Honestly, Lets Go seems like the extreme opposite of what I actually wanted from a Switch Pokemon game. This is like a nightmare scenario.
-Set in Kanto, easily the worst region in the games (the new layout looks extremely similar too, to the point that patches of grass are in the same place as the originals)
-only the original 151, not even including evos to gen 1 pokemon that came in other gens (kingdra, steelix electrivire, etc)
-No wild pokemon battles, only lame pokemon go catching mechanic
-The removal of random encounters for Pokemon
- Return to the stupid chibi bobblehead style of Gen 6
-Return of the walking grid system, no allowing free-form movement (This one is the most ridiculous change, especially when Sun/Moon got rid of it)
-The removal of the breeding system
-Removal of Character Customization also looks likely
-Looks like uprezzed Sun/Moon
-overpriced pokeball aaccessory and pokemon go integration
For $60, this looks like an utter cash grab.
Bet with Intrinsic:
The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.
