Pokemon Fans Slam Junichi Masuda As “Out Of Touch” After Eurogamer Interview

Yesterday, Eurogamer published an interview with Game Freak director Junichi Masuda, where Masuda expressed his desire to see Pokemon Let’s GO Pikachu/Eevee laying the foundations for Pokemon for the next two decades.

During the interview, Masuda said “I’d be really sad to think that for fans, Pokemon is just hatching eggs.” He also made a lot of comments worrying fans the direction Game Freak will take with the mainline games if Let’s GO Pikachu/Eevee turns out to be a success.

Pokemon fans have responded to the interview on Twitter with plenty of angry comments. Here’s a look at some of the top tweets:

@MarioOnage64 said Masuda seems to be out of touch with hardcore Pokemon fans, and Masuda’s answers in the interview are very worrying.

Twitter user @Aiyakiu was disappointed to hear Masuda believes watering down gameplay is okay because children play smartphone games.

@starkweatherTD thinks it was all Pokemon GO’s fault.

And here’s what @jacobJonesnV has to say about Masuda’s “just hatching eggs” comment:
