Forums - Nintendo Discussion - Pokemon gen 8 should ditch wild battles and random encounters.

The games wouldn't be half as fun anymore if they did that.

You casuals can play Pokemon Go and Let's Go (lowest reviewed Pokemon RPG game). Leave the real Pokemon RPGs alone.

It's actually not as it scored higher than both Emerald and B/W2.

This is exactly why review scores don't matter

I strongly disagree myself. It's an actual battle between the wild pokemon and you, rather a waggle rng minigame.

Though I think there should be a mixture of random encounters and pokemon you can encounter in the overworld.

edit: Also, it's an rpg, some grind is okay, imo.

If they keep battles they should show the Pokemon in the world so you don't have random encounters. Also for battles they should keep the option to give the Pokemon berries and other treats so you can avoid having a battle if you want. That's sounds like a nice middle ground.

Yeah, I agree. That seems fair.

I also hope we have a seamless transition from overworld to battle, so we don't have a black screen in between.



Bet with Intrinsic:

The Switch will outsell 3DS (based on VGchartz numbers), according to me, while Intrinsic thinks the opposite will hold true. One month avatar control for the loser's avatar.

The transitions in Let's go are pretty good.

I think the solution is that they do the same process with normal Pokemon as they do with legendary Pokemon in Let's Go, that is first a battle then the capture-process



The day this happens I'll start another school shooting

Would have to play first, I do actually like grinding sometimes though! xD



I'm glad you don't work on Nintendo.



I could live with the new encounter mechanic, but given that battling is the key mechanic of the core series so no, that shouldn't be ditched for wild battles. That it was, alongside the non-optional motion controls, was why I've overlooked Lets Go in the first place.
