Yes, the game did look rather rough in its initial reveal trailer, but that is based on gameplay from a demo build running in December 2020, which gives the game and its developers, plenty of time to fine-tune everything and getting it to look more akin to the open-world Pokémon game many of us have been imagining since the release of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
