Pokemon Sword and Shield have a problem and The Pokemon Company isn’t helping

Pokemon Sword and Shield have been going through a rough patch for these past few months. Though The Pokemon Company's marketing machine is in full gear, Pokemon fans keep coming back to one topic in particular: the national Pokedex, or the lack thereof. During E3 2019, Game Freak confirmed that the Pokedex in Pokemon Sword and Shield won't include all previously-released Pokemon, making them the first mainline games in the series to do something like that.

Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King Review – You Died

Disney Classic Games: Aladdin and The Lion King Review – You Died

I owned a fair number of games for the Sega Genesis when I was a kid, but two that will forever stick out are The Lion King and Aladdin.

Despite the amount of time I sunk into that game, I never managed to beat it legitimately.
