    Pokemon Let's Go Pikachu, Let's Go Eevee



    And here we have the first Pokemon games on Switch. Bastardized remakes of Gen 1 with a shitton of Pokemon Go vomited all over it. And unless they're hiding the UI for the sake of the trailer, it even looks like they took away battling a Pokemon to capture it.

    Fuck this shit.

    I hope this isn't what we got hyped about. I was expecting a better version of the classic RPG pokemon where the moves all have animination and the base game covers Kanto, with DLC covering all the other regions or something...

    Actual Gen 8 games come out next year, so it looks like this is all we're getting for remakes for now.

    It really sucks, since at least they could have made good Gen 1 remakes for Switch, instead of giving us this watered-down casual trash.

    Did you read my first post?

    Unless your excitement was referring the announcement of actual main series Pokemon games on Switch, these remakes are watering down the games a ton, and even removing the ability to battle wild Pokemon before you catch them, in addition to taking a lot more inspiration from Pokemon Go as well. You can't even evolve your starter, even if it's Eevee.

    They're doing everything possible to casualize these games and ignore the hardcore fanbase, which is an absolutely awful decision in my opinion.

    Haven’t they been doing that for years now though? I’m more excited for spin offs now since the main games are no longer fun for me anymore. Gen 5 was the last generation I liked:

    Honestly, I'm much more hyped about a Yellow remake like this than I would be remakes of Diamond and Pearl. I honestly can't complain.

    Tbh I'm torn
    This doesn't look fun, but a remake or new gen is kinda boring already

    It looks like a very fun kids game. Kids are going to love it.

    The real world is cold! The real world doesn't care about spirit! You want to be a hero? Then play the part and die like every other Huntsman in history! As for me, I'll do what I do best: lie, steal, cheat and survive!

    So the rumors about this were true. I didn't think they would be. But they were.

    Looking into it some, I like the look and feel of this.

    I can see it working out well in the home and just for fun. I want that Pokeball Plus.

    hmm is this the standard price?

    I might consider this when the price drops off a bit. Original series is always good.

    not gonna lie, the pokemon heart gold/soul silver function is really cool

    I'm not sure how I feel about the capture system. Battling exists as normal, but if you can't fight and train your pokemon in the wild then how do you do train? Is there some sort of level progression system against gyms or something?
