time to make. Once you have the tools, its much faster to create.
    Just look at phone evolution over a few years. Its similar with pc games.

    My point seems to have gone somewhere above your head.
    You don't balance the 1st route, where you start out with 1 Pokemon out of 3, around just one of them. All 3 need to be viable if you want to at least pretend you did some balancing.
