On a scale of 1 being not hyped at all, and 10 being the maximum levels of hype, I would say I'm at a 6 now ... or a 6.5.
I REALLY like the look of the region and how the game separates itself from nothing but green fields. Now we have YELLOW fields. Take that!
Seriously though, the region looks very diverse. And it looks like they're trying to make a lot of unique locales that spice up the game.
The graphics and presentation ...... well ..... I guess I'll say it was better than the pessimistic side of me was expecting? But my optimistic side is a bit bummed down! Still, they'll have time to improve that. I still think the game looks pretty nice, though it feels oddly a little bit less polished than your average Nintendo game when it's first shown ... I guess that's to be expected though, Monolith Soft had a similar problem when they first showed off Xenoblade 2. At the very least i'm excited they're trying to create locales and vistas that could really only be done on a home console.
Now ... the starters? Well, I don't follow the new Pokemon titles frequently, so I don't think I'm part of the "Starter cycle", or whatever. They just look kind of dull. The water one is particularly bad. The other two are better. I like the fact that the bunny looks like he has a bandage on his nose. But GROOKEY IS THE BEST. GROOKEY IS MY BOY. Overall, they could have done better, but I'll wait to see the other evolutions.
I hope they improve the framerate before release, and I HOPE they aren't lying when they say they're trying new things.
On the plus side, this is yet another example of good marketing. We didn't see them spend 4 minutes on Let's Go, and in fact they only focused on the new games. Thanks Nintendo and Gamefreak, you guys are going in full swing.
