Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu & Eevee looks much better than I expected

I was just watching the first gameplay for Pokémon Let's Go Pikachu & Eevee and I'm baffled that it looks this good. The lightning looks good, the foliage is finally done individually, all pokémon models look great, you really get to see all pokémon and trainers on the world, everything seems vivid and alive, and so on.

You can watch the gameplay and judge for yourselves below. Skip to 2:30 for gameplay. What do you think of it?

Bet with Teeqoz for 2 weeks of avatar and sig control that Super Mario Odyssey would ship more than 7m on its first 2 months. The game shipped 9.07m, so I won

The only thing i dont like is not being able to battle wild Pokemon.



When the herd loses its way, the shepard must kill the bull that leads them astray.

It looks good, but I'm really quite annoyed about the paywall they placed on Mew. You can only get Mew if you buy the Pokeball+ controller, and because it's a Nintendo accessory, you know that scalpers will buy them all up and sell them at 3x mark-up, so that's extra annoying if you're a big Mew fan like me.



hmm, it's not really doing it for me. Graphically it's the best Pokemon game I've seen, but I was playing Digimon Cyber Sleuth while watching the video and that looks better to me. That was originally only a Vita game, yet Pokemon can't match it for graphics? Pokemon surely has a much larger budget too...

As for the gameplay, the wild Pokemon "battles" look incredibly boring. I hate that random encounters are gone, although I guess with how boring and repetitive wild Pokemon will be the ability to completely avoid those won't be such a bad thing.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

You can get it for free through Pokemon Go.

Don't you need to be like super high level to catch Mew in Pokemon Go? 

Edit: I'm reading level 25, plus a bunch of other requirements. such as 10 raid battles, a Kanto Gold medal (whatever that is), and making excellent curve throws. I'm nowhere near that.

There are 8 steps to complete and I think one of them is reaching level 25.

I just watched the Treehouse gameplay, when you walk into the grass you will have random encounters. So there seems to be a mix of the player being able to choose what they approach and wild Pokemon randomly attacking players.

Yeah, just looked at the full list and I'm not even close, doubt I could do it before the game launches. 

It honestly should have Pokemon Bank support so we can transfer the Mew's we already have into the game. Last I heard Masuda had declined to comment on rather or not there would be Pokemon Bank support.
