Palworld Controversy

From its announcement, Palworld has been labeled as Pokémon with guns. There is no doubt that this label has aided the game's rise to fame, though it comes with its controversy. Many have compared Palworld's creatures to different Pokémon in past games such as Eevee, Pikachu, Vulpix, and Piplup. Because of this, many are under the impression that Nintendo will prevent the game from blossoming shortly after early its early access period.

On the other side of this controversy, many state that Nintendo could learn from Palworld, aiding in the production of better Pokémon titles in the future. This is thanks to the stale nature of the Pokémon games in recent years and the lack of innovation.
