Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu!

Recommended Posts

The presentation still looks good overall and I am fine with how these games look, for being what they are but I just hope that next years game will take on a more interesting graphical style.

Maybe taking inspiration from Black & White but more realistic, with some elements from Sun & Moon but with a more realistic/retro approach.

Basically, I want the next Pokémon game on the Switch to be up there with Octopath Traveller in terms of a style with works really well for their next mainline game.

This will still do nicely for now though and I do get the feeling that I may warm to the game more when it releases... right now it's just kind of coming out in November and I'm not really that excited yet. ::shrug:

Super Smash Bros Ultimate comes out in December and I'm heavily hyped for that already. :D

Genuinely surprised to see complaints about the graphics! :o I think they’re absolutely fantastic. On the simple side, sure, but everything is so smooth (models seem really high poly actually) and the overall image quality is lovely.

Are you talking about the Pokémon? Because they've been that high poly since the 3DS. Same models, just on a console that can actually handle them now.

Indeed, and at a resolution that actually does them justice. :hehe:

So Gary/Red is out and replaced by a "friendly" rival? That is a bit lame.

He's probably going to still be a jerk. Look at him, he's got anime jerk eyes.

Mega evolutions are confirmed to be in the game.

I wonder if we'll see some new ones added to these titles?

What'sthe difference between the two charizards, and how do you get each evolution? I'm slowly getting warmed up for this game, really starting to like the look of it. Might be a buy for me.

Did someone call a nerd?

Mega Charizard X is the edgy black one. It's Fire/Dragon and specialises in Physical attacks. It's ability powers up moves that make direct contact. (Scratch and the like)

Mega Charizard Y is the not edgy orange one. It's Fire/Flying and specialises in Special attacks. It's ability summons strong sunlight when it comes into battle.

X is for show-offs, Y is for people who want Charizard to actually be good.

This is correct. I went the X route. :D

Hopefully seeing cutscenes for trivial things like the S.S. Anne arriving is a good sign for next year’s game.

Still really on the fence regarding Let’s Go, if I’m being honest.

Why is everyone's head so big and their face so flat?

Yeah, Jessie and James look, ehm, out of shape.

To steal a line from Andre Segers...

Neat!

Hmm I see why they didn't use brown for Eevee as it's a bad combo with yellow, but the colour they have used looks like dirty yellow.

Well, we were onto something in this thread, colour-wise. Missed chance not doing the fur covered Joy-Cons!

Dock looks great btw, but those Joy-Cons, no.

So they basically gave Eevee elemental attacks because normal is a terrible matchup against the gym leaders. Basically "fixes" Eevee's moveset which would be terrible if it can't evolve.

Okay what's with the move names...? Splishy Splash? Bubbly Jubbly?  Hurp Derpy Derp?

Pre-ordered Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu with Pokeball Plus in-store at Smyths yesterday. Decided I should be more proactive in supporting a great local toy/games shop.

It's a great place to pick up Pokémon figures too, these are some of the latest ones :cool:
