I don't play go because I have a crap phone and no Japanese sim card (yet!), but I think the "research" is just a bunch of little subquests. Catch X number of Pokemon, evolve Y number of Pokemon, do this challenge, catch that rare dude, blah blah blah.

Ah. I'll probably take dungeon exploration over that, to be fair!

Not entirely sure how the field research tasks would translate to a console Pokemon game, you get rewarded with items so whilst they're quite enjoyable to do on GO they would probably need some other kind of reward unless they make items harder to come by.

My problem with Let's Go is that they feel almost like the anti-Pokémon generation 1.

Generation 1 were released and designed at a time when there weren't massive expectations for the games to perform as multi-million dollar series, and without the expectations of hardcore fans looming over their head. So as games, they are designed in a rather pure way.

Let's Go isn't so lucky, and a lot of its new mechanics feel like they've been added in because there's the assumption that Go players would like them, not because they'd actually work well in practice. I mean, I'm sure a lot of them are harmless additions, but they do feel like they are watering down the tight designs of the original games.


At the same time it feels like Game Freak have their priorities the wrong way round with this new line of remakes and the "main" series: It seems like the main series are going to stick to old traditions as to not upset long-time enthusiasts and fans, and it's the Let's Go line that tries new things. I'd rather they were trying new things in entirely new games, rather than try them in decades-old ones where the designers are restricted by the source material.

Pokémon seems to tie itself in knots with the new things it comes up with, because it then it carries them laboriously across generations, not quite knowing what to do with them. Examples would be the Mega Pokémon and Triple Battles.

I'd say that S&M were an attempt to do some new things with the core series. The Poké Ride, scrapping gyms, even what they did with the Champion battle. Not revolutionary moves maybe, but certainly new things. Likewise I don't actually see a whole lot that's new in LGP&E: there are bits taken from the originals, and Go, and occasionally Yellow/HGSS. But it all seems a call-back to nostalgia, and/or an attempt to simplify down, and an attempt to leech (life) off the popularity of Pokémon Go.

Anyway! Look at Venusaur lolloping about! Love

I think Sun and Moon did a cracking job at reinventing the series and I hope they continue with it in Generation 8. I really think the region helped it do that more than anything because it was so different. I feel that's why remakes and ones that try and play on nostalgia like Gen 6 didn't feel as exciting.

I honestly don't expect more than a nostalgia trip from Let's Go but I think I'm ok with that, I can forgive it if some of the GO mechanics don't work because I won't be playing it with the mindset of it being a new game but a different take on the originals.

I'm the same as Treesmurf, Let's go will just be a pure nostalgic trip through Kanto with my first Gen team and that's it.
As for Sun and Moon I do like the rode Pokemon in the fact that I can finally use a full Eevee evolution team with no HM slave

The HM removal is a big plus.

With this game I'm not sure who I'll have in my team. Snorlax probably, I love the fat fella, but apart from them. I just have memories of psychics being utter bastards to beat, and without any Dark/Ghost moves (and Bug moves restricted to Pin Missile/Twineedle) that doesn't leave a lot. Not unless they carry the new moves over and Butterfree can Quiver Dance to victory, but that seems unlikely.

I'm pretty sure move sets and typing will be up to date. It has Alolan forms and Megas after all.

To be fair, that was revealed since I made that last post! But yes. Which is kind of a shame, as I maintain Megas are bobbins. I wouldn't mind if you got the Mega Stone on Victory Road and that was the only one you got. Do we know that we get Alolan forms? If so I'm all over Alolan Vulpix. All over it.

I wonder if we'll get Z-moves too? It would make sense, as that's the only way an unevolvable Eevee will be anything more than rubbish in combat.

Would much rather have Z-moves over Mega Evolution definitely so I've got my fingers crossed for them.

I've realised today how cheap this trading from Pokemon GO mechanic could get. Shiny Pokemon are a lot more frequent in it and when you do Community days you end up with even more, I got u shiny Eevee today, whilst at work!
