Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Datamining shows Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee are as bare of content as was feared.

This does not sound very good.

I love how we are now basing a new game on content.

1, inflation is a thing which is why it's more expensive.
2, it looks good which means it's at least had a good bit of work done it make it look as good as it does which is why it's more expensive.
3, it most likely cost more to make which is why it's more expensive.
4, more people would have been brought in to develop this game which is again why it's more expensive.

It only matters about content in a game so much as to how expensive it will be but there are so many other factors that makes it pointless to complain.

It's the same price as Red Dead Redemption 2, God of War (2018), The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild, Super Mario Odyssey, Horizon: Zero Dawn, Spider-Man, and many others yet is a prettier but threadbare version of a game from 1999. Even with inflation it shouldn't be 60 dollars; even with the graphics it shouldn't be 60 dollars. Pokemon Sun/Moon look almost as good on a handheld and have considerably more content within them and they only cost 40. 

Stop being an apologist. We all love Nintendo but this is garbage. 

I had these on pre-order for 30 dollars off each (Canadian, 50 bucks a piece as opposed to 80CAD) and I cancelled the pre-orders because it still wasn't worth it at like 40% off. 

I got it all, baby!

Will link to the dataminer's twitter for anyone interested here.

- No postgame areas; Gym Leaders are rematchable post-game, but that seems to be it.
- Chaining is very easy, shiny Pokemon seem guaranteed after chains as low as 11.
- Your starter is a seperate 'forme' than other members of the species you find in the wild; they have much higher stats.
- Solarbeam and Sky Attack got stupid boosts (power 110/120 -> 200); now rival Explosion for power output.
- Entry hazards like Spikes/Stealth Rock are TMs and so more prevalent; but Rapid Spin and Defog are not in the game so they cannot be cleared.
- Happiness boosts Stats (up to +10% on all stats except HP)
- Stationary battles (Snorlax, the bird trio, Mewtwo) are limited to five minutes.
- EVs are still in the game and calculated; but do not effect stats. Possibly hinting at LGPE compatibility with next year's games.

It's literally just Pokemon Yellow in 3D, with no wild battles and nothing introduced afterwards; for the asking price of $60. Yellow itself was $29.95 when it released. FR/LG, remakes with far more features and content, released for $30 too. Double the price for less content is crap.

Wasn't $30 the standard price for new games on the Game Boy and Game Boy Advance at the time?

Again, this was made for the Go audience first and foremost so I can understand the omissions. Gen 8 next year!

Well, I for once am quite happy that it's not ultra difficult. I for once welcome an easy game that I can breeze through. And I knew what it was going to be like since the day it was revealed so I don't understand how this is shocking to some.

Substance > Style

Art Direction > Realism

I just have a feeling that Johto DLC will get thrown in there at some point, maybe as the next Pokémon content if Generation 8 comes out in 2020.

That's enough for me to want to buy it :D

If it was true I would be excited, but it's not.

I'm just excited is some form of Pokemon game that's somewhat similar to the old school but in 3D.

But also I'm a heavy Pokemon Go player so probably why it doesn't bother me as much as others? 

I'll skip that

Well ... did anyone have high expectations about those games? They would be just delusional.
Since its announcement, it was clear that this game was an entry point in the series for consumers who played the mobile game and that it would be similar to the very first Pokemon games, with improved graphics and minor changes
That was expected. At least for me.
Still, this game seems fun and I´m sure people will enjoy it.

Honestly? Ditch the 'throw the pokeball' mechanic and replace it with wild pokemon battles and I'd still play it. No lies. Not for that price, though. I don't mind that it's a remake of a 20 year old game and I don't mind that it's a simplified version of pokemon overall, but I can't get behind a game that takes SO many steps back (Especially with the lack of random battles) and yet charges considerably more than better, feature rich versions of the franchise and a LOT more than the game's original release.

I play pixel games and dark souls. I do not care about graphics in the least. It does not matter to me that this game looks great (though it's nice). The lack of features is what gets me.

I got it all, baby!
