The beginning is quite easy but then you get to Zapdos dungeon and suddenly the difficulty is exponentially increased.
Honestly though, the bigger inventory space right from the start makes it more easy than it ever was. In the original you always were in need of healing items.
I don't think that'll be the case this time.
Anyway, I liked it.
BTW, the artstyle is BAE ! I like the artbook style that looks like some of the pictures from the old games :3
Yeah they really nailed the artstyle. I have a Bachelor's in Game Production, and I'm finding it very hard to tell where textures end, and models begin.
