Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Pokemon Let's Go mascots

I've been thinking about this for a bit. My wife and I really enjoyed playing Let's Go together, so I hope they continue this subseries. 

But what about mascots for each generation? Should there be 2 new mascots for each generation? I personally think they should just keep Pikachu and Evee through the whole subseries for a couple reasons: it would feel like you would be taking the same mascot Pokemon with you throughout all of your adventures; I honestly don't think that they can come up with 2 Pokemon who feel like or have earned the mascot status. Yes I know, everybody has there favourites, but Pikachu is an obvious one, while I feel Evee was kind of forced at first... 

I dunno.... Personally I would take Pokemon Let's Go (Insert region here): Pikachu or Evee for each one. 
What do you think?

Let's Go Johto will have marril and togepi. Those seem plausible enough.

Though if I had any choice in the matter I'd rather

Spoiler!
GF would focus on the main series so they don't need massive content cuts and DLC to complete the next games, for fuck's sake.


You know it deserves the GOTY.

Come join The 2018 Obscure Game Monthly Review Thread.

Why not use the region's starter Pokemon instead?

Although if they do decide to stick with just 2 mascots still I hope at least one of them is from the region the games are in. It would be kind of silly not to have one of that region's Pokemon as one of the options (although GameFreak do have a habit of pandering to the gen 1 fanboys so I wouldn't put it past them).



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

Yeah, if it were up to me I'd rather they not focus on the main series and do small side stuff like Let's Go almost exclusively. Have another (better) developer handle the main series instead and just have GameFreak act as creative consultants or something.

I thought the Lets Go games were a nice fresh take on what is otherwise a very repetitive, poorly paced/grindy, and formulaic series. I'm a huge RPG fan, but Pokemon always felt like, "you played one game, you played them all." And, while that would be fine, it was the huge amount of grinding and such that bothered me, every game after the first one I played had a "Not this shit again" feeling. I think Pokemon Let's Go finally beat that by making XP gaining more varied and entertaining.



I describe myself as a little dose of toxic masculinity.

Id bet Pichu and Togepi
I think togepi is as popular as eevee, if not more.
And pichu can get some of pikachu popularity



I hope they just give up Let's Go franchise altogether

Really afraid of 4th gen remake end being another Let's Go game



Maybe Let's Go was a one off to buy more time for Sw/Sh development??



Just make it one game and call it the region (I.e. Let’s Go Johto!). But GF won’t do that because they’re too greedy.
