Also, if this doesn't look like your cup of tea, fear not, there's another "all-new core series Pokemon RPG" coming 2019. This is a spin-off/bridge title.

It is as feared, tis not the core RPG they were referring to at E3. Ahwell, we know the game we all truely want is coming next year as I initially thought and hoped it would.



They're spin-offs so I'm happy.

I'll probably buy it purely for nostalgia.



I have mixed feelings.

The Good

-Visible Pokemon in the overworld finally after generations of waiting

-Pokeball throwing motion controls

-Co-op functionality

-Battling is still the same turn based goodness we're used to

 

The Bad

-You no longer have to weaken Pokemon before you catch them. How are they going to make catching Legendaries feel right with this new mechanic?

-The graphics, they're barely an upgrade over Sun and Moon

-The artstyle, the character models look weird, they kind of returned to the chibi style of gen 6 which sucks

-Only the original 151 Pokemon

-No sign of the rumored new Pikachu and Eevee evolutions



It's a nice trailer. That pokeball accessory looks adorable. My purchase will depend on how much it requires Pokemon Go as I'm abstaining from smart phones for as long as I can get away with it and how much they've dumbed down the captures.

I also understand that they've said a core game is coming out next year, so that's excellent news.

Edit:  So it looks like it's relying pretty heavily on Pokemon Go, so I suppose I'm out.  Still like the pokeball accessory.

Holy cow that looks abysmal. Hell, I want to say the did not show it during E3 in order not underwhelm audiences so much.

At first I was disappointed but now that we know that this isn't the big switch Pokemon switch game I'm pretty cool with it. It feels like a stop gap before we get a real switch Pokemon but I would prefer a stop gap like this over another remaster



Looks fine, don't know if I'll get it.

Also nice that they announced a core game for 2019.



Let's have a champion time!

I have mixed feelings on this. The Pokemon Go elements frighten me, but visible pokemon on the overworld and local co-op are interesting. The graphics are good enough for me and I imagine for everybody else that play the Pokemon games. I don't know, I do think it's a smart idea to have a Switch game that is more like Pokemon Go to potentially attract that crowd to the Switch. It could be a major system seller.



Looks like you're playing Pokemon GO but with the story of R/B/Y. Hard pass.
