Hmm, okay. Here we go.>A) Not the full pokedex
This alone disqualifies it, if only because it makes everything else worse.>B) Not the huge leap in graphics.
When graphics is the reason you list as valid to cut out pokemon, the graphics should be glorious. They aren't even close.>C) Mediocre open world environment.
I list it here because it showcases how bad the graphics are.>D) Curry maker simulator
Because I always play pokemon for the stupid mini-games. No, wait. I don't. Not needed, it can be poffin maker 2.0 and it would be better.>E) Multiple cake pokemon sprites.
There shouldn't be 20+ of any pokemon sprite besides unown. If this game was so "tight" that you couldn't include past pokebros, this shouldn't even be a reality.>F) Getting rid of Megas and Z-moves.
Yeah, no, this shouldn't have happened. If they wanted to say, "Oh we are just combining the two" that would have been fine, but no, they didn't. I might change this in the future if Giga-dynamaxing is what I think it is, but until then this stands.>G) Supposed rebalancing the meta.
This is even a worse excuse than the one about the reason for not including the full dex because of memory or storage. You are making a new game, the meta is going to change regardless. A new balance will be reached.>H) Some how a Nintendo Switch game can't do what a 3DS game did.
If a previous Gen game, on a system that isn't even on par with the new one can do something your new game on a superior system can't. You have a huge issue with your game.
Any one of these are good reasons not to buy this game. Less content + extra shiny mechanics =/= good game. It equals a bad game.
